Japan, Korea, Taiwan, China Shopping Buys

shanghai shopping haul

Hello World~

I’m back from my trip to Asia, and now it’s been quite a long time since I’ve written a blog post. Part of me feels bad for not blogging, and another part of me is sort of like F*ck it.

Since I’ve returned to California, I have taken it up upon my self to take better care of my body. Currently, I do a daily 11+ step skin care routine day and night, started taking weekly yoga classes, eating more meals, and giving myself free time after work to relax through reading or gaming. I must say, it’s nice to put some effort in and pamper yourself. I think I’ve been neglecting my body for almost my entire life.

Enough about my life. If you’re reading this post, you probably want to see the goods! Aimmairite?!

Overall, I feel like I came back with a pretty good haul of items from Asia. I would have liked to buy more, but I only had a small carry on luggage between the four countries and didn’t want to lug so much stuff around. It all worked out though, because I was more conscious about my purchases.

Anyways, you’ll end up seeing a few reviews on some of the items I bought if I’m feeling up to it. Of course, if there’s anything in particular that you are interested in, let me know in the comments!

Hope everyone is having a great November~ We’re coming close to the end of the year, and quickly!

  1. Ooh so many nice things! I’d like to see some outfits and makeup looks 😀
    Haha I’m the same, it’s been a few months since I came back from HK and blogging about it seems too late now lol eeeehhhhhh..

    1. haha, it’s been maybe 2-3 weeks since i’ve been back from my vacation! i feel so lazy to blog nowadays. but at the same time, when i don’t blog at all, i feel sort of empty. oh the dilemma~ but good idea! if i get enough motivation, i’ll try to post an outfit or makeup look ;D

  2. Welcome back!! Hope you had an awesome time away 🙂
    Glad to hear you are spending so much time looking after YOU, I need to take a leaf out of your book…
    You got an awesome haul of things, especially for not having alot of room to pack it! Love the tartan shirt!


    1. hey danielle! yea, i’m surprised by how much stuff i actually came back with considering that i only had a carry on. i guess most of the items are small so it all works out. i had to be very selective on clothing items. and yes, you should spend more time on yourself too!! i think most of us often forget to take better care of ourselves~

  3. oh-my-god SO LUCKY GIRL! A lot of cute and pretty things! *-*

    1. aww thank you!! loll i tried my best to splurge 😀

  4. You actually got quite a lot of stuff! xD The korean beauty makeup haul omg hahaha sooo many little packages – and all so pretty too!!

    1. yea i got lots of little stuff from korea. at one point, i had no clue what to get and thought, screw it, just grab things that look interesting and buy it! haha, i don’t typically follow korean products, so it was hard for me to shop for them. i should have done research. oh and i regret not buying majolica majorca when i was in japan, totally forgot to! 🙁

  5. My daughter loves the Japan haul and the Totoro socks -to cute 🙂 a lot of goodies! She dreams of going to Japan 🙂

    1. you should totally take her some day! it was really a lot of fun. i’ll have to post about my trip when i get the chance, hopefully sometime soon 🙂

  6. Super jealous of your purchases! That d.i.a jacket. *_* I would SO not have survived with just a carryon so I’m impressed.

    Glad you’re back! We gotta go grab lunch again soon! 😀

    1. Yesss~ lets grab lunch soon! I’m not in the office this week though. btw, the dia jacket is reversible!! 😀
