One of my New Year goals is to start off with a fresh and clean face.  I'm trying to stick to my regimen to have a healthier skin.  I want to have a nice and healthy glow, so I don't have to rely on putting on too many makeup products this year.  I'm so glad that I have an opportunity to try out this product line called Derma-E Charcoal Mask and Detox Scrub.  I will be reviewing these two products and to let you know what my insights on these products were. 

Derma-E Charcoal Mask
When I first tried the Charcoal Mask, it has help tighten and hydrates my face.  I also like that it's a dual action and a deep detox mask that purges pores of toxins.  After finishing washing this Charcoal Mask off my face feel very refreshed and my face felt cleaner and smoother.  This mask gave me a lovely radiance and a healthier appearance.  Overall this is a great products to use when you are under the harsh winter weather, great and helped rejuvenate my dry skin.  

Derma-E Detox Scrub
This scrub has helped and protect my skin from everyday toxins. This Dextox Scrub is a gentle exfoliate that lifts away pollutants. This scrub is not too harsh on my skin that contains Apricot Seed powder to remove micropollutants.  This scrub also have given me a softer and smoother appearance after using this.  Very good scrub that helps protecting my skin from toxins and this scrub is very mild on your face. 

Ethical Beauty
I like that they believe in Ethical Beauty, which means they are committed to my health, well-being and that they believe in natural environment. This brand makes their products eco-ethical skin care.  This product is cruelty-free, GMO-free, Gluten-free, soy-free, Recyclable and Wild Energy (Certificates). 

I hope you get an opportunity to try their product line.  More information can be found on their website: DERMA-E

Currently: Back to Gym

It's great to finally be back to the gym since I'm so cooped up at home. This year I want to make my ultimate 2017 goal to aim for a half marathon this year.  I'm kind of scared, but apart of me, I want to take that challenge. I'm going to commit into to training and hopefully, I can manage on doing a half marathon when the time comes.  Even just 30 mins away exercising is therapeutic from taking care of my daughter.  I can't wait that this winter will be over soon so I can run outdoor as well. Surely, I will take it easy and not over do it.

In the past I posted My Race/Jogging Tips, I hope to apply those tips again when I'm racing.  It's been a long while since I participated in a race.  Sometimes I don't rely on my time sufficient as long I'm capable of finishing it my race.  This time when training I want to try to make my time more sufficient...

Shaking Crab

While my husband was away, I got the opportunity to hang out with my girlfriends with some good old seafood.  Those who knows me knows that I love seafood a lot.  I can have it anytime and that it has to be authentic. I got the opportunity to try this new place called Shaking Crab,  recommended by my friend to try this place. Over the weekend we made our journey to Flushing, Queens on a blizzard day.  Overall the food was pretty good, but their sauces were a bit overpowering by the spices. Their sauces are consist of House Cajun, Rich and Tangy and Sweet Chilli Miso. We ordered Sweet Chilli Miso crab and House Cajun half-pound of mixed shrimps and clams. Each bite of sauce got very intense for me, I thought I could tolerate the spiciness. We also ordered a small basket of oysters and a dish of their garlic noodles.  All of the food styles were unique that packed with a lot of intense flavors. I have to emphasize my favorite was their fried oysters and garlic noodles. The fried oyster was really good, the oysters were meaty that has a good size bite. I wished I could've ordered another basket of the oysters. I'm not sure how their typical ambience is because we went on a snowy day.  When I got there, it was quiet and there was no wait time. I got served immediately and the staff members there are very friendly and helpful. I highly recommend that you should try this place if you make your way to Flushing, Queens.

My Business Cards

I can't express how ecstatic I was when Juke Box Print was offering free business cards on their Instagram.  I then took the opportunity to design my business card and since I'm a graphic designer I should utilize my skills.  Took me some attempts in designing my business card but here is the final outcome and I'm certainly happy with it.  I decided to create a business card just in case if there's any feature beauty or any events my husband invites me to and it certainly would be better to be professional on it.  Secondly, it would be a great way to expose my site more in the long run.  I hope I will have more time to manage my site and share with you all with more reviews.  Thank you Juke Box Print for providing free business cards.

RiRe Eyeshdow Pigment Review

I hope everyone had a great New Year and that you can look forward to a fresh start of the year. In this post, I will be reviewing this brand called RiRe Pigment Eyeshadows.  I never heard of this company but 08 Liter and RiRe provided me these pigment shades for me to try this out and to share my thoughts to my readers.   I really want to expand my makeup horizon by trying more Korean brands.  I never really got the opportunity to look around and plus with my limited makeup shopping today, I just never got the chance to.  Hopefully this year I will start picking up and trying more different beauty products.

The pigments that I got to try are: 
  1. Snow White - Shimmering color caused instinct to protect with transparent white pearl
  2. Gold Clutch - Make deeper richer eyes with gold brown color and glitter pearl
  3. Peach Peach - Peach color making pure and girlish look 
  4. A Pink - Recommend for daily make-up with delicate pearl
  5. Club Burgundy - Make attractive eyes with sexy burgundy color and glamorous pearl 
RiRe Pigment is a loose glitter that can be used alone or on top of eye shadow, face, hair or body. RiRe Pigment comes in 5 beautiful colors:  Snow White  • A PInk •  Peach Peach • Gold Clutch • Club Burgundy

I really like that these shade are earthy and natural, where I can mix around with it.  It's really sparkly and shimmery when you are layering different shades.  It provides a natural look, which isn't overpowering.  I hope you'll get an opportunity to try these wonderful and beautiful RiRe Pigment Shadow as well.
