Hey cutie! How are you? ♡ I don’t know about you but I’m really bad at celebrating my achievements and I’m always focusing on the negatives, but I recently listened to a workshop all about celebrating your wins and it really inspired me to write this post!
I reached 160k+ views on this blog
This… Is something I’m still trying to comprehend but I’m so, so happy! All of my hard work from over the years (and I mean YEARS) have finally paid off! I’ve never expected to reach that many views but I am so, so grateful and so happy.
A whole year without burnout
Never thought it was going to happen but yep, I’ve managed to go through a whole year without burnout. Tiredness, yes, but never truly ill (I kind of get flu symptoms when I have burnout). This is because I stopped putting so much pressure on myself to get things done and just started going with the flow and putting my mental health first. So go me!
I hit over 2k subscribers on YouTube
Last year I made the leap to start creating YouTube videos, and I continued doing so this year and I’m just so, so happy with my channel. I’m creating the content that I 100% love and I don’t feel pressured to constantly create something now that I don’t have a set schedule.
I bought from mercari for the first time ever
Yep – been interested in gal and jfashion for over 10 years, and only now have I mustered the courage to order from mercari. Probably doesn’t sound like a small win but I’m one of those who get suuuuper nervous when buying from a site I’m not familiar with and having to deal with shopping services. So yeah, proud of me!
YouTube collab with cybr.grl
Honestly when Kristina (aka cybr.grl) messaged me to do a lil’ style swap with her I was like, “who???? Me????????” She’s a huge inspiration to me so I was pretty overwhelmed haha and wanted to do my absolute best in transforming to a decora gal so that I didn’t let her down! She did an absolutely incredible job of transforming herself into gyaru (specifically amekaji gal). Here are our videos!
Learnt some new parapara routines
Me and parapara… Well, it’s a difficult relationship lol but I managed to learn some new routines! I really want to continue learning and maybe actually try the full routine to Velfarre 2000 (I can only do a little part of it).
Celebrated my 10 year blog anni!
I’m so happy and to be honest I prefer posting on here than on sns! Click here to read my full post about it.
More blog opportunities
As the world began to heal, more blog opportunities landed in my inbox. I turned down most of them (as I’m suuuuper picky with who I want to work with) but I’m so happy to say that I was able to work with Chi Clothing, VeryNeko, Arigato Japan, MaskTime, Yumi and Sudio!
Okie, and I think that’s it for my wins of 2021! I’m really pleased that, despite the rollercoaster of a year 2021 has been, things are slowly picking back up again.
I also want to say a huge thank you for supporting my blog! It’s been just over a year since I made the decision to go back to posting nearly every day and doing more casual posts, and I feel like it was the best decision I could make for my mental health.
What wins do you wanna celebrate today? ♡
