12 Things ♥ Over The Weekend

12 Things Over The Weekend
Last week was more eventful for me than most weeks so I decided I would post some things that happened to me from the previous week. Let me know if you guys enjoy these short but sweet posts.

- Took Lucy to the vet, twice.
- Saw a wild Turkey.
- Went to Target 4 times (3 of those were in a row).
- Bought some Tsum Tsum socks.
- Saw two of the biggest dogs I have ever seen.
- On Friday night, my sister and I heard a loud noise in our neighborhood. Later we realized it was just some stray cats having loud sex.
- Watched High School Musical 2.
- Received the sweetest from Michelle. Check out her blog and Instagram if you love Kbeauty!
- Went out to eat with my family and ate something over 1000 calories.....and finished it. Not the best decision I made over the weekend.
- Spent pretty much my whole paycheck (remember I said I wasn't gonna buy anything? lol).
- Listened to IU's new album about 7 times.
- Sold 4 items on Depop.

Unicorns, Depop & Crochet Problems ♥ Weekly Edit

weekly edit
#1 Over the weekend we got security cameras installed around our house because when we went to Florida a couple weekends ago we got robbed. This is our second time getting robbed so my parents finally decide to do something so we now have cameras all over the house. Now I can't do embarrassing things around the house because my family members can easily access the cameras via app. Thankfully the cameras don't have audio so I can still sing at the top of my lungs! So that's a relief. lol

#2 If you follow me on Twitter then you know that I'm selling some stuff on Depop. I have a wide variety of items and plan to add some books and clothing over the weekend. If you have a Depop account definitely check out my shop and help a girl out.

#3 I decided to post some of my past crochet items in my Depop shop because I have so many crocheted items and I have no idea what to do with them. I have tons of ideas for a reopening but doubt myself because I haven't had that many success with my shop lately, which is the reason why it takes me forever to reopen my shop. Another mistake that I always make is that I want to create mini collections but then I end up making lots of crocheted items and then they don't sell hence lots of leftovers. Anyways, what I wanted to ask you guys is what I should do with all of my old stock?

#4 If you ever feel like you are in a slump I highly recommend you to work out because it always puts me in a positive mood, it's the endorphins! Just do it!

#5 I'm loving Lana Del Rey's new song Lust For Life it's my current earworm.

#6 By now you probably heard of the unicorn frappuccino. I'm actually surprised Starbucks decided to advertise this drink. As a Starbucks enthusiast, whenever I hear of a new drink from Starbucks I am the first to hear of any Starbucks news. They've had many frappuccinos in the past that weren't as talked about as the Unicorn drink. All I saw on Wednesday was pictures of the Unicorn Frappuccino. With that said. After trying it I think it tastes like Skittles!

#7 We took Lucy to the vet today. The house feels so empty without her.

Elizavecca Gold CF-Nest White Bomb Eye Cream ♥ Beauty Review

Elizavecca Gold CF-Nest White Bomb Eye Cream Review
I believe that you should start using an eye cream as around your 20s because you don't want premature eye wrinkles, do you? Today I will be reviewing an eye cream that I've mentioned on my blog for the past couple of months. The Elizavecca Gold CF-Nest White Bomb Eye Cream is an anti-aging cream that whitens, hydrate and reduces wrinkles. This is no regular eye cream though it's also a botox cream! It can reduce the appearance of fine lines, forehead wrinkles, laugh lines, crows feet and even neck wrinkles. I've mainly used this around my eyes but I would tap leftover residue on my forehead so I can only share those experiences with you.

Elizavecca Gold CF-Nest White Bomb Eye Cream Review
Elizavecca Gold CF-Nest White Bomb Eye Cream Review
Description
"Moisture soft absorption giving dull eye areas intensive care."

Pros
- Moisturizing
- Hydrating
- Soothing
- Affordable
- Refreshing
- Cute packaging
- Doesn't irritate my eyes
- Easy application
- Suitable for all skin types

Cons
- Not that whitening

My Experience
I apply the Elizavecca Gold CF-Nest White Bomb Eye Cream every morning and night I've moisturized. The texture of this cream is pretty thick but it dissolves into the skin pretty quick though. It has a light scent but it's not even noticeable so if you have sensitive skin then I would recommend this eye cream.

