31: Merry Christmas, darlings~

Howdy Y'all <3
just wanted to wish you a merry christmas!
I've just come out of a 22 hour power cut (eep) and it's really made me grateful for all the mod-cons that I often take for granted (like wifi... I am tumblr addicted for sure) so make sure to take notice of them this christmas... or something?
But overall, I hope it's really magical and you have a fun time with the people you love <3
so cheesy... nevermind
Have a great Christmas, and I hope 2014 is fab for you all!

30: Bring Me The Horizon and Pierce The Veil live 6.11.13

hey kids~

***another super fangirl-y post coming up***

it's been over a month since I saw Bring Me The Horizon live (and I still haven't posted this for so long, eep!I promise I'll get back to more regular blogging soon!)
they played the O2 academy brixton as part of their crooked young world tour
It was super amazing!
I'd never been to a live with so many people there (Brixton has a capacity of 5,000 I think) so it was a leetle scary at first!
First was a Canadian band called sights and sounds
they were ok, but the vocals were very quiet so I couldn't really hear it that well :c
I didn't get any pictures either
Then it was Pierce the Veil :D they were so good! they played:

Bulls in the Bronx
May these noises startle you in your sleep tonight
Hell Above
Bulletproof Love
Hold On Till May
A Match Into Water
Stained Glass Eyes and Colorful Tears
King For A Day

hold on till may was super emotional, but I think my favourite is still caraphernalia 

 and then... BMTH! 
Omg, it was fabulous!
I haven't been to a live of a heavy band like BMTH before so I kind of didn't know what to expect... it didn't help that people kept telling me 'Omg BMTH fans are really vicious, you will die' 
but in the end it was fine :) more than fine, actually! it was fab~ the only problem was, I got separated from my boyfriend and our friends really early on ;_; we were pulled apart by the crowd 
I panicked a bit trying to find him (so many guys there with the same hairstyle, srsly) but then i thought to myself I should just enjoy it and not worry 
the set list was: 

can you feel my heart
shadow moses
diamonds aren't forever
the house of wolves
go to hell for heaven's sake
and the snakes start to sing
empire (let them sing)
it never ends
chelsea smile
blessed with a curse

it was all so good! I want to go back ;_;
antivist was totally insane!! and Oli was shouting stuff like 'if you break a bone, you won't have to go into school' and 'kill kill kill' ... ... 
I now understand why people are scared of BMTH. 
apart from that, another stand out for me was go to hell for heavens sake, which was the first BMTH song I ever heard 
also, Oli is so northern! I want a northern accent so badly! also, I only got like half a picture because my phone camera is bad and I was really far back 
So I just gave up in the end.... anyway, enjoy these blurry pictures :D

29: VAMPS Live 7.10.13

Ahh, I have neglected this poor blog for so long ;_;
so, what has been going on in the life of Amy lately?
I got a boyfriend, I've started the last year of school and applied to universities (so scary) 

also, I went to see VAMPS and then Bring Me The Horizon and Pierce the veil live :D 
but today I wanted to talk about: VAMPS! they were all kinds of fabulous! 

~~be prepared guys, this post is picture-heavy and full of fangirling ^^ ~~

I went to see them with my sister at the O2 academy islington~ because its a fairly small venue, even though we started queuing fairly late (at about 5) we were in like the 8th row!! much closer than I was expecting, considering how long the hardcore fangirls had been queuing :3 

4 THE PAST (english version)
8 MEMORIES (english version)
10 Life on Mars?
13 ANGEL TRIP (english version)
17 SWEET DREAMS (english version)
everyone was super into it! 
especially when they played 'hunter' and HYDE was saying things like 'I want to suck your blood' :) also, I think it was during ANGEL TRIP, he said 'let's sneak away from the party, just us two'
another highlight for me was when they covered David Bowie's 'Life on Mars?' I love David Bowie, and VAMPS, so it was great! I may or may not have cried a little bit, hehe :)
the live finished at around 11, but i got home around 12.30
aaand then school the next day ;_;
but, HYDE promised us he'll come back soon~ 
and a while ago, I completed this survey about a l'arc~en~ciel '20XX world tour'
if you go on their official website:
you can vote for your favourite songs and where you'd like to see them play :D
everyone, vote for London!!
I hope I can see them again~ 
do you all like VAMPS and/ or l'aruku? :D 
Here, have some amazingly blurry pictures :D
P.s: look! VAMPS were in KERRANG! they also printed a poster, but I had already got the big version >>> it's like A2 or something :) and it only cost £2!!
(now HYDE and KAZ can watch me while I sleep, hehe ^^)
right, TTFN (^O^)/

28: more OOTDs

Hello darlings~ how are we all?
Good, i hope?
I have a few outfits to share this time :3
Lately, I've felt a bit uninspired so they all kind of look the same :c
I need winter to come back!!!
And soon it's school again, so i won't be able to wear what i want anyway *sobs*
But, enough moaning, have some pictures <3

so, that's all for now~ dig you hip cats later, hm? (^O^)/ xoxo

27: APOCALYZE ordered :D

Guess which amazingly beautiful album will soon be in Amy's possession?
picture from CROSSFAITH's website
That's right, APOCALYZE by the amazing CROSSFAITH
I preordered it from Amazon the other day~
It has 12 tracks:

