Pandatourbus

Okay, I do love cute things but it’s a ‘Panda Bus‘ that is free-of-charge that travels around the Asakusa area in Toyko. Even the seats inside the vehicles are decorated with colourful panda pom-pom ears.  There are two buses  a “boy” and a “girl,” and both of these buses have eyes that can wink. One moreContinue reading

I think secretly I’d like to have a superhero outfit and I would love to be a cool anime character, so when I had the opportunity for an anime portrait I couldn’t resist having it done! (This was done at Hyper Japan Exhibition that took place in Brick Lane recently).

Fashion has become very fashionable and there’s something comforting and fun about working in a virtual world especially if your only 10 years old. I think I would have liked games like this when I was little. Fashion games for girls is a huge market so it’s just not surprising that Koei have created aContinue reading

The dog is no longer man’s best friend but has become a delightful fashion accessory. Over the past few years I’ve seen quite a few fluffy pink lap dogs. I find the dogs quite amusing, cute and slightly odd – all at the same time. I must admit I’m kind of drawn to the dog,Continue reading

He just returned from Australian Fashion Week and he’s already busy in his studio planning the next collection. Kristian set up his own label inContinue reading

I’ve always liked pets and animals. I think it’s an important trait that as a human being, we like to look after other species. So when I heard about the Cat Cafe Calico, I thought what could be better! In Toyko there are now 3 cafes were you can rent a cat for about £3Continue reading

I met up with LA based designer Elaine Kim in Paris. I adore Elaine, she’s the type of girl you feel you’ve known since you were three, she wears her heart on her sleeve, and she’s just a really cool girl. Elaine has loved fashion since she was a little girl. She sells everywhere fromContinue reading

I really like Reebok trainers and have worn them for years as they fit my feet really well. I only wear trainers at the gym and at video or film shoots. I’m really careful to make sure that I don’t have smelly feet – I change my gym sock after each use and have moreContinue reading

I’m always happy when I see a great collaboration and I really hate when I see a partnership just for the sake of marketing. There’s something lazy & ugly about it. I had a blue LeSportsac in high school and it wasn’t fashionable: just very lightweight & practical with lots of pockets & zippers. I’mContinue reading

This commercial is just too over the top for me but I have to share it with you! It’s Orlando Bloom in a Japanese UNO Commercial. Uno is a hair product owned by Shiseido, the main product is Fiber Neo. maybe it works for the Japanese market?

There is a Japanese cake shop not far from Piccadilly Circus. Most of the cakes are made from Azuki beans, kidney beans, soy beans), grains (mochi-rice, rice flour, wheat),Continue reading
