Kansai Spring Trip 2016: Osaka Day 1

Hi everybody!

Last Spring, my dear friend Abbey and I went to have a 3-day trip in Kansai Region (Osaka – Kyoto). It was super fun and unforgettable. Still couldn’t forget the time we got ourselves lost because of my very dependable “navigational skills”, haha! We booked a night bus from Saitama and we arrived at a VIP Lounge (that’s how they call it) somewhere near Osaka station. If you’re planning to go to Osaka / Kyoto, booking a night bus (try willerexpress) is an affordable option compared to riding a shinkansen / bullet train.

Japan Lover Me Turns Three + Cute Dino Goods+ Japan Spring Adventure Preview

Hi everyone!

Just taking a break from today’s work duties. Taking a break = blogger mode on, haha!

If you’ve been following my snaps (rainbowholic.me), you would know how I’ve become so (overly) attached to my hobonichi.

I think that this hobonichi activity has become my regular stress-reliever. Everyday, I respond to many emails and messages (mostly to answer clients’ inquiries / to disseminate tasks within my team) and I would easily get overwhelmed by everything happening all at the same time. I’ve realized that allowing myself to have a downtime (and just be myself, doodling my dreams on papers and designing the pages with washi tapes lol) is actually a good creative exercise. : ) You guys should also try it! Add more color to your day ~

It’s amazing how a simple work day like today (and mind you, it was stressful haha) became much more interesting with this simple form of leisure!

I bought some Gudetama stickers / washi tapes when I went to Sanrio Puroland before.. and I’m so happy that I finally get to use these for a personal project! 😀

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! 😉

Wanted to take these cuties home with me!

(If you’re curious, I blogged about my Kyoto travel (Summer) before and you can read my tips here! ^^ )

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