Baby Come Back

Baby Come Back

Oui c’est moi, Lizzie, back from her much-deserved break! Eurgh I seriously needed it as the past few weeks have been crazy! I’m so excited to be back not wearing makeup to uni and doing lots of work… Not.

Anyways, today’s post is about my time at MCM Expo! I was working with my bby Pixie at her Pixie Bunny stall and I had so much fun! I met loads of new people despite working behind the stall, and took part in the fashion show representing Agejo-gal. I was so nervous though, so when it was my turn to walk down the ‘catwalk’ I rushed my poses so I could hurry away. How embarrassing ><” Luckily I worked alongside Jada and Rosanna, or I would’ve died in embarrassment.

Here’s me and my lovely Pixie <3

I was also working right behind Charli and Dom who were working at the hentai store and omg she’s got such amazing boobs *_* People couldn’t stop staring at her, and I joked that she’s the reason why they had so many customers hahahaha.

Oh and something really amazing happened. I was serving one of our customers and she looked up at me and exclaimed, “Oh!” I got a bit worried until she asked if I ran a blog called mysticthorn, and told me she was one of my readers >///< I was so happy! It’s such an amazing feeling, and the cutie even asked if she could have a photo so here’s me and her!

Her FB page: https://www.facebook.com/sachiecosplay

I mentioned that I went on the catwalk, didn’t I? And how I was so nervous that I felt like such a fail? Well, here are some photos!

After the catwalk we had some photos taken of us individually and as groups! :3

I absolutely love this photo <3 Me, Jada & Rosanna!

Okay so I’m kind of running out of words so I guess I can let the photos do the talking.

Me wearing one of Pixie Bunny’s rabbit ears! Aren’t they adorable?

A special mention to Svetlana who I finally got to meet after knowing her for seven years!

You could tell I had so much fun by the way that I’m grinning like an idiot in almost all of my photos, d’oh! Oh well…

Look & Outfit

This was my look for the day ~ I woke up super early in order to curl my hair, only for it to die because our darling England seemed to be suffering from a lot of wind & rain this month >_>

Jewellery: MA*RS and Primark
Top: MA*RS
Skirt: MA*RS
Socks: Peacocks
Heels: Dorothy Perkins

I guess that’s all for now! Wow it’s getting cold now isn’t it? So warm up my darlings! Don’t want you all getting ill or anything (like I did the other week ;_;) <3

Love you all! <3

P.S I actually had to cut down on the majority of my photos because there were so many ^^”

 

When you are close to me I shiver

Definitely need a break right now.

Even though I’ve got a little timetable I’ve been stressing about uni work so much lately, especially because it’s coming to the end of the year and this final project is big and yet I’m so focused on one of the smaller projects as it’s due in first. It’s just so difficult working on something that you have no inspiration for, and holding back on the one you really want to do… Oh wells.

Writing this blog post is a nice breather for me because I love blogging. It’s like a little diary to me and people like you beautiful readers really do keep me inspired and motivated <3 So thank you, for taking your time in reading my blog!

I’ve been getting used to using my Facebook page now so that’s definitely been growing. It’s just so nice to post little snippets of my goings-on without having to wait to post on here! 

So my lil’ sis had a birthday party sometime ago, and it was great because it gave me a reason to doll up (aha) and it was nice to spend time with her. I didn’t get drunk (mostly because I was worrying about her and everyone else like an old granny) but it was still pretty cool.

People have mentioned that I should smile a little more… So here we go! 😀

I’m still going through that phase of doing gal with no lens, and another reason I have to add to my list is that Mukuchu is closing down! Yes, my beloved Mukuchu, the place where I would get my circle lens because of their reliability and quality ;_; </3 I’m so sad so I might hurry and buy one last pair… 

Upper lashes: Angel Eye   Lower lashes: Princess Eye

It’s been way over a year ago since I wore this top! I guess it’s because I later on bought more brand items, but my love for this one has been rekindled <3

Top: GOLDS Infinity  Skirt: Primark  Tights: Primark  Heels: Dorothy Perkins
Earrings & Necklace: Muse  Belt: Online (idk what the brand is)

Eurgh my herp-derp face D:

 

Chinese New Year!

