Kpop post #1

Right, so here goes my first Kpop post ^^
I friggin' LOVE this song. The video is really cute and sad too :( Son Ho Young is a really good singer and not that bad looking either. I highly recommend this song. I just have soo much love for it.

This is an Anyband CM for a phone. However, there's just something about this that has stuck with me. There are 2 songs in the video, both equally as awesome. Anyband is made up of: BoA, Kim Junsu, Tablo, Jin Bora.... think that's it. The name of one of the songs TPL (Talk Play Love) has influenced me a lot lol, i think it's a perfect way to live. Communicate, Have fun and Love as much as possible. I have used this a lot as usernames~ but i do plan to have it tatooed after Uni.

I haven't listened to Kim Jong Kook in a long time, but this song is just soo nice. It's easy to listen to and the video is super adorable~ I might have to start listening to all his old songs again.

New phone case and explanation

I wanted to explain why I've been posting in Japanese lately. It can be annoying and I'm sorry. I've been a bit behind in Japanese classes lately so I need to practice as much as I possibly can. I'll meet you guys who can't read it half way and I'll write a translation underneath the Japanese from now on.

So, I got my new iPhone case today, all the way from Hong Kong. (gotta love eBay) it's soo cute, my iPhone has ears now hehe. It raises up around the screen which is good cause I don't want to scratch it ^^

Me and some friends practiced soo much last night, we even ended up singing it in different styles. Anime theme tune, Disney etc My friend Laura has such a sexy bishonen voice lol. Got to go home and pack in a bit, leaving for London at 1:30pm tomorrow. Going to china town and Japan centre with my brother, it's gonna be awesome :D! Xx

Jpop post #1 (jpop-ish)

Here's a very upbeat song that i've been listening to loads lately. The video's really cute. 

And this is from BIG BANG, so i don't know whether it should be classed as Jpop. But it's in Japanese so that counts. I just LOVE this song. I could listen to it over and over again. And of couse BIG BANG are awesome.

Then there's this song from KARA, I think they're also Korean. But it's in Japanese so there xP. I think this songs very fitting for this time of year and it's cute too~

So that's 3 videos for now, the next music post'll probably be Kpop :) Hope you like and enjoy~

Music Posts.

I've decided that from now on, perhaps every weekend, I will share some of my favourite Japanese and Korean songs :) Youtube links of course~ I'll start asap ^^

Blog Makeover (In progress)

I figured that it's about time I gave the blog a bit of a makeover. It needed a revamp. I'm not quite sure what i'm going to do with it, but I'm hoping for a new title header, plus layout and colour scheme. I want to add extra info boxes on the page to, so that there will be more to read / do.

I will hopefully have these changes complete by the end of December, so please bear with me. And if there are any suggestion about what you want to see, please dont hesitate to comment ^^

H&M haul

So, I know I promised photos from my H&M haul, but unfortunately I haven't recieved my second parcel from them yet. Due soon though ^^. So anyways, this is related, cause these are from H&M too~ And I'm absolutely in love with them.

This is the softest jumper I own. And it's super cute, they also have a Bambi and Thumper one... but Minnie is awesome. Since I dyed my hair Red, i've been drawn to more red clothes. I just team this up with a pair of black tights / leggings and my new grey fluffy boots. If it's a bit chilly i'll pop a vest top underneath, but it's sooo comfy. ^^ 

I love wearing this skirt. It's a high rise one, but it's loosely elasticated so it can be placed wherever. I like to wear it with black tights, a dark coloured (grey/navy/brown) vest top and a black cardigan.

I'm very happy with these purchases from H&M. They have some really great stuff in at the moment, I'm just drawn to spend money that I shouldn't. But on the plus side, i'll have some really great clothes to take to Japan with me. Cause I feel that it's going to be hard for me to find clothes there...

Nails for the week

It's been a while since I've done some nail art, they've just been painted one colour recently. But, yesterday, I found the time to be creative. And this was the result. Not my best I know, but it'll do ^o^

My heart lies in Kyoto

I've been thinking about my Year Abroad a lot recently, and where I want to go.
I don't want to go anywhere but Kyoto. It means a lot to be and holds a place in my heart. I have wanted to go there and felt connected to it for over 3 years now and there is no where else.
I really really want to spend my year in Japan there, however, it's been known that our place of choice gets ignored in the allocation of Universities.
I did put Kyoto down and my reasons why, but it's not 100% that i'd get it. There are 3 Universities we are paired with there. And it would make my year, and me soo happy if i was to get Kyoto.
I should find out in 2 weeks or so, and i will definitely let you all know. As well as getting to work on a new blog to cover my year in Japan.
As for now... i will be hoping with all my heart for Kyoto, and practising my language skills.

