Reflections of 2014


I feel like I say this every year, but gosh, where hell did the year go?! Well, let's check in with my 2014 Resolutions:

Japan 2014, Kimonos & Ramen


Back in August, I went to Japan and hopped through Osaka, Kobe, and Kyoto. Oddly enough I have yet to visit Tokyo (I don't think a 24 hour layover at Narita counts).  I noticed that I took very few pictures in Japan overall; I have trouble taking good pictures and being in the moment. Either I'm really happy with the pics I've taken, but that's all I remember doing or made amazing memories, but hate the pictures I took. *sigh*

Review: Skinfood Royal Honey Hydro Massage Gel


I usually don't review samples/things I've only tried once, but I figured I'd put in my 2 cents in anyway since I doubt I'll be ever be buying a full size. That's not to say this mask isn't any good, but I'm just not very interested in "massage" products in general (the TonyMoly Appletox Smooth Massage Peeling Cream being an's too cute aha).

The 20 Outfits of Taylor Swift's Blank Space MV


Ok, so who hasn't watched Taylor Swift's Blank Space music video yet ^_^? I'm not much of a fashionista, but even I could tell her fashion was just spectacular!  She looked absolutely fabulous every second of the MV - I don't know what I liked more, her clothes or Sean O'Pry's face :)

Anyway, posts about her outfits her are everywhere, but most of them were pretty crappy about listing what she wore in each or just have one outfit/post. So, being the Queen of Procrastination, I decided to compile ALL her outfits in one giant post for your perusing pleasure (I'm the kind of weirdo who just likes to see everything on one page).

Credits: This blog post is really just a compilation of MTV's Blank Space article (for the awesome HQ gifs), this Yahoo articleTaylor Swift Style (best TS outfit blog on the Net), and this StarWorks article. The latter was written by Joseph Cassell, Taylor Swift's stylist, so I imagine it's quite legit (though rather vague).  I also did some sleuthing for random items that didn't include pricing or specific names/links. Sadly, I couldn't find all of them :(

Studio Ghibli Exhibition in Seoul


Back in September I had a chance to check out the Studio Ghibli Exhibition in Seoul, South Korea. I'm a huge Miyazaki fan, so I thought I was going to die of happiness xD It was a pretty expensive exhibit and rather small, but totally worth it. If you're in Korea I totally recommend checking it out! It runs till March 2015 at I'Park Mall in Seoul (more info).

2014 Holiday Gift Guide: Jewelry


Four long years ago I did an Etsy Holiday 2010 gift series that featured a couple of my favorite Etsy stores. Even though I haven't posted any Gift Guides since, I've continued curating lists of indie shops I adore. Thus with the gift-giving season fast approaching, I thought it was high time to do another Gift Guide series! This time around I won't just be listing Etsy shops though, though many are indeed from Etsy :) Enjoy!

Note: In this series, I'll only be introducing shops that I haven't mentioned before so if you like, take a peek at what I posted in 2010:
