Red Velvet Vixen at Cupcakes by Sonja

I looove sweets! Chocolate, ice cream, cakes -you name it! I was raised to be a sweet tooth! This quality of mine has gotten me to explore various food outlets. And when I say explore, I mean going there for the sake of... just eating. 


For this entry, I will share to you my passion for cupcakes. Cupcakes by Sonja has the best of this soft and tasty treat. Unfortunately for me, it is located in Serendra Piazza in Fort Bonifacio. It is way too far from where I'm at. Ah well, good food is worth the long wait and travel. (^_^)


It was just yesterday when I visited the store. Being a Saturday, the place was literally crowded by fellow cupcake patrons. But the array of yummy and colorful cupcakes on display will let you forget about the discomforts of the crowd. The store was based on the traditional cupcake store look: blue and pink striped wallpaper, chalkboard menu, and a cute cupboard display. 


The names of the cupcakes were as creative as their looks. There were Vanilla Sunshine, Lemon Drop, Chocolate Surprise, and a lot more. Their selection was so good that it was hard for me to choose. I was on queue for an order and most of the customers that came before me ordered this one cupcake that stood above all: the Red Velvet Vixen. 


That made my choice then. The cupcake, true to its name, was red. It was topped with a tasty cream cheese frosting and sprinkled with a dash of cocoa. I wondered what it tasted like. Being in red, I couldn't make it out. The cream cheese frosting had the feeling of mini sugar granules on every my every bite. Yum! 


The Red Velvet Vixen: Creativity on every bite! 
On the menu was written: Red Velvet Vixen: Traditional Southern Red Velvet cupcake made with Belgian cocoa and topped with luscious cream cheese icing. 


Ah so it was chocolate flavored after all! The Red Velvet Vixen completed my saccharine cravings for the day. On top of that, a portion of the price is donated to Red Cross. The cupcake is priced at PhP 75 (as of writing). What a great feeling! The sweet cupcake made me happy body and soul.


Cupcakes by Sonja has exceeded my expectations.  I will surely come back for more.

A Full Moon: My Second Fanfiction is Here!

Heya Dearies!  Following my first fanfiction The Path of The Unspecialized (The King's Avatar Fanfic) , which was posted in Webnovel, m y next story is now ready to be published! I'm very excited to share this with you. One of the video games that I have played for a very long time is The Sims. Started around 19 years ago, thereabouts. Until now, I don't get tired of creating Sims and building houses. Though yes, there have been times where I was disappointed at how buggy the game is... but yeah, it hasn't stopped me from playing the game. Hahaha~ The Sims is a life simulation and oftentimes, I create stories for my sims. What would they look like? How would they start out? Where would they live? With The Sims 4: Vampires game pack came Caleb Vatore, who became my favorite pre-made sim. I would pair him up with a sim of my own.  And in the process of playing, I eventually got inspired to write down how their story would go in my version of The Sims 4 world. So p r

[Review] Gluta-C Intense Whitening Body Scrub

Gluta-C Intense Whitening Body Scrub is a product that impressed me on my first try. Mostly, when I review beauty products, I use it at least a week to see the effects and results on my skin. I never thought that a body scrub can make me go "wow!" instantly! I got this from my Gluta-C Sample Room haul . And I used it the day after I got it. I was that excited!  This product is packaged in a tub. It is a soft, viscous, and grainy cream. The smell is nice, too! It has a cool perfume scent.  120g tub of Gluta-C Body Scrub This is how I used this: I wet my skin and then took an ample amount of the scrub and then applied it using circular motions. Afterwards, I put liquid body wash on a loofah then rubbed on my skin. I could feel the small grains from the scrub gently exfoliating my skin. I love the combination it does with the body wash. The bubbles and the foam make it comfortable! All the while, I know that my skin is thoroughly cleansed!  Here is the surprise!

[Food Review] Everyday Tous Les Jours

My addiction with Tous les Jours started when my cousin brought home a whole load of breads from the said bakery. She recommended that their products are of high quality, while handing me their bestseller aptly called as "Sweet Black Rice Bread with Cream Cheese". Upon taking my first bite, I couldn't stop eating it up until the last piece. With that inspiration, I decided to go visit one of their stores for a closer look.  I went to their branch in SM North. The store is located in The Block near SM Hypermarket. Saturated with yellow lights and wooden furniture, Tous Les Jours had the french bakery/coffee shop aura.

Following my cousin's recommendation, I bought the one with cream cheese filling. However, I had a dilemma which one to choose as it has two variants. The one with black sesame? or plain
