TURNING JAPANESE

Dear Internets,

As some of you may know, my sister (pixel hazard) and I recently embarked on a heavily anticipated trip to Japan. It was everything I had hoped for and more. The shopping was incredible, the people were so lovely and the food, well.. the food was a food lovers’ paradise.

Of course we couldn’t go to Japan without visiting the well-renowned ‘Harajuku lane’ in Tokyo. Being the excited little school girl that I am, I was almost completely decked out in all of my new Japanese finds. I wandered down the lane with my Minnie Mouse bow from Tokyo Disneyland and my $3 eyeball socks eagerly soaking up my surroundings.

We were constantly baffled by how cute the people and the clothes were and perhaps even more surprised to hear so many of the girls whisper “kawaii!!” as they passed us. I admittedly went a little crazy with my shopping in Japan, but come on, how often do you get to go to Japan?

When my sister showed me this Scooby Doo shirt at a Japanese Op shop, my long-standing obsession with Scooby Doo was all but enough to ensure that I bought it without a second thought. The denim Wrangler jacket was another find from the same store and considering i’d been looking for one for who knows how long now, I definitely wasn’t leaving without it.

The Alice in Wonderland bag was a lovely gift from my sister and yet another purchase from Tokyo Disneyland. It’s nice having all these mementoes from Japan, and I suppose the fact that I can actually wear them doesn’t hurt either. Japan is a definite ‘bucket-list’ destination, I would highly recommend either adding it to your list or visiting and finally crossing it off!
