General travel and photography blog. I am not very good at photography and hope maybe this blog will encourage me to improve! I was living in Japan for a year. I wanted a place where I could look back and view my time there as well as family, friends and random interested parties being able to see what I was getting up to. Now I have returned to the UK I shall endeavour to continue finding interesting things in my daily life to photograph.

I may also post some Japanese language things on here too. Most of the images posted on here are my own, if you plan to use them for anything please respect that and ask permission!Easy to navigate topic links!

When my family lived in India one of my Indian friends taught me this facial pack. It makes the skin soft and it can be made with things just lying around the kitchen. I decided to make it today because my skin has been playing up recently.

1 egg white
Honey 
Oats
If you are of a darker complexion you can also add saffron to help give your skin a golden glow, however if you’re pale (like me) it’ll probably just stain your skin yellow

Simply mix everything thoroughly together. Cleanse your face with warm water and pat dry. I like to start by massaging the mixture on my face, rubbing the oats to get dead skin off. Then dry to get as much of the floppy mixture to sit on your face as possible. Then simply leave to dry and rinse of with warm water when done.

*warning* don’t get into eyes and mouth, doesn’t smell particularly nice and wandering round the house with oats stuck to your face may make you feel stupid.

A small selection of my vintage photo and collection. I’ve been collecting for a while now, if people are interested I’d be happy to put up good scans if them :) I bought these yesterday at an antique store in a random village、it was a jackpot! They had boxes full of postcards and photos. I’m just sad I didn’t have time to thoroughly browse them all.

Getting used to being back in the UK. I have had to make extra effort to look after my skin because the air is so much dryer here.
