I’m a minimalist through and through: not only that, I’m a big fan of the colors black, grey, white, and camel (with some blue). My penchant for brighter color comes in accents, like scarves, handbags, and sometimes makeup. The Skincare Guru can’t stand that I have so many clothes in those four colors, but hey, that’s just my thing.

Two weeks from yesterday (Friday the 4th), I will be in Tokyo celebrating my birthday weekend at the Grand Hyatt (which, of course, I’ll write about after I return). Making these plans got me thinking about the places I still want to stay at here in South Korea, and, really, I’ve been thinking about this since my last staycation adventures.

When this blog post goes live it will be March here. March in Korea means two things:

1) My birthday is coming up! I’m past the point where I should start lying about my age…totally kidding, I’m okay with turning asjdhkfa.

2) It’s the final stretch to Fashion Week here!

So in my last post I briefly mentioned that I bought way too much stuff, but it’s okay because it’s all for the good of my skin is what I tell myself. Two of the products came recommended from the skincare guru herself: Mom.

Every time Lauren comes into town, we find ourselves strolling down Garosu-gil (가로수길), one of the trendiest streets in Seoul. When it’s warm, the main avenue is teeming with people: when it’s cold…it’s teeming with people in fashionable outerwear.

Cold winters tend to run many of us ragged, both mentally and physically. If you’re especially located in a place where it snows a lot (with there’s little sunlight), it can totally dampen your mood…well, at least that’s what it does to me. My 4th and final winter in Chicago tore me up to the point where I just had enough. “I can’t do it,” I told one of my friends. “I’m finally tired of being here. Once I finish my thesis, I’m going somewhere else.” That somewhere else was Seoul.

After spending Christmas at home I began my trek to Busan. I took the KTX, of course, since I wanted to make the most of the 2 days I had there.

One 2.5 hour train ride, one 30-minute bus ride, one ill-timed disembarkation and one unintentional 15-minute walk later, I finally arrived at the Park Hyatt.