The packaging of this eye cream intrigued me because of the easy to apply tube packaging and obviously the cute piggy illustration. This cream is moisturizing, hydrating, soothing, refreshing and doesn't irritate my eyes. Most of the eye creams I've used in the past have stung my eyes so to find an eye cream that doesn't aggravate my eyes and performs well is a winner in my book!

The only negative thing I have to say about this eye cream is that it's not that whitening. So if you have raccoon dark circles then this won't completely get rid of them but it may reduce a certain amount of the shadow.

My Rating
♥♥♥♥ out of ♥♥♥♥♥

Would you repurchase?
Yes and I have! This is my second tube and certainly not my last!

You can purchase the Elizavecca Gold CF-Nest White Bomb Eye Cream here

Currently Loving ♥ April 2017

Currently Loving
Since I didn't publish any favorites posts this month I thought I would include a couple of my current favorite bits with you. I might feature some of these in my April favorites so consider this a sneak peek.

Watching // I'm actually watching a couple of different shows at the moment which is odd because I never watch that many shows at the same time but I've been watching these programs in the background while I'm doing something else. Another show I want to start watching again is Avatar: The Last Air Bender but sadly it's not on Hulu or Netflix. Does anybody now where I can watch it?

The Office - I wanted a comical show that I could newly enjoy and since I never any of the seasons from The Office entirely I decide to start watching from season 1.

Sailor Moon R - A couple months ago I mentioned that I had been watching the original Sailor Moon from the beginning. I currently on the Sailor Moon R portion of the series. As you can see I'm not much of a binge watcher. lol

The Great British Bake Off - I follow a lot of British bloggers and every now and then they would mention The Great British Bake Off so I always made a mental note to watch it if the chance came. One day while browsing through the Netflix catalog I saw that they had this show so I began to watch it and love it! All the different desserts they make in one episode is so impressive!

Excited For // Splatoon 2! It's coming out July 21 a week after my birthday!

Listening //
Lee Hae Ri - Pattern
IU - Can't Love You Anymore
Katy Perry - Chained To The Rhythm
Babylon - Ocean Drive (ft. San E) 
WINNER - Fool
DAY6 - I'm Serious
Hyolyn + Changmo - Blue Moon
Cross Country - HA:TFELT, Kim Bohyung + Suran

Working On // Over the weekend I shared a sneak peek at another one of my crochet projects on my Instagram story. If you saw, let me know what you think of my creations so far. Any feedback is better than none. For those of you who weren't lucky enough to see that story don't worry I will be uploading a posting a crochet update soon.

Eating // Something I've been obsessed with recently is the Chobani Flips. My mom would bring some from work and I was always intrigued by them. On one side there is a flavored yogurt and on the other, are an assorted mix of treats that you flip on top of your yogurt, mix and eat! These are super indulgent and the perfect midday treat. My favorite flavors are the Strawberry Summer Crisp, Carrot Cake Creation, and Cinnamon Bun Fun.

Best To Worst Week ♥ Weekly Thoughts

Weekly Thoughts
#1 Last weekend's trip to Destin, Florida was really nice. We left Friday morning and came back Sunday afternoon. It was a quick trip but it was nice to get out of town and explore a new area. We stay at a very walk-friendy area and there were lots of stores we could easily walk to. You can view a haul here. We even brought Lucy with us and stayed at a decent pet-friendly hotel. Even though I didn't go to the beach at all because I hate beaches I still had a delightful time.

#2 Whenever I go on a trip with my family for some reason I always feel really fat. I know car trips make me bloated and gross but I still feel like a whale and just cry in the bathroom as a result. I always promise myself that I'm going to work out like crazy and eat healthy when I go home but usually just end up binge eating and feel super guilty afterward.

#3 I started watching The Office whilst on our trip to Destin. I never watched The Office religiously but would watch a couple episodes from time to time. I'm excited to watch all the seasons and have a good laugh.

#4 I also started and finished 13 Reasons Why. A lot of people were talking about how sad and depressing the show was and how it made people cry. Honestly, I didn't cry but I felt very unsatisfied with the ending. There are so many unanswered questions!

#5 Lucy is in heat right now. We haven't got her spayed yet but really should because I'm tired of her leaving blood stains all over the place.

#6 Speaking of Lucy, she peed on my pink crocheted rug. I was just about to switch out my rugs for Spring too! I guess I need to make another one.

