It’s been oppressively hot this week.
To help soothe my hot and bothered skin, I used this deliciously cooling Rice Paper Mask.
And it was exactly what my skin needed to be happy!
The mask is by Tony Moly, a South Korean cosmetics which recently just opened a store in Japantown, San Francisco.
I’m not all that crazy about asian beauty brands but I am a big fan of paper masks.
I’ve been growing out my hair for years. Years.
It’s been growing at an excruciatingly slow snail’s pace.
I just want to see how long I can grow out my hair. At this point, it’s already the longest it’s ever been in my life.
And yet, I want it to be even longer.
I got this parasol from guess where?!
A country where people are obsessed more with the idea of staying pale than any other insidious effects of the sun… Japan of course!
This parasol affords UVA/UVB protection. Because not all umbrellas do that?
Anyway I love this parasol because it is tiny and collapses to fit in the side of my bookbag.
