Feathers and Snakeskin

Of course I went shopping in L.A.!!








Wow! This month has whizzed by! Vacation, work, work, vacation and now back to work and school! I spent last week working and enjoying a few days off in L.A. It was definitely nice to be back home and see all of my family and friends.

So, this amazing purchase was made actually a few months ago in Hong Kong at I.F.C. Mall. They are absolutely to die for. They caught my eye as soon as I stepped into the shoe section. And finally as my last try-on I tried these. They are a collaboration heel with the movie Tron: Legacy and Opening Ceremony. I don’t have much to say about the actual movie…but I am in love with these awesome futuristic heels. They’re made out of neoprene, which is the same stuff wetsuits are made out of, so they fit snug as a glove on your feet and rubber platform soles. They look pretty bulky but once you put them on they fit great and are lightweight which makes dancing the night away a piece of cake.

The only thing is that in the summer, your feet can get a little sweaty in them. But I think if you wear any kind of heel, unless they’re super open, the summer heat will win and your feet get kinda sweaty anyways. Haha

I wore them out to the Diane Von Furstenburg party and the Kitson party and got so many compliments. They are truly one-of-a-kind.

As a total shoe-a-holic, I LOVE these bad boys and can’t wait to wear them again!!

Sorry I haven’t been updating as much as I should be. I promise to update more!!


“Greece” is the word

I had such a wonderful time in Greece. What an amazing 2 weeks.

Here are some pictures from my vacation to Mykonos, Santorini, and Athens~


I took so many pictures over 2 weeks it was hard to decide.

Well, the weather was amazing and so we spent almost everyday at the beautiful beaches and in the crystal clear water. I am a total beach girl, so there is no place I would rather be. I feel so refreshed and relaxed!!

I loved Mykonos. The beaches were absolutely gorgeous. Mykonos Town is just so cute with it’s white and blue buildings and house and cobblestone paths which were streets that you could lose your way in. It felt like a little Dr. Seuss town.

Santorini was just picturesque. The most amazing sunsets everyday in Santorini were a major highlight of the trip. We even took a boat tour to climb the volcano, swim in the hot springs, and visit Thirassia, which is the other island that makes up Santorini.

Our friends in Athens said that there are over 1000 islands in Greece. I was surprised but thrilled because that meant that I would have to come back and explore some more. I will definitely travel back to Greece.

Spending everyday outside felt so good. Living in a big city like Tokyo, I didn’t realize how much stress my body feels without natural surroundings. I wish I could spend everyday on vacation, but don’t we all!!

I couldn’t of asked for a more perfect summer holiday!!!


I’ve been waiting for you

My summer vacation has started!! Were you able to guess where I might be going this summer??
The day after my birthday I hopped on a plane and started a long 4 legged journey to The Greek Isles. I have been dreaming about coming here for so long. I’ve only heard wonders of the blue on white color scheme, the absolutely beautiful beaches, the clear ocean water, and the delicious food!

We arrived in Mykonos at night so I was a little disappointed I couldn’t see more of the island. But as soon as the sun started shining I was so excited I jumped out of bed and opened the balcony doors of our little hotel room to see the sun rising on the beautiful town of Mykonos and the Aegean Sea!!! I was in heaven!

The best part is that my vacation has just started and although today is our last day in Mykonos, we are about to hop on the ferry to take us to Santorini for 6 days!!

I hope that you all are having a wonderful summer so far!!!

Sending you lots of love from Greece!!
