I'm currently taking a break from working on my current project. Phew~ 大変だけど、嬉しいです！
I can't believe how so many things can happen in just a month! Seriously, sometimes I think that days have become too short. *_*
Anyway.. here's a rather complicated outfit photo for my HFW (Harajuku Fashion Walk) work for TokyoFashion.com! I just finished the video today and I'm very pleased with the outcome. Please wait for the article to come out, hihi~
Last January, though it was my birthday month.. I was actually having a LOT of down days because of personal reasons. YUP, optimistic people like me do get depressed too. but... after drowning myself with endless self-motivation quotes & engaging myself with various creative outlets...... each and every single day, I could feel that I was getting better and better. ^^
I guess that what they say is true... hitting "rock bottom" in your life really does empower you more. It's the PERFECT time you can pause & reflect, filter your thoughts & drain all the negative emotions, reflect & refocus your goals. Then once you're all set & you feel that* adrenaline rush, you can restart your car engine until it works again.. then you continue your trip or you take the detour you planned instead. Hehe~ don't worry when I really feel 10000% better (can't wait for the day when I'd just laugh about the unfortunate things that happened to me), I'll write a motivational post for my readers (who might be experiencing something similar). I've always wanted to share a more personal / relatable entry anyway. ^^v
On a different note, something really, really great happened a few days ago.. but I have to keep it for myself first. ;__;
Never thought there would be a day I'd prepare a short Rainbowholic presentation.. and in Japan! The meeting went so great that I even had a spontaneous crybaby moment out of happiness. Yes, I also cry when I'm too happy (ureshisugi)!! Had to contain myself after because my eyeliner wasn't waterproof.. hahaha #girlproblems
Another fact about myself is.. I actually like doing presentations. Reminds me of my advertising thesis days.. which is still probably the best presentation I did (yet) with the best team I could ever be with (hi Gracie & Patrick!!) ^^
Left: Spring is just around the corner!! And I really love this photo, so I'm sharing it.. hehe
Right: Had to take a rest for a whole day because I had a gallbladder attack (ohnoeeeee) triggered by that stupid cheese biscuit + lack of sleep! I became a Rilak..kaila that day. (my lame humor is killing me ugh)
Harajuku Fashion Walk #15 Sneak Peek
Here's a teaser photo of the HFW last weekend ~
I'm part contributor and part HFWalker, haha. :P
Had meaningful life conversations with もりさん! This is why I love being with my TokyoFashion.com friends, we always have the best conversations over great food. Love the perks, haha! ^^v
After that, I, of course, had to go visit KIDDYLAND. Second happiest place on Earth next to Tokyo Disneyland. Hehehe~
Want to collect all of these!! I actually had a lot of lip creams with me before they decided to mysteriously disappear. Huhu..
Had to buy that Rilakkuma oil blotting sheet pack. :)) *forever an impulsive Rilakkuma shopper*
Fool your friends with these koara no machi nomnom's.. hahaha
Probably the cutest and fluffiest camera bags ever!! *_*
LITTLE TOTORO CUTIES Y U EXPENSIVE

Visiting this corner every time I can.. to inspire myself to do my best -> to earn money -> to fulfill my vinyl toy room dream (in the far future, hahaha)
I really, really love the hamburger bearbrick. And Kyary's of course. And Shoko's too!
So expensive! *_*
Stairway to Kawaii heaven...

When I was about to ride the train, I had the best luck that day. I was able to pass by this great indie band called "Cure Rubbish"! I super love this type of bands~
My impulsive purchases from Rilakkuma store. >_<
Yep, the facial sheets are mecha kawaii too.
Loving this Baby Lips color from Maybelline! The price isn't bad too~ ^^
Random Daily Stuff
Had to eat healthier stuff (not that I'm complaining, I actually like this healthy lifestyle more).. I finished the strawberries in just 1 seating I think *_*
Super craving for the green tea dougnuts from Doughnut Plant!! + me during work / Rilakkaila time (lazy mode haha)
My expectations and reality photo comparison, haha~
Spent half of the day arranging some of the giveaway winners' prizes! *_* Really did my best here..
To those who are waiting for the Japan Essay Contest results, please wait guys ;__; Having trouble with time management + filtering / choosing the winners but will try to announce as soon as I can! :-)
Alice-themed nail stickers I found in a drugstore. A bit pricey for me, huhuhu.. 400-500 yen I think?
Hinamatsuri-themed snacks are all over the stores, super super cute!!
My LinePlay transformation + a super cool Maneki Neko room *___*
Add me up on LinePlay and let's visit each other's rooms~ my avatar is "Kailaroo". Sadly, my invitation code doesn't work anymore (and I already spent all my gems huhuhuhu) ...
Pastel Rainbows + A Be@rbrick Surprise!
I like mixing two different styles together and here's what I came up with for a special meeting.
Rainbow cap from Village Vanguard, Les Fantaisies tights, Milanoo lolita shoes, Jumble Store blazer and of course.. Rainbowholic Badge!!
After the meeting in Shibuya, while my brother and I were walking... we saw this store.
You guys already know about my recent Be@rbrick love affair.. and discovering this official Medicom Toy store (Project 1/6) was such a delightful surprise!!
Thank you Shintaro-san for allowing us to take some photos! ^^
Had to take advantage of the huge mirror, haha. I love mirror shots, if you haven't noticed yet..
400% beauties!!! SPONGEBOB huhu
Super cute plushies! I think that these plushies are only made available in Project 1/6.
Hi! I don't like your price. : ))
Finally, my first Rilakkuma be@rbrick and it's the Happy Be@rbrick with keychain!!
I got another Eva be@rbrick from Series 25. At least the double is Eva.. *comforts self*
White Day gifts are everywhere now..
Hinamatsuri-themed snacks are just.. ;___;
Sadly, I can't eat these yummy food for the time being. Gallbladder must get better first.. ;_;
Ate this instead.. didn't have any pain so maybe I'm good with mochi & adzuki beans... hmmm.
Received another sweet parcel from my Malaysian reader/friend, Janice~ thank you so much for these! Made my day ^^
How I start with my videos. Yep, I edit with iMovie.. hopefully there'd be a day when I can understand Final Cut and Premier/After Effects too!
Back to my original lair. *_* SUPER CRAZY PLACE i can't even.. huhu. I need Kami-sama's help to clean up everything huhuhuhu
For the past month, I stayed at my brother's place instead to concentrate on our work / my project... *_* Now I have to face the reality of this mess.. yikes.
And here are photos of a sleepy / groggy Kaila with sunflower patches on her cheeks to end this entry. Hehehe~
That was kinda long, thanks for scrolling until here!
