Meanwhile, in the package she sent me ....
There were ALL THESE GLORIOUS CHOCOLATES/SNACKS wtf!
My family is already most of the way through all of the Tim Tams. I can see why they're so popular. The original chocolate is my favorite though because I'm boring that way. We're still making our way through the rest of it - taking a "bite" here and there and letting everyone try everything lol. It's all delicious!
Also in the package !
A few unexpected things! - Liz Lisa summer 2015 Girls in the Sun tabloid, My Melody mug, Liz Lisa Oshare Note, Liz Lisa summer 2015 novelty towel & Liz Lisa flower necklace!
During my last Japan trip, I literally left Japan on the first day of the earliest summer releases which I was slightly bummed about lol. However, that was when Berri's trip was just starting! Lol. She was able to get a Girls in the Sun special tabloid and one of the novelty items that I was unable to get because of the timing and had extras, so she very generously included them in the snack package!
The Girls in the Sun special tabloid is also available online at lizlisa.com, so I'm sure a lot of us have seen it already, but tbh I love to have a hardcopy lol. Here's a quick look if you're visiting from 2017 and forgot what it looks like haha - [click images to enlarge]
The Liz Lisa pink fruit print towel was a summer novelty starting from April 4 with a minimum purchase of 15000yen -
This mug is from the My Melody pop up cafe in Tokyo!
Berri had gone with her friends, and this is the mug that her friend received that she didn't mind giving to me!! I expected that it might be plastic but actually it's a nice, hardy ceramic mug and super cute!
This multi-flower necklace is a pretty common design for Liz Lisa, but I've never purchased one myself!
the earrings in a similar flower design a bit ago. I don't know if I'd wear them both together, but I do love matching lol. And I've really been meaning to step up my accessories game lately so I hope to make good use of this necklace! It's cute but still simple enough to just add a little extra to an outfit and matches with a lot of my existing wardrobe. Check it with the Liz Lisa mermaid OP ↑
The Liz Lisa Oshare Note originally came out in summer of 2012.
Here's a quick look of the book as it comes originally/out of the packaging -

The stickers -
(These images are for personal use and all credit goes to the artist and publisher. Please purchase and support where you can.)I haven't used it yet beyond just staring at the gorgeous illustrations, and I'm really not sure if I will end up using the stickers lol. I'm one of those people who isn't good at putting stickers on straight or puts stickers on with a bad wrinkle or something, and I can easily see that ruining a whole page haha. But when I first opened it, I was totally obsessed. It's so cool to see a sticker book with clothes and accessories that Liz Lisa actually created and were very popular that I instantly recognized!
Thank you Berri for the generous amount of items in this snack exchange package + all the fabulous extras! I was so excited to receive and look through all of it and taste all these new chocolates and things. And since I wasn't able to get my hands on the early summer novelty or the catalog, those are such a treat to have, not to mention the necklace, mug and Oshare Note too! Omg lol. I feel so spoiled and lucky to have a friend like you ♡♡♡
I also published some scans from the Liz Lisa My Melody Gakken mook vol. 3 the other day, b
