away Iv been, Inspiration and going to Japan!

Sooo I am sorry for the very very late post. I have been working my bum off!! this is my first day off in weeks!>< A lot has happened, for example, we might be moving house, and this is so random! I just came home from work one day and my brother says 'we might be moving'. We wont be moving far, same town, basicly what had happened was, my mum was looking through the newspaper and saw a house she really liked, so her and my dad went to view it and decided they wanted it, BUT this is only if we can sell our house. I don't know it seems to all be happening pretty fast to be honest.

So yea the reason for me working my bum off is because I am going to Japan next year in april, I am taking a month off work but will probably go for 2 weeks or so. My dad was there for 3 months this year, so he feels pretty happy with me going as he knows a translator in Japan who he is good friends with. I am doing my best to save up, as I know its going to be expensive ><!

With all this work I have been doing I havn't really had time to put much make up on or dress up.....or just have a social life in general so it seems. However with all that being said I have been going on Aina tanaka's blog, as she is my favrioute egg model. 
I love her fashion sense, and the different ways shes done her eye make up over the years.
So I thought I would post some pictures of her.

Bahh she is so pretty! I think the reason why she is my favrioute gyaru model is because she is the first one I came across? if that makes sense. Ok so basically going back a few years, I was on youtube, looked up gyaru models and one of the first ones I went on was Aina tanaka, and ever since I have just loved her photos, style and make up. I guess you could say she opened my eyes into the gyaru world and what I love about it. The fashion,hair,make up and just expanding my mind to this style which I new next to nothing about and being more creative with clothes and accessories.

The reason why I have done a blog post about this by the way is because someone a while ago asked me who my favrioute gyaru model is, and well....heres my answer.
Of course I think all the models are adorable and look amazing, but I think everyone has their own favrioute at hand.

Moving on....

Like I said I have been busy, HOWEVER you are never busy enough to go shopping.....well I didn't do that much, just a little after work when i have had an early shift or something.

Ok so I LOVE big cardigans, and as the weather has all of the sudden gotten EXTREMELY friggen cold! I decided to buy one, they did also have this cardigan in cream, however I already have a cream cardigan so I got this reddish/purple one as I really like this colour as well.

 Oh these leggins where only £5!! I couldn't go wrong, they where in the sale and was so happy when I found them in my size ><! I loved the pattern on them so much! I couldn't turn them down.

 I have wanted a top like this for a while now and think it would look with a tanned belt that I have, was also in the sale at £5 hurray ^^ my lucky day.

So I am going to end this blog with saying that I have been living off of these because of the cold weather and the amount of work iv been taking on at the moment, they are the best at these times <3

till next time x

travel to newcastle + new lashes, hair help?

I am so sorry for the really late post, A lot has happened recently and its been kind of hectic, but life is all back on track now ^^

Warning picture heavy!

Ok so on Thursday the 5th I went to visit Emilia! It was so nice to see her, although I was ill T_T nothing really bad just had a bit of a bad throat. Me and Emilia had come to the conclusion that I sounded like a hippie....which I still do now -.-.
So to start off this trip I had to get up kind of early because my train was early [cheaper train tickets and all] I only had to get 2 trains though and its not long. On my way there I had 4 cups of tea to help my throat >< with lots of sugar of course.

Tea, I have so much love for you.

I went with Emilia and her lil family to this all you can eat chinese/japanese restaurant, it was so yummy! Though really most of the time I was there I was trying to get over the fact how much Lilianna  had grown! she's growing up so quickly>< she will be as tall as me soon D: Lilianna was also enjoying her share of the food, but mainly at the deserts and grapes aha, she is the cutest little girl.
Well after our meal we went and had a browse around newcastle, though to be honest whenever I do go to newcastle I never really find anything that I want to buy, but I guess thats a good thing right? Its not that newcastle has no shops, its just that I never seem to really find anything when I am there. However I did buy pineapple bread from a chinese bakery, its so nice, me and emilia always go there when I am up for a visit ><. We went and sat in coffee shops and had nice little chats, and talked whilst walking around as well, I swear we can talk all day about anything and everything.
Of course we took photos as well, because last time I came up to visit we didn't get a chance, so this time we made sure we took lots of photos >:D even though I decided not to wear a lot of make up because I wasn't feeling that good, I still liked the photos.

