Anthony Bourdain Dead at 61

“It is with extraordinary sadness we can confirm the death of our friend and colleague, Anthony Bourdain,” CNN said in a statement Friday morning. “His love of great adventure, new friends, fine food and drink and the remarkable stories of the world made him a unique storyteller. His talents never ceased to amaze us and we will miss him very much. Our thoughts and prayers are with his daughter and family at this incredibly difficult time.”


It was later updated in the news that the cause of his death was apparent suicide. 😦

Looking back at how Tony started to get interested in food, here’s a video from Goalcast:

Review: Cloud9 Blanc de Whitening Cream

Hooray! I got this cutie from Althea Korea during their “Brightest Stars” Promotion. I got curious because this is one of Althea’s best sellers. In the product info, it was said that there’d been 10 billion bottles sold to date! Le Blanc de Whitening offers instant skin whitening effects that last up to 12 hours! Made with aloe, snow lotus, white ginseng, lily flower, houttuynia cordata, freesia, daisy and edelweiss extracts, this cream effectively reduces melanin in the skin, lightens dark UV spots, reduces redness, diminishes freckles and evens out skin tones with continuous use. This whitening cream also rejuvenates damaged, dull skin, keeping it looking healthy and supple all day.

The only thing I’m not a fan of is the part where I need to scoop the product out using a spatula. I prefer an easier way like a dispenser. There are times I tend to get too much product and I would just waste it. 🤦🏼‍♀️

So far, I’m loving the effect. It can be used as a cream before make up and it can also be used as overnight cream. It doesn’t feel sticky but it’s isn’t really that lightweight either. I can compare this to Aqua Blossom. They both have instant whitening effect. (Click on the link to read about Aqua Blossom)

I like that I can apply the product on my skin without looking cakeyand it really stays long. I already have fair skin but I like the way this product can help even the tone. There are dark areas, those that are mostly exposed to the sun. We all do. 😊

I’d give this ⭐️⭐️ ⭐️⭐️/5

Review: Mise en Scène Perfect Serum (Rose Edition)

I’ve been looking for a serum that can tame my edgy hair. I don’t have much of baby hairs nowadays but it’s the ends that bother me when I check my hair in the mirror. It easily gets dry and dull even after I just had them trimmed.

So I came across this product from Althea Korea and I quickly made my order. It was really hassle-free not to mention all their products are legit plus shipping didn’t take long considering it’s international. I was so happy about their free shipping option (minimum of P999) and the best part is I was able to use my rewards points!

So back to this hair serum…

I love the scent (first impression)! Yeah, it’s rose but then this one just catches attention, it’s sweet and subtle but uniquely captivating. If it’s me, I’d love smelling my hair! 😂

The texture is really great. No sticky feeling, no residue will be left on your palm because it gets absorbed well by the hair. As advised by hair experts, the best time to apply a hair serum is when hair is damp. Not wet nor dry.

My usual edgy hair problem got eliminated by this serum. I carry it with me like how I got used with other serums but hey, I really didn’t need to reapply. After 8 hours, my hair was still in shape! 😊 No edginess, no dry ends.

I’d give this ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️/ 5

The Face Shop

I love Korean skincare not just because it’s very popular nowadays but because it suits my skin. They usually have those cute packaging and fragrant products!

Perfume Seed Rich Body Milk, nail polish, Miracle CC Intense Cover Cushion 🌸

I have always loved moisturizers but this particular body milk is my favorite so far!

I’ll post about it on my next blog.

Their nail polish isn’t bad at all! I like the quality and it’s not pricey compared to other brands.

Review about this CC cushion is on the previous post. 😊

Overall, I love this brand. I will repurchase and will find my next favorites soon! 🤗


Review: Laneige BB Cushion Whitening

Laneige is my favorite BB Cushion brand

I’ve been using Laneige for quite some time now but from timeto time, Iwouldcheckout other Korean brands, too!My usual Cushionis the Neutral Beige in 21. On my recent trip to Laneige, this sales person just pitched her way and convinced me to get the cool beige because she said it suits me better.

So Iwent back with this. As usual, it’sgot a refill. Well, it’skind of pricey so I’mglad they have refills.

Let’s compare the two.

Pardon the Neutral beige as it’sobviously older. It’sbeen taking rides in my purses with my pens and what not 😂My swatchesNEUTRAL BEIGE: It’s got some pinkish hue and shimmer. Great on yellow undertone. Moisturized and luminous effect.

COOL BEIGE: Seems to appear lightereven though it has the same number (21). It appearsto be drier but it has more coverage.My verdict: I prefer Neutral Beige. I don’tneed to cover blemishes and Itend to have dry skin. Neutral beige makes my skin looking healthy, not pale or too bright, most importantly, it’s moisturized. 😊I love on line shopping. I’d rather keep shopping from Althea Korea! They offer free shipping and COD for a minimum purchase.Click Here for discount and rebates! 😍Lastly, I’m giving Laneige CC Cushion 5 stars!⭐️ ⭐️ ⭐️ ⭐️⭐️
