Hello everyone! I know it has been weeks since my last beauty blog update. Life has been on a pretty wild ride lately. But it certainly feels good to finally have the time to sit… More
Weekends are for crashing into bed and tucking yourself beneath blankets; your favorite teenage playlist banging rock music in every corner of the room as if it is some kind of a personal familiar comfort, melting the world of its temporary intimacy and sense.
Weekends are for reminiscing and travelling back in time. Your unmade bed is a space machine and your imagination are wings transporting you to a decade of wander and wild spirited youth. Continue reading “In Remembrance of Youth”
I went through my beauty stash the other day in an attempt to sort and to organize my beauty products by dates and batches. As I combed through my collection, I realized that almost half of everything in my stash are filed under the category of cute.
I am defenseless when it comes to cute packaging. I must admit that almost half of my decision to purchase a particular product is always highly influenced by how cute or how pink an item is. Continue reading “Beauty Bytes: 5 Super Cute Items in my Stash”
Hello everyone! Today’s beauty review is all about this cute quirky meringue foam maker from the Korean skincare brand, Raclia.
One thing I like about K-Beauty is that it never runs of interesting ideas and innovations when it comes to beauty and skincare. Koreans are always on the lookout for the newest developments and techniques to incorporate into their routines.
Sunscreens take the topmost spot in the list of my skincare essentials. I can go outside and get on with my day without anything on my face except for a layer or two of my favorite sunscreen. Continue reading “Beauty Review: Skinfood Tomato Sun Cream SPF 36 PA ++”
One of my ultimate struggles in beauty blogging is finding the perfect background for my flat lays. I always have hell of a hard time choosing what color complements my subject or what fabric goes well with a particular product. Continue reading “Beauty Bytes: Faux the Love of Flat Lays”
I know it has been months since the last time I wrote for the Wander Weekly series in my blog. When I first started this series, I promised I would publish at least two chapters every month, but somewhere down the road I swept that promise under the rug and decided to confine my mindless musings within the frayed yellowing pages of my tattered journal. Continue reading “Wander Weekly 05: Exploring a New Musical Terrain”
I know myself too well and I know for certain that when someone asks me to go out of town, I would be quick to run for the nearest exit before I could even say no. Continue reading “Under Northern Skies”
Hello everyone! Today I am going to do a quick sheet mask haul and share with you what I got from my recent visit to Shopee. (And by recent, I mean a few weeks ago haha)
Here’s a truth about sheet masks: No matter how many times we buy them, we cannot seem to get enough of them. At 1-3 dollars apiece, they seem harmless on our budget. But sustaining a sheet mask routine on a long-term basis is definitely not a cheap habit to have.
Hello everyone! I am excited to share with you my latest haul from Althea Korea. There’s nothing special in this haul really. Just a bunch of items I picked on a whim. But I figure, it has been a while since the last time I posted a complete unboxing post, so today I am going to share a full-detailed unboxing review featuring my May Haul from Althea Korea.
Hello and happy first of June everyone! I am going to jump start the month with a blog update.
The Bell Jar by Sylvia Plath
Sylvia Plath’s shocking, realistic, and intensely emotional novel about a woman falling into the grip of insanity. Esther Greenwood is brilliant, beautiful, enormously talented, and successful, but slowly going under—maybe for the last time. In her acclaimed and enduring masterwork, Sylvia Plath brilliantly draws the reader into Esther’s breakdown with such intensity that her insanity becomes palpably real, even rational—as accessible an experience as going to the movies.
A deep penetration into the darkest and most harrowing corners of the human psyche, The Bell Jar is an extraordinary accomplishment and a haunting American classic. (Goodreads)
After Finitude by Quentin Meillassoux
The exceptional lucidity and the centrality of argument in Meillassoux’s writing should appeal to analytic as well as continental philosophers, while his critique of fideism will be of interest to anyone preoccupied by the relation between philosophy, theology and religion.
Meillassoux introduces a startlingly novel philosophical alternative to the forced choice between dogmatism and critique. After Finitude proposes a new alliance between philosophy and science and calls for an unequivocal halt to the creeping return of religiosity in contemporary philosophical discourse. (Preface, Alain Badiou)
