My favourite thing about emoji is how they mean slightly different things to different people. So here's what I'm really saying.

    I'm happy but I don't want to be dramatic about it.

    😬
    I should be embarrassed about this but I'm kind of not

Some more secret than others. I just like surprises!
  1. β€’
    A new Pinterest account for Super Cute Kawaii βœ”οΈ
    This was only a secret because I didn't want anyone to follow it while I repinned 2000 images from the old board we were using.

    My August paper craft tutorial βœ”οΈ

    A collaboration zine with one of my best friends
    We've been talking about it for years and I think it's actually going to print this weekend!

    Pentel sign pens
    For general writing. So happy to finally have the full set of colours 🌈

    Favourite pens and pencils
    L-R: drawing pen, adorable Sumikko Gurashi mechanical pencil (mostly for photos), Rilakkuma pencil, pop-up Sharpie
  3. β€’
    Coloured pencils - mostly Durer, sorry Caran D'ache
    Pencil sharpeners are for losers - a knife is much better.

I was in Oban for a week with my family and we had the best time. So many amazing views so close to home.
  1. β€’
    Oban harbour
    The first evening was glorious - if Scotland was like this all summer no one would go abroad.
  2. β€’
    Oban marina
    First ferry pic of the week.

Inspired by everyone. Someone should cross reference these in a database for future use.

    The Apollo moon missions
    This came up in the final of Pointless recently and I got three pointless answers without even thinking too hard

This was my dad's idea of a fun birthday outing - a two hour walk in the rain. And it was fun!

    Kerrera is a little island just off the mainland near Oban. You take this tiny ferry.
    One of my favourite UK road signs there too.
  2. β€’
    It can only take 12 people
    It was just us and the postie
  3. β€’
    There's basically nothing on Kerrera except sheep, cows, a handful of people and a cafe.
    It was very wet and windy but look at that turquoise water!

I went to Hyper Japan in London for the first time earlier this month and it was so much fun! It's a big Japanese culture and kawaii event.
  1. β€’
    I was a VIP 🌟
    It was just supposed to be a press pass but this made us seem much cooler.
  2. β€’
    Harajuku fashion show with Kurebayashi
    She's a Japanese model/singer/artist and put together outfits for all different fashion styles that are popular in Japan. Everyone was so kawaii.
  3. β€’
    I got a pin of her too

I was looking through my photos and apparently I do this a lot. Also I was really ill this weekend and need a reminder that food is not out to kill me.

Kew Gardens is a big botanical garden in London that's been around since 1789!
  1. β€’
    It wasn't supposed to rain but it did quite a bit. I didn't mind too much as it was quieter and not too hot.
    Also I wouldn't have been able to take this lovely photo without the rain!
  2. β€’
    We ate some cake (I had lemon and courgette - it was really nice!) and then hid in the glass houses for the worst of it.
  3. β€’
    So much colour!

Inspired by @Diplomatic_diva and everyone else
  1. β€’
    New Balance trainers
    These were expensive for me but still going strong 18 months later! I love the colour combination.
  2. β€’
    Teva sandals
    I wear sandals for a surprisingly large percentage of the year, considering I live in Scotland. These are a bit ugly but really walkable.
  3. β€’
    Birkenstocks
    I've had these forever - maybe 10 years? Great for a quick run to the post office or putting the bins out.
