My Birthday “Weekend”

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!

Leaving Agejo Gyaru? New Adventures!

Hey guys! How’s it going?

You may have been wondering why I haven’t worn agejo lately… In truth, it’s because I’ve gone completely off it. It’s really sad because I’ve spent so much money on gorgeous MA*RS items and now I can’t even think about wearing them anymore ;_; They’re just hanging uselessly in my wardrobe. I just wore agejo so much that I felt tired of wearing it, and it’s hard to create different outfits of the same item. I know that I do have a lot – and I mean a lot – of MA*RS to wear but everything just looked so similar so it didn’t really feel like it.

I’m not too sure what to do about it so for now I’m just going to leave it. I don’t think I can bear selling anything, but who knows?

Right now my heart has been captured by hime kaji and equally cute styles. I’m starting to love hime gyaru again, but I don’t think I can go as far as wearing lots of La Pafait or Jesus Diamante. I’ve gathered lots of inspirational pictures on my tumblr but it’s hard to do it without having any hime kaji/gyaru items! However, I’ve told myself not to spend too much on it otherwise it’ll just be like agejo and MA*RS all over again, and I don’t think my bank I can handle it.

But it’s been hard not to scroll through sites and drool over any hime-inspired items, so I thought that the best way to help me out is to create a wishlist! 😀

Sweet Bow Summer Dress / Sweet Chiffon V-Neck High-Waisted Dress / Princess Style Heels / Light Pink Bling Bow Necklace / Hime Dream Bows on Hair Clip / Sweet Denim Lace Playsuit / Lacy Kitty – Pink / Strap Skirt / Sweet Doll-Collar Blouse /

I actually tried out hime kaji a couple of times before reaching this decision~ Here are my latest hime
kaji looks! What do you think?

However, I find that hime kaji can look a bit boring sometimes so I’m going to use the same method as I did for agejo and make it dramatic! Big hair and bold eye makeup! I might even mix it with some elements of agejo like stockings and lots of bling… I could perhaps mix in hime gyaru too >_> I collected some images for inspiration.

… So maybe there are quite a lot of hime gyaru influences

I don’t know where exactly this will take me but I’m excited; I’ve gone back to my roots and my old interests, and it’s turning out to be a new adventure <3

Hope you guys have a lovely rest of the weekend~

My Successful Shopping Spree

 

With spring finally approaching I’ve been itching to buy some new clothes. I know, I know, I’m very naughty for even thinking about it but I’ve been drooling over the whole cream and white combination. I want to escape from the black and pink that I’ve been wearing so much over winter!

So I wore it for what might well be the last time on a shopping trip to London with my girl Pixie! It’s been ages since I last saw her and as I might not see her that much anymore I was dying to have at least one final shopping spree and catch up with her. We spent the whole day eating, chatting and shopping and it was amazing.

This was my original look & outfit for the day but I changed right at the last minute because I wasn’t really feeling very agejo-fabulous so instead I opted for a more casual version. I was dying to try on this bow that my friend Amy made me, and it went really well with my lovely MA*RS replica skirt (because replicas aren’t always that bad) with this white fluffy sweater that I, surprisingly, got from Primark! Oh the things you can find there… Even though it’s dirt cheap you’d think it’ll be a really crap quality but I was pleasantly surprised.

Sweater: Primark / Belt: GOLDS Infinity / Skirt: MA*RS Replica

Tights: Primark / Shoes: Dorothy Perkins / Acc: Muse

When we got there we noticed that there was a new Chinese dim sum so we just had to try it out! The food was delicious, and one of the waiters there was trying to flirt with us (how cute) but we were too concentrated on the gorgeous food. The dessert was even better! I’m drooling as I think about it.

Spot the Pixie tehe~
Gorgeous Dim Sum!
Chocolate Fondue

Then it was time to go shopping and oh my gosh it was the most successful shopping trip ever. I actually bought stuff. I never buy stuff on shopping trips! I got my cream colour palette that I had been dreaming of as well as a pretty cool cap that I think would go well with my oraora outfits.

After our few hours of shopping we then went to this Mexican restaurant where we ate more delicious food! I’m still not that great with Mexican it seems as I couldn’t finish my dish! It was yummy though, and I wouldn’t mind going there again.

As I was really enjoying myself I soon forgot that Game of Thrones was gonna’ show on TV! I’m a hardcore GoT fan so this is a new record for me. I didn’t mind though because I tried to make the most of my time with Pixie (eurgh that sounds so pathetic, doesn’t it?)

Anyway, that’s all I have to say about my shopping spree! I guess that it isn’t really a spree as that probably includes around 10 or more items but it’s a spree for me!

Me & Pixie!

