A Handful of K-Beauty Masks

A few months ago, I hauled quite a lot of beauty products which included a total of five sheet mask singles hence the title. Today, I am back to give you my mini reviews of them. I was going to call them first impressions but to be honest, I think my opinions will be a little too descriptive to call it that. Also, in my experience, I have never had a differing opinion from the first, when I tried the same sheet mask again. If in the future, I come across more K-beauty sheet mask singles, then I will make this into a reoccurring series. 🙂 Let’s begin, shall we? TONYMOLY I’m Real Sheet Masks in ‘Rice’: This is technically not my first time trying out Tonymoly masks, but it is my first time trying one from the I’m Real line. The fit for me was generally good as are the hole placements; however, the area between the nose and lips is too wide therefore covering up most of my upper-lip! There are slits too that …

Why Blogging Will Always Have a Place Above YouTube

In truth, I have watched YouTube longer than I have been reading blogs and occupying my own combined. However my disinterest in YouTube (with the exception of things like music videos, trailers, snippets of TV talk shows which I guess, technically don’t count) has been growing by the day. If anything, 2017 YouTube was quite the step backwards, at least for me – the shadiness, the slander, the multiple copies…I really could go on. Gone are those days of 2004/05 funny videos (actual funny content) that we could share. Gone are those days of 2008/09 how-to/beauty videos that was simple with no unnecessary drama. Unfiltered, minimal editing (but still effective) with a relatable attitude. Nowadays, I find myself not being able to relate. Is it just me? If you know the YouTube drama that started 2018, then you know. If you don’t know, then maybe do some research (it won’t be hard to find, it really went global and there are response videos all over YouTube too). Apparently there has been other drama too in the beauty …

December Monthly Favourites ft. LUSH, DIOR and Maybelline!

The last Favourites instalment of 2017 has come late but it is here! Not too many favourites for this month which I know is a bit strange because it’s supposed to be all festive and fancy but honestly, I was very au naturel throughout the month. I also didn’t try anything majorly new but I’ll be sure to have some new things to show you next month. 🙂 Featured in this post: LUSH Pink Peppermint Foot Lotion LUSH Oaty Creamy Dreamy Shower Cream DIOR Miss Dior Eau de Parfum Maybelline Age Rewind Concealer in ‘Light’ Because This Is my First Life (K-drama) Feet is weird to talk about but let’s do it: I know. How is it that I’m talking about a foot lotion on my blog? Why can’t I just use regular lotion for my feet? (Damn you marketing.) I bought LUSH Pink Peppermint Foot Lotion along with a foot mask at a time when my feet were really dry of which, if you have ever experienced this, it can be quite an uncomfortable experience and …

Happy New Year! + Blogging Goals

I hope everyone enjoyed the holidays! I don’t typically celebrate Christmas (although I do buy gifts for close friends), however it’s a wonderful time of the year to be with the people you love the most, and to close out what can be an exhaustive, yet rewarding, year. Likewise, it’s nice to open the year again with the ones you love too! 😘 I wasn’t really going to do a New Year’s Resolutions post as such however 2017 was such a good year for me blog-wise, that I thought that at least I could make mini-goals in this area. Going forward, I have plans for new and more challenging content. 🙂 I have dropped the idea of New Year’s Resolutions a while ago;  particularly the ‘New Year New Me’ mantra which as soon as it’s January, is bombarded at you online and offline. Instead, I like to keep to making short-term goals in order to reach a bigger goal. I also despise the idea of waiting till New Year to make a goal or to do …
