Hey guys! Finally we're up to the Tokyo Japan posts! I'm in the middle of editing tours of my favourite shopping places in Tokyo so hopefully they'll be uploaded soon! My next Japan video will be up sometime next week, it will be about my day in Kyoto!

Anyway, on this day I was excited because I LOVE shopping in Tokyo. Janelle and I decided to dress up more than usual on this day, since in Tokyo everyone dresses up nicely everyday!



I ran out of bandaids for my burnt neck :( So Janelle gave me a Snoopy bandaid LOL.


Morning coffee!

I was annoyed because Tokyo is more expensive than Osaka :(

Walking towards Ikebukuro station~



Waiting for the train at Ikebukuro



Arrived at Harajuku! One of my favourite shopping places in Tokyo!




Huge Daiso store


This is my favourite accessory shop in Japan. It's called "Paris Kids", everything inside is only 315yen, that's about $4!








Bought so much from there!

CHEAP SHOES!

500 yen each! (Around $7), or you can get 3 pairs for 1000yen! (Around $13). Didn't get any though since I didn't really like them :x

Janelle trying on shoes haha


Selca in the mirror haha

Liz Lisa Harajuku Store!!





Upstairs is the Liz Lisa Chambre a Coucher (the Liz Lisa brand selling bedroom stuff, homewear etc) and Jugetta (The brand under Liz Lisa that is more aimed towards Otona Gyaru (adults).



Me vlogging~ Will get the Tokyo videos up soon!


We then walked to Shibuya because we didn't want to take the train (trains can be pretty pricey in Japan :(). Actually, it only costs like $2 to get to Shibuya from Harajuku, but we were running out of money so were trying to save as much as possible :P

Saw a huge pair of EMU boots haha


WC Shibuya Store~ Didn't go inside though



Burger King for lunch! In Australia it's called "Hungry Jacks"


Arrived in Shibuya! Me next to Hachiko!


Hachiko on the walls of Shibuya JR Station

First stop! Shibuya109!



After Shibuya109, we then went all the way back to Ikebukuro! Went to another favourite shopping place, Sunshine City!



Saw some weird things...


Janelle and I decided to go take Purikura together!






For dinner we went to a little ramen restaurant in Ikebukuro~


I had the original ramen



Janelle had the kimchi one


It was only our "first" day in Tokyo and we already shopped so much LOL. At that point I remember we were both so low on money so we had to start being super stingy afterwards and saving as much money as we can hahaha. Anyway, I've been super busy with work and uni lately.. so I'm not sure how much I can update my blog because exams are also coming up for me :( I will try my best to update once every second day though!

Hey guys!

When I was in San Francisco working in the Liz Lisa store, I was given special permission to take photos beforehand of everything set up! (Usually you're not allowed to take photos in Liz Lisa stores). Sorry for the heavy watermarking.. since I really don't want these photos posted anywhere else but on my blog. I tried taking photos of all the Liz Lisa cosmetics and the 2012 Autumn Collection to show you guys!

Here is a video I uploaded a few days ago of the Liz Lisa Tour in San Francisco!



Sorry for the shakeyness of the video.. I stupidly bought a huge lens to San Francisco and it was REALLY heavy :(

When I go to Japan, I now have permission to film in the Liz Lisa stores so I will be doing tours of the real stores in Japan!

Some high quality photos I took of the Liz Lisa merchandise!

Liz Lisa Cosmetics Collection





Liz Lisa Blushes





Gorgeous packaging!

Liz Lisa Eyeshadows





Liz Lisa Lipgloss

Liz Lisa Lotion
All the Liz Lisa cream products smell like flowers




This gives off a floral scent but not sure what it actually is lol



Liz Lisa Room Scent
I have one of these that one of the Liz Lisa staf gave me, it is one of the room sprays and gives off a floral scent, the same scent that you smell when you enter Liz Lisa stores in Japan



This also gives off a floral scent but not sure what it's called


Liz Lisa Candle


And now the Liz Lisa 2012 Autumn Collection~
































That's all for now, hope you guys like the photos!
