..Gifts from Japan: Nintendo's Mario Retro Trump playing cards and stuffs..

Back to black!

I kind of miss my blond hair but it was time for me to move on something else as I am going to work soon (I'll be more specific about that later in this blog).
I haven't see my natural color for so many years... it was quite a shock at the beginning

On this picture I am drinking Starbucks' Chai Tea Latte Soja
It's so yummy and perfect for Christmas time!
My absolute favourite beverage for the season.

(Sorry for the stupid expression lol)

This Starbucks is quite special in Paris and I always go there when I need a cozy place to chat around with friends. It's the most beautiful in the city with its Baroque architecture: bold massing, ornamentations, colonnades, color intensity and effects!
How to go there:

26 Avenue de l'Opéra, 75001 Paris
Metro: Opéra (3, 7, 8, RER A)

On the second picture, you can see how comfortable the armchairs are

2 drawbacks though: most of the time you have to fight for a place because it gets really crowded, especially during holidays as it is located in a very touristic area. Also, the toilets there are small and not that clean

I went there with my boyfriend and 2 friends from my game development team (Koruldia).
It's a Pokemon-like game for PC and PS3 and we all work on it!I'll talk about it later on this blog.
From left to right: me (game artist), Kayser (project manager), Blue (game artist) and Dentelle123 (musician).

I haven't seen them since I left for Japan, so of course I brought presents with me!


A Nintendo's Mario 8-bits Trump playing cards, Limited edition

On the website, it says:
Mario and his friends represented in dots. We still love these characters: they are fresh and make us nostalgic.

I really like the details on every card. Have you noticed the plastic box with the logo?
It's an imitation of Nintendo's old game cases

Other gifts

Cute chopsticks with traditional Japanese rabit and flower pattern
Hello Kitty plushies (won in UFO catchers of course!)


  1. Wow, Paris Starbucks looks really impressive!:)
    Retro Mario cards and Hello Kitties are so adorable<3

  2. Yes you definitely have to try it if you visit Paris one day :)

  3. I think you look gorgeous with blonde AND black hair!