  1. Prelude
  2. We Are The Future
  3. Hounds Of The Apocalypse
  4. Eclipse
  5. The Evolution
  6. Scarlett
  7. Gala Hala (Burn Down The Floor)
  8. Countdown to Hell
  9. Deathwish
  10. Counting Stars
  11. Burning White
  12. Only The Wise Can Control Our Eyes

Only £10.61! And it's released in the UK on the 9th september :D
I'll be sure to blog about it~
(but it's probably going to be just random fangirling and not all that informative)
The only ones I know are Eclipse, Hounds Of The Apocalypse and We Are The Future, which they've released on their Youtube
but it looks to be a pretty good album
Do you guys like CROSSFAITH? because you should. A lot. My favourite tracks are Jagerbomb, Monolith, Snake Code and We Are The Future.
They're all exciting to listen to, especially really loudly (great way of annoying the parents, hehe) 
Anyway, that's enough from me... Go get yourselves some CROSSFAITH to listen to :D
TTFN (^O^)/

26: OOTDs from my holiday

Howdy, folks~
How is everyone's summer going?
I only have 2 weeks left of mine :c 
recently I've been too lazy to blog much.... (sorry >///<);
I seem to have spent most of my days mindlessly scrollling or crying in a corner
actually, I've been pretty sociable as well <3
so here's a few OOTDs 
both of these were lazy-ass days, hence the super-plain outfits :L

somehow the trilby makes me feel really 'fashionable' :D
badges   > 

new shirt aaah
image from because you can
never have too many pictures of L'arc~en~ciel
<this shirt. I wanted this for so long... it makes me feel like Ken from L'aruku :3

Also, I need to cut my hair. A lot. maybe by my next post, I'll have cut it? (I ordered some new scissors from Amazon yesterday) also it's gone kind of orange, hasn't it?
Soon I'll need to bleach it out for school :c

sorry, this post is all over the place, hehe :L
also, I can't seem to get it to look nice and pretty for y'all :C
next time, I'll update quicker! and make it make sense (maybe)
see you hip cats later~ xoxo

25: OOTDs and PINK HAIR?

hey, various internet pals~ 
how's it hanging?
IT'S SUMMER IN THE UK?! like, with heat and stuff..... we as a nation are like hideously unprepared for this!
so anyway, outfits:
this was from the other day:
 saw my friend tasha for a catch up~
last outfit without the PINK IN MY HAIR AAAGH.........

<<what kind of face am i making there? haha
(the outfit makes me look a little bit like a tramp.......... nevermind)
the hair looks like I have been attacked by a bunch of six year olds with highlighters........
that is the only way i can think of describing it (>///<)
I kind of like it, but I wanted it to be pastel... I have a lot to learn about hair colouring!
I used directions carnation pink and i diluted it, but.......................
next time, I need to tone my hair beforehand, hm?
maybe it will fade out a bit as I wash it? I'll keep you guys posted :D

it's also the 25th post I've done on this blog? somehow, that makes me rdiculously happy :D
I don't often stick at things, but blogging is actually pretty fun ^^ I hope that it's fun to read, too~
dig you later (^O^)/

24: NATSUYASUMI!!!!!!*

* summer holiday in Japanese
How are we all?
I'm great because I'm 
I have a summer of blissful procrastination ahead of me!
or rather, I'm going to try and make it not like that, hehe (>////<);
I'll let you know how that goes.
Probably, I'm going to spend the summer on tumblr.
but, I thought I'd share some of my summer goals with y'all

Summer goals:
  • lose weight
  • try different styles like fairy kei, rokku gyaru +visual kei that I never have the courage to make coords of
  • dye my hair pink
  • be better at blogging
  • not get a tan
  • sleep more, stress less
  • meet up with my friends more
  • less 'what if' and more 'carpe diem'
  • go to lives
  • do some more crafting
  • do more exercise
  • eat more healthily
  • make some new friends
  • go up to London more
  • get organised for next year
  • do lots of reading
  • become a guitar-samurai (practise every day)
  • listen to different music apart from SuG
  • try and avoid the inevitable SuG-hiatus related existential crisis that I seem to be having weekly at the moment
  • try and avoid existential crisises (crises?) all together
  • take more pictures and document my *fantastic adventures*
  • try and get a job
  • watch lots of asian dramas and anime
  • watch adventure time

wow, that's a lot. I suspect that the only ones that will actually get done are the 'watch anime and dramas'
TTFN~ (^O^)/


23: quick apology (ToT)

Hello, darlings~
how are we all? having a good summer?
sorry for the unannounced break from blogging..... let's just say that it was due to 'technical issues' (hours of me crying, swearing and throwing things at the computer, hehe) 
but, I got the blog back up and running <3 
I had a couple of drafts already saved, so I'm going to go ahead and post them for y'all
then I'm going to do a quick 'update' on what I've been doing these days 
(clue: not all that much)
and then, I feel the need to do some more pointless gushing about Jrockers as well <3
< maybe I'll do a post on these attractive males right there
so, that's the plan :D
see you in a bit (^O^)/

