Agejo, Hime Gyaru & Cute Buys!

Hey everyone! How are you? ♡ 

This week hasn’t been kind to me… First my eye swell up, and now I’m ill! ⁽⁽꒰ ๑॔˃̶̣̣̥ ꒫ ˂̶̣̣̥๑॓꒱ ྀྀ Autumn is definitely here. I did feel really down about it but I’m locking myself away until I feel 100%!

Today I want to talk about my super cute items from Honey LY! My bby Charli ran a shopping service while she was on holiday in Japan and I just had to order a few things that I knew I couldn’t get over here. When she was in Japan she took lots of photos of the items I wanted to double check that they were the right ones, and as soon as she touched ground in the UK she sent them off and they arrived within a day! I was so amazed! I was really ill that day so it made everything seem so much brighter.

And these are my items! Aren’t they so adorable?

I was so glad that she managed to get me this headband from Ruby Rose because they didn’t have an online shop so there was no way of getting them online. The crown dropped whilst in transit but that was easily fixed by some UVU glue! This headband is great for Hime Gyaru & sweeter styles of Agejo.

Ruby Rose Cat Ears
Tada! All fixed!

I finally got my dream item… MA*RS socks! I’ve been wanting these for so long so they were the first things I unwrapped and tried on straight away. I can’t wait to wear them with my agejo gyaru coords ♡ They are a necessity!

MA*RS socks – even the packaging is cute!
They’re the perfect length *_* I paired them with my MA*RS skirt

And a My Melody phonecase and face towel! The phonecase came with a cute lil’ charm too~

My Melody cuteness!

I’ve been wanting some more polaroid film ever since my lovely boyfriend bought me a polaroid camera for my birthday, and Charli managed to find some rilakkuma ones in Japan! Thanks so much *3*

On Tuesday she opened her shop on Facebook so as soon as it opened I immediately bought the MA*RS heart belt as I only have my GOLDS Infinity one in my agejo wardrobe. I couldn’t help myself! I can’t wait for it to arrive I’m also hoping to get some MA*RS chokers!

Anyway, you should totally check HoneyLY out because there are still lots of goodies to be bought! MA*RS, Kokokim, d.i.a belts… So many amazing items! I’m trying my best to refrain from buying anymore… But who knows? Click on the banner to be redirected to the page!

So what has been on your shopping list recently? Anything cute? Please tell me I’m not the only one spending tehehe~

That’s all for now cuties, until next time

Arrr Me Hearties~ Shopping with Pixie!

Hey everyone! How’re you today?

On Wednesday I met up with my bby Pixie! It has been so long since I last saw her – like, May? – and I’ve missed her so much!

We decided to meet up early but I woke up to my eye being as swollen as ever! ;_; I knew I shouldn’t have rubbed it when I was tired the previous night… Luckily I bought a medical eye patch to cover it because there was no way that I wasn’t going to wear makeup.

I wish I realised just how big the eye patch was before I was doing my makeup… Because when I had finished and unwrapped it from its packaging I was starting to panic. It was huge! Like it covered all of my face! I had to sew it in half and work my magic so that I could actually see out of the other eye. But it was okay in the end and I started to feel better about it ^^

I went for a preppy d.i.a look and wore this shirt that I’ve had for ages but never really wore it. I need to wear it more often because it’s super pretty!

Booo this sucks ;_;

While I was getting ready I took advantage of my situation and snapped a make/no-make face shot! Isn’t gyaru makeup so amazing? What a difference it makes! *3*

I was in a rush so I wasn’t able to take a decent outfit picture, so a mirror shot would have to do!

Pixie took me to a nice Japanese restaurant down in . I was adventurous and tried out new dishes! I wasn’t too keen on the onigiri though… At least I now know what it tastes like, and can avoid it in future. The teriyaki beef was delicious though but I forgot to take a photo of it! ;_;

 Selfies at the restaurant tehehe~ Pixie is so cute!

