Happy Holidays!

As 2012 comes to an end, it's time to reflect on what has been an amazing (and somewhat surreal) year for us. With time spent living in Taipei, Tokyo and Seoul, I have so many great memories of our time in each city. From spending a stinkin' hot summer riding our bikes around the streets of Tokyo, to attending our very first Seoul Fashion Week in South Korea, to finally trying Din Tai Fung in Taipei (I can't believe it took 5 trips before I did this!), to spending our first Christmas in Tokyo (and my first Christmas in Winter), plus so much more... it has truly been a year to remember. I've met some amazing people along the way who have become friends, eaten some amazing food and taken some street style photographs that I really really do love. So, here's a look back at 2012 with 20 of my favorite photos from the year. Happy holidays and wishing you all the best for 2013!

The Week On Instagram @StyleSophomore...

I spent some time up in Yoyogi Park this week doing a photo shoot for a Singapore-based jewelry label. It's so pretty in the park during the winter (but also very very cold) and I can't even imagine how beautiful it would be during the Autumn and Spring seasons. Here are some shots I took my iPhone and shared through Instagram...

Keiko, Tokyo

I'm so happy to share a Tokyo street style lookbook that I shot for Russian fashion magazine Look At Me. It features some of the stylish people I've met and shot in Tokyo over the past week or so. You can see the photos, portraits and close up detail shots here. Have a great weekend everyone!

The Week On Instagram @StyleSophomore...

I'm quite enjoying the sunny winter days in Tokyo and I couldn't help but capture the last of the leaves hanging in there and catching the afternoon sun up in Aoyama. In a few days, the trees will be almost completely bare. Such a pretty sight while it lasts! Some of my favorites from the week just gone...

1), 2) & 3) Winter leaves and afternoon sunshine in Aoyama, Tokyo
4) One of my stickers on a post outside A.P.C in Harajuku
5) Pretty flowers and frosted plants outside the flower shop in Harajuku
6) Fresh produce at the weekend farmers market in Aoyama
7) The steep-ish stairs up to our house
8) At home with my cozy American Eagle beanie
9) My shadow out and about looking for people to shoot. I've been walking around with my camera out (instead of in a bag) and this shows just how big it is!
10) Sometimes I walk around but sometimes I also just like to find a sunny warm spot to stand and people-watch.

The Week On Instagram @StyleSophomore...

Just a handful of pics from my Instagram this last week. We moved from Taipei to Tokyo and I've finally got the cold weather I've been longing for! Winter is here and I just had to go out tonight and buy myself lots of Heat-tech gear from Uniqlo!

1) Winter leaves in Omotesando, Tokyo, 2) James photographing in Aoyama, 3) Me being me at a dinner place in Shibuya. I'm loving being able to wear knitted hats again!, 4) So many choices for dinner!

Some shots at home while James was playing around with lights and stuff!

I finally tried Din Tai Fung in Taipei! Went to the Zhongxiao Dunhua branch with Litta and as usual ordered way too much but still finished off every last bit of it! I highly recommend it to those who haven't tried it yet, it's just as good as people say it is!

1) Dinner at a Japanese Izakaya style restaurant, 2) Pre-dinner Apple Martini at T.G.I Fridays, 3) Ice cream, cotton candy & espresso at Cafe Alley, 4) Oreo smoothie, Americano at Cafe Alley.

Me being test shot for James before another fashion shoot. 

Shooting in action! At the Shih Chien University library basement doing a shoot, this time with a cool Taiwanese designer eve_y_chen.  

I realized while looking through my Instagram that the majority of photos I post are food or drink-related! So if you like food photos or if you just live for food like I do, then follow me on Instagram @StyleSophomore. Hope you've all had a great Sunday!
