How I started modeling + some modeling tips

I did not expect myself to be a model, or at least make it modeling one of my occupations. But here I am in Tokyo, slowly but surely building my career hand-in-hand with my blogging.

Ginza, the Beverly Hills of Tokyo

June is here, and so are the warmer, sunnier days that have been on a continuous streak for the past week or so. The rainy season usually starts mid-June, so I’m making sure to enjoy the beautiful weather until then.

How I started blogging + some blogging tips

A couple of days ago, I asked my followers on Instagram what kind of content they’d like to read on my upcoming blog posts.

Crisp spring basics

Spring is here, and it’s my favorite season after summer (I’m a summer baby so it makes sense). When I think of spring fashion, I immediately steer towards brighter colors and airier silhouettes and materials. This is where an oversized, crisp white shirt from Allumer comes in perfectly for that chic boss babe look. If … Continue Reading
