The Vernal Equinox Day


Today is the Vernal Equinox holiday in Japan.

As most of our holidays are on Mondays
(thank you for the three-day weekends, Mr. Koizumi!)
it's rare that we have a holiday on Wednesday.

But it's just the break I needed.


According to our Public Holiday Law this holiday is a day
"to admire nature and cherish living things."

I think I'm going to do just that and spend the day outside!


Also, I was inspired by these pretty watercolor nails
and tried them out on mine the other day.

Seemed perfect for spring.
Happy Vernal Equinox to you!

  1. I love your nails!

    That Starbucks cup reminds me of a new drink I tried just yesterday (but at Excelsior Caffé) in honour of spring: ホワイトショコラ・ストロベリー。 I guess strawberry = pinkish = spring?

    Happy "living things day" to you too! Remember to take your camera when you go out cherishing! :)

    1. Thank you! I'm just all kinds of excited for spring!

      That drink sounds amazing, was it good? I may have to go see for my self! (Although in Japan, strawberry is somehow a winter fruit...I know, so crazy!)

      Happy start of the cherry blossom season!!! x
