My Recent Gyaru Haul: Cute Things for Spring!

Hey guys! How are you today? ♡

I went on an online shopping spree a few weeks ago and yesterday the last item arrived so I can finally show you all what I bought! I know what you’re thinking, “oh Lizzie is buying stuff AGAIN”, but I’ve got a very good excuse this time and that is that everything was from eBay!

Well, sorta’.

I’ve just been so fed up of spending so much money on gyaru brand that I’ve taken a step back and refused to buy anything unless it was dirt cheap or secondhand from a friend. I’m going cold turkey and be a budget gyaru! I feel so much better about it and now I can spend more money on seeing my friends.

And now presenting, my recent gyaru buys!

Sticking with the pastel-coloured theme, I bought this baby pink crop
top & aqua blouse because I think they would work really well with
my white Liz Lisa shorts & the new shoes! Obviously it would be too early in the year to wear the aqua one, but I think it’ll look really nice with a white blazer for the office. I love it when I can wear one item for lots of different styles!

The tights were supposed to be “white” but they came out cream… But I guess it’ll still be okay with my shorts and pastel coords. 

The sunglasses & daisy hair clips are for when I want to go for a cute, summery look, and I could wear them with my Liz Lisa stuff too 😀 Or even for the Swankiss-style coords! Who knows! They were too cute not to buy.

These shoes are probably one of the most beautiful ones I’ve owned. I’ve been looking for ones similar to these for a really long time and with the help of my cutie Melissa, I managed to find them! I was careful this time and asked the seller for measurements before buying them, and they fit perfectly. I can’t wait to put an outfit together with these babies.

I’m a bit of a hoarder when it comes to phone cases and I couldn’t help myself when I saw this one. It’s just so so cute! I’m not too sure about the “hello coolway” bit though… It’s obviously a replica, but it’s still cute!

I bought this phone charm from my bby Charli who owns Honey LY. It’s so adorable! I’ve been falling in love with Little Twin Stars more, especially because blue, pink & white are my favourite colours. It’s a shame that I won’t be able to use it with my new phone case as it hasn’t got a place to hang it off ;_; But nevermind! I have plenty of other cases for that.

And last, but definitely not least, my Ageha magazine that my friend Emmie managed to get this for me from Japan! I’m so happy that Ageha has made a comeback; the makeup is still a little plain but hopefully it’ll get more dramatic soon. Here are my favourite pages:

Gah I totally forgot that I bought this Liz Lisa sweater from the lovely Pixie! It’s too warm to wear right now, but at least I have something cute for autumn/winter.

I’m really happy with all of my buys! It’s just so nice buying lots of things but for really cheap prices tehe. I think I’ll be living off eBay for a while but it’s not a bad thing. I’ve got a few things I want to buy like frilly socks so I’ll upload more photos on my Facebook page and Instagram.

So what have you guys bought recently?

Until next Sunday~

A Touch of Magic!

A Touch of Magic!

Hey cuties! How are you today? ♡

I went to see Cinderella with a friend last weekend! I was supposed to see it ages ago but I had to push back my plans because I was ill ;_; So it gave me something to look forward to!

I decided to wear something a bit more ‘princess-y’, and what’s more princess-like than my Liz Lisa set? I’m so happy that I was able to get this from Kawaii Gyaru Shop as they sell out so quickly… I’m hoping to get more Liz Lisa items when it gets warmer. Idk why but I’ve been really digging light, ‘girly’ gyaru looks!

Instead of wearing the whole set I just wore the top and paired it with some light-coloured jeans to make it look more casual. It’s finally starting to get warm enough to wear all of my spring stuff!

I also received my Sailor Moon Selfie Stick from Official Syndrome Store that I won in a giveaway back in February! There were a few complications with shipping (Easter is a b*tch in terms of postage) but I was so happy to receive it in the end. I was so worried that it was going to be lost in the mail again.

As I had an hour or so to spare I decided to have a play around with it. I’m still trying to get to grips with it… I can’t balance anything to save my life! 

I love this selfie stick! It’s going to take me a while to get used to, but it’s so cute! ꒰* ॢꈍ◡ꈍ ॢ꒱.*˚‧♡

After my selfie session I went off to the cinema! Is it me or is it getting more and more expensive to go and watch films nowadays? I easily spent nearly £15 just buying a ticket and some popcorn o_o Such a rip off! But I had a really nice time all the same. I just loved Cinderella’s ball dress, and the prince was played by Richard Madden who I really liked in Game of Thrones. 

