2016 Holiday Gift Guide: K-Beauty Gift Sets for Beauty Lovers in Their 20s and 30s

Happy Black Friday and welcome back to the 2016 Holiday Gift Guide series, hosted by me and my friend Christina Hello! In our first installments, I gave my skincare gift recommendations for Asian beauty product beginners, while Christina focused on K-beauty makeup intro sets.

#Enabled: May Skincare Purchases and the Stories Behind Them (aka Shopping Habits of a Beauty Blogger)

As a beauty blogger, I make a lot of skincare purchases. Many more, I imagine, than a typical non-blogger beauty consumer would. We've talked a bit about blogger shopping habits here and there on the Snailcast, and I'm sure I've mentioned mine in passing elsewhere, but I don't think I've ever sat down and walked [...]

Today I went for light lavender eyes and lavender blush to liven up a black T-shirt on a spring day. I call this look "I used a very light [...]

Review: Banila Co Miss Flower & Mr Honey Hydrogel Mask

Let me just say up front that I love these masks so much they make me want to pollinate something. If you know what I mean. My first five-pack of Banila Co Miss Flower & Mr Honey hydrogel masks was the result of a small impulse haul from the Memebox site--the same haul that got [...]

Review: DD’ell Extra Vitalizing Serum

The thing about skin care is that once you've got a good routine in place, it's difficult to justify experimentation and variety for variety's sake (apart from masks, of course). Why should I seek out something new if I don't feel the need for it in my routine? That's why I'm always grateful when something [...]
