I have only gotten a tiny few but I always feel like such a guber when I do... mainly cuz I'm thinking they surely must have ran out of people to give it to and felt sorry for me.. LOL so much for confidence right?
well the very cool Maggie Y awarded me with one so I thought I would pay homage and pay it forward!
First... I must again thank Maggie Y for giving this award to me... My blog is a bit all over the place and times and often I have a hard time staying in my niche but thanks to all my readers who read it anyways!
Two... I must share 7 things about myself
* I love buying false lashes, but rarely wear them =\
* I'm afraid of the ocean
* I eat my pancakes plain with no butter or syrup
* My favorite thing in my closet :: Burberry Trench Coat
* I've worn it twice
* I want to learn how to fly a plane one day
* I dye my already dark hair black.
Three... I must pass it on to 7 newly discovered blogs that I love

Basically they travel all over the world and buy basic things from wherever they are and bring it back to the States. This time around the items they are featuring are from Japan. Some of the things are pretty neat others are pretty common. Either way its a cool site that is something a little bit different.
Just kinda different right?

In reality what happened is I moved, now have wonderful renters, took a step back from school and work because I was getting overwhelmed and discovered I'm having a baby! yay! Me and my husband are happy and a little nervous but excited non the less! During my last pregnancy I had hypermesis which basically means I was sick like ALL THE TIME. no fun. and this pregnancy isnt much different so a lot of my strength has been drained...
But the good news I'm getting back into the swing of things and back to blogging. I can't begin to tell you all how happy blogging makes me and how many wonderful people I have met and new things I have learned. A little bit cheesy but I really do love you all! =)

Dekotora, or decoration trucks, most of these trucks are actually functioning delivery trucks for misc goods... although they don't normally turn on the lights and everything, it sure looks cool when they do!

One of the features today was about Satomi Yakuwa... who you might ask? Actually Satomi has quite a following according to the article and is not only a senzoku (only models for ONE magazine in particular) but also a working Hostess too!
Busy girl right? Check out the article and find out more about Miss Satomi and her busy careers!
HOWEVER... there are rules!!
The rules are pretty straight forward... like not being creepy stalker status for one!
lol, the main one, which I think almost everyone knows and can guess, is not to take pictures of the Maids without asking since they charge... usually if you do decided you want a picture they will decorate it afterwards! cute right??

|Naughty Kiss a new JDrama which premiered 9/1|
So here is the low down...
- Dorama = Drama
- Japan has four television seasons in which new shows will premiere in: Winter (January–March), Spring (April–June), Summer (July–September), and Autumn or Fall (October–December)
- Evening dramas, typically are like 12 episodes long with a normal season finale type episode (similar to here in the States)
- Dramas are often filmed only a few weeks before they actually air... which I always wonder why they don't do that here...
- The starting time is not always on the hour or half hour. Because ratings are so important in Japan they normally start a few minutes before or after the hour. The thinking on this is that once one show ends the viewer will prob be more likely to watch the next show on since they already missed a few minutes of other shows on a different channel... so clever!!!
So now that we got the basics... where do people watch these?
- CrunchRoll -- downside you gotta pay
- Your local Japanese video store -- funny right? I'm sure these exist though, sadly not really helpful for me
- Mysoju -- this site looks reputable but I really have no clue.. thought I would give it a try
- and I'm sure Youtube if you are willing watch it in annoying under 15 min sections..
What do you think? Good starters? Any recommendations??

|sorry for glare...!|
Normally I get my magazines from this website, and I thought I would tell you all bout it!
Royal Quartz is the website I normally use to purchase Japanese magazine in the States. Since I live in a small town I don't really have access to any Japanese goods stores, so my only other option is online... and though there are plenty of sites that sell Japanese magazines, SHIPPING RATES ARE SOOOOO SCARY... lol. Seriously though, shipping rates kill ya... but Royal Quartz rates are really good considering..
They normally have a good selection of magazines and if they don't have what you are looking for they have a form you can fill out in hopes they might be able to find it for you...
anyways I thought I would share.. do any of you have a favorite site you like to order from? let me know.. maybe I'm missing out on a good thing!

“Riding as a passenger in a vehicle operated by a person intoxicated: DWI — Maximum jail time of 3 years or a fine of about $4,400 or less. DUI — Maximum jail time of two years or a fine not exceeding about $2,650.”
“You don’t have to be drinking to get into trouble
One of the new provisions of Japan’s revised traffic law spells out specific punishment for people who provide alcohol and vehicles to drunken drivers, and those who ride with a driver who they know has been drinking.”
