FOTD #35 | Sakura eyeshadow look for enjoying the cherry blossom in Tokyo/ 花見メイク

So where have I been? Well as I mentioned in my last post I was off to Thailand, and three days into my trip both my camera and phone got stolen (full moon party, was a bit drunk and should've been keeping a better eye out for pickpockets) - hence the lack of blogging! I then spent a bit of time without a phone, which was extremely traumatic for me and I will probably need counselling for the experience in later life. However, now all the various deities (my parents) have blessed me with an iPhone 6 which actually takes better quality photos than my previous camera did, so I'll now be taking blog pics with my phone til my travel insurance gets sorted.

After Thailand my parents visited me in Japan and we went to Hakone, Kyoto and Nara so I have pictures from all of those to blog about, look out for more travel posts! Anyways this is a look I did for doing hanami (flower viewing, i.e going to see the cherry blossom) yesterday with some friends. The sakura are only out for about a week and Tokyo is gloriously warm by British standards (only just April but able to go out with bare legs) so we went out to enjoy the views in the park. People often go in big groups and have a picnic and get drunk, but there are also lots of couples who go for hanami dates which I totally get as being surrounded by cherry blossom trees (and the falling petals) is uber romantic. Hope everyone is enjoying Spring wherever you are! xx

Ah your make up looks super pretty. Sorry to hear that about your phone/camera! On the plus side, at least you have a nice fancy iPhone 6 - I really want to upgrade but not sure whether to hold out until the next apple instalment! So lovely that your parents got to visit you. Is the sakura still about now? Lots of bloggers seem to be over there now visiting.

Sorry about your phone!
Your makeup looks perfect, and I'm so so jealous of your life in Japan. Literally biggest dream of my life to live in Tokyo. New follower :)

Thank you! The sakura is still out but I think maybe for only another 5 days or so? It's very fleeting so the parks are all absolutely packed everyday with people trying to enjoy them! xx

Ikr, we don't really have an equivalent for appreciating a seasonal flower in the UK! xx

Thanks for your comment! xx

Thank you! And if you want to live in Tokyo definitely look at doing a language course here for a few months or coming to teach, I think those are the easiest ways to move here quickly ^^ xx

Georgie said...

It really is gorgeous at the moment! xx
