Uniqlo – The Flagship Store Opening…

Posted in Events by yoshi on October 8, 2011

Woohoo! Just received my invite to attend the store opening next week! Can’t wait! Check out their invitations, so thoughtful!

Oh yea, apparently my face is on some posters in the city… my friend Nat found one on his way to a meeting and let me know where to find it hahaha! So, if you find another one, let me know! LOL

busy few weeks… follow my moves…

Apologies, don’t have much time to update the bloggy blog, but in the meantime, you can keep up with my shenanigans on Twitter and Instagram!

Oh yes, I thought someone stole my phone, turns out, I actually left it in our office gym and someone found it sitting in a locker… looks like I checked the wrong locker when I was frantically looking for it – SMH and FML. I’ve downloaded mobile me just in case it happens again! ::knock on wood::

PS. I’m updating the design/build of my blog too… launching soon! Yay!


outfit posts: juuuuusssttt peachy…

Posted in Outfit, Shoes Shoes Shoes by yoshi on June 25, 2011

One of the things I love about summer is that I am able to get a few shades darker and wear peaches and pinks!

Oh yea, my perm is growing out and I’m finally able to mess around with different hairstyles. I was tempted to cut my hair a few days ago, but after I brush out the curls and tie that shit back, I’m kinda feelin’ it… for now =P

outfit deets: f21 denim jacket | h&m dress (damn, I’ve had this dress for about 6 years now, maybe that’s why its so tight =X) | ASOS sandals

outfit deets: dress (NastyGal) | hellz bellz denim | MadeMe x Vans chukkas

Shop Nasty Gal

And just because I still get the question… yes… that’s me.


on blogging for a living…

Posted in Blogosphere by yoshi on May 22, 2011

one of the first questions i get asked by my readers (hehehe, sounds so funny, i actually have readers – i mean, like, outside of my “friends circle”), is – “how come you don’t blog professionally?”

trust me, i’ve entertained this idea numerous times over the past, what, 6 years?

although a few of my friends blog for a living, i don’t think its quite the lifestyle or career path for me. blogging is a hobby of mine. its a way to keep me connected with my friends and family as well as a means to hopefully inspire people to “get up, get out, and get something.”

if blogging became my profession, i wouldn’t have any outlet to look forward to. blogging would then become a job, and that’s just no fun.

actually, now that i’m writing and thinking about this, i could just as easily quit my job and focus on this blog and find ways to get sponsored and get funding to make a living as a “digital journalist,” hell, it would probably get me outdoors more!

BUT, i love living a “double life.” i love being a producer. i love the challenge. and i love being a part of something larger than just being labeled as a “blogger,” “influencer,” or dare i say it: “tastemaker.” (bleh!) but most of all, who am i kidding, i love the financial perks of doing what i do and working where i work =P

nowadays, i do find it harder and harder to be introduced as a legitimate blogger. i feel as if this culture has been overly exposed, leaving a sour taste in this “industry,” making it difficult to be taken seriously as opposed to saying, “hi, i’m a producer.”

be that as it may, i am still passionate about sharing my world with all of you. my opinions, my photos, my belly, my interests – all for your pleasure and for my sanity.

on another note, i love reading the comments some of you leave me and how i may have inspired you in one way or another or being able to bring you the first look at a new product. truth is, each comment i receive inspires ME to work harder and continue to put out quality posts (or random, funny shit lol) for all of you.

with that – thanks for giving me your feedback – i look forward to them! so leave me comments g’damnit!


i see youuuuuuuu….
