Vanilla Sunshine on a Cloudy Day

My Vanilla Sunshine
"I've got Vanilla Sunshine on a cloudy day." That song played in my mind when I saw my Vanilla Sunshine cupcake served elegantly on my table. What coincidence since it was a cloudy day too!


I had the chance to drop by Serendra last June 28 for the BDJ Get Gorgeous event. After the workshop, I went to Cupcakes by Sonja to have taste of some of their great creations. 


As always, numerous creative cupcakes were in line at the store. All of them looked sumptuous and sported unique names. I had a hard time choosing which one to buy. I saw Red Velvet Vixen, and remembered how unforgettable that was! However, I wanted to try a new variant this time. 


With the suggestion of the crew girl named April, I bought Vanilla Sunshine. According to her, it is also one of their bestsellers. I can attest to that! I saw mugs and tumblers on display with Vanilla Sunshine print! 


Few minutes later, April served my cupcake with pink frosting, though I also saw blue and brown colored frosting in the counter. I am not sure if they tasted different from each other. But no worries! I like pink! 


Vanilla Sunshine's taste reminded me of my mom's homemade cakes! It was the classic cupcake of all sorts -simple but outstanding among the others. The flavor has the hint of vanilla in the cake mixture. The sweet sugary frosting was very soft and there are no traces of hard sugar forming in it. Its taste was close to bubblegum and peppermint. I think the mint flavor came from the white sprinkles. However, the sweetness of sugar still overpowers everything. Overall, the cake is not sweet but the frosting offsets it. 


I enjoyed every moment of the cupcake! It was yummy and too cute to be eaten! It was very nostalgic! This place really feels like home! 


Vanilla Sunshine costs PhP54 (as of writing).

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
