Hobonichi Updates + Stationery Trading Fun + Successful Kawaii Market 2016!

Hi everybody!

Sorry for the lack of blog updates recently. Life has been pretty eventful and I just want to maximize my remaining time here in Manila. Enjoying and “living in the moment” first before sharing everything later, haha!

To start, let me share some hobonichi updates!

I went there last Thursday and it was raining in the morning. I was so hungry so I had a quick breakfast at Mcdonald’s first!

It was also my first time to see the Spring version of the Takeshita Dori banner!

January 3 + Food and Friends + Everyday Kawaii Life

Before you scroll down below, go and watch TV first OR check your facebook / instagram because this entry will definitely take a lot of time to load.  😆

:star:

This blog entry will contain random snaps from my handy iPhone from last December up to now~

I actually have moreeee and this one has been filtered already. : ))

      

Honestly, for the past days / week, I’ve been feeling drained. And a little bit lost.

I actually thought of closing down this blog (not my social media accounts) for quite a long time because of the amount of work / sudden gush of responsibilities (family-related) I have now.

But I realized that the amount of work or that the load isn’t really the problem.

It’s just that I didn’t know how to spend my time wisely nor organize everything in an efficient manner, without sacrificing something that I love doing.

It might be a bit weird but after reflecting whether to stop or not, I came up with a list on how to make blogging become more effortless on my part~ and I’m doing it now.

I have to maximize the hours I have in a day to allot time for everything that I want to accomplish.

I have to be more responsible in handling my time. : )

My aim this year is to not be tirelessly busy, but be more focused & productive so that I could have more time doing what I enjoy the most (to keep me sane, hehe)!  :yay:

      

Hope you enjoy the kawaii photo spam below!  :happy:

Random La La La

Before my birthday (actually during Kawaii PH launch day), ChiChi handed me a Christmas + birthday present.

I didn’t open it until it was Christmas and imagine my shock when I saw a framed giant CLOW CARD called THE RAINBOWHOLIC.

ChiChi is a creative genius!  :heart:

Watching the sunset while sitting on the grass. Simple joys that I very much treasure.

On my birthday, after attending a morning mass from our church, saw this dreamy cotton candy blue vintage beetle.

Someday, love.  :blush3:

Waiting for the sunrise from my place.

 

Yay for food <3

2013 ended with this great news.
