A Reflection || My 4 Year Anniversary in Los Angeles


Los Angeles is the city of dreamers.

Everyone wants to be here. Everyone wants to live here. Everyone wants to move here.

4 years ago today, that's exactly what I did. It's funny, though. Truth is, I didn't move out here to "make it in L.A". I'm a city girl from Tokyo and the size of L.A is nothing in comparison but Portland certainly wasn't cutting it. I just needed a change. And some sun.

The Perfect Day Trip Itinerary for Cape Cod


Thanks to one of my best friends getting married last Saturday, I had the opportunity to visit both Cape Cod and Boston for the first time! The wedding itself was in Cape Cod but I couldn't pass up adding a few days to explore Boston!

Minus the time spent at the beautiful wedding (congrats again, R & A!), I enjoyed approximately a day in Cape Cod and discovered a few places worthy of mention! Since my Boston experience will be chock full of photos and recommendations, I figured Cape Cod deserved individual love!

Featured Friends: Mara from Vacations With Mom


I've been loving having guests on my blog. It's probably one of the best decisions I've made for this blog alongside the Fly Away Friday linkup with Chloe. I love getting to know other travelers and becoming friends along the way while e-mailing back and forth.

Say hello to Mara from Vacations With Mom. The thing that stuck out the most was her blog name and theme. Mara blogs about her - well - vacations with her Mom and features other travelers that do the same. I love that! My parents and brother are my best friends so it makes me happy when I see families traveling together...is that weird? Ah, well.

More Things To Do & Good Food In Portland, Oregon


I was in Portland, Oregon for Labor Day weekend to celebrate a friend's gender reveal. But since that was only a few hours, I got to explore some new places in Portland that I thought I would share with you!

If you've been reading my blog for a while, you already know that I used to live there. A total of 4 years of my 20's was spent in Portland; 2 years right out of college and 2 years after Detroit. My best friend lives there and got to stay at her new place for most of the trip, so thanks Maya & Will!

If you're looking for things to do, places to eat or fun activities in Portland, obviously keep reading this post. In addition though, check out my first Portland post for another list of must-do things when in the City of Roses!
