Instagram Recap #2 —–> Life Update

Hello everyone! Sorry for my absence, but as you can see from my Insta-recap below, a lot has been going on in my life lately. Main events: graduating from my MBA (yay!), turning 25 (let’s not discuss this, lol), and then trying to take in as much of Taipei as I possibly can as well as trying to spend as much time with all my friends who have been like my family for the past two years and a half. Besides that, I’ve also been busy trying to get all my stuff together because… I’m moving to Shanghai!!!

I am very excited for this new adventure, and even though is a little scary, I know that the odds WILL be in my favor! haha (hunger games much?) So please don’t think I have forgotten my lovely blog, I will be blogging much more about my new city, and as soon as I get one, my new job! haha I will be continuing my summer outfit series, and I’ll try my best to not go away for so long again!

It’s sort of sad to say goodbye to Taiwan, the place I’ve called home for the past couple of years, but I am definitely excited to try some place new and I know I will conquer Shanghai! xx

Le Makeup: Benefit’s The POREfessional

Have you ever wished you could have a smooth, matte looking face? I know I have, especially since I’ve always had pore-related issues with my face. But that was before the POREfessional. I am absolutely in love with this product, and have already re-purchased it a couple of times. According to the description made by Benefit, this product is supposed to be a balm for minimizing “the appearance of pores & fine lines for smoother-than-smooth skin”. It can be used alone, under or over makeup as a primer or finishing touch.

I sometimes use it as a primer when going out at night, so that my makeup stays perfect after some dancing; but I love to use it the most during the hot summer days when you don’t really want to wear makeup (not even your BB cream). This is because this product has an incredibly lightweight feel to it and leaves your skin extra smooth (not only appearance wise but also on the touch). Another great thing about the POREfessional is that you don’t need much product, just a little bit for each of the main areas of your face and you’re set!

Benefit is one of my favorite makeup brands for many reasons, one of them is the amazing quality of the products, the delicious scents of the blushes (♥) and of course their gorgeous packaging. The one thing I don’t like about the brand is the pricing, because as you know, the economies of this blogger are not very exorbitant. But this is by far one of my favorite beauty products ever and it is definitely worth the price. I highly recommend it!

Hope you like! :) xx

Music Monday ♥

Happy Monday! :) Music Mondays are back with a new format! I felt like the YouTube videos were a little too overwhelming on the eyes, so I thought this widget would be an improvement.

The choices for this week are a kind of weird mixture, with some mellow tunes and some Aoki too, so there should be something for every taste. Also, some Spanish choices, that even if you don’t understand, I’m sure you can enjoy the nice melodies. These have all been on constant repeat for weeks now. 

Hope you like them! xx
