My Take on Why BTS is so Popular

Last Sunday, on May 21, 2017, the first K-pop group – BTS – received a Billboard music award for Top Social Artist. However, many people are asking the big questions: who are they, and why do they deserve this award?

For those immersed in the K-pop-sphere, you already know the answer to these questions and more; but, for those – especially Westerners – who are not, this article will help explain who these seven boys are, and why they received a BBMA. Continue reading

Good evening loves~ (or morning…. or afternoon)

I just wanted to pop on, and say that I’ve missed you guys a lot! I’ve got a lot of things to catch up on, as you guys know.

By this Thursday, I will be completely done with all of my exams *internally explodes with happiness*, and I will be able to focus on more pleasant things — like creating content for you guys!

I have a couple ideas for posts lined up, but I would love to incorporate what you guys would like to see/ read/ hear from me.

I hope that by the end of the summer I reach these short-term goals:

  1. resume posting on Tuesdays and Saturdays
  2. obtain a custom domain
  3. update M.A.N.’s profile
  4. publish a total of 150 well-written posts/videos
  5. get to know you guys more

By August, My Authentic Nature will be established for two years, but I feel like I haven’t lead my blog to it’s fullest potential, and I would love to make it up to M.A.N., and you!

I would love to know any kinds of requests that you might have, whether it be: a video idea, a topic to talk on, my views on current events, etc.

So, please leave any requests or suggestions down below, and I will see you Saturday for another blog post!

Bye-Bye~


Until Next Time xoxo

Why You Should Start Investing in a Skincare Regimen

It is clinically proven that you cannot reverse the effects of aging, without going under the needle. Therefore, the only way to manage wrinkles, crow’s feet, under-eye bags, etc. is by preventing such effects. Your skin mainly craves and is deprived of hydration, moisture, and nutrients.

Currently, skin care is the biggest cosmetic trend, especially in South Korea. From sheet masks to essences, Westerners want-in on the secrets of looking younger, longer.

In South Korea, they are obsessed with their 10-step skin-care regimen. Don’t panic! You should customize your skin care regimen to fit your skin’s unique needs. Some beauty bloggers have as low as 5 steps, while some are known to have 12-13 steps. It is not expected to suddenly splurge on a bunch of high-end skin care products, but you can start small with some of the basic steps. At first, it may seem like a hassle, but your skin deserves your upmost attention.

Not to mention, there are a lot of drug-store products that can do wonders for stressed out college students.

Life Update [032117]

Happy Monday Lovelies~

Long time no see, I took about a week off to relax with my family and my boyfriend in Breckenridge, Colorado! Stay tuned for an upcoming vlog, and yes, we did get action footage! I am also planning a review for the camera I purchased, and am fairly happy with.

A quick update — with the semester coming to a quick close, I have major projects due, and many more exams to endure. That being said, I will unfortunately continue to be not as active as I was in the past.

BUT! Like I always promise, I am going to make a heard earned effort to post a couple times a month. I already have some posts/projects planned out, and I have some rainy day posts that I can edit and throw out there as well.

I am also currently working with one of my friends, and freshman babies, with some new graphics! *excitement!!* As the weeks progress, I will throw out some teasers, and hopefully, by our second anniversary, I will have everything together to claim our own domain *flailing excitement!!*

Thank you so much for being so patient with my busy schedule. I know I need to stop beating around the bush, and procrastinating at times, but do know I am trying to be up to date with things.

Until Next Time XOXO

Hello Beautiful~

Spring break is already around the corner, if not here already, and today I am back with something a little different! I was recently motivated by the people at Tripping to think of my must-haves for any beach vaccation!

 

I get really irritated when I forget something in my hotel room, especially after I’m all oiled up with the sand between my toes. So, to make things a little easier, I made a quick check list of items that might be helpful for you when you hit the beach in the upcoming days, or weeks! Continue reading
