First outfit post from Korea starts with a classic look that literally never fails: a white shirt paired with blue denim. It's crazy to think that these pictures were taken a whole entire month ago... I met up with Michelle, who is a friend of a friend and also a blogger/youtuber! It was our first time meeting in person, but it felt like we already knew each other because we always watch each other's videos and what not. Anyways, to sum up our day, we ate pasta a Urban Sheriff, had dessert at my FAVORITE strawberry bingo place called "Peony," and shopped around Hongdae

PRESENTLY: I am writing this post at my parent's house in the States, which I will be staying for just a little bit before heading back up to Montreal. I've probably said this about ten thousand times now, but this summer has just been a whirlwind. I want to take time to reflect on my trip to Korea, so the following paragraph is mainly for my own diary/blog purposes of recording moments that are now just memories. Feel free to read if you are intrigued enough. 

Since middle school, I went to Korea every summer to see family and such. I'm so thankful to be able to go back every year to where I was born. Even though I've never really lived there, (my immigrated when I was three) I feel a deep attachment to my country of origin. Every summer is similar in many ways: I stay at my grandmother's house, I see my cousins and relatives, I have lunch with my mom's close friends, and I make sure I hit my favorite shopping areas. But this summer was different in so many ways too. First off, I was much, MUCH more independent this time around. Having never gone to school in Korea, I don't have many korean friends, so I used to get really bored when I was younger because all I would do is follow my mom around. But now, my Korean friends that I met in each city I lived in (both US and Canada) came to visit Seoul as well, so it was amazing to be able to reunite with people I haven't seen in many years. It's crazy how I didn't see some of these friends while I lived in the States for years, but we somehow are able to meet up across the world. I grew super close to some of these friends, (i'm sure you would know if you've seen my instagram), and we made memories that we will probably talk about until we are old ajummas. (Korean word for middle aged woman) 

Another big difference this summer was that I turned the legal drinking age in Korea, so I got to experience Korean drinking culture (SOJU, SOJU, SOJU) and nightlife. To say the least, it was pretty crazy. Now that I am back, I am treating my liver to a much needed detox period. All in all, I had such an amazing time in Seoul, but at the same time, I was ready to head back home towards the end of the month-long stay. Now that I got all the partying/being super lazy out of my system, I feel reenergized and motivated to get back to work. 

Now, I am kind of ranting. BUT, I've also given a lot of thought on what I will do with my blog. Of course, I will keep continuing to post, but I think I am going to gradually focus more on Youtube from now on. Just a side note, hehe. :)

Thank you all for reading, and I hope you are enjoying the last few weeks of summer. <3

Sorry if you are sick of me ranting on and on about my trip to Spain... but this is the last (or maybe second to last) post! Follow me around the sights, and see what I ate basically.

It's a weird feeling to write this post a month after these pictures were taken. This is the last outfit post from my trip to Spain. (Although it's barely an outfit at all...) I saved best for last as chilling on the Mediterranean at La Barceloneta was hands-down my fave part of the trip. Tanning and swimming to my heart's desire with the most beautiful scenery was just the perfect summer day. 

I have a week left in Seoul, before I head back to the States, then back to Canada for school. wow. That was a whirlwind. I made so many memories during my stay here, and I can't wait to share those in vlog/picture format here.

Red J. Crew Pencil Skirt

Here is what I wore on a night out in Barcelona. A bold cherry red pencil skirt, that looks great dressed down with an easy crop top. I love the eyelet pattern on this skirt, so that I don't look like I'm trying to pull off a first-lady look. We ate at 7 Portes in Barcelona, a restaurant famous for their paellas. My favorite was the squid ink paella, which I know sounds funny, but it has a really rich flavor that any seafood lover would enjoy. After dinner, my sister and I went to the W Hotel, which is right on the Mediterranean coast. The hotel is stunning at night, as all of the lights sparkle against the sea. Taking in this dream-like view all the whilst having a major sister-to-sister talk is a moment I won't ever forget and am so thankful for.

We took these pictures in a hurry before the sun was about to set. Good thing about Spain is that pretty much every street is filled with beauty, so finding a gorgeous background is no problem. 

Already two weeks have passed since I landed in Korea... whhhheeerre the heck did the time go? So far, I hit up all of my favorite shopping places and restaurants, and discovered the beauty of places that are open 24 hours a day. An open letter of apology to my skin, as I am having the most erratic sleeping/eating schedule here. I am also pleasantly surprised at how many people I have met so far in Seoul. But of course, more details on my trip will come as I plan on uploading multiple videos of my time here. 

For those of you in the USA, hope you had a great 4th of July!
