[Seoul - Gangnam] Tomatillo Grill

I remember when I was studying abroad in Seoul more than a decade ago, the only places we could get "Mexican" food were Dos Tacos and Tomatillo Grill.

Tomatillo Grill still holds a little place in my heart for being the one place I could get some Tex Mex when I was really craving it. It's weird though, now that I live in America, I haven't had Chipotle in like 6 years, even though I walk past it every day on my way to work, but, for some reason, I was dying for it back in college.

There are plenty of tacos, burritos, and more on the menu. This day, I wanted to try a taco salad. I think it was a fine taco salad and it was lighter than many of the other menu options were. I got mine with fish as the protein. This was kind of a Baja fish taco salad, I guess.

I don't remember why, but my friend decided that a beer flight would be the perfect lunch that day. I mean, I wish I had my friend's confidence, and I was definitely jealous, but I am scared of waitstaff judging me, especially in Korea where I'm trying to blend in, so I went with a regular food option.

I ordered this margarita and I do not recommend. I don't know what possessed me to order this atrocity of a margarita, but here it is in all it's unnatural blue green glory. I won't even tell you what it is.

[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.
