    What I bought this week: MOTHER crochet top, because…

    Item(s): MOTHER The Open Back Tank Top Reason: … is this enough of a reason? View this post on Instagram A post shared by Taylor Swift (@taylorswift) Seriously though, I love MOTHER denim and the 1970’s vibe of Taylor Swift’s new album, Midnights. … I also have a feeling that I am going to love […]

  • What I bought this week: We Are Doré

    What I bought this week: We Are Doré

    Item(s): Le Trio from We Are Doré, which includes… Le Baume, Le Cleanser, and La Crème. Reason: I enjoyed Garance Doré’s blog (when it was a thing) and her book (still in publication). … and I also really enjoy French pharmacies. It’s true — if I’m in France or a French off-shoot, like St. Barths, […]

  • What I bought this week: Guppyfriend Washing Bag

    What I bought this week: Guppyfriend Washing Bag

    Item(s): Guppyfriend Washing Bag Reason: … because microplastics are in synthetic clothing and that’s not OK! Seriously, I didn’t know this before. … but, it’s true. When you throw synthetic fibre clothing in the washing machine (at whatever temperature) microplastics/fibres are released and then the grey water from our washing machines basically is drained into […]

  • What I bought this week: Maelove Skincare

    What I bought this week: Maelove Skincare

    Item(s): Maelove The One Cream and Glow Maker Antioxidant Serum. Reason: I heard that Maelove’s Glow Maker serum is a solid dupe for Skinceuticals Vitamin C serum (~$170 USD) and since I’m at the bottom of the Skinceuticals bottle, I figured I should try Maelove’s next. Similar to Skinceuticals’ serum, I’m not entirely sure that […]

  • What I bought this week: (Boring) Goop order

    What I bought this week: (Boring) Goop order

    Item(s): Jillian Dempsey eye masks, goop Beauty “The Martini” Emotional Detox Bath Soak (not pictured), and a Gwyneth Paltrow x Copper Fit Knee Compression Sleeve. Reason: This is my third time buying Jillian Dempsey eye masks. At $75 USD, they’re kinda expensive for a set of 10… but, they really brighten your under-eye area. To […]

  • What I bought this week: Byredo Roll-On Perfume Oil

    What I bought this week: Byredo Roll-On Perfume Oil

    Item(s): Byredo Roll-On Perfume Oil in Mojave Ghost… plus, I asked for a free sample of Bal D’Afrique. Reason: Byredo’s Tree House candle is in my top 3 re-buy candles. It makes sense (scents?), since Byredo began their brand with the best way for us to literally burn our money — candles. Tree House is […]

  • What I bought this week: Skincare and clothing care

    What I bought this week: Skincare and clothing care

    Item(s): Charlotte Tilbury Cryo Recovery Mask, Sulwhasoo Clarifying mask, and The Laundress Delicate Wash Reason: Listen, after my Clarisonic face cleaner, I was like “never am I getting sucked into a trendy skincare device again.” However, this Charlotte Tilbury Cryo mask is $55, so it doesn’t really break the bank. … at the same time, […]

  • What I bought this week: The Row and those awful flip flops

    What I bought this week: The Row and those awful flip flops

    Item(s): The Row “Biggins” camisole and Tkees Liner flip flops Reason: “But Yuki, aren’t you saving for that Burberry trench coat.” Yes, yes I am. … however, my SA texted me that they received the 22S Chanel heart bag and I did not buy it, so I saved like (ok, exactly) $5,697.75 USD there (edit: […]

  • What I bought this week: New glasses

    What I bought this week: New glasses

    Item(s): Airframe Bold Oversized eye glasses, in Crystal, from Jins. Reason: The thing is, designer frames are nice and all, but getting your lenses put in after they arrive is such a hassle and more expensive — like, I want them to come at that price with my prescription in them. So, I prefer buying […]

  • What I bought this week: Isabel Marant Flessy dress

    What I bought this week: Isabel Marant Flessy dress

    Item(s): Isabel Marant Flessy dress via Yoox Reason: Now, I’m not 100% sure if I will attend any weddings this summer but, just in case, this Isabel Marant Flessy dress is perfect for them. You can dress it up or dress it down and wear it over & over again. The best part of it […]
