hey tgs!

Going to a live concert feels amazing, right?! One recent fave (other than Blackpink, which I mentioned last month) was seeing P!nk with my sister. P!nk is SUCH a performer – her aerial stunts are something else – and you can tell she’s giving each show everything she’s got. On the car ride home, my sister and I blasted all P!nk’s hits and sang along (and my sister’s not usually a singing in the car type of gal!). Welcome to the POP issue of TG – we’re all about music, pop culture, celebs and more. Stay for a while and get stars in your eyes, hehe. XO Claire and Team TG…

Hi Total Girl, I love Total Girl magazines because of the fun things you can do in them. It is very cool! From Layla Hi Layla, Thank you for the lovely letter and photo. We hope you enjoy this fun-filled issue, be sure to check out the DIYs! Love, Team TG x Dear Total Girl, My name is Emma and I am nine. I love Totally Embarrassing, it makes me laugh. I have two guinea pigs: Popcorn and Nuggets. Nuggets is Popcorn’s older sister and is very cheeky, she always nips my dad when we get them out. Popcorn sits on my knee and does not nip at all, she sits there looking cute and gets sleepy. I would like to visit China because I’ve only been there when I was two years old and can’t remember…

Spidey senses I was at a museum in the insect section. I was looking at a spider and the sign said it was alive. So I went up closer to the glass to have a look. Suddenly, the spider’s leg moved and I screamed so loud, everyone was looking at me! Nadineayla This cinema has surround sound (and smell) I was at my crush’s birthday party at the cinema. I was sitting next to him in the front row. The cinema was quiet and even though I tried to hold it back, I did a quiet fart. Right. Next. To. Him. I muttered, “Uh… oops!” Everyone in the front row smelled it! It wasn’t the noise that was bad; the scent was 100 times more powerful. YIKES! Gwen Smooth moves I was at my school’s talent show…

ARE YOU READY FOR THIS YETI? A large hairy beast hasn’t caused such a stir at TGHQ since the time a Saint Bernard ran amok in our office. Large, fluffy yeti Everest, the star of new flick Abominable, has won all our hearts. Just you watch the trailer – he makes adorable sounds and his ears move. If he showed up in person (in yeti?) we would give him a hug. Turn to page 12 for some Abominable-themed LOLs and to page 26 for a tutorial so you can make your very own Everest. So fluffy! SNAPS FOR YOUR PET Quick, look around. Do you see a dog, cat, fish, ferret, parrot, hamster, horse? Is it your very own creature? Have you entered this awesome animal into this year’s Pet of the Year…
