Coffee & Cake Date #7: Mug For Rabbit - Garosu-gil - Seoul - South Korea

Mug For Rabbit - Garosu-gil - Seoul - South Korea

Garosu-gil is the go to place in Seoul for hip and trendy cafes, there's just so many places to visit there and so much choice. After visiting Gentle Monster and a bunch of cosmetic stores in the area I was ready for a much needed coffee break so I stumbled upon this rather chic looking place called Mug For Rabbit.

Mug For Rabbit - Garosu-gil - Seoul - South Korea

I loved the quiet, relaxed atmosphere and the rosemary cheese scone I ordered along with my regular iced Americano was one of the best scones I had ever eaten, even the free orange flavoured water they provided was sweet and refreshing to. It was definitely a nice break from the busy shops and I spent at least a couple hours there just enjoying the peacefulness before I set of to do more shopping. It's definitely a place I'd recommend visiting if you need a break from all the craziness.

หลังจากช้อปปิ้งตอนเช้าฉันหิวกาแฟเข้าคาเฟ่ที่เรียกว่า Mug For Rabbit อยู่สบายมันเงียบดี กาโรซูกิลมีหลายคาเฟ่แต่คาเฟ่นี้มีสโคนอร่อย ฉันสั่งสโคนดอกโรสแมรี่กับชีสและกาแฟเย็นและมีน้ำดื่มฟรีใส่ส้มสดชื่นมาก ถ้าเหนื่อยเข้าคาเฟ่นี้ไปนั่งสบายๆ


What's your favourite places to visit when you need a break from city life?

The 'Game of Thrones' Tag


Game of Thrones is a pretty big obsession of mine which you if you've been following me for a while you probably already know. The next season won't be out until 2019 so I've no idea what I'm going to do with my life during the long absence especially now I've finished reading all the books and have no idea when George will drop "The Winds of Winter". So I was browsing the internet and found this Game of Thrones tag on Underland to Wonderland and thought it would be fun to share and pass on to my fellow Thrones fans.


** SPOILER WARNING!! I've watched all the current series and read all the books so if you're not that far in and don't want to know what happens then skip this post! **




Which season did you start watching and what got you into it? 

I had heard about this great new fantasy series but wasn't sure what it was so I tuned into the premiere out of curiosity and was instantly hooked! Strangely enough the show didn't really start to get popular until much later in the U.K. I even remember having a conversation with Finn Jones at a convention after season one had aired about how sad it was that it wasn't more popular, little did we know how much things would change in just a few months... 

Books or TV Show?

The show was my first glimpse into this world but as soon as season 1 finished I devoured all the books. There's aspects of both the books and the TV show I love and hate so I can't chose a favourite but I'd definitely recommend any fan of the show read the books and vice versa.


You are born into one of the noble houses, which is it?

HOUSE STARK! I mean it's pretty obvious that I just felt an affinity to this house since the very beginning, maybe it was my love for wolves that started it all but I think I hold a similar moral code to House Stark (and stubbornness) so they just feel like family to me and I see a lot of myself in the characters to especially Sansa and Arya.

If you could have one of either a Dragon or a Dire Wolf, which would you chose and why?

This is tough because both would be pretty cool to have, I'd love to fly around on a dragon but I'd also love to warg into a giant wolf. I'll have to go with my heart though and pick Dire Wolf but I definitely wouldn't say no to a pet Dragon.



What has been the saddest death for you?

Any Dire Wolf death is heartbreak for me but I think the saddest human death for me was Hodor, everything about that scene just broke my heart...

Out of those dead, or presumed dead, who would you bring back and why? 

I'll probably go for characters I liked but didn't really get the chance to know so Renly and Robb, I think these two characters would work pretty well together and I would have been curious to see what the realm would have been like under their reign.

Who were you most happy to see killed?

Stannis Baratheon, I've never been a fan on his and after what he did to Shireen he got what he deserved and I'm glad it was my girl Brienne who served him justice even though it was somewhat ambiguous on screen. Of course Walder Frey needs to be mentioned to as it was done in such a badass way GO ARYA and of course another person on her hit list I have to mention now because he's the arsehole who started this whole mess Littlefinger. 

Who do you think would make the best spouse?

Obviously Jon Snow is top of my list not just for the obvious reasons but because he has a good strong heart and I would feel totally safe with him and Ghost at my side but another honourable mention has to go to Samwell Tarley I mean look at how he takes care of Gilly and the baby even though he has no real obligation to, he's a really good guy which is somewhat rare in the world of Game of Thrones.

Out of all methods used to kill on the show, which would you rather use to kill and which to be killed by?

