Trader Joe’s

TraderJoes440Trader Joe’s is the American grocery store which sells not only food or juice, but also shampoos or medical supplies. They are particular about quality of the food. For example, they have gourmet food, vegetarian food, and especially organic food. In addition, these are really cheap! I recommend you buy an original eco-friendly bag, organic cookies, seasonings, and especially salty chocolate brownies, as a souvenir. Ice cheese cake is also very good, but you cannot bring to Japan…


Finding Nemo

Finding_NemoFinding Nemo” is an American animation movie released by Walt Disney Pictures. It is an adventure story being set in the sea of Great Barrier Reef in Australia. Two ocellaris clownfish, a father and a child, got separated in the big ocean. The father searches for his child, Nemo which was captured by a human. On the way, the father encounters difficulties, for example, he mets three sharks in the ocean and they try to eat the father. At the end, two fishes can meet without being killed. The theme is mainly “family ties” and “confidence with friends.” I think this is a heartwarming story for anybody.  So, if you have never watched it, please go to rent the DVD.

Snacks for beauty

Hi, everyone. Today I would like to share just one thing, snacks! I know especially girls love candy and it’s so addictive. Have you ever experienced though you are on diet, you can’t stop eating chips? This time I’ll tell you some healthy snacks.

The first thing you have to get in a supermarket is nuts (for example, almond, walnut etc…). It contains good oil and  makes your skin smooth. I recommend you to have 3 to 5 almonds before you have something sweets like cakes. It avoid getting too much fat. But, do not have too much. You might get pimples.

The second thing is fruits! According to the research, Japanese are less likely to have fruit in daily life compered to Western people. It has variety of good vitamins for your body. Try to have more fruit instead of sugary and fatty snacks. You can eat it the way it is or you can also make your original juice.
Girls, stop having fatty chips. If you try to have these food and add some work out in your life, you are no longer couch potato! This video shows you how to make homemade juice. It looks nice.

Swimwear 2013

I’m going to introduce about trends in swimwear in this year. The keywords are “bandeau,” “neon color,” and ” big flower pattern” in 2013. “Bandeau” means a narrow brassiere, and there aren’t straps of shoulder. “Neon color” is being in fashion this summer, and putting the neon color in the fashion is popular among young women. “Big flower pattern” means not small flower. You can attract attenrion better than small flower pattern. All of swimwear in this year are very cute! If you haven’t bought a swimwear in this year yet, you should go to buy quickly.
