This sequinned T-shirt dress by Badgley Mischka is gorgeous! The sequins are so perfect for night, but the T-Shirt cut makes it just casual enough to make it wearable during the day. Even if it may not be appropriate for a wedding I'd love to purchase it.... But doesn't buying anything with sequins on it online terrify you because you have no idea quite how shiny and sparkly it will be.

All the things we want each other to be, we'll never be.
We'll never be
And that's wonderful
And that's life
All that we can do is try and I say we are all trying desperately to please you
We quit doing things for you
We will do try doing things our own way and create our own success

You can't stop and start life the way you see fit
You only have one chance
So take it and choreograph your own dance
Do the things that you enjoy
Be straight, be true, don't live life with a hidden ploy
Because before you know it
Time has passed. Gone by so fast there's no looking back
And everything goes black
Thank you for reminding us how precious life is.
I won't let your absence be in vain. And I promise I'll make your proud

John and I left for Phuket on the 10th of June and we got back on the 15th! It was definitely too short a trip but we had such a beautiful time. I think I love the place even more now as an adult than I did when I was child... when quite frankly I didn't really think about culture, and the people....
Now that we have been there together we really cannot wait until our wedding there next year!
The pic is of my food from the seller on the bike. My last lunch eaten on the beach! Lovely!

Birthday bash part one... April 19th. @yakiniku buchi, shibuya :)
Just celebrated my 25th birthday and this year I decided to have a little bday dinner with friends from different fields! It was so much fun ;) we were about thirty ppl, taking up about 2/3 of the yakiniku restaurant!
I felt so so so loved:) hehe
John and I caught the last train and then spent loads of time opening presents and I loved all of them :)
I even ended up crying a few times, reading peoples cards and just feeling the warmth that surrounds me:)
Thank you to all with the warm warm wishes :) I couldn't ask for better people to spend it with :)

Though when you read the news or hear stories from others sometimes you forget this! I certainly do...
But I realized recently went I dropped my phone that Japanese people can and do care about strangers.
Since i arrived in Japan almost seven years ago I have dropped my teiki (fully charged transport credit which can be used for 6 months), my phone, and my wallet - yes this says a lot about me... But all these items have been delivered to the police or the lost and found with not a single thing missing. I think it's heartwarming.
And i'm so grateful for that person who did the good deed as there are so many times like when I'm being pushed around on a train aggressively that I forget that we are as a population generally considerate and kind!
So yes.... Thanks to the person who delivered my phone to the lost and found yesterday!!! For delivering it... But also renewing my faith in us :)

My sister is 19 years old today. I feel so old. I remember being 19 as though it was yesterday. Celebrating with new friends in a new country. Beginning of a brand new chapter and all the rest of it.
It might snow tomorrow?!!! What is going on? It is the middle of April... Where is spring? The cherry blossoms have already fallen. Ironically, this is global warming. It is freezing.

Staff mtg from eleven to two. Lunch for an hour. Staff mtg part two from three to four. Individual mtgs from four to seven. Then went to the store to check on everything - stayed until it closed :) I am so beyond tired that I've gone a little crazy.
But days like today, I realize why I like doing what I do. The work is impossibly hard a times but we have a good team and i have faith that we will be able to create results! Hopefully it will happen this month... My neck is on the line!

Ikumi, Rina, Hiroko, and me(I)
Wired Cafe is a popular spot for young people in Tokyo! They have delicious Hawaiian-esque food! We went to the one in Mitsukoshi, shinjuku! It's afforadable and the drinks are gorgeous! A definite must for young folks:) I am still borderline young enough!

April 9th. Was a tonne of fun talking fashion, family and boys, haha. Went to Harajuku and checked out Kitson, Topshop, H&M and the back streets of Omotesando!
Found nothing that I listed below... And decided that maybe maxi dresses are not for me! Hehe
Makes me look so small doesn't it? Like a tiny Japanese girl - something I am not so accustomed to! I think I will stick to minis! Still on the look out for a nice romantic white top and spring leather jacket! Keep me posted! :)

- Maxi Dress (which is better? flower print? or black? Floral is on trend, but black is SO much easier to wear... especially since I bought these red Diesel Black Gold sandals!)

Today John and I went watch Sherlock Holmes (yes, films open very late in Japan!) the new film by Guy Ritchie....
And it was incredible! I didn't expect that it was going to be anything special, but I was really quite impressed with the way it was filmed and it's story telling. There was not one boring moment. I knew Robert Downing Jr. would do a good job as he usually is quite phenomenal in everything he does, but I was also pleasantly surprised with Jude Law!
I'm not going to write about the story here as I don't want to ruin it for anyone, but watch the trailer, (http://trailers.apple.com/)and go see the movie if you haven't already, and it is still out in your movie theatre.
I really enjoyed Hans Zimmer's input once again, and I can't wait till the next one!
