Check out my "travel" tab to get a glimpse at my Japan trip I recently took. I had so much fun and I cannot wait to visit again. Actually.....I want to apply for a green card right now and live there :( everything is so perfect there. Only problem is, I don't know any Japanese. So, I guess I am stuck is America, sadly! Anyway, I wanted to share with y'all a Japan haul with all the goodies I purchased during my trip.
SO.MANY. SNACKS. everything purchased in these two photos were all super cheap. I shopped at Daiso, and everything in Daiso is $1.00. So, I decided I wanted to spend my money on Japanese snacks and give it all a try. Standing in the isle deciding what to buy was the hardest. I had no idea what I was grabbing and putting in my shopping basket, but I think that's the fun part.
Just admire the packaging, I love it!
Since I got back, I still haven't had the chance to sit down and try every snack. I am excited to see what all these snacks are all about.
P.S. if you ever go to Japan, shop at Daiso. Daiso has everythinggggggg all for $1.00. Almost like a Dollar Tree but wayyyy better!
GIFTS TO GIVE!
A few gifts I got for my close peeps back home.

FAVORITE OUTFIT OF THE WEEK
WHAT AM I WATCHING?
FRO-YO AND AÇAÍ BOWLS?!
On a hot day, it's always nice to cool down with a little treat, but not just any treat.
I recently went to Ala Moana to try out Pressed Juicery, located near Shirokiya. Pressed Juicery is a vegan gluten free high-end regional chain carrying cold-pressed juice and juice cleansings for the body. With so many benefits the juices are known to bring to the body, I will definitely have to go back and try one…well, maybe I want to try one because the bottle is very aesthetically pleasing to my eye. But this trip, I decided to try out their dairy-free, gluten-free Matcha Almond Freeze, same consistency as fro-yo but the healthier version of it. There were many different options to choose from, but I am one of the few who loves matcha and thought I’d give it a try. My Matcha Almond Freeze was topped with coconut, granola, and drizzled with honey to add a kick of sweetness to the matcha. The first bite I took, I could definitely taste the “healthiness” of it, but it grew on me after each bite I took.
Being my first time to Pressed Juicery, the ultimate question is; will I go back? The answer to that question is, yes, I definitely will! It was very soothing and definitely cooled me down on a hot Hawai’i nei day!

island vintage shave ice
That same day, my boyfriend was with me and he wanted to get an Açaí bowl. We made our way to Island Vintage Shave Ice, located in the new Ewa wing at Ala Moana. He ordered a Coconut Açaí bowl. Let me just stop here and ask you, have you found the perfect Açaí bowl?! If you haven’t been satisfied with your previous Açaí bowls and if you’re ever in the area, I highly suggest you stop off at Island Vintage Shave Ice to order yourself one.
As I am writing this I am wishing I had another one to enjoy. This Açaí bowl was too. die. for. There are literally no words to describe how amazing it was. For the quantity, it was definitely worth the price and deserves a lot more hype.
I will just have to tell y’all, you’ll have to see for yourself, but for now, I will leave the picture here.
