25/08/12 J-pop Summit Festival Day 1

12:45:00 AM 16 Comments A+ a-

Hey guys!

Thank-you so much for all your birthday wishes, I had a great birthday! ^_^ I'll blog about it a bit later, since I want to get all my San Francisco posts done!

Today I'm going to blog about day 1 at the San Francisco J-pop Summit Festival! For those of you who didn't know, Liz Lisa flew me to the United States to work in the Liz Lisa Pop-up store. They found me through my blog/youtube so I feel really lucky!

Look of the day~
Aino-san did my hair for me!


We then went to the New People store in JapanTown to set up~

Had breakfast in the cafeteria first




Her name is "Aino" but they wrote "I-know" instead? haha.

We then headed up to the Liz Lisa pop-store and did last minute preparations

Aino-san fixing up my hair for me

Taking photos before the store opened, lol.



The other girls getting ready



I was working with Aino and Hiroko, they're both Liz Lisa staff from Japan!


Group photos~



I didn't have any troubles working at the Liz Lisa store, in Australia I work in retail at a clothing store so I was doing pretty much the same thing I do in Australia, except with Liz Lisa clothes haha. All the customers were really lovely! Almost everyone I talked to commented on my Australian accent hahah.

I also got to meet some of my subscribers that came along to say hi to me! Unfortunately I couldn't get photos with all of you guys :( But I'm really grateful to everyone who said hi to me!

One of my subscribers who runs Melody Virus gave me one of the items she sells in her store ^_^





I also met a blogger Bouncy Brown!


I was given a break so I was allowed to walk around


And I met up with Wenjin!


I had ramen!

Wenjin and I actually have known eachother for about 6 years! haha. We met on Youtube again last year, so I'm really glad that I finally got to meet her!

I also met Shirley!! I met her on Youtube last year and she's been a great friend! I didn't get to hang out with them for long because I was working, but I was so happy to be able to finally meet them in person!

Shirley, Wenjin and I!

I was just soooo tired that day so I didn't take any photos during dinner. I only got 2 hours sleep the night before because I was so jetlagged :( And I also didn't get any sleep on the plane either.. The time difference was 16hours I think? so it was quite crazy T_T

Anyway, I'm going to finish off with a photo I took on that night of the City Hall.


I know I said I will try blog more often, but things have just gotten so busy for me. Work and uni have been really busy lately... but I will try my best!

I really hope they do something like this in Europe some time. Do you know if there will be more added to the Autumn/Winter line? I'm in Japan in December and I can only see a few things I want to buy.
You look adorable as usual. I love the girl with the two side plaits, her hair is gorgeous! Serious hair envy going on.

oh i love the items...! did you have a lot of sales? if i had known earlier, i probs would have swapped my baltimore trip for this (did i say that already? lol) anyway, if liz lisa does another pop up in the US, i hope to hear about it, and i WILL take a plane flight, if needed; imo it's worth it. glad you got to meet so many people though. and i think your look is really sweet, the lip color is quite flattering. did i mention i just love the dress? hiroko is super cute... o///o and aino did an awesome job with her hair. truth be told, it took me a few seconds before i figured out i-know XD. happy belated kim :)


ps, i wish they were hiring for clothing retail here; i've applied for several places, but alas, no dice D:

There definitely will be more items added to the Winter line! Not sure about the Autumn line though ^^;; I think the new Winter line should be out around November?

The first day had a lot of sales, the second day not as much but it did quite well ^^


Getting a job in retail is really hard where I live too since it's really competitive :( I guess I'm really lucky to be able to get the job ><
