Tobi Haul

Style

Some of the spring/summer stuff I ordered from tobi.com


To be completely honest, all of the things that came were a little big for me (as you can probably see in the pictures). Everything I got was in a size medium, which is what I normally wear so I was kind of bummed when the pieces that came didn’t fit me perfectly haha. Because of this, I highly reccomend checking the measurements and exact sizing before ordering 😉 I still wear all of these pieces and definitely don’t think they’re toooo bad, the service and shipping from tobi was also amazing, so overall, I can definitely reccomend it. Here’s what I got!

Down Time in Moresby

Travel

Touching Down in Port Moresby somehow felt like coming home… Even though it was only my second time in the country.

While I was in Papua New Guinea during my spring break, I spent half of my time by the beach, and half of it in the capital, Port Moresby. No joke in saying that I could live there and am definitely made for the tropics. 

Spring Style Inspiration

Inspiration, Style

I can’t put in to words how happy I am that winter is over and that it’s officially Spring, the weather has been amazing in Fukuoka recently because the sun has been shining, and all of the cherry blossom flowers are in bloom (ironic because it’s raining today).

The theme of this season’s style for me is relaxed and basically rocking the style of looking laid back and casual yet still elegant and put together. That sounds pretty hard to fathom but I feel like the pieces I’ve shown here provide some pretty good examples

Happy Spring!!


“Suits” 

Largely inspired by classic pin-striped or silk pajama sets. Wearing PJ’s outside of the house (especially to school) is something that I’m very strangely suuper comfortable and accustomed to doing, and because I actually love the vibe this gives off, I think a lot of things can be paired together so that they give off a similar aesthetic but are a bit more structured and put-together.

I thought denim on denim and wearing double of the same color was the biggest fashion sin ever until very recently. I actually love the way matching sets look with each other (if they are pulled off correctly) and think that there is such a cute vintage look in matching your top with your bottoms.

I haven’t really experimented with denim on denim (yet) but have matched loose black pants with with a loose black top tied into a knot at the bottom with a denim jacket or a long cardigan and love the way it looks.

Fukuoka Diary 5: Atago Adventures

Life

January 28th

The first thing I saw when I opened my eyes this morning was the clear blue sky. I was instantly in a better mood… that and of course the fact that I’d be spending my weekend doing something other than school work. On this day, Jo and I decided to explore Fukuoka a little more and go to places we hadn’t been before.

Fukuoka Diary 4: Shrines and City Life

Life

December 19th 

Woke up, made my self a smoothie, showered and got ready to Ed Sheeran. Literally could not wait to get out of the house and meet up with my best friend after 4 days of being trapped at home. A few minutes past 10, Jo came over to drop her things for the night and we left the house. Camera’s at hand, arm in arm, we made our way downtown. With the intention of Christmas shopping we spent (literally) 9 hours in the city wandering around, thrifting, eating, sitting in the park and visiting a local shrine.

Perk of being Eurasian: Celebrating the traditional holidays from both of your cultures. #mixedkidlife


Eid in the summer and Christmas in the winter, and I am DEFINITELY not complaining. I spent Christmas this year with my family in Germany and it was (as usual), filled with presents, good food, family, champaign, smiles, and good conversation. You can read last year’s post here.

So traditionally, I don’t actually really celebrate Christmas. When I’m here, in Heidelberg, however, I go all out. I can confidently say that this year I was part of the Christmas hype and first hand witnessed the stress of Christmas shopping (or in my case creating), decorating the Christmas tree, baking Christmas cookies, and even singing Christmas carols… even though we sounded awful.

Fukuoka Diary 2 : Fall

Life

I love the fall. The past few weeks have seriously been so beautiful in Fukuoka even though the temperature has dropped like crazy and it’s become impossible for me to leave bed every morning. Last week especially, the leaves were all in different colors and the sun was shining almost every day. Obviously I had to take some pictures so here they are hahaha.

November 5th

The night before, these pictures were taken, Jo and I went into the city for dinner and did some shopping then came home and just chilled… It was a pretty late night but as usual it was a great time filled with jamming to each others soundclouds and partying in our underwear. The next morning we lugged ourselves out of bed, made breakfast and ate it while watching ‘Bridget Jones Baby’ (so good btw) then head outside to the park.
