Today, I am posting about a recent purchase I made on Etsy from Bellamela's shop. Since I just recently purchased a macbook pro, I needed a nice laptop sleeve. Searched through Etsy, and found the cutest sleeves ever! Check it out here. Although, she is on vacation right now, so you will need to wait to see the products... But here is a sneak peak of the laptop case. It's so cute and I love the way it fits so perfectly on my laptop. Price is excellent too! Only 19.99!

Great menu ranging from crepes to coffees and teas. I gravitated toward their dessert selection which is listed on a separate menu.
Wouldn't you want to walk in if you were passing by?
Shibuya Box = So good! super OISHI!
Yes, this is definitely my store -- They have a Bunny Kit!!! Now, what is a bunny kit??? I have no idea. It was so cute though! Look at my ecstatic expression. I am a sucker for anything that has cute bunny and/or is bunny themed.
Artsy prints + disposable cameras. Enjoyed the photographic, colorful prints on canvas. The canvas gives it an artsy feel in spite of its mass production. Love it!
Just a snippet of the many notebook and journal designs. I would totally buy these if I was still in school. Otherwise, I have no use for them really.
I am happy they opened this store at Stonestown. I will make sure to pay a visit every time I make my way to that mall. The mall now has two must go-to stops: Yesstyle + Typo <3

Maido Finds. First is decorative tape. They had a nice selection. I am a fan of the plaid and panda tapes.
And of course, rilakkuma products. This is the one reason I'd want an iPhone - otherwise I'll stick with android. Must find a rilakkuma case for android phones!!
Rilakkuma paper clip holders.
yummy festival foods
My favorite store: Maido
Cute things in Maido
Must have this pencil case!
Vendor that had cute products for sale. Check them out.
Great day at the cherry blossom festival. There are no cherry blossom pictures though because the cherry blossom trees were wilting. Spring came too fast

Paris Baguette Creme Brûlée: Tasty, but not my personal preference. I am still in love w/ Andersen Bakery's more humble and simple creme brûlée.
I am all about this packaging. I love how cute they made their cups.
If there is any food that I would be willing to eat at any time, it would be ramen. Love Ramen.

Tea makes my days brighter. Sat down to make myself a little afternoon tea with tea snacks. A mix of savory and sweet snacks goes very well with green genmaicha tea.
Also, I just downloaded Instagram for Android. Previously, I was using Mytubo, which has really nice filters too. You can tell the difference in quality though - the above photo is instagram, while the photo below is mytubo. The only thing I don't like about the instagram is that you have to crop the photo.

Lately, I've been in to making handmade gifts for friends. It's so much fun to put together, plus it gives me a chance to attend to the packaging aesthetics. This was a gift I put together for Christmas, but it could be for any day of the year. This package has a homemade sugar scrub, green tea facial mask, and a bar of soap. Click here for the homemade sugar scrub tutorial, and the green tea facial mask tutorial. I love how both feel and the effect it has on my skin. It always feels more clear and bright after these treatments.
To both recipes, I added vitamin E oil for more moisturizing value, as well as skin damage renewal.
In the photo, I got the basket and jars from Daiso. I got the filler from the dollar store. The packaging consists of simple stamps, tissue paper, and card stock. And the actual products inside were basic household products. This is the other great aspect of homemade gifts -- you can make a lot for all your friends without going over your budget. It's the effort and love that you put in rather than the cost!

Before: Empty Journal getting ready to be decorated with rilakkuma stickers & washi tapes!
During: Bunny decided to join in on the crafting!
After: Finished Product! I ended up not using the rilakkuma stickers because it didn't seem to fit. But I plan to decorate the back cover accordingly.
