Birthday Goodies Haul

So yesterday was my 23rd birthday! I celebrated all weekend but on my actual birthday (which is on a Monday) I was in what I like to call “blissful retail solitude” in the hip neighborhood of Shimokita, where I picked up some birthday presents for myself. I have pictures for you to see what I picked up!

The perfect white shirt. The folded picture doesn’t do it justice. Can’t wait to reveal this Issey Miyake masterpiece in an OOTD post coming at ya soon 👀
I saw this in a vintage store in Shimokita and didn’t think twice. This was meant to be mine and I’m saving it to wear in the fall 👻
This sterling silver piece was so gorgeous I had to purchase it even though I usually don’t like spending more than ¥500 on a piece of jewelry. Maybe this will inspire me to be a rich bitch and invest in more expensive jewelry!
My first YSL purchase! *insert Young Thug ad lib* this vintage clutch will go really well with an all white outfit and cost only ¥5000!

Gorgeous see through vintage shirt perfect for this hot Japanese sun ☀️

Separate post coming on my weekend and what I wore!

OOTD: Flower Grrrl

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!

My new Tokyo apartment!

So hey everyone! I finally moved to Tokyo yayyyy! I’ve been here for two weeks and I’ve spent this time setting up my apartment and getting accustomed to the neighborhood. After all of the cardboard, plastic wrap and unpacked bags, I finally have everything the way I want it. Check out my crib in the pics below!

Loving this clothing rack! It’s always been my dream to have one in my apartment. It was bought as a gift by my Japanese mom, Noriko. It’s the perfect way for me to plan my outfits and see different shapes and patterns come together.
My T.V. area. Peep the BAPE towel! There was a JLo video playing in this picture lol

My casual clothes. I tried to organize everything by color. Excited for fall so I can wear my crazy button downs.
This is my computer and book storage area. Cute, ain’t it? Let’s hope it will encourage me to study Japanese harder 😂
Another cork board with some messages from my students 🌸✨
bed.
Bathroom, not fancy but it gets the job done.
Look at my snacks!
My genkan. It’s customary in japan to remove your shoes here before entering a home.
Shoe closet!


See ya soon, I’ll be posting about some new gear I’ve bought since moving. Ciao ☕️ 

Travel: Osaka/Kyoto

So this trip happened months ago but I’ve been so busy moving (yes y’all, I moved to Tokyo!) that I didn’t get a chance to post yet. Here are some of the few pictures I got to take. Surprisingly most of the them were taken at Kyoto station where I was for a job interview. Despite all of the beautiful shrines and temples Kyoto has to offer, all I explored was the station haha. Anyway, enjoy the photos and I’ll be posting an apartment tour (I promise) as soon as I am moved in and settled into my new place! Cheers

OOTD: BBC

I went to Nakamura Park for the first time today. This is significant because Iv’e lived  a one minute walk away from this park for nine months but have never been inside. I went with my co-worker Shawn, who obliged me by taking pictures for an OOTD. I apologize for my lack of posts, I’ve been very busy at work and have lost a little creative drive. I will try to post more regularly in the future.

Shirt: Billionaire Boy’s Club

Leather shorts: SPINNS (vintage)

Jean Jacket: Calvin Klein (vintage)

Shoes: Doc Martens

Travel: Little Big World Museum of Man

Today, I had the opportunity to visit one of the most unique museums I’ve ever seen, with one of my awesome students! This outdoor museum has traditional homes from all over the world, from countries like Burkina Faso, Italy, Peru and Indonesia. There were a lot of great gift shops, where I was able to enjoy a bit of Christmas shopping, while also picking up some souvenirs for myself. I really enjoyed the Peru landlord structure the most and the murals and furniture were absolutely a dream. Here are some photos I took, enjoy!
