What I’ve Been Up To Lately

One of my friends sent me a screen shot of the last time I posted a blog. The date was in January.

I feel absolutely awful. Life has just been life-ing away over here in Vietnam. The beginning of the year started with a huge bang, and hasn’t really let up since. Here’s a little run-down of what I’ve been up to:

  1. I’ve started writing about skincare over at xoNecole.com. You can find my posts over in the Skin and Nails section!
  2. One of my best friends from college came to visit me for a month and I had such a great time. It’s so nice seeing the city you live in through fresh eyes. We went to Phuket together, the Mekong Delta, a Saigon Heat game, and ate lots of amazing food.
  3. I’ve also done some traveling in the new year -to Phuket with my best friend and Johnny, (and where I also met my HS bestie), Hoi An, Vietnam for Johnny and I’s 10 year anniversary, and I’m going to Bangkok on Sunday.
  4. I’m also working like crazy. Workworkworkworkworkwork (Like Rihanna).

And for the big news. I’m sad to be saying this, but I’ll be leaving Ho Chi Minh City in May. As much as I wanted to start the IFA program in Paris, the dates just didn’t add up for me. So, instead, Johnny and I are moving to Phuket, Thailand for the next 3 to 6 months.

How I Fell in Love With Sheet Masks

sheetmasks

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

closeupbeautywater copy

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.

Updates and a Giveaway!

Hi lovelies.

It’s been about 1000 years since I’ve last posted, and I must apologize. Things have been a wee bit crazy the past month or so. Between work and attempting to have a social life, I haven’t had much time for blogging. Then I went back to the US for two weeks to visit family and for my best friends wedding. It was a much needed break from the craziness of my life in Vietnam. I ate all of the food I’ve missed, relaxed on the beach with my besties, played with my nieces, shopped with my mom and sisters, and dropped some serious cash on makeup, makeup accessories, and hair stuff (and the famous SKII masks…I just had to)! Thank god for Sephora, MAC and Target. Makeup has always been my one true love, and I’d stopped wearing it as much because it’s just too hot in Vietnam but I don’t care anymore. MAKEUP FOREVER AND ALWAYS.

Oh yeah, and I have about 35345340963467 things to review and 45345 hauls to blog about. I am swimming in Korean beauty, girl! Here are some products you can expect reviews on soon (ish):

  1. My new obsession with sheet masks and my favorite ones
  2. Goodal Phytomuru Seed Gel Cream
  3. Mizon 8% AHA Serum
  4. Acwell 5.5pH Bubble free Balancing Cleanser
  5. cosrx Ultimate Nourishing Rice Overnight Spa Mask and the Ultimate Moisturizing Honey Overnight Mask
  6. Blossom Jeju serum and toner
  7. The new (Intensive) Missha First Treatment Essence

…and lots more. I’m excited to start reviewing again! I’m also thinking about re-introducing monthly favorites, and possibly some routine or makeup posts. Let me know what you think! I’d love to get your feedback.

And in even more exciting news….It’s time for a giveaway!
