A new year is here (soon, its only 31st in Sweden still).
In Japan you greet your friends and family before the new year with
Yoi otoshi o
(I wish you a good new year)
When its the new year you greet people with
Akemashite omedetou gozimasu
(Have a good new year)

Happy new year everybody!
Its about 30 minutes until Christmas (the 24th is when Swedish people celebrate).
Its green outside and I havnt got much holidayfeeling, so guess my joy when I found this in the city!
I took the Sakura taste (Cherry blossom). It was sweet, cold and yummy!
With that I wish you all a very beautiful holiday☆
So, what is my love.. except for fashion, Tokyo, socks, makeup and so om?!?! NAILS!
And now when its soon to be christmas, why not spice it up and build a snowman 😉
This is what I used:
Nailpolish Mika (Black) MakeupStore
Nailpolish Latina Red from IsaDora
Nailpolish White from ZTIZ
And dont miss this little tool!
You get it in most drugstores!
I git myself an early xmas gift today!
From me, to me!
It was like opening a bag of candy, with gold, blue and sparkeling purple wrapping!
Inside, jewlery.. a girls best friend!☆
She is a designer from Düsseldorf, Germany and she had come to study design in Tokyo.
I watched her make jewlery then and I saw she had something special, with her designs and materials.
Her website finally opened just recent and I had to order!
The necklace and earrings are from her Approximation serie!
Necklace : Ni Leaf
Earrings: A Flower
(Both made in polyamide)
The ring, New Nomad Nugget ring is goldplated steel and there are 3 different sizes and figures.
Please go in on her webshop http://www.maryvonnewellen.com and look at all her beautiful designs. Maybe you still can get something for christmas 😉
Geta? Tabi? Zori?
Me, I love the Geta-style footwear, because of the wood but also the style, both traditionally and fashion.
Here is some info about them:
This is used for protecting your feet, from water etc on the ground. Its for practically use and woman have oval forms and men have rectangular.
This ones have higher teeths
and are practical when going to the market and dont want to get dirty on your feet from the water etc. (My personal favourites)
These are used mostely of geisha-in-training, also called maiko. The red stripes mean that she is a newbi. 😉
This is slightly more formal and are used when dressed in a kimono. Geta-styles is used dressed in yukata (which is a summerwear).
This is socks that separate your big toe from the other 4. These are seen beeing used with all these traditional footwear. (And also makes it much more comfy I might add 😉 )
These are like the Tabi socks, but with rubber soles. This is used as a regulare shoe. (I’ve got a pair Of converse made in Jika-tabi). Love them and they are not so uncomfy as they might appear.
Snow, beautiful snow❗️
My favourite time of year is spring (cherryblossoms and hanamiparties) but when snow covers everything in its white sparkeling coat, I feel like beeing in a magical world.
Even better is if you have some shoes that leaves cute marks when you walk,
like these I got from my favourite (oh well, ONE of my favourite shops) at Cat Street in Harajuku!
These ones leave this pretty marks in the snow:
If you go to Tokyo, look up Tokyo Bopper at Cat Street in Harajuku.
You can walk from Shibuya to Harajuku and see all the beautiful little shops at Cat Street!
