New Bags!

Hello everyone.

Yesterday was very exciting, with lots of TV broadcasts focusing on the royal wedding between William and Kate. Everything was so wonderful and beautiful, which as a wedding (and a very famous one at that), is to be expected. I find it amazing that it is like a fairytale coming true, with a real happily ever after. I'm usually one to believe that fairy tales are real and can exist in reality, so this was "the frosting on the cake" (also a big believer in cakes) and was very exciting to watch. So a late congratulations to the couple!

Anyway, I was suppose to post this yesterday, but late night fatigue combined with a frustrated night with the camera's batteries made me tired (which took me forever with taking a few pictures). I might need to buy some new rechargeable batteries if the current ones aren't cutting it. I was also looking up tutorials on replacing my Home/Newer/Older Post links with images, but more on that later. So yesterday my mom gave me two new bags, which I didn't discover until I opened my closet door. They are not the regular bags found in any bag store/department, but are the bags that you can only get if you buy something dollars or more in cosmetics or fragrances (You: Oh no. You don't mean... Me: Yup! Makeup bags! :D).

Changing from Ordinary to Princess

What's in the ordinary? What's in the princess? Sometimes when I'm not busy with the usual business that is life, I ponder back onto these questions. It's not only the questions, but the whole idea of the transition from something ordinary to something glamorous or "out there", such as a princess.

I have to admit, almost all of my life revolves around the ordinary or the normal, and I don't have a tendency to stand out or find any appeal in standing out. I had and have been a "wallflower" in every sense. I also have a tendency with speaking in soft tones or at least speak very quietly. I am very sensitive towards other people and don't want them to hear what I'm saying. All in all, I am a very shy person. I wasn't as bad as before, where even I had trouble talking to other people or at least try to avoid talking to other people. I can now talk to other people with no problems, albeit with a few some stuttering here and there. Due to my wallflower personality and quiet nature, I tend to have a modest lifestyle, which generally includes my fashion choices. Throughout most, if not all of my entire life, school tends to be the main focus along with the occasional game. I was very studious and tend to not focus on girly things such as makeup, nails, and shopping. In fact, I used to hate shopping, since it was so boring and the only time I went out shopping back then was with my mom. I guess in a way (could be a very big way) I am making up for that now and it all started when one of my friends introduced me to the wonderful concepts of shopping and fashion (yes, I was that deprived).

As for how I exactly got into the Himegyaru lifestyle, I am not exactly sure how long I have been into the style, but it definitely had been a while, way before I had started the blog. I recall that I had seen a few stuff relating to "Hime" while browsing on my favourite deco site, Fullmoon. Me being the curious person that I am had decided to investigate (who wouldn't be curious?). Turned out that the Hime stuff that I was looking at was indirectly linked to Himegyaru, judging by the browsing and searching that I had done. To my pleasant surprise, himegyaru was (and still is) depicted as being a very girly and frilly style. At first I was just looking at the style, amazed at how "princess-like" (duh xD) they were, but I guess I wasn't fully into the style until later on when I came across the style again.  It was at that moment that I decided to fully pursue the Hime style and learn everything there is to be one, though I had help from Violet's blog and was fully inspired by Violet's bravery as a himegyaru, despite a possibility of getting weird looks. 

Sometimes I wonder about whether or not the transition from being that of an ordinary person to that of a princess will be drastically different and if it will be worth it. Obviously it will impact my life in a big way, considering that I did not change at all since my high school years (what one of my friends apparently said...) and making such a drastic change in a short amount of time will definitely take some getting used to. Will I get weird looks as a himegyaru? Probably. It will be a given that any fashion that's very out there will get the weird looks. Now I have to admit that I don't exactly take criticism well (still working on getting tougher skin) and this alone might be the end of my himegyaru style ventures, but just like anything in the world, even fashion can be a learning experience and the hime style will be just that, a learning experience that will build up as you grow and learn while looking fabulous. Will the transition from ordinary to princess be drastically different? Of course it will be. Will the transformation be worth it? In my mind yes because:

Once Upon a Time...

There is a first time for everything. Starting a blog isn't an exception and I guess the prospect of typing up a first post is both intimidating and interesting. Intimidating since I'm not quite sure how to start off (Did I type this correctly? Have I missed anything crucial that I need to add in? etc.) and interesting since starting a blog is like making your first steps in the great unknown. You can never know what you are going to expect once you are out there. Of course, I could just be making this out to be a bigger deal than what it really is.

Why did I create a blog? Before I had created this blog, I was (and still is) on the hunt for anything himegyaru-related. Blogs, images, the usual Jesus Diamante website, you name it. It didn't occur to me back then, but while I was searching, I noticed that there weren't a lot of active hime blogs. Of course, there are definitely exceptions, such as the famous Violet LeBeauxStarre Princess, and even The Princess in Training. There are possibly plenty more out there that I'm not aware about, but I mostly found active content relating to the above blogs. In my never-ending quest to achieving the full himegyaru lifestyle, I figured that keeping a blog will help keep track of my progress. That and possibly helping out any others interested in the himegyaru lifestyle.

Now with all that being said, it's time for the journey to begin, starting with "Once upon a time"...