Hope you have a lovely weekend! And enjoy the sun, woohoo!

Rosey Rabbit

Rosey Rabbit

I’m back vlogging again! This time is another video for Pixie Bunny where I talk about one of our Rosey Rabbit Headbands in pink x black. These have been one of the most successful-selling items (in my opinion) that we have in store and I couldn’t wait to get my hands on them!

In the video I talk about what you could wear these bunny ears for all occasions, going-out or for just ‘casual’ days. They are absolutely perfect for those into agejo-gyaru because of the colour, as one of the signature colours of agejo is black and pink! I could easily find things to wear with these. If I have any more photos than those included in the video I shall update it on either my Facebook page or Pixie Bunny‘s page.  I really hope you enjoy watching it!

Here are some behind-the-scenes photos I took just before shooting! I felt so flirty and sexy wearing these ears… It’s amazing how something could make you feel like that.

 

 

Top & Skirt: MA*RS / Shrug: eBay / OTK socks: Primark / Heels: Dorothy Perkins / Jewellery: Muse

 

And that’s all for now! I hope you’re having a lovely weekend. Please remember to take a break for those who are stressing about uni/work/school/etc xx

My Valentine

My Valentine

 

 

Hey! How are you? Did you have a good week?

I mentioned in my last post that I took a much-deserved break from uni which was a nice change since I’ve been spending so much time studying around Christmas. As I reward I treated myself to quite a fair amount this month to last me until summer so yeah, I’m feeling very positive at the moment (and stupid for spending money when I shouldn’t). I posted a picture of my haul on my facebook page.

I admit that I felt pretty lonely on Valentines Day because I wasn’t able to spend it with my boyfriend but we arranged to spend a whole day together when I was visiting my home town. This was what I wore: a MA*RS hoodie paired with New Look jeans, and some heels from Dorothy Perkins. I wear these heels all of the time when I go out because they are at the perfect height for me (as I’ve got awkward feet). I wore my GOLDS Infinity top underneath but zipped my hoodie up so that I had a day and a night outfit! The hoodie was super cozy in this chilly winter that Britain seems to be trapped in so I can definitely see myself hibernating in it until summer.

I was going to leave my blog at that but then I realised… Wait, this isn’t like me… I normally talk quite a lot! So on with the rambling!

Our “Valentines” date was absolutely lovely, I had such a good time. I must admit that I did feel like Barbie when I trotted into Chiquitos – a near Mexican Restaurant that opened up in town – because everyone else was wearing jeans and t-shirts and then there’s me with my extremely pink, fluffy hoodie with cat ears and heels. Whoops. Oh well, my motto is that it’s better to be too glamorous than a slob (hahaha).

I don’t know what that black dot on my eye is but check out my new hat! Hahaha
Me & the boyf as we wait for our food!

I wish I did like Mexican food, I really do, but I felt that there was an overpowering amount of cheese in my dishes. At least I tried it though! Besides, it might’ve been my dishes rather than Mexican food as a whole… I’ll show you what I ordered anyway.

Deep-friend potato skins filled with cheese, salsa and sweetcorn
Tacos!
Chicken wrap filled with Mexican rice, lettuce, cheese and this sauce I can’t remember

Right I can tell that you’re almost drooling onto your lap so I’ll take it as my cue to leave. Until next time! I hope you all have a lovely rest of the weekend xx

Agejo Trends: MA*RS Spring Collection

Agejo Trends: MA*RS Spring Collection

It’s been a year since I decided to pursue the agejo-gal style, can you believe that? I can’t. I actually had to flick back through my Tumblr just to double check that I wasn’t going mad… Sunday 4th Feb I wrote that post. Just over a year ago. Wow. I’m not quite sure how to celebrate it and I’m sure I will do another post on it soon, but for today I’m going to talk about the new MA*RS catalog! I don’t really talk about catalogues and new stock that much – if at all – on my blog, so it’s nice to have a change. Would you like me to talk more about these things in future? Comment below please!

GAL Sleepover!

GAL Sleepover!

 

Well hello there you sexy thang (Think I kind of scared Chewiee)  

After the meet in January me and Chewiee decided to meet up as we realised that we haven’t actually hung out together before! It’s crazy because we’ve known each other for a while and have been talking a lot more recently.

It was a shame that the weather was so sh*tty because I would’ve loved to have worn my MA*RS socks! I really want to buy the ones where there’s only pink lace at the top but I can’t find any anywhere. Sigh. Oh yeah I guess I am breaking my buying-no-mars-anymore rule because I kind of ordered quite a lot of MA*RS a couple of weeks ago… I’m just fed up of forcing myself not to buy the stuff that I want! I’m going to be careful and only spend what I can afford, but I’m going to have fun at the same time.

