Changes

It’s funny, when you start looking for a change you suddenly find the universe alings everything to make it happen…. things happen for a reason and I might be busy and excited about new projects but I am also excited to see overall change

Business and cats

Did I mention I started my own micro business? I sell stickers, washi tape and all sorts of things to use on a journal, I also just created my own youtube channel!

and I adopted a cat! g├╝erito is such a sweet cat! all sweet and fluffy!

I’m so excited about the new projects to come

Recent happenings

I have a partner now it seems a little weird to even say after so many years single, but it’s nice it’s comfortable and since it’s long distance we travel back and forth every month.

In between that, I’m juggling my job, my mini business and my regular travel!

this year it’s been absolutely crazy, but I’m embracing it, hoping for the best.

 

 

Japan is awesome

So I managed to go to Japan with a brief trip to Korea and back alive!

I absolutely loved Japan! I bought tons of stationery, tons of food, did my fair share of walking, those 3 weeks were some of the best.

I might post some of my musings here just for the laughs and I plan on making a travel journal so I might post my process here ­čÖé

 

I’m so happy and my heart is full of love and sakura┬á<3

Ghibli Challenge

I’m going to Japan next year and I love┬áStudio Ghibli’s films, the animation is amazing but I haven’t seen them all and the ones I’ve watched it was a long ago, since we are planning to go to the┬áStudio Ghibli’s museum and well Japan I want to have the full experience so my challenge is to watch all the Feature Films before March next year! Challenge accepted!

Life changes

These past months have been interesting, to say the least, I’m learning to be myself and enjoy and be proud of who I am, this year I’ve been trying to be more me, to not apologize and just do what I need to be.

I wish I could explain further here, and maybe I will, I just need to know how to get whatever is in my head into words.

When a week in paradise is not nearly enough

Last week I took a week vacation to visit one of my best friends and celebrate another one of my best friend’s birthday, who 3 years ago moved to no other place but Paradise aka Cancun, and I for one could have stayed longer! the weather was amazing, so was the company.

We visited Bacalar the lagoon of 7 colours, my ┬áfriend and I pretended to be wives to earn a free tour, we visited beaches, we went to Xcaret, we were tourist in Chich├ęn Itz├í, we laughed, we swam, we ate and we had a good old time and now I’m left with yearning and a need to go back and work on my tan so my legs stop looking white.

I’ll be back I know, I’m sure of that and I have Japan to look forward next year! but I miss my friend and I miss the beach and I wish I could be paid for being a tourist all year round.

365 Project

Thinking of maybe doing this, taking a picture every day (or try) and share my experiences and finds here once a week, I won’t start today, but plan to start at the beginning of February or March once I have more grasp on what I’m doing, I need to sort everything out, my head has been swirling with millions of ideas and projects and for once I want to actually do and not stop on the plan.

For one be more consistent on this blog is one of my always waiting projects.

2017 here we go!

 

Almost New year

I’m still figuring out what to share and what not to share here, I’m a complete mess.

I’m starting an instagram for my Art and doodles, I might add some extra commentary around here, maybe Stationery hauls? I buy stationery more than anything else, and it’s the thing I can spend money (lots of it) without feeling completely guilty, I just love everything, the pens, the colours, the tape, the notebooks. I might go crazy.

Anyway check this space, I might post that my artsy stuff, maybe my book reviews or movie reviews? movies? I don’t know

It might just keep being my thought dump, I might post the things I write and keep in a word document, is not like anyone reads this anyway…
