I know I’m a little late but I hope you all had a wonderful day. I of course was absolutely inundated with roses and presents…. not. Hehe. I found this picture on Instagram which I thought was super appropriate for my blog. And can you believe there’s actually a hotel called Giraffe Hotel in NYC?!… Read More Happy Valentine’s Day!
I promised I would recap my thoughts on Japanese style after my holiday, so here I am following it up finally! While most aren’t exactly for me, I appreciate and definitely admire the styles on offer! You can’t help but be drawn in to their eccentricities. And Japanese women are nothing if not exquisitely well-groomed… Read More Personal Take on Japanese Fashion
Love a stroll around Shinjuku. These lights are so beautiful I had to share. X x
On Thursday Marli came over from Kyoto and introduced me to Wego. All week I had been asking her “where did those pants come from?” “Where did you buy that jacket?!” etc etc and the same response kept coming back at me. Wego in Harajuku. As I somehow walked straight past it on Harajuku’s well… Read More Back to Harajuku
When I first booked my flight to Japan (very spur of the moment I might add) everyone was telling me I just HAD to schedule in a visit to Kyoto. One of my friend’s from Melbourne was going to be there shortly after I was due to arrive too, so it made sense for me… Read More Kyoto Loving

While I don’t visit Kyoto until tomorrow, earlier this week I managed to find a… Read More Experiencing the urban hot spring at Ooedo-Onsen Monogatari
So the first “official” day of my Tokyo visit was Monday, but as I was seriously exhausted from the hectic travel delay/schedule I kinda just stuck to Shinjuku and didn’t bother venturing anywhere too complicated. I was a little over-tired and had only slept maybe 4 hours (on the plane – worst) in nearly 48… Read More Meiji Shrine and Harajuku Hanging
I booked a bit of a last minute holiday (been thinking about it for ages but hadn’t worked out the final details) and was luckily enough to have a stopover in Bali. I say lucky because there are definitely worse places you could spend your time in between flights, but in general I wouldn’t say… Read More Travel Diary #1 – Bali
Last week I did a post about my beach bag rudiments, which I am sure to most appeared ridiculously extravagant!!! I told you all how I love a good peek inside others’ bags, so this week I give you Ashleigh Vellios’ simplification. Ash is a PR/Journalism graduate and also writes her own fashion blog; Elena… Read More Inside Elena and Staci’s Beach Bag
Wishing you all a wonderful day and holiday season! It’s a gorgeous sunny day here in Perth, a nice change up from the usual 40 degree Christmas Day! I added a little video at the bottom for some verbal season greetings…just to add a little something to this generic annual post. Hope to hear from… Read More Merry Xmas Love from Giraffe Style!
