Seattle Meetup

Today I wanted to post about the Reddit Asian Beauty Meetup in Seattle that I attended a little over a week ago. I drove up to the Seattle area to spend a much needed weekend getaway. I also got to meet some incredible ladies!

If you are unfamiliar with Reddit, it is a forum site and one of the sub's is devoted to all things Asian Beauty. It is a fantastic community full of great information and support. The community is a lot of fun so if you love asian beauty products, I would highly recommend you check it out here.

The group decided to meet up at the Hmart in the suburb of Lynwood just north of Seattle. This Hmart is pretty big and has an Amore Pacific store, a store devoted to brands under the LG umbrella and has a super cute bookstore. We also went to the Daiso store across the street located in the Alderwood Mall.

Here are a few pictures of the Amore Pacific store!

 We were all super excited to pose for selfies with the giant Iope cushion pillow :-)

Love these ladies!!

We did a little Secret Santa exchange for the holidays. It was SO much fun. I got Nikki's gift :)

 I posted details of everything I got here on Instagram :)

The damage...I didn't spend too much. Here is what I got:

From Daiso:
Cotton Pads
DIY Mask Sheets
Q10 Sheet Masks

From Amore Pacific:
Iope Cover Cushion in C13 - This came with a deluxe Plant Stem Cell gift set
Mamonde 7 Day Project in Brightening

I also got a few of these beautiful sheet masks posted here on my Instagram

These are labeled "Oriental Herbal Skincare Mask" from a company called SH-International. The packaging is to die for! I love the hanbok 한복 dresses. If you know any information on these masks or about this brand please leave me a comment below.

On my way back to Portland, I stopped in to see my good friend Gage who works at the Sulwhasoo counter inside the downtown Seattle Nordstrom.  And boy did he hooked me up with samples galore.

I picked up the Overnight Vitalizing Mask and the Hydro-Aid Moisturizing Lifting Mask

The Essential Kit (shown above) that includes: Essential Balancing Water and Emulsion, First Care Serum, Ginseng Cream and the Age Veil UV Protection Cream
Snowise EX Brightening Mask

I had so much fun meeting these amazing ladies and doing some shopping. We are all planning another Seattle meetup in February for Valentine's Day so if you live near by, you should definitely join us. Thanks again for reading and I hope everyone out there is enjoying the holiday season.
