H&M Grey Shoes

I  normally don't wear sneakers but I got this pair the day before my vegas trip. I knew I had to walk miles down the strip so I had to get them to save my feet. Simple shoes for a good price. Price: $ 14.95

The sales person gave me such a big bag for shoes.

Coach Colorful Star Keychain

This is the other keychain I mentioned from before in my previous entry. As I said before, I found this behind my entertainment center as I was cleaning it. I kinda like this one only cause it's more colorful. I think I will use this one.

Palty Sakura Creamy

I really wanted to dye my hair for the summer but haven't had the chance. With school starting next month. I had to get to it. I bought Sakura Creamy by Palty at Mitsuwa. Palty products were on sale for $8.99.

Directions were pretty simple to understand even for those who can't read Japanese.

Do this on dry hair.
1. Pour tube "1" into bottle "2". Mix well for 15 seconds.
2. Use brush nozzle. Start dyeing. Roots to tip.
3. Wait 20 mins for dye to set
4. Wash out dye. Use shampoo and conditioner. I shampooed my hair twice.
5. After drying your hair, add the oil treatment.

This was the first time I self-dyed my hair. I had Sho help me do the back of my head. It took about 30mins to cover my entire head plus wait another 20mins for the dye to set. It turned out great. I love the color.

Liz Lisa Jacket

Hmm.. If I can remember I bought this summer of 2008 in Tokyo. I usually wear this a lot during the summer. I like how this matches with all the other Liz Lisa items I have. I forgot to a picture of the buttons and lace. The smallest things are so detailed. That's what I like about Liz Lisa.

Sanrio at Yogurtland

Starting today July 21st. Sanrio collaborated with Yogurtland. I went to the store around 8pm and boy was that place packed. That place is normally packed but now all the crazy sanrio freaks like me are there. I wanna collect the different character spoons. I wanted Hello Kitty but they were sold out so I got Chococat instead.

Unicorn Necklace

I bought this necklace from a vendor at Anime Expo called Sugar Clay Cafe. SCC is known for their polymer trinkets & charms. All her items are scented with various sweet candy smells. At the time of purchase, the necklace had a scent of cotton candy but now the smell is gone. I don't remember the price but it was cheaper at the expo then her online store.

Hawaiian Hello Kitty

It's so hot right now in cali. It's like 9pm and I'm still sweating as I'm typing this. I cant stand this heat!!

I bought this years ago when I went to Hawaii. Just felt like posting this since it's summer.

Summer is a bummer

I'm excited for summer like shaved ice but there's one thing I hate the most. BIKINI. I wanna wear cute bikini's but I'm so self-conscious about my body that I avoid the pool or beach at all cost. I guess a girl is never satisfied with her body. *sigh*

Note: If you are a girl and love your body. You deserve mad props and a pat on the back.

88 Tees Towel

My friend Sayuri gave this to me as a souvenir from her trip to Hawaii. She went a while ago but I just wanted to post this to match with the event on PG. She said it's popular among Japanese people. I remember after she told me about this brand. I saw it in one of my japanese magazines.

88 tees is a brand in Hawaii that sells vintage clothing. They are pretty pricy. 

Harry Potter Glasses

Sho and I went to see the last Harry Potter movie on opening night. Sho wanted to see the movie in 3D to get the HP glasses. It was $15.50 per person. Ouch. At my college I could get tickets for 3D for $11. Other than that, I really enjoyed the movie.

Coach Sandal Keychain

Today, I was cleaning my entertainment center. Buried deep inside, I found a small macy's bag with two keychains from Coach inside. I'm wondering if someone gave this to me as a present cause I honestly don't remember buying this. Oh well. Thanks.

Rilakkuma Hairclip

I bought a bunch of accessories from vendors at Anime Expo. This hair clip is from a vendor called Dearie-Love. Unfortunately, the maker sells her creations at live, in person shows. Her website has details on which events she will be attending in the future.

It can be used for a pin or hair clip

La Source Gommage Exfoliant

A couple weeks ago, I went to the Crabtree & Evelyn store to buy some skincare products. Their skincare products are a bit pricey compared to Bath & Body Works but I feel they work better for my skin. I bought the Gommage Exfoliant. It's infused with peppermint, conditioning emollient oils, and fine pumice. They recommend using it on your knees and elbows but I use it on my arms and legs. The smell feels like I'm bathing in the ocean.
Price: $18.00

The Ham Ba Ga Show

I attended Qpop's opening event of The Ham Ba Ga Show. I carpooled with Sho and Kevin and we got there around 7:30pm. The store displayed work from over 30 different artists featuring hamburgers. Quite interesting. There was a live dj and staff serving food and drinks (free alcohol). They got a new shipment of Swimmer and Sex Pot items which I was tempted to buy but I came there for the hamburger items. Sho and Kevin bought limited edition t-shirts designed by Junko Mizuno and I bought a hamburger hairpin.

I wish I could have taken more pictures but it was hard to move around with so many people inside.

The worker's hamburger hairpiece was so cute!

Hamburger Hairpin
This hairpin was expensive cause it was handmade. I feel like it's going to break if I'm not careful with it.
Price: $16.00

I'm about ready to eat this.

Hatsune Miku Phone Strap

It's been 5 days since Anime Expo ended. I kinda miss it. I'm still in recovery mode. I've been sleeping long hours into the day.

This year Hatsune Miku was the main theme. From merchandise, cars, posters, models, and cosplayers. Everywhere was Hatsune Miku! I got sucked in the madness and bought a phone strap. No, I didn't go to the concert cause Sho didn't want to.
