Here is this week’s update & photo dump! Enjoy the photos!
Last night, we’ve finally released our first travel guide e-book project under the Our Kawaii Tokyo brand! It’s a creative guide / compilation of our favorite hangout places in Harajuku, Shibuya & Shinjuku. If you love the things that I visit or hoard (coughs stationery coughs), you will also enjoy exploring around Tokyo with this guide.
Ashley, Allie and I really worked hard on this one (2 years in the making or so, lol #nevergiveup). Allie did the entire layout & everything’s wonderfully done!
We had to change many pages along the way because some shops closed down & we wanted to give the reader a more user-friendly experience (putting ourselves in her/his shoes) so. We hope that you will also enjoy browsing our mini guide. We wish to create more themed travel guides in the future. ^^
The price right now for June 2017 is 1200 JPY. You can purchase it from Rainbowholic Shop. ^^
Illustrations / patterns by Allie. Photos by everybody 🙂
Before I spam you guys with my Korea trip blog posts, here are some videos for Rainbowholic TV I’ve created during my mini blog hiatus.
I can’t believe it’s been over a year since I relaunched my youtube with journaling process videos! I remember how difficult it was before because I was just trying things out while experimenting different video editing / shooting styles. This trip to Chichibu for the kawaii poppy flowers was my first ever Hobonichi With Me video! I didn’t even consider shooting under natural light, lol.
A hundred videos later under the Hobonichi With Me category (video count right now: 111), here I am still enjoying the process of creating and sharing. It was hard to keep the consistency and there were some weeks I didn’t want to do anything (hashtag lazy lol) but reading comments about how my videos give relaxing vibes / inspiration for someone out there made me want more to produce & not become lazy. I also made a commitment with myself to upgrade my video editing styles and I’m so happy I’ve managed to graduate from iMovie already, haha! To be persistent on learning new things / improving your craft and being consistent during the process of everything.. those were my notes to myself since the start. : )
Anyway, more long paragraphs later on! Even though I’ve become so busy from Spring, I was able to ponder and realize a lot of things during this period. I feel like I’m evolving again like a pokemon lolol.

Last April 12, Japan Lover Me turned 4 years since our first launch. A lot has changed since then! : )
So happy that this baby of ours has been consistently progressing over the years! 🙂
It’s been a very challenging adventure but we’re all in for the fun ride!
Just yesterday, the actual boxes for JLM STORE & souvenir jacket samples from our partner maker have arrived!
I’m so proud of this design project because it used to be just an idea before even when we were struggling to setup JLM STORE.
Many thanks to Chichi / Little Miss Paintbrush for always putting your 1000% effort into everything that we all do. :”)
Souvenir jacket preorder will start soon at Japan Lover Me Store! Make sure to subscribe to our mailing list 😉
During my free time last week, I grabbed the opportunity to hanami at my neighborhood’s park. Oh the simple & free things that make me incredibly happy ~
