Things to do in Japan (by JapanLover.Me) + Sailormoon Things + How To Study in Japan (Teaser) + And MOREEE!

Hello everybody!

Just a quick blog entry about all the kawaii / JLM-related work I’ve been doing these past few weeks. Also, I have been working on‘s launch too! I’m sorry for the delay huhu totally unexpected! September is a real hectic month for me as we have a crazy goal for Store so I’ve been maximizing my days like crazy (check my twitter and it’s always a plug for any of the shops that I handle.. haha)! I can’t wait for the day/s I could watch a series / movie again without thinking much about the pile of work I need to do. Looking forward to those days, haha!

First off, I’d like to reintroduce our “Things to do in Japan” series part 2 at Japan Lover Me!

Things To In Japan - Japan Lover Me

What to eat, buy, visit, and do in Japan? We’re all about those in the following months!

Japanese Sukajan / Skajan Jackets from Japan Lover Me Store

Hello friends!

Just sharing this work-related update with you all! I just finished uploading 30+ Japanese sukajan items to and I’m so proud of myself for being able to finish that task. I am not a huge fan of “routine work” but working on JLM store has taught me patience through ~routine~. I am the type of person who would rather engage in creative brainstorming rather than listing items.. but now, I think I’m beginning to enjoy it wholeheartedly. This JLM store is one of my precious babies at the moment. Hopefully, this business venture will be successful too! 頑張ってます!

Gotta sleep now ~ Excited to meet a dear friend tomorrow!! :”)
