Tokyo Eats : Afternoon Tea TEA STAND Cafe

AFTERNOON TEA is a popular zakka [housewares] store in Japan. They carry some of the cutest things including a liberty collab collection. If you are ever in Japan, you should definitely check them out.

They have cafes as well but its main focus is usually cake etc [there is one in Taipei too]
Lately they opened a starbucks-esque cafe where the focus is tea.

You order at the counter [i told you, starbucks-esque]

Cakes in the counter though not as fancy as the ones served at their usual cafes.

What we ordered

Scones [plain and orange]
The orange one is season limited but i think it doesnt taste that different from the plain version XD
Not the most amazing scone i ever had but its pretty decent.

Apple and Ginger Mojito Sparkling Tea Soda [No alcohol]
Limited edition. The earl grey used in it is amazing.

Frozen Apple Pie Tea
This tastes EXACTLY like liquid apple pie. Its kinda scary lol. I dont like overly sweet things so this isnt for me but my husband enjoyed this a lot.

I enjoy cafes a lot. Especially now that its summer. I detest the heat so much i dont even want to shop [omg!]. The cafe is perfect for me. Though i have started drinking coffee again [after 16 years], i still enjoy a good cup of tea. This place is perfect.

Makeup Tutorial : Even out your eyelids with eyeliner (No glue or tape)

*Note this is my first lame attempt at a makeup tutorial of sorts so please bear with me whilst i work out how this is to be done.

A few days ago, a friend of mine approached me with a small makeup question. She had one single (mono) eyelid and the other eye had a double eyelid. She asked me if there was a way to “rectify” this issue with makeup since she had difficulty evening them out and did not want to use glue or tape nor did she want to get eyelid surgery done.

This was kinda interesting to me as i have another friend in the same situation so i thought about how best to “fix” it and this is my take on it.

I decided to even it out by using eyeliner and drawing a fake double eyelid crease in
I do have double eyelids in both eyes but they are not very deep and curve in at the outer corners of my eyes so by drawing the line in, i was able to give them the illusion of creasing further outwards (almost parallel). It makes my eyes appear larger ( so i think XD)
