My Christmas List

My Christmas List is so small this year! I'm content with not getting anything at all to be honest. I'm already overjoyed with moving back to Japan 4+ months ago but having this be my first Christmas back in Japan in a very long time, I feel like my grandparents/family want to make it extra special. I'm fine with just the Christmas cake we ordered though, haha.

I've been wanting to get watercolors for a long time now. I used to paint with oil paints back in Minnesota but I lost inspiration & motivation so I stopped. But since moving back to Japan I've had a big urge to pick up water-coloring. I've also painted with acrylics back in the States but I didn't have too much love for that...

Another thing I've always wanted: a bicycle with a basket. It's such a Japanese thing to have here (haha), I want one of my own. I get so envious of young adult girls riding around with their bicycles...

Moving onto my last wish-list item, I really want a long feather down jacket. I've been eyeing this certain one from Uniqlo. I know I have plenty of jackets but not a long feather down jacket! I know this item can wait so I might hold off on it but it's such a temptation!

That's pretty much it! I also wouldn't mind getting anything owl, sheep, Totoro or Kiki/Jiji related!

What is on your Christmas List this year?


  1. Mine isn't too big either, have just asked for a filo fax or a diary and some CDs and beauty products. Have just discovered you blog, its lovely! xxxxx

  2. Daniel is! But he is indeed coming so I guess my big Christmas wish is coming true this year :-) Love the bike!
