Hello world!

The title of the post is a generic one provided by WordPress, but it’s fitting so I will keep it.

I’ve been writing beauty and travel reviews elsewhere, but recently thought I’d be nice to have my own. There is already a slew of great beauty and nail blogs, many of which I’ve been regularly reading for the past few years (look for blogroll in the sidebar soon). So why another? Well, for one I think there is still a niche for an Asian perspective: a humid and hot clime is the true testing ground of good cosmetics. I also do¬† good amount of travel, often on the not so beaten path and based on experience, there is not enough info in English for this part of the region. Finally, I’m a researcher in my other life, so i look at jargons with a critical mind, and attack hype with zeal.