That dress *_*

After the cinema I then treated myself to some ice-cream/sundae! I got ‘Chocolate Overload’ and it was delicious *3*

That’s all for today! Have you guys seen Cinderella? I would definitely recommend the film to those
who love Disney! It pretty much stuck to the original storyline, and the
costume design was amazing.

Until next Sunday~

Kawaii Gyaru Shop Review: Vintage Doll

Kawaii Gyaru Shop Review: Vintage Doll

 

Hey cuties! How are you today? Hope you’re having a good weekend so far! I can’t believe it’s September already… It’s so depressing because I’m a summer baby ;_; But I’m also really excited to see the autumn trends! And perhaps to do some more shopping? *_*

Anyway, today I want to talk about this beautiful dress sponsored by the wonderful Kawaii Gyaru Shop . It’s from the super cute brand “Liz Lisa” which I seem to be falling in love with more and more each day! I’m hoping to expand my himekaji wardrobe but it looks like it’s put on hold as I have way too many clothes.

This is a photo of it that I had taken in my first sponsored review post for Kawaii Gyaru Shop! 

Liz Lisa Chiffon Dress

I was really looking forward to wearing this because of the recent change to autumn. I couldn’t want to wear browns, reds and blacks and this dress was perfect for it! It hasn’t gotten that cold that I needed to wear a sweater as it has two layers which makes the dress great for this kind of weather. Plus, I adore the sleeves so didn’t really want to cover them up :3 

I couldn’t decide whether or not to wear it with my brown boots but as it’s still quite mild I decided to go with my new brogues! I actually bought these from the kids section (tehehehe).

Dress: Kawaii Gyaru Shop (Liz Lisa) / Bag: Primark / Shoes: New Look / Acc: Primark & Forever21

This dress is definitely a lot longer than the ones I have previously owned, which I wasn’t quite used to! But I think the length is perfect for autumn because it covers the legs more to keep them warm(er). I think the frill at the bottom makes it feel like it’s shorter because it’s quite lightweight!

And, of course, have some selfies! Please ignore my hair… One section fell out when I was sleeping so it’s not as wavy as the others ( •̣̣̣̣̣̥́௰•̣̣̣̣̣̥̀ )

Me not being able to think of anymore poses

This dress is just so perfect *3* I am in love with the pattern, especially because it has red and brown hues… I was looking for some inspo to layer this up so when I went out I paired it with a very light cream coat. I’ll show more pictures in my next post of when I went out with my London gals :3

Overall I would definitely recommend getting Liz Lisa products from Kawaii Gyaru Shop. It is authentic and they always sell really beautiful collections there. I’m currently stalking them for ideas on what to wear for winter (but I must be good and refrain breaking my bank too much). The owner is incredibly friendly and always makes quick responses, and the shipping was really quick too!

They also sell quite a lot of other brands and some Sanrio items too! *_*

Until then, have a good week m’lovelies! <3

p.s. Please remember that most of the items from Kawaii Gyaru Shop are one/off because they do not sell replicas! Everything is the real-deal, so get it before it goes! ;D

p.p.s is there anything you want to see more of on my blog? I always look for ways to improve, and your input means a lot to me! <3

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.

Set, necklace & belt: MA*RS /  Shoes: Topshop / Accessories: Primark & eBay

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!

Sugar & Spice

Sugar & Spice

Hey everyone! How are you?
I’ve had a fantastic week (and weekend) so far; I’m back at home with my family and friends and I didn’t realise how much I’ve missed everyone until I had to drive home. I just couldn’t wait to get past all of the traffic! I guess home really is where the heart is.

I spent the first few days meeting my old friends and having good quality catch-up time, and what’s better to catch up then over some shopping and iced coffee? Below are my three outfits on the days that I went out! 

Sweetheart
This was my outfit where I met up with my friend Annie, and perhaps the first time I wore “proper” makeup in a long time. As you can see, I couldn’t stay away from MA*RS for long. I’ve decided that it’s going to be hard to completely avoid it so I’m going to keep on wearing it until I’ve built up my hime wardrobe. It was on this day that I started my shopping spree… Whoops.

