Culumi Nakada "Nowhere" Book Preview

Culumi Nakada is a harajuku model who also models for Zipper magazine and other ones. What I love most about Culumi is that she seems so down to earth and nice (look up some videos of her on Youtube). Her style is mixture of punk, vintage, rock and roll, tom boy, and girly however she has made that her signature style. In her first book "Nowhere" she shows you some of her favorite clothing items, outfits, how to do her hair and makeup, and a glimpse into her personal life.

Down below I posted a few pages in case you were interested to see what the book is like. I would recommend it if you are into Japanese street fashion.

This is my favorite picture in the book.
Ayumi Seto is also in the book! She looks so cute with pink hair!
Are you a Culumi Nakada fan?

Review: Beach Babe Texturizing Shampoo ♥ Not Your Mother's

All the stores have been releasing all these new summer beauty products and I am in awe! As you guys know I love beach waves so when I saw that there was a shampoo to enhance those lovely summer locks I knew I had to get it! I've been using this shampoo for the past few weeks and here's what I think...

What it claims to do:
"We know you want sexy, windswept hair - and you can't get enough of your NYM addiction (*wink) - but you're still craving that extra something? Then use Beach Babe Texturizing Shampoo as the perfect base to create those tousled waves with ease. Hang loose, because this salon formula, infused with sea kelp and coconut oil, will cleanse your hair without harsh sulfates and leaves your hair feeling (and smelling!) like you just got to the shore!"

Pros:
- Enhances curls
- Sulfate free
- Smells great
- Affordable

Cons:
- Doesn't really give a beach wave look

My experience:
First off let me say that I have naturally curl hair so this shampoo may give different results to those who do not have natural curls. This shampoo has a creamy gel texture and latters nice. When my hair is in it's natural state I do notice a few more define curls (more than usual). I follow up by using the NYM Beach Babe Texturizing Sea Salt Spray.

Would I recommend this?
I mean I liked this shampoo but I wouldn't say it's amazing or anything. I probably wouldn't repurchase this product.
