Hi kawaii + creative family!
Yesterday I left Japan to return home.
I am pooped! It’s been seriously action packed and go, go, go for two weeks straight (longer if you count my crazy schedule in the States 😁).
It’s been a great and productive go,go,go.
I was able to update my store before hopping on the plane in preparation for Small Business Saturday and Cyber Monday.
It’s my first time taking these shopping days seriously (why o why did I wait so long 😫😫😫), but I’m on a mission to make my concept shop come true.
Here are some shots of some of the #supportLIPS products.
I’ve also shared some super successful pillows that I did a while back for Waku Waku + NYC.
They went so fast ^^ (I’m really happy I grabbed mine for my stash) so I decided to do another run and place them on pre-order.
Tell me what yah think!
I made it to Narita airport in time for lunch and to roam around a bit.
From having to travel back and forth so much, I became familiar with the gate that I had to fly out from.
I remembered there were some really cool places there.
However, I didn’t realise that the small area was named Hokusai Plaza and featured some of Hokusai’s more popular works.
One store, where I would usually stop to get sweets, also has another cool temporary space, the Nippon Origami Museum.
We arrived in Detroit an hour ahead of schedule. I leisurely cleared customs and was off to gate A30. Since I had plenty time I roamed around … and to my surprise there was a Sanrio Store right there!
I’m so excited to share my travel successes with you but it’s a lot. So aside from the store, I’m going to slow down and take a good rest. I’ll be sure to share as much as I can starting from next week!
If you celebrate Thanksgiving, please have a happy one. If you don’t STILL have a happy one! While I don’t agree with the premise of how Thanksgiving came to be, I do believe in being thankful. Not just on a holiday named Thanksgiving though, but everyday!
So have a great one and enjoy whatever you choose to do with your day. I hope it’s filled with smiles ~
