Honey Mi Honey 10th Anniversary book - 2 way Boston bag review

Hi everyone! It's been a while since I updated this blog but here I am again!! ^^ Today I'd like to review this 2-way Boston bag I got from the "Honey Mi Honey" 10th Anniversary book. Honey Mi Honey has been a Japanese brand that I always had my eyes on, as they appeared many times in Larme magazines. I really love the style designs and desperately wanting to go to its cafe in Tokyo someday ^^

When I first saw a photo of this bag, I fell in love with its simple and convenient design and thought it would be a good travel bag. It came in a box as shown on the picture above, along with a Honey Mi Honey catalog for some of the newest items in store (about 10 pages). 

Here's a picture with the catalog ^^
(NB: I mainly wanted to do a quick review of the Boston bag, so there won't be any scan of the catalog)

The bag itself is in black color, made in fabric material and came in a decent size of 50 x 34 x 19cm. The straps (shoulder strap is adjustable) came in black color and white writing of the brand name. Here's a front view of the bag, and there was a small zip pocket in the front (which will be explained later in this post).

Here's a back view of the bag, in the middle we have the middle component which allows it to be attached to a luggage handle (will show later in this post).

Here's what it looked like inside, and it came in double zippers. There were no additional compartments inside the bag, but it has a pretty good amount of room.

On the back of the packaging, there were different points of the bag itself and instructions on how to fold the bag into a small pouch.

So we open up the small zip pocket at the front of the bag first...and here it goes LOL.

The instructions are quite easy to follow, and just keep in mind the pocket itself is reversible in the last few steps. Once you folded everything in, you just simply zip it up.

TA-DA!!! It turned out to be pretty much the size of a cosmetic pouch. I find this very useful and convenient as it would save so much space if you needed. 

Lastly, you can attach this bag to the handle of your luggage as well...which ofcourse saves you from carrying it on its own :D

I absolutely fell in love with this bag and I think it's a pretty cool idea for Honey Mi Honey's 10th Anniversary release. The only thing I have to see now is the durability of this the material seems a little thinner than usual bags, it's hard to say how it would turn out after travelling. I do however, only intend to use this as carry-on bag so it won't go through much rough surface :) Shall see how it goes...Though overall I'm still very happy about this bag, and it would be a stylish everyday bag too :)

Thanks for reading guys! If you are interested in this then you can get your own in the link down below too ^^

Rose Marie Seoir Girl's Rule book selective scans

Hello everyone! Recently I've purchased this "Rose Marie Seoir'' girl's rule book, and I thought I'd share a small selection of scans with you guys for inspiration!

If you are interested, please do support the original book by purchasing it HERE.

This book came with a black satin bag as a gift, and there were gold prints of a cat, heels and ribbon logo on it. Being honest here, the bag was the main reason I've ordered this book LOL. I have been absolutely in love with black colour lately and I thought I'd add some more black bags in the wardrobe ^^

The book itself is not really thick, but had enough content to keep me interested. I really love looking at lists these days, ie. fashion tips, list of holy grail items, travel destinations etc. This one here had 13 topics that covered pretty much everything a girl is interested in, ie. fashion, beauty, bath goods, bags, accessories, shoes, nails, room decoration etc. 

The first couple of pages had different outfits, and I was drawn into this one here in particular :D 

Rule number 3 started here...where I saw a page depicting some of the items in a girl's bag. I actually really loved that handkerchief!! >0<

I thought I'd share this page which covered accessories, nails and shoes. These 3 sections introduced some really pretty items and designs from a wide range of brands...oh how I wish I could have them all LOL.

Here's a random page with some beautiful dresses, I think I quite liked number 5.

Like all styling books, there's got to be a section based on beauty products. Sometimes I get really tempted to try out new products just by reading about I the only one here? Haha.

Here are some bath goods even though I normally don't pay too much attention on these...but I have been wanting to try Jill Stuart's bath goods for agessss, now looking at this just reminded me to get them somehow...someday LOL. 

Here's one of my favourite page out of this book, which had a selection of little black dresses! I think I actually liked all of them >0<

Towards the end of the book, I found a whole section based on travel OMG. I love travelling and reading about other people's travel experiences, and I thought it was really nice that they included this section in the book. There were multiple photos for each country listed here, and I really enjoyed reading through them one by one.

