The Official "List of Things Visitors Can Bring From The US in Exchange for Lodging"

  1. Mascara. Preferably the cool ones with the colored plastic brush, either by Cover Girl or Max Factor (in black/brown, please). This stuff costs like $7 at drugstores in the States, and nearly $20 here. Bring LOTS. Neutrogena's Clean Lash Tint will also do.
  2. Method cleaning wipes. They're like $3 or $4 at Target, and make cleaning so ridiculously easy. Any scent is fine. The specialty stainless steel wipes are also highly appreciated. (we've gotten some bottles of these, but could always use more for future stock)
  3. Clinique Super City Block SPF 25. Costs twice as much here. Ridiculous, I tell you.
  4. Scrap-booking supplies. I don't even care what, really, just bring me pretty paper and nice stickers and stuff. I'll figure out what to do with them.
  5. Canned pumpkin puree. Zach will love you for this.
  6. A Method omop started kit, for wood floors. Some extra sweeping cloths would also be nice. I'm hoping these can also be found at Target. I'm also hoping they'll reduce the amount of killer dust bunnies that continuously threaten to take over our house.
More items to come as I think of them.


  1. i'll keep that in mind for when i visit! i'm pretty sure canned pumpkin is tough to mail, but mebbe the other stuff could be arranged!

  2. I read your post and decided I should probably try these Method Stainless Steel wipes. I really like them, so thanks for the tip even though that's not how you intended it to work. Seriously, all your talk about "Method", and I had no idea what you were talking about. I think I am getting it now.

  3. Alright, this is good...I'm going to London Friday and I planned to take and leave some things, but I have no idea what I should take, so I'm probably going to have a lot of extra space. Maybe I'll start with the pumpkin, since that does look like the hardest to mail...

    Xai-Xai spent the rest of last night and today looking as cute as felinely possible...I think she knew she had some work to do on her image :)

    Hahaha, my mum used to send me things for the first 2 years but after she didn't bother to do anymore and I also didn't bother myself to bother her anymore.

    You will get used to the high price here, the fact is, salary here is also very high. Well, if by chance my friends go to Hong Kong, I will still ask them to bring me some face cream due to the fact that here is double more expensive.

  5. I will definitely pack you some mascara when I come out and a few method products

    I just got the mop system and it's so cool - you squeeze the cleaner right on the floor and then mop. No bucket!
