May 2017 Subscription Box: Coffee Therapy

Java. Joe. Elixir. Life Blood. Morning Brew.
If any of these names sound familiar,  then you must be well aware of one of the most loved beverages in the world.
Some people drink it to keep themselves awake. Others drink it so they can function daily.
And there are those that drink it because...well they just love it.
Whatever the case, it is a moment during the busy day that most coffee drinkers look forward to.

We call it coffee therapy.

Our May box requires very little explanation. You either love coffee or you don't and we obviously do! 

This box includes a sticker set (yellow backed sticker is clear), rose gold bulldog clip, a roll of washi tape, a cute takeaway coffee cup charm and a coffee specific insert! 


EDIT 29/03/2017 : We are all sold out for this box! Please follow our instagram or facebook page or join our mailing list to be the first to get information on next month's box!!

Camera Leather Goods/Cafe - Tokyo, Japan

On a recent trip to Tokyo, The Coffee Drinker and I decided to check out Kuramae.

Our first stop was a lovely little leather goods/cafe called Camera

It was a quiet weekday morning when we went and we ordered and paid at the counter before taking our seats.
Since the cheese toast was prominently advertised at the front of the store, we ordered that, ginger ales as well as 2 spam musubis that were on display on the counter. We skipped tea/coffees because we were planning to have those later at a different spot. 

The tables were a bit small but it enjoyable to sit in the cafe, especially on a cold day, watch the cafe staff do their thing and admire the amazing leather goods. 

Food wise, the cheese toast was great but I can't recommend the spam musubi enough, I wish I had ordered a second serving! 

Stay tuned for more on Kuramae.

HOW TO: Washi Tape Twist Ties

Another easy tutorial to help you use up your washi tape stash (I know you have one XD)

Today, we are going to use them to make twist ties!

What you will need: wire, washi tape (and whatever you need to use your twist tie for.)

Cut a suitable length of wire and the same amount of washi tape. 

Lay the wire in the middle of the washi tape length wise.

Flip it over.  Cut the same amount of washi tape and repeat the step before.

To mix things up, you can use a different print piece of washi tape!

Perfect for little gift bags! 

Let us know in the comments how you go with this tutorial and what you do with your twist ties!

And as always, follow us on facebook and instagram to see more tutorials ^_^

The "toast" washi tape above is from our latest subscription box this month! Get yourself a box before we close the preorder ^^!

It comes in sticker only or a set with washi tape (1 of 2 designs will be given randomly)
