Recently I found another Japan-based blogger. Meet Brianna, thesungirl! We’ve chatted back and forth on email and twitter, and I sent her a sample of some body care stuff. I was SO surprised to see a package back from her!
If you haven’t checked out her blog, please go take a look (Her “followers” tab is at the bottom of her layout).
Victoria’s Secret Body Butter in Berry Kiss and Hydrating Body Lotion in Love Spell
Victoria’s Secret skin care is getting more popular here in Japan, where girls call it “Vikushi-”.
Victoria’s Secret = Vikutoria Shi-kurettsu (transliterated to Japanese) = Vikushi-
(Taking the first few syllables from each of the words is a common way of shortening words here!)
I’ve been really interested in VS stuff. How did you know?
Lush Sugar Scrub
Wow, thanks for checking out my wishlist! It must have been hard to find this, because in Japan, it’s called “Punch in the Shower”. What is it with these weird Japanese Lush names which are totally unrelated to the original English names?
A Lush Tin
Very pretty stud earrings!
An ADORABLE card!
(I found out later that she made this herself! How amazing is that!!!)
Thank YOU for this love pack! Brianna said she noticed I seemed down and wanted to cheer me up. Thank you for being so incredibly sweet! I hope that we can meet up SOON. Hmmm… maybe we should do a meetup – in Tokyo or in Kobe!
