The Past Xmas Break Week~! (Slightly Long Post)

Hello everyone~! I'm terribly sorry for the lack of updates for like 2 weeks... Because A LOT has happened since then lol. I had a snowboarding trip with friends at first (and bonded with someone, once again at our Xmas get together), so I'm happy to announce... that I now have a boyfriend!!! =D After 20 years of my life waiting, I finally found my first guy and already I'm falling hard. We liked each other since the first time we met few months ago and thanks to a little bit of alcohol lol I finally decided to just go for it and confess him my feelings near Xmas eve (since the both of us were either shy or had too many misunderstandings for anything to develop. Pretty happy I broke that and initiated or we wouldn't be together). He returned my feelings and asked me out last week, now here we are~ =)

 
 This has just been my style for the past week or so... Last few pictures were taken by my friend Mimi who came back from New York to visit. She's a film student so I'd totally love to do an actual photo shoot with her sometime haha~
 
Recent shops! Liz Lisa coat and winter dress... I believe they're imitations though. But the price wasn't too bad and the quality quite good! I love my West49 snowboarding jacket I bought for the trip too <3
My decorated house for the family Xmas party~! Not many pictures that day but I had a lot of fun catching up with my cousins since I haven't seen them in ages.

 And for our first date, my wonderful new boyfriend got me flowers and this diamond necklace from Peoples. T_T He also took me to the revolving tower restaurant downtown Vancouver that overlooks the whole city at night. It was absolutely romantic and not too cliche lol. <333 He wanted everything to be perfect for my first date ever and it definitely was. I still can't believe he went all out just for our first date and I'm just feeling so emotionally touched.

Even though we've technically met and hung out with each other for probably 5 days since being friends, I think this is already love developing... I always had crushes in the past so this feeling is quite new to me. I miss the jittery, nervousness that crushes bring and when I felt so comfortable/calming around him, I was completely scared that my emotions for him is just friendship. But my friend told me that it's normal (I even googled it LOL). But is this what love feels like? (to those in relationships)

Even though it was miserable being single forever, I'm glad I decided to wait to have him as my first everything. =)  (he actually said that it was smart and good that I didn't do the whole high school fling thing lol.) He didn't believe no one liked me and that I was probably just picky because I'm waiting for my "Prince Charming" XDDD Best part was he didn't go for it and kiss me on the first date, instead we both thought the same thing and wanted to keep it special so it's going to happen on New Years Eve... Which is just right around the corner!! *nervous*

New Cell Phone & Style~

Hi everyone! Not much of an update this week since I haven't really been "out" lately other than focusing on my studies. My clothes have been getting really casual - lazy at school too even though I'm in for fashion. XD It's quite exhausting but there's only 2 days left before the break!! =D

My outfit today when I went for our weekly family outing. I seriously love this Liz Lisa top and am probably going to wear it on my Xmas date. =3

Has everyone started decorating their trees yet?? This is mine that I did last night and the pink small one that I bought from Daiso 'cause it looked cute. XD It can be for my pets lol.

An Ageha clubbing outfit I put together from a few days ago~ (inspired by Tricia) School is obviously affecting my diet so much. ToT I've only gained a few pounds that I tried maintaining so it goes up and down frequently... But visually those few pounds looks like it hit my thighs/stomach pretty hard. =___=;

My new Docomo keitai came in yesterday! *______* I don't think I've ever been so attached to a phone before lol. It's like my life now and I use it way more than my camera+ipod. There's just so many amazing functions in all it's high tech glory, while looking fashionable at the same time. Totally worth the money! Now I'll be able to take those same quality camera phone photos that the gyaru models do. x3

After School Xmas Shopping and Purikura~

 
Not much of an update this week~ But I went out shopping with my non-gyaru friend yesterday after school. It's really hard trying to find Xmas presents for people this year... ToT 

I ended up buying this Vera Wang gift set because I was dying to get new perfume and will forever be (semi)-loyal to this brand. XD I didn't constantly buy it before since it's quite expensive for one that's been out for a long time... Particularly the original one which I like. This set was more reasonable than the perfume itself ($75 for the smallest bottle), $82 for this set that includes the small perfume bottle, Au de Toilette roller, small bag and small lotion! O.o

 
Yes, here comes the fox tails AGAIN lol!! This was actually a present for Emy... But because she said she already has a lot, so I'm just going to keep it. XD It's like the Liz Lisa one no? 

The new winter collection Liz Lisa top I bought finally came in today~! I'm probably going to wear this for my Xmas get together "date" 8D

Even though it got pretty late, I managed to drag my friend into purikura haha~ We haven't taken any together for a long time! Please ignore how bad I look here... Dx It's not that good compared to my recent purikura's since it was the end of the day, we were tired with disheveled hair/make-up. And apparently my clothes were too bright/white for this machine to handle. -.-*

ARGH! So tired from school! I wonder how I'm going to handle this for 1 whole year. X_x 3 presentations next week... Definitely not looking forward to those. The teachers just really love to make us do public speaking huh? I need to stop procrastinating on homework/projects too lol. I always do it a couple hours before on the bus or sky train and everyone thinks I'm crazy. XD Well that's all for today, thank you for reading!!

Shops/Snow/School/Love Life and Dilemma on Future Career?

