How To Deal With A Friendship Breakup

vPeople change. And that's why friendship breakups suck. Because friends are the family you choose. And family is supposed to be forever, so when your friendship ends it just doesn't make sense. It feels like the end of the world, but it's not. You can get through this, here are some tips to help you do so.

It’s hard to imagine, but there might come a day when you will experience a friendship breakup. There are few experience as heartbreaking as when you realize that the person you once considered a true friend, someone you could confide in completely, can no longer be part of your life. So many of the relationships we form in our lives seem to have a short shelf life and it’s expected that you won’t always keep in touch with them. Teachers, co-workers, classmates, the cute Russian guy you’ve been ogling since the day he sat next to you at the school assembly*sigh*…etc.

When these people walk into your life you’re almost already sure that they’ll be walking out soon enough, so when they do it’s not a big deal. But when it’s your ride or die homie who has become a major source of love and support for years it is jarring to say the least.

Etude House Moistfull Collagen Deep Cream

Product Review: Etude House Moistfull Collagen Deep Cream

Etude House Moistfull Collagen Deep Cream is my new favorite product! It's deep moisturizing and it makes my skin look and feel amazing. Check out my full review on!

When I packed for my move to Seoul I had to make a tough choice. I knew that airlines are strict about the amount of liquid oz. they allow you carry. And so instead of packing my Olay moisturizer in my makeup bag I had to leave it behind. Tears may have been shed.

After two weeks in Seoul without a solid face cream routine I started breaking out and my skin was dry and ashy. Gross.

It wasn’t until I saw Etude House’s TV ads for their new Moistfull Collagen cream that I finally decided enough was enough and I headed to one of the million Etude House stores in my area.

It was as if fate had answered my skin’s pleas for help because the moment I walked in I saw that the cream I was searching for was not only on sale but it came with some awesome samples!
