Swap with the Lovely Nadine in Japan!

This is my very first swap with Nadine from Bunny and Spice who graciously spoiled me with goodies from Japan and let’s me know when there are some good sales going on! I only wish my package to her didn’t take up to 6 weeks to get to there!

The first thing she got me was origami paper for my kusudama balls, but they almost seem too nice to use!

I also asked for some cool-looking chopsticks since I lost my favourite pair when I moved last year. I love the cute little case she got me too!

Next, I received two face masks, a cosmetics bag, a face cloth, two shimmer eye shadows in purple and green, a pink glitter nail polish, Minnie Mouse facial wipes and Hello Kitty blotting papers(?) Correct me if I’m wrong Nadine!

Finally, Nadine got me some foodstuffs! The panda is some sort of microwavable candy and the second item looks like rice flavouring which I have not had in a very long time. Having a Caucasian significant other has reduced a lot of Asian things in my kitchen…

Thank you so much Nadine! I loved everything!

  2. This is awesome! I wish I could go to Japan. There is a store nearby my home that sells Japanese stuff and I love going in and grabbing snacks.

    Microwave panda snack sounds cute, hopefully it tastes as good as it looks. I would but those origami papers just cause they are pretty, and they are almost tooo pretty to use!

    I think you meant "Wish"
    " I only with my package to her didn’t take up to 6 weeks to get to there! "

    No offense, I would just want to be notified if I made an error even if it was minor.

    Great post!

    1. Ooh, thanks for letting me know! Yes, I would like to be told as well! Just like if there is something in my teeth, please tell me! ;-)

      I've been to Japan once and I remember loading up BIG TIME on snacks, stickers, cell phone charms and all sorts of Japanese novelty items! You can get certain things in Vancouver too thanks to the large Asian population, but it's oftentimes quite expensive.

  3. I don't think I'd be able to use those origami papers, they're so pretty and I'd be too paranoid of messing up and ruining one. LOL. (Hopefully I didn't just pysch you out..)
    Those chopsticks are adorable! I love all the other goodies you got, the blotting papers and facial wipes look so cute!
    I would love to go to Japan someday, it seems like it'd be so much fun! (I've always been fascinated by the Japanese, though my blog name might kind of give that away) Really great post, Jayne!

    1. I remember I messed up an animal I was folding with some really nice paper and I refused to throw it out! It looked like crap in the end, but at least I saved the paper! I love Japan too, I went when I was 14 for a month and loved every day of it. I cannot wait to go back!

    1. It's a great country. I went for a month when I was 14 and I loved it. I came back with so much Sanrio stuff that I'm STILL living off of the same stickers more than 10 years later!

  10. ooh awesome! I really like her blog, too :) I hope you enjoy all those goodies!! As you know I am obsessed with Hello Kitty and I would love a swap package from Japan filled with Hello Kitty and Japanese LUSH products! Did you know they have different things than we do in Canada?

    1. Oooh, maybe on the next swap I can ask for Japanese Lush exclusives!

  11. Aw what a lovely bunch of goodies! lol I had to laugh at the "having a Caucasian significant other" comment. Having an "extremely picky significant other" also reduces A LOT of good food from ones kitchen. Sigh.

    1. Haha, true, a picky S.O. would definitely have the same effect! Sometimes I look around and my kitchen is so boring...all of my interesting food is at work :-)
