Holiday Beauty Ornaments at Sephora

It seems that every year, the promotions for Christmas sales seem to be showing up earlier and earlier in the calendar year.

#ShareBeauty with Shiseido Canada

The first time I learned about this campaign was when I watched a series of Tonight Show Hashtag videos on Youtube. In between the videos, this video of #ShareBeauty played.

Seeing that these videos were of special events that happened in Quebec and Ontario, I secretly … Continue reading #ShareBeauty with Shiseido Canada

K-Beauty Pop-Up Shop at Nordstrom

On my way back home, before I start my commute from Downtown back to Burnaby by skytrain, I like to walk through Nordstrom to window shop. I like walking by the entrance by the Nordstom Ebar and Sugarfina to see the latest pop-up store. Seeing that the recent pop-up was KBeauty from February 10th to March 26th, I popped in to see if there was something I could … Continue reading K-Beauty Pop-Up Shop at Nordstrom
