littleloveshearts

Hey guys!

Sorry about Monday’s post. It’s the end of the school year over here and saying goodbye/planning lessons/CRYING my eyes out, coupled with a wicked bout of allergies kinda took all I had. D:

Sooo, let’s pick up with our weekly series with today’s Little Loves and Valentine’s Day chocolate! ❤ ❤
I mean, even if you don’t have anyone to give chocolate to or receive it from- Valentine’s Day is the BEST excuse to eat chocolate, no? 😍

I’ll do a separate post all about Valentine’s Day in Japan on Sunday, so stay tuned!

Hey guys!

One of the things I try really hard to do with this blog is keep the positive vibes flowing. I don’t really want to bring negative energy into the mix, because eww.

That being said, I feel I should warn you that today’s culture post is pretty heavy. It’s not negative really, but it’s something I feel you should all be aware of in the event that you travel to Japan or decide to live here. Unfortunately, when I first arrived I didn’t really have any idea that it would happen and I kinda wish I’d done a little more research.

This post is all about racism.
