The Latest & Greatest Online Delivery Services! アメリカで大人気の『オンラインスタイリングサービス』とは?!

In today's TV episode, I shared all about the latest Delivery Services in the states! I was especially interested in the "Online Styling Service" which focuses on the latest fashion styles and trends.

今回のテレビ放送では、進化し続けているアメリカの最新宅配サービスをご紹介しました!
その中で私は、アパレル業界の『オンラインスタイリングサービス』を試してみました✨

All you have to do is answer a survey where you can answer your clothing sizes, styles, and preferences in detail, and the professionalist stylist takes care of the rest! When the box of items arrive at your house, it includes a personalized note that tells you what pieces they chose for you and how you can style them. It'll allow you to explore various designs, brands, and looks you may not choose yourself but still suits your taste!

オンラインで答えたアンケートにより、
スタイリストが自分に合った服をコーディネートしてくれます。
スタイリストからのアドバイスが書かれたメモもあり、
「毎回同じ様なスタイリングになってしまう」と悩んでいる方には、新たな発見があるかも

What's so awesome about this service is that you can pick out the items you ended up loving to purchase and easily send back the rest. I was a bit afraid that the clothing weren't going to fit well since I sometimes struggle finding the right sizes for my body type in the US, but surprisingly, most of the items fit like a glove because I entered all the details in the survey!

自宅に届いた服の中から、自分が気に入ったものだけを購入出来ます!
体のサイズも全て入力しているので、自分の体にぴったりフィットしたものが届く事も嬉しいいです♪

There were items in the boxes that I personally wouldn't have picked out if I were shopping at the store, but when I actually put it on myself, I ended up loving it! You get to do all of this at the comfort of your own home, so you can take your time coordinating different pieces together that you may already have in your closet and then choose your absolute faves to keep. I think there's really no better way to discover new trends and styles especially if you're a really busy person or have trouble choosing new pieces of clothing to add to your wardrobe!

自分では普段絶対に選ばないデザイン&形の洋服が入っていたり...
でも、着てみると意外と気に入ってしまったものなど、
新しいことに挑戦するにはとても良いサービスだと思いました!

お店では、沢山の服を試着する事は大変ですが、
自宅で時間のある時にゆっくり試してみて、
気に入らないものは送り返すことができるサービス。
忙しいニューヨーカーにも大変好評の様です!

Trying this service out made me want to be more adventurous with my fashion picks. If you missed the TV episode, you can still check it out HERE! I hope you try these awesome online delivery services out yourself as well! :)

今回、新しいスタイルに挑戦できたことで、この夏はより一層ファッションを楽しみたい!と思えました✨

Adopting Lia・アダプトする事について

Today, I'd like to share about adopting a furry friend. My brother adopted a dog three years ago, so since then, I've been researching a lot about rescue groups and how I can help serve the community...

今回は、アダプトについてお話したいと思います。3年前に兄が犬をアダプトし、それからずっと
レスキュー団体について調べる事&ヘルプする事を始めました。

IMG_1489.JPG
..and it has been a year now since I adopted my doggie, Lia!

私が愛犬の「リア」をアダプトして、先日一年になりました!

FullSizeRender.jpg

Lia was found on the streets on LA near a dumpster, and after she was rescued, I had her flown over to NYC. Here is what she looked like (below) when she first came to me. It seemed as though she didn't want to live anymore because she was extremely thin and ill. She wouldn't eat, barely had the energy to walk, and was fearful of human beings. :(

リアは1年ほど前にロサンゼルスのゴミ捨てエリアでレスキューされ、NYに連れて来てもらった子です。
初めて会った時はとにかく背骨の出っ張りが分かるほど細くて食欲もなく、病気もあり、まともに歩く事もできず、とにかく人に怯えていました。

IMG_1861.PNGFor the first month or so, she would always step back whenever someone approached her. It was an automatic reaction she had which I believe came from being abused by someone (I could tell by her injured nose and expression). Therefore, I made sure to approach her very gently and slowly in a low position, letting her know that she would be okay being around me and that there was nothing to be scared of.

