::smoothie for breakfast::

smoothie season is here!!
I finally got this solo blender to serve myself smoothie for breakfast.
(I had a food processor but it was too big to make smoothie for one person.)

Solo blender "Sante" by Recolte
They also have it in beige, green and orange.
My very first was blueberry banana yogurt smoothie on top↑

I have a huge package of grained flaxseed in my freezer.
This is really good for your stomach with plenty of fiber.

I blended it with my avocado banana smoothie on the other day.
it was really good and make you really full.

I need to learn more recipes :)

::Mt. Takao part 2::

So we were top of Mt. Takao....
After a good exercise.....

good food......!!
(exercise + good food = zero....)

the height of this point is 599.03m

goma dango
(rice cake on sticks with sesame)


People come here o eat this.
Buckwheat noodle with grated yam.

Coffee tastes much better in fresh air.

I was totally relaxed and not ready for camera.

I know I should've walked....
but we bought round trip tickets for the lift.

I want to go there again before weather gets too hot.

::Mt. Takao part 1::

The weather was really warm and nice last Sunday.
I got up at 6 in the morning and left my place at 7 to avoid crazy traffic.
We went to see the view from the top of Mt. Takao.

As you can see....
We didn't hike the all way upthere...
We took 12 mins ride of this in the woods.

Mt. Takao has a huge forrest of Japanese cedars. 
This guy is about 450 years old and has roots like octopus.

To get to the shrine on top of this mountain,
you have to go up soooo many stairs...
good exercise!

The view from the top :)
There is Mt. Fuji showing.

When we got there, monks were singing Heart Sutra in a main shrine.
We just sat there and listen.
It was a good heart cleanse.

to be continued to part 2....

::balloon party::

My friend who lives just about 15 mins away from my place invited me to 
a balloon party at her house.
She ordered 500 balloons for this! 
It was so much more fun than I expected :)

The weather was so nice that I finally got to wear this pink leather jacket.
Spring has come!

A professional cook prepared tasty food on the table.

All the grown-ups were playing with those balloons like kids.
Thank you all for a fun night!

blue jeans are good way to start the spring wardrobe
These J-Brand jeans stretches perfectly!

ankle length is my favorite length
looks great with pumps, boots, wedges, sandals, sneakers....all kinds of shoes.

Being inspired by this look....

this skirt by Zara caught my eyes :)
I love this painting pattern.
They also have similar styles in different patterns.

You can find variety of pleated items everywhere.

Can't wait to wear it on weekends!

Thank you for reading.

:: big skirts::

The show window of FOXEY in Ginza, Tokyo.
This photo was taken one-two years ago.
FOXEY is still too sophisticated for me... but I love their elegant styles.

I see a lot of fashionistas wearing huge skirts on the street (on their blogs...)
and I started dreaming about it...

gorgeous dress by Dior.

Which skirt do you like the best? 
Which one would you wear?

::breakfast date on sunday::

the great breakfast place specializing in organic eggs in Roppongi Hills, Tokyo

They open at 8 am on weekends.
My bff works till late everyday and it's been difficult for us to make time to hang out after work.
We tried meeting up for breakfast before she goes to work :)

We ordered the exact same thing this time.
"start of a nice day" plate that they serve only in the morning.
their original english muffin with peanut butter.

and a jar of fruit granola and acai :)

such a nutritious breakfast with warm coffee....

Time seems to pass really slow here.
It was a great start of Sunday and we decided to do this once or twice a month :D

It feels really nice!
I want to try their eggs benedict next time☆

Thanks for reading!
