Visiting The Getty Museum, Galleria, and Gardens | A Week in California

A Day at the Getty For the past four years, I have made the trek out to the beautiful and sunny state of California! The main purpose of my trip is to attend Anime Expo, but I usually like to stretch out my stay and fit in a bit of sight seeing here and there.

GenBeauty Toronto 2016 | Event Recap + Creator Party

Ripley’s Aquarium Toronto | Toronto Travel Guide

Ripley’s Aquarium in Toronto A continuation of my adventure downtown with Redbubble… (psst, there’s a giveaway too! Check it out!) The Ripley’s Aquarium opened in 2013, right next to the CN Tower! It’s a large aquarium that features a very streamlined path – you make your way through tanks featuring fishes from freshwater and saltwater lakes, to the shark tunnels, to tropical fish, the rays, the jellies, and a behind the scenes of the water filtration systems. It’s a beautiful and relaxing environment, great for destressing (unless you’re afraid of water, haha!)

Uncle Tetsu’s Angel Cafe; Toronto’s First Maid Cafe!

Uncle Tetsu’s Angel Cafe… Tucked away in the heart of the Toronto is a huge Otaku secret. In their efforts to expand and introduce Toronto to Japanese food culture, the famous Uncle Tetsu’s Cheesecake cafe has opened up a maid cafe. Maid cafes are a prominent and reoccuring theme in Japanese anime and otaku culture, and can famously be found in areas of Tokyo such as Akihabara. Maid cafes combine elements of anime, and cosplay culture – it is often a small, brightly lit, and pastel coloured cafe. Customers are greeted with a hearty “Irasshaimase!” or welcome!
