1. I love the concept for this Goo Hara's nail book. It's so freaking cute!!! I just love the aesthetic design, ugh! I just wanted to keep it for school reference. LOL. Don't get me wrong I love Goo Hara! But this book is just beyond perfection 😍
2. Who doesn't love this bag? Huh? Huh? I LOVE this bag from the moment it came out! It's so freaking cute! I just don't think I can afford to buy the real one, though, but definitely, will treat myself the dupe LOL
3. This Marauder Map cup is everything I've ever wanted! The map appears when you pour hot beverages and disappear when it gets cold. How cool is that? 👀👅
4. This Horcrux bookmark set is so badass. Who's with me?! 😍
5. Who loves the Weasley's family?! I DO! I actually wanted one of the custom letterings for this sweater, but just could not find the right one!! This one is perfect with the shiny kind of wool. I love it! 😍😍😍❤️

I have mentioned this on my new year resolution post a few weeks ago that one of my new year resolution is to read more books. I am trying to read at least one book every month, so let's hope I keep that up. lol.
Also, with that, I am trying to improve my writing skills so I am going to blog about what I think and feel the books I have read. So, yeah I hope this will help me in the long run D:
So, this month I finished reading the Maze Runner and the Harry Potter and the Goblet Fire. Let's first talk about Maze Runner for a bit. I have a bit of mixed feeling about this book; unsure of how I felt. I was drawn in finishing this book because of the plot. I want to know what is going on, what is going to happen to these characters, what's ahead of them. However, at the same time I felt like the book wasn't very exciting. There were really no life. The characters really just got no personalities whatsoever. The book was okay. I enjoyed it because it was something different than what I am used to reading, but I am not, well, hooked.. And sadly I would not continue with the rest of the series. I rate Maze Runner 3/5
Harry Potter and the Goblet Fire in the other hand was really good! I don't have a lot to say beside the fact that it was very magical. Every Harry Potter book I have read was so good and really takes you to a different world. I couldn't put it down! I am in love with Hermione and Krum <3 I rate Harry Potter and the Goblet Fire 5/5
I also have goodreads that you can check out :) -> click here <-

Many of you probably know this very popular café in South Korea. They are famous for their patbingsu, which is Korean specialty shaved ice. I have been to Caffé Bene when I was in South Korean a few summer ago, I must say I fell in love with bingsu right that time LOL. Anyway, I was so happy to find out that they have Cafe Bene in Toronto!!! Even though I don't think the one we have here is the original Caffe Bene, I can finally taste bingsu again (//=3=)//
I went here on my Christmas break with a friend; it was very cold so we decided to order hot drinks. I ordered gingerbread latte ($4.45) and my friend ordered sweet potato latte ($4.75). As for my drink, I couldn't taste any of the spices that gingerbread supposed to have, but I am not sure if that was their intention.
After we had the hot stuff out of the way, we ordered patbingsu. LOL talking about sensitive teeth... Anyway, we decided to go with oreo choco one ($8.99) It had a banana, strawberry, tiny marshmallow, oreo, and to top it of whipped cream, waffle biscuits and a drizzle of condensed milk. It was good, I don't know much about bingsu so I think it was good. I had the original red bean bingsu when I was in South Korea, so it was good to try different kinds of bingsu. I am hoping to try brownie choco, affogato, and rice cake next time! (>v<)!!
Next up! LOL. We ordered quiet a lot alright ><! We had the brick bread, I think we chose the honey cinnamon ($5.99) I have to say that it was my favourite one out of everything! It was SO GOOD. Yeah, it was a bit sweet, but I enjoyed it a lot! I love it!!
Well, well, that was all. Did that make you drool? LOL. This cafe offers a lot of sweets, but there is a few light meal on the menu that you can order.
I would say this cafe is good if you want to do a group study, hang with your squads, as they have that very homey and nature feel to their cafe.
Overall conclusion, I love this cafe! The sweets are good, the staff are friendly, and very cozy environment. The only downside I have, and it's a very personal one is that the sweets are too sweet. But like I said, it is just my personal opinion.
Cafe Bene is located up North by Finch station. Address below! :)
5519 Yonge St, North York, ON M2N 5S3
I rate Cafe Bene: 4.5 out of 5!
