Hello! My name is Valynn and thanks for dropping by. I named this blog Vanillyn, which is a combination of Vanilla & Valynn. I started this blog since 2012 when I realised that I baked too much and it seems that the right thing to do is by sharing all the great recipes I discovered along my baking journey. So in this space, you will find me ranting mostly on the subject of desserts and travels because I love globetrottering. Is that a word? Anyway, when I travel I love to cafe-hop, eat at where the locals eat, do afternoon tea if time allows, shopping, a bit of nature, strolling in the parks and find interesting yoga classes to attend. I love Japan so I might be sharing more on Japan in this space. I always try to lead a balance lifestyle by making healthier food choices, do yoga regularly and practice self-care. I drink a lot of teas, especially sencha and love reading magazines, cookbooks, wellness books and a bit of novels. I hope that I can entices you in the sweetest way with this space. Feel free to drop me a note to chat further.
