Mr. Mustache

I initially wanted to write a review on a face product but unfortunately, my face is not in its best condition right now. Starting last Monday, I have been having allergy on my face which sometimes is so itchy. I am suspecting one product that I just tried recently, but let's see how it goes. I'm planning to go see alergist next month so that I can list out what I can and cannot eat or use. 

Today the weather is super nice, so I decided to wear a dress! I found this Mr. Mustache dress in my closet, I made this last year or so during my college year. Not the best outfit to celebrate spring, with the lack of springy color, but good enough to greet the nice weather. Never knew that turtle neck can be a good combination with a dress with collar. This was my first trial. How do you like it?

Life lesson! Right now I'm gonna be conservative while trying on new products. You too probably needs to be more careful! Do check reviews and see if there are chemical or extract that might cause you an allergy. It has been pain the but* to have my face really dry and skin now! And if you know you have problem, try to avoid using any product on your face for a while!

[DRAMA REVIEW] Let's Eat! 식샤를 합시다

I just finished the last episode of this light and cute drama, which has a unique story than others.



Summary of the drama
The drama is basically about a divorced woman, Lee Soo Kyung (Lee Soo Kyung) who really-really loves to eat. When she eats, she is so into her own world. The male lead is Goo Dae Young (Beast's Yoon Doo Joon), is a food blogger who knows a lot about the best places to eat food or the best food; he always describes food in such appreciative and enthusiastic way. So Soo Kyung, Dae Young, and Jin Hee (Yoon So Hee) are three neighbors living next to each other in an officetel. Soo Kyung does not go along with both of them initially, though because Jin Hee is so friendly and young, Soo Kyung feels like her sister and feels protective towards her making it easier for her to go along with Jin Hee. However, Soo Kyung feels rather suspicious towards Dae Young, because he looks like a suspect of the don't ask tragedy and he is an insurance salesman. Soo Kyung's story is made even more complicated because of his own boss, Attorney Kim (Shim Hyung Tak) harasses her because he initially tried to revenge on her because she rejected his love long time back and now he still likes her. Daily lives and episodes are always filled with the sexiness of their food and funny stories along their love lives.

Review
I really liked the drama in general, it is light, funny, and interesting at the same time. I really liked it because the story line is not bland or something that you could easily predict. It is not too dramatic like the family of the dude is rich, and the female lead is poor. This drama also does not fall to a point where two couple misunderstand each other that they need to break up and cry and cry and cry like other typical dramas. Most of the stories here are really meant to be funny and entertaining; also it is very realistic, some things that really happen in real life. The character development and stories are also interesting. The only drawback of this drama is the fact that the love line sort of fall too late on the timeline; Soo Kyung just fell in love with the guy like close to the end of the drama, so it left us with little love stories, a lot of romance stories at the end (still funny ones though). Also this drama only played once a week, so it was a pain in the but* to wait for one episode everyweek. But now since they are all out, you can watch them simultaneously, lucky you! Overall I will give this drama 4.8/5.0. It has been something that I would be waiting to watch every week besides My love from the star and Emergency Couple, now Cunning Single Woman. I would want to rewatch it again!


Prepare for some foodgasms:

Where to watch?
I have been watching this drama on Viki.com, since I am a premium member I do not have a problem with too much Ads. Subbing has been great, too!


Let me know what you think of the drama! I'd be glad to chat around with you !

Hair Chalking and Denims!

I hope you enjoyed my previous post/ review on Etude House Wonder Pore Freshner. I really did enjoy writing that review. The post below is actually from last Saturday, I just got to delay it because for the past couple of nights I have been doing something else... that might be more important than posting on my blog.

So, I have been youtubing some Korean fashion trends and all. The one that really struck me was the hair chalking trend. I'm sorry if you think this is so late; yea I know it has been up on the TV everywhere since last year, but you know it has just caught the mass now? Alright.

So, last Saturday I was having a real bad hair day. I showered, and my hair would never get dry even if I hairdried it. So, I gave up wavy-ing my hair, took a hair chalk out, chalk a little bit of my front side hair, and a little bit on the bottom, too. After that (even though my hand got dirty by then) I braid my hair and pin it!
Then of course, the best match for chalked hair is denim jacket! Grabbed my jacket to literally match the look. How are you liking it?

Based on my experience with hair chalk, these buddies do not last longer than 2-3 hours. You would need a hair spray or mist to retain the color longer. But I really did not have the urge to make it stay longer, so I just used hair chalk and nothing else.

So how are you liking my hair and outfit? Do let me know if you have other ideas! Will be glad to try it out :)

XOXO
