As promised,thought i write about my roadtrip to Toi. For those of you who dislike travel posts, not to worry, scroll down for the makeup review bit XD
Now for those of you still reading about roadtrip, Toi is in Shizuoka. Yup i went on a roadtrip to Shizuoka a while ago but i only went to the eastern coast. This time, i decided to head to the western coast [towards mount fuji]
I love this gorgeous coastline.
Toi is famous for its mineral-rich water as well so you know i had to get myself a room with a private tub!
Its proper water from the onsen. I had no eczema on my arms for at least 2 days after soaking in these waters for a day.
Its a private tub on my balcony..but possibly not private enough for some people.
As you can see in my pic above..technically you are showering and soaking in public hahaha since the balcony isnt actually covered etc. You can see the carpark where i was standing to take photos of the coastline and of this place earlier on ^^
As you can guess by now, this place isnt your typical Ryokan, its not japanese traditional but built more like a beach resort. We call these pensions here. Dinner wasnt typically japanese kaiseki either..but good nonethless!
But after we got back, whilst the husband was watching TV , i started checking out the toiletries pack they gave
I really like this photo. Sadly my little point and shoot camera did no justice to the scenery. Will have to bug the husband for photos from the DSLR [i have one too! i am just too lazy to bring it out]
Yup..that black outline you see in the pic above..on the left..tats MOUNT FUJI
And if u havent figured it out
Yes i went back to the same restaurant hahahaha [its on the way home ok XD]
i love these little roadtrips. Too bad the weather is still really warm but once its get cool, i am going to be doing tons more of these! HAHA sorry to those who dislike travel posts.
But here’s a makeup review to make it better. Its semi-related though cos i actually bought this right before going on the trip. I finally finished using the Labello lipbalm i bought in Hong Kong so i thought it was time to try something new.
This was new in store [or maybe its not and i just never noticed XD] <– i checked the website. this arrived in stores around start of September!
Maybelline Baby Lips Spf20 Lip Balm
Price: 315yen [About USD$4]
The 4 types available
- love the packaging!
- scent isnt overpowering, quite nice really!
- long lasting, really does moisturize your lips
-none i can really think of right now XD
Last but not least [omg will this post EVER END?] , its 敬老の日 [Keirou no hi] Respect for the Aged Day.
So go thank your parents,grandparents and the eldery around you for all that they have done for you. ^^
