PHOTO DIARY: BURGERS & CAFES

I know, you're probably thinking why am I eating burgers in Japan? Hands down I have never eaten such delicious burgers before! I went to J.S Burger Cafe by PARCO in Shibuya and ordered myself an Egg Teriyaki Burger. I don't even know how they expect you to eat such a tall burger but I actually ate it with a knife and fork. It looks like a small burger but I couldn't eat all of it, maybe because I had eaten all of the fries which was tasted amazing - the right crispiness and flavour! Then headed towards Omotesando Hills where me and my friend just visited a lot of stores. Everyone is shopping like crazy and when we decided to take a break we went to Smoke BAR&GRILL where I ordered an iced americano to pump back some energy into my system. I am actually in love with the interior designs of the cafes here in Japan, they have so much character. I'll create a new tag under 'japancafe' so if you ever come to japan you can filter my posts and visit the places I've been to. We visited the comme des garcon design store and that's where I took the mirror shot (my outfit: denim - siwy, shoes - oz, tank top - monki; jacket - ark clothing; sunglasss - quay australia). To end my day, I walked down cat street and then headed home as I was knackered. 

Also, I don't know if you know this but I have been attempting to 'video log' every single day. Some days are good, some days are bad. Sometimes I just totally forget that I wanted to document everything. But so far a week in Tokyo is up, and if you have a little spare time or a bit bored - check it! ♡

How beautiful is the interior design of Trump Room? By chance I got to meet the owner of Trump Room (bar/club) and Nude Trump (vintage store) and he showed me around the entire building. There's countless chandeliers all over the place, and it's so Moulin Rouge and Pirates of the Caribbean-esq. 
Loved it! ♡ Thank you so much.

Explored the roads of Kichijouji today with my friend. There was a long road with cute little stores and cafes around. Towards the end we took purikura together - this Japanese photobooth makes your eyes huge and legs extra long..

Any excuse to do ohanami (cherry blossom viewing) is a good! Can't believe it's just been a week since I've arrived and so much has happened. So today it was nice to finally just chill by my house, do ohanami and explore the area by skateboarding (you can see me skateboarding on instagram). I've been wearing these boots since they arrived here from Italy, they're super comfortable! So I've been trying to edit the vlogs, but my laptop isn't cooperating, I think I need to get a new one soon as this one is going to die on me shortly.

PHOTO DIARY: TOKYO WEEK 1

HELLO FROM TOKYO
Untitled
Shibuya, Tokyo.

It's been almost a week since I have been in tokyo, and so far I've done so much I haven't had time to update the blog so much, but if you're on instagram or twitter I update there everyday! The weather here is great and I came just in time for the cherry blossom season. It rained twice so far but that hasn't stopped me from going out to explore when I'm not working! So I will show you what I've been up to lately through photos.

Friday I arrived at midnight and after waiting for things to open took a train to where I'm staying. After exploring the town, I went straight to Harajuku and visited my friend Yoppy who was holding an exhibition of her Autumn Winter 2014 collection for her brand: Little Sunny Bite.



Saturday I went to I-TOKYO event with Yoppy, this brand is created by Ikumi who is a model in Japan. I love their collection so much! After that Yoppy introduced me to the staff from MINI magazine and we all ate Yakiniku!

Sunday the weather was terrible, lighting and raining. So my lovely friend Maya Kibbel came over and we just talked for hours and had a couple of drinks and tasty food at my place. I didn't take any photos that day.. but I want to write it down for memories ♡


On Monday I had a shoot early morning for a new magazine that will launch in Japan called 'Style Fizz'.

After that I had a meeting with a company which I won't mention yet, but I'm looking forward! Later on I met Maya again, and we did お花見 which is cherry blossom viewing at Yoyogi-Koen. I visited shops like Avantgarde and Bubbles (which I bought an awesome heart choker from).

Tuesday I came to my managing company's office, and was given awesome pair of shorts and jeans from the American bran SIWY. Honestly, wasn't much of a fan of jeans but loving these so much. Yes I have the same top as yesterday cause I just used the top for the shoot and after that realised that I wanted to wear it the next day haha.

I was around in Shibuya and so after doing some blogging for Nylon Japan I met my friend Shuhei for a coffee and got on well cause we share the same taste in music! Of course I took lots of chekkis.

Later on that day, I met with two of my friends Yusuke and Hiromi and we had delicious food. The quality of food here in Japan is really amazing.

So thats my week so far! And a lot more fun things coming up. I've been vlogging everyday too, but having problems with the editing software I use.... Day 1 is up already but I'll try sort out the rest during the weekend!

Peace,
