[Reflection] My Placement Year Studying Abroad in Seoul

Oh gosh. Where do I start? I started this post off from Amsterdam, during a really long layover on my way back to Birmingham, and I'm finishing it off now, just as my final year is about to begin. Korea already feels like a dream from another time. I have a LOT of feelings and… Continue reading [Reflection] My Placement Year Studying Abroad in Seoul

[Chatter] Staying Until it’s Over

It's almost April, somehow. This year feels surreal, but for all the wrong reasons. In the words of my university, the current situation is dynamic and rapidly changing. The current government advice is to travel home, however, after much discussion with friends and family, I am staying in Seoul for the time being, at least until… Continue reading [Chatter] Staying Until it’s Over

[Cafe Break] Cafe Pado, an Art Cafe in Hapjeong, Seoul

Pado is absolutely a new favourite place of mine in Seoul. I almost skipped out on visiting it, but I figured I should at least check it out, and I am SO glad I did. It's downright gorgeous and in my opinion, definitely worth a detour. Cafe Pado is best accessed via the Hapjeong station… Continue reading [Cafe Break] Cafe Pado, an Art Cafe in Hapjeong, Seoul

[Review] Innisfree Vivid Oil Tint in #9 Bloody Chocolate Red

Here we are, folks! The first lipstick I bought in Korea! Aren't we excited?? Because I know I am!! It's getting towards the end of January, so time is really flying by. It's colder in Seoul compared to Birmingham as it's constantly hitting minus temperatures in Seoul, but I've been told it's not too bad… Continue reading [Review] Innisfree Vivid Oil Tint in #9 Bloody Chocolate Red

[Thoughts/Seoul Diary] Not Quite Homesick

So my second week of classes is over. I have a long post for you all today - I am back to relying on the blog to get my thoughts out due to the different timezones and sometimes not wanting to bother people with my feelings. I've been telling people I am fine and settling… Continue reading [Thoughts/Seoul Diary] Not Quite Homesick

Media Edit, April 2019

This post was originally way over 2k words! It was meant to be scheduled for April so I've cut it down to extend a bit into May as well, and will likely include more May in my next edit, too. TV Shows I've binged all three seasons of Queer Eye! I'm loving the concept of… Continue reading Media Edit, April 2019

[Beauty & Chatter] London Day 1|Epik High at the Electric Ballroom

About a month ago, I went to London for a night to see Epik High perform at the Electric Ballroom. My boyfriend and I were planning to visit London anyway for our one-year anniversary, so we moved the trip and made an extended date out of it! I'll be sharing bits and bobs here, talking… Continue reading [Beauty & Chatter] London Day 1|Epik High at the Electric Ballroom

Year-End Media Editorial 2017

I actually really enjoy doing this type of post and the only thing that ever puts me off writing these is knowing I have to add a billion hyperlinks at the end. Anyhow, that means I have a lot to chat about since like, March (!!), so let's get started! This is what I've been… Continue reading Year-End Media Editorial 2017

Review: MAC FutureForward X LeeHi

One of the big draws of Korean Beauty is all our favourite idols promoting them. From products selling out because members of EXO use them, to ranges selling well because faces like Yoona and Suzy are representing the brand, K-Beauty treats us well. The two worlds of K-Beauty and Western Beauty rarely cross, so being… Continue reading Review: MAC FutureForward X LeeHi

My Experience at G-Dragon’s ‘Act III: MOTTE’ Tour in Birmingham

I may have recounted this story a number of times, but I got into K-pop because a family friend spent her gap year in Korea and came back with a K-pop mix on a CD, full of Bigbang and SHINee's old hits and Lee Hyori's U Go Girl. We played it when her mom picked… Continue reading My Experience at G-Dragon’s ‘Act III: MOTTE’ Tour in Birmingham
