Change me! 

I attended my coworker’s wedding party last weekend. So, I got dressed up ! Before that, I checked makeup tips for wedding party and then I found MACnificent me

This is an event by MAC and everyone can apply for it to change yourself. You can see 6 people who tried this event. I was happy to see them because they looked more confident and was proud of themselves. I thought I shouldn’t miss opportunity to show myself. Appearance is important and give people my impression. So, I decided to do different makeup this time.  I used Makeup base and condition my skin tone! I don’t take time when I have work in the morning so my makeup is done in 10mins. But this time it took me 30mins. Unfortunately I didn’t take a photo of me but my colleagues told me “You are different today! You are stunning. ” I’m so glad at reaction. 

Sometimes I’m afraid of changing and keep staying at comfortable place. But that’s not right 🙂 Change is hard and difficult but there must be reward. 


Right to brag

Tell us about something you (or a person close to you) have done recently (or not so recently) that has made you really, unabashedly proud. 

The other day, my husband had his  procedure. We have 3 year old nephew Leo. He did coloring for my husband to show his consideration. I was blown away by it. He is a little kid but now he’s able to be worried about someone. It brought me tears. This is my unabashedly proud recently.  


Open up a Pandora’s box. 

Braveblossoms, Japanese national rugby team played very well and it’s unfortunate that they exited  World Cup before quater semifinal😣 They surprised the world because they won thier opening game over South Africa and other 2 wins in their pool. I didn’t expect the result and I was the one who raise my eyeblow with  a surprise🎉 They made welcomed history,too! Even though they won 3 games in the pool, they failed to go in quarter semi final. That’s the  first time since World Cup started. 

I got a lot of powers from their games and their plays. I felt their passion and it made me cry.They made their style and improved in many ways. Japanese national team, they were 10 foreigner players and they choose to play as Japan. I have gratitude to them. 

Captain in the team wasn’t original Japanese. He was  New Zealander but finally his nationality bacame Japanese. He is fluent both in English and Japanese.  He said at press conference, “Having a good conversation with a referee is important to play rugby. Speaking and understanding English give advantage on controlling  a game  . We could do that this World Cup. ” 

It’s not only playing well, but rugby needs communication with a referee in English. English is another challenge for next World Cup in Japan. Maybe not only for them, it’s also my challenge, too. 

Their training was the toughest one more than others and showed world that they’d changed a lot and changed Japanese view of rugby. I looked over rugby rule before the game against Samoa and I enjoyed the game very much. I was sure. that there were a lot of people who did the same thing. I watched a game Australia and Wales. It was an exciting game,too. Islanders did traditional dance before kicking off. That was manly! 

I can’t wait for the next World Cup in Japan🏉🇯🇵  Braveblossoms were literally and truly Brave! They’re gonna surprise the world again✨

Current sushi train 

I had sushi at sushi train restaurant スシロー(Sushiro)🍣.

I’m itchy to go there sometime. It’s because reasonable and there’re other menu too. Recently new IT technology help both the restaurant and customers.   

It’s very important to keep freshness for raw fish! So what their system does is to throw sushi away when it is on a lane more than 350m automatically. Each plate has ic chip so the system know  how long sushi plate on the lane! It’s smart way to manage freshness of sushi! 

You can pick up sushi from the lane, but also order what you want by touch panel.

Just touch and it’s coming and before arriving, it announces “Your order is coming!”. Multiple languages are displayed such English, Chinese, Korean etc. You can enjoy sushi without Japanese! 

There are over 80 items including unique ones here. Can you imagine Bacon sushi ? It wasn’t bad actually.  

What about Coffee. I think this is a great idea that they have coffee. You don’t have to go find a cafe and many people want to have a coffee after lunch or dinner to freshten their months.  

 Eventually I ordered iced cafe latte and a piece of  cheese cake and gateau chocolat set.  
Other good point here is that each table has hot water faucet. So you can make own green tea at your table.  

My husband and I had 17 plates(34 sushi) , one ramen, miso soup , 2 deserts and my cafe latte. Total:2,800 yen(it’s about USD24). 

Hope this info helps your info about Japan and I am living in near Kyoto and Osaka. If you need more information, please let me knows the following contact info. I will answer your questions! Of course it’s free!

Turning point! 

I had hair cut yesterday. During the time, I read fashion magazines and realized I’m turning 30 in January. I’m a fashionista but I’m becoming 30 and my skin and my body are gonna change so I’ve decided that I change my clothes and cosmetics in 2016. 

First of all, I want to change my cosmetics.I haven’t used high brand such Chanel,Lancôme and so on. It must be good but I can’t  keep on buying it due to the price! So it should be more affordable! Now I am looking for a red lipstick. There are many of nice colors in Chanel. I can buy it there for One point makeup! 

Clothes is difficult! I am short so I’d I want to buy it, sometimes I can’t buy it. Many models look nice in the magazine. I wanted to try  every clothes on! 

Well, this is what I thought last weekend. Any tips and suggestions are always welcomed. 

Move forward! 

My husband had varicocele surgery and I really appreciate that he took this surgery for changing our future. 
Varicocele is a situation that blood flows back and it turns up temperature around  testicles and kills sperms inside, which means it affects having a baby. Our doctors sais to us “you can choose micro fertalization but varicocele might work out and Natural conception might be possible. ”

So, He decided to take this without asking me. His doctor was very surprised at his answer. Another chance came and let us try out how we handle the issue as spouse. This is not first time to face up to such a issue for us. We might have gone through a lot of things. It was hard but we realized and confirmed what we think and what we are doing. He deserves to be a father and I’m looking forward to the outcome. 

We moved forward 🙂
