Jinja is the Japanese word for shrine. Today for the first time I visited the Minamisawa Hikawa Shrine, a five minute walk from my apartment building. It had a serene and peaceful feeling and shrines are fast becoming my favorite places to take pictures. It was also such a beautiful experience to see some of the senior citizens in the community coming to the shrine to pray and pay their respects to their ancestors. I went with my friend Ruth and she was able to get some great shots of me! Check them out below!
Sunglasses: Forever 21
P.S. – I will be getting my own domain very very very soon! I think its time to expand my blog and brand and I’ll definitely enjoy playing with different layouts 🙂
Today’s outfit is representative of the day; relaxed, simple and clean. I like to spend my Mondays reading, blogging, doing laundry, watching movies, cleaning my apartment and eating whatever my heart desires. These are all forms of self care and methods I use to de-stress after a work week (especially after working a 6 day week like the one I just had!). I’m wearing some UniqloxLemaire white pants. I bought a few pieces from this collection and these pants are my least favorite out of the bunch but they went very well with my Monday aesthetic. I paired them with a simple H&M tank top and some dramatic sunglasses to finish off the look. Check out my look below!
Yesterday I spent my day in natures palm, with my new friend Ruth! She took these beautiful pictures of me and I took pictures of the scenery around us. We explored the area around Sayama Lake, a stones throw away from Western Tokyo in neighboring Saitama Prefecture. I’m very excited to know such beautiful nature is so close to where I live! Details about my outfit and pictures below, everyone enjoy their week!
So Monday was my actual birthday but I celebrated on the weekend with some close family friends! Saturday I went to dinner with one of my good friends I’ve made in tokyo so far, Sho. Afterwards we went bar hopping, where I proceeded to turn up off of life. I swear I was sober as a button and the only thing in that glass was ginger ale. I swore off drinking (except for a birthday glass of wine) because of the excess of alcohol I consumed in Thailand. This weekend I’m going to start my own original detox to get rid of the toxins I’ve acquired this month through poor food choices and drinking too much. Anyway I had a nice sober time at one of my favorite bars, Gaspanic. This place has a club feel and you can dance and not feel awkward, unlike most bars in Tokyo. I tried to create a #lewk but the lighting doesn’t do my outfit justice, in my opinion.
On Sunday I celebrated with my Japanese family, the Okamotos. They are some of the nicest people I’ve ever met and they always welcome me into their home with open arms. They are friends of my father and since moving to Tokyo, they’ve made my transition to life here so much more comfortable. They took me to a nice Italian restaurant, where we celebrated with an abundance of pizza, pasta, chicken, beef and much more. I had a great time and am so thankful to them for their lovely gifts and thoughtfulness!

New OOTD post coming soon! Till then be good and take care of yourselves…and each other.
So hey guys I just recently got back from my vacation in Phuket 🇹🇭! It was awesome and much needed. Along the way I met some really nice people, tried new things and tried to look as bomb as I could without screaming “tourist” with my fits. I don’t usually invest in summer clothing because it’s just not my season for fashion and so the annual H&M 70% sale was a godsend. I bought so many tips and shorts at amazing prices like ¥500 yen a piece! These are some pictures of what I wore during my six days in Thailand!
I spent my weekend relaxing and preparing to travel for the next 12 days of my life. This weekend, Ill be going to Yamanashi Prefecture to be a camp counselor for my school! Ill be there for four days living in the widerness with 7-12 year olds so wish me luck. The next day I’ll be catching a flight to Phuket for my Obon week vacation! I’m still having a hard time narrowing down which clothes to take but I’ll make sure to do as many OOTD posts as I can. I did a quick OOTD in my apartment with flowers and darkness being my inspiration. Check out the pictures below!
Today was a good day. Good outfit, good movie, good company, good laughs, everything was just peachy 🍑! I’ve been dying to wear this shirt I got on sale at a Zara in Shibuya, but it was thoroughly annoying when the top ruffle kept blowing in the wind and exposing my goodies to the streets of Shinjuku. I had some help from Erwan to keep my shirt down and he took some great pics of me. Check them out below!
PS: I looove wearing pink now, I never knew how good I could look in it! Now on the lookout for different shades 🎀.
