My new neighbourhood Shimokitazawa is magical, I can see I am going to like it here. Lots of little alley-ways, cafes and niknak shops to keep me amused! Today I found a little supermarket close to my apartment, I picked up a few essentials - bread, milk and noodles! (oh and their supply of sake is rather extensive...noted!)... There is so much inspiration everywhere I look, it's definitely feeding my creative moster within (the one that deprives me of sleep when I can't stop creating art at 2am...)
The quest for today was to buy a towel. Bringing a towel with me was the last thing on my list when I moved here, but I soon realised it's quite an important thing to have when moving into a new apartment... I can do without a lot of things but a shower aint one! Mission accomplished: I found a gorgeous little shop selling assorted bath products and picked up a cute little towel and hand towel for around $10 total, I do love a bargain! They are super cute!
Then I continued wandering... staring into shop windows.... smelling the air... took some snaps of textured walls and walked toward the sunlight. Tomorrow it's off to Shibuya to buy a mirror. And I mean that in the least vain way possible.... but a girl needs a mirror in her room, to prevent such mishaps as leaving the house with a booger-nose or hitched-in-the-undies skirt fiasco. Here are some snaps from today's outing... enjoy sweet folk! xx
Ps - Here's a snap of a bunch of rad art I've been collecting to adorn my new apartment walls! Alongside my favourite little zine by hello sandwich... (When I was packing to move here, I checked I had my hello sandwich guide before I checked for my passport...seriously.)
