YesStyle Haul: 2021 Spring Haul

Bralette and Shorts from YesStyle

I know it’s summer now, but better late than never, right?! Here’s my blog post featuring my Spring Haul from YesStyle.

In addition to the current YesStyle sale, you can use my code “3PEARLS” to get an extra discount off your order! One of my favorite things about YesStyle is that there’s always a great sale going on.

You can also check out my First HaulSpring Haul, Summer Haul, and Winter Haul Part1 and Part2.

The pile of stuff!

For my Spring Haul, I got some clothes as well as miscellaneous items. I also got two free items: one which was a free gift with my order, and the other was a sponsored product in return for a review on Instagram.

  • Cute Essentials – Cat Magnet – ★★★★★ – This magnet is sooo cute and also super useful!! I’d highly recommend getting one (or a bunch) if you want to have a useful hook on your fridge to use for a hand towel, or if you have a metal door as your front door so you can stick it up there and hang up your hat or tote bag. I wish I got more than one.
  • Momoi – Printed Mask Carrying Pouch – ★★★★★ – This pouch is super useful and perfectly sized for carrying your face mask. I get paranoid about being mask-less, so I always carry extras in my purse. I put my extras in this pouch, and it keeps them clean and easy to locate! After the pandemic ends, I think this pouch will still be useful for carrying other items.
  • Bling Thing – Lucky Cat Bracelet – ★★★★★ – This bracelet is really cute and high-quality. The little bell is real too! It’s too cute. I love wearing this bracelet, and it’s very easy to put on since you don’t have to deal with any clasps.
  • Reiro – Fluffy Scrunchie – ★★★★★ – What a cute and super soft scrunchie! I haven’t worn this yet, but this would actually be perfect for winter looks. Especially if you have a pink coat or sweater.

  • Reiro – Fluffy Scrunchie – ★★★★★ – What a cute and super soft scrunchie! I haven’t worn this yet, but this would actually be perfect for winter looks. Especially if you have a pink coat or sweater.
  • Pouffle – Snake Hair Clip – ★★★★★ – This hair clip is very stylish. I’m glad I picked the goldtone one because the lovely green eyes on the snake really stand out. This hair clip also comes in a silver colorway, but in the stock photos, the silver one doesn’t look like it has gemstone eyes.
  • NENE – Long-Sleeve V-Neck Mini Bodycon Dress – ★★★★★ – This dress is so soft and stretchy, and really comfortable to wear. I didn’t wear it outside yet, and only tried it on. Even though I got this during my spring haul, this item is more appropriate for fall and winter since it’s a sweater material. I love the ruched detailing on the skirt of this dress! If you’re not into pink, this dress also comes in a black colorway. I’m quite tempted to get the one in black too…
  • Hyoty – Fleece-Lined Leggings – ★★★★★ – I have a lot of fleece-lined leggings, but this was my first time finding a skin-color one. I think the nude color would look good if you don’t want to look like you’re wearing leggings, but you want to keep your legs warm. It doesn’t look totally realistic and doesn’t match my skintone, but I’m still giving it 5 stars since the product itself is high-quality, super comfy and stretchy, and will keep your legs warmer than regular leggings.
  • Whoosh – Padded Cropped Camisole Top – ★★☆☆☆ – This camisole is super cute, but the reason I’m giving it 2 stars is because it came defective. See the photo below; the strap is sewn incorrectly and is twisted. I thought about returning it, but I didn’t want to pay for return shipping, so I decided to keep it. I will probably wear it anyways, but it’s disappointing that it’s defective.
  • Nine Tails – Lettuce-Edge Off-Shoulder Rib-Knit Top – ★★★★★ – When I first saw this, I was worried it wouldn’t fit me since it looked so small. However, I was pleasantly surprised that it fit perfectly! The fabric is super stretchy and comfortable. It’s also a shirt that truly stays off-the-shoulder, so I was happy about that! With most off-the-shoulder shirts, I have an issue where they always creep up and look scoop neck.
  • GANGER – Short-Sleeve Frog-Button Knit Top – ★★★★☆ – This qipao-inspired top is super cute! It’s a jersey t-shirt material and has a fully functional frog-button on top. The frog-button took me a long time to do, so I wish that was easier to clasp and unclasp. It’s super flattering when worn.
  • Ginger Girl – Halter Neck Rib Knit Tank Top – ★★★★★ – This halter tank top is in a sweater rib knit material, and is super stretchy and comfortable. The halter neck is not adjustable, but it fit perfectly for me. I really love how this halter looks and am tempted to get other colors, but trying to have self-control since I already have a similar-looking ivory-colored one, which you can see in my Summer Haul.
  • Meigo – Lace Panel Long-Sleeve Top – ★★★★★ – This lace top has beautiful floral details! I was worried it would be scratchy, but it’s smooth and comfortable to wear. It looks so pretty under a dress! It comes in other colors like brown, white, beige, gray, and light brown. I’m quite tempted to get another colorway!
  • chuu – Super Skinny -5kg Denim Shorts vol.30 – ★★★★★ – These cuffed shorts come with a mid-rise cut and twill construction, and they’re so stretchy and comfortable! The pink color is just like the photos online, and it even comes with an authentication card so you know it’s authentic and not a knock-off. I got a Size Medium, and it fits perfectly! Definitely read through the size charts to find your fit. These shorts come in many different colors too.

