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.

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.

Sin City

Tatooo Vegas

I can never fake the date of my photos, or fake my current location. The color of my hair in photographs is the singular telltale sign of my personal timeline. If I only ever had black hair, never mind that I’m posting this Las Vegas trip 5 months late. I could’ve easily lied and said I’m currently in Las Vegas, posting current photos. I could’ve pretended this wasn’t a backlog – that this wasn’t the product of my laziness. But alas

I would like to tell you though that this photo above might be one of my favorite “portraits” of mine. I’m not gonna lie, I feel so badass. Beside the obvious that I am standing outside a tattoo parlor, I look so nonchalant about standing outside a tattoo parlor. It was also freezing cold at the time this photo was taken, and I am amazed at my ability to keep a straight face for the sake of a good picture. Of course, I don’t have any actual tattoos – though I have a booklet of temps at home which I keep in my book case.