最初の1ヶ月ほどは、人が近づくと必ず逃げていました。鼻には叩かれた様な傷もあったので、きっと頻繁に人に叩かれたり、蹴られたりされた経験からの行動だと思いました。ゆっくり、静かにアプローチを続けて、「人が近くに来ても怖くないんだよ。」という事を何度も教え、少しづつ距離を縮めていきました。

IMG_1860.PNG

Lia always hid in the corner of a room, so I got her a little "home" so that she could have her own space for a while. I no longer need to use this today, but back then, it was very helpful because I could still see what she was doing from a distance (since it's see-through), and she could also see her surroundings while feeling comfortable. She didn't need to be worried of who or what may come into her private space, so it allowed her to rest well and eat more at her own pace.

このように彼女だけの落ち着けるスペースを作り、この中で少しづつご飯も食べられるようになりました。

She started opening up to me as the days went by, and although it took several months, she started to enjoy walks again! (In the very beginning, I had to wear clunky shoes to attract her attention and have her follow me.) She now runs along with my brother's doggie as well!

徐々に徐々に、本当に少しづつ心を開いてくれるようになり、半年後にやっとリア専用の部屋も要らなくなりました。

IMG_1485.JPGNow, she begs for food with twinkling eyes, runs with me at full force at the park, and sleeps in my arms at night. I truly could not be more thankful that she came into my life, and I hope that she feels the same. :) It is absolutely life-changing to see her grow (both mentally and physically!)... and I hope that you can rescue or help spread the word about adopting and the importance of caring for these innocent furry friends, too.

最初はほぼ歩かなかった子が、今ではしっぽを降って「外に連れて行って!」とおねだりまでしてくれます。毎日キラキラしたお目目で「おやつ欲しい!」を訴え、公園を全力で走りまわり、夜は私のベットの真ん中でスヤスヤと眠ってくれる、普通の犬に生まれ変わってくれました。
本当に幸せな気持ちでいっぱいです。

シェルターには、助けを待っている沢山の子たちがいます。
もし将来、犬&猫を飼う事を考えておられる方は、是非一度シェルターに足を運んで頂けると嬉しいです。一匹でも多くの子達に幸せが舞い降ります様に願っています✨

Summer is Here!

Happy June!I can't believe Summer is already here. Lately, I've been quite busy going back and forth to Japan and the states for my own social media work, and it's been amazing being able to explore various food, locations, and places to film. (I can't reveal what I visited Japan for yet, but it'll be released soon!) Here are a couple of delicate and delicious Japanese food photos for your pleasure. :D

6月、いよいよ夏ですね!最近は日本への出張が多くなり、様々な日本料理、珍しい撮影スポットなどに行く機会が増え、日本を満喫しています。今日は、日本での写真を少しシェアします♪

Thumbnail image for IMG_9724.JPGI unfortunately have very limited time during these business trips, but what makes every visit so awesome is definitely the food. I can take photos forever because of the beautiful presentation! (Although I ate some of the dishes from the course before snapping a photo...) Japan has various speciality restaurants, and this time I was able to visit a healthy tofu place where you could also see the Tokyo Tower.

ビジネストリップだとどうしても時間が限られてしまいますが、やっぱり日本食は外せません!
お豆腐がメインのヘルシーレストランで、外には東京タワーも見え、「和」の雰囲気を存分に楽しめる素敵なところでした。

ニューヨークもすっかり暑くなってきたので、夏ファッション!
また今月もビジネストリップが続きますが、温かくなりトラベルが楽しい季節になりました。^_^
又、様々な場所の写真をアップしたいと思います。

I hope you all have a wonderful early Summer season!

Beautiful Japan

Hi, everyone! 2017 has already been a year full of constant traveling for me for work which has been keeping me quite busy, but I thought I'd share some of my new favorite spots I discovered in Japan in this post!

2017年に入ってから仕事で様々な場所へトラベルしているのですが、
今回は日本に行った時のお気に入りショットをいくつかシェアしたいと思います★


A place called "Kamakura" in Japan is about 40 minutes from Tokyo by train, but it was my first time ever going there. The photo above is the Meigetsu-in temple in Kita-Kamakura, and I was appalled by the beauty of this place. The peak-through window to the garden has a different "face" for each season because you can see the foliage in the Fall, bright greens and ajisai flowers in the Summer, snow in the Winter, and sakura in the Spring! I recommend visiting early in the morning because there won't be as many people and you'll get to enjoy the calm and quiet environment.

