Mini Life Update

gaijin gyaru, lifestyle blogger, mini life update

Hello, hey, hi. It’s been a while since I’ve been able to have a proper sit down chat with you so I thought it was time we did this before I get into doing more of my posts on Japan (how exciting). Right now I’m nursing an awful cough that was actually caused by my hayfever but I’m trying to get my thoughts together for this post.

Just duck and carry on

 

The past year has taught me that no matter what sh*t life throws at you, just duck and then carry on.

I’ve been through a pretty rough time and I’m still recovering, but everyday I feel a little bit better. I’ve learnt that I’ve got to live each day to the max – with the occasional lazy day – and spend as much time as I can with the ones I love. Who knows what might happen tomorrow.

I guess that’s why I’ve been working my ass off this past year to get those grades that I want, because I really want to be successful career-wise. Whenever I wasn’t doing any uni work I was chatting to my friends online or visiting my family and spending time with my boyfriend, and recently I have been able to meet my friends like Charli (the loveliest girly in the world <3) more often so life is definitely getting better! Hopefully I can meet up more people over the summer now that uni is nearly over.

So what is the meaning of this post? I don’t know, I just wanted to ramble like a wise woman ahahaha. But I guess this is a message to all of my readers that never walk away from the people you love, and if you have a goal then work your ass off and get there! And if you’re going through a rough time; life will get better

That aside, here are some pictures of my recent look. I haven’t dolled up recently because I still have problems with my eye – I really need to get it checked out – so it was a nice breather! 

 

 

I realised that after I had done my makeup I was running out of time because I wanted to watch Criminal Minds *cough* so had to stick with straight hair!

Upper lashes; Jewerich no.2  Lower lashes: KKCenterhk
Top: Boohoo.com ; Jeans: New Look (ripped up by me)
Boots: New Look ; Necklace: eBay

I’ve also set myself a goal which is to no longer buy brand clothing (I wonder how long this will last). I realised that I should be saving money instead of splurging because I’ve been driving a lot more, and petrol costs a bomb. I do still want to treat myself every once in a while so I might stick with building up on my accessories collection as I seem to always wear the same things.

So as a treat for completing my uni work a week before the deadline, I bought some Ben & Jerrys!

To end this post; so what are my goals in life? I have already mentioned how I want to be a successful designer, but I think I would also love to grow as a gaijin gyaru and perhaps meet more people in the community as there are so many nice people out there! I also want to start immersing myself into the design community, get more feedback, make some friends, and just keep growing! I’m going to start building up my portfolio over the summer whenever I get the chance to as I think I’ve found something I really like to do.

Anyway, adios amigos, until next time! Now allow me to go and gorge myself on some delicious ice cream.

 

 

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~
