Hello everyone! Recently I have been getting a lot of mails about what happened and if I decided to stop blogging about Korea since I am currently in LA while Nara works at Disney on “Big Hero 6″ (go see it soon!!) Last year they hired him to animate on the project so we packed up everything and came back to the states! I just wanted to say that I am STILL going to blog and I still have a huge amount of backlog posts that I am always talking about, plus on a normal year we do visit at least once for a month so I am bath and forth to Korea even though we changed locations! This Oct 25th Nara and I are finally getting married in LA, followed by a Korean wedding in Seoul on Nov 15th. Nara has been super busy with work, so I have been doing the wedding things on my own so it is sucking up a HUGE amount of my time ~_~ I am sorry! I have also started my home business back up selling art as Miss Kika (www.misskika.com) and have had an exciting year selling paintings and making shirt
Are you visiting Korea soon and looking for all sorts of cute stationery and misc treasures, but are not sure where to start or want something a step up from Daiso? Not to worry! Korea has a very popular chain of shops that specializes in adorable goodies called ARTBOX that is a go-to place for any cute tidbits you may need!
Those of you that read my blog know that I am a HUGE fan of the Korean brand Choo Choo Cats by Jetoy~ arguably one of Korea’s cutest original brands that had found a fair share of success abroad in places like Japan! Well I have wonderful news for fellow fans, Choo Choo Cats is FINALLY getting proper USA distribution at last! YES!!!
This year for my birthday Nara asked me if I wanted to do anything special like go to a theme park or visit someplace in particular. We both had a lot going on at the time, so I wanted to just have a simple outing that we both could enjoy quietly in Seoul~ so why not something crafty!?
Today I have another favorite Korea shopping spot of mine that many visitors would not think to spend much time in~ Gangnam Station! Yes that is right, the metro station in Gangnam has some amazing shopping for the newest trends on a very modest budget. I find MANY of my 10,000 won treasures here at this station, which is funny since Gangnam is known for being “expensive” on the outside.
Today I have a new adorable Korean brand to share with you, my lovely readers! This is a new hit shoe brand with girls in Korea and is a shop I instantly fell in love with when they first started popping up around Seoul around 2010~ welcome to the romantic vintage world of Le Bunny Bleu! Adorable shoes every girl needs in a range of yummy colors!
