Clearly advertising works. I opened to the first spread in this month’s Nylon Japan (my most favourite magazine) and knew I had to own this watch. Reasons are as follows: 1. I am a sucker for sunshine yellow 2. I quite like Kidrobot 3. I wanted a new watch. Combine all 3 and I ended up with a watch I love even though it ticks too loudly and can’t have [...]
The newest addition to the Tokyo MUJI Cafe family opened up a few weeks ago in Aoyama. As you would expect from MUJI, the place is simple yet stylish with all the furnishings, unsurprisingly, MUJI products.
Burrito lovers rejoice! There’s a new burrito place in town.
My current online shopping obsession is ASOS. This patchwork dress is conveniently loose, which makes it a good dress for gorging yourself and not have anyone notice your post meal belly.

Don’t get me wrong, Kua ‘Aina make a decent burger but it just wasn’t spectacular. I took advantage of their anniversary burger special which only cost me ¥950 for a set – which was a price I liked. Trouble was, there wasn’t [...]
I got this amazing Laura Di Maggio leopard print bag from my new favourite shop – L’Appartement in Aoyama. It may be a little Eurotrash if worn the wrong way but I think it’s pretty damn cool. I also picked up a super comfy and perfectly fitting James Perse tee from there too. Love, love, love this shop! Nico, if I have to leave Japan early because I’m broke, I’m [...]
