Welcome to Mandai Shoten

Last weekend a friend invited Alex and I out to visit Mandai Shoten.
Mandai Shoten is what I like to call a nerd's shop. It's fantastic! It has everything from used video games and mangas to air guns and fishing rods. I couldn't get over the selection and variety of things available.
You can even bring in your old games and they'll buy them, I hear they'll buy pretty much anything. :)

Now for the pictures of my 'big' adventure:


So cute! If it wasn't $40 and I didn't already have a great toaster, I might have considered it.








I believe theres are strategy guides. Please correct me if I'm wrong.

Happy Halloween!

Review: Canmake Mascara remover

Before I get into this review I would just like to add that I've never used a mascara-only remover so I'm not sure how this compares to other removers.
Canmake is a really affordable and cute drugstore makeup brand. They have blushes, mascaras, nail polishes and more. I love looking at their blushes but can guarantee they will not show up on my skin tone, so I stick with their mascaras and nail polishes instead.

About the remover:
Easily takes off hard-to-remove waterproof mascara!
Enables you to remove mascara without overly rubbing your eyes ♥
It's a remover that's kind to your lashes
How to use:
(1) Apply the product liberally all over your lashes, from the roots to the tips.
(2) Leave it to soak in for 30 seconds to a minute, then fold a cotton pad over your lashes and gently wipe off with a stroking motion.
(3) Afterwards, use a tissue to wipe off any mascara adhering to the coil and ensure that it is clean before putting it away.




Since 30 seconds seems far to long for me, I usually leave it on for about 10 seconds and then wipe off. I like the fact that I don't have to rub my eyes continuously to get the mascara off. The applicator is designed really well, which makes for a fast and easy removal. Plus the packaging is super cute, am I right?

Price: 600yen
Final thoughts: It's a great product for very little money. It does what it claims to do. How can you argue with that?
Would I buy again? Yes!

Tokyo Trip - Shin-Ōkubo

Last month Alex and I took a mini trip up to Tokyo to visit some friends I haven't seen in a while.
We ended up staying at a Toyoko Inn in near Shinjuku station in the Shinokubo area. Surrounding our hotel was Koreatown! I absolutely loved it. There was k-pop, kimchi and skincare products everywhere. The music was catchy, the food was fantastic and I returned feeling satisfied with my 5lb bag of face masks.
Here are some photos from our trip, enjoy:












The best part of the trip was discovering two very amazing videos. One of which some of you might already be familiar with.

 


Thanks for reading :)
