Kawaii Gyaru Shop Review: Liz Lisa Sailor Collar Set

Kawaii Gyaru Shop Review: Liz Lisa Sailor Collar Set

Hey cuties! How are you today? I’m so happy because my Liz Lisa set from Kawaii Gyaru Shop arrived the other day! I’ve been eying it up for a while, so couldn’t hold back from opening it as soon as it came through the door. I wasn’t disappointed; it is as gorgeous as it looks in photos, perhaps even more beautiful!

So I got everything planned for the day where I can take photos wearing it, I even decided what kind of makeup and hair stye I wanted to do until I woke up that morning and found myself with a puffy left eye. Not cool.

That wasn’t going to stop me though! Et voila, here are my photos!

A Touch of Magic!

A Touch of Magic!

Hey cuties! How are you today? ♡

I went to see Cinderella with a friend last weekend! I was supposed to see it ages ago but I had to push back my plans because I was ill ;_; So it gave me something to look forward to!

I decided to wear something a bit more ‘princess-y’, and what’s more princess-like than my Liz Lisa set? I’m so happy that I was able to get this from Kawaii Gyaru Shop as they sell out so quickly… I’m hoping to get more Liz Lisa items when it gets warmer. Idk why but I’ve been really digging light, ‘girly’ gyaru looks!

Instead of wearing the whole set I just wore the top and paired it with some light-coloured jeans to make it look more casual. It’s finally starting to get warm enough to wear all of my spring stuff!

I also received my Sailor Moon Selfie Stick from Official Syndrome Store that I won in a giveaway back in February! There were a few complications with shipping (Easter is a b*tch in terms of postage) but I was so happy to receive it in the end. I was so worried that it was going to be lost in the mail again.

As I had an hour or so to spare I decided to have a play around with it. I’m still trying to get to grips with it… I can’t balance anything to save my life! 

I love this selfie stick! It’s going to take me a while to get used to, but it’s so cute! ꒰* ॢꈍ◡ꈍ ॢ꒱.*˚‧♡

After my selfie session I went off to the cinema! Is it me or is it getting more and more expensive to go and watch films nowadays? I easily spent nearly £15 just buying a ticket and some popcorn o_o Such a rip off! But I had a really nice time all the same. I just loved Cinderella’s ball dress, and the prince was played by Richard Madden who I really liked in Game of Thrones. 

That dress *_*

After the cinema I then treated myself to some ice-cream/sundae! I got ‘Chocolate Overload’ and it was delicious *3*

That’s all for today! Have you guys seen Cinderella? I would definitely recommend the film to those
who love Disney! It pretty much stuck to the original storyline, and the
costume design was amazing.

Until next Sunday~

Kawaii Deluxe Review: Ageha Princess Eyes False Lashes

Hey everyone! How’re you?
I can’t believe it’s the second week of February! I’m still thinking that it’s January… It’s crazy! However this means that it’s getting closer and closer to spring which means I will finally be able to wear pretty clothes *_*

I’ve been doing a lot of “sweet” looks recently so when Kawaii Deluxe told me to take my pick from their store, I chose these babies – Ageha Princess Eye! I’ve got tons of dramatic lashes so I wanted to try out something more natural!

Please note that although this is a sponsored review, these thoughts are 100% my own!

The lashes arrived in no more than a week~ this was such a surprise as I was thinking that it would take a lot longer than that. Kawaii Deluxe were definitely ticking boxes so far!
Everything was nicely wrapped and they had even left a note and some sample BB cream. They’re so cute!

Now time for the lashes. After taking a closer look at them I realised that they were a lot less dramatic than I thought. I haven’t actually tried out this style before where the lashes were more clumped together at the ends, so I was bursting to try them on!

ageha princess eyes false lashes

I went for a casual look, and in the end I had to ditch my lower lashes because… Well, you’ll see in the photos.

They were natural, yes, but a bit too natural. Like I said I didn’t need to wear any bottom lashes with these as it wouldn’t balance, so I just added more mascara.
Now them being a bit too natural would be a downfall in normal circumstances but for me, who wanted natural ones, they were perfect. I could get away with wearing these in an office as it was a very subtle effect… But for gyaru? No, these are too natural (unless you were heading down the Popteen route where they’re toning down a lot).

Thinking about offices gave me the idea to try these on with my glasses and viola! They were perfect! I had used a lash curler to make them stand upright a bit more and they barely brushed against my glasses. So for those who want to do the natural look and wear glasses, these lashes are perfect for you!

Now it’s time for the ratings!

Postage & Packaging

Absolutely perfect. Everything was carefully wrapped, and the little note was super cute! Got to give them extra points for shipping everything out really quickly as well.

Customer service

Amazing! Responded to my emails within 24 hours – nice!

Appearance of Lashes

I quite like this style of having the lashes more compact at the ends as it’s perfect for the cat eye effect.