 After our meal Pixie presented me with a little surprise: a seifuku set from her store Pixie Bunny! Oh my gosh I fell in love with it, the colour is absolutely beautiful! I’ve always wanted to do kogal again and the colour is so beautiful! Thank you so much cutie <3

Then we did some shopping! I was silently weeping because I found a really pretty coat in Miss Selfridge but it was £84 and my student discount expired the previous day. D’oh! But I did manage to buy some posh lipstick from Illamasqua. It’s not a shade that I’m used to but I liked it!

After that we headed home~ We’ve already arranged our next meet and I can’t wait to see her again!

Oh and before I go… Pixie has brought out the love for himekaji in me again >///< I really want to have another go at it but I haven’t got the autumn wardrobe for it apart from the brown floral dress from Kawaii Gyaru Shop. It’s so sad ;_; So I’ve made a little himekaji wishlist of the things that would go with what I already have, as I need to save money at the same time. Most of these items were relatively cheap!

To also help me build my himekaji wardrobe slowly I’m going back by a few years and going to start the “points system” so that I’m working to gain points/goodies! I wrote about it in a post here.

ponytail extension / floral sweater / cute red dress / cute bowknot casual platforms / jaquard white tights / high-waisted skirt / pink lace choker / princess pearl bow necklace / bow hairclip /

That’s all for now! Until next week. Have a great weekend

Gyaru Nail Art Inspiration for All Lengths!

Yep, this week I’m going to be talking about gyaru nails (well, gyaru nail art). I realised that I buy way too many clothes and don’t really think about the small things that really make the outfit pop, and one of them is (or is it ‘are’?) the nails! I only have a few sets and I really want to start making some for myself. So I had a browse on Tumblr/Pinterest and gathered a few of my favourites.

I know it’s going to take me a while to actually get good at doing nails but I might as well look for inspiration! I’m going to split it into two sections – Dramatic & Short – because I can’t really wear false nails at work. I’ve also included some neat tutorials too at the bottom!

Please note: I don’t own any of the following images. Read my full disclaimer here.

A Busy Gal’s Life: Recent Outings!

Hey everyone! How are you?

I’ve
been doing quite a lot recently… Now that uni is over I finally have
more time to see my friends! I was going to do these posts separately
but then my blog would be so behind and I’d get annoyed at myself, tehe.

Meeting up with Charli~

So the first “meet” I had was with my bby Charli It had been ages since I saw her, and I missed her so much ( •̣̣̣̣̣̥́௰•̣̣̣̣̣̥̀ )
We didn’t meet up until much later because the trains were being an
absolute pain, but we did have time to eat some yummy food, take
purikura & some photos! Guess who was the one pulling disgusting
faces? (Idk how she puts up with me :P)

our feast!

 

She’s so cute (⑅ ॣ•͈ᴗ•͈ ॣ)

My makeup & outfit~ please excuse my boring makeup ( •̣̣̣̣̣̥́௰•̣̣̣̣̣̥̀ ) I had a teeny-tiny cut under my eye
which didn’t help, so skipped out on the lower lashes. Eurgh it felt so
strange! I went for a red & black theme and wore one of my favourite tees and my red lippy

♡ Day Out with Chewiee & Marie

When
I met up with Chewiee & Marie I decided to try out himekaji again
because I’m falling more and more in love with that style! I’m hoping to
wear it more often in between agejo & other styles, and I’m going
to try and slowly get into hime gyaru. If only I had the money ( •̣̣̣̣̣̥́௰•̣̣̣̣̣̥̀ ) I spent it all over the summer holidays! Boo ( •̣̣̣̣̣̥́௰•̣̣̣̣̣̥̀ )

We
did the usual take purikura & eat delicious food but this time we
also did some karaoke! It was quite funny because it started off with
the stereotypical karaoke songs which then slowly turned into Japanese
screamo & Within Temptation 😛 It was so fun!

I uploaded some photos of my outfit & make in my previous post here

I had Korean Bibimbap! I think that’s what it’s called anyway… It was yummy!

They were absolutely gorgeous in d.i.a, and I wish I wore d.i.a so that I could match ;_; Next time, maybe?

I really do hope I can see these girlies a lot more, together with the rest of the members from our Gal Unit JEWEL! <3

Work Meal

One
of my work colleagues is leaving to go to uni so we arranged to have a
meal together! Luckily I managed to get let off work a bit earlier so
that I had more time to do my makeup. This time I went for an elegant
agejo look as I was still in a bit of a rush.