I stole this one from Emilia because I love the lil heart, though she said she did this to cover a man behind us who was pulling an odd face aha.
I was so glad that the weather turned out nice. I was worried at first because when I was on the train [which is about 3hours] it was raining, really badly, but as we got closer to Newcastle the weather was getting nicer and nicer. I had such a wonderful time, the day went by so quickly, which was a shame, it seemed to have gone in  blink of eye :( but I had to go because the next day I was going to London.

I got new lashes from diamond lash and decided to give them a go ^^, so heres some photos and what not

The new lashes I got

and here is me without lashes and not that much make up ><

then added top lashes

then bottom ones [with a lil more make up><]

I am sooo happy I got these lashes ^^ today was really the first time in a while that I have put lashes on and everything, so it was nice and fun to do.

oh, I also just got back from America, and bought yummy things back with me >:D

ok, so I should point out that not all of this is for me, some is for friends and shared with my little brother ><

Also I need help with my hair again, I don't think I will dye it dark red again, though I love the colour it is a pain to keep, it also desperately needs cutting, though I am a lil stumped with what to do with it at the moment, I was thinking  of doing the 2 toned thing but with natural colours, like light brown on top and a darker brown underneath or the other way round, bah I just have such a hard time deciding -.-

Well thats it for now, I will be posting more frequently from now on, til next time x

My birthday week! & Super Junior

Ok so I had a lot of fun last week, I did lots of things, and saw a lot of people ~ which is a good thing because the past 2 weeks before that I hadn't seen anyone due to the fact that I had been at work every single day. Though I do feel like the week went very quickly, but thats what happens when you are having fun, right?
There are many things I want to type about so I will start with Tuesday, I went to see my grandad in the morning and had a good ol chat with him, but he started to feel sleepy and I could see him dozing off so I made my way to London to meet up with my friend Damon, and just basicly wonder round London and chill out. It was very humid, and although it did rain at one point during the day it was still so warm but nice. Our first destination was of course Hagen Daaz restraunt, because Damon had never been before, and he likes ice cream so it was perfect.

So I know this doesn't look like a lot but it is SUPER filling, I am also amazed eveytime I go in there they never write down your order, they remember it perfectly, and this is with all of there customers, I could never do that for I have a memory like a fish -.-
So after this we had a look at a few shops, sometimes I just like walking around, its so relaxing.
We decided to into the M&M store in leiscter square.

Look at all the M&M's, although they look tasty we didn't buy any because I do think it is stupidly over priced in there, but its nice to look at some of the things that they havein there.
Damon also got me a birthday present, which is a book to help with memory, basicly different ways to help you remember things, I found this hilarious because like I said my memory is TERRIBLE, though it runs in my family.

It is such a cute little book and has cute drawings in it as well.

I had a fun day Tuesday, but I did have to go home early-ish because the next day was my birthday, and there was a lot planned. So come Wednesday morning and I woke up to cards, and my mum telling me to get ready, though it was kind of rushed because I got up late, and for some reason was so slow getting ready.

'Thank you for being the most fantastic,caring and wonderful daughter,
All our love Mum and Dad'

Aww my parents are the nicest! started to get a little teary eyed bless them>< they are too nice to me!

 Me, my mum and my mums friend Kirsty where going shopping in Cambridge, basicly the plan was to go to cambridge and if I saw anything that I liked then my mum would buy it for me, but to honest I only wanted a few things, one of which was a new bikini, because I didn't really have one and I am going to america in 13 days, when I am over there we go to waterparks and it is really hot, so we found one, I fell in love which it as soon as I saw it!

