Chateau de Kawaii PhotoShoot + Taiiku no Hi Recap + This Week’s Goals

Hi friends old and new! Happy Monday. I hope you’re well. Last week was eventful with Lena’s Chateau de Kawaii promo photo shoot and SCETA Japan Center’s Pokemon Taiiku no Hi. So I thought I’d swing through and tell you about them. Everything was fun, fun, fun. The end! 😹😹😹 Ok. Really! I’ll share about the photo shoot first, recap Taiiku no Hi, and after all that, I’ll share my goals for this week. ^^

✨Chateau de Kawaii Promo Shoot

Do you remember the model call I announced a little while ago? Well THIS is that photo shoot. And it’s beautiful! But Before the photo spam, let me tell you how proud of Lena I am. ^^ She came to me with her idea some time early this year and trusted me to help her through it. But then you show up to her first photo shoot and think … “Girl! You GOT this!” ^.^

Let the games begin! ^^

A HUGE thank you to DC KawaiiStyle community and participants for supporting us (supporting Lena, especially) through building this concept. Let’s keep making DC kawaii! <3

✨Pokemon Taiiku no Hi

Another big event that I was connected to this past week was SCETA Japan Center’s Taiiku no Hi. Due to so many things happening this past weekend, our turn out was small. But everyone who attended had a great time! For that, I am more thank thankful. ^^

Since there were more artists than attendees, it kinda became an #inktober art party. (Check out my round-up from week one here) 😀

Hey! Art counts as exercise 🎨💪, so I’m not complaining ^.~

art party! art party!
art party! art party!

✨Weekly Goals

Each week, #blkcreatives network asks what your week will be, using a fill in the blank question. It’s a wonderful opportunity to consciously set your intention for the week. In my opinion, it’s also a great way to remind yourself that there are smaller goals and steps needed to complete the bigger picture. Every Monday, I respond, but this week I’m taking action! (Though honestly I take action every week without acknowledging it) From today, this week will be cool, kawaii, and creative. DC KawaiiStyle may have a new community co-ordinator after tomorrow *fingers crossed*. That’s huge AND exciting! That takes care of the cool part of my week. ^^ And then, the kawaii and creative parts are covered in this week’s actions goals~
  • catch up on #inktober videos and inking
  • finish Chateau de Kawaii promo art
  • practice hand styles in my hobonichi
  • breave child! After 2 weeks with no days off, I gotta breathe!
BOOM! Just like that, there are my goals. <3 I may be able to accomplish more, but we’ll see. I don’t want to over commit. LOL

How’s your week starting off?! (Be sure to comment below ☟)

Happy Monday & Gambare, minna<3 🎨☀️🌈💗💕✨ Imani
