Another good day

Today was another day I got to spend with my friend Angie. We headed to Jica Cafe Terrace in Minato Mirai (behind World Porters) for lunch. I thought it was a restaurant but it was more like a cafeteria. The menu was limited but for 680Y, I could not complain. I ordered Friend oysters over curry sauce and white rice and Angie had some Chili con carne over rice. I also took a side of potatoes and fried fish for my baby boy. I think we were both satisfied with our food. Plus the view is to die for. If it was less chilly we would have eaten outside in the terrace. Maybe in Summer?

Anyway, here is what I wore:

Grey beret - Can't remember where I got it
Trench coat - H&M
Sweater - Uniqlo
Dress - Thrifted
Jeggins - Ross
Bag- Honey's
Shoes - Australia







I think this dress must have been the first thing I thrifted in the USA. I just loved the check design. Plus it is a wrap around which means that even if I gain weight I can still wear it. Although it has been sad to realise that I…

Eclipse

We have been blessed with nice days recently. It is a break I appreciate since these past weeks were really gloomy and cold. Saturday was a particular fun day for me. I attended a kids bday party with my"other family" in Japan, which consists of two other couples with two daughters each. I love being with them because it gives me a break from boys. I cannot help but beam at the girls who only want to wear pink or enjoy princess dresses. And I so wanted to play with their barbies. I am not sure what GOD has in stores for me but I wish I do get a girl (or two) in the future. Imagine the fun I would have dressing her up and shopping with her. My husband will probably go bankrupt with us so I need a job before that (so I could save).
Anyway here is what I wore:

White beret- random shop in former Cial Yokohama
White shirt - thrifted
Fur vest - thrifted
Jeans - thrifted
Boots - G.U.



I love the entire ensemble. I thrifted the vest a couple of weeks ago in 390 mart. I was just loo…

Chilier, Chilly, less chilly I hope

As Winter approached and the temperatures were still high, I was still dreaming of having a warm season this year. But all my dreams were shattered after last week's temperature drop. One day we were in the 19 degrees and the next, it fell to 7. And to top it all, it started to rain.

Yesterday was one of those bad weather days. It was cold, raining. And I was this close to tears because I wished I had a car or could drive in this country instead of taking the bus and climbing hills to go to my house.

Yet today was better. Today was a good day, weather wise. The sun was out. It was still chilly but bearable. As usual I decided to take a stroll instead of going straight home. I had a Xmas party with some mothers and their toddlers at my son's school in the morning. As soon as the party ended, I took a walk around Yamate Cho and Motomachi.

I have to say that I am lucky that my son's school is located in one of the most beautiful areas in Yokohama. It is so beautiful that ev…
