I did the thing - I ticked off a major item off my bucket list by going to Warner Bros Studios Tour during the Hogwarts in the Snow period for Christmas. And boy could I tell you just how exciting it was! I had been planning this moment for months ...

Down the Rabbit Hole: Alice in Wonderland Afternoon Tea at Kona

Down the Rabbit Hole: Alice in Wonderland Afternoon Tea at Kona

"Cup of tea, anyone?" is perhaps one of the most stereotypically British things we say and I felt oh-so-stereotypical when I found myself on the train to London for afternoon tea with my gal pals Chewiee and Maz. It wasn't just any afternoon tea, though, but Alice in Wonderland themed ...

I Left My Heart in Tokyo: Gyaru Life in Shibuya!

I remember the excitement building as I stood grasping onto the train handles, counting down the stops on the Yamanote line to Shibuya. I have been waiting for this moment ever since I found out about gyaru - it is the birthplace of gyaru after all, and I couldn't wait ...

My Japan Haul – DaTuRa, MA*RS, Sanrio and Many More

I've been to Japan and haven't bought a thing... Said no one ever! And trust me, I am still on the road to financial recovery despite it being over a month since I've been in the magical land of Hello Kitty and matcha KitKat. It was so worth it, though, ...
