Eye Candy : Editorial Roundup

April 20, 2018
Hyun Bin

I usually just save celebrity editorial images as they catch my eye and when I took a look at my folder earlier this week I realized that it has been awhile since I've shared the eye candy. So here we go... Starting off with Hyun Bin looking picture perfect in Arena Hommes+. I love the lighting in this shot and juxtaposition of the shadow over his face. The handsome actor recently signed on for the fantasy melodrama Memories of the Alhambra opposite Park Shin Hye.  Speaking of Park Shin Hye, her appearance in Lee Seung Gi's MV for Love Time was adorable and I would love to see the two of work together on a drama or movie.  Seung Gi recently wrapped Hwayugi (A Korean Odyssey) which I watched but didn't love. It had potential but both the story and the characterizations lacked development. Still seeing Seung Gi made me happy. His "monkey" hairstyle even grew on me though I'm liking his hair even better in The Big Issue.

June Jacobs Masque Review & Giveaway

 June Jacobs Mandarin Moisture Masque Review, June Jacobs Review, June Jacobs Giveaway

Face masks are an integral part of of my skincare routine. I enjoy the ritual and find them very satisfying to use, not to mention the skin benefits they provide. I have a revolving rotation of sheets masks and wash off masks. I usually make my choice on what to use based on the current condition of my skin and the type of result I'm looking for be it a boost of hydration, firming or a glow boosting exfoliation. My skin could always use little extra moisture and this June Jacobs Mandarin Moisture Masque has been one of my favorites lately.

Shopping The Sephora Beauty Insider Sale

April 16, 2018
Sephora Spring Sale, Sephora Beauty Insider Sale, Sephora Spring Bonus Sale, Sephora Sale, Sephora VIB Sale

It's that time of the year! Sephora's Spring Bonus Event aka the Sephora Beauty Insider/VIB Sale is happening! A perk of the Sephora Beauty Insider rewards program, this sale grants members a discount of 10 - 15% off almost everything depending on your level of membership. Many people use these sales to stock up on their favorite beauty essentials and/or splurging on items they've been eyeing for awhile.

The Sephora Beauty Insider Rewards Program is free to join and totally worth it. The top tier is VIB Rouge, for customers who spend $1,000 a year. The next level is VIB, for customers who spend $350 a year. The Beauty Insider tier has no spend minimum and is for anyone in the program.

April 13 - 16 and April 20 - 23
VIB Rouge members get 15% off their purchases on  with the code YAYROUGE
VIB Rouge members can also bring a friend on April 13 and share their 15% with them

April 20 - 23
VIB members get 15% off their purchases with the code YAYVIB
Beauty Insiders get 10% off their purchases with the code YAYINSIDER

Gift cards, eGiftcards, FLASH and PLAY! by Sephora, packaging, taxes and shipping are excluded from the promotion as are products from The Ordinary. But almost everything else is eligible including many luxury brands that don't usually go on sale. Online and in-store shoppers are limited to one Dyson product and three Drunk Elephant products per purchase. Don't forget to take a look at the "Sephora Favorites" which are value sets featuring makeup and skin and hair care products from a variety of brands. They're usually a pretty good value and the sale prices are even better. These make great gifts! I do own a Dyson Supersonic Hair Dryer and can say it's worth the splurge.

I'm actually proud to say that I didn't reach VIB status (and just barely) until the very end of last year since I was dedicated to working down my stash and cutting down on unnecessary spending/wasting money. I'm now at the point where my stash is manageable and I need to replenish some items so I will be shopping this sale. To maintain focus and stay organized, I put together a wishlist which I've divided into repurchases and new products I'm coveting. I'm not sure how much I'll end up buying but it's a safe bet it'll be less rather than more.

Welcome To The Egg House

April 13, 2018

Last year we had the Ice Cream Museum and now The Egg House has landed in New York City. I attended a press preview of the latest popup just ahead of it's grand opening last week. Located on the Lower East Side, the "museum" aims to provide a momentary escape from the every day.  The Egg House is the domain of Ellis the Egg. Born from a sunny side flower, Ellis eventually settles in New York on the Lower East Side.

It still kind of feels like winter in NYC but that isn't stopping me from looking at lovely things to wear when the warmer weather finally shows up. Blush and black pretties have been catching my eye lately.

1. Pussy Bow Two-Tone Silk Crepe de Chine Blouse
Peter Pan collars and pussy bows are two of my favorite fashion details! This top would wear well casual or dressed up.

2. Guipure Pencil Skirt
The pencil skirt goes romantic and feminine. Bonus points for looking just like Self Portrait.

3. Mirror Heel Ankle Boots
The mirror heels give these boots such a cool and futuristic touch.

4. Ruby Cherry Bomb Studs
Cherries are one of my favorite motifs and these earrings are so whimsical. These are included in the Shopbop Event Of The Season Sale.

5. Mirage Scallop Edge Dress
This looks like the perfect summer dress I love how the scalloped edges finish off the charming a-line silhouette.

6. Wool Cashmere Bomber Jacket 
Modern and classic at the same time, this jacket is just so appealing.

7. Oiled Shiny Trousers
The subtle shine and rufflles are so extra and I love it. They're on sale and I think I'm going to order them later today.

8. Scout Stretch Knit Sneaker
A nice combination of chic and quirky

You can always check out my running wish lists in the Shop With Me section on the blog. What are you coveting?
