Seoul Weekly Wanderings #2

Autumn has arrived in Seoul (thank god), bringing with it a fresh breeze and beautiful contrasts of fiery leaves against the grey concrete! Now that I'm trying to be more aware of my surroundings I am noticing just how much street art is hidden around this city.

For me, there are two options for the perfect Sunday: staying on the sofa with a Sci-Fi marathon...or heading out to Noksapyeong for a casual stroll and some amazing food. This little corner of Northern Seoul is a great place to explore. Don't arrive too early or you will find most establishments aren't open. In… Continue reading LAZY SUNDAYS IN NOKSAPYEONG

My first post concerns something very near and dear to me: my personal kit of essentials which I carry with me at all times around Seoul. I do genuinely get a kick out of finding mini-sized versions of things for my bag - the practicality! The usefulness! The friggin cuteness! I have detailed everything below… Continue reading WHAT’S IN MY BAG | SEOUL SUMMER EDITION
