Hey guys! Just another small post today. I subscribe to their channel and have started reading JELLY magazine religiously for this one model; Mana Honda. Now, when it comes to gyaru I prefer cuter, preppy, more girly and floral styles like in Popteen and anything I've seen Tsu-chan wear. But Mana isn't exactly gyaru, she's a bit more grown up and while gyaru definately follows trends, she sticks to them to a T.

Well she's become the navigator of an (I'm assuming online only) series that documents her going to different stores all around Tokyo. When I stumbled across the channel she features on called Kawaii.i, she was going about several popular stores in Shibuya 109 looking at the new stock and current trends. I opened up my YT page today to see that another episode has been uploaded and that day she went to a cute and cheap homewares type shop. View the video HERE.

It has cemented my love for Shibuya now lol. I still live at home, but it doesn't stop me from buying cute things to decorate the house!

In just a few short weeks will be going on the biggest shopping trip of my life so far!

Please note, this game is intended for people over the age of 15, as it contains heavy violence, language and blood and gore. If you're not old enough, please do not click!

I just got linked this in an offline message and am unsure as to how I missed it! Gears of War is one of my all time favourite video game series and the final installment is released later on this year. I did watch quite a few videos of E3 this year (live at 3am; lucky I don't have school!) and this, by far, is looking amazing.

Quite a few more 'leaks' and other such information has slipped and many have already watched or been made aware of the ending. I absolutely REFUSE to even google it in case I read or click something that will spoil it all for me. I do know it ends happy, but why would you play a game for several years to an ending that is simply a massacre? Although it would certainly suprise more than a few people hihi!

Slow updates today, as my Mum is feeling quite ill and I'm going to look after her. When I do get back will be posting a few images of how I've currently organised my room. I was going to do these when I first moved into the new house, but it's never really gotten past 'refugee' style clean status. I'm happy to report I tidied it over the weekend and it look liveable!

Happier and healthier times when I was a medium-ish blonde. Was road testing a new foundation that had a higher SPF and the flash has made me look ghostly!

Popteen August Issue!

Download the new issue here!

Today was quite a nice day. The BFF and I went into town to shop at the main mall and look at a few anime shops. I try to avoid them as much as I can as I always spend more money then I should hihi.

Me, the BFF and my roommate as the red lipstick brigade!

Her trying out my hair extensions. She recently bought her own set from the same seller as myself.

I didn't even spend terribly much. We had lunch and walked around browsing the shops until our feet started to hurt. I found so many cute things, but instead just bought 2 sets of velcro hair curlers. Doing an experiment to see if these are better to achieve gyaru curls instead of relying on heat to style.

New Hair Colour!

I'm now officially a light golden brown. Maybe being a brunette will make me smarter? Hihi

Milky Bunny

Just a quick shout out for Tsu-chan's new MV called Bunny Days. At first listen it seemed average,but its growing on me pretty fast.

Isn't it really cute? I couldn't help noticing how her nails made me think of Dolly Wink and Candy Doll hihi. Shopping soon!

OMG! Guess who are on the front cover of the newest issue of Ray magazine?
(view here)

SNSD! They were the girls who first got me into listening to kpop and I haven't looked back. I was so excited to see them on the front cover, but I don't know japanese so I can't read the article :(

I am currently in the middle of watching Boys of Flowers again and also Personal Taste. Is it obvious who my favourite k-drama actor is? Hihi.

Doing a fresh set of gel nails tomorrow and will be making a cutesy pink pair to show off on the blog.

No photos of any recent happenings as I've lost my camera cord again. But I'm on a mission to find it!

New Anime!

Hello all! Back on the blogging bandwagon to bring you a new anime that I've become enraputered with called Yumeiro Patissiere. It's a very shojo, girly anime about 14 year old Amano Ichigo as she follows her dream of becoming a patissiere. Personally, I have fallen for this anime really hard! It's just so cute and yummy that I always bake sweets after watching it.

In the middle of more housing applications and I've spent more time on the phone these last couple days then I have the entire year! But all references and the like have been contacted and now it's just a matter of waiting for the final OK. I'm so excited and on the verge of prayer we get it for one major reason; I could make a room into my own walk in wardrobe! It wouldn't fit my makeup, but it would mean having a place for my clothes and shoes.

Off now to go and do my nails. I recently got all the materials to do my own gel nails and it's the night to also do my own glittertips. But the only glitter I have is my MAC Relfects Pink glitter, so maybe I should wait? I'll see how it all goes and upload my efforts tomorrow morning.

xoxo Julia
