Have you ever been envious of someone because that person is always out traveling and enjoying life? Do you sometimes wish you could trade places with that girl who constantly blogs about her collection of clothes, shoes and make-up? Can you not help but compare yourself to your former classmates, whom you only get to interact with on Facebook, who now have their own condos, brand-new cars and they even attend the hottest events?
Well, surprise surprise! You’re not alone, my dear. It’s but human nature to think that our mundane existence sucks more hairy balls than other people’s colorful lives. And with the onset of blogs and social media, it just became much easier to brag about EVERYTHING and feel insecure about ANYTHING.
C’mon. We all know pink swarovski WILL take the blues away.
I read about this on Cracked.com (my favorite non-social media website) a few months back. It perfectly explained the psychology behind Social Media Envy and I won’t even pretend that I can explain it to you better. Hence, here’s an exerpt:
We’ve all read interviews with celebrities, or maybe even friends’ blogs, in which they go on and on about how great their lives are, and we wonder what horrible shit we must have done in a past life to be dealt the hand we’ve got now. Bills, relationships, family, jobs … everything just sucks. Meanwhile, everyone else in the world is running around with their sex and money and interesting hobbies. Sure, those people might have some minor inconveniences from time to time, but not like you.
I think the title says it all.
I’m giving away some KPOP stuff that I have bought/gotten, which I’ve never opened nor used before. I’m not a big merch fangirl and honestly, I don’t like collecting goodies because they just end up getting old in my room. I even got Johnny’s/Jpop magazines from 2005/2006, which are just sitting around here and are totally irrelevant now (Akanishi Jin was still the hottest shit back then and KMF2 were just babies). I don’t want that to happen to my KPOP goodies so as a thank you to my readers as well, I’m giving away:
1. Girls’ Generation’s “Oh!” album (Korean release)
I’m not the biggest fan but FYI Sooyoung is my favorite.
2. Shinee’s “Hello” album (Korean release)
WTF is Taemin wearing?! LOL animalistic concept!
Earlier this month, Funny Sexy had a photo shoot with The Haga Twins at the Art Movement Studios. It was such a fun experience and honestly, it’s my first “beauty” shoot so I was really excited. Art Movement Studios is best known for their head shots and I kid you not, they’re reeeeaaaally good. Check out their gallery, guys! They also offer studio rentals for as low as Php 1,000 for 3 hours, inclusive of the lights and even an assistant. If you’d like to hone your photography skills, I suggest you check out the place.
We’ve uploaded the behind the scenes shots from the pictorial on the Official Miwha and Michiko Haga fan page and I’m sure you guys are excited to see the final product (or maybe not and I’m just assuming lolz). Thanks so much again to our awesome photographer, Mr. Raphael Yu, our make-up artist Ms. Winshayna Young (also of the UP Street dance crew) and the Art Movement Studios team!
