It Was When I Got Body-Shamed I Discovered I Am Body-Positive

Tuesday, January 31, 2017


This was originally supposed to be on Instagram. But I want to get a discussion going so I'm putting it here instead.

I recently got body-shamed by an acquaintance who was trying to sell me some "magic" underwear. I won't go into much detail about the product except that it worked in making me an inch smaller everywhere by tucking stuff away. What I want to focus on was the way she pitched the product.

2017 Goals

Sunday, January 01, 2017


Happy New Year, everybody!

I'm so glad 2017 is here. The second half of 2015 til the third quarter of 2016 was terrible for me. I want to just flush those months down the toilet. Hopefully, everything will be better in the coming months.

Instead of making resolutions, I'd rather have goals. I never stick to resolutions but goals are another thing. It may just be a matter of semantics but whatever works, right? I don't want to overwhelm myself either. So I'm sticking to simple goals that I know I can do and will have an impact.

Butterfly Pea Tea

Wednesday, November 30, 2016


One of the ladies I met through a soaper's group sold a few pots of Butterfly Pea plants last Summer.  I purchased two from her, out of curiosity. It was a buck each anyway. No flowers yet at that time and it took a few months before my first bloom (above) appeared. Isn't it gorgeous?

IOPE Enzyme Powder

Monday, November 28, 2016


IOPE is a high-end brand in Korea famous for their cushion foundation. Its the brand's best-seller. I haven't read about their skincare products but I was curious because it seemed good.

As I'm on a self-imposed beauty no-buy, I've been going through my stash of products a lot slower than I used to. Excited as I was 18 months ago to try out the IOPE products I purchased, I had to restrain myself. It's only recently that I was able to get the IOPE set out since I ran out of other products. The Enzyme Powder is the first one up for review.
