[JOLSE] LUI&LEI DIANA GEN Prestige Cream Gold Caviar Review

I was recently selected, along with 29 other bloggers, to try out the LUI&LEI Diana Gen Gold Caviar Radiance Reviving Cream from Jolse. I have only been trying out this cream for a short time, but since it is a timed review I'll be sharing my first impressions with you today.

This item is a press sample, received in exchange for an honest review.

I Made a Dashboard for my Traveler's Notebook!

I've been falling in love with the idea of bullet journalling, being addicted to making lists and all... And decided a traveler's notebook would be a great way to still decorate and have fun while being about to make my bujo lists, trackers, and collections. One of the ways I am already having a blast decorating with it dashboards.

Dashboards are a wrap-around cover for your inserts that allow you to label, decorate, or separate parts of your journal. They can also be nice for sticking post-it's on, or have folder slots for additional planner storage.

This particular dashboard is just to decorate my planner and make it more "me." I used some adorable kawaii food stickers I had been hoarding, some cardstock, a laminator, a ruler, and scissors. I have a quick walk-through of how I did it if you'd like to take a look!

Birthday Celebration Giveaway!

I've been planning this giveaway for a while for several reasons; I recently passed 3,500 friends on Instragram, I've been blogging for seven years, and my fabulous Facebook group of lovely friends who are as addicted to k-beauty as I am recently passed 6,000 members (soon to surpass 7,000). I am so overjoyed by all the support, love, and kindness everyone has shown me over the years, so I wanted to do something really special to thank you all for sticking with me.

My birthday is coming up on April 13th - and I will, begrudgingly, be turning 31 this year. Teenage me didn't think this day would come. Depression is an evil mistress, and one that I still struggle with. This year I want to celebrate hope, friendship, and self-care. Here on my blog I am giving away some of my favorite products right now - enough to put together a full routine. Doing my skincare routine each night gives me a time to calm my nerves, to forget about the day, and to love my skin. I want to give someone else this gift.

Asian Beauty Inspired Skincare Routine Video | Live for 2017

Once a year I put myself, in all my awkwardness, out there to create a visual example of how I put together my skincare routine, using some of my favorite products. If you're a visual learner like me, and feel more comfortable after seeing someone perform a task, then this video may be helpful to you!

BonVivant Original Chrome Mask [First Impressions] Review

Last week Memebox released their Original Chrome Mask, that many of us had been ogling over since we saw it was released in Korea. I hadn't been this excited about a new Memebox release in a while, so I took advantage of the points and coupon I had saved, and bought a jar! Shipping was fast, and I had the mask in my hands yesterday! Having only had the opportunity to use this mask once, this is obviously a first impressions post. But since I do expect masks to give immediate (or overnight) effects, unlike a cream or serum or other piece of skincare, I assume the results I share with you here will remain about the same each time I use this mask.

Naruko Face Renewal Miracle Essence Review

As I approached the bottle of my latest bottle, I suddenly realized that I'd been using the Naruko 60 Actives La Creme Face Renewal Miracle Essence for nearly four months and never put together a review. So many of you lovely folks ask me about this regularly, and you would think that would be enough of a hint to get the rest of my thoughts together, wouldn't it?
