Getting there, soldiering on.

Still on a semi-hiatus~

I decided to take down my previous post because I just realised how personal it was; I do love you, my dear readers, but the day after when I saw the post it actually affected me and made me feel a lot worse… I’d like to thank all of those wonderful people who made comments on that post; it seriously does mean a lot.

I’m currently staying at my parents’ house for a couple of weeks until everything is sorted, although because of the circumstances I didn’t really bring everything I needed with me. Like warm clothes, for example. Boy it’s getting cold now! 

I’m actually really excited for winter which is a first because I always hated it. I guess it’s because I’m looking forward to finally having hot chocolate, snuggling in front of the fire, and wearing big comfy ol’ jumpers! Thing is though, I’m totally unprepared for it.

So me, K and my mum went shopping to get some supplies, and these are what I bought~

Found this on the sales rack! Been reduced by 50% and seeing as it was the
 only one left in my size… Might as well!
A much-needed winter coat!
And, of course, some boots!

And now for a MA*RS skirt that my lovely boyfriend bought for me! I had been dying to buy this skirt for ages, and wasn’t going to buy it at all until he was like, “I’ll buy it for you!” And of course I had to say yes to that! 

Also, now that the first issue of Gal VIP has been released, I am “allowed” to show you some post-production photos! :3 I have two sets as one of them was for the cover shoot where I worked with Amelie~ <3

And let’s end this post with a lovely cuppa’ hot chocolate that K made me! :3~

Shooting Time! Well, not that kind of shooting…

First Issue of Gal VIP has been released!

My day with Amelie~ // 4月4日 //

Today I visited Amelie in Birmingham! It had been ages since I saw her and I really missed her ;_; I had all these ideas for my hair and make and had a pretty decent but then-
It snowed -_-
It was so annoying because I was planning on wearing shorts but as soon as I looked outside I knew it wasn’t gonna’ happen >< luckily I packed some jeans but it didn’t have the same effect D: I didn’t bother doing my hair in the end because of the snow and it’ll be ruined within a second :/

This was my look~

Anyways, so I met Amelie at 2 and then we headed for some shopping! She bought this top and we thought that it looked a bit like the stuff worn in Soul Sister~ I am really liking the stuff worn in that mag recently… Trouble is, I haven’t gotten any tracksuits that look pretty or anything D: Don’t really want the plain kind that chavs wear ><
We then headed to Forever21! We don’t have one down in Kent and the nearest one is in London which is waaay too busy D: So, as you might’ve guessed, I really really really looked forward to it!

Our usual Forever21 picture! Argh I look so herp derp 😛

Amelie found this amazing camouflage skirt, and I noticed the label… And it said it was £2.49 o_O £2.49?! It was too good for that price! So we bought it 😛 When we got to the till the guy said that it was supposed to be £12.49 but whoever did it wrote it wrong 😛 Crazy! But we managed to get it for £2.49 anyways.

Me trying it out. Don’t I look so cool ;D Not like the clothes clash or anything…

Wagamama was a must as Amelie was hungry and I wanted some deep fried chilli squid *_* We talked about anything and everything! I really missed her <3

Me and Amelie! She’s so cuuute~

I wanted to go to a Chinese supermarket to find some Sake and dashi, as well as mirin as I wanted to try cooking some Japanese, Chinese and Korean food! ^^ A friend of mine showed me some amazing videos on YouTube that I wanna try out :3 But yeah. I managed to find some sake ^^ We popped over to the next shop and I found some amazingly-decorated iPhone 4 cases!

How the hell do you use these cases? o_O Especially that Hello Kitty one…

I found these glasses there as well! And surprised Amelie with them lolololol 😛

Don’t I look so cool brah.

We went back to Forever21 as I found these pair of shorts that I LOVED (they were acid-washed, distressed, and had studs *_*) but the only one that was left was way too big ;_; So had to leave it in the end :/ It sucks so much! I even tried looking online but I can’t find it :/

I decided to buy the jacket in the end 😛 I mean, it was exactly expensive sooooo~ Yeah! Just gotta’ think of what to wear in the end 😛

This is the pictures of my buys <3 Sorry it’s so crap, my lighting isn’t great D:

And with this jacket, me, Amelie and Alice are now skanky jacket triplets lolololol.

