Finally feeling festive. A few early birthday pressies.

I feel totally spoilt at the moment. My parents came to bring up the little xmas tree they had because we were lacking anything festive in the new flat. They also brought me pressies! I'm keeping most of them to open tomorrow but there were a couple of things they wanted me to open while they were there as I wont see them on the actual day of my birthday. Meep.

Our xmas tree! Excuse the table carnage haha.

About half of my birthday pressies! I feel so spoilt this year. I have more pressies then I've had since I was a little'un, even on my 21st I didn't get this many haha.

These are the items I opened while my parents were here.

The throw and the pillows. The Pillows are actually for the bed but the duvet covers I asked for are still wrapped up for tomorrow so I've made them sofa cushions for now. I had to explain to my boyfriend that they were decorative pillows, not for sleeping on. He's like "What, just to look at? We're not even gonna give them to guests to sleep with?" I had to explain that you wouldn't give them a canvas print to sleep on so you wouldn't make them sleep on the pillows either! Men, eh? So ignorant to interior design haha.

He made it up to me by joining in the fun and giving me an early birthday pressie. He said he didn't know how he was going to be able to wrap it so he might as well give it me now haha.

Strawberry icecream lip balm! It actually smells delicious. I would eat it if I didn't know it was lip balm haha.

I've finally decided on the hair and makeup styles for tomorrow. I'm going to try and practice them today if I get the flat cleaned in time before my boyfriend comes home with his cousin. These are the pictures I'm getting inspiration from:



God I hope I can pull off the hair. I've done suji before so it should be ok. Meep. I'm kinda excited about tomorrow now. I don't know if I'll get chance to post but those of you who follow me on twitter might get a twitpic or two.

I'm officially an auntie!

OMG OMG OMG! I became an auntie to a gorgeous little boy yesterday morning at 2:30am. I'm so happy. What a fantastic birthday and Xmas pressie. I just cannot wait to meet him. I get to see him for the first time over xmas when we see my sister.

Isn't he just beautiful? Meep. I'm so not a baby-person but when it's part of your family it's different, you know? God I just want to cuddle him!

I need help with my birthday hair and make. This is the dress I'm going to be wearing:

I've been looking through inspirations for what to wear my hair and makeup like all morning. Still not 100% sure.

These are the make inspirations I've found whilst browsing tumblr.

I was thinking of using mainly golds on my eyes to match the gold buttons on the dress.

As for hair, I want to do some suji but I don't want to spend hours on it only to get angry that it doesn't look perfect and end up abandoning it as usually happens with my suji attempts haha. Anyway, these are the inspirations, there's a bit of suji in there but some simpler styles too.

Non-Suji Styles

Suji Styles.

Sorry for the mega spam post but I'm just brainstorming, you know? And it might be good to get your input too ^_^.

Lastly, I'll leave you with some food haha. My boyfriend made us dinner the other night and completed it with a little heart-shaped piece of fried toast. Isn't he lovely? Not doing my diet any favours though.

Quick make and outfit post.

I'm sorry for the lack of posts but we still don't have internet in our new flat. I'm having to use that BT FON network thing and it's no quicker then using WAP on my phone! Still, there's enough speed to let you guys know that I'm still alive!

The flat is really cute but I haven't managed to get pictures of it yet. We're in but it currently looks like my boyfriend's bedroom. There's all his tribal hippy shit everywhere and it looks really tacky haha. My parents are buying us some nice bits and bobs for the place for my birthday and xmas so I'll take pictures once I've managed to get the balance of male and female back in order! I can't wait to be able to decorate the place with our new things.

Also, it's my birthday coming up on the 22nd of this month. I will be 22 years old. My god, I feel like an old lady, especially compared to most of the young ladies in the Gyaru community! I should really be thinking about "graduating" haha. We're having a little get-together in the new flat. I need ideas for hair and make-up. I need to look gorgeous, or as close to gorgeous as possible, you know? Anyone have any suggestions?

Anyway, here are a few looks and such from the past few weeks. You know I'm really awful at remembering to actually take pictures. I need someone to remind me constantly haha.

THE POUFFE! If anyone was wondering about those hair pouffe things I bought from, I'm using them here. They are actually quite cool but it takes a little work getting them in.

Stupid glare, but wearing my new Princess Mimi lenses. I love them, they are much more comfortable then the Geo Nudy lenses I've been using previously. It's nice to have a change and have brown eyes!

The only outfit post I have! I'm a serious fail when it comes to getting my outfits documented haha. Please ignore the really ridiculous look on my face.

And lastly I leave you with...

Possibly the best Advent Calender in the world. There's a big window on my birthday so I might be getting a larger chocolate or some stickers which are even better because they don't ruin my diet haha.

I promise I'll get pics of my flat soon when it's less like a hippy den!

Herpy derpy good news.

Guys, GUYS! I have good news (wow, what, I'm not going to piss and moan about stuff this time? WTF?)! I had a call from the estate agents the day before yesterday...  We've been accepted! Our deposit and first months rent were paid today. We get to pick up the keys on Monday after we've gone through the terms of our tenancy and such. Oh my god! I'm so excited I can barely contain myself!

Yesterday we went for a first grocery shop, picked up a few essentials that we know will keep, canned goods, teabags and the like as well as cleaning products and things like loo roll and toothpaste. I've never wished for a Monday so hard in my life!

Anyway, here are some really boring looks from the past few days. I tried to have a go at imitating the front cover of the November Jelly magazine.

