Lockdown Looks

Lockdown Looks

Kind of weird but… I have been dressing up a lot more since lockdown happened. I guess it’s mainly because I’m just sitting around in the house with nothing better to do, and that the weather can’t really dictate what to wear because, erm, I’m not going outside. So I could pretty much wear whatever I wanted without limitations! Here are some of my favourite lockdown looks.

How to Be Positive Without Being Fake

How to Be Positive Without Being Fake

positivity, blogger, jfashion blogger, gyaru blogger

How many times a day do you see things like “good vibes only” or “always look on the bright side of life?” I know I’m not the only one who said at least 5 times. Being positive is pretty much shoved down our throats and there’s always one inspirational post displayed on social media every day that the whole meaning of being positive is lost. Instead we find ourselves putting on a fake smile and pretending to be positive without actually feeling positive.

One Item Five Ways: Acid-Washed Jeans

One Item Five Ways: Acid-Washed Jeans

Acid-washed jeans are the best things to jazz up a simple outfit; every time I feel like I’m in a slump I just slip on a pair of these babies and it instantly improves my mood. I haven’t been wearing it lately because it’s been unusually hot in the U.K. (the horror) but I just can’t wait for it to get a little cooler so that I can whack them on!

So while I patiently wait for that day to come I have decided that it was time to do another one of my “One Item Five Ways” posts. I really look forward to doing these, and I guess I could class them as a series now! If there’s anything you would like to see me experiment with then please let me know in the comments below.

Dinner Dates & Late Night Parties!

Dinner Dates & Late Night Parties!

Hey guys! How are you?

I’ve got some really, really good news… My eye has healed! I’ve never been so happy about something like that in my whole life. I’m still going to be very careful with it and keep it moisturised, but now I can finally put makeup on it! Here are a few agejo coords from last weekend~

♡ Queen of Hearts

This is my look for when I went out for a birthday party! I wore my new MA*RS set! I think it’s a replica because although I think it’s MA*RS the label says Princess Melody ^^” But that’s okay, it was still super cute!

Sorry for the low quality pictures… Was in such a rush ;_; And lighting is so bad in my room. 

Set: MA*RS Replica / Belt: MA*RS / Acc: New Look & Muse / Socks: Primark / Heels: Dorothy Perkins

I put more of a focus on hair accessories this time because I always seem to lack in that department. I just bought these roses the day before and oh my gosh I am in love with the purple colour! I was in a hurry that I couldn’t take a decent photo of it, and my waves died after a work so it wasn’t quite as wavy as I wanted it to be.

Better picture of the hairstyle~ Eurgh can’t believe how fast my waves died! So annoying!
Made some nails to go with my new outfit! (I actually took this photo the next day tehehe~)

We ended up being late to the party but luckily the birthday girl was okay with that as more people started turning up around the same time we did!
Phew! I had so much fun. They played a lot of ’80s music which I loved and I danced lots and lots! It’s a shame that I didn’t take any photos… But it was pretty dark so you probably wouldn’t see anything anyway ^^”

Me and my boyfriend after the party We’re both idiots but it’s okay, we’re cool with it.

Casual Brunch Date ♡

The next day me & my boyfriend decided to go out to Wagamama for some brunch! It’s the first time we’ve been there where we didn’t order a main… It felt kind of weird.

Please ignore my no-makeup face… I was still kinda’ sleepy tehehe.

Yummy food!

♡ Thai Curry Date

In the evening we tried out a local thai restaurant and oh my gosh it was one of the best decisions we ever had! The food and atmosphere was amazing… I just had to take some photos for you all.

Isn’t it so amazing? I loved the whole atmosphere!

 

And my outfit & makeup! I went for a more onee gyaru look this time~ You might recognise this from my previous post ;D

Guess that’s all for now darlings! I’ll see you all next week Ciao!

The Leopard Dress

 

 

Hey guys! How are you?

I don’t know about you but I’m exhausted; it’s not that I’ve been doing a lot of work in the past week but because I decided to do all of that work in one night. Last night, actually, and it was probably one of the stupidest things I’ve done.

It’s sad that now that I’m back working and doing heaps of uni work that I’m really looking forward to my next break. I’ve got a party to go to sometime in March so I’ve been digging through my wardrobe and found this leopard print dress. I haven’t actually worn it before which is crazy because it’s gorgeous.

I paired this dress with some heels that my sister bought for me from New Look – something else I’ve not yet worn because of this stupid weather – and some gold jewellery (you can get similar boots here). I think I might just wear this for the party! The dress is made from a sort-of sweater/jumper material so I don’t really need to wear anything extra, especially because it’s got long sleeves. I probably would wear tights though in the evening just in case…

 

Dress: Persunmall / Shoe Boots: (similar) New Look / Bag: Clarks / Jewellery: Muse

I think I’ve fallen in love with this dress. It’s definitely going to keep me warm, and because of the design at the front and back it gives me the illusion of having lovely curves! I’m really skinny so finding something that makes me look like I have curves is pretty difficult.

