Travel Essentials

Skincare is heavy and not always easy to bring a long when travelling especially shorter trips.
I usually buy travel sized friendly items in Korea and Japan because they always have them. And I also have empty containers so I can fill them up with my fave products.
In Korea and Japan they also sell a lot of the products in smaller travel sizes, even at convenient stores sometimes. Some items that are my essentials are these:

For the past years there have been a boom of various pads, pre-soaked with goodies.

A few brands providing these:

YGs new fave lady - Blackpink's Jennie.
I like Blackpink but more and more I see kinda fiece input to what made me love 2NE1.
I'm not saying their are the same but I see what YG is putting his efforts and how!

Back to Jennie's solo, it's ok... It's not as fierce and mind blowing. It's just another song.
I saw, I listened and I turned on the next tune...

What do you think?

Thai red curry

Cravings occur from time to time in my life..
The other week I craved Thai red curry, one of the few Thai foods I can actually eat.
Luckily it could be easily solved and it was quick to make. Anyone can disagree on what I put into my curry but it was things I like ^^
Chicken, bell pepper, cauliflower, onion, water chestnut, peas

Protect your skin

Sun products are important for many things and comes in different forms.
Important is that it absorbs or reflects the sun's ultraviolet (UV) radiation and helps to protect against sunburn. Diligent use of sunscreen can also slow or temporarily prevent the development of wrinkles, moles and sagging skin.
Also, sunscreens can be classified into physical sunscreens (i.e. reflects sunlight) or chemical sunscreens (i.e., absorb the UV light).

To use sunscreen is a very important step in many Asian's skincare routine.
Compare to us in the West who loves a great tan, most Asians fear it!
To sum it up
West - Tan = Holidays
East - Tan = work on the field / wrinkles and sagging skin!

Please take it with a pinch of salt, not all are like this is West vs East. But I have more Western friends who wants to go to get a tan compare to my Eastern, meaning Asian friends.

In Sweden where I live, I have to say it's not easy to find many sunscreens for the face, there are of course a few options but not same range as in Asia.
I have tried a few here in Sweden and some actually gave me rashes! I found one decent from the Pharmacy - Apoteket.

I have to admit, I'm not using sunscreen every day, I should but I don't...
I do on sunny or somewhat sunny days but not on gloomy and rainy onces, which I should because there are bad UV coming. But I also have to say, in Sweden the UV is not as strong as in other countries. Enough with the excuses.
I know I need to become better!!!

So which one should you use?
Well... I guess it depends on you. To know a sunscreen is not the same and no I'm not only talking about SPF and PA's I'm also talking on the function - water resistant, white cast, feeling against skin, if you use make up, acne prone, hydration.. etc.
There are many many factors!! Is it a Surprise?
Also look at where it's from, e.g. EU and Korea has stronger laws for approval than the US.
And a sun screen that works wonders for you might not work on your bestie or family member!

Here are a few in my stock of different ones!

Moistfull Collagen Cream

Who hasn't heard about this product? The Etude House Moistfull Collagen Cream.
When I was introduced to this cream it was said: This face cream is enriched with Etude House's super collagen and Baobab water to provide moisture and keep your skin hydrated for over 12 hours. The gel texture makes this a good choice for dry to combination skin types. 
A little goes a long way and it absorbs quickly into the skin without leaving any greasy residue or heavy feeling behind. Skin feels soft and supple after application.

I can agree my skin feels soft and not greasy, but is it the best I have used?
Did I see a big difference?
I'm actually torn, it is good but not great. What I mean is that I can feel the smoothness and my skin is moist. But it doesn't provide my skin with the overall moist compare to some other creams I have used.  I would buy it again but it's not the first I'd go for.


Weight: 160g
Size: 2.54 oz / 75 ml

Ingredients: Hydrolyzed Collagen, Butylene Glycol, Cyclopentasiloxane, Glycerin, Cyclohexasiloxane, Glyceryl Polymethacrylate, Hydrogenated Lecithin, Cetearyl Alcohol, Adansonia Digitata Fruit Extract, Adansonia Digitata Seed Oil, Betaine, Kaolin, Cetyl Ethylhexanoate, Pca Dimethicone, Dimethiconol, Glyceryl Stearate, Sodium Polyacrylate, Stearic Acid, Silica, Ammonium Acryloyldimethyltaurate/Vp Copolymer, Poloxamer 407, Polyglyceryl-3 Methylglucose Distearate, Phytantriol, Ppg-5-Laureth-5, Hydrogenated Polydecene, Hydrogenated Polyisobutene, Alcohol, Water, Disodium Edta, Phenoxyethanol, Fragrance

Double lasting foundation

This is one of Korea's most popular foundation.
The only reason I bought it..haha
I love my cushions but decided to try.
Funny thing is that I thought number 24 Amber, the darkest shade would be good for me.
But it turned out to be too dark! A first!
After trying and trying and with help from my friend and shop clerk, I bought it in Sand.