Dramatic-ness

I’m still not too sure about these lashes because they are a bit too natural for me, so it’s a low rating from me. You can barely see them on but I guess this means it’ll be good for school/work.

Usability ♡ 

Very easy to use! Great for everyday wear, too, so bonus points for that!

Overall (For Lashes)
Overall I probably wouldn’t recommend these lashes for those interested in gyaru, but for general “kawaii” style these are great for those who are still at school! The teachers wouldn’t even notice them tehe. It was partly my fault that the lashes have an overall low rating – next time I’ll stick to my dramatic lashes!

Overall (Service)

However I would definitely recommend buying from Kawaii Deluxe; they were incredibly friendly and responded to my emails within the day, and the package didn’t take long to arrive at all! This bumped up the rating a little bit, because like I said I was the one who chose the lashes, and they have an amazing range at their store!

Until next time my cuties~

Kawaii Gyaru Shop Review: Liz Lisa Fairy Tale

Kawaii Gyaru Shop Review: Liz Lisa Fairy Tale

Hey cuties! How are you all?

It’s been so cold over here in the UK! I’m actually finding it quite difficult to write this post because my hands are so cold ;_; But it’s okay, I’ve got some tea to warm me up 😀

Today I want to show you these gorgeous dresses that I got from Kawaii Gyaru Shop! The owner, Stephanie, is a god-send. She knew exactly what I wanted and I can’t thank her enough for her kindness!

The dresses that I’m going to show you are both from the brand Liz Lisa, and as predicted, they are absolutely beautiful!

Liz Lisa Organdy Tunic and Sukapan Set

The first one I tried was the Liz Lisa Organdy Tunic and Sukapan Set. When I saw it I knew I had to get it, so I was really excited when she told me that she had a white one in stock!

When I opened it I was amazed by the detail on the material – it reminded me of the patterns on wedding dresses, and it was like I was thrown into a fairytale! I felt like such a princess tehe. There is a tie on the back so you could have it however tight/loose you wanted, with a zip on the side to make it easier to put on.

The skirt has an elastic waist which was quite generous, so that was easy to slip onto. What I didn’t know was that it had built in shorts – this is a definite positive for me because I always get worried of flashing my knickers… So if you don’t like wearing short skirts, this is perfect for you! 

Because the set was made from more than one layer it was actually a bit thicker than I expected, so I think that you could get away with wearing it on cooler spring days. However I got really cold in this outfit so I decided to try and show you that you can wear it when it’s cold too!

To layer it up I just wore some thick black tights and made sure there were other black elements to my outfit. Here I changed my jewellery, but a small black clutch bag would complete it.

Liz Lisa Velour Winter Floral Dress

Now this dress is absolutely perfect for winter; it’s made from velour which is a heavier material, but what makes it so thick is that it’s fully lined. Instead of having any zips it has shirring around the back and below the bust which made it really easy to slip into. It’s very stretchy so great for plus-sized gals!

This is actually one of the very few dresses that I have that can be worn both on the shoulder or off, but I much prefer it when it fell just off the shoulders. It added a hint of sexiness, but looks very cute at the same time!

Overall

All in all, I would highly recommend these two items! I fell in love as soon as I took them out of the packaging (which was done perfectly, by the way) and I can’t wait to wear them more often! Kawaii Gyaru Shop shipped out my items in less than a day after I placed my order… WITH a tracking number! How cool is that? And I received everything in around two weeks; that’s from it being shipped from America to the UK!

Kawaii Gyaru Shop has tons of nice clothes on her store, you should totally check it out!

Until next time my cuties

Yesstyle’s OOTD: Ghost of Harlem

Yesstyle’s OOTD: Ghost of Harlem

ghost of harlem, rokku gyaru, yesstyle review

I wore rokku gyaru the other day as it had been a while since I’ve done it, and I just had to wear this Ghost of Harlem dress from Yesstyle. I’m so happy that they sell brands on their website, especially as it’s quite hard to get Japanese brand online without having to pay an extortionate amount. This is actually my first rokku-branded item (can you believe it?) and I kind of want to buy more now… But I’ve got to think about my bank. One day, Lizzie, one day!

It wasn’t ‘too’ cold to wear, seeing as we’re already closing in on December, but I can see myself layering this dress up with a sheer blouse underneath. Rokku is great for layering up and I could always switch up my New Look shoe boots for over-the-knee ones.

Hey cuties! How are you this weekend? Having fun?

I’ve had a huge obsession with false nails lately… Because of my job I can’t really wear the super long ones but I have slowly started getting used to wearing them! I think my longest pair were my Halloween ones that I did… But everyone starts from somewhere, don’t they? 

To me, nails are a huge part of gyaru! I haven’t really thought it before but the tiny details do really make the coord complete! That’s why I was really happy when I saw that my friend Heather started selling some of her nails on Etsy >////< Now I can have easy access to short but pretty false nails! 

