Hello Tokyo - The First Daiso in the Midwest

Saturday, September 7, 2019

Hello everyone,

I'm so excited to introduce the FIRST Daiso in the Midwest, Hello Tokyo!

Hello Tokyo, located in Chicagoland, has the largest selection of kawaii Japanese Daiso products in the Midwest with most items only being $2! I was able to get a first look before their grand opening to check out the store and speak to the owner Jin on the creation of Hello Tokyo and its future. 

Ateez - Are you Team Illusion or Team Wave?

Wednesday, May 29, 2019

Monster rookie Ateez have chosen to grace us again with their grandness and allow us Atiny's to choose their new single!

How awesome is that huh?

They showcased 2 singles: a hop hop/pop jam titled Illusion and an energetic summer anthem titled Wave.

I teeter totter between the two but in the end I gave the majority of my votes to Illusion. But both tracks are amazing! Though I did hear that KQ Entertainment might actually choose a surprise 3rd single (that might be titled Euphoria.) :D

Cast your vote now! It ends soon!

Miyavi "No Sleep Till Tokyo" North America Tour

Saturday, May 4, 2019

I adore Miyavi. No, more than adore...Love...stan...stan hard. For those that know me, they know I am hardcore Miyavi. I've seen him every year since 2017 (but been a fan since 2013) and got to meet him twice. Some of you all might be thinking, well dang April, what happened to Rain? Well, he's the foundation of everything and I will always love him but music wise, he's kind of paused on creating modern, enjoyable music. Miyavi on the other hand continually reinvents himself all while looking like Zaddy! (I have 4 main biases but Miyavi is the head honcho bias. Try and keep up folks!)

Let me stap.

Taemin Top 5 Fashion Looks

When thinking about Kpop Fashion and the boundaries it pushes, no one comes to mind more that Lee Taemin. If it's from his bubbly promotions with SHINee or his myraid noir inspired solo ventures, Taemin continually pushes what we know as STYLE. So in appreciation of his sharp and dynamic style I will share my Top 5 Favorite looks that Taemin has graced us with over the last couple of years. Let me know if you agree with the list in the comments!

BTS Mentioned on Wendy Williams

Friday, April 19, 2019

I'm a huge fan of Wendy Williams!
Though I'm only able to watch on YouTube because I work during the day, I faithfully wait with bated breath for the newest upload. So to finally hear a Kpop group mentioned on her show was right up my ally. For some time I've anticipated her casually mentioning something pertaining to Kpop but to no avail. And now finally, Wendy has shared her thoughts about BTS!

The guys showed up during the Hot 5 segment in which a celebrity news critic shares what's currently trending in pop culture.

NCT 127 Top 4 Comeback Looks

Thursday, April 18, 2019

NCT 127 is one of my absolute favorite boy groups right now. They give their all with every performance and each comeback from them gets bigger and better. They just recently announced their newest comeback this month with the title "We are Superhumans."

Wow, does this mean we're going to get some extraordinary material from them? I hope so. 

So in celebration of their comeback and forthcoming tour, The Neo City: The Origin World Tour (which I'll be attending in Chicago) I wanted to share my top 4 favorite looks from the group. It's so hard because they slay when they're on or off the stage but I will try and manage to pick a few out. :)