So what's the verdict?
This one covers, I had two layers. But the thing is, it oxidize on my face pretty bad.
I think it's because I have dry skin. It sinks into my pores and it flakes all over.
I don't know if it has to do with my beautyblender but I'm not pleased.
It fits better if I keep on spraying mist on my face but that's not how it should be.

I had high hopes but this one was not for my skin.

[미스터 션샤인 OST Part 11] See You Again (Feat. 리처드 용재 오닐)

My week treat is to follow this K-Drama Mr Sunshine on Netflix.
So far of all songs, this is my fave one.
The song is very sad but JiYoung is one that really makes the song speaks loud.

Funny thing I listened to it at home, my hubby went...seriously who died?
He is Korean so he understands the lyrics and could sense the message..^^


See your eyes
See your face
자꾸 가슴이 뛰어서

See your face
See your eyes
맘에 품은 걸 알았죠

내가 살아온
세상 어느 순간보다 더

그댈 둘러싼
시간 꿈 모두 다 한 조각
공기처럼 간직했죠

너무나 아파서 슬픈 사랑은
매일 밤이면 낯선 얼굴로 서서
저기 바람은 가고 있는 길을
알고 있다 말하죠

I’ll be there
함께 하나요

See your eyes
See your face
자꾸 눈물이 흘러서

가진 것
아닌 것
아무 소용이 없었죠

내가 살아갈 세상
어느 곳에서도 그 이름
부를 수 없어서

이토록 아팠던 우리 사랑은
매일 밤이면 낯선 얼굴로 서서
저기 바람은 가고 있는 길을
알고 있다 말하죠

I’ll be there
함께 하나요
I’ll be there
I’ll be there

모두 흩어진 뒤에
다 아픈 거죠

그곳에선 함께 웃고 있죠
I’ll be there
See you again

Korean Tofu Stew

I got Korean silken tofu at the Korean culture festival the other week.
And so we made Korean tofu stew the other day.
It's one of my fave dishes, and can come in so many varieties.
My hubby loves the plain one while I like to mix things into mine..e.g. dumplings.
It was truly delicious and I can recommend this dish for both vegetarians and meat lovers as you can add meat into it as you wish.

Anyone wondered about the difference between J and K beauty?
As most think...for everything, Japan and Korea are "almost" the same.
But if you really know Japan and Korea you know it's not!

Please take a look at this video to see the similarities and the differences!

Last weekend my friend and I hit town.
And one of the outdoor stores had a big sale. One item on this sale as Kånken.
I have wanted one for quite some time but as you know...they never go on sale and as a Swede you can get them whenever. Meaning no purchase until now!
I found this one, the black on black! This is the version my hubby and I had eyed for some time and said if we are to buy one, this is it!
We got it 20% off which is more or less what foreigners get as taxfree, consider we cannot get taxfree being Swedes this was a great deal!
When travelling/out for a day, a backpack is great to have and this Kånken is all about Swedish culture although it has become a worldwide brand and icon.

Extremely happy and we have already used it ^^

Vad har Sverige kommit till?

Valet 2018 är nära, ett mycket spännande val.
Det finns mycket som skrämmer mig om jag ska vara ärlig.
Men det finns lika mycket som skrämmer mig gällande alla svenskar som våra politiker.

I Sverige idag kan man inte säga till någon utan att bli kallad rasist?
I Sverige kan man inte gå till kyrkan, mosken eller tempel utan att någon stirrar på en om man är fanatisk?
I Sverige är vi duktiga på att ducka och gömma oss från det så kallade okända.

Vad har hänt?
När jag var liten var det inte så här. Visst vi kanske har fått fler invandrare till Sverige men Sverige är ett öppet land så varför skulle inte människor från andra länder inte vilja ta sig hit?

Kan vi ta ett steg tillbaka och se på våra medmänniskor som medmänniskor och vänner oavsett hudfärg, språk, religion eller kultur.
Vi bor tillsammas, jobbar tillsammas och umgås tillsammasn - det är alla vi formar vårt Sverige.

Sverige är byggt på traditioner som skapat vårt land till det fantastiska land Sverige är!
Låt oss fortsätta bygga det som en, inte som vi och dem!

