Beauty Recipes

There used to be a time when I would walk in a beauty shop (any shop, not just korean ones…but even more so when I found out about k-beauty) and roam around, searching for that perfect, colorful, eye-catching item. To be honest, what mattered the most to me was to find a cute item to bring home. I wouldn’t look at the label, I wouldn’t bother trying to figure out about formulations or ingredients within the product. If it was cute and had a pleasant scent (and possibly pink), it had to be mine. Period.

Korea: a love story

Korea: a love story

Gab and I visited South Korea for the first time in April 2012 (I know we’re just talking about a few years, but it already seems a lifetime ago). A few months later, Gab and I got married on a sunny, warm June afternoon. Thinking back to that experience, I came to realize that our South Korean adventure was much more than just one of our travels around the globe: it was a honeymoon in advance and, as time passed by, it became something that completely turned our lives upside-down –in an extraordinarily good way!
