Korea Diary 1 : Arriving and Shopping Haul

It feels like forever ago that I last posted, but it's only been a few days! As you can probably guess from the name of this post I have arrived safely in Korea :) Despite my deep deep hatred of long haul flights (I die of boredom and discomfort) the two flights (7 and 8 hours) weren't too bad. I actually managed to sleep for 6 hours during the last one! Although I did wake up with neck cramp due to my weird plane seat position. On the second flight there was a young toddler in front of me, I was about to give up on my sanity because in all my experience babies cry on planes, no exceptions, but this little toddler fell right to sleep for 8 hours and woke up just before landing. It was incredible!


Yesterday I had a lazy day (still being jet lagged) I met my friends friends and we went out for an evening meal and then some drinks (although the bar only had beer, which I hate > . <). So far the food in Korea has been SO YUMMY, I'm never entirely sure what I'm ordering, but it's always nice. Before I arrived I had awful visions of still squirming squid and unidentifiable deep sea fishes. But so far everything has been gorgeous *getting hungry whilst thinking of food*.

Today was meant to be a quiet shopping day/explore of the streets around my hotel. Instead it turned into a crazy shopping spree during which I spent nearly all of the money I exchanged at the airport and had to get more out... :S But at least I can justify it by remembering that I haven't shopped properly in months because I've been saving so I can go a bit crazy whilst I'm here :P


Be prepared for a rather long haul...


This bag is sooooo cute! I've been wanting a satchel for ages to carry my uni work in :)


My one true love, in necklace form, I adore the turquoise and gold combination.


I needed a new eyeshadow brush as mine are old and a bit skanky, and this Missha one was just to cute to say no to!


Sheet masks, 5 aloe vera, 5 green tea and one rice :)


Prettiest lipstick packaging ever.


Pretty packaging for a pretty coral!


Everything in the Skin Food shop was too pretty for words.


So very in love with these colours! I can hardly bear to use them and ruin them though!


I chose this after trying every single BB cream in Tony Moly, the salesgirl was following me round with loads of make up remover > . < I felt so bad!


Cupcakes and tea cups!


I've needed a good brow set for ages, and this one looked cute :)


Ah! I can't believe how much stuff I bought! Everything is so cheap over here, but it all adds up in the end :P I also bought some of my friends some presents and I've started gathering a few things for my Korea giveaway ;) But I'm going to keep those a surprise for now.

(Also, I have SO MANY free samples now, I think I'll throw some in as an extra for the giveaway, because I have gazillions!)




Tomorrow the official touristy sight seeing part of my holiday starts, we'll start off with Hwaseong Fortress tomorrow, which I will take lots of pictures of :D But don't worry, the shopping part has not ended yet! Next week we're heading to Seoul for the markets and hopefully some new clothes (and in the meantime I'll be adding to the giveaway :P ).
