And flying to Japan :D But you can't hate me because, well, just look at the cesspool that is my brain!
oh brave new world that has such...creatures in it
You would think I'd become acclimatised to drugstore random but some things become even more bemusing at a closer glance.
honesty in advertising: she looks genuinely pained!
I'll stick with my virgin's-blood baths and leeches, thanks
Korean brand Tony Moly valiantly resists this minimalist-packaging trend:
Strawberry, Plum, Mangosteen, Peach, Pomegranate, Cherry, Apple (all seven are scented in a very sweet candied version of their names). Plum, Peach and Apple are very sheer jellied bases with shimmer (fuchsia, pink-and-lilac and pinky red respectively). All of these swatches took around 3-4 swipes.
All things considered, I think my drugstore hauling has been fairly restrained.
blinged-out sponge applicators for swatching and falsies-applicator
various moisturising, depuffing etc. eye masks from Japanese, Korean and Taiwanese brands
hand and foot sheet masks, and more konjac sponges for face and body
(although I found it hard to resist this whole display of scrubbies *high-pitched squeals*)
more face masks. We'll see how the firming ones work on my new double chin...
Speaking of which, more food pics, anyone?
yet another froyo place
where I may already have a 'usual': matcha-flavoured and tart Hokkaido yoghurt with oreo crumbs and blueberries OR sweet adzuki
And for a change, an ice cream parlour, again using milk from Hokkaido (the next edition of Terry Pratchett's Where's My Cow? should just consist of one page with the word 'Hokkaido' on it...)
Some recent fusion-pastries-OTD
adzuki mochi danish
Earl Grey, caramel, apple and edible gold layer cake
matcha, chocolate, orange and vanilla cake
Worry not, I'm supplementing my diet with salty snacks too
pizza, roast-chicken, roast-squid and sugar-snap-pea crisps
an abomination known as Korean Volcano Bread -- brioche with kimchi and mushroom filling
you can even have rock salt and cheesy foam in your tea/coffee (this is surprisingly delicious)
(that shop is called Happy Lemon, a Taiwanese chain which sells delicious bubble tea)
Another coffee shop from which I have now been banned is called Cowboy SeVen. But maybe other filthy minds can work out why my hysterically giggling-and-pointing self was asked to leave.
My first view of the display board:
Well this IS the continent of various placenta goods. And I had been primed by other shops, like
and this popular bedding and sleep-wear chain
and of course
My customary expression resembles this barstool
Night-night, any lovelies who made it this far :) Rest up your scrolling hands and sleep tight :*
