Ice Flower Snow Falling Korean Dessert Cafe

October 28, 2016

A while back I did a short post on Ice Flower Cafe (aka the reason why I got into the whole bingsu craze in the first place). I said that I'd write a proper post when I get the chance, so here it is – a slightly better post, with lots of pictures!

Are you familiar with the term hanbang? If you're a K-beauty or Asian skincare addict like me, chances are you've seen or heard this term at least once. The word "hanbang" refers to traditional Korean medicine, and hanbang cosmetics are cosmetic products scientifically formulated with multiple herbs based on the old wisdom of traditional Korean herbal medicine. Today, I'll be reviewing my very first hanbang skincare item – RIN Bi-gyeol Yun Cream* from Hansaeng Cosmetics!

review : Kicho Ultra Moisturizing Sun Cream

October 19, 2016

Hey everyone, I have an exciting announcement to make today! Just recently, I officially became part of a small group of beauty bloggers for bntnews Internationalbntgirls! *party popper emoji*

bntnews is a website based in the UK that focuses on Korean fashion, beauty, entertainment, and the K-wave. The bntgirls group has been around for quite some time now, so you might already know about it from reading about it on other blogs. There are also several other bntgirls across Asia, and I'm super happy to be one of them ♥

As a bntgirl, I have the privilege of receiving a box of K-beauty goodies once a month, and my job is to tell you all about those goodies! For this month's beauty box (my very first one!), they sent me products from Korean brands that I've never heard of until now – one of them is the Ultra Moisturizing Sun Cream* from KICHO, which I'll be reviewing today.

October 2016

October is my birth month, so I'm always excited whenever this time of the year comes around. This year though, I haven't really done much besides eat lots of good food. (Which is, when I think about it, is probably the best way to spend my birth month, after all.) So this edition of Life Lately is a what-have-I-been-up-to-(and-stuffing-my-face-with)-this-month edition!

Cosplay Mania 2016

October 10, 2016

Sooo, I understand that this is probably a very cliché thing to do, but I'm going to come right out say it – Hello, October! ♥ October is my birth month, so naturally, I look forward to it every year. This year, we started the month off by attending both days of Cosplay Mania, the biggest ACG event in the Philippines. (Just a quick warning – this post is VERY image-heavy!)