What is your favorite item from this haul? Let me know in the comments if you have any of these items too! Happy shopping, and remember to use my code “3PEARLS” for your YesStyle hauls.

[YesStyle] Winter Haul Part 2: Fashion

On top of any YesStyle sales going on at the moment, use my code “3PEARLS” to get an additional discount off your entire order!

You can check out my First Haul, Spring Haul, and Summer Haul too. Part 1 of my Winter Haul is focused on the beauty products I got, which you can read here.

I did not have a Fall/Autumn haul, so here’s my winter haul! I put the beauty products from this haul in Part 1 of my Winter Haul review. Here’s the YesStyle haul at a glance:

Everything I got was on sale! YesStyle always has great sales going on, and you can get discounts on fashion, K-beauty, J-beauty, home goods, jewelry, shoes, and more! If you use their app, you can also get free gifts with your orders.

Let’s talk about the accessories first…

  • Loville – Thigh High Socks – ★★★★★ – Love these socks! They’re high-quality and comfortable. Exactly as pictured online. Great price! I was definitely impressed by the quality considering how cheap they are.
  • Reiro – Printed Chiffon Bow Hair Clip – ★★★★★ – This floral chiffon bow is so cute! I had trouble choosing which bow to get since all the designs and colors are adorable, but I decided to try the light blue with white daisies since I don’t have any light blue hair accessories yet. Highly recommend this bow hair clip!
  • SURELIN – Heart Layered Faux Leather Garter  – ★★★★★ – This garter is soooo cute! Love the heart detail. I bought the black garter from YesStyle before too, as part of my Summer Haul. The pink garter is equally perfect and cute! I haven’t had the opportunity to wear it yet, but I’d like to coordinate this with some of my pastel looks, and maybe create a pastel-punk look.
  • Pouffle – Heart Choker – ★★★★★ – This choker is so cute, and even though it’s from a different brand, it matches the pink garter I got perfectly. If you want a matching set, definitely buy both of these in pink! I bought the white heart choker from YesStyle before too, as part of my Summer Haul. I wore this heart choker with my kawaii look for Christmas.
  • YUGGI – Faux Pearl Pendant Layered Choker – ★★★★★ – Super impressed with this choker! It’s two layers, and sometimes they get tangled in storage, but that happens a lot with my necklaces. It’s pretty easy to detangle. I have sensitive skin, but wearing this necklace never irritated my skin. I’ve worn it many times already. It’s a very elegant piece of jewelry and also easy to match with outfits. I’m wearing this necklace in the first photo on this blog post.
  • EROPIA – Set: Floral Print Off-Shoulder Crop Top + Mini Skirt – ★★★☆☆ – So the listing was misleading for this one. I thought it was a top and skirt set, but the skirt is actually a sarong. It wraps around and ties. I think this would be more suited as a swimsuit coverup. If you wear the miniskirt like so, you’d risk flashing everyone. The quality is also not the best, and the fabric feels cheap. The sleeves on the top are also super tight; similar problem to the Asymmetric Short-Sleeve Plaid Cropped Blouse / A-Line Skirt I bought as part of my Summer Haul.
  • Dute – Asymmetric Sleeveless Midi A-Line Dress – ★★★★☆ – Love the punky design of this black dress! It’s a midi-length, although since I’m short, it’s almost maxi length on me. The fabric is the type that wrinkles super easily, so I knocked off one star for that. I also had to trim a bunch of loose threads. I haven’t worn this dress yet, but I’m debating whether to wear it by itself or layered over a sheer shirt first. Either way, this dress will look cool!
  • NENE – Long-Sleeve Paneled Mini A-Line Plaid Dress – ★★★★☆ – The design of this dress is so elegant and cute! The plaid has some glitter in it, which I didn’t notice from the stock photos. It’s true to size, and this dress is almost perfect. The only thing I didn’t like about it were the straps with buttons around the wrists because they constantly fall off. My wrists are really small, so I have the same issue with bangles, but I thought these straps would be fine since they have buttons – but they don’t go tight enough, plus there’s only one belt loop for them on each wrist. It would be more effective to have at least 2 belt loops on each wrist so the straps don’t fall off.
  • Aigan – Rabbit Embroidered Cardigan – ★★★★★ – Wow, this cardigan is so cute and cozy!! I love the design and colors, and the fabric is super soft. It comes in white, black, and pink colorways, so I chose the pink one but all 3 colorways are really cute. Definitely check out this cardigan sweater! Perfect for fairy kei or any kawaii look.
  • chuu – Super Skinny -5kg Jeans vol.14 – ★★★★☆ – Thick and high-quality jeans in a very light blue color. They were tight on me, but I probably should have sized up. I got the Sky Blue color is size 27 but I think 28 would have been better. Jeans are hard for me to shop for since even in the USA, I wear a wide variety of sizes (I’ve worn everything from 25 to 29, and also 4 petite, 6 petite, size Small, etc.). I struggled to get into these, but I’ve worn them a few times and they’re comfy when you get used to them. I do wish they were more stretchy! If you get these jeans, size up.
Authentication card for the Chuu -5kg jeans

