Allow me to pick up where I left off for August. It’s been quite a long September but I wanted to keep myself and my mind busy by doing things that keep me mindlessly occupied, even if that means editing old photos. See, I can’t even compose a straight sentence.

This time of the year is usually a time when I’m the happiest. Fall never fails to lift my spirit as I can finally stop worrying about if my legs are spotlessly shaved for skirts and shorts. This year, in particular, I’m really drawn to rusty shades of browns and oranges. I can’t wait to wear this fall-of-a-floral skirt through the next few weeks of cooler temps or so with cropped knits and even oversized jackets (maybe corduroy or something since it seems to be trending at the moment).

Anyway, this is the first of maybe not many more full outfit posts in a while. Hope this makes you rethink fall florals, or midi skirts of some sort because I spent about 2 hours running back and forth self-timer-ing for these six photos.

A Radiant Day in Tokyo with Clé De Peau Beauté

Tuesday, September 11, 2018

Shiseido, Clé De Peau Beauté, Tokyo, Ginza Style, #RadiantDay, #RadiantJourney, Japanese number one beauty brand, luxurious Japanese skincare / A Radiant Day in Tokyo with Clé De Peau Beauté / FOREVERVANNY
I have always admired the thoughtfulness and close attention to details that can be found in pretty much all aspects of life in Japan. Hey, it's one of the reasons I decided to move to Tokyo in the first place.

My love for Japan actually wasn't one that happened at the first encounter, but I can confidently say that it has grown tremendously. In fact, not being completely head over heels for Japan at the very beginning opened up some curiosities and concerns for this place that deepened my appreciation over time. The more that I get to know and learn about the culture, the more I have come to really respect the way of thinking that embodies legendary fashion designers and beauty brands that are founded in Japan.

Within the past 2 and a half year, I've made over 8 trips to Japan. Each one significantly impacted my personal style and beauty regimen. In the past year and a half, I have been working with a beauty brand that I've come to love and pretty much bathe my skin in every day. It was an honor to be invited by the Clé de Peau Beauté team to experience a #RadiantDay right at its home city, Tokyo.

Below is just a few quick snapshots of what the day entails.

Morning
A special visit to the Ginza Shiseido Store

That morning, before the store opened up to the public, I was invited to come and peruse the space. I was blown away by all of the incorporations of the company's signature 'Camellia' flower symbol throughout -- such as the floor, counters, and displays. This was only one of the obvious aspect of how detailed-oriented the brand carries its stores and products. I even learned that there are shimmers from Clé de Peau Beauté's illuminating powder incorporated into the tiles on the floor.

Created to be the center of beauty for the brand, it takes the name of SHISEIDO THE STORE. Aside from all of the work that went into creating a space that embodies all of Shiseido brand's core beliefs, you'll probably find it super cool, like I did, that even the music of the store is carefully orchestrated. If you get the chance to visit, pay attention to the soothing natural melodies that play (called gokion) while you're contemplating on a lipstick color. I promise it's pretty awesome once it's something you start to take into account for.

Above the first floor are three other ones; each with its own purpose in providing the utmost luxurious skincare experience. The 3rd floor is the brand's very own beauty spa (where I'll be pampered with a Clé de Peau Beauté facial later on). What's cool about this space is that there's even a hair and make-up salon along with a photo studio for you to use.

Just a quick 5 minute walk away, I came upon the Clé de Peau Beauté's own brand shop in the newly established Ginza Six. The store takes inspiration of a "brilliant cell" hence the honeycomb structure and sharp cuts that emanates radiance.

Fun fact, but 'Clé de Peau' actually translate to 'key to the skin' which I found incredibly fitting for the brand and the design to harmoniously showcase the fusion of beauty and science.


Lunch

Before we headed off to lunch, which happened to be close by to another Clé de Peau Beauté boutique, I obviously had to take a look. Unlike SHISEIDO THE STORE and the Clé de Peau Beauté counter at the Ginza Six, the Omotesando location was much brighter and a little less intimidating. I quickly learned that this was the whole purpose of the store -- to carry out a concept of a 'try it yourself' first.

