Review: Black Milk Tea Shop

Hello, everyone! I came back to London about a week ago, and am here until I move to Tokyo at the end of March. 

I was recently sent a garter from Black Milk Tea to review. I'd just like to mention that although this is a sponsored review, these are my own, honest opinions on the product.

The owner of the shop and I exchanged a few emails to discuss the sponsorship, and she was very friendly and always replied quickly. 
I asked for it to be sent to my father's house in London, but this was while I was still in France, so I don't know how quickly it arrived. It was already there when I got back, so it definitely arrived from America in less than 2 weeks.

The garter arrived safely in a padded envelope. 

The product
I was given the X-Garter.

Here's how it looks worn:

 The front half of the garter is made of pleather, and the back is elastic so the size is adjustable. There are now three different sizes available, but there was only one when I was sent mine, so it's a little big  for me and I have to wear it slightly higher on my leg than I usually would.

Cute, heart-shaped clips

My inspiration for this outfit was witches, because I've been really into American Horror Story: Coven recently haha
Garter: Black Milk Tea
Dress: Asos
Necklace: Moi-même-Moitié

All of the garters in the shop are hand made, and it does show a little when you look closely, but it's barely noticeable when you wear it, so it's not really a problem. Everything is affordable, and there are lots of items catering to wearers of gothic styles, and also those who prefer a cuter, pastel look.

08/02/2014 - Paris Manga

On Saturday, I went to a manga/anime event with Fréd and Nicole.

I decided to go pretty much the day before, so I just threw together an anime-esque outfit on the day. 
Wore my grey wig for the first time in quite a while~

With Fréd and Nicole

As is usual for this sort of thing, the actual event wasn't particularly interesting, so we just wandered around taking photos with cosplayers and looking at the stalls, but I had a lot of fun.

I saw Hika (the Maya cosplayer on the right) for the first time in forever c:

New titan friend :D

26/01/2014 - Hair shoot

Last weekend I did a hair shoot. It's been a super long time since I've done a photo shoot because I don't know anyone in the industry in Paris, and the site I use to find jobs in England (Model Mayhem) isn't really used in France. It was a long day (about 10 hours), but it was relaxed and I really enjoyed it. There were about 7 other models, 2 teams of hair stylists, and only one photographer, so a lot of the day was spent just waiting for our turns and eating free food haha. 

9.30am start nope nope nope

Look 1 (before make up)

My hair looks a lot shorter, but they only trimmed my bangs! The rest is just pinned back. It was really fun watching the stylists completely transform my hair without even cutting it.