The nails I received were these gorgeous pink to purple glitter ombre ones that actually have some cute crystals on them! I asked for the short option because she does both long and short nails!

Please note that also this is a sponsored review, these thoughts are 100% my own!

himenailshop gyaru nails

As this is my first review for her, here’s a little bit about the store and her nails before I go on:

Based in the U.S.

There are three sizes for the nails: Queen, Princess and Dutchess

Custom sizing is available if you don’t fit into the above categories

Nails tips are made with ABS Virgin Plastic, then sealed & decorated with UV top coat

There’s a 10% discount is you use my code LIZZIEBEE

Here are some more pictures!

pretty packaging~

Now I actually swapped one of the fingers so the design here might look different to her website. I thought it looked cute this way

I was really in the oraora/tsuyome/ane gal mood when I tried these on so I just HAD to dress to reflect them >///<

Anyway, onto the ratings!

Postage and Packaging

I received them in a lovely little box – which I now use for storage
tehe – along with a  thank you card! So cute! It was really nice because
she actually put some thought into her packaging! It took about just
over a week to nearly two to arrive as she ships from America, so you
American readers are lucky ;D

Communication

Despite our time differences, she replied to me really shortly after my messages! She handled the whole situation with one of the nails being slightly small perfectly, and my replacement nails were sent out really quickly.

Appearance

I loved how they looked and thought they went really well with oraora and the “harder” gyaru styles! They probably won’t go with my agejo wardrobe as much, but they are still really pretty.

Usability ♡ 

Knocked off a heart because I won’t be able to wear these much with my wardrobe… Maybe I need to buy some oraora stuff. But they come shorter which is good for working gals like me 😀 Unfortunately one of the little gems came off while I was food shopping and I don’t have anything to replace it ;_; Hopefully I can find something in my nail supplies!

Overall

Overall I was really happy with my item! Obviously I knocked off the remaining percentage because of the nail sizing and the crystal coming off, but everything else was perfect! I’d definitely recommend her shop!

Oh wait! Before I go…

As
you may have noticed, I made a few tweaks to my blog! The biggest one
is that I’ve now got a custom domain! I’m so, so happy! I thought it was
time to get one as it’s been so many years since I’ve first blogged… I
really hope to get better! I’ve also got a new Twitter so please follow! @3lizziebee

Okay now it’s really time to go! Ciao!

Happy Halloween! Trick or Treat?

Happy Halloween! Trick or Treat?

Just wanted to wish everyone a Happy Halloween! Halloween is one of my favourite occasions of the year, but unfortunately I’m working so I can’t dress up ;_;

But to make up for it, I made some Halloween nails! I got some nail deco from Born Pretty Store which arrived just two days before Halloween! Just in time or what?

I’ve been trying to do more and more nails but I’m still a beginner ^^” I haven’t read got the knack for painting, but I try my best!

The nail deco I ordered were these ones from Born Pretty Store! I was kind of expecting to get the whole pack including the jack o’lanterns but apparently not! So guys please read the options carefully as it seems they only release one design, if that makes sense?

I ended up with the ghost faces which came as a pack of five, so plenty to do some nails! I used four, two for each of my accent nails, so I have one lying around for next year! 

They were the perfect size for my nails! I love them!

I also wore red lipstick which I also got from Born Pretty Store for work (working on Halloween sucks) and oh my gosh I love the colour! It’s not too dark so that it drains the colour of my skin, but not too orange either. What’s handy is that it’s small so it’s easy to just take it out and reapply when needed!

I bought some Halloween accessories to wear at work too :3

I really wish I had dressed up for Halloween but I’m super tired.. Guess I’ll just be a real-life zombie then hahahaha =_=

Tired Lizzie is tired… Please excuse my no-make face!

That’s all for now! Have a wonderful halloween! I drew this picture to celebrate too :3

See you on Sunday! Ciao! Don’t forget to use the code HORNH10 for a discount!

Yesstyle Review: GOLDS Infinity Ruffled Top

Yesstyle Review: GOLDS Infinity Ruffled Top

 

Hey everyone! How are you?

Yes, it’s me again… Looks like you have to put up with me for an extra day this week tehehe. As I explained in my last post “My Gyaru Wardrobe: Take Two!” I needed to do an extra post because I’ve got quite a few lined up and didn’t want to have a back log because then I’ll end up having lots of drafts but no published posts!

Today’s post is a review of this gorgeous GOLDS Infinity top from Yesstyle! Please note that although this is a sponsored review, all of my thoughts are 100% my own.

♡ Chain-Accent Tie-Back Ruffle Top

I received this top last week and I was so excited to try it on! As you know, I’m a huge agejo fan but I’ve only really worn MA*RS, and GOLDS Infinity still have a few elegant items that you could work with agejo. For now I’m going to call it “classy agejo”~

Front ~ Just loving the gold chain as a neckline
Back
Added in some agejo elements like lace shorts & patterned tights!