I realised that I haven’t actually worn this dress since last year. Whoops!

Dress: MA*RS / Jewellery: Gorgeous Barbie & Primark / Bag: MA*RS / Shoes: Dorothy Perkins

The food was delicious but I didn’t take any good photos ;_; I will when I go there again

That’s
all for now cuties! I’m sorry that this is a super long post… I’m
hoping to do gal make a lot more now that I don’t have uni so maybe I
have more interesting things to post!

So what have you been up to these past couple of weeks? Anything exciting? Oh and what’s your favourite karaoke song? ;D

Until next time~

P.S Charli is running an online shop over at FB: Honey LY! She’ll be selling lots of Japanese brand like d.i.a, ma*rs… So please keep an eye out! ^^

Kawaii Gyaru Shop Review: Vintage Doll

 

Hey cuties! How are you today? Hope you’re having a good weekend so far! I can’t believe it’s September already… It’s so depressing because I’m a summer baby ;_; But I’m also really excited to see the autumn trends! And perhaps to do some more shopping? *_*

Anyway, today I want to talk about this beautiful dress sponsored by the wonderful Kawaii Gyaru Shop . It’s from the super cute brand “Liz Lisa” which I seem to be falling in love with more and more each day! I’m hoping to expand my himekaji wardrobe but it looks like it’s put on hold as I have way too many clothes.

This is a photo of it that I had taken in my first sponsored review post for Kawaii Gyaru Shop! 

Liz Lisa Chiffon Dress

I was really looking forward to wearing this because of the recent change to autumn. I couldn’t want to wear browns, reds and blacks and this dress was perfect for it! It hasn’t gotten that cold that I needed to wear a sweater as it has two layers which makes the dress great for this kind of weather. Plus, I adore the sleeves so didn’t really want to cover them up :3 

I couldn’t decide whether or not to wear it with my brown boots but as it’s still quite mild I decided to go with my new brogues! I actually bought these from the kids section (tehehehe).

Dress: Kawaii Gyaru Shop (Liz Lisa) / Bag: Primark / Shoes: New Look / Acc: Primark & Forever21

This dress is definitely a lot longer than the ones I have previously owned, which I wasn’t quite used to! But I think the length is perfect for autumn because it covers the legs more to keep them warm(er). I think the frill at the bottom makes it feel like it’s shorter because it’s quite lightweight!

And, of course, have some selfies! Please ignore my hair… One section fell out when I was sleeping so it’s not as wavy as the others ( •̣̣̣̣̣̥́௰•̣̣̣̣̣̥̀ )

Me not being able to think of anymore poses

This dress is just so perfect *3* I am in love with the pattern, especially because it has red and brown hues… I was looking for some inspo to layer this up so when I went out I paired it with a very light cream coat. I’ll show more pictures in my next post of when I went out with my London gals :3

Overall I would definitely recommend getting Liz Lisa products from Kawaii Gyaru Shop. It is authentic and they always sell really beautiful collections there. I’m currently stalking them for ideas on what to wear for winter (but I must be good and refrain breaking my bank too much). The owner is incredibly friendly and always makes quick responses, and the shipping was really quick too!

They also sell quite a lot of other brands and some Sanrio items too! *_*

Until then, have a good week m’lovelies! <3

p.s. Please remember that most of the items from Kawaii Gyaru Shop are one/off because they do not sell replicas! Everything is the real-deal, so get it before it goes! ;D

p.p.s is there anything you want to see more of on my blog? I always look for ways to improve, and your input means a lot to me! <3

Teeny Tiny Trip to London

teeny tiny trip to london, london photo booth, purikura

It was a lovely afternoon; I had just taken some photos for my beauty review (which you can see in my previous post) and was about to take off my makeup and hibernate in bed when I got a text Chewiee asking if I could meet up with her in London. My friend Amber was free and wanted to see me! She had been in England for about a week now but unfortunately I wasn’t able to meet her because of work… So I was really happy that I had the chance to meet her before she flew back home! I quickly caught the next train to London and before I knew it I was sipping bubble tea and waiting for them all to arrive.

