Rasselbock German Kitchen & Beer Garden

As a native to the 5-6-2 district, I am blessed to be surrounded by works of arts on every wall, parties at every hour, and a dose of culture at every corner. Long Beach is a flourishing culture hub full of exciting new businesses waiting to be discovered. When I discovered Rasselbock German Kitchen & Beer Garden in Bixby Knolls last week (thank you Postmates), I knew I had to stop in. 

The Rasselbock menu boasts of 35 German & Belgian beers, homemade sangrias, and a wide selection of German and Californian wines. In addition, its specialty selections of delicious German food with a modern twist are perfect for those longing to have experienced Oktoberfest or those with Oktoberfest withdrawals. It's a great way to get a taste of German culture close to home.

The Best of K-Beauty Brands Summer 2019

Korean beauty, a.k.a "K-beauty". The uprising of Kpop and all things Korean-related has taken the world by storm. Understandably, the beauty industry has taken notice. Dewy skin, radiant glows, and youthful luminosity- it seems the Korean beauty industry knows a thing or two about skincare. Thanks to Mattson Global, I had an inside look at some of the top K-beauty brands out there. When it comes to skincare, I have be extremely cautious. I have both sensitive and acne-prone skin- that combination leaves me quite vulnerable to the unfortunate consequences of irritated skin. So when it comes to testing out products, you can understand why I can be very hesitant. After a few trials of a few gifted K-beauty products, I have rounded up a shortlist of my favorites and why.
