[Osaka - Dotonbori] Dotonbori at Night - Osaka's Eat Street

Dotonbori in Osaka is the quintessential Osaka view.
If you're planning on going to Osaka, make sure you stop by to have your picture with the Glico Running Man. It's a tourist must-do.

It is pretty crowded here pretty much all day long, but sometimes you are lucky and are able to get there when there are few tourists to get a good shot.

Throughout the year, they decorate the river that flows below the bridge. During the winter, there are lighted snowflakes and strings of lights over the river.

After you cross over the bridge, you get to the main eating and shopping street. You'll see a Forever 21 and H&M. I would definitely recommend stopping here during the sale season around the end of December to the beginning of January. 
When you walk down this street, you see the famous larger-than-life animal motifs. Like the crab pictured above and also the takoyaki octopus at Dotonbori Kukuru Honten, where I recommend you get your takoyaki (octopus balls) fix.

As I was wandering around, I found this fake Glico man with a Santa suit.
Maybe I should have stopped here and had my picture taken for next year's holiday card!?

[Skincare Review] Head-to-Head Test: Estee Lauder Advanced Night Repair vs. La Mer The Concentrate

 As promised, here is my blog comparing the Estee Lauder Advanced Night Repair vs. the La Mer The Concentrate. FTC disclaimer: I was sent both of these items for free in exchange for my full and honest review. I tried to be as scientific as humanly possible. I had a blinded reviewer (my mom) who was actually unaware I was even doing a skincare test, so her opinion is completely blinded and she tried really hard to give a full and honest review of differences she noticed. I did this for 2 weeks. In the 14 days before the test, I was testing out the Estee Lauder ANP product in exchange for my review. I had enough product left (and actually received a second sample to test). My nighttime skincare routine was the same as usual. 1) DHC Cleansing Oil - Buy from YesStyle | Buy from Amazon 2) Micellar Water (for eye makeup) 3) Rosette Cleansing Paste Sea Clay Smooth - Buy From YesStyle  | Buy from Amazon I used my PMD Clean (from CAUSEBOX) to wash my face.
