A couple months ago I mentioned on Instagram that I was trying out the Etude House Bubble Tea Sleeping Pack, and someone asked for a review! Well, I’ve never delved into the world of skincare reviews before, but why not? I know navigating the world of skincare can be pretty hit-or-miss, so if my impressions of a product can help someone out, then I’m happy to oblige!
Over the past year, I’ve started sharing videos of how I decorate my Hobonichi Techo over on my Youtube channel! Have you watched any of them? I’m really enjoying journaling, and knowing I’m going to share my pages with you all keeps me motivated to continue with it!
Today’s video is related to this, but it’s not a Hobonichi Techo video. Rather, it’s a video of my travel journal! It’s much easier to take a small notebook than a large Hobonichi Techo when traveling, so I decided to try it out when I went to the USA to visit my family last month. Check out my video to see how I filled it out!
What do you think? I had so much fun making this journal that I’m going to bring it with me on my trip to Japan next week, too! It’s a great way to preserve memories and little trinkets such as ticket stubs that you pick up along the way. Why not try making a travel journal the next time you go on vacation?

Though not technically a Japan exclusive, I first became aware of coffee-flavored Coca-Cola when it started making the rounds in Japanese vending machines. Coffee soda?! Of course I had to try it! It wasn’t something I ever thought I wanted, but as an avid coffee fan and connoisseur of interestingly-flavored Japanese snacks, I had to see how it tasted for myself!

Danganronpa V3: Killing Harmony, the forth game in the Danganronpa series, was probably my most anticipated game of 2017. After I was gradually won over by Danganronpa: Trigger Happy Havoc back in 2014 and then falling completely love with Danganronpa 2: Goodbye Despair, the series is now one of my favorite video game series of all time. But as impressions from Japanese players started trickling in, it became clear that Danganronpa V3 was going to be the most divisive entry in the series yet. Would it deliver for this longtime fan of the series? Read on to find out!
