Japan-day 2013

Yesterday I went to Japan-day. An annual fair for Japanese culture that takes place at the Rhein-promenade in Duesseldorf every year.
I was wearing my yukata again but this time with another obi and a more flattering hairstyle than last year. XD

This is my favorite pic of me that day

I picked up Chrissi in the morning and we went to Duesseldorf together. There we meet Alina and her husband Brandon at the mainstation, where I helped Alina to put on her yukata.

After that we went to eat something. We wanted to go to nainwa but there was such a long waiting-line that we decided to go to another restaurant.

After lunch we went to the Promenade where the Japan-day took place.
Shortly after we arrived there the wether went bad and it was raining and it was so cold and windy. ;__;
We walked the promenade and searched for Ina who we found at the end of the Promenade but sadly we had only a few minutes together.

After being outside in the to cold for a while we decided to go to starbucks to have some coffee and get warm again.

After that we went back to the Promenade because it was allready evening and a gyaru-meetup was going to take place then.
On the meetup we met a lot of nice people. I was very happy to see Jessica again, even if it was only for short.

Of course I took pictures over the day. I really wanted to take more pictures but the weather conditions were so bad that everyone looked shitty after a while. ;__;
You find all of my pics in my photography-gallery. If you are in one of the pictures and want a high-res-copy just email me or drop a line on facebook!

Some Updates

As you might have seen I added a new Layout to the Blog.^^

Also I fixed the "reviews"-section again so that you can find product-reviews easily.

I got a new DSLR camera recently and I really want to improve my photography and editing skills so I will do various photoshoots in the future. For this I added the "Photography"-section where you will find all pics from my shoots.

On sunday I already took some shoots at the Dokomi convention in Duesseldorf, which are now available in the section.^^

New extensions and birthday-party-outfit

Since I had to take out my tape-extensions some time ago, I bought some new clip in extensions.

I think the tape extensions have been a good way to get a good result for the low budget I spend on it. The tape-method is good because there was really no damage on my hair after wearing them for tree months but on the other hand they are really care intensive because it is hard to get foam in-between the rows while washing and you have to renew some strand every now and then (but this is very easy and fast). Sadly the hairquality was not so good (the hair was from ebay), this is why it did last "only" three months.
Away from that I found out that I really don't want to spent like 1-2hours every time I wash my hair and that I in fact don't really wear my hair open for work and stuff so for me, it is not really worth it to have extremly long hair every day.

That is why I bought clip in extensions again. I wanted some good quality hair so I boght it from www.rapunzelofsweeden.de because I have read a lot of good feedbacks and reviews about them.
I decided for a full set of 110g of european hair type, 50cm in length, color #24. They also sell indian hair but I had indian hair before and I always had the feeling that it was thicker and more stiff then my own hair so I figured that the european hair would match my own hair structure better.

The website has an easy structure, provides all informations needed and the ordering process is very easy. The shipping happend very fast and this is what the packaging looked like:

The hair itself was packed in a special plastic packaging and I got some haircare-testers as present:

The set contains of 7 pieces: 1x 4clip-piece, 2x 3clip-piece, 2x 2clip-piece and 2x 1clip-piece:

And a closeup so you can see the colour and structure:

I was very lucky with the color since it matches my haircolor really good.
(If you want to order from them and are not sure of the color you can order a ring of testing-strands and send it back after you figured the right color)
My first impression of the hair is that it is really nice and smooth and a bit thinner than I'm used to from the indian hair. Of course the quality will only fully show after some using, washing and styling.

The first time I wore out my new extensions was my birthday party that took part at my grandparents garden last week.
I did a big barbecue party for all my friends.^^

Of course I bought some new clothes for it. XD So here you can see my outfit for the party:

I tried the neko-mimi hairstyle for the first time and I really liked it on me.^^

On saturday I went to the pirate-themed meetup by my circle Velvet. I will post about it asap!!^^
