Sunday Gets.

Ok so technically I got this stuff yesterday but I spend the entire day in the company of friends and couldn't blog about them straight away but here we are.

First of all I have a small eyelash haul.

(left to right) Cat Eye, Angel Eye and Princess Eye. Angel Eye and Princess Eye are my two favourite Diamond Lash styles I've bought and I really wanted to try out Cat Eye as I've seen it on Mipochi before and I loved the look of them. I've yet to wear them but hopefully I'll be able to show you how they look on within the next few days.

These gorgeous Peep-Toe heels are by DEEP 7.  I have leopard-print flat boots by the same brand and they have lasted me years so I'm hoping these will be equally as good. They are exceptionally high though. I'm going to have to train my feet to walk in them before I actually go out anywhere wearing them.

I have this coat too. I haven't got a picture of it "in the flesh" but you can get the gist of it. I wear my Yumetenbo Leopard Print coat too much and it's not waterproof so the fur is getting a little scraggy now and I don't want to keep putting it through that torment so it's good I finally have a waterproof coat as well. It's snug and warm and soft and that's all I need!

Lastly I have my most recent make-up look to show you.

I'm using Diamond Lash Angel on the top and Princess on the bottom. The Circle Lenses are from the Princess Mimi series. They are my favourite lenses to wear.

I cannot wait until I get to try out my new Cateye lashes!

Comeback with Gyaru Manifesto Meme

Hello Gals and Guys!

Firstly I must apologise for the lack of posts recently. After moving from a little flat that cost us pennies we moved to a house with a higher rent and more expensive bills and I have to admit, we were struggling for money and my hobbies kinda took a back-seat. With nothing interesting to post like "gets" etc I just seemed to stop posting but now we have finally settled into the swing of things and I finally have enough money again to spend on non-necessities so here we are.

I wanted to come back with the Gyaru Manifesto Meme. I filled this out back when I first started this blog and I think it's quite interesting to now see how things have changed in terms of my style, Gyaru goals and inspirations etc.

First discovery of gyaru: I first saw Gyaru back in 2005 when I became interested in Japanese Fashion as a whole. I was first introduced to the Ganguro and Mamba girls that were around then and thought "wow this style is CRAZY!" Needless to say I didn't follow it until a number of years later when I started seeing pictures of Aina and Yumachi and I thought to myself "These bitches are HOT, I want to look like that!"
