It’s summer! I’m loving it. Usually I complain about the heat and grime but not this year. I’m really feeling it.

June was a great month. I started a class at Columbia. I’ve been taking myself to museums and galleries. It was Pride. Life has been rather stress-free and my skin is looking great. I can’t complain about anything.

Anti-Haul June 2017

A lot of people do “Anti-Hauls” on Youtube. If you aren’t familiar with these, these are videos where people talk about what they aren’t buying. With so many launches, I love the premise of this.

EauMG’s April & May 2017 Favorites

Guggenheim NYC

OK, so I’ve had to consolidate 2 months into one. This is mostly because of the stupid blog hacking that put me out of commission. And then it was finals/wrapping up of my first year of grad school. I’ve been busy.

Gosh, let me see if I remember what happened over these two months. I was busy with school and projects. I went to a lot of museums. I had a friend in from Seattle and we went to a k-pop (EXO) concert. I had a great… Continue reading | 15 Comments
