The Month of May

Hey guys! How have all of you been doing? First of all, I'm incredibly sorry for the lack of updates. Final exams are coming up soon and I've been terribly busy so please excuse the inactivity for a little longer! I promise I'll get back to updating frequently once school comes to an end! You're all in for a treat because I have exciting plans for my summer vacation-- which includes going to Paris, meeting up with Zoe from FashionAnonymous and attending more events!  I have a string of exciting interviews and street style shoots ready for you guys so stay in tune for some awesome blog posts!

Zara Bermuda shorts, top and silver oxfords. Socks from Room 103/ VVe

My absolute favorite - Apple walnut salad with Ricotta cheese! 

Green juices seem to be the trend these days! 

Lunch with my Dad at Cafe Able in Garosugil!

The weather has been really nice lately here in Seoul so I found myself out in my patio/garden area a lot this month! The furniture was installed just a few weeks ago so I took the initiative to sit outside and get some good old vitamin D in my system while working on homework. I like to come out here as soon as I get back from school so I fix myself a light snack which usually consists of avocado bread, yogurt with berries and nuts and a fruit smoothie. 

Troika - Persistent Illusions
I visited Troika's exhibition at Daelim Museum with my friend Andy this month and I found it extremely fascinating how the three artists incorporated math and engineering into their artwork. I put a few pictures of my favorite installations above so hopefully they inspire you to go check out the exhibition for yourself. I believe they're keeping it up till October so you have plenty of time to go see it if you're interested! I definitely recommend it to anybody regardless if they're interested in art or not because it's more fun than anything else! (Ps. This was my first attempt in making a gif. I hope it wasn't a complete failure.)

After the exhibition, I walked over to the Sewol Memorial set up near City Hall. (시청역 5 번 출구) I felt like it was part of my duty as a Korean to pay respect to the ones lost. I've been meaning to visit for a while and I'm glad that I did it. I still feel somewhat ashamed that I wasn't able to do anything to make a greater change but I send my sincerest condolences to the families affected by the tragedy and I really do pray that the children and other victims are in a better place. The world has suffered a great loss but the Lord has now gained 292 beautiful angels. Rest in peace.

Now here's the big highlight of the month! I was lucky enough to attend the KINFOLK Gathering held by Artment Dep two weeks ago. It was a great experience and I had a wonderful time getting to know everybody there. I was quite surprised and honored when they told me that I was one of their most anticipated guests of the evening. Also, the fact that some people there actually KNEW made me feel very happy. Nowadays, I feel like my blog is actually getting somewhere and I'm very proud of myself and everything I've done to get to this point. Thank you all so much! None of this would have happened without you guys! I love you all very much! 

Top: A-Land, Shorts: Zara, Bracelet: Monday Edition, Bag: Givenchy Pandora Mini

I had my own name placard!!! How cool is that!

This was my first time having Couscous and I fell in love with it! Who knew something as simple as this would taste so good!

The overall environment of the gathering was very warm and cheerful. The people there were incredibly kind and I had wonderful conversations with them. I met a lot of people with interesting careers - ranging from jewelry designers, graphic designers, restaurant owners, and more. I'm really looking forward to the next gathering to get to know even more people!

 A big thanks to Artment Dep for organizing this event and to my lovely father for accompanying me! 

Here are a few photographs from what could have been the best home-cooked meal my dad has ever created. He's very into gourmet cooking and I have to say, this dinner couldn't be beat by anything he's made in the past. This was probably the best thing that went into my mouth after the food from the Kinfolk Gathering. Thanks so much Dad!

My outfit for the Culture Market at Publican Bites last Saturday!

Top and Skirt: Zara , Sneakers: Nike Air Max (Bought at flea market), Bracelet: Monday Edition, Rings: Autor Du Monde Korea

On Saturday, I went to the Culture Market held at Publican Bites! A lot of my favorite brands were selling their items at a discounted price so I decided to take a look. I didn't end up buying anything besides a peony and a drink but I'm glad I went!  I met a lot of great people and it's always great to get some fresh air on the weekends!
