Kawaii Photospam + #Createspaces Feature + Other Life Updates

Hi everyone!

It feels like I haven’t blogged for a very long time. *_* Recently, offline life has been sooooo busy! Been working on some OurKawaii.Tokyo side projects, managing Japan Lover Me Store (/side note/ I’M SO HAPPY that Japanese Sukajan / Souvenir Jackets are getting known more & more..!), and a lot more! Can’t spill everything yet but ahhh, everything is just so exciting! *_*

Took sooo many photos for the past weeks and I’ve got 10,000+ photos already in my Camera Roll folder. ;_; HELP

Anyway, since I missed sharing / spamming you folks with my kawaii finds…. here is a kawaii post~!

Rainbowholic Interview by SuperCuteKawaii.com

Hello all!

I think I’ve forgotten to blog or post about this but my interview by Super Cute Kawaii is already out! ;_;

I remember restarting my “kawaii lifestyle blog” years ago and stumbling upon SCK (I was googling for “kawaii blogs”) and I never thought that this day would happen. Wow! :O

I really put my heart into answering all the questions and I hope that you guys could spare some time to read my passion over cute culture. ^_^

10 Random Things That Happened Recently / Currently On My Mind

  1. I’ve become sooo busy handling orders and taking photos for Japan Lover Me Store! I’m so happy that our year-long effort in building our e-commerce website is finally kicking off!
  2. Watching videos about entrepreneurship and success stories has been my favorite “break time” since last week. I don’t know why I’ve gotten so inspired. I’m already 25 and I really hope I will have enough time to build my own “empire” (lol, what a big dreamer) before I turn 30! Call me ambitious.. but this is really just me, haha.
  3. I miss going to our nearby onsen, huhu. TIME WHERE U ;_;
  4. I can’t wait for all the trips I will be having this Spring / Summer! So much excitement!
  5. On the other hand, I think I need to minimize my weekend outings. I have to miss out in order to save up. I’m not sure if this is ~*maturity*~ but I am aiming to incur expenses only if these are investments.
  6. Omg, why do I sound like I’m so workaholic?? Or.. am I? I’m in denial??
  7. KAWAII MARKET 2016. Coming soon.
  8. OurKawaii.Tokyo Book Deadlinesssss omg
  9. I really want to start watching Cheese in the Trap Korean drama soon. Again, TIME WHERE U??
  10. I’m excited to run again tomorrow morning! (Is this me?!)

My brain is so scattered lol.

Have a great week, friends!

Little Miss Paintbrush’s Kawaii Website (www.hello.chi-chi.me)

おはよう (Good Morning) from Japan!

I just want to announce that my dear friend / twinnie ChiChi has finally launched her Little Miss Paintbrush Website!!!

chichi romero lmp

www.hello.chi-chi.me

chichi romero meet the artist

Read ChiChi’s inspirational story here.


I’ve witnessed how ChiChi worked hard on this dream website of hers and I couldn’t be more prouder to share this with you! If you are an artist or you want to pursue art someday, let her story inspire you.

It still amazes me how she is the breadwinner of her entire family. In the Philippines, it’s very challenging to be an artist while you provide for the family. For me, she is really one of the most inspiring people out there. Not only that she is humble to the core, but because she is truly a genuine person. She makes art to spread positivity and to make others smile! (To be “chichified” is both an honor and responsibility.. just kidding lol. Corny joke attempt hahahahaha)

When she was younger, she got a scholarship program under Assumption Development Foundation (which we would like to get as a beneficiary for the Kawaii Market 2016 we are planning *crosses fingers*) and they really helped her finance her education. Imagine how you can change many people’s lives just by helping out a child who is overflowing with so much potential and has the heart to give back?

I remember the time when ChiChi’s pen tablet got broken and we had some deadlines for Japan Lover Me (we work together in the same company) and even with just a mouse, she was able to finish the illustration requested. Now, that’s pure talent! I’m seriously blown away by her professionalism + skills. And I’m super proud to call her as my friend.

I know that someday, ChiChi’s art will grace more books, magazines, publications, exhibits, lifestyle & fashion goods, and so much. I really believe that this big dream of hers will come true someday. : )

I will be here as a friend to give my all-out support as she continues to unlock more dreams while she proves to the world that you can be who you want to be, as long as you put your soul and heart into it.

Much love,

カイラ

(I’m really a cheesy friend hahahaha)
