Topshop Wishlist! ♥

Monday, 16 February 2015

Hello Everyone! 
I hope you all had a love able Valentines day and a great weekend! I went out with two friends who traveled down to London this weekend to see me, and a few friends gave me some chocolates, sweets, pink roses, and some of my favorite collectibles (cute stickers and photobooks) so I was overwhelmed with happiness and felt very loved on Valentines day even without a true Valentines ^^ 

Meet Shimazaki Haruka (Paruru), one of my fashion inspirations and general role models. Isn't she the cutest? A lot of my fashion inspo comes from her style, so you should check out her instagram

Sunday night, I decided to go online window shopping ^^; 
I looked around Topshop and saw a bunch of cute things that I would love to buy but can't afford so while I was adding all of these items to my basket in the hopes of someone paying for £300 worth of clothing and luxuries, I thought about making a wishlist post to share all of the items I hope to find sitting in my room when I wake up, so here it is! I hope you find something that you like too!

I hope you liked the piece I added to my cart! As you can see, the clothing I like to wear is usually very dark, whereas my indoor clothing, underwear, and makeup is quite bright!

Luckily for me, I have Half Term meaning that I get a whole weeks worth of doing a ton of revision blogging and playing games and going out with friends! If I find the time, I might go out to pick up one of the items on this list ^.^

*:・゚✧ATTENTION! Mini Lush Haul!✧*:・゚

Friday, 13 February 2015

Gd'evening folks!

I've recently gotten a little obsession with the all handmade, animal friendly beauty brand LUSH! 

(Click on the photo to go to the LUSH Online Store!)

For those of you who don't know, LUSH is a cosmetics retailer from the UK that produces and sells a ton of handmade products, including soaps, shower gels, shampoos and hair conditioners, bath bombs, bubble bars, face masks, hand and body lotions for various skin types. 

One thing I love about LUSH is that their products are natural and feel so great on my skin. It makes me feel (physically and mentally) gorgeous and always lifts up my mood when I use any of their products. Their staff have to be some of the kindest and most confident people I have ever met. They always find a way to make me smile and think positively after I horrific day at college. 

On Thursday after my classes ended, me and my friend decided to go to the mall to hang out and grab something to eat. While I was there we went into Lush and I was able to pick up a few cute products.

These are the products I got on that day! I have yet to try them as I'm still trying to finish off the lush set I got for christmas.

This is my current Lush collection of 2015 (not including my christmas stuff). 
All bought with my own money! 

Bath Bombs: Sex Bomb - Twilight - Space Girl - Floating Flower - Cinders - Dragons Egg
Bubble Bars and Fun: Comforter - Candy Mountain - Creamy Candy - Pink Fun
Shower Gels and Lip products: Prince Charming Shower Gel - Bubblegum Lip Scrub

The really nice cashiers offered me a little tin of hand lotion for free but I felt bad taking it for free because the money goes to charity so I gave them the money anyway xD

I had a lot of fun at Lush and spent a good hour or so talking to the workers. One of them went to the same college that I'm currently attending so we spoke a lot. Another one is doing a degree in Fashion so he gave me lots of tips on how to make my fashion work stand out and gave me lots of encouragement! One of my favorite parts of the day was when they cranked the music up a little and we all broke out dancing around the store! I had a fantastic time there and could go on about how sweet they all were but it would take hours to write. 

That's all for today! If you haven't been to a LUSH store before and don't have anything planned for V-Day then you should check it out this weekend (or if you live in the UK, during HALF TERM!)! 

I was thinking about doing reviews of each product I try out for you all to see. 

What do you think? Please leave me a comment!

♥  Hello my little cuties!!  

We have already opened the door to February which means that there is one special event coming up in a couple of weeks... Valentines Day! I for one don't have a significant other to enjoy my valentines day with and instead like to spend my time doing fun stuff on my own or with my friends. This post is catered for the lucky couples who get to spend time together on this special day, that may be in a bind trying to think of something to get for their lovers. 


Whether you're in a relationship during valentines day or not, the 14th of February is a day where you get the chance to tell your friends or your family that you love them, so using this chance to present them with a gift or a bear hug is a great way to showcase your love! 

Here are some of the things that I would want to give and receive for Valentines Day!

☆ Minae's Adventures | Trip to Victorias Secret! ☆

Monday, 2 February 2015

Hello all! 

I present to you yet another delayed post that was supposed to come out in the beginning of January. To be totally honest with you all, I feel like I've "finally" started the new year. January was filled with transitions into new classes and meeting new people, as well as ending relationships with many people I've known for years. I also had to completely revamp my daily schedule to fit in exercise hours, new college time table, and other general stuff, so now that I've got the hang of it all I feel like I've officially started 2015 today... a month after it actually started xD

A few weeks back me and two friends decided to take a trip to Central London because "WE HAVEN'T BEEN THERE SINCE LAST YEAR" which was at that point, literally only 4 days into 2015. I went to many places such as my beloved Oxford Street, Bond Street, Leicester Sq, Piccadilly Circus, Westminster, Waterloo, Hyde Park, the list goes on. 

Towards the end of the trip before heading home, we decided to go to Old Bond street. What I'd forgotten was that Old Bond Street houses the UK flagship store of Victoria's Secret!!

When we turned the corner and looked ahead of us to see the store glowing so brightly in the winter night I went absolutely mortal and immediately started dragging my friends towards the store to see all the stunning products they were selling. 

A few weeks before our trip there, Victoria's Secret just finished their annual fashion show which was held in London, so we were able to see most of the outfits that they wore (WITH THE WINGS) hung up or displayed all over the store. 

The way the VS display their lingerie in stores, so simple yet effective. Even with all the cute bra's surrounding the mannequins, the main pieces stand out so well and look great!

This was the outfit from the PINK section of the fashion show.

I loved the way this was displayed. It looks to cute yet sexy at the same time. If I had my own house I would layout my perfumes and body mists like that

I didn't buy anything from there, because the two things I was actually looking for (a VS Makeup bag, and Pure Seduction body mist) was out of stock, which is understandable because It was just after Christmas! 

One thing I was surprised to see was Miranda Kerr's photo still hung up at the check out desks? I thought she wasn't a VS Angel anymore since she didn't take part in the Fashion Show 2 years in a row. Nonetheless, I was so so so happy to see her there because she's one of my favorite VSAngel's and favorite Model! 

What blew me away was that this store was 3 stories high, not including the Pink section which had it's own floor. So 4 floors in total?! I wanted to buy every single thing in stock and then some. Overall I had a really fun time at the store, and will definitely be going back there soon!
