Life & Work Updates + July Favorites + Rainbowholic Studio Preview

Hi everybody!

This week has been really tough because I had to do a lot of “physical work” for Rainbowholic + JLM Store. I want some thai massage right now.. huhu.

No worries, I’m still surviving so….. life, bring it on! :))

(the things I do for work. ahhahaha omg Rainbowholic spotted climbing the roof ?! :)) )

I work twice a week at our company to help out. During the rest of the week, I become a Rainbowholic slave (just kidding haha).

Not sure if I’ve mentioned this before but a few months ago, we moved most of our inventory to another place in Saitama (inaka / local area). Everyone has really been “gambatteru” (doing his / her own best) to get things done & I’m so proud of all of our achievements produced by team work 🙂

This video is about how I keep myself motivated even if there’s a lot of ~overwhelming~ things happening in my life.

Hope it helps anyone out there! 🙂

I’ve been fixing my extra room in the apartment for sometime since I want to make it as my studio / mini office (need to upgrade from my “bed office”, haha). Here’s what it looks like currently. I’m planning to change it every month or when I can 🙂

You too, gambatte!

  1. “ahhahaha omg Rainbowholic spotted climbing the roof ?!” JLM Team as stylish dorobo :))))

    Tokyu Hands is the best. I went to the Ikebukuro branch, roamed for an hour, and almost didn’t escape. Huhu.
