Country in Oregon

Hola, everyone!!
How is it going?
Why am I putting such a picture of me with messy hair style?
Because of this (picture below)!!
It was such a beautiful day today, so we drove out the country! It might not be something special to you guys, but it's something that I love so much. I still remember that I was super touched and amazed what I could see in country sides when I saw "the country side" for the first time. My 1st experience was in Australia, we were driving the country side where I could see nothing but blue and green in the morning and millions and billions of stars at night. For some reasons, I thought "ah, I came to a different country" for the 1st time in Australia after meeting many people and visiting several places. ahaha (we really can't see this view in Tokyo).
Look, Oregon's country side is pretty too!
Oregon gets rain almost all the time, so it looks really pretty and special when it's sunny!
Hope you had a great day!

Murder Mystery Dinner

Look !! Isn't this place so gorgeous?
Yes, my type of building. pfffff..
On our 1 1/2 year anniversary, we went to a really fun place for dinner.
Murder Mystery Dinner
(CAUTION : Spoiler alert!!)
I will try to share as little information as possible! hehe When we arrived there, there were many people who dressed up with retro & party themed dresses and clothes. Can you see them? At this point, nobody knew what was going to happen. The actors and actresses  invite us to join the murder mystery. Woooo!!
Some of us were chosen to be certain characters (1 character per table), but still, non of us knew anything. We got fake money, a book, a piece of paper, and a pen to solve this mystery murder event together as we have dinner. Here is some sneak peaks. heehee
The actors and customers did great performance. We got more information as the story went on. Therewere some points when all of us had to stand up and actually needed to go to get more information from people from other tables by using the fake money. I love mystery stories, so this really got my attention so much. However, it was kinda hard for me because I have never tried to solve mystery stories in English. Then, this happened... Guess what happened to me!!??
I paid too much attention for the story.
I asked people many questions.
I tried so hard to understand what was going on and what was written in the book.
I felt nothing but thirsty maybe because of the excitement & stress.

Did you guess what happened to me? The answer is ... Garfy ate all of his food AND my food! Well, he left a bit for me (the part of spaghetti which had meats on).. hmmm... hungry vegetarian!! (-_-) Please be careful if you go there with hungry people, your food will disappear! WOW, mystery! (-_-) 
You can use their stuff and they'll take this fun picture for you!
You can pick one location from multiple restaurant locations. It happens not only in Oregon but also many other states, so don't worry if you don't live in the US. Murder Mystery Dinner uses a part of a restaurant, so the quality of the building and the quality & variety of dinner are depending on the restaurant where you pick and where it happens. There are more than 1 theme, so you can go back there for a different theme!! Fun?
Unfortunately, our members couldn't get the correct answer. However, it was a memorable and enjoyable dinner ever! In my previous post, I wrote about how to have a creative dinner st home for your anniversary. If you got bored with that, I strongly recommend you Murder Mystery Dinner. You can have a romantic dinner with your partner, meet new people, spend a fun evening, and escape from reality. bahaha
Have a joyful day, everyone!

Lazy Day

I know you guys have one of these days when you really don't wanna do anything. Anything means anything.. like Nothing Nothing. You should just relax and let the day pass you smoothly. I know I have these days way more often than I should. However, especially when you just finished huge exams or papers, don't you just wanna sit and relax for awhile? Yup, today was the day for me.

Skin Care
On my lazy day, I just use a toner from L'OCCITANE which is seriously my favorite toner ever + a moisturizer from Clinique. I heard it's better to use skin care products from one brand, but my skin doesn't really like any other products from Clinique & I recently found that skin care products from L'OCCITANE are really good for my skin. For now, I'm fine with these products. hehe
I don't really go out on my lazy day, so I really don't wear make up. I try to have at least 1 day per week for No Make-up Day since wearing make-up is not really good for skin. If I really have to go out even on my No Make-up Day or lazy day, I go out without make-up or with minimal make-up. You can't really tell my make-up from this picture because of the light and camera, but I only do my eye brows and put fake eye lashes for these days.
Hair Care
Ahhh.. I am Okay with natural hair dryer for eco!!! (just let my hair dry without doing anything) BUT I wanna protect my hair and look goooood!! For these my selfish opinions about my hair, I use Jojoba oil. I wrote about this product before, click here to read more  → Ellips Hair Vitamin 
When I have to go out, I wear jeans. I don't look good with jeans but I have them (for just in case hahaha), so I take advantage of lazy days to wear jeans. I usually wear one of my room-wear at home. Wait, I don't know if you guys call these clothes "room-wear." They aren't pajamas. They are clothes that I wear at home. When I get home or when I hang out at home, I wear them.. If you know what I am talking about, please let me know how you call these clothes in the comment below.
I usually take a bath and watch Youtube. Recently, I started watching Japanese game shows. I really believe that Japanese game shows are the weirdest but the best. If you can understand Japanese language & humor, please please please watch Japanese comedies. If not, I'm sorry. You're missing out. ahaha
Very sometimes, I do mini-games. I'm not good at playing games, so I like very simple and short games. BUT since I have a very addictive personality, I avoid playing games. haha Anyhow, the latest one which I play is 2048. You just need to add numbers in a fun way. So if you like simple and short games, I recommend you to try this ^^ (look, I won!) I can do it, so you can do it too!
This is my lazy day!
I love lazy days, but at the same time, I am kinda scared of lazy days.
I'm already a lazy person, so it's easy to be lazy... I am scared that I will have a lazy day every single day from now on. Oh, I don't want that I don't want that I don't want that. haha

What do you do on your lazy day?
Do you have any recommendations for me to try on my lazy day?
Talk to you soon,
