Korean skincare products and fashion are my current obsessions. Living on a student's budget can be a bit challenging but that's mostly because I like to spoil myself with random purchases all the time. I know it's a bad habit but a girl's gotta do what a girl's gotta do.
Muji is one of my favorite stores to visit. I really like the theme and the atmosphere in their stores. All their items are really minimal and fairly reasonably priced considering the great quality of their products. My favorite section is visit is the stationary area. They have really nice pens, notebooks and other miscellaneous office supplies. Besides the stationary section, I also really like their skincare and snacks sections as well. They carry a decent range of skincare products that suit a number of different skintypes. As for the snacks, my favorites are the Yuzu candies and the marshmallows.
These are really helpful for me as a student. They are really inexpensive and come in such a huge pack which lasts for at least a couple years. The adhesive on the back makes it really handy as I can stick wherever. I use them to write down reminders for myself, for annotations and also as little study notes that I put around my room.
I was drawn to this product because of the cute packaging. It has a similar concept to the EOS lip balms but the formula of this product is much more moisturizing and lasts longer. It is very travel friendly and easy to reapply throughout the day. They don't really last that long (compared to the EOS one) as I went through one of these in a month. However, they are pretty inexpensive and really worth a try.
Really loved the colour range that this product comes in. It isn't drying at all and really great product at an affordable price. Depending on the shade that you get, they are fairly pigmented and lasts for quite a while (may need to reapply after a meal).
Really love this product. It is super moisturizing and leaves my lips feeling very soft. It is reasonably priced and a little goes a long way with this product. I have tried the other scents in this product line but this one is my favorite because of the slight pinkish tint that it leaves on your lips. My only complaint about this product is the tin that it comes in; I find it a bit unsanitary so if it came in a tube, I would love it way more.
One of my favorite lip balms. I've gone through so many of these already. They are fairly inexpensive, so I have one of these in each of my bags. They are great quality and really moisturizing on my lips. They come in a variety of scents and some of them are even tinted.
Just got my first pair of Toms this year and I'm really glad that I decided to give them a try. In the summers, I'm always in my Birkenstocks but my new Toms are really giving them a run for their money. Toms are a nice, casual pair of slip ons that go well with a lot of my outfits. They are travel friendly because they are cloth shoes and are really comfortable as well. I'm definitely considering getting a couple more pairs later on.
I used to love these when I was in elementary school but since then I've discovered a number of other lip balms that are much more effective. The baby lips lip balm has a sweet scent that isn't too overpowering, but the formulation isn't very moisturizing. They are fairly inexpensive but I think that it's a better idea to pay a couple extra dollars for a better quality lip balm.
Forever 21 has a large variety of items that are very inexpensive. It is perfect if you are into trends and fast fashion. My favorite section is the accessories section because they have a lot of cute chokers, hats, headbands etc. for a great price and you won't have to worry if they end up getting ruined. However, going into their stores can get a bit overwhelming because there are so many items everywhere, so I would suggest having something that you want in mind first before going into the store.
Zara carries a lot of trendy items that will be perfect for you if you are into fast-fashion. Their items are pretty pricy but are better quality than H&M and Forever 21 clothing. Their clothes are hit and miss, and I would recommend that you try on the pieces before buying them because they may look good online or on the rack but it may not be suited to your body type.
