I know people love fall, and I'm into it for spooky reasons, but I was not fully prepared for the end of summer. It's still warm here, but it's been raining for days and the cooler weather is making appearances at night. Ugh. This means winter is coming. But I took a few minutes to... Continue Reading →
Look who made an effort today!
Just a quick post to check in and show off the fact that I made an effort today! I got up almost on time and actually did my hair! I only had enough time left over for a 5-minute makeup routine before I had to be in a meeting for work, but still. Hair AND... Continue Reading →
Makeup and candy
Makeup and candy are two of my favorite things. I really think that my love of Halloween blossomed when I learned that the whole point of the day was free candy, and the love of creepy things came way later. I also love Asian beauty companies, like Etude House. Not only do most brands use... Continue Reading →
Review: Mizon Black Snail All in One Cream
I haven't done a review in a long while, but I was using this product this morning and wanted to give you my thoughts about it. I purchased the Mizon Black Snail All in One Cream from Amazon in the fall and I've been using it just about every day since. I was interested in... Continue Reading →

First and foremost is the thought that I often have when using Asian beauty products: how in the hell do companies there make such good products so... Continue Reading →
A few weeks ago when I talked about the Tarte April Fools palette I mentioned that I had placed an order on Hush's website, and I want to tell you about my experience. I've placed two orders from this site at this point and I haven't been disappointed. Both orders shipped either the same day... Continue Reading →
Q & A: Should I use an oil cleanser/cleansing balm?
I get asked for advice a lot. Like, almost constantly. It's cool with me because I know some stuff. I like sharing that knowledge, and I'm always up for making recommendations or just generally talking about beauty stuff. I especially like talking about beauty products and trends that may have escaped the notice of people... Continue Reading →
Review: Cosrx Ultimate Nourishing Rice Overnight Spa Mask
This is a K-beauty mask I've been using for the last few months. In my empties post I talked about a Julep sleep mask and my initial hesitation to put something heavy on my face overnight, and that hesitation applied to this mask as well. My skin isn't sensitive, but there are some things it... Continue Reading →

I've discovered an awesome new (to me... I don't know how long it's been around) site for K-beauty: Peach & Lily. Use this code for $10 off.
