4th Intl Gyaru Lovers Winter Meet-up

Hello everyone~
Here I am again after a long time. I know I said I'd blog much more but I didn't have anything to blog about, except maybe my meet-ups with my dear friends. But since I always post a lot of pictures on my instagram, I didn't want to just "copy" everything in here. Please check my instagram out if you want to see more updates of me! I post a lot of outfit pictures and other fun stuff on it.


Let's start with what I actually wanted to blog about! 
The big annual Gyaru Winter Meet-up in Frankfurt am Main, Germany.

It was such a great weekend, I was so happy to see all of my friends again and have a nice weekend after all the university stress going on before. Ina, Sui, Brandon and me drove over to Frankfurt on friday already because we didn't want to stress ourselfs as much as last year. First we thought about seeing some of our friends but when we were in our hotel/hostel, we didn't want to move anymore and just wanted to lay in bed, cozy, and talk. We wore our Kigurumi or cozy pijamas and I mean didn't we look fabulous? The staff was really surprised when they saw us...

On Saturday the big meet-up took place. We first met everyone at the train station just like last year and surprise we were part of the first ones arriving. That's a first. I was so happy to see a lot of my friends again which I didn't see in a really long time and I was just running around to talk to everyone while Ina and Sui went to McDonald's to not freeze to death. Btw here's my outfit and make-up from that day~ (Riina photobombing me of course)




When everyone was there, we went to the venue the hosts rented for us. It was really nice! It was a really good idea to do so. (please click on all the pictures to look at them in HQ)

The hosts planned a whole schedule at the venue which was really nice. In between I tried to talk to a lot of people too, but it's so hard! There were so many and I often talked to someone and then we got stuck in a conversation. That might be the reason why I didn't take that many pictures. I got to know new people too and I can only say it again: I am so thankfull for this meet-up! On this picture you see the venue a bit and my table with my babies on the right.


On the schedule there were an introduction, a little bring and buy, para para, the giveaway and the awards. When Kitai and Kyo made the introduction, I told my friends at my table that I bet they forgot that I come from Luxembourg and that they might add me to the girls from NRW, Germany. But I thought wrong! They didn't forget me~ cutie pies called me on stage with the girls from Spain. I felt like a stupid unicorn again as the only Gal from Luxembourg. I wonder if I'll always be the only one. I found one picture, from the cute Lau, of me on stage. (please don't mind my weird pose)

The awards were, to be honest, a part I didn't really look forward to. I don't like these things because it starts some kind of rivalry, which I hate. We could vote in different cathegories for "the best" from one of the people attending the meet-up. Big minus: not knowing all the names was the worst when you wanted to nominate someone. Maybe next time we should get name tags or do the awards a bit later after everyone could talk a bit more with each other. Nevertheless it was quite nice, because everyone was cheering for each other. I even got nominated twice ;^; In Best Rokku Gyaru and Most Unique Style and I am sooooo thankfull for that! I didn't win, of course not because my friends Ina and Sui won in those cathegories, which I think is perfect. I have to admit that it made me feel really happy and more confident too. As a girl from Luxembourg, which seems to be the only Gyaru in that small country (at least active in the community), I always thought that people wouldn't see me. That they thought I'm not worth looking at because of my heritage. It might sound silly but I got so much negative feedback in Luxembourg for my style that it made me feel "unwanted". The meet-up itself and the awards made me realize that I'm part of something really big and I am happy where I am now. I am happy with who I am now and with the friends I have. It just feels right, which is the reason why I want to meet as many of my friends as possible and as often as possible too. I mean look at me and my friends, we were so happy on that day:




These are only a few of the pictures I took or friends of me took of us. I didn't want to put too many in here but I love every each one and saved every picture I could find. It makes me so happy to look at them and remember the great time together. When I saw the pictures friends of me took, I had to laugh. I mean look for yourself:

I swear, this is NOT the only picture where I make a silly face, more to come. After we finished the schedule at the venue, we went to a karaoke bar and later we went clubbing all together. It was sooooo much fun! I always love that part so much. Let the pictures talk for themselfs~

Kukki and me having way~ too much fun!
picture by Lau, stupid me...
Oh man... you get now what I mean? Lately it is so hard to find a good picture of myself from other people. I have the talent to pull a stupid face every freaking time.

clubbing group picture!
Well well well, we all went home the day after and we were all so happy and we still are. 

Thanks to Kitai and Kyo for organising the meet-up, the staff for helping and all the people who came. Hope to see you all next year!

Last but not least, our fabulous huge group picture!


Thank you all!
♡ xoxo ♡
