SPF

Koreans are known to be pretty extra when it

comes to sun protection. Many women use

large hats or umbrellas to shield the sun’s

harmful rays and they never leave the house

without SPF. It’s no secret that the sun is a

major cause of premature wrinkles and skin

goopy, thick, white paste we have here leaves

me looking more like a greasy, pasty mess so I

used to just skip it all together! It always made

my makeup look worse, especially as the day

went on and some even irritated my sensitive

skin! But last year I discovered Korean

sunscreen and now I protect my face every

day without sacrificing how my skin looks

and feels!

Korean sunscreen is lightweight, easily

absorbed and some of them even seem to

work almost like a primer- my makeup

adheres better and lasts longer!

SOCIAL

Hey! Thank you so much for stopping by Steph's Social Pie!

As a former journalist and Social Media Marketing student, I

wanted to create something different. I wanted to bring

back a little print media-feel, so I created a blog that looks

like a magazine! That wasn't enough though, so I came up

with an editorial that flips like the real deal!

I'm a one in a million kinda girl! And so are you:) My blog

should also be one of a kind! There's a ton of blogs out

there, so the competition to be seen is fierce. The only way

to stand out, is to be authentic. So here I am, just 4 months

in and amazed by the support and growth so far!

Since launching in February, I've learned so much through

school about the importance of SEO. Everything I've

implemented has helped me get to where I am so far. I've

started ranking on the first few google pages for

Hop On The Neon Trend

Summer is all about bright, fun, cheery

colors! This season's polish trend is no

exception. I'm loving the 80s vibes these

nail colors give! So bright, you'll light up

any room with your nails!

I tried the Sally Hansen neon nail colors and loved

the intense shades. I hardly wear polish because it

chips after a day or two, but trying out these fun

colors was fun and added a cute pop to my every

day!
