What’s in my bag : Cafe Clutch edition

This photo was supposed to just go on instagram but I hate typing long descriptions on the phone so I’m cheating by posting it on my blog instead XD
If you tagged me on instagram, this is for you!

I didnt get round to getting a photo of the contents of my bag (yet! i’ll do that soon) but lately I’ve been working on a lot of reports so I’ve been spending a lot of time in cafes when I dont want to sit at home or be at the office. I dont bring my bag with me but I do carry a clutch of sorts.

Here’s a peek at the stuff I cart out when I want to sit down in a cafe.
bag

Hair things
Pictured : Parental Advisory Beanie (bought it in korea, no idea on brand), StyleNanda Headband, Random shiny floral hair tie
I carry a lot of hair accessories around. I think i must really dislike my hair being in my face when i work XD
Beanies are a must for me even in summer. I dislike getting my hair rained on XD I could carry an umbrella i suppose XD~

Lipstick
Pictured: NARS Schiap
Your girl has always gotta be on point XD

Stationery
Pictured: Liz Lisa X Hello Kitty notepad, Liz Lisa X Pentel Case + Pens etc
I heart stationery XD I cant say i am a huge Liz Lisa fan, i just happen to have a lot of it. No idea why XD

Food
Pictured: Calcium Wafer Biscuits, Sugar Syrup
I am always snacking HAHAHA its terrible.
I also dislike the gum syrup in some cafes so I actually bring my own XD~

Rest of the stuff

Spectacles - These arent for fashion. They are real prescription glasses XD

Apple MacBook Air - Well I am working on reports XD So i do need my trusty macbook air!

Neon Pink Clutch - This is almost 3 years old. When I first got it, I only used it once in a while but lately I find myself reaching for it rather often XD

There are obviously other things like wallet/keys/car keys/blah blah
I’ll try to do a pic of the contents of my actual bag soon

If you are reading, I tag YOU to do it. (instagram, twitter, facebook, blog, whereever, its up to you!)

Have a good week
XOXO Yumeko

Tsukuba Japan : Coffee Tribe Cafe

A while ago, I went on a roadtrip to Mito and on the way back we stopped in Tsukuba!
In accordance with my new cafe hopping hobby, we visited Coffee Tribe Cafe

Before I proceed! I am often asked where i locate these places. Well sometimes its word of mouth (friends) or internet review sites like (tabelog) or magazines!
In this case, this came from a magazine.

Coffee Tribe roasts their own coffee beans (thats kinda their first and foremost biz) and there is plenty to buy

And coffee makers/pots/etc for sale

They also have snacks, good for having with your coffee

And obviously they sell coffee

We got them in takeaway cups as there were no seats but once it was ready, the cafe practically cleared out

Not much seating here. Maybe 3 – 4 tables

Coffee was pretty good though I only had an ice latte (it was warm ok) and probably should have had an espresso to really tell. I liked what i drank though so thats good enough for me.

Many of you might have noticed these two little rambunctious ones on my instagram for a few months now
Well, they are actually handwarmers.

Both were presents from Korea and one is named Candy (white one) and the other KN. Since they are handwarmers, they are kinda heavy to lug around lol but i still do.
See their adventures on my insta. They pop up from time to time XD~

Happy Coffee Time!
