South Street Seaport x CECI BEAUTY THERAPY Collaboration – Korean Beauty Tips From A Local New Yorker

I’m so excited to reveal that I recently collaborated with the South Street Seaport to write an article for their blog and it’s been published! You can see the JKNLEE South Street Seaport store visit in my last post here where I toured the store and showed you my Snapchat haul. I am honored to write this piece for the Seaport District because I’ve grown up near this beautiful community in the last 30 years where I’m witnessing its growth and influence to bring people together.

You can read the full article to see my favorite beauty tip that I live by and my Top 3 Picks from the stores here under the South Street Seaport’s “Stories” link! I’ll also do an Instagram Takeover on their handle here so watch out in the coming week (my first post is already live)! Hope you enjoy the article! Leave me any comments if you have anything to share or questions to ask!

Store Visit: JKNLEE South Street Seaport Pop-Up Shop

South St Seaport JKNLee Pop-Up Shop

K-beauty is multiplying! The insanity is just not stopping and I’m LOVING it. I’ve lived in Chinatown, NYC practically all my life and the closest shopping destination used to be the South Street Seaport‘s Pier 17. I actually worked at the Express and Coach store once upon a time. Retail businesses suffered since Hurricane Sandy wrecked havoc on the community in 2012 but I’m thrilled to say that the Seaport District has been hugely revitalized! There are free music fests, a permanent Smorgasburg (inside the Fulton Street Market where the Gap used to be), outdoor seating and a plethora of new bars and restaurants that add vibrancy back to the neighborhood. The new Pier 17 will also open in 2017. Little did I know that they are also heavily on-trend in the beauty scene because there’s a temporary K-beauty pop-up shop from JKNLEE. I collaborated with the South Street Seaport, did a photo tour of the space and picked up some things too!

UPDATE: K-Beauty Sample Sale! Club Clio, Peripera, Goodal at Deep Discounts in Chinatown, NYC

JKNLEE SALE UPDATE:

Your best bet at getting the best stock at the JKNLEE K-Beauty Sample Sale is by getting there as early as 10:30AM! There were some new things that were put out as I didn’t recognized some items (I crept by the window at night because they wouldn’t let you in past 6pm). They have a very organized way of allowing the maximum amount of people through the doors as a means of crowd control. Each shopper is handed a plastic shopping bag with a number on it and when the shopper pays and exits, a new shopper gets their chance inside. There’s someone monitoring the door at all times so I didn’t feel like it was chaotic at all. See my insider photos when you click to read more! (more…)

K-Beauty Sample Sale! Club Clio, Peripera, Goodal at Deep Discounts in Chinatown, NYC – UPDATED 1/9/16

I walk through Chinatown, NYC in order to go to work every morning and I noticed a new store was about to open on the corner of Catherine Street and East Broadway. There was no signage but I can look in easily through the ceiling to floor windows and saw a design board with Club Clio’s logo on the color samples for the walls! I was psyched that another k-beauty store was coming into town so I took a picture of the storefront for my records and waited for some sort of announcement before I leaked my photo out. Through IG, there was a Sample Sale announcement from JKNLee, a new k-beauty ecommerce site that houses Club Clio, Goodal, Peripera, Dr. G, Ostia, SOO AE, and even Tony Moly. Click through to see my SNEAK PEEK PHOTOS BEFORE IT OPENS TO THE PUBLIC TODAY!

1/9/16 EDIT: I published a new post with updated in-store photos and more details with pricing, products and how to shop!

Peach and Lily First Ever Sample Sale in NYC – Days 1 & 2 Full In-Depth Tour

Peach and Lily held the first ever Korean Beauty Sample Sale in New York City last week and I was there for both days – Day 1 as a regular patron and Day 2 as an invited VIP/Press guest during their VIP preview. In this post, I’m writing about my experience on both sides, on both days. If you’re not familiar with what Peach and Lily is, they’re an ecommerce site that curate and deliver the best beauty from Asia and make it accessible for those in search for perfect skin. They carry innovative, hard-to-find brands like MAY-COOP and Cremorlab where even Korean locals have a difficult time searching for.

The Sample Sale advertised that makeup would be $5 each or 5 for $20 as a bundle. The only makeup brands were from Club Clio or Peripera – Club Clio’s younger sister brand – (oh and one highlighter pencil from Oh Shy!). As for skincare, my email indicated savings up to 90% off for brands that included Aromatica, Caolion, IOPE, Mizon, Shangpree, Tony Moly, Son & Park, Lalavesi, Moonshot and MORE! I salivated reading my email over and over again. It seemed too good to be true! Click to see EVERYTHING! (more…)
