As a parent, what's more amazing than having children's books delivered to your doorstep!? The minute I became a mother, the first thing I did was look for a list of books that I MUST read to Zooey.  But, after the years went by and life got busier, I found myself just taking Zooey to Barnes & Noble once in a while and let her pick out books that she was interested in. I also found myself buying random books from garage sales and flea markets. However, recently, I was introduced to BOOKROO, a Children's Book delivery service that sends your kids books every month. We received our first set of books over the weekend and Zooey couldn't wait to unwrap the package! If you're reading this it's your lucky day! I have a $4 off discount coupon code for you to try this service! Click here for the discount link: http://bit.ly/1Ru9MmU

Scroll to see how EXCITED and HAPPY Zooey is!

She's soooo serious about this book!!!

You can buy these subscriptions as a gift too! What a wonderful gift for your mommy friend's too right? Here's the discount code again: http://bit.ly/1Ru9MmU

Gosh it's been a while since I've been to GVGV's showroom. Their new collection is SO good. Tho this collection is to be S/S, there were a lot of long coats and bomber jackets. It's always interesting to see how the Tokyo people wear these pieces. Can't wait!

 The theme this season was Russia.

OMG, who cares about The Robot Restaurant when you have 
 Let me just explain to you why this is a MUST SEE spot in Harajuku. When you go to the top floor of the YM building in Harajuku (across from La Foret) you will find this colorful entrance. The red carpet is supposed to be the tongue of the Monster and you will be entering his stomach. 

 Someone will greet you at the door, and will take you to your seats..
We were taken directly to the VIP room but before I get there, let me introduce the other craziness in this place..It's like a twisted version of Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory and so much fun!

 This was the restroom. 
 Little balls everywhere. So much details. Soooo coooool.
Ah so cute!

Now, I don't know if I'm allowed to reveal where in the cafe the VIP room is, but it's actually through a secret door..and the entire room is PINK..with this cat on the wall, and karaoke. OMG.

 Ellen & Francis 
That box like thing next to Ellen is how you order. Every detail of this place is just so insane and I didn't want to leave this room!!! 
Our chicken + waffles (so good) with colorful Dip + colorful chopstix!

 Our yummy Limade sorbet. I wanted to try everything, but being on a diet (lol) I didn't want to get too crazy! 

Anyone who visits Tokyo needs visit here. I mean, Ariana Grande came here when she was in Japan! The food is not bad, and the experience is just trippy. I want to come back here with Zooey..I think the kids would have SO much fun here! So perfect for birthday parties + any kind of party!! They are actually having a Halloween Party! So sad I can't make it! But if you're in Tokyo here's the info: Kawaii Monster Halloween Party

Hello. I just came back from Tokyo and settling back in from this trip has been rough, so apologies for the late update!! I know that I used to be able to update my blog daily..but gosh there aren't enough hours in the day!  Anyhow, It's been a year since I went back to Tokyo and this time I was invited by Maybelline NY, Japan again.  I didn't make it to JFW last season and was so grateful to be invited again. I brought along with me 2 LA bloggers to be the official Instagrammers for Maybelline.  I'm sure you've heard of them. They are the cutest! Ellen & Francis AKA #lolanlora
 The morning after their arrival I took them to eat at BILLS in Harajuku

 After that we went to the LINE STORE

 After a little exploring of Harajuku and getting street snapped, work started. We headed backstage of the TODD SNYDER show to see the make up. 
 Todd Snyder is a men's brand but they had 4 female models so the make up was pretty natural.

Below are some of the pieces. 

You can see the entire collection here: TODD SNYDER S/S 2016
How cute were the men's clothes on the female models?