Chinese New Year!

Happy Chinese New Year guys!

I know that it was in fact three days ago but thought I’d better say it late then never ;D

My boyfriend came down to see me for the weekend so we celebrated both Valentines and Chinese New Year! We decided not to get each other anything for Valentines because it’ll be our anniversary soon~ So we’re saving up for money for then 😛

Friday and Saturday were spent watching Sherlock – yes I have converted him to be a Sherlockfan ;D –  because I had uni and then work on Saturday, but on Sunday I drove over to the Wing Yip and bought loads of Chinese food! It’s been too long <3 I bought tons of dumplings and mantou… I think it might last me for quite a while ;D I was going to take photos but didn’t really have the time.

In the evening we went out to Cosmo! We were originally going to go to this other place but we realised that we had booked it at another city because the website didn’t state that it wasn’t in our hometown >< But Cosmo was still really nice! It’s much smaller than the one in my hometown but the food was delicious. I took full advantage of the Eton Mess ;D

I wore my complete MA*RS set and my new necklace! I was going to wear the bracelet but it’s slightly – ever so slightly – too big so I need to find a way to adjust that ><

I wasn’t too sure if it was okay to wear this because it started snowing, again. Eurgh I thought that I had finally escaped the snow and rain but HELL NAW.

Set: MA*RS
Tights: Primark
Shoes: Dorothy Perkins
Jewellery: Muse and Di Depux

Upper lashes: Jewerich no.2
Lower lashes: Beauty Eye by Diamond Lash

Okay so I guess that’s all for now! Hope you all had a brilliant New Year 😀 I did!

You Are My Sunshine

 

My Only Sunshine…

Yes, the weather has improved a lot lately! I swear I get so excited over small things like it’s getting darker a bit later and being able to hear the birds in the morning… Just reminds me that Spring is just around the corner!

But yes. The stress of my old uni projects is over (for now). I do have a new project which seems pretty interesting but I no longer have to stare at business cards and read books about the Industrial Revolution anymore! I actually said to my friend when driving home, “Oh it’s busy because everyone’s going to the Industrial Revolution” instead of “Industrial Estate”. Been doing waaaay too much uni work.

So Monday was one of those days where I was crazy enough to get up early before uni; I’m not too sure why I did it but I found myself dolling up! I did “casual” makeup though because of the fact that I had uni, and I didn’t have time to curl my hair (and I really wanted to curl it ;_;) nor do any contouring but that’s mainly because of my cold D:

I guess I dolled up because I was heading to Wagamama after all of my projects were submitted with my uni friends! I actually had a reason to doll up aha.  

Eye make~ Diamond Lash Angel Eye & Beauty Eye

I got a chance to wear my bear hoodie! Believe it or not I was going to sell it but… It was so adorable that I couldn’t let it go so I just quickly thought up of some coords so that I had an excuse to wear it ;D

eBay hoodie, Reveal shorts, West Coast leggings, Peacocks socks, eBay boots

My MA*RS dresses arrived in the post as well that day! I’m so happy, and they haven’t really helped me with my obsession over MA*RS. Oops. Oh wells! I just couldn’t resist buying them though.

Here are pictures of me wearing my two dresses 😀 Sorry for the image quality, was quite dark when I got home… Next time I’ll post better ones when I think up of decent coords and things ;D

All my makeup was coming off at this point ;_;

 

That’s all for today I guess! Got quite a lot of pictures this time… Well, see you next time! 😀

p.s It’s now Sunday and the weather is shite. Boo. 

Treading Water

Wow okay this was totally not supposed to happen, but I just found myself with nothing to do and I thought: why don’t I doll up? It’s been ages since I’ve done so so I thought I’d give it a shot. As you may or may not already know that I haven’t really had any quality time to myself as I’ve been doing lots of uni work – so it was nice to just relax and do nothing all day!

