I believe we all have a phase in our life when we try all the face creams when can until one finally works well with our skin. Some face creams were moisturizing enough but just too greasy and to be honest, felt too icky for me. Others were too thin and didn't really do much moisturizing my dry skin. I guess you could say I felt like Goldilocks trying out different face creams. Finally, one day, I tried a sample of Korres Yoghurt Cream and voila, it was perfection. Initially, I was skeptical that Korres Yoghurt Cream wouldn't be the fit for me because it's intentionally made for combination/oily skin. But upon a weeks worth of trying this out, I've realized that I'd finally found the one.

You're probably wondering what #TheSoProject is. Let me introduce you! It's a new idea developed by Steph over at Stephsinsidevoice.blogspot.com to help introduce beginners to the world of beauty. Over the course of nine weeks, participating beauty bloggers will talk about their niche in the following topics: skincare, concealer, foundation, blusher, bronzer, lipstick, etc. This week the topic is Skincare. I've decided to talk about the topic that I know best- and that's Skincare for Dry Skin! This post will cover everything you need to know about dry skin and how to take care of it!

Honestly, it feels like yesterday I just got the July bag. So you can imagine my surprise when I saw that the August Ipsy bag had arrived. This months Ipsy bag theme is "Glamour Academy". The bad is a purple and gold with Not bad, but not really my thing. I do enjoy the colors though! While Ipsy has been doing so well for me, I feel that this wasn't really the best bag for me.

Next week is fashion week and that means a ton of events in NYC. I'm really excited for this one in particular: A Night For Green Beauty. They will be showcasing some of my favorite organic and environment friendly brands. I'm really excited to see some of my favorites like Ilia while trying out others as well. I also want to see their new lip pencils, especially Karma Chameleon. Plus, not to mention, there will be a ton of other high end organic beauty stuff there. I can imagine it's like going to a Spirit Beauty Lounge store.

Around my birthday this year, I decided to treat myself to a lipstick. Lipsticks are usually the one makeup item that I cave into. Prior to this, I never really heard much about Edward Bess, but after seeing their wearable color choices and seeing their good reviews on MUA, I decided to give this one a shot. This is my review on Endless Dream.

This months Yuzen box is all about the transition from Summer into Fall. As always, it comes with an eloquent little note written from Jen and Ted. You really get a nice feeling that they definitely hand picked each item with a lot of thought. This months box came in a cute little reusable box. (I have to say, I really do love the Yuzen designs.) This is what I got in this season's box.

Several years back, my friends and I were going to the beach and one of them asked me if I had any truly waterproof eyeliners. I pulled this one out and let her use it to the beach. It was a fun time and towards the end of the night, she was surprised it was still on her. To this day, if I ever need any waterproof eyeliner, I stick to this one.

Hi everyone! I'm pretty excited to share with you this review of the Disney's Ariel Compact from Sephora. I was actually pretty lucky to get it because apparently it sold out within four hours. I only heard it was out from my daily dose of reddit. Without that, I probably would've missed this. The first time I opened it, I was pretty excited. This would be the first of the well coveted collectible disney mirrors. I am pretty sad though that I missed out on the Cinderella one, but that's another story.

I'm pretty excited to share with you a couple gifts I received over the past few weeks. Some are birthday gifts while others are PR gifts. I guess this is my version of the July Favorites this month. So hope you enjoy!

Quite some time ago, I decided to venture onto different teas. This particular adventure delved into Sencha tea. Just the name itself called for me. Back then, I had no idea what Sencha tea was. All I knew was that it sounded pretty exotic and grassy. So, the adventurous part of me said, "go for it!" Here is my experience with Sencha Tea.
