Anyway, here is a Loot-of-the-Day post. I always love to take photos of the stuff I bought. Some of the stuff can be pretty random and unimportant, but this is a good way for me to track my spending pattern here in Japan.
Magazines from Tsutaya, a book and CD store near my dorm.
I bought Spring, Steady, Ryu Ryu, Nicola (yes I am obsessed with Japanese teen mags) and a Doraemon book. The Doraemon book is filled with the secrets of the characters, including their personal info and pet peeves! A good buy for Dora fans like me!
Ichikami Shampoo and Conditioner Set.
Oooh! I have to write about this! This set is 期間限定 (Kikan Gentei - only available for a limited period), and it costs only 798yen! That is SGD13 for these 2 big 550ml bottles! Ichikami products contain Japanese plants and flowers essence such as sakura extract and tsubaki extract, which nourishes the hair. It smells so good and I luuurrvvee the packaging!
Beautylabo hair treatment, detergent, and Dove shower foam with berries and limes extract.
I buy all my toiletries from a Matsumoto Kiyoshi store in the neighbourhood and I have already signed up for its points card!
Fancy-schmancy toilet paper!
I was dying to try this when I first saw it a few days ago. It's so pretty and soft and 3 ply! THREE! The crappy ones at the dorm and most public loos are only 1 ply and tear easily. And this one smells of roses! My butt will smell like roses! Ha!
And my star buy of the day - Marie Cotton Pads at 100yen!
I like Marie and I could keep the box after the cotton pads are used up. I thought the cotton pads were just pink and oh-ok-that's-cute-but-whatever, however......
The cotton pads are HEART-SHAPED!
Omgomgomg how cute is that?!?!?!
This definitely appeals to the vain simpleton that I am!
