singles magazine celebrating 7th anniversary

Singles magazine is one of the Korean magazine that I monthly grab for
focuses on fashion, beauty, love, lifestyle
it celebrates now 7th anniversary!

to celebrate the date and also to help out those people in needs
it held a charity event during August 23rd to 28th

all profits from this event will go to help out
Vietnamese kids in rural areas
the amazing thing about the event was that
many brands donated the products to be sold in 50% reduced price
(and they are new and available in almost every sizes for men & women!)
so mostly the prices ranged from

I couldn't take the picture of the shoes then because there were quite a few people
trying on shoes and asking for the sizes and stuffs
was quite crowded in the shoes display room
so I'll describe in words
they had long boots from bearpaw (which I so wanted to get of course!),
many sneakers and slip-ons from Polo Ralph Lauren, Guess,
Levi's and etc.
they had all kinds of casual shoes for daily walks

this event was held in a gallery in Seoul (capital of S. Korea)
and now it's coming down on the 5th in Busan
(city where my family lives with along the beaches)
I can't wait to visit this exhibition in Busan again!
then I'll show you more photos of the close-up shoes if possible

the exhibition takes you to the photos of male celebrities'
poses without shoes on

slideshow-video room

I can feel the message to show to young kids and for all people
"to stay true within yourself
and follow big passion of your life just like they did to achieve their dreams"

ticket was free to be downloaded at their official web

originally went because I was one of those who got
the barefoot exhibition photobook

this is the photobook I received
had all 50 celebrities' photos

dress F21
shoes ZARA
sunglasses BULGARI

I'm always grabbing for sweets these days
and blueberry macarons are perfect options w/o failure

also love honey bread w/ cinnamon on whipped cream
I got watermelon blend to try
(special summer drinks from Caffe Bene)
tasted really sweet
now I should stop with this sugary cravings and grab some Americano's now

Urban Space bloggers meet-up

daily morning looks like this
cup of Starbucks brewed in LeCreuset
while checking up on emails to start up new day/week fresh & fully woken up

new nails done with CND products

final look
just painted french and had put rhinestones on the line areas
so to not show my messy painting skill +
dotted with cotton swab to look like as if it's a flower painting

last week was pretty busy with bloggers' meet up @Urban_Space
& other duties
Urban Space hosted a brunch at Mui Mui
where it is a restaurant on the first floor and second floor is
outdoor garden for some beer/night dish

after that we grabbed Coffee Bean's
(I got ultimate vanilla ice blend)
and went to Urban Space for the evo presentation

salad w/ salmon

I ordered tortilla brunch ($15)

you'll be familiar with evo
if you saw this post before

evo represents
truth + beauty + justice

it doesn't exaggerate but wants to show the truth
the products that REALLY works
the brand says that your hair is like your lover
it constantly needs your love and care 24/7
and it is also eco-friendly brand just like all other brands Urban Space had brought in

we have received:
(it is a light-weighted hair lotion that makes your styling last for a pretty long time
works for all hair types but I recommend it to those who have
weak hairs from constant hair dyes and blow-dry like I am

hold factor is 3/5
shine factor 3/5)
how to use: apply in wet hair from middle to where it ends
(works for all hair types, easy to use hair wax in matte
hold factor is about 2/5 and shine factor is 1/5)
how to use: rub about a nail size of its amount to apply to your hair
for casual styling like its name represents.

received other samples to try such as the shampoos and conditioners too

also received three balms from BIMATCAY
red- miracle balm (use it at irritated skin such as when you get mosquito bites
and or when you have cold, or have sore bruised arms and you need a great massage)

blue- skin balm (moisturizer & great for sunburnt skin as a soothing balm. I used it at night before sleep just like sleeping masque
and it wasn't sticky in the morning but left me with glowing skin)

green- hand balm -my mom had put it in her purse already! ;)

pink- lip balm I definitely want to purchase it next time
looking at the other three balms I know for sure that I can trust this brand!

