My wedding is only 3 months away and I have been upping my beauty routine as much as possible. Plumping, hydrating, brightening – I’ve been slapping on the best on my face.

Best of all; OKOKO Cosmetiques is found in my hometown Vancouver, BC and people can experience it first hand at L’Atelier OKOKO in Gastown! [Read more…]

Happy Year of the Ox! Normally by Chinese New Year, I would’ve had new slippers, a haircut, and maybe some new clothes.

However, a little festive gift did end up in my mailbox – Estée Lauder Advanced Night Repair Synchronized Multi-Recovery Complex in Large-Size Red Bottle and the Lips in Bloom – Pure Color Envy Lipstick Collection. The red! The gold chrysanthemums!
