July Lifestyle Ideas

I am in love with this IW print!
  • Add a bit of summer flair to an outfit with an over-sized handmade sea shell necklace
  • Try a tropical new flavor of tea like lychee nut or hibiscus mint 
  • On the subject of tea, check out this adorable strawberry tea leaf strainer!
  • Turn your favorite bakery item into an accessory! Etsy carries oodles of yummy cabochons suitable for pins, brooches, necklaces, earrings, rings and more! You can easily make inexpensive maching accessories for sweets prints or otome coods
  • Try a new style of make-up - blush near the corners of one's eyes is a popular trend in japan among many different styles ♥
  • One of my favorite places to shop for (super cheap) is Ebay! Most companies ship internationally and you can find plenty of loliable items or even gift items from Japanese magazines ♪
  • Like air mail/par avion motifs? (hint hint, IW's new print) This Etsy seller creates wearable paper bows
  • One of my favorite ice cream flavors in Japan was local sea salt - while I can't find a recipe try experimenting with your own unusual flavors of ice cream, try different nuts or exotic fruits
  • Give yourself a honey facial ♥ It may be a sticky and a bit itchy but after 10-15 minutes your skin will feel baby soft. Honey also has wonderful antibacterial properties
  • Check out this translated interview with Kyary Pamyu Pamyu ♥
