Safe to say I am not a frugal kind of person. And I thought it was time I dedicated a post to Shopping!
So I will now list all the items i've bought with a little description...Don't read this post if you're not really the materialist type...

-Handpeaded collar from Borneo- This is a really beautiful thing i got in Borneo and is made with lots of colourful beads and some pom poms. It is also the most expensive thing I bought...

-Brown paper parasol- it is brown paper which is waxed and painted with dragons and is perfect for substituting a hat.

-Crazy asian Makeup- This is actually something maeve bought but i paid 15 percent so i have unlimited access to using it (he he he...) There is everything from Gold maascara to multi coloured eyeliner.

-malaysian shadowpuppets- These two cute puppets made of paper.

-Vintage cardigan (with gold beading) From harajuku- I got this on my first visit to Harajuku in a liittle cool vintage shop and it was really busy inside because it was a public holiday.

-Pink checked coat, same day same place- i LOVE HARAJUKU!!!!!!

-1950's vintage skirt from a little festival that was going on in a rural village of japan we visited

-Japanese yukata- A light summer bth robe for wearing around the house. You know those pictures of me in the kimono looking thing? thats a Yukata!

-Frilly tutu shorts- From Harajuku....frilly white and looking like a tutu... EXCEPT ITS A PAIR OF SHORTS!!!!!

-Printed floral stockings- did I mention how much I love harajuku? I have always dreamed of finding stocking covered in roses!
-Different bits and bobs from Hiromi sato a couple of post cards, a calender all bought from this amazing shop which specialized in Blythe Dolls.

-Pretty cream fur gloves- From a 4km shopping street which was basically the spine of Osaka. All the shops sold clothes or interesting accessories.

-Fur pink oversized bow headband- From the same street and slightly lady gaga ish. Its so pretty! I won't tell you how much though....

-Glass spherical pocketwatch. Yes my collection is growing and this is one amazing pocketwatch which i got in Shanghai from Dong Tai Lu Antique market. It is very ubnlikeley however that it is actually antique. infact I am almost positive that it is reproduction.

-Circular lensed gold rimmed "antique glasses"- These are also probably not antique but they are so unusual and fashion forward i just had to!!!

-white leather oxford style half boots- We got these in a big warehouse of a market which was mainly all knock offs, but these I thought wer really nice.

-cricket cage- for those of you who know the movie "Mulan" you will remeber her little cricket friend who her grandmother gives her because he is a very lcky cricket. Well this is the cage he live in, Its like a birdcage (pretty cane asian style) but smaller. We got this in a pet market so they thought it very strange when i didn't want a pet cricket to go in it....

-The bed throw I bought today which is all orange and embroidered. Bought fom the local village market.

So now I am done being artificial. Sorry about my materialistic post but I like clothes and I like stuff....

I also like shopping.
