My lates nail work

I have just started to do nails here in Japan, at a salon named Mystery Queen. It’s located in Roppongi, so easy acces from Shibuya or Harajuku. You can check out the website here.

My first costumer was a really nice and kind costumer. She is doing massage, and have rills in her nail plate, so she just wanted something short and clean. I used Coverpink and Blisspink acrylics from Harmony to give a very natural look.

A other costumer wanted colorblock nail art, which I never tried before, and the third one wanted a nice summer look 🙂

I did do a set of kawaii nails too, but I forgot to take a picture…. Buuuuh.

I hope you like what I have done so far!

Toyko nails!

Aaaaah lately I have been busy with my Japanese studies that I do everyday at ARC-Academy, and homework after that! And, walking home from school in Tokyo is almost like walking home when I was in preschool…. Stop and look at everything and playing with friends and finding new ways that usually take more time to get home… Yup. For the moment now I live with my host family in Harajuku, and like that a lot! But walking trough Harajuku on way home ( or just walking anywhere in Tokyo generally), suddenly all my time is gone and I almost have no time for homework! I never understand where the time went…. Oh well しょうがない!

Enought of that!

I have taken some nail pictures of a few shop workers from 109 mall in Shibuya! They are really pretty!

I want to take more photos of Tokyo nails, but the shop workers are usually so nice to talk with, and they show you all this nice stuff and suddenly your wallet hurts a bit! So I kinda try to avoid going into shops xD but that won’t give me more nail, so I guess I’ll just have to be more strict…. Haha

Please take a look! ヾ(@⌒ー⌒@)ノ.。.:*☆.。.:*☆

Visiting one of Tokyo’s beautyful shrines

roppongishringegarden_editedroppongishrinepond_editedroppongishrinehahami_editedroppongishrinehanapond_editedroppongishriinefishtails_edited Right next to where I live now in Roppongi, there is a very nice shrine and grave yard. I like to come here to visit the Koi fishes and the turtles in the pond 🐱 It’s very relaxing, peaceful and beautiful! The white Koi fishes light up like a totally reflecting moon when the sun hit them! While the orange ones have a really vivid and sparkling color! I love it! The sakura trees here are also in full bloom and makes the scenery even more striking. I wish I was a real good photographer to catch the shrines beauty ❤

I bet the shrine workers who always are there to take care of the facilities wonder why this weird gaijin (foreign) girl comes to stare at the pond and then leaves again…. -.-‘  I like pretty shiny things, ok?

I won’t deny that I’m pretty easy to recognize, specially when foreigners make 1.54% of Japan’s population…! I noticed this clearly when I went to Y!mobile and the shop lady said,” Hi! are you here to change your phone deal from L to S? Come with me!”, or when I went to the bank, and the counter lady said ” Oh you are here to change the phone number in your account right??”. They remember everything haha. I love the service in Japan, as they help you with everything and fix everything for you, Makes new confusing things so much easier. Even doh they hardly speak english, they try hard ❤

A lot happens in Harajuku on a Saturday!

kimnofront_edited kimonoback_edited kimonocloseupfront_edited As I walked down to Harajuku this Saturday, I came across a vintage kimono shop! And, since I really love kimonos, the well made fabrics and hand crafts, I had to go inside! They had so many beautiful kimonos, and it was hard to choose which one i wanted the shop worker to take out for me… cus I couldn’t have her to take out all of those I wanted to look out….

I found this one, cus I really liked the lace pattern that made a fun twist and the color! When she asked if I wanted to try it on I could not say no… so she completely styled me up! First time for me wearing a kimono! Aaah it’s so beautiful! And only 30.000yen for the kimono included the Obi, underwear, and everything else I was wearing! It’s a really good price, but kimonos is only for winter wear, so I maybe get to wear it only once a year, plus that price is almost half of houserent….  It was a good and fun experience doh!

Fact: In summer, they have something that is called a Yukata, it looks like a kimono, only made in cotton, not silk. so much cheaper and mostly used for matsuri (festivals) 🙂

After saying goodbye and thanking the shop worker many times I continued my way to La Foret where I was supposed to meet Ida, when I saw Adidas having a  happening on the corner! I love Adidas too, so had to be checked out ofc…! They had a Adidas Supercolor event where ppl could dance on a small stage for few sec with their new shoes  ( you had to choose between 50 colors!!!) while they filmed it, and put the clip on their home page! It looked very fun, and the Adidas lady asked me if I was there to dance and that I would look good up there ( in my already flashin colors….haha)..! immediately I said “Thanx, but noooo, no no no!”. But then I thought, I am in Harajuku, Japan, Adidas is having an event, why don’t just have fun and say yes to what comes to me. Soooo I asked if the line was long, she said no, and suddenly I was behind the scene to change shoes.. hahah so embarrassing  dancing in middle of the street.. but it was fun!

I checked the link they gave me, but can’t find my clip or any of the others dancin before me, so either they are not using it or it will come later. The link for the event is here!

I finally met up with Ida, and did some small shopping before meeting up with my boyfriend  and head to Yoyogi park, when I saw U Kimura at Takeshita Station!!! Ghaaaaw I have never been starstruck before, but this girl I really adore! heleneukimura_edited She is a model for my favorite magazine, Kera magazine, a voice actor, fashion icon and have been a Harajuku Embassador ( spreading Japanese fashion and culture overseas) and have now also made her own brand that she have been working hard to accomplish! Her brand, KokoKim, can be bought at the 109 mall in Shibuya. I was also wearing one of her tights at this moment! haha I was so excited to meet her xD

Hanami at Roppongi Hills with Ida <3

I haven’t been able to post anything yet since the internet connection where I live at the moment is really bad…. So now I’m sitting at Starbucks. Haha x) The well-known and to-beautyful-to-be-true Hanami-season in Japan ( the blooming of the Cherryblossoms) arrived a bit earlier this year, so good thing I got to see it, since it only last for a couple of weeks. These pictures were taken about one week ago, when Ida and I went to Roppongi Hills! Roppongi Hills is a biiiig building with shops, cafe and parks. Builded right over a big crossing. It also have an amazing view to the old Tokyo Tower, where they also have a One Piece full size exhibition right now! I gotta check that out soon….I put a link  for those who is interested in what it is here! Click on the pictures for more details ❤

I’m creating something。。。!(*^_^*)

I finally made time to sit down and create something! I really missed doing stuff like this!

I’m not really sure what its gonna end up like yet, but I think it will be some kind of a head piece… Haha. Anyway, this is the base that is finished now, and I will post later what other kinda stuff that ended up on this frilly creation ☆彡

I hope you like it so far! ☆〜(ゝ。∂)
