Japan 1.

A few things that made me smile today: "fish" for breakfast (this is actually a sweet treat filled with chestnut and red bean),

washi tape galore,

an unusual canine carrier,

and, last but not least, my parents. (Can you spot my mom?)

PS: I'm on Oh Joy! today - check out my "Closet & Casa" feature, here! Thanks so much for having me, Joy and Bri!


  1. So many great things about this post. But the best thing, well two of them, the dog carrier (only in Japan) and you mother lurking in the background.

  2. Those photos make me very happy! looks like you're already having a great time.

  3. Oh my GOSH, that photo of you and your folks is just adorable. And I'm jealous of all the washi. :)

  4. super cool closet and casa on ohjoy! x

  5. OH MY HILARIOUS!!! I totally would have adorned one of those doggie carriers when I had my two yorkies. I use to walk around my apt. with my one yorkie sebastian hanging out in my overall pouch OR tucked in my hoodie, with it belted below him so he wouldn't fall out...that was how he took his naps! Hilarious! ;)

    cute blog by the way. :)
