I knew the time would come when I would fall in love with a Japanese girl. Just kidding. I think?
Emi might be the cutest human being ever made. She was a super chill, relaxed girl who seems very creative and fun. Her english was much better than I thought it would be as well. Emi came and visited Growze, which was very exciting for us :D
Minx Society is launching a Minx of the Moment contest. Do you think you have what it takes to be a Minx? The definition of a Minx is elusive. But that is the very essence of a Minx; she doesn’t fit into any mold. She is enigmatic, iconic, independent, imaginative, intelligent. Nothing fazes her; she’s calm and collected. She’s mastered the art of getting whatever she wants. Minxes can be any age in any profession; they simply have one unifying quality: they stand out. Here’s your chance to shine!
2. Take a minx–inspired photo of yourself and tell us what makes you stand out. What do you do? What are your dreams? Get as creative as you want lovelies. Leave us with something as simple as a quote. It’s up to you.
3. Upload your photo to Twitter & Instagram with hashtag #minxsociety or Facebook with Minx Society tagged.
4. We’ll choose a super rad minx of the moment who we think totally belongs in the spotlight. Individual winners will get to pose for a professional photo shoot featured on our homepage as well as on all of our social media accounts and receive a $200 shop-til-you-drop gift card to any of the following minx-approved e-boutiques: Shopbop, Rad and Refined, Nasty Gal, Wasteland, & Planet Blue.
5. This happens every month, which means the Minx of the Moment contest is ongoing! Keep those entries coming & we’ll notify you if you’ve been selected.
Okay okay so maybe I over-due it sometimes but a little retail therapy has never hurt anybody. You can find me at just about every Goodwill around the Los Angeles area at least a few times a week. I am addicted to thrift store goodies. My bedroom is full of little vintage boxes and sunglasses pouring out of vintage purses. My shoes are overflowing out of my closet but that's the way I like it.
I suggest getting out of the city for the real thrift finds though. Find the smallest and strangest town near you and hit up every thrift store. The midwest is the best for vintage and antique finds!
If you're like me and refuses to step foot into a gym, heres a couple easy exercises you can do in your bedroom just a few times a week. Girls and guys both love a good butt, lets be honest. A good booty is essential in every situation and at every age. An in-shape booty is a good booty.
Exercise 1: Lunges
4x15 reps (each leg)
-Stand with your feet shoulder-width apart and hands on your hips (or holding dumbbells for the more advanced).
-Lunge forward with one leg, bending it until the thigh is parallel to the floor. The heel of the lead leg should stay on the ground. Do not shift your weight too far forward and let the knee move out past the toes. You should have two 90 degree angles with your legs.
-Repeat the exercise using the other leg. Keep your back and head as straight as possible. Do this exercise as fast as you can while always maintaining correct form.
Exercise 2: Squats with Pulse
-Stand with your feet placed slightly wider than shoulder width apart with toes pointed slightly outward. Squat down, like you are about to sit in a chair, until your thighs are parallel with the floor.
-Keep your weight on your heels, and maintain a straight spine, with head looking forward. From here, come half-way up, pause while squeezing your glutes, then sit back down with thighs parallel to the floor.
-Return to your starting position. Move quickly with good form, sitting back in heels and squeezing glutes the whole time. You may also hold a dumbbell in each hand if you would like to increase the difficulty.
Joyrich's new Los Angeles store is opening soon and we are all very excited! Last night we celebrated at the new store for the opening. The party was amazing, as always. I also heard rumors about Joyrich opening a restaurant/cafe... I will fully support Joyrich food :D :D :D
