Day Out with Charli!

Argh this is so so late OTL
At the end of May I went to London to visit the lovely Charli! I have met her once before at the Pink Marble meet, but haven’t actually been able to talk to her properly then ;_; So when I made a post about wanting to meet people, I was so happy when she said she wanted to meet me! ^3^

I had curled my hair the day before, but seeing as the weather was so crap/rainy/windy I decided to just put it as a side pony, going for the très chic onee look. It’s been ages since I went for that kinda’ style as I’m usually doing the more darker stuff, so it was a nice change!

When I got to London I was rushing towards Chinatown when I saw her! It was so scary… ’cause for a few moments we were walking next to each other before realising that it was me/her! So funny~ We first headed to a clothes shop (which sold really cute liz lisa-inspired items, but… Didn’t really suit me :P) that was pretty darn expensive – damn London – and then to take some purikura! :3 Here are my faves <3

After our purikura session we went to this lovely Japanese restaurant (Charli please lemme’ know the name! I love that place ;_;) that I haven’t been to before. When I saw the seating arrangements I was  thrown into the culture of Japan and I loved it! But then I said, “Erm… How are we supposed to sit?” And then she told me that there’s a hole where we can put our feet in so it forms like a sort of chair o_O So crazy and hard to describe D:

I ordered some prawn ramen, and underestimated how large the portions were. At first I thought they were bringing out mine and Charli’s food, but it was only mine o_O Really worth the money!

We went shopping afterwards (I need to take a picture of my buys… Maybe in the next post or something >_>) on Oxford Street when it started to rain again ;_; I swear the weather is nearly always horrible when I wanna’ meet friends! OTL

It was half six by the time we finished, and seeing as our train was around 7 we decided to kill some time. We were starting to get hungry anyways so Charli showed me this Haagen Daas (sp?) restaurant! Was so yummy *_*

I kept pulling this face at her for the whole day…

hello little children *perv* ;D

After that I headed home~ I had such a lovely time with her! ^3^ I can’t wait to meet her again… She’s such a sweetie ^^

Guess that’s all for now! I shall be posting an Outfit Post in my next one with some close-ups I wore in meeting Charli ^^

Uni Meal

Hello again!
Sorry I haven’t updated in a while… Haven’t really been feeling inspired to write a blog post OTL.
But anyways, seeing as I’m so behind in things I thought I’d make a quick post of my meal with uni people~ It was during the really hot summer days (although now it’s raining, again ;_;) and I decided to wear my new MA*RS dress for the occasion! I’ve been slowly building up my brand wardrobe tehe~

Unfortunately the day before I had obtained a collection of blisters all over my feet from my new shoes, so I wasn’t able to wear heels and had to wear OTK socks so that people won’t realise that I had plasters all over ;_; So I wasn’t feeling quite as great about the meal as I should’ve done ><

The Warmth of the Sun

After having my nap when I returned from Brighton my landlord was hosting a barbecue and invited me, so I just quickly slapped on my lens and some makeup as his friends were already there and I didn’t want to be rude in not saying hi.
I wanted to do like rows that I see on some oraora gals and really liked this tutorial on Rii’s blog (which you can see here) so decided to just watch the part where she did the rows as my hair was already wavy. I might actually attempt to do it properly next time because I really liked how she did some flicks as well.

So onto the photos!

Argh ignore the glue it went everywhere D:

Top from West One, shorts from Reveal, necklace & bracelet from eBay, 

earrings from Primark, shoes from New Look!

Birthday in Brighton

It was my Gyaru debut on Saturday, which was also the day that I met up with Amelie, Bunny, Jada and Ruby for Amelie’s birthday! I decided to do this gyaru debut thing because recently I’ve been lazy and not bothering to do gal properly, so from now on I’m going to find a way to doll up more! It’s going to be hard – especially with uni and work – but I’m going to try it out.

I woke up way too early (like, quarter to 6 or something crazy) because of the heat so I had plenty of time to just browse on tumblr or what not. But that also gave me plenty of time to doll up as I did this hairstyle from Sui’s tutorial so I only had to pull the plaits out. I really like this hairstyle!

