OOTD: Japan Adventures Part Three

Photography by Gabriel Troullier

This was my final day in Japan, and the last day I could feel my feet! Sightseeing in Japan is just as exhausting as in New York. You walk and take the train everywhere! This shoot was in Zama, about an hour outside of Tokyo. Gabe and I found the streets to be extremely appealing to the eye, small but quaint, with narrow roads and lots of personality. We had a birds eye view of the city ahead and decided to stop and shoot. The whole time I was thinking how sad I was to leave such an awesome country and Gabe. We took pictures quickly then went off to sight-see more with two final stops; at another arcade (our fifth at this point) and ramen again for lunch. The trip definitely ended on a great but sad note.

Stay tuned for my last Japan installment, a photo diary of different places I visited that you should too.

OOTD: Japan Adventures Part Two

Photography by Gabriel Troullier

God I miss Japan! I have to tell you guys how amazing it is. The people are super friendly, the streets are clean and the food is to die for. Everywhere you go, you feel like you're in a video game with cheerful music playing, numerous arcades, and streets lined with toy vending machines. I mean, how could you not be happy?! I never imagined going and now I can't imagine not being there. Everyone, please put in on our bucket list of countries to visit.

This stop, Shibuya Crossing, was one of my favorites and is known as the busiest crosswalk in the world. Gabe and I did a quick photo shoot among the craziness. I, of course, made him snap away as people stared and tried not to block my shot in true Japanese politeness. I loved every minute of it! Seeing all these people just made me in awe of how amazing Tokyo is. Looking at these pictures, I'm thinking, where are they all going? Where are they all coming from? And when can I go back?

Stay tuned for one more look and my photo diary of Japan.

OOTD: Japan Adventures Part One

Photography by Gabriel Troullier

I'm back after a month and a half hiatus! After blogging consistently for two years, I needed some time off to focus on myself. I also work a regular 9-5 job that was kicking my butt! So I decided I needed a vacation (first time since 2007) and went to visit Japan. Sometimes you just need a break from life, you know?

Today I'm sharing my first look from my first day there. I went straight to find the Sakura (cherry blossoms) trees before they went out of season. God they're magnificent and beautiful! I brought my Missguided pink coat that matched perfectly. The weather there is like New York, cold and rainy during the spring season so I'm glad I packed it. I styled the rest of the look with my usual black and white attire. I have two more outfits plus a photo diary of all the places I visited that I can't wait to share. Stay tuned!

Thanks to Gabe for a wonderful trip and reminding me how great life can be!

4 Ways to De-Stress with HP x 360

Today, I'm sharing my take on 4 Ways to De-Stress, inspired by the HP x 360 four modes.

I’ve partnered with HP to test out their new X360 laptop. HP is currently traveling with Meghan Trainor for her “That Bass” Tour. Click HERE to follow along the tour, see how HP bends the rules, and access behind-the-scenes tour footage. 

Who doesn't get stressed after a long work week? I know I do! If I don't take time out of my life to do things I love, I know I'll go crazy. So, today's inspiration is brought to you by the new innovative HP X360 which can be used in 4 modes – laptop, tablet, tent, and stand. Here are 4 ways I like to distress:

1. Hang with friends: I count on my friends to help me de-stress and forget about the work week. Meeting for brunch, coffee or shopping is my favorite thing to do. I can always count on a great laugh when I get together with them. 

2. Yoga: I recently picked it up again after a long hiatus. I now count on it for my sanity and to distress. Meditation is really important to remain grounded. 

3. Travel: I recently went on a trip up the California Central Coast. My friend and I drove through Big Sur where there was no cell phone service. It was so great to just put my phone down and take in the beauty of nature. More trips are on the horizon! 

4. Stay home: I love to read and watch movies and there's no better place to do it. 

I would love to know how you guys de-stress after a crazy work week! If you have any ideas and tips, please share.

Thanks for stopping by!

NYFW Day Two

Photography by Annette Vartanian

I can't even begin to tell you all how cold it was on day two. Annette and I went to the Zimmerman show near Chelsea Piers then decided to eat and shoot. You can tell by my Rudolph nose and my deer frozen in headlights face how freezing I was. Nevertheless, it was still fun!

This was my favorite look I wore out of the three I styled. I've had this top for years and I'm glad I can still put it to good use. I paired it with a pink skirt and kept everything else simple. Dressing warm and practical become top priority! I have one more look to share so stay tuned.

Thanks for stopping by!
