Japan : Lets go to the Jill Stuart Cafe in Tokyo!

Oddly enough it was not in the main shopping areas of Tokyo but a small sleepy suburb called Futako-tamagawa.
This area is currently in massive development and a brand new mall has opened up. The cafe resides in this mall. [I might write about this mall next time if anyone wants to hear about it]

Here is the cafe!

Sunkiller BB by KissMe- love this stuff. light and easy to wear. I use this if i have no time to put primer or sunscreen on my face XD
SkinAqua BB by Sunplay – Don’t want a shiny nose? Wear this. this will keep u shine free for HOURS.
MAC Blot Power – doesnt need a mention, think i featured this in 3 previous memes XD

From left:
AG+ Deodorant Cool powder spray -nothing special, just deodorant. Not sure if its the best out there
Mosquito Deterrant spray – i get eaten alive by mozzies if i don’t spray this on XD
KissMe UV Sunscreen spray – love this stuff. the cool gust of air is a nice touch!
8×4 Foot Spray – a must have for those who sweat in office shoes [sorry but stockings are useless against that!]

5. Other must-haves for Summer :D

Keep yourself hydrated [not just in summer!] , i always carry a bottle of water around with me and recently i bought myself a Vapur reusable bottle [i blame bravebirdfly for her enabling]
I also carry a portable fan from time to time, esp if i know i am going to be outdoors a lot.
A beauty must have for summer – de slick oil control makeup setting spray from Urban Decay! I know it doesn’t work for everyone but it works wonders for me. This is my 2nd bottle.

Wanna take part?
Here’s a recap of the list!