#7 Just got my taxes done and I want to cry. Have a wonderful weekend!

My Top 10 Favorite Tsum Tsums

My Top 10 Favorite Tsum Tsums
You guys know how much I love me some Tsum Tsums. I've been collecting them for a couple years now and they are just cute bundles of joy that make me incredibly happy! The other day I read a post where someone selected their top 5 Tsum Tsums (sorry no link because I forgot where I read it) that inspired to share my favorite Tsum Tsums. Choosing just 5 Tsum Tsums was too difficult so I choose 10 instead, which was just as hard! haha

My Top 10 Favorite Tsum Tsums
Kawaii Minnie and Marie - I'm all about details! So any Tsum Tsum with extra details fascinate me. The Minnie and Marie were part of a set that I bought last off of the Disney Store. Their outfits are so cute! 

Minnie Bat - The Minnie in a bat costume was part of the Disney Japan Halloween 2016 collection. The features on the Japanese Tsum Tsums are remarkable!

My Top 10 Favorite Tsum Tsums
ShellieMay - For those who don't know of ShellieMay she is a friend made for Duffy (there's a book on their friendship that is so cute!). I adore Duffy and his crew of friends, they're so adorable! I can't wait until they release the Stella Lou Tsum Tsum!

Baymax - Baymax is one of my favorite Disney characters so of course, this Tsum Tsum made it into my top 10.

Young Oyster - The oyster story in Alice In Wonderland is one of the least favorite moments in the film. Their optimistic innocent look is what I love about this Tsum Tsum. This is also one of my first Japanese Tsum Tsums. Japanese Tsum Tsums are made softer and their details are always perfect. If you compare the quality of this Tsum Tsum next to a Target you will notice a huge difference!

Snowgies - I loved Frozen but one thing I hate about Frozen is that character, Olaf. Don't get me wrong he's sweet and comical but he's so ugly! I wish they would've designed him like the Snowgies from Frozen Fever instead. I hope to see more Snowgies in Frozen 2.

My Top 10 Favorite Tsum Tsums
Heimlich - Look at this cutie! His face is everything! How could this Tsum Tsum not make it into my top 10?

Marie - Marie is another one of my favorite Disney characters so I had to include her as well. She's sassy yet classy and that's what I love about her!

Pua - When I was watching Moana I was really excited to see Pua. However, if you have seen Moana you know that Pua is only in a few scenes. I wish they would've included Pua in the film more instead of that annoying rooster.

Rapunzel - Rapunzel is my favorite Disney princess and actually before Tangled was released I never really had a favorite Disney princess. I love Rapunzel because she reminds me a lot of myself. Again, I love the details on this Tsum Tsum, especially the flowers in her hair!

Cruelty-Free Beauty Haul ♥ Ulta & Lush

Cruelty Free Haul
I'm back from my trip to Destin, Florida! I actually arrived Sunday afternoon but was too exhausted to write a post for Monday, hence why there was not post yesterday. It was a quick trip but it was nice to get out of town and explore a new area. Of course, I bought a couple things whilst in Destin so I'm here to share what I purchased. I didn't buy anything exciting just a couple necessities and a some beauty items.

Cruelty Free Haul
At Ulta, I picked up the Mario Badescu Rosewater Spray because I needed a face mist to freshen my face. I also bought some Essence mascaras because I heard they're amazing. They were having a buy one get one 50% off deal so I bought both of the Lash Princess mascaras. While I was browsing through the beauty aisles I found a lip balm by Shea Moisture that caught my attention. I'm currently using a lip balm from a non-cruelty free brand so I decided to buy this for when my other one finishes.

Cruelty Free Haul
Whilst in Florida we stayed at a hotel that was pretty close to a shopping plaza that had a Lush. I bought another bottle of the No Drought Dry Shampoo, aka my favorite dry shampoo ever! I got the smaller size because last time I bought the bigger bottle it lasted a long time (i actually only threw it out because it expired). I also bought two masks, Cupcake (another Lush favorite) and Cup O' Coffee. I never heard of the Cup O' Coffee mask before but it's coffee related so I had to buy it. I've tried the coffee mask once and it's more of a scrub than a mask.

