Colorful + Fun + Trendy = Color pop! 
I choose #06 Bunny Pop 'cause it has the most natural color on my lips and really perfect on my baby make up style!!!

- Long lasting!!! 
- Smell goods
- Doesn't make your lips dry.. 
Cons :

Dreams ☆ Wishes ☆ Reality

"Who says that my dreams have to just stay my dreams?" - Ariel, The Little Mermaid

Hello readers ♥︎ I see that we've been updating irregularly and rarely too and we deeply apologise for that m(_ _)m 

Okay this post won't be related to beauty at all, instead I want to tell you a short story (^O^)

Some of you might know that I want to become a fashion designer. I plan to continue my study in Japan (・ω・)ノ I want to go to Bunka, Tokyo but before that I need to study Japanese first. At first I think that I'd go to a Japanese language school in Osaka but yesterday, at my school's education fair, an agent reccommended me to go to a language school in Tokyo instead called Meros that is located in Ikebukuro. 

I was super duper excited knowing the location of the campus, I mean Ikebukuro is like where DRRR!! was set ♥︎ So the good news is like a spring breeze to me and knowing that the school is specialized for students who wants to go to an art related universities or colleges I feel I can rest at ease for this school probs (。-_-。)

Honestly, being in my last year of high school is really tiring. Us seniors need to find colleges or universtities to attend to and we're going to face some serious problems called the national exams, midterms, and other tests from our school. 

Last week I just finished doing all of the midterm tests and just yesterday got the mid term report. I failed at religion study and biology orz but the rest are okay.

And this week until the next 2 or 3 weeks I'll be busy practising Balinese Traditional Dance for the school's art show. Plus I have to study Japanese on weekends too and it's not as easy as I assumed ε-(´∀`; )

Anyway all these things that's been going around in my life, preparing for everything and stuff is really challenging and I like that. I feel like I'm making some progress here while learning something as well in order to reach my dreams. So readers, wish me luck on my next upcoming exams :)

I don't want to lead a boring ordinary life, and even though it may be difficult but I really want to make my dreams turn into reality (♯`∧´)


Last but not least selfies wearing my fave pjs @(・●・)@ 

Wishing you all the luck in the world

NAÏVE Green Tea Facial Cleansing Foam by Kracie

Hello! Some of my friends at school have been asking me how to have a smooth and clean facial skin so I decided to reveal my secret here ♥︎ 

I actually have a combination skin type. My T-zone is oily while my U-zone's, well, normal (u_u) 

So you must've noticed that previously I used BIORE but ever since it ran out, I changed it into NAÏVE Green Tea Facial Cleansing Foam by Kracie (´・Д・)」



The soap-paste is quite solid compared to other facial soap (・ω・)ノ



You only need 1cm-long facial-paste to have your face cleaned thoroughly (^O^)




The soap is easily cleaned out with water and they leave a 'fresh' feeling after. Not to forget the soap smells great (⌒▽⌒)

It's more expensive than biore though. I got them at Papaya : Fresh Gallery (=゚ω゚)ノ but the price is worth it :D

Pros
1. Thoroughly clean your face
2. Great smell
3. Almost-solid paste
4. Easy to be cleaned up
5. Reduce oil (very much) so it's good for controlling oily skin

Cons
1. Expensive

I personally love the product (=゚ω゚)ノ♥︎ There are also other facial foam by kracie for another skin type, but I never really got the chance to try them :)

xoxo,

momiji
