Advice is needed

Hello readers. I’ve been interested in the idea of vlogging for quite a while now and I need some advice by fellow bloggers out here. So it would be helpful if anyone who is reading this can leave a comment, thank you.

I want to begin vlogging but I am not sure how and where to start! So far I’m into  the beauty, cooking and health demographic. I want to be unique, to be myself without seeming too unnatural either. Sadly, I don’t always get new products as I’m a person who is happy with what they have at the moment. I’m broke and a student who lives with their parents, so I don’t have the money to buy a new camera or new products.

I need tips on how to begin vlogging, as I’m a total noob at a lot of things and I’m also not a social butterfly either! I barely talk at school, so I’m soft spoken and sometimes I do in fact stutter. Great, huh? How to vlog when you’re a broke as heck student? How to get better lighting with a Canon Powershot digital camera? What are the niches that most people are into? How the heck do I make a good video with good SEO? What should I vlog about?

Comment down your ideas and tips, it’d mean so much. Thank you, whoever you are. You might have saved a dear anxious brain from overthinking.

Avon Glimmerstick Diamonds Eyeliner [REVIEW+SWATCH TEST]

  Hello everyone! I’m back to writing another cosmetics review for you guys. I’ve been busy and I haven’t been shopping for any new cosmetics as I feel I don’t need anything else for now. I’m really into using natural products like aloe vera gel and baking soda for skincare. I also apply minimal makeup to my face to reduce my risk of breaking out. Also, I will be reviewing an Avon product that I think is a favourite for many.

  The product I’m reviewing is “Avon True Color Glimmerstick Diamonds Eyeliner“.  The stick is black and you can twist the bottom end to get your product out. It has a main creamy colour with some sparkly shimmer in it for a diamond-like effect.

The three colours from left to right are: Sugar Plum, Black Ice and Smokey Diamond.  The Avon website says:

“BENEFITS
• Provides true color (color in package is the same as on eyelid)
• Stays color true (color does not change hue/color as it wears)
• Is fuss proof/fail proof
• Doesn’t pull or tug on eyelids
• Defines eye with perfect precision
• Creamy smooth glide-on-color
• Is long wearing (wears/lasts for 10 hours)
• Acceptable for use as a kohl liner
• Retractable
• Bold, sparkly finish
• Clinically tested”

  The product does not give me an allergic reaction or tug on my eyelids. It has a very smooth finish and you have precision while applying. The colour does not change within the day as well. The only thing is that I wish there’d be even more product inside. I love the colour choices and I think I’d always buy from Avon either way, their cosmetic products are excellent-quality.

Korean Snack Review

Okay, so I have a Korean penpal from Gunpo city. We have been communicating for around a year so far, I met her off a typical penpal site. Initially, I was just looking for a friend who can teach me more about Korean culture, the language and also help with English. She is so nice, sweet and adorable. She sent me a care package last year for my birthday in June, I was so delighted.  In my package I received Korean salty treats, sweet snacks, a letter, Kakaotalk Friends bandaids, handphone decor, innis free masks and a drawing. I still have yet to send her a package, I plan to do so for her birthday in March. Now I will be reviewing the snacks I have tried.

  1. Shin Ramyun 라면 – 농심 (Nongshim)

Shin ramyun is essentially the Korean version of Japanese ramen. It is very spicy to those who aren’t used to spicy food. For me it is nothing, I am very used to spicy food. It has a bit of dried kimchi in there too and has a delicious broth. Best served with chopsticks. It’s an instant taste of Korea in a cup. 9/10 since I prefer kimchi instant noodle soup.

2. Poka Chip, Onion flavour by Orion (포카칩 – 오리온)

20160910_192827

100% potato, 100% subtle but delicious flavour. It is not super strong onion flavour, however it topped my list of delicious chips that I have tried in my life. Chips in Canada is too oily and saturated, but these have beat them. I can say these are like the lighter Korean version of Lays chips. 10/10 on the scale.

3. Pepero Sticks, Original Chocolate Flavour (빼빼로)

img_20160906_233748

Pepero sticks are so far the most popular sweet snack in all of South Korea. From normal kids, to teenagers on the streets to K-Pop idols, you will see this treat be eaten no matter what. I suppose this is what they call the Korean version of Pocky? It had a rich chocolatey thick taste, however sadly the bread stick part seemingly wasn’t as tasty. 8/10.

