Mitsuwa Mini Haul & Random


Mitsuwa Mini Haul
I stopped by Mitsuwa today since I was in the area buying kibble for my dog. Picked up a new eyelash curler (Koji Eyelash Curler #70) since my current Koji is on its last rubber pad, a mascara guard because I've been wanting to try one for a while now, a pack of peach Chelsea candy, and a set of PA eyelashes.

My first thought was how hairy these eyelashes looked to me. Then I pictured this image I saw a while back when I was reading up on Latisse:
Long-Eyelash
Lolol. Props to Asobitsuchiya for this creative photo.

I immediately started chuckling to myself and decided to buy them. I don't wear fake eyelashes but these were just so darn silly, I had to get them. Perhaps they'll be a future giveaway item.

Koji Eyelash Curler #70
I decided to purchase Koji Eyelash Curler #70 over the #72, which I currently own, because the compactness doesn't seem to prove that much of a difference for me.

Kai Mascara Guard
A review of the Kai Mascara Guard will be coming within the next few days. I'm so excited to try it out! I hope it works well. I've just been using scraps of paper and tissue paper to protect my eyeshadow.

Chelsea Hard Candy
The Chelsea hard candy is super tasty! Too bad it's.. a hard candy. I don't know why I was expecting a soft candy. I usually prefer chewy, soft candies over hard candies unless they're those fizzy soda Japanese candies. Those are so good! Haha.

Chelsea Hard Candy
Each is individually wrapped in a beautifully designed wrapper.

What could one do with these pretty wrappers? I don't want to just toss them. Perhaps decoupage?

Speaking of snacks/food...
Kimchi Quesadilla
I had my 2nd kimchi quesadilla the other day. ;___; SOOOO GOOD... I need to learn how to make this.


I've recently been introduced to some very delicious vegetarian restaurants:
vegetarian dish 01
The tofu with the red sauce on the right is tomato tofu. The tomato sauce/broth that it sat in was sooooooooooooo good. Goodness. I really do love food.
vegetarian dish 02This is the vegetarian take on a Vietnamese soup called "Bun Bo Hue." The broth wasn't as flavorful as I'd like but the imitation meat was quite tasty!

shaved ice
A nice serving of shaved ice is perfect for these summer days. I like mine with bits of lychee in it. :)

What do you like to have on top of your shaved ice? Or frozen yogurt (since that seems to be fairly popular right now)?

  1. Drool! I love bun bo hue and have never tried the vegetarian version.

    You must live in CA! I'm quite envious of the mitsuwa stores there. I'm going there at the end of this month and just put that mascara guard on my shopping list. I don't use anything now, not even your nifty paper trick, and usually ruin my eyelids while applying mascara.