Stressful Week ♥ Weekly Thoughts

Weekly Thoughts
#1 Can you guess what's that in the picture? It's a pastry in the shape of a turtle. I've wanted to open a crochet cafe and bakery with animal shaped bread-like amigurumi keychains and sell them in my Etsy shop. I've attempted many pieces in the past but was unsuccessful each time. What are your thoughts on this idea? Would you be interested? Any ideas?

#2 I decided to skip my monthly favorites for March because I didn't really have any (that I can remember anyways) I did have a few lifestyle items to share but not too many that it deserved a whole post I will just include those in my April favorites. I don't think I have missed a monthly favorites post since last summer!

#3 My first Yesstyle order finally came in yesterday and I wasn't too thrilled. I ordered four items and it cost around $50 and I don't think it was worth it! I bought a shirt dress, 2 pinafore dresses, and a black beret. The shirt dress was too tight around my chest. One of the dresses was shorter  (Damn you boobs!) than I thought and it looks more like a top than a dress. Maybe I will post a review and haul about my order because I have a lot of unexpressed thoughts.

#4 This week was a really stressful for me. Monday and Wednesday we had strong serve storms and many tornado watches. Thankfully we didn't get hit by any just heavy waves of storms. This weekend I plan on relaxing and destressing out.

#5 My new favorite Korean girl group is Dream Catcher! They are a rookie group and only have a couple songs out right now but I really admire how different they are compared to other girl groups out right now. They sound like a Japanese girl group because they have a rock/metal sound with eerie music videos. I hope they become successful with this concept.

#6 It was Lucy's 3 year anniversary yesterday and I made a cute little post which you can read here.

#7 As you are reading this I will be on my way to the beach! I hate beaches but I just want to leave the house and go on a relaxing weekend trip. I hope you have a wonderful weekend!

3 Years Together

Today marks our 3 year anniversary with Lucy. How we managed to get Lucy was pretty random so I thought I would tell the tale of how this lovely Pomeranian came into my life.

It was just another Sunday morning, parent's shuffling through pots and pans as they prepared their breakfast. I tend to sleep-in on the weekends so I was sound asleep when I was awoken with a knock on my door. It was my mother and she said that she had found out that there was a pair of puppies that a friend of a relative was selling via Facebook. I looked through the pictures and that's when I saw two mini puffs of joy! The only catch was that they were located in Tennessee so we had to drive there to pick them up. We quickly got ready and jumped in the car and my parents, me and younger sister made our journey to Tennessee.

Everything seemed perfect that I was waiting for something to go wrong because this was so sudden and my parents didn't really want a dog. Plus, nothing ever is this perfect in my life! Along the way, we made a quick stop at Walmart and bought some basic puppy like a carrying case, treats, toys, and a baby blanket, which Lucy still sleeps with.

After a 6-8 hour drive, we made it to our destination. There were four dogs, the parent's and Lucy's twin sister (I never found out who was younger or older). We arrived first so we had first pick (Another family was on the way to get the other puppy). The dogs were a mix breed but they had strong Pomeranian features. One of the puppies was a light almost white blonde puppy and she was constantly following and playing with her mother (This is where Lucy get's her wild side from). Lucy's dad was calmly laying on the floor next to his owner. The other puppy was a dirty blonde with a dark nose who was hiding under the living room table, Lucy. After observing them for a couple minutes I knew I wanted Lucy because she seemed like the independent loner type, like me. Plus, I didn't want to separate the other puppy from her mother so early. We paid the seller and they gave us some dog food and we left with Lucy.

I held Lucy in the palms of my hands for the first hour of the drive back home. She didn't whine or anything and fell asleep in my hands. I eventually placed her in the carrying case because I was afraid she would pee on me. We arrived home before midnight and she spent her first night in my room with me. That's the story of how Lucy became a member of the family! I can't believe it's been three years since this happened! Time goes by so quickly!

Do you have any pets?

Night Skincare Routine ♥ Spring 2017

Night Skincare Routine
As mentioned in my morning routine my night routine is longer than most because I follow the Korean beauty 10-step method. I've been following this process for a couple years and have seen a huge difference in how my skin looks which is why I continue to follow it. I go through products pretty quickly so I am always switching and using new products. In fact, I'm currently using different products from what's pictured in the photos and these were only taken a few weeks ago! Keep in mind that the 10-step Korean skincare method may not be for everybody but I encourage everybody to at least add one to your skin care routine.