Aaaaaand as you can guess, I dressed up in MA*RS! Can’t seem to get enough of the brand. Could it be that I’m… A MA*RS gal? *_*

Warning: Lots of awesome photos!

We met up in London and hung around Chinatown eating lots of gorgeous food, taking purikura, and hanging out in Las Vegas where we played lots of pool! I’ve never really played pool before so Chewiee had to teach me, but soon I was getting the hang of it. Doesn’t mean I won or anything though… I was pretty bad. We had some drinks afterwards but for some strange reason that only made me really tired… o_o

Chewiee is certainly enjoying her food

After that we headed to Chewiee’s house and watched Girl’s Life while she curled my hair. On one side of my hair she used straighteners – I think I’ve got the hang of it now – and the other side she used curlers. Now the experiment began… I had my fingers crossed! Getting so tired of my curls dying almost instantly.

And the waiting game begins…

Surprisingly my curls actually lasted until the next morning but it was definitely the straighteners that worked the best! As I didn’t really have much time to get ready I just put my hair to one side and curled the rest of my hair.

Then it was off to get some delicious food at Pizza Express and Chewiee’s boyfriend joined us as well. We had a really good time playing pool and taking purikura! I’ve taken so much purikura this weekend, it’s unbelievable. Because of this I decided to get both an Oyster card and purikura membership card (even though the Oyster is pretty much useless as I don’t live in London, but it was cute).

With Antony’s cat! So cute!

Yummy dough balls
Lasagne!
Mini chocolate fudge cake & hot chocolate

This yummy Chinese-dish thing? Can’t remember what it’s called
Posing at the pool table
Tried out Calpis for the first time! It’s so yummy!

This is basically what we did the whole weekend and it was so much fun! I really enjoyed myself. I would love to live in London because it’s such an amazing place and you can literally do anything there. I miss having a Chinese supermarket nearby. Sigh.

Day 2

That’s all for now! Talk soon guys! 

 

Living the Gal Life: London Gal Meet

Living the Gal Life: London Gal Meet

“The higher the hair, the closer you are to God.”

Hey! How’s your week been so far? The past few weeks of stress and lack of sleep was totally worth it; I managed to finish my projects a couple of weeks early, and I celebrated it by going to a gal meet! It was my friend Jada’s birthday some time ago so we wanted to do a gal meet as well as a birthday meet and it was so much fun. We had some bubble tea, took purikura (something that’s now obligatory for a gal meet in my opinion), and then went off to do some karaoke! It was actually really relaxing because before I knew it I had to head home. I wish I could’ve stayed for longer… Stupid trains and their engineering work.

Most Wonderful Time of the Year

Most Wonderful Time of the Year

Hey all! 

How was your Christmas holidays? Did you eat lots of food? I did! I swear I’ve never eaten so much food in my life, and that’s pretty hard to beat as I tend to eat a lot everyday… But wow I’m still stuffed from my delicious Christmas dinner that my mum cooked up (we have roast duck and pancakes for Christmas instead of turkey).

My Christmas holiday was quite a long one but it was just so good! I wanted to write a post including everything I did around Christmas, so please excuse the abundance of photos and writing~ But there’s no point splitting this up into lots of mini posts because it’ll be 2014 before we know it.

The first Christmas event was the day I went to see Charli! I missed her terribly, as I hadn’t seen her that much at the October MCM Expo so it was lovely to spend a couple of hours trotting around London with her.
We decided to take some purikura as it had been a really long time! I think that it is a tad expensive, but as we were splitting it in half it wasn’t so bad. Although their scanner broke so I’ve only got photos of the purikura half I had </3

The whole set~

Then we headed to our favourite restaurant, Suki! The food is so good for the price we pay, so I was really happy to be finally sitting down munching on gorgeous ramen. If anyone’s heading to London one day, you should definitely try this place out! It’s a Japanese restaurant and it’s amazing!

After that it got dark surprisingly quickly so instead of heading to Stratford Westfield we just had a look around Chinatown and the surrounding area, mainly because it was absolutely freezing and we didn’t feel like going shopping. London was incredibly busy, so we were pretty exhausted even just walking around for a bit as we had to continuously dodge around people who were obviously rushing for their last-minute Christmas presents.

At one of the shops there Charli got me a gorgeous alpaca as a Christmas present! I was absolutely delighted as I adore alpacas, and I’m going to name this one Honey after Charli Honey (her blog name) <3

I got her some Korean black pearl face masks for her Christmas present, and now I’m thinking that I really ought to pamper myself a little bit! I never have time to relax with all of the uni work and work stuff I had to do, but I’d love it if I just had one day a week to do something relaxing… What do you do to relax on your days off? Or are you like me and is a workaholic (hahaha).

