Finally, post incessant music choice dilemmas and nostalgia-inducing replays, here's my short but sweet Seoul video diary. Missing barbecue beef, red-bean ice, our korean pals at 7-11 and my goofy friends terribly. You can see the grainier, un-moving film photo version of our trip here. Oh, and you can also win a beautiful necklace if you scroll down a bit. I'm getting ready for my London move (a week left!) so excuse the absence, you can see a bit more of me on instagram but only if you'd like to.
Also, here's a little giveaway for you guys! One winner will receive the necklace below from Bunny Be Cool. Good luck! x
Because these photos were taken in 1998, but not really (I had just accidentally pressed on the date presets on my camera). And also because I have never done a shoot in a bathtub - if you haven't noticed already, I am not Cara Delevingne, let alone Ms. Moss) - or next to a bowl of broccoli in Cheryl's kitchen. But mostly because these clothing pieces from Aussie label The Fifth are all I wear these days, and shoots are best done at best friends' houses before uni-farewell sleepovers. And I don't know about you guys but sleepovers for us are a KFC greased, laugh-filled affair, and though i opted for pyjamas over timberlands, it was nice to play dress-up before everyone else started to arrive.
Warning: major jpeg diarrhoea ahead. During the last days of July, i spent 5 days in Seoul with some of my closest friends. Below are photos Cheryl and i managed to snap with our film cameras amidst Seoul's curiously photogenic streets, but i'm still holding onto the moments that, albeit were less photogenic but equally as memorable. Think midnight 7-11 runs in hotel slippers, hungry mosquito-accompanied hikes down from the N Seoul Tower, 1am fried chicken calls, accidental highway expeditions, and makgeolli...lots of it. I'll post a short video diary at the end of the week for you guys as well, but in the meantime enjoy some stills, and for more Seoul snaps you can check out my instagram. Thanks to everyone who sent me recommendations before and during our trip, you all helped me fall in love with the city and i'm sure i'll be back very soon.
