While everyone is safe and sound in their own homes, the kitchen has easily become a spot where the magic happens.

A lot of people decided to mull over the world’s news, rethink their career plans, and plan to get life insurance and investments while having a cup of Dalgona coffee.

For hair and makeover enthusiasts, the quarantine period is the perfect time to experiment with different hairstyles.
