How to Prepare for Your First International Gyaru Meet

I remember the first time I went to an international gyaru meet; I went with my gal Chewiee and honestly it was one of my favourite gyaru meets ever. That's not to say that it was a completely smooth process - about half an hour before we met everyone I ...

4 Days in Amsterdam – Travel Diary

I did it, guys - I went to Amsterdam. I can't believe I've never been here before but I'm so happy to finally tick it off my '30 before 30' list. My hubby and I went there to celebrate the second part of our Honeymoon (as we decided to split ...

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 ...

Whimsical Wandering: Himeji Castle & Hello Kitty Café

Whimsical Wandering: Himeji Castle & Hello Kitty Café

Most castles in England are in ruins, so you could imagine what it was like for me to see a fully-formed and beautiful Himeji castle in Japan. It was a real building - all standing proud on top of a hill, and it looked amazing. I had seen photos of ...

Todai-ji Temple and Butt-Biting Deer in Nara

While I did not enjoy getting my butt bit by a deer, it was an experience going to Nara. It was quite far from where we were staying in Kyoto so we made the decision to just visit the Todai-ji Temple and boy did we make a good choice. I ...
