Picnic in the Park.

Even though it's still February (just) it's getting warm enough to sit outside in the park. So I went for a picnic with my boyfriend. I wore my new trousers from Zara which are soooo comfy. And they have brown leather braces! What more can a girl want?

Not a bad spread hey? We had lots of meat, bread, olives, cheese, salsa and chips and chu hi and beer. All in all a very good Sunday!

Trousers, denim button down, shoes, cardigan: Zara. Jacket: H&M. Sunglasses: Target.

Yep, a nearly all Zara outfit, haha!

Dancing in my PJs.

Spent the day dancing around the house in my PJs to my favourite music and clearing out my closet. I've just realised I've hardly eaten today though so gonna pop some outdoor clothes on and run to the supermarket. I'm thinking chicken stew for dinner. Hopefully if the weather stays nice and my boyfriend feels up to it we're off on a picnic tomorrow. How's your weekend going?

Friday Night.

My man's off snowboarding this weekend but I can't go due to being ill so we went to the supermarket to get him some supplies for the overnight bus. Also weirded out the local Japanese people by taking photos in front of curry sauce and such. The rest of my night included going to dinner and have just finished drawing hot dogs and hamburgers and such on paper plates for my lesson tomorrow. How was your night? Anyhoo here's what I wore this evening.

Jeans: Topshop, vest topand necklace: H&M, leather jacket, black cardigan and faux fur vest: Zara, boots Sam Edelman (from nastygal), bracelets: present from Tom's parents, shield ring: nasty gal, thumb ring: present from my Mum, red heart ring: Vivienne Westwood (present form Tom).

Just A Quickie.

Here's what I wore for Valentine's dinner. Had to change my outfit due to major snowage and only had 15 minutes to get ready!

Oh yeh, I was totally unintentionally man repelling at work the other day. New black harem-esque pants with brown leather braces and elasticated cuffs, sheer zebra print shirt and my boyfriend's winter knit cardigan! I'll have to get some pictures up soon!

Primark jeans, Zara fake fur, Zara shirt, H&M necklace, Nasty Gal boots (not seen).

Happy Valentine's!

How are we all doing today?! I was snowboarding over the weekend so still a little bit stiff! Today in Osaka it is snowing, which it never does! So I think I might be doing so major man repelling at dinner tonight just to keep warm, haha! Maybe a romantic dress with layers and sensible shoes?
Here are some pictures of what I want to be wearing to dinner tonight but probably can't.

Right, I need to jump in the shower before I go out!

One swallow does not make a spring, nor does one fine day.

I feel the need for a new tattoo. I want one on my wrist and I've wanted a swallow tattoo for ages as I love the history behind them. So I'm thinking a swallow on my wrist. But still not sure. I often take a long time before I definitely decide to get a new tattoo. I currently have four and don't regret a single one! Here are some cute tattoo pictures. I wouldn't get colour though. It's just a personal choice but I don't think colour tattoos would suit me.

Although I may get some text...hmmm....I also want a tattoo on the upper part of my forearm like this

And I also want one on the inside of my bicep like this

Due to living in Japan though tattoos are a definite taboo, especially as I'm a teacher. Most of my kids have spied my lower back tattoo due to reaching up for the screen but I try to hide them as much as possible so a wrist tattoo might be a bit much! Ah we'll have to see. Once the idea of a new tattoo gets a hold of me I really can't let it go!

It's Like Christmas!

My Nasty Gal package has arrived! And due to buying over the knee boots it was huge! :D And everything in it is amazing! The boots are just what I've wanted for ages, the ring is fabulous and the dress is so comfy. Altho might need to invest in some tit tape if I wear it like the model does in the post below! I'll try to get some pics up soon but am off snowboarding on Saturday and working Sunday so may have to wait a bit, sorry! Hope you are all well! I'm off to make lunch and go to bed as I have no life when I'm working, heh.