Top: GOLDS Infinity @ Yesstyle / Shorts: eBay / Tights : Primark / Shoes: Dorothy Perkins / Acc: Muse

I love love love this top. Even though it’s classier and leaning to the more onee gyaru style I can still mix it up with agejo but pairing it with some patterned tights and lace shorts. The only thing I would say though is that I found the tie a bit annoying to, erm, tie.

Seeing as it’s my first review of Yesstyle, I shall give them some ratings!

Postage and Packaging

I forgot to take photos of the actual packaging but it was fairly simply; all bunched up in a small bag so that it would fit through the letterbox. 

Communication

I have to knock off a star (heart) or two because of the fact that I originally ordered it in purple but received it in black… But it was okay because I messaged them about it and found out that it was because the purple was out of stock. At least the black one was still pretty~ But the purple… ;_; Oh well!

Appearance

Beautiful! Love the lace details on the sleeve.

Usability

Great for parties, and could possibly wear it to work with a blazer, skirt and black tights. Plus you can stick it in the washing machine!

Overall ♡ 

I would love to give Yesstyle a full rating but I had to knock off a few hearts because of the incorrect colour. However we did manage to sort it out and I really do love this top!

That’s all for now m’lovelies! Shall speak to you on Sunday

Kawaii Gyaru Shop Review: Vintage Doll

Kawaii Gyaru Shop Review: Vintage Doll

 

Hey cuties! How are you today? Hope you’re having a good weekend so far! I can’t believe it’s September already… It’s so depressing because I’m a summer baby ;_; But I’m also really excited to see the autumn trends! And perhaps to do some more shopping? *_*

Anyway, today I want to talk about this beautiful dress sponsored by the wonderful Kawaii Gyaru Shop . It’s from the super cute brand “Liz Lisa” which I seem to be falling in love with more and more each day! I’m hoping to expand my himekaji wardrobe but it looks like it’s put on hold as I have way too many clothes.

Enter the code LIZBEE to get a discount!

This is a photo of it that I had taken in my first sponsored review post for Kawaii Gyaru Shop! 

Liz Lisa Chiffon Dress

I was really looking forward to wearing this because of the recent change to autumn. I couldn’t want to wear browns, reds and blacks and this dress was perfect for it! It hasn’t gotten that cold that I needed to wear a sweater as it has two layers which makes the dress great for this kind of weather. Plus, I adore the sleeves so didn’t really want to cover them up :3 

I couldn’t decide whether or not to wear it with my brown boots but as it’s still quite mild I decided to go with my new brogues! I actually bought these from the kids section (tehehehe).

Dress: Kawaii Gyaru Shop (Liz Lisa) / Bag: Primark / Shoes: New Look / Acc: Primark & Forever21

This dress is definitely a lot longer than the ones I have previously owned, which I wasn’t quite used to! But I think the length is perfect for autumn because it covers the legs more to keep them warm(er). I think the frill at the bottom makes it feel like it’s shorter because it’s quite lightweight!

And, of course, have some selfies! Please ignore my hair… One section fell out when I was sleeping so it’s not as wavy as the others ( •̣̣̣̣̣̥́௰•̣̣̣̣̣̥̀ )

Me not being able to think of anymore poses

This dress is just so perfect *3* I am in love with the pattern, especially because it has red and brown hues… I was looking for some inspo to layer this up so when I went out I paired it with a very light cream coat. I’ll show more pictures in my next post of when I went out with my London gals :3

Overall I would definitely recommend getting Liz Lisa products from Kawaii Gyaru Shop. It is authentic and they always sell really beautiful collections there. I’m currently stalking them for ideas on what to wear for winter (but I must be good and refrain breaking my bank too much). The owner is incredibly friendly and always makes quick responses, and the shipping was really quick too!

They also sell quite a lot of other brands and some Sanrio items too! *_*

Until then, have a good week m’lovelies! <3

p.s. Please remember that most of the items from Kawaii Gyaru Shop are one/off because they do not sell replicas! Everything is the real-deal, so get it before it goes! ;D

p.p.s is there anything you want to see more of on my blog? I always look for ways to improve, and your input means a lot to me! <3

Hey everyone! How are you? I hope you all had a wonderful week. It’s been getting much warmer here now (about time) and so I’m feeling really positive despite my horrible hayfever ;_;

Today I’m super happy to bring you a review from Kawaii Gyaru Shop! I’ve been eyeing up this shop a lot lately due to my recent interest in hime kaji, and they also sell My Melody which is great. I was really happy when the owner, Stephanie, contacted me about doing a sponsored review. Even though this is a sponsored review, all opinions stated are my own!
