MA*RS Twins!

I can’t believe how the summer holidays have flown by! It’s been a weeks since my holiday in Germany (which I still have to write about), my birthday is long gone, and you know what? I enjoyed every second of it. This summer holiday has definitely been the best I’ve had in ages because I’ve been able to actually arrange and attend meets as well as visit my family a hell of a lot more. 

Me and my lovely friend Tania decided to meet up to do a MA*RS day just two days after meeting for my birthday gal meet, and went as “twins”! I had so much fun, and it was lovely just being able to spend a day eating, chatting, and taking lots of purikura.

In order of the “twinning” to work we tried to figure out what MA*RS clothes we had that were similar but unfortunately we didn’t have any, so instead we planned to have the same hairstyle (curled pigtails) and wear the same headband!

We met up at this bubble tea place; I was a bit early so I had this gorgeous bubble tea (that I can’t remember the name of ;_;) and some spicy fried tofu!

Sipping on my milk tea as I wait!

When Tania arrived we headed out to get some food because I was a greedy git hahaha. She took me to this restaurant that did massive – and I mean massive – portions. Just take a look at mine!

After our lunch we went to take some purikura!

It seems like the purikura place in London is still yet to close down, but it’s obvious that it’s going to. Most of the booths had been packed away but luckily our beloved Japanese booth was still there <3

It’s so hard to choose my favourites so here are my top three! 

And the rest of them… We took two sets because they were on a special offer and chose to get the bigger ones instead of the usual 16. 

I really enjoyed taking puri with her! We messed around quite a lot and pulled silly poses and it was so much fun! I love those kind of puris <3

Me & My Bby Tania <3333

Because it was still pretty early (ish) we thought a little shopping spree was in order so headed out to Camden Town. I didn’t get anything because I’m desperately trying to save money (which is so not happening right now) and I didn’t really see anything I liked. Tania bought some really cute cat tops and sweater though that I wish I had bought in the end! Oh well.

My feet then started to hurt after a while so we went to a nearby coffee place to have a drink and we were there for aaaaages talking about the most random of things! We soon realised that it was getting really late so we went back to the station and headed home.

Look and outfit:

Top lashes: Sakurina Buty Eye  |  Lower Lashes: Luminous Change (Pixie Bunny)

Headband: Pixie Bunny  |  Set: MA*RS  |
Jewellery: MA*RS (Gorgeous Barbie)  |  Shoes: Top Shop

On the train home I was thinking about my addiction to MA*RS and realised that I really should stop buying that stuff. Ever since I started buying MA*RS I began to think that it was the only way to dress agejo when that’s totally not right! I need to figure out some “everyday agejo” coords that doesn’t rely heavily on MA*RS… For the sake of my bank and my addiction!
So if anyone sees me buying more MA*RS after this week (I had cheekily bought some MA*RS bags and purse) then gimme’ a slap on the wrist! Haha.

Anyway, that’s all for today!

Hey There, Birthday Girl!

Right so I was going to write a blog post about my holiday but that went horribly wrong – because I am an idiot and didn’t press save – so instead I’m going to write one about my birthday!

It was a pretty quiet one because I had just come back from holiday a couple of days before so really couldn’t be bothered to host a big party. Instead I spent it with my sister and boyfriend and it was so perfect!

I started the day by dolling up and getting ready because I, unlike all of the other people in the house, was actually awake because I was so excited. I hadn’t felt such excitement on my birthday since I was a little kiddie and it was such a lovely feeling. Then I realised it was perhaps the last day I could behave like a kid as now I’m a proper “adult” ;_;

This was my look for the day and my outfit! I finally had the chance to wear my MA*RS dress from Gorgeous Barbie <3 I absolutely love that shop, but I really should stop buying from them because I’m not a billionaire just yet ;D

Angel Eye & Luminous Change

Now onto my presents! I can’t believe how lucky I was this year, I’m so happy with everything >///< I think what mattered most was because the people I loved were there <3

I unfortunately missed out a necklace ;_; 

I then went to go shopping! I didn’t really buy that much as we only had an hour before the film started. These were my buys:

From good ol’ Primark
All from Miss Selfridge
New Look (sorry for the blurriness!)

