Travelling to...Japan! Shinjuku Gyoen National Garden

Exploring Shinjuku!

Nothing much to say apart from this park is absolutely beautiful! It was nice to sit down and eat underneath the trees.  They're slowly starting to blossom but unfortunately during the time I was there, only a couple of trees were nearly bloomed. However it was still lovely to walk around and explore and the weather was warm!

Here are some pictures! ٩(♡ε♡ )۶

Afterwards, we walked around the shopping areas. I loved this Sanrio store! ₍՞◌′ᵕ‵ू◌₎♡

I bought a lot of Little Twin Stars goodies from about 3 different Sanrio stores in Tokyo (and also from Kiddyland) but I'll just show them all here:

This free keyring came with my purchase!

This set of 5 socks only cost £6!

Little Twin Stars Cooking  Re-Ment and pass case!

Bought a planner for this year!

The diary section only takes up 2 pages per month...

...the majority of the planner is actually full of blank spaces to write!

Washi tape!

Deco stickers! Currently deciding where to put them in my room...

I think I might store the washi tape and stickers sets inside this jar...

And finally, a set of pens and a pencil case to match!

Stationary, the one thing I love to buy! You can never have enough pens! (ꐦ ´͈ ᗨ `͈ )

Now that I think about it, I should have bought two of everything! ( °͈▵°͈)

We also went to find Artnia, which is Square Enix's shop slash cafe. 

I bought a couple of Kingdom Hearts files and some Vincent Valentine stickers. I really wish the store was bigger though...

↑ These were pictures from the hotel, sorry! ;; ↑

So that was some of my adventures in Shinjuku! It's such a big place, we got lost so many times. But there are lots of nice shops to visit. It's good to figure out where you wanna go before you get there. Unless you like getting lost. Or have pocket wifi which I did not

Travelling to...Japan! Shibuya

So I've just come back from my trip to Japan! I've been saving up all of last year for this trip. I was originally planning to go in October but decided to go in March because I really needed to go on holiday, work was that stressful. So I made a really silly impulsive decision to just go on holiday, because I was that upset about work.

I'll just be posting about certain places that I visited. This holiday was about me exploring AND relaxing, so there were days where I didn't really do anything. So this will be a mini series about what I did in Japan.

Since it was my first time there, I wanted to stay near the Yamanote Line so that it would be easy to get to the main places I wanted to see. So I stayed in Gotanda, not too far from the station. It was a nice quiet location and perfect for me to get around.

So I will talk about visiting Shibuya for the first time!

Went to Shibuya 109 be honest I wasn't very impressed,  I think because my style or rather the style that I like, wasn't reflected in the shopping mall. However everything was tidy and really well arranged. Just looking at the staff, well they were supermodels basically and dressed impeccably! They really represented their shops well.

Saw an EXO billboard!

I just had to take a picture of Shibuya's Disney store, omggggg!

Went to HMV and I purchased two Ayumi Seto style books! 

Ayumi is my favourite model ♡ I'm really hoping to buy some of her clothes from her store! She's selling some of her collection through Lazy Oaf, a British clothes brand that I also really like (a lot of my tote bags come from them hehe). She's also just done a collaboration with MILK and I really want a t-shirt but unfortunately it's only available in the Osaka store.

I'll make a detailed post on the books later. Kidult Girl came out at the end of last year and Ayumi Kidz has been out for a couple of years I think.

This was my outfit for the day:

The red check shirt is one of my favourite pieces. It's from Ruki's the GazettE's brand RADMARKET. (It really is Ruki's brand though lol)

The mesh Tokyo top was from Forever 21! I have a thing for mesh tops lately, they're so easy to layer!

I'll be posting pretty regularly about this trip, so expect more details about my trip soon!

Thanks for reading!
