New Year New Brand: Beauty Counter

Being introduced to new brands is probably one of my favorite part of blogging! I feel like I've tested so many products but there are still so many brands out in the market to discover!You never know when you might find a new must have brand. Some amazing brands I tested out for the first time last year include Pixi, Laneige, Givenchy, Kiehls, and IT Cosmetics.

I'm kicking off 2018 with a New Year New Brand series and first up is Beauty Counter! The brand has been around for a while and their mission is to put safer products into the hands of everyone. Although I'm not super particular about the ingredients in the products I use, I definitely still do worry about the long term effect of chemicals in skincare and cosmetics. Unfortunately for many of us that are not in the scientific field, we might not know what those hard to prounouce ingredients really can do.

Givenchy Lunar New Year Collection

Welcome to my first beauty post of 2018! I always find it a difficult transition from December to January. In December, there were so many gift sets, new releases and everyone is in a spending mood that it was easy to have tons to write about. I always find it a bit hard to get back started in January especially since I try to think of what new series to write about for the year! For today, I have a very exciting collection to share from Givenchy to celebrate Lunar New Year!

Westin Sydney Hotel Review

An area of travel blogging I really wanted to get into is hotel reviews! Since my blog is always about reviews of makeup and skincare, I thought it would be really fitting to continue giving my opinion about "products" but this time about hotels. I haven't done it too much in recent years as I've mostly stayed at AirBnBs when I travel. But this time in Sydney, we stayed at the Westin and I want to tell you all about it!

I did a lot of research by cross referencing Trip Advisor with Wiki Travel and Destination NSW for attractions. Then I used Zomato to research food (as recommend by local Australians). This list will be a blend of must sees and hidden gems but hopefully gives you tips to fully explore Sydney! There will be a combination of attractions, food, and of course places to take cute photos!
