Every Girl Needs: The Boyfriend Coat & Some Sister Love

I’m crushing on the oversize look. Oversized clutch, sweaters and of course the coat. I love the fit of my yellow coat this winter and was on a hunt for something similar, but a more subdued colour. You may have seen it in my Naksan Park, South Korea post. So I did a little experiment for my day out with my sisters. Just before I left my house, I tried on my husband’s coat, rolled up the sleeves and added a clip on fur scarf I purchased from H&M last winter. Ana & I having way too much fun taking pictures 🙂 Later tonight #OnTheBlog: Every girl needs a boyfriend jacket and some sister love ❤ #lookbook #whatiwore #igaddict #igdaily #bcbg #persona #pandora #Burberry #happy #sisterlove #bestoftheday #Prada #hm #instamood #igers #wcw #instago #fashion #style #igfashion #ootd #loveit #instalove #webstagram #me A photo posted by Hum (@humjk) on…

Miracle10 – 10 Day Skin Challenge

Using a sunscreen every day and a well formulated AHA is great for a more healthier, even-toned complexion. What products do you use on a daily basis? Do any of your products contain AHA’s? A good AHA cream helps rid dead skin cells to bring a more radiant skin layer to surface. I tried Miracle10 for 10 days and here’s what happened… Just to catch you up to speed with my Miracle10 experience, read my previous post about the bloggers event I went too. I get really nervous about using new skincare or anything with AHA’s because of this one time I used glycolic acid around my eyes. A little too close to my eyes. Side note: don’t put anything with AHA’s or glycolic acid close to your tear ducts. Apply in the outer area with gentle tapping motions. I used the cleanser I, toner and serum. The cleanser I used every morning…

REVIEW: The Conrad Hotel – Tokyo

 stayed in a lot of hotels through my years of travelling and some hotels become your staple go-to’s, some you never want to go back and others you tip your hat too.  Food : Four restaurants, two lounges and room service. The choices are endless. Paying an extra amount to have breakfast included is a great idea. Plus, there are no breakfast places in Tokyo. Unless you’re looking for brunch, only on weekends or a sushi breakast. The locals say it’s because no one wakes up early enough for breakfast, so make sure you get a breakfast package at the hotel you stay at. We enjoyed breakfast in the executive lounge and the Cerise restaurant, where you have a wide variety of foods to choose from. American breakfast, japanese and even some mexican, which I had the pleasure of trying. Never would’ve thought I’d try a mexican breakfast in…

Goodbye November! Hello December!

November was amazing! What a month, full of adventure, meeting new people, travelling with my love, spending time with my besties and soaking in lots of information.  Have you ever wondered why you have more busier and productive months than others? It’s actually very simple. You invest your time to be at places where you’ll get opportunities or that may encourage you to find them = a busier month. It’s so easy to get stuck in a rut and find yourself going through your day, weeks, months and years in the same schedule, saying the same things. Things like, “I can’t wait to do this..” or “I’m going to build/make/start….” and then not do anything at all. Why do this to yourself? Essentially you’re holding yourself back. I’m sure you can think of a million and one reasons of why you are and how hard it is to start. Really,…
