Drawing for the first time in 1 year

Image
Drew them for the first time in 1 year or even more. Agh! I was being too lazy to draw stuff for more than 1 year so my skills got sucked ..lol I guess last time I draw was the angel. ↓


So...I needed time to practice and start out some drawings so Naushika (down below) is random sketch. Do you know all these characters? :)
1年以上ぶりに絵描いた。時間経ちすぎて鈍りまくって大変(苦笑)。確か最後に描いたのは上の写真の天使かな。。何かの彫刻と自分の中の天使の姿を混ぜて描いたんだっけかな...
ってわけで練習に下のナウシカを描いてみた。まずいねー、全然バランス取れないね オーストラリアの友だちでジブリ作品全作持ってるわ!!って子がいたから、おーしじゃぁ描こうってヒッキーやりながらやりました。どうかな? :)


The greatest pleasure in life is doing what people say you cannot do.

I need this these days

Before attending the meeting

Image
Faux suede blazer: UNIQLO T shirt: ZARA
Yellow damage denim: Forever21
Sandals: Bershka 
Before heading for the meeting for modelling this evening at 6pm, I snapped some of my outfit to that. Since I was in a hurry, I grabbed faux suede blazer, neon colored transparent t-shirt, yellow short denim, and the sandals. I didn't have to wear something formal because he told me on the phone that I can wear whatever casual clothes like ones I wore last Saturday, but it's a meeting that people basically wear formal cloth. So I close the blazer. Do you think this outfit would be good? I am excited to see girls attend with me! I might bring my camera just in case ;) Wish me luck! :D

先週の土曜にモデルのスカウトを受けて今日夕方6時に説明会に行ってきます。着て行く服はこれ。 担当の人から、先週の土曜に着たようなカジュアルな服で構わないって言われたんだけど、基本的に会ってものはカジュアルすぎちゃダメでしょ?だからとりあえずブレザー着ておこっと思ってこのアウトフィットにした。他の女の子たち見るの楽しみ♪ カメラ一応持ってこっ

Visiting Akko's Home

Image
Last Saturday spent at Akko's house after my photo shooting. There are some of photos I took in her apartment whose interior views can be post cards or some pages of room design magazine. As you see them, I edited photos to match its atmosphere of this post :) And I tried to persuade her to take photos with me but she's too camera shy :P haha So here's only me. sorry guys! She has very short hair, small and skinny (love work outs like me :D), London fashion style (e.x: gingham red check shirt, khaki pants, brown leather boots, cashmere muffler, and Calfskin Cross-Body Bag or Leather Messenger by Ralph Lauren etc). When I get the chance to take photos of her, I'll for sure upload it here :) Isn't it so pretty room? It's out of Japanese style which is my favorite!


GUCCI S/S 2011 Inspired look

Image
I wanted to do something fun for new makeup tutorial for the first time in months and I came up with one inspired by high fashion brand, GUCCI. Ordinary makeup is fun but what could be more? What about crushing colors even for makeup..? First color block inspiration showed up in my head was GUCCI because the bold color combination was sort of shocking to me when I started to look for trend of Spring/Summer 2011 in the beginning of this year. What do you think about this?  My motto (or things I try to keep in my mind always) for makeup is easy, simple, and catchy. I'm not a makeup artist (obviously!) and am not professional at all. So I always try to create one which is easy for me to remember and teach people that get interested in my work. If you're interested in how I did this, please keep reading it :)

Sunday Look 5/22 Bring here Summer

Image
Palm Tree pueple T shirt: Forever21
Yellow short denim: Forever21
Belts: UNIQLO
Sandals: Bershka
Accessories: TOPSHOP

I could say Summer is already here. Finding such a pretty purple tee and eye-popping yellow hot-looking denims determined this Sunday look at Forever21 last Wednesday's night. I know this place is the same as last Sunday look, but there was any other spot to shoot for this outfit photos than here. Actually these shots were taken yesterday. It was a right decision that we did photo shooting because today it's been raining since this morning. Then I did a makeup tutorials instead for the first time in 6 months (or more). I quite like the results :) It'll be up here soon :)
Right after we finished this photo shooting, I headed for Akko's to have dinner with some nice wine :) She and I had a great time together watching Pirates of  Caribbean haha. I'll also upload some of pictures taken in her room later. Hope your weekend went amazing!

