My Name is Yaneysi and I’m a Shopaholic.

Happy Friyay, beautifuls! I can’t believe I’ve been in Florida for two weeks already, time sure likes to fly by when you’re having fun. Go figure. As, I sit poolside writing this post, I can’t help but be so grateful of how blessed I really am. These pass weeks have been filled with laughter, family love, and lots of shopping, A LOT OF SHOPPING. Not only have I been preparing for my baby boy’s second birthday, but I’ve been taking full advantage of being back in the land where there’s a Target and a Sephora! I’ve been deprived from these places for about a year and a half. It’s a tragedy! So, you can say I’ve been going ham ever since I got here. Just strolling the aisles at Target and having my arm full of swatches at Sephora have been magical. I always do a monthly favorites but, instead I thought I would do a haul of what I’ve got so far. I’ll go by categories from accessories to stationary.

Let’s start of with what my parents got me for Mother’s Day, I got here two days after Mother’s Day but it still counts. My amazing parents got me a Tiffany’s mini heart necklace and Mickey and Minnie kitchen decor. SO CUTE. They are the best.

Now on to the haul, I’ll start with accessories. Target and junk food did a Disney collab its amazing and luckily I was able to get my hands on a few things. I had to contain myself and not buy everything in sight, the struggle is real. Here are a few things I got, some are still available in store and online.

Being back in the states means you can try on clothes without feeling like a fat cow. I love Japan, but their stores aren’t big butt and big hip friendly. So, it was obvious I would buy some cute clothes. I haven’t gone too crazy since I’ve got a party to pay for in a week. But, I couldn’t help myself buying these cute dresses and romper at Target. You can find these online and save 20% off the two dresses.

I knew coming home I would go shopping so, I didn’t bring a lot of shoes. Besides missing Target and Sephora, I’ve missed the discounts store like Marshall’s and TJMaxx . I can always find something good, that something good this time are these cute Jack Rogers sandals for $50! Like Oh My Gosh! I’ve been on the hunt for cute strappy heels and Target came through with these blushy pink heels. I’m obsessed.

On to my favorite thing, makeup! I’ve found my new favorite foundation, my brother was sweet enough to buy me the NARS foundation for Mother’s Day. If y’all go back to my favorite makeup products you’ll see I have the tarte shape tape concealer, let’s just say I scraped and scraped every bit I could till I could get a new. It can now rest in peace in makeup heaven as I got a new one. The other two products are kind of an impulsive buy, but I have no regrets. I never do when it comes to makeup. Lol

Finally, there is no way anyone can go Target and not get pulled in to the dollar section, if you say you can walk right by it, you’re a whole lie. I know I can’t just walk by, so I got a few cute stationary things and pool necessities. I means it’s only $1-$3. Oh let’s not forget good old Walmart, who is really stepping up there game. I picked up some cute cases for my phone and iPad, super cute and cheap. I was sure surprised to see Kendall and Kylie cases, I love the Kardashian/Jenner Klan, I found a cute case with a matching pop socket, tots cute. The last thing is the rose gold phone case wallet I got at charming Charlie’s, another store where I had to contain myself, it’s so esthetically pleasing. Long story short, Florida is a dangerous place for me and credit card. Lol

Tired All Day, Awake All Night.

Hello beautifuls! After many months of waiting to come back to the states we have finally made it to the sunshine state, and I couldn’t be any happier. I sure didn’t like I was for the first couple of days, the jet lag was something serious and it didn’t help that I did this trip by myself with a toddler. Thank goodness my little squishy was well behaved and had his own seat. Jason had no problem falling asleep on the plane, as for myself, or so much. I don’t know how some people can fall asleep on an airplane, for me it’s the most uncomfortable place to sleep.

Now, we are finally on the right time and caught up on our sleep. But, you best believe the jet lag didn’t stop me from shopping and going into the red bullseye called, Target. I will do a haul post soon. It just feels so good to fit in clothes and have people understand what you are asking for. Not to mention getting my favorite Starbucks drink that Japan doesn’t have. I’ve gone to Starbucks about a good 10 times in the week and half that I’ve been here. No regrets! There’s so many places I want to go see and so many places I want to go shop. So far I’ve been to Target about three times, PINK (mama needed some new undies & bras), ULTA, Sephora, the Disney store, and good ol Walmart. I will definitely keep y’all posted with all the fun stuff that is yet to come.

Shopping in Japan.

When we were back in the states and my husband would have duty, Target was my favorite place to be. Since moving to Japan, I have been deprived from Target,  I miss strolling the Target aisles, especially the dollar section. Roaming the aisles helped me pass the time so I would not get bored and alone at home. There is only one store on base, the MCX, now do not get me wrong the MCX is great and has great deals but there is not much to see. One of my favorites stores in Japan is this magical dollar store called, Daiso. I call it the dollar store on crack. It kind of puts the dollar store in the states to shame. Obviously, the merchandise they sell is Japanese, but they sell the cutest things; from toilet scrubbers and house goods to cheap Disney things. I love that place, but it still can not replace Target. I think the japanese heard our cry because they opened a store called, Nitori, it is like a japanese Target. Since, my husband dreads coming to stores with me, Jason and I took a little trip to check it out. It was not as good as Target, but it did the trick. They had the cutest christmas decorations and decor. I will definitely be going back to stroll the aisles and pretend it is Target. Although, I do not have a Target or a Hobby Lobby and I have to wait forever and a day for my packages to arrive. Japan has been an amazing, once in a life time experience. Many more new experiences and adventures to come.
