Does Elan Cafe London Live Up to the Hype?

Does Elan Cafe London Live Up to the Hype?

Posted on

We saw a sight we thought we’d never see; the streets of London were completely silent. Only those who were out for their morning job were out and about when we made our way to EL&N (Elan) Cafe in Knightsbridge. It was a Sunday morning and even I was wondering if we were crazy to be out in London this early in the morning, but the day was sunny and fresh – perfect for a cute cafe date. We arrived ten minutes before they opened and waited patiently outside while the staff were making preparations. I was so excited to go to Elan cafe that my sister exclaimed that it was as if I was waiting to meet a celebrity as I couldn’t stop fidgeting!

Living the Gal Life: London Gal Meet

Living the Gal Life: London Gal Meet

“The higher the hair, the closer you are to God.”

Hey! How’s your week been so far? The past few weeks of stress and lack of sleep was totally worth it; I managed to finish my projects a couple of weeks early, and I celebrated it by going to a gal meet! It was my friend Jada’s birthday some time ago so we wanted to do a gal meet as well as a birthday meet and it was so much fun. We had some bubble tea, took purikura (something that’s now obligatory for a gal meet in my opinion), and then went off to do some karaoke! It was actually really relaxing because before I knew it I had to head home. I wish I could’ve stayed for longer… Stupid trains and their engineering work.

MCM Expo!

Second post in less than a week?! Looks like I’m back in the blogging mood!

Tell a lie; I haven’t actually done anything interesting until recently, hence why I have things to post about…

Last Saturday I went to my first ever MCM Expo event! I had been very ill last week and was so worried that I couldn’t make it, but on the Saturday morning I felt tons better. Lucky or what? So I phoned the ever so gorgeous Charli to tell her that I could actually make it, did my make and hopped onto the train to London! It took me a while to figure out how to get to the Excel Customs House but I followed some other guys who were going there.

I didn’t dress up or cosplay but I so wished I did because I felt slightly out of place. It took me and Charli like nearly two hours to get tickets to go in, but I saw loads of amazing cosplayers! Because there were so many people I unfortunately wasn’t able to take many photos ;_; Here are the
photos I have taken though:

My look! Going really simple w/o contouring because I was all sniffly~

 

Saw this adorable Pikachu in the queue! ^^
ZEROOOOOO! Omfg I love him <3

I also bought tons of sweets from Sushi Noms, a shop run by my friends Alex and Dominic! You should totally check out their webstore, and possibly like their fb page? ;D

After that I went off to go on a date with my beautiful boyfriend, and we had a Wagamama (of course)! We wanted to go to see Skyfall after that but London was so packed that it was impossible D: So we then headed back to my place but Skyfall was fully booked there too! In the end we just stayed at home watching Wall-E and drinking hot chocolate 😛 <3

Sorry for the really short post… My next post will be of my trip to London to meet Charli where I will have loads more photos 😀 So keep your eyes out for it!

Thanks for reading~

 

Outfit Post: Uni Trip in London // 3月31日 //

Lazy makeup is lazy OTL

On Thursday I arranged to go to London for like a “uni trip” because most of us were unable to go on Wednesday ’cause of our deadline, so we visited Somerset house for an exhibition called “Pick Me Up”. They had loads of pretty weird illustrations there~

Before that, we decided to go to Nandos instead of the usual Mcdonalds ’cause a) that food is skanky and b) we wanted to try something different! I’ve never been there before so it was something new for me ^^

They had this weird thing up on their wall… Didn’t want to touch it incase I got stabbed LOLOLOL

Food time! One of my friend’s ordered this dish with houmous (?) so I tried it out.. It was quite yummy! ^^

And this was my main dish! I ordered a Chicken burger with chips at medium chill (if that makes sense? D:) and it was still quite spicy! 😛 I luurved it though~ Was quite expensive which sucks ><

After some food time we went to Somerset house, and this is what it looked like! When I was last here the lawn was replaced by an ice rink (as it was around Xmas that I went) so I was kinda surprised… And at first I thought it was real flowers on the field… But they were clay flowers o_O I kid you not, CLAY FLOWERS. Each individual one had been handmade and boy that must’ve taken them ages to do o_O

Inside it was divided into little sections for the different exhibitions, and the one we needed to go to was on the other side~ I’ve got tons of illustration piccies, but I’d prefer to display this all on my blog art which I have just started! (Well, just started to use :P) But I’ll give you a sneak peek of some of my faves ^^ I wrote the artist name’s by them ^^

I think I’ve found a style that I love! But I just can’t describe what kinda style this is o_O 

Just another photo of me tehe ;D 

Why do I look so moody? D:

I just put my hair up into a ponytail because I’m a lazy git I didn’t have time to style it or anything :/ Lately I’ve been so lazy with my hair, only straightening when I doll up… And I kinda miss the days when I curl it and whatnot >< But what’s the point when I never go out? When there’s never an occasion to doll up properly? :/ Argh D: What do you guys normally do about this? 

That’s all for now~

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.
