recently i've maybe been overworking myself that finally it's caught me and i became sick. yet there's nothing more satisfying then seeing completed works. these images were actually tests with this team and i really enjoyed working with them. it's been almost a month since i've updated this blog, there's so much i want to share but time is limited lately. today i finally have time, so i'll write up as much as i can - whilst recovering from a bad cold.

MONDAYS WITH MICKEY

recently i've been having the worse insomnia. today was a struggle to wake up from the little sleep i managed to get. so ignore the tired makeupless face because that's the least of my worries. i've been eating iced candy pops a lot to keep me cool because the heat is just too much. i've taken so many photos on my film camera, just waiting to gather enough and go develop them in the dark room - will be so nice to be in the dark room after a long time. recently i've been listening a lot to trip hop music and its kept my head together.

DENIM & TOMATO JUICE.

That's all I have to say for this post. The awesome jacket though is from MISBHV which they have cool cool clothes.

summer has reached it's peak here in tokyo (i hope so otherwise i will die), and it was great to pick out these light weight monochrome palm print runner shorts and to pair it with a lightweight flowy top and open sandals. i explored nakameguro on this day which is become one of my favourite locations to walk around. there's so many amazing shops and cafes - and i happened to go into a french patisserie cafe (long time no see) called Le Cordon Bleu and had a hard time choosing which pastry i wanted to eat, but ended up having an almond croissant with an iced coffee...i was so happy.

Recently the word 'time' has been used a lot in my vocabulary and thoughts. Things like the right timing for something to have happened, the time of thinking of no longer being a student and now working a full time job. Time, as in 'only time can tell what will happen' - in various meanings. Time, as being patient when something isn't going right or if you're living a struggle. But it's also something precious, that you have to balance out situations and see what's worth the time and the wait.
Now onto the photos, I was asked to by Daniel Wellington to collaborate with them by styling their watch with my outfit. I chose the 'Classic York' - men's size in rose gold. What I love about their watches isn't just the minimal and sleek design, but that you don't have to buy multiple watches if you're just wanting a different strap. All the watches come packed inside a little tool that you can pop out the current strap and replace it to another one that you want. I though this was really clever, so that's why I styled two outfits to show you. All the photos were taken by the lovely Lisa from Paint with Stars.

THE GREAT BURGER

UntitledUntitledUntitledUntitled

...was indeed a great burger. that even after the second day, i still feel it in my stomach.
here i ordered a 'apple gorgonzola burger' which i know may sound strange to you, especially if you're in the uk. i certainly never heard of anything like this before so i went with my friend's recommendation, and i'm glad i did because it was AMAZING. sweet but salty, and although my stomach was bursting, i couldn't get enough of it. i really did eat all of it. and if anyone is in japan (or tokyo, if you want to try this restaurant), the burgers here are on another level!
