Weekend funtimes!  
Yesterday, I went in to Tokyo to do some "errands" (read as: fun shopping), and I was successful on all counts! I was exhausted when I got back, but it was totally worth it for shop photos, clothes, concert accessories, and a new bag!

First up we hit the Johnny's shop! There had been new Marius photos for a while, and new JUMP photos from Chau# came out recently, so I had been excited to go! Luckily, the shop was totally empty on a non-concert weekend, so we got in and out really quickly~

We also shopped around for some member colour goods on Takeshita~ Claire's, Paris Kids, Wego, and the other stores there might be aimed at teenagers, but they do have a good selection of things in bold colours! We were laughing at ourselves at the checkout because it was so obvious what we were doing. |D; My checkout was all blue, and yomimashou's was all lime green |D;

I also bought some cute shoe innersoles and cheapie earrings at Claire's~

After that, we headed to the Ikebukuro Parco to hit Liz Lisa! I had gotten postcards for 40% off, and I'm really happy with what I was able to get for almost half price! I got a top, a skirt that I had been wanting, and a really, really comfortable pair of sandals (they come with flowers that can be removed), and a necklace. I also got a folding fan as a promotional item (I forgot to put it in the picture, oops)~

Last up, we went to Samantha Vega! I'd really been wanting a bag from there, and the shopkeeper was so nice. I ended up picking one I'd been looking at online, and I really like it! It even has a pocket in the bottom so that you can put your IC card in there and swipe out of trains without opening your bag. How cool is that?!

Today, I got to relax~ I've been enjoying the reports from Waku-Waku Gakkou, including this one:
Inoo:I won't lose to the likes of Arashi! (self-satisfied)
Arashi:Oi! Who said that! (laughing)
Inoo:Arioka did!!
Arioka:What?! Inoo did!! Iio!!!!
Jun:Oi, Iio!!!!!
Oh, man, I can't even wait for Waku-Waku in Tokyo. XD;; I hope Inoo gets to do as much as he seemed to get to do in Osaka! He also said that in 10 years he wanted to have a show called "Ino-san" ahaha. How cute is he.
Current Mood: relaxedrelaxed
Current Music: Hey! Say! JUMP//Chau#

Thank you! And I definitely recommend it! I also saw a bag at Liz Lisa with side pockets, but not any that were backpack style. It seems like side pockets aren't really the trend right now.

Sigh. Why, fashion T_T they're so useful. Ah well, just have to keep looking, I guess. Thanks for always keeping an eye out for me!

Honestly I've pretty much only ever seen it on that one style of bag from Olive, so it might be better to start looking at alternatives, like a wristlet for your phone when you're using it as a backpack and not carrying another bag. In my experience, the only time I tend to use those bags in backpack form is when I'm traveling or going to a con, and when I'm going to a con I have my con tote, also, which I can put my phone in for easy access. Lots of companies are currently selling phone wristlets (often also with a space for a pass case or something), so it might be worth looking into since I don't know if you're going to find everything you want in a bag any time soon.

Yeah, that's definitely true. I'd also take even like, a back zip pocket or something - that's what I have on my winter purse and it worked out ok. Basically something so that I don't have to open and dig through the main part of my purse to find my phone each time >> I also want to find a pass case for my suica so I don't have to dig out my wallet for each train, but that's a separate search |D and I want them to at least not clash so I kind of need to find the purse first.

Paris Kids and Wego is my favorite shops in Takeshita -- aside from the JE shop of course!

They're really great for concert stuff! I'm glad I was able to find so much blue stuff, ahaha.

Arashi is going to call him "Iio" for the rest of his life lol.

So much shopping success~ I really love the purse, and it had even more convenient things than we realized XD I'm really happy that you found those sandals, too~
