As someone who is obsessed with cute, pastel things and illustration you can imagine how thrilled I was to receive this month’s House of Wonderland Jewellery Club* box. Each month HOW send out themed boxes filled with exclusively designed, handmade items.
The first thing I noticed about this box was how beautifully everything was packaged. Every detail was spot on from the washi tape on the front, to the pastel confetti and twine inside - I couldn’t wait to dive in.

Last week I took a trip up North to pay my friends and family a visit. I met up with Abby and Shelley, my friends from art college, for cake and a catch up at The Olde Young Tea House.
The Olde Young Tea House is a charming, local business offering home brewed teas in every flavour imaginable from Japanese sencha to China gunpowder, peach, ‘Sleeping Beauty’ and popcorn. If you’re not much of a tea drinker, fear not because they serve up the most uh-mazing freshly baked cakes and goodies everyday. Past creations have included: strawberry milkshake cake, Wagon Wheel cake, vegan Biscoff cupcakes, Red Velvet rose water cake and gluten free morella cherry bakewell cake.

Ever since I was a kid I wanted my own build-a-bear and at the grand age of 22 I finally got my wish. As a birthday treat my friend Amy and I headed to the Build-a-Bear Workshop in Southampton and I cannot tell you how excited I was to finally make my own bear.

I’m a sucker for collecting figurines, let alone when they’re as cute as Momiji’s*. Momiji’s are a series of adorable, handcrafted message dolls and let me tell you, they’re extremely addictive.
Each doll has it’s own little personality, a unique design and a list of things they like. This aspect really sets Momiji’s apart from other figurine series and helps to bring the characters to life. Take Blossom for instance (my first and possibly favourite Momiji). This adorable little doll is inspired by festival season with her cute flower crown and heart-shaped hand gesture all adding to her hippie personality. According to her box she likes “fairy bread and The Kinks”.

For someone who had never tried Japanese candy, I sure am getting my fair share recently. This month I tried the Japan Candy Box*, a subscription box that sends out a colourful selection of Japanese candy and snacks every month.
The packaging is adorable with lots of lilac, pastel pink and kawaii illustrations making the unboxing experience super exciting. In this month’s box there was 10 yummy treats to try and even though it’s called a candy box, there was actually a fab selection of both sweet and savoury snacks.

As you might’ve seen HERE I recently found an amazing kawaii shop called Tofu Cute. With so many adorable items available I couldn’t leave without buying a few little treats.
About 75% of Tofu Cute’s stock is candy. I’ve not really tried any Japanese candy outside of Pocky so I picked out a few. Firstly, a packet of cute looking, strawberry filled panda biscuits. I’m yet to try these because they look too cute to eat! There was also a fabulous range of mini Kit Kats, in lots of different flavours from Strawberry Cheesecake to Matcha Tea. With so much choice I panicked and went for grape -doh-. I’m sure I’ll go back and pick out a more appealing flavour another time.