The only thing I would say about this dress is that it’s a tiny bit too short, so I’d definitely recommend wearing shorts underneath just in case! 

So what do you normally wear on nights out? I’m still trying to think of other possibilities, but I’m not too sure whether I’d wear any brands (like MA*RS) when going out drinking.

Before I go: thank you very much to those who took part in my poll! The results were quite interesting and it seems that people still want to see more outfit & makeup posts. I guess that this post is the first of many in future!

Anyway, that’s all for now. I hope you have a good rest of the weekend! xx

Many thanks to Persunmall for sponsoring me with this dress!

 

See Ya’ Later, Alligator

See Ya’ Later, Alligator

Hey guys! How is your year so far? Are you having a good year so far? (Or is it too early to say that?)

I did, my year has definitely had a great start… And do you want to know why? It’s because SHERLOCK’S BACK IN TOWN, AWH YIH.

As you may already know, I’m a big fan of Sherlock. As soon as I saw Benedict Cumberbatch’s face on the scream I emitted a little fan-girl scream (surprising my housemate) and continued to do so for about ten minutes or so. I was just so happy to see it back on the screen after goodness knows how long.

But I’m going to stop there because I want this blog to be spoiler-free, but those who have watched it… It was amazing, wasn’t it?!

My New Years Eve didn’t, however, feel much like New Years Eve and it’s probably because it as the first time I didn’t see my family nor boyfriend at all. Living away from home does make things difficult, but it only makes me look forward to going home even more! Can’t wait until all of my uni assignments are done. Luckily I was invited to go out to the pub with my housemate and I went out in ane gal, which isn’t what I usually do, so my makeup was very agejo inspired. I was originally going to do cornrows on one side but my hair just ended up being so curly that it looked a bit weird.

I wore my favourite jeans going out, and this yumetenbo belt that I haven’t worn in what feels like ages. I really should do oraora/ane gal a lot more.

Hoodie: MA*RS | Vest: Primark | Belt: Yumetenbo | Jeans: Quiz | Boots: Dorothy Perkins

So, yes, 2013: the year of many ups and downs and also of being relatively naughty and spending lots of money on MA*RS. That’s all going to change this year! I’ve promised myself to be a Budget Gal and not spend on over £50 a month (including going out to London), and I’ll be referring back to my points system. I guess that’s resolution number one right there! I wasn’t going to do New Years Resolutions this year but it feels kind of weird not doing them so here’s my list!:

1. Improve on my blogging
2. Work harder on my design work
3. Keep to my gal budget
4. Try out more hairstyles

I’m keeping it really simple this year because otherwise I’d never stick to them. I think I might go into more detail of my goals and inspirations in my next post. What’re your New Years Resolutions? Got many this year?

So that’s all for now! See ya’ later, alligator.

p.s I’m going to be trying new things with each blog post, so please excuse all of the changes being made!

I Live For The Applause

 

So I finally enrolled onto my final year at uni, and I’m kinda’ stressing out about it because I just know that a) my social life is pretty much going to end and b) I’m going to go back to my workaholic self.

But oh wells! I can do it this year! I won’t be a zombie, promise! I’ll be forever fabulous and can get through this stressful year (hopefully).

Because the enrolment wasn’t to start until later I actually managed to have the time to doll up. It’s funny because I wasn’t originally going to doll up, but while I was doing my makeup I thought, “Well I might as well add some contouring… Hmm maybe some eye shadow… But that means I have to put liner and some lashes on…” So I ended up with a made-up face instead of a bare one. Whoops!

I went for the more sophisticated look because I’m hoping to drift into the onee gal scene a bit more for uni and incorporate it into my agejo style. Plus I wanted to try out this new “blazer” I bought from Primark.

Blazer: Primark

The enrolment process was pretty easy, but for the first few hours we talked about our dissertation… And right now I’m stressing and panicking about it because I really don’t know what to write about and it’s due in in January ;_; Guess I won’t be having much of a Xmas then!

But it was lovely to see all of my friends again :3 Some can’t make it onto the final year and I’m going to miss them so much ❤ It’s going to be hectic but we can do it! >//<

Oh and and I finally have my MA*RS bags and purse! They arrived at my boyfriend’s house so he brought them over when he came round to see me after my enrolment. They’re so gorgeous *_* It’s a shame that they haven’t got zips but I still love them ❤ Can’t wait to use them! 

And now that’s it! No more buying brand (she says). Need to save up for uni supplies and getting my portfolio put together!

