Vivi magazine (August, Malaysian edition)

*Click pics to enlarge* 

Q&As from the previous Vivi post*click*:

That's so great you have in english! Do they make any other Gal mags in English? Like Popteen or Ranzuki, or Ageha?
In Malaysia, we only have Ray and Vivi mags in English, at the moment. Let's hope they come up with more!

Is the content the same as the japan edition?
I think the content is pretty similar, but the Malaysian edition is slightly thinner and is incorporated with bits and bobs of local information (eg. KL street style, hair tips etc).

Vivi in English? Wow, I need to get my hands on one. How is the translation inside? Accurate?
Pretty accurate! Vivi has way more pics than words, anyway, and many of the descriptions are short sentences like, "Wear oversized tee over a bodycon skirt", so they can't get that wrong and even if they do, it's still understandable.


Many of you have expressed interest in getting your hands on a copy and some have even asked if I could do a Custom Purchase (CP) for you. I thought about this long and hard and have decided to do swaps instead of CP. I know how exciting it feels like to actually be able to read and understand the magazines and I really want to share this with you, especially the many of you whom have become my blogger friends.

I will admit I was a little hesitant because I am not sure how committed I can be and I don't want this to turn into one big mess! I chose to do swaps instead because doing a CP would require you to send me payment first (via Paypal) before I send the magazine out. And I understand that some people might be a bit iffy about that (I would be, too), but then again, since I'm not gaining anything and merely doing it as a favour, I didn't want to risk getting non-paying "customers" and losing not only money, but valuable time. Hopefully, a swap would be a little bit more fair on both sides.

To keep things in control, I'll only accept 3 swaps for the month of September. If you're interested, drop me an email at everydayoutfits11 [@] gmail [dot] com. I'll then get in touch and we'll proceed from there.

As of now, I don't yet know what I want to swap for because different countries offer different things. I'm pretty flexible, though, and may just want some candy from your country :)

I guess I had better post some outfit pics before I start getting slippers thrown at me.

I'm sorry the pics are grainy, but I really don't have much time for outfit shots these days. I'm doing the whole take-your-pic-in-the-mirror-with-your-iphone thing. Taking pics of products is so much easier because I can just do that in my PJs.

Anyhow, I just wanted to share with you some of my work outfits. I work in a corporate setting, but luckily, we are not forced to only wear smart suits every day.

Which outfit did you like best?

Now I know that many of you are Hello Kitty fans, mascara fans or even Hello Kitty mascara fans. Some of you may have heard that Maybelline has released a limited edition Hello Kitty Hyper Curl Volum' Express mascara. This isn't available in many countries, but we're lucky to have it here in Malaysia. Yay!

So I was feeling generous and decided to do a giveaway!

I will be giving away TWO of these babies, so I hope I'll make 2 ladies very happy!!

Just to be clear, this is in no way a sponsored post and I purchased the mascaras with my own money.

A drawing

[Pic credit: Ice Pandora]

Mei @ Ice Pandora

Mei, you already know that I absolutely love your photography and artwork. So to be drawn is an absolute honour. The graphic is beautiful and you even captured the little things like the bird cage necklace I wore, the rolled up sleeves and the knot on the shirt.
You've made my day and "happy" doesn't even begin to describe how I feel right now. I've had a rough week and your kind and generous gesture has really touched me. It brought a huge smile to my face. Thank you, Mei. Sincerely.

The drawing was inspired by this outfit.

Vivi magazine (June, Malaysian edition)

I know I am super late, but I still wanted to share with you the first Malaysian edition of the popular Japanese fashion magazine, Vivi. The fact that it's in English makes this highly coveted, yes?

I am trying to think of  a way to share these monthly issues with you, but I am stumped as to how to do that. You see, I don't have a scanner. The best I can do is snap some pics using my humble camera and do a sort of monthly sneak-peek. Any ideas?
