July Lifestyle Ideas

I apologize for such late ideas u_u

  • Add a bit of summer flair to an outfit with an over-sized handmade sea shell necklace
  • Try a tropical new flavor of tea like lychee nut or hibiscus mint 
  • On the subject of tea, check out this adorable strawberry tea leaf strainer!
  • Turn your favorite bakery item into an accessory! Etsy carries oodles of yummy cabochons suitable for pins, brooches, necklaces, earrings, rings and more!
  • Try a new style of make-up - blush near the corners of one's eyes is a popular trend in japan among many different styles ♥
  • One of my favorite places to shop for (super cheap) is Ebay! Most companies ship internationally and you can find mori-esque or even gift items from Japanese magazines ♪
  • Like air mail/par avion motifs? This Etsy seller creates wearable paper bows
  • One of my favorite ice cream flavors in Japan was local sea salt - while I can't find a recipe try experimenting with your own unusual flavors of ice cream, try different nuts or exotic fruits
  • Give yourself a honey facial ♥ It may be a sticky and a bit itchy but after 10-15 minutes your skin will feel baby soft. Honey also has wonderful antibacterial properties
  • If you are a fan of both Mori girl and Lolita fashion, consider checking out Midori's style book. I didn't know she liked "natural" fashion also ^_^ it's full of great style and beauty tips as well as cute tidbits from Midori
