Currently Coveting

October 21, 2016

Somehow my inclination towards nesting always seems to flip on whenever fall comes around and this month's wish list is all about home decor. What are you coveting lately?

1. Cool Stripe Lumbar Pillow
{This will be a stylish addition to our couch!}

2. Accent Table
{Love the sleek lines of this side table and it's such a bargain too.}

3. Peter Lindbergh: A Different Vision on Fashion Photography
{I collect photography books and Peter Lindbergh just happens to be one of my favorite photographers so this compendium is a must.} 

4. Copper Phone
{This retro style phone totally reminds me of my childhood but ours didn't look as chic. Yes we still maintain a landline for emergencies.}

5. Diptyque Figuier Candle
{Been thinking about this luscious scent ever since I smelled it at the Diptyque store. Will have to pick up this candle after we finish our Jasmine one.}

6. Taylor Bud Vase
{Such an artful looking little vase.}

7. Nate Berkus Curved Slipper Chair
{This chair is just so pretty!}

Giorgio Armani Beauty, A Review

October 19, 2016
Armani Beauty Sì Eau de Parfum, Giorgio Armani Beauty Lip Manifesto, Armani Beauty, Armani Beauty Review, Lip Manifesto, #SaySi

I was selected to receive a full sized bottle of Sì Eau de Parfum Intense and two Giorgio Armani Beauty Lip Maestro lip colors for review in a recent Influenster VoxBox. This was exciting since I happen to like the regular Armani Sì scent. I had also recently picked up a Lip Maestro on a whim and it's been one of my go to lip colors this fall.

ChocZero Is Sugarfree Chocolate That Tastes Good

October 17, 2016
ChocZero Chocolate, ChocZero Review, Sugarfree Chocolate, Low Carb Chocolate

I may not eat sugar or sweets but one occasion indulgence I allow myself is chocolate. While there have been ongoing debates about whether chocolate is actually good for your health, chocolate just tastes good and feels like a decadent treat. The flavonoids in chocolate have been shown to lower blood pressure, improve your cholesterol levels and vascular functions. Dark chocolate contains a higher proportion of flavanoids than milk chocolate. I prefer dark chocolate anyway but the problem is that most of them still contain sugar which has zero benefits so I consume them sparingly. Of course my interest was piqued when ChocZero reached out and asked if I want to try their chocolate.

Eye Candy : Ji Chang Wook for Harper's Bazaar

Ji Chang Wook, Ji Chang Wook 2016, Ji Chang Wook Harpers Bazaar, 지창욱, The K2

Compared to 2015, there seems to be a distinct lack of editorials featuring Ji Chang Wook this year. To make up for that, his smexiness is out in full force in this pictorial for Harper's Bazaar where he makes casually lounging around in a pair of crown emblazoned pajamas and a blazer look mighty fine and very cool at the same time. This one is so on point in terms of photography, styling  and grooming. My favorite outfit might just be that polka dotted pj type suit because of the swagger he is exuding in it. And the hair... his phenomenal head of hair always looks so much better when it's swept up and off that handsome face.

The 29 year old actor is currently lighting up television screens on Friday and Saturday nights as a former soldier turned bodyguard caught up in a web of political intrigue and revenge in the tvN drama The K2. Chang Wook is reportedly receiving over 90 million won (approximately $80,000) per episode which is even more than what Jeon Do Yeon made for The Good Wife, making him the highest paid actor ever in Korean cable history. I would imagine that they're paying for his immense popularity across Asia as well as all the action sequences required of him. I've only seen clips and they look even more intense than what he did in The Healer. The stunts must be taking their toll since he teased that this might be his last action series during the show's press conference. Chang Wook also talked about being raised by single mom in a recent interview. He felt terrible and helpless about how hard she had to work to raise him so his proudest moment came when he was able to pay off the family debt and buy her a house. His filial piety is so sweet. I'm not watching the K2 because neither the genre nor the lead actress Yoona appeal to me. I will probably watch this Harper's Bazaar interview video a few more times... he looks even better in motion and his voice is super swoony. My husband says the same thing about rice that Chang Wook does ha!

Bioderma Micellar Water H2O

Micellar waters seem to having their moment in beauty lately and before the micellar water market became saturated there was Bioderma. In fact there was a time when Bioderma Sensibio H2O was the "it" micellar water and it still remains well established both as a innovator and longstanding favorite with one bottle of Sensibio H2O sold around the world every two seconds!

What is Micellar Water?

Micellar (pronounced my-sell-er) water is composed of purified soft water and mild surfactant oils. The suspended molecules form microscopic spheres called micelles, which draw out and dissolve dirt and oil when they come into contact with your skin. To use micellar water, you apply it to a cotton pad or cotton ball and swipe it across your skin to let it do it's thing. The micellar water will leave behind soft, cleansed and hydrated skin.