But because I haven’t been blogging in so long or taking a break from my work (apart from yesterday’s post) I found myself treading water; I’m not really going anywhere but I’m still trying to get through all of these barriers that are like waves crashing over me. I’m at loss of what to do and I just want to sit back and not have to worry about anything.

The thing is that I want to do my absolute best at getting the grades needed at uni to be a successful designer, and I’m just dying to get there.

Anyway, enough of this rambling and onto the photos! I’m going to do gal around once a week to keep me going for the #dandie challenge on instagram! #dandie is basically a gyaru tag game to where Danyy and Chaudie try to do our best gal look and post it in instagram. Anyone who wants more exposure to other gals are welcome to participate, and it’s created by the lovely Chaudie and Danyy 😀

Dress from Boohoo.com, belt from Blue Banana,
accessories from Primark and eBay

It actually turned out to be a lot colder than expected so I put on a few more layers!

Sweater from Select

I was initially going to put my hair into pigtails because it’s been ages since I’ve actually done with my hair. I have the hair skills of a turtle D: I couldn’t decide whether to keep my hair down so I went along and took some photos with pigtails anyway.

So… I don’t know which one to pick! Which do you guys prefer; hair down or hair up? ^^

That’s all for now~

I’m Singing Along Like There’s No Tomorrow

I’m Singing Along Like There’s No Tomorrow

Okay now that I haven’t met up with anyone I actually have nothing to write about. 

Well, that’s a lie really, because I’m writing a blog post right now… But it’s only because I am taking a break from the endless uni work that has been given to me to complete in a measly four days. I’m quite excited about this project to be honest as I’ve been told to create a logo, letterhead, business card and compliment slip. 

But enough about uni work because I’m just so tired of it right now!

What I want to blog about today is my look for today. Like I said before I had been doing tons of uni work and normal work so I’ve been lazy and wore no makeup for a week. Seems like an age to me! I’ve been listening to a lot of Maroon 5 hence my choice of title~ It’s from the song Ladykiller which is just so awesome.

 
Real MA*RS jumper, New Look Vest, Julia Boutique
belt, Reveal shorts, Select tights, Dorothy Perkins boots
Might not use Princess Eye anymore… They’re so fragile and annoying ><

I would also like to announce that I’ll be posting more regularly, and shall have fixed days! I shall let you all know what days I’ll be blogging on once I’ve figured it out ^^

Thanks for reading!

 

Heeeeeeey Sexy Lady!

*title totally not a reference to Gangnam Style… /cough*

This week has been the first week that I actually put in some effort into my makeup; over the summer I haven’t bothered doing it because I was either staying at home or going to work, and so I properly wore makeup for the first time in ages when I went to Cambridge. Then I stopped for a while, but now I’m back!

It was my boyfriend’s birthday party on Friday – the perfect chance to wear my new skirt! It was my first time wearing it because I wanted to buy some bits and bobs to go with it… I was actually quite excited, I kid you not. 

Another reason of why I was excited was because it was going to be the first time I had “gone out” in ages. I can’t remember the last time I felt good enough to actually go out before this (maybe when I went out with the girlies?) Anyways, I had a really really good time… It was so nice to see all of my old friends again! 

Anyways, here’s my look for that day! :3

dusty mirror is dusty.

Primark top, Muse necklace & earrings, MA*RS skirt, 

Primark suspender tights, Dorothy Perkins heels

Oh and I have one more picture to show you…

“My body is ready.”

Eurgh my boyf’s cat is amazing. 

On a final note: I don’t have a clue on what to do with my YouTube Channel. I would love to do more videos but I’m not sure if it’s my thing? ;_; Idk. I guess it’s because I’ve ran out of ideas on what to do D:

So my question for today is: Got anything you would you like to ask me? :3 I’m going to do a “questions” tag or something like that, just to keep the YouTube updated. 

Until next time, ladies and gentlemen! 

PuriKura time in London & a Lil’ Announcement!

