Esqido Unisyn Synthetic False Eyelashes PB & J Companion Eyelash Glue Review

A few years back, I posted about ESQIDO Mink Lashes and how much I love the natural look and feel of the lashes. Fast forward to present day, I still love and regularly wear their mink lashes and use their Companion Eyelash Glue.

Food Through the Lens: Dessert Adventures

Who doesn't love to stroll through the city in the evening with their closes friends and feast on sweet treats?! Because that's exactly what my friends and I did one evening. Instead of the usually catch up over dinner, we went dessert-hopping! With a ton of dessert shops opening all around the city and a growing list of bookmarks on our individual maps, we strategically narrowed it down to one to start (mainly because they closed a little early) and gradually made our way to a few more before we were sugared-out (it didn't take long).

Buh Bye Dark Spots! Ole Henriksen Glow 2 OH Dark Spot Toner Review

Ole considers toners to be an essential step in every skincare regimen. Not only do they sweep away dirt, oil and makeup, but they also leave skin perfectly primed for serum and moisturizer.

Inspired by his Exfoliate-Treat-Soothe philosophy, Glow2OH Dark Spot Toner perfectly balances highly concentrated AHAs with skin-soothing botanicals - which means the formula is as effective as it is a joy to use.

Hello, 2019!

To me, 2018 was all about care, skincare and self care more specifically.

At the beginning of the year, I started to dive into the research of skincare and slowly saw results that felt more long term, instead of a temporary fix. Currently, I feel my skin is at a stage where I am comfortable and happy. I'm still not 100% satisfy with my skin but seeing the improvements throughout 2018, I know I'm heading towards the right skincare path.

Taking care of my skin is one thing, taking care of myself is another. People always say to take care of yourself, and I agree. But I didn't realize to what degree. I always take care of myself by generally keeping myself "healthy". The word Healthy can be thrown in so many ways. Half way into 2018, I opened a new world of the word Healthy. Besides continuing to eat right and exercising, I gave time to myself.

In August, I went on a cruise and completely disconnected myself from the internet world. I thought I wouldn't survive but to my surprise, it felt amazing. Coming home, I didn't want to login because I felt my mind was at ease (and because I was terrified going through a weeks worth of emails). Since then, I would do a social media pause for a few days whenever I can (usually during long weekends/holidays) and really do things outside of social media that make me happy - taking pictures and editing without tight deadlines, journaling, drawing. All this expanded my creative outlet and made me be with my thoughts and stopped me from being at my lowest.

Coming into 2019, I will continue to give myself all the care I need; being confident with my skin, more time with myself - physically, mentally, spiritually, and loving myself overall.

Wishing everyone a 2019 filled with love, support, and lots of happiness.
