Pink & Beige in Japan!

Dear Beautiful!

I hope you are doing great. Maybe you are enjoying the beautiful season with a loved one or sitting at a lovely café with view to all the flower blossoms!

Japanese girls/women love the two colors beige and pink. When you e.g enter a train, and sitting and watching all the beautiful ladies, the basic colors in their outfits are beige and pink. It looks very lovely and classic. Also their nails are often painted in soft pale pink and beige colors and sometimes with small motives.

In Japan, the color pink symbolizes good health and life. Pink in Japan is also strongly associated with cherry blossom and spring, and this has some masculine associations as the cherry blossoms (sakura) are said to represent the young Samurai who fell in the battle in the prime of their life. Pink also represents pure love, childish innocence, purity (for example, a girl who is virgin in body and heart) and cuteness. The color pink in the Japanese language is ピンク(pinku). It is a relative new word for Japanese. Before it was called momo-iro (peach-color).

A popularly blogger for the Japanese fashion magazine, 25 ans, is Aki Weng. If you check her Instagram, @akinyc you will see that her basic color is pink!! Another interesting Japanese blogger, and cloth designer is @akiki_2015 (below pictures are from her blog).

Stay Lovely,

My Kind of Evening

Mmm…I love cinnamon rolls. In Japan it is difficult to find really juicy and lovely cinnamon rolls. Therefore I often make them by myself. Tonight I made these lovely ones. Recipe is created by the Danish pastry chef, Mette Blomsterberg.

Japanese Luxury

Dear Beautiful,

I hope you are having a cozy season.

Yesterday, I past by an article about how to stay relaxed and cozy in winter in Japan. The article mentioned 6 different kind of hot springs (onsen). One particalur looked so lovely. It was located in the midst of nature.

If you are not living in Japan, and come to Japan, it is such a lovely and extraordinary experience to stay at a Japanese hotel (ryokan) with onsen.

The onsen tradition dates back thousands of years and Japanese culture embraces it as both a luxury and daily necessity. 

The onsen water is rich in minerals, appreciated for its “qi” (energy) properties that have been absorbed from the surrounding nature, and especially beneficial to well being and health.

Happy December!

Oh, these truffles looks so tempting.

Next week is my Christmas Shopping week. My Japanese class has stopped for a little winter break. I am so looking forward to do all the Christmas Shopping, writing Christmas Cards and do some Christmas Cooking.  My family lives in Denmark so I need to prepare for presents to be sent. I am currently making a list of what to gift them.

Yesterday,  I went to an amazing shop in the little city where I live. The name of the shop is Today’s Special.

Who Do You Admire ?

“Fashion is not simply a matter of clothes. Fashion is in the air, born upon the wind. One intuits it. It is in the sky and on the road.”  Coco Chanel.

When I was 15 years old I created my first email-address. The name was chanel@post.tele.dk. I was so happy that I was able to create that name. I loved it so much.  I think that was my beginning of my Chanel adventure. I started to purchase her perfumes. I visited her shop in Paris, Chanel – 31 Rue Cambon, and watched haute couture shows on TV.

After have watched movies about her life I started to fall in love with Coco Chanel’s (Gabrielle Bonheur “Coco” Chanel) personality. Her passion, her creativity and her love for making women adorable and comfortable. There are made several movies about Coco Chanel. My favorite one is Coco Chanel (2008). It is such a beautiful and touching movie that describes Coco Chanel’s life from her early childhood until her late 80’s.
