#MCM | Adam Gallagher


Hello everyone!

Seems like I’ve never done something like this before. Well, the concept behind this is just to tell you about these amazing men that I have in line for you, haha. I’m just going to show you some men that I have in mind who are not only good looking, but who also have a quite succesfull career of their own. It can vary from bloggers and youtubers to artist and singers. Shall we start with this handsome dude overhere?

Adam Gallagher

Adam gallagher  is a succesfull 24 years old fashion blogger. With his blog, named I AM GALLA, he reaches millions of readers, but we’ll talk about that later. Adam is born on October 10th, 1991. He is 5’11, that is something like 180cm – goddamn, that’s a really beautiful height, wish I was that tall. Adam has 1.8+ million followers on Instagram, 134.966 fans on Lookbook and 34.621 followers on Twitter. Anyways, I couldn’t find much information about him. It seems like he keeps his private life quite private, haha. I really hope that I can meet him someday!

I AM GALLA

As I already said before, I am Galla is Adam’s highly-popular men’s fashion blog. He doesn’t only share his sense of fashion, but also stuff about lifestyle, travel and photography. I am Galla started as a hobby that turned into a fulltime career. Gallagher started his blog when he was only 17 years old and slowly it got more popular and now by the age of 24 his blog is one of the most recommended and viewed under the men’s fashion category. I am Galla has won a few times the bloglovin’ award for Best Men’s Fashion Blog and Gallagher has worked with some serious big brands in the fashion industry such as Polo Ralph Lauren, Armani, Gucci, Hugo BOSS, Rayban and so on – So, he is quite the big deal, hahaha. If you ever need a fashion helpdesk, you should definitely check his blog out, but of course I’m your first choice, hahaha. Nah, just kidding!

I’m sorry that I couldn’t find a lot of information about him, I’m usually quite good at this kind of thing, but it looks like Adam is better at keeping his private stuff private, hahaha. I always say we’ve gotta do with what we have. If you guys find some interesting fact or information, let me know in the comments below! Oh and also let me know if you like these kind of post.

Back and ready!


Hey whats up, it’s been awhile! – that Zayn reference tho.

Anyways, hello everyone and of course it has been awhile. How are you all doing? I’m literally doing real good. There isn’t actually a reason why I haven’t been posting anything in a long time. I think it is because I changed to another blogname and url and I have been doing other stuff in my life as well. Now, that I’m back, I think it is my responsibility to update you all on what have and has happened in my life so far.

I’ve got my driver license!

Yeah, you are reading it correctly! I’ve finally got my driver license and I’m so happy about it. It took me just a little bit more than a year to get it, but I’ve finally got it. I don’t know yet when I’m going to post it, but on wednesday 18th May, I’m going to pick up my car. Yes, you are reading that correctly as well, haha. I also have a car by that date.

Rome, you were awesome!

The last time that I wrote anything about travelling was when I went to London. Unfortunately, I didn’t write anything about how my experience in London was, but I can assure you that it was lovely. London did not disappoint me at all! Anyways, I’m heading off topic again. The last time that I went to Italy was just recently. I went from 2nd of May till 6th of May. I went together with my mom and her friend and the children of her friend. This time is my third time to Italy already and this time I went to Rome. The other two times I went to a place called Prato which is between Pisa and Bologne. Rome was very exhausting, but really fun! It was quite exhausting, because I had to organize everything, from booking the hotel and the flight to being the ‘guide’ because I was the only one who could speak English. Aside from all the exhaustion, it was a learning experience for myself as well!

New work, New me

Before I took the break from blogging I used to work in a Japanese restaurant and in that time when I was gone I found a new job. It’s a Japanese restaurant as well! Haha. Now, I work for their competitors. The restaurant is called Yumi and the concept is all you can eat, just the same as with my old job. The funny thing is that I didn’t had a job interview because they saw that I have worked in the same kind of environment before, but for my past job I didn’t had a job interview as well. The only job interview that I had was for a supermarket. The reason why I actually quit that job was that I wasn’t feeling comfortable with myself, but at my new job I am really feeling comfortable. My co-workers are nice and quite free spirited, haha.

