Can we get a thread for cute clothes websites, particularly for lolcows in the UK who don't want to pay for shipping?

What are some good websites and clothing shops in the UK you guys recommend?

what's even worse is that I came from PULL and only got to there from lurking g_s. (I've sadly been here for almost 2 years now? shit. didn't think it was that long)… so PULL users have 0 excuse if my non-imageboard using ass can figure it out.

Regardless: I am interested in cute clothing links… but cute is really kind of subjective on here I think.. so OP needs to be a bit more specific and narrow it down style-wise. Quality would also be concern. I know a lot of those generic asian clothing sites that jack images from other places now seem to give really… not good products. I'd ordered from on eBay like, 5-6 years ago and they were pretty good and slightly cheaper than now, but I seem to see a lot of people complain about quality now so I am hesitant to buy from these sources now.

Do the japanese have particular skin routines and beauty routines or ways of makeover to achieve looking so clear faced and young?

if so where on the internet does one find these things, are there any particular rules they have? I know there's an asian diet thread but I'm thinking more about skincare and beauty

I think part of it is genetics, followed by avoiding the sun at all costs and using whitening products. There are even shots (vitamin c?) that people can get to make them whiter.

I've definitely noticed this myself, even without makeup. I think white people tend to look less white because of sun damage (even light freckles will make you look darker) and not caring about being super light.

>tfw got a massive tax return and started going back to work regularly after depression

I just paid off my entire Paypal credit of $850, my Target redcard bill, and I'm all caught up with my monthly bills. Not too long ago I also paid off the last of a $2k medical bill too.
I don't know if anyone else uses Paypal but their damned "hurr 6 months no interest" is a really dangerous trap to fall into, I bought so much shit because of that. But hey, at least the interest wasn't collected on my actual credit card had I made the purchases with that instead I guess. Beware.

Now all I have to do is tackle a $3.2k credit card debt and all I'll have left is my student loan to worry about. Ah hah…ha, ha, ha. Fuck. But it's progress!

Animu shit mostly, manga, games, blu-rays, figures.

The problem is I buy them to help with depression, then I'm too depressed to play/watch/read them.

Figures are nice, but after awhile I feel guilty for having them. Shopping helps me feel alive though, I love just adding to my Amazon wishlist and Etsy favorites. But on top of weeb shit, I want clothes, makeup, housewares, everything.

Can you buy happiness?

This is probably a really stupid question but how do I be more like those girls on Instagram and social media who are just uniform beautiful? Perfect eyebrows and somehow perfect fashion sense, you could even count the whole basic bitch thing but I'm hoping someone knows what I mean. How do I be more like the majority of the girls I see on the street with perfect clothes and hair and bodies?

I'm 22 and feel pretty much like Tomoko Kuroki in comparision. I'm very short and curvy, but my height and baby face make me feel like I stand no chance and I have no clue where to go for makeup or fashion resources that these girls all learn from and perfect.

I really want to finally feel more like a pretty young woman, anyone got any resources or tips?

makeup tutorials can definitely help with makeup and grooming- just be careful not to go overboard like most beauty gurus.

another thing to remember- pretty much everyone on social media with any sort of following uses editing apps. they don't look like that in real life. no shame in shopping your pics if you want to look that beautiful too (just own up to it of course.)

One thing that makes people look beautiful on the internet is honestly being interesting. I'm not saying "ooh ur inside needs to be beautiful not ur outside" I'm saying, look how much lolcow tears into people who just stare vapidly at their cameras and shoop themselves into aliens. No one envies that.

Find hobbies, if you take a beautiful photo of yourself reading a book, watching the sunset, finishing a bike ride, painting a picture, you will look so much more beautiful than someone who rolls around on the floor trying to find the perfect angle and lighting.
lol i sound like a neckbeard but I'm actually just a woman who went through exactly the kind of painful envy you did. I feel a million times more attractive now that I can do makeup well, bathe regularly (I was gross), have good skin and have lost 20 pounds- but what really made me feel better about myself was finding shit about what I enjoyed and who I was.
I'm an artist and as soon as I put my all into painting, I felt better about myself. I took better care of myself because I had an identity to care about.
Obviously, art's not for everyone, but make sure you've got something you're passionate about OP, otherwise you're decorating an empty shell and that's not exactly motivating.

Also, diverging from that, make sure you have routines(diet/hygine/skincare/exercise). Consistency is the only thing that improves appearance.