Hi everyone! I hope all is having a great winter season so far. Seems like everyone in the States would be really busy because of not only Thanksgiving, Black Friday but Christmas too! That's A LOT of shopping involved lol.
This week has been HELL when it came to the weather. I'm a total winter gal and love snow but... It might be just me but it has been unbelievably colder than usual. This year is supposed to be our coldest winter that we've had in 50 years with tons of snow and I can totally feel it. Either that or because I've lost so much weight/muscles compared to last year, my resistant is lower. (gotten really weak... Even though it's -10 to -2, feels like -20 to me) Taking transit and walking downtown is already difficult because of freezing cold, no matter how many layers I've got on. People are jammed inside the buses/trains... it sucks. =_= Few days ago there was a wind storm combined with it and raped my eyes to the point where I cried. The power went out for a few cities; it seriously felt like... early 2012.

On a brighter note! XD Here are a couple of recent shops and arrivals from my October orders~

Liz Lisa dress arrived last week! ;O Everyone thought I looked cute and they all pressured me to stand up and show the class yesterday. XDD SO embarrassing! It was also because the assignment we were working on were to identify textures etc. And my outfit matched so many of them lol.

Went to La Senza to get those more expensive, long lasting bras since the ones on sale are always crap quality. There was nice underwear for the early Xmas sales too so my mom bought us a bunch. XD My Liz Lisa make-up was DYING! It looked so ugly inside with all the eyeliner stains that I had to buy a new one from Claires. (finally)

My weakness for fox tails haha! So many colors to choose from, I bought this purple one and thought it would match the LV purse.

Just took pictures of my backyard from the bedroom window view this morning. This is my 2011 winter guys so don't complain if you hate snow so much lol. It's still coming down so I'm expecting a blizzard this weekend.


Tried Muto Shizuka-style! (mainly hair and kind of make-up) Reason why I wasn't too fond of this before is because I think the no bangs and flipped out curls accents my face too much by making it rounder. It's better now than before when I was fat. XD;;

I'm thinking about buying another poncho and was wondering if anyone would like to help me choose one? ^_^ There's these 4 I'm still stuck on...



School has been good by the way! Lots of those pretty, popular type girls in my classes but everyone is SUPER nice (well 'cept for maybe 2 girls ^^;;). It's surprising, I thought there would be a lot more catty girls (it's not high school anymore guys, please grow up). They're so sweet and accepting though, especially when I get all shy/embarrassed. I'm still nervous because it's only been a few weeks but overall I'll warm up later and be more comfortable. Since our classes requires us to do soooo many friggin' presentations in front of the room which me and my new friend dreads everyday. -.- We're kinda like "fuck it. Let's just get it over with" XD The con though is that... there's literally NO BOYS. It's almost like an all girls boarding school. =_=;; I've seen maybe 6 guys, more than half of which are gay... And here I said before that I would find a boyfriend in college LOL!! (Maybe if I didn't take a detour and went to Film school instead).

Ah well, I found someone else anyways... 8D Love life is slowly rising up! I'm really looking forward to our meeting again with "him" during Xmas. (But omg 1 month away T^T) He actually initiated and started talking to me on FB (THANK GOD! 'Cause I was going nowhere) ^///^;; Everyone kept telling me start a convo but I just.... couldn't lol. orz

When you're downtown at Blanche Macdonald, you'll find/meet a lot of contacts. We're always participating in fashion shows too and I became friends with someone who learned about me wanting to become a singer as a side career. She offered to hook me up with an agent to get me started! I was really overwhelmed/shocked because of this opportunity but at the same time I wanted to start my career, of course in Japan first, so I told her I'd think about it. (Not to mention I still have to work on my nerves and actually perform in front of a lot of people). If I start here, it'll be like... I'm the new Elise Estrada (who came from a city away from me). Not sure if I wanna start in the west/Hollywood, you know? But my friends are all encouraging me to do so and eventually branch over to Asia. Do you think I should try it...?

Xmas Cards Exchange!


I never did this in the previous years but participated in my friend's exchanges so I thought I'd try this time! Basically you're just mailing each other Christmas greeting cards to one another~ I will send to anybody who'd like one too if you provide me your address. For more privacy in giving out the address, you could always email me at kurama_hiei1297@hotmail.com. I would definitely love any cards if you have the time to send one! *o*

Last Week's Style & New Cellphone Help!

Hey everyone! Just a couple of pictures of my style last week, it's pretty much the same from both days.
From this look I went to school with and while walking on Granville/Robson, someone actually went up to me and thought I was a celebrity/model. ^//^;;

 

This is from my friend's recent birthday party (in a bubble tea restaurant playing cards) and MAN it was a gong show. XD Especially driving in the same car with 3 other boys, we were just partying it up. Also getting lost numerous times on the highway... LOL!


At work just on Sunday, there was a cute Japanese student that came to my work (during the Fall season, exchange students from JP come down here a lot to visit) and after saying "Arigatou" to him, he dragged his homestay back in the store later and asked for a pic with me. XDD He was so adorable! Named Koki and his English was not bad at all. Apparently it was his last day in Canada and we talked for a bit even though my manager was like WTF are you doing take pictures and doing peace signs lol! I asked him if he (obviously) knew about gyaru girls and he laughed saying "yea I thought you were one!" My friend laughs at me later saying, "congratulations Kathy, you officially fooled a Japanese person to think that youre Japanese. You should just go there and blend in." That was the highlight of my work.

Need some opinions from my fellow followers! =D My 3 year cell phone contract is just days from expiring (finally, thank God) and now I'm going to try buying a new Japanese phone~ These are the styles I like most that are more affordable than the others. Anyone care to help me pick which one with votes? =3


 
Both of the top ones are touch screen but in different styles.

 
This one looks like a mini tv~

 
And this one can be flipped both ways as shown in the pic. Like a normal flip cell phone and LG Keybo. It also turns into a camera too!
I really want an unusual, pretty phone that would basically fascinate people. XD;; On a side note... I think... I THINK I am quite close to getting my first bf... *scream* This is just speculation though! ^v^;;
