here are three magazines i bought the other day. two of them are interior design magazines to help with ideas and organization tips for your Japanese apartments. and the other one is a great mens fashion/life magazine with everything from clothes, food, grooming tips, hobbies, and entertainment.

(these first 7 pictures are from the mens magazine.)

(does this bonsai shop look familiar to you? its the shop in Tokyo called Sinajina that Iinekore mentioned in her trip to Japan, which was originally mentioned by the Tokyoite herself, Hikisan!)

(...and the rest of the pictures are from the interior magazines. i love all these living spaces. they remind me a bit of Muji, with it's simple layouts and emphasis on sunlit rooms with house plant decor)

today i need to: clean my room, do the laundry, water my plants, cook myself a nice meal, then maybe watch a relaxing dvd on this fine afternoon.

ps: thank you all for your amazing comments on my last post. it was sooo interesting to read all your little quirks about yourselves! some made me really laugh out loud! ...and also how majority of you are completely opposite from me when it comes to liking sweets! i cannot handle it! hahah, but i must admit, there is this amazing Japanese cheese-cake at this Japanese confectionery/restaurant that makes me melt inside. but thats only because it's not sweet at all! its very light and you can cut through it like tofu. おんなかすいた!
