The wonderful Lizzie and the gorgeous Alice created a Gyaru meme because there is a serious lack of gyaru related online activity/memes! It is meant to be a 30 day meme but ... I don't think I could handle that! So I am going to do several of them in one post.

As this is a gyaru meme I thought I should post a picture of me in gyaruo. This is the only recent picture I have, sorry. Ok fifteen facts ... erm I will do 5 otherwise this will be way too long!

  • My favourite gyaru styles are Hime and Kuronba/Tsuyome.
  • My favourite clothes brand is Deepstyle.
  • My first ever "job" was for a Couturier in Ireland.
  • I am a massive lightweight (I get drunk very easily) normally I only need one big bottle of Smirnoff Ice and I'm drunk!
  • I once drank from Hizakis water bottle at a Versailles concert.

  • Sorry my facts are so boring :\

    A picture of a memorable (gyaru related) night! Unfortunately we were way too drunk to take any proper photos on the night so here is a picture from the following morning. It was the gal meet at the last mcm expo. One of the best nights of my life! I had so much fun and met a lot of amazing people not that I can remember much of it! <3 

     And now for a picture of me with the person I have been closest to the longest! 

    This is me with my best friend Lorraine
    My gyaru/gyaruo inspirations!!!! Ok this is so difficult because I get inspired by so many things. I think I am going to have to say my biggest inspiration gyaruo wise is Akinari.


    Look at how pretty he is! <3 what I love most about him is his makeup <3 

    Here are some other Gyaruo who inspire me.

     Erm my best tips for other gyaru and gyaruo are ...

    1. Read gyaru magazines! This is the easiest way to stay up to date with what is happening with Japanese gyaru, it is also a great way of getting inspiration. The gal mags also have some good hair and makeup tutorials.
    2. Do some research! Find out about the different substyles in gyaru, when they were popular etc. Also looking at other western/non Japanese gals is a good way of seeing the best ways to wear gyaru in the west it's also good to talk to other gaijin gyaru as they can share the best websites to get gyaru brands, contacts and lashes from as well as other advice.
    3. Keep practising and keep trying new things! It's the only way you can improve.
    P.S I found this tumblr recently! It's run by the same person who makes the gyaruo purikura videos on youtube anyone interested in gyaruo should follow :) x

    I would like to see more people do this meme or do what I did and do some parts of it! So I want to tag TiiaEmilia and Lorraine. Can't wait to see your posts ^_^ <3 x
