• Despite that head-scratcher of an ending, I absolutely fell for this. The story was very relatable. I think that’s the beauty of Makoto Shinkai’s work – His stories were always something people could relate to. It may not be because they happened to experience the same thing as our characters do, but because of how these characters react to the situations that were placed in front of them.

BULLET REVIEW: Hayejin Cuddle of Flowers Pink Moisturizing Sheet Mask

I just love using sheet masks. I would sometimes hoard them, use them when my skin needs to be extra gorgeous on certain days, or whenever I just want my skin to be pampered.

Q&A REVIEW: Vice Cosmetics Phenomenal Velvet Lip Kit


Yes. I have another lip product review. I’m sorry. Haha. No scratch that, I am not sorry because I love lip products a lot so I might be posting more pretty soon.
