Grids & Ice

One of my current obsessions is definitely the grid print. Not joking when I say I want it in different styles and colors in my closet! I love how it's not exactly loud like checkered plaid but still gives a stronger effect to your look. Read on to see more details of this dark outfit!

Japan 2015: Art Supplies Shopping In Japan + Art Haul

Being the country that invented Manga, Japan is also the best place to shop for art supplies! This has definitely been on my list of things to do ever since I set foot in this country and it's something I've been looking forward to doing forever! Almost everyone I know recommends Tokyu Hands, mainly because it's complete and they have branches scattered all across Japan. I got the chance to visit their smaller branch in Osaka and a major store in Shibuya which you can see in the photo above. With the limited time given to me, I was only able to visit Tokyu Hands, however there are a lot of other art stores that Tokyo has to offer, but for now, here's my guide to shopping at Tokyu Hands + the art supplies I got in Japan!

Suited Up & Chasing The Sunlight

Came to the realization recently that I still have a very low affinity for legitimate formal wear, mostly because I don't really attend a lot of formal events. This is an outfit I wore to attend my college's ball. Every year, to mark the end of our own brand of hell week, also known as architecture week, the student council hosts a fancy ball, which I've never attended until this year. The theme this time around was "Cruise" and I had no idea what it meant. The fashion blogger in me thought that maybe they meant for it to be nautical? With that in mind, this was the outfit that I came up with. Read on for more details!

ZIG Memory System Scroll & Brush Review

The Scroll & Brush by ZIG's Memory System collection is definitely one of the more popular pens of the bunch, which is why I was so happy when it became available in most National Bookstores for the same price as my favorite art store - Craft Carrot! I got my very first one last year during an art fair in UP Town Center and have been a fan since. Read on to see how it performs!
