So I was tagged by the lovely Jana Katrina from My Vogue Obsession at, Please check her out :)

I really enjoy doing and read these tags no matter how random the questions are, since they're a great way to get to know more about another.

The questions:

1. What is your original hair colour?

A reddish dark brown, but I haven't seen my natural color since I was 15.

2. Why did you start blogging?

Several of my Friends, family members and former clients suggested that I start a beauty blog. They were always emailing me or scheduling Skype dates whenever they need beauty advise, questions on a product or help with a look for an event.  I'm really enjoying this creative outlet, as well as, being able to make friends with people who have the same obsessions as myself.

3. What is your favourite season?

Fall, winter and spring. but mainly Fall. Sorry but I just hate summer, especially in Tokyo! Apartments here don't have central a/c units, so, my apartment basically turns into an oven during Summer. Also, it's so humid, that by the time I get to my station, I'm drenched in sweat...not fun :(

4. If you could only shop in one place forever where would that be?

Probably the states. Everything is SOOOOOOOOOOOO expensive here and at times, the quality isn't that great. Don't get me wrong, I still do plenty of retail damage here :O

 5. What is your opinion about hair extensions?

Go for it! As long as it's done properly. I once had to get extensions after a horrible hair cut. Thank god my hair grows very fast.

6. What is your favourite quote about fashion or beauty?

I don't have one favorite quote, but here a few that I like:

    "There is a kind of beauty in imperfection".
Conrad Hall

    "Fashion is not something that exists in dresses only. Fashion is in the sky, in the street, fashion has to do with ideas, the way we live, what is happening".
Coco Chanel
    "Perfection is boring. If a face doesn't have mistakes, it's nothing".
Kevyn Aucoin

7. What is your favourite Ice Cream flavor?

 pralines n'cream, pistachio, black seasame and popping shower. 

8. Are you a cat or a dog person? 

Dog person, but I have a cat named Sid Vicious that I left with my parents back in Miami. Love you Sid!!!

9. What is your favourite movie?

Oh Jesus, I can't answer this one. I love movies and I have way to many to pick just one. Here are a few: 

The Red Shoes, Peeping Tom, Black Narcissus (funny enough, all directed by Michael Powell), Inception, Edward scissorhands, Hero, Oldboy, A tale of two sisters, Sweeney Todd, 2046, Coraline and the list goes on and on...

10. Lipstick or lipgloss?

Lipstick, but own a crap load of lipglosses. 

11. At the moment what is on your wishlist? 

More Inglot eyeshadows, more Rouge Bunny Rouge  and the two new Helena Rubinstien eyeshadow palettes, but just as Jana stated in her post, my list is also neverending :)

Now, I'm suppose to tag 11 people to do this tag, but why limit myself to just 11. Just like the other tag, I tag all of you to do this. Looking forward to reading all your responses :D

I leave you with some photos of two of my favorite building in Shinjuku.
