New Hair, New Kaila! + Love Mail From A Malaysian Reader + Random Stuff

Hello~! KONBANWA 皆さま〜!!

Please welcome the NEW Kaila!! Hehehe~!  :yay:

For some reason, whenever I have my hair done / I color it with a new one.. I’d feel like a new person afterwards!!

It’s been so long since I had a dark hair. For the past.. 4 years (???) I’d always play around with brown color (orange-y brown, caramel brown, reddish brown, I’ve done it!) but I promised to myself to never go darker again.

But change is always good, even the drastic ones! Hahaha!

 Also, one of my readers commented before (Hi Maisa!) about going darker hair-wise. Thanks for the little push! That did it, haha!

At first, I wanted to buy the FRESHLIGHT hair washes since these are super easy & fun to use but…

… I decided to try out this brand!  :star: And I love it!!

My hair is so thick that’s why I had to buy 2 sets. And it turned out that I should’ve bought 3 instead ;__;

 Because of my very “heavy” crown, I overcooked the top part of my hair by accident. That is why it seems a bit black-ish in the photos when it’s actually “dark brown”.

As you can see from my tips below, it became a bit gradient-ish. I just found out today that I really left a part that’s a bit caramel / ash gray color! Hahaha!!

  

That’s my hair against the light. No color edits here!  :tongue: And I love my lips red, if you haven’t noticed that yet…

♡ The Making of DIY Itasha Volkswagen New Beetle ~Rainbowholic Kuruma-chan~ ♡

Since the video is taking forever to be edited, I figured I should just go with just the photospam itself first~!   :pink:

If you have no idea about this Rainbow car project, you should go here and here first! Or watch the Rainbow ruckus video  :cute2:   :tongue:

When will I ever upgrade to Finalcut or Adobe Premiere?? *lazy Kaila*

:dead:

   

My brother’s White New Beetle from months ago…

Looks very plain but still cute! ^^

While my brother was in the Philippines canvasing for reflector sticker sheets (these are super expensive in Japan), I started designing the Itasha car.

One VERY HOT day, I took measurements of the car + tried my best in drawing.

Here is what it looks like with simple / original / not-so-BADASS  wheels + photoshop !

I tried photoshop-ing the design but it was taking a lifetime already so I opted for the pen and paper!

I feel like a real car designer = )))))

I feel so pro naming my drawings “fig. 1” even though I know I should be probably using another term for it. Hahaha~

ALL-OUT for Rainbowholic! (First Step: Rainbow New Beetle Car??)

A couple of months ago, my brother and his friends had seen GREAT potential in Rainbowholic here in Japan (or probably a world domination in a few years, haha kidding). When I was just speaking out loud of my Harajuku-related dreams which involve Rainbowholic shop and cafe (plus other crazy dreams of a non-Japanese girl), my brother / they told me it’s crazy but it’s definitely possible!

Also, I have received such great reviews / feedback about my blog on how it serves as a Japan portal of everything kawaii-related.. :blush3:  My boss(es) from TokyoFashion.com even told me that I have “different eyes” when I see something kawaii (evident in my videos, perhaps?). At first, I didn’t realize that my blog would have such impact on people or my unique perspective of Japan’s kawaii culture would be praise-worthy! I also had a double-take (or make that triple) whether I was hearing it right from the Japanese themselves. @_@  :what: *insert random “it’s not good enough” thoughts here*

And because of that, we decided to give 100000% of our efforts to make Rainbowholic recognized.

To start with all the full-blast Rainbowholic promotion here in Tokyo and via facebook/or the www itself, my brother decided to sacrifice his pearly white New Beetle. His first car in Japan!   :blank:

He and his wife even went to the Philippines just to purchase all the materials! I went @_____@ when my brother told me about it a few weeks ago. My brother is a great businessman which also means.. he wouldn’t invest or devote time in something (in this case, in Rainbowholic) that would be pointless / nonsense. Maybe someday, Rainbowholic will cause a lot of noise (the good kind) in Japan or even in overseas.. and we might get help / aid in achieving our Harajuku shop and cafe dreams! Whether we super nail it in the future or not (but we must!!), we’re all doing these gimmicks for (sincere) rainbow fun. I can assure you. ^^v

The following post is only the FIRST PART of the rainbowholic car blog feature ^^

ikou~ ikou~!!

(let’s go, let’s go)

During a hot summer afternoon >_<