Overall, this was a great haul! The only item I was truly disappointed in was the Eropia set. I’ll probably avoid the Eropia brand in the future on YesStyle… (Hopefully I’ll remember!) Are there any brands you’re trying to avoid?

If you’re shopping on YesStyle, use my code “3PEARLS” to get an additional discount off your entire order!

Japan Candy Box Review & Giveaway

Japan Candy Box

Have you ever tried the Japan Candy Box? I’m so excited to share this fun box with you! The box I received was a Halloween themed one. Even though it’s no longer Halloween, Halloween is my favorite holiday and I’d be happy to eat these adorable Halloween-themed treats from Japan all year round. Japan Candy Box is also sponsoring a GIVEAWAY so you can win your own FREE Japan Candy Box! Click here to enter, or use the widget at the end of this post. The giveaway ends at 11:59PM on March 17th, 2021.

Check out my Japan Candy Box opening on Youtube!

See below for a photo of everything that came in the box:

So many adorable Halloween-themed goodies from Japan! The first snack I tried was the Halloween Night Baby Star Ramen Snacks (Limited Edition). It’s basically a crispy chicken flavor ramen snack (mashed up ramen noodles, but you can eat it as is). Savory and addicting! I wish there was a bigger bag! After I tried this savory snack, I tried something sweet: the Spooky Halloween Black Thunder Choco Bar. This chocolate bar was a combination of dark chocolate and cookie chunks and crispy rice puffs. It was a delightful combination! The Witch’s Brew Mix & Match Gumballs were a fun idea, although I couldn’t figure out the flavors. They just taste fruity and sweet! I tried some by themselves, and tried some mixed together. All of them tasted yummy!

My favorite snack is the one you see below though: the Bokun Habanero Spicy Potato Rings! It’s not spicy at all though, but maybe that’s because I’m used to eating a lot of spicy food. It is rated with 5 peppers on the bag, but I’d say it’s only about 1 pepper. Mildly spicy, but so delicious!

Have you tried any of these snacks before? If so, share your favorites in the comments! Be sure to enter the giveaway here.

Summer Kawaii Box Giveaway & Review

Hi everyone! Thank you to all who entered my first Kawaii Box giveaway, and congratulations to the winner. It was really fun to open up my first Kawaii Box, and I’m super excited to share my second Kawaii Box with you all!

Alice In Lolitaland Kawaii Box Giveaway https://widget.gleamjs.io/e.js

Good luck, everyone! Read on to see my review of this box.

There were soooo many cute stuff in July’s box! As usual, even the box itself is super cute. I love the neon pink print!

