Tony Moly: K-Town Beauty

As my obsession with foreign beauty products continues, this past weekend I finally made it to Tony Moly’s K-Town location. I’ve been meaning to hit this store for some time now, but always had something holding me up. After a few weeks of planning to go, I actually went this past weekend. I wasn’t sure what to expect or what I wanted to get —knowing that they sell some of the brand’s products at Urban Outfitters, it was important to me that I purchase something unique to the store. After debating for a half an hour over a few things in the very tiny store, I decided on the following:

  • Tomatox Magic Massage Pack-  this is basically a brightening/clarifying mask
  •  Changing Magic Mask (sheet box)- this pack comes with 7 masks




Isn’t the packaging amazing? I tried the mask last night and I really liked it. Not sure about the brightening effect, since I’m starting with a very fair base (read-super pale). It did leave my skin feeling firm, and that’s reason enough to keep using this product.



Um…can we please talk about what this says? Lost in translation….?


I haven’t tried any of the sheet masks yet but it comes in the following varieties:

  • Black Pearl
  • Hyaluronic Acid
  • Red Wine
  • Tea Tree
  • Green Apple
  • Royal Jelly
  • Brid’s Nest

Should be interesting! Do you have any favorite Tony Moly products?

The Office

Things a girl must know when there is a casual dress code at the office.

There are two sides to every coin, I could be working at a very conservative firm who requires business suits every day. But fortunately, that’s not the case. My work environment is casual and I was told I can wear almost anything I want, including jeans. This is also problematic because how do I know what is appropriate and what is “too casual?” SoI wanted to impart my wisdom on what I’ve seen other women wear and add in my own opinion.

  1. Black is always a safe bet for a bottom, be it a skirt or pant.
  2. Wedges are a must.  If you don’t wear them to the office, bring them to change into. No shame in that.
  3. Colored pants are ok. I’m talking red, blue, mint, etc. Embrace the trend.
  4. Don’t draw attention to yourself with an over-the-top outfit. You’ll only feel embarrassed.
  5. There is going to be people at your office who dress very well, and there are going to be people who dress very bad. Stick to your own style and you’ll be fine.

Just some examples of what I was talking about. I’ll definitely keep adding tips and insight to the list. After all, you learn something new about fashion every day, especially at the office.
