AV Gyaru magazines

So this post I am making, just for anyone out of interest. 

I help my boyfriend with his Japanese Porn Company 
(they sell Hentai Doujinshi, Male sex toys, Artbooks, Badges, and now AV magazines)
and this was the main reason I went back to Tokyo this summer. 

I know quite a few western Gals admire or just like looking at these
Kuro-gyaru AV girls (Including myself) and I wanted to show you 
some of the magazines they show up in! 

I bought these two just from regular Combini stores. 
(Newdays & Lawson)

Tokyo Gals Collection
Is a small-sized but absolutely packed magazine! It contains a lot of the 
KIRA☆KIRA actresses and has quite a bit of promotion for them too.
What I found completely awesome was that you get TWO DVDS! 
On which, some scenes were in full - so it's definitely worth the £4.20
I paid for it.
The photography is really clear, and the censoring isn't that bad. 
It's all in white, but it's "clean-cut". 
Kokoa here in that bloody nice bra! I want one XD
A cool Article/interview with guys, on Types of Sexy Gyaru! haha!
it reads (L-R): Ageha-kei, Gal mama, Shiro-gal, Kuro-gal, Gal-kei
...GYARU MAMA?! Watch out gyaru-mama's - They want to recruit you ;D 

I absolutely prefer this magazine. The layout and Gals featured are really cool
and they even have a halarious - Readers' Corner... that's right -
Every month, a couple can write in, and then you get to star in the magazine
doing dirty things with your lover. HAHA. it's brilliant. 

Kyaba Gyaru!
This magazine is a little bigger than T.G.C and a lot more expensive.
(£6.20) - I think mainly this is to do with the glossy pages and larger format.
However I didn't feel the content was as good. :( 
Cocona (Now, Serina) was featured on the front! yay, this is why I got it, lol.
Her face isn't that sexy here, haha, but I needed to make the picture SFW XD
Reo in her awesome D.I.A outfit! 
But as you can see in the top-left, the censoring looks like someone attacked the
pictures in MS Paint... the shapes are pretty amusing though. 
A normally-Kyaba-gyaru Actress gets picked for a
"Bukkake Festival" - oh, how lucky!
The most disappointing of this magazine, is that it only came with ONE DVD
compared to T.G.C (mostly highlights, too D: ), and there also was a huge Black&White section
in the middle. The phototography was pretty high-contrast as well.
But it was the same thickness as T.G.C so I guess that extra
odd 200yen is the amount of extra paper. 

These were both the August 2011 editions. If anyone wants me to scan them
or upload the DVDs just say so in the comments and I will try my best.

Hope you enjoyed this random little insight!

I Want Lens Review: Super Crystal Pink & Flower Plum Brown

So I want to thank my new readers that I have noticed recently, 
You are all so very appreciated! m(*-_-*)m

I hope you enjoy this little review.

I ordered the two pairs last Monday night, and asked a few 
questions, directly, to the lovely shop owner through their
"live chat" system. Brilliant idea!

Everything was processed by Tuesday morning and they arrived
on Thursday! Such fast arrival and excellent service. 
nicely packaged, lol at all the stamps O_O;

Inside the larger packet, was a flyer for the website and this smaller packet!
(I also got a little free cake charm, but I haven't got a pic for it D: )

and obviously, Inside were my lovely contact lenses.
They look so pretty! 

The wear of them
Slightly odd-looking photo, but here is the pink on the Left,
with the brown on the right. 
The pink is slightly larger, but both I give 5/5 for enlargening effect.

I wore the brown lenses all day today, and they are super comfortable.
Only when it hit 8pm today did my eyes get dry. 

The pink ones I need to wear for a day, definitely. When I tried it on though,
there was only the slightest bit of discomfort, I think, because they were bigger
to what I was used to wearing.

I think I will be ordering and pre-ordering from them 
from now on! Fantastic service and products. 
And not to mention the price - with free shipping
and amazing sale prices, I wanted to buy one of everything!! 
Thank you,!

My Gal Birthday Party + Gets!


I should finally post about my party that was held on Saturday...

Alex, Dom, Fran and I met at 12 in Victoria station 
and headed out to Picadilly - it was pretty bloody warm
for a weather forecast that was apparently going to be "rain".
Unexpectedly, we also met this awesome guy called Toby at the station, 
who was interested in becomming Gyaruo! So I invited him along to my
party to get to know people, and also, uncannily, we had the same birthday!

Anyway, everyone was all dolled up and we waited for Chris to arrive.
And as usual, It just happened that a GIANT CROWD of Japanese 
students (like, Uni students) all flocked past us, staring and smiling, and some
in mild shock lol. 

Then we went to Costa to chat and get some noms 
Fran, Dom and Chris - YAY!

Alex and Myself. I look strange in this picture...

Then we met up with Toby again and my other friend Alex, we went to do
some Purikura. Ahh the ONE machine of London...

I Also took a set with Toby and his friend Abi!
I was wearing my Miratan set from MA*RS!

Then we met up with lots of wonderful Gals and some of my friends
from Brighton and headed to Wagamama for dinner!

The party table! Sorry the compressed rate is AWFUL.

Also, Alex brought his new Checki camera along, so we took some cute photos
and decorated them with good ol' Posca.

Ahh such a fun day. Then it was time to go home....
Smexy outfits!

Right, now onto the gets!
I bought Ranzuki in the Japan Centre
Haven't bought it in years, and omg. Halarious article on stereotyping "bad girls"
XD but it's so true. If anyone else that's read it agrees, I'd love to know yo' favourite.

Lianne got me this gorgeous Marie bag charm! i am so happy!

The wonderful Tasha bought me lots of Lush stuff!! I am totally using this asap!

And my ma' got me a cute PinkxBlack Kitty-chan sandwich box.

I will show what I got myself, and my card collection in another post haha this is so long! XD
I'm off to work now (on my birthday, I know right? awful lol)

Sakurina Monochrome Makeup Tutorial (adapting Japanese makeup to western eyes)

Afternoon Readers

I have a makeup tutorial for you today!

(I am gonna apologise for these slightly low-quality pictures
but they were taken with the inside camera of my iPhone
mostly so I could see how much of a fool I looked like.)

I will show you one way here, of adapting Japanese makeup 
onto Western Eyeshapes so it will still look like in the pictures.

So let's get on with it! 

First, choose what makeup you want to do
I am doing this cute monochrome look by Sakurina
Now, Sakurina aims for a Almond-shaped eye usually with her
eye makeup-drop, which in general is the desired Western shape. 
Therefore, it's very easy to adapt to Western eyes!

Happy Job Times!

Just wanted to do a separate post for this

Here is my little outfit for today, 
my first training day for my new job at EDF!! 

Ahhh... I am such a dork for posing.
Anyway, outfit rundown:
Top: MA*RS
Shorts: Primark
Tights: Accessorize
Shoes: DreamV

Anyway, yeah, so today's training was all about learning
how the company is now mostly Nuclear-based, how they 
want to further its sustainability for the World and how 
they buy Electricity & Gas and sell it onto customers.
(Thrilling, eh?) But it was a nice day. We got to make posters. 8D
