asking for trouble

Back on Pinterest

I’ve restarted my Pinterest and it would be great if you can give me a follow.


I used to pin quite regularly but once I set up an account for Super Cute Kawaii, there was no easy way to pin to both so my personal account stalled completely. I recently noticed they added account switching so I’m back pinning on both.

I didn’t want to have a big gap on my boards so I went back to 2016 on my blog to help me start pinning again from where I left off with a few things each day. I’m back to 2017 now so I should catch up in the next couple of months.

I share a mix of Asking For Trouble stuff (products/designs/freebies), personal stuff (inspiration/wish lists) – and Japan of course. Hope you’ll follow me!
