Up and Down #23: May 2012

Summer is here!  At least it feels like it. The high temperature here is now 30 C (86 F)!!

On to my Ups and Downs!


I bought a DSLR!  

 NY was the best place for me to play with my new DSLR. I lived in NY when I was little. I don’t need any new pictures, which means I can screw up on my DSLR all I want! At the same time, NY has so many interesting places that I was constantly taking pictures.

I saw Book of Mormon on Broadway! 

It was hilarious! It won 9 Tony Awards and tickets are impossible to book – they usually need to be booked 6 months in advance. I booked the tickets first and then booked my flight to match the date!  I have been listening to the soundtrack constantly!
Also, it makes fun of organized religion in general, so don’t see it if you are sensitive to that.

Suave Dry Shampoo

Dry shampoo doesn’t exist in Japan since most people wash their hair every day. I tried this after reading about it on some beauty blogs, and I loved what it did to my hair!  I had more volume and it was easier to style my hair!!
Unfortunately, I couldn’t bring this home with me. TSA prohibits aerosol on an airplane!

L’Oreal Infallible eyeshadow in Iced Latte
My morning routine has become so easy thanks to this eyeshadow! It’s a nice beige color and it is easy to apply. I’m sure I’ll go back to doing complicated eye looks soon, but for now, this is my love!
Fresh fruits and vegetables
I mentioned before that I had trouble finding fresh produce in the winter. Thanks to the warm weather, now I can find everything! I eat fresh lychees, mangoes, and peaches all the time!
Not living in New York
Every time I go to New York, I want to stay for the rest of my life.  Someday…
How has your spring been?
