Here is how the interior of the store looks like.

They also have a water/utensil station on the side for self-service.

Churro I got: Matcha Crunch with vanilla ice cream.

This churro consisted of regular churro with matcha coating sprinkled with fruity pebbles. Then this churro is set on top of a scoop of vanilla ice cream in a cute The Loop cup.

The texture is really good. Crunchy on the outside and soft on the inside. 

Disappointment: I couldn’t really taste the Matcha despite this being called “the Matcha Crunch” and one of the signature suggestions on the menu. 

Suggestion: If you want the full flavor of the matcha or any of the flavored churros, don’t overlap them with a strong, overpowering flavor like fruity pebbles.

Ice cream: The ice cream tasted like something you would get from Dairy Queen, which is good. I personally prefer the ice cream from Churroholic over the ice cream from The Loop. 

There are photo spots in the store for instagram photos.

I like the light fixtures of the place. It’s very light yet impressionable. And the color gold compliments the white space very well. I also think the mason jar tip jar is pretty cute too.

My overall rating of this place would be:

4/5

REVIEW – I’m a real GIRA Mask (Rose Slippery Skin) by Beauty Chuck

Product: I’m a real GIRA Mask (Rose Slippery Skin) by Beauty Chuck
Date Applied: July 22, 2018
Time: 7:00 AM
Duration: 15 minutes

Before applying a layer of foundation, I decided to apply this Rose Mask. I hoped by applying this mask before applying make up would help the make up settle and look nicer on my skin.

This is how the back looks like. The directions, instructions, and other informational things are mostly written in Korean. 

The packaging is recyclable and eco-friendly.

When you take it out of the packaging, the mask looks like this. I had to flip it inside out to unwrap the mask. 

I set the timer for 15 minutes with my iPhone.

This is how it looks like with the mask on. 

Feedback with mask on:

  • Sheet material feel light, thin, and soft on skin
  • The essence is light and not too sticky
  • Not as soothing as coconut but somewhat gentle

After 15 minutes, I took the mask off.

Feedback after taking off mask:

  • Good amount of essence left, not too much or too little
  • Very slight redness, so that good
  • Skin feels moisturized and cool

Did make up sit well after mask? 

  • Make up looks weird. It almost seemed like it was just sitting there and you can see its spotty. So that was disappointing. Maybe it’s me using it wrong, but I’ve seen videos from the company who distributes these masks have videos where the girl puts the masks on and applies make up after taking the mask off… hmm idk but that did not work out for me this time. 

My overall rating for I’m a Real GIRA Rose Mask is:

3/5

I got this mask from Facetory’s 4 sheet mask pack subscription service. So if you’re interested in trying it out too, please check out their website at https://www.facetory.com.

Comfort to my Soul

Leave a comment Standard

07.19.2018

Music has always been a part of my life. Even since childhood, music has been something that rejuvenated me. 

When I was down, it lifted me up
When I was hyper, it calmed me down
When I was awkward, it helped me loosen up
When I was confused and lost, it helped me find my way back

Today I find myself trying to pursue music as a hobby. I am trying my best to learn guitar so I could sing to the music I play so that I could have the effects the music I’ve heard so far has done for me. 

Do you have something you are passionate about? Something that makes you laugh? Something that makes you naturally so happy and bright? 

If there is that something that has been there in your life that has comforted you, cheered you on, and made you happy, do it. Whether it be a profession or as a hobby, do it. What’s the point of making lots of money if you aren’t happy? 

I chose my own path. I decided to pursue medicine and a specific path in Ophthalmology, but I don’t think I’ll ever stop singing and doing music here and there because it makes me feel alive and bright.

Because that’s what moves my soul.

