Yesterday, I attended my first Travelling Hobonichi event hosted by my dear friend, Esther (@esthermolinart)! I met this crazy and super kind bunch of stationery lovin’ people back when Momo (@momolovespaper) invited me to join a stationery meet-up at Tokyu Hands Cafe.
It was my first time at a Wrapple store / branch and I was SO amazed by everything! Imagine a workshop cafe filled with stationery?! There’s a stationery cafe (Bunbougu Cafe) in Tokyo too but I love this space more. It’s accessible too because it’s just next to Tokyu Hands Shibuya. I asked the staff about the shop (couldn’t believe I just discovered it now lol) and she told me it was just pretty new (built 6 months ago).

BGM washi tapes just really make you want to travel around the world haha

Before I go to sleep and wake up early later (I set my alarm at 5:45am everyday lol why)… just gonna plug & share some of my recent video updates!
Can’t believe that my “12 Days of Kawaii Journaling & Crafting” is actually pushing through! It’s tiring but I really enjoy content creation work while I juggle it with my 2 jobs.
I’ll probably write a major life update blog entry soon but for now, I just want to concentrate on making these video ideas into reality! Hope you guys enjoy my videos~! Don’t forget to subscribe to Rainbowholic TV on youtube!

November was such a CRAZY month for me and I couldn’t just unload everything as I had a special event every weekend. But before I tell you guys about what happened these past few weeks, let me just share some pictures (preview yay) of a super special video coming SOON on my youtube channel!
If you love Japan and love traveling here, make it extra special through creative / kawaii journaling! I’m going to show you how you can setup your current journal so that it will be travel / Japan-ready by the time you start your adventure here, hehe! You can also do #throwback journaling like what I did before when I went to Hokkaido (and I did the journaling 1-2 years after lol).
Anyway, more on that later! Now, I want to share my overwhelming experience in preparation of my first ever 21KM run (that I had to finish in 3 hours!)
This year, I’ve been doing a lot of effort to get fit! There were of course relapses during this fitness journey but I know that I would always come back stronger and more determined! I guess one of my biggest motivations besides my personal health goals would be my partner-in-crime, Aki! Aki would always do some physical activity after his usual company work every week and that inspired me to make more time to go to the gym, do home workout, or run around the neighborhood. He would exercise at least 3 times a week (on his own.. because Tokyo boy, and I’m local girl from Saitama haha), and I would also do my own thing on my own when we can’t meet each other during weekdays (both busy people lol).
I actually shed off some pounds and became more lean after I really made more effort than before. Though I’ve been having an active lifestyle for 2 years by jogging / running & occasional gym visits, I only got to really achieve my ideal healthy body goals this year! Hopefully before this year ends, I can share the simple adjustments (HEALTHY eating habits!) I did to lose that 5% body fat. I was around 27% before and now, my percentage ranges from 22-23% (each body is different and I’m a bit short too so these numbers might be too much for others). If you want to get to know more about what this “body fat” means, click here. It’s not the actual weight that most people think! My ultimate goal is from 18-20%, which means that I have to have a lot of remaining fat to be converted into muscle. Aki’s body age is 18 (he’s 26) and that’s also my goal lololol. I’m also 26 and my body age is 21/22. I hope that through my fitness story, I will be able to inspire others to become more active and try running (goodbye social media for an hour!) We are all not growing any younger and our metabolism really drops over the years and I really believe that it’s one’s responsibility to take care of his / her own health at the best of his / her capabilities. I am making more conscious decisions now when eating because I don’t want to go back to my very unhealthy body when I had problems with gallstones and to my declining mental health brought by severe PMS (PMDD). Now, I feel much better and I could feel the 18 yr. old energy in me to radiate from within! ^^ This 2018, I hope we will all have a healthier body, spirit, and mind!
Hi everyone! おはようございます from Japan ~
Today’s morning blog update is all about youtube & blog updates.
A few days ago, I’ve finally launched the page and published the details / packages for the Tokyo Stationery Tour. If you’d like to hoard stationery with me as I show you around the city + journal together at a cute & cozy cafe in Tokyo, I highly recommend booking a tour! I’m not sure until when I will be offering this but while it’s still available and I have allocated time, book now! 🙂
Are you in Japan this autumn season? Then.. I hope to see you at Tokyo Design Festa Vol. 26 this Nov 11 & 12!
Abbey, Jean, and I will be sharing a booth together! It’s going to be so much fun ~
