Japanese Magazine “Mart”


Monday November 17, 2014   

Last month I randomly picked up Mart magazine. I saw it had some mason jar specific section and bought it immediately. I was looking for something less fashion and more lifestyle and Mart is definitely that. It focuses around food, home, and fashion. A lot of tutorials, recipes, cafe recommendations, home decorating ideas, and so on. There are a few pages devoted to fashion and beauty as well.

I scanned in about 20 pages. There was an entire “Costco” section (ha!) It had some good ideas and I ended up trying grape seed oil for the first time because of it. There was also a nice section on fragrance in the home, mason jar trends, small gardens for cooking, and decorating an entryway.

    Japanese lifestyle and fashion magazines never cease to amaze me. This was certainly an interesting read! I really liked the mason jar “cafe” recipes and the bit about the granola cereal. Very cute!

      I like this magazine because it gives ideas that seem relatively easy to do within your own life. Sometimes magazines make me feel I need to change entirely too much for their ideas to be realistic.

    Thank you for sharing these scans, Jenny!

    Interesting! I like the drinks/desserts shown in the mason jars *u* I didn’t realise that’s what those jars are called.

    This is not related, but do you have any recommendations for fashionable yet warm snow boots with narrow calf? I have trouble finding one :(

  6. Ashe says:

    Ah! I love it! Jenny where do you pick up magazines? If there is somewhere in the DC area I would totally be willing to drive up there to find some!

      There’s a tiny market called Maruichi. They sell magazines. Usually the second week of the month is when they get most of them in like anecam, baile, vivi, sweet, seventeen, and maybe a few others like glow, and lee. You can also get a subscription at fujisan.com

    japanese magazines are the best! I should stop by Kinokuniya and maybe pick up a few.

    Since you have grape seed oil try using it as a makeup remover! I use it as an oil cleanser before my regular cleanser and it takes off every last trace of makeup beautifully :)

    • jenny says:

      I heard it’s great for that too. I’m hesitant to try myself though because oil always breaks me out, even those beauty oils and the oil-based removers like shu uemura’s. I have to specifically buy oil-free makeup and lotions or else it’s pimple-city on my face lol

    this kind of thing is totally my jam, haha.

    Hi Jenny!Can you recommend some good warm winter jackets for temperatures as low as -4 Fahrenheit? What about jeans/tights? How do you usually keep your legs warm? Thanks :)

    • jenny says:

      Definitely something double lined at the very least a long wool coat with winbreaking material lined inside. I mean if there are just a few days where it “feels” -4F with wind chill you can get by with a long wool coat and heattech tights worn under fleece tights. If you’re in that temp A LOT then I suggest buying something from like REI or LL Bean with temperature ratings.
