New Beginnings + Let’s Create Together with Patreon!

Hi everybody!

I finally got to sit down and write down about what’s currently happening in my life.

If you’re following me on instagram / twitter, you would know that..

I’ve finally moved into my new apartment this month.

Maybe only God knows how much I’ve waited for this day happen. After 7 years of living here in Japan, dreaming that someday.. I would be able to afford the dream pad that I’ve been longing for.. here I am now.

It wasn’t easy to get myself from point zero to here. To get all the apartment things sorted out (lots of calls, thanks to Aki & my brother for the help), to save up for this (GIRRRRLLLLL!! it was cray haha), and to mentally prepare myself from moving out from my previous home.. oh my. What a crazy journey it was! And it was just a few months ago~!

2 years ago, I wrote this dream (again) on my hobonichi planner.

Someday, I will have my own (bachelorette) pad.

I actually wanted to become more independent since last year but because many things happened and I had to help my family back home (my father got cancer (results will be released in a few months!), I had to assist my family here for more emotional support, and so much more)… some things had to be taken aside for the meantime. But I did not forget that dream. Everyday, as I travel and commute to my workplace (either super far Saitama or Chiba), I would remind myself that “Just wait Kaila, hang in there. The right time will come.” Every single time I would go to JP bank to send half (sometimes more) of my salary / earnings for my Dad’s therapy / misc. expenses, I would tell myself.. “Things will get better, don’t give up! The universe will be more generous if you are generous too!“.

And the right time did come. When my bestfriend (Justin) and I were talking about his plans on moving back to Manila (this also made me very ;___; for many months huhu. He’s my BFF / best friends forver), we joked about me taking over his place. I don’t know if the Guy Up There planned this entire year for me (maybe He did plan & I really hustled) but it was just so amazing how everything finally went into place. It felt like all my sacrifices since last year are now in form of rewards! I moved into a fully-furnished apartment (spacious & just right for a content creator like me) and I just had to bring my old stuff here. I’m not super rich but now, I have enough money / capital / buffer for reinvestment / growing my current work. I’m growing slowly.. and no matter how slow it is, progress is progress.

If you want to see what it looks like as of now, I have an instagram highlight (@rainbowholic) filled with BTS videos of my moving in / fixing!

WRAPPLE Workshop Cafe + Travelling Hobonichi 2018 Meet-up ?

Hello everybody!

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).

(this was during my first stationery meet-up with Tokyo folks)

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

Cute Gift Wrapping Ideas + Stationery Girls Fair in Tokyo + VIDEOS!

Hi everybody!

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!
