Hi there, welcome! I figured my first post should let you know about me. I’m Valerie. I’m 32, I live in Upstate NY, I have a pet chinchilla named Elora Dannon. I have oily/acne prone skin. Though, my face at times has bursts of random dry, flaky patches.

I got into taking better care of my skin about a year ago. I was now firmly in my 30’s and wanted to make sure I aged a gracefully as possible. This past spring, I fell into K beauty and everything changed. I kept using products too heavy got my oily skin and Korean beauty offers products for oily skin that moisturizes and helps control oil. *insert angels singing here*

I am still learning my way, I am also looking to meet others in the beauty community that can help me reach my skin goals. I hope I can also be of help to anyone else that’s new to the game and trying to find their right products.

Other little random bits about me: I am obsessed with movies, music and books. I will give pretty much anything and everything a try, so I have very diverse tastes in all 3 categories. This also helps me in my weekly trivia outings in a local bar with my friends. My nickname with them is IMDB. I also really love history, especially WWII and the American Revolution. Also, finally, I am a fairly big nerd. Comic books, comic movies, Dr. Who, Game of Thrones, Daredevil, Star Wars, Star Trek, cult horror. I’m so there. I am also recently obsessed with also having my nails done at all times. Polish or Jamberry wraps, I prefer only 5 free polishes.

I hope you’ll join me on this adventure! Let’s get started!
