Althea Korea Turns 1!

Yes, you read that right! Althea Korea is celebrating its first birthday today!

If you're not familiar with Althea, it's basically a K-beauty online store that ships internationally, directly from Korea! I have ordered through Althea several times already since they started shipping to the Philippines. It has become one of my fave online stores to shop at, especially now that I can't drop by malls as often as I did before (though I sure miss it!). Shipping's quite fast, too! And I find the shipping rate reasonable as well. Don't miss out and read more about Althea Korea in my post *here.* You're welcome!

To celebrate its first birthday, Althea has got a few promotions going on. Head on over to right now and shop away for a chance to win one of the bonggang prizes being given away!

Current Zen Zest Faves

Hey, hey, hey! Just dropping by for a quick post! I just want to share my current favorite scents with you guys. And they're from a brand whose name always triggers flashbacks (been using it since my college days! Aww). And also a brand that just turned 15 about a month ago - Zen Zest!

One of my all-time favorite scents is from Zen Zest. I first came across the brand (their EDTs, to be exact) when I was a junior in college, I think? That was like eight years ago! Zen Zest has been one of my go-to scent shops ever since.

Haul: A Very Pink One

Hey hey! Just a quick post for those who miss me. If there are still any, that is. Anyone????????? 

One of my few beauty-related purchases for the first quarter of this year was something that I had been wanting to get for foreveeerrr. Imagine my excitement when I saw that it was included in Beauty and Minerals's 2016 Summer Sale (which is still ongoing, by the way)! Shout out to Shiela Marie for letting me know about this sale. Hey, girl!

It's the Charm Pretty in Pink 14-Pc Vegan Makeup Brush Set that everyone was raving about when it first came out!
