PARU Fashion Issue

Following in the fashionable footsteps of Airiin (C-ute) and Aichan (ex-Morning Musume) comes an all inclusive and most personal reveal of all things Paruru~♥! Released mid last November this pint sized guide which measures approximately: 8.7 x 5.9 x 0.5 inches reminds us that great things do come in tiny packages ^^! NOW who wouldn’t want a first hand tutorial on the behind the scenes or rather a behind closed doors look inside Paruru’s private world all with the goal of making oneself cuter and more fashionable!!

Paruru’s very first fashion tell all book takes you from the very basics of her fashion sense giving match making an all Paruru peek into her closet where we go from plain clothing to all walks of her lifestyle. And what outfit would be complete without of COURSE an array of accessorizing including footwear, handbags, jewelry and everything in between which gives this J~culture icon her alluring edge. Also included is a vividly illustrated fashion show taking you from a day in her life to fantasy with even a bit of private time to boot! Paruru will also personally instruct you on specific looks giving rules and advice on getting just the right match when pairing particular wardrobe pieces together while the latter portion of the book presents nail grooming and beautifying tips, a short Q & A, a very adorable “Bedtime Story” segment complete with an inside look into the components which make up her very own personal space, bathroom essentials, the most fun you’ll have making breakfast with Paruru via a most cute comic styled corner, a special section of Paruru’s responses to fans’ questions, a look into Paruru’s faves when it comes to television… music… books and movies with a brief insight into each and YES a complete shopping/contact list!!… on where to find everything needed to get yourself all Paru~ru~ed UP =)!!

Still, the best portions of this book and you may also agree?… has got to firstly be, Paruru’s very detailed and complete guide to all things make~up!!! Yup cosmetics!~! Her technique and actual beauty products she uses are all laid out carefully as she goes step by step from foundation, to eye brows, to eyes, to cheeks to lips providing what has to be the ULTIMATE PARURU~♥ beautifying guide known to earth!!!!!! Now I don’t know about you, but I’m very much a Paruru~♥ obsessed adoring fan and while there are several reasons on why Paruru?? An early initial attraction towards her came when I was reading an interview of hers where Paruru revealed herself to be somewhat of an introvert. I can totally relate!!!! You see introvert types can often times be misunderstood in social rings of life going beyond family and into how one may be perceived in the areas of work-life, general bonding and without question our love lives. And for an idol it was quite the revelation as you just would never imagine such a profession being home to this side of Paruru or anyone else really for that matter whom deals daily with this side of expression and perception by others.  =) And secondly Paruru’s~♥ commentary where she defines what “cute” means to her personally, well with this being her all inclusive fashion book it really goes hand in hand ne~* ^^*. And dare I say there’s actually much much more that I haven’t even mentioned!~! And so if the sight of Paruru~♥ makes you go WAh!…. then this book is for YOU ^^.

    This was an excellent scan job! Good work! I remember this coming out a few months back and then completely had forgotten about it. Paruru is lovely, isn’t she? I think she is the type of girl who could walk into a mall anywhere in the world and people would stop and stare at her beauty. I wonder if she knows that or feels that?
    At the same time, this book is sort of a crazy thing to see with Paruru’s name on it, being that I would honestly expect Paruru to be a jeans and t-shirt kind of girl. Not so much a Mariko Shinoda kind of girl, you know? She seems like she truly is not affected by what others think of her, or doesn’t care so much, and yet this book reveals kind of the total opposite attitude from her. I love it. I think it’s great. Paruru becomes even more layered now, and I love that you like her because she’s an introverts. I love those who are more within than without. They are the most interesting people in the world, in some ways, that is.
    Anyway, definitely nice to look at and I particularly liked the photo with her holding a finger up to her lips. I wish that was more widescreen because I would totally want that for my laptop’s background. Thank you as always, and expect me to comment on ZARD soon (been spending ALL WEEK with her…and man…just……wow).

    • Hmm…being an introvert I do wonder how she deep down truly feels about the attention or the perception of herself. It’s a complicated dimension of her personality, I mean well you know =). U~n! Paruru’s fashion sense and her closet contents far exceeded my expectations!! I mean she’s shown a fashion sense far beyond the “norm” at times but here she really opens up things! Believe me she cares!! I know it’s like overstepping what one could really know and yet through reading her interviews over time I have sort of an understanding of her, we both having similar “issues” with some things in life. Haha I’m not interesting LOL =P. Paruru definitely is!! =)

      Thank you~♡! I think discovering ZARD’s music will be so rewarding, the substance of her lyrics and some of the most memorable melodies to love for a lifetime. Arigatou! Derek~kun =).

