New hairstyle ~

Hi dear readers! How are you all doing today? ^^
I am really great as I finally went to the hairdresser's \(^o^)/ In the post in which I told I was finally back from my holidays, I told you to really not pay attention to my hair, as it was a hot mess... So literally the next day I had my appointment at Kinki kappers. I was really nervous, since I did not exactly know what I wanted and had only brought some inspirational pics for them to work with:










As you can see I wanted something really different, more bold and edgy and suiting for the look I want for myself! Unfortunately I had to tell them I could not die my hair in really cool colours, as I will be starting my internship next week and they don't tolerate very out of the box looks T^T So I wanted to stick with browns and blonds and make it look a bit more 'natural'...

Unfortunately they misunderstood, so when I gave them these pictures and instructions, they understood I really wanted something natural. They did give me side bangs, which I have wanted for a Long time now, but they just died my hair in two tones of brown whcih are so close together you can't even tell the difference if you know // I was really disappointed by that! But well I am just going to let my hair rest for a little now and than try again ^o^ !

Here's the result for now:


Hihi only after the foto I realised my nails kind of match the phone cover XD (And no make I know :$) I think it's still kinda cute, how do you like it? I'll be trying to style it with the length like this first and mabe later try extensions if it doesn't work.


Much Love!

Review: 8th sin creations

Just before I left for my holidays, I got a package from this sweet little store in te UK called 8th sin creations, this is their website. I got this creepy cute lucky pack, so I could make them  review ^^

 


There were so many cool things in it!All jewelry is made of plastic figures attached to chains. The owner of the shop thinks up and creates evereything by herself (or so I thought). The skeleton necklace in the picture above is my favorite item! ^^ I call him Mr. Bones XD




Don't you just love these cute ear rings? I used them for the last football match The Netherlands played, since our colour is orange -.^


So on to the reviewing part:

Service : 5/5

I got the lucky pack while talking the details over  in FB messages. They were very nice and professional. There was even room for chitchat ^^ They responded fast to questions and it felt very nice and personal! Plus on top of the great collection of items the store sells, they also have room for admissions, so you can design your own piece of jewelry togethernwith them ! I just love this!

Shipping : 5/5

The store ships free in UK and with normal posting rates to the rest of the world. They ship the same day you purchased or the next day if it's after post hours, so you get your items as fast as possible. All Items in the lucky pack were packaged seperately with a business card, which looked really cute but did use so much more packaging! However seen as the luckypack was not what they normally do, 'll overlook it ;)

Quality/cost: 5/5

All te jewelry in of pretty good quality and very low in price AND handmade. I just love that, as it makes all pieces so much more unique than the H&M stuff.

I would definitely buy some of this shop again and can't wait to make coords ! The shop sells so completely different things, anybody should find something they like.


Much Love!

New blog lay-out

I'm back ! \(^o^)/ And going to the hairdressers tomorrow, finally, so don't mind the messy hair please :P


Actually I have been back for almost a week now, but I was kinda busy.. And I wanted to first make the new blog lay-out and than start posting again.
The old lay-out really sucked in my opinion and was done really fast, so it desperately needed an update. This is still a work in progress, but up until now I am happy with the results ^^

Get ready for some new posts , because I have tons of new inspiration now!

Much Love!

Gyaru for beginners series: Glamaxon

Time for another typical beginners post, since that's actually what this blog is supposed to be all about (sorry if I get a bit of track sometimes :$). I'm not sure if you heard already or not, but Taylor from Glamaxon is making a series of posts about gyaru for beginners! It is so great, because she explains in detail what to pay attention to and how to choose f.e. lenses so us noobs will have it a lot easier ^^

The first was about choosing the right Circle Lenses, you can find it here. I thought it was great how she explains about the different designs and how they blend in with your eyes, when they are dark or light, and the different sizes of lenses.


For me it is very difficult to choose lenses, as my eyes are very light and usually CL are designed for people with dark brown eyes. But now I found that the firework kind of designs would suit me well ^o^ so much easier! 

After reading the post I decided to look for new lenses and found two great ones: EOS Ice Blue and EOS Ice Violet:

Which colour do you like best? Oh, I can't decide!

The second post was about choosing and applying fake lashes, this is here. It as all about the different designs and how to apply, very nice for us babygals ^^ 


For this she didn't really have tips of what to choose, though since it comes down to personal fvorites.. I think I like the spiked lashes the best, they work very well with rokku in my opinion:


So what do you think of the Gyaru For Beginners series? I think it's really nice someone takes the time to lay this all out for us! When starting there is just so much to look into, it can really be too much @.@ Anyhow, there are more posts coming so keep an eye out for them.

Much Love!

Mini Gal meet

So I planned my first Gal meet ! Towards summer everybody is always really busy, but we did really want to have a meet-up for a new mamber of our Dutch Gyaru group.. So I decided to take this much wanted distraction to plan a lunch/ shopping session/ drinks day for her to meet some of us ^^ Here are some of the pictures of the first part of that day, the lunch!


Haha the lighting in the restaurant was really bad, so we didn't really take pictures in there only in the bathroom :P The new girl (even newer than me) is the girl on the left, Sharon. She was really sweet and enthousiastic! I hope she will want to be a real gal ^^




We also made some selfies in front of the restaurant. I am really bad at selfies, because I never make them myself and you really need practice for them XD As you can see, we only had lunch with the four of us, but after lunch Amber and Jojo joined us for a little shopping and some drinks. We tried to make a group pic, which nobody was really happy with, and forgot to try again and retake it :$ I am going to share it with you guys anyways, because now you can see everyone's full outfits:


I look really weird in it, because I was not supposed to wear my jacket and my belt had somehow shifted up without me noticing T^T I really loved Jojo's and Amber's outfits, they looked so cute! I am not going to show you the shopping we did, as we only really but stuff at Hunkemoller ;) But a little tip: They have awesome garters and stockings!

This meeting was somewhat smaler than the normal meets, but it was actually really nice to be able to talk to everyone one-on-one^^ As I am new as well, I dont know everybody yet either, though I had talked to Lenie and Zoe before I had never really had the oppurtunity to talk more to Amber and Jojo, but they were sooo nice \(^o^)/

I am Looking forward to the next meeting already! Let me know what you think about my meeting posts? I am never sure what you want to see or hear!
Much Love!
