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

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.

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

College, and how you live while attending it, is a decision made by you and your parents. Some collegiettes live at home, while others may live far away. Some are restricted to a minimum allowance, and some don’t have to worry about whether they can eat out or pay rent. Regardless of your financial or parental situations, it is important that we are able to prove to our parents that we can “adult.” Continue reading
