Kanda Myojin - Shichi Go San

Kanda Myojin

A couple of weekends ago a friend invited me to see his friend do an uber cool martial arts demonstration at Kanda Myojin. Apparently the shrine is 1,270 years old, but of course it has had to be rebuilt several times in that time due to earthquakes and fires and the like. It is tucked…

Azuki Bean Sandwich Kit Kat from Nagoya

Azuki Bean Sandwich Kit Kat

This is a lovely souvenir that I was given recently – an Azuki Bean Sandwich flavour Kit Kat from Nagoya. Needless to say, it was gorgeous! For whatever reason, azuki bean paste on toast is super popular in Aichi prefecture, the capital of which is Nagoya, hence this Kit Kat flavour. I hope you are…

Orly Country Club Khaki

I recently saw a friend sporting taupe nails and couldn’t get over how gorgeous they were, not to mention perfect for Autumn-Winter and lazy days.

Lotte Yukimi Daifuku Chocolate and Cookie

Yukimi Daifuku – Chocolate and Cookie

I’m madly in love with these mochi ice cream type treats whether by Lotte or just the ones by 7 Eleven. This new Chocolate & Cookie version is no exception – cute and yummy, you can’t really go wrong! I hope you’ve all had a marvellous weekend. We’re just awaiting the typhoon. At the time…

Green Tea Happy Turn

Happy Turn Green Tea

The packaging of this seasonal version is quite gorgeous and reflects the 大人の抹茶味 – the adult green tea flavour. I reviewed the concept of Happy Turns, and indeed the snacks themselves here so I won’t talk about them very much in this post, except to say that this version is just as yummy as the previous…

Mavala 157 Blush Pink

Mavala Blush Pink Nail Varnish Review

Around August time, I really wanted to have a pale pink nail varnish in my collection. My collection is not as extensive as some people, but I do have enough that I feel a bit wasteful if I keep on buying new bottles. I really really wanted a pale pink though. One of the main…

Häagen-Dazs Japanese Chestnut Ice Cream

Häagen-Dazs Japanese Chestnut (Waguri)

Some more lovely Häagen-Dazs food porn for you today, darlings. Waguri, or Japanese chestnut, is one of their more simple flavours, but it’s nice to go with something like this every now and then. It was quite nice, not my favourite, but pretty yummy. Nothing screams autumn more than chestnuts, sweet potatoes, and pumpkin so I’m…
