The lovely chunky sparrow patterned pouch makes me very happy.

Also, it looks very useful because there are some dividers inside of the pouch.

All the dishes came together on afternoon tea plate stand! It was unique and cute.
(I couldn’t took a photo, please go and see that on their website if you interested!)

Of course we could choose their famous strawberry millefeuille for dessert.

Aroma Roll-On

I purchased a cute key chain-type roll-on aroma at PRIMAVERA.

The packaging was springlike and very cute.

It is quite handy as is small and can be taken anywhere.
After opening the cap and rolling on to the back of the neck or palm of the hands, a refreshing mint aroma emerges, leaving you feeling refreshed.

It is also great that it is approved as an organic product and kind to your skin.

I chose the white color sandals instead of tricolor colors one.
I love the white color which looks very cool for hot summer.
I can’t wait to wear them this coming summer!

cafe viet arco is a Vietnamese food cafe in Shimokitazawa. You can have good asian meals and sweets at there.
And there’s Vietnam beer, Shochu, and asian-arranged drinks.
It was a hot day, I ordered original non-alcohol mojito. So refreshed!

Art Tower Mito

I went to Mito to see the “Power Sources” exhibition by Gerda Steiner & Jörg Lenzlinger at Art Tower Mito.

Though rare for Japan, it was an exhibition where visitors are allowed to take photos, so I did so enthusiastically.

With lots of works featuring things like cell and mineral motifs, it was all very interesting.

There were many works that were to be appreciated through some form of participation, such as looking at them while sprawled in a bed or while sitting in a swing, so it was a very fun exhibition.

My friend and I went to Rose Bakery at Marunouchi for lunch.

We had eggs benedict and a quiche of pumpkin and ricotta cheese with 3 kinds of salads.

They were very good, and we shared a chocolate cake of olive oil with cafe latte.