Today I went to London with my boyf <3 We originally intended to leave at around 8.50, but that really didn’t go to plan. Whoopsies. What happened was that I was gonna’ get up at like 7am to get ready and shizz but I was just waaay too tired and went back to sleep.
Because of that I was so forgetful! ;_; I forgot my lens case, my umbrella, my gloves… And so many other things! Luckily I made a drink at the last minute ’cause we would’ve died of thirst without it D:

So at half 10ish we walked to the station to get to London for 11.10, and we arrived there just before 12! We went straight to Chinatown to eat some gorgeous buns <3 (Later I’ll update this post with a piccie as it’s on my boyf’s phone~). We then just shopped around (well, lurked lolololol) and I bought some ramen noodles as the Udon noodles that I bought last time weren’t very nice D:

Then it was puri kura time! The main reason I wanted to go to London was to take puri kura, ’cause we didn’t have the chance last time at the Pink Marble meet ;_; And they came out brilliantly! 😀

I can’t decide which one’s my favourite ’cause they’re all so pretty! Stef looks as cute as ever <3

Japan centre was next because I really wanted to buy the new issue of Ageha but it was quite disappointing ;_; But ah wells! Was still so pretty *_* I think I might start collecting it or something instead of getting scans ~ But Idk >_>

KFC was completely packed, and it was only by sheer luck that me and Stef managed to get a seat. I haven’t had a KFC is pharken’ ages so it was so good to taste it again! Had a boneless banquet tehe <3

Stef decided that he wanted to go to see the Big Ben and shizz, so off we went! The architecture is so beautiful *_* And the houses of parliament were so pretty! <3 I didn’t manage to take a piccie as it was really crowded and getting dark so my phone didn’t pick anything up ;_; We went to St.Jame’s Park afterwards, and a squirrel was so so so close to me o_O Like, just an inch from my foot. It was so cuuuute! *_* The houses of Parliament was right next to it so we went over there toooo~ It’s a shame we can’t go in it though o_O

And then we headed home! I wanted to go to Camden Town earlier but I was just waaay too tired so I didn’t bother 😛 But next time I will! I wanna go to Oxford Street too >_>

A couple of days ago I made a decision; that I’m not gonna’ give a damn what anyone else thinks anymore. Lately I have been so stressed out about wanting to look 100% Gyaru that I stopped posting because none of the pictures I took were 100%. I got really really down, and so fed up because of all of the hate in the Gal comm. 

I used to post shit loads, like, a post every two days. And do you know why? It was because I was doing it for fun, and didn’t feel as if I was forced to look good beforehand. So I’m gonna’ start posting whatever the hell I want without any care that I might get slagged off or something, because I just can’t be pharked. 

Aaah crap sorry for all of the swearing in the last part! ;_; Buuuut I just couldn’t think of any other way to express myself 😛 

Think that’s all for now! I wanted to show you pictures of my coords from a couple of weeks back but they’re on my laptop, and I’m using my brand new and shiny mac ;D Mwahahaha. 

Gyaru theme with Katie~ Week one!

I mentioned a couple of blogs ago that I’ll be doing a weekly theme with Katie-san, and yesterday I dolled myself up for it 😀 The tutorial that me and Katie decided to use for the first week was this one:

Although instead of using green I used blue

Sooo… *drumroll* Here is my make! 😀

What I used:

Gold & light blue & dark blue eyeshadow

Liquid eye liner

Pencil eyeliner for the waterline

Brown eyeshadow to fill my brows

Pink lippy

False lashes

FCUK bronzer for contouring

Bourjois for highlighting

Compact powder

Concealer

And here’s my outfit! I’ve blurred out my surroundings ’cause I don’t really want people to see what I’ve got in my room lawls

I really can’t wait to do more of these posts! Because then hopefully I would be able to improve as a Gyaru and learn different make up techniques 😀 I’m also doing this task that Amelie has set me where I take pictures of my clothes and create a coord with them, inspired by the Gyaru fashion ^^