Tbh I think I look like a herpy derpy scene kid. I'm never very good with the natural look and making it actually look gal. I just end up looking normal haha.

And then today's look which is equally as uninteresting but I like using my boyfriend's camera.

Even if it does make me look seriously pale and completely deletes all the contouring from my face. The flash however has also deleted all the spots I have at the moment which is a bit of a plus haha. Ignore the hairspazz.

Can't wait until I can take pictures of the flat and make a blog post showing you. Cross your fingers that we get internet set up pretty sharpish lol.

11/11/11 wishes.

Happy 11/11/11 everyone Photobucket! This is the only time this particular arrangement of numbers will appear in our lifetime so I think we're experiencing something special. Not only is this date beautiful but tragic too; it's Rememberence Day, the time to remember all those who fought for our country in any war past or present. I won't say much because I don't think there is anything I could say to really put across how admirable it is to have given the ultimate sacrifice for us.

Instead I thought I'd give my hopes I've been thinking about on this lucky day:

1. I'd like to be able to stick to my diet, become fit, strong and happy with myself.

2. I'd like my boyfriend and I to have a successful and happy move and finally get to living an independent life of our own.

3. To finally recover fully from my illnesses and be able to go back into work and keep a job without relapsing.

What are your hopes or wishes on this special day?

On the topic of weight loss, I had a bit of inspiration in the form of an old Ageha magazine last night. I was totally inspired by a whole spread they did on weightloss:

These are from the November 2007 issue. Everyone knows that 06/07/08 was my favourite gyaru era. I love these issues of Ageha; the issues at the moment don't inspire me with such excitement like they used to. I'm a bit stuck in my old ways! I feel like my dad haha.

I'm so excited about tomorrow! We're going to a UK Hip Hop event at the Norfolk Showground and my favourite UK hip hop artist is going to be there. It'll be the first time I've ever seen him perform. I'm excited like you can't believe. I've not got much to say so I'll leave you with one of his tunes.

Boyfriend's gifts!

I know I said I'd post my clothes haul today but my camera on my phone is epically bad and all the photos I took look like poo. Once I go to my boyfriend's to see him I can use a decent camera to show you the things I've got. 

But do not fear, I still have things to show you! My boyfriend surprised me with some gifts. Isn't he lovely? Well they were just a couple of little things but meep, I love it when he surprises me like that!

Hello Kitty Charm Bracelet and matching necklace! Aren't they cute? Anyone who knows me knows how much I love Hello Kitty and I think these things are just adorable. Now they can go with my Hello Kitty Lens case, my Hello Kitty Purse, my... I think I've gone Hello Kitty Mental, don't you?

I also have me wearing my new Diamond Lashes!

HERPY DERPY. Sorry for the bad upload, photobucket is having a fail at me and blogger is really awful at compressing files. Wearing my wig, I'm never really sure if it suits me.

Lastly I leave you with...

VELCRO HEAD! Because it's full of Velcro-y goodness.

Sorry for the short entry, feeling a little bit stressed and put-out today and therefore I have no inspiration for anything constructive or useful. I'm thinking about doing a little review on the Diamond Lash eyelashes (the upper ones) when I can utilize a decent camera. Would any of you be interested in that?

Shoppingholics haul!

Omg YAY my stuff from Shoppingholics (as well as loads of other stuff but that would make an epically big post so I'll talk about them tomorrow)! Finally I have diamond lash eyelashes of my own.

These are the eyelashes I bought.
1. Diamond Lash Series 2 No.3 Angel Lash Upper Eyelashes. They are so long and gorgeous. I can't wait to try them out.
2. Diamond Lash Series 1 No.4 Lovely Eye Lower Eyelashes. This style I've seen so much in magazines, especially in Egg.
3. Spring Heart No.12 Dynamite Volume Eyelashes. These look so volumous and glam. I have seen these kinds of eyelashes a lot in Ageha.

I really loved the packaging for the Spring Heart eyelashes. Isn't it cute?

I also got this little thingymajig to put in your hair for volume. It will help give my hair a bit of a break from teasing!

I was also given free gifts!

1. These are little velcro things to keep your hair out of your face. Very handy indeed.

2. These are cucumber eye masks. I can't wait to use these. I always have a problem with dark circles!

3. A face mask. I can't read the instructions or anything but I like the packaging.

4. These are little tools to help apply your false lashes. You put the lashes on the curved article at the bottom and then use the big blue thing as clippy tweezer whatsits to pick it up and then apply it to you eye! I'll let you know how easy it is to use!

Here's a better view of the velcro whatsits that hold your hair back.

Isn't the package just adorable?!

Lastly, I was given a thank you card along with my order but the name was wrong! The order was mine but they had the wrong name in the card haha. Oh well, it was nice to get a thank you anyways.

I really like Shoppingholics. They have a good selection and great personal service, good shipping times and rates and generally I would recommend them to anyone looking to buy Japanese Eyelashes or Circle lenses. Definitely worth a look.

I also have news! My boyfriend and I went to the estate agents yesterday afternoon to hand in our paperwork for the flat and now, on the website the flat is listed as "references pending"! I'm sure our references should go through ok, we've not given any misinformation or anything of the sort so fingers crossed we should be in within the next couple of weeks. I'd be so gutted if not! Meep! I can't wait.

Tomorrow I'm going to update with my clothes gets and hopefully I'll get my Cocona-style makeup tutorial up.
Also, I now have a Poupee girl account. Please add me if you have one too!
