Ladies (and gentlemen too!), there’s no more excuse not to take care of ourselves.
True, sometimes we don’t even have that 5 minutes to properly remove make up (or even put on make up in the first place) and apply that one moisturizer. Not to mention a good face massage. I know that all too well. I once often accidentally brushed my teeth with face wash when everything was a blur juggling two kids under two.
But Japanese technology is here to help. Having one of the busiest lifestyles in the world, the latest beauty trend in Japan is a simplified, convenient beauty regime. read more
Here’s a pretty rare cosmetic review, and today I’m introducing a Japanese brand (of course) – Chacott for Professionals.
Chacott was founded in Japan since 1950, so the history dates waaaaay back. Let me straight up tell you why this brand is so unique – Chacott prides itself in its non-chemical, highly safe ingredients that it is suitable even for children.
Wait what?? Children wear make up???
Yes. Pick your jaw up from the ground now and let’s look at the background of the brand and you will understand why. read more
I believe that flowers of the nature have immense healing power. Some of the most popular “Instagenic” photos are of beautiful full blooms of a myriads of different floral tones from all over the world, of different seasons.
I chanced upon a cherry blossom full bloom in 2012 and I was so overwhelmed by the beauty of it I was secretly tearing. After that I made a promise to myself to return to Japan to witness this every year.Continue reading
In Japan, other than Konmari method which is all the hype now, Danshari (断捨離) is also trending at the moment – it is pretty much the same, to declutter and simplify your home and life, keeping only things that you really need and bring joy to you.

For my bathroom, the latest addition is Ahalo Butter, a very popular made-in-Japan hair & body care range that is so pretty it gives your bathroom a beautiful cottage garden vibe. read more

Many have asked me what I do with @cheesiepetits during my free time. Ideally I would love to bring them travel as much as possible to see the world and gain different experience, but since Junya started his new school now we are mostly limited to home activities and a walk at the park nearby.Continue reading
It’s 2019! Here’s a little recount of events of my journey with Cheesiepetit of the entire year of 2018. I spent one whole day scrolling through the photos feeling all nostalgic. They have grown so much in just one year! (Take note of Junya and Sakura’s hair hahaha.) Also, can you believe it? I have over 50,000 photos and videos stored in my phone!!Continue reading
The theme for the second half of 2018 and continuing into 2019 for me, is “Love Myself”.
You can’t pour from an empty cup. I know it’s true. There were some really dark moments earlier this year that rendered me incapable of feeling any sort of joy. I felt unloved from the world and I wasn’t capable of giving any either. I knew I couldn’t let it consume my whole soul, and slowly I tried to climb my way out of it.Continue reading
I can’t even remember the last time I went for an aesthetic procedure or even a facial at a beauty salon. It must have been 5 years ago. Because after that I was either pregnant or breastfeeding and these things were pretty much out of my life.Continue reading