 

REVIEW – Bunnyhill Coconut Moisturizing Mask Pack

Leave a comment Standard

Today I am going to give my feedback on Bunnyhill’s Coconut Moisturizing Mask Pack. According to the packaging, it’s:

  • Skin Matching
  • Hypoallergenic Mask
  • Moisturizing

“Coconut oil is absorbed quickly into the skin, so provide moisture and nourishment, and it helps skin to be healthy”

Yes, that “so” before “provide” is actually on the packaging. If I could edit, I would change it to:

“Coconut oil is absorbed quickly into the skin to provide moisture and nourishment, and it helps skin to be healthy”

How to Use Instructions: 

  1. After cleansing, dry face thoroughly
  2. Apply mask sheet onto the face
  3. Leave on for 15-20 minutes
  4. Remove mask and pat face with fingertips gently

Date Mask was applied: 07.16.2018
Time: 10:30PM
Left it on for: 15 min

My feedback of the mask out of the package:

  • This mask wasn’t as strangely tangled or wrapped in a too complicated manner. It took me good 10 seconds to gently unfold the mask to applicable form. 
  • ** Most sheet masks I’ve tried came packed in a way that was confusing to unwrap, but this was a lot easier, so I like!**

I took the mask like so

Put it on my face like this.

My feedback with the mask on: 

  • The sheet itself is so soft, gentle and smooth
  • Because it is coconut essence, it was very smoothing on my skin
    • My skin is usually super sensitive and turn red, itchy, and irritated easily, BUT my skin remained calm. There was no redness, itchiness, or irritation, which surprised me. 
  • The scent is very gentle, not overbearing

I set 15 minutes using Siri on my iPhone. 

~ 15 minutes later ~

Took the mask off after 15 minutes, patted the leftover essence into my face and neck area. 

After mask removal feedback:

  • No redness, itchiness, or irritation after removal
  • Skin feels so moisturized and healed
  • Face has that nice healthy glow

My overall rating for Bunnyhill’s Coconut Moisturizing Mask Pack is:

5/5

Summer Loving @ Newport Beach, Balboa Pier, CA

Comments 2 Standard

I love the state I grew up in. I love it’s brilliant rays and warm weathers with cool breezes despite getting tan from it from time to time. Today I found myself on the road to Newport Beach, California to get some fresh air. I haven’t really been here at an age where I could really comprehend how beautiful and clean it was. I am glad I drove through all the nasty traffic at 5PM to feel the soft breezes, hear the ocean roar and people enjoy time with the families, swim or even fish. 

I’ve been to Huntington and Laguna beach many times. However, I don’t think I’ve found a beach so clean and free of birds such as this one. I felt safe and secure. And finding parking wasn’t bad either. I found a parking instantly as I entered the parking lot. It was great. 

facetune_14-07-2018-10-51-33

The people were so kind. They were a little skeptical of me asking them to take pictures of me because I was alone haha. When I wasn’t sure exactly which beach or pier I was at, I asked two old couple. They kindly told me that I was at Balboa Pier/Balboa Island at Newport Beach. 

What I love about going on trips to places even if it’s within state, out-of-state, or abroad, is meeting new people, seeing new things, eating different foods, learning about the culture and history of the place, and most of all seeing the love the people express through their smiles for the place they live in. 

Hello Santa Monica

I recently took a little road trip to Santa Monica Pier. After roughly 2 hours of driving through Los Angeles traffic, I finally arrived at this beautiful location. It was great to see so many different people enjoy music, food, and the beautiful view. The breeze was amazing with the sunny California rays looking down on me.

Hello from the Other Side

Leave a comment Standard

Just uploaded my new video. It’s a simple video of me just saying “hello” to the youtube community. I don’t particularly like binding myself to specific categories to work in. I like to just explore and have fun. But it generally outlines my interests and what you will probably see in my videos and video blogs. Come along with me on my adventures of this journey called life. Let’s encourage and love one another in goodness and truth. Let’s not let negativity consume our lives, but let’s have our positivities shoo-away all the bad things. 

Smile is a beautiful thing

You are beautifully made

You are loved beautifully by beautiful people

Don’t let negativity drag you down

Encourage, not curse

Correct with love, not with pride

And be yourself
