Bye Bye 2016^ ^

Episode 50 information on Kawaii.i Webpage 

Hello everyone!

There's so much that happened this year, and its so surreal that 2017 is almost here!

In today's post, I'm going to reflect on some of my most memorable moments, as well as share what's to come for next year.

A Year Full of Milestones!

1. In February, I got to attend my very first Lolita store event in Houston, and got to meet AKIRA once again! It was a very memorable time for me, since I also bought my very first brand dress from Triple Fortune on that same day, as well as wore Lolita to school that day for the first time. 

2. After many years of looking from afar, I finally signed up and got accepted to the Japan Festival Fashion Show. Although it wasn't my first time modeling, it was great to model something that I truly was passionate about and loved. Running in to old and and making new friends was a blast, and I hope to re-apply again for next year!^ ^

3. Larme Girls of Houston and Kawaii International! Kawaii International is a popular Japanese television show that airs monthly on Nippon Hoso Kosai (NHK World Japan). 
As a long time viewer since their beginning in 2011, it was big surprise and honor to work with the show over the Summer vacation with my event and meet up circle, Larme Girls of Houston.  While there were some challenges at first, overall it was fun getting to know some of the hard working individuals behind the scenes that one's normally don't see, as well as working with friends.

Large Girls of Houston appeared on episode 50

There's so much planned for 2017! Although I wish I can share everything with you, for now I'll just give you a sneak peak of what's to come.
