742. Recent Life | bambeau

These past few weeks I have been super busy with my new store - bambeau! It's an online store selling Korean skincare products which I started over a year ago. The name is pronounced similar to "bamboo" but the "-beau" is pronounced as in "beauty".

It was always a side project/hobby so I took a loooong (slow) time setting it up. I didn't really get any sales at first because I wasn't really promoting it. & to be honest I didn't think it could be really successful lol. I became busy with other things and lost interest in it for a few months..then in May for some weird reason, I started getting a lot of sales. Well, I started getting some sales which was "a lot" compared to none hahah. At that point I started putting a lot more work into it to keep the momentum. Then in June I got 3x more sales than in May..and now more than halfway through July I think I will at least double June's sales. I am really happy now it's a sustainable business and now I will keep it going. I've invested quite a bit so far.

I still work my usual job so this is a side thing for now. It feels really rewarding to grow something from nothing. Plus I'm really obsessed with skincare products so it's fun doing it. My rationale before was that if I wasn't able to sell anything, at least I would use everything myself eventually lol. Now I also have an excuse to buy a lot of skincare.

Please follow me there on Instagram! & message me if you'd like to purchase anything..I can offer a friends/Leftbanked followers discount ;)

One of the brands I stock is Laneige. I realize that the packaging is different for their North American market. The products I get are all with the Korea/Asian market packaging.

Pangaia Celestial Blue
I don't know why it look me so long to discover Pangaia. They sell basic clothing which are made sustainably using methods and materials that are not harmful to the environment; recyclable materials, environmentally-friendly dye, material from recycled plastic bottles, and they plant one mangrove tree per item sold. I ordered my first set from them and have been living in it every day hahah. I ordered a second set already which is on the way (red/orange coral shade)..I plan to get more in the other shades of blue too. They are super comfortable and I love the colours!

A few weeks ago, restaurants were finally allowed to open for patio seating. This was the first restaurant meal I had in months with my mom and sister.

Lake Mizzy Algonquin Park
Yesterday we went on a day trip to Algonquin Park. We went on a long hike to reach Mizzy Lake while getting eaten by mosquitoes. I think I got at least 50 bites on me (my record was 80+ in one night in Hong Kong a few years ago lol).

I guess I should have worn other shoes lol (they did get a bit muddier after this photo was taken). There was a severe thunderstorm on our drive there though so everything was wet. Luckily the sun came out when we arrived though.
