Crazy Bat Lady

Halloween is here. As soon as the clock struck 12am on October 1st I was bringing out all of my Halloween decorations and the rest of my rokku gyaru wardrobe. Not that I had much of a chance to channel dark witchy vibes - it's been so cold lately that I've been wearing chunky sweaters that had hidden any hint of witchy goodness.

The past couple of weeks have been heaven for me; all of the UK brands were bringing out their Halloween collections as well as the local supermarkets. A friend had asked if I was shopping for Halloween when they peeked at my screen but I secretly admitted that it was more for everyday wear. Another friend gave me these awesome pair of bat tights, and that together with my bat headband and vampire top I became the crazy bat lady.

Beauty Reviews: NYX, Urban Decay & Too Faced

I first learnt about contouring when I found out about gyaru nearly 5 (or perhaps 6) years ago. Little did I know that it would become a huge part of my makeup routine - now I wouldn't dream about wearing makeup without it.

But I was getting bored. Truth is, I've been using the same type of contouring palette over the past few years because I got comfortable with Sleek. Now every brand has one, so there's a lot to choose from! On my shopping trip with Fii & Han I found this NYX contouring palette, and what attracted me the most was that it was refillable, had so many shades and was cruelty-free! I've been tracking down cruelty-free brands (as mentioned in a previous blog post) and a few weeks prior I picked up some lipsticks from Urban Decay and received another from Too Faced for my birthday.

One Item Five Ways: Acid-Washed Jeans

acid washed jeans outfits

Acid-washed jeans are the best things to jazz up a simple outfit; every time I feel like I'm in a slump I just slip on a pair of these babies and it instantly improves my mood. I haven't been wearing it lately because it's been unusually hot in the U.K. (the horror) but I just can't wait for it to get a little cooler so that I can whack them on!

So while I patiently wait for that day to come I have decided that it was time to do another one of my "One Item Five Ways" posts. I really look forward to doing these, and I guess I could class them as a series now! If there's anything you would like to see me experiment with then please let me know in the comments below.

Lizzie Loves: Gyaru Autumn/Winter Collections 2016!

I think that this is the first time I've actually been looking forward to Autumn; I guess that our summer over here was pretty bad and a mixture of super hot days and miserable, rainy days, that I'd rather have it just miserable because at least then it's kind of predictable. Another reason could be that I'm really, really looking forward to Halloween! I've already began purchasing some Halloween decor to jazz my room up.

The coming of Autumn also means that shops are bringing out their Autumn/Winter collections - this already started at the end of August but I decided to wait a little bit until their full collection is out. And now the time has come and I've put together a few of my favourites!

Koakuma Ageha October 2016 Mag Scans

ane ageha gyaru magazine

It seems like the world of gyaru is making a comeback - Ageha has returned with a new October issue. The front cover has all of that glitz and sparkles that it used to back in the day, with Sakurina looking like an absolute goddess on the front.

As soon as I saw it online I knew I had to snap it up, and a couple of weeks later it had arrived on my doorstep. I was so happy! I used to buy gyaru magazines all of the time but then they got discontinued and all but Ane Ageha remained. Koakuma Ageha (a.k.a Ageha) seems to be making a slow comeback though, which is amazing and I hope other magazines will follow suit! I instantly sat down and flicked through it, and even though I can't read a word of Japanese (oops) I still found it extremely interesting, so I decided to share some of my favourite pages with you!