Then we had to rush off to watch Monsters University! It was such a good film; they tied up all of the loose ends, and the story was just so brilliant that I really wouldn’t mind watching it over and over. Here’s the trailer if you don’t know what I’m talking about 😀

And now for the dinner! We all had a meal at a local pub/restaurant and wow they really didn’t disappoint. I’ve had dinner there before but it wasn’t brilliant, but they really surprised me this time. I had some yummy steak tehe.

As I was finished eating the waitress came over… With a birthday cake fully lit with candles. I was so incredibly surprised because we were all talking about ordering a desert and the waitress just acted like normal by bringing out desert menus. It was such a lovely gesture ;_; <3

My Boyfriend, Me & My Sister <3

And then that was it! It was a fantastic day and I’m so happy that I spent it with my sister and boyfriend <3 Thank you so so much guys for making my day really special ^3^ <3 <3

Chasing The Sun; UK Gal Meet!

I hosted meet in London last Sunday, and I must say that it was definitely a success! While there weren’t as many people there as we would normally have, everyone was so lovely and I had such a relaxing time. I think it was the first time where we weren’t rushing to go anywhere, and spent at least a couple of hours just relaxing at a park in the sun.
Sun?! Yes, Britain finally has some sun! I’ve been feeling quite depressed over the past couple of days – even went so far to think about selling my gal brand items – because of the sh*tty British weather, but today it proved me wrong. We finally reached the highs of 26 degrees celsius which we haven’t had in such a long time.

At the meet there was me, Marie, Yamii, and Finlay and three other new people that I haven’t met before Wib, Kei Kei and Jade. We first headed out to get some food at this Japanese restaurant called Mr Taro as the purikura machines were closed for lunch. Even though I’ve been to London a fair amount I’m still a bit of a n00b when it comes to food so it was nice to go somewhere new. Marie’s recommendation was perfect; the food was yummy and at a very good price!

I had Chicken Ramen and they used this delicious marinade on it *_*

Then we did the usual purikura because it is thankfully still open. Whether or not it’s closing is still up in the air so hopefully it’ll stay for a little longer… I don’t know what I’ll do without it ;_;

This is my favourite one hahaha!

We took full advantage of the good lighting and snapped some more photos!

It was the first time I wore this dress because of the crappy season, and I’m in love with it *_* can’t get enough of MA*RS! I originally wore this with over-the-knee socks but it got way too hot.

After purikura we were all dying for a drink and went on to get some Bubble Tea from Cuppa Cha! My name was “Tinkerbell” this time, although I forgot to take a photo of it ;_;
While we were waiting we pulled faces at Kei Kei who was waiting outside, and she took this amazing photo of us <3

So we were just sitting outside in Chinatown when this Chinese guy went up to Marie and asked if he could stroke her feet o_o He obviously had a serious foot fetish because he had to stroke it twice and stroked mine as well… That’s when we decided it would be nice to leave Chinatown haha!

The rest was bit of an improvisation because we didn’t really have anything planned which was great because it turned out to be a very relaxing day! We did head out to Japan Centre though as I wanted to get my hands on a Ageha magazine but it turned out to be ridiculously expensive so I didn’t bother. It was so hot that we decided to have a sit down at a nearby park next to Buckingham Palace, and spent the rest of our day there 😀

So here’s my makeup and outfit shots:

My original outfit!
Dress: MA*RS | Jewellery: Muse | Socks: Primark | Shoes: Dorothy Perkins

I had such an awesome time. I think this was the first meet where we really relaxed and just chilled out beneath the summer sun (oh how poetic). I think I would definitely do a meet like this again! Especially because there are so many lovely people in the UK gal comm <3 I love you all! <3

That’s all for today! A bit of a photo spam but what the heck, you love it really ;D

Agejo, Lazy Days & New Look!

Waddya’ think of my new layout? It’s so pretty and sparkly isn’t it?
I thought that I needed a new look to my blog because my old one was, well, old. I love leopard print but I was just getting sick of looking at it and I wanted a fresh new start to mark my change in style. I aimed for the more glamorous and girly appearance because of my love for agejo and one gyaru and I think it turned out pretty well! Did all of my graphics in Illustrator and Photoshop 😀

Speaking of agejo… I was going to have a very lazy day but whilst doing my lash review for Pixie Bunny it changed my mind and I dolled up! I really didn’t expect it; I was hoping to lounge around in my hoodie and leggings all day but it was still nice to put on a bit of makeup.