The last page had a box attached with the gift inside it. From here you can see that the bag could actually be turned inside out, which revealed another pattern of bears, cherries and multiple words of "lolita". The bag itself is quite big so probably would be good for shopping? It can be tightenedd with the big ribbon on the front of the bag, which makes it pretty easy to access.

菅野結以 Yui Kanno style book "Yuitopia" selective scans

Hi everyone! Maybe some of you already knew, Yui Kanno has been one of my all-time favourite Japanese model. I remember when I first saw her as a Popteen model and I thought, "WOW She's gorgeous!!!"

Today I have selective scans from her style book "Yuitopia" to share with you guys, and I must say this was a really great purchase to allow her fans to get to know her on a more personal level :)

If you like these scans and is interested in purchasing your own copy, please support the original book by clicking HERE.

One thing I'd always love about Yui is her perfect skin! She looks fantastic on the cover :D

The content of this style book is actually quite broad, and it does not solely base on fashion, makeup and hairstyle but also other aspects such as movies, music and books that she likes.

If you can read Japanese, then you can also check out the Q&A section :)

Here are some Spring photos of Yui, I love how they played with the exposure and setting here.

Actually most of the photoshoots inside this book are just as beautiful as these, it almost looks like a fairytale realm.

They have introduced some of the products that Yui uses for her makeup looks.

Here are the steps of a simple and natural look.

She also had a gothic makeup which I thought was absolutely amazing!!

Some of her holy grail makeup products were also introduced here.

Actually I don't think I've used any of those products here but I'm quite interested in no.4.

Some of the hair accessories that she uses which were all beautiful! Can you see the ones from Liz Lisa? Personally I love the fur accessories, they look really cute :)

The next section introduces a lot of different hairstyles, they are actually pretty simple ones.

I would love to try this hairstyle someday ^^

There's something really fascinating about wavy hair and big bow accessories, it's so girly and adorable ^^

LOL interested in dessert? Yui even talked about some of her favourite ice cream here!

Yui has shown her morning and night routine here for those who are interested in skincare.

There is also a Nail art section which featured some of the nail designs she had, and some of them were really pretty.

There was a bigger section based on fashion and styling, and this is definitely my favourite section.

She totally rocked the red one piece x black jacket look!! I think the cool part about Yui's style is that she knew exactly how to balance the outfit perfectly (and the fact she looks good with everything and anything LOL). I absolutely love everything here on this page!!

These are probably my favourite pages out of the whole book as we get a peek at some of the fashion items in Yui's closet.

I feel there was a really good balance there with sweetness and coolness. Some of her clothes are actually quite mature with a hint of sexiness :)

I quite like these styles too, especially the first one inwhich she looked like an angel haha.

For those of you who may not know, she actually created this fashion brand called "Crayme". Personally I haven't bought anything from Crayme yet, but I am indeed very interested in the style. The pricing is about mid-high range, and I find their style is quite close to Larme-kei.

They also shown some of the movies, books, and music that Yui likes/recommends. Oh and by the way, doesn't she look SO GOOD HERE???? So wild and full of mischief ;)

I also love this photoshoot! Yui looks just as gorgeous with punk style!

They had a summary of the collaborations that Yui has done in the past with different brands. To this date I still regret not getting some of the Yui Kanno x Liz Lisa collaboration items LOL.

Yesssss! For those of you who have known her for awhile, she was actually a Popteen model. This typical Gal photo of her is really beautiful...ahhh the memories haha I still remember her with heavy eyeliners and dolly fake eyelashes in the early years.

Nowadays she is a model in Larme magazine, and I find her style has matured quite abit from Popteen days.

Here are some of the Larme issues which featured her, and I think I love the dark punk look on her the best, but also the casual looks.

If you are a fan of Yui Kanno, I'd highly recommend this book as it really shown a wide range of topics related to her. She is such a beautiful and hard working individual which I knew I would forever adore her. I'm glad I got this book and was able to share it with all of you, hope you guys enjoyed reading!
