A trip in a nutshell

20160424_152728

Ah you know how much I love taking pictures and documenting everything… so you can image the haul I have from the Japan trip me and my brother just went on! It was short but man… were they the longest days of my life. This was my first time out of the country despite having my passport for the past 9 years? I was expecting my first trip to be to the Caribbeans but Japan is a good place too~ xDDD

I was able to get so much inspiration from the trip from my design work to how to make what I do more appeal-able and efficient! Even though I live close to a pretty decent sized Japanese community it’s different to see their culture in a… 360 format. Really being submerged into it. I see the appeal but to be honest… it’s just a nice place to visit. I like California too much to see myself anywhere else!

Anyways. I have a lot about the trip and trying to make time out for a little vlog! I’ve been busy but been really lazy as well. It’s been weird. I’ve been blessed to have supporters on some of my media platforms show their eagerness for updates so I’m working on it!!

I have a full on rant later if I feel like I have time. Plus it really helps me to put my thoughts out in writing… so more later!

wo!

Dresses got wreaked

Just this past weekend (LOL or not. I wrote the first half of this about 1~2 weeks ago) I had a wonderful fairy tale photo shoot with a new photographer~ It was entertaining and was really a good experience for me working with a professional photographer. The models were quite professional as well so I was really glad it turned out so nice. One of the models actually complimented us on how organized we were with changing them and bringing things over. I was glad! :D When it comes to my dresses I do have them really organized just because it just looks nicer that way~

I’ve been getting over a cold and since my tax season is almost done I’ve been busy at work. Adding together all the events I have to get ready for I’ve been pretty busy o.o Yet at the same time I haven’t been able to do anything.. it’s weird.

(Here’s where I’m starting off in the present.. aka the 15th)

SO! YEA! Guess what? Those dirty dresses are still in my car and still haven’t been cleaned!! XD I haven’t been able to get around to it and probably won’t be able to until after I come back from the trip >.< Been SUPER busy. Neglecting so much BUT I do have so much planned and I Feel like a trip is exactly what I need to start anew when I come back~~ Thought I’d finish up this post as I’m working on a lot of caffeiene in my system currently. TAX SEASON IS ALMOST OVER, I’m so happy. I need a vaca.

POKE!

If you haven’t heard of Poke (pronounced kinda like poki) its kinda like a sushi bowl with all types of things~ Here is SoCal it’s been on the rise which makes me really happy~ It’s quite affordable and it’s usually super delicious~ Although I’m used to eating the raw fish and what not, I am sure this probably doesn’t seem appealing to a lot of people o.o

Anyways! ITS FINALLY A SLOW WEEK! I mean… slow in a sense. I’m getting ready for a photoshoot this weekend so not completely slow. But it’s nice to not stress out so much xD

I also have been kinda on edge about people. This is why I create contracts, it kind of weeds out the people who might screw you over later if they don’t sign at the beginning. I know that now xD On another topic I’m not doing a fashion show anymore. They conveniently told me after I decided to stick up for my models and pay equality. It made me really mad … how some organizations are just unprofessional even though they’re trying to create an event for such a good cause. Actually.. it makes me more sad. Anyways I wrote a really good email in response but decided to write a more simple and professional response back. I realize its a small world and I don’t need any bad press. But I think I still have the right to be mad about it and rant a little xDDD

But YES! FINALLY BACK TO SOME NORMALITY :D

Pretty lazy

DSCN4422

Let’s be honest here… sometimes we just have days where the will to do anything just kinda… diminishes >> And not like I don’t want to do work… it’s just I don’t o.o And I really hate that feeling. So today I kinda went a little overboard with friends in Borderlands 2 >> We got some of the DLCs so that’s fun. And I kinda have skipped some working out times and instead went for my ice cream =3 Which my family knows that the green tea one is kinda claimed by me so I can eat straight from the container and no one else eats it~~ XD Then again maybe they don’t eat it cause I eat from the container o.o Plus I’m that person that likes to eat ice cream in a pattern kinda way so it usually ends up looking like a dome…

Anyways. I plan on going back on a schedule for the sake of productivity. Plus my dad has been on my case more for going back to school. Which… if I had the will to get into debt for a title I won’t be using… then I’d already be doing it~ If education wasn’t so expensive where it takes a good what… 20…30 years to possibly pay off then I’d love to learn more! But for now I’m just doing the best I can. Plus I’m fortunate enough to have found something I really love to do (you know… when I actually do it) xD

Some updates on that~ Since I obviously don’t have the most interesting life I decided that updating everyday is kinda.. meh. Mayb eI’ll regret it later, who knows. But for now I want to be able to use my time to update the brand and work on my craft. =3 I’ve already have 6 out of 10 new designs sketched out. I’m excited~ It’s all seeming to come together nicely and I’m always excited~ Hopefully this ALA fashion show will be a big step for me in terms of my creations and my business. I do have a lot riding on this so I really hope it works out for the best!

still packed

20150831_181110

Still in the mist of cleaning up my work desk and sorting everything out~ So the dresses are still in it’s bag waiting for a temp home as I try to find one T.T I don’t have alot of room in the house so I’m trying to make-do as I keep expanding. SO, I just cleaned out a storage container under the bed which contained a lot of old cosplays/fashion items…. going to wash them all and either store them again for sentimental reasons or put them up for sale! Probably for dirt cheap just so I can get rid of them xD I haven’t gone through all my old cosplays so I’ll do that tomorrow to fully see what I can put on sale…. and if no one buys them I’ll probably just start tossing them T.T I hate doing that so I really do hope I can find a home for them even though they are poorly made in my eyes >> We’ll see!! One of the outfits int he pile is my much loved Alice from Wonderland maid! It’s still So adorable but I’d rather just remake than wear it again…. so … on sale it is!! More info on that later though~

Started on a commission I’ve been neglecting for a time being (yes the client does know too, so no worries, I don’t neglect and not tell them LOL) So now I’m cleaning, creating up the brand majesti designs, and working on commissions! Maybe tomorrow I’ll be able to take some fancy shots of the designs before I store them until the photoshoot…. I hope so. I’ve been waking up and after eating and some time up I start to get these massive headaches o.o like migraine headaches T.T the day before yesterday I lived with it and got sick. yesterday I just took meds as relief. And today I drank coffee and it went away LOL gg right?

Getting back into the groove of business and really trying to not be lazy XD it gets hard sometimes especially when it seems everyone around me tends to always be playing something XDDD I WANNA PLAY TOO T.T But hey. work hard play hard right?
