Look at this fantastically generous gift from Riya~
She knew I was having trouble finding Asian beauty brand cosmetics where I live (Detroit area) these days. It used to be a lot easier but with our economy doing so poorly a lot of people have moved away, including shops that were importing fun Japanese and Korean beauty goods! I got to try some Japanese products when I lived in Japan, but I haven't had a chance to try any of the Korean brands (Laneige, Missha, Etude House, etc.) that I've been reading so much about on some of my favorite blogs i.e. Musings of a Muse and, of course, Riya's blog <3
|It came with a single J-Pop CD and I like some J-Pop a lot (mostly early 2000's Ayumi Hamasaki and Hikaru Utada, if you're curious), so it'll be fun to give it a listen on my looong morning commute :)|
Last but not least is a whole rainbow of adorable nail polishes. I'm absolutely going to swatch these and write a post as soon as we get a sliver of sunlight!
A humongous, enthusiastic "Thank you so much!!! <3" to Riya for her thoughtfulness and generosity. You totally made my month! I'm so looking forward to trying all this amazing stuff out *happy dance*
