happy valentine's day

It's Sunday, it's Valentine's Day, and I'm getting ready for my day with these makeup essentials. NARS is always an absolute favorite, but I love Maybelline for eyes and the NAKED 2 eyeshadow palette makes a perfectly subtle smokey eye. When I want something different with my eyeliner, I go with my red RMK liquid liner. And a new favorite of mine is this YSL Lumiere Divine highlighting face powder. It sets my foundation just right.

I'll be getting lunch with some of my girlfriends for Japan Restaurant Week (sort of like Dine LA, where participating restaurants have special courses prepared for lunch and dinner). I'll be posting photos later :) I hope ya'll enjoy your Valentine's Day as well! 

今日は日曜日、バレンタインデー。待ちに待った日なので、メイクに気合いが入ります♡ NARSは前から好きなブランドなのですが、アイメイクはMaybelline が好きです。やりすぎないスモーキーアイはUrban Decay のNAKED 2 のアイシャドーパレットがオススメですよ!アイラインを違う色にしたい時は、RMKの赤いリキッドラインを引いたりします。そして、最近気に入っているのはYSL ルミールディヴァインシリーズのフェースパウダーです!ベースをちゃんとセットしてくれてる気がします。

今日は、Japan Restaurant Week に参加しているレストランで、友達とランチしてきます!またあとで写真載せます!皆さんも良いバレンタインデーを♡

I just came back home after a 5-day hiatus from blogging. The first three were due to a shoot which contents I cannot disclose just yet. But all I can say is, my trip to Busan was very much needed after those long 3 days! I spent the night at the Park Hyatt in Busan (which was amazing!), and visited some of the surrounding areas. The view from my room was gorgeous during both night and day, the food was divine, and the weather, although chilly, was beautiful. Because it's so close to the ocean and is a port city sort of like San Francisco or Yokohama, the air is cleaner and I particularly enjoyed the architecture there. And coincidentally, I arrived in Busan just in time for the Chinese New Year. Hope you all enjoyed your extended weekend if you celebrated it! Have a great week.

Kiehl's Japan Press Conference

Kiehl's will be releasing a brand new product this year, and tonight the blogger press conference was held at Ebisu Act Square. The "Nightly Refining Micro-Peel Concentrate"made with the husk of quinoa (!!) is said to be revolutionary in skincare, and I have yet to find out how it fares with my skin. I'm sure most of you know by now that I'm a huge Kiehl's fan and I can't wait to try this concentrate. Stay tuned for an update on this product later on!

Luxurious in Ginza

coat: Forever 21; top: Uniqlo
skirt: JAMS Project; boots: Aldo
clutch: GUM; earrings: SLY
sunglasses: ZeroUV

It's so much easier to look luxurious in the winter by just adding a faux fur coat to any outfit. And it doesn't have to be expensive either. I picked up this Forever 21 coat for $100 USD, and it's my favorite outerwear of the season. Since it doesn't have a collar, balancing it out with a turtleneck is my go-to way to style the coat. And isn't this wool maxi skirt so perfect? I love the bow at the waist. And what better place to take these OOTD photos than Ginza, the high-end part of Tokyo for shopping and dining. 

冬のファッションで、高級感を演出しやすいと思います。私が着用しているフェークファーコートで、どんなコーデも高く見えますよ。実は、Forever 21で1万円で見つけました。今期一番お気に入りのアウターです!襟がないコートなので、このようにタートルニットと合わせて首もとのバランスをとっています。そして、このマキシスカートは本当にパーフェクト!スリットとウエストのリボンがとても可愛い。ちょっと大人っぽくて高級感のあるコーデの写真は、ブランド店や高級レストランで溢れている銀座で撮るのがぴったりでした♡
