Hexagon (헥사곤) - Garosugil Sinsadong

Hexagon 헥사곤 latin american restaurant seoul south korea

I'm resurrecting 'the food series' after what has seemed like an absolute age. One of my favourite things to do in South Korea is explore all the restaurants, cafes, and general eateries that I've been eyeing up over on instagram for too fudging long. On my explorations so far, I've been happy to see that some of my favourite places from my year abroad are still alive and kicking, but also saddened that some of them haven't survived the last three years. Seoulites are a particularly tough crowd - competition is fierce

A few weeks ago - when I met up with Devina before Seoul Fashion Week - we went for a little wander around the DDP to take some photos, and then on to Sinsadong for me to see how much it's changed (not that much, but also so much at the same time), and for food. We weren't feeling anything particularly heavy, so decided to give Hexagon a go. 

Latin American food in Seoul? Ok let's go.

10 things I've learned in my first month of teaching abroad

10 things to know teaching english south korea
So I've been teaching for a month now - first official paycheck and everything - and it's definitely taught me a thing or two about life. I'm pleased that I wasn't ever really a complete and utter terror at school, and that I was one of those kids that actually did my homework despite not really wanting to.

Seriously, when people say that some jobs are easier than others, if they lump teaching into that I'm not going to be happy.

I teach elementary and middle school students (so from age 7 to about 14?) and they've taught me one or two things so far..

Or 10.

Collective Korean Beauty Haul: 3CE, Chosungah Beauty, Etude House + more

Ohh it's been a while since I've actually been able to do a proper haul - yay employment and feeding into the behemoth that is consumerism! I'm so happy to be back in close enough proximity to buy some of my favourite brands without having to worry about slightly extortionate shipping fees, marking up prices, and no free samples when you pass a certain payment point. 

I was pretty damned careful with my money last month, trying to work out what you're general expenses are when you also still have startup costs to worry about it hard, but I ended up spending way less than I thought! So, that means you can treat yo' self, right? 

This wasn't all bought in one day (I think I'd cry), it's a collection of some of the bits and pieces I've picked up over the last month - and includes a new brand I've yet to try~

[STREETSTYLE] Trend Report: Seoul Fashion Week

trend watch streetstyle seoul fashion week
If you've seen the streetstyle posts from this season of Seoul Fashion Week (if not: day 2, day 3, and day 6), you've probably got a bit of an idea of what's been trending in the style arena as we move into spring and summer. Since the weather was a little bit unpredictable, there were also some solid transitional outfits to deal with the conundrum of 'warm days, cold nights' that spring is known for. 

It's so confusing when I don't need a coat really to go to work, but as soon as I leave it's cruel and cold and a jumper just won't do.

So, if you're looking for some spring fashion inspiration to spice up your style game a la Seoul, I've done a little trend report for you. I've also included a lot of photographers that you should really check out the instagrams of!
