Etude House is a Korean beauty store, its products ranges from cosmetics to beauty remedies, such as: BB cream, mascaras, fragrance, face masks.... the list is endless! It is the ultimate make-up beauty heaven. I highly highly recommend this store and if you have the opportunity to visit Asia and this store is available, then you must visit!

I went to Etude House in Hong Kong, the store is so beautiful and very attractive even from a distant. The only factor I dislike is the price; the price is doubled or tripled in Hong Kong. I have to visit Korea and stock up!

The first store I visited, overload with people. It was impossible to even look at a product.

Therefore, I visited another Etude House another day in the earlier hours of the day and may have bought a few items....

I bought: 
- AC Clinic Daily Acne Foam Cleanser 
- AC Clinic Daily Toner 
- Happy Teatime Green Tea Cleansing Tissue
- Facial Sheet Masks: 2x Red Ginseng, Pearl Extract and Promegranate
- Lash Perm Eye-Long Mascara 
- 3 Step Volumecara Mascara 

Also a free gift was given - Mascara Remover, Wonder Pore & Magic bubble O2 Water Peeling Pack.

(Some products I've listed are not in the photo because I have used it.)

I am currently towards the end of my final A-level exams, good luck everyone.
Let me know if your favourite products from Etude House!
REVIEW: K Drama | Dream High
Posted Thursday, 6 June 2013 // 06:54

The feeling of finishing a drama then immediately wanting to write a review is how I feel, this shows how passionate I am about this drama. Initially watching the first episode I wasn't interested however I continued to watch the second episode and I was hooked soon after. Firstly, the drama's main characters are all well known Korean actors and actresses which is why I started watching from the beginning. After watching Moon Embraces The Sun I didn't think I could yet move on to another K drama.

The story: 
The main plot is about the 6 teenagers aiming to be k pop idols however of course in a drama nothing goes smoothly, the main character Suzy (Miss A) as Go Hye-Mi in this is a daughter from a wealthy family however due to her father business gone bankrupt leading him to fled the country, she had to look after herself and her sister. Her father has accumulated huge debt with a loan shark, with the disappearance of Hye-Mi's father left the loan shark to resort to force Hye-Mi to pay back the loan. In order to pay back the loan she aim to be debut as a K pop idol.... 
Here is a summary of the drama, I recommend you to watch the drama before continue reading. 

1. I really enjoyed this drama from the start till end. The drama made me smile a lot and during 12th episode it made my eyes filled with tears. 
2. I really enjoyed all the characters, I love Suzy playing Go Hye-Mi, I think she really suited the role. Also IU is so adorable in this, I want to see another drama that she is in. 
3. Two of 2PM members in the drama is daebak. If you are a fan of both Taecyeon and Wooyoung then you won't be disappointed. 
4. I really ship IU and Wooyoung in this drama, the relationship is so adorable. I wanted to see more scenes of them two. 
5. Kim Soo-Hyun as Song Sam-Dong, he is the one who makes my cry in this drama. He is my favourite actor at the moment. I am really want to see another drama that he is in. Any suggestions? 
6. Finally, I loved the ending. Sometimes I like the ending to be sad to be less fictional however I was so happy it was a happy ending. Also that Go Hye-Mi chosen Song Sam-Dong at the end. 

Overall, it's a 9/10 drama. I highly recommend it, if you enjoy a rom com then you should enjoy this. I was addicted to this drama and finished it in four days. I am very impatient when it comes to watching dramas. I initially promised myself only watching one episode a day but I broke that promise the next hour of making it

I have honestly fallen for Kim Soo-Hyun after watching two drama of his and watching him on Running Man. He is so adorable and is a very talented actor. I will definitely watch another dramas of his.

My final night in Mong Kok. 

A mini re-cap of my trip to Hong Kong with my sister, I enjoyed Hong Kong so much this trip that I actually want to immigrate there! As Hong Kong is where I am from; I would like to experience the life style that I could have lived. The life in Hong Kong is quite up pace but I like that energy and warm weather it has. Though during my trip the weather was gloomy most days, the temperature always exceed 20 Celsius. Unlike the UK, at the time it was snowing! I am not a cold weather fan!

A little peek of Hong Kong of those who never travelled there. Definitely a tourist hot spot, I would highly recommend this place, though I maybe bias.

More Hong Kong related posts will be posted soon, I promise!

Much love
