The Introverted Gyaru

the introverted gyaru

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.

Arrr Me Hearties~ Shopping with Pixie!

Hey everyone! How’re you today?

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.

ponytail extension / floral sweater / cute red dress / cute bowknot casual platforms / jaquard white tights / high-waisted skirt / pink lace choker / princess pearl bow necklace / bow hairclip /

That’s all for now! Until next week. Have a great weekend

Merry Xmas Everyone!

I shouldn’t be writing this post right now because I should be helping my mum out with the Xmas dinner but… I WANTED TO GIVE YOU ALL MY LOVE and hope that y’all have a wonderful Xmas! 😀

Here’s me in my onesie; I shall write a better post later on when I have time ^^

I love you all so very much <3 And never take things for granted, especially the ones you love <3

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!

I’m Singing Along Like There’s No Tomorrow

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
belt, Reveal shorts, Select tights, Dorothy Perkins boots
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 ^^

Thanks for reading!

 

Behind Enemy Lines

Just a short post of my look! It was the first time I had dolled up in over a month, so I though it deserved to be shown on this blog.

I’m so sorry that I haven’t really been updating as frequently as before; I’m still on my semi-hiatus because I know that as soon as I say “I’m back!” I’ll disappear for like 2 weeks and then would be all apologetic saying “I was caught up in something”. So for now I’ll just stick with my semi-hiatus mode.

I swear I’m beginning to love this cardi <3
New Look cardi, Primark top, New Look jeans,
Muse necklace, Primark socks & Dorothy Perkins’ boots

I actually love oraora. I’m not kidding. I actually really want to try out the style a lot more and try out different makeup styles ~ So this is more of a sweet/oraora look. Next time I would try adding some black for that beautiful smokiness. 

Anyway, I have quite a fair amount of stuff to blog about in the upcoming weeks but I’m going to take my time posting them. That’s all for today I guess! Until next time (although I don’t know when ;_;). I love you all <3 

Oraora!

 

I’m not supposed to be blogging right now as I’m in the middle of doing uni work, but I’ve just got told that I’m going to have a (yet again) really early shift at work tomorrow so I might as well do it now rather than in the evening where I stay up late just to get everything right OTL

Lately I’ve been really into the oraora/96gal/tsuyome scene, and even though I don’t have a heavy tan I still admire the dramatic hair and makeup! So I wanted to try out oraora again, and the main reason being was that I received my new Listen Flavour hoodie (which is now one of my favourite items of clothing). I needed to have a bit of “me” time anyway because of being overloaded with shifts & uni work.

 

 

full shot of my outfit~

 

I’m wearing my deliciously-awesome new thigh high boots that Stef bought me from my birthday. Unfortunately when I started walking I realised that the top “flapped about” a bit ;_; Damn. Sucks so much D: Going to try and find a way to stop that from happening but for now it’s only good for photos… Never felt so bad in my life ;_; ’cause THEY ARE SO PRETTY D:

My eyemake; still settling for the gold/black look… Oh well!

Wearing my new lens too ;D Going to be posting up a review soon!

So keep an eye out for it! ;D

 

This looks was… Different, to what I normally do. I normally go for the cute/elegant appearance but this time it was totally badass and rebellious. When I walked to work to get some stuff (as I work in a lil’ supermarket) one of my work colleagues didn’t know it was me! He was just chatting away over the little stall to me and then when I walked out to buy the stuff he was like, “Whao I didn’t recognise you there!” But yeah 😛 I really do like this look and shall definitely be doing it again!

EURGH SORRY FOR THE PHOTOSPAM OF MY FACE *shot*

Last question of the day before I go: What time is it where you’re at? I love seeing how people all over the world read my blog, and the time difference between us! Right now it’s 14.55 for me ^^

Adios, amigos! Gotta’ get packing for tomorrow and carry on doing uni work. Love you all!

 

Sweet dreams (are made of this)

Hey readers!

My brain is so dead right now because, as usual, I just have a huge list of all of the blogposts that I should’ve posted weeks before but I haven’t. I was supposed to make a birthday post last week but… I’ll just leave that for now. 

The reason why I’m doing this post first before my birthday post is that it’s linked to my previous one, where I did a review on Soul Sister magazine. Ever since I read that magazine I’m re-inspired to try out oraora and ane gal, and on the day that I planned on doing the vlog I dressed up in this style.

My make~ I’m trying to wear these lens more often because they’re gonna’ run out soon ;_; 

My coord for that day! It was actually warm enough for me to wear something like this for once. Damn you English summer! We used to have really really hot summers but this year it’s just crap D: 

This was actually my first time wearing that top despite me having it for at least a year OTL. I should really wear my old clothes more often! Or at least do a wardrobe clean out. 

Sorry that this is a fairly short post… I’m just so tired right now. Should probably sleep more. Well that’s all for now!

The Warmth of the Sun

After having my nap when I returned from Brighton my landlord was hosting a barbecue and invited me, so I just quickly slapped on my lens and some makeup as his friends were already there and I didn’t want to be rude in not saying hi.
I wanted to do like rows that I see on some oraora gals and really liked this tutorial on Rii’s blog (which you can see here) so decided to just watch the part where she did the rows as my hair was already wavy. I might actually attempt to do it properly next time because I really liked how she did some flicks as well.

So onto the photos!

Argh ignore the glue it went everywhere D:
