COCOSKIES | An art blog: Souvenirs



Souvenirs picked up in Japan & The Philippines.
1 & 2. I had to buy these sweets in Japan purely for the cute packaging!

3. A nice little ceramic dish also picked up in Japan. I loved the inky-blue colour and thought it would be perfect for storing my everyday jewellery in. The little, plastic macarons were bought in the Philippines from a stationery shop called 'Expressions'. Not quite sure what I'm going to do with them just yet. My watch was bought from Urban Outfitters last year. I wear it most days, so it's getting old but I still love the design.

4. Acrylic storage, brush pens and highlighters all from Muji.

5. I almost forgot to post about this, but just before I went away I won a giveaway by Jane. Thank you so much again! I love how much thought went into this package. I've loved the teas I've tried so far, but I'm trying to save each one as a treat so they last longer! (Emphasis on trying!) I've started reading the book too, I'm waiting for a quiet evening so I can really get into it!

6. One thing that was on my bucket list for Japan was to visit a Purikura booth. It's a photobooth on a different scale! You can go crazy with editing. The one we went in automatically made our eyes huge and dark. I thought I'd covered the photos with plenty of text and clip-art, but according to a friend who now resides in Japan there wasn't enough! I'll remember that for next time.

7. Everything together, plus my Butter Beer mug and ticket stubs from the Subway and USJ!
