What I Would Tell Beginner Gyaru Me

Hello all~!

In March of 2013, Mitsu of Universal Doll posted an entry on what you would tell your beginner Gyaru self after having been in the fashion for a while.

I've recently gone back to that post, as I had posted in it when she put up the entry.  It made me think about my current route and how far I've come to reach this point.   Feels like only last year that I was staring in awe at the pretty Jesus Diamante dresses and wishing for one of their famous shoes.

This one specifically.
Times have certainly changed since those days (though I still want those shoes), and I've grown and learned a lot about my style and what I hope to achieve.   Even in the short period of time in which I wrote my comment on her page, I've learned even more.

So I wanted to take the time to talk to past newbie Gyaru me, knowing what I know now and going through what I've gone through.

Resolutions for 2014!

So, another year has arrived!

2013 brought a lot of life lessons to me.  Not much happened in an event sort of way, but I made a lot of inner changes.   In fact, that was my main resolution for the year, to simply learn more about me, and I ended up having a huge revelation about myself.

Did you do anything for New Year's Eve or New Year's Day?  I spent 1/1 with a nice personal spa day!  Just deep cleansed 2013 right out of my skin, lol.

I like the idea of resolutions.  I know, it seems silly to just start something at the beginning of the year when you could just start it right away, but the reason I like them on New Year's is because of when it is.  It's far easier to notice how much you've grown starting at the beginning of a year than during the middle.
