Despite everyone saying it’s fall, Summer is still very much alive where I live. If it were up to me, I would just live on the sand all year round. I think Lola would agree with me! Nothing makes us happier. I typically don’t…

    Charmaine Ng | Architecture & Lifestyle Blog - It’s forever summer where I live, too. The weather doesn’t actually get cold until December here in Hong Kong – and even then, our winters hardly go below 10ºC!

    Julie - I’ve been obsessed with the Peter Thomas Roth 24K gold eyepatches. They are so good! That and the BITE agave lip masks are my go-to treatments.ReplyCancel

    Sharon - I haven’t tried any of these masks and I really want to. I love masks, I like how they make me feel like I’m having an at home spa treatment. I use a Mario Badescu’s drying lotion, I love their products but this drying lotion is seriously one of their bests and the only product I’ve ever used that kills my blemishes. I’m off to shop and read the reviews on some of the serums and masks you listed here, thanks for sharing.

      eat.sleep.wear. - I totally agree. Anything to recreate the spa at home is ok with me. So glad to spark some mask interest for you 😉 Happy Shopping. xoReplyCancel
