ideal body types through history

on a non-zine note, I found this quite interesting as I scrolled through Nylon on this post-school Wednesday. a spot on and interesting (to say the least) insight on how the "style" of women has transformed. compared to other eras, how does a look at the standards of the past couple decades make you feel?

the pretty committee

okay, for any of you who have read The Clique Series by Lisi Harrison (aka MY TWEENHOOD), this one's for you.

we are forming a Launch Party Committee for anyone interested in
a) being cool
b) making party playlists
c) decorating
d) being nice
e) arranging art
f) picking food
g) being our friend
h) getting what you want at the party as far as all of these things go
i) meeting Miss Natalie Neal before anyone else
j) bossing people
k) being a part of a committee (bc lol college apps, am i right?)

Just kind of imagine that we are the Massies, putting this whole Launch together - except jk because we are doing the actual work and not hiring servants, but i said IMAGINE.

ALSOOOO, we will probably have a little something extra sweet for all of those that sign up. You can sign up either by commenting here, commenting on our Insta (@gohszineclub), or emailing us (

If you do not want to help-help, but might be willing to shed a buck or two, here are some little things that we would also love you for:
a) temporary tattoos (cool ones, if you can)
b) bubbles
c) any coolish food you could bring (let us know before)
d) balloons
f) face paint
e) anything else you think would be nice!

AND FINALLY: we are still taking art for the ART GALLERY that we will be featuring at the Launch! You can send it to us, no matter your location, and can either opt to simply display it or sell it!

flipping mail us and do something cool.

kiss hug kiss hug,

how we feel about this gross, bloated week before Issue #1 will officially be put out. but, like we usually do when we feel gross and/or bloated, we have been watching lots of Law and Order and then trying to do something that makes us feel like we accomplished something.

that something would be deciding the theme of ISSUE #2!!!
check up on the "Submissions" page (top right side) to get the scoop and read up on our new submission guidelines.

another thing would be putting out some numbers (also known as "TIMES") for you guys to show up to that LAUNCH PARTY we have been rambling about. here you go: 6-10 p.m. That should certainly be enough time to eat food, get a temporary tattoo, take a photo at the photo booth with your new friend who also love Wes Anderson, peruse the art gallery, eat some more food, listen to music, fangirl over Natalie Neal, watch the screening of her new film "Seashells", listen to a live Q & A, get her autograph (if you're lucky), buy a zine, enter one of the many raffles, and play in the bubbles, RIGHT?

official LP flyer. art by Cait Deleon, 10th, Philippines ;)

if you weren't at meeting #13, some tidbits for you:

-zine will be printed in black and white (bc color is for millionaires, apparently), but we will be selling a limited amount of color at a slightly higher price

-we will try to print it on recycled paper, as always

-the black and white zine price will be from $1-$1.50 (TBA)

-start submitting NOW for Issue #2!

-email/comment/text any resolutions you have for Zine (but do not tell us to lose weight)! We have already gotten some great resolutions!

FINALLLLYYY, we will open up the club activity forum to YOU GUYS next week! This means that if anyone has an activity that they would like to be in charge of for next week's meeting, let us know before Wednesday, and we will set you up. This is your chance to get involved. If you are too shy to stand up there and tell people what to do, then just send us a suggestion and we will review it.

dare to be different,
ALyson and Shaylie
