The Hunt

Do you ever want an item so much you're willing to travel to get it? Since moving to Korea, ordering online can sometimes be a bit of a pain. Certain sites won't accept international credit cards, some sites only online payments through a check card... the list goes on. And let me tell you, Korea does not make online banking easy.

Anyways, thank God for Zara's "Find In Store" function. I don't know what I'd do without it. I originally saw this post on Zara's website, and figured I'd order it and ship it to Canada. It reminded me of the Fendi Monster bags (I want you so much), but at a much lower price point, and without looking too similar. While the Monsters are cute, I don't want to pay that much for a novelty bag. Too bad the Zara version sold out within a few days in Canada. 

Luckily, Zara Korea still had it... but I had no credit card! Seriously, I sent them two emails to see if there was any way I could pay online without one. Gift card? Nope. Bank transfer? Nope.

And so, I decided to go on a hunt.

My Favourite Summer Trend - Off the Shoulder

As you may have guessed, I've been obsessed with the 2016 summer trends this year. But my favourite is definitely the off the shoulder trend. It's subtly sexy, and perfect for the beach (and the hot, humid weather that Korea calls summer). Here's my favourite picks – from dresses to rompers, I want them all. What can I say, you can't go wrong baring a bit of shoulder (okay, you can go wrong, but only if you care about people staring here).

As a general rule, I try not to follow trends too much. This summer though... that's not happening. I've been loving everything that's come out - off the shoulder tops, culottes, lace up, tassel sandals, and now crop flares, which I didn't actually think would look as good on me as they do. Here, I combined four major summer trends - cropped flare denim, an off the shoulder top, tassel sandals and my new favourite hairstyle, the half up bun. I actually kind of want to buy a neckerchief (probably the one trend I haven't wanted to jump on), because let's face it, it would look awesome with this outfit.

At Long Last... The Beach

How lovely is it to live an hour and a half away from a beach? I've been craving some relaxation time, and it's been showing in my shopping – off shoulder tops, sundresses and coverups galore. When I saw this top on the Zara website I had to have it. It didn't matter that it was an extra $20 here in Korea compared to Canada (usually the exchange rate and duties tacked on to Zara pieces are pretty reasonable, but this top... hot damn!). Either way, I had to have it (along with a few other super trendy pieces you'll be seeing soon) since I knew I'd be going to the beach for Memorial Day.

Review: Etude House Bubble Tea Sleeping Masks

How cute are these? Etude House launched their Bubble Tea Sleeping packs in three different "flavours" meant for different skin types. Black tea for firming, strawberry for moisturizing and green tea for oil control. There's boba capsules that contain the main hydrating ingredients and a little straw/spoon to scoop everything out hygienically.

So, as cute as they are, how did they perform?
