It hit me the other day that in March 2011, I was sat in front of my laptop and writing up my first ever blog post on this blog. Yep, March 2011. These past 8 years have just flown by and gone are the days where I took crap selfies ...

Things I Can’t Wait to Tick Off My 2019 Check List

My 2018, although amazing, had been a bit all over the place as I didn't have any idea what I wanted or what I was doing. It wasn't until I wrote about my dream life that I was able to reset my focus, so I want everything about this year ...

The Life of a Gaijin Gyaruo

The Life of a Gaijin Gyaruo

Okay, I admit it - I will put my hands up and say that I don't talk a lot about gyaruo on this blog, and that's because I don't really know much about them. I've only met a handful of gyaruo/gyaruo (the male equivalent of gyaru) and, sadly, we only have ...

Mission I’m-Possible: Creating the Life I Love

I’ve never been one of those people who have had yearly goals, let alone 5 year plans, and so I’ve been going about my days without really knowing what I wanted in life. Sure, I listened to an endless amount of podcasts on growing my blog & Etsy store - ...

Hello m’dears, it is your gyaru granny speaking. I’ve been into gyaru for nearly 10 years now and it has evolved so much during that time, so it can seem a bit overwhelming to come across it as a beginner as there’s so much to take in. Here are my ...

Is Being Gyaru Lonely?

Is Being Gyaru Lonely?

I know what you're thinking - Is it even possible to feel lonely doing/being gyaru? Gyaru is, after all, a fashion, so how can you feel lonely by just wearing different clothes? For me, gyaru is more than that. It's what made me fall in love with Japan in general and ...
