Spend Halloween with ROSEGAL

Halloween is less than 2 months away and the best way to prepare for the upcoming holiday is through Rosegal. The company offers a wide array of Halloween-themed items such as sweaters, costumes, decors and so much more. You may find everything you need for the occasion in Rosegal. Here are a few I found from their website that I would definitely like to have for Halloween:

Product Review: Holika Holika All Kill Cleansing Oil Water

I always make sure to remove my makeup prior to sleeping. But I am guilty of foregoing the whole nighttime skincare routine once makeup is removed. Let's just say that I have those days when I am far too lazy to take proper care of myself. However, makeup removal is mandatory for me and I consider it a sin if I skip. Thus, a product that both removes makeup and keeps skin clean is heaven sent for me. Micellar water is one of those products and I really like the Bioré one. But I am always open to trying out new things so when we were in Seoul back in December, I decided to buy a few makeup remover/cleanser products. One that piqued my curiosity is the Holika Holika All Kill Cleansing Oil Water. We all know oil and water don't go together so I wonder how this product will work.

Autumn Travel with DRESSLILY

The "ber" months has begun and it is time for me to look for new light jackets and coats at DRESSLILY. Though we don't have autumn where I live, I will be traveling to different places this autumn season (follow my instagram if you want to know the places I will visit) so I've been browsing DRESSLILY for new items to wear for my trip . I am really excited to be traveling again soon and what makes me even more excited is the cute and cozy sweaters as well as warm and trendy coats I can wear. If you are also traveling this fall, here are some items I found from the website that might interest you as well. Best thing about the company is that the items are affordable and they offer expedite international shipping!

Seoul, South Korea (Hello Kitty Café in Hongdae)

Another cute pink cafe one shouldn't miss when in Seoul: Hello Kitty Cafe. There is a branch in Myeongdong but my mom and I decided to visit the branch in Hongdae instead. This is the more famous branch probably because the land area is bigger. We had wanted to visit this cafe for so long but last time we were in Seoul, we couldn't find it. They had moved from their original location from one of the more populated alleys of Hongdae (which now stands a clothing store) to one of the more modest alleys. It was difficult to find this new location but with the help of Seoul Police Tourist Information, we managed to get here before the sun completely set (they speak really good English too!).

Product Review: Althea Korea Petal Velvet Powder

Oily skin is my major skin concern. No matter the weather, my skin produces so much sebum uncontrollably. Thus, a good powder is necessary in my daily makeup routine. Even with matte BB cream or foundation I still need a good translucent powder to set my makeup and make it last longer. So far, of all the powders I have tried, the Banila Co Prime Primer powder is the best. It doesn't control oil for the entire day but a lot longer than most of the powders I tried (like 5-6 hours). However, this powder is quite expensive and I don't always have the budget for it so I am still in search for a good, more affordable alternative. The Innisfree No Sebum Mineral Powder comes close. But Innisfree is not available in the Philippines (unless I shop online). Because I am still searching far and wide for a good alternative, I was ecstatic when Althea Korea mentioned they are launching their very first product which happens to be a powder. I wouldn't pass up the opportunity to be among the first to try this product as this is exactly what I have been looking for. The Althea Petal Velvet Powder was just released this month and it might just be my new favorite powder.

Seoul, South Korea (K.Art)

오랜마니에요 여러분! 나 보고싶었어요? 나는 블로깅을 많이 보고싶었어요.
Just practicing my Korean.
I recently went to Seoul (again, for the 5th time) but I am still not done with my winter experience. I wasn't able to explore much this last trip anyway because I was sick the entire time! I only got to see Myeongdong and DMZ (because we pre-booked a tour). Anyway, next store I will feature for the winter in Seoul series is K.Art. I looked deep in the black hole that is the world wide web but there were hardly any article that pointed me to what I was looking for. There were lots of articles you can find with lists of stores where you can buy Kpop albums and posters but I was looking for light sticks. I didn't want to purchase online because they were overpriced and I am impatient so waiting for them to hold their concert in Manila is not an option. K.Art is the only place I found that sold them after reading so many articles.

Seoul, South Korea (Stylenanda Myeongdong)

Coat: thrifted | Grey Heattech: Uniqlo | Cropped Sweater: Topshop | Jeans: American Eagle Outfitters
Cat Bonnet: Bershka | Bag: Le Sportsac | Sneakers: Adidas

It was by accident that we saw this pretty pink building in a quiet alley in Myeongdong. It's bright pink color begs for attention but it is established in an unassuming area. One would think it is packed with people but reality says otherwise (though there are quite a number of people and the area of each floor is too small). It is quite difficult to find if you aren't looking around. But I guess the universe conspired for me to land in this alley and be blessed with the beauty that is Stylenanda.
