AUTUMN NUDES


I am wearing a Zara top, Uniqlo pants, and Celine bag

I thrive in the fall because it's my favorite season for fashion. I don't have to worry about being too hot or sweating the moment I walk out, or that I'll be too cold and need to put on way more layers than I'd like. Don't get me wrong though, I love layering. Plus I love the nude color palette during this time. It matches perfectly with the color change of the leaves.

There are some things I want to buy for the upcoming F/W season. I've been eyeing some items on Zara for a while but have yet to make the plunge. Maybe I can do a blog post on some of my favorites? Lately I've been trying to shop smart because I don't want to buy anything that I don't gravitate towards immediately. I feel like if I see it and don't love it enough, it's not worth buying. There are so many items in my closet that I haven't worn very often so I'm trying to be more conscious of my shopping habits.

I'm also looking to sell some of my clothing on my Instagram since I want to do a closet cleanse. It's always the best to do a closet cleanse when the seasons change. I used to sell on Depop but I hate how the fees take out such a big chunk and there can be a few low ballers out there so I think I'll give Instagram selling a try. If you're interested in my items, make sure you follow me for updates! I'll most likely announce it on my Instastories. If you're curious, I'll be selling my IAMGIA coat, Doc Martens, and other goodies ;)

FEELIN' BLUE


Wearing a sweater from H&M, pants and bag from Bershka, boots from Forever21, and glasses from Firmoo

Goodbye summer and hello fall - finally! Well, kinda since New York has been extending the summer heat into the fall season these past few days. Any chance I was able to bring out my sweaters and knits, you bet I did. It has been a while since the little hair tuck in my comfy knits.

I've been wearing a lot more black lately so I thought of switching things up by going blue. I love this bright blue sweater that I got from H&M a year or two ago. The moment I saw it, I had to have it. It's loud without being overbearing which I love. Since I went for a solid top, a pair of plaid pants was the perfect bottom for the outfit.

Summer is coming to an end and I can't say that I'll miss it. The only thing I'll really miss are the longer days where the sun doesn't set until 8-9PM but I'm ready to layer and wear my favorite jackets. 

Since summer isn't officially over yet, I wanted to wear more summery colors since I've been gravitating towards a lot of black lately cause mood. Frilly tops like this one from Zaful is so cute for spring and summer. Also can't forget a good pair of high waisted denim to complete the look. 

This year has gone by in such a flash. There's still a few more months left but I'm hoping for bigger and better things to come.

IT'S BLAZER WEATHER


This week is said to be filled with rain but I'm glad I was able to spend my weekend in blazer weather. Over the weekend, we visited Coney Island to check out the boardwalk and also bought a new set of badminton gear so we can start playing. I've always enjoyed badminton and started getting motivated to play after watching a new badminton anime that recently came out haha. It's called 'Hanebado' for those who are interested.

FARMACY BEAUTY REVIEW


Above: the Farmacy moisturizer


From top left: Farmacy honey drop moisturizer, honey potion mask, clean bee cleanser, green screen sunscreen, and bright on vitamin c mask

Have you heard of Farmacy before? They've been popping up more on social media now which made me wonder if their stuff is any good. Luckily, I was able to try a few of their products since they were so generous to send me a few. One thing I really love about them is their whole mantra about being natural and how transparent they are about their ingredients. 

It's been a few months since I've been using these products so I thought it's finally time to give you guys my honest review about their stuff!

Honey Drop Moisturizer
This is one of my favorite moisturizers. I love the texture of it since it doesn't feel like heavy, oily cream. This moisturizer actually has a more watery texture to it which feels really nice against the skin after I do my entire skincare routine. It's also very light on the skin so if you're looking for something that's more light for the summer, this would be a good choice. What I love even more about this product is their packaging. It comes with a little silver spatula that's magnetic to the lid so you don't have to worry about losing it. 

Honey Potion Mask
I will have to say this is my least favorite product. When I first used it, I was so confused because when you're scooping the product onto your hands, it has a thick gel-like consistency. When you rub it against your skin, it feels hot to the touch but applies like a regular mask soon after. It was definitely interesting since I haven't had a mask do that before but it definitely caught me off guard. I don't gravitate towards this mask as I much prefer the Vitamin C mask instead.

Clean Bee Cleanser
I really enjoyed this because it made me feel like I was washing all the dirt on my face away. I'd feel so refreshed and it made my skin very smooth. It did leave my skin feeling more on the dry side so I wouldn't recommend this to people with dry skin unless you're like me and like that feeling. I didn't like the scent at first but it grew on me. I'd say the scent is similar to a field of flowers; baby's breath to be specific.

Green Screen Sunscreen
I love this!!!!! This is probably my favorite product out of all of them. I have been looking for a sunscreen so it was perfect when they sent this for me to try. There's no strong scent to it and doesn't leave a white cast. It also doesn't leave the face feeling oily which I hate with some sunscreen products. The only thing I would change about this product is the SPF. If it was SPF 50 - perfect.

Bright On Vitamin C Mask
Oh my goodness, this smells amazing. It smells like lavender and I could leave this mask on my face forever. The scent really hooked me in on this one and I love anything vitamin C since it's really good for your skin. The product comes out purple but ends up being more white when applied on the face. This mask leaves me feeling refreshed, smooth, and clean. Just what I want a mask for. 

I'm really happy to have come across Farmacy products because I genuinely enjoy them. They're a part of my skincare routine now and I want to try more of their products! I'm specifically looking at their makeup remover since I've been wanting to try the Korean versions. 

Let me know if you end up trying any of these as well. I would love to hear how they work for you.
