Odaiba and Kappabashi

We love Odaiba. It's tacky and outdated, yet so charming at the same time. If I could live in Tokyo I would live on Odaiba for sure <3

Dolly weekend in Tokyo~

So this weekend was a dolly weekend- going to the Shinydoll studio on Saturday and a Den of Angels meet on Sunday :)

Hi from Tokyo!

I arrived in Tokyo yesterday! It was a bit of a tiring journey, but I'm happy to be here~

I'm here for two weeks, so expect a blog post every few days. Mark needs lots of afternoon naps, so gives me time to write these :p

I finally  invested in some Diamand Lash falsies, and I'm so happy with them! Even though my eyes are so tiny I need to cut off about half of each one :p

Room wear from Rakuten haul!

I ordered some room wear from Shirohato on Rakuten. It's an underwear shop with lots of choice and cheap prices, what more could you want :p

The shop is send you a confirmation email in English thanking you for your order and welcoming you as an International customer. Already impressed me much more than DreamV! I paid around 7.00am Japanese time and they shipped it that day. Notbad at all! I spent 4,000 yen on this whole order, and shipping was another 4,000 yen. Very reasonable I think for the amount of stuff!

Took the photos at night, so they do suck :p

Entire haul!

Gmarket mini beauty haul! + Chinatown restaurant review

I ordered a few other things but only photographed the beauty stuff :p

Tony Moly first off. Minishop here!

All the sachets are gifts, including a face mask and some Appletox. The pepper things seem to be for a 'hot body', haha.

The little round brown thing is chocolate scented soap! I haven't used it yet but I hope it's as nice as the Tony Moly soap I had before! The tube is Pure Angel Amy BB Cream. At 5,000Won it's pretty cheap, and so far I'm pleased with it, my skin feel very soft and it calmed it a lot. And it's not too heavy, either.

The bunny shaped thing is a lipstick! The colour was stronger than I expected but very nice. The little peach girl is a lovely lipgloss. It's peach scented and perfect for the handbag :)

Now, Etude House!

They gave me a big box of cotton wool pads as a gift with this. I thought I'd try a new Vitafoam, haven't used it yet so can't say what it's like! The little pink bottle is handcream for my bag, and it really smells like strawberry lollipops! I got the little peach panda handcream for my friend who is a nurse (occupational hazard of dry hands!), as hers is running out.

The Happy teatime face wash is Green Tea, as I heard it's the one to use for trouble skin. Not as lovely scented as Peach tea though.

The bottle is Peach Allover spray. It's a body spray but the bottle suggests to use it as a room or shoe spray. It has a lovely and sophisticated scent.

I also ordered some Gatsby for Mark from this shop.

It came packaged so cutely, with free gifts of coffee and some Missha samples. So sweet :)

While I'm here, I'd also like to share a restaurant I enjoyed in London's Chinatown. It's called Golden Day and is on the corner of Shaftesbury Avenue and Gerrard Place. Their speciality is Hunan cuisine.

Googling it now, I found some very negative reviews, and I can't say I agree with all of them. This is a true Chinese comfort food restaurant - lots of fat and chilli and dishes served over flames to keep them boiling hot at your table. It's the kind of place I crave on snowy days. But it's very expensive in comparison to other Chinatown restaurants. Each dish seems to cost a lot, but they are also huge, for sharing only. I don't think you could eat alone here.

We were sat in a little alcove, but despite being hidden away the service was excellent. Our teapot was checked every few minutes and the food arrived extremely quickly. The staff were happy to answer questions about the dishes and reduced the chilli for us!

We ordered the Mao style pork and even though I usually avoid pork it was really yummy. Very fatty, but with melt in the mouth tender meat! However my favourite dish was the dry pot mushrooms with pork:

It comes over a flame which boils away the sauce as you are eating. It was amazingly tasty, but way too much for two people! The mushrooms were really flavourful and the pork was soft. It's got lots and lots of chilli, so it's good with boiled rice to cool it down a bit :)

I looked strangely depressed in this photo hence the censorship! As you can see we simply couldn't eat it all, next time we'll bring more people :)

Edit: Forgot to mention! I'm getting together a 300 follower giveaway! I'm kinda broke but I'll try to make it good anyway :)

Bath powders mini haul (Rakuten)

This was my second Rakuten order, and I'm pretty pleased! The only problem was a HUGE customs charge. I kinda resent paying customs on bath salts. But it was worth it :)

I ordered from IMaster, but there are a lot of shops selling bath salts on Rakuten. IMaster did ship my stuff quickly though! Here is the whole category for bath powders.

 Back: Ginger honey sweat bath, Brown sugar honey Roman bath, Sweets bath pack
Front: Cypress bath,  Blue moon bath, Hot Milk bath, Honey soap.

I bought a new cheap bronzer, I'm quite happy with the look! However I totally forgot to put on mascara before taking the photo. Never mind XD

Second Gmarket haul (mostly beauty)

This order was pretty much only beauty products :)

The box was pretty small, and surprisingly for Gmarket, nearly full XD

My beauty products!

I realised today that I've totally neglected beauty on my blog! So here's a quick post on the products I use.

I've made a huge beauty order on Gmarket (Etude House, Tony Moly and Baviphat) so I'll be reviewing those when they arrive too :)

All about Amekaji

What's this? A Gal post? XD

I wanted to talk about my favourite Gal related style, Amekaji. It's a style which doesn't seem that well understood/appreciated, so I wanted to have a go at explaining it!

My two fashions: Gal meet and Fairy Kei haul!

This weekend I met up with some lovely Gals, Niijii, Floz and Caryn! It was a day of Purikura, food, simulator rides,bubble tea and plenty of lewd conversation. My kind of day!

I have a new style of lower lashes. It's the inner corner from the upper lashes I'm using. I'm not allowed nail varnish at work so I just quickly painted them plain ^^;

Outfit, puri etc under jump!

Spank / Fairy Kei shopping sites

What is Fairy Kei? 
Basically, a pastel pop 80's inspired cute fashion. Staples include cute hi tops, leggings with legwarmers or socks over the top, mini skirts/bloomer, character tees/round neck sweaters and lots of cute accessories. All in many slightly clashing pastel colours!
Since images explain so much more than words with fashion, visit these:
Image from Chibiusa's blog, as I think she represents this style perfectly <3

London Chinatown food reviews - Part 1

This is the first of (hopefully) a series of Chinatown food reviews :)

Mark and I are big eaters, and especially love Chinese food ( he is half Chinese after all!) So he's been eating in Chinatown his whole life, and I've been going there since my teens with Chinese schoolfriends ^^

Intro to Ball Jointed Dolls

This is a post about my long term hobby, collecting Ball Jointed Dolls. You might have heard of them being called 'Super Dollfie' but Super Dollfies are specific dolls made by Volks, who started it all, while ABJD is the generic term :)

This is a doll I have since sold, she's a Shinydoll Kaoli ^^
