One thing I loved this box this that it got you all set for the summer with a weightless sunscreen with SPF 50+, a gorgeous ruana that triples as a scarf, sarong, and poncho, a glass water bottle to ensure you stay hydrated. You can also add some flare to the box with soothing eye concentrate, highlighter, massage oil, natural stone necklace, and even an art kit.

Eau Thermale Avene Ultra-Light Hydrating Sunscreen Lotion SPF 50+ (Retails $24): This sheer light sunscreen contains broad spectrum SPF 50+ UVA/UVB filters and is enriched with powerful antioxidant and soothing Avène Thermal Spring Water. I have to say, this sunscreen is quite light and hydrating. I one thing that I loved the most about this lotion is that it meets the TSA size standards.

Michael Stars Ruana (Retails $54): I love this scarf. You can as a scarf, sarong, or simply drape it like a shawl. I love the soft fabric. I wore all summer long so many different ways. I still wear it.

Little bkr – 500 mL (Retails $35): This gorgeous rosy glass water bottle comes in convenient 500 mL to carry to the gym. What better way to stay hydrated.

Little bkr Juice Beauty Smoothing Eye Concentrate (Retails $29): This concentrate contains certified organic grape and carrot juices blended with essential fatty acids and Vitamins B5, C and P to hydrate for healthy, beautiful eyes. It’s daily essential for all skin types. I have sensitive skin. It feels great on the skin. I haven’t been using this long. I love that it contains natural, organic ingredients. I can’t wait to see a difference.

Way of Will 03 Soothe and Cool Massage Oil (Retails $29.50): Had a rough day or workout? This massage oil infused with 100% natural essential oils. The oils improve the protective barrier function of the skin, increase hydration, elasticity, and suppleness, while cools affected areas post exercise. I found it quite soothing.

Cargo HD Picture Perfect Highlighter in Bronze (Retails $30): Its lightweight and velvety powder formula go on flawlessly yet remains invisible to the camera. I love that it silky smooth formula and how subtle yet buildable it is.

Kris Nations Mystic Bar Necklace in Moonstone (Retails $58): These stones are hand-cut by craftsmen in India and each one has an attribute that helps you live every day with positive intentions. It’s made with 18k gold overlay with moonstone which provides inner peace, strength, and growth.

Amy Tangerine “Ready, Set, Create!” Art Kit (Retails $22): The goal of this kit is to bring your inner artist. To be honest, this my least favorite. I used to paint with oil paints and this looks like kids stuff to me. I guess I will have to give it to my niece.

Hi there my lovelies! Hope you are doing well. Today, I want to talk about turning an ordinary base from meh to yeh. It does not cost you much.

I if you have ordinary vase you can really make with really interesting without spending much money. I had this white ordinary vase that I wanted to change into something exciting without spending much money. One way I did that did that is using temporary tattoos. I found this beautiful floral tattoo from Amazon. The tattoo only cost $6.99, but it took my ordinary white vase from meh to yeh.

You follow the instruction to apply the tattoo into the vase and when you want to change the tattoo to a different one just remove it with a nail polish remover. It is just simple.

Do you like this simple idea to glam up your ordinary vase? Please comment below. I would really love to hear your feedback.

Remembering the Victims of 9/11


911-475x331

Hi there my lovelies! Hope you are doing well. Today I will take a short moment to honor victims those lives on 9/11. I know that everyone like clearly remembers what they were doing when the nation changed forever. I was an incoming freshman in college was about to enter my Biology lab class when my mom called me and told me that a plane hit one of the twin towers. I thought she was joking and I hung up on her. I did not realize how true her words were until about later. I remember, while in the lab we heard what we thought was a loud bang was actually plane hitting the Pentagon.

COM 2015 ANNIVERSARY

My dear friends! Being just blocks from the White House, I will not forget the chaos and not being able to reach my family. I was living in my hometown in Washington DC. I could see the flames from the Pentagon from my apartment rooftop. I couldn’t sleep for months and had nightmares. It was few years before I got the courage to get on a plane, and I still cannot look at the sky watching a plane flying low. The world we know has really changed since 9/11.

I cannot imagine the lives of the families who lost their lives that horrific day. Let’s take a time to remember to victims, the heroes who died that day.

Do you remember what you were doing on this devastating day 16 years ago? Please comment and let us know. I would really love to hear your comment.

Loss of a Loved One

Hi there my loveliness! Hope you are doing well. I know I have away from blogging for the past two months. This is because I watched one of my close family members lose her battle with cancer. My family member got diagnosed with last stage lung cancer that has metastasized all over her brain. She passed away within five months living two young adult children. I did not even have a chance to say proper good bye.

My dear friends, I have lost 4 family members to this disease. This loss reassured me that life is way too short. Don’t hold grudge against anyone. Live for today. If want to do something don’t set it aside for tomorrow or later. When you are at home, hug your loved ones a little tighter. Let them know how much you love them. Most of all, take care of yourself, your health.

Thank you for continuing to support my me while my family and I was dealing with tragic lose to cancer. I love you all.

June 2017 Ipsy Glam Bag


ipsy.jpg

Hi there my lovelies! Hope you had a great weekend. Today I want to take the time and talk to you about the June.