        You are waaaay interesting, to me at least. Also, I really was impressed by Paruru’s fashion sense. I just had no idea. I figured she dressed up for her job, but to see this it kind of shows off a personal side that I didn’t realize was important to her. I guess that makes sense, because she’s always going on about how she wants to end up with an ikemen. I imagine she would want to dress the part of a girl who would date an ikemen, which maybe could be that of a girl who understands fashion as much as her boyfriend.
        And yeah, you have no idea. ZARD is becoming something very important to me. I really am grateful I listened to you on this one. I think my comment I’m going to write when I am finished spending time with ZARD is going to require a whole couple of pages to explain to you lol.

        ps-You said Derek Kun… KAWAIIIIII!!!!!

        • Un, it’s a most personal revelation she makes here, really a statement and not just a fashion one. I remember we once were speaking about why I adore Paruru, well you now know a third of why =). She’s an interesting and deeply cerebral girl! Really! Not just an idol but so much more. Fashion is like a language, we each speak it in our very own way and for different reasons ne~?

          We will definitely connect with ZARD, I was a bit hesitant at first, you know when you recommend something you hold so dear it means so much and when you finally present it to a friend~♥ you’re so nervous wondering if it’ll take or not.

          A~h you’re now Derek~kun ^^.

    • Looking forward to your ZARD thoughts~♥, her lyrics are the most down to earth and they reflect so much of her personality and life as so much of us know it! A true reason why fans have so much bonded with her over the years and continue to.

        Yeah, I can totally see it. The lyrics especially, but since I’m a musician, it’s the music and her voice and how it blends so effortlessly in all the different styles that is really making me pay attention more than I thought possible. Honestly. I mean, I’ve digested a little each day so I can really savor it. I didn’t want to overdo it either, but I think I am seeing the full picture and scope of who she is by doing it this way, and, well, it’s pure joy. I couldn’t be happier 🙂

            I will save my comments. I still have more ZARD to digest and I’m taking my time with it. Sakai Izumi is really, really, one of those rare souls who has that ache in her voice that anyone in the world, I think, can connect with. But yeah, I’ll save all of this for when I’m done.
            totally happy right now. And oh, about paruru, last thing… I wonder if she speaks more of her mind through her fashion than through conversations? Because she always seems last to speak up or say what’s on her mind? Or when she does speak, she seems to not have a filter and just is brutally honest. Kind of rare for an introvert I think to be like that, yeah?
            Her fashion sense is adorable though, no question!

            • Hmmm…it’s like an endearing means of addressing =)…. You become “kun” when someone is familiar and friendly with you… comfortable ^^.

              “You and me (and…)” hint~hint~* =D. It’s a special one and there’s even a live performance albeit it’s ugh! abbreviated XD…. you just know that your #1 will be the performance which is abbreviated (*≧∀≦)☆★ ↓!。

              Pent up emotions and stuff can really come out in different ways, you make an awesome observation!! Personally high school was rough, I mean I missed out on prom and it was most likely my own doing. Like I never knew how to read guys and how they felt or what they wanted =/. Years later some of my girlfriends confessed that some guys used to think I was angry …OMG yes angry =P. In any case Paruru’s fashion sense rocks! And her make-up tutorial tell all is pretty awesome in itself! That coming from a girl whom doesn’t fancy make-up on many days=).

