Easy One-Egg Spinach, Mushroom & Parmesan Frittata

I'm far from being the best cook you or I know but I can tell you one thing: I'm good at making those easy, delicious, short-cut dishes. Basically, what this means is, in the kitchen I'm not a hard worker but more of a smart playahhh.
I'm such a takeout-and-watch-movie-on-TV kinda …

Army Green + Red Lips

Suddenly I want to be all about army everything (camo love here)—what is up with that? But, I don't know, combining army green and red is kind of the shiznit for me now.
This was a super casual outfit I wore on a Sunday, one of those days when I got ready in about five minutes. I mean, 5 minut…

Little Photo Diary: Ameyoko Market

Ameyoko or Ameyayokocho is this huge market in the Ueno area in Tokyo with apparently over 180 shops, which makes me think that there is no way anyone, local or foreign, has ever been to every single one of those over 180 shops (I could be wrong, of course).
Shah and I went searching for this mark…

Not My Boyfriend's Jeans + Monk Shoes

I mean, they're boyfriend jeans, but they're not my boyfriend's jeans.
If you've been following my blog for a while you'd know that I love to pinch from Shah's closet, especially this one particular piece (which you can see here and here). I've gotten myself a few pairs…

Bespectacled Mickey, Bespectacled Liyana

One word: FAVE.
Actually that might not be an actual word in the dictionary, isn't it? But you know what I mean. 
Just like how people say their wedding dresses "found" them, I think this long-sleeved t-shirt "found" me too. It found me at the right moment in life.
I talked…

My Glasses Endeavour & Idea of Beauty

When I was 10 years old, my little brother and cousin, both in the year below me at school, started wearing glasses. I would go to school with them and stared enviously at their sunglasses, wishing I had a pair on me, too. A year later I got my wish, and I was probably the one kid that was happy h…

Makeup & Beauty Things From Japan

Four little cutesy things and two big beauty buys from Tokyo.
If there is one thing I learned from my Tokyo trips, the makeup and beauty aisles at the local pharmacies / drugstores can be overwhelming; they're just absolutely crammed with products and if you don't speak and read Japanese, …

Camo

I feel like my fourth trip to Tokyo was the most productive out of all trips—shopping-wise, that is—and I have to say this camouflage jacket plays a big part in it.
It was really hot when we arrived in Tokyo early August but a few days before we were due to leave, the temperature dropped slightly …

Striped Shirt + Striped Skirt

It was the day I unintentionally matched my outfit to the cool grey structures of a city and its cloudy sky...

Guys, I am OBSESSED with this outfit. Shirt, skirt, bag, polka dot socks—ALL of them.
I saw the matching stripes in Avan Lily in Shibuya 109, the very same shop where I bought my denim ba…