What are you looking forward to?

Going to Japan next year. I'll be able to improve my language skills, make new friends and just enjoy Japan. :D

Haul 5th [Part 1] & Japan 2012

Just ordered a bunch of stuff from H&M as i've finally managed to save some money for myself this month. Unfortunately the delivery dates are different for a few of the items. But that means more parcels in the post ^^ which is always nice. I'll show you the items when i get them :)

Been busy with Uni a lot lately. (as you can see by my lack of posting in the past few months) I find out which Japanese university i'm going to in a few weeks.... can't wait ^^ When that comes round, i'll be setting myself up a travel blog for when i'm out there~ I'll still try and post gyaru and cute things on here, but i'd recommend you follow that one once it's up and going :D ahhhhh it's sooo exciting.

(This is the form we have to write in. If i could be bothered, i'd switch it to plain form... but alas I have a Japanese Literature essay to write.)

Last Day 最後の日

(I'd fine tune and write loads, but can't be bothered xD)

So anyways, it was the last day of being a first year student. I still have exams left though. 2 Japanese, 1 Economy. Probably another Economy too (Chinese Economy [a retake])

I'm going to miss my class from this year. We're all like a little family haha a lot has happened this year. (I'll post my Japanese essay about my first year. It'll be in Japanese though, so sorry to those who can't read it.) I can remember my first class~ ahh memories ^^

Rice Cooker's are amazing.

My mum bought me a Rice Cooker for Easter and I haven't stopped using it since it was delivered.
Because I don't like using the kitchen in my student flat, i've been cooking everything in it. Experimenting as much as possible.

For example, at the moment i'm cooking this vegetable soup in it:

So far, I've cooked bacon, mini beef burgers, spaghetti bolognese, soup, mac cheese, rice. etc in it. It's a really cheap way to make food, and on the plus side, saves washing up. I've seen a few blogs around that have recipes and reviews on meals made in a rice cooker, and they've been very helpful. But i usually can't afford much meat, so i have to find alternatives to the recipes. (plus i'm not a big fan of fish.)

yum yum xx

Mini Boots Haul. Home highlighting?

I got my money today, so decided to buy myself some things from boots. A new mascara, I've never tried this one before, I always have the purple one from Maybelline because I know it works for me. I'll give this one a go and let you know how it turns out.

I needed more moisturiser. And I need to rehighlight my hair, so being as i'm trying to save money, i'm going to do it myself. First time trying this guys, so it could quite possibly go incredibly wrong haha. we'll see.

I'll take before and after shots etc so I can show you what happened :P

Final hair (was a while ago now though)

Here's what my hair looked like when I finally got all of the blonde done.

Trying not to laugh in that last one :)

As you can see I haven't been wearing Gyaru make up recently. I'm out of practice, it's been a while since i've been gyaru at all. I've just faded out of it, but i'm on my way back guys, don't you worry.

My hair's kinda growing out at the moment. I really need to get it done again, I hate my ginger roots lol I literally have no money at the moment, so it'll have to wait for a bit.

I'm going to plan some blogs to do so that I don't fade off the radar again. I've missed you all~

Have you been able to keep your New Years resolutions or have you broken them?

I usually break them, but this year i've been sticking to most of them. I always break the 'eat healthier' and 'workout more' ones though.

Ask me anything

Quick Question Everyone.

Anyone be up for a swap?

Like make up a box of little things and we'll send them to each other. You must love opening presents as much as I do.

This is just a suggestion. Want to see if anyone is interested before I go ahead and start collecting things together.

Wouldn't be anything too big. But you can put things in it like make up, accessories, food, stickers, personal letter, things like that~

Leave a comment and tell me what you think. :)

It didn't post, so here it is.

Who are your favorite Gyaru Idols? Are they western?

I don't really have any specific favourites. But i like Tsubasa, Tsuji Nozomi, Kumickky, Crea.

I don't know many Western Gyarus, but if you could recommend any :) x

What's the first thing you check when you turn on your computer?

Facebook :)

Ask me anything

Guess who's back?

Hey guys, I know it's been a really long time, but i've been busy with Uni work.
Japanese is sooo much harder than I thought it was.
Anyways, I'm going to try and update atleast TWICE a week now.
Maybe more, cause it's easter.

New Hair

I had my hair highlighted, so now it's less orange and more blonde. I'm going to have more blonde put through it on Thursday, which should look good ^o^

I need to get my make up sorted out, as i've sort of drifted away from the Gyaru style I was and now i'm trying to incorporate it with a rock-ier edge. Dark makeup, black clothes etc.

I have a tonne of new buys over the past few weeks while I've been home. I'll take photos and show you ^o^

I may be giving the blog a make over at some point too~
