Round & Round like a Horse on a Carousel...

It's amazing how your clothes can affect your mental and physical state; as soon as I put on a cute dress I suddenly feel very positive and princess-y, and that's exactly how I felt when I put on my new Liz Lisa dress from Kawaii Gyaru Shop*. Gosh I can't tell you how in awe I am of it - I mean, look at that print! Let's all just take a moment to appreciate how beautiful it is.
All of my Liz Lisa is beautiful but this one has by far topped it. Sorry, my other Liz Lisa clothes, but it looks like I'm going to try and wear this as many times as I can. Luckily it's been getting so hot in the UK so hopefully that will happen! 

One of my best friend's, Amy, was having a birthday tea party and I just couldn't resist wearing this dress. I mean come on, a tea party, you can't get anymore princess-y than that. I kept my fingers crossed that it wouldn't rain and luckily it didn't, and I had such a great day. We drank tea, ate scones with jam and cream, and took lots of photos! I actually prefer these kind of gatherings to the partying type - I just get so exhausted with all that drinking that I'll only last an hour at a nightclub. Oops.

What's in my bag?

I have never actually done one of these posts before because a) my bags tend to be pretty messy and b) I'm such a chameleon so I rarely use the same bag for more than a week. I change bags depending on my outfit, and most of the time they're stashed in a corner somewhere with a pile of forgotten receipts (update: I have now tidied that corner and there are no more receipts, yay!).

I really wanted to do one this time especially because now I can finally bring out my prettier bags as the weather is warmer. I just love my My Melody bag* - I'm a huge fan of Sanrio and My Melody is one of my favourite characters alongside Hello Kitty and Little Twin Stars.

Koakuma Ageha: Agejo Buys & Outfits

Oops, I did it again... I bought more MA*RS.
I didn't mean for it to happen - I found myself yearning for their newer collections after finding peace with the fact that they're toning down, and before I knew it I bought a few pieces. I managed to sell a few of my old collections to justify buying new things, and I didn't feel bad for it. Their older collections just don't have the same effect on me like they used to, and I haven't been able to wear them because they're unsuitable for work.

I was good and didn't buy too much, but as soon as my items arrived I had to wear them right away. The weather has improved so much over here and it was finally time to wear pretty dresses! Aside from MA*RS I bought a DaTuRa top and several things from the Sanrio store, and I also bought a dress that's perfect for the kyabajo style but I had forgotten to take a picture of it! However I do have pics of me wearing it which you'll see after some pics of my buys.

Bourjois Colour Boost "Peach on the Beach" Lip Crayon Review

bourjois colour boost peach on the beach review

I recently added Bourjois' Colour Boost "Peach on the Beach" Lip Crayon to my beauty collection to celebrate the coming of spring. I haven't really experimented with lip crayons before, but I do have a couple already and I must say that I hands-down prefer them to lip gloss and lipstick. They're just so much easier to apply and comes in so many colours!

I knew I had to get this one because of the colour. It was love at first sight when I saw it being displayed on the shelf so I instantly picked it up and bought it there and then. I've always wanted to try out peach tones after seeing some onee gyaru like Sayoko Ozaki pulling it off so well, and I was kind of getting bored of pink shades. I wear this as much as I wore my "nude" lip crayon! It also works really well with pink blusher which is a huge surprise as those two don't normally work well together. I have really dark lips so the fact that a little bit of colour shops up on my lips is a miracle!

Himekaji in Oxford

The other weekend I took a trip to the beautiful town of Oxford to meet up with my friend Lee, and we couldn't have picked a better day for it. It was the hottest day we've had all year and it was so sunny! I loved it. I felt like I could just close my eyes and enjoy the delicate sunshine on my shoulders and ended up having a really blissful day. We were two himekaji (casual princesses) strolling through the little lanes, spotting lots of pretty buildings, and relaxing in Christ Church meadow... But the sunshine didn't last (typical of British weather) and it started pouring it down with rain, so we sought shelter in a hotel restaurant to have some cream tea before heading to Lee's house for film-and-face-mask time. Ever After which is now my favourite Cinderella adaptation!
