Etsy Discovery: MadAristocrat

Chibi, manga reader’s like myself are probably very familiar with the word.

Chibi is basically a Japanese word meaning “short” or “small child”. The meaning is not meant to be taken literal in a context of say someone being short but more of a “cute” person. Chibi style characters pop all over anime and manga and many commercials in Japan, it’s as cultural as the use of kawaii forms of advertisement.

People tend to enjoy creating fan art that depicts their favorite manga stars in Chibi form like L from Death Note or even famous movie characters like Harry Potter. This in fact is the lead in for my Etsy Discovery.

I recently came across an amazing seller creating Chibi necklace charms of the 10th and the 11th and I immediately had to purchase both for myself (and 10 for a friend).

Take a look if you’re a Doctor fan!

Mënaji Skincare for Men: Is Your Dude Sporting Powder and Concealer? Maybe He Should Be!

Is your guy friend, boyfriend, or hub sporting concealer and powder prior to heading out the door in the morning?

Curious minds, how would you feel if you walked into the washroom and saw him applying concealer and patting it in with his ring finger or if you were at your fav place to eat and he asked to be excused so he could “powder his nose”.

Yay or nay on cosmetics for me?
