Is it really weird that I’m already thinking of autumn? I’m already starting to put together a wishlist of all of the things I want to buy in preparation for it… I guess I just gave up with the idea of summer over here. Anyway, today’s post is just a collection of my most recent gyaru coords! Hope you like them.
When you think of gyaru makeup you, naturally, would think about wearing circle lenses but what about the people who can’t wear such things? Yep, I am one of those people, and although I used to wear them I can happily say that I haven’t been wearing them for 90% of my gyaru life. Because of this, I’ve been having quite a lot of people asking me on my instagram on how I do my eye makeup without circle lens and the other day I finally bit the bullet and took some photos. I’m hoping to do a video in future but I’m a bit of a n00b when it comes to video stuff. If anyone has some advice that would be amazing.
So here goes… My gyaru makeup tutorial without circle lenses! I hope you’ll like it.
Does anyone else here suffer from hayfever? I’m asking because I’m praying that I’m not the only one currently with tissue stuck up in their nostrils to stop it from overflowing (disgusting, I know). It’s gotten so bad this year, and it’s the main culprit of my messed up eye. But you’ll be happy to hear that my eye has finally healed! Yay!
I’ve taken a few pictures of my gyaru coords and makeup over the past few weeks but I didn’t take enough to make a blog post about each one, so I’m putting them all together in this post!
I’m so happy that everyone liked my haul post – I’m going to try and do more in future but next time I’ll save the links to everything I buy! eBay has saved my life, and I’ll definitely shop from there from now on (with the occasional cheeky shop elsewhere).
For now, I just want to work with what I’ve got! I have so many clothes, so why is it so hard to put an outfit together? To help me out a bit I’ve decided to do a “one item in five ways” post like they did in the old gyaru magazines. It’ll help me become more creative with my clothes and save me from buying something that I already have. In this post I’m going to create five different outfits for my Liz Lisa skirt! I’m in love with it, and I’m so glad that I’ve managed to get the complete set from Kawaii Gyaru Shop.
Yesterday I organised a mini-meet in Birmingham to see if there were any gals in the area. London can be quite far for some people (as well as expensive) and Birmingham is the next biggest city that I know of. It went quite well! I met some new people which was cool and the best thing was that Chewiee came to visit me at the same time!
We both wore agejo for the meet! Gosh I love wearing this style so much. It’s so fun getting ready with a friend! I wore my MA*RS skirt and paired it with a pink top that I got from boohoo and a MA*RS hoodie for a more “casual” agejo look.
Hey everyone! How have you been this week? Done anything exciting? ♡
Last weekend we had our first JEWEL gyaru meet! ꒰ෆ❛ั ु▿❛ั ु꒱ JEWEL【ジュエル】is a UK gyaru unit, and so it was very exciting for us! It was formed by me and my friends Chewiee, Emmie, Marie, Emilie & Kei as we want to revive the gal community in the UK and spread the word! It’s still in its initial stages, but we have big plans for it. Fingers crossed that it goes smoothly!
I wasn’t feeling very well this day, but seeing everyone made me really happy (♡ॢ˃̶̤̀◡˂̶̤́♡ॢ) I went for a more casual agejo look this time~ I really wanted to do hime but I’ve realised that I don’t have anything good for winter! ;_; maybe it’s a good excuse to buy some more…? Tehehehe.

This meet was slightly different to what we usually did. We wanted it to be ‘cosy’ so we hung around Chewiee’s house and read magazines! I brought my BETTY hair bibles (which I love); I really hope I can do some of those hairstyles soon! It was lovely getting to know people that I haven’t met before, and people who I haven’t spoke to in ages!

Awh, look at everyone looking pretty and- wait, what the hell are those two doing in the corner?!
We really just chilled out! It was very relaxing~ plus it was way too cold outside to hang around the city. But afterwards we did go and do some karaoke! It was so dark in the room though so I couldn’t take photos ꒰੭ ❛⃘⌢❜⃘⃘ಃ ꒱໊ luckily Chewiee had one!
I’m such a terrible singer, so I had to apologise so many times for my awful singing ;_; But I didn’t feel so embarrassed because I was with all of my friends and having fun!
Before I knew it I had to go home… I really can’t wait until the next meet (or me2 in gyaru slang!). Let’s hope there’s another one before Christmas ∗˚೫˳(●ᴖ͙̏ᴗॢᴖ͙̋●)˳೫˚∗
Guess that’s all for now cuties. Until next Sunday ♡

Hey guys! How are you? ♡
I’ve got some really, really good news… My eye has healed! I’ve never been so happy about something like that in my whole life. I’m still going to be very careful with it and keep it moisturised, but now I can finally put makeup on it! Here are a few agejo coords from last weekend~
♡ Queen of Hearts ♡
This is my look for when I went out for a birthday party! I wore my new MA*RS set! I think it’s a replica because although I think it’s MA*RS the label says Princess Melody ^^” But that’s okay, it was still super cute!
Sorry for the low quality pictures… Was in such a rush ;_; And lighting is so bad in my room.

I put more of a focus on hair accessories this time because I always seem to lack in that department. I just bought these roses the day before and oh my gosh I am in love with the purple colour! I was in a hurry that I couldn’t take a decent photo of it, and my waves died after a work so it wasn’t quite as wavy as I wanted it to be.
|Better picture of the hairstyle~ Eurgh can’t believe how fast my waves died! So annoying!|
|Made some nails to go with my new outfit! (I actually took this photo the next day tehehe~)|
We ended up being late to the party but luckily the birthday girl was okay with that as more people started turning up around the same time we did!
Phew! I had so much fun. They played a lot of ’80s music which I loved and I danced lots and lots! It’s a shame that I didn’t take any photos… But it was pretty dark so you probably wouldn’t see anything anyway ^^”
Me and my boyfriend after the party ♡ We’re both idiots but it’s okay, we’re cool with it.
♡ Casual Brunch Date ♡
The next day me & my boyfriend decided to go out to Wagamama for some brunch! It’s the first time we’ve been there where we didn’t order a main… It felt kind of weird.
Please ignore my no-makeup face… I was still kinda’ sleepy tehehe.

♡ Thai Curry Date ♡
In the evening we tried out a local thai restaurant and oh my gosh it was one of the best decisions we ever had! The food and atmosphere was amazing… I just had to take some photos for you all.
|Isn’t it so amazing? I loved the whole atmosphere!|
And my outfit & makeup! I went for a more onee gyaru look this time~ You might recognise this from my previous post ;D
Guess that’s all for now darlings! I’ll see you all next week ♡ Ciao!

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 ♡

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.
