Julep Neon Nail Dips – Ultra Bright Is Not Just For Teenyboppers

Once we pass the early 20s, bright colors seem to gradually fade away from our wardrobe. However, the right amount of color adds that instant pop to any outfits. And who said we can’t just rock neon accents because fluorescent trends aren’t just for youngsters.


If you are a little color shy to try out vibrant hues, incorporating some bright pieces into your outfits is a great way to accessorizes. I’ve recently tried out the Julep Neon Nail Dips ($12), and although I can’t say that I’m completely sold on the products inside, it’s definitely a unique concept to work some neon elements into my everyday ensemble.

Korres Showergels – Nothing Beats A Steamy Shower On A Cold Night

We’ve been having quite a roller-coaster weather here in Cali. There were a few days of Spring fever, but the weather quickly faded into the lower temperatures. And the best thing to recuperate from a cold night is by taking a nice hot shower with one of my favorite bath product, the Korres Showergels ($19.50 for 13.53 fl. oz.).

I haven’t tried out all the various fragrances yet (looks like Jasmine is a winner with many people), but so far, I’ve had some fun times with Japanese Rose, Basil Lemon (my favorite scent and smells so clean), and Clementine (discontinued).

There aren’t much that I ask for in a shower product other than having a pleasant scent, good lather, and non-stripping cleansing ability (OK! May be that is a lot. That’s fine. I know I’m picky). The Korres Showergels pass all these standards according to my book.

Homemade Honey and Olive Oil DIY Face Mask – The Perfect Remedy For Dry Skin

I’m a big fan for do-it-yourself projects because there is just something special about DIY beauty products because it feels like a mini spa right in my kitchen. I usually learn my recipes from friends and families, beauty magazines, and other bloggers. This Honey and Olive Oil Face Mask has been one of my favorites, and it works great during these cold months because it’s extremely moisturizing.  The ingredients in this mask are very simple and are things you can usually find in your kitchen.

  • Honey
  • Extra Virgin Olive Oil
  • Water
  • A small bowl or cup for mixing
  • Spatula
  • Measuring spoon

Sulwhasoo Skincare Basic Kit – Traditional Recipe Infused With Modern Ideology

When reviewing products, I like to experiment with them for at least weeks, if not months, before I form conclusions. However, very rarely, some impress me within the first few tries. My most recent encounter with such exceptional collection is the Sulwhasoo Skincare Basic Kit I ($35 for 5 travel size items). Sulwhasoo (설화수 雪花秀), under the cosmetics giant Amore Pacific, is a high-end Korean beauty brand that incorporates traditional herbs and ginseng in its products.


Many budget friendly Korean brands such as Etude House, The Face Shop, and Skin Food are extremely popular within bloggers, but I seldom see mentions of department store ones like Sulwhasoo and HERA (헤라), which carry top-notch beauty lines.


With some products priced over $100, ensuring their effectiveness before making such big investment is very important. For anyone who are curious about Sulwhasoo, the various skincare sets are great choices to start with.

Bite Beauty High Pigment Matte Pencil – Welcome To The Sizzling Summer Fiesta

I’m usually quite conservative when it comes to everyday makeup, but summer is the perfect time to play around with bold colors and let the creativity run wild, that is if I don’t turn myself into Bozo the Clown. For those who want to take a kaleidoscopic trip outside of your comfort zone, I recommend the Bite Beauty High Pigment Matte Pencil ($24 for 0.09 oz), a creamy, semi-matte, and long-lasting lip crayon for the braved hearts.


Before you turn away from the high price tag, note that the steep cost is covering premium and healthier ingredients, which aren’t usually available in cosmetics. This lip pencil is made without synthetics and petroleum byproducts and is created with food-grade ingredients and resveratrol, a super antioxidant.
