Today is our birthday !

Today is Bloyst 1 year anniversary! Yes it's our birthday.

 OMG Bloyst is one year old today! I can hardly contain myself. Yes I have been partying all weekend and the party still continues today! I wanted to say a massive thank you to all the incredible people who have contributed or/and have supported Bloyst in its first crazy year. It hasn't been easy but it has been a worthwhile journey. I am looking forward to Bloyst's amazing future and its growing success globally. Once again thank you all. xxx

Style Confidential - Ena Kitamura of Retoys.net

Tokyo fashion week is in full swing at the moment, so it seems fitting to start this year's Style Confidential Series with the fabulous Ena Kitamura. Chief Editor of the Japanese Online Magazine Retoys and an amazing Photographer. Ena is fast becoming one of Japan’s rising fashion icons. Her eclectic perspective on style and the way she documents Japanese fashion is second to none. She does give an exciting insight to the world of Japanese fashion and its burst on the the fashion circuit. Ena has been busy at Tokyo fashion week, but I was able to catch up with her earlier this year to find out a little bit about her and have a look at her personal style.
