Somehow October turned out to be pretty eventful and the number of photos I took seemed to reflect that. I didn't do a count but I think I posted more photos than usual last month and I actually had a tough time pulling out some highlights this time around. As usual, I'm not going to overload you with a million pics here so to see more, check out my Instagram feed and of course you can also follow if you'd like.
One of my favorite views of the city, looking west towards the Chrysler Building on 42nd street that's especially gorgeous during the fall. More lovely fall colors in the city.
Sometimes when you look up, you see cool things.
The hustle and bustle of East Broadway in Chinatown. More Chinatown here - a moody look at one of the most photographed streets.
Cool Bradley Theodore art spotted in the window at Alexis Bittar's Soho store for the artist and jewelry designer's collaboration.
My favorite lunch lately, a concoction of quinoa, baby kale and garlic with a dijon and apple cider vinegar dressing. So filling and tasty!
The lines at Kang Ho Dong Baekjong in K-town are still kind of crazy around dinnertime but their BBQ is awesome! Love the steamed egg and cheesy corn that cooks at the same time.
SK-II opened cool pop-up shop in Soho for the month where they had free skin evaluations and consultations. Of course I checked it out and scored some swag and I also got a nice surprise about the age of my skin. Read more about it here.
Hera UV Mist Ultra Moisture is current cushion compact I'm currently using. I wrote a mini review here if you want to learn more about it. I will be doing more of this type of brief review of select products on my Instagram going forward.
I attended an exciting beauty event hosted by Japanese brand DHC which previewed a number of fabulous upcoming product launches. Their DHC Deep Cleansing Oil is a cult favorite that I happen to love. I received some great new goodies like the Rich Eye Zone Care Pack pictured here. I'm currently testing the products out and will be introducing them here soon. They have an eyeliner that is incredible!
Had so much fun crafting and getting a jump on Halloween decorating with Woman's Day magazine in early October. Learned helpful tips like how a linoleum knife is the best tool to use for carving pumpkins.
