Sorry I haven't been updating in the recent week. I bought some new furniture for my room, a 5 closet drawer table and a bookcase and I have been super busy putting the two furniture together and as well as packing and organizing some stuff in my room. I'm actually taking a short break right now to update my blog with a post on some Japanese fashion magazines and TV magazines that I bought when I was in Tokyo during my Japan trip last October in 2014. One of the things I loved doing while I was in Tokyo was going into the convenience stores and just looking at all the magazines on the magazines rack. I don't know why, but it brings me so much pleasure and joy whenever I do so~ Ｏ(≧▽≦)Ｏ
I bought 4 Japanese fashion magazines when I was in Tokyo. Ray, JJ, Sweet and ViVi which are my top 4 favourite magazines for Japanese fashion.
I bought the Sweet magazine because Rola was on the cover and because I wanted the free super adorable Snoopy tote bag that was included. It's a Snoopy x Cher collaboration tote bag. You can reverse the tote bag on different sides for a new look! Isn't that sooo cool? I LOVED it and I was even wearing it out to carry stuff when I was in Tokyo. XD
I also bought ViVi because it is my #1 most favourite Japanese fashion magazine and because Rola is on the cover again. But actually, the real reason why I bought ViVi was because I know that Yamapi is featured in it every month for his monthly column in the magazine, lol. =P The ViVi magazine also came with a free Attack on Titan x BEAMS collaboration tote bag. I didn't know what Attack on Titan was at that time but I just knew it was quite popular as I recall seeing it everywhere I go in Tokyo. It's a two sided bag with one side being Attack on Titan and the other side with BEAMS written on it. BEAMS is actually a popular Japanese fashion brand in Japan which I quite like their clothing and style. This tote bag is so handy and fashionable. I wore it out a few times when I was in Tokyo. I love how in Japan tote bags can be worn as a fashionable item to accessorize your outfits with. Here's an example of how you can wear this cute tote bag in 3 different ways shown in the ViVi magazine.
Isn't it soooo cool? I'm loving tote bags more and more now. I'll show some pictures of how I style the two tote bags I got in an outfit post later so stay tuned! =)
And then aside from fashion magazines, I also bought some TV magazines from the Kinokuniya Bookstore in the east side of Shinjuku nearby the station on my last day in Tokyo. I swear, I had no intention of buying magazines with Yamapi on the cover that he was in when I was in Tokyo, it wasn't part of my plan. =P I actually went to the bookstore to buy actual Japanese books there but I couldn't find them. =( And then I was leaded to a section full of magazines with Yamapi on the cover because I saw a poster of him hanging on the wall, lol. Nice advertising tatic Japan! XD So I went over to that section and there was over 15+ magazines with Yamapi on the cover!!! (O_O") I have never seen an idol on soooooo many covers of magazines before in my life. Talk about being popular huh?! LOL. I wish I had taken a picture of the stack of magazines he was in but I had no more memory space on my phone and I got lazy to go through my 1000+ pictures to delete some pictures so that I could take a picture of the stacks of magazines he was in, lol. I wanted to almost buy ALL the magazines he was in but I couldn't because I wouldn't have luggage space to bring them all back to Canada with me. So in the end I settled with just 4 magazines instead. I was literally standing in front of the stack of magazines for like almost an hour picking out which magazines to buy, lol. I tried to pick ones that come with pinup posters and ones that feature other Japanese idols that I like in them too so it wouldn't be like I was just buying them for Yamapi. XD
I love it when Yamapi is dressed in a simple denim jacket/dress shirt and a t-shirt. He looks best in just casual wear. (ღ˘⌣˘ღ)
And I also like him in simple white knit wear too. So simple and pretty! (•‾⌣‾•)و ̑̑♡
