Häagen-Dazs Japonais Vanilla Ice Cream Kinako Kuromitsu

Häagen-Dazs Japonais – Vanilla and Kinako Kuromitsu

This is the second Japonais flavour that Häagen-Dazs Japan have released to date. I previously reviewed the first Häagen-Dazs Japonais last year which featured green tea ice cream and red bean paste.

Revlon Lip Butter Peach Parfait

Revlon Lip Butter in Peach Parfait

These lip butters have been reviewed right, left, and centre by now, but can I just say, I love this! Peach Parfait is such a gorgeous colour – peachy pink laced with gold shimmer and glitter – and it’s so beautifully creamy. One blogger (I really cannot remember who) described it as Orgasm (as in…

Instagram Love

Hello my darling readers, I hope you had a fantastic weekend. It’s a long weekend here in Japan at the moment. Today is 海の日 or Marine Day, a day to celebrate the ocean. I’m taking this opportunity now to shamelessly flog my Instagram account. As you can see, it’s looking a little sad right now and could…

Frozen blueberry yoghurt from a Japanese supermarket

Frozen Yoghurt

Very quick post today as I am feeling very lazy and lethargic. It’s just getting hotter and hotter since typhoon Neoguri made its way painfully slowly across Japan, and my determination not to use the air conditioning at home until August is waning with every passing day. So far I’ve been able to manage by just…
