I swear I’m going to buy Muji gel ink pens in all the colors available! They’re really nice, and the ink doesn’t skip (I dunno what to call this, but it’s when the pen doesn’t write properly, lol). The only downside is that it tends to run out of ink fast. Still, it’s worth it, considering that it’s just the way I like it—simple and functional.
Pretty notebooks with yellow-ish paper
I almost never buy notebooks with white paper, unless I absolutely need to. I just love notebooks like this one! Actually, this was a gift from my friend during my birthday. It’s so cute, I never used it. Mehehe :’) I have a lot of yellow-papered notebooks at home which I have as my collection. Also, another reason why I like this so much is because it isn’t ruled. I tend to not follow the lines on notebooks anyway, so I prefer unruled ones. By the way, if you want one like this, the artist who made this is indicated on the lower right photo.
This was given to me by a friend during high school. It came with Ferrero Rocher chocolates, which are obviously gone by now. I was planning on making my own origami, but since I don’t have much time, I just used these ones. Well, they’re pretty anyway, so why not? Next time, I’ll try taking a photo of Tori, the chicken origami I gave to Christiane 🙂
Whenever I go to Timezone with my friends, I always make sure to take a picture at the photobooth. Here are some of the photos I’ve collected so far. (Of course, they’re still sort of private, so I purposely made them out of focus.) I made a promise to myself that from now on, I’ll try to take more photos to immortalize those wonderful moments.
Along with yellow-papered notebooks, I also collect sticky notes or post-its. Like the notebooks, I never use them unless I have two or more of the same kind. I only included some of them here because I got lazy, haha! The last time I fixed my collection, I realized that I have a few to spare so I decided to give them as freebies in my shop. Half of those above were given by my lovely friends ♥
Hair ribbons like this one are just so cute! I’d love to have a lot of these, but I honestly don’t know where to buy them 😦 Most of what I see are either “jeje” or too expensive. Well even if I do have a lot of them, I won’t be able to pull them off as cute as the one above because I have a lot of baby hair and they’d be poking all around. Trust me, it makes me look like I just woke up and didn’t even bother taking a bath. *sigh
I know polka dots are a New Year’s thing, but I love wearing them even if it isn’t New Year yet. They’re so adorable, like cute babies or something. I’m actually thinking of buying a lot this coming Christmas, so I could use New Year as an excuse to wear polka dots anytime I want (in January, at least). Oh, diba?
Stylish pen cases
When it comes to pen or pencil cases, I look for simplicity and functionality as usual. I like the zippered ones that are made out of cloth because they look stylish and somewhat cutesy. The one I have now is from Kara Nina, but it’s kind of old already, so I didn’t bother taking a picture. I’m planning to replace it with a similar type, but with a different design. Still from Kara Nina, of course. I love the designs, and they aren’t even that expensive. I’ll take a photo once I’ve bought a new one.
Really thin mechanical pencils
I have small hands, and I find it difficult to grip the mechanical pencils here in the Philippines. from what I’ve noticed, most of the ones sold here are a bit too big for my hands (Plural. Yes, I’m ambidextrous). That’s why I was really happy when two of my Korean friends gave the thin mechanical pencils pictured above. I included the big one that was given by my friend from Japan as a reference so you could see how thin the pencils are. I also love the pink one because it’s scented! I’m hoping to collect more from other countries 😀
It’s kinda ironic that I like buying cute stickers, notebooks, and post-its, yet I never use them. They’re just so cute! I feel like it would be a total waste to use them. Maybe one day, I’d get over this craze and finally decide to create a scrapbook or something, just so I could use them instead of letting them rot to eternity.
I’ve always loved Skullcandy earphones. They look really nice and aren’t as pricey as other earphones. The one on the left was the first one my dad ever bought for me, though I think it was green instead of blue. The other one is the most recent one that my dad gave me, but it got broken just a few weeks ago 😦 Actually, only one side was broken, but I don’t think I’d still be able to fix it. And since I’m too kuripot, I’ll just wait for the day that I get a new one. Hehe
Hand creams that smell like baby powder
Baby powder smells so clean and fresh. That’s why I like hand creams with the same smell, just like this Missha hand cream that my Korean friend gave me as a pasalubong when he went back home. In case you want to know, the exact scent is Peony Rose.
Tony Moly nail polishes
I find Tony Moly nail polishes great, so I buy there. I haven’t really tried a lot of brands, but since I’m already satisfied with this one, I didn’t bother anymore. The one pictured here is my favorite among all the colors they have. This one could be used as a base coat or french tip. It looks very clean and simple, not too intimidating like other loud colors are. They’re a great find at only 90 pesos.
There’s nothing like a quiet room and soft pillows after an exhausting day. There’s actually something called pillow lust (look it up at the Urban Dictionary). It’s when you’re a student and you’ve been studying for so long, you just want to slam your face into the pillow and doze off. It’s exactly how I feel right now while finishing this blog. Good thing I’m almost done; I’ll have that pillow lust satisfied in no time.
Kingdom Hearts was my childhood game, so I guess you’ll understand why I like things that are shaped like the Keyblade. I used to have a necklace of this during high school, but I have no idea where it is now. I also tried making one, which I’d rather not talk about. Haha. Anyway, whether it’s a Keychain, a necklace, or any replica, as long as it’s a Keyblade, it’s sure to catch my attention.
