Review: Tokyu Stay Hotel in East Shinjuku

Another review on hotels in Japan. I stayed at the same hotel that I stayed at the first time I was in Tokyo. But this time I stayed at the new branch that opened in east Shinjuku instead. I really like the Shinjuku area because of all the department stores and shopping malls nearby, especially on the east side of Shinjuku. There's Lumine 1 & 2, Lumine EST, My Lord, Bic Camera, Uniqlo, Yodobashi Camera, Don Quiote, Marui City, Isetan and more. Also, I like how at the Shinjuku JR station, there are many trains and train lines that run through the station so it makes it even more convenient to get around to places in Tokyo and outside of Tokyo. Although sometimes it could feel quite overwhelming trying to figure out which exit to take because the station is so big and feels like you're in a huge maze. 

The new branch is located in the central of east Shinjuku. It opened in 2015 so it's still fairly new and it even has a bar/restaurant right next to the hotel. 

I stayed at a two beds room this time and layout of the room is pretty much like their other branch in west Shinjuku. I really like the small mirror table with the chair which makes doing your makeup and hair in the morning so convenient. And you have everything you need with a microwave, kettle, washer/dryer and even hangers to hang your clothes.

Room Wear: Pink Leopard Sleeves Ear Hoodie

Winter is here and it is sooo cold outside. The best way to spend winter is no other than being cozy and warm at home with a cup of hot chocolate. I bought this fleece sweater with pink leopard print sleeves and ear accent hoodie a few years ago but haven't even worn it once. It's because it has been buried under the pile of my winter clothes in my spare closet this whole time. I found it while I was going through my closet the other day and decided to take an outfit snap with it. I realized I have a lot of clothes and accessories that I have not worn a single time. So this winter instead of buying new clothes, I want to wear more of what I already have. 

I can't believe it has been more than a year since I have been done any proper outfit snap post and I truly do miss doing them on my blog. I don't know why I stopped doing them for so long. I guess I must have got preoccupied with other things to blog about like all the posts about my Japan trip that I'm still slowly working on. But for the upcoming year of 2017, I want to blog and do more fashion/outfit snap posts at least 1-2 times a month. They're a fun way for me to look back on to see how my fashion style has changed over the years. 

I also recently discovered this new editing filter called pikapika on a photo app 美颜相機 (BeautyCam) which basically turn your selfie pictures into an animated character like those purikura machines in Japan. It's actually quite fun and addicting. 

This filter is called Zanilia and it's my favourite one! I really like the big round frame glasses and it looks quite natural too. Not too much of a drastic change and actually looks somewhat close to the me in the original photo, lol.  

Yup, I'm a reindeer. My eyes look kind of creepy but it also adds this soft feminine look. 

This one is called Lolita which doesn't look too dramatic other than my eyes being super big but I really like my lip colour. 

This one is a silly one called dizzy which kind of looks like this emoji (@_@;) lol

I normally don't edit my photos all that much other than making the photo brighter if the original photo is too dark and smooth out my skin and remove any pimples (if I have any at the time) and that's pretty much all. I don't really do all those other random crazy things that other people do like make your eyes bigger, nose taller, slim down face with a pointy chin, etc. I like to keep things simple without changing my overall face shape and face features. But I think it's fun to play with photo apps like this for that over the top cute look sometimes and not for all pictures I take, lol.
