Weekend getaway to Karuizawa

Recently, me and the husband visited Karuizawa.

Karuizawa (θ»½δΊ•ζ²’) is a town in Kitasaku District, Nagano, Japan.
Its about 1.5hrs drive from Tokyo or slightly over 1 hour via Shinkansen [bullet train] from Tokyo.
As the town is amongst high altitudes, the weather there is usually cool even in summer.

We dropped into the main part of town [Karuizawa Ginza]

I wasnt sure how to post a photo of my phone since i take the photos for the memes with my phone XD So here’s the phone cover instead. Yes i know a lot of the crystals have fallen off XD i intend to replace my phone cover soon.
Here’s a grainy pic taken by my ipad of the stuff hanging off the phone

Wallet from Chanel. My sister bought this for me for my birthday last year when she went Europe for a holiday. My sister is awesome, isnt she? I know.

3. Something in your wallet [cards/coins/money/whatever]

I kinda cheated. Most of these cards reside in my card case rather than my wallet. XD
This is just a small selection of the numerous point/store cards i own. As you can see, most of them are from drugstores XD

4. Makeup you carry on the go

Revlon lip butter – in pink truffle
MAC blotting powder – previously shown in a different photo meme XD

5. Whatever else you wish to share from your bag πŸ˜€

I am a girl in love with the paper medium. i dont care that i can use the calendar on my phone or that i can take notes on my phone. I still like using a proper book and pen.