The box was lined with its cute signature tissue paper, and it was full of kawaii goodies.

The July 2020 Box’s theme is Sanrio Summer Splash. I love Sanrio characters, and I got lucky with this little haul. I adore the Little Twin Stars socks; I think these socks are my favorite surprise in this box! I haven’t tried the Gudetama or Hello Kitty treats yet but I will soon. I love trying new snacks and candies, and I’m pleased that there were two treats in this box. In my last box, I got one treat – and those soda chocolates were so delicious! I ate them all too quickly and want some more.

I also got 4 stationery items in this box – a roll of washi tape, a hamster pen, sticky notes, and a mini letterhead/envelope set! And last but not least, a cute Pompompurin mini plush zip pouch. I really loved this Sanrio-themed box, and would recommend Kawaii Box to all fans of kawaii culture. Even if you’re not too familiar with kawaii culture, you’d love this box if you enjoy cute and fun surprises. This box would also make a great gift for a friend or family member!

Which are your favorites from the box I got? If you got your own Kawaii Box, please share what you got too! I love seeing the variety of items in everyone’s boxes. And remember – click this link to enter and get chances to win your own free Kawaii Box!

Kawaii Box Giveaway & Review

Have you ever heard of Kawaii Box? It’s a monthly subscription box that is full of curated kawaii goodies from Japan. They offer free shipping worldwide, and you can check out their past boxes on their website. Kawaii Box was kind enough to sponsor a box for me to review, and they are also sponsoring a giveaway! You can enter the giveaway here. ^_^

I haven’t made a YouTube video in a very long time, but I made one for this box opening! Check out a live video of the box opening here.

Read on for a written version of my box opening, including photos…

Even the box that Kawaii Box ships out is adorable! I love the adorable pink print.

Upon opening the box, I was pleased to find another adorable print on the interior, and everything is wrapped in cute tissue paper and comes with a little pamphlet explaining all the items in the box.

Soooo many cute pastel things! I love everything in this box.

The pamphlet with Kawaii Birthday Home Party has a list of all items included in the box and explains each one. I love this touch, especially because without the pamphlet, I wouldn’t have known what the box of soda candy was or that the purple candy-shaped thing wasn’t candy but was actually a highlighter.

I almost missed the pen, but found it at the bottom edge of the box and took another photo of the pen with the sakura washi tape! These are two of the kawaii stationery items included in the box (along with the highlighter and pencil sharpener/eraser set). I really love collecting stationery, so I’m excited to use these.

Have you ever tried the Kawaii Box? If so, I’d love to hear your thoughts! Let me know in the comments. ^_^

[LBC] 5 Surprise Finds That You Didn’t Realize You Would Enjoy So Much

This week’s prompt is “5 Surprise Finds That You Didn’t Realize You Would Enjoy So Much!”

I’m sure everyone has encountered surprise finds, whether it was an impulse buy, a gift from a friend, or something you saw and unexpectedly felt a pull toward it, even though you normally wouldn’t gravitate toward something like that.

AATP Starlit Sky Tent and the Secret Circus Troupe JSK I

1) This JSK was truly a surprise for me, because I got it from a lucky pack and had no idea what I was going to get (other than it being from the Alice and the Pirates brand). The name of the JSK is Starlit Sky Tent and the Secret Circus Troupe JSK I, in the blue colorway. I was hoping for something in red or bordeaux, so at first, I was disappointed when I saw the color. But I grew to love it’s unique print and beautiful design, and I’ve worn this dress often!

image
Red Mary Janes from Wolky

2) These Wolky red Mary Jane shoes were a surprise find in a small locally-owned shoe store near my college campus. They were on clearance sale, so I got a good deal on them, and at first, I wasn’t sure if they’d truly be comfortable since they have heels. But I’ve worn these walking, dancing, etc. and they’re really comfortable and well-made shoes! I love Lolita tea party shoes, but unfortunately, they’re not really made for walking and aren’t comfortable. As someone with Ehlers-Danlos Syndrome and flat feet, I also need arch supports. And these shoes have built-in arch supports! Even without my custom orthotics, they are comfortable. Sneakers are more comfortable though, but I rarely wear sneakers with Lolita fashion. I’ve worn these Wolky shoes with almost all of my red colorway coords.

