How I started modeling + some modeling tips

I did not expect myself to be a model, or at least make it one of my occupations. But here I am in Tokyo, slowly but surely building my career hand-in-hand with my blogging. My first photo shoot was actually during my university days, probably about 7 or so years ago (I may have given … Continue Reading

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. This weekend, I did a photo shoot at Zushi beach in Kanagawa prefecture, and my … Continue Reading

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.

Navy is the new chic with AllSaints

Before I delve into the rest of the Global Travel Blogger Summit adventures, I decided to squeeze in an outfit post taken during that week. My good friend Gail of The Equinox Fashion took these photos for me, despite the very limited amount of time we had before the two of us headed over to … Continue Reading

On the go with Oribagu

Being a girl with multiple occupations, I’m constantly out and about, sometimes traveling to 3-4 locations in the city per day. As a model, I’ll have auditions and photo shoots to go to; as a blogger, I schedule my own photo shoots somewhere in the city with photographers or go to business meetings; and as … Continue Reading

Stand Out From The Crowd

Standing out from the crowd – this is actually tougher than it sounds. Some people are naturally gifted with extroverted personalities. I have and still meet people who are bold in their actions and speech, and from an introverted girl’s POV, it’s something I’ve always looked up to. But I don’t let my shyness keep … Continue Reading
