[Costco Korea] Kakao Friends Notebook Set

I got a crazy good deal on the cutest Kakao Friends Notebooks at Costco!
Today, I just wanted to let you know about a great deal I got this week. It's great for souvenirs or gifts for loved ones back home, especially since it's so Korea-specific. Kakao Friends merchandise make great gifts!
Which character is your favorite??

It's a set of 10 paper notebooks for 6,290 KRW (less than $6 USD for all 10 notebooks).

They are authentic, licensed notebooks and have the holographic seal on the back.
My guess is the price might be about 1,500 to 2,500 each if you were to buy them in the store.

I am not sure if all packs are the same, but we did look at many of them, and the bindings all seemed to have the same color combinations.

We got:
3 Ryan (the lion) notebooks
3 Apeach notebooks (affectionately called "double butt" by me and a few friends)
2 Muzi (the raddish wearing a bunny costume) notebooks
1 Tube (the duck that turns into a dragon when mad) - the back of the notebook has the dragon on it
1 Neo (the fashionista cat)

Sorry Frodo and Jay G fans, I don't think they were in any of the packs.
These are LINED notebooks.

They also had spring-bound notebooks. It was a little more expensive, a little more than 9,000 KRW, for 6 notebooks). Not sure what the notebooks look like, so if you get them send me a snapshot at

I got mine at the Yangjae Costco location, if you see them at any of the other Costcos, let me know :)
These were on the first floor, on the right-hand wall when you enter the store, on the side by the kitchenware.

[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.
