I also tried on fake lashes for the first time today. It took me forever to figure out though, and I especially couldn't get the right eye one on. But I did it in the end. Yay! I discovered the eyeliner I bought kinda sucks though. It's not as black as I'd like it to be.
But so we headed off to Shibuya and I got to wear my new sandals. :D When we got off we decided we were hungry and we stopped at a restaurant in a building I think was called "Gourmet Town" or something and we went up to the top floor to eat at a place called Nin'niku.

After we paid, we headed over to Shibuya 109 to get my shopping on~ The first place we ended up stopping and buying stuff was at Cecil McBee (it is every girl's desire to be a Cecil McBee girl!). They just had so many cute sets going on (major deals!), I couldn't pass them up. T-T
I was impressed though. The woman helping me out was really cute and nice too. She even chased Dan down for me when I wanted his opinion about the dress. Also she followed us around and carried all the things I bought for me. I had a major noob moment when I was trying to tell her this was all I'd buy though. They also had yukata (summer Japanese kimono made of cotton) sets on sale that even included the geta (the special kind of sandals you wear with this kind of kimono)!! They were about $40-$50. I was sooooo tempted to buy it, I want a yukata so bad. Our town will even have a festival on the 4th and 5th, so it'd be a perfect opportunity to wear it.
After we left Cecil McBee, we wandered through a few more stores, like Egoist. In Egoist I tried on this really funky skirt that looks like an inside-out checkered flannel jacket, but it was too expensive. Up another floor or two, I discovered that the handmade accessory and decorating store called Chiara was having lucky bags for 500 yen. Of course I didn't pass that up (and Daniel was actually kind enough to pay for it for me. Thanks wub!).
This cute phone strap which would have originally cost 300 yen.
A funky looking scrunchy that normally would have cost 525 yen.
After Chiara, we headed upstairs until we came to the corner with Ober Tasche, the store where I got my backpack from earlier, and the deco-accessory store next to Ober Tasche called Ruby Rose. I bought the cell phone strap I had decided I wanted after browsing the last time I went to Shibuya 109:
Isn't it just so cute? = 3= I love it!
After Ruby Rose, we made our way around the circular floor (this was floor 7), browsed through a few more stores (I spotted a few things I liked like some light weight pants in a shop called One Way that I might end up buying later?) and then we came to Ruvap. I looked at some jeans they had on the rack, and the lady working there was just so outgoing and nice I decided I'd try on the jeans. I wasn't sure about my size, so she let me try on both M and L. Unfortunately, since I have a butt M was a bit too tight, but L fit okay.
The buttons are actually hearts, and the jeans are pretty sparkly too. So lovely. = 3=
I also got this t-shirt too.
After we left Ruvap, we headed upstairs and decided we sit down and grab a parfait to eat and some drinks...or so we thought. A lot of stores in Japan keep their menu outside or plastic food models of their food in a display case, so we looked at one display case but we ended up going to the wrong restaurant. Oops. The place we ended up going to by mistake was called Ma Maison, and we ordered drinks and I got a slice of cake.
Directly across from Ma Maison there was a poster that said "your photo here" or something to that extent, so we decided to take our own pictures.
All of these things bought, we headed down to the second basement floor and to the train station. Man oh man, since it was like 7pm when we got there, everyone was on the trains trying to get home. It was pretty crowded and I ended up having to stand the whole time for the half hour or so it took to get home. My feet felt like they were burning and I kept shifting my weight trying to take some pressure off, but that didn't help at all. Just thinking back on it now makes my feet tingle a bit with pain. When we finally made it to our station, I grabbed the first type of cup noodles I saw at the Sunkus next to the station in case we got hungry for dinner later and we headed home to turn on the a/c and cool ourselves down. Man it's way too hot here.
