I havent done a Friday Random post in a bit.
Things have been crazy lately and i just havent had a chance! To make for it, this is a bumper post!!
Where to buy:
Though i spotted these here in Tokyo, I looked quickly at the USA site online and they have the EXACT same bear http://www.starbucksstore.com/products/shprodde.asp?SKU=328571
So check to see if your local starbucks has the other items ^^ Let me know and i’ll update the entry~
The packaging is lovely and so is the display!
I like how they are packaged like little chocolates. I didnt buy these as i dont like the smell of chocolate.
I cant find these on the website so i have no clue what the price is [i didnt take note, sorry!]
Where to buy:
If you are outside of Japan, let me know if u are interested in getting one, if there is enough interest, i could ask my friend Fumiko if she can do a custom order for you guys. There’s no point asking me cos as u can see from the display above..the store i saw it at was almost sold out XD
3.HadaLabo Lotion LE Disney packaging
Are you a fan of HadaLabo’s lotion? If you are check out the LE Disney packaging!

5.New Mooks i bought lately
Silicon Steamer + Recipe Mook
Has the whole silicon cookware fad hit your country yet?
Around the middle of the last year , Silicon Cookware took off like crazy in Japan. From the expensive Lekue brand to the Japanese made Viv brand, Silicon cookware has been selling like hotcakes.
I avoided them for ages but in the end i crumbled when i purchased a cookbook about a Viv pot and the rest is history. This is my 3rd Silicon pot
if you are interested in learning more about my descent into becoming a silicon cookware fan + silicon cookware recipes..lmk XD!
I dont know if this is considered a mook as its a monthly publication which you collect. Kinda like those StarTrek Files you can collect to put in a binder [wow i am so geeky sometimes XD]
Where to buy these mooks [or any other japanese books or japanese magazines you might be interested in]
If there are no japanese bookstores near you. You can try
Shipping is extremely fast but extremely expensive.

Shipping is free at YesAsia for buying over a certain amount. Thanks to Justine for the info!
