This is one of my favorite sustainable brand purchases. I have to say they don't have a lot of options (pieces) to choose from but their color selection is amazing! It makes sense though because they're not fast fashion:)

OKAY first thing. I travel budget and always look for the cheapest way to get around places and I recently came across Peach airlines.

It was my first time seeing them when I was booking a trip in Japan (Tokyo to Osaka) The flight itself was honestly a 5/10. Also one of the weirdest flights I've ever been on. Crazy turbulence and I felt the strangest after waking up from a nap (idk...) ANYWAY

Besides the bad flight experience, I actually had two encounters with customer service both at the airport and online. Airport service 1000/100 super friendly and exceeded my expectations. 100/10 for online, took a minute to reach someone and get the story right but they also helped me with lots of info and made sure i was good.
I'm definitely going to book again with them for my next trip:)

This is my second time boarding a cute plane like this so I'm not surprised these exist but I've never seen a Pokemon one!

I flew from GMP (Korea Gimpo) --> TSA (Taiwan SongShan) and luckily came across their first launch day!
Watch these vids if you wanna see more cuteness:

The ticket purchasing process wasn't too complicated, not the easiest process though. Nice they have english. If you're flying from ICN Incheon Airport (South Korea's International main airport), there's SO many deals its crazy. (checkout photos)

Definitely will be keeping an eye out for more deals and hoping to come across this cute place again :P

Tip for consumers:
MAKE SURE YOU LOOK FOR DEALS

I've been budget traveling for the past year and recently just found out about Tiger Air (a budget friendly airline that flys around Asia) "We fly from Taiwan to all around Japan, Korea, Philipines and Thailand 30 routes with 23 different destinations, let's travel all around Asia with Tigerair."

Not sure if it was just the plane I was on (or all of them) but it's quite big? (than I expected) 3 rows on both sides. Mainly because this isn't an airplane on the main terminals (I had to take a shuttle at both airports). The service was really nice for the budget price and the plane was packed! Oh and also, these plane aren't flying all the time so they do have limited dates and times.

Watch these two tiktoks of mine if you'd like to see more details/vlog of my travels!

Looking forward to flying with them again :)

I've bought from Stylevana a couple times now. They are a beauty (and kind of fashion website) that sells beauty products from Korea and Japan.
I've seen people say that they aren't super reliable and I've fortunately have had no issues with shipping both in state and abroad but I would keep that in mind. They do have a variety of products I haven't been able to buy anywhere else and their products are generally cheaper. I would Still try it out though especially if the items are a lot cheaper or if you can't find it anywhere else.
I would give this review a 4 or 3.5 if I could but on behalf of some of my friends and subscribers who have had issues I would need to rate it a 3.

You can see my YouTube video for review on the products I've gotten from them!

Wanted to switch up my wardrobe for the fall so I got some Korean fashion pieces from ordicle New York! I would say they are a bit on the pricer side however the quality is amazing and some pieces are really worth your buck!

I've tried digestion pills before and they really work but I recently got these "bloat" pills from Arrae and I've been liking them! I take them more during the day after meals if I feel that I am bloating often need digestion help.

Another thing I love if that it's nut free, vegan, organic (and other things like filler/gluten/cruelty free too)

-- Will be back with an updated review once I have finished the bottle :)

I decided to dye my hair last minute and bought Blackpink Jennie's Sahara Hello Bubble red dye and I'm super glad I bought it from Yami!

First review, Yami's platform sells lots of cool asian products from food to beauty and it's super easily accessible on their app.
Second review, the dye that I got worked pretty well I'd say. I have part bleached and the color showed pretty well. I would buy again!
Third review is for customer service. I actually received a call and few texts from the person who was delivering my package and he was so accommodating and made sure I got it since I wasn't at home!

I used to have a Seagate hard drive as well as WD (no shade to these companies) but I've had issues with both of them at some point. Still use the Seagate one but I recently bought myself this small sandisk one I've seen a lot of people use. I was running out of storage on the other so I thought of switching a company and trying the SSD external drives.

This Sandisk one is first of all, so adorable (look at the sizing of it compared to my Seagate one!) SSD's are in general more expensive but as someone who does video editing I need something that is faster and more durable (I drop it sometimes.) also more compact (for travel) and it consumes less energy which is amazing because my computer battery does really fast...

Anyway, great product, super glad I got it :D

I got into looking at skincare more seriously in the past two years because I started getting acne and needed something to clean my dead skin cells etc etc. I also have had strawberry skin growing up so I've been using this bha body treatment lotion and it's been working really well! Highly recommend checking out Paulas Choice products if you haven't yet :)

I've been wanting to get headphones for a while now but didnt because I felt like they were too pricy for me. But when my earbuds broke I knew it was time...

I bought this one (linked below) for $249 refurbished rather than full price of $379 because it's basically the same thing https://www.bose.com/en_us/products/outlet/noise-cancelling-headphones-700-fr.html#v=noise_cancelling_headphones_700_fr_black

If you want to see comparison between the famous Sony XM4's and these Bose 700s check out these tiktoks I made :) or you can search up "justjoanne bose"

I am SUCH a fan of this brand (and it's not because of Selena) but just how amazing this brand's values and their products are. I'm SO glad I tried out their lipstick line. I bought their "With gratitude, dewy lip balm" and the name itself just tells you how amazing it is.

I have eczema and very dry lips so its really hard to find products that don't irritate my skin, that are hydrating, and have lasting color. I have to mention that this is not a tint so it doesn't fully stay on but I think it's already amazing as it is. The color I picked is called Support and I seriously love it so much. Its such a nice dark warm tone shade and I just love it even more as it is a dewy balm. It's also cool to see that this is made in Korea (motherland of skincare/beauty) haha. Oh and also one more bonus: it smells amazing!

Lastly,, wanna share that the design/packaging of this product is great too. Last on one end so it doesn't roll around and it closes with a magnet click (but not too strong!) seriously go get yourself one ;)

I've been seeing a lot of people talk about Pela phone cases recently and since I have a yellowing clear case I decided to try these out! I've also been purchasing from sustainable and ethical brands for clothing and thought why not for my next phone case XD The phrase Pela has on their website is "You care about the planet. Pela makes it easy to show it."

I see that Pela ships form the US but even so, free shipping can take up to 8-14 days (in addition to 1-3 processing time) At first it was a bit frustrating because I felt like my cases was never going to come but now I totally understand since they say that they "do their best to get your cases to you as fast AND as sustainably as possible!"

I have hella dry skin and sometimes hand sanitizers dry out my hands so I always look for hydrating ones~ I love Touchland because their sanitizers are sprays and not gel (which can sometimes get annoying when giving to friends, spray just makes life a lot easier lol)

Touchland also sells this little pouch which I love so much because I hook it on to my fannypack and its just so convenient! I've also got LOTS of questions and compliments whenever I take it out so yeah I'd definitely recommend buying a couple for yourself :) ps. They come in many scented flavors too
