Our Wedding

Our wedding day was absolutely magical. It was the best day of my life–I had never spent an entire day surrounded by people I love, celebrating my husband and I’s love for each other.

Splurge or Steal: Gel Eyeliner

Back with another edition of SPLURGE or STEAL: this time it’s the battle of the gel eyeliners. Gel eyeliner rapidly gained popularity in the mainstream thanks to its impressive results in the cat-eye department, and its set-it-and-forget-it staying power.

The Worst BB Creams

About six months ago I chronicled my experience with BB Creams, both Asian and non-Asian, and today I’m here to give you a little update on what I’ve found.
