BABY-G x Humming Birds Magazine x Vita Coco

Summertime and the living’s easy. I finally made my way out to the beaches of Miura, my first view of the ocean this summer. This used to never be the case when I was still in California, but what can you do when you’re in Tokyo? Anyways, my friend Justine and I participated in the … Continue Reading

A December beach

  Enjoyed an afternoon at the beach today with my brother. I wish I was more of a beach girl growing up, but I’m still spoiled for being able to enjoy some California sun right before Christmas. Our bathing suits are courtesy of Billabong Japan – thank you! We love Billabong <3 今日は弟と冬のビーチを楽しんできました。クリスマス前に水着着て海へ行けるのは、本当に贅沢だなーと今更思う。水着とトランクスはBillabong Japanから頂いたものです。Billabong 大好き! … Continue Reading

A Huntington Beach sunset

With my friend Amy visiting my hometown of Huntington Beach for a couple days, it makes me see the city in a slightly different light.

California girl

My last few days in Orange County were spent shopping, walking around Main Street in Huntington Beach, and catching up with my friends over good food and drinks. Also, a family dinner at Tokyo Table consisting of American-style sushi. I already miss the summer weather despite it being winter, my family, and my friends. But … Continue Reading

When I went to Main Street today, there was no way I could just walk by this vibrant wall without taking a  picture in front of it. Perfect since my outfit is the exact opposite of vibrant. But I still love the dress I picked up at H&M recently – I think it’ll be a … Continue Reading

Blue waves

It was nice to be away from the hustle-bustle of my daily routine and be able to have time to myself, minus … Continue Reading

Laguna Beach

These are a few shots from a bridal shoot I did a few days before I left for Japan. It was an overcast day, but I think the set came out nicely. I didn’t realize there were so many cute, artsy spots in Laguna Beach – I really had a great time with this one. … Continue Reading

Sunday morning

I spent a lovely Sunday morning at Redondo Beach Pier. (top:needsupply.com; pants:zara; sunglasses:rimo) There was a beautiful jewelry shop in Fisherman’s Wharf called Mie Pearl. The Japanese owner and his wife were so kind. They let me pick out an oyster and mounted my pearl on a ring. I love it! To finish it off sweetly, … Continue Reading
