Weekend Trip to The Ghibli Museum

Hey Guys!
Sooooo.. it's officially 1 year since I've been in Japan. Yatta! We did it! (Alex and I)
I'll be doing a seperate post about my year thus far, and what I have planned for this upcoming year. So please, stay tuned.
This post will focus on my birthday weekend and what we did. :)
My birthday was March 6th. I didn't really do much, as it was a Wednesday, but I received a lot of fun stuff, including tickets to visit the Ghibli Museum. Which I've been trying to visit since last year.
Alex planned a day for us in Tokyo on March 10th.
Before visiting the the museum Alex surprised me with a stop to what seemed like the middle of nowhere. Upon arriving at Takaido Station we were greeted by a sand storm that seemed to be a spill over from China.


There Alex brought me to the cutest little shop that featured Totoro and other Ghibli characters all along the wall.

Alex ordered 2 of the cutest cream puffs I've ever laid on my eyes on.


We walked to Inokashira park, near Kichijoji Station, to enjoy our cute little treats.They were wicked yummy!! I really wish we order 4 instead of 2 :(


The Ghibli museum was fun but crowded. Unfortunately, we weren't allowed to take photos in the museum. The 9 minute featured film was cute and easy to follow, even though it was in Japanese.
I did however, take a photo with a Laputa Robot.
 

If you're fan of Studio Ghibli films, then this museum is a must if your visiting Tokyo or live in Japan.

Glossybox Japan vs. Prunusbox - February Edition

Hey Guys,

I recently did a video comparing my two monthly beauty boxes available here in Japan.
First we have Glossybox which is ¥1,575 and Prunusbox at ¥1,260
Do you remember me mentioning Tresor box a while back at ¥ 3000 per month? Yeah, unfortunately they didn't make the cut this time around. They are currently working on changing their game plan and will hopefully pop back in to the Japanese beauty box market later this year.

Here's the video I made comparing the two boxes:


And here's a photo of each box:


Who do you think won the battle of the beauty boxes?
Glossybox or Prunusbox?
