A Blissful Place for Manga Lovers!
For the longest time I only have one reason for visiting Japan. Nope, it's not for food. Nope, it's not for fashion. Yes. It's for hot spring! I may look an average 20 something gal but I'm a grandma at heart. I've been told that many times because of my peculiar lifestyle. I love jacuzzi and hot spring is one of the thing I've always wanted to try after watching dramas that features this fabulous chamber. Even though I really wanted to visit Japan I didn't think hot spring would justify the trip because Taiwan also have hot spring. The ticket and accommodation in Taiwan is more budget-friendly than Japan. It was not until today I found another reason to go visit Japan. Books & Bed This concept is really intriguing. Though, I don't openly express it, I'm a manga girl at heart. Throw me in a room with a bunch of manga and I will be more than happy to read them. This is place is truly a gem for book lovers and someone who appreciates minimal architect. At Book and Bed Hostel you get a beautiful view of the city at night and get unlimited access to book in their library until your eyes become drowsy. The industrial interior design is filled with cement walls, wooden bookshelves and wooden single beds. Obviously, it's not a place for you to get a comfy pillow and cozy bed. If you are solo or duo traveler, this is the type of place that will bring you a blissful evening. What more do you want from a short vacation getaway than a place to sleep and get inspired? Anyone else feel the same way?
My Food at the Sailor Moon Cafe! (Talk About It Tuesday)
Soooo, for this week's talk about it Tuesday (started by @invinsybll) , the theme was Anime Accessorizing, but I already showed off my accessories last week! So, instead, I wanted to show off something fun I got to do back in September when I took a short trip to Japan. Now, I don't like to brag, but I was lucky enough to go to the Sailor Moon Cafe that was going on at that time!! I haven't really talked about it before, so here goes~ Now, I didn't take many pictures , but this is the food that I ate! Isn't it cute? It was a Sailor Jupiter themed bento box. I loved it! Everything in it was tasty. The rice balls were mushroom veggie rice balls, the spaghetti was sweet, and the little pieces of cutlet were seafood cutlet! Yummmmmmyyyy!! I also got a Tuxedo Mask Coffee! Isn't it cute?! It really didn't taste THAT great (ever had a cold, canned coffee? It sort of tasted like that, lol). But it was adorable and that's all that matters. I also got the Sailor Mars coaster you see in the background, and a little Sailor Mars dessert, too!! I didn't take pictures of the interior, but it was basically just a bar set up with a lot of memorabilia. They played episodes of the show on the TV screens throughout the room, and music from the series the whole time! You could text in a request & they would play that, too. They also had goods for purchase, but it was a bit pricey just to be there so I didn't buy anything. And that was my experience at the Sailor Moon Cafe!
3 Trendy Boho Looks Perfect For Festival Season
Festival season is upon us. Whether your going to Coachella, Governor's Island Ball or just festival fashion, it's necessary that you dress the part. While festivals are an integral part of every fashion and music lovers spring and summer, the fashion is what really stands out. When you think of festivals the first thing that usually comes to mind is bohemian. Boho chic is a huge fashion staple at festivals. You don't have to go all out to give out some serious boho vibes. You can easily rock some distressed shorts and an oversized tee shirt with combat boots or a crochet dress and a wide brim hat and easily be considered boho. If you're looking for a bit of boho-spiration this season, keep scrolling below to see the three festival looks that will help you get your true boho style down packed. Look #1: This look is chic and super comfortable. A crop top and a maxi skirt, it doesn't get much better. Add a few accessories and you're good to go. Look #2: This look is a bit more casual and laid back. Because everyone loves oversized sweaters and distressed denim. Oh, yeah. Can't forget the Dr. Martens. A serious festival staple. Look #3: If you're a true free spirit, this look in particular you will more so gravitate towards. The matching boots, hat and bag in contrast with the white crochet dress go together perfectly to give you an effortless flower child look. Which look would be your go-to festival look?

Flying to Seoul for the First Time: Tips and Tricks!
I'm the kind of traveler that likes to know exactly what to expect when I get to a new country. I memorize airport maps, bus stops, and subway lines so that in case I can't find wifi or if I'm running low on time, I can find my way on my own. This is especially true in countries where English is not the native language. When I first came to Korea, I was obviously a little nervous. I was going there to study abroad so there were people meeting me to take me to my university, but I still had to get off the plane, through immigration, and somehow find this one cafe that was our meeting point all by myself. I've been traveling since I was literally 4 months old so I wasn't too scared, but I wish I had had a little more info on what Incheon was actually like. So, for those of you who are planning to visit Korea for the first time soon, I shared what it is like to fly into Incheon and get all the way to Seoul. This includes some things to expect with the landing (aka why Korea is called 'Land of the Morning Calm') and how to go fill out immigration forms. I hope this is helpful! Enjoy^^~ Other facts: - Incheon airport is about 2 hours outside of Seoul! - There are actually 2 international airports in Seoul, Gimpo and Incheon. Most likely, you'll be flying into Incheon which is the largest, but if you're flying in from Japan you might be taken to Gimpo which is slightly closer to Seoul! - Incheon airport has SO MUCH TO DO including a rollerskating rink, traditional music concerts, a movie theatre, a capsule hotel, a museum, and places where you can wear hanbok and make Korean crafts!
