THE CLASSICS OF DW~
Classic timepieces have this symbol of love attached to them. Most watches are not seen when worn, but once someone wears a classic timepiece, it catches a couple stares. People have came to ask me, "what is that watch?" and it just gets me excited to tell them where I got it from and also *nudge *nudge...give them a promo for the watch. Daniel Wellington is definitely not the only ones that sell classic timepieces nor is it the most inexpensive, but the story behind DW classics make you want to buy one for a dear friend.
THE STORY BEHIND DW:
I love that they include a small story behind how DW brand came about with every watch sold, because I think it's inspiring. The story sums up to being inspired by a friend's style to start a company under that friend's name. This is why I wondered who Daniel Wellington was and how this company was able to profit so much off of a simple idea. The founder of DW met an amazing guy from the British Isles who had a great sense of style and who wore a classic timeless watch that inspired the founder to create Daniel Wellington under the gentleman's name. In the end they because best friends and the company blew up. As long as this story is passed on, it gives this watch a meaning to just looking at time. I guess this is why I'm intrigued.
The story is also perfect to tell on a Valentine's day because love from a friendship has a big impact on one's life. That's how much friendship impacted the founder's life. The watch creates a symbol of love, friendship, kindness, and inspiration.
CLASSIC BLACK: CORNWALL
I chose this watch because the gold outlining the black just looks great and stands out as well. I picked this particular strap because I find that it looks better in photos than the leather strap and also because you don't see many watches with cloth straps like this one. The straps add chunkiness to the entire look.
DW also gave me this heart charm for Valentine's Day and this simple detail just adds beauty to the whole watch. I love it! Also another pro to the watch is that it's simple to use and has a lot of adjustments to fit every wrist. ♡♡♡

Trust me, I didn't think I would climb up there either. Even though I've climbed the lower falls of Yosemite, I felt this nervousness after climbing this large rock wall near the ocean. Maybe it has to do with the fact that it's near a vast ocean of unknown. I felt my heart thumping as I stood high up there trying to pose for a photo, it was that feeling of going up on a roller coaster. There was wind blowing and it felt like I could fall at any moment, so I didn't realize that I had this mini fear of heights.
I guess moral of my story is that there are things we must be brave to go for and overcome as cheesy as that may sound. I'm starting school now and that is the CLIFF that I must overcome. Let's wish each other luck and pray to the clouds that you can get back down in one piece. ♡♡♡
For outfit details, I realize that every outfit always has a piece that is thrifted.
Shoes: Nike Huarache
I also blended in with the sky that day for wearing so much baby blue. xD
BB Cosmetic was kind enough again to send me a couple products to review. I chose these two products because 1) I've been loving Tony Moly masks and trying out new masks and 2) I needed a new cleanser! There will be more pros to these two products then cons, and thanks to BB Cosmetic for their generosity. ♡♡♡
There's nothing bad to say about these masks from Tony Moly. BB Cosmetic sent me a pack of 11, 1 in which I tried already. I previously bought a couple of the Tony Moly masks, one moisturizing and one brightening and I loved both of them. The one I tried out of this set was the pore cleansing, and although I don't see a big difference in minimizing my pores, the masks were definitely moisturizing! I can't judge the masks after only using them a couple of times to look for results, because like any product it takes a while to see results.
This set had a variety of skin clearing masks, brightening masks, vitality masks, etc.. Personally after using them, I find that they are all moisturizing, fits my face well, and not too thick of a mask. Have you ever bought a face mask that just feels too thick and heavy while you have it on? Yeah, that's what I dislike the most! I also don't like masks that come with the plastic cover that you need to take off before putting the mask on, who else is with me on that?
There are no bad effects or really any cons to the Tony Moly masks, and I will absolutely purchase them again when I run out...which one be anytime soon since I have so many!
The second product I received was The Face Shop's Rice Water Bright Cleansing Foam. Since there were many good reviews on this product, I thought I would give it a try. Pros are that it was cleaning and did foam really well just like any other foam cleanser would and leaves your skin feeling really elastic afterwards.
What I normally do is cleanse my face at night and in the shower, but with this product is better used during the evening when you want to take off your makeup and not in the shower. I find that it leaves my face really elastic like some cleansers would and I don't like that feeling while in the shower as I want my face to feel soft after using a makeup remover/ cleanser. I guess that would be the con of the product. Also it can't be used around the eyes or else it will hurt because it's some strong cleanser and not made for removing eye makeup. The rest of my makeup it actually removed pretty well.
I do recommend this product as a basic cleanser used with a Konjac sponge and even one to be used in the morning, but if you want to find something that removes all your makeup, then this cleanser is not the one you're looking for. I also like this for it's brightening properties so I will continue to use this all up since it's a nice texture, smells nice, and foaming on the face, but I will use this in the morning rather then at night.
If you want to check out the two products on BB Cosmetic's website, go ahead and click on the PHOTOS above! I know it's also been a while since I've posted, but I'm trying to post more often so that I don't lose my writing skills in which I don't use at school.

HAPPY NEW YEAR!
I really should find a way to blog just a little more, I'm so bad at this. Maybe if it was my career...but that's a far thought. I want to reflect on my year, so I uploaded a year in review video on my YOUTUBE. I want to say that the year definitely had it's ups and downs and lots of times where I just wanted to give up because of my lack of motivation. But, it did have it's good moments The moments with friends, family, the adventure, the love, the food, and everything else is what made it special! Thank you for following along this journey and more adventures lie in the future ahead <3
