It’s a strange concept, isn’t it, the thought of an introverted gyaru? Gyaru are always portrayed as out-going and fun-loving in the media, but I’m so far away from that. It used to get me down quite a lot as I felt that my introverted nature meant that I wasn’t a “real gyaru”, but the older I got the less I cared. I just preferred to be in the comfort of my home with my husband and my cat than out partying, it’s as simple as that.
On Wednesday I met up with my bby Pixie! It has been so long since I last saw her – like, May? – and I’ve missed her so much!
We decided to meet up early but I woke up to my eye being as swollen as ever! ;_; I knew I shouldn’t have rubbed it when I was tired the previous night… Luckily I bought a medical eye patch to cover it because there was no way that I wasn’t going to wear makeup.
I wish I realised just how big the eye patch was before I was doing my makeup… Because when I had finished and unwrapped it from its packaging I was starting to panic. It was huge! Like it covered all of my face! I had to sew it in half and work my magic so that I could actually see out of the other eye. But it was okay in the end and I started to feel better about it ^^
I went for a preppy d.i.a look and wore this shirt that I’ve had for ages but never really wore it. I need to wear it more often because it’s super pretty!
Booo this sucks ;_;
While I was getting ready I took advantage of my situation and snapped a make/no-make face shot! Isn’t gyaru makeup so amazing? What a difference it makes! *3*
I was in a rush so I wasn’t able to take a decent outfit picture, so a mirror shot would have to do!
Pixie took me to a nice Japanese restaurant down in . I was adventurous and tried out new dishes! I wasn’t too keen on the onigiri though… At least I now know what it tastes like, and can avoid it in future. The teriyaki beef was delicious though but I forgot to take a photo of it! ;_;
Selfies at the restaurant tehehe~ Pixie is so cute!
After our meal Pixie presented me with a little surprise: a seifuku set from her store Pixie Bunny! Oh my gosh I fell in love with it, the colour is absolutely beautiful! I’ve always wanted to do kogal again and the colour is so beautiful! Thank you so much cutie <3
Then we did some shopping! I was silently weeping because I found a really pretty coat in Miss Selfridge but it was £84 and my student discount expired the previous day. D’oh! But I did manage to buy some posh lipstick from Illamasqua. It’s not a shade that I’m used to but I liked it!
After that we headed home~ We’ve already arranged our next meet and I can’t wait to see her again! ♡
Oh and before I go… Pixie has brought out the love for himekaji in me again >///< I really want to have another go at it but I haven’t got the autumn wardrobe for it apart from the brown floral dress from Kawaii Gyaru Shop. It’s so sad ;_; So I’ve made a little himekaji wishlist of the things that would go with what I already have, as I need to save money at the same time. Most of these items were relatively cheap!
To also help me build my himekaji wardrobe slowly I’m going back by a few years and going to start the “points system” so that I’m working to gain points/goodies! I wrote about it in a post here.
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.
Okay now that I haven’t met up with anyone I actually have nothing to write about.
Well, that’s a lie really, because I’m writing a blog post right now… But it’s only because I am taking a break from the endless uni work that has been given to me to complete in a measly four days. I’m quite excited about this project to be honest as I’ve been told to create a logo, letterhead, business card and compliment slip.
But enough about uni work because I’m just so tired of it right now!
What I want to blog about today is my look for today. Like I said before I had been doing tons of uni work and normal work so I’ve been lazy and wore no makeup for a week. Seems like an age to me! I’ve been listening to a lot of Maroon 5 hence my choice of title~ It’s from the song Ladykiller which is just so awesome.
Real MA*RS jumper, New Look Vest, Julia Boutique

Might not use Princess Eye anymore… They’re so fragile and annoying ><
I would also like to announce that I’ll be posting more regularly, and shall have fixed days! I shall let you all know what days I’ll be blogging on once I’ve figured it out ^^
