Gym Essentials – My Updated Skincare Routines

OMG I can’t even believe that I’m writing a new post. It feels SO good to be back. WHEEEEEE!

I’ve made it to Phuket, and I’ve been here almost 3 weeks. Everything with the move was just as smooth as it could be. Our apartment is cute, our landlord is super sweet, and overall, everyone in Thailand has been super duper friendly! I think it helps that we live far away from all the tourist traps. Sophia is settling in nicely, I’ve found a nail salon (IMPORTANT, although I miss my girls in Vietnam), and I’ve started a crazy ass, ridiculous (but fun!) fitness camp at Unit 27 on “Fight Street” in Phuket. Fight street is about a mile long, and it’s just gyms, boxing gyms, MMA gyms, protein shakes, and healthy food. Basically, it kinda makes it impossible to not get fit since you have everything in one place. It’s been a godsend for me.

How I Fell in Love With Sheet Masks

I’m going to admit something that may be a bit of shock to those that love Korean/Asian beauty.

I used to not be a fan of sheet masks. Like, I’d use them sometimes but never really got into them the way some people did. I just didn’t get it. I’d buy them, and then never really use them. When I left Korea, I gave most of my sheet masks away. I didn’t see the need to bring them to Vietnam because I really just never used them. I KNOW, I KNOW, I CAN HEAR YOUR GASPS FROM HERE. Don’t hate me, for now I am a new woman. A woman who is utterly obsessed with sheet masks.

Son & Park Beauty Water Review

This product was gifted to me. As always, opinions and words are my own!

If you’ve been shopping with me (hi friends!), then you’ll know that how something looks is important to me. I’ve been known to buy products based solely on how chic/pretty/glam/cute they are. “How will this look on my bathroom counter?” is a common question I ask myself when I buy products. Aesthetics always and forever.

Needless to say, when I first saw the review for Son & Park’s Beauty Water on Fashionista, I squealed a little on the inside. Chic, minimalist packaging? YES PLEASE. And the shit is called BEAUTY WATER?! DING! DING! DING! I want it all. Thankfully, Beauty Water doesn’t only look pretty and chic, it’s also a great product.

Whamisa Organic Flowers Facial Oil Review

 

whamisafacialoil1

The votes are in – The Whamisa Organic Flowers Facial oil was the most requested review on my Instagram and Facebook pages (don’t worry, I’m still going to review the Goodal Murumuru seed gel cream).

I got the Whamisa Organic Flowers Facial Oil as part of my Glow Recipe haul a few months ago. I am obsessed with using facial oils at night, and all I had to see was fermented stuff on the ingredient list for me to say a silent YASSSS and place it in my cart. Most really great oils are hella pricey, so at $40.00, I just couldn’t pass it up.
