Korea Busan : Homestable Cafe

Today, I’m going to tell you all about an absolutely adorable cafe in Busan Korea.
I think this is my first post on Busan too (I’ll try to do more soon!)

The cafe is called Homestable.

It reminds me of the cafes one can find in places like Jiyugaoka in Japan.
But that’s not a bad thing either isnt it?

Lots of handmade details everywhere

A choice of teas is offered when you first sit down (if you wanted tea you can order from these)

We opted to have some hot drinks like milk and marshmallow because it was really cold that day XD

What we had! The most popular item on the menu! A cute little bento (comes with a salad side)

Isnt it cute?
Its been over 20 years since anyone made me a cute bento like this XD I’m always the one making it now so it was rather nice to have someone make it for me.
Unlike bentos I am used to eating in Japan, some the dishes in it are more Korean and some of them are spicy. I really liked this twist and hope to make one this way someday.

If you find yourself in Busan, do pay them a visit!!
Address: 부산 수영구 남천동 26-13 홈스테이블

Happy Eating!

BEAUTY : HELLO KITTY Makeup Removal Wipes

Sometimes I buy something just because its cute and honestly I have no idea if its going to work. I know i am not alone though XD
This falls into that category.
HELLO KITTY Makeup Removal Wipes

Ok first up, I have no idea who makes this XD~ I looked everywhere but i have absolutely no idea.
The box says the maker is Sanrio but I don’t know if there is another maker for the wipes XD
So instead, I’ll just tell you I bought it from Matsumoto Kiyoshi Drugstore (a chain found everywhere in Japan)

The lid opens to reveal the wipes on the inside. This is a refillable case and comes with a packet at the start.

The bottom of the case opens up [rubber lid] when you need to refill it.

Remove the sticker lid, cap it back up and you are good to go.

This product is made in Japan.

-the case is really cute so i can always find another brand to refill it with
-the case is small. Smaller than my iphone 6. [not as thin obviously) One can easily bring it on a trip
-the plastic lid ensures the contents dont dry out
-low price point [I got it for under 5USD for both case + wipes though I am not sure if this is the standard price]

-the removal wipes it comes with is not very good at removing the amounts of hardcore waterproof makeup i wear.
-the removal wipes are too thin.

Overall Thoughts: As you can see, I do like the case and the issues I have are pretty much directed at the wipes XD Therefore I feel pretty happy with my purchase XD i’m currently using these wipes to spot clean my makeup brshes after usage (this means i dont have to wash as often) and wipe down my table after putting makeup on. Once I am done with them, I will look for a new brand of wipes to refill the case with!

Happy Shopping!!
