♡ Ayumi Seto Style Books! Part Two ♡

Recently I posted about one of the Japanese model Ayumi Seto's style books, Ayumi Kidz

This time I will be talking about Kidult Girl, a book she posted Winter 2015! It's another style book, but shows more styles and more background information about her!



She shows you behind the scenes for photoshoots, how she co-ordinates her outfits, make and hair styles and what influences her style. It's really interesting, especially if you are as interested in American culture as she is! (I'm not haha)


The reason for the title of her style book. 

Being in your twenties can be a rough time. You have no idea what you want to do, unless you're one of those lucky people who already know what they want from life. Sometimes you feel like a kid, wanting to do nothing but play and mess around, but as an adult you now have to face different responsibilities. That's how I interpret "kidulthood" haha! 


Here are some of my favourite pages in the book:







I love that you can tell that Ayumi is heavily inspired by American culture, BUT she puts her own spin to it that makes it original and unique to herself.




I wish I could just effortless co-ordinate outfits like this! ;A:





Cute hairstyles! As I've said before the short bob is my favourite!




The 'A' page from Ayumi's dictionary.




I really wish I could afford her clothes , the only thing I managed to buy was a knit beanie from her store in Japan! She also sells some of her collection in Lazy Oaf! Why am I so poor??!!! 



I really hope she publishes more style books, I'd definitely buy them! Thanks Ayumi for being such a great inspiration for style and fashion and making it about being yourself, and who you are! ^^


Ayumi is actually releasing another book called My 7 Colours! I've just ordered it from cdjapan, so when it arrives I'll post it here! ヾ(´▽`*)ノ☆



Thanks for reading!

♡ Ayumi Seto Style Books! Part One ♡

So when I was in HMV in Japan, they had a book section and I managed to find two Ayumi Seto style books!




She's my favourite Japanese model and she frequently features in Zipper magazine, the best magazine eveeeeeer!






I'm not obsessed with this magazine, I swear!!


It's heavily centered on Aomoji-Kei and basically wearing whatever you want and not caring about attracting guys or what they think haha! Kyary Pamyu Pamyu is probably still the leader of this style, she just wears whatever she wants and always looks great!! ٩(♡ε♡ )۶




The first book I will show is called Ayumi Kidz and was published in 2013. I believe this was when Ayumi was just about to kick off her Aymmy in the Batty Girls brand.





Here are some of my favourite styles from the book:



I'm in love with bomber/varsity jackets paired with skinny jeans or shiny/velvet leggings and trainers! I'm not as brave as Ayumi to pair them with shorts and knee high socks though (๑ˊ▵ॢˋ̥๑)



Loving the gingham shirt tied around her waist! I do that a lot haha!



Love this look! (♥ω♥*)



School/Preppy style!


I can't achieve these hairstyles without the help of weave/extensions lol but they're so cute!! I especially love when she rocks the short bob hairstyle.



Her make is always so simple but it looks really good and compliments her outfits. I often try to imitate how she puts on her blusher!




Ayumi Kidz is a great short style book and has given me so much inspiration!




Next time I'll show you her latest book: Kidult Girl! It's even better!

Thanks for reading!

Kyary Pamyu Pamyu 2015 AND 2016 London lives!

.....hi? |。・)

So I've been away for a long time and that's because....I've literally been away! I've just come back from a seven week trip to Barbados. And already I'm planning my next venture hehe. I don't know, I'm just in the mood to travel!

October last year I went to see Kyary. I started writing a post for it...and forgot! (;*´Д`)ノ

So here's some pics! I was at the back so my view wasn't great but because it was my third time seeing her I didn't mind!






Ok that was really bad. These three pictures are the only ones that aren't blurry! Sorry...(*/_\)


Last Friday I went to see Kyary at Koko, Camden! This was my fourth time seeing her!! Now I've finally experienced seeing a live from a balcony. I really enjoyed it!











She's really improved over the last few years. She's way more confident and less nervous, even when speaking English! The one thing I hated about this live was the lack of merchandise sold. There were literally two t-shirts (black and white) and a glowstick that appeared not to have her logo on it. Like seriously? This is her 5th anniversary live, where's the merch???? We got this file for free at the end of the live.




Other than that she was really great, as usual! ☆ ~('▽^人)

I have other posts in mind that I want to make for this blog. I wanted to talk about using my Japanese 3DS XL but I'm struggling to get pictures from it to my computer. You have to use Miiverse I think? I haven't done that for ages haha, but I'll figure it out eventually! I really want to post about Ayumi Seto's photobooks so I'll get on that asap! I'll also post some Barbados scenery pics, it really is gorgeous out there! And there are still a couple of posts about my March trip to Japan that need to be fixed up and posted. So expect lots of travel posts!

See you, see you, see you again! ♪♫♬\( ̄▽ ̄)\

See you, see you, see you next time! /( ̄▽ ̄)/♪♫♬
