Anime Review: Toradora

August 28, 2012

This summer has been incredibly busy for me but nevertheless I had time to watch an anime that was highly recommended by a friend of mine. It took some doing, since I generally try to avoid romantic slice of life shows, but he eventually got me to watch it and I found that I really enjoyed Toradora, and you should see it too!

Toradora is a show about a high school boy who looks like a juvenile delinquent, Takasu Ryuuji. His scary looks completely overshadow his gentle personality. However, this year takes a turn for the better as he arrives at school and finds that he’s not only in the same class as his one and only friend, he’s also in the same class as the girl he’s completely smitten with. Unfortunately, it’s then that he runs into another girl in his class: Aisaka Taiga, nicknamed the “Palmtop Tiger” as a play on her name and a reference to her diminutive stature.

Lookbook Blogs: Mellow Mayoness

July 17, 2012

While browsing Lookbook, I found Mellow Mayoness, a blogger on Fashion Salade.

Her style is more of a cute, pastel-like sense of fashion, but she also does occasionally do more edgy outfits. But no matter what she wears, she always manages to pull everything together nicely. You would think it would clash, but it actually comes together rather harmoniously.

I am especially in love with her obsession with socks, like these knee high black ones in this post or her lipstick ones in this one. She also has a fondness for collars, and recently I made a faux lace and pearl one to wear for the first day of school:)

One outfit I particularly love is this one. The hearts on the leggings really add another type of flair to the outfit as a whole, and the bright yellow heels adds a definite pop.

After each outfit post, she lists out where she got each of her items. It really helps in case you want to buy whatever she’s wearing that day. She also has giveaways.

I haven’t checked out the other fashion blogs on the website, but I think I’ll take a day off and browse through their feeds. In the meantime, you check out Mellow Mayoness and tell me what you think!
