The year is coming to its end.
And we also had to say good bye to Kent a few weeks ago.
It's unbelievable. I grew up to this band and now they are gone.
The music will always stay but it's hard to believe we will not hear anything new.
I never got to see them live but I used to listen a lot to them...
To be honest I have passed it but never bought it, then a friend of mine said it was good and I also found some really good reviews.
The brand is called エクセルメイク / Excel Make.
They have all kinds of make up however this eyebrow mascara was the one I heard about and since I have way too much make-up at home already I only tried this.
I tried it in store, it was very smooth and was easy to apply.
As I decided to colour my hair blonde, I needed a light coloured one. I went for BM02.
It's still in its package as I need to finish the one from Canmake first. This one cost almost 3 times as much as Canmake's one. but you can really feel the difference. So yes, if you want a really nice one and do not care about price, then yes...BUY this one!!
I had to struggle a bit to get it though, I think it took me 4 drug stores and 2 department stores before I found it. Either they did not have it at all or the colour I wanted was sold out!
I was told about this little fella, it has won serveral awards and is being super popular in Japan.
It's a cream blush and it's super cute and simple to apply.
It's also very cheap! It comes in many different colours, total 8 ones.
It can be used for every day make up for party. I bought it in two different colours.
I have only used one of them but I tried them all in store and got two different.
I do not use blush too often but it's always fun to have a few.
This one is very affordable making it possible to have several!!
I donno why I came across this, I never really liked Jessica..haha
But I guess it's the news feeds on various SNS accounts.
The reason why I share it is various cuts of scenery in the video.
I'm not a fan on her outfits and her face is way too pale!
Some cuts also reminds me of TaeYeon..haha
But I like her hair colour ;)
It is kinda hard to find them online, but I found one of the pairs I bought. I bought both at Flag J in Shibuya109. Flag J has been one of my fave shoe shops since forever, I always buy shoes there. Maybe not the cheapest, but I like them design and fitting. They rarely hurt my feet, Korean shoes hurt, sometimes Japanese too but this brand I think is good. I bought these in LL size, a bit big but I put an insole in them. I hate being in the middle of shoe sizes, I want a X,5 size...haha
Sadly at these stores the size is not really working well, althoough it says it should be between certain sizes, sometime you need to try a lot!
I got these in black! I have longer boots that looks similar..haha
I guess I like this style ^^
Name: Back lace-up casual short boots Price: ¥ 8,532 Item Description:Casual short boots accented with back lace-up design. The heavy heel of the stack also has stability and outstanding ease of walking. It is also recommended items for people who are not good at heels. Item Number: ST 318 Material: Leather suede Website: Shibuya109 online shop (Japanese)
I found out about this foundation through Kim Dao's Youtube feed before I went to Japan.
I tried it in store and it looked good on me so I thought I'd give it a try.
I really liked to apply it to my skin, it was smooth and very light but it had a great cover. So in the end I bought a stock of it.
I'm very happy I found this foundation, for the last couple of years I have only used Korean make up brands, but lately I feel too bright and white.
Although Japanese are light too, I could find some colours that are less bright. And as I needed to get myself some new products, and not being able to go to Korea, I used Google quite a lot before I went to Japan last month.
A success ^^ I ended up buying a lot of new items!
This item comes in 4 different colours, I bought the one called 20.
It's a very small bottle so it's easy to have in the handbag / travelling etc. Also, you don't need a lot to cover yourself, so it'll last for quite some time. Not the cheapest of brands but not too expensive either. I found it also at Donki, so I got one bottle a bit cheaper, you can find it at most drugstores in Japan, but not all. It cost 1500 yen plus tax. At Donki I think I paid 1300 yen plus tax.
Intergrate is a brand by Shiseido, I have never seen it outside Japan.
I'd say this is their label for the younger generation. Their slogan says
素肌を引き上げるベースメーク、トリックで魅せるカラーアイテム、印象を操るフレームアイテムの組み合わせで、一人ひとりの武器となるような”大人のかわいらしさ”をつくります。 In English: Slogan "Let's be a nice girl ♡".
