JAPANFUNBOX - a box full of fun and crazy Japanese snacks!

Konnichiwa!

Today I would like to show you a super fun subscription box, full of quirky 
and tasty Japanese snacks, called.....JAPANFUNBOX
Even Rocky couldn't resist and tried to steal my snacks. I don't blame him!
The items in this box are truly fun and precious because you can't find them abroad! I was surprised by how many snacks were in this box:
1.) Ninjin Snack. These are sweet, puffed rice grains and the come in this adorable package that looks like a carrot!!

2.) 3 KitKats. One is dark chocolate, the other one is milk chocolate and the third one is Green Tea flavored (my favorite!!)

3.) Pocky (Blond Chocolat flavor). First time I ever tried these are they are scrumptious. I didn't find them sweet but they're so good!
4.) Koikeya Pride Potato. These are consommΓ© (stock/broth) flavored chips....isn't that so funny? What's crazy is that they actually do taste like meat broth. I LOVE THESE!

5.) Pureral (orange flavored gummy candies). Soooo refreshing and it's like eating a real orange!
6.) Orion's cocoa cigarettes. These are adorable! These have been around since the 1950s πŸ’– They taste very sugary and minty.

7.) Disney Furuta Chocolate Egg. This reminds me of Kinder's chocolate eggs. So needless to say...delicious! I got a little toy inside...check out my video if you want to see what it was :)

8.) Chocoball Caramel. These little chocolate balls are filled with chewy caramel. YUM YUM YUM.

9.) Setsubun (Dry Roasted Soybeans). This a traditional Japanese snack that will ward off evil!

10.) Puchi Puchi Uranai Ramune Candy. Ramune is a Japanese soft drink/soda and these candies taste like it!

11.) Thomas the Tank Engine Candy. These are grape flavored, chewy candy. I am addicted to these!
  12.) Ginza Rusk. These are crispy snacks coated in milk chocolate and filled with white chocolate. Really good!

13.) Tohato Chocobi. These are little puffed, star-shaped corn snacks that taste so chocolatey. They remind me of cereal. I ate the whole bag in one go!
14.) Sour Paper (Peach Flavor). This strip of candy tastes exactly like a juicy peach. Heavenly!

15.) Kinako Mochi. These are traditional rice crackers. Sweet and savory. I really like these!

16.) Chocolate Wafer including nail decorations! Oh my goodness, these stickers are adorable. πŸ’œ

17.) Mickey Mouse Chocolates (Umbrella shaped). Mickey mouse, adorable, fine chocolate...need I say more?
18.) Sudakosan. The snack below deserves a photo of its own. It's a strip of dried octopus, drenched in vinegar.                                                              πŸ˜ƒπŸ˜ƒπŸ˜ƒ 

There were actually a couple more items in the box, including a peperoncino flavor ramen cup! If you're curious, here is my unboxing and tasting video:

BestHairBuy Extensions

Aloha dolls,

You might recall one of my previous posts where showed you some stylish bob cut wigs from BestHairBuy. The cool thing about this online shop is that they also sell amazing hair extensions. In fact, they are the leading online hair extensions shop, offering hair wigs, extensions, weaves, clip-ins and hair tools and accessories that are not only high quality but also competitively priced. So if you're looking for the best quality hair extensions and best prices (as well as best customer service!), just head over BestHairBuy. 

I already have pretty long hair (if it continues growing at this rate, it's gonna reach my tailbone πŸ˜ƒ) but if I need more volume (or more waves), I know where to go 😊 If you have thin hair, whether because it's hereditary or because of chemical damage, one way to boost your confidence is by using hair extensions. The ones you'll find at BestHairBuy look so realistic (they are real hairs after all!) that nobody would ever guess those hairs aren't yours! Also, sometimes I get fed up of my hair color so what's the quickest way to change your hair color without dying it? Clip-in or tape-in extensions! Whatever your hair color is or whatever color you desire, you'll be happy to see that BestHairBuy offers a variety of hair colors, as well as hair types and lengths. Here are some examples of  BestHairBuy hair extensions that you can find on their website: 

For you blonde bombshells:

LindyBop 'Myrtle' Pink Fruit Print Halterneck Swing Dress

Hello Dolls! 

Summer is finally here and I have the fruitiest dress ever to show you! The best song to describe this dress would have to be Little Richard's "Tutti Frutti" 😍 
This dress (availabe here and it's on sale, so grab it before it's gone, ladies!) is from an amazing store and brand called Lindy Bop, specialized in vintage style and retro inspired clothing. They offer such a tempting selection of dresses, tops, skirts, shoes and accessories that will make you look like a real rockabilly gal or pin up doll! If you're a nostalgic lady, search no more. The dress I'm about to show you actually isn't my first dress from Lindy Bop but it sure is the fruitiest πŸ˜ƒ 
Just look at those pineapples, strawberries, bananas, lemons 
and watermelon wedges....πŸ’ž
The dress is a lovely, dusty pink shade, almost lilac, depending on the lighting.



