Well I must say, Saturday was the saturday-ist saturday I have had in some time! Full of cute things, time with my hubby, getting excited about our Japan trip and of course, making some lovely new friends at the Harajuku SA Harajuku Walk!
Before I go into details on my super busy day, lets have a talk about the outfit. Since I knew I was going to the first ever Adelaide Harajuku walk later that afternoon, I decided I would kawaii up for the whole day, and just put a little more umph into it than I do on my usual day to day basis.
Kawaii outfit run down from the bottom up!
Pink bow bodyline heels, which are super cute and have a chunky heel which makes them easy to walk around in for long periods of time. Sailor moon kitty stockings that I actually had completely forgotten I owned until I was cleaning out my wardrobes the other day. Pink cakes and macaroons skirt, which has been well loved. Giant pink novelty bow belt. Cute ruffle sleeved brand t-shirt from milk, which I later added a blue cardigan to for extra colour. Also not pictured here: Mt beloved blue/purple holographic backpack from smiggle that I carry almost everywhere these days!
Kawaii make up look of the day
I have never been a huge fan of mismatched hair colour and brows, so for me pink brows are a must, especially when trying to be extra adorable. To get this look I used a generic pink liquid lip colour I got off ebay, and used it like I would an eyebrow pomade. Works like a charm!
On my eyes I have a few different shaded from my too faced chocolate bon bons pallet, with a light purple cream eye shadow from 3ina on my lids. My eyeliner wings were done super quickly by using my medium sized vamp stamp (I’ll be brave enough to try he large one of these days!), and my lashes I did nothing to (yes I said nothing!) as I had a set of eye lash extensions installed the day before at Le Lash Beautique. All of that sounds a lot I know, but I was pleasantly surprised by how quick and easy it was to put on thanks to my new products.
Foundation as always is DermaBlend pro, which helps me to flawlessly cover up my rosacea followed by their setting powder. Highlighter is the pink shiny one from lime crimes opals highlight pallet, cheeks are a pink (the name of which i currently cannot remember) from too faceds love blush collection. Then on my lips I have “Koala” from NYX, which is quickly becoming my favourite!
You may have noticed, but I kinda have a thing for big pink bows! Todays accessories, that i was silly enough to forget to put on for my outfit shot because I was too busy taking this photo lol. I had two ink bows in my hair, one in each pig tail. Some colourful heart bracelets, because you can never have too much candy. Three of my favourite rings – Sparkly heart, AP milky planet ice cream and a sparkly star. Shiny heart pearl necklace, which I adore (can ou believe i got it in the kids section at louvisa?!). Purple heart shaped shades to keep the sun out of my eyes, and my giant bow belt that I purchased at AVcon.
Breakfast adventures with Ye Olde Husband and the little floof
I have been on night shift literally alllllllll weekend, so I got home from work at 8am that morning and jumped back into bed for a little more sleep. We got up shortly after because we had a fair amount to do that day before I had to go back to work. First we were off to the post office to get our passport photos taken, and then straight to the RAA to have our international drivers licences issued! We have organised to go on a go karting tour of Tokyo, its going to be so freaking cool. Riccardo was silly enough to leave his actual licence at home, so he will have to go do his another day after work. Silly boy, lucky I was driving!
Next we headed off to go on a cute little breakfast date together at the Queen Street cafe. I absolutely adore that place, the food is amazing and the street has such a great vibe to it. We found this great art piece on a shed door near the cafe, so of course I had to get an outfit shot in front of it. Bella is such a good poser for Riccardo. I swear every time I point a camera at her she does the dog version of rolling her eyes at me.
The cafe is very dog friendly in their outdoor seated section, so we love to take Bella with us when we go out for breakfast. She is such a friendly pup (well, doggo, she is 11yo) that every one wants to cuddle and pat her. Which of course she doesnt mind. She just laps up the attention. After breakfast we usually take Bella for a nice walk , which is exactly what we did!
After our little walk, I dropped Riccardo and Bella off home and headed into town solo for…
Adelaide’s very first Harajuku walk!
I was super excited for this, having seen countless video’s and photos of the ones held in other cities I really wanted to go to one. This one was being held by a newly formed group called Harajuku SA, which is a Facebook group I had been added to a few weeks earlier by one of my friends. She wasn’t going to the meet today however, so I was a little nervous to be going on my own. Turns out, that I didn’t need to be worried about it at all, as everyone was so kind and friendly. The meet ended up being less of a walk, and more of a hang out in the park together thing which was still pretty cool, because I got to have chats with some super cool people. Oh, and a power ranger stole my phone. No I’m not kidding lol
But don’t just take my word for it, check out my vlog of the event, and if you are an Adelaide local, be sure to join the group and come along to the next one!
Love Love! <3
