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.

Alice in a Dancing Land Cafe in Shibuya

So while my friend and I were shopping in the Shibuya area inside the PARCO mall, I got really hungry and was looking for a place to eat. We saw at the shopping mall floor guide that there was a Alice in Wonderland themed cafe nearby so we decided to check it out. It is located in this little street off to the left side of the PARCO mall in Bershka in the basement level.

Line Friends Store in Harajuku

When I was shopping in the Harajuku area, I made a visit to the Line Friends Store. I'm pretty sure everyone is familiar with the Line Friends characters if you use the LINE chat messaging app or the Line photo app or if you play their games. I personally love using the line stickers in the chat messaging and editing my pictures with the Line photo app. 

Right when you enter, you are welcomed by Brown, Cony and Friends on the left side of the store. 

Inside the store you will find a lot of plushies and toys of the Line characters and it was really hard to resist not to buy anything as they are soooo cute! But I managed to stop myself because I really had no need to buy any more plushies or toys to bring home. (ノ>▽<。)ノ

I really like this section of the store with the big plushie dolls and really cute animation pictures on the wall that lead down to the basement level.

Happy Halloween!!!

Happy Halloween!!! This year I decided to be a neko (cat) for Halloween. I actually just wanted an excuse to wear my cat ears headband, lol. (=^.^=) 

Also at work we had a pumpkin decoration contest where we were split into teams to decorate a pumpkin and we put it up at the front lobby of the school for students to vote for the best decorated pumpkin and my team actually won! =D 

We made Sally from The Nightmare Before Christmas! I have actually never seen the movie. I think I should watch it tonight to celebrate our victory. XD I drew her face and my team members help painted her and did her hair. We even made a movie poster to add for the background. 

Other pumpkins made by other teams. The Drake one was really nice and artistic. It actually won 2nd place! 

How are you celebrating Halloween? Are you dressing up as anything this year?

Review: Hotel Sunroute Chiba

Time to review another hotel in Japan. This time I am reviewing a hotel that I have stayed at in Chiba for 2 days. The location is super convenient and easy to find. It is located right above from the Chiba JR station and there are many food places nearby and convenience stores like Lawson and Family Mart. 

The front lobby area to check in is really nice and spacious!

Review: TSUJIRI in Toronto

Tsujiri, the all-matcha menu cafe bakery opened its first shop in downtown Toronto on Dundas Street West near Bay. The shop sells everything matcha flavour from lattes to soft serve ice cream to macarons and cakes. The shop which is originated from Kyoto Japan has a history of 156 years! All drinks and desserts are made with products imported from Japan. During the summer there was always a long lineup outside of the shop with customers lining up to buy ice cream. Until today there is still a line of customers everyday.  

The shop is actually quite small with very few tables and seats to sit. You'd be lucky if you are able get a seat. I only got to sit at table once out of all the times that I have been to the shop.

Their menu does change up quite often and there are a variety of drinks and desserts to choose from such as lattes, teas, floats, sundaes with soft served ice cream and some pastries like roll cakes and macarons and cookies. 

The Tsujiri Sundae is served with red bean paste on genmai at the bottom and matcha ice cream with shiratama and chestnut and a sakura flower cookie on top.

Tsujiri Shiratama sundae with red bean paste and mochi balls and matcha ice cream on top. Also available in mix or vanilla flavour. 

Tsujiri float in matcha flavour. It's basically a blended ice drink with matcha ice cream served on top.

Overall review: I would highly recommend this place if you love matcha. As a matcha lover myself, I can see myself coming back to the shop often as they do change their menu quite often. I'd love to try the lattes and some of the pastry baked goods.
