Kogal inspired look

 Hey there 🥰 I’m on my phone for this post so I can’t have all my cute emojis, but I wanted to share today’s outfit!! 



All the full face pictures I had were weird looking lmao. But I’ve been trying liner just on the inner corner and outer wing part of my eye and I love it!! It makes it a lot easier to preserve my extensions as well. 


Clearly, this isn’t meant to be an exact replica of a Kogal look or anything. I mainly just used what I have and like wearing to make an outfit with that same sort of vibe ~ I recently got the skirt and sweater for this outfit and I’ve been wearing the skirt as much as possible 😂 it makes me feel so cute! The sweater is by Tralala, the leopard pattern has little hearts! 🥺 and of course I’m wearing my bling crocs. 


This week I totally broke down and bought two Larme magazines after talking to a friend who also really likes them 😂 I promised myself no more spending after that. Lol. I’ve been into the styles current Mars, honey cinnamon, and similar stores have been putting out and I got some fabric to make skirts inspired by that! I’m so excited for the future of my fashion. I’m really feeling so good exploring everything that interests me and expressing myself 🥰🥰



See you later!

Recent looks and new makeup

 Hi! Today I want to share some looks from last week and some makeup I bought from E.l.f!





I'm obsessed with these boots because they look just like Kaede's from Gal and Dino, lol ♥‿♥


I recently discovered Guess (✿ ♥‿♥) and I'm sooo in love! I got this and another tank, some jewelry and a mini backpack when I went to the outlet mall last week!


I've been loving Kpop outfits recently! I'm also really happy I finally found an easy way to put all my hair up. It actually all stays in the buns and I don't have to clip any of my hair up like I do with a ponytail or bun! 



Yesterday my boyfriend and I went out for dinner and drinks with one of our friends! I've been doing my makeup similar to a picture from Ageha I posted in my last post, and I love how pretty and soft it is ★~(◡‿◡✿) 




This was my look from today! I wanted to make a cute priness-y outfit to go to painting class! (✿ ♥‿♥)



E.l.f gets!!


I got these from Elf last week! I wasn't really happy with the results I was getting from using a pencil and mascara on my brows and I noticed a lot of Japanese gal models were using powder. Mine is one pan of powder and the other one is brow gel. It also comes with a little double ended brush that's the prefect width for filling in brows. One side is a regular flat angled brush for the gel, and the other end is a more fluffy and flexible which is really good for the powder. I got mine in the shade Ash and it's a perfect fit for me! I'm also wearing the eyeshadow and brow products in the pictures above!


These are the swatches from the Prism eyeshadow palette and the lip gloss! I really love these shadows, and it reminds me of the shadows in the inspo pic I've been going off of. They're all really pretty shimmers that aren't too dark or intense. A lot of them are similar shades, but that's really what I wanted for a soft princess-y look. I really liked everything, and they gave me a few one use free samples too! 



I also wanted to write a little about my mental health! I have really enjoyed blogging and even though I still get anxiety over if I "fit in" to a category of fashion, I realized that isn't what's most important to me. I had been putting a lot of pressure on myself to be "more gal" or "gal enough" (◡﹏◡✿) and it was making my anxiety really bad because I would avoid posting and be worried all day I wasn't good enough for other people because I didn't fit into a specific style. But now I realize that I don't have to just wear only one kind of fashion, and I am giving myself the freedom to just enjoy what I enjoy like I did before I was online! I enjoy so many looks and fashions, and life is too short to limit myself for the sake of an aesthetic. I hope that no one else is struggling like that, but if you are I hope this helps and encourages you to follow your heart  ✿◕ ‿ ◕✿




See you next time!

Ageha Makeup Inspo ~

 Hey! Today I wanted to share some makeup inspo from the newest Ageha. I'm totally obsessed with it and I look at it like every other day (✿ ♥‿♥)





First, this was my work outfit today! I wore my crocs with all the pretty charms I put on them last night, and my shirt is from my friend Mayu's shop, it's called Sweetheart Yun on Etsy! ★~(◠‿◕✿)

This is the first edition of the new Ageha! I highly suggest you support Ageha directly by buying this magazine if you can! For that reason I won't be scanning everything, just my favorites ★~(◡△◕✿) Btw, you can click on these pictures to see them larger!







The last look (two tutorials of it for whatever reason) is my favorite \( ̄▽ ̄;)/ It's so soft and pretty, and I also just bought that Dior face palette with some sephora money I had! 

