Beauty & taiyaki love

Totoro shelf collection
I'm finding it pretty hard to believe that not so long ago, I was in HK. Now that I'm back at work, it feels like I never ever left the UK at all. While I narrow down the pics for my insta-diary (I can't lie, I'm wondering how on earth to pick just a few faves) here are some awesome little things that I purchased in HK. I did buy some clothes which will appear here over the next few posts, splashed out on yet another bag which I shared here but I also bought some beauty essentials!
Japanese make up essentials
R-L (anti clockwise) Clean & Clear oil control film, 3CE Lipstick in Violeta, Majolica Majorca Lash Expanda Edge Meister Mascara, K-Palette 24H waterproof eyeliner, Etude House Play eye pencil in Shimmer, Sofina Primavista Ange Moisturising base, 2CE Super Fine eyeliner, Fairy Drops Platinum Mascara Film Type, Kiss Me Heroine Make Mascara and Missha The Style Art Designing Sebum Cut Powder. 
Taiyaki Muji Bag Candies
Oh not to mention the cutest bag purchase ever. It's by Candies Gifts which is stocked at the lovely Elizabeth Lau's shop, The Refinery at PMQ in Hong Kong. I remember discussing her new shop over ice cream in HK a few years ago so it's awesome to finally see the store! It really is the coolest space and stocked with some awesome British designers including her own line of course! I couldn't resist this Taiyaki shaped bag which I spied hanging in the shop. There is something about Taiyaki that I just can't help but love, they just remind me of watching anime as a kid and I knew I had to take a photo of my Muji Taiyaki cake next to the bag....


  1. You bought some cute things!! I've always wanted to go to HK, think I would have to take an empty suitcase so I could bring all my shopping home!! Love the Toroto in the first pic :)
    Would love to hear more about your trip :)

  6. Oh, I'm obsessed with those oil blotting sheets. I always have to carry a ton around with me everywhere, haha. They're seriously such a life saver during the summer!

  7. Omg that bag is so freaking cute! But also makes me hungry at the same time :P

  8. That bag is so cool! All those beauty products look gorgeous, I'm a sucker for glamorous packaging. If I ever go to HK (and one day I will!) etude house will be one of my first stops. I love the cute little totoro at the top as well!

  9. The bag is really cute! I really need to get some of those oil control films, I hope they sell them in the UK.The body shop used to do something similar.

  10. The fish bag is soo cute. I wouldn't be able to resist it either.
