bits of tokyo: yoyogi

We spent our last day in Tokyo walking Yoyogi park in Shibuya. It was so beautiful. I had seen a few photos of the park in fall, but actually going there and people watching was a whole different story. We don’t have much parks here in the Philippines (at least nothing close to that), so seeing people come out to play with their dogs, picnic over cold cuts and wine,  practice ballroom dancing and fly a kite felt so new and refreshing. It was so great!

I couldn’t get enough of the fall colors. I think i’m unconsciously obsessed with it now, trying to subtly inject them in some work that I do. Just look at the combination of the reds, oranges, yellows, greens, and everything in between!

Anton, Chesca and I walked over to Family Mart to buy beers and cheap cold cuts in a pack that their convenience store so conveniently had there (I wish we had that here too!!!). We sat in the grass, ate, drank, and just people-watched.

big day brews

Never in my life have I tried any dietary supplement or diet plan. I’ve always tried to fix my eating habits on my own, because I felt it’s something more doable in the long run and it doesn’t make me dependent. To some extent it has worked, but I have to admit that it’s not exactly the strictest, healthiest diet. I’ve seen a lot of these diet plans and meal replacements online, and I was always curious about them and if they actually really worked.

Lucky for me, I got the opportunity to try Big Day Brews, a natural weight loss regimen that contains just the right amount of nutrients your body needs. It’s fresh, delicious, and even has different flavor options to choose from that serve different purposes. The best part? Each person’s Big Day Brews purchase can actually help someone in need.

what’s to love about korea?

Korea has always been part of my “immediate to do” list. This is my must do by mid twenties type of list. It was a place a lot of people encouraged me to visit for the food and fashion. This, Japan and Bali were the top three.

One night during a random drinking session in Anton’s rooftop, my friends and I talked about the CebPac sale happening that day. We never really got to travel complete outside of the country, and the places we all wanted to visit were pretty similar. After a few drinks, we ended the night with a trip to Korea.

Korea, truly, did not disappoint. A lot would compare it to Japan, and your favour would really depend on your preference and priority when traveling. I have fallen in love with both.

To give you an idea of South Korea, here are a few things I loved about the place.

fashion frustration

Every time there’s something I like but can’t have (or buy at that moment, at least), I (weirdly) find comfort in pinning them to my Pinterest boards, writing about them or reblogging them (during the Tumblr days). These platforms have become my source of inspiration and refuge for things that I want, especially for anything fashion related. Scrolling through my virtual closet makes me feel good, and sometimes helps take away or lessen the longing.

Behold, my recent cravings. I am much more an accessory person than I am a clothes person (love clothes still, of course). But I think accessories are easier to repeat and really can make an outfit.

I’ve been bugged by the Textured Stilettos from Charles and Keith for weeks now, that even if I know I can’t buy them at the moment, I enter every branch just to see if they’re still there. Last night I succumbed to their website and couldn’t help but gather photos of shoes I’ve been eyeing in their store.

Someone help take away the craving!
