Shimokitazawa 下北沢 : Japan 2014 (Day 4)


After a month ++, WE’VE FINALLY REACHED JAPAN DAY 4, YOU GUYS!!! Hollerrrrrr at me!

I’ve put off editing these photos because visiting Shimokitazawa was one of my most favorite things I did in Tokyo, that I didn’t want to do a hurried entry of it. The neighborhood is known for its artsy shops and hole-in-the-wall cafes, but I didn’t expect to enjoy the sights more than the shopping. . . cause I actually didn’t buy anything, except for a totally useless Anpanman face mask which I’m still immensely happy about. I’m all for really un-smart purchases.

I Don’t Make Clothes Out Of Loom Bands


OH HEY LOOK, ACTUAL CLOTHES! Being the royally late updater that I am, these ~outfit~ shots from my Japan trip last July is only being posted a full month after. But it’s a milestone that they even made it online, so I pat myself on the back. I quite enjoyed putting together this “ensemble” because it hits all the right chords for me = fun, visually interesting, comfortable, with a hint of boyishness.

Takeshita Street: Japan 2014 (Day 3)


Starting off this slew of random photos by an obligatory outfit shot at Takeshita Street, before it gets terribly crowded. We visited on a Saturday, so the mix of camera-lugging foreigners and ~stylin~ teenagers are to be expected. This particular photo illustrates how different me and my sister really are. She is the quintessential girly-girl, what with her tutu skirts and bows and Balenciaga rip-off shoes. I, on the other hand, am wearing an oversized Mets baseball shirt that bears the name Delgado. I am not into sports, or baseball, so you can safely label me as a poser.

Travel Journal [ Japan 2013 ]

Wherein I share with you some scans of my Japan 2013 travel journal.

Like most of the things that end up on this blog, my intention was to post these scans last year. But as it happens, I FORGOT ALL ABOUT THEM.

However, it’s high time that I get around to posting this now, since A) it’s been more than a year since the actual Japan trip, and my excuses are getting a bit embarrassing, and B) I’m leaving for another trip to Japan in two weeks!!!! RING THEM BELLS!!!! I am so psyched to finally, finally visit Kyoto and pretend to be a ninja / samurai in one of the historical open air museums. Watch me try, cause I really will.
