Some of you might know already if you follow my Twitter - I had to replace my ethernet cable.So until that gets replaced, I will have to hold off on my next magazine post. But until then, our dear Leia made a gal meme! Here is mine~

Don't know if anyone else gets like this, but after a while I start to get overwhelmed with too many things. Especially when it comes to social media. I used to have just about everything that was huge and made sure to post as often as I could. But now with the pandemic, it feels like either nothing is being updated or there's too many users and my content gets lost in the crowd.

Saw a couple of posts like this and decided to try! As some of you know, I've at least been interested in Gyaru since 2013. But I didn't start actually participating and dressing up until 2015. It was pretty bad...and I feel embarrassed to show a lot of these. But I feel it's definitely important to show others that we all start somewhere.

In relation to my last post talking about Amekaji and Haady, I wanted to share with you my most recent haul! I'm super excited about this one because I've never really owned COCOLULU before (except for one dress which I was lucky enough to buy from Georgie!). It was always a pain to find items because a lot of sellers don't respond or someone else snatched them up. But I really lucked out this time and got a good amount of nice pieces!


A few pieces, unfortunately, did not work out and have added them to my sales page here on my blog. Be sure to check it out if you're interested! So let's get started!

Since getting back into collecting gal magazines, I've been noticing a lot more gals in Amekaji and Haady. I used to be all about Tsuyome and even a little bit of Himekaji, but COCOLULU, JSG and Blue Moon Blue have definitely been pulling me away. And I'm really happy about it.

For those that don't know about these styles or are new to gal ( welcome!), I'm going to explain a little bit about each with examples! Maybe some looks I did myself? Shall we start?

A little while back, our dear Lizzie made a post to keep record of active gal bloggers that she reads. I thought it was a great idea especially since I normally depend on Bloglovin' which has been failing a lot lately. Every time I refresh it to check who has updated, the site would crash and sometimes it wouldn't come back for days.

Caught the creative bug again. I've been working on some new pieces for my shop. I got super inspired by artsy and crafty friends and had to make some really cute things of my own. I don't draw much or anything like that but I love working with jewelry and resin.

How is everyone? Today, I wanted to look at one of the magazines I recently got. It has such a cute cover in very fuwa fuwa style. The rainbow stars and text are also a nice touch! Let's see what's inside~

Last time I announced that I got a huge gal magazine haul! Click here to read!


Many of you have requested a look inside of these. Of course, I will oblige. But not all at once though  I know winter is just about over but one of my favorite old brands had some really cute pieces. Today, I wanted to take a look at the winter previews for TRALALA of 2010!


Apparently there was a "2010 Winter" Collection and a "2010 Premium Winter" Collection. I didn't totally understand what made one of them premium except it was a book with fewer pages. If anyone knows, then please tell me in the comments!


The cover of the "2010 Winter Collection" is simple but adorable. If I had a collection like that, I would probably display them all the time too XD I'm also in love with that coat~


This top, skirt and boots combo is to die for. I used to love corset-like tops with ribbons a lot. This brand is just so fun!


Now we have all white coords with a hint of black. That sweater dress is everything! I wouldn't mind getting this one. I have one LL sweater dress from an old fukubukuro but it's super simple compared to this one. Also...those earmuffs??? Yes pls???


This style is absolutely to die for. I am not a huge fan of plaid but this one works. The shapes of this coat and that polka-dot blouse are what I miss in fashion. I love prints but sometimes the cuts need to be interesting too!


Super cute and playful looks on this spread. I really love how these teeter between almost dressy and casual. I wouldn't mind owning some of these pieces~


Coats! Coats! Coats! 
I'm so used to dressy coats from a lot of Jfashion but this is a nice surprise. Peacoats are one of my favorite styles. And that army coat looks like something Georgie would like!


This coord is absolutely adorable. I love how it's mostly black but then you have those pops of color that really stand out. Not to mention, I am in love with those OTK boots. I'm also gonna' go ahead and guess that bag is a makeup bag?


Look how much LL had!!! And remember when ameblo blogs were the must have platform? I am also curious about LL Duo. I'm going to have to look it up~


And finally the back cover. The model, Rin, is replaced with the staff listing. Otherwise, it's just the same as the front.


Now we're going to take a look at the "2010 Premium Winter" Collection! This will be a few pages shorter but it will be the same model, Rin. Let's take a look~


The cover is a bit more holiday with the gift boxes and decorations. This time we see Rin wearing the matching top to the skirt from the other booklet. I love that the skirt is so versatile that you can wear it with almost anything besides the actual matching top.


Seeing this spread makes me think that this booklet is showing the pieces in detail rather than just snapshots. You can see the coordinates properly and can really tell how everything works together. I really like those frilly shorts!


This time we see the babydoll-style dress in red. I think I like it a lot better. Having the jackets on the model also help show the length of each coat. I tend to prefer longer for when I wear skirts in winter XD


The long coat on the left is so cute and looks like it has a good length. I think the fuzzy collar might be detachable since her coat is open while it's still tied off. 


Really loving the coord on the right. It would be so perfect on a snowy day. I never owned a LL coat before so I have no idea if it would actually be warm enough. But it's still super cute!


Here you can see the cute sets and OPs that were used in most of the spreads. The top right one is really cute and perfect for the holidays. I wouldn't mind using it in a Christmas coord!


And finally the back page. This time it's just the shop list and staff. There was also no mention of the novelties.


I do love the overall look of the Premium one but I think the first one had a lot more to offer. Either way, they were more or less the same items with Rin as the model. I wouldn't have minded getting some of these had I been into gal back then. 


Did you enjoy these? What are your favorite looks? Let me know in the comments!
