Mesh dress from

This is part two of the reviews!

This post will be about the mesh dress, which you can find here for $9.33.

Here it is unworn, in a size M. This piece is actually a little different from the stock pictures. The sleeves are much shorter, and the overall dress length is shorter, too (so short that I feel more comfortable wearing it as a top rather than a dress). I'm sure that the model on the site is shorter than me (I'm 173cm), but I don't think that's the whole reason that this is so short. Other than that, it's a nice, well-made piece.

Here's how it looks worn:

Review: Luxemme

(Please note that although this is a sponsored review, all opinions are entirely my own.)
I was contacted by Luxemme, who offered me a product of my choice to review. 

Luxemme is an online fashion brand based in Manchester, UK. They take inspiration from and blend together Parisian and Manchester fashion, creating a classy and unique (yet still very wearable) look. 

The staff member I was in contact with was very friendly and helpful, and the product was dispatched and arrived quickly. 
It arrived in perfect condition in a sturdy, plastic envelope. 

I chose the Melba Tie Waist Jacket. Here's how it looks unworn:
It's well made with good quality material, and is true to the stock photos on the website. The fabric is quite light, making it perfect for spring and autumn (or English summers).

Here it is worn:
I really like how versatile this piece is. Here, I've gone for a simple, slightly gothic look, but I often wear it in a far more "normal" way for work (where I dress smart casual). 

In regards to sizing, this is a size 8, and it fits like you would expect a size 8 to, so no problems there.

I overall had a very positive experience dealing with Luxemme, and I'd definitely recommend them, so check out their site!

I accidentally dyed my hair

lol who does that

I like it though, so I don't mind.

Sailor uniform from

As promised, here's the first of my reviews of the products that sent me. Sorry it's a bit late! I've been super busy with work and organising my move to Japan (which will probably be next month!) lately.

The item I'm going to review today is the sailor fuku, which you can purchase here for just $10.39!

Here it is straight out of the packaging:
I like it a lot! The design is very cute, and it looks just like the stock photos on the site. It's well made and comfortable. The skirt material is quite thin, which means it can be slightly see-through in some lights, but with a skirt of this length I'd usually wear safety shorts anyway, so it's not a big deal. The price seems to have increased since I ordered it, but it's still very reasonable, and better quality than you would expect for the price. 

Here it is worn:

For those curious about sizing, this is the smallest size (asian size M) available, and my height is 5'8. The top is pretty stretchy, but the skirt's waistband isn't, so make sure to check the measurements on the site carefully. 

 The bow is attached by a safety pin, so you can remove it if you want.

Today I want to introduce a nice website to you guys! Although this is a sponsored post, these are 100% my own opinions. are an online clothing shop with a huge variety of cute, good quality products with low prices. 
Last month, they contacted me offering to send me some products of my choice in exchange for posting them on my LookBook. They shipped my order out quickly, and despite using the slowest shipping method, my package arrived within three weeks. 

The products all came together in one plastic envelope, and each item was wrapped separately inside, as you can see above.

The items I chose:

I'll post separate reviews with outfit shots for each product soon!

Hyper Japan

A week or two ago I attended a Japanese culture event in London called Hyper Japan. I wasn't hugely impressed by the event itself this time, but they had some good bands there, so I enjoyed it. 


 LOST ASH did lives on two days and meet & greets. They were really kind and friendly c:

I was recently contacted by, who offered me some products in exchange for using them in some Lookbook posts. I wanted to post about them here, too, because they have some cool stuff. Most of the products are only £5, but the quality is really good!

Here are some outfits with the items I chose:
 I decided to get this one in size XL so I could wear it like a dress.

This one is actually a normal T-shirt, but I cut it into a crop top.

VAMPS concert

Over the weekend I was lucky enough to see VAMPS playing twice at Japan Night in London! I'd only planned to go on the Friday, as I couldn't afford tickets for both nights, but on Saturday I ran into the lovely Kimi, who gave me a spare pass she had for that night. <3 

On Friday I arrived at the venue a few hours early. About a month ago I had surgery on my feet, and whilst I'm almost recovered now, I still have to use crutches, and didn't want to risk someone jumping on my feet, so I arrived early so I could stand in the front row, which would be safer (and I could put my crutches down behind the barrier and hold on to that instead if I needed to). Thankfully, I managed to get a front row spot on Kaz's side. 

My look that day was inspired by the girl on the cover of the BLOODSUCKERS album, because I had fun doing her makeup a couple of months ago. I didn't have anything like the clothes she wears, so I cut up my tour shirt from 2013 to make it a more flattering style (used to hardly wear it because of the shape it was haha), and keeping with the feel of the album, went for a vampire/pirate/rock-themed outfit.

The concert was amazing on both days. The setlists were pretty similar on both days, and there was a good mix of songs from their new album and popular, older ones. Sadly, they never played The Jolly Roger, which is the song I'd wanted to hear the most. Hyde spoke to the crowd a lot, and really tried his best with English, which was cute. 

Post-surgery update

Long time, no post! About a month ago I had surgery on my feet, so I haven't had much to post about. Nothing "happened" as such; it was just fixing a problem I've had since childhood. I had to rest for four weeks, so I was pretty much just watching anime at home the whole time haha. I've been allowed to start going out again (with crutches) since Friday, though, so I should have some more things to blog about soon.

Anyway, here's a recent makeup look:

Yesterday I didn't feel like being myself, so I tried being a boy instead. I quite liked the result, so I want to try dressing like this more in the future~

Vocaloid-inspired look

With the bottom layer of my hair having recently been dyed a Hatsune Miku sort of colour, I decided to do a vaguely Vocaloid-inspired look.

Grey & blue hair

Long time no post (again)! I'm nearing the end of exams now, but for the past month or two I haven't done much other than studying, so I haven't had a lot to post. Anyway, at some point over the Easter break my hair was cut and dyed for a hair shoot~

The top colour wasn't changed much, really; just became a slightly darker grey. The whole underside is blue now, though.

I can also style it into boy hair. :D

Valentine's Day Makeup

This was my makeup look for Valentine's Day. I didn't actually have any plans; I just wanted to take photos while my hair was still pink haha~
