55% Lactic Acid Chemical Peel Review

This is the ultimate skin saver, I’m upset that I didn’t try chemical peels earlier. Makeup artist’s choice 55% Lactic Acid Chemical Peel Kit has completely changed my life! As you all know, I’m a huge fan of Makeup Artist’s Choice; I fell in love with their Mandelic Acid Toner (read the review HERE) , ended up moving up to the Mandelic Acid Serum (read the review here), and used it in combination with their Retinol serum. Yes, I was a huge fanatic and swore by their products – afterall, they were my holy grail! I carried these 3 essentials with me all the way to Hong Kong, where I dillegently used them everyday. I thought my skincare woes were gone forever, until I went back to the U.S. Suddenly, my skin wasn’t as clear as before and was actually getting worse. I blamed it on California’s weather (but please, our weather is perfect), I blamed it on the oily food I was eating (but I swear, I ate the same oily food back in HK). Basically, I didn’t know why my skin was breaking …

Youth Glow Eye Gel Review

Go Pure – Youth Glow Eye Gel Review

I’m only 22 and I’ve never used eye cream before. My motto before was always, “Don’t fix what isn’t broken, what’s natural is the best.” But now that I’m getting older, I realize that isn’t always the case. Eye cream is very important, afterall your eyes show your real age. I’m always worried that I’ll have wrinkles around my eyes, or dark eye circles… well thanks to Go Pure – Youth Eye Gel Review I don’t have to worry anymore! What I love about this product is that it is 100% NATURAL! Now, I’m a sucker for anything natural so I was so excited to try it out. It contains natural ingredients such as:  Plant Stem Cells Hyaluronic Acid Vitamin C Jojoba Oil Vitamin E and a Proprietary Peptide Complex and what’s great about the ingredient list is that I know about most of the products! Vitamin E is great for scarring. Jojoba oil is great for adding moisture. Hyaluronic plumps up your skin and helps with collagen. That’s just off the top of my head. All about the application Since this was …

Amara Organics Retinol Serum Review

I’m no newbie when it comes to Retinol. Actually, I’ve been using retinol steadily everyday for about 3 years now. One of my favorite serums is from Makeup Artist Choice, but their serums are quite pricey. So, after using their products for 3 years, I was excited to try a new serum! Amara organics offered me a chance to try their retinol serum which is 2.5%. The highest that I’ve ever had! Now, retinol is something that your skin has to get used to and for some – it’s very irritating, so be sure to test a a little bit on a patch of your skin first. Some background information about the serum A tried and true age-fighting ingredient that actually works, retinol is by the far the best thing you can do for your skin to combat the signs of aging. Retinol works on a molecular level to repair skin and stimulate collagen, resulting in firmer, smoother, wrinkle-free skin. Speeds up skin cell turnover, fading discoloration and improving texture to give your skin a healthy glow. …

SUSHI HOUSE GOYEMON Review

SUSHI HOUSE GOYEMON Frias Shopping Center, 5255 S Decatur Blvd #118, Las Vegas, NV 89118 After we went shopping at the outlet (where Brandon bought a new shirt and I bought a cardi) we quickly sped to our favorite sushi restaurant. Although the place opened at 12 and we got there at 12:15, it was completely packed and the hostess told us it would be a one hour wait.  Now, why is this place so popular? For about 25 dollars, you can have AYCE SUSHI. I’ve been eating AYCE sushi for the longest but yet this place is just so amazing. Mostly because of their desserts. Plus, there’s over 1,000 reviews on YELP  and they have 4 stars. Finally, after the long wait we headed in. My cousin drinking their pineapple sake. It was really refreshing and delicious! I love eating raw fish, so I opted for Salmon Nigiri along with Yellow Tail. I think I ate about 30 pieces of Salmon. Another thing they had was Seared Salmon, it was delicious and not a lot of places offer that. Brandon is …

Organic Dandelion Root Tea – With Hibiscus & Cinnamon Time for another review! Hopefully you guys aren’t too tired of my reviews by now, I know that lately my blog has been filled with so many… but I promise, just a few more reviews and then back to blogging about other things! Now, I don’t know if I’ve mentioned before… but I am not a fan of coffee. I mean, sure, if you follow me on Instagram you’ll see that I occasionally drink coffee – but that’s only if I have a long day ahead of me or if I have a weekend all to myself. I’ve heard plenty of horror stories about people who are so addicted to coffee (aka my sister) and they get headaches if they go a day without coffee. Oh the horror!  Cue to Kiss me Organics! They have an all natural & organic Dandelion Root Tea that is also infused with Hibiscus & Cinnamon! Now, I love love love tea! If you haven’t noticed, I’ve tried both the Herbalife Tea & Tiny Tea; but …

Pura d’or Hair & Body Care Review

Pura d’or Hair & Body Care Review This was seriously a gift from the heavens! I was so excited when I was gifted three products from  Pura d’or Hair & Body Care. My hair has been falling out so much that my sister told me that she noticed it was thinning. At 22 years old, that’s something that you don’t want to hear.

Sciascia Caffe 1919

Sciascia Caffe 1919 Via Fabio Massimo 80/A, 00192 Rome, Italy What a lovely little coffee shop! This place was a mere 5 minutes away from our hotel (walking distance) and was pretty easy to find. We liked it so much we came here two days in a row. They also have fresh coffee beans for sale, but sadly – we didn’t buy any. When you first enter, you are faced with a little “waiting/lobby area”. You can sip your coffee there while looking at the coffee beans (and people watch) or go inside the other room where you can order and sit down.  Looks delicious right? Well. It was amazingly good! Better than the other places we visited. The place itself is pretty nice, and the staff are all so friendly! Don’t be fooled, the coffee bar area was pretty crowded! Famous actors I don’t know… though the guy in the bottom Right looks familiar.

Il Brillo Parlante, Rome {Review}

Il Brillo Parlante   Via Della Fontanella 12, 00187 Rome, Italy (Campo Marzio) Trip advisor – Il Brillo Parlante After walking around the piazza del popolo, we decided to stop by here for a bite. On Tripadvisor, this place has 4 stars and 854 reviews so we thought it would be amazing. It was quite easy to find and overall, a very lovely restaurant.    We ended up ordering the Carbonara and my sister got a pizza (sorry, forgot the name of it). While my cabonara was decent – you’ll find that I didn’t really like any of the food in Italy – my sister said that her pizza was pretty bland. Out of my whole trip, this was the best cabonara I had and honestly… that’s not really saying much. Most of the cabonara I had were extremely salty.

San Crispino Gelato

  San Crispino Gelato Via della Panetteria 42 00187 Rome After seeing Trevi Fountain we checked tripadvisor to see if there were any famous gelato places in the area. Of course, the streets were littered with gelato places so we had a tough time figuring out which one to buy. My sister said San Crispino had raving reviews, I think it might be due to the fact that it is ridiculously close to the famous landmark. Now, this place was sort of hard to find due to the numerous alleys that Rome has. We walked by it the first time and after searching harder the second time – we finally found it. Due to the fact that we were there early, we were surprised to find that it was completely empty! Lucky us, we had heard there was always a line… so we were glad that we didn’t have to deal with crowds.
