♥My 7 Links Project♥

The wonderful Caroline ofSpooning with a Schoolboynominated me for the My 7 Links Project – her post is here.

The point of the project is to unite bloggers (from all sectors) in a joint endeavor to share lessons learned and create a bank of long but not forgotten blog posts that deserve to see the light of day again.”
So away we go~ 

My Most Beautiful Post

Kamakura is such a lovely place to visit for the day, so the memories (not only the scenery) of Kamakura are really beautiful to me.


My Most Popular Post

My 2nd ever post! I translated a quiz from an issue of Ageha which determines your eye type and what kind of make-up would suit it, along with a tutorial. I never expected this to be so popular, especially as it had so few comments.
My Most Controversial Post
This post was from a CNN-GO article that was based on a rather controversial topic – dressing children like adults. The journalist’s lack of knowledge and poor writing style aside, it raised quite a few questions and discussions.

My Most Helpful Post
This is also one of my most popular posts and I think one of my most helpful too. I wanted to review Japanese hair dyes (specifically ones aimed at gals) as I know lots of Western gals may want to try them at some point but they don’t know how they will turn out.
A Post Whose Success Surprised Me

At the beginning of this year I felt the need to express my opinions on gal and where I stand with it. I was so happy to see that I wasn’t alone in my thoughts and that so many people offered me their kindness and advice. Thank you all!!

A Post I Feel Didn’t Get The Attention It Deserved

This was only a small series with 2 posts on former EGG models (Hiromi and Natsumi) and where they are today. I was hoping for a positive response to these as I wanted to go further with them but they weren’t as popular as I had hoped.

The Post I’m Most Proud Of 

Once again I’m being a bit cheeky and picking a series rather than an individual post, but I have to mention this as I was so proud of the reactions and feedback I got on these. I really wanted to help bring a positive vibe to the Western gal community. I’m actually thinking of carrying this on (when I get some spare time) but with a new look. What do you guys think?

☆Blog Awards☆

First off, a massively big thank you to Tori and Emilie who both gave me blog awards recently I am very grateful!!
The rules of accepting this award are… 
  1. Say something about the person who gave you the award; Where do I start? Toni has been with me since the beginning *sniff* haha. She’s such a gorgeous, wonderful person and her blog reflects this perfectly!
  2. Write something about yourself, and your aim with your blog; I don’t really have a specific aim. I just want to blog about the things I love and hopefully help bring interesting posts to my followers. Although I think my aim has changed slightly this year, with wanting to make my blog a bit more personal, more like a lifestyle blog maybe. I just hope I’m doing ok haha
  3. Give the award to 9 bloggers you love; FiripaJELLY AnnaSamiEmyJennyYaptusMikaCindyInstantmint
The award from Emilie asks that I tell you 7 random facts about myself, so here we go
  1. Gal is the first real ‘label-fashion’ I have followed.
  2. I’m not really a fan of Japanese music and actually prefer American artists. 
  3. I’m not a girly-girl but I love pink!
  4. I also love Agejo/D.I.A etc. styles but I don’t think they suit me.
  5. I have been dying my hair since I was around 13 years old.
  6. Lately I’ve been getting inspiration from European and American bloggers.
  7. I really miss Tokyo but I’ll be sad to leave Paris, and I want to go back to England. 
I’m also passing this award onto 7 other lovely bloggers; ♥EmmieMaikoMiss WaveMieEmiTricia