Makeup Geek's Back

Since I've got so obsessed with fashion world, I totally stopped makeup tutorials..but I've started to think about doing it again while posting my outfits at the same time. Unfortunately my video device's been still broken and my camera isn't good for filming (mostly for taking photos) so I've never made makeup videos for months..almost 1 year. If you're interested in how I do makeup, even strange or unusual ones, stay tuned!

Forever 21  RUO (Harajuku, Tokyo)
Last Saturday, 14th, Cory and I hung out in Shibuya and Harajuku, Tokyo after his work. We walked through some vintage shops that were ridiculously expensive and yet so fun to look over, and came all the way to Harajuku by walk that actually didn't take much to get there.  Since it was Saturday, it was crowded everywhere and I excpeted that Takeshita Street where hundreds of shops packed in such a narrow place  would probably be hard to walk through. But once we started to go in, it wasn't as busy as I expected. In an accessory shop on Takeshita St., RUO, after Forever 21, I found those amazing skull rings that I immediately thought I'd be wearing often for following outfits and then bought them for my first skull ring collection. ..Cool. One has skeleton hands holding the skull and the other has a bullet (just my expression. red stone) converted in the eye bone dragged after the scar which starts from top of the head. :) I just love the…

Outfit of the day: Feeling the sun behind

Image
Necklace and Peacock ring: Forever21 Gold bracelet: TOPSHOP
Stone bracelet: present from John's parents (vacation in Sprain) Long tail t-shirt: ZARA (last Summer) Pale pink short denim: ZARA Studded belt: UNIQLO Sandals: Bershka
I'm in so love with the pale pink denim since John got me in the end of April. I even wish I could wear them for work haha. Nicely ripped and bleached surface, cuff, and not much too feminine color makes its perfection. And new and good purchase is the sandals by Bershka. I was looking so hard for hot looking sandals whose soles are made by wood, and now they're mine :) Since I wanted to wear the short denim and those sandals at the same time as to show new items, the studded belt seemed to be good to make a balance.  This weekend was filled with lots of sunshine and I couldn't complain about the weather at all. ..Perfect weather, breeze, nice clothes, (now you know what I'm trying to say ;D), plenty of time for photo shooting, and no phot…

Sunday Look 5/15 Sunlight shower like JACQUARD

Edited by Gerald Lim JACQUARD PATTERN SWEATER (Men's wear) :ZARADENIM SHORTS: ZARASANDALS :Bershka
It was a perfect sunny day to take photos outside. I couldn't stay inside home even though it was nicely breezy and warm out. Haruka and I went to the park near my house after getting her bed cover and some snack. Kids were playing, a couple was pushing their baby carriage having smiles on their  faces, and an elderly guy was on his bike singing in the sun.. It all looked so peaceful and filled with love and joy. 
A while ago, I got a new friend, Gerald, who lives in Singapore and is a freelance photographer. He is pretty easy to talk to, open-minded, and so talented in what he works on. This time he edited the first 4 photos that I am in. I love all the results he created and am amazed at how he edited them like intensifying colors, removing image noise that makes objects obscure/blurred, and choosing (knowing) what really matches the photo depending on its atmosphere. He really i…

From John's parents

Image
I received the pretty gift from John's parents that spent their vacation in Tenerife Island, Spain.

I wore those pierces for work last Friday. They look so cute especially when they swing around.
well I wanted to share this souvenir gift with you instead of other posts.. I caught a cold and couldn't make any outfit photo shooting (plus nobody here to take photos).
Thanks again John's parents for these accessories for me.

