Tokyo Swan Boat

Ahh Japan I love you and your love of all things kawaii. Where else will you see Hello Kitty road work signage? Or a super cute alien bunny rabbit called Pipo-kun as the mascot for the police? Or hot pink swan boats? I found first discovered these swan boats on my first trip to Tokyo back in 2003 (back before the internet was useful so I really did just stumble upon them with no help from google) and I've loved them ever since. There are lots of swan boat locations throughout Japan but these are my personal favourites located in Ueno park. I knew that's where I was heading that day so I wore a cute pink outfit to match, getting squeals of "kawaii" from Japanese people passing in other boats made it all worthwhile, lol. Whilst in Hoi An Vietnam last month I had the local tailors make me this cute pink coat. I had wanted a more pastel pink colour but this was the closest that they had available and I'm kinda happy it's a bright pink now - it stands out more. Hoi An is famous for it's tailor made clothes, if you're going to Vietnam I'd really recommend visiting Hoi An and getting something made and staying in the town as it's honestly one of the most beautiful places I've ever been.

I bought this bag during my one night stop over in Kuala Lumpur on my way over to Tokyo from Vietnam. After nearly a month of virtually no shopping in Vietnam as our days were filled with beaches or exploring temples, discovering I had booked a capsule hotel located within a shopping mall in KL was quite the pleasant surprise. It sounds sad but I almost cried when I saw this cute bag in the store window. I guess I missed shopping? But guys the bag is amazing - it has sequins inside the clear pocket part that MOVE AROUND! So yeah my tears were justified - it's a thing of beauty lol.

I bought this dress on my first shopping day in Harajuku at the Super Lovers store in LaForet, it was just too cute to pass up. Every time I wear it I get Gwen Stefani's Harajuku Girls stuck in my head.
