Murua top, Lady Luck shorts by Alice McCall, Wego shoes

These Lady Luck shorts by Alice McCall are one of the most perfect items in my closet. The fit is awesome and the fabric is unexplainable! Hope I get to buy more items from them soon!

This Murua top is one of those pieces I could go to on a whim. It's white, it's boxy, it's unconventional. What more could you ask for, for a white tee?

Currently in Haneda airport, 20 days flew so fast! I'm not sure if I'm ready to zap back to reality but we are never ready anyway! I had the best time even if it's summer and raining because of my family. Sometimes I fell that I'm too strong. I'm independent. I live on my own. I have a career. I take control of my life. It's overwhelming, sometimes, to be thrown out of your comfort zone. But, it's for the best. I'm sure! I've never been so mature about my decisions in life. Cheers!

How was your summer break so far? I would love to know! I went to Universal Studios Japan twice, met up with friends in Osaka, hangout with my family at home and in Kobe. That's basically it but I feel so relaxed and energized now. I'm going to have interview on Friday and pull outs on Saturday until the 4th of September until I fly to the Philippines for Kawaii in Manila 2! I'm so excited to be busy!

Straw Hat Crew’s Feast Restaurant, a very popular restaurant that made its debut in the Park last summer, was highly rated among many guests. The restaurant just re-opened this summer at the site of Discovery Restaurant in Jurassic Park! And I get to try it! Find out what I thought about the food before you go..

Here are my top 4 items from the recent Lace Just Got Prettier collection of Dahlia. Some of the items are available at Girly Rose Tokyo (here) such as the Phoebe Contrast Peter Pan Collar Top and Skirt. The minute I saw it, I just knew I want to have it.  Ahhh dreaming, dreaming! 

When someone ask about my style, I couldn't really answer directly cause it just changes every single time but I believe my natural state would always be "girly". No matter how hard I try to alter it, it will always go back to it's original form. Imagine when I tried school girl grunge look, people will still say it's cute! Things we can't control, yea? It's summer vacation in Japan now so as you've noticed I got loads of time to blog. Let me know how's your summer so far? I wish you all an amazing one!

One secret that I want to share with everyone is how conscious I am with my thighs. If you've noticed, I rarely wear shorts, pants or anything that will emphasize it. I know it's kind of silly but I'm sure many of you could relate to this insecurity. Girls will be girls. Growing up, I always had a pair of chicken legs as what they call it but when I got a little bit older I gained fats. Thus, my body shape now. Since I'm used to being thin, it's kind of hard for me to admit that I'm having a shape. I don't have a straight body, I have curves. I don't hate it but I don't like it that much either. Lots of women works really hard to have that kind of curvy body but as always we like what we don't have. Thanks to clothing technology, I could easily hide this part of me that I don't like and it doesn't really matter. Unless someone really wants see my thighs, duh. Slowly, I'm starting to love it because of Beyonce and how she rocks that booty. However, it will take time (or forever) for me to flaunt it. How 'bout you? Mind to share your story?
