Today's post is all about my fabulous trinkets I order out of Japan, as well as some reliable websites. I am not sure if you have read my past posts under the "Asian Sensation" section, but I mentioned hoe some sites were not reliable, and some products were not umm....as they were mentioned online.
First, I'll start with reliable websites:
amazon.com is usually a safe bet if you want to get your Asian goods, but just to play it safe, I always check to make sure the item's location is in the US. Better safe than sorry, right?
This is a safe one as well as one of my personal favorites. They sell everything, but I like to get a lot of snacks or make up on here. Fast shipping as well!
Think of this place as the Japanese Sephora. It is realiable, afforadable, has a great selection, and the shipping is inexpensive, but takes a little longer than Daiso.
Anyone who knows me at ALL knows im obsessed with Hello Kitty, so why not go to her headquarters?! Sanrio is the answer. The best part if they have items that are not typically sold at stores in the US. Can we just appreciate the fact that Sanrio just launched Hello Kitty Minnetonka shoes?!?
The products below I ordered from daiso.com. They were pretty inexpensive and the shipping was quick. Also, if buying from a Japanese site is sketchy to you, you can find the blotting sheets, charcoal mask, and eyelashes on Amazon.
Bottom Row: Daiso Three-tier Eyelash Case: How cute is this? It looks like a little powder poof, but it is a case for your false lashes and lash glue. Now that I have this, I don't scare myself thinking there are spiders in my room because now I have a place to put my lashes. Love it! $11.00 USD. Toyoepin Lashes: Ok here's the thing about buying lashes straight from Asia: my anatomy gets in the way. I have very round-top, almond shaped eyes, and these lashes are definitely designed for a thinner, Asian eye. Usually I can trim lashes to fit my eye, but these just wouldn't budge: too straight for my eye and the corners kept popping up. However, they felt silky, buttery and amazing to the touch, so it is a shame I cant use them. $2.46 USD.
Sweatshirt: Boy London for $25.00 USD: that's a STEAL. I love it and it's my new favorite sweatshirt. The only thing is, I would buy it a few sizes up from what you normally are because international sizing is weird. I am usually a small, but I ordered a Med. and it's STILL small. Oh well, I have a Boy London sweatshirt lol
Mug: How adorable is this? and you know what's even more adorable? The price! I mean if you want to get one from urban Outfitters and pay an arm and a leg, that's your business, but me? I only paid $13. score.
Chanel Sweatshirts: Okay, obviously these aren't real, but boy are they cute. They were about $17 each and the quality actually is pretty nice. The black one is fleece-lined and hasn't faded and it fits me nicely. The pink one is actually a rose-print and is more of a slippery feel: it is polyester, not fleece. It is really long in length however. I wore it with shorts one time and it looked like I forgot my pants. Oh well. They're pretty dope shirts, but if non-Authentic Asian goods aren't your thing, steer clear of these.
SASA BEAUTY HAUL:
So there you have it, folks. My collection of Japanese-imported goods. If anyone finds any more good ones, feel free to share them with me.
Thanks for viewing!
