It's February already?!? That means I'm behind on my magazine posts T.T
Here's More January 2012 issue that comes with a set of Gelato Pique pouch and tissue holder, and a 2012 calendar.
The pouch and tissue holder set comes in an understated pink, white, and lavender flower print on whisper pink background. The pouch measures 14(height) x 18.5(length) x 6(width) cm and the tissue holder measures 9.3(height) x 12.5(length) cm.
Both are made of laminated polyester with the outer side being satin-like both by appearance as well as by the touch, while the inner side is laminated. They feel thick and well made.
The big pouch is lined with a silvery lilac polyester fabric with matching zipper. All inner seams are covered with even and clean stitching, overall good craftsmanship. The tissue holder is not lined and the inner seams are not covered, but I don't really mind this so much since it's just to hold tissues.
The calendar is one of those desk-top flipping calendar. Nothing special, but nice to have.
The covergirl is the ever-popular Rinka, who has just given birth to a baby boy (I think...). If you haven't noticed, she still had the baby bump in the cover photo. Check out her official blog to see lots of baby pics ^.^
Anyway, the rest of the magazine is unfortunately meh, with shopping, shopping, and more shopping. Some times it makes me wonder how is it that people complain about the Japanese economy being in a slump for the past 2 decades, because all I see around me is crazy shopping!