日本にステイしている間に行った場所の一つが...「鎌倉」!
以前から良いところだと聞いてはいましたが、実際に行ったのは今回が初めて★
北鎌倉「明月院」の窓から覗く借景はとても美しく、幻想的でした。


Hokokuji was one of the most relaxing and refreshing places I've ever been to. It was a serene area full of bamboo trees reaching towards the sky that never seemed to end. I've seen this place numerous times in photos and have always wanted to go, so being there in person (especially when the weather and temperature was great!) was such a surreal experience. You can enjoy authentic matcha and wagashi (Japanese confectionery) here as well, so it's a perfect place to come with friends, family, or your significant other. I was told that this place is terrific for photos and it's known also known to be a popular "healing spot." To be honest, I did get a bit emotional inside because it was so beautiful and brought back many wonderful memories. :) I literally have hundreds of photos I took in Kita-Kamakura and Kamakura, but here are a few more!

写真で何度も見たことがあった報国寺へ!
どこまでも高く伸びる竹、鶯が啼く声、そして美味しい抹茶と和菓子。
NYのマンハッタンとは正反対な(笑)、とても落ち着く、癒しの場所でした♪

日本は季節によって、全く違う風景を楽しむことができます★
これからも日本の色々な場所へ足を運び、新たな日本を発見し発信していきたいです。
I hope you enjoyed the photos, and thank you for reading! :)

March Events in NY & LA!

Times fliesーMarch is here! New York City has gotten a lot warmer, and I'm so glad the freezing days of snow are (hopefully) finally over. In today's TV episode, I'll be sharing with you various events held in New York City and LA in March. Some of them are completely new while some of them may be familiar to you. I don't want to spoil everything, so I will share two of my faves here. :)

あっという間に、もう3月!
ニューヨークはだいぶ温かくなり、ようやく凍りつくような寒い日々が終わりました(多分)。

IMG_5443.JPG

今回のテレビ放送では、3月に行われるニューヨークとロサンゼルスのイベントをご紹介しました!

毎年行われているものから今年初めて行われるイベントまで、様々です♬
このブログでは、今回のオンエアより私が個人的に気になった
ニューヨークとLAのイベントを1つずつご紹介します!


Screen Shot 2017-02-28 at 1.29.16 PM.png

One of them is called a "Cat Camp" which is going to be held for the first time in New York City! Here, you'll get to listen to guest speakers and panelists about how to take care of adopted cats as well as tips on how to create a comfortable and happy home for these furry friends. There will also be a place for you to interact and play with the cats that are available for adoption, so it will be a wonderful way to meet a new family member.<3

一つは「キャット・キャンプ」という、ニューヨークで初めて開催される猫のイベントです。
猫に詳しいスピーカーやパネリストを招いて捨て猫の飼い方、
そして猫に優しい部屋作りなどといったコツを色々学ぶことができます。
又、会場では里親を募集している猫とのふれあいスペースもあるので
新しい家族に出会える素敵なチャンスです♪

Another one I would totally attend if I lived still lived in LA would be "Art Night Pasedena." You can begin your own journey at any of the 18 participating cultural institutions, and what's awesome is that there are free shuttles that will directly take you there. :D You can celebrate and welcome Spring in an outdoor garden-like setting, and at night, you'll be able to enjoy fabric and light installations! Others include anime art, Far Eastern music, and eclectic treats that would be wonderful to experience with friends and family!

ロサンゼルス在住の方におすすめなのは、
日が起きてから行われる"Art Night Pasedena"というアートイベント。

パサデナにある18の文化機関が参加し、夜ならではの
光のインスタレーションやライブパフォーマンスが開催されます。

アウトドアガーデンのようなセットもあるそうなので、春を迎える雰囲気にぴったり♪
家族や友達と共に、フリーシャトルに乗って様々なエンターテインメントを楽しむことができます!

Feel free to check out the episode HERE if you missed the TV airing,
and I hope you'll have a wonderful beginning of Spring!


3月は他にも春を感じられるイベントがニューヨークとロサンゼルスでは沢山行われます!
