Again, the weekend just sped on by before I could say (insert cool word here). I spent Friday morning and afternoon running around Tokyo to my various jobs, an audition and a party where I met someone that I thought I’d never meet in this lifetime. That’s all I’m going to say now. Saturday, I had my first photo shoot since joining my new agency. I hadn’t done a studio shoot in so long, I felt so out of practice… it’s a different kind of modeling than what I do for my the outfit posts on this blog. I was very lucky the photographer knew exactly what he wanted out of every model (there were 3 other girls modeling that day), which is always a relief. And I loved my outfits – the stylist was the sweetest lady, and so talented. I can’t wait to see the finished product, and also to work with these same artists again (I did post a few sneak peeks on my Instagram, @samanthamariko). Anyhow, after 5 hours of shooting, I rushed to a friend’s friend’s wedding party reception, and enjoyed myself amidst good food, good music, and good company.
Sunday was one of the most relaxing days I’ve spent in a long time it seems – while everyone else was at Ultra Japan, a 2-day music festival in Tokyo, I was the being the grandma that I am and had a light brunch at a cafe with my man, finished some work (yes, I still work on weekends…), and discovered a shopping mall that is only 10 minutes away by car or bus. The reason why I’m sort of discovering these things now after 2 years is because I live right outside of Tokyo, and I’m in the city at least 6 days a week for work and such. Which is why I don’t get to explore my own city. It’s so nice to know that there are cute malls and eateries in my area as well. I found spending time outside of Tokyo, even for one day, to be relaxing and a good way to recharge my mind and body for the upcoming week.
How do you all spend your days off? Have a great week ahead!

Glad you had a great photoshoot Samantha and nice photographer. A good weekend is when you do the things you love! No matter where or with who. That's all that matters. Discovering new places is so energizing. It leads you to new things and experiences. I stayed home… Real boring! Lol
