Shopping day in October - Autumn Fasion items

In October here, I feel a little hot in a day time, but cold at the morning and night. Not easy to choose what clothes I should wear. The shops started offering a little discount on Autumn Items already and the winter items comes up. Time to get ready for a winter ??? Ummm... can't catch up really. Still need to buy some Autumn look items. So, early discounting was nice.

What I bought today at the several shops in a shopping mall,

I fell in love with this jacket at my first sight !!! JPY3,980 is good deal, right ?  
 In another shop, light beige inner with thin gold stripe. JPY1,500. Beige or Yellow, gold are my colors. I have many already though....
 And, Green&Brown colors are my favorite combination. JPY1,500 around as far as I remember (the price tag has gone out...)

 Golden and silver gradation makes my face lighten up, hopefully. JPY1,800 around.
This is the popular hair item this year. I finally got it. The color is brown. JPY1,000.- I feel it is expensive.
At UNIQLO. Less than JPY10,000 for following all items :-D
* Easy Leggins Pants in cords  - JPY1,980.  I tried it on and love them, bought 2 different colors. I am sure it will be very useful in cold winter !
* Two Sweater - JPY2,980 for each. Very nice wool. Quality is excellent for its price and I love Uniqlo Sweaters. I buy every season..hehe... These items are suitable to working places. I'm going to try from tomorrow. 

What did you buy in this Autumn ???

Lavshuca - Drugstore cosmetic brand

My cosmetic box is filled with a tond of mmu goodies. I am trying to use the natural staffs as much as possible. But, the lovely goodies in a drugstore are always tempting.

All Japanese big name cosmetic companies have sub-brand for drugstores. One of my favorites is Lavshuca (produced by Kanebo). Firstly, their product package is so cute !!!! Thier e/s pallets or various lip items are high quality for price and actually highly-rated in Japanese No.1 cosmetic rating site.

Today, I found some new products of Lavshuca and could not go without buying....
The sad thing is that this brand is not discounted normally. But, today the store offers 10% point-back sales.

What I bought is this,

Dramatic Memory Liquid - R03 color

The texture is harder than expected. I shold say it is a kind of sticky... but it can stick to the lip and keep longer than normal gloss type of lippies. The color is natural and clear, beautiful and glossy. I love it.

My target image is a model's look as above... PRETTT :-D !!!!
 Her lip color is OR-1. I was wavering which color I should buy. But... I already have Orange color of Lavshuca. So, I selected more red color that could match more on Fall looks.
All colors has gold pearl shimmer that can conform to the yellow-based skin color for Japanese gals.

My another Lavshuca lip (Orange color) is Dramatic memory Rouge.

Lovely package, right ?!?

Beautiful pinkish orange. I really love this color, it makes my face bright up and younger (just I feel at least hehe.) Great color in Spring/summer.

Comparison between above 2 types.
No flash


Ummm..... When I look at above pics, those 2 colors are similar... Yes, I know what kind of color can match on my face color. I tend to choose the similar color all the time...

The price is JPY1,200-1,500. This is almost half price of the brands for the department stores.

Autumn Dining

October has already started. It is colder here, but sometimes a little hot in the daytime.
Umm.... it makes me waver which clothes I should wear every morning.
I should go out and get some new clothes..hehe;-D
Before that, it is much easier to get the autumn foods.

I highly recommend you to come to Japan in Autumn to enjoy the seasonal foods.
Yes, the cherry blossom season would be nice timing, but for Japanese food lovers, Autumn is one of good choices. Fish is better in the colder season here.

I shopped around the food floor in the department and found many kinds of Autumn Food materials that looks really nice. No.1 Japanese Autumn Food must be MATSUTAKE. It is a kind of mushroom. It is really expensive. I can not buy Japanese one at all... cause it is over JPY10,000 !!!! Wow.

I got this pic from the web-shop. JPY10,000 for above 6pcs. So, this would be the alternative for me...
Most probably imported Matutake.
Japan imports Matsutake from USA, CANADA, KOREA, CHINA, even SWEDEN recently.
If you find Matsutake in your country, the export might be a good biz, haha.

And, I can say the most popular fish in Autumn is this.

Sanma (Japanese) Sushi ;-D

Only JPY298 for 1 package (after discounted). Good deal. I can't wait eating later.
Sanma (pacific saury) can be eaten in fresh only in case of very fresh material.
Only available in some monthes of Autumn. So, need to eat now a lot. hehe.

Also, Fruit is good in Autumn with much more varieties.
A grape is Autumn Fruit. I choose a little exensive one today.

I picked up some already and ate them. These are so sweet. I love it.
