Much to my mother's amusement, I've recently become a hoarder in all things skin care. To be honest, I barely recognize the defiant sunscreen-hating Asian I once was.
I've been gaga for the Korean 10-step beauty regime—the one Soko Glam founder, Charlotte Cho, eloquently outlines in her book, The Little Book of Skin Care. Because of that, I've been trying all sorts of new products. The Raw Coop Maple Sauce and the Dr. Jart Water Fuse Sleeping Mask are among my favorite essences and masks.
I've also been trying out these amazing body oils from Butter Elixir. The best part? They don't leave an oily residue, just a nice and healthy shine.
There's also my sassy Pamela Barsky pouch. It's been a perfect makeup essentials bag for when I'm on the go.

I love the Puma x Rihanna sneakers so much. They sold out quickly but I found them at Opening Ceremony on Howard St. and I'm so happy I did. It's a sneaker with a slight platform.
I'm just as obsessed with the Lumee phone case, which funny enough, my nana got for me for Christmas because "I'm on social media." What a woman! It has come in handy so many times when there isn't great selfie lighting.
Last, the Sony RX100 IV is an incredible pocket camera that shoots 4K video and, to me, that's huge!
I've been buying my notebooks and agendas from Moleksine for years now and they never disappoint. This one is flexible so it's easier to fit in my purse!
As for the fragrance, Clean Reserve's Sueded Oud is really adventurous for me. I usually wear their Blonde Rose scent, but have been switching up with this one at night. It's muskier and has more depth to it.
In terms of lips, when I wear these one on top of the other, it's a great day lip. Nars lip pencils are always my go-to because they're easy to apply, especially when I'm in a rush. The Smashbox one is new and I'm liking it so far, it's really light.
I'm a green tea addict and this Dragon's Pearl green tea is amazing and so smooth. David's Tea is from my hometown (Montreal, Canada!) and I'm so happy that they have it in New York!
I've just started trying out these Tula products. The exfoliator leaves your skin super smooth and soft. The moisturizer is great too, it smells wonderful.
Oh, and I just picked up this Saint Laurent card case. I needed one for my smaller bags that I can't fit big wallets. I actually think I'm going to use this full time, it's so much easier, especially since I never have cash anyway.