Day O2 & My New Lenses! :3 // 4月30日 //

I’ve decided that because I’m going to be posting the meme so frequently, that I’ll put two posts in one! This is because I have so many things to blog about and I don’t have time to blog daily D:

Stef was visiting me this weekend, and because the weather was so crap we didn’t really go out :/ However that didn’t stop me from dolling up! Another reason for dolling up was because I received some lenses from my sponsor that I really was excited in trying out >//<

So, ladies and gentlemen, my new lens! :3
You may have already seen them in my last post, but I only included one picture of myself wearing them~

My eye make!

D.I.A top, Reveal shorts, Primark thigh high socks,

Dorothy Perkins’ heels. 

Today’s meme is to include a picture (or pictures, in my case lololol) of myself and to include 15 facts! Sounds really easy doesn’t it? That’s what I thought at first D: but it’s actually pretty hard to think of 15 things that aren’t the same >_>

Anyways, here goes :3

1. I’m incredibly lazy and hate exercising, which is why I don’t do any. The most exercise I do is walk to uni or to town OTL
2. I have a pretty darn amazing boyfriend <3
3. I’m studying Graphic Design and I love my course! But I wished that I designed more in my free time than lazed in front of the computer doing nothing ^^”
4. I wish I was a genius at something, ’cause then I wouldn’t have to work so hard to get only good grades, not brilliant ones :/
5. I love art and design
6. I’m half Chinese
7. I’m pretty crazy when I’m with my friends, and can talk to people quite easily.
8. I’ve had bad experiences with memory sticks, but I still rely on them for all of my files OTL
9. I have astigmatism which is a b*tch.
10. I’ve never had a hangover, ever.
11. Not gonna’ lie, I’m a bit of a poser.
12. I get distracted really easily
13. I love dolling up and feeling pretty, especially when it’s for a special occasion.
14. I’m really crap when it comes to games; I’d get crazy over it, but after a day or two I’d get bored and never play again lololol.
15. I spend most of my day in front of the computer. I’m so addicted to the internet <3

Me and my bby <3

That’s all for now! I actually really like these meme posts tehe~ Gives me more things to blog about!

Sponsored Review: Toric Magic Gray Black

Please note that although this is a sponsored review, the thoughts and opinions stated are 100% my own. 


I received my pair of circle lenses sponsored by e-circlelens ! I was really happy that they did astigmatism lenses, as I couldn’t wear normal ones ;_; The ones I’m reviewing here are the Toric Magic Gray Black and here are the details displayed on their site:

This Lens’s CYL is up to -3.00.

Communication 
They always replied to my emails quickly and were able to keep me up-to-date on what was going on, so I’m going to give them 5 stars!

Postage and Packaging 
Unlike most circle lens distributors, the lenses arrived in around 2 weeks! Wow o_O I was expecting it to arrive in like at least 2 months, so was very surprised when I got an email from them saying that they had sent the lenses. 
The lenses came in a little box, and inside that there were leaflets on how to take care of your lenses, how to put them in, and also some leaflets of their company. The box was filled with these polystyrene tubes to protect the lens, even though the lenses were encased in a polystyrene case and put into a purple bag! They really did think of everything, and I was really pleased with this.
As well as the lenses they provided a little travel lens case! Awesome! 

However I was a bit confused because on top of the circle lens bottles they wrote down the power rather than having it typed up… I think this might be to save time and money printing out labels with power, but I’m not too sure. Anyhow nothing was damaged and the lid was really tight (so tight that I had to use scissors to get them off lolololol).

Appearance 
This has to be one of the prettiest lens I’ve ever seen, as they blend so well with my natural colour! Above are pictures of one in, and then both in with no makeup, and then both in with makeup. Even though they’re only 14mm in diameter they make my eyes look huge because of the thick black border. Amazing! I look really doe-eyed when I wear them. 

Comfort 
I managed to wear these for a whole day without having any problems with dryness! They were a bit dry at first because I haven’t worn circle lens in ages but after five minutes they were fine. 

Overall 
Overall I was extremely happy with these, and shall definitely buy more of this series! Not only are they Toric lens but they also make my eyes look huge even with a small diameter. They are extremely comfy and nothing was damaged at all. E-circlelens were amazing and provided me with much more than I imagined (like the travelcase) and I was very happy with their communication and postage.

To purchase these lenses click here! Or view their website to see what they have in store for you! They have loads of styles to choose from, and their service is brilliant. I would highly recommend them!

