💚 Unboxing GOT7 Photocard Collection Book 💚




Whilst out browsing one of Bangkok's many cute stationery shops I noticed that they had these adorable folders for displaying your K-pop photocards, the ones I saw were specifically for NCT and so I was really hoping that one of the amazing fan artists here would produce a GOT7 one and ... THEY DID! So of course I ordered one ASAP and it finally arrived so I thought I would show you all what it looks like.








The artwork for the collect book was done by one of my favourite Thai fan artists Bim and in a carnival style that matches the 2021 calendar I bought from her from to. I love that it features not only GOT7 but their pets to and of course an ahgase, it's such a cute touch. The collect book also came with a postcard, keychain, sticker and standee of my bias Jackson dressed as one of my favourite (and Jackson's) Disney characters Buzz Lightyear which was I loved so much and you can also purchase these character sets separately from the collect book to if you want to collect all the members dressed as Disney charcters, Jinyoung as Mickey and Jaebeom as Stitch are sooo cute!!


These collect books are such a cute idea and really nice for displaying your photocards, I'm not much of a photocard collector so I decided to use mine to mostly display my concert tickets. I do however have a separate card wallet full of Jackson photocards I have collected so I may get a separate folder especially for him in the future and I would love to get one for my Day6 collection to. So if you're looking for a cute way to keep your precious K-pop photocards then you should definitely get yourself a cute collect book!


How do you like to display your photocard collection?
Love & Ahgabongs

🍫 Chocolate Banana Cupcakes 🍌 (VEGAN) 🌱


My baby cousin LOVES chocolate so I thought I would create a cupcake recipe just for her but try to make it a little bit healthier as it's not good to feed a 4 year old too much chocolate! For this recipe I tried out a couple new vegan products, the Nature's Charm chocolate syrup made by one of my absolute favourite vegan cafes in Bangkok and some new plant-based milks that were on offer at the supermarket, but if you can't find these brands don't worry you can just use any chocolate syrup and milk or instead of the syrup just use cacao powder instead for a less sweet version.

Ingredients
  • 1 cup mashed banana
  • 1/3 cup chocolate syrup
  • 1/3 cup melted coconut oil 
  • 1/2 cup chocolate milk 
  • 1/4 cup coconut sugar or brown sugar (optional)
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 1 + 1/3 cup of all purpose flour
(Makes 10)

♥ Preheat and oven to 180 & line a cupcake tray with 10 cupcake cases

♥ In large bow mix together the mashed banana, chocolate syrup, chocolate milk, coconut oil and sugar, if you don't want the cupcakes to be too sweet then you can leave out the sugar.

♥ Sift in the flour and baking powder and mix it into a smooth batter.

♥ Divide the batter equally into the cupcake cases and bake in the oven for 15 - 20 minutes.

♥ Once baked removed the cupcakes from the oven and allow them to cool on a wire rack.

♥ Eat and enjoy!

Let me know if you try these out and what you think.
Good Luck

💚 Unboxing GOT7 K-pop Pins & Delicious GOT7 Tarts 💚


This year I decided to make a bigger effort to support more smaller businesses and instead of buying GOT7 merch from big heartless companies to instead support my fellow Ahgase and their beautiful artistic creations which are 100% made with love. There are honestly so many amazing artists out there making so many beautiful items that really need your support, especially during these tough times, so I thought I would share some of the cute things that I got recently.


As soon as I saw this pin I knew I had to have it for my collection! I love film photography and I love GOT7 so of course this pin was just perfect for me. I love the teal and rose gold colours and also the tiny details like the Ahagse and "I love you GOT7" written on the bottom in pink. The stickers were free gift as I pre-ordered the pin but are now available to buy separately. This pin now has a home on my Love Bird Ita bag and it's so pretty I can't stop staring it. I also really adore the cassette tape pins from the same designer her work is so beautiful detailed and she doesn't just make GOT7 themed goods she also has a store dedicated to other Kpop groups so I definitely recommend you check out her work and give her a follow!



