Today Dave and I drove to Mitsuwa to pick up some beauty products for me and also to nosh on udon noodles! Prior to us leaving, I had to undo all of the pockets on his new coat– his Christmas gift from yours truly . BTW, thanks for all the gift suggestions guys!!! As it turned out, Dave had just ruined his jacket prior to visiting me (leaned on wet paint), so I ended up purchasing something that he desperately needed.
My stint at the Duke costume shop paid off!
Tricky tricky pockets! I had to whip out the seam ripper!
Note: Why do so many new coats have the back slit sewn together and the pockets sewn shut? It was so annoying to cut them open!
Anyways, when Dave and I finally arrived to Mitsuwa, we looked around at all the Japanese snacks. Of course, I haddd to take pictures of the Hello Kitty ones!
So adorable! (Probably tastes like crap though )
After I purchased my “necessities” (I’ll show you later ), we sat down to eat!
I ordered udon noodles with sesame sauce while Dave ordered udon noodles with fried tofu skin.
The sesame noodles were heavenly!
Dave’s was good too !
The fried tofu skin
We also ate taiyaki! Taiyaki is basically a fish shaped pastry with a sweet red bean filling.
We made our fishes kiss .
We waited sooo looong for these to be made!
But it was worth it!
When we finally made our way home, I was pooped! Here’s what I purchased:
Face wash, toner and face lotion!
I love Sana products because they are very gentle, yet effective. The problem is that they are hard to find unless you live near a Japanese supermarket (you can find them online but I prefer buying beauty products in person). In addition, since I know ZERO Japanese, I had to do a lot of research about the products online before purchasing AND it still took a lot of trial and error to find the right combo for my skin.
Do you use any foreign beauty products? What brands/ products would you recommend?
