Fall in Yamanashi

Last weekend a bunch of friend and I went for light and scenic hike at Shosenkyo gorge. It was such a beautiful day!
We saw a feral cat that walked side by side with the passersby, and a pack of cute and possibly wild pups. We ate black sesame seed ice cream, enjoyed a giant Japanese rice cracker and took some grilled fish home. I meet a friendly group of Chinese travelers who wanted to know more about me, for sone reason. The most amazing sight however, (after the beautiful view of Fujisan, and the reds, oranges and yellows of the changing leaves), was seeing monkeys. For me, this was awesome! I've never seen monkeys in the wild before. I was so excited that I scared them off by shouting and pointing for my friends to come have a look. Luckily, they were able catch a glimpse of them before they ran right back into the trees.
Here are some photos of my hike. Unfortunately, I didn't get any of the monkeys.

Thank you for visiting! :)

Glossybox: September edition

I was really excited when I received this month's Glossybox as the box was heavy which immediately made me think - Full sized products!!
I was right, but at the same time I was expecting something a little more. Either way, I'm still very happy with the contents.

Here's what I got:
Use beautywater® Q10 specifically to give back the freshness and vitality your cells are lacking.
Sounds interesting enough, I'll give it a go. 
Esthederm Sample set
Kaotsubo Cosmetics 8601 Repre trail
I think it's face stuff?
nesno Balance veil
I honestly have no idea what this is. I'll have to ask a friend. I first thought shower gel, then maybe face toner. But after putting a dab on my fingers tips I'm more confused than ever. 
Zoya in Paloma
I'm so excited to try this polish as the colour is just so pretty!

All in all I'm happy with this box. The polish is what made it worth it. The beauty water sounds fun, but it's not something I'll buy into. Before I set that in stone, I should really give it a try.

Thanks so much for reading!
