Little Moments

This is the busiest time for my industry, and man can I feel it. Not even New Years makes much of a dent in my schedule. However, there is always time for life's little pleasures... especially if they are cheap or free!

I got a gig doing some hair modeling in Ginza. Just walking to the salon was a breath of fresh air, looking at all the roads and buildings decorated for Christmas, glittering in the dark. I was a bit apprehensive, but fortunately the salon wanted shots of rather elegant styles. My hair turned out wonderfully poofy, the perm brought back to life! The stylist also gave me one of those wonderful head massages, and I was close to passing out, out of sheer happy.

Banks in Japan give their clients little gifts (perhaps to placate our annoyance at the ridiculously low interest returns?). In my case, I got some onset bath salts. So relaxing, and they make skin wonderfully soft. I'm saving the last one for February, when my desire to run away to Okinawa to escape the cold will be at it's strongest.

And finally, pumpkin pudding ice cream. So, so delicious.


  1. i've never had pumpkin pudding icecream but i saw this lady selling it in my neighbourhood super! :)

    p.s. i love your new hair!!

  2. Thank you!
    I really recommend the ice cream, it isn't too sweet, and the caramel sauce balances so well. Yum!

  3. Pumpkin pudding! I'll have to go and buy some of that soon~
    Ganbatte and I hope you have a good new year!!!

  4. 開けおめ!
    I also recommend the matcha cookies and cream!

  5. Nice! That model gig sounds like it was a lot of fun ^w^) And your hair looks really cute!

    That Okinawa bath salt sounds like.. heaven. I need some D: I only have that bath roman stuff..

  6. I think it's great that the banks try to make up for their low interest returns! Haha! xP