Spent at Mar de Napoli

Image
Wednesday and Thursday spent at Narita went so nice and relaxing again with John. If you read my blog often, you know Marroad hotel is our second home when he comes over :) I'm so lucky to have him who lives 9047.98 km (Germany. =5622.15 miles) away from Japan and can meet up every week. We always stay at the same design room (just the arrangement of furniture is opposite depends on which side windows fixed) but each memory is never the same. 
This time we met up at the arrival gate and waited for the shuttle bus to the hotel chatting for a while. (picture below.) I was going to see him earlier but my mom caught a terrible cold since the day before so I had to run to the pharmacy to get effective medicine and to the grocery store for her lunch and dinner. We were planning to shoot outfit photos like last time, but I had no time not only to grab extra clothes for it but to choose ones for this day. So, I'm sorry this isn't an outfit post. but I still wanted to share some pi…

Before They're Gone-Very Last Wish and Hope

Image
ASYMMETRIC COURT SHOE Seriously, I've been really really really looking for these simply perfect shoes by ZARA ever since S/S has started and again, triangular messenger bag with flap (I'm almost giving up finding this bag because John even helped me look for it by going all the way to Frankfurt and found out they don't have it (Even in FRANKFURT!!) :(( . Every time I find ZARA, I start looking throughout all the floors, corners, under the shelf and tables covered with a bunch of cloth..but I never found it yet. ... :'(
I don't need clothes..just want these shoes in size 39. Why am I so insanely wanting it? Just because they're good design for work and for outfit photo shooting. I could wear them with many combinations of my outfit and they seem to be comfortable to walk in. Including the triangular messenger bag with flap, I just and really wonder why they don't have those fashionable items here.. They have no idea if there's such a fashion addict gi…

Outfit of the day: Love strong colors

Navy blue long tail cardigan: ZARA (bought last year) White tank: TOPSHOP Floral laced T shirt: ZARA Gray legging-pants: UNIQLO Tribal inspiration heels: Forever21 Cow leather neon orange bag: ZARA
Nail: OPI Photographed by my talented sister :) It's been a while since Haruka photographed me for outfit post and I love more her camera work. She does know how to take great pictures (of me? haha) and how to handle my (sucky) digital camera. We took more than 200 photos and I had to narrow down them to just a few pieces..but this time it took me much time until I picked them up because most of the results were great. Weather was also perfect. It was full of sunshine and warmth everywhere, all flowers bloomed, and the trees were covered with bright green leaves.  I'm already in love with the Tribal inspiration heels by Forever21 and my baby, amazing orange bag that matches faux stone ring. I've been so inspired by so many fashion bloggers and seeing my own style day by day. On…

New In: Forever XXI dolls

Image
New shoes and accessories by Forever 21 that John got me at the mall while visiting Narita last week. Thanks again so much babe :) Since I wanted to have hot heels or sandals for coming Summer, of course I'll wear them so soon though, these platform heels are perfect. These soles nicely fit my feet so that it is amazingly comfortable to walk in. I'm already excited to put them on for outfits in the sun :D  After we came back to the hotel, I wore them with new ZARA pink denim in the room and he took some pictures of me. I will post of the outfit sometime soon!

Long sleeve shirt: ZARA
Bandolera Charol bag: ZARA
Belt& Ripped jeans: UNIQLO
Bracelts: TOPSHOP
Zigzag Knuckle ring: Forever21

Right after coming back from Narita Airport yesterday, I went to Mister Minute to get my heels repaired. The tip of the heel (the left shoe) was completely worn out and had the steel part bare. Every time I walked, the steel scratched the ground and made noise x( Well I should've gotten it repaired last Thursday before I got to see John after my work, I didn't want to spare even a few minutes for it at that time. Actually I wasn't going to do photo shooting that day but my mom willingly offered taking photos. She's so cool hehe
It was super super windy out!! It was pretty hard for me to look at the camera because my hair, blazer, and the bag kept being blown so hard and tiny sand came into my eyes, which made me cry haha
You might be able to see how strong the wind was and I was trying to resist it :P It's even stron…
