Amazing Ladder Beach in Saipan

Hi everyone! I will post a nice cafe review tonight so while waiting, why don't you read this post first? (^_^) It will be a quite short one so sit back and enjoy! Ok? =D Yes, as the title mention, 2 weeks ago I had the opportunity to travel to the Saipan. Saipan is a tropical island located in the Pacific Ocean. It is near Guam and is part of the United States. I used to travel a lot when the weather are warm, but when the weather is cold, I becoming one lazy bear. (*_*) hahah. Well, enough with my babbling! I will show you my favorite beach in Saipan, it's called "Ladder Beach".

Why it's called Ladder Beach? Because sometime ago you would need a ladder (or rope) to get down to the beach below, which is a little cove, with two large caves. Ladder Beach, a private beach used by the American air crews once they secured the island. Ladder Beach is located 9.1km south-west from the center of Saipan island in Saipan geographic region.

Picture of blue sky and Ladder Beach view took from the airplane.

I feel like I could fly with the wings of an angel on the sky. lol

It's a beautiful beach, I spend my whole day at the Ladder Beach. It's a nice relaxing area to chill! The weather was extremely nice, it was a bright sunny day which I love it!

 The ocean is light blue and the water is pristine. The beach is a little rocky, but the rocks are really coral that has been washed onto the shore. Guys, I have good news, you no longer need a ladder or rope to get down since steps have been constructed. =D

Ladder Beach has always attracted locals and tourists because of its pristine waters that are perfect for snorkeling. The caves by the beach also provide a perfect shelter, and ideal for picnics. It's raw natural beauty and relative seclusion are fantastic!

The views are amazing from the top!

Simply lovely views and really worth the walk.

There is nothing more unique and breathtaking than a Ladder Beach view!

Trees are everywhere which makes it free and very refreshing!

You can also see this clear blue color in the water. Most of that is caused by the surface reflection of the blue sky, but natural bodies of water often appear blue on their own.

You should come here, seriously! You won't regret it! This beach is damn awesome for fun days out that aren't ruined by tourism as it is simply a lovely beach.

I love watching the sunset! The sunset on the Ladder Beach in Saipan was gorgeous. 

I kept saying WOW and DAEBAK (대박)! The Korean word 대박 means awesome. Anyway, the sunset was truly breath taking and so blessed to experience that sunset.

Ladder Beach, Obyan, Saipan 96950, CNMI

Well, anyway that's it! I hope you enjoy this blog post and see you in the next blog post! Don't forget to follow my blog if you love what you are reading! Bye~~!!! ^_^

Korean Summer Fashion Styles For Men

Hello guys! I knew that I have been away for a while, anyway I'm sorry! My DSLR camera driving me nuts these past few days and my days just wasted money for repairing my camera! I've finally decided to sell my DSLR camera, since my boyfriend bought me a new mirrorless camera for me. To be honest, I don't really want to sell this DSLR camera because it's my present from my father and I haven't used it for so long (probably around 5 years and so).
Ok, let's move on to today's blog post! Today will be a very short post with a lots of photos, so stay tuned okay? =D Actually, nothing special in particular but since it's spring but it's already so hot where I live. Me and my boyfriend decided to have a little more refreshing at Boramae Park. Oh anyway! I'm happy, I will returned back to San Diego by the end of June because I can't stand summer and hot weather after all. >.< 

He was hungry, and he bought the Hotteok (호떡). Hotteok is a variety of filled Korean pancake, and is a popular street food of Korea.

Sometimes I can't understand this guy what he is actually doing! lol

OMG! He was still hungry and he bought the corn! I have also tried the corn and it was so delicious! I love it!

Well, he finished eating corn. Before moving to a different place, let's strike a pose first! =D

We decided to take a walk to this place called "Boramae Safety Center (보라매안전체험관)". Located inside Boramae Park, the Boramae Safety Experience Center operates an experience program focused on safety measures in the event of disaster. With a 'Safe Seoul' vision, the center teaches safety awareness and safety measures through simulation-based training in how to handle disasters, earthquakes, windstorms, fire and traffic accidents. The center also operates a program to learn about first aid such as CPR and the use of various safety facilities and equipment. At this safety experience center, visitors can also listen to real-life stores from fire officers and participate in the programs to learn more about safety.

We were so tired, me and my boyfriend decided to go back to home. But, before we go back let me take his photos while waiting for the bus! =D

Outfits of the day!
For young men, style fashion men with a long shirt with short pant are the best suit for spring.

