Love, Laugh & Dream Big with innisfree x Snoopy® this 2018: Full Collection Review

Remember those days when Snoopy used to be everyone’s favourite beagle? I still remember fondly that I used to collect those Snoopy figurines from MacDonald’s when I was a kid. It was back in 1999 if I recall correctly. After so many years, Snoopy is BACK! This time, in a beauty collection! innisfree teams up with Snoopy® to inspire the world to “love more, laugh a lot and dream big” this 2018.

How do you create your own sunshine? For me, I create my own sunshine and rainbows daily, in the form of my eye makeup! Eyeshadows are my LIFE and I can never live without colouring my eyelids.

Seoul searching in fabulous Seoul, South Korea: Beauty, Food & Fashion

Let it snow, let it snow, let it snow!~

I just came back from Seoul, Korea, recently and I’m still wishing I was back in the cold, with occasional snow while walking down the shopping streets of Garosu-gil, Hongdae and Myeongdong.

It’s 25 years into my life and it was my virgin visit to the popular travel destination, South Korea, to attend a K-Beauty conference – Made in Korea (MIK) 2017 – courtesy of MyFatPocket. It was my first time travelling with MFP’s Editor, Xinyi (@xinyicyndisoh) too. This short trip was a rather fruitful one as I got acquainted with many K-Beauty brands that are looking to expand to our tiny little red dot, ate many local dishes and bought even more makeup!
