Foundation flair

Hey guys, I wanted to take some time and share my makeup experiences with you! 

Artistry balancing Foundation

I love this foundation! My mom got it for me and I used it all up now. It covers well but is a bit too light for the summer: I live on a tropical island and I get tan quick. In the fall and winter this one is perfect. Below you can see how it looks on my face  after I added concealer and setting powder. The second pic below is me with my full make up on (and a bit more depth!)

Let me know if you are interested in a makeup video. I would love to make one! 


P2 Ultra Matt 24hours Foundation

I got this one from Germany and I can only use this when I am tanned. It’s too dark to put on my face like this. Sometimes when I want to look a bit tanner than I am, I mix this with a lighter color to give my skin a darker tone. I have only used this in the summer when I was sweating like crazy so I don’t know if it really lasts 24h. Who would want to wear cakey make up 24h anyways?

Revlon Colorstay Foundation

This is my Japanese alternative. It costs 20 bucks (2100¥). I usually don’t spend that much on makeup. The Artistry Make up costs more but it was a gift. The P2 foundation from Germany  was about 5€. But in Japan make up is expensive and I don’t really have a choice if when I run out of my lighter foundation. I tried quite a lot of foundations at the drug store and this one fit my skin tone perfectly. I really like this one even though the prize is whammy.  

P2 All in one Professional compact Foundation

This is my quick and easy kit when I don’t have time in the mornings or need to refresh my makeup. It’s okay, honestly. It is pretty thick and cakey so it’s not my first choice. But it’s great on the go.  



Decide to have a good day

I woke up this morning with a cold. I felt terrible and could only roll out of bed after throwing in some pain meds. I went to work and started worrying about today. And started to be upset because of my cold, and how much stuff is “on” today. And then I felt bothered because I started to forget what I was upset about. You know that feeling when something bothered you a few minutes ago and you can’t remember what? Yeah that’s me today. And then I decided: you know what, I can’t even remember what is bothering me but I know it’s something I can’t change anyway. So I will just enjoy my day. What do you loose from having a positive attitude? 

So I want to live today with a positive outlook. It makes things easier! It makes the hours of work bearable!

I hope you guys have a good day today! Be save and warm! The Sakura cherry blossoms are blooming in Okinawa! What a sight. But it’s raining lots, too! 

Kaldi’s Coffee *Mild Kaldi* Roast

 I’m back with the posts! I hope you guys are doing well and you got a good start into 2016! 

Let me introduce you to my new coffee blend: Mild Kaldi from the import store Kaldi’s Coffee Farm. If you live in Japan, like Coffee or crave the goods from your home country, this store is probably one of you favorites. I bought coffee there the other day for first time. They were serving this blend (Mild Kaldi) at the entrance of the store. I liked it so I went ahead and got a 200g bag. It cost about 450¥. I make Hario pour overs with it and add milk and caramel syrup. Yummy! 

TV Series: The flash

As I am watching Arrow, I got introduced to the Flash which has multiple crossovers with Arrow

The show is so good. I like it as much as Arrow. The main character Barry Allen is struck by lightning after a laboratory accident and goes into a nine month coma. He wakes up to a whole set of new abilities. Speed, high metabolism and the ability to heal quickly. Berry now lives a double life as CSI investigator and superhero, called the Streak or later on the Flash. 

If you like shows like Smallville or Arrow, check this one out to. It’s definately worth a watch.

A great find at a thrift store: Shopaholic takes Manhatten

 I went to a Japanese thrift store the other day and found this for 50¥. It’s the second book in the Shopaholic series. I already started the book! It’s so good! 

CT Ice Coffee from Kaldi’s Coffee

January!!! It’s actually cold today but my friend brought some iced coffee and I had to try it. It’s for restaurant use so it’s already sweetened. You can find it at Kaldi’s coffee farm for 200¥ if you would like to try it. It’s so good! One of the best ones I had so far. I put some milk in it. Mhmmmm!

Tv Series: Arrow

After watching Smallville I am now officially hooked on Superhero shows. I feel like I dove into DC without really considering how many good shows there are out there about super heroes that can get you hooked. Arrow is definately one of them. I just started it and it’s very entertaining. I’m excited to see how to the show evolves.

Arrow tells the story of Oliver Queen, a rich playboy, who after stranding on an uncharted island for 5 years, returns home as a changed man. Skilled in fighting and archery he now lives a double live as the returned son and heir of his family’s fortune and as a green hooded vigilante who avenges the wrongs done by white collar criminals in his city.
