I'm back from a little getaway to Hong Kong Disneyland! I left for the 'Happiest Place on Earth' last Sunday and I just got back a couple of days ago. Oh, I had a magical and wonderful time at Disneyland. It's my third time to Disneyland by the way, you can call me crazy but my sister and I are just obsessed with anything Disney and can never say no to a trip to Disneyland. This time, we brought my Uncle (it's his first time to Disneyland and Hong Kong) along with us and well of course, my parents (whom I'm not sure if they fancy Disney very much as their daughters do) had to tag along, it's not our fault they gave birth to two very passionate Disney fanatics right? :P
Both my sister and I grew up watching Disney movies and shows, my whole childhood is practically Disney! I'm a teen now and I still watch Disney movies very often, I never grow tired of Disney movies, they're timeless. But I'm very disappointed to see today's Disney channel, the shows aired on what used to be my favorite channel on TV are now silly and not fun at all (excluding Phineas and Ferb, I love that show ;D). I used to spend my days watching Totally Spies, Lizzie McGuire, That's so Raven and many more; but now they are no longer aired. Well, thank God for YouTube, and the people who upload episodes from my favorite Disney channel shows, I'm glad I still can watch the shows online and reminisce ;)
What is your favorite Disney movie/show?
let me know in the comments! :)
Back to the post, I want to show you guys the goodies I purchased while I was in Hong Kong. I'll probably write more about my trip in the future posts, I'll probably talk about bits and pieces about my magical adventure in Disneyland. I have some photos to share too, but that'll be in another post :) Today, I'll just show you my haul! :)
Let's start off with the items I got from Disneyland! :)
|Took a selca with my new pair of Minnie Mouse Ears while I was sipping on hot cocoa.|
This item has been very useful for me, it's an iPod/iPhone Dock Connector necklace thingamajigger :p I don't know what it's called exactly but basically you connect your iPod/iPhone to the dock connector thing and you can carry it around with you like necklace. I think it's very convenient and useful since I dislike lugging around my iTouch with me in my hand, now I can just hang it around my neck and wear it around, hands-free. So far my iTouch hasn't dropped when connected to this Connector Necklace thingy, so that's a good sign. My dad got this for me so thank you Daddy :)
Now on to the items I bought outside Disneyland, we only spent one day outside the resort. My mom, my sister and I went shopping the whole day at Tsing-Yi station, Maritime Square.
I bought this adorable set of Hello Kitty Mustache earrings at one of the stores outside the Maritime Square. I am a fan of Mustaches and a fan of the famous Hello Kitty, put them together and they're a perfect combination of accessory! At first I was hesitant to buy this since I don't wear earrings that often. But in the end I listed down all the reasons I should definitely buy this; I LOVE this and they're such a rare specimen, can't find this in my country so I decided not to lose the chance and buy this. There are 6 pairs of earrings, 3 pairs of Hello Kitty wearing mustaches and 3 pairs of individual mustaches, CUTE! :)
I picked up a few gifts for my girlfriends as well. I went to a beauty store called Colour Mix just right outside one of the entrances to Maritime Square. They were selling these really cute packaged perfume samples which I thought would make the perfect gift. I wanted to buy something small, something cute for my girlfriends so these perfume samples are perfect! They were neatly packed and sold for a good price so I just had to pick up a few. I picked out the scents for my friends according to their personalities. I rarely wear perfume let alone go perfume shopping so this was something new. Sniffing all these different scents made me sniff a little but it was very fun to pick out the perfumes.
I picked up a couple for myself too. I chose Burberry's 'Brit' and Anna Sui's 'Dolly Girl' for myself. Burberry Brit has a floral and pretty lady-like scent whereas Dolly Girl has a citrusy, fruity, and fun scent :) I'm a fruity and floral scent kinda gal.
|Anna Sui's Dolly Girl! I love the packaging and the bottle. The bottle is shaped into a head of a doll which sounds creepy but it isn't, it's one of the coolest perfume bottles I have ever seen and available at the store.|
|Burberry Brit. Can't wait to try this out! :)|
I also picked up a couple of the famous EOS Chap Balls/ Lip balms. These are not available in my country, at least I think so, so far I've never seen anywhere selling these babies over here in my country. So I had to get these, they are only HKD $30, which is pretty cheap for such amazing lipbalms. I recently got my first one as a present from my best friend, Abby (THANK YOU ABBY, You're the best!), who got it for me from America. I got the Summer Fruits one which smells AMAZING, like peaches and nectarines. So since I already own the Summer Fruits one, I decided to try out the Honeysuckle Honeydew and Strawberry Sorbet flavored/scented ones. I'll probably give one away to my pal though. Glad I found these at the store! :)
I took a trip down to Sasa too and I left the store with only a single item. I got the Dariya Hair Magic Sheets for Forelock. I've seen people wear this (some YouTube beauty gurus use this as well) but for some reason I was a bit skeptical that it'll hold the hair well but I was wrong, this works well and it keeps my hair away from my face and supports it firmly. Each packet comes with 2 sheets which is definitely enough for me, I bought this for the price of HKD $20.
That is all for my Shopping in Hong Kong post, I can't wait to use all my new items from Hong Kong. I'm most excited about giving away the perfumes and trying them out for myself. I'm also very glad to have found such cute hair accessories at Disneyland, I don't have to be a little girl to wear those cute accessories out, it's cool to style your hair with Minnie Mouse hair accessories...very cool ;)
Don't forget to leave me a comment on your favorite Disney movie/show and if you have any Disneyland memories, I'd love to hear about it too! :)
Have a wonderful day!
OH! And I almost forgot, it's finally the first day of December. Happy December to everyone! Countdown to Christmas~
