I'm back from my friend's place. I'm the most absent minded person and I didn't take any pictures at all. We didn't do much other then go shopping. I bought some sexy undies which, I wont go ahead and show you haha, but I also managed to pick up some more hairdye (my roots were getting horribly bad) and some new makeup.

For the love of Tanning.

I finally got to tan again last night. I've not been able to because of the cuts on my knees. I get a bit paranoid that I'll give myself blood poisoning if I tan over broken skin so I always have to wait for stuff to heal.
I'm so pleased with it though. I'm really loving the tanner I have at the moment. It's by Famous Dave's. I only bought it because my boyfriend's name is Dave but it turns out that pretty much every review said it was better the St Tropez and Fake Bake etc. After using it I can see why. I'm not so much orange but a brown colour and I'm really pleased with that. It's the only tanner that has really worked on my skim as well. I have such light skin that most just dont make much of a difference at all.
I totally recommend it. I use the DARK version in the spray, but there are other varieties available. A quick search on Ebay will come up with quite a few hits so go and buy if you're looking for a decent tanner.

Top 10 looks from Ageha Jan 2011

Well I finally got my hands on a copy of the January issue of Ageha. There is a distinct lack of outfit variation in this issue though which is a bit of a let-down considering it's usually my first go-to for inspiration but what it lacks in outfits it quite clearly makes up for in styling and make-up techniques which, I think, was probably the aim.

I hate to make 2 posts in one day but I just looked at the Secrets comm and I managed to get a couple of hate secrets. Huzzah for me.

1. I posted it to show the outfit, "Stupid cat outfit" as it shall now be known. However, that being said, it's a Yumetenbo item and one of the heighest ranked items on the Kumi Makiko store. Meh. You win some you loose some.
2. I'm just gonna cover the makeup/skin/hands thing in one go. Try spending 18 hours in a dirty warehouse. You'd understand. I also pretty clearly stated in the post that I was posting one PRIOR to the night of dancing to show my hair and make and this one was just for the outfit. Seriously, do people not read?
3. No lenses? Seriously. They're not a requirement. Even so, I wouldn't of worn them on NYE because I value my eyes more then that. It would of been far too long to keep them in.

It seems someone thinks I'm fat and doesn't like my boyfriend's messy room. HAHA. I almost cried with laughter about the fact they circled the mess. I do keep trying to get my boyfriend to tidy up, perhaps after he's seen this he'll do so.

I dont feel SO bad about the bad secrets because I see girls I think are gorgeous and wonderful getting hate secrets all the time. I guess some people are insecure and well, you can't please everyone.

Boring day.

I have done pretty much nothing today except for waiting for the workman to come and check where the leak in our ceiling fan is coming from. He was meant to be here at 9am this morning but didn't come until about 2 oclock this afternoon. It wasn't his fault but it's really annoying when you can't do anything but wait.

I've also been trying my hand at drawing Chibis. My mum has a Wacom Bamboo tablet that she very rarely uses and I wanted to try my hand at it. I'm just completely stuck at drawing the hair. Is anyone a graphical whizz out there and can give me some pointers?


This is my very messy sketch of her so far. Help me, please?

Clothes haul!

I'm finally back from my boyfriend's after far too long with a limited supply of clothes and underwear Photobucket! I do miss being with him but I need to get my clothes and stuff, plus having my own PC again is nice. Laptops get a bit annoying after a while Photobucket.
Upon my arrival home again I had a huge haul of clothes and some other bits and bobs Photobucket! Gosh, I love ebay so much haha. My fed-ex stuff from China had also arrived. I'm so choosing fed-ex next time I order with them.

I'll show you the stuff from China first.

Top 10 Outfits of Egg January 2011.

Yesterday's post was Ranzuki and today is going to be Egg. After Ageha, Egg is by far my favourite Gyaru magazine. I had a really hard time narrowing this post down to just 10 outfits but I think I managed to do it ok. Egg was the first Gyaru magazine I ever read and inspired my love for the style so I guess that's probably why I love it so much.
Anyway, here are my top 10 looks from the January issue.

Top 10 co-ordinates from Jan 2011 Ranzuki.

I've decided to do a monthly thing for my 4 favourite magazines (Ageha, Ranzuki, Egg and Popteen) that I'll pick out my favourite co-ordinates and post them on here.
The way I started learning to co-ordinate and still do, to some extent, is to look through the magazines and pick out co-ordinates I like I try and put together something similar with the items already in my closet or, in fact, buying new ones. Whenever I go shopping, still to this day, I do it with particular co-ordinates in my head and try to re-create those in my own style and my own way using the items I can find on the highstreet or on the internet. I personally think this is a great way to get into the style. I know a lot of gals criticise "copying" but that is fashion, at the end of the day, you "copy" what you see in the magazines or what inspires you and add your own flare to it. As long as you dont go out and buy those EXACT items and style them EXACTLY the same way then I think you're ok ( ^∇^).

So anyway, these are my top 10 from the January Issue of Ranzuki.


Ahead of my game.

So there I was, casually browsing the January copy of Ranzuki and BAM I open up a page and staring back at me is Nicorun wearing what looks to be the Yumetenbo coat I bought as my Birthday Pressie to myself.

I dont think it's the exact coat as the toggles are a little different but I always feel pleased when I see clothes I own appear in the magazines.

I've been stuck at my boyfriend's house which is nice because we get to spend more time with each other but I'm quickly running out of clean clothes and outfit ideas.

So, what have I done to pass the time while my boyfriend's been out working? I gave myself a bit of a haircut.

This was yesterday's hair and make and my kinda "before" shot I guess. At least of my fringe anyways.

Saying goodbye to China.

My boyfriend's cousin lives in China. When I say cousin, they're more like brothers really. They are such a pair and whenever he comes over to visit I can just see where my boyfriend has picked up all his traits. I've only ever met him once and already I think really highly of him. He's a proper lad and I guess most girls would hate that but I respect his honesty about things I guess. Anyway, he's been here visiting and he goes home tomorrow. We've had so much fun.

Happy New Year!

Happy New Year everyone! I hope you all had a fantastic time seeing in 2011, I know I did.

What did everyone get up to? I went to a party in London called Acid Monkey. I was a little apprehensive at first because it was a psytrance party and I'm not the biggest fan of that genre. The party was so well put together though and I had SUCH a great time. So worth the really intense journey home. We had to get on the Underground then a bus service for an hour and then 2 different trains back here again. Naargh. So not what you want when you've been up all night with barely any food and feeling the burn Photobucket
