Happy Turn Rare Cheesecake

Happy Turn – Rare Cheesecake

Hello Darlings, I hope you’ve all been doing wonderfully. It’s been rather cold and dreary today, and I’ve just started to binge-watch “How To Get Away With Murder.” I wasn’t hooked from the first episode, but I feel involved now, and will definitely keep watching to see how things pan out. Prince William has been…

PARM Mango and Vanilla ice cream

PARM Mango and Vanilla Ice Cream

We are now about halfway through rainy season here in Tokyo. I definitely feel like this year has been a lot more exciting in this respect with surprise thunderstorms and epic downpours – I thought the thunder was about to land on my head this afternoon (not very nice, especially since I really don’t like…

Japan Kit Kat

Orange Peel Flavoured Kit Kat

It’s probably safe to say that she will only stop when she has achieved world domination. I consider myself…

Spring is… here? Häagen-Dazs Sakura Ice Cream

It also seems that Häagen-Dazs turns 30 this year (in Japan at least, perhaps) – how exciting! This proved to be a little tub of plain…

Royce’ Matcha Ice Dessert

I have been eyeing this temptation for a while now, and finally decided to treat myself. I’ve been craving all things sweet recently, and this was just perfect. Royce’ is a Japanese chocolate manufacturing company based in Sapporo, Hokkaido. It makes a number of chocolate goodies, and also just beautiful chocolate covered crisps – mmmmm.…
