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!

Travel: Hong Kong

First I would like to preface this post by saying I am so proud of myself for travelling on my own for the first time ever! It was a learning experience and I learned a lot about myself and what I am capable of. The trip had some down points including locals taking pictures of me without my permission (I can deal with the stares but come on wtf…) and cab drivers refusing me service most likely because of the color of my skin. Despite these experiences, I met a few great people in my short time in Hong Kong and had some memorable moments while in Asia’s global city. Here are just a few pictures from my trip!

Travel: First day in Japan

Hello WordPress World! This is my first official blog post since moving to Japan. I am so thankful that I had a safe flight and now that I’m settled into my dormitory (temporary housing for the next 8 days till I can move into my apartment), I want to share my first experiences in Nagoya, the city I will be living in for the next year! Here are some photos I took around the city including some inside the Nagoya City Science Museum. Enjoy!
