Journal of Japan

This is a picture heavy post, where I share the photographs of my journal of travelling – it started slow but once I got into it (on the road) it got more decorative! Should fire ruin this journal, at least I’ll have it in blog form, and you get to sticky beak! Questions most welcome!

Souvenirs from Japan

So what did I buy in Japan? Aside from four tops/shirts for a number of multinational companies (Zara, Uni Qlo, H&M), I also bought a belt from Old Navy.  That’s all par for the course –  I have the time and the funds when on holidays to buy clothing. However, I also bought Two packets …

Japan trip in July

My apologies, devoted and committed readers (hahaha), it’s been more than a week since my last confession post.  But to break the silence, I have some VERY exciting news (which I alluded to in comment on declutter)! All the wonderful photographs are directly from Louise Hawson, and brilliantly talented photographer from Sydney who took her daughter …