RETURN TO TIFFANY® Mini Double Heart Tag Pendant

For my birthday my hubby gifted me with this.
I love it, I wanted a simple yet elegant necklace for a long time.
Although this item is one of the most affordable from the Tiffany store, it's just PERFECT!
It can be used for everyday, parties or special occasions.
I love the Tiffany colour and the size.
It's everything I wanted in a necklace!

Inspired by the iconic key ring first introduced in 1969, the Return to Tiffany collection is a classic reinvented. A delicate duo of engraved tags on a simple link chain exudes sophistication and elegance.

  • Sterling silver with Tiffany Blue® enamel finish
  • On an 18" chain
  • Instantly recognizable, the signature Tiffany Blue® hue of this design’s enamel finish has been as iconic as the brand itself since its founding in 1837

Beautiful Berlin

We really enjoyed Berlin.
Although it felt big, at the same time it also felt small.
We walked a lot, we took various trains a lot..
We ate a lot and we saw a lot!

Can truly recommend a visit to the German Capital!

Dada Falafel

Last week in Berlin we went for lunch at Dada Falafel, one of the most popular places it seems!
It took more than 30 min to get the food, but the wait was well worth it!
The food is cheap consider what you get. You can do take out or sit in/outside.

It's well worth a stop if you go to Berlin!!

Tiffany CO

Who doesn't love Tiffany CO?
For some reason I haven't bought anything before, then again it's not cheap.
Just to think about the brand I feel poor..haha
Most thinks of engagement rings etc. 
But they also have the every day jewelry. Which I need!
Or the more simple that can be used for the occasion but not over the top but still top ^^

I grabbed two items, earrings and necklace.
As my b-day is coming up, tomorrow actually I got my hubby to pay for one item.
So happy!!
I cannot wait to us them!

Tim Hortons in US

If you have ever been to Canada you know what Tim is.
I was sooooooo surprised when I was told they had a location close to our US office.
I got my colleague to drive me there twice during the stay!!
I also managed to get donuts and coffee.
I miss Canada so much! Especially Tim!

I need to plan a Canada trip!

Streets of NYC

I passed by this in NYC the other week.
What do you think? Agree? Disagree?

Thursday, 9 August 2018


One of my cravings have been cold Korean spicy noodles.
I grabbed a package in NYC.
And luckily I got my hubby to cook it. A perfect dish for the summer!

We also added some samgyupsal (pork belly).

Walking around NYC

Last week I had the chance to explore a bit of NYC.
I haven't been there for 4 years!
On Sunday morning due to all traffic sound I woke up early and decided for a morning walk.
I took the subway down to York Street and walk a few min.
Despite the early morning many people lined up to take photos.
I took a walk along the water before heading up to Brooklyn Bridge and then walking down to WTC.
It had all changed a bit since last time but still all felt and looked familiar.

Neogen Knit mask

I was not able to pick this one up in Korea last time.
But I found it in Germany the other month!
This face mask is not like any other sheet mask. This one is knitted!

1. it felt heavier on the skin
2. It's way bigger, even covers the neck!
3. It was drenched in all the goodies.

Sadly the pack only comes with one per pack and cost around 6 Euros!
Similar price as Korea.
I liked the feeling, I have hard mixed reviews, but I liked a lot. Still not sure how effective this one is compare to the regular sheet masks. I have read reviews but I didn't buy enough to be able to tell.
I bought one pink and one yellow, so far I have only tried the pink!

Sorry for the pics below but didn't want to show it all..haha

A fun mask to try, all the excess fluids can be spread on neck, arms etc!
Do not waste it.
if you have extra "dry masks" you can make a DIY sheet mask!

Who doesn't love Noodles?
Maybe not good for you but delicious... instant or fresh!!

Take a look at this video for more details of Korean noodles.
There are many more!!!!

Heading West again

I looked into my calendar and this year I have been travelling outside Sweden once a month since December. Both for work and pleasure... most for work I should add!

This time I'm heading West again for work. Not as West as before but still.
It'll a few very busy days!
I hope to have some time for shopping and sights ^^

Soon time to board.

Son & Park Beauty water

One of the most raved products in K-beauty.
The Son and Park Beauty water.

This product is a  multi-tasking toner and cleansing water. It is said that it creates a clean base for the next steps in your skincare and makeup routine. Besides from cleansing it also  mildly exfoliates with willow bark and papaya extract which help to sweep away dead skin cells, revealing brighter skin tone and smoother texture. Lavender water, rose water, and orange fruit extract impart a subtle hydration so your skin can be prepped to absorb the next skin care steps, while adding in a bit of moisture. The Beauty Water can be used in the morning to create the perfect canvas for makeup application, midday as a refresher, and night after cleansing to whisk away remaining impurities. The Beauty Water has a pH of 4.5, and it's paraben free.

