For the month of March I spent time in the north of Norway where spring never seems to come. I suffered some degrees of dehydration, but by increasing water intake, things have started to get better. There were 3 – 4 lazy days when I skipped wearing eye cream but I’ve been religiously applying my Pai rosehip oil. The combination of the products I used boosted my skin’s radiance a little bit.

Happy International Women’s Day! As women, there are lots of stuff to be taken care of and we can forget to take care of ourselves. I found that doing a pampering session on Sunday and Wednesday nights do help me to wind down and be ready for whatever the following day will bring. My favorite exfoliator of the year 2014 was from a Thai natural brand called Thann. Continue reading