Thank you so much for stucking with me even though I’m not one of the greatest out there, but I will try and do my hardest best!

Loves,

Jaychi

July Favourites


goodbye july, hello augustHi there!

Wow, first month is already over and guess what…I am still consistently posting 3 days a week! OMG, I’m really proud of myself for being able to do that, haha. Usually, I’m not feeling it anymore after a few days, but I’m still posting. I think I really like this, but it does use a lot of time! There’s something I want to tell you all before I’m continue to the rest of this post.

After this month, my school is starting again and I have a feeling that I can’t post consistently anymore. I have explained my situation a little bit to you all and I really need to do my best the up coming school year since it will be a lot harder than it used to be so of course, I’m going to put a lot more time into school than this. However, I will try my best to upload at least once a week by then!

Favourite moment
4th Juy 2015, the lauch of my blog! I was and still am really proud of my blog launch. I really love the lay-out of my blog and what I like the most is that real people really do come over and take their time to read my blog! It is so cool. What even more surprising is that I am still updating and posting my blogposts on time! My blog already exists for 1 month! Woohoo~~~ Let’s hope for more great adventures and things to come on its way!

Favourite fashion item
I haven’t really posted anything fashion related except for the 2 sneaker posts I did. However, I still have some fashion pieces in my closet that I really like and wore this month. It is my long cardigan which I bought at the Pull & Bear store in Rotterdam! I wore it almost everyday, haha. This piece is very easy to style with even people who aren’t really good in styling can wear it fabulous! I wore it the most in the morning when I wake up. I sleep in a tanktop and shorts so when you wake up it is usually cold and that’s why I wear this to keep myself a little bit warm. I’ll show you a picture below and probably I will be using this in my Best Styled Looks post which will be coming up soon.

Favourite app
My favourite app at the moment is Episoder. Since, I have vacation right now I will be watching a lot of television shows. If you are watching a lot it, is very difficult to keep up with the last episode that you’ve watched. Some people watch one show in 1 day or 1 night, but I can’t, haha. Right now I’m busy watching The FlashSupernaturalBaby Daddy and Keeping up with the Kardashians. Some of you will be probably be like ‘What? Keeping up with the Kardashians?’ but I have my reasons for it and you will know why.

IMG_0429

Favourite game
Hmm…favourite game…this one is a lot harder, because I’m not a game fanatic, but I do have a few games on my phone and I can’t really choose which one, haha. I actually love them all so I’ll just name a few that I like the most. I have Simcity, Alphabear, Subway Surfers and Kim Kardashian: Hollywood. I think I will be going for Kim Kardashian: Hollywood because it’s about becoming famous and getting into the A-list. I really like that, haha. I don’t really like the waiting time to refill my energy, but the game itself is amazing! I would say that you should just try it out and see for yourself, but I do recommend you to play Simcity because I think that a lot of people will like to play that one. Kim Kardashian: Hollywood is actually for just a few people who like the journey to become famous while Simcity is more like building your own city. It’s actually just like those The Sims games, but then with a city.

Let me know what your July favourites were in the comment section below! Thank you.

Dear diary | new opportunities


Dear diary,

Lately, there has been a lot going on as I have told you in the last 2 posts. I am so happy and lucky right now, because I got accepted for the special study that I was doing. This is school related again, haha, but you know how it goes in Asian families. School is very important and since my parents are like that I get a lot of stress from it so I need to let it all out and that’s where I got my diary for.

I really can’t believe that god or who ever it is still gives me the chance to have a better education and I’m really grateful for it. The first time I failed, but I didn’t really want to do it at first. I just did it because my parents want me to do it, but know I chose it myself and I got really lucky that I still got the chance and this time I will not fail again! This time I will be working hard and get my diploma for it!

Actually, I can’t really tell much about this, just that I’m very happy and so lucky to be getting the chance for the second time. Next to this I don’t really have anything else going on in my life to be honest. Unfortunately, I’m not going anywhere this summer, but I’m really excited because my grandma is coming over to the Netherlands! Probably I will going to Italy with my little brother and my grandma, but that’s still not for sure yet. I will be going around in the Netherlands with her. Just going here and there and guide her a little bit around. Now that I’m older I feel like I can take the responsibilities to take her to cool and nice places to look and to eat, haha.

