Hi I’m Arika! I’m a Japanese-American Los Angeles Native! I love all things Health + Wellness, especially Yoga and Pilates and making Acai Bowls! I am also a huge makeup fanatic and my style is super feminine! I have a lifestyle YouTube channel + instagram, but my blog has always been what ignited my passion of sharing stories. I started this journey 12 years ago, and I then received my Master’s Degree in Journalism at the University of Southern California to pursue my love of writing. I am very close to my family and have had amazing relationships that I’ve kept private online. But here, I will be sharing all my intimate stories that happen beneath the 7-step skincare routine! Love you all and thank you for stopping by!