Night Skincare Routine
*Step 1: Makeup Removal
If I wore makeup that day then the first thing I would do is remove my makeup with some micellar water. I didn't include the product I use because it's not cruelty-free and I'm still trying to finish it.

Step 2: Cleansing Oil - Innisfree Bija Trouble Cleansing Gel
Double cleansing is something that I never thought was necessary until I read an article on why you should double cleanse, now I use it every time I wash my face! You use a cleansing oil (or gel) to remove leftover makeup residue and sunscreen. Sunscreen is especially difficult to remove so if you use sunscreen daily (which you should!) I recommend you to start double cleansing.

Step 3: Cleanser - COSRX Low pH Good Morning Gel Cleanser
Usually, the second cleanser is a foam cleanser but I use gel cleanser instead because gels are lighter and less drying then foam cleansers. Make sure to find the right cleansing products that suit your skin when it comes to double cleansing.

Step 4: Toner - COSRX One Step Pimple Clear Pads
These pimple pads have replaced the toner step in my skincare regime. I only use these at night because they are kind of pricey and if I used them at morning and night then I would go through them pretty fast. So I use the Klairs toner in the morning and the COSRX clear pads at night.

Step 5: BHA - COSRX BHA Blackhead Power Liquid
BHA/AHA liquids are kind of complicated to explain. Let me know if you want me to make a post on the difference between the two. Basically, BHA is a light exfoliate that is suppose to help diminish blackheads. The COSRX is pretty popular but I'm not sure if it works or not.

Step 6: Sheet Mask
It's now been a year since I've decided to use a sheet mask every night. A lot of Korean celebrities swear that using a mask a day is the secret to perfect skin, which is why I decided to start using them daily. I will be posting an updated sheet mask experience post sometime later this month.

Night Skincare Routine
Step 7: Emulsion - Secret Key Snail Repairing Emulsion
It's layering time! There are many different products you can use like essence, emulsion, serum, ampoule, etc. I don't think it's necessary to use all these products in a single routine so I only pick two. When layering skincare products you should do it based on the consistency of the product. It's also important to let every product sink in so that it completely absorbs into the skin.

*Step 8: Serum - OST Orginal Pure Vitamin C20 Serum
The second layer I am currently using is a vitamin C serum. There are many benefits of using a vitamin C serum such as even out skin tone, whitening, pore tightening, anti-aging, etc. I don't recommend the OST Vitamin C20 Serum I'm currently using because it's thick and sticky, which is why I skip this product every night (Don't use vitamin C serum in the morning btw). I heard that the upgraded C21.5 Advance Serum is way better.

Step 9: Cream/Moisturizer - Good Things Overnight Clearing Serum
I know this is described as a serum but it's so thick that I use it as a night cream instead. Fun fact, in Korea they use the word cream instead of moisturizer.

Step 10: Eye Cream - Elizavecca Gold Cf-Nest White Bomb Eye Cream
Finally the last step, eye cream. If you are over the age of 20 and don't use an eye cream every morning and night then you should consider it. Eye creams help prevent premature eye wrinkles, fine lines and hydrated your under eye area. This is my favorite Korean eye cream that I use and would recommend it to those that are new to the world of eye creams.

*Step 11: Sleeping Pack - Too Cool For School Pumpkin Sleeping Pack
On days when I feel like my skin needs extra hydration I apply on a sleep pack. You apply sleep packs/masks at night and wash off in the morning. Back during Winter, I would follow this step every night due to the dry weather but now that it's Spring I usually skip this step now.

*I don't follow these steps everyday just when I feel the need to be extra.

April 2017 Goals ♥ Blog & LIfestyle

April 2017 Goals
I didn't post a monthly goals post in March because I didn't really have any. Plus, I didn't really accomplish that many of my goals in February so I decided to just drag those onto March. Now I am back with a fresh new set of monthly goals!

Blog
1. Communicate With Bloggers More
There are tons of time when I see a tweet or post via SNS that I can relate to or have a comment on but never reply to. The reason I don't is because I am afraid of being ignored. There have been a couple times where I've commented on something someone has said and never gotten a reply which is why I don't comment as much as I use to. I know people have busy lives and may forget (Happens to me all the time) but no one likes to be ignored. Anyways, I am going to comment to people on Blogs, Twitter and Instagram without caring if they decided to reply.

