kawaii wardrobe transformation ♡

Hey cutie! How are you? ♡

Thank you so much for your sweet messages about my wardrobe situation… I’m really pleased to say that our fly situation has been sorted, and I haven’t seen any flies for the last 3 days!!!! Gosh I’m so relieved. It was really stressing me out (>﹏<)

Now that things are kind of back to “normal” I decided to take this chance to do-up my wardrobe! A kawaii wardrobe transformation, if you will (♡°▽°♡) I’ve been chatting to my bby Rinmero and she really inspired me to make my wardrobe space cuter (although I’m super jealous of her wardrobe).

Offbrand Gyaru Challenge ★ Recent Co*Des

Hey cutie! How are you? ♡ Today I wanted to introduce you to the “Offbrand Challenge!” This is tied together with my latest YouTube video, where basically you put together some gyaru outfits but with completely offbrand items. This is something I used to do a lot when I first started gyaru, especially because back then I didn’t really have any brand items. So here are a few outfits that I’ve worn that are completely offbrand!

Beach Break Day 2 ♡ Mudeford Beach

hello decome

Hey cutie ♡ yesterday was day 2 of our Dorset adventure! I didn’t get a chance to write a blog post because I was way too tired Anyway, we decided to go to Mudeford beach which is near Bournemouth before heading back home. The weather was so much better than it was on Thursday – it was so sunny that I actually got a bit sunburnt lol (ノ*°▽°*)

↓↓↓ ♡ Oh btw! I also vlogged about our trip if you fancy watching it ♡ ↓↓↓

Anyway, back to the blog post…

What’s New, Gyaru? with DD + cowgirl co☆de ♡

Hey cutie ♡ 你好小可爱! How are you? I’m so sleepy right now but on Saturday I had an absolutely amazing time with DD for her “What’s New, Gyaru?” series! I was really nervous and worried about it but she made me feel at ease (ღ˘⌣˘ღ) We talked about my gyaru journey and my love for himekaji as well as my inspirations and things I didn’t like about gyaru.

I wore one of my favourite Liz Lisa dresses for it, and my outfit was heavily inspired by Yui Kanno! She wore this in the 2010 Liz Lisa Spring Collection and I fell in love as soon as I saw it. It has a lovely ruffle detail at the bottom with embroidered (is that the right term?) flowers all over the denim material. I feel like maybe this is one of my favourite looks this year! If only I took a proper picture of my outfit (*/▽\*) oh well, maybe next time!

How I Live My Gyaru Life!

Posted on

Hey cutie ♡ 你好小可爱! How are you? Thank you so much for your lovely comments on my last post – I’m trying my best to spread things out so that I don’t get burnout, and I really hope to get my energy levels back on track. Anyway, today I want to publish a post I’ve been meaning to write for a very long time about how I live my gyaru life! I did a YouTube video about this a while back that you could watch. For me, gyaru is not only a fashion, but a lifestyle!

Before we dive right in I do want to add a little disclaimer: this is not me trying to say that the things I mention in this post and on that video are gospel. There is no right or wrong, but this is just my gyaru lifestyle and how I personally view the gyaru subculture.

Exciting News! A New Queen in Our Gyarusa!

Hey cutie! How are you? I’m sorry about how negative I was in my last post… and thank you so much for your kind words. Today is going to be a lot more positive because we have a new queen in our Gyaru circle (aka Gyarusa)* – Risa! I’m so happy that she’s joined QueenE and can’t wait to do more meets in the North of England once things have calmed down a little bit.  I created a quick purikura to celebrate this special occasion! 

Gyaru Room Tour!

Hey cutie! How are you? We are now in our second lockdown which means that it’s going to be even longer until I can see my friends and family again and to be honest I’m really upset about it… So I’m going to throw myself into another lockdown project to keep me going! Last time we completely redecorated our bedroom, and today I want to do a lil’ gyaru room tour with you! Honestly I’m so happy with our room and it’s finally looking how I always wanted it to look. So let me show you around…

The Ins and Outs of Running a Gyaru Magazine

Papillon, a magazine for Western Gyaru, has been a HUGE success. They’ve only just released their second volume but it’s crammed full with useful tutorials, inspirational outfits, not to mention really cute designs! But behind this magazine is a whole team of inspiring gyaru, and today I’m having a chat with Lea (the head of the magazine) on the ins and outs of running a gyaru magazine.
