“Life is like a box of kawaii goodies… You never know what you gonna’ get” is what sprung to mind when Kawaii Box landed on my doorstep. A couple of weeks prior to this event, they had reached out to me to do a sponsored review for them, and how could I resist? Get cute stuff in the post? Why not! Fast forward to the time when it came to unravelling the goodies, I can happily say that I am completely satisfied. The service was amazing, the box was cute, the stuff in the box was also cute… Need I say more?
I have never actually done one of these posts before because a) my bags tend to be pretty messy and b) I’m such a chameleon so I rarely use the same bag for more than a week. I change bags depending on my outfit, and most of the time they’re stashed in a corner somewhere with a pile of forgotten receipts (update: I have now tidied that corner and there are no more receipts, yay!).
I really wanted to do one this time especially because now I can finally bring out my prettier bags as the weather is warmer. I just love my My Melody bag* – I’m a huge fan of Sanrio and My Melody is one of my favourite characters alongside Hello Kitty and Little Twin Stars.
Life has been quite… Hectic for me lately. I’m going through an emotional roller-coaster at the moment which was triggered by my stupid eye. To cut the story short; my eye went poop and my self-esteem went down. Thank goodness I have really supportive friends! I don’t know what I would do without you peeps.
This has really affected the “gyaru me” because gyaru is very make-up orientated, but I took this chance to look at other Japanese fashion styles. I haven’t pinpointed the one I like yet but I’m loving pastels and mermaids and general magical stuff lately! I went shopping with my friend Amy last weekend and bought this super cute mermaid blouse & pastel pink jeans, and I wore it to her birthday party.
So here goes… A new me! (Maybe?) I’m calling this my mermaid princess look tehe.
Wow, what a week! I finally finished uni and I feel so free and now I feel like doing some cartwheels and leaping through the air. If only I wasn’t so lazy; I’ll just eat some ice cream instead.
I thought it was time to actually get out the house for a bit and went with my boyfriend to MCM Expo! I really wanted to make an effort and even though I didn’t have a cosplay outfit I did manage to purchase this gorgeous dolly pink seifuku from Pixie Bunny. I cannot express how much I love this set! It made me feel all girly and cute.
This was my first time wearing a seifuku so I just had to go with the kogal theme. I spent ages thinking about what hairstyle to do and I didn’t actually decide on everything (makeup, hair etc) until the day. I am so unorganised! I’ll do better next time.
I decided to go with a mixture of sweet/dramatic and thought that my new My Melody bag went so well with it! I really like doing the “sweet” stuff but keeping my eye makeup really dramatic… Maybe I should do it more often?
Once I was finally ready I hopped off to London to Expo with my boyfriend! I was actually bursting with excitement because I was able to meet my friends who I haven’t seen in ages. I hadn’t been wearing gal makeup that much so I guess being able to fully doll up made me feel good too.
|Was getting way too excited…|
|Me & my honey <3333333|
Unfortunately I didn’t recognise a lot of the cosplayers there but they were still amazing and I managed to take snaps of my favourite ones! Warning: took quite a fair amount of photos.
|Jasmine & Aladdin|
|Belle – Superdebz Cosplay|
|Think this might be Harley Quinn?|
|Iron Man – Wheels of Steel|
By far one of the best cosplays I’ve ever seen, hands down. Just look at how much attention has been paid to the wheelchair!
|Sauron! The shoes kind of ruined it though, but he was still pretty cool|
|Wasn’t too sure who they were cosplaying but they were adorable!
And the girl on the left looked like Pixie tehehehe
|Yay another person in a seifuku!|
After my round of stalking taking photos of amazing cosplays I went off to hunt down my friends and attack them with hugs (tehehe). Uni had taken over my social life so I was so happy to see them all <3
|Charli, me & Marie|
|Charli, Yamii & I|
|Me & Charli bby! Love this girly <3|
|Rosanna & Wai-yi of Dreamy Bows!|
|Laurenn~ I loved her hair accessories|
|Paulina! She was adorable!|
|Jojo! This was my first time meeting her, she is so cute|
|Jessica looking as fabulous as ever. Wish I could pull off “dark” looks ;_;|
|PIXIE BBY <3|
I actually got really drowsy after a while so I didn’t really do much at expo apart from chatting to my friends and then buying some cute stuff (whilst stuffing my face with Japanese sweets). However we did out for dinner after Expo closed with my bby Pixie & her friends and ate gorgeous Korean food! Unfortunately me & my honey had to head home shortly afterwards to catch our train but I still enjoyed myself <3 I miss her so much!
I guess that’s all for now! Sorry I didn’t write much, I’m a bit of a zombie at the moment haha. Hope you have a lovely rest of the weekend! 😀

P.S. If anyone knows the people behind the cosplays & of their Facebook page, website etc, please let me know!
P.P.S I noticed that disqus is being a douche so if it doesn’t load, just refresh the page and it should work!
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.

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
