A Beauty & Lifestyle Blog

Thursday, March 13, 2014


I recently came across a blog, I absolutely LOVE! It's called Tokyobanhbao. I feel so bad, because I couldn't figure out the blogger's name (oh forgive!)...but this girl is ah-mazing. She's a fashion blogger, foodie and has traveled extensively. She's Asian and I believe lives in France. She's traveled to London, Korea, The States, Japan and Thailand to name a few. All of her posts are written in both French and English. Get this! She's also an illustrator! She was featured in the popular foodie magazine Fricote! I think she's also written some books. Her illustration of Chanel's recent runway show is what caught my attention. I just quickly glanced over her blog posts and the food one's are...SWOON-TASTIC! She really makes you laugh with her cartoons for each food post. She also has a superb sense of style and the cutest haircut. So check her out! If anyone knows her name, please leave it in the comments below. Had to share this :) Have a great day!

I have always admired bloggers who have the patience to blog in two different languages! And I love a good blog that mixes different topics in style - I have also thought of blogging recipes every now and then but haven't done it so far, maybe I should give it a go :)

Thanks for sharing your findings, Kim. Have a good day you too {hugs}

Irene said...

P.s. You're so right about her haircut, it's so pretty! And her illustrations are very cute :)

Morning Kim! I didnt know her, just checked out her blog and is way too adorable, have to save the link to come back later with calm. Besides her fantastic style, I also noticed her cute haircut. Her drawings are really cute and made me smile! Love this kind of personality with multi talents. Have you too a great day! xo

I was intrigued when I spotted the title of your post today in my blogroll! These illustrations are such fun (she is so talented!) and I just had to pop over to the blog. When I have more time I shall read more posts but it's fabulous and a bonus is the French as I already follow a few French blogs to help maintain and improve my language skills. Thanks for the introduction Kim. You find such great topics for your posts!!
