10 good things in May

positivity in blogging 10 good things
Well, May has been a month. I feel like I've been all little wrung out emotionally since the start, even though nothing bad has happened to me personally. I think I'm still trying to get used to being energetic for 6 hours a day. As I said in 10 things I've learned in my first month of teaching, if you think this job is gonna be an easy ride, think again. 

The fact that I've not been particularly consistent here or on my youtube is also contributing massively to my 'meh' mood. I love this space so much, and I hate feeling like I'm not taking care of it enough. If anyone has any tips for blogging or creating videos around a full time job, please share them with me!! Also, if you'd like to see anything specific as video content let me know too~ I'm definitely going to be vlogging UMF Korea, and things I get up to during the summer. 

May hasn't been all tragic or 'meh' though! I've been busy going out and doing things and meeting people and making new friends and still wishing I lived in Seoul proper. So have 10 good things that have happened this month, since I'm all about focusing on the positives.

Caron Heim Macarons

Macarons are having a bit of  a moment in Korea right now. They've always had the underlying popularity that comes with the slight decadence and French Patissiere extravagance, but recently the number of bakeries that make them (and make them well) has boomed. No more Paris Baguette disappointments~ Score.

One such bakery is Caron Heim (caron_heim on instagram, or 가롱하임 in hangeul), which is a beautiful little independent business based in Bupyeong, Incheon.

With Reckless Abandon: the art of making luck

I've had this post sitting in my drafts for ages, since, ironically, I haven't really found the right words, or the right phrasing. Nothing has felt like it's articulated my point well enough. A point that is basically talking about how I do things without really thinking about possible consequences more often than not.

Seriously (and sorry, mum, dad, really I am) I have a habit of getting myself into some really hilarious situations. Mostly, they wind up ending in my favour. You know how they say life begins at the end of your comfort zone? Well... my comfort zone is sometimes all but a dot to me.

April Beauty Favourites

April beauty favourites korean beauty blogger
Well it's been a hot minute since I've done a monthly favourites. Especially a beauty favourites post. Usually I'm a creature of habit, the way I do my makeup hasn't really changed that much since I started wearing it at 15 (though I ditched the solid blue eyeshadow haa, how embarrassing), and it's hard to test out new products month on month when you don't have a lot of disposable income. Or are chronically bad at saving... 

But! I guess that's changed for April. Mostly because I've been in a position where I can buy a lot more (yay employment), but also because I'm back in Korea and there is so much choice. A vast ocean of affordable choice. 

Also the fact that I had to have a major declutter of basically everything I owned before I moved has probably helped the fact I actually needed new things - apparently my hoarding tendencies also span to both skincare and beauty too, who knew?? - and when the the temptation is there, I have very little self control. (Yes that is probably a bad thing, I am aware.)

Anyway, if you're up for reading a slightly late beauty favourites post, then here we go!
