Few Snaps – Tokyo: June is Hydrangea Month

June is Hydrangea month in Japan and I thought I’d better post the few pictures I took while I was walking around Tokyo before June actually ends.

These hydrangeas were in Nihonbashi in front of a shop(but I forgot what) next to a fly-over high-way. I loved how it was so developed in the area and then you just find a bunch hydrangea plants just blossoming in the centre of it all. Kudos to the owner of that shop!

Swipe on the Nail: Chifure – Nail Enamel 544


Product Name: Chifure – Nail Enamel 544

Brand Name: Chifure

Retail Price: 320 Yen (Tax Excluded) | 345 Yen (Tax Included, Japan’s sales tax currently sits at 8%).

Chifure Nail Enamel is a quick-drying polish that provides a flawless, long-lasting finish. Comes with a flat-tip applicator for an easy, smooth and even application.

Product Official Website

Fragrance-free | Toluene-free | Oxybenzone-free

Purchased at SunDrug, Nakano Kita-Guchi. 

This product was in my Tokyo Haul Post here, which I got from SunDrug.


I was a bit surprised to see Chifure sold in a pharmacy/drug store considering the fact that Chifure is more commonly found in large established department stores. The price of their stuff is more appropriate to pharmacies, but the brand positions themselves as affordable in price but upscale in quality of product. Its a more unique sort of marketing that I think might spread to other parts of retail world.

Eye Cream: Charlotte Tilbury – Magic Eye-Rescue


Product Name: Charlotte Tilbury – Magic Eye-Rescue

Brand Name: Charlotte Tilbury

Category: Eye Cream

Retail Price: £40.00 (British Pounds Stirling)

Purchased mine at Selfridges Department Store, London, U.K.

Charlotte Tilbury is probably one of the most my most anticipated Western beauty brand launches in the past decade. Simply because, well, the whole brand concept and everything is something I’m absolutely not. Its so not my aesthetic which only makes me more curious to try her products.

Check ittt:

I was out with my siblings and they wanted to go weab-out at Nakano where Mandarake and all things 80s were. For a severely under-touristed city, there sure are a lot of tourists at Nakano and as much as I usually loathe touristy areas, anyone in Tokyo should make a trip there at least once.
