Amazing ERASABLE stamps and pens FRIXION- Jenna no manga Review

I made this video out of the blue!

My daughter (Mini-chan) started school and I have to organize myself. How to organize yourself when you have 2 young kids and a husband that is very forgetful?!

With planners, organizers , calendars, schedule.. You name it haha!

The problem was that I had to correct things that were cancelled, rescheduled or just plain mistakes, and I did not have space to write everything I needed to write in my planner for my daughter's school (because a 4 years old in Japan have Prime minister's agenda...)

So I purchased super cool and cute Frixion by pilot stamps and pens (yes sailormoon pens XD ).

In the video we will review these amazing erasable stamps and pens. I feel that they are "must haves" for planners and organizers!

 Here are some links to similar pens and stamps that appears in the video (affiliated) :

Learn weather words in French - Easy lesson with Jenna no Manga (and best books about life in Japan recommendation)

In this video I will teach you about French words and sentences to talk about the weather in French. Again this is an easy French lesson illustrated with Faber Castell watercolor pencils (affiliated link).

I actually tried to make another illustrated video some kind of storytime about life in Japan but I did not like the result.

I have so many things to share for the blog but I find it complicated to write French, English and Japanese in the same bubbles. I am thinking of creating several blogs in different languages.

I mean if I had the time and energy that is what I would do...

But if you really want to read about life in Japan in comic forms, I still recommend the comic books of Texan in Tokyo (affiliated links)  :

My life in Japan.

Confessions of a texan in Tokyo

My japanese husband thinks I am crazy

These are fun books about real life in Japan as a foreigner, and about being married to a japanese man in Japan . I so want to write a book about my experiences here so I really admire that she went for it and did just that (^-^)

Learn feelings and emotions in French - an easy French lesson with Jenna no manga

I made this illustrated French language lesson about learning French feelings and emotions. It is an easy lesson for beginners and it is kids friendly so that my daughter can actually pick some English and French. She did not know the word I used for "surprised" in French so I am glad I made the video.

I used my faber castell watercolor for my illustrations (affiliated link). I am a beginner but I absolutely love my faber castell pencils I have regular ones as well I hope to improve my skills this year so I am not sure about drawing with my tablet yet and the future of this blog.

I want to thanks people who supported me again, I know I look emotionnal in my last videos but a lot is happenning.

Why I left Youtube and deleted my videos. My experience leaving my channel and Internet.

I finally answer in details why I left youtube and why I deleted my videos.
I really wanted to bring the vlog back Casey Neistat's style but my anxiety is pretty strong.
It was not an easy decision to quit Youtube and the Internet but I guess at the time it was for the best. 
I just wish I had been able to post something similar before quitting my channel.
