OSAKA TO KYOTO PART 1 GOJO GUEST HOUSE

Thursday, September 29, 2016

Of all the 3 cities we visited during this trip, we got lost the most in Kyoto. 

Which is odd since we only had 2 lines to navigate as compared to 8 in Osaka.

I think it's because a lot of the signs here are in Kanji and some stops have little to 0 significant landmarks because it can get very "provincial". As a tourist lost in translation, traditional house upon traditional house can blend into one blurry picture which often lead to confusion.

The only station I found to be "iconic" was the Kyoto main station, all others tended to look alike.

Traveling at night didn't help much either....

Saturday, September 24, 2016

Newcastle, Australia has been in the news lately since being crowned one of the hottest cities to visit by the Lonely Planet.

That’s surprising since not even Sydney or Melbourne have ever been featured on the list. Newcastle was described by the Lonely Planet as a special combination of sophistication, imagination, and laid-back surf culture.

VIVERE SALON REVIEW | BALAYAGE | OMBRE +++

Wednesday, September 21, 2016

You never know how badly you need a makeover until after after you get one. 

I am pretty low maintenance. I hardly ever get my nails done because I always work with my hands and I hate having to sit in a chair for hours just waiting for hair dye to set.

So I hardly visit the salon unless I absolutely HAVE to.

That's also why I usually buy boxed dye at the drugstore to touch up my whites...which I have also been too lazy busy to do lately.

But I had a professional shoot in a couple of days and I wasn't ready at all so I decided to book an appointment for a makeover at Vivere Salon.

SEAFOLLY'S FORGIVING SWIMSUITS

Monday, September 19, 2016

Seafolly is where you shop for swimwear that makes you feel good about yourself.


My expectations were low as I headed to Grind, Up Town Center for the event. It was raining hard and I often end up disheartened whenever I shop for bathing suits...especially now that I haven't been working out for over a year, so I almost cancelled.

The only reason I went ahead was because a) it was partly work for Beach Born and b) we were given the impression that we were gonna be treated to a generous amount of gift certificates for  shopping.
