A Small Skinfood Haul for Y’all

Hi friends! So a little while ago I decided to do something wildly unusually for me and buy some more Korean cosmetics. Lolz! This time was actually slightly different, however, as I went to Skinfood in my local Lotte Department. For any of you that don’t know, Lotte is a conglomerate that owns basically everything…

Vlog #3: The Night Before Hagwon

Hi friends! Today brings us the latest in a series of vlogs I started last year, when I first arrived in Korea. This episode is a particularly delirious video filmed the night before starting at my hagwon. It’s so interesting looking back on this because I remember how I felt – and it ain’t how I feel now!…

My Little Love Affair with Bioderma Hydrabio H2O

Hi friends! I wrote a little while ago about my amazement with Bioderma’s Hydrabio H2O in my first monthly favourites.

Vlog #2: First Night in a Love Motel

Hi friends! Long time no posts. After coming down with a horrendous virus over the long weekend, I managed to pass the sickness onto Gav so we have been under the weather for a combined week. Not fun! But you will be pleased to know that I am back, stronger than before and most importantly…

Aaaaand It’s Another Nature Republic Haul From Me

Hi friends, I have now reached the point where I have a backlog of Korean cosmetic haul posts to write, and I don’t know how I feel about that. I mean, I mostly feel good, but I occasionally feel a bizarre twinge of guilt for spending so much (not that much) money on myself and…