Last week at work my trainer started talking to me about her group of friends and how they have one person in their group who claims to be depressed and is obnoxious about it or something. I mean, fine, fair enough I guess, being depressed isn't an excuse to be a dick to people. But then my trainer said something that really caught me off guard, "I mean, if you're so depressed, you know what you can do… hahaha"

I may be misinterpreting what she meant, but it sounded like she was suggesting they should kill themselves. As someone who's been dealing with depression for a while (though I'm really closed off about it) it was a really jarring thing to hear.

Is it wrong that I feel that "normies" who think this way are more mentally fucked up than anything? People who lack empathy for others genuinely frighten me… and It's been seeming like more and more people are that way lately. When I hear someone who's had an incredibly easy life start talking like they're an authority figure on mental illness I just go "ah, fuck" and try and tune it out but it always leaves a bad taste in my mouth.

Mine actually asked me if I knew what it was because she figured from our conversation that I do have it. Yours might do it too, if not, I'd say ask about it, say that you've heard of it and that you can relate to it so they might go deeper into that.

Recently they've (the higher ups) switched me to cognitive behavioral therapy to deal with my depression and PTSD which should've been an easier transition, but it's not.

I've grown attached to my previous therapist and idk how to handle the transition from one therapist to another (in the "emotional sense) as this never happened to me before in the past couple of years since I've been with my local mental health agency.

She was a lot easier to talk, connect with and open up to about my past and present tense issues going on in my family/environment.

She helped me realize a lot through weeks and weeks of talking and reflecting over my past and present along with giving me the resources I need to "escape".

Is there a way to overcome this? As from now on I can no longer speak with her now after I got switched to cognitive behavioral therapy unless I want to give a future update regarding myself.

This is so…strange to me.

personally, I think she went through a similar situation and gave her insight/opinion (something therapists are not supposed to do) on what to do about it. She also once mentioned being in a mental hospital before. Which kinda explains why it was so easier to connect.

There isn't a j-fashion thread anymore so here's one. Talk about tips, makeup, hair tutorials, coords, jfash in general etc.

Pic related has cute makeup (though it's personally too much for me, I don't wear lenses). I usually prefer the very girly look for clothes (ruffly skirts, blouses, long socks, "kawaii" high heels, blouses, cardigans, lots of pink and white, etc) but it's almost always too over the top for me to wear in real life :(

does anyone know where to get tops that are a sort of mix between cute and sexy (like pic related) fitted tops are pretty much the only thing that look good on me and since I have short hair I try to wear more cutesy and sexy stuff so I don't look like a boy. it's hard to find clothes like that, but I really like to wear shirts with wide keyholes or cut outs but still look cute.

Is it okay to find other girls objectively sexier than your girlfriend?

My boyfriend says he has a lot of attraction towards me and that he finds me incredibly sexy but that in terms of looks (not emotions) there's lots of cosplayers and girls that he finds objectively prettier, sexier, has more lustful reactions looking at

More than from me but he loves me and he would never cheat on me or act upon it

Is this normal? Please give me the blunt reality.

Oh man you shouldn't have pressed him. Most guys are absolute idiots and won't understand that such a question is really a call for reassurance, so they'll answer honestly. You should never ask a question if you're not ready for the answer. Yes, it's normal anon. Don't overthink it, it's not a problem unless it interferes with your intimacy or if it seemed like he was enjoying talking about it.

No. 56982


I'm relieved it's normal, and not that I'm ugly

Like, it's normal to love your girlfriend and see her as sexy but objectively have more desire to fuck women you find sexier and thus that makes them more desirable from looks alone? No emotions and I don't mean acting upon it, but he's admitted that yes, objectively there's women he has more desire to fuck than me/finds sexier. THAT'S the bit I've not been sure if other guys feel.

No. 56984


It's normal.

I can objectively see men who are considered "more physcially attractive" than my boyfriend. That being said I don't want to sleep with them more than I do with my boyfriend.

I know my boyfriend finds certain women more physically attractive than me (for example a porn star or actress) but he would not cheat one me.

He likes very large breasts and although I have small ones, he is always touching me there, playing with them etc, telling me they are sexy. Sometimes I do notice him oggle a picture of a hot model with large breasts but it doesn't bother me since I know it's only fantasy.

Wtf dump his ass. Correct response from bf:

I was wondering… has anyone got any good advice or felt good from posting on the boards?

Like, for example; learning to try to be a better person or any positive things in general? I've been here for a while, and I really enjoy the boards and learned a lot… I guess, this thread is about learning new things and positive things - even if there were negative things posted about others.

