Today’s my last post for my Japan Spring 2014 Trip log. I’ll share last year’s autumn’s one soon but that will have to wait a bit. I have so many exciting recipes I want to try and share too! Can’t wait to carve out some time to hit the kitchen! Also, I’ve been trying to increase my running mileage a little at a time in preparation for my very first 10k at this coming #sundown run but my knees have been really unhappy at the impact! Does anyone have any suggestions? I can walk 10k (speed 7.5 on the treadmill) but I can’t run it. GRRR. Take care of your health and body everyone! It’s very frustrating when it can’t do what you want it to do!
Anyway- here’s my very very mini personal haul from Tokyo this time. Actually just plenty of (fake) washi tape. Haha.
First up- my divided bento box from the same series as my lunch jar cover! I didn’t buy the soup jar as it was pretty but impractical- too small! So I bought the cover on my last trip. This time I saw a matching divided box so I bought it as well! I really wanted the usagi series of lacquered bento boxes but they were totally out of stock so I guess I’ll proabbly order them online or wait patiently till I get back to Japan again.
In case you don’t know what I’m talking about- here is a screenshot from the lunchbox video I uploaded some time back
See, matchy matchy 🙂
Then on to more washi tapeeeeee. I bought EIGHT sets of everything here as gifts for my #washiobsessed friends as well. 🙂
Russian doll washi tape! So cute! And only SGD 1.20 from Daiso!
These Japanese themed washi tape were slight more expensive at 300+ yen from Loft.
Ballerina themed bookmarks 🙂
THIS. is something I buy each time I am in Tokyo. Pastel pink correction tape (the tape is the standard white. It’s just the outside that is pastel pink). They don’t have this colour in Singapore AT ALL. I always get it when I’m there. I work with very naughty children and they always break my stationery 🙁 Now I have another set as back up 🙂
Lots and lots and lots of planner stickers. Aren’t the animals at the back just the cutest? You stick them around important dates and the date shows through their bellies 🙂
Little mayo holders for my bento lunchbox 🙂
My one and only beauty purchase from The Land of Cosmetics. HAHAH. I use the lighter moisturizer (seen in the middle) after washing my face in the morning if I’m headed for the gym and going to perspire a lot) and the richer one (on the far right) for night time. I don’t use toner or lotion or serums. Maybe I should but I don’t know where to start. :/
A garlic grinder!!!! From Donki. This was not cheap. About $10sgd. I haven’t had the chance to use it yet and am mildly suspicious it’s gimmicky and of no use but I couldn’t resist buying it. I HATE chopping garlic but LOVE eating it! 🙂
Sakura thememed Washi tape to commemorate this spring trip!
Line washi tape! Haha. So cute! I use this to decorate letters to my boyfriend or stick it around my desk and it reminds me of him 🙂
Random stationery. And before I end off… here is my current washi tape box about to be filled to the brim with my new purchases 🙂
Off I go to craft and scrapbook! 🙂
Happy week ahead lovelies!