That was it for our Christmas meetup! Even though we didn’t see each other until later – I had uni work to do and she had work – I still had lots of fun. I missed her so much!

Outfit & look for the Christmas meetup:

The bright light drowned my blusher ;_; 

Denim shirt: Primark  |  Knitwear: Select  |  Shorts: Reveal  |  Tights: Select  |  Heeled boots: New Look

Okay, now onto event number two! I drove home for Christmas after work and was just so happy to be with the ones I loved. It had been ages since I saw everyone so I spent most of Christmas with my family and my boyfriend.

We didn’t do much on Christmas Eve as I was absolutely knackered from driving, but on Christmas day we dolled up and watched lots of movies! The one we watched in particular was Monsters University. I love that film!

Me & my gorgeous sister!

I was so ridiculously spoilt this year! I got a gorgeous new bag, jewellery, clothes, a personalised, calendar, some DVDs, chocolate… And lots more! I was going to take a photo of everything out of the bag but I really, really couldn’t be bothered. Eating lots of chocolate has made me lazy D:

My outfit & look for the day:

(wooow my sister’s mirror was so dusty…)
Dress, hoodie & jewellery: MA*RS | Belt: GOLDS Infinity
 Tights: Select | Boots: Dorothy Perkins

I didn’t bother to do my hair that day because 1) I woke up pretty late and 2) I was bursting to open presents and really couldn’t be bothered. I literally jumped onto everyone’s bed to wake them up… I’m not a child, I swear.

Christmas event number 3: Boxing Day! Boxing Day is the British equivalent to Black Friday, and it’s where all the sales start. I literally rolled out of bed, and went out to town to hunt done some bargain items but I ended up only buying one thing that was actually in the sale. There was just nothing left for me to buy! I guess that means I have more money to spend later on…

Oh wow that’s a terrible photo! I’m so sorry!

My sister, mum and I then treated ourselves to some food at Pizza Hut and boy it was filling! I can never seem to eat more than a couple of slices of pizza before I feel full, and yet I could eat a mountain of Sunday Roast dinner. Hmm.

I’m not actually going to upload a picture of my outfit as it was really, really plain… The only pretty thing was the MA*RS skirt, and the sweater made me look all weird… Sorry guys!

Anyways, I guess that’s all for now! Sorry for the rambling and the never-ending list of photos… But I just wanted to do everything Christmas-related in one post so that I can move onto the new year. I’m just so excited! Are you?

One final photo~


Until next week!

It’s A Love/Hate Relationship

It’s A Love/Hate Relationship

 

Okay I don’t know how many times I’ve written this post but boy this must be what, the fifth or sixth time where I just deleted everything and wrote again? I don’t know. Oh well, hopefully this will be the last time I write this blog post (or I swear I’m just gonna’ give up and have nothing but pictures on it, haha).

Gal, to me, is a bit of a love/hate relationship; yes I’ve finally managed to find a glue that’s suitable for my eye but I do need to make sure I wash my brushes etc every time before I use them. This is kind of a pain in the butt so I tend only to do gal make once a week because I just don’t have the time for it… And mainly because when I doll up I end up taking pictures instead of doing what I should be doing i.e. driving to uni. Whoops.

So I might be posting some coords etc on here but skip the gal make and hair. Right now I just want to focus on my coords before moving onto anything else. I put hair last because I really, really suck at doing hair. If only I had a personal hair stylist or someone to help me out with this!

I’m going to make Sunday my gal day so that I can feel “normal”. It’s basically what I did before I started doing it everyday and then f*cking up my eye and making my skin go all sensitive. Until then I’ll be doing natural makeup everyday. It’s not gal but I’m happy, and that’s the most important thing, right?

Enough of the chit chat and onto the photos! Doing agejo again because damn I love that style so much ❤

I actually really like the photo above! It’s weird because I took this when I turned off my table lamp and it produced a really nice ‘glow’. Unfortunately it does make my face look a little too orange and drown my blusher though haha.

I went for the softer gal makeup as this is the eyeshadow technique that I normally use in my daily makeup.

Top lashes: Sakurina Fairy Lash Beauty Eye | Bottom lashes: KKCenterHK
Top & Skirt: MA*RS | Belt: GOLDS Infinity | Heels: Dorothy Perkins | Jewellery: Muse
Close up details~

So how often do you do gal? Are you all lucky enough to actually have time to do it everyday? If so, I’m uber jealous of you. Damn I miss those days where I can wear lashes every day without worrying about anything.

That’s all for now. Talk soon!