That’s all for now! I had an amazing time with her~ Kinda gonna’ miss her now though as I won’t be seeing her for a while ;_;

London Fail & Brighton Hail

On Wednesday I went to London with the lovely boyf seeing as he was staying round mine until New Years! >3< It was really a last minute decision (again) so we were REALLY unorganised, lawls. Next time we decided that we’ll do some research beforehand ’cause we didn’t want to wander aimlessly for hours like we did this time.
Idk, I guess it’s because I really didn’t know where to go… All I wanted to do was to take purikura, and the rest was just improvised 😛 But we went to the Japan Centre (and I didn’t get Ageha as it look too similar to last month’s) and then to Oxford Street and ZOMG IT WAS SO BUSY! Srsly, couldn’t walk anywhere without being stopped by the person in front ;_; Guess that’s London for ya…

I didn’t really buy anything from London apart from the purse (oh how lame) because a) I didn’t really want to spend loads of money and b) I couldn’t find the stuff I wanted to buy! How annoying! But still, it was nice to explore around London a bit ^^

Here’s our purikura!~

And now for some pictures of my look :3

Did a silly pose tehehehe >:]

Close-up of my eye-make~

Jacket from New Look, Jumper from Select, 

New Look vest, Quiz jeans, Red London boots.

Me and my bby <3

Okay I know that this is a MEGA-HUGE-POST but I have to include a lil’ section about my time in Brighton today! It was – yet again – a last minute decision, and to make things even better we met up with the lovely Emilie :3 I was so excited to meet her >///< She is such a sweet gal! ^^
But, unfortunately, it was pissing it down with rain o_e
So it wasn’t as nice to go shopping in Brighton as it would’ve been if it were sunny, but it was still lovely to finally see the sea! ^^ Although it was so so cold ;_;


Some guys were crazy enough to actually jump into the sea o_O

Me and Emilie! <3 I didn’t have any makeup on as my eye messed up yesterday, again ;_; Was such a shame ’cause I really wanted to doll up and shizz D: But yeah… I should probably go to the doctors or something >_<“

My gets for today! Bought more than I did in London LOLOLOL.

Also, I’m gonna’ be hosting a giveaway sometime next year! Think I might host it when I get to 350 or something followers~ ^^


Just to let you know that you are all so beautiful, and good luck on 2012! ^^

(I was about to put this message on another post but I cba, lawls)

(Finally) Getting into the Xmas mood!

So today I’m back to meet my family & friends, and of course my lovely boyf! >//< It’s been so long since I’ve last visited… Well, it felt like it anyways 😛

I’ve been feelin’ more Xmassy now that I’ve given everyone their pressies and sent off some cards! I’ve also received some which was awhsum >//< I really didn’t expect any seeing as I moved away and shizz… So I’m really grateful! ;_;

When I was here last time (about 3 weeks ago? Something like that?) I decorated the family Xmas tree with le boyf <3, my sis & a family friend!

We made sure that it had A LOT of decorations lololol.

And this was my look for that day! I know it’s such a delay to post this, but I wanted to include it anyways seeing as it was just lying around on my phone~ Went for a really simple look ^^ So not very Gyaru I suppose 😛

And then I went back to my place and decided to decorate my own room! ^^ Although I didn’t have very many decorations at all ;_; So me and my housemate went to do some Xmas shopping ^^

My lil’ xmas tree! I didn’t really have any space in my room so I had a clear some space on my desk~ My theme was blue and silver! My two favourite colours ^^

And I decorated my chest of drawers with some tinsel! ^^ Just to make the room more Xmas-y 😀

The next Xmas-y thing that I did was attend a Xmas meal with my work people~ We went to this pub and the food was gorgeous (although the veg was rock solid) :/ I had a wonderful time ^^

I had Prawn Cocktail for my starter! It was delicious *_*

And then the good ol’ turkey for my mains~

And a chocolate pudding! Idk why they use a massive plate for it >_>

Because it was my manager’s birthday we had some birthday cake too ^^

I was so full up after it all! o_O

Anyways, I suppose that’s all I have to say for now 😛 So I’ll wish you all a Merry Xmas and a Wonderful New Year! ^^

Maidstone with Stef

Zomg this post is so late… Like, 3 weeks late? But there’s a valid reason for it and that is that I never really thought of posting about this 😛

Basically I was getting bored of just staying in Kent all of the time so I decided to go with Stef when he came down for the weekend to go to Maidstone! It was mainly because that was the nearest place that had Primark (lol) and it was the closest city to where I’m currently living.

The only problem that I had was that my eye was still messed up so I couldn’t do my make, and so I focused on my coord ^^

I realised that when I wanted to take a picture of my coord that a) I had kinda dirty boots and b) my carpet was white. So I went along with Rika’s (is her name Rika? Idk D: ) idea of putting tissues under her feet but I put paper there instead. It was a pretty good idea! ^^

Yummy hot chocolate at Cafe Nero! *_*

I ripped my old jeans to create this tehehe~ 

My buys~ This was a recent-ish picture so it includes what I bought when I went to London last week <3

I think I might also change the way I blog and do it more frequently! But Idk yet 😛 Tehe~ 

That’s all for now ^^
