Sunscreen for Face


I love beach, sand, sea, ocean, blue sky, marshmallow cloud.
so, I always find any perfect time to visit them. love the sound of the wave,
love the sun, love my tanned skin, and how i love snorkeling watched those 
fish swim near corals. Perfect holiday! agree with me?

However, there's one thing that i concern while i'm sunbathing or swimming at the sea.
it's the after burn rash at my skin. well, I used sunblock at my body, 
but somehow i don't like the greasy feeling when i apply sunblock at my face. 

If you play a lot under the sun without using any sunscreen this is what you got

Etude : Sweet Recipe Chocolate Eyes Review


Back with review, sorry for MIA for a while :) 
another review from Etude House product, who doesn't like their product, overload cuteness :)
I love this product, now it's in my everyday makeup case. so easy to carry on,
since it's so light and comes with small size. 

this packaging not so sturdy, you can tear it off since it only made from paper.
no mirror or applicator attached. Let's check on the swatch shall we?

Korean Plastic Surgery : Shocking or Amusing?


Doing aesthetic plastic surgery it's a choice, not a sins.
A choice for those who think they were not pretty enough to fit in this world.
or didn't match with the beauty magazine & movie stars "beauty measurement".
Korea well known for their plastic surgery industries. Cheap, fast, safe.
No wonder, nowadays Korea rank #1 in the world for plastic surgery industry.

It's not that I want to mocked or laughed at them who are going under the knife,
I write this post, just want to share with you how I amazingly shocked with
the before after picture that i found from this website

I read somewhere long time ago, how this plastic surgery evolve in Korean,
it's not just affects the measure of beauty, but also becomes a trend
that accepted well with younger and elder generation.
It's been said, the prettier person,
will get better opportunity in love, jobs and career.

They going under the knife for bigger eyes, less wide nose, more streamlined.
Square or prominent jaws are made delicate, V-shaped, smaller. 
and sometimes, I felt that they almost looks the same when they are done
with plastic surgery procedure.

Curious how their before after photo?
