[Meet Up] – Summer 2017

It’s almost Summer! Well we had that one gorgeous weekend in London, and now I’m hoping for more.
This also means it’s time for the Summer meet up, and I get to talk to people in real life instead of just through a phone.
Don’t worry if you’ve not been to a meet up before. Or if you’re a complete newbie when it comes to Asian Beauty. Everyone is welcome at the event, and we’re a friendly bunch.

We are Amélie and Anita, French co-founders of the online shop Mooni Mask, specialized in selling sheet masks. Our shop is very young, but we’ve been huge Asian cosmetics consumers for years. Coming from an Asian background, our mothers always taught us to take care of our skin (although to be honest, we did not care until our mid 20’s).
We wanted to share our ideas that taking care of your skin is easy and for everybody. You don’t need to have the knowledge of a beauty guru (just a bit of patience) or spend huge amount of money for a better skin. It is definitely a first step to self confidence, and it’s really important to us (bad skin is not a fatality!). Nothing fancy, but just having fun with real results.
We are constantly looking for new brands, famous or niche. We try them all, make our entourage try them if they do not suit us (YMMV), for our ever growing catalog. It is a good excuse to feed our sheet masks addiction as well.
Why Mooni? It is obviously a reference to the moon, a star very dear to Asians since it evokes femininity but also a luminous skin.

 Beauty and Seoul

Beauty & Seoul is an online store based in London bringing you specially curated beauty products from my motherland, South Korea. On returning to Korea as an adoptee, I was frustrated that I couldn’t speak the language and knew nothing about the culture I had left behind. In my search to connect with my motherland, I unexpectedly fell in love with KBeauty; it provided me with a precious link to my birth country. Quitting my marketing job in London led me to Seoul where I started blogging about beauty products and built up relationships with my favourite brands. Upon my return to London, I started Beauty & Seoul in an attempt to spread the KBeauty love and share this little piece of my story.

Beaut East Sphere

Why Beaut East Sphere? Simply because of my Asian roots. My whole childhood was spent watching my mum going through her products or getting beauty treatments at home. Eventually when I could afford to buy my own products, that’s when my own journey in the beauty world started. Couple of years and 2 kids later, I launched Beaut East Sphere in January 17. Deciding to work for myself wasn’t easy but it combines what I love and flexibility for my children. I also discovered an amazing AB community on Instagram and I’m so excited to be part of it and share my own journey too. Why shopping with Beaut East Sphere? Because I curate all my products myself and choose to feature safe brands only. This is the reason why I don’t have many brands either in my shop. But there is so much more to come with some very exciting Asian cosmetics.

Sounds great! Where do I Sign Up?

Deadline to sign up is the 11th June, which gives me and the sponsors enough time to know how many goodies we need to prepare. And what turnout will be like on the day.
It’s important that I know the number of people attending. So please do let me know if you have to drop out post this deadline. We’re all human and life can get in the way unexpectedly, so don’t worry I won’t hold it against you!
There’s also limited space in the restaurant, if there’s a big sign up then we may have to have a cut off based on first sign up. I used the past events to gauge interest, so hopefully this isn’t necessary.
Looking forward to seeing you all there!
