Ontario Gyaru: Winter Summit 2015☆

Hello hello helloヾ(@⌒ー⌒@)ノ~! Jan. 31st was finally Ontario's Gal Winter Summit in Toronto! It was a nice day of chilling at a bubble tea cafe, stopping by Jealousy Beauty, having dinner at DonDon Izakaya and belting out lyrics at karaoke. I was so busy taking everyone else's pics, I forgot to take makeup pics of myself. Which is kind of good because I wasn't having the greatest makeup day(; ̄д ̄). Well this was my look for the meet! 
Here are a few of the from the meet.
Anyone need ナプキン ? (*≧▽≦)ノシ

It was wonderful seeing all my loves again and the new faces. Everyone has busy lives, but I hope to see them all again real soon.

フレアフレグランス ~FLAIR Fragrance~ {Review}

Holla everyone! I just wanted to do a review post for this product I picked up at Jealousy Beauty in Downtown Toronto (Queen street location) (ノ´ヮ´)ノ*:・゚✧FLAIR Fragrance Mist*:・゚
It's a mist spray that freshens your clothes throughout the day, and becomes stronger when you're moving a lot or working up a sweat. I remember seeing this commercial way back last year, so I was surprised when I saw it on the shelf~

The packaging is pretty. Omg I can never resist a product with a nice package. It took me a while to decide, but I ended up getting the FLORAL & SWEET scent for around $8, and I don't regret it. I was anxious to try it out so I tested the mist on my hats and my main jacket to see how long the scent lasts.

Hat results: I sprayed all my hats the day before going to work, and all day it was still giving off that soft floral fragrance. The smell didn't start to ware off until 4 days later 

Jacket results: 
After giving the inside of my jacket 20 sprays, the scent kept the inside fur nice and fresh for almost 7 days! Running to class every day, made me smell like a sweet flower (ノ*゚▽゚*)

Overall /
I recommend this for those who don't like harsh smelling perfumes, and just want to exude a nice pretty scent. I want to try the other fragrances they have as well.
(The only con is that you will unknowingly spray everything, and the bottle will start to disappear real quick...)

Gals Who Don't Want to be Gals

"Nose stripes are ugly"
"I hate over the top gyaru with tans and big hair"
"I don't like wearing much makeup"
...The list goes on.
If you hang around the gaijin gyaru community groups long enough, you will find phrases like those from girls who have yet to progress, and don't seem like they want to. I don't get it, do you like the style or not? I'm not sure if some of the new girls really know what gyaru style is and use to be. Not too long ago I was asked the question what does someone need to look gyaru? My answer was: 

I think you need great coordinates. The way you wear them, and little details make a difference.

Lol everyone kind of battled back and forth for a bit. After thinking about it for a while longer, I kind of want to change my answer to:
You need everything 
*Gal make with lashes and the whole shabang
*Great body flattering coordinates
*Nicely done hair
*Trendy or unique accessories

This is what makes some gaijin gals JUST LOOK GYARU.
 They do all those things, know what they want to look like and practice till they get it right. It's one
thing to have days when you are on off mode but still making progress, and another to look off all the time and say "Here is my gyaru style for today". You can't stop half way and say DONE. To me, learning how to do JUST eye make means absolutely NOTHING if you don't have anything else going on... Because now other styles are using the same makeup technique. If you put no effort you are not going to go far. There are so many magazines and photos of gyaru that you can search for online, and practice from. It's even better to ask privately for help if you are shy.
If you really love the fashion put in all your effort.
Be bold and do your best, because you will have more fun :)
I made this post especially for the Ontario gyaru.
