Hello everyone! I’m so sorry for not blogging for a while, I recently got my monitor replaced so I can start posting and editing photos again :glee2 I’ve tried blogging from the WordPress app on the iPad but it’s just not the same as posting from a desktop and uni started again so I thought I should focus more on that as I’m finally in my final year haha.

Anyways the most exciting thing that happened to me recently was probably getting my hair done a few days ago! :raburabu I went to a lovely place called At The Garden Tokyo as they recently opened their second store so they had opening specials. I’ve had a few friends go there and say they had a fantastic experience so I thought I would take advantage of the offer and I’m glad I did! The staff are very friendly and the interior is very nice and comfy with a vintage like feel. I went with a friend but after we were seated we saw 2 of our friends come in to try them out as well, thanks to them for putting up with us :XD

     

I’m trying to grow out my hair layers and get it past my shoulders (I’ve finally finished with my short hair phase?haha) so I just got my hair trimmed and fringe restyled and to get rid of my horrible regrowth. This time I opted for an ashy brown colour. After experiencing bleaching my hair last year, I think I’m going to stick with darker colours for time being. I think the dye job turned out pretty well considering 80% of my hair is still bleached, I’m just wondering how the colour will fade in a few months time :sweat

     

I think they’re definitely worth checking out if you’re looking for a Japanese salon in the city where you’ll be satisfied with your results! They also have 30% off for students and if you refer a friend (you’ll both get the discount!) and 50% off when it’s your birthday :shinyred

Currently my hair inspo is Rinko Murata! At the end of last year she cut her hair short, so I like looking at her currently hair styles since then to get inspired and grow my hair to a similar length. I also like her clothing style – she models for mer, whose concept is for those who “want to become cute”, “want to be fashionable” and “want to be happy”, so I find their coordinates simple but a cute and girly style. I like how it’s casual with more of a focus on coordinates and patterns, so it’s easy to find similar items locally and I don’t have to go through the trouble of buying Japanese brands.

Hot Pepper Beauty is also another good place to see current hair trends in Japan and there’s a lot of styles! It’s a directly of hair salons in Japan, so they upload their styles through there. If you’re in Japan you can also use it to book appointments and there’s coupons you can use wakuwaku

I swear time flies by really quickly, and then when I notice, it’s been a while since I’ve blogged lol. I can’t believe it’s July already! Here are some snaps to finish off June.

I finally got my AmiAmi may order last week! Only 2 items since my June and July orders cost more and I’m saving up for a new camera at the moment. The Masamune Date plushie is a collaboration between GIFT and Algernon Product. Masamune is one of my favourite characters and I love all the super cute plushies GIFT makes, so I immediately preordered it when it became available. The crescent on his helmet got slightly bent, which was a bit disappointing, but I guess it’s a bit hard to package it since it sticks out. He still looks so fierce in his chibi form :blood

     

The other item I got was Shingeki no Mint in grape flavour, which has 6 packets of mints in tins. I was hoping to get Armin but unfortunately I didn’t and got hilarious images on them instead. It smells like it’ll be sweet like grape bubblegum but there’s a kick of citrus in it? which is good to have after eating a meal.

On the 29th of June I got my hair cut, I think it’s been a bit over 6 months since I’ve cut my hair. I usually get my hair cut every 3~4 months, but because I permed my hair I wasn’t sure what cut to get so I just let my hair grow until I got sick of it lol.

This is the hairstyle I used as reference. I really like the hair catalogue of AFLOAT, I think they have cute and simple styles which you can style at home yourself if you don’t want to get an airy perm. I’m always a fan of short hairstyle with layers :eheh

Surprisingly it took 1.5 hours to cut my hair, including hair washing it twice, I thought it would only take 40mins but I guess there was a lot of hair to thin out. Thanks to my hairdresser for all her hard work!

I currently go to blu:/ creativity which I highly recommend! They have nice and friendly service and I really like the atmosphere of the place.

Before and after shot! My head feels so free now :bunny Now I need buy more haircut products and try to figure out how to style short hair again. The great thing about having a perm that I only needed to comb my hair and spray some leave inconditioner to quickly style it.

N2 is a gelato bar which always has really interesting gelato flavours and combinations from regular flavours such as cheesecake to pork floss. And another cool thing is that they use liquid nitrogen in the process of making it!

Last week they had kimchi served with roasted rice gelato so my friends and I decided to try it for fun. The kimchi wasn’t spicy at all and the gelato took away the taste of the kimchi so it was like eating crunchy gelato. A lot of my friends complained about the kimchi aftertaste which they had later on in the night though haha.

     

Do you like Ikea food? I’m not really found of their food meal wise, I prefer eating their desserts and soda more. I usually just order their kids meal because I don’t really like the other meals they serve. I had their seafood meal before and it was sort of like I was eating rubber lol.  Their cream cake with marzipan is my favourite, I love the sweetness and texture of it. And it’s nice getting free soda refills after you pay $2 for the glass.
