sakuras & sunshine :)

Last month I made a last-minute trip to Vancouver to meet up with my dear friend from Japan (and the friends he also brought with him, Kana-san and Y-san)! I rarely travel so last minute (I booked the trip about 2 weeks before I left) since usually I have to book my vacation months in advance, … Continue reading

Smiles in Her Eyes

Have I mentioned enough times how bad reading beauty blogs is for my wallet and stash? Lately I’ve become better and being able to resist the brand new ‘thing’ everyone seems to be blogging about, but after reading nothing BUT positive reviews, I gave in and indulged… in Sugarpill. This is the new makeup line … Continue reading

Got My Addictions

Creature of Habit

Excuse the scary picture, this is the only example of my ‘work makeup’ I have… this was taken at 4AM a few nights ago! I’ve been back at work for 3 weeks now, and despite being off for more than a month, it was like I’d never left at all (aside from being sore after … Continue reading

Loves at the End of a Decade

Even though I spent most of the month of December at home, I still think my 2009 ended on a high note, as I got to celebrate Christmas with my family, and more importantly, I went back to work! The first two days were harder than I thought they would be (mostly my body was … Continue reading
