One Piece Tower!

 In April, Ida and me went to something we was looking forward to do for a long time! The One Piece Tower! 

The famous Tokyo Tower was made into a much bigger and better than expected, One Piece theme park! 

This year One Piece celebrate 15th anniversary! The park opened 13.03.15, and to be honest , I couldn’t find out if it’s still open or not….. So if you know it is, please let me know so I can add it in the text!

I wanted to post this a looong time ago, but for some reason no one of my devices would let me make this post… Driving me crazy….Before I finally made it through now!!! 

The park included life sice figures of the main characters, flash back to many of the strong mamorys that will make you cry if you have followed the story, a live show ( which was actually very good, the costumes and makeup was very well made!!!), and games based on each character! Like, test your sword skills with Zoro, shoot down the enemy with Usopp’s …..uhm whats it called that thing where you have a Y- shaped stick, a rubberband between and you pull it back to shoot the stones or whatever?….. Anyway I guess you understand. It was alot of fun! 

Here is the pictures i took!!
  

Waiting for Ida to come, I enjoyed a crepe filled with strawberry icecream and peaches!

JBCG pop-up shop at Wall, LaForet, Harajuku!

Wall at LaForet is one of my favorite shops! The brands creative design never stop impressing me, and the staff is awesome! 

Right now the brand JBCG ( Just Be Crazy Goods ) are having a Pop-Up shop at Wall! A Pop-Up shop is a shop that is selling their products as a guest for a limited time in a other shop or renting a location. 

JBCG is a L.A.  based brand that sell handmade and vintage clothes and jewelry by designer Natsuki-san. I really fell for the jewelry and just as much for the designer her self ! If you know me, why if pretty obivous ; gold, tassels, bright colors, 80’s jewelry, and it got a M.I.A feeling over it 😉 

You can check out the brand here, where you also can buy the goods! Also, please check out LaForet at their Instagram! They post a lot of inspiering photos !

Check out the photos!

The Bamboo Forest in Kamakura!

Hello again!

Now is the rainy season in Japan. One positive thing about that is that the bamboo are greener and fresher than ever! Bamboo is one of my favorite plants, so when my boyfriend asked me if I wanted to go to the Bamboo forest in Kamakura last weekend, I was very happy! We brought with us my room-mate Ida too :3

I’m not really sure how long the train trip was, but about 1 1/2 hour or something, so it’s a nice day trip!

sooo here is a ” small ” selection of photos ( people asked me to take a lot of photos, so I did my best). Sorry about some blurry ones, but that just gives extra charm, nee ;3

Aaaah superexcited! The entrance was a beautyful small Japanese Zen Garden.

  

I really love how Japan takes care of their trees, and support their branches with solid bamboo sticks when needed. But I wonder how it got that nice angle….

Do anyone know why they dress them up like this?

Pretty fish!   ><,*>

Looks like it used to be water here before the bamboo came…

    

In the forest, you could stop to rest and enjoy the forest while have a real hand made Matcha! Matcha is a Japanese green tea made of fine powdered greentea leafs. It is very concentrated and is very bitter. This is also the kind of tea that is used for Japanese tea cermony, and the old ladies working here use their own hands and the pretty bamboo-matcha-whip, to whip the powder and water together! Also, since its so bitter, you get Japanese sweets to have to the tea. I think this was a really nice experience, real matcha tea and amazing forest view! Everything for 700yen ( 200yen without the tea, but you need the tea…!). I would like to go back…

  

Aaaaah drinking tea surrounded by bamboo and new-rain-flower-aroma :3

  

Took a snap with the pretty flowers that seem to be in season for the moment! They are everywhere and gives a nice sent to the city air, but also in the countryside!

On our way back to the station in Kamakura ( we decided to walk instead of taking the bus –> good decision), and we found a staircase down to the river! It was really locked by a chain crossing the entrance, but an old man said we could go down if we wanted to! Yay!

  

Big black Koi! Further up the river we saw some bright orange ones too!

  

Cute house with a small tree right in front of the entrance :3

One of the many shrines to look at! some of them cost 200 yen to visit, but not this one. It was loong and steep stairs, kinda scary since it as all wet. But it made me very curious. Luckily we found a off-road way down that was much more fun 😛

On the top we was met by two very mean looking turtles and two entrances to where you could pray and give drink and food to the gods.

We came across a ceramic shop where they sold these, I fell absolutely in love with them! The picture doesn’t really show how amazing the color blending, textures and the handcrafts itself is! Apparently, they have a gallery in Minato-Ku, where i do nails! You can check their website here, if you are interested!

  

Aaaah I never get tired of these colorful dangly things! makes my smile every time!

On the station waiting for the train. Hmmm… is someone trying to discreetly have a Horror hotel going on here?

And ofc, since the trains stops at Yokohama, we HAD to et off there to enjoy the view of this beautiful place and eat dinner at the China Town !

In all, Kamakura is a nice place where I would like to go back, kinda of a tourist spot, but mainly japanese tourist. Many small nice shops where they sell typical Japanese items, tea shops, and buy old used Japanese things, or new hand-made ones for a good price!

Thank you for the view, I hope you liked it!

*~Ocean Blue Fading ~*

Hello!!

It was time for me too to change my nails, and since I had a lot of blue tones from IBD Just gel and Gelish I wanted to use them together!

image

Ofc, since I usually can’t just leave things as it is, I mixed the colors a bit, added more yellow in the dark blue and made the color on the free-edge more transparent, and added a bit of white to the middle color. And finished it all of with gold and a orange stone in the contrast color ( almost contrast color..), aaand a bit of glitter!
For this fading I used my Gelish brush 🙂

I hope you like it! Nyaaa~ (^o^)v  bye bye!

Layered pastel marble art!

This nice costumer wanted the same marble nails as I was wearing!

image

I love doing marble art, usually I drip the gel colors I want on the nail plate and carefully mix them together, but this time I did a layering technique. That means that first I applied the yellow how I wanted it, cured it, then the red, cured it, and so on until I was finished and the costumer and I was happy with the result.

Its very easy, quick and fun technique that gives best result with transparent colors, where you can see the layering and they build up!
