[VIDEO] My Korean Skincare Routine





Thoughts from Alanna…

This week I wanted to try something a little bit different! I’ve been using a new Korean nighttime skincare routine for the last month or two and wanted to report back on how it’s going!

The products are:

Step 1. Wishtrend Green Tea Enzyme Powder Wash
Step 2. Klairs Supple Preparation Unscented Facial Toner
Step 3. Klairs Freshly Juiced Drop
Step 4. (Haven’t used yet) Skinmiso Pore Zero Night Cream

If this one’s is not for you, no worries! I’ll see you back here next week 🙂

Enjoy!




[VIDEO] Make Kraft Dinner with a Canadian





Thoughts from Alanna…

I wasn’t really feeling my original video idea so I thought: let’s make some lunch and chat.

A Canadian staple is Kraft Dinner, even though it’s pretty horrific. KD is super nostalgic and mine even comes straight from Canada itself! I know you can technically buy it in the UK but I’ve heard it’s not quite the same..

Hope you enjoy!

Thoughts from Alanna…

Being an expat means being on flights. A lot.

Over the years I’ve developed my favourite flight tricks and tips for surviving long flights that I wanted to share with everyone this week. I hope a few of things can help you on your next journey!

Got a few tips of your own? Let me know!

Some tips others mentioned that I forgot are bringing gum (to help pop your ears) and sound-cancelling headphones (which are fantastic for cancelling out the annoying hum of the plane).
