Mariage Frères Shinjuku

Hello dear readers! How are you?

The other weekend I had tea at Mariage Frères in Shinjuku.

  
When I posted this picture on Facebook and Instagram some people were fooled into thinking I was in Paris! Actually I haven’t been abroad for almost a year and a half, so I’m itching to travel again soon.

  
I had a scone and a financier, accompanied by my favourite Earl Grey French Blue tea. I really liked the cinnamon-y jam that came with the scone! It was actually flavoured with the same tea that my friend had, I can’t remember the name though….

Thanks for reading and see you again soon!

Relaxing Day Around Tokyo

Hello dear readers! How are you? Happy International Lolita Day! .

ごきげんよう!サフィラです。

I am back in England for a while at the moment, but just before I left Tokyo I had a nice day eating lots of good food and meeting up with lovely people.

今イギリスでバカンスをしています。イギリスに帰る前、色々な食べ物を食べたいと思っていました。

I had a great big lunch at my local family restaurant. It included some of my favourites like soba, tempura, chawamushi and warabi mochi.

お家に近いファミレスで、大きい昼ご飯を食べました。私の大好きなおそば、天ぷら、わらび餅を食べました。とても嬉しかったです!

At long last I sampled the Haagen-Dazs rose ice cream. It was very nice but it tasted more of strawberry than rose to me.

ローズのアイスクリームを食べてみました。

The best part was the sweet jellyish topping!

ローズより苺の味がしましたが、美味しかったです。

This was my outfit. I got the vintage dress recently in Koenji, in a shop where everything is 700yen! My socks are Jane Marple, and I found those for 100yen in a junk shop in Shimokitazawa.

あの日のコーデでございます。ワンピは高円寺の古着屋さんで買いました。靴下はジェーンです。ファッションテーマはクラシカルです。

It was certainly a bargain outfit! I wore another special item, this corsage from Japanese indie brand Lilga. It’s so detailed and colourful, I love it!

大好きなリルガのコサージュをつけました。
