SeoulMusic2K16

Hello there family! 지난 번 이후로 오랜만에 쓰는 것 같아. I’ve just returned from an amazingly epic adventure-time in Seoul. I was gone for 11 nights, and honestly it wasn’t enough time. Seoul is a place that will always feel like home to me, and I’m already planning my return. Song of the Trip There were…

The Joys of Streaming Music

A few weekends ago I ventured into the attic to retrieve a suitcase (because I’m going on an epic adventure that I promise to tell you all about soonish) and I discovered a box of CDs, old as time. Well, not time, but you know essentially ancient. This box of CDs was like jumping head…

Six terribad songs I love unironically

I like lots of different types of music. I am not a musical snob. I watched Glee (and prefer some of their covers), but I also love and appreciate classical music. It’s a spectrum yanno? Sometimes you’re in the mood for some Holst, other times you’re in the mood for some Skrillex! That being said, there…

Review | Atoclassic Real Tonic Masks

Hanbang your life. Atoclassic is a brand that caters primarily to those with sensitive skin and suffering with atophy (new word for me). So they’re like a Korean Aveeno, Oilatum and Dermaplex but with Hanbang (한방, Korean traditional medicine)! After months of reading Cat from Snow White and the Asian Pear (the Queen of Hanbang)’s posts on hanbang, I…

My A+Facial Cleansers

I think in product categories, which means I try not to get too attached to products themselves, instead looking at product function. So while I might have a favourite oil cleanser, or favourite acid toner, I have others that work well enough that I wouldn’t hate if I had to use them.  That said, I…

yo, what up?

Hi! It’s 21:03, it’s been almost three weeks since I’ve written a post. I’ve missed you all and felt a little guilty that I haven’t posted any dope content. Sorry team, I let the squad down. Good news, I have a job! It’s essentially my dream job, I get to pew pew and talk to people all…

Star vs the Forces of Evil!

Good Media Monday to you lovely people! Yes, I am aware that it is Tuesday, but temporarily, till Game of Thrones ends Media Monday will be Media Monday.. Tuesday. Shh, shh, it’s fine. Just go with it. I feel like I was just telling you how .gifs almost exclusively influence my television viewing, and it’s…

Where are the shades, Max Factor?

As a darker skinned woman of colour, I learned the hard way that the majority of the brands selling affordable foundation (under £15) just didn’t see me. My only options were higher end brands which meant makeup was not an everyday product for me. Frustrated by the lack of options, I’ve just stopped looking, but it’s been…

Playlist of the Moment: Motivation 9000

Job searching is a job in itself. After almost a thousand revisions, my resume is looking pretty snazzy if I do say so myself. In the months after I left my old job, I’ve been scouring the job boards, sending off applications and meeting with recruiters to find meaningful employment. Not just any old job (I can’t go back…

What’s in my travel bag?

While my cousin is the true globetrotter my desire to always be prepared means for short overnight and weekend trips, I have three travel bags, all packed and ready to go. One for skincare, one for bodycare and another containing sanitary products, but you’re most interested in the skincare aren’t you? I knew it. Though,…