Pineapple tarts are a traditionally served at Chinese New Year and one of my favourite treats so when I saw an Ahgase selling these cutie GOT7 themed ones on Twitter I could not resist! I've actually ordered these about 3 times now (soon to be 4 for my birthday next month) as they are so good! The pastry is soft and buttery and the filling is chewy and not too sweet, they are so good and some of the best pineapple tarts I've eaten, just check out the reviews! In addition to the GOT7 boys she also makes cute little Ahagse tarts (which you can see in my unboxing video below) and also offers strawberry and kiwi fillings to so you can completely customise what you want, if you live in Thailand I totally recommend you order yourself some and if you're not a GOT7 fan she can make some more traditionally shaped tarts for you to.



Eunnise Pins are my best girls are previously gifted me with a bunch of pins which I treasure so much and over the past couple years since opening they have been on a roll creating not just beautiful pins but now branching into clothing and even plushies! I have been waiting forever to get myself their Jackson birthday pins to add to my Jackson Ita pouch and I finally got them and I love them so much, the constellation pin even glows in the dark!! The girls also threw in a bunch of extra goodies for me, some stickers, a Polaroid, a Jackson hair pin and "Broke Ahgase Club" patch which I can TOTALLY relate to and need to sew onto one of my bags soon. I always get excited to see what new designs they come out with and they are the sweetest so go give them some support.


There's so much creative and amazing fan made merch out there and there is literally something for everyone from cookies to clothing to pins to plushies, and these small businesses need your help more than ever right now so please do show them your support and if you have a fave store be sure to link them in the comments for everyone to check out and let's spread some love and support in the fandoms.

What are your favourite K-pop artists?
Love & Ahgabongs

🥜 Peanut Butter Banana Cupcakes 🍌 (VEGAN) 🌱


Since moving to Thailand 5 years ago I have hardly cooked let alone baked, however we have quite a few banana trees at our home in Bangkok which has blessed us with more bananas than we can comfortably eat so I decided it was finally time to get baking again and join the rest of the world and perfect my banana bread recipe. I've been experimenting with all sorts of different banana themed recipes over the past month and using my family as taste testers so decided to share a few of my most successful recipes for you to try to make yourselves.

  • 1 cup mashed banana
  • 1/2 cup peanut butter 
  • 1/2 cup almond milk

Stay Hydrated This Summer*

Into the middle - Boracay, Philippines

As the days are getting warmer, and summer is on its way, it's very important to keep hydrated. Did you know that 80% of working Americans say they don't drink enough water during the day? So I think it's about time we change that and make keeping hydrated a priority and what better way to get your daily hydration that with these adorable ombre water bottles at your side.


What better way to remember to stay hydrated than with these cute water bottles. I don't know about you but I personally always find things more appealing when they look cute so this is definitely one way to catch my eye and help me stay hydrated and I love how the design of the bottle tells you just how much water you should be drinking during the day. The bottle is also large enough without being too bulky that you won't have to interrupt your work or studies by making multiple trips to the kitchen or water cooler to fill up, you just need to fill up once in the morning and you'll know exactly how much water you are consuming throughout the day.


It is recommended that you consume at least 2 litres or 64oz of water a day so this bottles is the perfect size to see just how much water you need to be drinking daily. But if you exercise or live in a hotter climate I would recommend you drink a little more to compensate for the amount of water your body loses through sweating. Whenever I go out I always take my own reusable water bottle with me to be eco-friendly, reduce on plastic waste and save money and this bottle is the perfect size to take for a day at the beach or riding a bike around the park, there's no need to waste money and cause unnecessary waste when you have your own adorable water bottle by your side, and it also comes with its own reusable straw and straw brush cleaner as I personally find I drink more using a straw as I don't have to use my hands especially if I'm reading or gaming.


For those of you who don't like the taste of water or like your water ice cold the bottle has a wide mouth so you can drop your favourite fruits and ice cubes inside to give your water a bit of flavour. I personally love adding a bit of fresh lemon or lime into my water to give myself a bit of extra flavour and an added vitamin c boost. This adorable bottle makes staying hydrated so easy so everyone don't struggle to stay hydrated get yourself the right tools and make life easier for yourself and stay hydrated and healthy!

What are your tips for staying hydrated?
Love & Lemon Water
