#Galappreciation !

We all know that there is a possible end of an era~ By know we may all have heard or read that the publisher of Koakuma Ageha, Ane Ageha, Happie Nuts, I love mama and others is in great debt and has suspended publishing. I'm actually pretty sad about this~ Eventhough Ageha has toned down a lot lately I have always seen it as my 'gal bible' and I always took inspiration from the magazine. Even now working as an editor for Gal VIP I took the Ageha as my prime example for designing the pages. I can go on and on on how much I will miss Ageha and the other mags but it'll just make me even more sad haha.

Anyway, Charlotte came with an amazing idea on how to show our appreciation towards the publisher!
#Galappreciation! Read more about it in the following graphic!

I would love to see all of you taking a picture like this that we can send to the publisher and show them that even the west cares! Show me the link to your picture in the post, or hastag it anywhere with #galappreciation and I will find it :) Let's hope we can make a small difference with our big community :)

[Sponsored Review] Pinky Paradise // Princess Pinky Eclipse in Grey!

Hello Everybody!

Today I'm bringing you a review on Pinky Paradise's new series, the Princess Pinky Eclipse! 

Princess Mimi 4 colors.jpg
As you can see they have a wide range of colours to choose from! But I choose the grey because I thought it might suit well with a more 'mature' look :) Here are some pictures with a wig I've stolen from my mom! ;D The pictures aren't that great but unfortunately my camera was out of battery and I ofcourse forgot the charger ><

And a close up of the lens;

Soo these lenses, I must say that I think they look a lot diffrent in real life, and on my light eyes than they do on the stock pictures. I think the design is rather, plain. The colour of the lens is solid, and the rim on the edge is solid as well. The only pattern on the lens is the circle in the middle. I must say they do give a nice halo effect, if you are looking for that sort of thing! The enlargement is minimal, as they're 14.5 mm lenses, and my irises are rather large on their own so to me it doesn't do much. They are really comfortable though! I had no problems with any discomfort whatshowever~ I still don't really know how to feel about this design~ I think it's a little too 'flat' for my liking and they can look a little scary because there are so many rings created~ 

So now on to the ratings!
Design; ♥♥♥XX ~ I like the design but I think it would look better on dark eyes
Comfort ♥♥♥♥♥ ~ Nothing to add here, they fit great!
Enlargement ♥♥XXX ~ Doesn't really enlarge my eyes that much, but that is because I have rather large eyes myself.

Thank you everybody for reading and I hope you like it! If you want to get a pair, check it out here!

See you soon! ♥

OOTD and vintage finds~

Hi everybody!

I told you I'd try to blog a little more often!

So here is a simple outfit I wore today with my new jacket from DreamV! I ordered there for the first time a few days back so I'll make a post about what I got soon ^^

Outfit Rundown: Blazer: DreamV // Shirt: Bershka // Skirt: Primark // Necklace: Gift from a friend
And last weekend my mom went to a garage sale in the village and she brought some amazing things for me! It's a garage sale that happens every year, and usually I go too but this time I was still sleeping because I went out the night before xD So the two women that she got these items from are there every year as well and they always sell awesome vintage items and designer stuff :3 So my mom brought me 2 pearl necklaces and 2 pairs of chunky earring which I really love lately!

Here are some non-vintage earrings I got from ebay. I can't stop buying these kind of earrings! Help!

That's it for today! I will get back to you all soon! ^^

Outfit Post~

Hello Everybody!

It's been quite a long while since I made an actual outfit post ><

This had a lot to do with the fact that dressing up has not been one of my main priorities anymore, that I hardly have and occassion to do so, and because I don't really feel comfortable with any outfit lately~ Hopefully that will change sooner or later :)

But enough with the ranting! I had a party last friday and decide to do something about my face again, so here we go! I did some heavier make-up again since a long time, 'cause maybe that's one of the things I've been missing lately ...

Outfit rundown; Jacket: Coolcat // Shirt: Primark // Skirt: H&M // Choker: Princess Apparel
Necklace: Some shop in Suriname // Brooch: Glavil // Rose: Primark
Lately I've been stealing my bf's Iphone for pictures cause my own phone lets me down .. xD

GAL Lunch in Utrecht!

Hello everybody!

Today, a blogpost about a meetup I organised in Utrecht! I figured it had been way too long since there was a gal meet in the Netherlands and that it was time to bring the band back together! Or so to speak~

I decide to make a meetup where we could just hang out, eat loads of food and get some great drinks afterwards! And so we came across this all you can eat place Sumo. Eventhough a lot of my friends have been there, I've never been to this place and I was suprised about the interior and decoration, it was so pretty! And the food was actually really good. I love sushi so pretty much everything that even looks like sushi tastes good to me, but I think the good was good :')
And what is talking about food without pictures of food?

I didn't actually take too many pictures that day... I don't know why but usually I bring that big ass camera along with me but I end up hardly to not using it because it's often such a hassle to take out of the bag etc~ Talking about first world problems :') I might need to get a smaller camera for meetup like this, I'm sure I will snap a lot more pictures if I had one :x Anyway here are some pictures of the group! I was glad to see so many lovely gals together, and even a load of new faces!

After stuffing our faces with sushi and other delicious treats some of us went home because of long train rides or other apointments, and others went to the cocktailbar where I had made a reservation! It was quite a walk towards the place but I was very glad that we had finally arrived at our destination. It was lots of fun and somehow the meetup started to turn into a huge selfie meetup ... xD Gals were scattered all over the cafe taking pictures of themselves :') (while I just sat in the corner entertaining one of the guests cause hey, that's what a host does right? :P) But it was a very interesting sight and I wish I had taken pictures of the whole happening. Unfortunately I only took pictures of the cocktails! But just look at the pictures of these gorgeous drinks!

I had a lot of fun at the cocktail bar, everybody was just chatting around and eventhough the group started to slim down I was glad to do some cathing up with everyone! And here is a little picture I stole from my bby charlotte; we were lucky enough to see that the place had some kaluha! So we could have one of our signature drinks, the kaluha milk. Drinking it always brings back some amazing memories, especially those from Japan :3

I really wish fun days like these would last forever! Unfortunately everybody lives quite far apart, and it can be a hassle getting everybody together. But I'm allready looking forward to the next meetup! We will have a high tea at a place called Genki Tei, where they have a cute hello kitty cafe! Or so I've been told :)

Here are some pictures of my outfit and my hair! It's been a long while since I decided to actually do something with my own hair because usually the weather in the Netherlands is super shit and as soon as you step out of the door your hair will get blown away u.u But for this meetup I tried! And I think I still got some of the skills! But I might need to train myself a little more. And I need to get some extensions to match my current haircolour!

My hair before I left for the meetup~ 

And my simple outfit of the day! I wanted to wear something comfy, and I didn't have a lot of clothes at my boyfriend's place ^^"

That's it for today! I hope to get back to all of you soon!