I think it's really interesting how a lot of these looks only use eyeliner on the outer and inner corners, skipping the actual eyelid. I use at home extensions, and honestly I think not having to remove eyeliner right next to them makes them last a little longer, especially since I'm no expert lol. It is a lot lighter than something you'd see in Egg or Nuts, but I love how princess-y these looks are. Honestly, Ageha is just a work of art and you should totally buy it so you can appreciate it in it's full glory v(⌒o⌒)v♪

Make, Outfits, Gal Life

 Hey! (✿◠‿◠) If you follow me on instagram, you'll know that I've decided to blog instead of being on instagram (at least for a while) It's already been so good for my mental health and i've done a lot more of the things I enjoy (。♥‿♥。)

Anyways, here's a collection of looks, outfits, and random things from the past month or so!





This was a Kpop inspired look I did for a change!

And then here are just some casual gal looks I took from Ageha and Nuts ♥‿♥ I'm having a huge Ageha boom right now, lol. I can't wait for them to release more magazines! 


This was from a Sailor Mars inspired look I did! I am so proud of these nails ★~(◠ω◕✿)




The other part of my kpop look, I got the H&M BlackPink sweatshirt and necklace!



These were two of my favorite gal looks recently! (✿ ♥‿♥) 



Ok so I've been having an obsession with crocs recently, and I just got these charms in the mail today from amazon! I love how the crowns look like the Juicy Couture logo ☆(❁‿❁)☆


I took some time today to decorate part of my bedroom! Decorating is something I promised myself I would do more since I've been living here since spring and never decorated yet! I love how my minnie ears look on the wall and now I can actually appreciate them when I'm not at the parks!


This was totally an unexpected purchase last night v(⌒o⌒)v♪ I was looking for a popsocket or some kind of phone holder because the ring I had got loose and doesn't work as a stand, but it was so bulky I couldn't put my phone flat on the table. I randomly saw this and it was $7, so I took a chance on it being total bootleg quality v_v but I'm glad I did since it is actually really really cute! The strap is going to be really useful, and there's also a ring at the top, as well as a little charm hole!! 




That's all for today! I hope to blog more often. I talked about this at the beginning, but it's been good for me to take a break from the pressure I was putting on myself from social media. I've felt a lot more free to express my own unique style and explore inspirations I hadn't before because I didn't feel like they were "enough". For example, I loved Ageha (2021 edition) but I was too afraid to post since I thought I would be criticized (⊙﹏⊙✿) it's totally an anxiety fueled fear but I'm glad I'm able to do something about that fear and be happier <3 It's honestly so much more fun to just do what you like and not pressure yourself to look or be anyone except yourself! ★~(◡‿◡✿)

Crafting Challenge- Nails!

 Hi there (✿◠‿◠)



Today I'm sharing the second day of my crafting challenge and a recent code!


Today, I went to a traditional Japanese painting class. I LOVED it. I met my teacher at the arts festival last week and I was so excited to hear she teaches classes as well! We got talking about shopping and  she said I looked like Egg magazine, which is about the best compliment ever (✿ ♥‿♥)  I wore my new stitch shirt and I felt so Gal and beachy! 







For the nail set challenge, I wanted to make summer beach nails! I've seen a lot of gals on instagram with blue sparkly nails, so I decided to do that too. 




I think they turned out really well! I'm so glad I got those little nail stands, it's so much easier to make nails when they aren't on your hands, lol! If you want to follow along, here's the prompt! I'm not going in order, so feel free to do it quickly, slowly, or any way you want (✿◠‿◠)



So far I've done Day 5 nails, and Day 6 beach jewelry!  I think I want to do a deco craft next, I already have all the materials! I'll see you soon (▰˘◡˘▰)

Blog Challenge- Beach Jewelry!

 Hi there! 


Last night, I started my blog challenge with the beach accessory prompt! Since it's summer I've been really into beach things lately, so I was really excited to make some bracelets! 



I've never used cowrie shells in jewelry before, so I'm really happy with how that bracelet turned out! It was a little confusing to make because you have to tie knots in a certain way to make the shells stay, and I forgot to leave a loop at the end to make it so that you could wear it. So instead I found the flower clasp in my jewelry supplies and used that! 


Today's co*de and make (✿◠‿◠)



I tried to do something kind of like these gals: 





But I think I need to blend out the lower liner a little less next time! I'm actually getting the newest Ageha in the mail tomorrow so I'm hoping there will be a few more closeups of looks like this!!



I felt really cute today (▰˘◡˘▰) I recently got this jacket since my office is really cold and a lot of my dressier shirts are tank tops. I have a regular jean jacket too but I was afraid of all that denim together. Tomorrow, I might go to a local arts festival! I have a lot of chores and grad school things to get done too, so I don't know when I'll get to do the next prompt from my challenge! If you missed it, the challenge is on my instagram as well as my last post! 



See you soon (✿◠‿◠)