No brutal death for me please, I'd probably go out Olenna style by dropping a bombshell then drifting off in to a poison induced "forever sleep" BUT the method I'd chose to kill people by would probably be dragon fire...

Tell us your favourite quote from the show.


If you're a Game of Thrones fan feel free to do this tag and link it to me in the comments!

Cute & Geeky Dresslily Wishlist


Dresslily despite its name sells a lot more than dresses, you can find anything from fashion, to make-up, to homeware, and there's just so many different products it's easy to spend hours browsing. So I thought I would save you a little time searching through the thousands of products and share a few of my fave nerdy finds.

♥ Kitten Backpack - This bag is just too cute not to mention! I love it because it reminds me of Luna from Sailor Moon who is one of my fave anime characters ever. I'm also loving how versatile it is with the detachable straps that allow it to be worn as either a backpack or shoulder bag.

♥ Plush Doughnut Shape Pillow - The homeware nerd in me has been loving cushions lately but of course not any old cushions, novelty cushions! I mean who doesn't love donuts? They're both delicious and cute although I can see if I had this it would give me constant sweet cravings.

♥ Ombre Mermaid Makeup Brushes - How cute are these makeup brushes? It's been forever since I bought new makeup brushes and these naturally caught my eye because of the adorable pastel colour and mermaid design, they would look awesome in any makeup collection.

♥ Bat Print Plus Size Halloween Sweatshirt -  Batman prints probably make up half of my wardrobe and it has been forever since I added to it but one can never have enough bat clothing! The design of this sweatshirt is so cool with the comic print sleeves and melting bat symbol and it looks super comfy and warm to. This is a great time of year to stock up on bat goods and Dresslily actually has a really amazing Halloween collection I've been lusting over to.

♥ Lace-Up Winged Led Luminous Boots - These are the shoes of my dreams not only do they light up but they have wings... WINGS!! I have been looking for shoes like this for the longest time I mean they're amazing, I need them in my life already!!

♥ Police Box Coffee Mug - I love this mug because it reminds me of the Tardis but pretty much all police boxes do now. I've been feeling a bit nostalgic for Doctor Who lately and missing my Dad and I's nerdy TV nights so I'm looking forward to the new series and new Doctor and this mug would be a perfect pairing for my tea and Jammie Dodgers.

What are your favourite cute and geeky items?

Zaful Review, Haul & Try-on

Zaful Haul & Try On

Zaful got in touch with me a few months ago asking if I'd like to try out a few of their products in exchange for a review so after checking out their website and seeing all the amazing clothing from pretty white lace cover up to chic striped blouses and how affordable they were I of course said yes! Zaful gave me between $30 - $35 to spend on the site so I tried to get as many different items as I could so I could show you the wide range and quality of the items they offer.

Zaful Haul & Try On

I did have a slight problem as two months had passed since my package was shipped and it hadn't arrived yet so I checked the tracking number and asked in various post offices if they knew where it was but they didn't seem to know anything. So I got in touch with my contact at Zaful again and explained the problem to them and they very kindly offered to send me another package so I re-ordered what items were still available and some new ones and thankfully it arrived safely to me in just 10 days along with the original package I thought was lost, so that was pretty lucky!

Zaful Haul & Try On

Zaful actually surprised me not only with their great customer service but the quality of the clothing as it exceeded my expectations considering how cheap and affordable the items are. I've had some pretty bad experiences with similar websites in the past with the clothing looking nothing like the photos as well as the sizes being completely off but I was happy to see how honest Zaful are at presenting their items. Everything fit me and my aesthetic so perfectly that it's hard to pick a favourite item because I love them all, I've pretty much been living in that grey sweater since it arrived as it's super comfy and perfect for cooler days.

Zaful Haul & Try On

Honestly I've been feeling in a fashion rut lately and thinking about getting a whole new wardrobe so this gave me a great opportunity to try out some fun new styles and play dress up. It's definitely a shop I will re-visit and purchase from as they have such a wide range of styles and sizes to suit everyone (even plus sizes!) and these outfits total less than $30 each which is a complete bargain! So if you're looking for some awesome affordable clothing I would definitely recommend you check them out and big thanks to Zaful for allowing me to review these gorgeous items.


What's your favourite item from my haul?

My ETSY SHOP IS OPEN & GIVEAWAY!!!