We will make "adult loveliness" that will be a weapon for each person by a combination of a base make-up that pulls up bare skin, a color item that attracts tricks and a frame item that manipulates impressions.
We found a new müsli, it's the most delicious I have tried so far, except for those you can make yourself.
It's from the brand called Risenta and it contains a lot of things I love, buckwheat flakes, various seeds, and blueberries!!
If you come to Sweden, I recommend you to get this!!
Ingredients: Chiagranola 28% (wheat flour, inulin, oatmeal, chia seed 10% * (Salvia hispanica), water, sunflower oil, salt), melon seeds, sunflower seeds, buckwheat flakes (corn, buckwheat, oat fiber, salt), pumpkin seeds, spelled puffs (gluten), freeze-dried blueberry 2.5% *, which represents 3% of the contents of the bag

I did some work to my hair in Japan. I bleached and dyed my hair a lot.
So I was recommended to get some treatment. I asked a friend of mine who I know knows all of these things. She recommended this one. The brand is called Loretta and it came on 2nd place as cosme's "Best Hair Care" in 2015.
So far so good, I like the smell and how you apply it, it's so smooth and makes the hair feel so good.
It's a shame, I don't want to reach the day I have used it all. I cannot find it here in Sweden!
I have to share the other song by Big Bang.
It has been quite some time since we got a full album.
However I wished for more, half of the songs have already been released.
Oh well.. back to this one, I like the sound of it, I love listening to this as I go to work..haha
Don't ask me why I mean it's not a "Good morning song".
I have to admit, our youngest, Daesung got cuter..haha
Talking about languages, it was the same but somewhere it changed.
For me this reminds me a bit when Finnish people speak Finnish-Swedish.
The two Koreas has changed a lot over the years.
This already came out last year, I had no idea but I believe this is a big help for the N.Koreans who end up in S.Korea!
I have bought a lot at Ingni before and love it. It was on sale so it made it even better ^^
However I had to go back less than 24 h later, the seamline broke, don't ask why, I couldn't see it and the store was like.. we are so sorry. ^^ The whole shoulder was off, very straight but I couldn't see why it happened, also it's not like I had been caught somewhere and I have never seen anything like it. Well well.. I got a new one and it has been no issue.
I like that it's simple. But I wear black thicker leggings, I used simple stockings but it looked quite short on me, so leggings is the way to go!
It's really smooth and comes with a "muffler" which you can choose to wear or not. Very practical, it looks like 2-in-1. I'm very happy with my purchase. I like the fitting, I thought it'd look big on me due to strips on the side, but it looks really nice so I'm very pleased ^^
Here is the second item I bought after arriving to Japan.
As said many times before Ingni is one of my fave stores and this item looked so cozy and it came at a great price, I had to have it. I had trouble to choose the colour though. I liked both pink and gray. But in the end I chose gray..surprise?! ^^
This works both at work and home, so I'm pleased!!!
This is long too which is great to have on now, I hate winter season and I always want to cover myself up as much as possible.
It has passed what now.. 9 years? since we heard this song for the first time, to me this song is still as good as it was when it came out. For some reason I cannot get tired of it.
I think I watched too much of Hana Yori Dango, still there is a part of me that wants to re-watch it although I know the whole series by heart!!
I think I have mentioned this place many times before.
If you are a girl and like "cheap" accessories, this is the place to visit in Tokyo. It is called Paris Kids and is located in the heart of Harajuku. It's located a few min away from Harajuku station, they have a variety of goods - earrings, necklaces, piercings, head bands etc.
The price starts at 318 yen and the more you buy sometimes you can get discounts.
I always buy a lot of crap there, I say crap because I buy them and put them into my drawer when I come home. I have too many things, still buy more but don't have time to use them. Such a waste I know but I want them when I'm there...lol
Also, if there is a JE concert they always have something fun for the concert to use! And as it's cheap I buy.
Also if you are into Japanese School Uniforms, you can buy ties and bows. :)
