Glossier Showroom | NYC 2019

Wednesday, July 24, 2019

Other than meeting a friend for the first time, going to the Glossier Showroom was on my to do list during my four hours in New York City. I'd dreamed about seeing the showroom in person since it's reopening last year and let me tell you, it's everything I've seen on Instagram for aaages.

With four hours in New York City, I had to be strategic af when it came to having fun and getting where I wanted to go. Thank God for Fran, my tour guide and close friend for four years. This visit was also the first time Fran and I were meeting face to face (thank you Internet!!). I was truly blessed with Fran because she lives there and thankfully knows her way around the city. After walking through the rain, making it to the Glossier showroom, we moved on through the drizzle to oo35mm in Koreatown. It's a tiny and narrow shop filled with all sorts of beauty items and skincare, mostly Korean. K-Beauty has been on the rise for the past couple years and this store was everything I'd ever wanted.

Good Eats | London 2019

The inner blogger in me took over whenever I sat down in a cafe or a restaurant in London. Part of me documented my food for my own amusement but also for this blog. I wanted to share everything I ate/saw/did across four days in one of my favorite places. I didn't get to all my favorite places but I did make it to some of them and some new places!

What I Packed | London 2019

Monday, July 15, 2019


Obviously I'm a planner. Along with being a planner, I'm a hoarder. A hoarded of the tiny and travel sized skincare and makeup. I'd like to say thank you to my job for the products but it's also me being me. I decided early on of what skincare and makeup I was going to take with me in relation to the weather, climate, and however my skin was going to react in another country.

Antioxidants. Hydration. Oil Control. Balance.

These were some of the words that crossed my mind for my stay in London. I wanted to prepare for all possible cases with my skin tbh. I don't travel much so I'm not one of those people who knows how their skin will behave on a plane then in another city. We're just going off assumptions here folks!

Beauty Haul | London 2019

Friday, July 5, 2019


Aside from the shopping I did in New York, I went off in London. I hadn't treated myself to quite a haul in a long time (actually probably never). I touched down in London with a carefully curated list, because that's how I am. I know I filmed two videos for IGTV showing everything I bought but I also wanted to write a post adding onto what I filmed (with links!).
