A few things I copped during our Asian adventure.
I thought I’d soak up the last little bit of blogworthy travel news, so herewith my China Haul. AKA just a few of the not-so-boring things I came back home with, that don’t include my kitsch (but SO ADORABLE) Happy Cat money jar.
Muji is basically a Japanese minimalist brand that make everything from pens, to facial toning mist to earbuds. All of which I got. I couldn’t help myself – I’m a sucker for packaging. The best thing I got however, are these tiny elastic hairbands. Discreet and don’t pull half your hair out at the end of the day.
I finally got to natural skincare brand, Aesop! I bought myself the rosehip lip cream (because it’s pretty much the only thing I could afford at the end of our trip!) and my cousin treated me to her face oil.
After walking my trusted Nike’s into the ground, it felt only fair to treat myself to these babies.
Music, Stationery, Books
Notebooks from Muji, a (long-overdue) copy of Sophia Amoruso’s #GIRLBOSS, cat sushi stationery bag and some random local music we took a chance on, at a music store in Xiamen’s Art District. Check out Miserable Faith here.
All Monki Everything
I’ve been following Swedish fashion label, Monki, on the Gram for a while so FREAKED out when I saw stores in Hong Kong. I got everything from good, basic tees to a jumpsuit I’d fight Brienne of Tarth for. The mom jeans, 90’s sweater and sandals outfit is also my new uniform.
A little cutie from a Miyazaki anime film. #nerdout. I got it because I live for the cute.
This Kinfolk is in Chinese. So I have no idea what it says. I just know it’s aesthetically appeasing. Sociality Barbie would have been proud.
Maybe it’s my desire to ace the athleisure trend. Perhaps it’s my deep dream to star in a 90’s Missy Elliot or TLC music video. But I love this transparent raincoat from Muji.
I love getting new ink when I visit a new country. Plus getting tattooed by family is a super special thing. Rich designed and tattooed this gorgeous tribute to all the little souls I’ve loved and lost and I couldn’t be happier with how it came out.
So that’s basically it from my China Haul. And now I’m ruined for life because nothing will be as awesome as shopping in Hong Kong. Dammit.
