10 Cute KBeauty Picks

Tuesday, 17 January 2017

So I've previously mentioned that I discovered Kdrama (Korean TV shows) last year and it quickly snowballed into a serious addiction. I can thank/blame my friend who recommended a Korean show to me. I've been watching the dramas for nearly a whole year now and I think I can actually understand some basic Korean words.

Anyway, Kdrama addiction is a serious disease, symptoms include: initial culture shock, total immersion due to complete obsession, and then a sudden interest in other aspects of Korean pop culture/products starts to emerge, for example, Korean beauty products. Now that I've explained how I developed an interest in KBeauty, I'm sharing some super cutely packaged Korean beauty products I've discovered. I think that products packaged in a fun or kooky way like this are quite common in Asia but here in Europe they're still pretty new to us.

1. Tonymoly Pocket Bunny Moist Mist
I purchased this myself and I really love it, it gives your skin a little moisuture boost throughout the day which wakes you up a little bit when you're tired.

2. Etude House Dear Darling Water Tint
I loved this too, it gives your lips a pretty stain which looks completely natural, a great product for a 'no makeup' make up look.

Lip balm packaged in a funky cherry shaped pot.

4. Tonymoly Cats Wink Compact
A cute pink cat shaped powder compact to keep you shine free.

5. Etude House Tear Drop Liner - Pearl #1
Make yourself look bright eyed and bushy tailed with this sparkly eyeliner, it opens up your eyes and looks really pretty on.

6. Tonymoly I'm Real Skin Care Facial Masks
I haven't tried these sheet masks yet but I loved all the other Korean sheet masks I've tried so I really want to try these ones.

7. Tony Moly Petite Bunny Gloss Bar in Peach
How cute is this bunny lip gloss?!

This adorable panda eye stick is supposed to soothe, refresh and hydrate tired eyes.

9. Tonymoly Egg Pore Steam Balm
An egg shaped pore steam balm which is supposed to work wonders to make your pores shrink and disappear.

10. Cute Black Liquid Eyeliner Pen
These little eyeliners are waterproof as well as cute.

Would you try any of these? What do you think of the packaging?

Travel Essentials

Saturday, 14 January 2017

I spend a lot of time commuting everyday, I feel like I'm always on a bus or a train, but one of my goals is to travel more internationally so I thought it'd be nice to put together a list of some very basic travel essentials.

1. Eye Mask, Muji 
I think we can all agree that snoozing is a part of long trips and this stripy eye mask from Muji should make getting some shut eye much easier.

2. Suitcase, Ready Travel
When I first saw this suitcase I thought is was just really beautifully designed, but after reading a bit about the design I realised it's actually a smart suitcase! This is perfect for anyone who would like their luggage to make travelling easier for them. It doesn't just look pretty, its' got an integrated scale, (never have to pay extra at the check in again!) a built in charger with removable battery, and a distance alert which lets you know if you're leaving it behind somewhere! Perfect! It's available now, if you're quick, you can get it for early bird pricing here!

3. Tisserand Aromatherapy Travel Ease, Evergreen
This little refreshing oil remedy will help wake you up when you're worn out during a long trip.

4. Jumper EZbook Air 8350 Laptop, Gearbest
If pretty portability is your main concern in your netbook, this laptop could be a dupe for a MacBook air if you don't look twice, and it weighs less than a kilogram.

5. Humlan Wash & Wear Headphones, Urbanears
I purchased these earphones in another colour back in September and I think it's one of my favourite purchases of 2016, I love them to bits! They're stylish, portable, have amazing sound quality, and they're machine washable!

6.  Shea Butter Sheet Mask, Innisfree
I've previously shared my discovery of sheetmasks, I absolutely love these ones from Innisfree, so hydrating slap it on while you're snoozing on the go for super hydrated skin.

7. New Balance 996, Schuh 
Comfy shoes are an absolute must when I'm travelling and I love my New Balance.

8. Harlow Water Bottle, bkr
This being glass might make it seem less practical for travelling but I really think water tastes better from a glass bottle, plus this is a really cute bottle.

What some are your travel essentials?
