โœจSkincare Blogger Collaboration – Our recommendationsโœจ

I wouldn’t have been as consistent with providing skincare reviews, as I have been for this length of time, if it wasn’t for the support of other skincare enthusiasts. Hence why today’s blog post encompasses the contributions of several bloggers/reviewers, to combine our skincare recommendations, advice & interests – catering to all skin types as…

How to Start Living Ethically (Food, beauty, product alternatives + more)

Veganism, Vegetarianism, Eco-friendly living & ethical lifestyle choices are without a doubt widely accepted and adopted as a core lifestyle more than ever. When growing up, I remember non-meat eaters and environmentalists being shadowed by such negative connotations – many around me simply, and naively, suggested that people who lead said lifestyles are attention seekers…

I’m Average – So what?

There’s Nothing Wrong With Being Average… For most of us, regardless of where we are settled in the world, there’s unwritten expectations of us in life. Some of us will go through the pressures of family members and dear ones chewing off our ears about ‘when are you going to do this?’, ‘when are you…

My Top 15 Skincare Products of 2019

[Gifted] Troiareuke Skincare Review ๐Ÿ’ญ

Troiareuke Acsen Toc Toner I first heard about Troiareuke 4 more years ago.

August Favourites.

August favourites, or more appropriately this should be titled ‘my summer favourites’ or, ‘I’ve run out of blog post ideas, and don’t want to talk about gloomy stuff again’ – but that would be too long of a heading. It’s possibly been as long as a year ago since I did a favourites themed post:…

A few days ago, August 15th marked the anniversary of South Korea’s independence: more commonly named ‘National Liberation Day of Korea’.

Abib Mild Acidic pH sheet mask review (Honey fit) ๐Ÿฏ

Quite often I walk around OliveYoung, one of the biggest drugstore chains in Korea, liking the variety of sheet masks available; but more often than not I don’t appreciate the prices of most items (if you know what I mean). This Abib Mild Acidic pH sheet mask, honey fit version, caught my eye due to…

Diary 14 – Now it’s Summer.

It has exceeded more than a month since I wrote a diary entry… Now its Summer. Not a lot has changed in my life since my last update, but just because nothing has moved forward in my life, time being the only thing to progress, I don’t think things are going poorly nor something to…

[Ad-Gifted]: G9skin Pink Blur Hydrogel Eye Patches Review.

Not to long ago I reviewed the matching serum to this Keep Cool Soothe Bamboo Toner/ํ‚ต์ฟจ ์ˆ˜๋“œ ๋Œ€๋‚˜๋ฌด ํ† ๋„ˆ (350ml).

Ampoule pads: Have you used them before? To tell the truth I didn’t know they existed until I received these Glowhill Total Solution Glow Ampoule Pads. If you seek youthful, glowing, glossy skin that’s achieved through the use of skincare rather than layering uncomfortable makeup products that aim to provide the same look, then I…

Diary 13 – Overcast.

Sometimes I like rainy days. The pitter-patter of rain drops falling and trickling down a window pain or umbrella is relaxing. Sometimes rainy days paint an overcast slate grey sky, that can make 2pm on a Summer Monday resemble a cozy September evening. Lately indoors has become more of a comfort once again: I’m regretful…

[AD-Gifted]: Ground Plan 24hr Secret Mist Plus Review ๐Ÿ•’

Until recently, I had always associated face mists with supplying a top-up of extra hydration throughout the daytime, and didn’t regard it as an essential item mainly due to not having dry skin.

Be Your Own Hype Man.

Gladly, I think we can all say that the discussion of Mental Health is more acceptable and widely spread than say around 5+ years ago. A large part of promoting a positive mindset, whether it be for yourself or others, is surrounding yourself with good or trustworthy people who you can vent to in times…

Diary #12 – Coffee helps โ˜•

I’m unsure how to describe the week just past… It’s had it’s highs, then again it’s had it’s lows just as any week for the majority of us. All I know is that coffee helps. Half of me is sick to death with social media being swarmed by the constant body shaming of others, and…
