Sometimes being a grown up means ice cream for breakfast. Specifically Haägen-Dazs Pumpkin Ice Cream on your Pumpkin Pecan Pancakes with your Pumpkin Spice Coffee. #happiness #pumpkinspice #autumn #lifeinjapan

This little guy appeared on my desk at work yesterday as a belated birthday treat! My first time at my visit school since the day, and I can&#8217;t believe my lovely coworker remembered, let alone went to the effort. So cute, so delicious :D

On a related note, I&#8217;m currently taking a Coursera course on Luxury Marketing, and the topic this week is &#8220;What&#8217;s Trendy in My Town.&#8221; It&#8217;s safe to say Gunma-chan is very trendy, with this little pony mascot currently ranked number one in the YuruKyara Gran Prix, the national cuteness competition for mascots. 
One thing that I really like about Japan is that while cuteness is often seen as childish in the US, it&#8217;s often embraced unabashedly here. Samantha Thavasa&#8217;s designer handbags include a Disney line, grown men wear stylish character shirts, and fabulous little cakes with raspberry mousse and macaron hats are available in fancy bakeries.  Love it! #mafash14 #gunmachan #gunma #japan #cute