Here’s my look for the day! You may have already seen some pictures on my last post, but oh well you get to see it again (you lucky thing you).

I actually really like these lashes although find that they do go slightly upwards… Shall have to find a way to fix that! And I would probably need to continuously brush up on lash glue as well but that’s what you get for being a gal I suppose <3

Like I said, I really did want a lazy day so I jumped back into my hoodie and leggings as soon as the review was done. It was so nice and comfy *_* I love this hoodie! It’s incredibly warm but I managed, surprisingly. Just shows how crap British summers are -_-

Earrings: Primark | Necklace: MA*RS | Top: MA*RS | Skirt: Primark | Tights: Primark
Top: MA*RS | Hoodie: eBay | Leggings: Primark

Now before I go, I want to show you some of my buys! I’ve been trying to save up for the past year and the other day I went shopping and saved a lot of money.

For example: see that top in the photo? It was originally £19.99 from New Look, but because it was in the sales it went down to £9! I saved £10.99! Pretty good huh? 

And that bag… Well, New Look sold one like it for £19.99 (they really like that price don’t they?) but I hopped over to Primark and found a similar looking one for… Take a guess… Yep, £8.99 (or something like that). Bonus!

Top: New Look | Bag & Hair Bow: Primark

So I think I’ve done really good! I haven’t bought any MA*RS items apart from this gorgeous replica, and because it was a replica it was really cheap (for MA*RS anyway). I hope to continue my gyaru-on-a-budget lifestyle because now I can spend the rest of the money I have on things I really really need.

That’s all for today! Just a little update on what’s going on really. See you next time <3

 

Review: Luminous Change Lower Lashes

Remember a few posts back when I went to MCM Expo in London? Well I purchased a set of lashes from the lovely Tania of Pixie Bunny that I had been eying up for a while and promised that I’d do a review for her so… Here it is!

Before I go onto the review I would like to give you a little introduction of Pixie Bunny. As I have already said, it’s owned by the lovely Tania (who has a blog here) and she sells a variety of products such as tights, bags, makeup, jewellery and – wait for it – false lashes!

Me & Tania at MCM Expo!

Anyway, the lashes I purchased were Luminous Change Lower Lashes. I’ve been searching for some lashes that were a cross between Princess Eye and Baby Eye (both by Diamond Lash) so when I clapped my eyes onto these babies I knew I had to get them.

Now I can’t really judge on how well her postage was (i.e. how everything was kept in a box etc etc) as I had bought them from her stall, but she did pop it into a really cute pink bag alongside a sticker! So I guess I can give her a booming 5 stars because she didn’t just stick it any old paper bag.

So, packaging 

Okay so now it’s actually talking about how they felt when I wore them. When I peeled them off from the container I realised that they were actually longer than they first appeared, which is definitely a good thing because I was worried that these lashes would just disappear on camera. So I put them on and-

Well, all I can say is, do not underestimate their length.

They were perfect length and design-wise! I fell in love and was literally babbling away to Tania on Facebook on how much I loved them. Another reason to show just how good they were was that today was supposed to be an extremely lazy day in a hoody, but… I dolled up! And it was all down to the lashes!

Later on I did realise that they kinda’ went upwards, if that makes sense? I think this is a both good and bad thing; good because it means they don’t look too dramatic, but bad because they might not look dramatic enough for heavy makeup. Won’t know until you try though I guess!

Appearance 

Usability wise… They are pretty easy to use! The only thing I could say is that the lash line is quite thin but it doesn’t look as fragile as Princess Eye by Diamond Lash… However, I’d still be extra careful with them when taking them off just in case.
Because of the thin, transparent lash line I found them really easy to adjust so that they curved nicely beneath my lower (natural) lash line.

Usability 

Overall 

I will give them an overall mark of 5 stars because they are one of the most beautiful lower lashes I’ve ever seen, coming up close behind (ooer) Baby Eye by Diamond Lash, and you know how much I love those lashes…

I guess that’s all for now! Now why not be a good ol’ chap and hop over to Pixie Bunny to purchase these gorgeous babies for yourself ;D

Will most likely make a post of my make and outfit etc next week ^^ Ta ta for now~
