Getting Contacts in Korea is Freaken’ Cool

Reason number #548 of why I love Korea – they are FAAAAAAST about certain things. Like getting contacts. This helps for those sudden moments when you want to do something “reckless” on a Saturday morning …. and changing my eye color was as good as it got ^_^

Alluring to my Nose and Wallet

Jodi and I happened to go into one of the perfumes stores in downtown, around the corner from Buy the Book and Mr. Pizza.

I had been in need of my favorite perfume, Salvatore Ferregamo’s Incanto Heaven. We went into the store and I was able to try out the others in his line. I finally settled for trying a new one, his Incanto Charms.

The price threw me off a little, pretty close to the prices in America. While I battled between splurging, the girl next to me had selected her scent. Then she did something amazing! She chose these small empty tubes from the countertop and had the salesperson fill it with the perfume. Her would be $50 purchase was reduced to a mere $20!

So there you have, it is even better than getting the bootleg versions off the streets of Manhattan. You can get the real legit perfume for a mere $20 for 20ml!

Perfect size!

Then Jodi found Sephora’s website that let’s you know what other perfumes you may enjoy based on your fav.
