Hello there my lovelies and happy cheerful Monday to you! The title kind of gives away what this post is going to be about – I will tell you what I have been up to these days and how I got a ‘dose of pretty’ in my life…. so let’s begin.
I don’t know about you guys, but my October has been a little … well actually a lot hectic. I guess it might be somehow related to the seasonal change … going from relaxing everyday summer mood into time-to-get-to-work autumn spirit. But nothing bad here and actually some exciting things have been happening and that’s what has been keeping me away from posting as often as I would have wanted. Obviously, my regular blogging schedule to post every Tuesday and Friday has gone out of the window and now it’s more like whenever I get a few quite minutes I shoot some pictures and write a quick blog post kind of thing. But not to worry – it’s all good because starting with this post I promised myself to dedicate more time to my blog and hence post more often, especially since I have something real great to share with you.
So while I was being quiet on my blog – in my life I have been a busy bee and all the buzzing got me into a super fun collaboration. I can’t wait to share it with you, so make sure to stay tuned and finish reading this post for some exciting news.
If you have been following my blog for a while you already know a little bit about me. I don’t really have any major issues with my skin, it’s mostly normal type with an oily T-zone and hence some pores. Also probably, like most of you my lovely readers, pretty much all of my life I have been exposed to and thus I mainly used Western brands for my skincare… but as you can imagine at some point it gets a little boring and we start looking for something new and fun and it’s a bonus if it turns out to be more effective too. This is exactly how I got here…
You may have seen in my previous posts I am kind of a fan of sheet masks. I have been using them for a while now and I have been loving the experience. If you are familiar with sheet masks you know that most of them are made by South Korea brands. In fact Korean beauty is booming right now and all for a good reason… it’s super fun to use, it has the cutest packaging and due to its innovative methods and out-of-the-box ingredients it’s been also proven to be quiet effective.
So as I started researching and getting more and more into K-beauty I came across a website called www.iamsopretty.com. They bring the best of tested Korean skincare products to Europe and are based in Cyprus… as luck would have it, it’s where I live too So instead of going out there, trotting the web looking for the best Korean skincare online shop I got to meet 2 young lovely women behind IamSoPretty. After lot of K-beauty talk and a few glasses of wine we knew it was a match made in heaven.
Not too waste any time I quickly purchased a few products that my personal K-beauty experts recommended (yes how lucky am I ) and after testing them for some time now I have to say I’ve been pretty impressed… Soooo to keep you guys in the loop, as I embark on my K-beauty journey, I have decided to launch a series of blog posts about Asian Skincare. Make sure to come back in a couple of days to read all about the oh-so-popular multi-step Korean Skincare Routine. I will then continue this series of posts by sharing my personal experience using some of my favourite Asian skincare products. Last but not least, IamSoPretty and I have got a lot of lovely surprises for you, so stay tuned and definitely come back for more….
But before I say goodbye, I wanted to ask if any of you, my lovelies, have tried Korean Skincare before. If yes, please share your experience with me! I would love to hear your thoughts.
Thank you for reading and hope to see you back here soon!
