:: about us ::

hello. im zhing and i love cotton candy, the smell of rain and everything ballet. im madly in love with my husband daniel. he loves boy gadgets, running and bubble tea. welcome to our little projects in love and in life! :)

we've been really lucky in our lives and have had the opportunity to live in a whole bunch of awesome cities. we moved to tokyo late last year for a new adventure and boy has it been one so far! we adopted our little puppy, musashi, and despite his doggie farts and hissy tantrums, we adore him to bits!!

i once was a wedding planner but am taking a short hiatus to learn more skills and explore the world a little bit more. i still have a soft spot for glamourous ceremonies, beautiful stationery, flowers and romance.

this blog was initially intended as a personal journal to my friends when i first moved to switzerland for grad school. but six years later, it has become so much more. it now documents things that i love, crafts, our travels, our family, our love story and endless things that make me laugh. and for that im very grateful.

i hope you enjoy visiting my blog and that somehow it inspires you to love your life, your family, crafting and photography a little more. 

if you have any other questions, feel free to drop me a comment or a note::

  10. Hey Zhing

    My name is Joe Pinzone and I'm casting an international
    travel show about expats moving abroad. We'd love to film in Japan and wanted
    to know if you could help us find expats who have moved there within the last
    15 months or have been there for 3-4 years, but recently moved into a new home.
    The show documents their move to a new country and will place the country in
    fabulous light. The contributors on the show would also receive monetary
    compensation if they are filmed. If you'd like more information, please
    give me a call at 212-231-7716 or skype me at joefromnyc. You can also email me
    at joepinzone@leopardusa.com.
    Looking forward to hearing from you.


leave me a little love note. xx