Shirt by Uniqlo
Short pants by Polham

Shoes by Puma

Backpack by Royal Polo

Well, I hope you guys have fun reading this post! How did you guys spend your weekend? Most of the times I just go back to the home and doing my blog or homework but it feels good to go out sometimes, have a chat with oppa and worry about nothing. lol Oh an by the way the next post will be about a amazing coffee shop that I found really interesting to share with you guys! So stay tuned! Bye~~ ^^

Innisfree Smart Makeup Blender and Moisture

Hi guys! As I've promised in my post before, new makeup review post for you guys today, and I will review Innisfree Smart Makeup Blender + Moisture (스마트 메이크업블렌더+모이스처). Are you excited? Let's get started shall we? 

I love their packaging concept as well as the design of their products and the overall products in general. It comes in a small tube, it has a white cap and the size of the tube is quite small with 15ml and you can control the amount of the product to use. The tiny tube makes it convenient for us to carry it in your bag incase we want to pack it for traveling as its very lightweight.

The backside of the tube has some Korean description on it.

They always use recycled packaging, and it's also printed with soy ink. As you can see this product claims are printed on the right side: lasting moisture, radiant glow, and smooth fit, and on the left side: Jeju mineral powder, and Jeju green tea.

Innisfree Smart Makeup Blender (Moisture) Description:
A moisture rich blender formulated to replenish moisture to create a healthy and radiant complexion.

Price:
6,000 KRW (Kinda expensive considering the amount of product you get).

Directions:
Blend smart blender and foundation (or BB cream) in ratio of 1:2. Apply onto entire face and gently pat to finish. Reapply a minute amount onto areas where further moisture is desired.

Ingredients:
Water, Hydrogenated Polyisobutene, Butylene Glycol, Hydrogenated Polydecene, Cyclopentasiloxane, Glycerin, Ethylene/Propylene Copolymer, Polyglyceryl-4 Diisostearate/Polyhydroxystearate/Sebacate,Dimethicone/Vinyl Dimethicone Crosspolymer, Camellia Japonica Leaf Extract, Citrus Unshiu Peel Extract, Camellia Sinensis Leaf Extract, Opuntia Coccinellifera Fruit Extract, Orchid Extract, Mineral Salts, Cyclohexasiloxane, Hydroxyethyl Acrylate/Sodium Acryloyldimethyl Taurate Copolymer, Sodium Acrylate/Sodium Acryloyldimethyl Taurate Copolymer, Disteardimonium Hectorite, Isohexadecane, Tocopheryl Acetate, Polysorbate 80, Glyceryl Acrylate/Acrylic Acid Copolymer, Triethyl Citrate, Disodium EDTA, Phenoxyethanol, Caprylyl Glycol, Ethylhexylglycerin,1,2-Hexanediol, Fragrance.


I chose makeup blender + moisture as my skin is dry, and I also chose this to smooth out my skin texture for a soft, and supple.

This is one drop of the smart makeup blender, and the cream isn't runny and is not thick too (almost like water). The Innisfree smart makeup blender + moisture cream has a white color and has a fresh floral scent that isn't too strong, and has a light consistency.

When spread it turn white to transparent, moist, smooth, and it is not sticky at all, but leaves the skin with a nice glow. The smart makeup blender applies smoothly and it absorbs quickly into my skin making it feel completely hydrated. 

My skin before and after applying the smart makeup blender + moisture!
Before I put on my skin, I'm sure you see the difference right?
Fully blended! I have been using this cream for 3 weeks, and my skin texture felt instantly more smoother and felt softer. This smart makeup blender is a really good moisturizer especially for dry skin types, and it didn't make me break out which is great for those who have problem skin. It makes my skin glow, healthier looking, and really gives off a shiny and dewy look. Does my skin looks shiny and dewy?

You can also mix your BB cream with your smart makeup blender.
This smart makeup blender + moisture really gives me control when I blend my BB cream, and I absolutely love it. This has been very useful and it is exactly what I have needed. I use it all the time!

This is how it should look like! You can see the difference, right? 
My skin looks so much better than before. I have found it makes my skin very supple, more glowing, softer, clearer and brighter.
Overall, the smart makeup blender itself is very moisturising, and what I like though is that it does a nice job in covering the dry patches on my face, and it doesn't make my face too greasy and sticky but it gives a lot of skin benefit because I don't really use moisturiser daily, and gives my skin texture felt instantly more smoother and felt softer. 

Are any of you trying smart makeup blender + moisture now? What do you think? Do you want to purchase this product? Please share your experience in the comments below. 

Well, that's it for the review! I hope you enjoy this review and see you guys real soon in my next post! Bye~~~
