10 Things You May Not Know About Me

Tokyo has officially entered coat season, and everywhere I go, the holiday spirit is in the air. Earlier this week, I went to Tokyo Disneyland and it was so festive with all the Christmas decorates and the huge Christmas tree on Main Street.

You say goodbye, and I say hello

Oftentimes, song lyrics are a form of comfort for me, especially when the going gets tough. I recently experienced something rather unpleasant, and while it was difficult for me to grasp at first, I’m already recovering swiftly thanks to a fabulous support system and some smarter, less emotional thinking on my end.

Uniqlo and Lemaire – layering up in black & white

Sometimes I like to keep things simple in terms of color, but layer up in different lengths and textures. Uniqlo always does collaborations with different designers, and this season I picked up this cropped knit and wide-legged pant from the Uniqlo and Lemaire collection.

OUTFIT | Minimalist sorcery

Photo-shooting with Nahoko, round 2. It was Monday, I didn’t know what to wear on this chilly February day, so I threw together some of my favorite items at the moment.

I do, mainly because I hear it has already snowed in Tokyo, and also, you can’t really experience the change of seasons in Southern California (palm trees and greenery all year round). I did another photo shoot with Canadian photographer Jason Mordeno, who … Continue Reading