take a look at what I wore
dress H&M
sunglasses BVLGARI

& photos I took with my favorite Korean bloggers
we are all Urban Space supporters
or how we like to get called "Urban Girls" :)

I really love natural shots like this one

this photo is taken with Tara Taehee Kim's phone
(she is the online marketing representer of Urban Space & Hankook Cosmetics Co.)

thank you Urban Space!

mini-vacation over the weekend & new feature in Ceci Korea :)

does this photo look familiar?
yes it was seen in this outfit post here

better resolution photo will be updated shortly (or in feature column on the right)
but as of right now
take a look at my quick scan took with my galaxy s phone
of my new feature in Ceci magazine in Korea
(check out twitter @cecikorea for more daily readings)

i took this photo @BEXCO

basically they asked for biker's must have beauty item
and I recommended other items too
but due to the editing process I guess they picked one of my favorites of
benefit's porefessional

it's great for oily skin
I apply it under, over or without makeup on
because I get oily T zones during the afternoon at around 3-4 PM

I'm going on a mini-vacation with my family to Hilton resorts at Namhae
(click here to see how it looks like)
It's a golf & spa resorts

can't wait to take tons of photos of the view and my delayed outfit posts ;)
until then happy weekend to everyone
and I'll be able to update my twitter and comments since I have my phone with me
so keep on showing your love/supports thanks!

On my radar: 2ndskin, the jojoba company serums, + new giveaway

these two serums I am absolutely in love with :)
remember this review post of the jojoba company's oil and day/night creams?
now I am more addicted to these natural beauties
as I am amazed by the lightweight serums

they are:
jojoba absolute serum & antioxidant serum
(that urban space pouch is so useful for vacations
two pockets are detachable
and I can put in all my brushes, travel size kits,
and other necessary items all in one placement)

(thank you @Urban_Space)

photos credit to: the jojoba company
(30mL for Korea 98,000 won)

(30mL for 88,000 won)
I put a link on both serums so check it out to see how much it is in your country

the package looks the same
easy to grab in glass
the difference is with the liquid
the above absolute serum is clearer while antioxidant is milkier
in appearance

Jojoba Absolute Serum works best for you
if you want to use anti-ageing product
this is a firming serum (plump and lifting effect) to prevent face shape's ruin
from extravagant diets and as a natural ageing process
& also the wrinkles reducer I believe

you can use small amount of pump

Antioxidant Serum is perfect for all normal and oily skin tones
I am under the oily category by the way
this is for hydrating purpose best works for those days
when the moisture gotten away from sun exposure & outdoor activities
this is a product of very soothing one
(for dry skin I recommend you using this serum + the overnight renewal cream
at night: this night cream is extra extra moisturizing and rich in cream)

as you may already know
the jojoba company is free from all the bad chemicals you might be aware of
feel natural, breezy, soothing effect by using the jojoba company's products!

dress H&M
leggings 2NDSKIN
sunglasses BVLGARI
ring ALAND


do you love my cut-out leggings?
they are from 2ndskin
it's a Korean brand with an American twist/style

or simply think of it as Korean version of American Apparel ;)

I purchased my leggings about two years ago from ALAND
(or maybe 1 and a half can't remember exactly when)
but I wore it new today

it's quite sad that you realize you bought so much trendy items
but happened to find them under other dresses and jeans
(stuck in there somehow for some reason...)
and feels like you've just won a treasure hunt?
that felt like it today

more of my favorite finds at 2ndskin store

love the zipper back for slimmer look
15,900 Korean won (or think of it as $15.90)

I love the apple green!
$13.90 each



I want just about every basic long skirts and leggings
that way I can make just about hundred different looks worn with
other tops, accessories and shoes for changes :)

images credit to and shop available at

now let's welcome the new giveaway :)

do you want to look chic even when you workout/exercise?
do you worry about bra exposure when you wear loose tanks
and low neck dresses?