Anyways, there’s nothing much left to say so I’ll be closing this part as that I’m very happy and lucky!

Loves,

Jaychi


Hi guys! I’m so excited that my grandma is coming over and I’m so luck! I hope that you liked this post and let me know what you all will be doing in the summer!

Dear Diary | Are we friends?


Dear diary

Lately, I have a few problems with my friends. It’s not physically, but a bit more emotionally. In the beginning of our friendships we were very close and our group started to grow and contained more and more friends. We became a big group of friends which exist of 8 people, but now as we all grow older I have a feeling that the group is breaking apart and the most of my friends is leaving. I don’t know if it is just myself being a little too overconcerned or is it true that this is happening. I don’t really mind if it happens, but the situation where it is now is kind of weird, because I don’t know if we still are a group of friends or that everyone is going their own way and we just speak time to time.

Not too long ago a few friends of mine graduated, but they didn’t invite me to the graduation ceremony, that gives me a feeling that I’m left behind or that you don’t want to be friends with me anymore, but the worst part is that my friend did invite other friends. I don’t mind about that, but you should have asked me at least, because that gives me a feeling that you still thought of me as a friend. We have been friends for almost 6 or 7 years already. I could have said no and I think I would have said no, because I was in my testweek.

I don’t really know what I should be thinking about this right now. It kind of affected my life and myself a bit. So, I don’t really care about them at the moment cause I have my own things to worry about. So, my testweek is done and I have to wait for my results. I have also mailed my teacher about the situation and he have sent my email further to a teacher who has a higher position and he will be making the final decision. I have also registered for a special study as the one I am doing right now, but then in 1 year instead of 2. This study is basically harder, because what I am learning in 2 years, I’ll be learning in 1 year. I really hope that I can redo my year or join that special study. That is my biggest concern at the moment.

Loves,

Jaychi


Thank you for reading one of my personal stories again! I hope you all will still like this 😀

Dear Diary | What am I supposed to do?


Hi there!

Before I start writing in my diary, I would like to explain this a little bit. I came up with this because blogging actually stands for talking about your day and personal life experiences. Actually, I have never really done something like this before so in this section I will be talking about my personal life, the choices that I make and the experiences that I’m going through. I am also doing this for people who could relate to some of my personal experiences, just to let them know that they are not the only on going through this. I hope you will be respecting and accepting for what I’m doing and if not, do not comment or read my diaries. Lots of love, Jaychi.


Dear diary,

I don’t really know where to start right now. So, I’ll just start with the school part. I’m actually really nervous about school lately, because I’m in my testweek right now (I should be learning….) and this testweek is so important to me. I’m right now  in my 4th year of secondary school (I think this is junior) and I still have 1 year to go until I’ll be done with school. I really need to pass this testweek to be in my last year or else I’ll be 1 year without school. Of course, that sounds nice, but I’m still young and I don’t have any certificate so I’ll probably end up without having a career and working my whole life in a restaurant or clothing store. I don’t want that. I’m a ambitious person and I want to have a career! The reason that I really want to go to school is not because of me having an asian background, it is just me as a person who wants a career and don’t want to end up in a restaurant nor any other low paid job my whole life.

So, the only subject that I really need to get a good grade for is music and Monday I made my music test and just yesterday I came to find out about my grade. Unfortunately, the grade that I got wasn’t good enough to get me in to my last schoolyear so I have to drop out of school. I had the opportunity to go to a lower level school, but I don’t want that. I’m happy where I am right now and I really want to go to my last year so that I can finally be done with my secondary school life. I’m almost 18 right now and I really need to get away from the secondary school. I should be in college right now.

So, at the moment that I realize that I couldn’t get in to my last year I immediatly emailed my teacher about this and I have asked if he could do something about it or let me redo this year. I really hope he could give me a positive result so that I still will have a chance of getting in to my last year and be finally done with my secondary school life.

I’m kind of in this position right now where my life can’t turn out how I want it to be. I really hope that my luck will be with me through this so let’s hope for the best, diary!

Loves,

Jaychi
