Oh hello, June, where did you come from?  Seriously how is it June already? I'm going to try and make the most of summer this year - despite everything else being rubbish. I'm going to enjoy myself and have fun in the sun. Sound like a good plan, doesn't it? ⠀

Oh hello, June, where did...

I must admit that I did get bored with balcony/mirror outfit pictures and wanted a more nature/organic photos backdrop. Well now summer is right around the corner, and the sun is indeed shining, and with news that lockdown resections are now easing, I now thought it was the perfect opportunity to go out into the wood and show you this floral Zara dress.⠀
I brought this dress at the very beginning of this year and was keen to show you guys this as I think it a lovely summer dress to wear, plus, I also thought it would go nicely with my red hat.⠀
For someone who has been cooped up, I must admit that it was nice to go into my local woodland and to walk around for an afternoon. I think it was also lovely for Richard, my husband, to pick up his camera again and to take some photos. The whole pandemic has put a pause on his professional photographer profession, and he hasn’t needed to use his camera much.⠀
It was lovely to put on a dress and to make myself look a little presentable. It got me out of my loungewear for an afternoon. The experience made me feel a little more like myself, and it put me in a good mood. As much as I like comfy loungewear, I’m still someone who wants to dress up.⠀
I’m hoping I can go out more this summer, of course still observing the social distancing rule, and doing more outdoor outfit photos. I’m also hoping this summer to wear more of my summer outfit and to feel more like myself.⠀

Usually, when I do an outfit post or picture, I like to dress up and show you some pretty dress. But this time I thought I would show you a few of my casual wear and what I wear on a day to day basis. I must admit, as much as I love to dress up, I wouldn't exactly go to Tesco in them. So on a day to day basis, I'm usually in jeans and a top. ⠀

If I were to describe my style, it would be summed up in two words: quirky and fun. I'm sure you realise by now I don't like boring black fashion – I do fun, bright, colourful style. Case in point is this Collectif watermelon dress. You can't get more quirky and fun fashion than this, can you?⠀
I like my clothes to reflect a lot of my personality, eternally youthful while also quirky and fun. Yup, that pretty much summed up me. The saying, you are who you are by the clothes you wear, really does hold up with me.⠀
I'm still that little girl who had a dressing up box as a child and would play dress-up; now I just have a wardrobe filled with more clothes than I could ever need as my dressing up box. I still like to have fun with my clothes, and I haven't lost that childhood wonder about clothes. And I don't think I ever will.⠀
Overall, what I'm saying is that this Collectif watermelon dress reflects who I am as a person and also my style. I also believe it represents how fashion shouldn't be all serious; it should be fun and should put a smile on a person's face.⠀

Hyper Japan 2019

Posted on

Now if you have been following this blog for a while, you will know that I love anything to do Asia/Far East – the eastern side of the world. My heart belongs to that part of the world and my absolute dream to travel all across it. From Hong Kong, Singapore, Thailand, Sri Lanka and of course, Japan; I want to see it all.

But airfare cost a bomb, and I have more chance of going to the moon then visiting all the countries that are permanently on my bucket list.

So to get my Asian fix and to indulge in all thing Japanese I went to Hyper Japan 2019. A festival based in Olympia London celebrating all things Japanese.

I have gone to this in previous years and have covered it on here. Here are links to all my previous Hyper Japan posts.

Hyper Japan 2014 | Hyper Japan 2015 | Hyper Japan 2016 | Hyper Japan 2017

You will notice that 2018 is missing – yeah I couldn’t go last year as I already had plans on the weekend it was on. But I made up for it by going to Hyper Japan 2019.

If you love all thing Kawaii (cute in Japanese) and love all things Japanese as much as me – then this is the place to be. It has everything you could ever want or need to have full Japanese experiences.

You can dress up as your favourite Anime character or perhaps try on a kimono. If you fancy trying out Japanese dishes, then there a whole area designed for Japanese foods.  There is also a Japanese game area where you can play exclusive Japanese games that isn’t available over here yet.

After 2017 disaster where they hosted the festival at the Tobacco Docks which I found to be a nightmare as it made the whole event so unorganized, I was pleased they brought it back to Olympia and to central London.

Be warned if you are going next year; then you will need to queue before going in. When I visited, I queued for an hour and a half. Also another warning, it does get busy around the popular area. So be prepared that you might not get to see or do everything as soon as you get in.

This year I felt the festival was a little smaller than previous years as there was a lot of empty spaces within the hall. I also thought they should have made the stage a lot bigger and to make it more of a feature within the festival. The stage was sort of in the back, and it was a lot smaller than previous years. The way it was laid out certain stands made it feel more like a jumble sale than a place to celebrate all things Japanese.

That was my only criticism for Hyper Japan 2019 was that they should have used the space better and not makes certain popular stands so cramp as it was difficult to see everything.

While I was there, I looked at all the pretty items on sale, brought a few Japanese sweeties to try out (which I will be reviewing on here next week!) and sat down to watch a Japanese singer performed. On the day I visited it was hot – too hot for my liking and there was no air conditioning so I didn’t spend too long while there (especially as I have already queued for an hour and a half) or I might melt down from the heat. But it was enough to see everything and to get full Japanese experiences.

I probably will go next year as it still a fun event and like I said before, my heart belongs to all things far east. If you are in London around July and want to try out all things Japanese, then this festival is for you.
