The Smile

A week has already gone by since the first day back to classes and I am in awe at the speed in which time has been rushing past me. Tokyo weather has been quite wet the last couple of days and rather cold despite the cherry blossoms blooming everywhere that's supposed to signfy the start of warmth and spring.

I have Spanish first period 4 days a week and the one day that I don't, aka Wednesday, I forgot that I didn't have to wake up ridiculously early to get ready. At least I had a few hours to myself.

The best thing this week by far was catching up with friends again. It's quite rare to catch all of us together, well actually we're missing one person, but anyway, we're all so busy all the time, so I could not have been happier for the random get together.

予定が入っていなかった4人で新宿のThe Smileというお店にハンバーガーを食べに行ってきました。座って、ハンバーガーを食べて、喋っていただけなのに、本当に楽しくて時間があっという間に過ぎてしまいました。わたしは一限あるからちょっと早めに帰ろうと思っていたのですが、たまにはいっかと思い、デザートを頼み少し長めに残りました。
The four of us who were free went to a burger joint called The Smile in Shinjuku. We literally just ate our burgers and talked but time just flew on by. I got a baked apple Gorgonzola burger - sounds pretty out there but it was a preeeety awesome burger.
I'm kind of a burger addict so when I eat one burger, I crave another one until I satisfy my needs; basically, it's an endless cycle. I would definitely have to go with a big fat, juicy burger with extra crispy fries and cheesecake for my last meal. Throw in a vanilla milkshake and I would be the happiest girl in the world.

今日は用事でOpéraの方に行ってきました。いつもならちょっと早く出て、散歩しながら行こうかなとも思うのですが、今日はたまたま大雨。傘の上手な使い方をいまいち理解していないというか下手なわたしは、正直さしていてあまり意味がなかった様な気がします。笑 さすがに歩くのはちょっと大変だなと思ったので、今回はメトロⓂ️を使うことにしました。 帰りにも少しだけ入ったGalerie Lafayetteを一周してきました。高級ブランドがたくさんあり、さすがに買い物はできませんでしたが、見ているだけでも楽しい空間でした。靴のコーナーを撮り忘れてしまったことがちょっと悔しいです。ちょっと変わった形や色のものからクラシックな形のものまでたくさんあって、モール全体をわたしのウォークインクローゼットにしたいくらいでした。

前回入れなかったユニクロ。 ちょ〜オシャレでした。 お店のレイアウト、ディスプレー全てがなんだか高級感たっぷりでした。 値段も日本より少し高め?のような気もしました。


Exploring Paris Solo

One of the reasons why I really love Paris is that it's a great place to be for soloist like me. I prefer wandering alone at my own pace, although having company is great as well. Either way, exploring a city alone has really allowed me to get in touch with myself and make my own discoveries and meet new people. It was just one of those days when my insides were nudging me to get out and that is exactly what I did.
I've always wanted to brunch at Angelina and thought, why not just go? I took a trip down to Rue Rivoli and ordered the brunch best. Aaaaa the famous chocolat chaud was just as smooth and decadent as I had heard it was. It was like drinking a melted chocolate bar.

The Post I Forgot to Upload Last Week

I was near Opera today for a commitment and while I would usually leave a little early so that I could walk to my destination, I decided otherwise when I saw that it was pouring rain. I took the Metro for the first time in a while. I obviously brought an umbrella with me but I always question whether I need it or not since I somehow get wet anyways. I stopped by Galerie Lafayette to look around. All the high end products are not too friendly for my budget but the mall is like one big art exhibit that you can enjoy just strolling around in.

Stepped into the UNIQLO that I was too sccared to walk into last time and was in awe at how chic everything looked. There was a totally different atmosphere to the ones I am used to in Japan. I think the prices were also a tad bit higher.

Talk soon!
