::Cooking Fun::

日本語ver. HERE

Okay, before getting onto the main subject.....


(Guess she was thinking "what are you looking at?")


I just miss them so much!! 
Can't wait to see them next month.

So.... recently I started learning some new dishes at my friend's apartment.
She's a great cook and I love everything that she makes.

Last month, we cooked stir-fried spicy pork on rice, my favorite Thai dish.

Also made steamed veggies and sauce to come with them.

Valentine's Day is coming up next month, so the desserts were all made with chocolate!! 
(since girls send some chocolate gifts to guys on Valentine's Day in Japan.)

Creamy soft chocolate bites.

Super easy Gateau Chocolat.

Everything was so delicious and it was nice sharing time with some new friends who came over for the cooking lesson. 

On just one ordinary day, I cooked myself a dinner after coming back from work.

Simmered chicken with carrot.

Pumpkin salad :)

Chiffon cake!!!
I was really bad at making this kind of cake for some reason, but I finally managed to make the perfect one!
I will try different versions with green tea, British tea, cocoa etc... this year.

It was even better with maple syrup!

At my friend's apartment, this handsome guy always joins us while we cook.

Yep... he wasn't in a good mood when this pic was taken.

Isn't he so handsome?

Thank you for reading.

::Fashion Haul:: Jan. 2016

日本語ver. HERE

Shopping is the best therapy for every girl, don't you think?
Well, I KNOW that it is not a good excuse for a crazy fashion haul. In addition to winter sales, there were some shopping events of modern kimono to go to this month, so I just couldn't miss the chance.

So here is my shopping diary of this month.

Long deep brown gloves and a clip. 
When I wear a kimono, there is no pockets to keep my hands warm. On a windy day, cold air comes into my kimono sleeves so these are the must-have for all kimono girls.

I wore them on the day of my family New Year luncheon.
Click HERE for the total look.

Actually I lost another pair of cute gloves in last winter only a couple of weeks after I bought them. Not to let that happen again, I got this clip this time.

And I also found really cheap short gloves (about 10 USD!) in navy blue at NEXT

Big tote bag from 3.1 Phillip Lim
I wrote about this look HERE

Forever 21 makes nice ear jackets! 
I also love the price! They were about 5 bucks.

Roccoya had a limited time store opened for a couple of weeks at Laforet Harajuku.

They released a new Obiage series called "Dizzy".
I chose this lime-green color.

Yep, looking at this closely makes me dizzy...

Also got a haneri (kimono collar).

Another modern kimono shop which was opened for only a week.
It was full of beautiful things created by my favorite designers.

Butterflies and flowers.

Yep!!! I wanted them so bad!!!! But I pushed that urge back....
Too many beautiful things that hit the spot!!

One little thing I got on the first day was this head dress.
Can't wait to wear it!

My kimono friend and I went to the shop on the other day and I tried on butterfly kimonos in two different colors.

In black.

and in white!
I like the white one better and I look awesome in it! lol

Okay so there is no end to girls' materialistic desires. It has to end now.
So I dropped the kimono and got these obis instead.

Beautifully collaged obi designed by CHOKO.

And......I LOVE CAT OBI by hicaloryotome :)

Can't wait to wear them and show you how I look with them!

Thank you for reading.