Eurgh sorry that this is an extremely small post… But I haven’t done an outfit post in ages so I guess you can let me off ;D

Until next time, beautiful readers ❤

 

(Oh and you might’ve realised.. I love using my current favourite songs as some of my blog titles because it makes me happy, tehe).

Testing, Attention Please

Wow this week has been so hectic; I’ve been doing a lot of travelling so haven’t really had a proper lie in at all. But who cares! I have so much to tell you that I’m bubbling in excitement writing this.

First things first, I have a new job! Yes, Lizzie is now working at a clothes store! I feel so much better now because my old job was rather… Well, I got bored, and I really wanted something new with nicer shifts. 

So I applied for a new job and got a job offer straight after the interview! Pretty awesome, right? Yeah I was so so happy that I of course agreed to take the job and I had my first shift last Saturday. The people there were lovely as well, and I felt that I was being a lot more “me”. I guess this is a perfect chance for a whole new start work-wise.

I’ve slowly started getting into dolling up daily again and I must say that it’s been too long. I still get those days where I laze around doing nothing, but I think I’ve finally had enough time to think about my future so I’ve made a little plan on separating my uni life and social life equally and to realise that in the end, my happiness does come first. I want to be able to see my friends and family a lot more this year, and with my new job I think I could make that happen. And the reason for dolling up? I just feel good about myself when I do and make more of an effort to face the day.

But eurgh enough of the rambling, and onto the main part of the post! I’ve started doing gal without lens again because I’m on my final pair. Yes, it’s so heartbreaking… My black lens have finally ran it’s course ;_; So all I have left are my gold lens!

I think doing gal without lens is a great way to focus more on makeup on hair but as you can see I only had time to straighten my hair this time. 

My look just before I headed off to uni!

I think that my life is finally sorting itself out and I’ve been following a schedule on what time to wake up and go to sleep. It’s been making my life so much easier and I’ve been getting the sleep needed to keep me going. Okay so I have had some nights where I stayed up late but I’ve been doing a lot better than usual!

Blouse, Vest & Jeans: New Look
Heels: Dorothy Perkins
Jewellery: eBay

I’ve also been good when it comes to spending as well… And this is my most recent item I bought. It was waiting for me on my doorstep when returning home from uni so it made my day a whole lot better!

So I just tried it on really quickly~ Although now I really can’t wait for it to be summer so I could actually wear it properly *_*

So I guess that’s all for today! Just thought I’d give you all an update on the recent goings-on. I hope you’re all having a lovely week so far, and that you’ve got much planned for the weekend!

I Feel Like A Chameleon; My Gyaru Wardrobe

I Feel Like A Chameleon; My Gyaru Wardrobe

I’m still not sure where I’m heading style-wise, and when a friend asked which style I would like to go for I replied: I’m a bit of a chameleon when it comes to gyaru; I tend to like and wear all styles.”

And it’s true; I really do like all of the substyles of gyaru that I just can’t stick to one! It’s a bit annoying though because then I’m spending loads of money on different kind of clothes rather than saving up and buying only those that fit the substyle that I’m in. Guess I can’t really help it.

But I need to stop buying clothes! It’s crazy how much I lurk on gyaru sales to find items that I want to get my hands on even though I really shouldn’t be spending. To help myself out a little bit I went along and gathered all of the clothes that I thought were gyaru-suitable and have taken pictures to show y’all 

my gyaru wardrobe!

Although most of these are brand items, I have thrown in some non-brand stuff like clothes from New Look, Miss Selfridge etc. Unfortunately I have missed quite a lot of clothes so I think that I shall do another post!

This has kept me motivated in staying gyaru and just trudge on, even through the rough patch that I’m going through.

See ya’ next time I guess!

Girl’s Night Out

On Saturday – nearly a week ago – I arranged to hang out with a couple of my friends as it had been forever since I last saw them. One of my friends came round to mine to get all dolled up and have Chinese before heading off into town~

Photo when I got back… No wonder it’s blurry!

One of the main reasons of us going to town was because there was this live music thing going on. It was pretty crowded and freezing so after having a drink (or two in E’s case) we headed over to this other place where they were playing live indie-rock music. At the end we all agreed that the music was vair depressing, but oh wells! It was good to just see them again.

The Pimm’s drink I had! Wow it was so delicious and magical.

I can’t really write more on the matter as we didn’t stay out for long; J had to drive back quite far to get home, and I couldn’t be bothered to spend £100 or something ridiculous on drinks lololol. I did manage to get rather tipsy though! So tipsy that I actually made a vlog (which you can view here). CROAKY VOICE AND SHIZZ FTW!

Whoops.

I guess that’s all I have to write today, I’m sorry for such a short post and not showing a lot of pictures! Tbh I didn’t really take many as I felt awkward taking photos of my look when J was round (didn’t wanna’ be a poser tehehehe~) 

Until the next post!
