Back in sunny California

And I’m back in beautiful, sunny California for the next two weeks, with brief travels to New York and Texas in between. Since I live an ocean away from my hometown now, whenever I’m back I realize how lucky I was to have grown up near the ocean and I can appreciate everything now that I’m … Continue Reading

Pacific City

My 2 weeks in Cali are whizzing by and weekend 1 of Coachella is right around the corner. I did have some time to check out the new shopping center near Huntington Beach Main Street. Pacific City opened recently, and I’m already loving the scenery and convenience the area has to offer. Now I wish … Continue Reading

Visiting the zeroUV showroom in Huntington Beach

  Fellow blogger Francis Kenneth and I stopped by the ZeroUV showroom located in Huntington Beach, California. It was almost overwhelming to see all the different designs displayed in the room (and I mean it in a good way), and I picked out some new shades to take with me to Coachella this weekend. I … Continue Reading

OUTFIT | Colorful vibes in Huntington Beach

I currently live in an area where it takes 2 hours in the least to get to the nearest beach, so it was a real privilege growing up next to one in Surf City Huntington Beach. My brother and I took a quick drive to our local beach and enjoyed some California sun. When my … 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. As we were driving along PCH during the sunset yesterday, she remarked, “You are so lucky to have lived in such a beautiful area.” Having lived away from California for … Continue Reading

Relaxed days

  My last post from my trip to California – this was from my last day there in Huntington Beach. I made a short but sweet stop at Sweet Elle Cafe with Sylvia and her friend, and we later headed over to Huntington Beach Public Library for a quick shoot. I did a photo shoot … Continue Reading

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

Main Street

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

  Today was one of those days where I couldn’t resist the urge to soak in the sun and enjoy some beautiful weather. Warm sun, slight breeze, blue ocean, people tanning, children playing. 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