 

Top: MA*RS / Shorts: Reveal / Heels: Dorothy Perkins / 

Acc: Muse & GOLDS Infinity

I put my hair up because it got way too hot with it down… Summer is definitely here!

Lace & Frills
And this was my outfit when I went to see “The Fault in Our Stars” with my sister! I wore my new shorts and top because it was way too hot to wear the dress with it. I also wore my new shoes as well (which I adore, by the way).

I haven’t really done this sort of style before… It was really “sweet”, but I really like it! It’s completely different to what I usually wear. I followed one of the tutorials in my post “Easy Gyaru Makeup & Hair Tutorials” as I didn’t have time to style it dramatically. 

 Blouse: New Look / Shorts: Spreepicky / Socks: Primark /

I know I’m a bit behind but… Have you guys seen “The Fault in Our Stars”? I read the book so I knew it was going to happen but I still blubbed like a baby. I cried so much that my lower lashes were hanging halfway down my face. Not a good look.

Vintage Doll

This was another “sweet” coord where I wore my Liz Lisa dress kindly sponsored by Kawaii Gyaru Shop! I love it so so much, thank you sweetie Enter the code LIZBEE to get a discount!

So a little bit about the dress… It’s absolutely adorable. I felt like a doll pairing it with my new heeled brogues and lace socks, and it wasn’t too hot to wear at all despite it having two layers (which is great because then that means it isn’t see-through!) It’s really good for that casual-sweet style, and so I wore it when I met up with my friend for a meal and catch-up.

Kawaii Gyaru Shop sells lots and lots of cute Liz Lisa clothes as well as Sanrio accessories!

You should check them out! They are really nice and the owner is so lovely to talk to, and I think she has great taste. So go, buy! Tehehehe. ♡ Don’t forget to enter the code LIZBEE to get a discount!

Anyway, I guess that’s all for today. I hope you like my outfits! Have a lovely rest of the week, and I’ll see you next Sunday! Ciao~

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~

Sponsored Review: Kawaii Gyaru Shop

Hey everyone! How are you? I hope you all had a wonderful week. It’s been getting much warmer here now (about time) and so I’m feeling really positive despite my horrible hayfever ;_;

Today I’m super happy to bring you a review from Kawaii Gyaru Shop! I’ve been eyeing up this shop a lot lately due to my recent interest in hime kaji, and they also sell My Melody which is great. I was really happy when the owner, Stephanie, contacted me about doing a sponsored review. Even though this is a sponsored review, all opinions stated are my own!

Kogal at MCM!

Kogal at MCM!

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
Cersei Lannister
Think this might be Harley Quinn?
Haku!
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! 

Maleficent
SAAAAAAAM!
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
Khaleesi!
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
Letitia~
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!

persunmall review, himekaji, gyaru, gaijin gyaru

I am so sorry that I wasn’t able to post last week (but would you let me off because I posted it on my FB? Hahaha). I was just so caught up with uni work that I didn’t have the time to dress up nice or do anything about blogging so I had to take a break. But now that uni is over I feel a bit… Empty. I have been studying for most of my life and now I feel like I feel lost in reverie.

Starry Eyed

I did it again… Pressed “Publish” instead of “Save”. 

Woo I’m feeling inspired again!

I think that it’s all thanks to the weather; it’s getting warmer and there are some rays of sunshine… Could spring finally be here? (About time)
That aside, this week I’ve been doing a mixture of relaxing and uni work and, well, I’m feeling really good! I didn’t really have many good nights sleep but I had a long lie in yesterday and I feel so much better! I guess it’s a good thing to have lazy days every once in a while.
My uni work is coming along really well and because of that I feel better when I doll up because I know that it isn’t “wasting valuable design time”. Oui, I do graphic design, and it’s really hard to step away from the computer and not do any design.

I dolled up today because I had to get up early anyways so I had plenty of time to myself and come on, who would want to do uni work from half 7 in the morning? (I actually did that a couple of weeks ago… Was a killer). I originally wanted to wear my new MA*RS dress that Charli bought for me but alas, it’s too cold for it ;_; I can’t wait until summer when I could actually wear my pretty dresses!

Enough talking from me, have some pictures!

I lost my black necklace that I wanted to wear ;_;
