Mindful Parenting: Yoga with kids

I started yoga more than 10 years ago just because it was trendy and everyone was talking about. But after I gave a birth to my son, yoga has became my lifestyle and part of my parenting. Yoga helped me so much with my depression and now it’s my favorite activity with my son.

Doing yoga with kids is not just fun. It reconnects you with our natural childhood senses. You will notice the wonderful ways your legs, feet and hands move even when falling. Sometimes we notice that we’re taking ourselves too seriously or laughing rather than judging when we fall out of a pose can help us let go of some the limitations we’ve created for ourselves. There are of course some benefits for kids too. Yoga enhances their flexibility, strength, coordination and body awareness. In addition, their concentration and sense of calmness and relaxation improves.

Yoga helps kids to:

  • Develop body awareness
  • Learn how to use their bodies in a healthy way
  • Manage stress through breathing, awareness, meditation and healthy movement
  • Build concentration
  • Increase their confidence and positive self-image
  • Feel part of a healthy, non-competitive group
  • Have an alternative to tuning out through constant attachment to electronic devices

We can create more magic, inspirations, happiness, love, joy and laughter both on and off the mat.









Benefits from using lipstick

Lipstick is often used as a tool for self-expression. You’re never fully dressed without a smile—or lips coated in color. Lipstick has been the most popular form of makeup for decades and there is no indication that this will change any time soon. You might already know about it but did you know there are benefits from using lipstick?

Protects and heals

Lipstick can protect our lips from the cold and wind, by forming a protective barrier for your lips. If your lips were already in trouble, the right lipstick will also help to repair cracked dry lips. You might want to find a right one now because who doesn’t need to have soft, supple and smooth lips?

Brightens eyes

Lipstick makes your smile look nice and bright . You should avoid warmer tones if you are wearing lipstick to brighten your smile. It can also complete your look, whether it is about looking more credible at a professional setting or more sexy for a date night.

Enhances eyes

Lipstick has the effect of making your eyes really stand out. It makes your eye bigger and enhances the color of your eyes. Your choice of color is important. So make sure to choose the right shade of lipstick that will enhance your eye.

psychological Boost

Lipstick makes you feel more confident and powerful. As a matter of fact, they are usually perceived by others as being more attractive, and in control. Wearing lipstick can also lift our spirits, especially in difficult times. It makes us feel empowered, and unleashes our femininity that positive energy is felt by all who we encounter.

On surface they appear only as a tool for allowing you to look your best, but underneath, they are an important tool that can help you from inside out.


保護 & 回復









The best blend of science and nature.

Since so many people asked me what’s in LipSense, I would like you to show what the ingredients are and how the color stays on your lips. As you know LipSense is a long lasting lip color, waterproof, does not kiss-off, smear-off, rub-off or budge-off! You can even creat your own color palette by combining colors from over 50 shades. you can’t get bored with their collection. Plus it is GMO free, cruelty free, gluten free, wax free, lead free and made in the USA.


  • Denatured Alcohol: Used as a delivery system for the color technology creates a germ and bacteria-free environment. it’s thinner than water and suspends the tiny particles within the formula.

***It immediately evaporates from the skin upon the delivery of the technology to the skin. (The “tingling” sensation felt on the lips, when some wearers first begin to use the color, is the evaporation process of the Denatured Alcohol felt within the dry cracks of the lips. This sensation disappears as lower layers of skin’s moisture content are restored by the use of the moisturizing gloss.)*****

  • Paeonia Suffruticosa Root/Tree Peony Extract: A natural calming plum flower herb.
  • Hypericum Perforatum/St. John’s Wort Extract: Also known as St. John’s Wort, a natural herb used to elevate mood and treat depressions.
  • Tilia Cordata/Linden Flower Extract: A natural flower extract rich in flavonoids and a powerful anti-oxidant.
  • Isodonis Japonicus Extract: Fragrant plant extract that contains terpenes, shown to have medicinal properties to soothe skin.

***Some people said that they didn’t like the smell of the lipstick. The smell might come from these plant extracts***


  • Mica: An earth mineral gives products sparkle and shine.
  • Titanium Dioxide: an inert earth mineral used as a thickening ingredient and sunscreen in cosmetics. It protects skin from UVA and UVB radiation and is considered to have no risk of skin irritation.