Has Lolcow been a catalyst for you, and in what ways?

I always try to help anons when possible. I've offered help in diet threads, body issues, etc etc. And that makes me feel better. Not sure if I really helped people, but I tried and that's good.
I also got a few nice replies all the times I had to vent, and I appreciate the help.
Unfortunately, I think most of the time lolcow makes me feel kinda insecure because people bitch a lot and nitpick, which is fine and expected, but I have serious self esteem problems. so seeing people call some girl that looks healthy and normal an ugly, fat hambeast makes me feel pretty shitty. That's a personal problem, obviously. Still I love this place and I've spent many hours procrastinating on here. I do need to take a break from time to time though.

I remember that character, op…Yes, I was born in the early 90s I just don't remember her name. What is it…?

No. 56934

Same, I try to help out or be supportive when anons need it. I like that the board is generally not filled with faggotry and edgy little shits. Personally, I've met some pretty cool people through the Discord chat so I'm really glad that we have that.

Omg YES. Thank you.

No. 56955

I'm autist trash and will constantly correct people when they're wrong and offer unsolicited practical advice, because i think everything is a problem to be solved and can't tell if someone just wants to vent.
But at the same time, because I like problem solving so much, I have a huge store of tips and tricks and life hacks that I love sharing, because they made my life better and I want everyone to have them.
So lolcow is my favorite place for this because there's so many advice threads and either my input is inappropriate, and it will just be ignored and I won't embarrass my anonymous self, or it will actually help someone.
But it works both ways. My skin was awful recently in new and interesting ways, then an anon in a skincare thread posted a link about fungal acne, so within a week my skin was way better and I was able to report back to the thread what had worked for me.
>it's the circle of liiiife

Lolcow in general helps me because I recognise so much of myself in other posters, and while I don't really get lonely, I've always lacked in female company and it's so good to see people who revel in girly cute shit but also are fully aware and up front about the bullshit that comes with being female.

No. 56956

I try not to take the nitpicking too personally, because either the people being bitched about are already terrible and anons are just trying to find new ways to insult them, or they actually believe there is such a thing as a perfect body, which is just nonsense and probably internalized misogyny.
All the anons saying these things probably look like you, because I am assuming you look like a human female.

So we have vent threads, but nowhere to discuss happy feels. (Well, nothing stops anyone from venting their joy in the vent thread but I'd feel awkward doing that in between all the sad things people vent about.)
Post your latest accomplishments, good experiences, little joys here.

I'm starting to be more and more comfortable on the phone thanks to being obligated to call companies for my job. The first two day were quite stressful and I kept embarrassing myself but I'm already much more comfortable, I'm so glad because being anxious on the phone is really inconvenient on a daily basis.

This is such a sweet thread and I'm glad it exists. Sometimes this board is so negative that I just get fed up and step away, but I always end up back on lolcow, lol.

I actually went through a bad period of anxiety-induced depression, so I feel like this will be nice to other people struggling as well, as a reminder to remember what you've got.

I'm (secretly) engaged to the person I consider the love of my life, and I think our families already figured out we're going to get married sometime in the future. He's my exact vision of a 10/10 in looks, sweet without being overbearing or patronizing, honest, funny, mind-bogglingly brilliant, amazing in bed, and shares my core convictions, interests, and aesthetics. And he thinks I'm the hottest, cutest thing on the planet, and just loves to spend time with me and chat. We're comfortable and used to each other, but the passion seems to spark itself up when we feel bored and listless about life. He was my best friend before we got together and there's a whole fucking story about what we were like before this and the way it got into a mess with my ex, but irrelevant; the tl;dr is that we both came out of bad shit and are happy together.

I'm back in school after dropping out for mental health issues about a year and a half ago. I'm studying something that makes me excited and full of life, even if some of it may actually occasionally bore me to tears and I procrastinate.

My dick ex is completely out of my life and can wallow in his whining with his NEET new partner. My best friend is amazing and I love her and cheer her on, and she's going to grad school. I thought I'd lost her and was uncomfortable with her because she was mutual friends with my ex and said some hurtful things in duress, but now she's close to me and we basically have nothing to hide between us. She came around to realizing what my ex is like and she's come to like my bf more because she's realized the two of them are very alike in personality and that's exactly why we click so well. It's just so nice to have someone I can turn to and bitch with and laugh and share pics of dogs and shit, besides my bf. And not only that, but my bf and I have a mutual best/close friend that I can shoot the shit with and talk about my (obscure) interests with, and we've been close for at least a couple years now.
