Hello and welcome to my blog in 2021!

JOLSE K-Beauty Unboxing & Review #3

Jolse haul review

Hello and welcome ❤️ Finally I got to ordering and reviewing my third order from Jolse – a K-beauty online store that ships directly from Seoul. For months shipping was way too expensive (due to the global pandemic), but I was able to place an order during the Black Friday sale. It took Jolse 2 weeks to ship my order, but I received it within 3 days by DHL. Let’s see what I got 😊

Can Gamines Have Long Hair? w/Examples

Can Kibbe Gamines have long hair and is it a safe bet to cut hair short?

Hello and welcome ❤️ This post is my take on the hair length for Gamines in the Kibbe system. In the 1987 book Metamorphosis David Kibbe clearly states that long hair doesn’t work on Gamines. In this post I want to investigate why. Using verified examples I will also illustrate that Gamines shouldn’t just cut their hair short as soon as they find out their image identity and that the choice of hairstyle is as important as length.

How I Actually Use Kibbe’s System for Head-To-Toe Looks (updated)

Is Kibbe’s system still usable if the book was published three decades ago? I say ‘yes’! This post is ultimately about how I apply this system – not ‘how to dress if you’re a Soft Gamine’.

Greetings ❤️ This is an updated follow-up post to how I got to know and love Kibbe’s Metamorphosis. I am a Soft Gamine, but this post will probably be relevant for anyone interested in Kibbe’s system because I’ll share how I actually apply it. To me, the main thing about applying Kibbe’s system in practice is understanding my Yin-Yang balance. I don’t follow book recommendations to every last detail, however I find them extremely helpful regardless. Also, this post is ultimately about how I apply this system – not ‘how to dress if you’re a Soft Gamine’. Let’s begin!

Soft Natural vs Romantic in Kibbe System w/Examples

Hello and welcome ❤️ Image identities in Kibbe system don’t overlap – they are like planets in the Solar System and each one is absolutely unique and independent from others, but still exists by the same rules. The whole idea of comparing two image identities thereby can be considered nonsensical because how can one compare incomparable things? That being said, I think looking at two image identities side by side can be very useful in the process of learning them, in order to understand them. So consider this kind of post as not a comparison, but merely a closer look at these image identities that can be often confused because they share several important features. In my previous post I analyzed Soft Gamine vs Theatrical Romantic, now Soft Natural vs Romantic.

MISSHA Premium Cica Aloe Soothing Gel Review & Ingredients

Aloe vera gel is a staple in my skincare/makeup bag at all times. It saved my skin countless times and, even though I have aloe vera plants at home, I always have a jar of aloe vera gel on hand. I bought this gel to replace my Missha Premium Aloe Soothing Gel that I reviewed earlier and, low and behold, liked this one even more.
