#FindMyTribe: Shine or Go Crazy Shirt – redux & relaunch!

Lately, I’ve been ALL about Jang Hyuk, you guys.

I mean, not only did he blow me clean away with his magnificent, compelling turn in Money Flower (which is an awesome show which you should totes watch, if you haven’t yet), but he even appeared in my dreams in Pil Joo form, wearing a crisp white shirt, and delivering kisses. *spazz*

At the same time, I’ve been meaning to tweak and relaunch my Shine or Go Crazy shirt (now with other merch available!), on a different platform. Previously, on teespring, there had to be a minimum number of orders before you could get your shirt, and just as challenging, was the fact that teespring operated on a campaign basis. This meant that each design was only available for a limited 21 days.

Not THIS time, my friends! This time, not only is the shirt cheaper, it’s also available any time you want it. And, you can get it on mugs, tote bags, laptop cases, phone cases and such. Woot! 😀

#FindMyTribe Refreshed! Plus, Healer Shirt!

Thanks to everyone who supported #FindMyTribe in its first incarnation, you guys are the best! Thanks for your encouragement and enthusiasm, it’s what keeps me going with this little project. Well, it’s little now, but hopefully it’ll grow into something a little bigger & more robust with time.

Since all the tee cycles last closed, it’s been so quiet in the #FindMyTribe corner of this site that you could practically hear (virtual) crickets. But, I haven’t forgotten about #FindMyTribe, nor the reason that I think it’s a cool idea. [If you’re new to this site, essentially, it’s to give us drama fans a subtler way to wear our drama love, as well as a way to find one another as we wear our shirts proudly into the world! You can check out my original post here.]

While #FindMyTribe was in hibernation, I thought over the entire process and I’m happy to say that I’ve found a more permanent platform on which to offer #FindMyTribe tees. Woot! 😀

Sisterhood Blogging Award!

Thanks to NeeNee, who hosts Asian Addicts Anonymous, for nominating me for this blogging award – which I hadn’t ever heard of, in fact, until she nominated me!

To be honest, the moment I set eyes on the name of this award, I thought of the movie “The Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants.” Have you seen it? It’s a cute 2005 movie that revolves around four friends, and explores friendships, growing up, and the magical pair of jeans that fits all four friends, despite their very different builds and physiques.

I enjoyed the movie quite a lot, and I think the movie poster is cute – which is why I couldn’t resist doing a cheeky take on the movie poster concept, to be my sisterhood blogging award badge.

Whaddya think? Does it work? 😉

#FindMyTribe: Kill Me Heal Me Shirts!

I am super excited, you guys!

Most of you would remember that a little while ago, I’d unveiled a Kill Me, Heal Me shirt, christened Girlie Rebel.

While I was personally very pleased with the design, I also couldn’t help but feel like Girlie Rebel was a little lonely all by herself.

Well, today, I’m unveiling another Kill Me, Heal Me shirt, to make it an actual collection!

And, to welcome the new shirt into the #FindMyTribe family, I’m having a sale on both shirts!

Can I get a big woot! 😀

#FindMyTribe: New shirt design for Kill Me Heal Me!

Lately, I had a couple of requests for a Kill Me, Heal Me shirt, and my various lashings of inspiration suddenly came together today, to make what I think is a pretty awesome shirt, even if I do say so myself! 😉

Celebrating two crowd favorites among Ji Sung’s seven personalities on Kill Me Heal Me, this shirt is a tribute to the lip-gloss loving, unabashedly girlie Yo Na, and the badass rebel with the piercing gaze, Se Gi.

Although in the show, Do Hyun is battling his other personalities to achieve dominance and survival, this shirt is about not just embracing both your inner girlie & your inner rebel; it’s about proudly owning ’em both. Coz why can’t you be both, right?

Despite its show-specific references, as with many of the other #FindMyTribe shirts, this design is able to stand alone even without its drama context.

Use this promo link to check out this shirt in closer detail, and get 20% off, till 28 February 2015!

Please keep on helping to spread the word, you guys. Grateful much! 🙂

Launching: The #FindMyTribe Movement!

THE MISSING LINK

As much as we enjoy chatting about drama with our online friends, there is one consistent refrain that I’ve heard, over and over – and over – again.

“I can’t talk drama like this with my Real Life friends.”

“There is no one in my Real Life who truly understands my drama love.”

I know you’ve heard it before too. You’ve probably said it before as well, yourself.

And much as I love our online community, I can’t help thinking of this as a missing link, for us as a drama-loving community.
