There is something strangely therapeutic about Sunday mornings.
For many, Sunday exists at the beginning of the weekly calendar, but for me, the day lives on its own and renders much overdue repose in the form of fresh squeezed juices, nourishing face masks, and a good read. This particular Sunday, though, was allotted for a long-awaited brunch gathering hosted by Korean dermatologist brand, Dr. Jart at the Standard Hotel, located in Manhattan’s Meatpacking District.
Four social influencers and I gathered in the hotel lobby just after noon, and we were quickly greeted by brunch host, Erica Choi, the face of Egg Canvas. I first became a believer of Korean facial sheet masks when I met Erica, who shared her love for Dr. Jart masks — I’ve always openly coveted her porcelain skin as she modestly denies every utterance of a compliment. This event gave photographer, Sharon Radisch (@cacahuete_sr), fashion expert, Jessica (@notjessfashion), beauty director of Refinery29.com, Megan McIntyre (@megsmcintyre), and me the opportunity to learn all of her skincare secrets, and to bask in God’s greatest gifts to mankind — sheet masks and brunch cocktails.
