Happy Halloween y’all! I hope you guys were spending the past Halloween Weekend with lots of fake blood, scary (and/or equally sexy) costumes and lots of fun! I decided to take it slow this year since my reverse culture shock is still hitting me hard. Seeing all my friends have fun in Seoul – the Halloween Capital of Asia – made me feel kind of homesick. What a good thing then that my Korean friends decided to spend some time with me, lots of beer and good Korean food! Continue reading “Spending Halloween At Home”

Confessions of a Partygirl: Drunk Sex in Love Motels

Let’s talk about something I am definitely not proud of and Mom, Dad, if you are reading this – feel free to close this window as soon as you can.

Before I came to Korea I had already heard of the legendary Lovemotels you find around every corner. They usually look like a shitty building, with tinyass windows, curtains at the parking lots (you will understand why) and even weirder names. Even though Korean socitey is becoming more and more westernized, talking about sex or even the existance of it is still a big cultural taboo. And since many young Koreans live at home with their parents or in one of the gender-seperated dormitories – having some one-on-one quality time with your significant other can become quite difficult. You might have seen this on a night out before: Continue reading “Confessions of a Partygirl: Drunk Sex in Love Motels”

Seoul Fashion Week 2017 – My Favorite Looks

 

Issa Wrap! One thing I love about living in Seoul is the annual Seoul Fashion Week – an event where designers showcase their newest collections and a chance for all of us non-celebrities out there to show off what we hide in our closets. No – seriously – some of my friends start planning their outfits for these six days filled with edgy leather, fancy sequins and soft velvet weeks in advance. And I get it – It’s a time for all the free spirits to come together. To see and to be seen. What a shame I had to hop on a plane to Europe the week before! But thanks to Instagram and Pinterest it is never too late to find some fashion inspo from the other side of the world and two trends have definitely caught my eye this season.

The Cute Girls Of Seoul – And Why I Don’t Want To Be One Of Them

If you ask some of my university friends back home about me, they would probably describe me in three words: Cute. Sweet. Pink. And to some extend that is true. Give me some chocolate, seat me in front of a Disney movie and I’ll turn into a clingy, whiny little girl again. But don’t you dare expect to the see the same person in me now, after ten months of living abroad. Granted – I still wear my pink backpack when I go to a Hello Kitty Cafe. But after all those months of clubbing, drinking and lots of dating, I realized: The feminist in me doesn’t want to be called cute anymore.

My Instagram has been recently filled with this photos of yummy Burgers and greasy Cheese Fries, all made in one specific restaurant: Shake Shack! For all of you non-Americans out there like me who had no freaking idea about this place, let me enlighten you real quick: If you want a legit burger that reminds you of one of those amazing BBQs you had with your family during the summer, drop everything and get your ass over here asap. Heaven is nothing compared to this! Continue reading “Now Trending: Shake Shack in Korea!”