Marvel Kawaii Chibi Figure Necklace

Good news everyone my Etsy Shop is open YEY! I thought with the holidays coming up I would offer whatever crafts I have left in stock for sale so I can share the cuteness and hopefully save up some money to go visit the family as I'm starting to miss them again. Unfortunately I won't be able to do any custom orders and there won't be any re-stocks or new products as I just don't have the time or resources to do that here in Thailand but there's still lots of cute scarves and jewellery available to buy and I'll be including freebies with every purchase.


Speaking of freebies to celebrate the re-opening of my shop I've decided to host a giveaway for one of my most popular designs the fox scarf.  Winter is coming so I thought this would be a nice gift to keep you cute, warm and toasty during the colder months so if you want to be in with a chance of winning this scarf check out the widget below for details...

Cute & Geeky Backpack Wishlist


Cute and geeky bags have always been my thing, ever since I was a little kid I would always pick something fun over something practical. There's just something about a cute bag that just makes you feel happy and if you need to carry a bunch of stuff around you all day why not have something that makes you smile with you? Thankfully quirky bags seem to be in style now so there's choices galore and even the designer brands are making them, so here are just a few that have caught my eye recently...


♥ Neko Atsume Crossbody Bag* - Although I've never played this game I just can't resist the kawaii, I mean how cute is this bag? It even looks like kitty is hugging you when you carry it which is such a cute idea I love it!

♥ Loungefly Pokémon Goldeen Mini Backpack - As soon as I saw this Goldeen design I fell in love it's absolutely stunning, it's totally understated geek chic! So if you don't want to be too obvious and carry a Pikachu shaped backpack around with you but still want to show off your fandom then Loungefly has you covered.

♥ Reptar Back Buddy Backpack - Rugrats was one of my favourite 90's cartoons so I was so happy to find this totally awesome backpack and it's such a great size to I mean it may not be "Reptar-size" but there's room for a laptop or tablet in there.

♥ Kate Spade Whimsies T-Rex Crossbody - I'm a big dinosaur fan if you didn't already know and I absolutely adore this Kate Spade bag. Kate Spade actually has some really cute designs but they're just a little out of my budget so I'll just admire them from afar...

♥ UFO Star Pattern Iridescent Cute Backpack - Aliens are another one of my obsessions (I even visited Area 51) so this bag is just perfect for me, not only is it UFO shaped but it's holographic to give you that extra space vibe.


What's your favourite cute or nerdy bag?

Dance Your way through fall -- Plus size party choices


Let’s be complete honest: No one enjoys returning to work after the lovely summer holidays. But no matter what, the summer is gone and we won’t be able to stop it. What should I do? Remain calm during the whole autumn and wait for Christmas? Seems boring for me. I need to escape. I need to dance until all my pressure disappear.

I found these party dresses from ROSGAL that would help me and probably help you out if you feels the same as me. Let dance our way through this autumn!

  

Black lace dresses are my personal favorite of the classic dresses. Black is a sexy color, even more sexy when it combines with the lace sheer sleeve. I’m so satisfied they add lots of details on the sleeve.

 

White is a classy ,clean color. Put different color‘s stripes on it, it becomes fun to wear. Suitable for in or out. A nice choice for dance & party lovers. This adorable dresses only cost $9 at the moment. Get it now.

  



Elegant style matches it’s color. The flare print is well detailed. Vintage is always charming and attractive. With flower prints, it reaches a new level.

Coffee & Cake Date #6: Cafe Yung - Samcheong-dong - Seoul - South Korea

Cafe Yung - Samcheong-dong - Seoul - South Korea

Whilst in Korea it's a must to visit a traditional tea house and Cafe Yung, in the area of Samcheong-dong know for it's traditional yet trendy buildings is the perfect mix of old and new. Samcheong-dong is quite possibly one of my favourite places in Seoul as you can see the old style Korean buildings yet a lot of the interior of the cafes, shops and galleries are quite hip and modern so it's an area definitely worth checking out.

Cafe Yung - Samcheong-dong - Seoul - South Korea

On my last visit to Korea I became addicted to hotteok (호떡) a sweet Korean pancake that's most commonly eaten in winter so on my return there in spring I was sad to find that they're weren't as many street vendors selling them so when I saw them on Cafe Yung's menu I had to order them. To keep it traditional and because I love trying new things I also ordered sujeonggwa (수정과) which is a cinnamon iced tea punch and it was so nice and refreshing, I'll definitely try it again!

Cafe Yung - Samcheong-dong - Seoul - South Korea

เกาหลีมีหลายบ้านชาโบราณ ซัมซองดงเป็นสถานที่ท่องเที่ยวเวลาอยากดูบ้านโบราณเกาหลี Cafe Yung เป็นเก่าแต่ทันสมัยและมีขนมแบบเกาหลีฉันชอบกินมากที่สุด ฉันสั่งชาอบเชยและแพนเค้กเกาหลีและอร่อยและสดชื่น เมื่อคุณเยี่ยมชมเกาหลีคุณต้องไปที่บ้านชาโบราณ

What's your favourite Korean dessert?

