blondy & BLONDY ReLISH 2015 SS Collection Showroom




On Friday, I was invited to check out the 2015 SS showrooms for Japanese women's fashion brand blondy and it's sister brand, BLONDY ReLISH. What was so special about visiting blondy showroom was that I was the model for their 2015 SS lookbook. Imagine my surprise at seeing my face on the walls of their showroom! I was so happy I almost cried. I've always wanted to model for a lookbook, so this was an amazing opportunity for me. I'm glad it was for blondy - everyone on the team was so nice and friendly, and were also very supportive when I told them about the release of my new song (I mentioned it in this post). The last photo is with the photographer, designer/director and the lady in charge of press-related matters.


金曜日に、blondyとBLONDY ReLISH の2015SS展示会に行ってきました。実は、先週blondy のLOOKBOOKモデルをさせて頂きました。展示会で飾られていた写真を見たとき、大変感動しました。こういう仕事をずっとしたかったので、夢が一つ叶いました。blondyの皆さん、本当にありがとうございました!とても華やかな、素敵な展示会でした。

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!
You can check out more about SLY at www.sly.jp


昨日は、事務所のマネージャーさんとSLYの2015SSの展示会に行ってきました!彼は、SLYデザイナーの宇田川さんとお知り合いということで、色々とお話ができました♪
SLYのSSコレクション、すごく気に入った!ウェスターンBohoがテーマで、カリフォルニアが懐かしくなってきた。少し早めのお買い物をしてきました♪


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 :)




Love,

OUTFIT | A Tokyo blogger meet-up with Kiko Cagayat



(Trench coat: Ines de la Fressange for Uniqlo; turtleneck: Uniqlo; skirt: Zara;
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 Lookbook.nu, 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.


先週末は、ブロガーのキコ・カガヤ君に会ってきました!東京でブロガーさんとお目にかかることは本当に光栄です。彼はとても良い人で、とても楽しい時間を過ごすことができました。お互いのコーデ写真を撮り合ったりし(私はカメラのスキルゼロ)、お茶しながらお話ししたり。今度はもっと大勢のブロがーを集めたいね!ということに。楽しみだな〜。今回のコーデの決めてはオープニングセレモニーのカチューシャ!レジメンタルストライプとメッシュのディテールがお気に入り!


A few reminders before I end this post:

  • PLEASE check out my NEW SONG "Turn It Up" on Youtube and Soundcloud !!
  • Don't forget to enter my GIVEAWAY for a cute beanie from The Goldenheart Store here !
  • Chek out the Shopbop holiday sale at www.shopbop.com !

That's all :) Have a great rest of the week!

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♪
