Miles to Style

Psst. There is a new blog in town :: Miles to Style. My friend slash lovely client Christine from LAMA has launched a blog about fashion and dog!

Christine and her adorable dog, Miles (I’ve met him when I first met Christine, he was in his bag, didn’t say anything throughout our meeting at a café. I remember being so impressed by him. What a good boy!) will show you how to coordinate “the look” together both you and your dog and I’m sure more fun posts are coming soon… isn’t it so fun and cute?!

I remember telling Christine when we first got Maia, she was just as excited as I was and she sent me TONS of links for cute dog bags, clothes and collars, I had no idea there were so many fashionable dog related things out there until I had a dog! And yes, she hooked me into all that right away :)

I was so very happy to be a little help putting together the design that she envisioned, too — still in progress, more to come!

Congratulations, Christine (and Miles), everything looks fabulous!! :) xo Hijiri

LAMA Halloween Newsletter

I always have so much fun designing anything for LAMA since the day one. Their newsletter is one of my fun work I get to do and this month, it is Halloween themed… but very elegant and cool, fun, and edgy LAMA way!

They are introducing a new line of gorgeous jewelry, I was in love with them right away, and I thought instead of making the newsletter looking more spooky or Halloween-like, I just turned the llama pattern (usually in blue) and everything black — let the picture talk itself.

I love how it came out :) Maybe you can see the LAMA blog for some discount code…


Halloween is tomorrow! aww I am so not ready… it’s been crazy busy… but I will pull out something and have fun for sure!

Halloween at LAMA

I get to design everything for LAMA, it’s been so fun! I get to design their online newsletter every month and this month, it’s hallowen themed and I just had to share it here.

Each image is linked to the particular product so you can find out what it is by clicking it. (this is a screenshot so it won’t work, unfortunately…)

You can join LAMA mailing list anywhere on the website to receive one – she sometimes sends out discount code, too!


I redesigned a blog for LAMA by using word press template and customized it for LAMA. I think it looks clean and simple, consistent with the store site so I’m happy how it came out. Christine is going to be posting a lot of cool stuff and it is already bookmarked for my daily read!

I’m doing a few more blog designs now and I am forced to learn PHP and CSS… it is interesting how everything works and I want to be fluent… someday…
