Skincare & Beauty
In Northeast Philadelphia, born and raised, on the playground is where I spent some of my days. Most of my younger days were spent writing at home. Now I work with words for a living.
Specialties and interests include eCommerce/online retail, product reviews, skincare and beauty, travel, martial arts, influencer marketing, and general musings about life.
Skincare & Beauty
Whether you consider yourself a “skincare addict” or not, I implore anyone who travels by plane to adopt an in-flight skincare routine.
Once upon a time, I avoided parabens like the plague and used moisturizer as a spot treatment.
Keep Cool is a cruelty-free skin-care brand that was founded in 2015 in South Korea. The base of this toner is 85% bamboo water, which not only hydrates skin but also protects it from free radicals.
Some insight about how long one should mask. (Hint: you don’t always have to follow the rules.)
Finding Korean beauty on Amazon is incredibly easy these days. However, many of these products are sold by third-parties that may be pushing counterfeit merchandise. Fortunately, several K-beauty companies have been opening up their own Amazon storefronts to help guide consumers towards legitimate goods at reasonable prices.
Korean beauty products are all the rage in America these days. Beauty emporiums such as Sephora and Ulta have their own dedicated sections loaded with all the cleansers, moisturizers, masks, and other essentials that make up the highly involved K-beauty skincare process.
As Amazon continues to grow, so does its portfolio of in-house brands. It makes sense, after all, for one of the largest retailers in the world to seek more ways to further entrench itself in the everyday lives of consumers.
It's the weekend! At a loss for things to do? We have some ideas: Immerse yourself in a full season of action-packed anime, create a playlist of "bops," or embark on a new video game adventure...all for the pretty price of zero dollars.

Whether you’re worried about the coronavirus or other types of disease, you can decrease your chances of getting sick by taking proper precautions before, during, and after your travels. Here are our tips for keeping yourself safe and healthy on the road.
It’s easy to get lost in the homogenous slew of online booking sites, especially since most don’t offer anything different from the standard. With a bit of extra work and flexibility, though, there are still bargains out there.
Have any long-haul flights coming up this summer? That's awesome! But how prepared are you for hours of air travel? Often, we're so wrapped up in pre-flight rituals and arrival protocols that we tend to neglect how to best take care of ourselves while we're thousands of miles above ground.
Blogging & Social Media
Instagram is a powerful hype machine, but also disappointing
Recently, I shared my Skincare Wish List, which made me realize how much I rely on Instagram when it comes to prospective beauty purchases. Most of the products I featured were discovered via IG accounts I follow and trust. So it made me wonder about the buying habits of other beauty lovers.
It's already been two months of Mondays. This blog isn't my first rodeo. I've been posting my ramblings and rumblings to the Internets for as long as I can remember. I've maintained several blogs and blog-like things in the past, and most of those have gone the way of the dodo.
What began as an endeavor to become less lazy has turned into so much more than that. Here's what the martial arts have done for me physically and mentally.

One of the realest series I've ever watched is a cartoon about a washed-up television star. Who is also an anthropomorphic horse. BoJack Horseman is a comedy, albeit a dark one. It delves into topics that are an antithesis to its lighthearted character designs: depression, narcissism, social and familial dysfunction, the many flavors of addiction, and death.
