These makeup brushes has gone viral on Facebook. At one point, my timeline was filled with shared links of these gorgeous makeup brushes. These are every unicorn and mermaid fantasy dreams fulfilled. I guess everyone can agree with me when I say that these are the cutest makeup brushes in existence. But are they worth the hype?

Most of the time, I look at the endorser before I decide to purchase from a certain brand. If I don't like the person endorsing the brand, I tend to pass. But if I like the endorser, I tend to hoard. This is what happened with me and the many Korean cosmetics brands that I love - Innisfree is one of those "many."

This is going to be the last of my San Francisco posts and I am honestly sad about this series ending. I enjoyed my stay there so much and I would love to go back. Of course, like any other trip, there were a few mishaps but everything turned out well in the end and I loved the place. Next time for sure, I will stay longer. And as they say, when a door closes a window opens. Hence, when this series concludes, I will start another one and I am super excited to share my experience. But for now, I hope you enjoy this last post feature Haight Street.

This is a new monthly series that I am going to add to this blog. If you remember my latest Seoul Haul, you would remember me showing off the 1 year (or more) supply of freebies that I got from shopping in Myeongdong. Previously, I use the samples I get whenever I travel. But because I only use a few samples (like 1 sample of BB cream can last for a week so I only bring 1) I decided to start using at least 1 every week. Some of these samples will be expiring soon and it would be waste to throw them away hence I decided to do this series.

The cold season was short lived (and I really wish it could be longer) and summer has finally arrived. With the change of season, I also decided to switch up a few makeup products. I don't normally pile on makeup but I tend to wear more during the cold season. But now that it started to become hot and humid I wear less makeup. I sweat a lot so I skip on anything with coverage during the summer (though I would dab a few dots of concealer under my eye - just under my eye).

After a morning spent touring Castello di Amorosa, my aunt and I decided to visit the infamous Oxbow Public Market. It took another 2 hours from the castle to get here and by the time we arrived, we were both famished. We decided to eat at Gott's Roadside for a typical American lunch: burgers, fries and milkshake. I had been craving for a smooth, creamy milkshake for days and it was finally satisfied here. The diner was decorated with Halloween decor and it was just the cutest!

Despite the strong jetlag, my aunt and I braved the cold streets of San Bruno to catch the first BART train to El Cerrito Del Nort station. We then had to ride a bus for more than 2 hours to reach Castello di Amorosa. The commute to reach "The Castle," as it is locally known, was not smooth. It took us almost 4 hours both ways and we got lost along the way but it was definitely worth the trip.

As a person who has an intense sweet tooth, I could not pass up the chance to visit Ghirardelli Square. I was too excited to visit the place that I went there with very high expectations only to be met halfway. The place is iconic and because of the cafe which is why people highly recommend visiting. But if you want to see something else (like what I did) you may be disappointed. The shops are too few and quite expensive and there is nothing else to see.

If you read my blog long enough, you would know that I don’t wear foundation at all! I am so in-love with BB creams that I don’t even consider buying any foundation (not even the Too Faced Born This Way foundation that ever beauty blogger/vlogger seem to rave about). I like the thought of wearing a multi-purpose product like BB cream that contains SPF and other skincare properties while at the same time offer light to medium coverage. But when I saw this 24k Royal Gold Radiant Foundation in Althea Korea’s website, I was captured. It is a foundation that contains SPF and anything with SPF is always a plus for me (I live in an extremely sunny country so SPF is necessary). I bought it and I love it! I wore this every day during the holidays and I love the medium coverage and dewy finish. It also matched my skin tone well and did not clog my pores. Now I understand why some people still prefer wearing foundation even when there are BB creams and CC creams now available in the market.

Aside from makeup and skincare items, I managed to snag a few other items as well from my recent trip to Korea. I only managed to get one fashion item because all the pieces stores were selling were for winter. I don't have any use for winter clothes if I am not going to a cold place as average temperature where I live is 30-31 degrees C. Coldest would be 26 degrees C - not enough cold for thick clothes and wool sweaters. And because we had limited baggage space/weight going home. The amount of cosmetics we bought plus our winter attire are already beyond the allowable space/weight for the check-in baggage. Adding more winter items is already out of the picture.
