Blippo Surprise Kawaii Bag and Giveaway

Blippo Surprise Kawaii Bag and Giveaway

Blippo surprise kawaii bag

Isn’t life so much better when you receive cute things? That’s how I felt when ‘Blippo Surprise Kawaii Bag‘* turned up on my doorstep, and I just couldn’t wait to show you all what I got. Unlike their Kawaii Box, this bag doesn’t involve any subscribing which is great for people like me who don’t really want regular boxes, but who loves treating themselves to kawaii goodies every now and then. Blippo has also been very lovely and has given me another bag to give away, so please scroll down to the bottom of this post to enter!

In the meantime, let’s have a look at what was in my lucky pack (also known as fukubukuro in Japan)…

Creating Memories with Printiki

Creating Memories with Printiki

You’d think that after two years of moving house that I would have some wall art, but noooope. I just never had the time to and instead just shared photos on Instagram. But I really miss printing out photos like my parents did back in the day, so when Printiki* sent over a message asking if I’d like to print out some photos with them I was like, “HELL YES”. It actually took me longer to pick my photos than it did to process my whole order, and within a few days my package arrived neatly on my doorstep.

Summertime Dreaming

I got this Liz Lisa dress from Kawaii Gyaru Shop* late last year as a little ‘welcome’ gift to when summer finally comes around. I waited for what seemed like ages, and the weather slowly began to pick up but it still wasn’t warm enough until finally we hit the end of May and it was time to wear it. It was Sod’s Law that I began to notice things that I would’ve changed in this outfit; like the fact I had a hair bobble on my wrist instead of pearl bracelets, and that this outfit would probably look super cute with a boat hat and with my hair in plaits instead of waves. I think it’s generally the life of a fashion blogger to notice these things, but at least I’ll be more prepared when I wear this again in future!

I don’t care what anyone else says, they can make as many Harry Potter related films as they want and I’ll be happy. Who cares if it’s a money-making-machine? J.K Rowling is as magical as her books, I adore the world of witches and wizards, so any excuse to be absorbed into it is good for me. Reading Harry Potter is just perfect for winter – I can snuggle up in bed with a cup of hot chocolate and I’m satisfied. It’s a bonus if I can do that in front of a toasty fire, but seeing as I don’t have one… hot chocolate will do.

Kawaii Box Review and Giveaway!

“Life is like a box of kawaii goodies… You never know what you gonna’ get” is what sprung to mind when Kawaii Box landed on my doorstep. A couple of weeks prior to this event, they had reached out to me to do a sponsored review for them, and how could I resist? Get cute stuff in the post? Why not! Fast forward to the time when it came to unravelling the goodies, I can happily say that I am completely satisfied. The service was amazing, the box was cute, the stuff in the box was also cute… Need I say more?

It’s amazing how your clothes can affect your mental and physical state; as soon as I put on a cute dress I suddenly feel very positive and princess-y, and that’s exactly how I felt when I put on my new Liz Lisa dress from Kawaii Gyaru Shop*. Gosh I can’t tell you how in awe I am of it – I mean, look at that print! Let’s all just take a moment to appreciate how beautiful it is.

All of my Liz Lisa is beautiful but this one has by far topped it. Sorry, my other Liz Lisa clothes, but it looks like I’m going to try and wear this as many times as I can. Luckily it’s been getting so hot in the UK so hopefully that will happen!

One of my best friend’s, Amy, was having a birthday tea party and I just couldn’t resist wearing this dress. I mean come on, a tea party, you can’t get anymore princess-y than that. I kept my fingers crossed that it wouldn’t rain and luckily it didn’t, and I had such a great day. We drank tea, ate scones with jam and cream, and took lots of photos! I actually prefer these kind of gatherings to the partying type – I just get so exhausted with all that drinking that I’ll only last an hour at a nightclub. Oops.

It feels like ages since I had the chance to relax. Life has been hectic lately and I can feel myself running into exhaustion because I just can’t stop working. Even outside of work I find myself drawing for my 100 day project and I’m worried that I’ll get ill again from overworking. I’m stuck in that mindset that if I don’t do work than I’m wasting my time. It really sucks but I’m trying to relax by taking bubble baths and the like, but it’s not working…

Hopefully I can find a method soon! Does anyone have anything they could recommend?

