We went to: the Suntory Yamazaki Distillery!

October 22, 2017

1

We had to. Who wouldn’t? We had the perfect excuse/reason: My brother-in-law LOVES whiskey. We were going to be in Kyoto. Who wouldn’t put those two together? While I’m not sure exactly how my BIL feels about Suntory SPECIFICALLY, I don’t think any whiskey-lover would turn a distillery tour down. I certainly never turn down […]

We went to: Hiroshima!

October 21, 2017

My sister and her husband also wanted to visit Hiroshima. They’d been to see Pearl Harbor the year before, so it made sense to see ‘the other side of things’ while they were here. Mark and I were really excited about this, as it would be the farthest west we’d been on Japan’s main island, […]

I tried Ren’s Instant Finishing Beauty Shot

I chose this sample out of many that were NOT cruelty free with my most recent order from Sephora. I didn’t really care too much about what it did, as long as the company was as clean as possible. I’m interested in Ren because I can actually get them here in a few places, so […]

09. 36 Views of Mount Fuji, Cathy Davidson (August 7) … on finding myself in Japan. This book seemed like a no-brainer for me. I am here, living in Japan, and learning a lot of new things about myself, other people, and life in general. So it made sense to pick it up and give […]

July 24: The Girls

08. The Girls, Emma Cline (July 24) And then I didn’t read or listen to another book until July. Seriously, I don’t even remember what I was doing in that time. My guess? My in-laws came to visit us here in Tokyo in May, and I was hell-bent on learning as much Japanese as I possibly […]

March 18: The Drowned World

07. The Drowned World, J.G. Ballard (March 18) THIS. THIS is how far behind I am right now. I’m posting a blog about a book I finished in March. Apologies. I picked up this book while we were visiting my in-laws in the UK last year. I think I just liked the cover. The colors grabbed me, […]

I tried: Sunday Riley’s CEO moisturizer

I know, I am SO FAR BEHIND on the blogs. Shit has been so GD busy around here since May! I’m doing my best to play catch-up at work and whenever I have a few free minutes to write stuff down. Stories. They are coming. One of the first things I will share that is […]