Mid-day
Passing by the Shiseido Corporate Office to exclusively see past Clé De Peau Beauté 'La Creme' since 1982

Found myself in Ginza again right after lunch for a special treat at the Ginza Corporate office. For a brief hour, I was able to meet Clé de Peau Beauté Director of Laboratories, Mr. Ishimatsu who humbly shared all of his experiences in creating the iconic 'La Creme' with me. He even showed us personal photos from a trip to Northeastern Thailand, at a mulberry farm where they harvest the brand's very own silk cocoons to extract 'Platinum Gold Silk'.

As science and technology improve, so does the brand's 'La Creme' that was first introduced in 1982. Learning about the research behind the brand's skincare line truly helped me realize the luxury in being able to appreciate and use the products.

Afternoon

On to the part that I've waited all day for, the Clé de Peau Beauté facial treatment. Known to be one of the brand's most luxurious experience, it was no surprise to me that we were greeted with a type of water that was supposed to be good for your skin. After a 20 minute consultation, I was able to learn more about my personal skin type and it helped me identify issues that I wanted my treatment to focus on. I opted for a more moisturizing mask and asked to have my dark circles and red spots (which I learned was from a terrible blood circulation on my face) be the focus of the session...which was amazingly 120 minutes. I definitely fell asleep for a good 15 minute at a time somewhere in between each mask.

The second best part about the Spa? Well, for someone who doesn't have a vanity table of my own, I'm now rethinking that because I'm dreaming of the one that was available here for me to touch up after my facial. It was fully stocked with all possible Clé de Peau Beauté products available (yes, even the 'La Creme' in case you want to lather some more on your face). It was such a comfortable and cozy experience to have warm tea served to your little vanity table while getting ready again. If I didn't have a dinner to go to after this, I probably could have gone out as is because my skin was GLOWING.

Evening
Dinner at the Shiseido Parlour

While I could probably live this day forever, I couldn't have imagined spending the end of it any other way than having dinner with my boyfriend at the Shiseido Parlour Restaurant right next door. It's an elegant space that serves a mix of Western and Japanese dishes. I opted for scallops and my boyfriend steak - but we couldn't pass on the chef's famous 'omurice'.

All and all, I went to bed that night with dewy skin and the biggest smile on my face. It's honestly such a satisfying feeling to be able to spend so much time enriching yourself, taking care of yourself, and learning about such a legendary brand. I guess at the end of the day, I think that's what the brand's core beliefs are all about when they say 'Unlock Your Radiance."

Thank you Clé de Peau Beauté for allowing me to experience an incredible #RadiantDay. All thoughts and opinions are my own.

These are probably not the words you were expecting to read for someone’s internet birthday anecdote. And I think sharing your age’s number worth of lessons or whatever, is super lame.

I’m usually a headstrong person, but lately, I’ve just been so easily wavered by the not-so-nice thoughts floating in the back of my head. I’m no saint, by any means. I’ve been telling everyone that if there’s a heaven or hell, I’d probably find myself in the latter.

We all have our vices, and mine seems to be, grudge. It’s so goddamn hard for me to let things go, no matter how good I am at letting them be.

One of the biggest and last lessons I learned from my dad through his divorce with my mom is that you can’t expect to be able to change anyone, even for the better (because that better is only subjectively applicable to you). With that in mind, versus all of the fluffy things I used to really believe in pre-25, really confused the crap out of me. I still would like to believe that there are Naruto-s in the world.

It's so crazy that I no longer have an interest in fashion. I can barely describe what my style is anymore. And I don't even have an opinion on what looks good versus good enough to be seen in public. Meh.

Anyway, whenever I’m not feeling my best self, I always tend to do less and observe way more than I really need to. It’s the sociologist in me to diagnose, dissect, and find answers that can help me reason more so emotionally than logically. But, in the pinnacle age of the digital world, it all spirals back to social media, and internet celebrities that you just can’t help but compare yourself to. And that brings out a part of me that I really hate - because I can be so goddamn bitter.

I know, everyone says stuff like "no one is really sharing their struggles on their highlight reel" to make themselves feel better about the shit they're going through or justify their envy. But am I really the only person who hates thinking that way? It shouldn't comfort me any better knowing someone might be having it worse. That's just being an asshole.

These days, I'm living my best life. Or so it might seem. I am, I think. I can no longer tell what's great though because I feel like I've been way too spoiled. To the point where I'm even starting to get tired of myself for being so goddamn ungrateful for how little I actually do.

Does it count as a quart life crisis if you were already going through it before you turn 25?