My Birthday “Weekend”

Hey everyone! How’s it going?

I had a super fun week this week, you wanna’ know why? Because it was my birthday! Obviously not for the whole week but you get my meaning. It was the first time in a while that I actually had a “party” because for the past few years I’ve either been abroad or my friends were working etc, so I was really looking forward to just hanging out and having fun on my birthday.

My “pre-birthday” event was a barbecue at my house, and oh my gosh it was such a fun evening! I only had a few close friends and my boyfriend, so it was really cosy. I had so much food that I felt like I was having a food baby! I’m drooling at the thought of the delicious barbecued piri chicken… Yum.

I couldn’t decide whether to do agejo or himekaji so for my “pre-birthday” event I went for a really soft himekaji look, and for my birthday I wore agejo. I’m falling in love with Liz Lisa even more everyday (it still can’t beat MA*RS, but it’s getting there). This dress was, once again, sponsored by the wonderful Kawaii Gyaru Shop who I would totally recommend 100%. I noticed that they had some gorgeous My Melody bags as well to all those who are interested in sweet styles such as hime! Enter the code LIZBEE to get a discount!

After we were all filled to the brim with delicious food my mum brought out the cake and everyone sang happy birthday! It was such a pretty cake that I almost didn’t want to eat it, but cake is cake after all and I couldn’t resist.

My family and friends took the opportune moment to bombard me with those party poppers, so this was my hairstyle over the next few eyes. Sexy, right?

My Actual Birthday…

I actually relaxed a lot more on my actual birthday-day but nevertheless I dressed up in my favourite MA*RS set. I couldn’t decide whether to have my hair up or down but in the evening when I went out for a meal I had it down.

Now I’m not usually the type to display all of my presents because I don’t really see the big deal of it, but I can’t help but show off this little beauty that my boyfriend bought for me! I tried not to take too many pictures with it because the film is super expensive. 

So in the evening I went out for a meal with my friends to this new Chinese restaurant which was quite local, and I took advantage of my Chinese-speaking skills and spoke Chinese to the waiters. You should’ve seen their faces! They were so surprised! It took them a while to get used to it haha. I ordered some beef noodle soup and oh my gosh it was amazing!

All of these photos were taken by one of my friends~

Blowing out the candles of my 2nd birthday cake, tehehe
I don’t know what my boyfriend was doing but… He was funny 😛

And that was it for my “birthday” celebrations! I really enjoyed spending time with my family and friends and I felt so girly wearing himekaji & sweet agejo. Hopefully I can do more of these two styles before it gets too cold!

Hope you have a good week!

Sugar & Spice

Hey everyone! How are you?
I’ve had a fantastic week (and weekend) so far; I’m back at home with my family and friends and I didn’t realise how much I’ve missed everyone until I had to drive home. I just couldn’t wait to get past all of the traffic! I guess home really is where the heart is.

I spent the first few days meeting my old friends and having good quality catch-up time, and what’s better to catch up then over some shopping and iced coffee? Below are my three outfits on the days that I went out! 

Sweetheart
This was my outfit where I met up with my friend Annie, and perhaps the first time I wore “proper” makeup in a long time. As you can see, I couldn’t stay away from MA*RS for long. I’ve decided that it’s going to be hard to completely avoid it so I’m going to keep on wearing it until I’ve built up my hime wardrobe. It was on this day that I started my shopping spree… Whoops.

 

Top: MA*RS / Shorts: Reveal / Heels: Dorothy Perkins / 

Acc: Muse & GOLDS Infinity

I put my hair up because it got way too hot with it down… Summer is definitely here!

Lace & Frills
And this was my outfit when I went to see “The Fault in Our Stars” with my sister! I wore my new shorts and top because it was way too hot to wear the dress with it. I also wore my new shoes as well (which I adore, by the way).

I haven’t really done this sort of style before… It was really “sweet”, but I really like it! It’s completely different to what I usually wear. I followed one of the tutorials in my post “Easy Gyaru Makeup & Hair Tutorials” as I didn’t have time to style it dramatically. 