Ok so I am going to be honest here, I don't remember a time where I have worn a bikini, but I decided to be brave and get one and wear it when I go to America!
I also found a cardigan that I really liked, because I lost my favrioute one at a Cinema T_T well basicly I took it off when I went to see the avengers and only realised when I got home that I had left it there, by the time I had noticed it was too late :'( BUT! I found one to replace it, it is very big even though it is a small but oh so comfy.

These are the only items I got to honest, because these are the only ones that caught my interest, plus I am going shopping when I go away, there just wasn't many things there that I wanted to buy. Well after our small shop around cambridge my mum had suprised me with afternoon tea at this lovely hotel, they had a lot on the menu, but I wasn't really hungry so I just orderd a pot of tea and some scones, which came with cream and jam.

I thought it was so cute when it came out on to our table! it was so yummy as well, but again very filling, I wasn't even able to use all of the jam and cream!
We sat and had a girly chat for a few hours and I loved it. So now lets forward to dinner time, me and my family went to an Italian restraunt, so I went home and got ready as I didn't really put on a lot of make up when I went shopping during the day, I also tried out my new contacts that I got on Monday, I really like how they look and they are comfy to wear.

So before we lefty brother gave me a card with a big bar of chocolate, I thought it was the sweetest thing, because my brother is so much like our dad, as in they are both can't really say how they feel, like saying I love you, they are very manly men, so I smiled a lot when I opened the card and saw this.

Funny how little things can make me smile, but if you knew my dad and brother you would understand.

It was so nice to have a meal with all of my family! I can't remember the last time we did such a thing, because we have all been so tied up with work and such, I can't describe how happy I was.To top it off the food at the restraunt was lovely, I was kind of worried because we had never been there before, but it was beautiful. I had fish with potatoes & salad, it was so tasty, I would definatly have it again!

Was very tasty.

On the Thursday I met up with emi and we drove down to bournmouth to stay and see some of our friends, we didn't leave til Sunday. I had such a good time! though didn't take any pictures, this is because we spent most of our time catching up, playing games, sleeping and eating junk food [only for a few days so its alowed] like I said though it went way too quickly.Emi also got me this really cute bracelet for my birthday.

I think its so nice, and I love wearing it.
It was a great birthday, and the messages I got on facebook made me smile [though that may sound silly] I am so lucky to have a lovely family and amazing friends who make me smile.
Now only 13 days until I fly to the U.S.A with my brother, though we have to leave the house at 3am, I think I am going to cry T_T
So I shall leave you with Super Junior's new MV, which I love, the song puts me in such a good mood.

Thank you for reading

Shopping week

So you might be wondering why I use the title shopping week, well this is because this week I am completly free, no work, no nothing. It is my week off basicly because wednesday of this week is my birthday and it is a big one. So this has been planned for sometime now and everyday of this week I have something planned. Tuesday I am going to see my grandparents, then London and emi's. Wednesday birthday, which during the day I am going shopping with my mum in Cambridge and then having a birthday meal with my family. Thursday I leave with emi and drive down to Bournmouth to see some friends, we leave Saturday and Sunday I am just going to sleep and have a roast dinner.

So a busy week ahead of me :D But don't think that today I did nothing, because today I went shopping in London with Shailey ^^

To start the day off I was kind of pondering on what to wear, I heard it was going to be pretty warm so I decided to be brave and go with shorts and top, It did end up being lovely weather all day so I was pretty happy.

Today's outfit:

Bit of a simple look today, and yes I am wearing shorts, just realised you can't really see them though D:!
So first stop was Camden, to be honest I have gone off Camden, me and Emi use to go there a lot, but now not so much, just because of the fact that we never really see/find anything that we want to buy, the only thing I did like about Camden was this AMAZING cake stand which did vegan cakes/cookies/brownies which is no longer there and makes me very sad D:! However Shailey wanted to go which didn't bother me, I was pretty happy just walking around, and who knows maybe I would find something that would catch my interest.
Coming to the end of our travels round Camden market and I found something that caught my attention.

[a bit creased from being scrunched up in my bag]

I thought this shirt was brilliant! and yes I know Camden has many different styles of shops, and many shops with pretty dresses, but I fell in love with this top when I saw it, they had one in white as well, but I prefferd the grey. This was the only thing I bought in Camden, though it was still nice to browse and have a look around, sooo many food stands to look at as well.

