Hobonichi Diaries + #ABCxRainbowholic Kansai Trip

Hi all!

I just came back from a 3-day trip to Kansai (Osaka / Kyoto) with cappie Abbey. Here are some photos I’d like to share~

I took so many photos and I hope I can blog about the whole trip soon!

Not sure if I’ve already mentioned it on the blog (ahh, my memory ;_;) but I recently got myself a Hobonichi planner / diary (Spring edition). I actually discovered this months ago when I was lurking around a LoFT branch in our area and coincidentally, one of my good friends from Australia (Hi Jenni!) posted a page of  her super kawaii hobonichi planner (lots of pretty doodles, go give her a follow on instagram)! Hobonichi kept on haunting me for a couple of months (maybe 2 or 3? haha).. and I managed to practice self-control (which was TOUGH because I’d keep on looking through hobonichi planners everytime I’d go to LoFT). I’m actually proud of my purchasing habits presently because I don’t easily buy on impulse anymore as much as before, haha! #KailaAchievements

I told myself that if we exceed our goals / objectives for Japan Lover Me Store for another month, I’d finally get myself one. And we did! I waited for Abbey to arrive as well so we can choose our hobonichi diaries together. <3

During our last day in Kansai, we went to Kyoto to view the city in full sakura bloom.

Of course, we had to rent pretty kimono sets! 😉

Perks of having a friend who loves traveling / going around Japan / taking photos with you = pretty ig-worthy photos!
