I just got back from my second trip to Niseko (Hokkaido) and boy, it was exhilarating to be skiing with a big group of people for one whole week. I get a lot of questions from friends, such as “You are going to Niseko again? Didn’t you go there last year?”, “You mean you just ski the entire week? Sounds torturous to me.”

Being born and bred in the tropics, we are probably very unfamiliar with winter sports given little or no exposure to it growing up. Through this post, hopefully I could help to answer questions you may have with regards to planning a ski/snowboarding trip.

Snowboarding (and skiing) is fun!

I have only one #OOTD to share for my recent winter holiday because truth to be told, I was in my ski gear almost everyday and there is almost zilch fashion brownie points from that everyday outfit. In case you think I’m committing a crime, hang on because this is exactly what a really famous style blogger said >> click (#namedropalert).

Anyway, I spent a day in Otaru to enjoy the fresh seafood and delectable pastries!

For a detailed destination guide on Niseko, please visit this post on my travel blog The T List.

It’s not like I have traveled extensively for holidays this year but I would like to recommend two locations as part of the ‘Best of 2014′ series. These two places are poles apart and would appeal to different preferences: Ko Lipe in Thailand for a beach getaway and Niseko in Japan for a taste of winter wonderland.

The New Yorkers went gaga over Topshop (according to the website, it seems like Topshop is slightly more expensive in the US than in Singapore). On the other hand, Singaporeans were waiting with anticipation for the arrival of Uniqlo. Miss Glitzy has not visited the store at Tampines yet. She has been diverting her attention towards Uniqlo Surprise and it should be renamed as “No Surprise” since she won that Special Edition Wallpaper yet again!

Anyway, let’s not digress. The topic of this post today is on Kawaii stuff. When Miss Glitzy was playing Poupee Girl, she spotted many kawaii cosmetic pouches at the jiten under the brand “Swimmer”. After researching on Poupee and googling on the Internet, she found out that Swimmer is a cute home, wear and accessories brand from Japan.

Some examples of really adorable items from the store:

Swimmer stores are available at various parts of Japan. When Miss Glitzy was in Japan last year, she visited the store in Parco Shibuya! The store exudes Japanese sweet lolita feel and sold loads of cute and sometimes outrageously girlish items! Some of the bags and pouches had really nice prints and the PVC/oil cloth material reminded Miss Glitzy of a more economical version of Cath Kidston.

Some cute bags from Swimmer:

Gosh.. they sell lounge wear too!

While some items fall beyond the cute tolerance of Miss Glitzy, Swimmer is still worth a visit if you are traveling to Japan. Miss Glitzy also thinks that strawberry headphones with strawberry USB mouse and strawberry bag make such an eye-catching combination. Kawaii neh!
