Soup and Sprouts and Shampoo
This weekend I made my Grandmother’s vegetable soup recipe. At first I thought I got it a bit wrong, but then after eating a bowl cold I realized it tasted exact! I had just rarely ever eaten it hot and instead always ate it gazpacho style as a kid. I also never had unlimited quantities of the soup to myself. I’ve lost count how many times I’ve eaten it since Saturday.
I bought a crap-load of shampoo this weekend too. If the local Japanese market carries a new hair care line there’s a 100% chance I’m going to buy it without considering how often a single person can actually wash their hair in their lifetime. Added ISM Hair care and Umi No Uruoiso to my collection. I haven’t opened them yet though but will pick one tonight because my current shampoo & conditioner went empty.
I’m actually most interested in the ocean themed line. It uses various seaweed extracts and just sounds all around summer-mermaid-themed.
I happened to catch that a magazine I used to subscribe to (Mer) recently released a special edition version for women around 30 called “Mer+” or Mer Plus.
I was subscribed to Mer for a few years and unsubscribed last summer. It was originally called “Vintage Mix Girls” [Furugi Mix Girls] until they made the change in February ’13 to Mer.
I thought I’d post some of the pages from Mer+ that were put out as teasers. I’ll also post a few from the regular issues of Mer. Like Baila, Mer has a lot of “baby bangs” hair styles but the clothing is much more casual with emphasis on “adult cute” and girly clothing.