Bodyline Black Wristcuffs

3) These black Bodyline wristcuffs were a surprise find, and honestly I wasn’t expecting much… but they’re so cute and I’ve worn them for so many coords! They’re really versatile and work well for both gothic and sweet (bittersweet) coordinates. They’ve also held up well; the elastic hasn’t become over-stretched.

Vintage Gloves (Photo by Ameily)

4) These vintage French crochet gloves were totally a surprise find from a Parisian flea market. They were damaged though and I’m scared to wear them much because they’re quite fragile. But I enjoy them so much, even if it’s just gazing at them. I store them in a clear ziploc bag, and they are stored in a container in a very visible place in my room, so even though I’ve had them for years, I still like to look at them. Occasionally, I’ll wear them out with coords!

F21 Goldtone Ring with Ivory Rose

5) This goldtone ring with an ivory rose was something I found years ago in Forever21. When I first got it, I wasn’t too into it, but as I built my Lolita fashion wardrobe, I found myself wearing it more and more often. It’s very easy to match with various colors, and it fits comfortably on my middle finger. It’s a versatile ring that will look great with non-Lolita coordinates too. And it’s sturdy! Many of my rings have broken if I drop them, or they get scratched and discolored, but this ring still loks practically new.

[Lolita Blog Carnival] Share A Bit About Your Favorite Piece and How You Acquired It

This week’s prompt is “Share A Bit About Your Favorite Piece & How You Acquired It.”

Birthday 2018

My favorite piece is one of my dream dresses: Angelic Pretty’s French Café in the red colorway. I’ve worn it for my birthday tea party two years in a row (and didn’t even realize this fact til one of my friends pointed it out). I always gravitated towards this dress among my dream dresses over the years, and after acquiring it, I still enjoy looking at it (and wearing it!). It’s currently hanging on the rack in my bedroom so I can look at it everyday.

Birthday 2019

How did I acquire my French Café JSK? Secondhand, of course! I can’t recall exactly when I purchased it, but it was a few years ago from a friend in the Boston Lolita Community. She was kind enough to let me pay her through a payment plan, and I purchased this JSK as a set with the headbow and socks, and I also purchased some other lolita clothing items from her as part of the same payment plan.

What’s your favorite lolita fashion piece? Share the story of how you’ve acquired your fave in the comments! I love hearing these stories.

YesStyle: First Haul

I’m so excited to share my first haul from YesStyle! I’ve checked out this site before but was wary of purchasing from it because there were so many items and I wasn’t even sure where to start. I finally decided to jump in during their spring sale and get a bunch of things at great deals. They offer free shipping if you spend $35 or more (and I hate paying for shipping, so free shipping is something I always look out for). Everyday, they also have Free Gifts you can claim. I totally forgot to claim a free gift during this haul, so I have to claim one next time.

On top of any sales going on at the moment, use the code “3PEARLS” to get an additional discount off your entire order! ^_^

Now, let’s take a look at my haul:

In my day-to-day life, I wear a lot of black… so of course, most of my new wardrobe additions are black too. I just find this color so easy to match! I got four tops in black during this haul.

  1. Short-Sleeve Mock-Neck Knit Top – ★★★☆☆ – This top isn’t the best quality (feels cheaply made, and there were lots of loose threads), but it was less than $10 so I can’t complain. It’s a stretchy fabric and the zipper is fully functional. The size chart was accurate.
  2. Heart Cutout Short-Sleeved T-Shirt – ★★★★☆ – I was worried about sizing for this item, but a size Medium fit me perfectly! The T-shirt’s cotton material was super soft, and the sheer heart cutout inset was surprisingly smooth. The inset wasn’t itchy like I thought it would be. I found this shirt to be higher quality than the first one.
  3. Bell-Sleeve Chiffon Blouse – ★★★★☆ – Love this item! The fabric is so pretty and it drapes well when worn. It’s better quality than I expected; the only thing I dislike about it is the button at the back of the neck. This button was difficult to do and undo (but I tend to have difficulty with buttons when they’re in the back). It’s sheer, so I recommend wearing a camisole with it.
  4. Ruffle Trim Blouse – ★★★☆☆ – This is a very stylish top, but the photos on the website are not accurate. The top I received had smaller ruffles than what is shown on the website stock photos. This isn’t a big deal though; it still looks fine when worn.

Besides my black tops, I also got some clothing pieces in other colors.

