Discover beauty through professional reviews
I'm a single mom who lives just north of the Golden Gate Bridge with my beautiful son. My passion is art and I hold an MFA in graphic design as well as MLIS with an emphasis on information systems. I'm an artist, designer and librarian. The job I was most passionate about was owning, along with two other women, a clothing company where I was the primary designer. I'm a risk taker with an independent spirit. I love people and am very loyal but have no room for liars and hypocrites. My sense of humor is dry, silly and I love the absurd. I'm a study in contrasts: silly/serious, quiet/out going, pop culture/tradition, private/open... Lastly, I'm obsessed with all things skin and when I discovered k-beauty I had the 'eureka!' moment. Right now I'm all about hanbang. And who are you? ?
I haven’t been around for a while and have missed my favorite beauty site, and most importantly, the wonderful people I’ve met though it. I’ve almost felt guilty for not being around – I have a thing about loyalty @annapark – but think my excuse is pretty solid: I was diagnosed with Melanoma a couple of months ago. Yep, the sunscreen queen has Melanoma. Irony is alive and well. My first major surgery is in a week and a half. I felt compelled to mention it here because you all have been fun, warm, caring, funny… And I’m scared.
Hi Tapisphere! 🌹
Q. If you could choose only one product line to use, which would it be? Why?
My answer: Swanicoco. Because they have a large selection of products addressing a wide range of skin care concerns – including hair and body. They manage to satisfy my love for fermented ingredients and Hanbang AND my desire for products backed by results driven, scientifically sound research. I also feel that I’m getting more for the money, few of their products are much over $50,00. To seal the deal, they use quality, effective and skin-safe ingredients. I wish they made a night mask, though.
How about you?

And, finally… The samples included with numerous orders. Also, sorry for the poor quality of the pics. I took them in low light with flash, so they’re over saturated. And a very interested kitty kept trying to get on the displays 😁!!
Alright, here goes… The Postal Gods were good to me. I’ve finally taken pictures of what amounts to approximately my first six weeks on the site worth of orders. I decided not to try anything until I had received all my initial purchases. As I was displaying everything from picture taking, I had numerous thoughts: 1. I’m definitely a k-beautyaholic. 2. I could open a small, illegal k-beauty shop in my home. 3. Now I have Christmas and birthday gifts covered for my friends and family… for the next several years. 4. I’ve eaten my shoe budget for the foreseeable future. 5. I’m in heaven 😁. So here it is.
Please deliver my orders. I\’ve only misbehaved a little this year.
