Hyper Japan + New Zebra Nails (Pic heavy!!)

I did my nails on Friday, going for 
a 'Misfits' theme from "Jem & the Holograms"! (Any Jem fans on here?!)
After a greuling 4 hours, they were finished 
and this is what they turned out like!

I rushed off to Alex's house as we had to be up really early
the next day to London. 
We'd been invited to model for 'Hyper Japan' - A J-culture
event in London this weekend just gone. My friend Tania
was holding a Street Fashion show, so we were showcasing Gyaru!

Relaxing Sunday + OOTD

Always an oppertunity to dress up!

Cross + Top: tutuHA
Cardi: eBay
Leggings + Booties: Primark
Earrings: Hysteric Glamour

Had to change over my phone tariff today, saving myself £15/month so that's not too shabby!

Also, got me these sexy sunglasses from River Island! I have been scouring places online and offline, UK & Japan for some nice sunnies in this shape; these fit the bill perfectly. They're lightweight, dark tinted and have a cute quilted pattern on the sides. (and were cheap!) So I will take these with me when I go to Tokyo again in summer. I think I will also work them into my coordinate on Saturday at Hyper Japan - if anyone else is going I will see you there~<3

 Also I "invented" a new face.... It's called "I've had way too much Botox/Juvaderm and I'm trying to make Duckface". Hope you enjoywwww.

~Winter Lyme Regis Holiday~

I know that Alex has already posted his entry but I just wanted to cover it a bit and pop in a recommendation for the apartment we stayed in.

 the entry-way
 our lovely living room with awesome French windows
 awesome kitchen with confusing oven :(
our romantic bedroom connecting to the balcony!

When we looked at the apartments and at this particular one's specs, it seemed homely, but we were worried that we had to take the Macbook and attempt to rent a dongle for the internet etc.
It stated that it just had a VHS Player for entertainment, so we were really
Excited and surprised that when we arrived, it had TWO big LCD TVs with full Cable!!, a DVD & BluRay player,
And free internet!! Also the kitchen was pre-stocked with Tea & Coffee etc and cooking basics
Which was extremely useful.
To view and rent the property, click here:

During our trip we went to find fossils along the beach, which was a really nice adventure
Even though it was pretty cold and/or rainy.
 low tide

cut Amonites
I found these!! So proud even though they are not perfect.

 An Xmassy Amonite
 Pretty stairwell
 An Ichthyosaur

We also visited the Lyme Regis museum and an awesome Tea room which were both
Really interesting and lovely.

I cooked a few times during our stay, which was nice to do – like
My FIRST EVER Xmas dinner. We were a bit stumped on what to cook
As we are both Pesketarians; even though Lyme Regis is famous for it’s fish,
The Fish Mongers were closed around then.
So I made several dishes of Chilli & Garlic Prawns, Quorn bits in a Parsley Sauce,
Steamed & Honey-roasted veggies… lol oh and uh.. loads of rice…

The shops were decorated rather epically over the Holiday period.
Freaking fell in love with the Xmas Raptor!!

And all the stuff to do with Dinosaurs everywhere.
HAHAAAAAAAA~! Caveman Santa with his fleet of Dinosaurs!! XD

Alex took most of these pictures but he kindly let me use them <3

I’ve got some (hopefully) interesting entries coming up soon
So stay tuned~!

GGA 2012?! + Valentines Weekend~!

I must apologise that I haven't been posting so often lately.
But I am so, SO pleased that you have stuck by me and there are even some new faces to be seen! *waves to all new followers*

So on Saturday, Ligyaru (Lhouraii) posted the nominees video for her 2nd GGAs (Gaijin Gyaru Awards) she set up last year. 

I really was shocked that I got nominated for "Best Overall Makeup" !! O_O; 
I keep trying my best at achieving the look a lot of Gals strive for, so I am really honoured for coming this far. 

So it would give me great pleasure if you could vote for me in that category when you are making your choices!

Also, after play-fighting in happiness
(Like this)
Alex was nominated in THREE categories! Lucky man! His ones are: "most unique blog", "Best Gyaruo hair" & "Gyaruo- Best use of accessories". If you agree on any of these things, you're more than welcome to go and vote for him too~!

Speaking of Alex, he surprised me really nicely this weekend when I went to his house after work on Friday. As we live roughly 2 hours from each other, we try to make each weekend spent special and worth while. (d'aw...bbllaaurughh ;D)
When I came into his room - there was a gigantic bunch of Freedom & Black Baccara roses with Pink Lillies & little blooms!!! |SRTO|IRTPO|SR (Can't you tell I love flowers?!) and lovely coloured tea lights dotted around~ *sigh*
Then for the weekend we ate junk food and watched a butt-tonne of films!
He also took me to Zizzi's on Saturday night for a lovely dinner between us two, but he only took pictures! ^^;

Happy voting for the GGAs and I would love to know if anyone has anything planned for Valentines tomorrow, or if they celebrated on the weekend - what did you do?!

Weekend in London (seeing Wicked & New Year GETS)

!~Hey Readers~!

I have to apologise for not posting much recently!
I have been planning things and working as much as possible ^^;

Though On Sunday just gone, I travelled up to London to see
two of my best friends, Sam & Steph (They're twins! <3)

(Left: Sam & Right: Steph)

We dropped our bags off at the Travelodge we were staying at and went out to do a little bit of shopping and catch the end of  Chinese New Year. But we forgot it was 5pm, and that England sucks for Sunday opening times ;__; 
So we went to 'EAT.' and got some tea.
I had a Matcha latte <3 

We also decided to take pictures as cats...
Derpy Cats!! XD

After this we were hungry so we had dinner at Bella Italia and went home to plan the next day...

So we woke up at 7am, got ready for 8am and set out the door for Victoria.
(We were staying in the West End) 
it was FUCKING COLD. D8 (Roughly -2c)

So we stood outside the Box Office of the 'Apollo Victoria' theatre with our morning lattes until it opened for the chance of getting front row. The funny thing was that we were the only non-Korean people in the queue.... it was really strange...but fine none the less - we're all mad. 

It paid off though - at 10:03am we managed to buy.....
(for only £27.50 each too!! BARGAIN)

As you may have noticed above - we went somewhere warm for a well-deserved breakfast.
'The Diner' in Soho, one of our favourite places to eat.
I had Blueberry pancakes with extra maple syrup while Sam & Steph had Banana pancakes.
We were so happy to have these LOL.

After some shopping in Picadilly Circus & Oxford Street~ I managed to pick up February's Egg and a new shampoo from L'occitane. 
It came with a "free" JSG collab pouch!
I tried this, this morning and it's not that bad at all! Smells like pulped plants but it makes my hair super clean and bouncy. :)

...That evening...

The doors just had opened at the Apollo and we made our way inside.

I found a secret smiley face which amused me!
Also everything was green! Really cool~<3

I took some photos of the stage when the orchestra were setting up.
These are both the sides/wings of the stage

And here is the Dragon Clock at the top with the call curtain being the map of Oz.

It was an absolutely STUNNING show, and even though we saw the standby actress as Elphaba instead of Rachel Tucker, my god she was extremely professional in her singing and acting and astounded us three and I think the rest of the audience. 
If you have never seen Wicked - I highly recommend it. Mostly a Comedy, with Romance and Sadness/Angst in there too. You'll never want to watch Wizard of Oz again lol.
