We all know by now that Korea is the queen of cosmetics. It’s pretty self-evident. But I’m still constantly amazed at just how good their sunscreens are — which I was not expecting. When I was in Korea, I pretty quickly caught onto the fact that Korean women take great care of their skin, and this…

My Absolutely Ludicrous Korean Beauty Haul

Hey friends, So a few weeks back, I decided to hop on a plane and make my way to Korea. I’d missed it for too long, and it was really getting the better of me. I’m always craving Korean food (in fact, I think I might have it for lunch today), I missed the kids…