 Blouse: New Look / Shorts: Spreepicky / Socks: Primark /

I know I’m a bit behind but… Have you guys seen “The Fault in Our Stars”? I read the book so I knew it was going to happen but I still blubbed like a baby. I cried so much that my lower lashes were hanging halfway down my face. Not a good look.

Vintage Doll

This was another “sweet” coord where I wore my Liz Lisa dress kindly sponsored by Kawaii Gyaru Shop! I love it so so much, thank you sweetie Enter the code LIZBEE to get a discount!

So a little bit about the dress… It’s absolutely adorable. I felt like a doll pairing it with my new heeled brogues and lace socks, and it wasn’t too hot to wear at all despite it having two layers (which is great because then that means it isn’t see-through!) It’s really good for that casual-sweet style, and so I wore it when I met up with my friend for a meal and catch-up.

Kawaii Gyaru Shop sells lots and lots of cute Liz Lisa clothes as well as Sanrio accessories!

You should check them out! They are really nice and the owner is so lovely to talk to, and I think she has great taste. So go, buy! Tehehehe. ♡ Don’t forget to enter the code LIZBEE to get a discount!

Anyway, I guess that’s all for today. I hope you like my outfits! Have a lovely rest of the week, and I’ll see you next Sunday! Ciao~

Easy Gyaru Makeup & Hair Tutorials

There are times where I wish I could do gyaru at work. The thing is that prioritise sleep over slapping my face on with makeup, which makes those weekends for dolling up even more precious. However I do want to be an everyday gyaru wherever possible so I spent the last few weeks collecting lots of easy hair and makeup tutorials and then I thought… Why not share this collection with my readers?

Below you’ll find a whole set of hair and makeup tutorials that are great for the everyday gyaru/gal! I hope you find them useful!

Where Did the Sun Go?! Gal Day Out!

Hey guys! How’s it going?

I’ve been feeling really down lately ;_;  I can’t really pinpoint the reason behind it but I think it might be the weather? Could people’s moods be affected by such a thing? Whatever it was, I felt constantly exhausted and just wanted to curl up in bed eating chocolate and watching films.

So I was really looking forward to finally seeing some of my friends that I haven’t seen in a long, long time. However nothing seemed to go right that day; the weather was crap, my hair didn’t turn out like I thought it would, and my lashes just wouldn’t cooperate… I was experiencing almost every gaijin gyaru problem that there could possibly be! I got so fed up that I thought “Aah f*ck it” and just walked out the door and made my way to London.

This was my makeup and outfit for the day! Please excuse how crappy my makeup looks… And my hair… And my face in general ;_; At least my outfit was nice though! Would’ve looked better with my straw hat but blame that on the sh*tty weather.

I have to say that I do love these upper lashes though; they were from Born Pretty Store and really good for that “soft” appearance. You can get 10% discount with my code HORNH10 too!

My mood instantly improved as soon as I saw my friends! I soon forgot how crap I looked and just couldn’t stop talking as we had a lot to catch up on. It was only me and Emmie at first so we just wandered around Chinatown and drank Bubble Tea – I got Mango Fruit Tea – before we were joined by Emilie! I missed them so much. It had been almost over a year since I saw Emmie, and two years since I saw Emilie! How crazy is that?

We headed off to Misato (?) for some cheap yet incredibly gorgeous food. It was the place where Pixie took me last time but I couldn’t remember the name! It was so filling though as the portions were huge!

Then it was time to go to the park where we actually spent most of the day. Even though it was really cloudy it was getting pretty humid – typical city weather – and I had so much fun! It was really nice to just chill and chat.

We saw this policeman statue thing on our way there… I just had to
Slyly taking photos hur hur

Our picnic food!

At one point we got onto the topic of ghosts and I told them about when I was mindlessly scrolling through Tumblr and happened to stumble upon that horrible picture from Insidious. Now I’m not going to post that picture but me and Emilie tried to replicate it ;D

Later on we were joined by Yamii! 😀 Emilie tried to teach her how to act like a thug hahahaha.

That was basically all we did for the rest of the day, and before I knew it it was 10pm and I really needed to head home as I was exhausted (but in a good way).

I hope you have a really good rest of the weekend!
