What’s your favourite photo in this post? Have you ever been to Japan? Is Japan somewhere you’d like to go to one day?

Where I’ve Been for the Last Month or so! :)


Hello my lovely Truuties,

It feels so good to be back!

Guess where I was…(Clue: I went to the other side of the world!)

I was in Japan!!!! It was incredible! Although I’d been to Japan before to see family there, I discovered so much more this time about the country and life in general – partly because we did more travelling around but also because I’m older and can understand things more. But I must say that seeing my grandparents again was the best part of our time in Japan. I’m so thankful for everything we did and experienced during our trip!

Because we were spending time with family and friends and exploring Japan, I decided that I wouldn’t write any blog posts while we were there; I wanted to make the most of our time. Sorry if any of you were looking forward to some Eastery posts hehe! :/ Hopefully I will have those kinds of posts next Easter. šŸ™‚

Probably my next blog post will be of some photos I took in Japan. I’m so excited to share them with you!

Countries I’d Love to go to

countries-id-love-to-go-to-blog-title

Hello my lovely Truuties,

When I have the opportunity, I would really like to travel lots. There are some countries that I’m interested in a little more than others and have a special place in my heart so I thought I’d share with you what they are, in a blog post.

These are theĀ countries I’d love to go to the mostĀ (or go to again):

  1. JapanĀ – Although I’ve been to Japan four times already (because I have family there and I’m half Japanese), I really, really, would love to go there lots of times again! Maybe one day I’ll live there? It would be so cool if I could visit all 47 prefectures as well! But seriously, Japan is such a beautiful and ‘magical’ place and I’m so grateful that it exists in the world. As well as that, I’m so happy and thankful that I am half Japanese (and half English) because this opens up so many opportunities for me to do things related to Japan! By the way, if you are interested in Japan, you can click here to take a look at my YouTube channel! šŸ™‚

  2. AustraliaĀ – I don’t actually know a lot about the country but I have family who live there. šŸ™‚ It seems like an amazing place! There is another reason why I’d like to go to Australia…I might share that one day in another post…

  3. CanadaĀ – I have family in Canada as well! I’m so grateful to have such an international family! (I think this is turning into a post where I just express my gratitude hahaĀ šŸ˜‚…) I need to mention that Canada is said to be one of the best countries to live in! As well as this, the Green Gables house from the ‘Anne’ series of books by L.M Montgomery, which I really enjoyed reading, is there (in Prince Edward Island) and it would be great to visit it! Montgomery describes such beautiful landscapes and nature in the books so it would be wonderful to see the descriptions come to life in reality.

  4. DenmarkĀ – My best friend (She has a really good blog called Lissie’s Life!) is half Danish so I’ve always liked Denmark. I never was that interested in actually going there though. Well that’s until I heard about the concept ofĀ hygge. In case you’re wondering what this is…I have a book about it and on the back it says,Hygge has been translated as everything from ‘the art of creating intimacy’ to ‘cosiness of the soul’ to ‘taking pleasure from the presence of soothing things’. My personal favourite is ‘cocoa by candlelight’…”. (I might write more about hyggeĀ in a different post.) This got me really interested in the country and I’d love to know more about the Danish lifestyle!

  5. FranceĀ – I’ve been to France twice for day-trips with my school and I really enjoyed the time I spent there! It would be lovely to go with my family for a week or so! I’m learning French at school; I’d like to experience and use the language. Also, I have a Japanese relative who lives in France!

  6. SpainĀ – As well as French, I’m learning Spanish at school and I love it. From the photos I’ve seen, Spain looks really nice!

  7. GermanyĀ – I would love to go to Germany in Christmas-time. The markets seem amazing! Compared to the other countries in this list, I don’t know much about Germany but it looks like a wonderful place!

I hope you enjoyed this post!

I’m thinking of doing a Q&A post sometime so that you can all get to know me better – please comment your questions! They can be about pretty much anything (me, my blog, my interests, my life, my passion for dance, my Christian faith and lots more). šŸ™‚

Lots of love,

Truuty xx

I would love to hear from you in the comments!

A Day in London

Hello, Truuties!

I hope you all had a lovely Easter! On Tuesday I went to London for a day, with my parents, and we had a wonderful time. For today’s post, I’m going to share some photos from our day trip – enjoy!

We took the high-speed train to St Pancras and then took the underground to Covent Garden.

When we got to London (we went to Covent Garden), we had a quick little look around before getting a snack.

I had a very yummy muffin at Peyton and Byrne and my mum had an interesting looking orange and plum cake thing (Haha sorry – I’m not very good at describing cakes!) which she said was very nice. And my dad had one of his favourite foods, a bacon sandwich!

Then it was the big event of my life…something I will remember forever…I got my first pair of pointe shoes!! I always get so excited just at the thought of it! I have pointe shoes! Yayyyyyy!! I remember dreaming of dancing in pointe shoes when I was younger and now I actually own my own pair!

We walked from Peyton and Byrne (the cafe) to the Bloch shop where I got my pointe shoes fitted by a very kind lady. It was an amazing experience! As well as the pointe shoes (and ribbon for the shoes etc.), my parents bought me a very cute mini pointe shoe keyring and a journal called ‘The Dancer’s Journal’! I was super happy with my visit to the Bloch shop!

After getting my pointe shoes, we had a little walk around and took some photos which was really fun.

In Floral Street, there is a twisty bridgeĀ called ‘ The Bridge of Aspiration’ and it provides the dancers of the Royal Ballet School with a direct link to the Royal Opera House. (Haha I kind of copied that description from the Royal Ballet School website…click here to find out more about The Bridge of Aspiration.) It was really nice to take a few photos of that.

We had a look around the Covent Garden market area and went to The Moomin Shop which was so cool even though we didn’t buy anything there!

For lunch, we went to a restaurant called Le Pain Quotidien. Their food was so deliciousĀ and I really enjoyed my meal. I had the soup of the day, which was Cream of Tomato, and I had avocado toast! I now have avocado toast for breakfast!

After lunch, we walked to The British Museum.We had a look around and it was amazing! The building is so big! I would love to go again to see more exhibits!

We walked to Oxford Street and as we were getting soaked from the rain and were hungry, we went to Costa and I had a hot chocolate and a chicken wrap! After that, we had the energy to take the underground to Forever21. My mum bought me a lovely navy and white stripey top and some cute bunny socks! “Thanks, Mum! xx”

Then it was time to go home. I had a really good day packed with exciting and fun events! It will be a day to remember always!

Lots of love,

Truuty xx

I would love to hear from you in the comments!

How have your Easter (or Spring) holidays been (if you have Spring holidays in your country)? Do you remember buying or getting anything special, like I got my first pair of pointe shoes? (My grandad remembers getting his first pair of spike shoes for athletics!) Have you been to London before? What do you like about London?
