I’ve been so busy that I didn’t even realize that this blog has reached over 50,000 hits since its first post! : ) I’m so glad that it’s become as successful as it has – I couldn’t have done it without you guys. <3 I actually plan to delete some of my older posts. Not only are my photo-taking skills much superior now, but some of those entries are just embarrassing. :P Anyway, I just have a small update for you guys right now. I’ll be a little busy for the next week, too, since I have three papers to write! >.<;
First of all, I want to tell you guys how incredible the Aussie Moist Collection is. A few weeks ago, I told you all about my experience with their 3 Minute Miracle. Well, for the past two weeks I’ve been using the Aussie Moist Shampoo and Aussie Moist Conditioner (mostly because I hate 2-in-1 formulas). I’ve never seen my hair so hydrated before! The really large 1-liter bottles go for about $6 at your local drugstore, which is actually pretty cheap for its size. Personally, I don’t think the shampoo is anything special, but the conditioner is great. It’s super creamy, smells wonderful, and makes your hair feel AMAZING if you have dry ends. I would definitely recommend! :D
Secondly, I’m sure I’ve told you guys that I love reading Japanese fashion magazines. Unfortunately, they aren’t sold anywhere near my college campus. Thus, I’ve relied on LiveJournal communities like JMagazineScans to get my monthly fix. :P Although I’ve been reading ViVi for a couple months now, it’s been getting a little dry with the past couple of issues. I just discovered Ageha the other day, though!
The magazine targets young women aged 20-24 who are into the gyaru fashion style. And although I could never consider myself one or even attempt the style, I’m completely in love with the look. The models in Ageha are so beautiful! And although the style in ViVi is a little bit more mature, the fashion/hair/makeup pages in Ageha are much more colorful and informative. Click the scans below to enlarge! : )
The only thing I dislike about this magazine are their disgusting weight-loss advertisements. There’s such a pressure in Asia to have already stick-thin women become even skinner. It’s pretty sick. =/ Note that the ad claims that the woman on the right is only 38.9 kg, which is equal to about 85.7 lbs.
In other news, I have a new blog photo! : ) I love that my hair is getting longer. I’m not sure whether I want to lighten it again this weekend or over Spring Break. I usually re-color it every six or seven weeks, but lately my roots seem like they’re growing.. faster? Haha.
Lastly, I wanted to let you all know that my dear friend Kristiana has just started a blog! :D I’m so excited for her upcoming posts. She’s incredibly stylish, and I’m sure she has a lot to offer. You can find her blog here. I’ve also posted a link to it on my sidebar for future reference. : ) Until next time!
