I hope everyone is enjoying summer! It’s getting super hot here, but I heard that Tokyo is even hotter… 35 degrees C (95 degrees F)! Tokyo is usually hottest during August… so does this mean it’s going to get even hotter?
Because of the nuclear incidents, I’ve heard that many companies in Japan have switched to a Tuesday-Saturday or Wednesday-Sunday work week, to reduce energy consumption on weekdays. Many people are doing their best not to use air conditioning, or to set their A/C much higher than they usually do. What a difficult task when it’s so hot!!
On to my Ups & Downs!
– L’Oreal Voluminous Million Lashes (review coming up!)
This was part of my haul from Hawaii. I’ve really loved most of the products I bought in that haul!
– Chanel Rouge Allure lipstick in Nude + Gosh lipstick in Darling
Even though it is called Nude, the Chanel lipstick is very coral. Layering Gosh Darling on top gives me a great everyday milky nude lip color which doesn’t wash me out.
The Chanel picture is from Sept 2009, and the Gosh picture is from Oct 2010. At least my lighting skills have improved!
– Meeting up with Lulu!
– Eating lots of fruit, such as watermelon, lychee, mangoes, mangosteens, etc!
– Not getting to play on my Wii Fit as much as I would like. I need to get back in the habit of doing this.
It’s time for A Piece of Me in July 2011.
I like: being on Week 6 of the Couch to 5k!!! Woohoo!!! Now I can run 20 min without stopping!!
I don’t like: that I need to wake up at 6 AM on the weekends to run before it gets hot.
I want you to know: that I’m really, really trying to lose weight… how do I keep at it??
I’ve planned: to go back to Japan this month!
