A tacky, hilarious, over-priced brand with a throw-back Geocities/Angel
Fire-esque website. On rise already with vendors such as Urban
Outfitters and Nastygal, it is only going to get bigger and bigger cult
followings. How do I know? Well, I don't. I just have this inkling that
this will stir up enough nostalgia in millennials and beyond turning
these graphic pieces into 'OMG-gotta-have-it' pieces. I mean can you
resist graphics inspired by 90s cartoons/tv shows, junk food, drugs, and
today's hottest hashtags? I think not.
My favs [and yes I would totally pay for and rock them]:
I've been looking for the perfect mirror compact and I've found it! I want these so bad! Waaaah! Creer Beaute (Japanese company Bandai's cosmetic line) is celebrating the 20th anniversary of Sailor Moon! Limited edition cosmetics like nail polish, lip balm, and eyeliners have been on pre-order since September of last year.
Though I am a very loyal Palmer's Cocoa Butter user, I'd give it up for this Sailor Moon Crescent Moon Wand lip balm! (I actually had the original wand back in the 90s!)
To get a tattoo from the Kalinga Tribe of the Philippines has been on my 'bucket list' for years. Ignorantly, I thought all you had to do was go up to the Kalinga province and simply ask/pay for one. I couldn't be any more wrong. In this documentary tattoo expert, Lars Krutak, learns the history behind their tradition and gets to apprentice, get tattooed by, and live with, APO WHANG OD. WHAT.A.LUCKY.DUDE.
***BUT, as I have been doing my research, many people have gotten tattooed by Whang Od who have not had to go through all the rituals/learn the Kalinga way of life. Hmm....
