The purpose of our adventure was to visit the traditional streets at Bukchon Hanok Village, but can you blame me for ending up on a hunt for adorable Korean stationery instead? I first went to Object back in 2017 whenContinue reading “Object – Adorable Stationery Store in Anguk, Seoul”
I’m calling it. Remote working just doesn’t work in South Korea. I’m a month into my remote working journey. I’m surprised, confused, proud and exhausted that I’ve made it this far.

I have had an odd couple of days at home hereContinue reading “Yeah, this isn’t going well — Working remotely in South Korea”

This is more of an internet journal entry for things that I loved watching during the week, things that I have been listening to and things I have been thinking about. It is extremely cathartic and I have finished 3 issues so far.
I read that this summer has one of the hottest heat waves in 111 years! This week, I decided to film myself in my bedroom styling clothes that I love. It’s one of the secret things that I do that nobody knows about but it brings me a lot of joy. I have been doing this since I was at LEAST 14.

A few weeks ago, my friend Miranda and I ventured to Ikseongdong and Insadong for an afternoon of exploring. These areas of Seoul are full of Korean Hanok homes and traditional art, clothing and tea houses. You must visit this part of Seoul on your next visit to South Korea.
