Now that 2022 has officially come to an end, I have something a little different to write.
Last year was, honestly, a very tiring year. Although things can be glamorous and fun on the outside, being a content creator is a lot of work and a big time commitment. Lately I’ve begin to wonder whether it’s worth it – so decided to highlight some of my favourite content and products from this year, partly to showcase some great products and partly to reminds myself of how far I have come.
So read on for some of my favourites, and little personal experiences that I wasn’t able to include in my caption and posts.

When it comes to k-beauty make up, I can be picky – so I’m super loyal to brands I love. I’ve been obsessed with Romand (stylised as Rom&nd) for the past few years: they have gorgeous packaging, top notch formulations and some of the best colour selections, so I’m always recommending them! Today, I’ll be sharing with you a special selection from their core range – everything you need for an everyday, Korean make up inspired look.

Many years ago I was super fixated on making sure that my shampoo was ‘SLS Free’, as I had heard that sulphates were overly drying and stripping too much moisture. I hadn’t given it a second thought since then, so I was really surprised when The Ordinary not only launched a shampoo with sulphates, but also led with that as the main ingredient! 🤯
The Ordinary believes that removing sulphates is simply a trend and, as always, their brand is about evidence-based formulations, not just following the crowd. Rather than removing sulphates, they researched them and broke the ingredient down to its essential levels, giving all the cleansing benefits of the ingredient, as well as further long-term benefits.
If you’re Australian and a fan of Japanese Beauty, then you would be all too familiar with how difficult it is to get these products without going through personal shoppers, foreign websites and making to make the trip to Japan yourself! Thankfully though, a lot of these wishes were answered with W Cosmetics. I’ve worked with them a few times already and, whilst they have Korean products too, I’m always especially impressed with their J-beauty product range.
They recently sent over a selection of new releases from Canmake which I’ve posted about on Instagram, but I couldn’t help but make this post as well – just in case there’s someone out there who also have no idea where to buy these! Read on to see what I got, as well as links to buy them straight from W Cosmetics. They have stores in Australia and also free shipping for orders over AUD$99.

The Korean beauty industry has been booming for years, so it’s not surprise that it’s also super saturated with numerous brands and products. When people first delve into k-beauty, I find that most are only aware of larger brands (mostly owned by parent companies like Amore Pacific). However, this is one of those fields where indie brands aren’t exactly falling behind – in fact, a lot of the time they are actually doing better!
So then comes to question – where should you start? Today I’ll be sharing five of my all-time favourite k-beauty skincare products. These are all products that I’ve used over and over again, so I would definitely recommend checking them out.