Isn't this dress so sweet and refreshing? 
The fabric is great quality cotton, perfect for summer and not only is the fruity print adorable, but the unique neckline makes it even more special! I spent the entire day in this dress and felt so comfortable (chose a UK size 10, by the way, following the user-friendly chart on Lindy Bop's site and it fits me perfectly) and I plan on spending many more days in this delightfully fruity dress! 

Ta-ta for now and make sure to eat your fruit, ladies! πŸ’–

BestHairBuy Bob Wigs

Hi dolls,

Summer is just around the corner. Time to flaunt a bit of skin, let your hair down and get sun-kissed (wear your sunscreen, ladies!) ☀ As much as I like cozy sweaters, I was so fed up of dressing up like a polar bear and not being able to wear my pretty summery dresses and I don't know about you, but I play around with my hair much more in the summer! I like to get beach waves, boxer braids and other fun styles like bubble braids which I'm obsessed with now! I wouldn't mind getting shorter hair too, but I suffer from separation anxiety! I'm scared of scissors coming near my long hair 😨

When I was younger, I was never into wigs (except during Halloween πŸ˜†) but I can see now why they have their appeal! When you're having a bad hair day (or a bad face day haha), you can just throw a wig on and literally look like another person! Wigs are great for when you feel like changing hairstyle but don't feel like committing to one. If you're feeling more adventurous, you can wear a wig to change your appearance for a night out, without regretting it the next morning. I bet we all know a thing or two about bad hair cuts πŸ˜„ In fact, wigs also come in handy during those times when you're going for red hair but end up with green hair or when your hairdresser ends up making you look like one of The Beatles 😢 (they're adorable, but I don't think my face suits that kind of hairdo!).

If you're looking for high quality and professional looking wigs to cover any mishaps or if you feel like undergoing a makeover, I think the best place to go is BestHairBuy. You'll find so many different styles, colors and hair types. One style that never goes out of fashion is the bob haircut; Doris Day sported hers in the sixties, Uma Thurman rocked hers in Pulp Fiction 😎 and Emma Stone seems to be quite a fan of bob haircuts too). BestHairBuy offers a wonderful selection of bob wigs here: BestHairBuy bob wigs.


Here are some of my favorites from their website. 
I love the waves in the first wig below!


12 Inch #1B Natural Wavy Short Bob


If you're blonde or you want to go blonde, here's another wavy bob wig: 

#613 Body Wavy Bob Wigs


Speaking of waves, if you're interested in making your hair look fuller and wavier, BestHairBuy also offers a great selection of wavy hair bundles in the BestHairBuy Body Wave selection and BestHairBuy Natural Wave section.  They look so natural and so thick and glossy! 



Back to their wigs....
I've always secretly wanted to try purple hair! How pretty is this wig below?:

Lace Front Purple Bob Wig

'Cause pink is my favorite color πŸ’– Now this wig is for the more daring ladies! 

#1B/Pink Ombre Bob Wigs

Have you ladies ever worn a wig and would you wear one?

ZenPop Sweets Pack from Japan!

Hi cookies!

Are you hungry? If you are, perfect. If you're not, this post will make you hungry πŸ˜…

I showed you guys what was inside my Zenpop Beauty Pack in my previous post but in today's post, I would like to show you what was inside my Zenpop Sweets Pack (April). In case you're not familiar with Zenpop's subscription boxes, do take a look at their inviting website: http://zenpop.jp

They offer different types of boxes full of Japanese products, renewed every month. If you don't want a subscription but you'd still like to try one of their boxes, you can order one whenever you like so no strings attached! But personally, I think once you try a Zenpop pack, you'll be hooked πŸ˜… 

I am a huge fan of Japan and snacks so I devoured everything in my Zenpop pack:
 There were 15 snacks inside the box (sweet as well as salty!)
 1.) EDAMAME CRATZ SALT 
These are delicious pretzel bites/pieces bursting with edamame (soybean) flavor! I like how there are some almonds inside too. This snack goes well with an aperitif (or a glass of beer, as depicted on the bag!) but I find them delicious on their own. No need for any alcohol here!

2.) SHAKE! Fruit Yogurt Gummy
This is something I've never ever tried nor heard of before! You sprinkle the yogurt powder (in a separate bag inside) on the fruity gummy candy and SHAKE the bag! Fun and yummy.
 3.) BISCO CAFE' AU LAIT
I really liked these! The biscuits are nice and crispy and the filling inside is coffee with milk flavor! I was so surprised to read that they contain probiotics (1 million lactic acid bacteria!). Good for your tummy and very yummy! 😊

4.) POKEMON CHEWING CANDY COLA
These are chewy sticks (they literally look like chewing gum sticks!) and they taste exactly like coca cola. Very intense flavor. Delicious!

5.) KARUBI POTATO FRY
Barbebecue beef flavor chips. As advised in the helpful list that came inside the Zenpop pack, I tried breaking them into pieces, into my salad for dinner. First time I had potato chips in my salad and it was SO GOOD! 

