The Aging Process (Whats my age again?)

{C2E2 afterparty tickets for Saturday are on sale tomorrow at the SugarGamers booth in Chicago!}

I usually like to blog about things or events that were made and carried out, but, I have been realizing that I am not the young hesitant young gal anymore. I am almost so close to getting my Bachelors of Fine Arts at Columbia College Chicago and trying to get some art shows going. It might be a while til I am super well known from my paintings (which would be part of my decadent dream come true!) but I am trying to get there this year. Hence why I am only popping in and out of a few gal comms at this moment.

 If I were a gal in Japan, I'd probably have a baby by now and looking a bit more normal and working somewhere normal. If I'm lucky, I might have my own clothing line like Kaoru Watanabe or my own cosmetics line like Tsubasa Masakawa. However, I am a black gyaru in America, in the Windy City, still going to college and trying to figure out what's happened, happening, and going to happen in my life.

During those times when I have to realize what I am doing seems to come natural now, but yet so foreign, , it makes me feel so much older than I remember. I bought a magazine just for the gift it had since it was so peculiar to me in a funny marketing tactic kind of way, and it turned out to be a magazine for less extravagantly dressed women who were into maybe a more "normal" lifestyle! It was looking into a magazine of what I could have chosen to look like, but I didn't.



More mag's gift.
(travel toothbrush, rinsing cup,cute drawstring pouch, and mirror).

I  guess I can be fancy when I go traveling?

Some of the coords are decent, but some do not call to me at all like how Blenda, Jelly, Ageha, and now Edge*S usually does for me now. But, they do have good tips on doing your eyebrows and also cooking tips and bento arrangements for healthy eating. 



Well, I have to get back to these projects that I think you guys might enjoy :P . Too many projects, Not enough time.

Keisha of SG also interviewed me for the sight as well about my fashion and lifestyle and my personal opinion on it.

  1. The magazine looks pretty interesting! I find the gift a tad peculiar too~ Aging within Gal is an interesting topic, I believe, because there's so many things one has to consider @__@; Regardless of such, at least there are still some Gyaru magazines that you can follow based on your age and thus, possibly graduate to a more demure style in a more graceful manner.

    I read the interview btw, grats on getting featured!

    1. Thank you Danyy! Its nice to know that people are interested in Gal culture in the Midwest especially!

      More is a nice magazine with some styles that can be so gal-ed up to fit in a bit but still stand out!

      And that is also why I *love* Japanese fashion magazines! goodies that American books don't do. A Coach or brand name freebie to get you to buy an item? Interesting and I think can be a bit more effective for sales.

      For sure! I love Blenda, Jelly, Happie Nuts and Soul Sister is awesome for me right now! I want to be a cool rocker gal even when I get a bit more older.

  2. You really make it seem really easy along with your presentation however I
    to find this topic to be actually something that I think I would by no means understand.
    It seems too complicated and very huge for me. I'm looking forward for your subsequent post, I'll try to get the
    dangle of it!
