Cath’s Cafe

I went to Jiyūgaoaka 自由が丘 (a neighborhood in southern Meguro, Tokyo) a few days ago to buy some Cherry Blossom baking ingredients at my favorite shop Cuoca (next on the blog). It’s been my yearly habit to make some spring inspired sweets so I was sooo excited on my way, thinking of new recipes and ideas. Usually, before I go straight to Cuoca, I stop by at Cath Kidston shop for inspiration. I always feel happy and inspired whenever I see Cath Kidston’s beautiful stuff (Yes, CK big fan here!) ♡ I love everything about their chic styles and designs. It actually doubled my excitement when I first found out that they even have a café, “Cath’s Cafe”. ♡ There are only two Cath’s Cafes here in Japan. This branch in Tokyo and the other one in Fujisawa, Kanagawa. Here are some photos I took from my iPhone… It was so cold that day so I ordered hot cafe latte and mini chocolate chip scone ♡ Sooo good! They made me feel satisfied. Delicious food / treats make me genuinely happy! #fact …

LUSH and Homemade Matcha Face Mask

It is a fairly well-known fact that the skin becomes dry during the winters. Leaving your skin feeling tight, rough, and itchy. Skin gets dry because the harsh wind and cold weather irritate it, and the lack of humidity in the air causes it to lose moisture rapidly. As we age, winter dryness becomes worse because the natural oil layer in our skin is depleted. These face masks were truly heaven-sent. I love all Lush face masks, but this Oatifix is definitely my numero uno. I immediately have baby soft skin after using it. ♡ It smells so delicious (like baked goods)…it seriously makes me want to eat it every time I use it! lol It just smells so absolutely amazing and leaves my wintery skin feeling very moisturized, hydrated and brighter. Anyway, I use this mask every other day and Love Lettuce twice a week. They both give my face a nice glow.                                                                       …
