Slowly Spring is coming to Japan!
This year it seems very slow and after a warm day we get kicked in the balls with at least two winter days, but Spring is definitely coming! Yay!
So I’d like to just tell you what I did the past two weeks. (At least the highlights..)
Finally I could meet the lovely Kaila (also listens to the name Rainbowholic).
She is a Philippine girl who lives in Japan and loves everything kawaii.
For Japan Fans she even kicked off this big project and made a Homepage/Community called JapanLoverMe and managed to gain a lot of followers over a short period! (Now over 250.000 on Facebook! Woow!)
We had waffles in Harajuku for breakfast and because she is “Rainbowholic” and a rainbow lover, I gave her one of my rainbow leather wing necklace. I so hope she likes it! ♡
Also I got blessed with gifts and got a ‘kawaii’ t-shirt, post cards, buttons etc. from JapanLoverMe and Rainbowholic.
After a loong and nice chat we went to take purikura (of course!) By the way: I wished I had such long skinny legs!! Nice job, computer! He!
My outfit that day. (Or let’s speak in tags: #ootd)
Vintage blouse and baseball jacket, silver designer skirt, Tokyo Bopper platform shoes, wing earrings, tooth necklace and flower crown with birds by me. (Detailed pics of the floral headband later.)
Last week I had to go and renew my Japanese drivers license and wasted a whole day for that (incl. lessons/videos on how to drive safely). Firstly you have to renew your drivers license every three years in Japan. Pretty much annoying.
(3 years in Japan. Before and after.)
The plum blossoms moved away to make space for the cherry blossoms to bloom now, but I’ll post some plum blossom photos anyway.
Due to too much spring feelings I also created some new accessories / jewelry for the season.
(They start selling at Avantgarde in Harajuku from 1st April – online sale starts later. If you want to get your hands on such piece, reserve via mail or comment. Because: LIMITED ITEM!)
Cherry blossom make-up
Made myself a choker necklace with a vintage stone. Very pretty.
Also I finally managed to make a proper banner for my Facebook page! I think for now its okay?!
My ordered hair dye arrived in the post! I always order directly from the U.K. since I dye my hair with LaRiche Directions hair dye. Because someone recommended me Crazy Color I also ordered some to see how they are. Let me know if you are interested in the results and I post about it.
So I refreshed my pastel hair a bit with blue and also made a gradation into pastel green. I guess that’s what you call ‘dip dye’. Or Mermaid Hair? Maybe I have mermaid hair now. I am a trending ‘pastel goth mermaid’. There ya go!
Also you might just glimpsed at another item I made just yesterday:
A cherry blossom flower crown. That is some tough work, but the result is lovely. Am wondering if I should offer them on Etsy or my shop?
Since I am kind of playful with eye make up recently I want to show you this purple & blue eyeshadow. So much spring feeling.
And since we are looking at flower crowns already, here some more decent shots of the floral headband with birdies.
Tomorrow morning my husband and me will start our business trip through Asia, that’s why I wont be blogging before 2 weeks..
(But I will keep posting on Instagram & Twitter so if you wanna stay up to date, just follow me: @onegai_kaeru)
See you soon, you lovely spring birds!