2. Try Not To Miss Any Posts In April
So far this year I've at least missed one or more posts either by accident or on purpose. This has driven me crazy because I don't like missing blog posts on days when I have a post schedule. In April, I hope to not miss a single day and post 4 blog posts a week.

Lifestyle
1. Continue Working Out In The Morning
In March I complete 2 weeks of exercising in the morning! I've never been a person to workout in the morning because I like to cherish my mornings and do other things like prepare a nice breakfast. So when I did work out it would in the evening (Somethings even past midnight!) because that was the most convenient time for me. But working out in the morning has completely changed my life! I feel more energized in the morning, happier and get sleepy at an appropriate time so I am going to continue this routine for as long as I can!

2. Buy New Makeup
I feel like I've been using the same makeup for the longest time. The same foundation, concealer, mascara(s), lip products, etc. Hence the reason why I haven't posted that much about makeup. I do have a list of products I want to try but I'm waiting for a couple events to happen before I decided to spurge on makeup.

3. Start Crocheting Again
So I actually already started this goal but I thought I would throw this in here to remember to keep on going. I've attempted to open my show many times and have failed many times but this time I am going to try something different this time and ask for your feedback as I whip up new creations. I will be posting sneak peeks of my new projects on my Instagram so make sure to follow me if you are interested in my crochet adventures.

Can You Feel It? ♥ Weekly Thoughts

Weekly Thoughts
#1 Can I just say that I'm so proud of Highlight/B2ST! I've been a fan of them for years but when they decided to leave their previous company I thought they would just disband like most K-pop groups but they actually decided to create their own company. Now they are back and topping the charts and winning music programs which I'm so proud of! If you haven't listened to Plz Don't Be Sad then you really should.

#2 I went to Sprouts for the first time last weekend and it was amazing! They have so many vegetarian/vegan alternatives and healthy food! I can't wait to visit Sprouts again.

#3 This week it's been too hot for me to function! When I think of Spring I think of 60-70 degree weather.with light winds but Georgia thinks overwise. This week has been filled with isolated storms and 80-degree weather which is too hot for me! Is it Spring or Summer?

#4 Remember when I said I ordered some new Spring clothes? Would you guys be interested in a Spring clothing haul? I never know how to take clothing pictures though because I want to show you the entire piece but don't know how to take a picture without wearing it or using awkward angles. Any tips?

#5 This morning I saw a huge wasp in our house and freaked out! I love spring but I can't stand bugs and sadly spring is when all these bugs wake up. The worst part is that Lucy doesn't like to pee on puppy pads so we always have to open the door for her so she lets in all the bugs.

#6 Goblin update; there is no update because I stopped watching it. I made it to episode 5 and just couldn't get into the drama. If any of you have suggestions for a new drama to start let me know.

#7 Happy Friday! Have a wonderful weekend!

Mini Kbeauty Haul ♥ Innisfree & Elizavecca

Mini Kbeauty Haul
I use up skincare products like wildfire! It feels like every week I am buying a new Kbeauty product. Last week I bought a couple new items that I wanted to share with you today. It's mainly on Innisfree products but I also threw in another non-Innisfree product. There isn't too much to show so let's get started!

Mini Kbeauty Haul
Innisfree Bija Trouble Facial Foam
I recently finished my Cosrx Low Ph Good Morning Gel Cleanser so I was in need of a new cleanser. Now I would usually buy the same cleanser again because my skin is really picky but I decided against it and bought the Innisfree Biji Trouble Facial Foam. I've been using the cleansing gel from the same collection and it's been working great with my skin so thought maybe the cleanser would work with my skin type as well.

Innisfree Green Tea Balancing Lotion
I was running low on emulsion so I looked for one online and this one popped up. I've heard a lot of positive feedback on the Innisfree Green Tea collection(s) so I decide to buy this emulsion. I'm not crazy about the smell (It smells like men's cologne) but it quickly goes away as it absorbs into the skin. I've only been using this for a couple days but so far so good.

Mini Kbeauty Haul
Elizavecca Gold CF-Nest White Bomb Eye Cream
I know this isn't an Innisfree product but I thought I would sneak it into this haul. This is my second time purchasing the Elizavecca Gold CF-Nest White Bomb Eye Cream. It's a wonderful product that hydrates the eye area. If you are new to eye creams I would recommend this one. A review will be up sometime in April.

