this months copy of japanese publication, popeye, is pages and pages of lowdown on what to do in new york. im really curious to read more because there are SO many nooks and crannies in that wonderful city, that every time i go, my trip is completely different. after im done with this mountain of work, i hope to put together a little guide of my favorite things in the city. heres a band i discovered last time i was there: newyorklovediary (뉴욕러브다이어리). check out my favorite song by them HERE.

with the thought of my gpa constantly looming over my head, i’d say more than ever, i’m dressing for comfort. i had looked into buying nb’s a few times in beijing, but never actually went through with the purchase until now. with the help of my twitter + instagram + facebook amigos, i picked out this colorway of 574 new balances. not only am i loving this new balance video made by dee, im enjoying the revival of classic sneakers in a quirky, preppy way. throw on a quaint tee, some slacks, and a pair of fuzzy socks and you’re all set! ..pascal grob gets me!
meet the latest and greatest addition to the cute-objects-i-like-to-keep-on-my-desk club. this little guy is from the happy labbit series (as opposed to the not so happy smorkin’ labbits). mine came with a cigar, tongue, moustache and glasses, and bubblegum. purchased at kid robot in miami.
highly anticipated visit to nota bene! if you haven’t figured it out yet, i’m a really huge dork and the queen of kitsch, so stationary is what gets me off. i also really like list making and doodling things i see around me. i don’t think my friends understand why i have drawings of fake boobie trannies from south beach or really hip babes from london doodled in my notepads. nor can i explain the amazing feeling i get when i make endless amounts of lists. ie. what to do this morning: wake up, brush hair (maybe???!!?!?), leave house.
anyway, i didn’t buy much, as i’m currently the winning bidder on a million moleskines on ebay. i usually use muji/kidrobot stuff. i did grab some fieldnotes pencils, a sharpener and some staples for this cute lil guy i got for christmas. aaand they have an art gallery on the second floor. nick and i proceeded to fall in love with the space, and asked if they’d be willing to let us move in.

verbal and yoon are such an explosive, creative couple. as a result of yoon wanting to live in tokyo, they both started up ambush; an affordable jewelry line worn by girly girls and kanye west alike. they stated in an interview that they are always looking for something fresh and like pushing their style to new limits, but most of all having fun. on the side, they dj and make music and thats how this doc martens collab came into place with a cover of the runaways ‘cherry bomb’. you can catch verbal (of teriyaki boyz) on hypebeast, and the couple also has a blog section for vogue hommes japan. to hear more about them, here is an interview they did with hypebeast.
