[NYC - Chelsea] Doughnut Plant - Tres Leches Doughnuts!

In New York City? Gotta try the doughnuts from Doughnut Plant in Chelsea so you can take a picture in front of the donut wall. 

I have been to two locations in NYC and the one in Seoul. The location in Chelsea (220 W 23rd St) has more seats and the workers are a little more friendly. As you can see by my blurry picture (above) the store is decorated with cute doughnut cushions on the walls.
There are chairs and round tables (doughnuts, get it?) and a long slatted bench along one wall.
The Lower East Side location, near Chinatown (379 Grand Street - original location) is a doughnut shop, not as café-like as the Chelsea location. There are maybe 2 tables and some window bar seating.

As you can see, there are plenty of doughnut options, including seasonal flavors and daily if you needed more excuses to eat doughnuts.

They label the doughnuts clearly. The first decision you have to make is if you want a yeast doughnut or a cake doughnut or a filled doughnut.

I really like the tres leches doughnut, a cake doughnut. The cinnamon sugar, also a cake doughnut, is pretty good, too. They are famous for the crème brulee doughnut, but I have not tried it yet.

I am not a huge fan of filled doughnuts, so I haven't tried any of those before. If you try them, let me know what you think.

They make all of their fillings and use only natural ingredients in their doughnuts.

They are more expensive than most doughnuts, but their flavors are more intense and unique than you will find at your local Dunkin. The doughnut was around $3 after yeah, more expensive than Dunkin.

If you're in Seoul, the location is nearby Myeongdong, across from the Lotte Department Store (Euljiro-1-ga Station, Exit 2).

Even though it is expensive, Doughnut Plant is worth a try because of its history, atmosphere, and flavor.

[Skincare Review] Head-to-Head Test: Estee Lauder Advanced Night Repair vs. La Mer The Concentrate

 As promised, here is my blog comparing the Estee Lauder Advanced Night Repair vs. the La Mer The Concentrate. FTC disclaimer: I was sent both of these items for free in exchange for my full and honest review. I tried to be as scientific as humanly possible. I had a blinded reviewer (my mom) who was actually unaware I was even doing a skincare test, so her opinion is completely blinded and she tried really hard to give a full and honest review of differences she noticed. I did this for 2 weeks. In the 14 days before the test, I was testing out the Estee Lauder ANP product in exchange for my review. I had enough product left (and actually received a second sample to test). My nighttime skincare routine was the same as usual. 1) DHC Cleansing Oil - Buy from YesStyle | Buy from Amazon 2) Micellar Water (for eye makeup) 3) Rosette Cleansing Paste Sea Clay Smooth - Buy From YesStyle  | Buy from Amazon I used my PMD Clean (from CAUSEBOX) to wash my face.
