25 January is Japanese Beauty Day

It is birthday of Ms. May Ushiyama, the founder of my beauty salon – Hollywood Beauty Salon.

She greatly contributed development of Japanese beauty industry; therefore, in 2013, her birthday, 25 January, is registered as Japanese beauty day.

I went to spa today and received one stem of rose.

The company organized the event on the 7th Floor so that I paid a visit.

I was welcomed with a plate of high tea and received a goody bag with spa’s tabloids, memo pad and May Ushiyama’s book titled Road to Happiness.

Her beauticians still respects her and highly talk about her.

According to the introduction, she describes her philosophy to become happy.

She was dynamic so I should be able to learn something from her/this book.

Starbucks Rewards Voucher

Dad gave me Starbucks Rewards Voucher worth JPY 700 (USD 7).

I went to Starbucks to buy seasonal Valentine coffee beans, Guatemala Casi Cielo – Bright with a Smooth Cocoa Finish.

According to a staff, it is light comparing to Starbucks Pike Place with a slight chocolate flavor.

I cannot wait to try it!

I will serve it to you too, Dad.

Love CHANEL

I went to CHANEL counter at Takashimaya Nihonbashi Main Store to get cosmetics that I ran out.

These are Highlighting Powder and Eyebrow Gel.

My weakness is I cannot refuse Limited Edition.

I missed Limited Collection for Christmas so I asked is there anything for New Year.

There are few items to be introduced on 3 January 2020; new and limited for this time only.

I reserved few items to be picked up after 3 January 2020. hahaha

There is an invitation to become a friend with CHANEL on LINE app.

I registered immediately so that I can get the latest product information!

Now I can avoid missing getting new products.

I don’t know it’s a good move or not. hahaha

Toraya @ Tokyo Midtown Roppongi

I went to Toraya to look for Japanese traditional confectionery to host my Singaporean friends for lunch on Sunday.

The shop sells their confectioneries at one counter and exhibits history of their confectionery based on theme.

This time, tray.

I like this flower tray among them.

Yes, we image to use Japanese designed tray for Japanese food.

However, the exhibition is introducing these trays can be used for Western food as well.

I bought dessert for lunch from there and it came with seasonal limited edition of Origami (folding paper) edition paper bag.

So cute!

I bought these.

Next year is year of Rat.

Rat designed Yokan (sweet bean jelly) and Monaka (sweet bean puff).

I like them and hope they did, too.
