Gyaru Manifesto Meme

So today when I browsing around the blog-o-sphere I passed through Sara Mari's page Moments like Diamonds and she had this excellent post about her Gyaru likes/dislikes/misc. While I am definitely not gyaru by any stretch of the imagination I do love it! So consider this version of the Gyaru Manifesto Meme a very basic newbie friendly version.
