A very sweet and popular tulle dress. Pin tucks on the chest and collars design dresses is a recent trend for Japanese fashion. The design looks so lady-like and lovely. The high waist and tulle material combination is really unique.

There is this cake shop within the grounds of Chou line’s Mitaka station. The shop is selling freshly baked pies and tarts with generous toppings of fresh fruits, besides cakes. I love especially their tarts, but calories is my greatest enemy when I am on diet. I have since made efforts to “distant” myself from the shop for quite a while.
On valentine’s day, I decided “why not?” and went down to get myself a piece of cake and a tart.
TOOoooo satisfying, the cake and tart.
d(^o^)b A few rounds of extreme work-outs will follow next after I went home today －＝≡ (;^･_･^)
Doesn’t the cake box look artistic?
1. Red fruit custard tart
Huge combination toppings of all sorts of berries. Strawberries, raspberries, dark cherries, red-currants, and mulberries. Too luxurious! *yummy*
2. Chocolat amer
A very thick, concentrated chocolate cake that melts instantly in your mouth. The strong taste of melted chocolate “secretly spreads” to the entire mouth. Indescribable, the level of deliciousness!
A pickup of spring-like fashion style.
The combination of denim like material jacket and tuck cropped pant goes too well together. This cool, relaxing style is casual but very trendy without feeling out of place even at work.
All of a sudden, I felt like eating Mcdonald’s Teriyaki burger (Japan’s very own version). Oh yes, each country’s Mcdonald’s apart from regular ones, have their own extra version of burgers. The below made up the regular menu of Japan’s Mcdonald’s. So what are the varieties in your country?
Today is valentine day.
For all those lonely souls out there, why not treat yourself to a meal at Mcdonalds?

This monotone dress looks very simple, yet graceful with the sheer flower motif that wraps the around the shoulder. The fitted waist which gives a flattering silhouette, looks very feminine, doesn’t it? Try adding a belt or accessories to enjoy small occasional changes of style.
Its been known that Japanese women tend to look younger than their age. I couldn’t agreed more with it, after spending years of living here, “studying” the faces of Japanese women.
My “object of study” took place in trains, supermarkets, streets, restaurants and even television. Frankly I am not sure if its the power or makeups or eating habits or the skincare efforts that Japanese women in to stay young. I haven’t got a clue, but there are in fact many young looking pregnant women, mothers with children, elderly women with few wrinkles on face, young women with flawless skin and rosy cheeks.
This time round, I will introduce a few famous Japanese women whom I think look way below their age.
1: Aoi yu (Age 27 -Actress, model)
Doesn’t Aoi yu look like a secondary school student? Most of the time, I was even wondering if she is wearing any makeups at all on national TV. It might sounds scary(?), I had a feeling that perhaps she never will age.
2: Miyazaki aoi (Age 27 -Actress)
A face that is highly exposed in CM, dramas and movies. Many might think that Miyazaki aoi is still single because of her baby-face. Actually she was married, but got divorced only recently.
3: Ueto aya (Age 27 -Actress,singer,model)
Ueto aya is known as the “Queen of CM” since she appeared in many CM. Her pure and innocent looks could be a big factor to her popularity. She looks very fresh for a 27 years old.
4: Ishihara satomi (Age 26 -Actress)
Although Ishihara satomi looks very young, she had owned a big name in the entertainment, acting in many important in dramas. She has beautiful skin and full lips.
5: Inoue mao (Age 27 -Actress)
Inoue mao was made famous after appearing as the lead actress for dram “Boys over Flowers” (base on manga). Doesn’t she look cute?
6: Fukada kyouko (Age 30 -Actress, singer, talent)
Despite the fact that Fukada kyouko’s face is simply flawless and wrinkle-free. How could that be for a 30 years old?
7: Adachi yumi (Age 31 -Actress,talent)
Adachi yumi first made her appearance as a child star. It was said that her face stayed the same from childhood. But don’t be surprised that she was divorced with a child.
8: Asada mao (Age 21 Figure skater)
From age 15, Asada Mao, a figure skater has been representing Japan in many competitions. She was known as the “fairy on ice” from her lovely performance on ice and voted as “most favourite sports woman” in Japan.
This limited edition (limited stock) dual purpose makeup for the cheek and lip is a new release.
Application on the lip adds a faint shade of red to it and the result is natural.
The trick to achieve a florid complexion or enhance the coloring is to use it as a base, prior to the application of cheek makeup or lip gloss.
Reviews are good, with many saying that the result was very natural although they were surprised by the “blood-color like” when they first opened up the cover.
To add-on, some users even use for their eye makeups.
In all, this is a really convenient multiple usage color enhancement makeup.
This sweet flower prints spring dress was featured in the famous Japanese magazine CanCam of March edition.
It is made of chiffon material and comes in the popular baby doll style.
The Scallop hem, puff sleeves, pin tucks are just so lovely. These are the details that enhanced sweetness to the dress overall. *NICE*
This is a continuation of Tokyo collection 2012 spring summer that I had posted earlier.
This time round, I had picked up a few numbers by renown Japanese fashion designer known as “Matohu”.
Simple and neat, clear cut is how I think of Matohu’s work. These pieces are glamorous and they done a great job in enhancing the feminine side of woman. Also, choice of material and style are extremely natural such that it could be worn in daily life without feeling any bit of exaggeration.
I wonder if he sells these…
