Korea Exclusive Beauty Haul: Innisfree Jeju House, Dear Packer, Osulloc and More

    Seoul is such a shopping haven, especially if you’re into skincare and beauty. I didn’t get to buy much in terms of clothes, because so many of the stores we popped into were selling them in free size, which were too big for me. Wait, or is there a trend in oversized clothing […]

Review: The Kiehl’s Crème de Corps Nurturing Body Washing Cream & Body Moisturiser

    Eczema is so annoying. You never know how you got it in the first place and it never seems to go away no matter what you do. It turns you, often without warning, into this fussy consumer you used to swear you would never be. Alas, you now have to bite your tongue. […]
