Baby Be Mine

I’ve got a new baby to add to my growing collection. I’ve been eyeing this Saint Laurent camera bag for months now–but because I’m still recovering from my last shopping spree, I thought I shouldn’t indulge myself for a while. But then, my lucky stars lined up and I suddenly spotted this red hot babe […]

Tomboy Chic

You don’t need a lot to pull off the tomboy chic style. It’s basically just getting the right mix of beautifully lousy clothes that would make people think you’re too cool to care about what you’re wearing. But in reality, you do care. If you’ve got a closet full of basics, then maybe you should […]

Milking It

I don’t know why but this outfit reminds me of a milkman… or a bread boy. Nevertheless, I still like it. This was actually a last minute outfit I put together hastily. I’ve run out of things to wear on our last full day in Osaka so I reused my top and matched it with […]

Travel Diary: Osaka Castle

Finally back in Osaka after touring around Kyoto and Nara. We really intended to make this city our last stop so that we can enjoy a free and easy schedule. Compared to Kyoto, Osaka doesn’t have a lot of tourist spots–the most famous one is probably already Osaka Castle which is what you see below. […]

Travel Diary: Kinkakuji and Maruyama-Koen Park

I’m sure a lot of you know how much I love the color gold, so imagine my happiness when I saw an entire structure covered in gold! Presenting, Kyoto’s Kinkakuji–a Zen Buddhist temple covered in brilliant gold leaf. Originally, Kinkakuji was built in 1397 as a retirement villa for Shogun Ashikaga Yoshimitsu. It was only […]

Modern Day Needs

Don’t you just hate it when you reach into your bag and it takes you forever to find your phone until you eventually mess up the contents of your bag? Cables get all tangled up and things start unraveling. I, for one, definitely know this story all too well. And I’m sure I’m not the […]

Travel Diary: Fushimi Inari Taisha

Fushimi Inari Taisha or Shrine is the most important shrine dedicated to Inari, the Shinto god of rice. Several locals visit Fushimi Inari to pray for prosperity for their businesses. Tourist, however, visit this shrine for its visual appeal. Personally, I think it’s one of Kyoto’s most beautiful sights. It’s hard not to be when […]

Travel Diary: Shopping and Dining In Kyoto

To make up for my absence, here are 44 photos of Kyoto’s shopping and dining hot spots. You’re welcome! First on the list are Ninen-zaka and San’nen-zaka, two of the most beautiful (and crowded) streets in Kyoto. They’re gently sloping and narrow lanes near Kiyomizu-dera Temple and Nene-no-Michi Lane, lined with traditional looking shops and […]

Set Me Up

Let’s take another break from my Japan travel diaries for a quick OOTD update. It was love at second sight when I saw this striped set from Mango. Yes, “second” because I saw the star print version of this set first and fell completely in love with it. Sadly, the store didn’t have the star […]

Travel Diary: Nijo Castle

The Nijo-jo or Nijo Castle is one of the few remaining castles in Japan that showcases traditional palace architecture of Japan’s feudal era. It’s definitely not as in-your-face flamboyant as European castles and possesses a more subtle kind of grandeur, but nevertheless, still worth a visit. The biggest difference I noticed between the two is […]
