olive you

My friend Megan gave me an issue of Olive Magazine, a Japanese magazine that I can only describe as a lifestyle magazine. I guess it’s kind of like a japonesque Martha? There’s some crafting, some food, some profiles of artists, some shopping info, that sort of thing. It’s pretty cute!

Here’s a profile of some crafter who makes little dolls. I love the hedgehog doll (I’m kind of collecting hedgehog-themed items, too, along with soft serve stuff, donut paraphernalia, etc.):

And ideas for making a basket tote much cuter by weaving in fat yarn (fuzzy photo, sorry):

And some beautiful food items. Check out those chocolate hands!

On a completely different note, I had my colonic yesterday. Let’s just say those things are not for everyone. It was quite interesting. If you’re curious about what the contraption that administers the hydrotherapy looks like, read on …

This is the giant plastic chair thing you spend 45 minutes on:

    That chair looks a bit like a dentist’s chair, only frighteningly backwards. Hopefully the experience was mainly pleasant?

    That does look like a cute magazine! Have you ever been to the Hedgeblog? She’s a knitter with a pet hedgehog (and other pets).

    that is gross but i’m really intrigued, i’ve been thinking about it for awhile, especially after living in china and eating better food, and then when i come back home i eat such crap and i feel like maybe i will feel better if i cleanse old stuff and try to eat better… this is really disgusting talk, but i want to know if you feel better! or different? or cleaner? or lighter? better skin? happier? has it changed your outlook on life? are you now rich and beautiful??????

    Interesting…I’ve had them on a sort of massage table. I love how light I feel afterwards. I love the flatness of my stomach too.

    Ooo. I hope you gained some benefit from that. Cute Mag!

    Can I ask how much they charge over there? Is it covered by your insurance company? I really want to do one too.

    I think the chocolate hands freak me out more than the colonic. Is there a need for very realistic but edible hands?

    Is olive oil featured on the cover every month? Can they do that? Maybe the character is so old that it is ok. Really odd! And I never thought her to be too domesticated. In fact of all the sisters in her house, I think she may have been the most boy-crazy, least house wife-ly. Or I could be wrong.
