i’ve been attempting to make our seoul apartment feel more cozy, which is difficult when you know its not your long-term home, and also when you are on a non-existent budget to do so haha. i have been pinteresting (is that a verb?! im so new to this.) washi tape DIY, and its amazing! i made a washi tree on one of our walls. i found some at a japanese boutique called niko and… i also bought an eiffel tower print. we seem to have a lot of eiffel towers in our house so i figure why not go overboard with it. the second print is from one of my favorite movies, léon. if you haven’t seen it, its definitely a must! i bought it at the home, table and deco tradeshow along with some cards.

these days im trying to revive snail mail. ugh, i watched a video about how much time we spend on the internet and i was prompted to delete all the apps on my phone (i re-downloaded them 5min. after….). i really do think receiving a little something in the mail is such a treat, and if it gets me off the internet for that much longer then so be it. plus, seoul has way too many cute things that fit in tiny envelopes.

ps. meet my puppy roo!

you can’t go wrong with black and wine paired together, can you? i thought these 3 gals brought some solid daily looks – actually, don’t all koreans always look on point? they really do. i particularly enjoy the polka dot skirt and those unexpected plaid socks, in the first look. i think when an outfit gets too predictable, you can always rely on your socks to throw a curve ball haha. click here for my take on wild socks. *current mood: cry, its wednesday but it really feels like a friday.. but its not friday. boooo.*

neighborhood bakery bakery seoul eungam station eunpyeong gu bakery clementine 응암역 베이커리 빵집 빵 맛있는 은평구 samcheongdong seoul tourist attraction where to visit go prison museum dongrimun station dongnimun

finally got to try the new bakery that opened in my neighbourhood. the thing about living in asia is things come and go really quickly. its happened several times while i was living in beijing and also seoul that you want to go to a coffee shop or restaurant, but when you show up its either in the process of being demolished or something new has already replaced it. anyhow, the bakery was delicious! we particularly enjoyed the bread that had mixed nuts, spices and fruits inside. tasted like christmas. it seems that christmas spirit has already begun in seoul.

we went to samcheongdong and there was so many adorable christmas trees and decorations everywhere you looked. samcheongdong is one of my favorite areas in seoul because it feels so magical. there are traditional korean-style houses (hanoks) mixed in with more modern designs, surrounded by beautiful street art and delicate little boutiques. somehow, every shop in that area feels like it belongs. we visited a little stationary shop where he makes everything by hand. next, we went to a beautiful flower shop and lastly, we ended up bumping into some actors who invited us to have a coffee with them at their coffee shop. it was so much fun! they invited me to join their theatre group, and i know nothing about acting, but im thinking now is the time to start trying new things.

here i am, being my usual self- which is definitely not gangnam style. besides working in gangnam, i really have no interest in hanging around that area at all. im actually working as an intern at coex right now, which is a bit painful. coex is the world trade center of seoul, but attached is the largest underground shopping mall in asia, that has literally all of the shops and brands i absolutely love in one place. everyday i walk by them, and i wave hello *through a window* to a sparkly pair of shoes or a beautiful allsaints jacket.

today, i went to publique cafe which is at the coex mall. theres a new fancy hawaiian cafe opening up soon (im intrigued by anything with the word hawaii attached), and my other option is dean & deluca. i spent my time filling out this leather planner i snagged at #foodweekkorea. its a perfect size, looks and feels exactly like a moleskine, and only cost me 5$!

kim hye in streetstyle street fashion korean 김혜인  스트릿스타일 패션위크

i was really impressed with the fluidity of kim hye in’s poses. she was incredibly comfortable in front of all the streetstyle photographers looking to get their shot in. probably even more so than some of the models i shot. i really love how she conquered the feat of wearing oversized from head to toe without looking bulky or losing her femininity. the choker necklaces we keep seeing on the girls of seoul fashion week always catch my eye, as does her cartoon-ish watch bracelet.
