Counting down to 2009!

I have finally received my craft supplies which I made the orders a week before Christmas. It took almost 2 weeks for them to arrive. I guess this is the busiest time for the Post Office!

I made these petite earrings yesterday, but I just put it on etsy this morning. I named these earrings "Petite Roses, Blue". They are so cute and dainty! I'm keeping one for myself. I will post the pictures later in my website, flickr, my facebook group and so on.

My sister and I are going to have some Ramen for dinner tonight. There's this store called Ajisen Ramen which is not very far from where I live. I always order Ebi fry ramen (deep fried shrimp) and seaweed salad. I like having hot meals during the cold weather.

New Year is coming soon! I'm counting down to the year 2009!

This blog is a journal of my creations, inspirations, some things I love and enjoy making.

The name Cocoa Chu Chu comes from my obsession with Cocoa. I love Cocoa beans and love drinking Cocoa. Chu Chu stands for kisses in Japanese. Basically, it is Cocoa XOXO in English :)

Merry Christmas & Happy Holidays


Christmas this year is very bright and sunny. It has finally stopped snowing although I expected some snow today. I just think that it should snow on Christmas!! Christmas and New Year is my favorite time of the year. It is somehow very inspiring! It's like the beginning of new things! Very exciting!!!

I decided to create some jewelries for my shop. I came up with a new pair of earrings and a very cute necklace this morning. I have to take advantage of a sunny day like this and take pictures of my new jewelries.

Sunday Brownies

Today is Sunday, I really wanted to go out but I couldn't get myself to because of a severe snow storm.Photobucket It is snowing too much lately around here. I believe the snow will be about 50 cm high by Christmas!Photobucket I even broke my boots the other day from walking in the snow! The bottom of my boots were made of plastic and they were not durable for such weather. The bottom of my boots were just broken in half! The worst thing is I just bought them less than 2 months ago T_T

Photobucket MTV Canada is playing the re-run of the Hills. I've never really watched the show, but since I'm stuck in my house, the show wasn't that bad after all. I also made some brownies. I found this recipe online. It turned out pretty good. I adjusted it a little bit though. I'm definitely keeping this recipe.

Happy Sunday!

I have recently tried a new hair color from Beauteen. It's from Hoyu company. I purchased this a few months ago and just got a chance to try it. This brand is very hard to find in Toronto. I personally prefer this brand over any other brands since the color comes out just like it promises. The one I bought this time is called French Beige. The photo on the right is what my hair is now.

For those who tend to have sensitive scalp might want to test the product on your skin first. I think the formula is kinda strong. My scalp was very itchy from times to times while coloring my hair!!

Time to go to bed.......Oyasuminasai

One lazy pet pup

Look how lazy my pet pup is. She is always sitting on my couch and she is too lazy that she needs a pillow to support her cute little face. This is my lovely puppy, she is a co-founder of Cocoa Chu Chu and also a spoke person (I mean bark person). She is very spoiled because I spoiled her :-)

Bath and Body Works

I have almost finished my Christmas shopping! I didn't spend a lot this year, well, maybe not yet. I'm very happy to hear that Bath and Body Works is now open in Canada! I have been a fan of Bath and Body Works. It is located at Yorkdale, nearby Mac Cosmetics.

I purchased a lip gloss at a very cheap price ($5). It tastes so good. I got the one with peach and mango flavored. Also I bought a body lotion gift set. This is not for me though, but they smell lovely that I have to go back there and get one for myself!! Christmas is coming near! I have to get into Holidays Spirit!

I have just moved my blog from Blogsome to Blogger. The reason I decided to move to Blogger is because Blogger has various communities that I'm interested in (crafts, handmade, and so on) and I wanted to be part of these communities. This is very exciting!!
I personally enjoy reading other people's blogs, but didn't really write much in my previous blog. I will try my best to keep my new blog updated often!!

Yoroshiku Onegaishimasu!!!
