Adorable kitty face printed on box and case, cat paw puff sponge, cat silhouette pressed on the powder, and tiny foot prints are in the box!
Of course the powder works good.
The powder case is re-useable for their basic pressed powder.

SENDAGI walk 2:C.A.G.


C.A.G. is a hat shop where your friend Gris (a nickname) both designs and hand-manufactures hats. Her hats are sold at fine retailers such as Shinjuku ISETAN MEN’S and even Barneys New York GINZA.


Since she originally worked for an advertising agency, she is sensitive to the latest trends and movements around the world.


She is very stylish, and it is fun to go chat with her in her shop.


YEBISU GARDEN PLACE Winter Illuminations


The other day, I went to YEBISU GARDEN PLACE with a friend.


All the trees were lit up, creating truly magical scenery.



A huge Baccarat chandelier was displayed in the center of the square.


The chandelier was amazing, giving the impression that it was floating in the air.
