Beauty Addiction: Memebox

Tuesday, November 1st, 2016

beautyproductscopyMy beauty philosophy is “Less is More”. I focus on having a really good diet and work out regimen than spending money on expensive skin care but when I do, I like to look for affordable and effective products that give results. One of my favorite stores to shop for beauty products is the Korean online skin care store called Memebox. Here are five products that I use religiously on my skin to shave 20 years off my face and body (That’s right!). But the important thing to remember is gravity waits for no one and looking younger takes consistent maintenance. In my experience, your diet and daily exercise should be the first priority before skin care. 1) Pure Green Tea Mask 2) Red Serum 3) Pearl Cream 4) Vitamin C serum 5) Sweet Glam Pink Lipstick

5 Things I love this Monday

Monday, October 31st, 2016


Here are five things I love this Monday.

1. I love hot showers. I like to take my time in bath and splash water around like a kid. Until I read this about Scottish showers and start thinking “Hmm…maybe I need to take cold showers instead?”.

2. Have you guys listened to the new movie “Trolls” soundtrack? It’s upbeat, happy and great for dancing!

3. Who knew a $2.00 face mask can do wonders for your face?

4. The app I use to pretend I’m a billionaire? Mezi.

5. I ran out of my iphone battery all the time. Not anymore with Triple C, my favorite charger.

A treat for being a good girl

I hate horror movies

Saturday, October 29th, 2016

halloween2016I have an embarrassing confession to make: I still sleep with lights on. I’m the only one in my family who does this and I also don’t understand how anyone could sleep in total darkness without being scared! The ironic thing is that I’m also very curious about supernatural or paranormal things and I avidly read about ghosts encounters. But the one thing I will never, ever do is watch horror movies. I remembered when I was living at the dorms in college, my roommates decided to put on “The Exorcist” and since it was the most famous scary movie, I decided to watch it. BIG MISTAKE. Not even 10 minutes into the movie, I was checking my pulse to see if I’m still alive while my roommates were laughing! Not at me, but at the movie. I wish I have their sense of humor.

When I watch a movie, I want to feel uplifted and happy. Why would I watch a movie like the “The Ring” where I’m going to have nightmares for a month? Why would I torture myself with disturbing images? What is the point of horror movies? Why people find watching someone killed in extremely graphic gory details or creepy faces entertaining is beyond me.

This Halloween, please spare me the reruns of “The Texas Chain Saw Massacre”. I’d rather be watching musicals.

Why I don’t have any tattoos or piercings

Thursday, October 27th, 2016

tattoosI have no tattoos or piercings on my body. I’ve never been tempted to get one either. They’re just not for me, plus I have a deep fear of needles. However, I’m fascinated by people who willingly go through pain to get huge tattoos. I can understand the allure of them. But I like my body to be untouched and keep it the way it is so the idea of getting something permanent on my body is not attractive to me.

As for piercings, I don’t even have my ears pierced because body mutilation is not really my thing.

This Zara outfit is totally me

Tuesday, October 25th, 2016

zaraSometimes I cringe at clothes on Zara as I feel like they’re trying to dress pregnant women but this time, I’m impressed by this entire outfit because it’s something I would wear head to toe. All black? check. Victorian-inspired blouse with leather like shorts? Check Check.

5 things to read in bed this weekend

Friday, October 21st, 2016


1) Why Growing a Beard Might Actually Land You a Girlfriend – First of all, I do not agree with this article. Maybe because I prefer clean cut guys over guys with beards. Beards make a guy look like a really old man.

2) 46 Rules of Genius – Something that’s worth re-reading over and over.

3) Instagram’s new office makes me feel very, very jealous. (Please hire me!)

4) London Design Festival 2016 in pictures – Get ready to be inspired.

5) Flag is one of my favorite kickstarter projects ever!
