Taipei Haul

ASIA GOODIES

During my holiday, I wasn't in the crazy shopping mood like I usually would. I usually come back with an extra suitcase full of new clothes, makeup, everything. Something has changed but I did pick up some bits and bobs. I had decided that I'll only purchase items I couldn't get my hands on easily in the UK. Most of my money was spent on snacks for my work drawer instead!


I did purchase a rose gold bracelet but I may have left it at the hotel when I was packing for my next flight. I was so baffled when I got back to the UK.

I was so excited when I saw a Daiso store in Taipei. For those who haven't heard of Daiso, it's a Japanese store where everything is $39 NTD. They sell a variety of beauty, interior decorations, kitchen items, household, food, living, stationary etc. This is the equivalent to Poundland in the UK but it's a lot better! My friend and I had spent ages in there, scouring every inch of the store but we had to be careful and not buy too much as we didn't have suitcases big enough to carry everything. They need to open a store in the UK.

  2. What a great haul! I am afraid I really dislike the whole shopping experience so I don't shop while on holiday. I will do entire trips and come back with utterly nothing but a bunch of awesome adventure memories. :)
