ラルム Sweet Girly Artbook for Girls with Medium to Dark Skin

Hello lovelies!

If you're following me on Instagram, most likely you're familiar with my recent obsession with Larme-kei. Giving off a feminine and vintage look, Larme is the perfect fashion style for individuals whom love Japanese fashion, but don't want to look, "too out there"!

Despite it's recent boom in popularity among other jfashion adherants such as Lolitas, Mori Girls, and even some gyaru, information on where to shop and videos are VERY limited. If you're a girl of color, this is troublesome since there are no tutorials yet available to compliment our skin tone or hair texture. In today's post, I'm going to invite you to Get Ready With Me--covering makeup, hair, and much more designed with the Kawaii Black Girl in mind.

Welcome to LARME: Sweet Girly Artbook for Kawaii Black & Indian Girls

Kawaii Box Review PLUS GIVEAWAY!~

 imageeveryone, and happy Friday!~

October, the month when seasons change and the 4th anniversary of the Wonderful World of Minnie! Starting out as a creative writing project in my 2nd year of high school, I created WWM with the intentions of sharing my love of Asian beauty trends, fashion, and pop culture with the world. Now as a freshman college student I'm happy to say that for four years I've been online, and am very thankful to those of you whom follow me on  Instagram, Facebook, Youtube, and of course here. It means the world to me, and it gives me joy to read your comments and kind messages!

For awhile now I wanted to express my thanks to all of you in a special way, so what better time than the present!

Being a longtime fan of Kawaii Box company I reached out to them requesting on reviewing one of their monthly boxes, and the individual I communicated with was very friendly and was willing to not just provide a box to review, but a giveaway to one of you, so happily I accepted the offer!

So let's dig in dears!^ ^

The L Word: Innocence or Promiscuity? Lolita Fashion from an Eighteen-Year-Old's Perspective

Hello everyone, it's Minnie!~

School has been keeping me busy for the past few weeks, but one of the classes in which I enjoy the most is my English Composition and Rhetoric. The professor that I have is a very cool and open minded individual, so when coming upon the yearly "Compare and Contrast," essay, I wanted to write about something that was close to heart, and would be a potential positive contribution to the Lolita fashion community.

Although a little skeptical on using Lolita as my base, after turning in my assignment to my professor, he found it to be very informative, as well as refreshing enough to use as an example for other classes in the future!~^ ^

So in this Post, I'll present to you my Comparison & Contrast essay: the "L" Word: Innocence or Promiscuity?

Trip to Tokyo for Frills: the Travel Guide Created with Lolitas in Mind

Hello Loves^ ^

Although I've never visited Japan, in my tweens to early teens I'd often dream of one day embarking on an adventure to the Land of the Rising Sun; constantly visiting the Japan National Tourism Organization website; ordering numerous travel guides filled with colorful photos of the various destinations in which I wished to one day see with my own eyes.

In my bedroom, a map of Japan was taped onto the wall over my bed, in which I circled each city and prefecture that caught my eye. One of the many regions that intrigued me the most was Kanto--home of Tokyo Prefecture.

The very large and crowed city of Tokyo has so much to offer for fashion forward youths, especially Lolitas; so today I'll share with you some of the places I'd like to visit when/if I visit the the far East!~

Hello everyone!

It's now Monday, the beginning of the week, and this past weekend is a weekend in which I'll remember forever!

Below is my finished paper (which gained a perf score), so since it's been awhile since I last posted, I decided to share it with all of you!^^

My recent Onee GAL Style Obsession

Hello everyone, this is Minnie bringing you another fashion filled post <3
These past few weeks has been super busy for me with finals, so now that the new Semester has begun for me, that means new beginnings and a fresh slate to start out with. Now that I'm getting older, I now have some more freedom to venture into other sub-styles in which I've wanted to try for the longest time, and one that's been on my list for awhile now has been Onee Gyaru.

Unlike himekaji or hime gyaru (which I enjoy dressing usually), onee gyaru is mostly described to be a more mature fashion style and is therefore mostly worn by girls that have already graduated from high school (adult). In Onee gyaru style colors are more toned down than compared to some of the louder gyaru styles and personally I think it's perfect for those whom want to still dress gyaru, but would like to tone things down a bit! Here's some inspo in which I've collected over the past few months <3

annie-poster-japan.jpg (700×989)
Hello everyone, it's Minnie!

For many of us, fun and games will be over after tomorrow and school will start up once again. Before going back to hitting the books, my family and I took a trip to the AMC to watch the long awaited remake of the classic 1982 film, Annie!
