Happy New Year!

Table Mountain

2015 is officially here and although I’m a little late it’s not without good reason. I’ve gone home to become a Mrs you see. I travelled all the way back to Cape Town to marry my Lovely, my Michael. As much as I wanted to blog during my 2 week visit to South Africa, I simply did not have the time. Heck, I didn’t even have time to Instagram, not a single photo. For the entire first week, my life was divided up between catching up with friends and family and running last minute wedding errands.

Some of the wedding things we had to see to included:

  • Shopping for wedding shoes
  • Going for my final dress fitting
  • Getting my trial make-up and nails done
  • Attending the rehearsal
  • Designing some wedding stationary and,
  • Meeting with our photographer

Needless to say, it was a hectic time but I enjoyed every minute of it.

I have now returned to Tokyo  with my husband and as sad as I was (and still is) to have left South Africa, being back in Japan gives me the opportunity to blog again. In that sense it’s good to be back. I’ve missed this space. There  are new things that I’m keen to try, both in life and with my hair that I want to share with you here. There are also a few posts which I promised you last year, but that I just didn’t get to as I became consumed by all things wedding towards November and December.

So to all my readers thank you for sticking with me. I love my blog and love that you love it too. Not for a minute did I dream that as many of you would read it. It definitely wouldn’t be the same without you.  I hope to offer you more this year and I’m working on a plan to put it into place.

For now I’m going to leave you with these wise words I found on Pinterest: “Happiness comes when you believe in what you are doing, know what you are doing, and love what you are doing.”

With thankfulness in my heart,