  1. Strappy Ruffled Floral Top – ★★★☆☆ – This top is super cute but feels cheaply made. I thought it would be embroidered, but the white floral patterns are printed on. The fabric is very thin, but not see-through. I had to cut off a lot of loose threads.
  2. Sheer Long-Sleeved Blouse + Camisole – ★★★★☆ – This set really impressed me! The quality is great, and both the camisole and the blouse fit me perfectly. The only complaint I have: there are three buttons on the back of the neck… I always have difficulty doing and undoing buttons at the back of the neck, so having 3 to deal with is frustrating for me (and I’m tempted to just… not button the back). If anyone has tips for doing these buttons efficiently, let me know! I have too many black shirts, but I’m tempted to get this in the black colorway as well…
  3. Plaid A-Line Pinafore Dress – ★★★★☆ – This is the priciest item in my haul, but it was still less than $20. I wasn’t sure if Size S or Size M would fit me better, so I chose Medium to be safe. I’m glad I did! It has a loose fit when you first put it on, but you can tighten it around the waist with the attached buckles. There were a few loose threads, and the acrylic blend feels a bit itchy which is why I didn’t rate it 5 stars.

I also couldn’t resist adding a few accessories to my haul…

  1. Faux Leather Heart Buckle Belt – ★★★☆☆ – This belt is super cute!! But the faux leather is… really faux. It feels almost like paper or cardboard. Definitely be gentle with this belt; I’m not sure how long it will last if you’re rough with it. The first photo in this post is a pic of me wearing the belt. It looks great when worn! I wish the quality was nicer, but for less than $5, I can’t complain.
  2. 925 Sterling Silver Non-matching Rhinestone Moon Dangle Earrings – ★★★☆☆ – These earrings are so cute! I wish they had metal backings though. The backings they came with are the clear plastic kind, that you sometimes find with hook earrings. They are difficult to put on and remove from stud earrings. The photos on the website are also inaccurate: the chain on the longer mismatched earring is longer in the photos than the one I received.
  3. 925 Sterling Silver Petal Hook Earrings – ★★★★☆ – These earrings are so pretty and elegant! I wish they came with backings, but it’s no big deal. I might use the backings on the other pair of earrings with this one, and then share my other stud backings with the mismatching earrings I got. Both sets of earrings are real sterling silver; I have sensitive ears and I didn’t have a reaction to either of these.

If you shop at YesStyle, let me know if you have any of these items!

If you’re going to shop now, check out their Limited Deals for great discounts. Use the code “3PEARLS” to get an additional discount off your entire order when you shop.

Happy Spring Shopping!~ ❀

Lolita Fashion on Taobao (Part 3): 11/11 Edition!

Have you heard of 11/11? 11/11 is Singles’ Day and is a huge shopping festival with lots of sales, discounts, lucky bags, etc. You can shop the sales at Taobao, Tmall, AliExpress.com, and some other stores and websites participate as well.

Even though I could care less about Black Friday sales… I love browsing and shopping during 11/11! Sometimes, I spend hours just online window shopping. And when the budget allows for it, snagging some great deals during 11/11 is the best!

Some of the Taobao stores display their 11/11 sales more obviously than other. When you’re on certain pages, you may be able to see a promo for the 11/11 like the following for Bobon21:

Bobon21 is a shop with gyaru, larme, etc. styles and some pieces can be loliable!

On Empty Wardrobe, you can see where the promotion is outlined under the second little red box under the price, where you see 11/11-11/11:

The promotion above is for every 200 spent, you can get 20 discounted – and there’s no cap.

At Confession Ballon, you can even buy 1 blouse and get the second blouse free:

On some shops, like Rotate Ballet, you can see the 11/11 sale banner bright and clear:

I’ve had my eye on the brand Yolanda for a while, and it looks like they have a bunch of 11/11 discounted items too:

I’ve never purchased anything from the above shops before, so I can’t vouch for quality, but they have great ratings from Taobao shoppers from what I’ve seen in customer reviews and photos on the site. If you’ve purchased from any of these stores, definitely share your thoughts! And of course, share any other 11/11 deals that you find.

To make it easier to shop and browse, I also recommend the Google Chrome extension that automatically translates webpages. This only works on text though, so text within images are a no-go.

For shops I’ve purchased from in the past, check out Part 2 of my guide.

Happy Shopping!
