Let’s start with the obvious: new blog, who’s this? I’ve been meaning to do a complementary introduction post to what I have on my About Me, especially because with the world’s current situations, you’re forced to either learn more about yourself or learn new things to avoid going insane, heh. So let’s get started!
A Little More About Me
Resortwear and surf fashion is my boom. I love oldschool Gyaru already, that much is pretty obvious but knowing that this was first started out with brands such as Billabong, Hurley, Volcom, and others makes it that much better. One of the things I’m implementing on my blog now are my latest finds which will usually have to do with these brands. In fact, this usually has a few items that I personally bought for myself. Beach brands are insanely comfortable, fun to wear, and have insane longevity since they’re higher up than fast fashion brands.
The beach is my life. My recent trip to Hawai’i further established this and I forever regret having left Los Angeles and its many beaches for the desert, but at the same time being in the desert isn’t entirely too bad. If I were to move anywhere within the US, I’d live in Hale’iwa. However, my goal is to move to Japan once my business gets better established. Japan wasn’t ever really my first choice though; for the longest time, I was dead set on living in Morocco. I still want to live in Morocco at some point, but Japan is my first goal for the time being.
On the topic of Japan… I’m seriously living for the car culture that Japan has. It’s a little more extensive than the car culture that the US has (primarily from California), but it’s SO GOOD. I could spend hours talking about the different car and motorcycle makes and models that I adore lately. I’m still learning, but it’s really cool to see the golden era of car culture in Japan from the 80’s. Another thing is the music: I started first being interested in Visual Kei (pre-2008) and J-Rock, but what I listen to most now is J-Urban/Hip Hop.
Traveling is one of my biggest passions. Right after photography! I solo travel as much as I can and my first real serious solo travel of the year (and probably the last due to current world events) was my trip to O’ahu. I had so much fun, but it still taught me of the dangers that women face as solo travelers. Regardless of the situation, I’ve always loved getting out of my comfort zone when it comes to traveling. My biggest testament to this will be my fully funded traveling and living in Japan (which I’m incredibly nervous about). However…
I’m painfully shy. Which makes the next bit most difficult. I’ve been interested in parapara and hip hop choreos for the longest time but never do anything about it because I don’t want to make it public. At the same time, even if I do it for myself, I feel it defeats the purpose if I can’t share my progress so yeah I’m pretty backwards on this lol. This also explains why I can’t for the life of me get through all of the pending outfit posts from my last two hauls: NERVE-WRACKING!
A few of my favorite things: Music is pretty much my world and has been for the longest time; I grew up on it–there was literally no night where my dad wasn’t blasting music on TV every night. My taste has expanded significantly, but I always come back to 90’s rock. Lately, I’ve been very much into soul, funk, and oldies (pre-Motown). Additionally, the sixties and seventies are remarkable to me. Being a fan of music, I love the different music tour posters. On the topic of posters, travel posters are other favorites.
