Pin-spiration Thursdays: Indigo

pattern bowls | mix match tile | color hues | plate setting | indigo dye | knick knacks

It's been sooo long since i've done one of these pin-spiration posts but i think it's time to bring them back, don't you think? This particular post will most definitely make you obsess over this color combination i am currently in love with. These are actually the colors i'd like to use to decorate my living room but right now all you can see is mint, mint, mint and maybe a splash of gold. You want to know how obsessed i am? Well these are actually the colors of our christmas cards this year and i can't wait to get them in the mail, send them off and then share them with you guys <3. 

Also, I have been thinking of starting a little china collection with Japanese indigo pottery that i can mix and match with other white dishes and brown serveware. We'll see if i can get a pretty decent collection during our time here. 

Q: What color combinations are you currently obsessing over?

Snapshots at the Agena Central Park

Yesterday my lovely friend Kassie did me a huge favor and took some pictures of us at the Agena Central Park. We've been wanting to check this place out for the longest time, especially since it's only 2 minutes away from where we live but for some reason we hadn't made time for it until now. We were pleasantly surprised with how beautiful the grounds were and not only are there ruins of a 14th century Ryukyu Castle, but there is also a bullfighting ring. 

^^ yes, we climbed and walked on top of this huge wall but i'm so happy with how this picture turned out^^
^^ these are the steps where people sit during the bullfights, they sure made a beautiful backdrop. ^^

^^ Kassie brought these candy canes and it's safe to say these are my favorites. Hello Christmas cards. ^^

It was so much fun having our pictures taken, although we were sort of nervous at first and then we got a major case of the giggles, but i'm pretty sure we made Kassie laugh a lot. It also started raining as soon as we got there and the wind picked up which meant my hair took a turn for the worst but you can barely tell in the pictures! I'm hoping we can make this a yearly thing because it feels so good to have pictures to look back on, especially to remember our time in Okinawa.

Weekly Wishes: November Goals

Welcome to Weekly Wishes an awesome link-up created by Melyssa of The Nectar Collective, as a way to breakdown our own goals/wishes for the week, as well as share positivity and motivation to others. I really haven't participated since August.. and i've been a little abscent from this space but i'm hoping to get back into the swing of things this month. 

This month's goals: 

1. Catch up on blogging. I have been watching too much Netflix and not doing enough blogging; i also have tons of posts to catch up on so i really need to get up on it. 2. Finish the floating shelves. I'm making two floating shelves for our living room and i made one the same day i bought the wood but i haven't gotten around to do the second one. 3. Plan our trip to Taiwan. Gustavo and I are planning a little trip to Taiwan around christmas time, i have to sit down and figure out what we want to do and how long we want to stay. 4. Send our christmas gifts. This year we are sending gifts to our families back home and since the post office gets completely backed up around this time of year i want to send them as soon as possible. 5. Finally go to a flea market. We've had tons of stuff boxed up for MONTHS and i keep meaning to go sell them at a flea market but i keep putting it off. Perfect time to add it to the goals ;).

Fall Wardrobe: Wishlist

It's slowly, very slowly starting to feel a little cooler here and i just can't wait for this holiday season. I'm ready to break out the sweaters, the leggings, the boots and put away all the summer clothes. I've already started shopping for new fall pieces, like a pretty plaid button-up with small polka dots, a black and white circle skirt, an oxblood scarf, a little black dress, some cute sweaters and that gorgeous purse you see up there. I'm especially wanting a pair of ankle boots and i'll be checking out some local stores this weekend before shopping online. 

Is it already feeling chilly where you live?! What's on your fall wishlist?

Daydreaming of Hokkaido

Husband and I may be staying in Okinawa longer than planned, so of course this means we get to do more traveling! While Typhoon Vongfong was going crazy outside, i killed some time on Pinterest looking for place we'd like to travel to. As soon as i wrote 'Hokkaido' in the search bar and clicked enter i started daydreaming of this magical place. I told G that we definitely HAVE to make it here before we leave Asia. However we can't decide what time of the year would be better to visit because let's face it both Winter and Spring look absolutely stunning.

Q: Give us a hand, what time of the year do you think we should visit Hokkaido?!
