Christmas Decorating On a Budget at Daiso Japan!

Daiso Japan in Korea Town, Los Angeles

 

Hello lovies! Today I wanted to make a blog post about one of my favorite stores, Daiso Japan! Daiso is a mostly a $1.50 store (with a few exceptions) but it's insanely cooler than our 99¢ stores! I've talked about it before breifly in this post but I wanted to expand on it. They have a ton of super kawaii stuff and it's awesome for a kawaii girl on a budget! You can even get super kawaii christmas decorations and decorate your whole house for probably less than $20 lol! 

Xmas decorations at Daiso this year...


Can you spot the left over Halloween decorations?

Aren't they just aodrable? I love them and at $1.50 you can't really beat that! You could set up a really nice decoration scheme with all that cute stuff! If you do you should tweet me pictures! I would love to see them! Here is an old Daiso tour video I did a few months ago so you can see the other cute stuff they have there!

I shop at Daiso all the time and I'm super excited they just opened a store closer to me in Little Tokyo, Los Angeles! It's so big and nice I feel like I should make a whole other video about it! It's also a great place to get crafting and super cute office supplies! Daiso is an essential for a kawaii girl on a budget! I know they are only in a few states here in the USA now but they are all over the world as well! Hopefully they expand and become more common than the 99¢ Store because that place can be pretty lame in comparisson.

Japanese DIY Candy Kits!

Hello Lovelies! 

Today I wanted to talk about Japanese DIY candy kits! They are super fun and a great way to entertain yourself for a little while. I like them because when I complete one I feel like I really earned the sweet I am about to have! My favorite ones are the NeruNeruNeru and Dodotto Tsubupyon. NeruNeruNeru is fun because it has a fizzy element and a candy element! I really like candies that fizz in your mouth so it's really fun for me. I like to Dodotto Tsubupyon because it also has the fizzy element and it comes with a really cute toy sea creature dropper to make the candy with (⌒▽⌒)☆

Here is my video about Japanese DIY Candy Kits!

 

IF you have these candies at home but can't read Japanese don't worry! I made individual videos for all the candies that show you step by step how to make them! 

 

Dodotto Tsubupyon (どどっと つぶぴょん) Tutorial!

 

Nerunerunerune (ねるねるねるね) Tutorial!

 

Oekaki Gummy Land (おえかきグミランド) Tutorial!

 

Tanoshii Cake-Ya San (たのしい カーキやさん)Tutorial!

 

All in all I really love Japanese DIY candy kits except for some of the kracie poppin' cookin' ones. Sometimes they just taste like nothing or really bland and boring and sometimes their texture isn't good. They are still fun to make and it's stull funny to make things like candy sushi.

I hope you liked this post If you want me to post something specific leave me a comment or visit the contact page on here to let me know!
