Tabeyoubi event #1


Tabeyoubi is a cooking magazine from Orange Page publishing.


Recipes are very easy to understand on this mag, they use a lot of photos, not so many explanations!
Tabeyoubi was seasonal at first, and now it became monthly. The first monthly issue came out on 20th June.
They held anniversary event in Shimokitazawa.



I and my friend joined their “stamp rally” (collect stamps from some designated shops for prize), and got their cute character Tabeyoze & Taneyone printed T-shirt!

The independent fashion magazine, Palm bis.
The pretty styles and photos are popular.
It has interviews and event information on the Web, and there is also an online shop where one can buy the clothes that are published in it (although I am not sure if they can ship overseas…).
I recommend it to those who want to always be surrounded by pretty things.
