Rainbowholic Studio (So Far) + Youtube Updates

Hi guys!

After a long crazy week, I am finally having some me-time here at my place. It feels so good to blog again and just type away all these thoughts in my head! breathes in and out

As mentioned in my instagram posts earlier this month (and also blogged about it previously haha), I’ve finally gotten myself a studio / office.

I never expected that this day would come so soon. I knew that it would come true, but maybe not this year..? Haha. And yes, even if I’m like the most optimistic person out there, I still have those moments when I doubt my capabilities and all… tryin’ to be realistic. I hope that everything gets settled soon as it’s quite harder than I thought to set things up especially during this very cold winter season. I still don’t have internet at my studio and I hope to get one soon as it has been extra challenging for me to not edit & upload… wew.

Moving on…

To share some of my progress, here’s a messy desk photo! I’ve been filming some BTS during the entire setting up phase and I can’t wait to share them on my youtube! : )

Watch: First Rainbowholic Studio Vlog ♡ Empty Japanese Apartment Tour (アパートツアー)

Patreon-exclusive post: my first day reaction!

I reused my old stuff from my old apartment. My brother and Aki’s parents also donated some furniture / equipment for the studio. Aki was able to score this really good “extendable” dining table + chairs set from some app here in Japan. We only paid a few thousand yen for it!

My first breakfast at the studio during my first “work day” there. ;_;

#RainbowholicStudio: Not A Dream Anymore.

Hi all,

Sorry for the lack of updates during the second half of the year. phew

I had to give my maximum effort to make this goal a reality before 2018 ends.

Rainbowholic Studio is no longer a dream but a real space where I can freely create content, hold workshops / meet-ups, and fulfill orders for rainbowholic-shop.com.

I used to do everything in this small Japanese apartment… ;_; I was so inspired to work extra hard so that I can finally spend a happier self-care time here in my apato (apartment) without seeing “work” everywhere (packing supplies / boxes), lol.

It wasn’t easy and it was such an “uncomfortable” journey for me to pursue as I juggle many jobs ( teacher / entrepreneur / stationery store / custom kawaii tokyo tour guide ) but I’m so glad everything has fallen into place. ;_;

I had to set aside a good amount of money every month to be able to afford the “heavy” first month of payments. My savings made it just in time, lol!

More feelings here.

If you haven’t watched my #ThankYouPatrons / patreon journey video, please do! ^^

(Note lol: Couch / other displays not mine. This was when we were checking apartment options (it took a month!!)

Cardcaptor Sakura Exhibition: The Enchanted Museum! 🌸

Hi all!

Last Tuesday, I went to Roppongi Hills in Tokyo for the Cardcaptor Sakura Exhibition with my childhood bestfriend Aya (from Manila)! It was a super heart-warming experience for me and Aya because we used to watch Cardcaptor Sakura during our adolescent years (lol). Imagine being in the same city with your childhood best friend & visiting a special exhibition that is extremely close to both of your hearts? It was such a great memory that I would love to reminisce & reminisce again! :”)

All the feels!

Crazy October + Stationery Meet-up in Saitama + Kawaii Harajuku Tour!

Hi everybody!

How have you been guys? Hope you’re all having a great time wherever you are. Can you believe it’s already November?? I am so shocked, hahaha!

Left: When I dress up for an event

Right: Love collecting stamps!

Preview photos of the Kawaii Harajuku Tour (more photos below!)

October was such a busy yet very fulfilling month for me.

I had a spontaneous trip to Fukushima Prefecture (which I have yet to blog about), had a kawaii Harajuku tour for a client, now connected with an agency, started looking for a potential #rainbowholicstudio place, hosted a stationery / journaling meet-up (& had a blast!), broke a rainbowholic-shop.com record, continued with English teaching gigs every week, packed & shipped orders, achieved my monthly patreon goals, and so much more.

Thankfully, I am still getting by even with all the amount of workload. I already reached my limit that’s why I’ve decided to take another instagram break + set tier limits for my patreon… which felt like a huge relief after implementing these changes, haha. Implementing lol. I love interacting more on youtube / patreon so I will focus my energy on these platforms instead. This November might be hella crazier and I need to prepare myself for it. Looking forward to all my scheduled self-care days y’all, lol.

Anyway, enough of paragraphs, here are some photos taken recently! 🙂
