TRENDING: RATTAN EARRINGS

Rattan-esque pieces seem to be very popular these days, one of the most trending pieces being the Rattan circle bag this Summer. In Korea Rattan earrings have already made there way through the shops months ago! I haven't been able to find any Rattan earrings in-store at any local shops which isn't too surprising since… Continue reading TRENDING: RATTAN EARRINGS

ORANGE SUMMER MAKEUP FT. MAYBELLINE LEMONADE CRAZE

I've been holding on to this palette since it was released. I was able to get it at a great price through Amazon pre-order! Unfortunately I haven't really been experimenting with eye looks lately so it's been pretty much sitting. The quality is really great for a drugstore brand and I loved that they included… Continue reading ORANGE SUMMER MAKEUP FT. MAYBELLINE LEMONADE CRAZE

MY WARDROBE DETOX & THOUGHTS ON MY INSTAGRAM HIATUS

Where do I even start?  I'll be turning 27 at the end of July and I've realized that the contents in my closet reflect an Anabel that I don't relate to anymore. An Anabel of years past. Lots of fast fashion and loud prints coupled with articles that downright don't look right on my body… Continue reading MY WARDROBE DETOX & THOUGHTS ON MY INSTAGRAM HIATUS

LANCOME HYDRA ZEN + TONIQUE CONFORT REVIEW

The first thing I noticed about this line was that it was very similar to what Korean brands put out on the market in that it claimed mega hydration and provided multiple steps like toner, essence, night mask, etc. Needless to say as a lover of Korean Beauty I was very intrigued. I've had great… Continue reading LANCOME HYDRA ZEN + TONIQUE CONFORT REVIEW

HOLIKA HOLIKA X PEKO COLLAB

When I first saw the sneak peak for this collaboration I was through the roof! Although I only eat Milky candies every now and then I understand the appeal for the mascot Peko-chan. In case you're also into Japanese urban legends here's a link to a story associated with the brand *TRIGGER WARNING* If you're… Continue reading HOLIKA HOLIKA X PEKO COLLAB

OOTD + GOOD EATS (06.01.2018)

I was really pumped this mid-afternoon because a local food truck said they were serving up ELOTE (mexican street corn) just for today. Unfortunately, when we got there they said they weren't serving it until later that evening. Whoever is in charge of their social media needs some training.. So my husband ended up finding… Continue reading OOTD + GOOD EATS (06.01.2018)

CHUU HAUL + -5KG COLLECTION

CHUU is one of my favorite Korean fashion brands! Their clothing and accessories are great quality and offer a cheaper alternative to brands like STYLENANDA and IMVELY, which are a tad bit more expensive. I like pretty and cute clothing but not overly so. Basically you probably won't see me in the popular pleated school… Continue reading CHUU HAUL + -5KG COLLECTION
