What I’m Packing {Makeup}

{Makeup} I have no doubt I’ll be buying lots of makeup in Hong Kong, so for my trip I packed very lightly. These items are items you have already seen from my makeup kit (previous entries); but the newest item that I just bought before I left is the “Big Easy BB cream” from Benefit. Big Easy better than BB cream – Benefit You can read my review on this lovely foundation here

LA EATS { Seongbukdong }

Seongbukdong Review  3303 W 6th St Los Angeles, CA 90020 Koreatown, Wilshire Center So, before we had dessert at the wonderful Caffe Bene  we got to go eat Lunch here. My friend yelped it and it had great reviews, two of the most famous dishes were the “Braised Short Rib & Mackerel”. Yelp also claimed that there was always a long wait, so we were pretty excited to go! I wanted KBBQ but since we were in KTOWN, we decided to have korean food that we wouldn’t be able to get in Cerritos or Anaheim. No wonder Yelp said this place always had a long wait… it is tiny! But everything about it was very homely and comfortable so I can’t really complain. The food You probably can’t tell from this picture (or maybe you can) but the Braised short rib was pretty small. The server even told us it was fit for ONE PERSON. Guess how much it was? It was like 33 dollars! Sorry, but it reminded me of Bo Kho or something. It …

My Acne Story

Aren’t you guys lucky? Not only do you guys get to see me pimply, but also my weight gain. Oh well, I don’t care. These pictures are all available on Facebook (the most horrible one is – thanks to my best friend). I never thought in a million years that I would make a post like this, because I never thought I would be comfortable in my own skin. It just didn’t seem possible to me. I made this post to show and tell others that it does get better.. over time.  I’ve struggled with acne around the end of highschool (a little in middle school, but honestly… kids made fun of anyone who had a pimple here and there). I remember looking up posts of Frmheadtotoea nd QiuQiu and marveling at how well their skin turned out. They all suffered from acne and cleared up their skin.I also remember waiting for my skin to get better and hoping that I would grow out of it. After a while, I gave up. I never thought my skin would be …

What I did – 4th of July!

Preparing for the 4th Of July !  Hopefully you guys all had an amazing weekend filled with lots of BBQed food and drinks! Usually, July 4th isn’t that big of a deal for me… my parents and I just spend it at the beach watching fireworks. This year was different, I got to celebrate July 4th with Brandon and it was preeetttyyy amazing! He surprised me by taking me to the Marriott hotel near Disneyland. Our original plans were to go to Disney but our plans got ruined… nonetheless, we had a great night! We ate in, watched some Key & Peele, and had the time of our lives!  Remember my spa water post? Their water was especially tasty. This is the first time we stayed at the Marriott hotel; Brandon usually gets the Hyatt or Holiday Inn. Out of all the hotels I would say this is one of the nicest rooms we’ve gotten (behind the Omni). The price was pretty affordable also. Although the room was really nice, the scenery and surroundings couldn’t compete with …
