Stopped by the Kobe store since they were in the middle of a sale.  As always, found cute Cat’s Tsumori Chisato stuff, but it wasn’t included in the sale.  But I did find this fun summer-y clutch.  It also came in blue and yellow.  I dislike yellow and I own a lot of blue already, so I went with this crazy orange one.

The clock is ticking on easily acquirable Shu Uemura for Ashley.  Picked up these fun lashes I’d been eye-ing for a long time now and an eyeshadow from the Kobe Daimaru.  Also got a foundation sample.  What will I do when I get home?  Browsing online for makeup is not as fun as playing at the counter.

I’m sad that Shu Uemura no longer has counters in the US, but in Japan they’re abundant.  Their holiday collection, abracadabra fantasy, is a collaboration with artist Aya Takano.  Aya Takano is a superflat artist, part of Takashi Murakami’s collective, Kaikai Kiki.  Really, I wanted to buy it all, but settled on the sparkly purple paint crayon eyeliner.

Picked up some jewelry in a shop called Recipe in the Kobe Daimaru.  Daimaru is like Japan Bloomingdales.  The jewelry wrapped is for my host sisters in Chiba, a heart and bow necklace respectively.  Of course I ended up buying something for myself too.  This shop also had an amazing assortment of Christmas cards (a bit hard to find good ones that aren’t super expensive in Japan because most people write New Years’ cards).
