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!"
