If you follow me on Instagram @xlicious, you’ll know that I recently went to Oahu, Hawaii. The weather was perfect and it wasn’t too crowded.

Surprisingly, my favorite days during our vacation were the ones that we did absolutely nothing but lounge around and be beach bums! Don’t get me wrong, I love a good scuba diving, but activities like those can end up being very draining.

On my lazy vacation days, I like to sit back and relax on our hotel balcony facing the beautiful ocean coast. With me outside is my kindle (I’m currently reading Game of Thrones A Feast for Crows), Kat Von D Lipstick, Nexus 5x, Kate Spade aviators, and scarf from The Scarf Shop.

This beautiful twill silk square scarf in black & yellow literally followed me around everywhere in Oahu! I love how soft and smooth it feels on my skin. Plus, the colors are very sophisticated and has an upscale vibe, I highly recommend.

On the beach, I usually bring out my backpack to keep a change of clothes and small odds n’ ends. Don’t forget your waterproof sun block and something yummy to eat, hehe. These Hawaiian Sweet Potato and Taro Chips were the shizzz, I could eat them all day every day.

Look how gorgeous the Kailua Beach is in Oahu. The definition of white sand beach and crystal clear blue waters. Take me back already!

My husband and I tried doing something very silly while we were out on this beach. We actually tried swimming out to the island that you see in the photo below. I think we got about 1/3 of the way out, and I got scared and told him that I wanted to turn around. Best idea ever.

As the sun began to set, we took a stroll down Lanikai Beach. If you can believe it, Lanikai is even more beautiful than Kailua, especially at sunset. I’ll never forget the cotton candy colored sky reflecting upon the ocean. Such a dream.

Have a gorgeous weekend everyone! Take care.

Ellen Panda Brown Circle Lens Review

Today we’re going to have a look at Ellen Panda Brown circle lens (available for $18 from Klenspop.com). These lens were sponsored to me by Klenspop.com. First thing I noticed when I received my shipment, is that Klenspop updated their packaging! I like it, and the art work is really cute. The circle lens came securely placed inside a plastic bed container, ensuring that it doesn’t get damaged within the box. Inside the box are also free contact lens case and tongs. Another new feature that I found is this double sided flyer with detailed instructions on how to wear and take care of your lens. It’s actually quite detailed and very good for first time users. General information on the lens: Brand: Lenspop Diameter: 14.8mm Graphic Diameter: 14.5mm Base Curve: 8.6mm Water Content: 38% Life Span: 6 months (Max)** Country of Origin: Korea Colors Available: Brown (4 color), Blue (4 color) ** I recommend keeping lens for only 3-4 months max Now that we have the Ellen Panda Brown circle lens out of their glass containers, let’s have a closer look at the design. If you haven’t noticed already, there are 4 different tones of brown — dark brown, medium brown, faint orange and yellow. The overall tone

Shu Uemura Skin Purifier Porefinist Gentle Foaming Cleansing Water Review Shorts

I’ve been really into foam face wash this past year. It’s the most gentle type of face wash for your skin, making it the best option. So far, Shu Uemura Porefinist Gentle Foaming Cleansing Water is the best that I’ve found. What makes this foam cleanser awesome is that: It comes out foamy and stays foamy! when you work the foam cleanser into your face, it lathers and feels creamy the foam doesn’t go away after your start massaging it into your face like other products do a little goes a long way, just one full pump needed! leaves the skin feeling and looking clean without any residue not drying has a light smell that isn’t overbearing easy to rinse off works great for makeup remover when paired with a good cleansing oil cleanser lasted about 5 months with daily usage The only downside is that it costs $40, which is on the steep side… Ahhh, what to do what to do. It really is one of the best that I’ve tried, even in comparison to the Japanese market brands. Let me know if you have any other recommendations or what you think of Shu Uemura Porefinist Gentle Foaming Cleansing Water.

EuroTrip 2015 - Rome (3 of 6)

We arrived in Rome on November 19, 2015 at 8:30pm. It was a journey to get to our hotel. From the airport, we had to do the usual — pick up our luggages, exchange money, figure out transport, buy bus tickets, find the bus to central station, walk to the subway, figure our way over to the hotel… and of course, we exited one exit too early, and ended up walking for a bit with our luggage. What we should have done was just take a taxi instead of the subway after the bus ride. After all that, we finally got to our hotel, C’est la Vie, just a little past 11pm. Turns out that the place we were staying at was more of an Bed & Breakfast sort of spot, which was nice. Our hosts were very kind and provided us with lots of useful information. Plus they had a stocked kitchen with drinks and snacks for us, which was really great. Being that it was late, we choose to not go out our first night in Rome, but instead to rest up so that we could get an early start the next morning. Bright and early the next

Corgi Corner: You Caught Me

Oh, Dumpling. I always catch her sleeping upside-down like this, and it makes me warm and fuzzy inside. You can’t help but smile at a corgi laying with their belly up. Careful now, the gif is cute but it may also cause nausea. Don’t stay I didn’t warn you. Anyways, have a happy hump day! xoxo Sarah
