Spot Dessert Bar


Normally I don't really crave for dessert as much ever since I started exercising, but sometimes a good dessert hits the right spot makes my day brighter.  I recently got the opportunity to check out this dessert joint located at St. Mark area in New York City.  There are many times I always passed by but never had a chance to try this place and so I took my opportunity to try this place out. I ordered their dessert tapas and the dessert tapas that I ordered are:  Golden Toast - honey buttered toast, condensed milk,  Chocolate Green Tea Lava Cake - warm soft dark chocolate cake, green tea ganache, green tea ice cream, walnut soil and lastly The Harvest - layers of berries, soft cheesecake, meringue kisses served with raspberry sorbet and black rose milk tea. The desserts that I ordered were very refreshing and it was interesting how each of the desserts complimented each other.  The desserts I like the most were Golden Toast and the Chocolate Green Tea Lava Cake, because the two dessert dishes weren't overpowering sweet.  The Harvest was very interesting because it came in a garden pot, however it's very sweet and with layers of berries and soft cheesecake with meringue kisses really adds in the extra punch of being overly sweet. I personally think it was a nice experience and definitely would like to go back there again to try some of their other desserts that I haven't got to.

Studio Gear Revitalizing Day Serum and the Dual Identity Mineral Powder Review


How's everyone summer going so far?  Today I will be reviewing the Studio Gear Revitalizing Day Serum and the Dual Identity Mineral Powder.  This is my first time trying this, personally I'm not a powder person because I have dry skin.  Using powder would make my face looks even cakier and drier. However this mineral powder can apply in 4 ways and so I put it to the test.

I applied the day serum on my face to help moisturize my face.  Then I applied it wet and here's my before and after look.  This mineral powder helped me covered my dark circles and some of my dark spots.  This mineral powder also gave me a smooth matte finish, which I really like.  My uneven skin tone has even out pretty well using this powder.

FARMACY HONEY POTION Review


In this post I will be reviewing the FARMACY Honey Potion, a renewing antioxidant hydration mask with Echinacea greenenvy honey that activates by Cichoric acid.  This is my first time trying this brand and I'm extremely excited. This is a warming mask that nourish and revitalized your skin for a glowing and smooth complexion. This honey potion mask is moisturizing with combination of honey that enhances skin renewal for a younger appearance.  I really enjoy using this mask, it makes my skin more moisturize and also has minimize my pores after a few usage. The mask has a smooth consistency that glides on smoothly when applying it on.  After a few minutes the mask will start to warm up that has this soothing sensation. 

This honey mask is natural:
  • Naturally Derived Ingredients

The packaging is packed in a pretty glass honeycomb jar that comes with a metal spatula.  What's really unique about this packaging is that the top lid is a magnetic where you can just slap the spatula right on top of the lid after using this mask.
