Japan Purchases!

It's really hard not to buy everything here, as you can probably imagine.  So having my paycheck come 2 months after beginning work makes things infinitely more difficult.  But I did have to buy a lot of things because I moved to this (mostly) empty apartment with only 2 suitcases of my belongings.  I'm not going to post about every single kitchen utensil I bought though, so no worries.  These are just the highlights.

♡ Pink Desk 

My apartment is starting to look soooo cute!

Most people in my training group got apartments with chairs and a desk.  I however, was not one of the lucky ones.  So, like any normal person would do, I used this as an opportunity to buy more cute things.  Behold, the pink and cute Ikea-style build it yourself desk (approx 3,600 yen) from Amazon jp that I am going to cry about having to leave behind once I find out how much it will cost to ship it home (featuring one of my 700 yen chairs and my 300 yen Rilakkuma rug).

♡ Heart Chairs 

These chairs I bought from Amazon Japan are so cute but rather tiny.   I shouldn't have been so surprised because they were only 700 yen.

♡ My Melody Mug 

It's some kind of custom to bring a mug with you when you work at a school so that you can partake in the communal coffee and green tea so I bought this cute My Melody one from Harajuku Kiddyland 
(~600 yen).

♡ Liz Lisa Dress 

Liz Lisa brand is very cute but also expensive.  But I have found some amazing items at a seriously low price in the resale shop in the mall in my city!  This dress makes me feel like a doll~

♡ Liz Lisa Pants 

Look how cute these pants are!  They were only 1,500 yen!! 

I love the lace details and the scalloped edging and...

...especially the bow accents on the back pockets!

♡ Bunny Umbrella 

It rains a lot here so I bought this amazing umbrella at Don Quixote (best store) for ~800 yen.  It doesn't really look like an umbrella though, does it?

The umbrella is cleverly disguised as a bunny~

I love how cute it looks when I keep it on my backpack. 

I have bought some cosmetic items here but I'm thinking that might be a post of its own eventually.

That's all for this post.  As always, please comment or write to me with any questions you may have!  Thanks for reading!