Why it stays

LIPSENSE is NOT a stain. It doesn’t penetrate the skin and go into the blood stream. LIPSENSE is a patented molecular bond, meaning it sticks to your skin and that is why you have to clean and dry lips so that the pigment can stick to it with the patented technology. Lipsense is a beautiful blend of science that makes a pharmaceutical-grade cosmetic product with natural botanicals and pure pigments. Again, It is NOT a lip stain, but rather a molecular bond that, when applied, sticks to the skin on your lips and stays put. It’s thinner than water because it’s made with SD40 alcohol so that it applies evenly, dries very quickly and leaves only the color in place. No thick waxy residue buildup for you to smear and smudge around like traditional makeup!

It became more than hobby.

I used to hate cooking. I didn’t want to spend time and money on cooking. I used to buy food on the way home and eat it right after I get home.

But time passed and things changed. I have family now and realized that I can’t keep doing it anymore. But I still don’t want to spend time and money on it. Also, I’m Japanese so always cook Japanese/Asian food and my family got bored of it… I tried to cook different type of food. Fried, baked, grilled and all kinds but it’s just not easy when you don’t want to spend time and money… I used to even spend lots of time on finding a recipe.

So I researched and looked for easier, faster and cheaper way to cook and all my family can enjoy and be healthy. And I found the company called BLUE APRON.

BLUE APRON sends you recipes and ingredients every week. You just need to follow the recipe and voila!! Your food will be ready in 15-40 minutes depends on a menu. And you get to keep the recipes and reused them.

Cooking became more than hobby. It’s part of my self care. It makes me relax, release my stress, and simply feel good. Actually researchers have drawn a line connecting making food with positive feelings. In recent years psychologists have started spending more time exploring cooking and baking as a therapeutic tool to help people dealing with things like depression and anxiety. A little creativity each day can go a long way towards happiness and satisfaction in the bustle of daily life.

My family love the recipes and ingredients. Easy to cook, fresh and there are many menu that you can pick. To have variety of healthy food every week makes my life much easier and fun!



そこで、どうにかして毎日簡単に短時間で作れる方法はないかと探した結果、Blue Apronを見つけました。

Blue Apronは毎週、家に食材とレシピを届けてくれるサービス。好きなレシピを選べるし使ったレシピは今後も使えるのでとても便利です。調理時間も15分〜40分。レシピにもよりますが1時間かからずに調理する事ができます。



Perfect lipstick that you must have

I’m not a makeup or beauty person but always want to look good.

Since I gave a birth to my son, my body, skin, hair, even mood have been totally changed. (you will understand if you have kids.) so I’m more sensitive now when it comes to picking up products. I want natural, organic products and less damage to myself.

But the problem is that there are SO MANY makeup and beauty products and I didn’t know what to pick UNTIL my friend told me about this lipgloss called LipSense.

LipSense is a lipgloss that is

Water Proof

Kiss Proof

Smudge Proof

Wax & Lead Free

Gluten Free & GMO Free

Vegan & Cruelty Free

And what I like about this lipgloss is that it LASTS UP TO 18 hours!! I’m super busy these days. I don’t have time to fix my makeup or freshen up… so, this lipgloss is perfect for people like me.

Also, I don’t have to worry about putting it on my son’s face or body. I really have to be careful about it because my son has really sensitive skin. And it’s been headache to find products that is safe for my son. (We kiss and hug all the time.)

I’ve been using LipSense since last year and people see me with the lipgloss and say

“I like your lipstick.”

“Your lips look gorgeous.”

These just make me feel good.

I was away from try to look good since I got my son. I was too tired and depressed for the passed couple years. I lost my confidence and I was lazy especially when it comes to putting my makeup on. I wanted to look good but didn’t want to spend my time, money and energy on it.

But thank god for LipSense. Because now, I love and enjoy putting makeup on. It makes me feel good and gives me confidence back. (Getting confidence back is still working in progress but getting better.)

LipSense is perfect for someone who doesn’t want to spend time and money, lazy to fix and put makeup on many times a day but want to look good and looking for safe and plant base product. If it’s YOU, I highly recommend you to get one for yourself or your family and friends. You can go to the LIPSENSE website and enjoy the lipgloss with clicking the link below ↓↓↓ Hope you like it!

なるべくですがオーガニックでナチュラルなものでダメージの少ないものを探すんですが…お店やオンラインで調べてみるととても数が多くどの商品が自分に一番合っているかが分からず買物がしにくい状態でした。そんな中、私の友達が紹介してくれたLipSense に出会い全てが変わりました。
