Asia Beauty Haul | Innisfree, Etude House, Heroine, Etc.

Hello Lovelies!

Although it has been a little bit since this was hauled but it’s still pretty new because I have JUST started using these products. So in a way.. it’s not THAT delayed. Yeah, now I’m just trying to make myself feel better. Lets just get into it.


From Korea, I got…

Etude House Lip Gel – Because I have super dry lips so anything that will “hydrate” it, I’m onboard.
Etude House Dear My Jelly Lips-Talk (JOR202) – This is one of those changing lip color and I’ve never tried one before so this will be a first!
Innisfree – Green Tea Seed serum – Feel like a very lightweight serum that is perfect for the hotter season.
Innisfree – Green Tea Mineral Mist – Just a refreshing facial mist. Nothing special



If you EVER buy ANYTHING from Korea, make sure you get SAMPLES!


And from Japan I got..
Heroine Make Mascara – I have seen this for so many years and now I will finally be trying it.
This is a Feet detox pad that you stick onto the bottom of you feet and the pad is suppose to turn black removing the bad toxins from your body. We shall see if this actually works or not.


Now… we can sit back and enjoy these yummy snacks.

Thank you guys so much for tuning in and i’ll see you next time!

Target | Sephora | CVS | Beauty Haul!

Hello Beauties!

It has been awhile since I went shopping for beauty products on items that I just want to try out. I have been limiting myself on shopping because I have so many products that I need to go through in my beauty collection already. But… there were some pretty good deals so I couldn’t resist!



WOW Butter Toffee Gluten Free Cookies – Probably the softest cookie you will ever have. It almost crumbles when you touch it. Although it is nice and soft but because of the Gluten free factor it tastes more on the cookie dough side than a baked cookie.

Yes To Grapefruit Facial Scrub – Needed a new facial scrub and sine I have NEVER tried anything from the Yes To line, I thought I’ll give it a go.

Aveeno Hydrate + Protect SPF30 – This is not new on this blog. I love it for the summer because its essentially a lotion with SPF that doesn’t stink!

Mossimo V-Neck Tee – My ABSOLUTE ALL TIME FAVE V-neck 😀 ❤ It!



Maybelline Pumped Up Colossal Volume Express Mascara – New to try!

Maybelline Age Rewind Dark Circle Eraser – My current under eye concealer is running low so I thought I’ll revert back to what has been tried and true.

Physicians Formula Youthful Wear Foundation – Saw a review on this and they said that its their ALL TIME fave foundation that is really underrated by the blogging community. If its a light weight foundation, I gotta try it!






Carlton & Sephora

I was not planning on repurchasing Moroccan Oil anytime soon because it is quite pricy. BUT since there was a giant sign in front of Carlton’s when I walked by that said 30% off ALL Moroccan Oil products, I caved. I caved hard. I left the store in less than 10 minute $60 less in my pocket.

To equal things out, I had my target set on this Too Face Better than Sex mascara and walked in and out of Sephora with just this. Proud? Yes. Since there was so much hype around this mascara in March I had to try it out for myself to see if it really is THAT good. I have used it once since and for my first impression I can see why so many people like it. For a first impression I do like the volume and length it gives me but unfortunately it does not hold my curls (damn asian lashes!).

Sorry that this post was delayed! I had a crazy crazy weekend to meet some deadlines and lets just say that I was operating in zombie mode.

Until Next Time,
❤ Jess



50 Shades of H&M Haul



Good Day Everyone!

I think I might need some color in my life.. what do you think? Subconsciously I automatically gravitate towards the white, black, and in between gray. The moment I stepped into the dressing room I noticed that these pieces are not the most vibrant colors but thats pretty much my closet. This was one of those casual shopping trips where you’re not really expecting to buy something but it just happens that everything in the store appeals to you.

I love basic casual wear because we get the most wear out of them AND its the most comfortable.

Striped Shirt – $17.95 Casual legging length shirt are the best!



Jersey Top – $14.95 The sheer panels on the arm are what drew me in. Its the little details that sucker me in.

White Long Shirt – $9.95 White shirts with a collar and pockets are the best to match anything and everything. I need one that is long enough for me to tuck without me worrying that its going to be slipping out throughout the day. I’m not sure if I will be keeping this because it fits a bit weird with the cutting of the shoulder and underarms.



Holy Chic – $9.95 I can lounge around with this at home or wear it as a casual sweater. If I want to look a  bit more put together then I can just layer a collared shirt underneath. All 3 options for only 10 bucks.

Since the title is 50 Shades can I just take a moment to talk about it just for the heck of it. I have not read the books but I do know what it’s about from word of mouth. I did end up watching it with some girlfriends because they wanted to and I have to say that it was a hilarious movie for the stiffness and awkward moments. I am not a fan of the Twilight movies so I have to say that this was even more stiff and awkward than Twilight (which I didn’t know was possible until now). For that, I recommend you to go watch it for you entertainment (:

Until Next Time,
❤ Jess

Whole Foods Hauling


Every time I venture into Whole Foods its like trying to scavenger for something thats not crazily priced. Im always on a look for healthier options when it comes to food. My recent trip to Whole Food only consist of a 3 purchases.


Almond Butter … This isn’t just the average almond butter you buy at the market. Its FRESH! Thats right, you grind it yourself. They have different nuts that you can grind into whatever butters you want. Peanut, almond chocolate, roasted peanuts, etc, Don’t remember exactly what they are, but its somewhere along the lines of those. Fresh Almond butter is not all oily like ones we buy at the store that require stirring. The oil settles on the top a little bit but nowhere compared to packaged ones. Its about 12.99/lb and for the amount I got, was about $8. You get as much or little as you like. This is my absolute FAVORITE. Not too creamy. Not too chunky. No added sugars, just grounded nuts.



Guayaki Yerba Mate enlighten mint … First that I’ve heard of this was actually through Amy Castle. So basically, this is a “energy drink” . Yerba Mate, which is what the plant is called. So what benefits does this plant have and how can it make this drink act as a natural energy drink? According to Wikipedia, benefits are … “antioxidants and nutritional benefits combine to help improve the immune system, detoxify the body, relieve allergies, reduce the risk of diabetes and hypoglycemia, burns more calories, acts as an appetite suppressant and weight loss tool, increases the supply of nutrients and oxygen to the heart, may reduce the risk of heart attacks and strokes, increases mental energy and focus, improves mood, and promotes a deeper sleep, however sleep may be affected in people who are sensitive to caffeine.” So theres a ton of benefits to the Yerba Mate plant. The enlighten mint flavor taste like a Moroccan mint tea and I quite enjoyed it. This definitely did not give me a crash after drinking it like a regular sugar filled energy drink would. Taste great, has less calories then regular drinks, and I thoroughly enjoyed it. There’s no unknown ingredients. Regular price is $1.99 but right not its 2/$3 at Sprouts the last time I was there. Definitely going to pick more up.


ImageAvocado Vinaigrette Dressing … Doesn’t this just sound ahmazing? Avocado dressing, I mean c’mon. I can’t be the only one that got suckered into getting this. Well guys. Please me smarter then me. This. Taste. HORRID. It has absolutely NO Avocado taste. Its too sour and just overall I did not like it at all. Lets just say, it was so bad that I threw my salad away. I couldn’t get myself to even eat two full bites. Granted, its quite low in calories/carbs/fat/etc compared to other dressings. With it being $5 a bottle. I wish I can return this or exchange it for something else.