Description: The June Glam Bag came in a fabric bag with a picture of a lip with red lipstick. Yes, you got it right, red lipstick. How chick is that! It’s a not-so-subtle reminder to *always* speak your mind! The bag is perfect for making a glam statement. Inside are five products: NYX Professional Makeup Whipped Lip & Cheek Soufflé, BioRepublic SkinCare Aloe Rescue Revitalizing Fiber Mask & Green Tea Detox Purifying Fiber Mask, the Balm Cosmetics INSTAIN Long-Wearing Staining Powder Blush in Pinstripe, Skone Cosmetics Insanely Intense Tattooed Waterproof Eyeliner, and Luna By Luna Cosmetics
Eyeshadow in Jace.

NYX Professional Makeup Whipped Lip & Cheek Soufflé ($6 value): It is very creamy and soft with a nice texture and beautiful color. However, it really does not last long. I will only give it a 3.5 to 4 stars at most.

BioRepublic SkinCare Aloe Rescue Revitalizing Fiber Mask & Green Tea Detox Purifying Fiber Mask ($9.98 value): The Green Tea mask is infused with a ton of revitalizing ingredients (like natural green tea extract and Vitamin E) that leave your skin looking and feeling SO fresh and SO clean. One the other hand, the Aloe mask is full of soothing aloe vera juice will immediately hydrate and calm down sun-stressed skin.

theBalm Cosmetics INSTAIN Long-Wearing Staining Powder Blush in Pinstripe ($21 value):  This talc-free, fade-resistant formula is perfect for hot days and even hotter nights. The shade is beautiful, and it stays very well. I’ve been given a lot of blushes and would definitely like to get more varied items.

Skone Cosmetics Insanely Intense Tattooed Waterproof Eyeliner ($20 value): A precise, felt tip makes creating cat eyes and graphic looks SUPER easy. I absolutely love the eyeliner with its precise tip and it lasts such a long time.

Luna By Luna Cosmetics Eyeshadow in Jace ($15 value): The site says it’s vegan and cruelty-free and only been tested on party animals. There is not much pigmentation even with eye primer. I am not a fan of this shadow at all.

Designing for the Future: Fashion and Beauty Trends We Need to Consider Now


Hi there my lovelies! Hope you are doing well. Lately, I cannot stop thinking about what step backward the US has taken by Trump pulling the country out of the Paris Climate Accord. Sadly this year the US has joined countries like Nicaragua and Syria as the only nations not to be proud of.

Though as a trained Epidemiologist all I could think of is what kind of message are we sending to the rest of the world? However, it was nice to see 175 US cities and 13 states vowed to continue their commitment to the Paris Accord. I think this is a good start but since our own leaders don’t our best interest in heart we all must work together. Businesses also showed their disagreement with the decision. However, more needs to be done.

Since I am a big fashion and beauty enthusiastic, I think that fashion design and beauty is another area where the future trend can tap into. The fashion industry is $1.2 trillion global industry. When we think of climate change we rarely think of how cotton production is responsible for 2.6% of global water use. It is the second most polluting industry in the world after oil. Additionally, dyeing, printing, and bleaching are one of the most energy and chemical intensive stages along the manufacturing line.

Similarly reducing your beauty footprint doesn’t simply mean stop buying new makeup products. You can take some simple steps and buy organic and green products to reduce your carbon footprint. We as consumer should start by

  • Turn off the tap running while brushing teeth, shaving, and washing face.
  • Reduce hot water use (25% of the energy the average family uses each year is for just heating water).
  • Try products that are vegan and not tested on animals.
  • Skip the daily shampoo
  • Look for Recyclable Packaging

However, some of these environmentally friendly designs are beyond affordable for many people. Designs by designers such as Kowtow offers organic fashion ranging from $89 to $349.  Amour Vert, on the other hand, creates clothes for a long life cycle since it will be able to withstand one hundred washes and still feels soft. As a result, we’ll buy less often and will be less likely to give it away or throw it away. Their prices range from upper $30s for their tees to $200s for their dressing and shoes. Most of all, for every tee you buy a tree will be planted in North America with their partner American Forest. We need more businesses who can bring eco-friendly sustainable fashion and beauty to mainstream market at reasonable price.

Global warming is not some hoax invented by the Chinese. It’s real. The climate change is real. Each of us need to play a role in reducing carbon emission. As the second most polluting industry, the future of fashion industry should include bringing eco-friendly sustainable fashion and beauty to mainstream market at reasonable price. We owe this to our future and future generation.

Where do you see the future trend of design based on the climate change? Please comment below. I would really love to hear your feedback.

April Ipsy Glam Bag


ipsy2

Hi there my lovelies! Hope you had a great Saturday. Today I want to talk to you about the April Ipsy Glam Bag. As you know, Ipsy is a monthly beauty and makeup subscription. Each month you will receive full size or deluxe size items and a cute makeup bag. I think it’s one of the best value beauty subscriptions and a great way to build out your makeup collection for just $10 a month.

EM Cosmetics Illustrative Eyeliner Brush Tip: The applicator was inspired by a calligraphy pen. It makes a perfect line and stays all day. I absolutely love this liner. It retails for $15.

Elizabeth Mott Show Me Your Glow Shimmer Shadow & Highlighter: I have a big fan of glow shimmers and highlighters, and what I like about this one is that it’s not dramatic. I love the subtle look I can create with this highlighter, but you can layer it to make it dramatic. Nonetheless, it does not last long.

OFRA Cosmetics Peach Blush: I love blushes, and I love how subtle the blush is. However, I did not like the packaging at all.

My dear readers! Though I really love Ipsy, overall, the April Ipsy Glam Bag a disappointment to me. However, I do have to admit that I really admire the creativity of the ticket stub makeup bag. I also liked the eyeliner and even the lip balm. The other products were little meh.
