Beauty Sleep: Dr. Jart+ Water-Max Sleeping Mask

26 May

Dr. Jart Water-Max Sleeping Mask

One would think that living in Asia for such a long period of time I would be familiar with most of Asian brands by now. But it so  happens that I keep on making my small discoveries every now and then, even when it comes to bigger and internationally known brands.

The Korean brand Dr. Jart+ is a good example. Some time ago I reviewed V7 Renewal Serum. I am still  using it, by the way (seems to go on forever). And now beauty sleep with Water-Max Sleeping Mask the same brand. Continue reading


A Clutch Of Fashion

19 May


Normally, I like to have my hands free, so a strap on my handbag is a must. Plus clutches always seemed to me more of an accessory then an actual bag.  Imagine yourself leaving the house in the morning to return back late in the evening – would the clutch bag fit everything you need? Continue reading

WEN …and the begining was so full of promise

WEN Cleansing Conditioner

If you remember my March Glossybox post (congratulations, you’ve got a memory like an elephant !), you might be able to recall one of the hot items I found inside which was WEN Cleansing Conditioner by Chaz Dean. Sulfate-free, non-foaming, cleansing and moisturizing conditioner 5-in-1 formula sounded a little too sensational. Continue reading

Holiday sampling

7 May

cleanser scrub mask

Wow! I’ve just realized that it has been a whole week without a post.  I think I just got carried away with all this euphoric Golden Week “I-don’t-need-to-go to-work” atmosphere. It doesn’t mean that my sampling stopped as well. I went through a  zillion of samples and some full – size bottles stashed for a rainy day, which we had a few in Tokyo. Continue reading

Fresh Summer Fragrances …

30 Apr


Seasons change, so the fragrances we wear.  I have spent last couple weeks trying to seek out  nice and fresh perfumes for summer, which is already in the city. Continue reading

April Glossybox

26 Apr


This month I decided that if I am going to stay subscribed, I might as well come up with something I like about Glossybox. Ongoing  love-hate relationship and monthly “rip off” posts  just got very tiresome and boring all of a sudden. The power of positive thinking! Continue reading

Dr. Jart+ V7 Renewal Serum Review

23 Apr

Dr. Jart + V7 Renewal Serum

Being a skin-care enthusiast I am always in a process  of  testing  new products  tearing open a sample or two every other day. Glossybox and  some online stores, which throw in a sample or two with my orders, provide  almost endless supply.  It sure helps to invest my money in the best possible way splurging on a full size. Continue reading

In full bloom

20 Apr

Floral shirt

I am officially on a shopping binge.  It is  time to  seek for professional help, maybe even join “shopaholic anonymous” – or whatever people usually do in situations like this. The best and the easiest would be simply to remove myself from the computer, since the internet is the main source of clothing in my size, but then I can’t blog. I believe it is called a Catch 22 situation. Continue reading

A Very English Affair

BSQ Shea Butter hand cream

For a hand cream buff I haven’t posted about my absolute beauty must-have  for quite a while.  There is a new favorite tube next to my computer, equally pleasant to  look at and to use – Berkeley Square Rose Petal Shea Butter Hand Cream. Continue reading

Arm party post

arm party

I like a bracelet or two, but can’t say that I am an ” arm party” person. However, it doesn’t  cease to amaze me how all those  colors and blinding rhinestones and metal can be matched together  and worn on one wrist.  It  is officially a new accessory movement, maybe even a form of  fashion art and a further proof that girls like to party: ) Continue reading
