Let's celebrate Valentine's day the Japanese way!

This morning, when I went to Starbucks, here in Japan around my place, I looked around the store and noticed one very important thing....Heart shaped stickers were on the walls, windows and even on the barista's apron.  Yes, tomorrow is Valentines Day and people express their love by sending flowers and greeting cards to each other.

But in Japan, they celebrate it differently.  February 14th is the only day in the year that girls can confess their love to their “valentines” and to express their feelings, they give boys chocolates.  (God only knows why it has to be chocolates…) I remember in my school days, boys would be so nervous and wondering how many chocolates they would get on that day.

Girls, if you haven’t decide what you want to do for Saint Valentines-day, why don’t you celebrate in the Japanese way? 
Let’s go get some baking kits, but what if you're a lazy girl like me?  Well you can always get a bag of M&M’s and spread the love.

Grab your instax mini and get great shots to remember this loving moment!

Happy Valentines Day everyone!

Thirty Sundays in New York: January

When we first featured photographer Veronica Sanchis Bencomo on the blog, we loved seeing her collection Thirty Sundays around London.
Now Veronica has moved to New York and has started her Thirty Sundays project once again and we decided to join her on this adventure.

Every month we’ll post the Sunday photos Veronica has taken and see the transition of her life in the Big Apple.

"Having found myself move to the Big Apple recently, I thought to explore it with a camera in my hand. I decided to repeat my Thirty Sundays project, this time in New York. This new project is set more or less under the same grounds as the previous one, one Polaroid every Sunday during thirty weeks. However, this time I have changed the camera to Fujifilm Instax 210. This camera, unlike my previous one, Fujifilm Instax 7S, has more controls, such as, two focusing settings and lighting options also the photo itself is slightly bigger. The project is an experimentation with no overarching theme. It has been done under certain rules set by me and the limitations of the instant camera. "  Says Veronica.

Here is Thirty Sundays in New York

Agenda Show

After a grueling hour drive from Hollywood, we finally arrived at the Agenda Show in Long Beach.  Once inside we wandered around, mainly from being lost and not being able to read a simple map, but also in awe at the 750+ brands that was there.

Agenda Show started in 2003 with 30 brands and has now grown into a massive trade show that features over 1,000 brands in Long Beach, New York and Vegas.

Each brand at Agenda has their own creative look, promo, style etc. and we fell in love with a few brands.  Some new and some well known.

New Reads: Gather Journal

Gather Journal is a recipe-driven magazine dedicated to the aspects of gathering: to dine, drink, harvest, and cook. Designed to inspire and to last.

This Spring/Summer 2014 desert issue, uses the keyword "Caravan" as a guide to spark creativity in an array of recipes using ingredients from the desert inspired by destinations near and far.

Being passionately curious about food, I always plan my trips around tasting new dishes and cuisines shared with others. Food tastes better on an adventure. Picture this: You're resting in a blanket underneath the night sky, listening to the quiet symphony of the desert. Your hunger gives you perspective on the world.

Below are some food and drink recipes I found interesting:

Whether you turn to the desert for an oasis or a retreat, it brings you closer to reflect on the outdoors and the nature within yourself.

If you want to purchase Gather Journal, stop by Hennessey + Ingalls or shop online.
