It’s April! I’m so excited for spring, even though it doesn’t feel like it at all. It snowed day. It’s not fun to wake up after a nice sunny weekend to see snow everywhere. The good news is that most of it is gone so we can go on and forget about the weather’s silly episode.
It was finals in March so I sort of snapped and stress-bought stuff. I ended up ordering a couple of lipsticks and a concealer from Sephora. Beauty Brands

I hope everyone had a great December and Happy New Year!
A friend of mine came in from Seattle to visit and we did the k-beauty tour of Manhattan and Queens. You better believe I bought some stuff. For me, I had some restraint.
