I used to tell people that dessert was my favourite meal of the day but with three hour classes that extend through lunch time I'd like to revise that statement and say that snack time is my new favourite meal of the day because it lasts pretty much all day long.
And the only thing better than snack time... is snack time with international goodies! I was sent a Taiwan Treat Box to review, which has been helping me to step up my in-class snack game. Taiwan Treat is a monthly snack subscription box that aims to deliver authentic Taiwanese snacks, candies, treats, chips, ramen noodles, coffees and teas from Taiwan to your front door.

What does sunshine smell like? How about clean skin? I mean... aromas like waffles and gingerbread are pretty distinctive scent memories. But it's not like I can go up to the sun and smell it... nor can I really smell myself when I'm clean (the only thing I can smell is LUSH).
In an attempt to bottle the scents of Sunshine and Clean Skin as fragrances, Demeter has paired the two in their Foolproof Blending Duo Kit ($35), which also includes 4 droppers, a funnel and an extra bottle so you can blend the two together for a DIY scent.

Netflix all night, class the next morning necessity #1... a really good under eye concealer. Let's be real. I haven't had time to watch Netflix all night. It's more like study all night and cry.
New to me and just launched this month is the Make Up For Ever Ultra HD Concealer ($32) in Y23 which I've been testing a little less than a week. Make Up For Ever says that it's a groundbreaking formulation that visibly illuminates, conceals dark under eye circles and seamlessly blurs fine lines and wrinkles. Sounds like the under eye equivalent to a cup of coffee.
In addition to reversing sleep deprivation, the Make Up For Ever Ultra HD Concealer is a part of the Ultra HD line, which means that it's designed to look flawless under the clarity and high resolution of 4k HD video technology.
