SLY 2015SS Showroom

Yesterday, I had the pleasure of attending the SLY 2015SS Showroom in Shibuya Hikarie. My manager invited me, and it turns out he is friends with one of the designers, Ms. Udagawa. I got a picture with her and my manager :) 

I loved their western boho-inspired Spring/Summer collection because it was so reminiscent of California - chill, relaxed and carefree. And the bold lips design in the notebooks and pens are too cute. I purchased a few things for an amazing discount, so can't wait for those to arrive next year!

I actually attended two more showrooms today and a party, which I will be posting in more detail in the next few days <3 Thanks for all the thoughtful comments on my latest posts. I enjoy reading them so much :)

shoes: Sam Edelman via Shopbop; headband: Opening Ceremony; 

photos by Kiko Cagayat and myself

This past weekend, I had the pleasure of meeting Japanese-Filipino blogger Kiko Cagayat. We met through Instagram and, and after a little mix-up of Starbucks locations in Shinjuku (trust me, there are too many near one station), we finally had a nice chat over coffee. Kiko is so friendly and polite, and has amazing style. He was a natural with the camera while I was fumbling with it not knowing what I was doing haha... Love his iPhone case :) Check out his blog, "Kiko learns to blog" for more style updates!

Since it wasn't too cold the day we met, I dressed lightly in a turtleneck sweater and trench coat, and wore my new Opening Ceremony headband. I love the combination of regimental stripes and fishnet detailing. Even though I don't own or wear that many hair accessories, I picked this beauty up during Fashion's Night Out a few months ago. I just love it.

Medical Esthetic Salon Viage

This weekend, I was invited to try out a new esthetic salon in Kitaurawa called Viage, which is conveniently near my home. It was actually my first time to ever visit a beauty salon in Japan, so I was very excited for this opportunity. The owner, Ms. Sasaki, did an amazing 60-min facial for me, and I could tell my skin looked much brighter than it did when I first walked into the salon. I took these photos after my facial - can you tell my skin looks better than before? I decided not to wear any makeup the rest of the day :) 

今週末、北浦和にオープンしたViage というエステサロンへ行ってきました。エステをするのは生まれて初めてだったので、わくわくしながらフェイシャルをやってもらいました。オーナーの佐々木さんはとても素敵な方で、気持ちいいフェイシャルをしてくれました♪ 60分があっという間に過ぎ、肌も生まれ変わったように引き締まっていて、明るくなっていました!!本当におすすめです。またお世話になると思います♪

BEAUTY | a NARS holiday

I mentioned in a previous post that I received some NARS cosmetics after modeling for their artist summit in Tokyo. What I didn't mention was they sent me more beautiful shades of lip colors, blush and eyeliner. I am truly in (NARS) makeup heaven right now. Even the packaging was perfect for the holiday season.

I've been using NARS blush for over a year now, and I really recommend those - the colors look beautiful on the skin and they are so easy to blend. I'm not huge fan of lipgloss, but adding a bit of gloss over a lipstick adds the right amount of shine (or that's what Mr. Nars himself told some of the artists at the summit). So that's what I've been trying :)


I'm currently looking for a new makeup bag to fit my newest additions. I'm really liking this Ezra small striped cosmetic pouch by Kate Spade, the medium dome cosmetic pouch in gold by Lesportsac, and the Marc by Marc Jacobs preppy nylon small cosmetic pouch in black. I don't really like noisy prints when it comes to small accessories like a makeup bag. So hard to decide! Shopbop has a big selection of cosmetic pouches here.

Also, don't forget to enter my giveaway with The Golden Heart Store here, and PLEASE check out my new song on Youtube here!! I would really appreciate it <3
