Magazine: happieNUTS 02 2013 issue X GYDA

Welcome to a new week and THE LAST DAY OF THE YEAR [it is in Japan anyway, time difference might put u on the 2nd last day of the year]
I wish i had a more exciting post lined up but i am neck deep in errands/chores/osechi cooking today so you’re going to have to read some magazine scans instead XD

Before we begin, in my previous magazine posts, many of you have asked if i would post larger scans, honestly speaking i try not to post overly large scans as i am not sure if it poses any copyright issues to the magazine. However i have tried my best to zoom in where possible and i think in general the pics are fairly visible [you probably cant read the fine print but i am sure u can see most of the product or name of product.] i hope you can understand πŸ˜€

All about the lucky bags this new year!!

A huge feature on drugstore/100yen makeup aka low priced makeup*
When they say low priced, they are referring to makeup under 1000yen or thereabouts [USD$14~]

Low priced eyeshadow

Low priced lipgloss

Low priced lipstick

Low priced eyeliner

Hairstyles [long, medium and short]

How to conceal those eyebags!

The present that came with this month’s issue is a leather bag from GYDA

The material is very nice and sturdy. Does not feel cheap.

However i cannot say the same for workmanship XD i discovered my tote has a side which was not sewn up [easily fixed by myself]

How it looks on the model [for size comparison]

The present next month is a tote bag from LIPSERVICE.

I just want to take this opportunity to thank everyone for reading this blog.
Everyday i amazed by how people are actually reading what i have to say and are still vaguely interested after reading XD
Its amazing to know there are people out there who like the same things as i do or are keen to learn about what i do day to day.
Though i know many of you choose to lurk and not comment [shy? i wont bite..much XD], i want to know that i am still grateful for your readership!
Hope you will continue to stick with me in the new year!
HAPPY NEW YEAR to you , your family and all your loved ones!!!
XOXO Yumeko

    Have a great New Year!
    I think you’re very sensible about not posting large scans of the magazines – too much probably is a copyright issue.

    Your blog is really interesting; I often discover new things about Tokyo even though I live here – so much is going on! Thanks for continuing to post.

    • Bittenbefore says:

      thanks for being understanding about it!
      there are some sites that will post full scans but i dont really think that is the direction i want my blog to go in πŸ˜€
      there is always so much going on in tokyo indeed πŸ˜€