22: random update and OOTDs~

Hello darlings~
I hope you're enjoying the summery sun we've all been having (clue: I'm not)
I miss wearing scarves. and long sleeves
maybe if i try hard enough to ignore it, the sun will go away? pleeeaaaase?
so, lately I've been to looaads of places like Cambridge, Brighton, Parliament 
but I didn't have a camera with me
so have some outfit pictures instead <3

 This one was for my lovely Ronnie's party- it was meant to be a megurine luka casual cosplay, but... it kind of turned pastel goth-ish?
I don't know. 
Anyway, what do you guys think of the wig? It's been a long time since I wore it, and it also got TANGLED AS FXXK. ugh.

with my cat ears I bought from MCM expo. *Nyan nyan*

 .....this one was when I went to go see my friend play the ukelele- check out her YouTube here (but she hasn't uploaded anything in aaages *sigh*

look at my hideous unstyled hair

actually, don't look

I was going to dye it pink or something for summer- what do you guys think? 

do you guys like the shirt, btw? it was only £3 from men's H&M!!


I want to fill up all the blank space in this post... 

here, have a picture of Kuina (pretty men solve all problems, hm?)

seriously, he's so pretty.

oh, oh, if you guys have a tumblr, feel free to check me out:

aaand that's it for now~ It's nearly summer holidays here in the sunny ole' UK, so I'll try to post more often, hm?
ja ne (^O^)/ xoxo


Sunday 14 July 2013


Hi all~
I've been wanting to post about music that I like for a while,
because I like to gush pointlessly about things a lot
so rather than have structure or anything, I thought I'd just leap right in there and start talking about VAMPS

why VAMPS? 
Vamps<<<<yes, please
I only found out about the tickets on the day they were being sold (the 5th) thanks to Chriss' blog post about it- I was on the bus to school so I had a very loud bitch fit over the phone to my dad
I was actually crying, (out of love for HYDE, not just because I'm an emotional wreck, ahahahha)
It has literally given me a reason to live. at least, until October the 7th when my heart may just explode.
It's been a while since I went to a live (not for want of trying on my part, sigh)
so I'm happy

actually, recently I was listening to VAMPS a lot (even before I found out about their tour) so it seems like my prayers for a good live to go to have been answered.

key points to remember about VAMPS:

  • members: L'arc~en~ciel vocalist HYDE and KAZ of oblivion dust
  • formed: 2008
  • their new single:AHEAD/REPLAY is also just out- listen to the teasers here and here
  • albums: Vamps, Beast and I think a new album called sex blood rock and roll
  • unbelievably sexy and ghkjashfawkur;dxzsj,jhsakhvbf.ea\
  • I'm going to stop there for now....
the tickets are sold out now, but if anyone else is going, see you there? (^O^)/

20: Kamenashi Kazuya appreciation post

so, I just finished watching 'Yokai Ningen Bem' and am currently crying my eyes out. a lot.
I got so emotionally invested in this Drama because Kame is so hot  because it was super well written and some of the themes of wanting to be accepted etc. really resonated with me. And, there's a movie!! ahahahahaha
(seriously though. so hot.)
I first found out about Kame through watching the drama 'Yamato Nadeshiko Shichi Henge' and made up my mind to watch ALL OF THE KAME DRAMAS
...I'm working on it.
so far I've watched:
Nobuta wo Produce
Yamato Nadeshiko Shichi Henge
1 Pound Gospel
maybe next I'm going to watch Tatta Hitotsu no koi?

he's taller than me, I think <3 176 cm?
(this doesn't happen that often, sadly)
idk, all i know about him is from wikipedia, hehe

but I could sit here all day fangirling (and that's probably what I will do, forget studying)
TTFN (^O^)/
(p.s.) does the font look better bold, or does it make no difference. I want to make sure that it is nice to read <3

19: To-do lists, OOTDs and chaos

ok, I'm being slightly melodramatic now. 
But, I'm in a leetle bit of a mess (my own fault, I procrastinate too much) so much so that my last to-do list said simply 'SORT THE CHAOS.' and 'go on tumblr' (the reason for the chaos?)
I'd take a picture to show you, but, I've lost it (>///<);      so, outfits~

This was from the school fete, so it was pretty casual :D
But, I only rolled up one sleeve by accident and I got sunburnt! only on the one arm! it looks really strange :s 
 I need to stop wearing the same stuff all the time, *sigh*.
 So, I bought this shirt :D
also, I tried not using heat styling on my hair except for drying it, what do you think? (personally, I don't like it but I need to look after my poor frazzled hair, hehe)

 I wore this outfit to a music festival type thing near where I live
It was really fun :D
I wanted to look cool with this outfit, hehe
(it's kind of ruined by the fact the shirt actually says YOLO, hehe)
 I had no regrets buying this shirt. 

I hope you're all well and sparkling! Summer is nearly here, hang in there, guys!! (^O^)/
