Nozomi-chan's 2 months diet!!! 太田希望ちゃんの2月ダイエット!!!

Konbanwa!



Japanese diet plans are really fascinating and unique, don't you think so?



While I was browsing through my Popteen March 2011 issue a few days ago, I saw this three page on Nozomi-chan's 2 months diet and was really impressed!



It's a really easy diet plan! All she did was adjust her daily schedule!



I thought I would share those scans with you all. ^^



Scans are from Kayano-chan! For the rest of the issue, head to her blog to view them ok? (^^) This month's issue is full of spring trends, new eyemake tips (I'll try that out soon!), chocolate recipe, diet tips and more! So it's really worth it!





Featuring Kumicky on the cover page. Do you notice her ring? I think it's really pretty!





The five main rules of her diet
1. Motivation for a better and healthier lifestyle!
2. Researching for low calories food for a better body and skin
3. Massaging her legs while taking bath in a bathtub
4. Self encouragement by imagining that she has a boyfriend
5. Competing with her friends who wants to slim down too



What do I think:

I think the first and second rule are really good. As for the third rule, I don't have a bathtub at home so it doesn't apply to me. Haha. But for the fourth and fifth rule, I think as long as having a goal to achieve as to why you want to slim down is alright too.

However, in Nozomi-chan's case, I think she went for a diet after she broke up with her boyfriend that's why.





On the top left there's a column in pink with her current lifestyle schedule and the one in blue was her previous lifestyle schedule.

She used to wake up at 1200 but now she wakes up at 0500. And used to sleep at 0300 but now she sleeps at 2300! And because of her messed up lifestyle, she used to have 5 meals a day!

So to summarize a few useful tips,



-When you sit down, do not cross your legs. Instead, sit with your legs parallel and if possible, try to put a book in between your knees and hold it there. This will help slimming down your thighs and your abdomen.

Why? This is because when you sit with your legs crossed, your lymphathic system cannot flow smoothly and therefore they will collect in your legs and causes them to look thicker!



-Sharing half of your food with your friends while having snacks after school. Sharing is good and fun, so while you share you will reduce the calories taken in too.



-Take bath for an hour daily.

Soak for 30 minutes.
Then, after 10 minutes, shower your hands and legs with water. Repeat this set for 5 times.



What do I think:

Nozomi-chan's old lifestyle is just the same as mine... (- -)''' Except that I don't take that much meals.

As for the cross legged sitting position, I think her explanation is very good! I've heard many resources stating that sitting cross legged is not good. As some said it might affect your hip bone growth.

Lymphathic flow is important! It ensure waste products from our body to flow out so that we will get healthier and slimmer!





-Lymphathic massage for beautiful legs.

Nozomi-chan does this after her bath. Basically the steps are shown in the pictures already.



-Muscle training and stretches

Air bicycle for 30 rounds
Lifting up her legs for 30 times for both sides
Stretching her waist for 10 seconds each side
Lifting her hips up and down for about 20 times



What do I think:

Lymphathic massages really works! I've tried it before on my calves and they actually appeared to be smaller! My way is different from Nozomi-chan's. Perhaps I'll show you next time!

Stretches can tone up your body. Meaning less flabby thighs and arms! It also helps giving a better body figure. (^^)













Hmmm... Nozomi-chan's diet plan seems easy enough to try, don't you think so?



I think it's a good way to change your lifestyle! Health is really important, don't you think so?



I used to try to slim down with lots of methods but I'm not determined enough so diet plans always fail for me..... (; ;) But I think I want to have a better lifestyle so I might try this out!



So what do you think about Nozomi-chan's diet plan? Is it worth to try? Will you try it?



So tell me your answers below!



I hope this article helped you in looking for a new way for dieting healthily. And please correct me if I got any parts wrong as my Japanese is self-taught.



Bye bye~! \(^w~)/

Gyaru Me2 + Gyaru & Gyaruo transformation + China tourists on Tokyo Kawaii TV

Konnichiwa!



Yesterday while I was watching Tokyo Kawaii TV from NHK, I decided to take screenshots of the programme from my computer.



However, I missed out the last few parts of it because something went wrong with my computer. (; ;) But I will watch it again on this Thursday morning for a part two post.





Gaijin Gyaru spotted!





Saramari from America!






Saramari's room!

They also showed her checking her Facebook account. She has 600+ gyaru friends!

Big Gyaru Me2 webpage shown. Saramari received comments from countries such as Canada and America's gyaru stating how excited they are for the meet up and how much they want to attend the meet up.







Saramari before she lost weight!