Anyway, here's some things that went down this month that honestly, looking back, really put a big smile on my face despite how dark and irritated my thoughts internally might seem.

Where do I start. After countless trips to Japan and frantically freaking out 2x a year to meet at a completely new country with Shun to see each other for 5-10 days at a time. I can't believe we have the whole next year together, and in the same apartment too.

Although I have to say, moving into my very own apartment for the first time ever made me realized how expensive this whole process is (especially in Tokyo). Living at home for so long, I forgot that every little thing in a home costs money, a fridge, a towel, a sponge, a fork (or like 10 because we don't just have one), ect...

It's only been a full one month, but somehow it feels much longer.

"Yakatabune"
Earlier this year, I made my very first friend on my own in Tokyo. I told her I really wanted to attend one of Japan's summer festivals. Fast forward 5 months later, I'm in a yukata, eating sushi on a boat and watched some epic fireworks from the water in Odaiba.

That night we drank until 4am, and I could barely remember anything - but it was one of the best day I've had in awhile.

8/16 for as long as I can remember has always been filled surrounded by lots of people. It's weird to say but this year more than ever, it was nice to have it be a little quieter. Back home, mom would probably have dinner and a cake ready, and that's what Shun did. It was nice not to fuss about what to wear, where to go, who to see, and how can I combine groups of friends together to avoid getting fucked up too many times separately... haha. I don't know, is this a sign I'm getting old?

Retro vibes, milkshake, diner photography, diner editorial - FOREVERVANNY / 072018 / Home Sweet Home

Life seems to have gone full circle this month. As I was about to embark on a totally new life venture, I somehow found myself experiencing some of the things I’ve never done before from the different places that I considered, home, sweet home.

It's almost September and yet I've just recapped July. I've been doing a terrible job at keeping up with these posts monthly, but I'm giving myself time to internalize it all. Bear with me for now.

Despite being a hyphened American for the past 15 years or so of my life, I don’t think I’ve truly had a 4th of July that truly felt classic until this year. We did the whole firework she-bang at a quaint lodge upstate, with sparklers too. And it ended with a cozy family BBQ at Christina’s home.

The next day we drove back and even had breakfast at a diner in the middle of nowhere - so of course, we had to do the typical milkshake photo for that vintage American vibe.

Later on that week, I crossed off another pretty iconic American thing (or I guess New Yorker thing); picnic in Central Park. The girls and I haven’t been together in a while, so it was pretty nice to catch up and spend some outdoor times as I’m the least outdoorsy person in our group.

To end the day, we all went to get our aura reading - somehow mine was as green as could be and that accordingly signifies big changes ahead…

I used to stress myself out so much deciding whether or not I should bring my camera around with me for the sake of getting “content’ for whatsoever social obligations I might feel like I have; but it was only recently that I kind of started to get used to the idea that maybe some memories don’t actually need a physical snapshot. And, whenever I find myself with no photos to show, I'll be comforted by the idea that, if it was a good time, it WAS a really good time; if it was not, then I no longer have to look back and lie to myself that it was an okay time (because let’s be honest, I’ll never post a photo of me frowning/crying).

Vietnam was kind of like this… The good times, were great times. So good that I’m already thinking of the next time I’ll be back.

Of all the times that I've passed by HCM, I've never actually gotten the chance to explored much. On our way back from Can Tho, I actually asked our driver to stop by for a rest break while I went out to take a short walk with my two oldest cousins. We got caught in the rain and literally did know what to do so we ate Vietnamese McDonalds and went for bubble tea after. It was actually really nice to catch up with my little ones since I haven't seen them in 5 years.

Not going to lie, I always leave Vietnam with such overwhelming emotions that's just not from saying goodbye to my grandparents - but I don't know... In a way, it's like saying goodbye to a side of me that I don't really get to fully live when I'm anywhere else but Vietnam.

Just like that and I'm finally back in Tokyo. Something about being here feels really comfortable now, and I completely switch from country life to a city girl overnight. I guess I can now feel a little of how some people feel in New York - something about the energy in Tokyo breathes life into me. And I look forward to every chance I get to devour a meticulously plated set of sashimi. Really, I think I now know what I want for my last meal (if that ever comes up).

The next couple weeks will be mostly focused on moving into the new apartment. I really can't wait to finally have a small place, all to Shun and I.