So now moving on from Camden our next stop was leicester square and we went to have some purikura taken, also shailey needed a new membership card because she had lost her other one. This one is my fav out of the bunch.

Then off we went to get food, and went to the Japanese restraunt Suki. I decided to be adventurous and get something that I have never had before which was crispy duck salad, it was so tasty! and I got a lot of duck in the Salad as well which I wasn't expecting.

After dinner we did a bit more shopping around and down stairs from purikura a new store had opened up which sold a good amount of different face masks, so I decided to check it out, and they did single ones [so you could mix and match] I decided to buy 3 differents kinds and see how I would like them, and then if I did I could always go back and buy the big boxes of them that they had for sale.

The Masks I bought.

I'm not the only one who gets a bit excited when they buy new skin care products,make up & contacts that they can't wait and just want to try all of it on the spot! well yea thats me anyways -.-

I also ended up buying some new contact lenses, which I can't wait to wear out! I was just browsing and wanted a bright blue, I ended up coming across some but they do look huge o.0 which is good don't get me wrong, and they look very pretty I just hope they look nice on my eyes, I will probably wear these on Wednesday when I go to Cambridge:D!

I also bought a new contact lense case [needed one for when I go to America] I did have one for airplanes but the mirror broke and so did the tweezers that came with it, So I got a new one and is now the home for my new lenses :D

[because I loved pink panther when I was younger....still do]

So this is all I got in London, I say this is all but it is actually kind of a lot o.0 I didn't stay out too late, got home around 8 because I am going a lot tomorrow.
Do exepct some more shopping blog posts soon though. Thank you for reading and shall see you in the next post.x.

bye Emilie + other updates

Ok so I thought I would start of by saying bye to Emilie and good luck to her in Japan! I was invited to the leaving thingy-ma-bob. I was so kind of worried, only reason being is because I am bad when it comes to meeting new people/big groups, this is because I get nervous and talk....I talk loadsss, I talk so much I don't know when to shut up -.- I am terrible. This is becuase I just feel like I should say something, but I don't really realise what I say some of the time until afterwards and it hits my brain minutes later.

I have only ever met Emilie at expo and she is a very nice person, I was glad to see her before she left, and I loved her eye make up.

So first we met up with peoples and went to a park, thankfully the weather was decent, bit of wind here and there but nothing mayjor. We all brought some different food/drink, I wasn't really sure what to bring so I just bought many packs of pocky, I think they where all eaten or at least given to a good home >< kind of wish I took a picture, but believe me when I say there was A LOT.
I had a lot of fun at this event, met some nice new people and had the most amazing chocolate and peanut butter cupcake, wish again that I took a picture butttt I was too busy eating it and enjoying it.
I didn't take any pictures, this is because I was pretty happy with talking to people and enjoying myself.

Well me, emi and Lizzie left and said goodbye to everyone, all the people there where so nice.

Emi had to go somewhere so me and Lizzie headed off to boots, I needed some things desperatly from there and then we headed to the japanese restraunt that I took her to last time >:] though no Haagen Daz ice cream restraunt this time because we where just so full.

So after our bellys where full we went and had some purikura taken, HUZAH!
here are some of the pictures.

aha just incase you wanted to know what me and lizzie where wearing :]

I also bought a few things, we didn't stay out too late, this is because I had work in the morning [also was father's day in the morning so I got up and made my parents breakfast in bed] Anyways here are some of the things that I had bought.

