Rakuten & Taobao Haul


I'm just going to start off by saying this is a collective haul I didn't get it all at once, also this is probably going to be a pretty picture heavy post >.< 

Lets start with Rakuten since I ordered from there first also everything is from DreamV ~
I actually lost the pictures I took of both pairs of shoes but they look the the same as the pictures below.

Got these in the cream version, surprisingly comfy I wore these when I went to London in my last post.

These in black.
I looooove this shirt I want to get more like it, maybe in mint as well, also the pearl/diamond collar is detachable.

Needed some more casual-ish t-shirts, thought this was cute and I don't have many black clothes.

Again love this cardigan it keeps me warm and looks really cute!!

I found the Rakuten ordering process really easy and straightforward although all the emails I received form them were in Japanese and I did end up having to pay custom charges which was expensive. I'm not sure it's because of the time of year or that I was just lucky in the past but I will still order from there because the price of the clothes and shipping was really reasonable. ^-^

Next Taobao ~ I'm pretty sure everything is a replica especially the Liz Lisa stuff.

Liz Lisa. Needed a new jumper especially now it's winter, mostly for around the house, very soft and warm.

Liz Lisa. 

Liz Lisa.

Not sure on the brand. The hanging pieces of ribbon are actually the straps while those chiffon type sleeves are meant to hang around the arms, looks prettier when worn.

Liz Lisa.

Not sure on the brand but the shop was called BonBon.

Ank Rouge. Reminded me very much of the dress/top Hyuna wore in her MV version of Gangnam Style.

And these where some freebies I got too ^-^

Again with Taobao I find it easy to purchase there with a shopping service, although I got hit with custom charges again -.- but it was no where near as much as Rakuten so I felt happier okay paying it.

So that's everything!!

London Shopping with Charli


Its really been a long long time since I went shopping with my best friend Charli, so we can kinda fit in everything for that one day to make up for not having the time earlier >.<

So yeah there are quite a few pictures that pretty much sum up the day :)

We headed to Westfield shopping centre in Stratford to get our remaining Xmas shopping done (well that was the plan haha) First thing we made sure to do though was get some Starbucks coffee, it was very much needed to keep me going for the day.

 Then we headed into Chinatown as we hadn't done a purikura together since February!! Also there is a promotion on there at the moment and all the purikura machines are half price, that's the reason for two sets ^-^

We were pretty hungry by this point and decided to go to Suki a Japanese restaurant because Charli was suffering with a cold and we both agreed that Suki had a better selection of ramen which would be best for someone with a cold, I dunno that was our logic anyways >.<

And then for our desert we finally went to the Haagen dazs restaurant in Leicester Square. We got waffles with cream, one scoop of praline ice cream and one scoop of caramel ice cream to share even though this is only meant for one person o.o 
It was really delicious I hope to go back again soon and try out the other deserts because they all looked so yummy!!

Also went to The Japan Centre in the hopes of finding Popteen and Egg magazines but no luck :( so I decided to buy Fool's Mate purely for Vivid's Shin on the cover, I know its said never to judge a book by its cover but look how pretty.
That's pretty much all I bought for myself and everything else was Xmas presents for people so I won't show it on here, I don't want to ruin the surprise :P

Oh and when we got back to Charli's car it had completely iced over, I got the feeling sitting inside that this is what its like to be inside and igloo.

That's about everything ~
