Spent the whole weekend packing and then finally moving out yesterday. I am SO pooped.
So...the Maurie & Eve Autumn 2012 collection has been doing the blog rounds lately, I think everyone is pretty ecstatic about those pants in the first picture! Hopefully they're silk. So Céline!

This is the first time I'm trying out something by make-up label Korres, the Lip Butter Glaze in Jasmine is the most wonderful buttery nude ever. I have a hard time finding nude products that sit well with my skin tone so I think this is it! Very moisturizing so it gets double the points and I heartily recommend it!
Yesterday I ended up going to Itaewon and popping into Life Is Just A Cup Of Cake to try out a cupcake. I always try the Red Velvet (that is if they make that kind) when I find a new place and judge from there. You're probably thinking that I should probably rename this blog Fashion Cupcakes or something I know since I talk about them so much. I am a little too enthusiastic about making/eating them but seriously those little things are just a passion of mine.
So...cake thoughts.... for starters, the price is around 4,800 Korean Won (which is like 4.50-5 bucks??!) for a decidedly midget-sized cupcake. In my opinion it was too crumbly (I usually like mine extra moist) and I don't like to waste bread...however the cream cheese frosting was really good so a major save there. The cafe is literally tiny- if I step on my tippy-toes I can touch the ceiling and let me tell ya I'm a shorty. I think the cafe has somewhat of a cult following though, the lady behind me bought 28 to go and ended up forking over at least $120 and literally cleared the trays.
Anyhow, it's not bad so make sure to pop by if you're ever in Seoul.

I find myself wandering around the streets of HongDae a lot lately. Loads of interesting shops, quaint little cafes & winding lanes choc-a-bloc full of inspiration and dreams. Maybe I'll take my camera with me today and take some photos for you. It snowed yesterday so I'm sure the streets are even prettier.

Excuse the brief absence, I was celebrating (stuffing my face) Korean New Year in Daegu for the last couple of days.
I'm back in Seoul now and can I say that it is sjhy#&*@ freezing here at the moment. Loving these sunny images of label Scotch&Soda's women line, Maison Scotch. Scotch&Soda has been on my clothing radar for a while. I love their relaxed, slightly preppy vibed clothes.

Some images that I've culled from one of my favourite tumblrs, Hawaiian Coconut by Emily Faulstich (one half of cult label, Wildfox Couture). She takes the most dreamy, dreamy pictures of her life & travels ever!

Holy moly! My jaw totally dropped when I first saw this ed. Kudos to stylist Robert Rydberg for doing a mind-blowing job with the expert layering.