Yep, eyelashes and face masks, I really liked the look of these eyelashes, though I really need to buy some new glue -.-
The masks that I had bought are for when I go to America, this is because it is going to be a long old travel, this is because we don't need to get one flight, but two! then there is waiting at the airport [this can usually be between 3-7 hours for our change over]. What I was getting at though is that these masks are good for making me feel refreshed on the plane and kind to my skin, though I havn't tried these ones before, but the lady in the shop helped me [they had so many different kinds of masks I didn't even know where to start] she said she used these for flights as well and said they are really good, well I am sold because she had perfect skin aha.
So this story is going to relate to my updated news, I don't think I have mentioned this in a previous blog entry but I go to America every year, and I usually travel on my own [to see family] but I am happy to say that my little brother is coming with me! This makes me so happy becuase I have always wanted him to come with me, though I got our flight details, and we have to get up pretty darn early, and when I say early we need to leave the house at 3am -.-.

We are not leaving until mid July, but I am just so happy/excited for this, I have always wanted him to come with me, I just hope he has a good time.
[some more old-ish purikura of me and my brother]

Ok so I say little brother, he is actually A LOT bigger than me, damn it why am I so small D:!
so to celebrate this [bout a week or so ago] we went to pizza hut before I took him kyaking, well we just wanted an excuse to go to pizza hut, and he paid for it o.0 bless him, sometimes I feel like I am the younger one -.-
So with that being said I am going to leave you with the picture of the pizza we had which was just so epic it had meatballs and cheese in the crust.

This was so tasty, so yea I am going to leave now because I feel so hungry, see you guys next time! x

Shopping in London with Lizzie & new blog layout

So I have been meaning to do a post for a while now, and I was supposed to do a post about me and Lizzie's meet [I have been busy at work] 
So now I have time I thought I would tell you about our fun little day out in London :]

So go back to October and I went to a gal meet with my best friend in London, I was a bit nervous at first because there where so many people and when I first meet people I get nervous and talk a lot and just don't shut up, so yea I was a little worried.
Anyways while I was there I briefly met Lizzie and she was so nice! 
we chatted for a while but I didn't see her after that really, though we had each other on Facebook, and after many months and chatting online we decided to meet up and go shopping in London.
So when I left my house it was lovely and sunny, then it just turned into rubbish weather, and it was like that the whole day :( I started to look like a drowned rat by the end of the day -.-

It was funny, I was walking up to the exit of the underground and turned my head and lizzie was there also walking up, perfect timing!! we both laughed at how amazing our timing skills where.
We first took some purikura, it was lots of fun, I love taking purikura with friends, I just love decorating the pictures afterwards, but I think this is my favourite picture of us.

She is so pretty! and has such a lovely smile.
Soon after this we started to feel hungry, so I suggested this japanese restaurant that I thought she would like, I was praying that she would like the food in there ><!

When we got in Lizzie got a lil confused with the seating arrangements ;p
The food in this restaurant is good and pretty cheap as well.
So Lizzie got tempura ramen 

Looks zoo tasty! I may have to try this next time I go there.
However I got pork cutlet ramen, was sooo tasty, I love it so much!

After Dinner we had a look round some shops, to be honest we didn't really buy a whole lot, we spent most of the day talking and getting to know each other better. I did go to Starbucks twice as well.
So after looking round some shops we met up with Lizzie's boyfriend and  his twin brother, they are so nice as well! Meeting new people is always good :]
So because we met them in Leicester square I asked them if they wanted to go to a Haagen Daz restaurant.
For those of you wondering a Haagen Daz restaurant is basically a desert restaurant, the best kind! aha 

You can make your own, or choose a already set desert.
I made my own, because if you don't want a big one it works out cheaper for you, and I wanted food but I didn't think I could eat that much >< so heres what I had

It is waffle with butterscotch sauce and nut crunch on top, with pralines and cream ice cream, YUM!

Digging in :D!

All in all I had a really fun day, just chatting and walking round shops. I really hoped Lizzie had a good time as well, which she said she did and she is still talking to me so thats a good sign ;D
And I am very much looking forward to seeing her Saturday as well.

Anyways I will do another blog soon, sorry if this one seems a bit rushed but its nearly 1am, my dog is jumping on me and I have to get up early ><!
I am so good with timing!

oh also what do we think of the new blog layout? let me know what you think, I know its kind of simple but I just wanted something a little different for now, I may change it sometime soon I don't know. Well thats all for now, til next time :] x
