The Face of January (aka. January Makeup Favs)

The first month of 2016 has just flew by, I feel like I just got back from the holidays, and now Chinese New Year is approaching!

2015 Skincare Heroes

I’ve been taking a serious hibernation during the last month (and part of this month), the combination of holiday, business review & business planning and of course, my nature laziness, is dragging down my energy to write new posts.
