If you follow me on Instagram (@zoe_schlacter), then you probably know that I spent most of the month of June in Asia! I was there for the release and promotion of the Candies x Girl with the Flower summer collection. Candies is a brand based in Hong Kong, so I spent most of my time there, but I also visited mainland China, Seoul, Taipei, and Tokyo! This was a very exciting opportunity for me, and I had a great time! Here are some photos from my trip:

 In Seoul, I visited a sticker photo-booth place! It was super cute! This is a picture of me decorating my photo-booth photos with stickers and text.

On the streets in Seoul

 One of the highlights of my trip to Seoul was a visit to a cat cafe. I'm a cat lover, and I had always wanted to go to a cat cafe! All the cats there were so nice and cuddly!

At a pretty boutique

Cute things I bought in Seoul: doll keychains, a few clothing items, a Murakami folder, and a ChooChoo cat card case

While in Taipei, I went to the Shilin Night Market. All of the above pictures were taken there. So many interesting things to see!

The tiger backpack I purchased at the night market!! A very exciting addition to my wardrobe!

From Taipei, I took a train to TaiChung to visit the Candies Gifts store. They have a shop cat, who is incredibly adorable!

I visited the Tamagotchi! Tamagotchis are my favorite toy/accessory. I purchased a new Tamagotchi with a matching lanyard, as well as some Tamagotchi stationery and stickers.

I got my nails done in Tokyo! I don't usually get acrylic nails, but I made an exception for this trip, because I really wanted to get a set of super cute Japanese nails! It's been four weeks, and my manicure is still going strong!

 I picked up these awesome drop-crotch pants at a boutique in Harajuku. I love pants with unusual silhouettes. These are a new favorite of mine!

 I visited the store Dog in Tokyo, and I met Hirari Ikedah! She's so cute!

These photos were taken at the Shinjuku Robot Restaurant, which was a crazy, awesome experience! I definitely recommend it to anyone taking a trip to Tokyo!

On my last day in Tokyo, I visited Tokyo DisneySea! It was magical!

In Shenzhen, I went to the Little Thing Magazine shop, which is full of so many beautiful things! I also got to meet Timmy from Little Thing, who was so kind! In this photo, we are wearing jewelry and purses from the Candies x Girl with the Flower summer collection.

Hong Kong
One of the most exciting moments of the trip! I got to see my window display installed at the Candies Gifts flagship store in Hong Kong!

I am so thankful for this wonderful experience! This trip inspired me in so many ways! I have returned home with many new ideas. I hope to visit Asia again soon!