Me with ma’ new lenses ;D

30 Day Gyaru Challenge!

I loooove a challenge, and the other day me and my friend Bunny decided to create a “30 Day Gyaru Meme/Challenge” for other gyaru to participate in! We did this by mixing together a few existing memes and then changing them for gyaru. They’re relatively easy prompts that anyone can use regardless of whether you’re a beginner or a fully-fledged gal. You’re more than welcome to use it, but please credit us!

Rainy days and a questionnaire for you all! // 4月25日 //

Eurgh it has felt like an age since I last posted… I am so not used to posting just once every week or so now which is a good thing I guess as I really want to post more frequently on here.
But my interesting life pretty much ended as soon as uni started; I am dedicating most of my time to my uni work, so I hardly have any time to doll up anymore. It sucks because I really do fancy curling my hair and what-not every now and then, but I just don’t have the time.
I’m working a lot more as well so there’s another reason why I can’t doll up. Wearing tons of makeup isn’t really the way to go when you’re working at the cashier lololol.

I did manage to find the time to do my makeup yesterday though, as I went on a trip to London for uni to see an exhibition hosted by GFSmith (a papermaking company). They create the most beautiful kinds of paper… And I brought home some samples ;D I’ll include pictures of the exhibition on my art blog here .

So anyways, this was my look! I didn’t have the time to take pictures so these were taken on the train where the wind just decided to mess my hair up a bit >_>

We popped to Nandos for lunch just before the exhibition~ 

Me and Jess! Sorry for the blurry photo D: Bad lighting ><

I had this chicken wrap thing and it was amazing *_* So so tasty! I hope to make something like this~

Could you please do this lil’ questionnaire for me? My friend is doing research about online identities for her university project so she really really needs your help. Please help her <3

1. Why are you interested in Gyaru?
2. Give 5 things that inspire you and your style and why. (Please give links)

5. How do you define yourself online?

The other stuff

Shopping with Emmie // 4月12日 //

Hello readers! :3

Before I write anything else, I’m going to make slight changes to the way I blog! First off, my pictures would be in a better quality, and I’ll also add things like rounded borders and headers for each blog! Hopefully this would make it look more interesting :3

On Tuesday I and the fabulous Emmie went shopping in Bromely! It was my first time there, and I quite liked the shops they had~ It was so much better than Kent…. And it had a Primark lolololol. I swear I like, do too much bargain shopping… But oh well! At least it saves me money :3

I decided that together with my new jacket that I’d try out oraora! ^^ Unfortunately I had to go to work beforehand so my plans of doing up my hair were ruined D: Sucked big time because I was really looking forward to trying out a new hairstyle… Oh well! Next time maybe ;D

And the reason that I tried out oraora is because I’ve been looking at Soul Sister lately, especially because of this amazingly awesome tumblr called Sukebans has put up their scans! It is my main source for oraora, tsuyome, kurogyaru etc. and I love it! The people running it are really acknowledgeable and I love reading their posts on the oraora lifestyle :3 These kind of coords and makeup tuts really caught my eye and inspired me with my look ^^

And this is my inspired look :3 My make and my outfit shots ^^

Tried a flick this time instead of the good ol’ droopy eye! Quite liked it~

Jewerich no.2 & Baby Eye lowers

I got some amazing advice from Alice who showed me a tutorial by Kanako 

for contouring! For ages I’ve been annoyed ’cause of my nose contouring,

 and now I’ve finally found a technique I’m satisfied with :3

Jacket from Hypnotic, vest from New Look, jeans from 

New Look, Boots from Reveal, accessories from Primark.

But yeah. So I met Emmie 2 hours after my shift and went along to Bromley! It was actually quite sunny but freezing ;_; And – I kid you not – at one point it did rain D: Hate this British weather! D: Luckily most of the shops were indoors so we didn’t have to worry about our make and what not~ I also had a KFC for the first time in yonks which was naaaice 😀 I love that place OTL

I bought only a few items because I’m now on a money diet~ Sounds silly, but… I really need to stop spending and save up for Japan D: So stuff like a necklace, vest, socks, blusher… Nothing of great interest, although I did buy a crop top too! ^^

After we went around shopping I wanted to take some quick shots as I haven’t had a photo with Emmie before like, on our own :3 

It had to be done.

SHE’S SO PURDY 

I guess that’s all for now!
