Fun Saturdays Vol.58 : 5 Random Things

 

 

1. What are you up to this weekend?

 

We’ve had a relaxing weekend so far. Watched a movie (After Earth, really liked it), watched the Argentina v/s Belgium football match last night (1 am Japan time!) and went for a long long walk! Need to catch up on household chores and blog work now!

2. Your favorite beauty product at the moment?

 

I rediscovered the Bobbi Brown Shimmer Brick compactΒ Bronze recently. I had switched to liquid highlighters for a while but came back to it and I’m loving it! I used it on my look post HERE.

3. Paper books or ebooks?

 

I love the feel of a real paper book. Though I do read more of ebooks now but it doesn’t quite give me the same feeling as a real book! Some of my fondest memories of childhood are of books, libraries and book stores. I still get a little thrill inside when I see a book store. (p.s – Does anyone know where I can find an English book store/library in Tokyo?)

4. What do you like to snack on?Β 

 

Most days when I’m being good with my diet, I’d snack on roasted peanuts or dry fruits/nuts. When I want to indulge, I like salty, crispy snacks like flavored potato chips or tortilla chips!

5. Do you play any instruments?

 

Not really. I played a little bit of synthesizer (keyboard) when I was in school. But not that well. Then there was a 2 week stint with Guitar before I went to college 😐
