Fiery Red Paradise of Kochia at Hitachi Seaside Park, Ibaraki Prefecture

Hi everyone!

Last Tuesday, I took a day off from work and had a solo trip to Ibaraki for the second time. My first time was when I went to see the stunning Nemophila flowers last Spring! Thanks to my friend Ashley for giving me advice about the best time to visit this magical place.

If you've been following my blog since last year, you would know how much I love nature and flower parks. I'm really motivated to save up so I could travel more around my favorite country. My goal is to visit all prefectures here in Japan! :") *wish me luck!!*

For now, let me take you on a journey from Ueno to Ibaraki!

☠ Impromptu Sukajan Suicide Squad Shoot ☠

Hi everybody!

Just sharing this fun The Purge / Halloween / Suicide Squad-themed photoshoot we had yesterday before our friend Aldz (Justin's HS batchmate / fellow Advertising Mgt. student) went back to Osaka. It started with just "let me just take a photo of both of you wearing the jackets before you leave" and.. then my brother came for work. Then, it all escalated quickly lol. We suddenly had badass props for the "mini shoot", haha!


Enjoy the photos, everybody! Haha

Life Updates + Autumn Lookbook Video + #ABCDailyJournal Start! 🌈

Hi everybody!

I just realized that I haven't blogged that much recently. Blame Scarlet Heart Ryeo & W - Two Worlds, haha! I don't know if anyone is aware but I'm a certified K-drama marathoner... lolol. I could spend the whole day in bed and in my pajamas watching unrealistic love stories online. Realistic or not, I just really love how Koreans make / produce movies and dramas! Watching Kdramas alone just makes me want to book a trip to Korea! If you have any recommended 2014 - present Korean drama for me, feel free to let me know please. ; ) I love Descendants of The Sun, Iljimae (period kdramas), She Was Pretty, Pinochio, and the like. Arigatou in advance! ;)

Just sharing this unrelated photo because I haven't had any room selfie in a long time (I think lol).


Last week, I shared and posted a video of my own version of Autumn / Fall Lookbook video. I really enjoyed editing this one!

Will post a separate blog entry with all the lookbook photos ~
