Life Lately + Hobonichi Diaries + Kyoto Trip Preview 🍵

Hi everyone!

After long week doing various work, I’m so happy that I finally got the time to post and update this blog!

Ever since 2017 started, a LOT has happened. It’s been such a whirlwind lately but I’m just really grateful that even though it’s been a rough start (work-wise), things seem to be working out for me. I’m getting shocked almost every other day, lol!

Anyway, let me just narrate a few things from notable (and regular) days. ^^

Being able to film during my free time (lunch breaks and mornings before work, haha) is something that I will be always thankful about!

Indeed, if you really want something to kick off, you have to make time for it. This year, I aim Rainbowholic.TV to really grow 🙂

Little by little, I’ll get there. ^^

Such a fine day in Kyoto. Wearing Kimono during my birthday in my most favorite place in the world was the best for me.

Taking days off every year for solo travel really freshens up my spirits.

The little things such as admiring this view while inside the train just make me so giddy like a child. Reminds me of the time I traveled solo to Hokkaido too!

Rented a kimono in Arashiyama (Yume Kyoto Kimono) and chose this adorable design! Simple but kawaii!

Getting surprises and gifts such as this from random strangers (hello, Yume Kyoto Kimono staff!) = aahhhh best feeling!

How many times have I typed “best” / “happy” words here? Haha! I’m running out of synonyms!

Matcha matcha!

I wanted to freeze this moment so bad. So peaceful, serene and perfect. Me and my matcha dessert for breakfast, haha!

Hobonichi Updates + Meeting Annika + My First “Hello” 🌈

Hi everyone!

Finally, I have some time to update and write something personal (scroll down below to the bottom part to read haha). I’ve been waiting for this day since last week, haha! I should be fixing some stuff right now as I’m doing a general apartment cleaning.. but..  that can wait. I really need to unload many thoughts from my brain, haha.

Moreover, I’ve been really busy preparing for JLM-STORE.com-related work and I’m going to announce a very important / special thing soon! So please look forward to it! ; )

Before I write down my thoughts, here are some updates I’ve done in my other social media outlets, haha.

Life Updates + Autumn Lookbook Video + #ABCDailyJournal Start! 🌈

Hi everybody!

I just realized that I haven’t blogged that much recently. Blame Scarlet Heart Ryeo & W – Two Worlds, haha! I don’t know if anyone is aware but I’m a certified K-drama marathoner… lolol. I could spend the whole day in bed and in my pajamas watching unrealistic love stories online. Realistic or not, I just really love how Koreans make / produce movies and dramas! Watching Kdramas alone just makes me want to book a trip to Korea! If you have any recommended 2014 – present Korean drama for me, feel free to let me know please. ; ) I love Descendants of The Sun, Iljimae (period kdramas), She Was Pretty, Pinochio, and the like. Arigatou in advance! 😉
