About Me

This is the place where social media and beauty collide! Taking my love for both, I am here to help you uncover and put together this puzzle of Asian beauty and social media marketing. It can be frustrating living in a country that is not your own, so I hope to help you navigate the beauty aspect of things. I seek out unique, cutting-edge companies then put them to the test. Whether it be Seoul, Bangkok, or Singapore, I want to navigate the Asian beauty market and showcase what’s trending. Some are loved. Some less than loved. You’ll always get the full (honest) scoop here. You can also interact with me all over the internet @7seasonsstyle, whether it is on Instagram, Facebook, or live streaming on Busker.

I am a Professional.

My background is in marketing, social media, and advertising. It is what I live and breathe. Full time I’m a professor here in Seoul and have been teaching marketing and business related topics at the university level for more than 8 years. I received my MBA in global economics and have a BS in marketing and an AS in merchandising. I also work with various companies in South Korea and overseas as a marketing specialist and help brands develop their marketing, branding, and strategy as well as assist with product development and launch to market. I also connect companies overseas to South Korean businesses and build partnerships for working relations in the future. Contact me directly if you would like to discuss working together or have more questions about my professional portfolio.

In addition to this, I am an executive consultant with Rodan and Fields, the number one premium skincare company in the United States. If you are ever interested in their skincare products, or would like to learn more about my business with them, please contact me directly for a personal consultation.

I’m Not a Millionaire.

Yes, I do take sponsorships for some posts on my page, but have no fear. Every opinion is always my own and I clearly let you all know when complimentary products have been sent to me. I will continue to tell you the good, the bad, and the ugly of everything I try. I’m never paid to give good reviews or write a positive post. Period. The companies that I choose to work with agree and understand how important that is for me, and my voice will never be for sale.

That being said, I am quite choosy about who I work with in the first place. I do decline businesses if their ingredients are subpar, or they don’t align with my standards. So if my reviews seem to always be positive, it’s because the products really are great. I don’t have time or money to waste on subpar beauty brands.

I’m Not a Doctor (yet).

I am by no means a doctor so please, don’t seek medical advice from me. I can only give you my opinion on the ingredients based on my personal research and experiences. I don’t claim to be a makeup artist or esthetician, but I do love learning new things and consider myself well educated in these areas. Unless stated as an unboxing or first impression, I test makeup products for 3-5 days, and skincare products for at least 2 weeks with continual use, before sharing my thoughts on this site or other social sites. My skin is pretty forgiving. I suffer from some dryness, redness, occasional breakouts, and fine lines.

Content is Mine

Any content listed on this site or my other social media outlets is owned by me, unless otherwise stated. You may share the content non-commercially (ie share on Facebook or Instagram) as long as you link back and give credit to me as the content creator, writer, photographer, and all around awesome person that I am. This means you can’t use my face for marketing or embed my images or videos on your websites. If you would like to use my images or content for commercial purposes please contact me directly discuss the details.

I was just nominated for The Liebster Award and now it's my turn to do some nominating. And since you're pretty fantastic I'm nominating you!
