Chloe: Faye Suede Wallet Bag


Oh, so cute!

After weeks of debate, I finally decided to take the plunge and get Chloe's Faye Wallet bag. Now, I'm partial to certain luxury brands when it comes to bags (or anything I own in general). Since they're an investment, I can't just splurge on bags randomly. I kept going back and forth on which bag I was about to purchase.

In the end, I went with this cute baby~


The style matches my typical preference when it comes to purchasing these types of bags. 

If there's one thing that concerns me, it's the suede part. I had to learn (the hard way, for real) how to clean these up first and foremost. Apparently, it does not do well with water. I think I'll purchase a suede brush at the mall tomorrow for precaution. For me, I don't like much upkeep when it comes to any item I own. As I'm always on the go and moving about, I think it's important for goods to adapt to my lifestyle so bags that need to be protected... I avoid them completely. 

Unless I like the design.

I couldn't resist this one! I found the design and metal clasp too cute! 

As I dress up quite casually, I think this will fit any of my clothes.

Which, let's face it... if I buy something expensive, I better get my money's worth!



The inside is enough for me to put in some alcohol wipes and money. It can also probably fit in my YSL card case (which, really, is all I need in a day!). I don't like carrying too much stuff as it's a burden. I like to be able to walk freely! <3

That's it for this entry! Do I recommend this bag? Yes, if you're like me who just carries her phone and carry essentials!

Have a wonderful day!

Saiyuki Reload Blast Cafe at Adores Ikebukuro!

Ehhhhh, arms, whadduppppp?

How is it June... I don't know. I recently just got back from Tokyo but already am bombarded with so much work. Still, I want to do well in all my endeavours. But at times, I can feel so detached from the process and just proceed with doing things for the sake of completing them. 

I'll do a post regarding what's going on in my personal life. Not that it's anything that deep, sentimental or whatever. If there's one thing I noticed with my blog is that I haven't been speaking on anything else but anime cafes. Which to be fair... is kind-of a huge chunk of my job at HC, ya know? Lately, I've just been hanging out with my friends and family and working on several projects in between. Everyone (well, including myself) has been doing well so that's a relief.

In any case, I'm going to convert HC into a more personal space for me while still retaining its original nature. I feel that 2018 is going to bring me a lot of opportunities to do so. And it's certainly long overdue.

For now, I just want to talk about the Saiyuki Reload Blast cafe at Adores Ikebukuro... which I visited... last February / March? Oh, God, this is what happens when you're too busy!


I used to be so obsessed with this series when I was in Grade 5. My seat mate Katherine (or Katz) and I would often watch it and talk about it the next day. She liked Sanzo a lot and even bought a necklace that would resemble his beads. 


Honestly, I'm not entirely sure about the series. But that's because I haven't passed the 5th episode mark so. *shrugs* 




SO NOSTALGIC!


The merch was totally cute for this series. Naturally, I wanted Hakkai. Thankfully, the girls there were more than kind enough to trade with me as I kept on getting Sanzo and Gojyo. There was this girl that traded with me more than once, haha! I also asked for her cute Goku (the one who was so full!) <3 I met an older lady who liked Sanzo and gave her my coaster.





The menu was short and sweet. Pretty cheap, too, considering Adores does border on the expensive side at times.




Let's get started on the food!


My orders were a little too green! ;;;


DID I SUBCONSCIOUSLY DO THIS FOR HAKKAI!?

I dunno, probably... *Sweats*


Well, that's to be expected because I love Hakkai.

Though in retrospect, he does freak me out now...


This avocado and shrimp rice bowl was good. I'll give them that.


And my Mom bought some dessert~

I hope everyone's doing well!
