Museum of Feelings (sorta)

Hung out with Elias around mid-December to catch up & see where life had taken us so far. We also wanted to check out the Museum of Feelings, an interactive pop-up museum sponsored by Glade, but we were not prepared for the enormous line and wait time of almost 4 hours for a 20 minute experience. It was a beautiful day and we had an incredible view of the waterfront so we decided to make it our own day of feelings.

Skincare Routine · March 2016

IMG_7271

I can’t believe that the last time I put together a beauty routine post was in 2013! It’s been nearly 3 years and my routine’s changed almost entirely since then. I’m going to be switching out some of my heavier products since spring is around the corner (FINGERS CROSSED) so I before I pack things away, I thought thought I’d share a monster-sized post about all the products I’ve been using this winter to keep my skin in check. Hopefully in a few months time, I’ll get around to a spring/summer routine post as well.

One of my goals this year has been to finish up using products & to give away things that I’m not going to use and one of the ways I’ve been doing this is to use a separate day and night item for steps that you probably don’t need 2 products for (ie. toner, eye cream, facial oil, etc.) Please don’t be alarmed by how many products there are and keep in mind that it’s not necessary to use all of these things. Also! I really wanted to talk about every item in detail, but ended up trying to cut it down. This is still a whopping 4000 word post so kudos to anyone who reads it all the way through.

PS: Splitting makeup & beauty so you’ll see my everyday makeup routine in a following post ✨

Queens Eats: Omonia Cafe 🍰, Salt & Fat 🐷, Ariyoshi 🐙

DSC00903

On today’s edition of Queens Eats! Elias and I had planned a trip to MoMA PS1 on a hot summer day only to discover that while the museum was open, all the exhibits were closed for the Warm Up summer concert series!! Usually admission to the museum is distinct from admission to the concert, but there was going to be press coverage that day and as a result the museum decided closed all the exhibitions and installations :T I even wore a cute dress & ridiculous shoes so I could be the most Art that I could be.

So instead, we decided we’d fast forward to the eating part our day and went food-hopping in Astoria and Sunnyside.
