ZIIP, ZIIP device, ZIIP Beauty

Super excited about my new ZIIP beauty device! Yes I do buy things off my wish lists! This was a splurge which my enabler husband convinced me to go for. I've only used it once so far with good results and hope to post a full review after I've spent some more time with it.

Listening...  to FT Island's Over 10 Years. Wind is such a gorgeous song and they rock it live!

Reading...  Rich People Problems by Kevin Kwan.  I loved Crazy Rich Asians so I'm glad it's evolved into a trilogy. And the first book is currently being made into a movie with actual Asian actors!

Watching... Suspicious Partner. Part rom-com, part murder mystery and quite fun! This show is making me remember how much I enjoy Ji Chang Wook as an actor.

Want to watch... Beautiful Accident. This film looks so heartwarming and fun and it features Gwei Lun Mei and Chen Kun who are two faves.

Eating... salad and grain bowls. As the weather gets warmer, I've been experimenting with dinner options that require less cooking and it's also a great way to eat even more vegetables.  How did I not realize how easy it it to make Niçoise Salad at home.

Wearing... high waist cropped jeans and silk blouses rediscovered from my last closet clean out.

Got my hands on... the Hanacure All-In-One Facial, the Instagram famous K-Beauty mask that's gone viral for making you appear old when you have it on and then younger after you rinse it off. Check out these before and after photos! I'll do a review with my impressions after I've tried it.

Making more time... for detox baths. I've been taking at least one bath a week for about 3 years now as part of wellness/self-care regimen and since reading several articles about how a hot bath could have similar effects to exercise, I've been trying to step it up to a few more. I still work out but I wouldn't mind more benefits from something I enjoy doing anyway.

Looking forward to...  working our way through our list of restaurants to try this summer. Gotta take advantage of NYC's vibrant dining scene.

What's up with you?

I love your husband Rowena! What a great purchase! Please let us know how you like it, once you test it out. I love reading about rich people! Gotta get that book.

Looking forward to your review on the ZIIP device, Rowena and you got yourself an amazing hubby indeed! And about time a Asian book is made into a movie with Asian actors, I don't know why Hollywood can't embrace that.

I love posts like this, I've been looking into some salad and grain bowl recipes as summer approaches so I can have some nice and healthy meals.

I had no idea that a hot bath would have the same effect as exercise, wow. Definitely good to know. I'd love to read those books Rowena, they sound fun. And that is one great purchase, go hubby!!!

I have to check out Rich People Problems, it sounds hilarious. Ohhh Suspicious Partner looks like my kind of show. I’ve been eat a lot more salads lately, but I need to add more grains into my diet. Detox baths are awesome, thank you for reminding me to take one.

Love a hot bath especially with my favourite essential oils, dear! xoxo

Oh my that mask sounds AMAZING!! I will check it out. And yes all about the cropped high waist jeans and blouses.

I never knew baths could have the similar effects as exercising. Good to know since I love taking baths! That mask sounds like something I would like to try! Have a great week Rowena!

I would like to watch JCW's show! Hope that I can get hold of it somewhere. I've just made a post similar to this one (and others of yours) where I'm listing what I've been up to lately. Thanks for the inspiration!

I'm so jealous suspicious partner is not available in my country, I need to take a walk this Friday to German border, maybe it'll work in Germany :D I've never heard about ZIIP beauty device but if it comes to beauty devices I want wayskin so badly but when I checked the price and how much I'll have to pay for ordering it from USA or Korea I thought that I have to wait and get it during my trip to Taiwan than ordering it now.

Midnight Cowgirl said...

I'm planning on reading Rich People Problems this week. It sounds great!

It's nice to know that you buy things off of your wish list, I do as well ... The ZIIP device looks like a dream. I think it's good to splurge like that occasionally. Have a great start to the week.
