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 […]

My Travel Beauty Essentials: Makeup Edition

    We’re in Jeju today, and what a wonderful time to be here! Being overseas for a short time means you should always only have with you your travel beauty essentials, things that you would naturally reach out for when time allows for it. I’ve brought along some of mine, and thought it would be nice […]

My Travel Beauty Essentials: Skincare Edition

    Hello from the sunny land of South Korea! It’s my third time here in Seoul, but this time I’m visiting Busan and Jeju Island for the first time as well and I can’t wait. It’s also my first time in Korea in the summer, and my skincare routine has since changed. Here are […]

Rave & Review: The Mirenesse Forbidden Ink Auto Lip Liner Duet in Crazy Coco

    So in between preparing for lectures, minding my own business (literally), catching up on some Neil Gaiman (Any fans out there?), napping, Nordstrom-ing and Pilates, I’ve also been trying my very best to find out where I can buy more of this product.

In fact, it’s recommended for pregnant women to help prevent the formation of stretch marks because it improves the elasticity of skin. To […]

Review: The PHB Ethical Beauty Skin Repair Gel with Aloe & Lavender

    It wasn’t only yesterday that I became quite aware of skin-loving products that were made ethically and contained ingredients that weren’t doubtful. In the past 1-2 years, the skin on my calves seemed to have become more sensitive than it had always been, and I started developing eczema patches here and there.

New on the Beauty Counter: The Guerlain Météorites Base in its Pink Perfection

    The long weekend that just passed gave us some time to rearrange our furniture at home, and what better time than this to prop up my art work of La Petite Robe Noire? I know it’s not fantastic on canvas but she has a tutu skirt, and that’s all that matters.   I’m not […]
