102F Heat wave~ D; Japanese Garden+OOTD

Hello~

Few days ago we had a heat wave here in MN where it was 102F... D: I couldnt believe how hot it was,, so Zach & I decided to go to Normandale Japanese garden to cool off and relax :)

It was wayyyy too HOT and bright to take photos but I tried anyways lol trying to keep a cool face was the hard part~ X3

I will get back to review products just wanted to shoot a video review along with a blog post so that is why I have been so behind couldnt find much time to film cause of work and the situation with the house,, but I will have time tomorrow so hopefully I will get the reviews going! ^__^

Thank you for always being so patient & sweet with me I truly appreciate it~♥

for now OOTD ;)
Had my hair nicely done but it was so hot that I just put it up sorry its blah.. D;



Vintage Dingo leather cowboy boots from ebay


 A/X Armani Exchange denim strapless dress


This Japanese Garden was built in celebration of Nisei Japanese war world II veterans and friendship with the Minnesota people. Small garden but certainly beautiful and relaxing :)

    It seems the Japanese Garden is in Argentina, only this is a bit smaller. But it is very beautiful!
    Surely you and Zach spent a very nice day XD

    I totally feel for you when it comes to deciding hairstyle in the heat. I'd rather have one that's more cooling than a hot day as well. 

    The garden looks pretty decent sized! It looks so pretty. ❤ Is it always that empty there?
