When I went to Japan last November, I was really excited to visit Daiso, the 100 yen ($1) store. If you have visited a Daiso in North America (In Richmond BC, Washington, or California), you will understand the exhilarating feeling one may get when walking into a giant Japanese dollar store that sells essentially anything and everything in a much cuter form. Another great thing about shopping at Daiso in Japan is that products are actually $1. In North America, each item is $2 (most likely due to shipping costs).
I've included pictures of the purchases I made in Japan below. A product that I repurchase and love dearly but do not have a picture of, are the shoe insoles made out of this towel material. I feet sweat a lot, so it's nice to have an insole that soaks it all up and can be thrown into the laundry and dryer!
Have a lovely weekend!

|Super cute post it note paper|
|Really good quality nail polish (made in Taiwan)|
|All time favourite eyelash curler. I've been using this for over four years. It's a partial curler so I have to do one section at a time. The great thing is that I can curl the little ones at the edges.|
|White head /black head remover. Gross but necessary and way more sanitary then using your fingernails.|
|Cute nail stickers. Easy to use, quick, fun, $1, can't go wrong.|
|I've tried a couple brands of double sided eyelid tape at Daiso and this seems to be the one that lasts the longest!|
|Oil Blotting paper- I can't go through a day without using one of these sheets! I keep this one on my desk because its a huge box!|
|Daiso is every ocd organizing freak's dream. My favorite type are the clear plastic boxes so I can see what's inside of them!|
These products are not form Daiso but a regular $1 store. The great thing about Japan is that licensed products such as Sanrio are dirt cheap!