                personally, I prefer a girl who doesn’t wear makeup. I prefer natural. I think it’s way sexier. Don’t get me wrong, a lot of girls that wear makeup can wear it really well and I think it’s great that they do, but if I were dating a girl, I would hope they would just feel comfortable enough around me to not feel the need to wear makeup. Or if they wore it, they wore it for fun or to go out and maybe have a good time. I appreciate it all, I guess. I am sure you probably don’t need any makeup though ;).
                As for the revelation about your past… really? People thought you were angry? And you had a rough time in high school? Reading guys is probably as hard as it is for guys to read girls, in the sense that it’s all about connection and taking the initiative, right? But I think about how Paruru might be with a guy who would be totally confused by her somewhat salty demeanor, and yet that is just her way of keeping the emotions bottled up and it’s not meant to be taken personal. That’s hard though, as a guy, to deal with. But if a guy dating Paruru is smart, he might notice her fashion choices when they go out speaks volumes about what she is feeling inside on those days she spends with her lover. And there’s probably a lot of other ways to express those emotions without just spewing forth tons of words that will ultimately end up hurting somebody she cares about.
                So would that be your story too, at least in high school? Just curious. I can see though just with this little bit you shared about missing prom (I would’ve taken you had I known you!) and not reading guys well that you might have expressed yourself much differently than other girls your age, yeah? Like maybe with your appreciation for music or movies or watching the Cavs lol. Sorry, had to put that in there.
                I really, really wish I knew more about you MB. I think you have quite the story to tell, and I hope to hear it someday :).
                Oh, and the kun reference is awesome and I’m well aware of what it means and why you used it. I just think it’s really kawai! I hope I can earn it from you always.

                • Hiya Derek-kun!

                  Personally make up’s been a mood thing for me, like in expressing a look if that makes any sense. Picking a wardrobe means much more time me so makeup’s going to aways be second fiddle. High school boys I had a difficult time understanding, in hindsight I what I took as avoidance or disinterest I later found out through friends was rather shyness or dare I say fear! =O I mean I’m the least intimidating person and a just over 5 feet how could that be? In all seriousness I wish guys back then could have been less “afraid” of approaching me, I mean I don’t bite =P. And it didn’t help that I’ve been introverted afraid if I could go back and do it all over perhaps I’d even have an out of body experience and show an interest with body language, flirt gently I guess. Wouldn’t someone want to be with a person they’re attracted to? Why the “fear” I don’t get high school boys. Paruru’s social dynamic is so much more complicated for this personality type, I can’t imagine how she copes with a lot of it inside and really for once the no dating rule may be a silver lining I wonder? Boy thinks to himself…. “There’s that girl I want to know but she aways has her face in a book and she looks upset?” Haha yeah it may have further not helped that I was a total nerd too back then….. I’ve now happily graduated to dork!! =D

                  Oh and I think that now that you had some time going through ZARD’s songs, it’s now okay to share my personal highly recommended songs list!:

                  My favorite ZARD songs would include (in no particular order):

      I always went for the girls with their faces buried in the books, or the unapproachable ones. I liked the fact that they seemed so interested in other worlds besides the one that we all live in. I usually spend my time in an imaginary place, wishing and dreaming of places and things I don’t have in my life. I mean, I am grateful for what I have now, but it’s just that when I see a group like AKB performing on a massive stage in front of thousands of people, I want to know what that feels like. I did know what that felt like, for a time, so maybe I should say I want to know what that feels like AGAIN, and this time, on a grander scale.
      But seeing somebody like you probably would’ve made me want to talk to you about whatever it was that kept you so occupied mentally. And I’m sure that makeup or no makeup, you made the heads turn of every boy near you lol.

      ZARD is….wow. It’s been an experience. More on that very soon!

      • UGh! I was perhaps too unapproachable xD… and in hindsight to think I’d spent all of those hours in front of my mirror trying to look cute and it somehow backfired on me…(u_u*). Oh but having those dreams~* and visions are what make us tick so special and it reflects in your outgoing personality for sure and with dreams comes a means to make things happen in life, I truly believe that! Yep it’s always in a parallel world, you should have been born in Hawaii LOL =P. I could have taught you the ways of being a certified nerd and you could have opened up my introverted world ^^. Funny you know I can never really tell what guys are thinking whenever there’s prolonged eye contact… you are a mysterious breed~♥ =D. You are much too sweet~♡ o(*´∀`)o゛!!

        I hope~* the list I made above is helpful ^^.

          As for that list, yes, very helpful indeed. ZARD really was incredible these past few weeks that I took my time to listen to her, as you wanted me too. I like some of the songs on your list more than others, and tonight I think I’m finally going to send you my breakdown of my thoughts. It will be on the ZARD comment page and it’s going to be epic, so brace yourself lol. I really, really can’t thank you enough for opening up my world to this… you were 100% right… there is SO much more to Japanese music and artists than what I have limited myself too!
