Paris is Always a Good Idea

      I mentioned some time ago that I have an amazing vacation planned for this year and that one of my 2016 New Year Resolutions was to travel abroad. Last year due to starting a new job, I didn't have the chance to travel, but this year I'm so excited that I'll be traveling to Paris! It'll be my first time in Paris, and I have a whole itinerary mapped out.

Product Review: Primera Scholar Tree Antioxidant Toner

      We're (finally) nearing the end of August and I'm absolutely fed up with the hot humid summer temperatures and extremely looking forward to brisk autumn weather! But first, announcements - I had yet again another busy weekend with regards the apartment, so this week there will only be two posts; today's post and another on Wednesday. I finally popped open the Scholar Tree toner by Primera after having it in my stash for the past couple months. Fortunately it's as lovely a toner as it sounds, but unfortunately, it's definitely too heavy for summer.

Summer 2016 Empties II

      I have another round of empties for you all this Friday! I'm surprised that I've been able to use up enough products this summer to do a second empties post - it usually takes me quite a while to finish up any product! This time it's all skincare products, and I already repurchased some of these products as they are year-round favorites of mine, and others I think I will pass on repurchasing.

Product Review: Hera Cell Essence

      As many of you regular readers may know, I'm on a mission to try every essence I can get my hands on! The Hera Cell Essence was on top of my essence list for a long time, and luckily my friend was able to grab me a bottle while she was in Korea and I've been (spoiler alert), loving it ever since! I've only heard good reviews from beauty bloggers, especially those in Korea, that rave about it after using it. Although, it's one of the more unique essences out there in that it doesn't contain any fermented ingredients! Still, since I've been using it it's been doing great things for my skin.

Three Things 8.19.2016

      Happy Friday! Here's to the end of the week in hopes of a fun and relaxing weekend. Besides loving my new apartment and brainstorming all the ideas and possibilities of furnishing the spaces, here are three things I've been enjoying lately. Two of them include new furnishings in the new place! On a side note that I guess could also be the fourth thing I'm enjoying lately, I also just have to mention that one of the biggest things I wanted in my new apartment was to have amazing lighting for photo taking. So lucky and so happy to say that the new apartment has amazing lighting as you will be able to see from the photos! Cheers to the weekend and to not having to chase the dying light like before in the old apartment!

House to Home: Choosing Paint

      Today is super exciting as it's my first real post in my House to Home series! Before moving in two weeks ago, my boyfriend and I decided to tackle on painting the bedroom ourselves. Let me just say, it's not as easy as it looks if you've never painted before (which we hadn't) and all those hours  I wasted watching HGTV only paid off marginally. But, now that I've painted an entire room, I can confidently say it's like riding a bike - learn it once and you'll never forget again (complete with the sore muscles that come with it).

Product Review: Su:m37 Miracle Rose Cleansing Stick

      I'm back to a normal posting schedule this week after moving into my new apartment! I unpacked quite a lot the first weekend and last weekend and although there is still tons of stuff to do and organize, I feel like I've settled in enough to at least give the blog my weekend attention again. Today I'll be reviewing a product that I've had my eye on for forever! The first time I stumbled upon the su:m37 Miracle Rose Cleansing Stick, it was sold out everywhere. When it did eventually come back in stock it was marked up way too much by third party sellers. Finally after going through enough of the cleansers that I already have, I finally bought the cleanser stick to try out for myself.