Until next Sunday ♡

Kawaii Gyaru Shop Review: Lace & Ribbons

Kawaii Gyaru Shop Review: Lace & Ribbons

liz lisa, himekaji, winter

I can finally say that I’m now a himekaji gyaru. It sounds weird saying it like that – himekaji gyaru, it doesn’t really flow well but then again just saying “himekaji” sounds weird too. Like himekaji what, exactly? Oh well what I want to say is that I’ve finally accepted that himekaji might just be the style I’m looking for. It’s perfect for going out with friends and even for work which is all I seem to do these days!

But himekaji is still quite difficult for me in winter, so Stephanie suggested I try out this gorgeous red knit! I was going to go ahead with that when my eyes clapped on this equally gorgeous blouse. A couple of weeks later they arrived on my doorstep (you probably recognise these babies in my haul post). I swear it feels like Christmas every time I open a package – especially when I know there’s Liz Lisa inside. I couldn’t wait to wear everything!

First Impressions
Everything was packed neatly and she had even thrown in a pair of over-the-knee socks (pictured in my haul post) as well as a My Melody plushie which was really nice of her! The sweater was quite bulky but oh so soft, and the lace top that came with it was pretty. I was a bit worried as I’m not really into wearing lace without something underneath as my skin could get a bit irritated by it, so I made note of it for when I do wear it.
The blouse was beautiful but looked quite short – the lace part goes down to my waist where it is then just a layer of chiffon, so it might not be suitable to wear right now. It looks easy to wear though as it’s quite stretchy and very soft – I could probably bundle this up and it wouldn’t ruin it.

01 | The Red Knit

Oh my gosh it was SO WARM. It was perfect because it’s been quite cold over here in England and all I needed to wear was the lace vest that came with it underneath and I was fine. Normally my skin would get irritated if I don’t wear long sleeves but this one was okay – the knit was surprisingly soft. I just love the lace and ribbon details on the side and did I mention that it came with a lace vest? (We’re pretty much getting two items for one…) I’ve worn this a few times since Valentine’s day and I would definitely recommend it to anyone who’s battling those cold winter seasons. They also come in different colours which is amazing!

02 | The Floral Blouse
It took me a while to actually wear this blouse because it’s not really the right weather for it, so I waited until I went shopping with my friend Lee and I was right – it is still a bit too cold to wear it so I paired it with my white fluffy hoodie. My stomach kept getting cold because of the thinner material, so this blouse is definitely for those warm winter days. The sleeves also come up a bit short but not too short that I felt stupid which I think was helped by the fact that they were in the thinner material. Thank goodness for the elasticated cuffs! Nevertheless it is super cute. I just love the peter pan collar and the floral details on the blouse.

That’s all for now cuties! I hope you liked this post and that it fed your Liz Lisa-needs haha. Don’t forget to check out Kawaii Gyaru Shop for more awesome Liz Lisa (and many more brands!) and use my code LIZBEE if anything takes your fancy. Go on, treat yo’self.

Kawaii Gyaru Shop Review: Liz Lisa Winter Florals

Kawaii Gyaru Shop Review: Liz Lisa Winter Florals

himekaji, liz lisa, kawaii gyaru shop

Did you know that Liz Lisa was the first brand I fell in love with, when I first found out about gyaru? It started when I found a picture of Yui Kanno wearing it for a winter collection (I can’t remember which year) and from then on I was asking around to see if I can buy anything. Back then it was really hard to get branded items, unless you got it second hand from a friend, and I didn’t really have a job because I was too young so my chances of having Liz Lisa were slipping… To all newbie gals – you are incredibly lucky that there are now more options to get branded items, for some of us it was a luxury and a 1/1000000 chance. Thank goodness for shops like Kawaii Gyaru Shop*! I don’t know what to do without it

I’m still slowly building my Liz Lisa wardrobe but one of my goals next year is to wear more of it. I think it’s because it’s so different to my usual agejo style that I can’t seem to get enough of it! My first stage is to be able to wear it in winter, and when Steph suggested this fleece Liz Lisa dress I fell in love. Within a couple of weeks it arrived on my doorstep and I couldn’t wait to try it on! I also received some cute Christmas cat tights which I took a picture of in my previous post.

I want to incorporate more colours into my wardrobe (as it’s mainly black and pink), so I took the plunge and I’m trying out colours that I haven’t really worn before!

Petite Cherry Review

Petite Cherry Review

I’m doing something a little bit different today by reviewing some cute lingerie from Petite Cherry (formerly known as Kaurls Laurel). I’ve got a really soft spot for cute lingerie so when I had a loook at the site I was nearly having a heart attack by how pretty everything was! The models were drop-dead gorgeous too tehe. It was so hard to choose which pair I wanted, but in the end I chose this gorgeous pink set that I just couldn’t take my eyes off it.
