Kumano Fude Matsuri is the most spectacular event a Fude lover could attend! Absolutely breath taking! Loved every minute and this calligraphy choregraphy is not to miss!!! #kumano #kumanofudematsuri

My first ever calligraphy lesson! Baby level πŸ˜… but the atmosphere and my teacher was so unforgettable! I was already very impressed with calligraphy but now I am a thousand times more! Certainly not the last time, just the beginning!
And did you know you could experience makie and do some yourself? I cannot draw at all but it was really interesting to learn more about this technique!
Having the time of my life !! #morethanjustatrip #japan #fude

The Chikuhodo Kiwami set is back ... Made by Mr Takemori san himself. More beautiful and more expensive but for those of you who were expecting its return, now it's the time to check it out, only 50 have been made so far and price is approx 2'000 USD... It differs a bit from my old one and I haven't seen it in person yet.Β 
Review of the old one on my blog, just search for the keyword kiwami.

Check Chikuhodo website (Japanese) page for more details!Β

#Suqqu AW17, I definitely enjoy the blushes and the eye shadows are of great quality but I still have to use them to see how they perform and look on the eyes.

I like this collection but... I miss the original Suqqu...

My love story with this brush started in 2012, it has been quite an evolution for the Rae Morris Radiance brush!

The bristles of the new 26 Radiance (the flat one) are Saikoho goat, this makes the brush the softest of all versions, it's also more tightly bundled, there is less airiness in its density and the contact surface is reduced compared to the old ones.
Now that her brushes are made in Japan, this has an impact on quality and price but they areΒ undeniably more pleasant to use.
The new mini 27 Radiance (in the center) is Hakutotsuho goat, it's thicker bristles compared to Saikoho and also more appropriate for mineral products, has a more fluffy aired body and is stronger with the blending.... The new 26 is at the botton left and the new 27 in the center! More pics coming soon!

My smallest handmade brushes #hakuhodo pencil, #yojiya cheek with my biggest one from #waynegoss... I always end up losing the tiny one here...finding it again few weeks later.
I used to carry the smallest ever makeup bag when I was riding my motorbike, found that these little gorgeous Hakuhodo and Yojiya ebony were very useful, even though the tip of the Hakuhodo is the perfect size but just a bit too stiff.
I struggle with tiny handles but love when tiny brushes are made with similar quality as bigger versions πŸ‘

When you are asked to sign the guest book, sitting at the desk of Chikuhodo's President, shaking... trying to draw your name but you have no clue how to sign with a brush...Β πŸ˜…

After watching the amazing #kimberlyclarkofficial praising the efficiency of "The Life-Changing Magic of Tidying Up", I decided to order the book and give it a try... The author Marie Kondo mentions that things that don't bring you joy have to go, so... my brushes will definitely not go πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚ they mean so much to me, every single little one!
For the rest of my objects I believe anything can potentially
go... And I will be starting with clothes! πŸŽ‰πŸŽ‰πŸŽ‰ Will not hit minimalism but I still have high hopes for my situation! πŸ˜‚
Thank you @kimberlyclarkofficial 😘

I wanted to create a little corner to lay down and relax, the place available in my office/brushroom was not huge but I managed to squeeze it and it has been very used and loved.
I bought Ikea furniture and hacked it slightly...
The chair and footstool come from the Ikea outlet (exdemo), not expensive at all but then I bought the Marimekko Jonas fabric that I saw one day on a deco site, fell in love and had to find a way to use it! I am no pro when it comes to sewing but I managed to cover them and make some extra cushions... All the drawers are from Ikea kitchen units (shiny white), handles are from Etsy.
Also changed the feet and put instead acrylic ones.
At the end we can achieve a lot with a little creativity and only just a couple of things can make a huge difference
It feels cosy, fun and luminous, quite appropriate for a vanity corner I believe 😁

Installed 4 new glass shelves to store my skincare safely away from little robbing hands... πŸ‘Ά
Issue is, if they are in drawers I dont see them....so I don't use them!

This Limited Edition Marc Jacobs Tan-Tastic bronzer truly rocks my world!Β  More neutral than the Tantric and I don't find the coconut scent too overpowering at all (phew!). I usually don't get backups anymore but this one... yeah... Also tried the white version of The Bronze brush, but I prefer the bristles of the black one. Both of them have too much "grip" on my skin, specially in summer temperatures, not my fav sensation πŸ˜…

Oribe Illuminating Face Palette in Sunlit.
Oribe expanding to make-up...what do you think? I was expecting a higher quality, more staying power and more oomph with these shades because they swatch pretty...
I will just stick to my Burberrys... #oribemakeup

Happy mail today! Some Burberry, It cosmetics and Make up Atelier....and they did it again!! Their smokey brown palette is gorgeous! A twist in tones and interesting combination of mattes, satin and shimmers... With all this #Makeupatelier now I feel like a child with the biggest set of crayons and my consolation when I get up in the morning and have to get ready is knowing these are waiting for me πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚
