The Body Shop : Tea Tree Face Mask

Recently, I have been using Tea Tree Face Mask from THE BODY SHOP.
Ever since I smelled and used the body shop's body butters, they got me. I am a huge fan.
So, when I found tea tree face mask from the body shop, I was exited.
A bit thicker
To be honest, I am not a huge fan of tea tree smell. It smells like grass, leaves, mints, ... it doesn't mean that it is a bad smell. Tea tree smell just doesn't suit me, I guess. BUT I enjoyed using this face mask.
How was it?:
Tea tree makes our skin to cool down instantly and lifts away impurities. It's great for our hot / warm skin during the summer. Our skin needs to cool down too!
But without knowing what tea tree does at the 1st time using tea tree product, I got scared. It's because my skin instantly started feeling super minty and I wasn't sure if my skin was feeling super hot or cold. (8_8") So, I read the package and did a little bit of research about tea tree. haha So, don't worry! If you thought the same way as I did, you are not alone. We're buddies. haha

How do I use it?

1. Wash your face
2. Dry your face with a clean towel
3. Take Tea Tree Face Mask a little by little

4. Apply Tea Tree Face Mask on your face
5. Avoid your eyes and around your eyes
I didn't do good job on this one. I touched my eye blow with the finger and realized I got a green dot on my eye blow. Because I didn't wanna take a pic of my face with a dot on my eye blow, I applied as closer as possible to the eye area. ha
6. Wait for 10 minutes (until it gets dry a little bit)
6.5. Enjoy your skin getting cool down rapidly yet gradually

(I totally look like an alien)
7. Wash off the face mask by cold water
It looks like some people just wipe it off by towels and stuff. Because I want my pores to get smaller and don't want them to keep the mask forever, I wash it off with cold water.
8. Follow your daily routine of beauty products

I use this product especially after having a lot of fun under the Sun.
Other than that, I am trying to use this twice a week at least.

Talk to you later

Outfit : White Lacy Tops

Last night, I went out for Italian restaurant and a new bar (*'U<*)b
My favorite tops for my entire life!
< Lace Lace Lace Chiffon Chiffon Chiffon >
I wasn't confident enough to wear sleeve less clothes because I didn't wanna show my arms. Then, in recent years, I have only found cute clothes without sleeves. It was a huge problem at first, but I finally gave up and decided to give it a try. Since a lot of people support "all kinds of body shapes are beautiful" in the US (in Oregon), I think I was more comfortable to make this decision than if I were in Japan.
As I said, this was one of the "cute clothes without sleeves." I felt like I just found a hidden treasure when I found this tops in tons of other clothes... haha

Are you guys ready?


Tops - White Lacy Chiffon Top from T j maxx
Bottoms - Black Stretchy Pants from H&M
Shoes - Black High Heels from DEB 

Since the top was girlish, I wore a bit more casual and boyish stuff than the top for rest of my outfit this time
. Hm... not that bad. I think I am enjoying trying this on! Isn't it the most important thing? ; fashion is supposed to make you happy and help to enjoy the time, right? I guess I overcame my fear of showing my arms a little bit. haha

I love the balance of a little girly and a little boyish.
I also love the combination of black and white.

Here is the close up for my favorite part!!
Lacy Lacy Lacy
A lot of flowers around my neck too. (*-U-*)

Give at least 1 chance to your dream outfit!
Enjoy rocking it!!
I'm sure you look really great in it.

Outdoor Wedding: L&C

I thought I just wrote about a wedding. "Am I reading a same post?" No no!! Hold on, there! I was super lucky enough to attend to a wedding of one of Garfy's best friend from a high school. But I forgot to post this blog page, so it's been more than a month since that day. LOL
Then I thought that "Seriously, none of weddings is the same". The wedding was outside at a bride's parents' place. I was amazed to see how they turned the backyard into a gorgeous wedding place. In Japan, I don't think it's common to see a hand made wedding. Well, at least, I have never seen or heard such things like this. When I think of wedding, people pick one of the locations such as: churches, temples, and shrines in Japan. Then, they hire people to prepare for their ideal wedding. But, this wedding was nothing like I expected. Almost all of them were hand made. Signs, Photo booth, Presents of jam, Decorations, Flowers, and many more!! All the dishes were antique / pretty dishes, and every dish was different.

It was another gorgeous wedding that I luckily attended to. Garfy and I couldn't stop talking about how perfect the wedding was for at least 2 weeks after the wedding day.
Congratulations to beautiful bride gloom!!
Cheers to their happiness!