6.) TABEKKO ANIMALS SALT
These are potato animal crackers (non-fried) and they're soooo addictive. They're light and crisp and so cute. Each animal in the bag has the type of animal spelled out on it so it's perfect for learning/teaching English! 
 7.) Potato Sticks Piqant Shrimp
These are little potato matchsticks but don't be fooled by their appearance! They are SPICY and so flavorful (sort of like eating spicy shrimp and potatoes). I wasn't sure if the character on the bag was a potato or a bird but I realize it must be a potato because that's what the snack is made out of...a potato, haha. The beak sort of led me astray 😀

8.) UMAI CHOCO CORN PUFFS
These were crunchy yet smooth ('cause they're covered in delicious creamy chocolate). I felt like I was having a real dessert while eating these. πŸ’›

9.) PUCHI -AONORI SENBEI
Small rice crackers with bits of nori (seaweed) inside. These are supposed to taste like the ocean...and they actually do!
 10.) DIY SEA ANIMAL GUMMY
This is a creative DIY kit which I haven't tried yet but I will soon and I'm sure it'll be lotsa fun. The gummy candy will be shaped like dolphins, whales, fish, turtles, octopus..... I like how it says "Colorful Peace" on the package πŸ˜‰

11.) YO - KAI WATCH SALT SNACK
These are light, corn rings that taste like salty....I wasn't sure what at first. I felt they were slightly fish-flavored but later I looked at the ingredients and saw "chicken extract"! Whatever flavor they are, they're scrumptious! The package contains a little sticker with your fortune written on it. I got "some good luck" πŸ˜ƒ
 12.) SAPPORO POTATO BBQ
These are crunchy potato snacks (check out that neat shape!) and they (kinda) taste like barbecue chicken and beef. They were very good!

13.) ASAHI GRANOLA BITES
Round grandola bites full of strawberries, oats, papapya and berries. These weren't very sweet but I actually liked them. Healthy and good!
 14.) and 15.) SHOYU SENBEI AND EXTRA SHOYU (TAMARI) SENBEI

Love love love these. Like I said in my unboxing video, "this is what Japan tastes like". Senbei are the most traditional Japanese snacks; they're rice crackers coated in soy sauce. Very crunchy and sweet and salty πŸ’—

Here I am, stuffing my face like a greedy little pig 😢:

ZENPOP Beauty Pack Review - a box full of beauty products from JAPAN!



Konnichiwa Kittens,

I recently received a beauty box from http://zenpop.jp and I'm really impressed. If you love beauty products and you love Japan, this is the box you need to get your hands on! You don't have to hop on a plane to go to Japan...
Zenpop will bring Japan to you!πŸ’œ

Zenpop is part of http://zenmarket.jp and they offer 5 different types of boxes, renewed every month: a Sweets Pack, a Ramen Pack, a Ramen + Sweets Mix Pack, a Stationery Pack and a Beauty Pack. Each box costs $29.50, except for the Mix Pack that costs $24.50. Zenpop offers free international shipping and tracking is available for an additional $3! 


Here is the April 2018 Zenpop Beauty Pack:
This month's box is called "Nyanko" Pack. "Nyanko" means kitty in Japanese so everything in the box is related to cats 😸 There were 7 beauty items in the box:
 1.) Shiny Cat Nail Buffer
This cute cat is double sided. The back of this cat's face buffers your nails while the cat's face makes your nails shiny! Your nails will always be in tip-top shape with this kitty. It's the perfect size too, so you can carry it in your handbag.
 2.) Hello Kitty Lip Balm from Sanrio
Look at the darling packaging!! I collect lip balms so I'm sooo happy this was inside this Zenpop beauty box! It's a regular lip balm (tint-free) and the consistency is lovely. My lips feel so smooth wearing this!
 3.) Cat Scrunchie from Maggio (Osaka)
Oh, this scrunchie is the cutest! Look at those eyes 😻 You can tell that it's high quality and I'm so glad I got the white version. I'm very into ponytails these days so I know I'll be using this item a lot!
 4.) KOJI - Spring heart, Liquid Eyeliner
KOJI is a famous Japanese cosmetics brand and this black eyeliner rocks! I tried it and it really is waterproof and rub resistant. The black color is nice and intense. I'm going to be using this...everyday. Meow~

5.)  Cat Eyeliner Template by Ishihara Shoten
This is such an innovative beauty tool! I had no idea it even existed and I'm impressed. You can create different types of cat eye looks with different parts of the cat's body. So creative! And your eyeliner will be symmetrical too (this is great news for me πŸ˜†).
 6.) Hello Kitty Cherry Blossom Essence Sheet Mask
Not only does this smell divine, this sheet mask feels so cool and soothing! As explained in the information sheet, cherry blossoms are rich in antioxidants and they repair the skin's natural barriers. This is the perfect mask for pampering yourself! If you close your eyes, you'll think you're in Japan 😍
8.) Hello Kitty Memo Pad & Pencil
These items were bonus items and as you can see, they're beautiful! 

Every single item in this Zenpop box was not only adorable but also useful. I really recommend this subscription box service. Japanese beauty products are so hard (if not impossible) to find so this box is simply delightful! 

Here is my unboxing video, where I also try the items in my Zenpop Beauty Box! 



Sayonara for now ~
