So I left the apartment at 12:05 noon on October 15 in Japan and did not arrive home until midnight on October 15 in Minnesota. Which means I was traveling for about 24 hours. By the end of it I was just partially numb and running pure desire to be home. I slept a few hours here and there, if not I may have gone loopy!!
I wish I could say I will never fly American Airlines (Japan Airlines has been my favorite/best experience so far) and that I will never take so many layovers again, but when plane tickets are so high nowadays there's not much I can do about it.
Well perhaps some of you can commiserate with your own airport/flight horror stories, I know it gets much worse than I had! But let's turn to something more fun - SHOPPING! Haha, it's an awful way to add fuel to the ultra-capitalistic machine that ruins growing and established economies alike, but it's too satisfying to make something yours so easily :/
I showed some of the things I'd bought in Japan earlier in this post, so now here is the rest!
Sorry it's so many pics, I don't feel like breaking it up XD
Hellcat Punks eyeball and bats pattern shorts
Super Lover's super oversized cardi - it's even huge on me, what would it look like on the average Japanese girl DX
Two Alpaca I won each on the 1st try. The staff guy was like "Is purple your favorite color" and I was like "Obviously!" (Actually I just said yes and grinned like a dork XD)
I picked out some big lashes for looking great in photos, hope they suit me^^
3p for 1050yen Tutuanna socks, it was hard to pick just three!
A Glavil cross necklace, since I don't have any tutuHA crosses left. This time I picked a nice neutral color!
Found this necklace at Paris Kid's, loved the color and the word was not too girly/cute so I snatched it up. It broke on the way home... Let me tell you cheap things aren't always worth it :/
A spike necklace from Claire's to wear with collar shirts
An eyeball purse/passcase that Amihamu carries often, it doesn't have a brand but several random accessories shops and Listen Flavor carry them
A tare tare pattern tote bag from Claire's
Magazine back issues
Vertical stripe stockings and tights, 3p for 1050yen
A glittery lip purse from BurlesQ on Takeshita-dori. I'd have liked a bigger one, but I didn't like the one at MarpleQ so this one I took home!
Monomania Tare Tare pattern socks, I wish I got more colors XD
Black wool beret from Spinns
A Listen Flavor graphic Tshirt with a creepy graphic
Bloody like dripping badge
Hellcat Punks jacket with graphics
2 Canmake cream blushes, so excited I found the red one!!
I talked myself out of getting the Glavil Devil Wing Belt by getting this waist cincher at Spinns
And some earrings I plan to make a necklace of
It's rather alot I suppose considering my limited budget, but I think I could have been even more sensible about my purchases. No I know I could have, and I have a couple regrets. But overall I think I picked out a lot of nice things that work well together haha.
