LAST WEEK, BIORÉ SKINCARE INVITED ME TO BREAKFAST WITH THEIR BRAND AMBASSADOR, SHAY MITCHELL AT THE MOST SURREAL LOCATION IN SOCAL, NAMELY THE WILDLIFE WAYSTATION FACILITY.
The Wildlife Waystation is located on 160 acres in the Angeles National Forest in Southern California. The mission of the Wildlife Waystation is to rescue and provide sanctuary for native and exotic wildlife. So no, it’s not a zoo. To celebrate the launch of the Bioré Limited Edition Deep Cleansing Pore Strips (in the photos above) in fun animal prints – Bioré has given a donation to the Wildlife Waystation to support their mission to help the wildlife, which will go towards the care of their eight leopards, bobcats, mountain lions for a full year.
I literally have memories of using Bioré pore strips when I was ten years old- because as you guys probably know by now, my main struggle with skin is an oily t-zone, closed comedones, whiteheads & blackheads. The pore strips are perfect because they act like a magnet and draw out dirt oil and blackheads. Plus, the new animal print pore strips are super fun to use cute and and are so fun to take pictures in. I know first hand that skin issues are not enjoyable, but manageable with die-hard commitment to a weekly regimen! Now that I understand how important skincare is, I wouldn’t dare go a week without using one of these. Better safe than sorry, as they say.
A couple weeks ago, I travelled to one of my favorite places on planet Earth… Greece.
I cannot even begin to tell you how happy my soul is in this magical country. The sun, the air, the color of the sea, the food. THE PEOPLE. Greek people have this soul to them that is so free, so accommodating and caring, genuine, loving, and wild. Visit Greece when you feel like you want to know what it’s like to be alive.
I was lucky enough to be invited by Folli Follie and Hotel Brain to experience a Greek Island hopping trip. We basically started every morning on a helicopter, flew to an island, stayed at ridiculously beautiful hotels (My Mykonos Retreat was my favorite), ate fresh Greek cuisine, slept the night, and then repeat. Basically, I am one lucky girl. And I do not take it for granted.
I also visited Folli Follie’s newly renovated store in Athens (by the way, Athens was a dream for me since high school), and fell in love with their watches. Seriously check them out if you’re into bracelet stacking, or vintage-looking watches. They’re a dream.
Also, if you want more Greek Goodness, check out this video I made about the trip:
Folli Follie is also holding a contest you guys can enter, called “Travel The Fashionistas Way”, the winner will receive air tickets and 3-nights stay at a Lyo, a premium hotel in Mykonos, plus 1 statement piece from their Mykonos store.
There’s also extra prizes of Folli Follie statement pieces to be offered locally.
