One of the best times of my life has got to be my trip to Tokyo, Japan last November. I was invited by the Beauty Bound Asia team (Google) to attend the finals of the competition as a coach/judge! I literally cried when I found out. I didn't expect it at all. I've been meaning to go to Japan and I totally did not expect that it would happen this year. Here'a a recap of what happened during my trip, guys + bonus photos I have not uploaded on social media! Enjoy!
