And so Non-no decided to make myContinue reading “Reason number 2 why Non-no is my favorite Japanese magazine of all time —”

My current work is quite strict with having people dress like they are a part of the big corporate herd, butContinue reading “New office wardrobe ideas from NYLON Japan Magazine”

MatsuJun in the October issue of Potato Magazine

There are days when you feel like nothing in going right. You have three (ad) copies due for lay out and presentation… You must schedule three new PR companies for pitching… …and oh, you must see through three pending projects until completion.

Little disappointments and big surprises

I have an annoying habit which I have yet to get rid off. I easily get heartbroken over silly, little things and sometimes, this is due to setting my expectations too high. When I was still dating the Hubby, I asked him not to make promises lightly or set dates just like that: the reason,Continue reading “Little disappointments and big surprises”

Guess what came in the mail today…

I don’t care if the magazine has only allocated a fraction of its pages to Ikuta Toma. What’s more important is that I have–in my hands–a copy featuring this sinful, sinful man-child. This particular piece cost me about Y700, a bit higher than its shelf price in Japan. But I don’t care–someone was KIND enoughContinue reading “Guess what came in the mail today…”