4. Mallang Cow Strawberry Milk Chews by Lotte (말랑카우)

img_20160918_174628The expression on the wrapper means “is it difficult?” I figure it’s because the candy is quite uhm, chewy. If you like strawberry milk flavoured things, this is for you. I am not a huge fan of chewables, but I love strawberry flavoured candies. 7/10, weird aftertaste.

5. Lotte Sand (Cookies)

 

My penpal told me this is what Koreans consider Oreo cookies, or something similar to it. It is very cheap, maybe around $1.20 USD. It tastes nearly exactly like Oreos. I love cookies and my family nearly ate all of it. Perfect with milk. 10/10 for cookie lovers.

Overall, I loved these treats and I recommend that you try some Korean treats and food in the future if you haven’t already. Their cuisine is aromatic, colourful and full of surprises. Stay tuned for more reviews, posts about skincare, beauty and more.

 

 

 

5 Ways to Use Aloe Vera Gel

So you have an aloe vera plant hanging out in a pot in your home as a decoration, but do you know about the amazing benefits that come from aloe? From topical use to ingestion, it’s quite a versatile plant. Take a look at the multifarious ways you can use the clear succulent gel in your daily life.

1. Sunburn Treatment 

 Because of aloe vera’s anti-inflammatory properties, it can help in soothing reddened, burnt skin caused by prolonged exposure to ultraviolet rays. Minor sunburns on the face can be healed with just few topical treatments of aloe vera gel cream. Halt the use if you develop an itching, red rash as that could indicate an allergic reaction to aloe vera.

 

2. Aftershave 

  The gel contains two hormones: auxin and gibberillins which aid in healing small cuts that could be produced after shaving. Apply the gel every time after shaving, for a soothing healing effect. Within a few uses, your risks of having ingrown hairs reduces.

3. Skincare

  Aloe vera has natural anti-fungal and anti-bacterial agents used for treating small face marks, pimples, wrinkles and wounds. No wonder why its gel is infamously used in many cosmetic products. Cleanse daily and apply the gel on all unwanted spots, wrinkles and freckles. You will see and feel the difference within 7 days. It won’t necessarily “cure” acne, because acne is caused by hormonal imbalance, diet and other lifestyle issues. However, aloe vera gel will surely hydrate your skin, dry up your spots and make your skin feel smoother and aids in clearing up acne scars. If you truly want to reduce acne, eat more healthy foods and try cutting out or reducing unnatural sugar and gluten intake.

4. Digestion 

 “Aloe vera is considered a laxative-acting food. The gel-filled plant increases intestinal water content, stimulates mucus secretion and contains enzymes that help the body break down food.” (Gut Health Project). The gel can be used to ease constipation, improve digestion of food and it also promotes gut health. It can also be used to lessen yeast growth, helps the growth of digestive flora and balances the body’s pH levels. Drink aloe vera juice after every large meal to promote the processing of food. Drink the juice on an empty stomach the first thing you wake up for weight loss. Be aware that consuming aloe latex (yellow substance under the skin) can cause diarrhea in some individuals as it is a stimulant laxative.

5. Hair Care

  Aloe vera contains proteolytic enzymes which assist in repairing dead skin cells, reduces dryness and itching as well. It acts as an amazing conditioner, thus making your hair silky and easier to comb. It also can be used to treat dandruff and promotes hair growth. Massage aloe vera gel on your scalp slowly in a circular motion to promote circulation to your hair roots for hair growth. Use the gel on the ends of your hair and wait at least 5 minutes before rinsing for more softer, healthier tips. To use as a mask, use a mixture of aloe vera gel and honey (or lemon juice),  lathering it through your locks and wrapping your hair in foil, fabric or a hairnet for at least 15 minutes before rinsing it out. Your hair will be silky, soft and shiny. No need for extra chemicals, right?

 

There are many more ways to care for your body using aloe vera gel. Never underestimate the power of this super plant, you and your body won’t regret it. I hope you use your aloe vera well!
