Sunkus conbini, and Lip Service Collaboration

Hi! How are you today? I am busy hehe^^ Today I will be leaving early to meet up with Kazumi in Shibuya so I don't have too much time to write a long post today. I've been going to a lot of Matsuri recently, and I just love that! I think photographing matsuri, and especially food stalls is my favorite thing to do in Japan.

I don't think I've ever mentioned it before, but you can see all my Japan photos at my Picasa webgallery. Everything is up to date, so you can see my photos from the past few days, even before I write about them here haha^^

Lip Service display in Sunkus

Anyway, yesterday while I was walking around I was keeping my eye open for an Sunkus conbini since Mitsu introduced the awesome Lip Service collaboration they are currently doing on her blog. I think, I am low on cash always, and this would be a great way to get my hands on some Lip Service goods hehe^^

And this being Japan, I didn't have to go to long before I did find a Sunkus hehe. Sunkus's name doesn't mean anything per se, however when you say it it sound like how a Japanese person would say "Thank You" or so I've heard haha. When I say it it just sounds like "Sun Cuss" haha! Anyhow, I found the Lip Service display front and center!

I picked out the mint green shu shu with Lip Service written all over it in script. I thought it was the cutest, although the pink and purple tulle shu shu was a close second. But what cinched it for me was the Lip Service logo, if you are going to buy brand why not show it? haha.

Which Lip ServicexSunkus item do you like best? (this answer will be important later hopefully^^)

While I was there I also bought a Lipton Limone Tea drink because it came with a sweets strap! I have been waiting years to get a free sweets strap from Lipton. They have collaborations several times a year with big name sweets companies to make really cute straps. I couldn't pass up that chance hehe.

8tokyo always has great coverage on drink freebies, check out their collection, especially the Lipton collaboration freebies^^

I also took some photos of sweet food items in the conbini so I will share those with you before I sign off. When you see photos like these maybe you can see why it's so hard to diet in Japan! haha, but I've been doing very well. I tell myself "even Japanese diet food is new to me!" ^^ I hope you enjoyed this short post! hehe^^
