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”
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.

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!”
If you read my last article about getting my first Tattoo in Korea, you know how hooked I got on getting more! Before I got the venus symbol on my wrist I actually planned on getting a small tattoo on the side of my finger. I mean … have you seen Ariana’s super cute BABY DOLL Tattoo or Rihanna’s legendary Shhh…? The first time I saw them I instantly knew: I want that too. A Tattoo small enough not to be noticed that easily but still visible enough to make a statement. So shortly after I got my first Tattoo, I returned to Ida’s studio in Itaewon to get it handpoked by her sweet co-worker Baka. Continue reading “I got a Fingertattoo … and everyone was against it”
I love Hip Hop. Whether it’s underground Korean Hip Hop or Tyga’s newest album- chances are you will see me dressed in one of my favorite baseball caps and a crop top twerking with my girls in our favorite Hip Hop Club. And while I’m jamming with my friend to 3 X In a Row right now (an oldie but a goodie – anyone with me here?!) it automatically threw me back to one of the worst party nights ever which … you guessed it … took place at one of Seoul’s most famous Hip Hop Clubs.
It was during those last warm nights in October when my girlfriends and I decided to spoil ourselves with a legendary party night in Hongdae – and with that I mean getting a table with a shit ton of booze feeling like badass bitches blowing their pocket money for the weekend. The night started like a usual Saturdaynight: We hopped on the sub later than expected, pregamed with Tequila shots at a random bar in Sinchon and showed up to the club last minute before the guest list closed. I already started falling head over heels for pretty much every good-looking boy that we passed by, making me feel like a hormone driven teenager again. Little did I know – those guys were only the appetizers for the main dishes waiting inside. Continue reading “Confessions of a Party Girl: A Night Out Between K-Pop Look-alikes and Party Pills”
Being a rebellious 20-something years old in the 21st century you might guess: Getting tattooed has always been a plan of mine and when I accompanied a friend to her tattoo appointment last year, I realized: It’s about time to finally tick that point off my bucketlist.
My friend had found a young, energetic and talented artist on Instagram named Ida, who had raised in popularity after being interviewed in the i-D documentary ‘Grace Neutral Explores Korea’s Illegal Beauty Scene’. So needless to say, I was super pumped when I first stepped foot into Ida’s studio, located in one of the unknown side streets in Itaewon.
