This weekend I found the best cupcakes in Tokyo, the REAL DEAL, at Bella's Cupcakes in Shirokane. The shop owner is a cool girl from London, I'm girl-crushing on her big time and I admire what she has done. Her shops reminds me of my beloved Cocoa Locale in Montreal, and being in Bella's made me homesick. I know it's quite silly, but small things that remind me of Montreal, such as cakes and even the autumn weather can feel quite painful when you least expect it, thinking of family and friends back home.
After having a red velvet cupcake for breakfast, I headed to a friend's baby shower party. She is also from Montreal, and to this day she was the only person I could speak québécois with. I admire her for taking the plunge and having a baby in Japan, I know she will do amazingly well. She has the most adorably puppy, a shiba inu breed, and now I'm dying to have a dog. I also met another lovely French Canadian girl, so turns out we're not alone out here in the Tokyo jungle.
I'm feeling quite ill now, maybe because of the changing weather, so I've been ingesting vitamin-heavy drinks, such as organic carrot juice and highly concentrated blueberry juice, drinking lots of water and trying to sleep it off.
I have a fun little getaway planned this weekend, can't wait to share more. It's a place in Japan I have never been to. Can you guess?
