New In Beauty Bits

I picked up a few new beauty bits during my recent holiday in Bangkok, what a surprise, right? Even though I now own way more beauty products than I ever need for my entire life, testing out new ones still makes me uber excited and want to squeal, especially when some of them turn out to be as good as you expected, or even better! Erborian BB Cream I spotted this little guy in a last minute visit to the mothership, aka. Sephora. Every country’s…
