Meet me in Tokyo

If you are in Tokyo, I would love for you to meet me at Ropé mademoiselle in the Marunouchi Building this Saturday from 14:00-16:00. I will be there to celebrate my illustrated collaboration with the clothing brand Ropé!

This Weekend

Avocado smoothies, a visit to the Céline outlet store (only 45 minutes away from my parent’s house upstate, eeps) and David Hockney: A Bigger Picture on dvd for Saturday; Bridget Bardot’s Poule au Pot on a Sunday.