My review, I love the texture and multi function.
I feel clean when using it. But lately I can see my pore clogs more than before.
It was a long time ago since I had this many black heads. Could also be because of the summer season - sunlight, sweat, sunscreen etc
I think I will need to use another toner and only use this to remove make up and impurities.

Förändra Vårdguiden

Jämfört med många svenskar så springer jag inte till vårdcentralen eller akuten för minsta lilla.
En människa har inte dött av en förkylning - bättre att hålla sig varm, dricka te, ta div receptfria läkemedel. Vid feber lika så.

För drygt en och en halv månad sedan drabbades jag av en mystisk förkylning och som vanligt stannade jag hemma o försökte kura mig på bästa sätt.
Men efter 10 dagar med intensiv slemhosta i 18 av 24 timmar så kände jag nehe inget blir bättre nu har jag gjort allt. Jag beslöt mig för att ringa vårdguiden för att ta reda på bästa sätt att träffa en läkare eftersom jag nu kämpat.

Jag ringde och till svar fick jag "Du kan dricka te med honung".
Jag svarade: Jo det är ju ett vanligt husmansknep, jag har både testat honung och citron men inget hjälper. Receptfri hostmedicin är som att dricka socker. Jag har druckit ljummet vatten, sovit högt med ben o huvud etc, men det blir bara värre.
Sjuksköterskan blev nästan på arg när jag sa att det måste finnas något annat, vad är bäst en vårdcentral eller närakut. Tonen i rösten blev irriterad och hon sa till mig "Att hosta 18 av 24 timmar är normalt! Du borde dricka te!"
Jag tänkte.. i vilken värld är det normalt och hur mycket mer te då?

Detta är inte första gången jag fått liknande svar, jag har inte ringt för samma orsak men svaren ger en inget mer än vad jag visste innan jag tog upp telefonen!

Denna gång slutade det med att jag själv bokade en tid på en närakut.
När jag kom in så sa läkaren..Jaha det är du som hostar så förfärligt. Hans rum låg allra längst bort från väntrummet men hade hört mig!
Han gjorde div tester inkl. blodprov. Han trodde jag hade lungeinflammation men testerna visade inget som tydde på det. Han skrev ut 2 olika mediciner till mig. En jättetrevlig läkare.

Han frågade varför jag inte kommit tidigare och ja sa att jag alltid försöker bli frisk på egen hand.
Med hans hjälp blev jag frisk på 3 dagar!!

Landstingen jag förstår att det inte alltid är lätt att ta samtal via telefon men något mer bör er telefonlinje kunna göra!
Idag fyller den inte den funktion som den ska och vissa får helt fel eller inga råd! Jag har uppfattat att den ska vara som ett första stopp för att motverka halva befolkningen ta sig till våra redan överbelastade vårdcentraler, akutmottagningar och sjukhus!

Staying at MBS

To get a room at Singapore's Marina Bay Sands you can book in many different ways.
We booked directly on their website, for us at least it was the best option.
Just a few days before our stay hubby and I decided to upgrade to another view from the room. It was the same price when we booked but since it was close to the stay it went up.
We booked Club King including Afternoon tea, evening beverage and canapes and breakfast.
We came early and decided to leave the bags then to walk around the area. We went to the lounge in tower one. We took a number and was served almost right away. The staff was very friendly and he asked us a few questions - why we were in SG, Been to MBS before, when our flight was...
Then he said "I'm upgrading you free of charge to a suit", "Your room is ready and can check in now no need to wait until 3pm", "I also added a late check out for tomorrow".
The he wrapped our receipt in a folder and gave us the keys. He asked if we wanted to take the luggage or have the staff to do it, however if we waited it'd take some time.
We rolled our luggage and headed straight up to our room, located on Floor 47!!

We opened the door and the curtains unfolded!
As we walked closer to the window this amazing view appeared in front of us

We walked into the second room and found these fellas on the bed.
And then we walked into the bathroom and found this amazing view!!!!

Such amazing room! The shower was huge as well, like a Sauna!!
We quickly undressed and put on Swimsuits and headed upstairs to the famous Infinity Pool, where we spent most time after check in.
We enjoyed lunch at the pool, later afternoon tea at the Club 55.
To cool down from the heat I went for some shopping in the mall downstairs while hubby went to the gym.
Afterwards we headed back to Club 55 for and evening beverages and canapes before going back up to the pool to enjoy the sunset. Like most other visitors. Still the pools weren't over crowded.
For dinner we decided on room service, with a huge selection!!

I really really want to go back there!
We had such an amazing time, it was pricey but worth it!

Thank you @MBS for the upgrade and great services!!