Tourist around Shibuya! See how they are dressed in Japanese pop culture style!







Scene before this showed Saramari holding a Me2 sign so that gaijin gyaru that are coming for the meet up can spot her. She waited until 1.10pm yet no one showed up. However, she's not giving up yet.

Just then, Rox and Charlotte showed up!





For the next segment, they showed two gaijin gyaru and gyaruo fashion leader and they are going to help two person to transform into gyaru and gyaruo.

Yunkoro is invited to be a guest judge.

Jenny, the gaijin gyaru fashion leader is shown looking for passer-bys to be her model for the contest. She found a participant on her 14th try!

However, Alex only found a willing participant on his 60th try!







The guys are shopping for clothing items and then they went to get his hairstyle and make up done.

They were doing a pirate style.







The girls also went for shopping too. They were looking for a white furry napoleon jacket. After that, they went to get her hair and make up done too.





Third part of the show showed China tourist around Ginza. They bought items from famous brands such as Louis Vuitton, Burberry and more.







At Shibuya, some China girls shopped at Shibuya 109 and bought lots of stuff!

One shop in Shibuya 109 even hired a shop staff who speaks Chinese to be able to sell their products to China tourists!





That's a brief summary of this episode's part 1! I tried to remember everything they mentioned. So if I did missed out any parts, do tell me so I can add them in. (^^)



Second part will be up soon and I hope you enjoyed this post!



See you~!

How to tie Twintail Ribbon Hair

Konnichiwa!!!



It's finally Saturday! Today I will show you a tutorial on twintails ribbon hair!





To start, comb your hair thoroughly. Then split it into two parts.





Tie them up into two high ponytails. For on side of the ponytail, tie it as shown in the picture. The blue colour hair tie part is for the ribbon. (^^)





Curl the ponytails. I've used Mix curls (curling outwards then inwards).





Now for the ribbon.

I've changed the hair tie here from the thick blue one to a smaller hair tie. Curl it outwards then pin it. Do both sides. For the middle of the ribbon, I've use a ribbon clip to cover it.





For the two ponytails, I've pin them up this way to give it more volume. Also teasing the ponytails and separating the curls helps giving more volume too.





And it's done!





I think this hairstyle is great for a younger sister look. It's really cute!







Notice my eyemake today? I've used Dolly Wink No.2 that I bought yesterday!

It's really comfortable and beautiful! I've added Dolly Wink no.4 at the ends. (^^)





Outfit for this post~!



Actually, I think the ribbon would work out better if you have more hair or thicker hair than me. I have lots of hair but they are really thin. (> <)



If you have less hair or thin hair, I suggest you to skip the ribbon part and just tie the twintails and add a ribbon. (^^)



Also, I think it's better to not curl the fringe. Instead straighten it. My fringe is growing so fast so I had no choice but to curl it up or else they'll poke into my eyes. (; ;)



I hope you enjoyed the tutorial!



Off to studying for my exam now. Bye bye~

Tokyo Kawaii TV Malaysia + Ank Rouge on Fuji TV

Hello!



Yesterday I tweeted Cheesie about Tokyo Kawaii TV after I watched Xiaxue's episode part two.







So, today I'm going to tell you a little bit on the episode for Tokyo Kawaii TV Malaysia.



When I tweeted about it, they(Cheesie, Audrey and the other girls that will be appearing) were asking about how they can watch it.



What I saw was, after the episode of Xiaxue's part two, they only showed that they are going to search for Gyaru in Malaysia.



I'm sorry I didn't print screen it but I will tell you what they showed, ok?



- Picture of Cheesie and Audrey and stating that Tokyo Kawaii TV is going to Malaysia for their mission in searching Gyarus

- Lie and Maiko meet up with Cheesie and Audrey and they hugged

- Lie and Maiko ran up to Yuki and Yokoi and hugged them

- Scene where all the girls that will be appearing in the episode, the Foruchizu gyaru sa and stating an army of Gyarus.

- Lie and Maiko crying and Cheesie crying too. They all hugged each other.



That's just briefly about it!



The episode on Tokyo Kawaii TV in Malaysia is going to be up in April according to Cheesie and Audrey's tweet. I will post a reminder on my blog when the schedule is out ok? (^^)



Also, if you still don't know how to watch Tokyo Kawaii TV, check out my post on it.

Also, yesterday after tweeting to Cheesie and Audrey about that, I saw Okarie's (@Okarie1023) tweet about asking her followers to watch Fuji TV.



I switched to that channel and I saw Lil'B, Okarie and two girls who were given Gyaru transformation. They also showed Ank Rouge in Shibuya 109.
