Hiding Behind Makeup - My (Our) Journey to Freedom

"Makeup isn't wrong, but it starts to go wrong
when you associate your identity only with your outer shell."

I shared this last night on my social media, so I knew I needed to put it out here on my blog too.

It's short but sweet :) 

No makeup, no big deal.. right?
Wrong - it took me so long to get to this place.
Read my story :)

Update + My New Series!! (Try It Tuesday)

Hey musers,


I'm sorry it's been a while, I've been very busy with life, work and Youtube! I recently also hit my 100,000 subscribers mark on my channel, which I still can't believe (and I have a special video for it still on its way...). Anyway, thank you to every single one of you for your love and support over the years! From the bottom of my lil heart!


In case you haven't seen it, I finally put up a new vlog this morning! Come with us to a pretty Korean countryside wedding and meet some of our new friends in Seoul :)

Anyways! How have you guys been?

I recently started a new series called 'Try It Tuesday', where I try out and review one hot, trending or interesting beauty product each Tuesday on my main Youtube channel.

No longer 1 minute reviews.. but still in my mind it is! hehe
Concept remains: Informative but as quick and concise as possible.

Here's the introduction video about the series if you haven't seen it:

Or CLICK HERE to watch on Youtube

Basically every Monday, I will post two highly requested makeup items on my Twitter, Facebook and Instagram. Then you guys vote for which one of the two you'd like me to review. The most voted product wins. And I review it! Video goes up the next day. Simple as that <33

In the series, I also give the product a rating out of 5, and state whether I would buy it again or not. My opinions are completely mine, the videos are not sponsored or biased, and I even list some online places you can purchase the products in the information bar.

In a nutshell, I created this series to help each one of you to become better informed consumers and to assist you in making wiser decisions with where to spend your hard-earned money. I wanted to make something very interactive where it's something I know YOU GUYS wanted to hear about, or were genuinely curious to know more about. I also take every one of your opinions, suggestions and questions seriously and answer as many as I can.