Mini Kbeauty Haul
Innisfree It's Real Squeeze Masks
As you guys know I use a sheet mask every night so I go through them pretty quickly. My go-to masks are the Tony Moly I'm Real Sheet Masks and Innisfree It's Real Squeeze Masks. This is my 4-5 time buying a set of Innisfree sheet masks. If you are looking for a set of affordable and good quality masks I recommend the

Mini Happy Planner Spread ♥ First Week Of Spring

Mini Happy Planner Spread
Ever since I bought a Mini MAMBI Happy Planner I wanted to show you guys how I decorate it because it's very different from the original Happy Planner. First off, it's a lot smaller which means there is not as much space to add stickers and to write in. Second, it has a horizontal layout (The original size Happy Planner has a vertical layout) which I'm familiar with because before I started using the MAMBI planners I used a Ban.do planner which also had a horizontal layout. If you would like to see more planner spreads let me know so I can post more in the future.

Mini Happy Planner Spread
Here is an overview of the spread. There was no theme but since this was the first week of spring I wanted a more bright look so I added yellow washi tape to liven things up. The washi tape that I use is actually bigger than the lines on the planner but I don't really mind this. I mostly used Sprinkled Pug stickers because I'm currently obsessed with her stickers especially her mini sticker sheets because they are the perfect fit for this planner.

Mini Happy Planner Spread Here is a close up. I divided the boxes in half to create more space. On the left side I have my tasks I want to accomplish that day. On the right side, I have a section for my workouts. I find writing down my workouts encourages me to exercise more, something about marking each workout video satisfies me. I use a bullet style checklist instead of a simple 'X' or check mark because I like filling in the circles. lol

One of my favorite things about this planner is that it features a note section with a cute weekly box. Each week offers a different quote, weekly highlight, word of the week, etc. This week they included a quote. "Everything is hard before it is easy."

Can we just talk about how amazing this palette it? The rose gold palette is just so beautiful! I'm not even someone who is a fan of rose gold colored things and I was drawn to this palette! The Pony Effect Customizing Lip Palette is exactly that - a palette where you can personalize your own lip color. I bought this a couple months ago and I thought I would share my thoughts on the palette and whether it's worth your money or not.

For those who don't know who Pony is, she's a famous Korean makeup artist who also makes videos on Youtube. Pony Effect her line that she collaborated with Memebox. I've always wanted a product from Pony Effect and this is my first product and I'm really excited to share it with you all! Let's get started!

The palette comes with a sheet of stickers that you can use to decorate your palette with. Not gonna lie this was one of the reasons why I decided to buy the palette. hehe

"This super customizable palette stars 5 base colors and 5 tone-adjusting hues so you can play around with endless shades to perfect any look. The sleep case even features a thumb hole so you can create your masterpiece with effortless hold and ease. Plus, it comes with a nifty dual-ended brush with a pointed silicone end for mixing and a flat end for smooth application."

Cons
- Feels cheap
- Messy
- Thumb hole was unnecessary
- Palette too reflective

My Experience
The Pony Effect Customizing Lip Palette comes with 10 lip shades, a dual ended brush with spatula, a mirror, mixing plate and a thumb hole all encased in a very trendy rose gold palette. The lip colors are surprisingly more pigment than they look, they're also creamy and moisturizing on the lips. The also colors blend in easily with each other creating gorgeous shades. The palette comes with two mirrors but you are supposed to use the bottom one for mixing the colors together.

On the other hand, the palette feels really light almost cheap, doesn't feel like $35 palette to me. Another strange thing that I wasn't a fan was how reflective this palette is not the best for taking blog photos of but that's just my opinion. The stickers obviously helped but let's just say I had to use lots of different angles to get all these photos. When mixing the shades it can get messy so make sure to wipe the spatula in between each use to avoid the colors from mixing into each other. Since this palette is so shiny this means you can also get fingerprints all over the outside of the palette!

This is a mini pamphlet that comes with the palette. It shows you some of the possible color combinations you can create. Sorry, I couldn't share swatches of the colors but my swatches never turn out that great anyways. Just google if you curious what the shades look like.
