Lucky clover

My sister found a four leaf clover while walking our puppy. It is the eight time she found 4-leaf clovers, so she gave it to me. I'm so jealous. I've never found one! I tried looking for lucky clovers all the time, but never ever found one.

I happen to have a lovely lucky clover charm necklace in my shop. It is as cute as a real four leaf clover and doesn't wilt. I carry good luck charms from times to times when I need some encouragement. I guess I'm kind of superstitious after all...ha!

Homemade pizza

I made pizza for lunch today. I've been craving pizza for the whole week. I found this homemade pizza dough recipe on the website and decided to make it myself. The recipe was very quick and easy to make. While I was making the dough, I thought I was running out of flour. I ended up using the entire flour I have left in the pantry.

It was fun making something together with my family. We were nervous whether the pizza will turn out alright. The pizza is absolutely amazing. This recipe is such a keeper. Bye bye to take out pizza :)

Photo shoot / DIY

It's super windy today in Toronto. The wind just makes my hair goes crazy! It's just too cold this year. I miss a nice warm sunny day. Boo.

I just finished taking photos for my new necklace. I haven't come up with a name for it yet. I used eco-friendly/recycle props I found around my house.

These roses are from my sister's graduation just a few months ago. Drying flowers are actually very easy to make. Here's the how-to link.

I put these dry roses on the hallway next to a photo frame. It looks great together!

My favorite things

I'll be blogging about TEA today. Having tea everyday in the afternoon seems like a ritual for me. Yes, I'm addicted to tea. I guess I need to have some caffeine in my system to get things started.

My favorite kind of tea is Green tea. The best I had was when I went to the temple in Kyoto and they offered free green tea. It was so light, clean and smooth. I wish I could make tea like that some day :)

I bought an Earl gray tea from Harney & Sons the other day at Indigo. First because I love drinking it, and second, I think I could use the packaging as a prop for my etsy store.

I have recently received a tea pot as a birthday gift from a really good friend. Look how cute it is! It has little strawberries pattern on it and the BEST thing is that it's a cup in itself! How convenience! I've never seen anything like this before. My friend knows that I'm tea crazy! It's sure a handy gift for me!

Love at first bite

For today's lunch I had Okonomiyaki. Okonomiyaki is one of my favorite food, second to Takoyaki. I went to Osaka in April and tried one of the Okonomiyaki restaurants around Namba. I was a little bit disappointed, though. The batter was too soft than the usual Okonomiyaki, but Yakisoba there was to die for. I ended up having 2 orders of Yakisoba myself hahaha.

By the way, I got featured again by window seat books . The theme was How to enjoy a nectarine (lovely!). My plumeria blooms got featured in there. I'm so happy. This is the 2nd time I got featured in one week, Yay!
