I started a new job last December and its going pretty decently. The only thing is... is that my new hours totally screws with my time for hanging with people and coordinating get togethers!
While people are eating breakfast and commuting... I am usually asleep. Just my luck, right?
One of the good things is that I don't have to deal with a ton of people on my way to and from work usually, so my commute is generally peaceful. I know I will miss it when I work during normal business hours! Rush hour....


Besides that, I had another Artsy Maid Cafe Meeting!

My Look:

I wore an old pair of leatherette knee high boots I had in my closet. The weather wasn't too bad... but then again, I didn't have to wait on public transportation this time around!

Me and the Girlz... And Simon... LOL
I felt pretty excited with this meeting! Plus it was a lot of fun too. Can't wait for the Cafe to roll around though!

I also have been editing and stuff like crazy. @___@
Time to clone myself like forealz cuz this sitting behind a computer screen for hours tweaking things is a pain in the booty cheeks.

Peace out Chocopies

Northern Illinois Jfashion Meet Up

I was invited to come out to Saturday's event that was hosted by Stellarkei from the Northern Illinois Jfashion Club at Mitsuwa and also Round 1 that recently opened up in Bloomingdale.

Japanese fashion and alternative fashion

We chatted and conversed a bit more as we ate snacks and shared stories at our table. One of the ladies noticed I was knitting after I ate my lunch... something people who are into gyaru fashion aren't necessarily known for!

After eating, we got ready for photo ops to capture our outfits that we wore to the meet up.

Japanese fashion and alternative fashion

Dapperest fellas

After magazines were bought, lunch eaten, and pictures taken, we headed to the recently opened Round 1 in Bloomingdale to take purikura!
I was so excited to see these beautiful machines, I almost cried in excitement! Though it is not that close to Mitsuwa or Gameworks, or even Chinatown for that matter, these machines were a Godsend and have been long awaited for YEARS for Chicagoans!


"What is this contraption?"

They had matching Sailor Moon pendants!

When we had our fill of playing arcade games, trying to win cute plushies, and taking purikura, the rest of the group toured and shopped at various stores in the mall.

Despite the cold weather, it was an enjoyable day out meeting with other (Japanese fashion) and alternative fashion enthusiasts!

Happy New Year 2015

This New Year Eve was celebrated at Murasaki Lounge in Downtown Chicago. The ladies tried various mixed drinks and sweet sake. I of course had my usual Japanese beer, Sapporo! The atmosphere at Muraski was lovely and an awesome choice to ring in the New Year.

The most special thing was that Shidoni was proposed to! It brought tears to my eyes as she looked puzzled as a group of her boyfriend's friends came to the bar, and then as he got on one knee.

AWWW! NYE engaged

Bathroom selfiesss

We stayed til the lounge closed, talking with each other and also clownin with a group of people and gettin in that Japanese Language practice too! After the bar, we headed to complete our shenanigans at Sandra's, Allie's and Sidoni's hotel for our own New Year Hotel Party! We danced para para, sipped sweet wine, chatted, spilled flamin hots, listened to music, and had pizza gifted to us cuz we were just too damn cute and awesome. But, I do question the choice of pineapple and bacon pizza though....Just a little bit. ;p

"let it goooo" Saw Ari too! Her make was fab!

Squad! fly as fuck