Anime I'm Watching & Loving!

Nendoroid

Rainy season has been the perfect time for me to catch up on some anime, I've binged watched my way through several series and I've almost caught up on my watchlist. I thought I would include some movies this time because I know not everyone has the time to invest in watching a whole series and there's some pretty damn awesome anime movies out there which deserve a mention to so I hope you find something on this list that appeals to you.

言の葉の庭
Takao, a high school student who dreams of becoming a shoemaker encounters a mysterious older woman on a rainy day in Shinjuku Gyoen, they begin to form a relationship which revolves around their unplanned rainy day meetings in the same garden but the rainy season is coming to an end and there's still so much that they don't know about each other and so much left unsaid. This is such a beautiful but melancholy short movie that randomly appeared on my watch list and I'm so glad it did because for starters the animation is absolutely stunning. I love it when animation focus on the small details and aspects of nature like raindrops and leaves blowing in the wind and this anime did that so perfectly and beautifully it added to the mood and atmosphere of the move so well. Although you don't really learn too much about the characters (it's only 45 minutes long!) they're very real and I did relate to their struggles with life and society. I will admit the ending is kind of cliche but I did feel a little teary, definitely give this one a go though it's worth it just to see how beautifully the rain is animated.

君の名は
A teenage boy from Tokyo city and girl from rural Itomori wake up to find they've magically switched bodies and after having such an impact on each others lives they embark on a quest to finally meet each other in person. This movie is definitely worth all the hype, it's absolutely beautiful and I really loved the storyline and even found myself tearing up at the end. Thankfully I hadn't read too much about this movie before I watched it so the "twist" was a surprise to me and really added to the emotion of the story and the characters, the "twilight scene" was probably one of my favourite scenes in the movie and if you have no idea what I'm talking about then just go watch this movie right now!

ジョーカー・ゲーム
Joker Game follows the story of a group of elite trained spies who are part of a special secret agency set on missions around the world to uncover intel prior to Japan's inevitable involvement in WWII. It's been a while since I watched a historical, espionage type anime and watching this reminded me just how much I enjoy and miss watching spy dramas. In fact I ended up watching the whole series in one day and I think 12 episodes was way to short for the amount of characters involved in the story so I hope it gets another season.

ノーゲーム・ノーライフ
Sora and Shiro are sibling NEETs obsessed with the world of gaming, after a strange email challenging them to game a chess they are transported to a world which is run by games. I've been meaning to watch this anime for the longest time after hearing many positive things about it I'm kicking myself for not watching it sooner because it's just so colourful and fun and Shiro is absolutely adorable AND they even referenced Ace Attorney which is one of my favourite games ever! I really loved the world they were in but I suck at all forms of gaming so I probably wouldn't survive as well as Sora and Shiro...

進撃の巨人
This needs no introduction as I think by now everyone is already caught up on the latest Attack on Titan and is eagerly awaiting season 3 which is apparently due out next year so thank the gods we don't have to wait another 4 years!! I devoured this season far too quickly... I watched all 12 episodes in one go with all the goddamn cliffhangers I just couldn't stop myself! I really enjoyed this season though and the reveal of the Titans had me on edge although I will say one thing which I say all the time NOT ENOUGH LEVI!!

What anime series have you been enjoying recently?

KPop Fangirling in Seoul - K-Star Road - SM - JYP & More

KPop in Seoul (SM Entertainment COEX)

KPop has been one of guilty pleasures for the longest time and since moving to Thailand my passion for all things KPop seems to have been re-ignited because it's everywhere in fact I think KPop is more popular than actual Thai music! I decided on my recent trip to Seoul to stay in the Gangnam area and explore all the KPop hotspots, shops and cafes in the area, in fact the guesthouse where I stayed was decorated in all things KPop to so I was in fangirl heaven.

KPop in Seoul (Hallyu K-Star Road)

First stop in Seoul for any K-Pop fan is Hallyu K-Star Road which is a stretch of road between Apgujeong and Cheongdam where you can find "Gangnam Dolls" decorated to celebrate the various popular KPop groups and some are even signed by the artists themselves. It's a very cute Korean take on the Hollywood Walk of Fame and next to Apujeong Rodeo Station (exit 7) you can even find a little tourist information booth selling miniature versions and magnets of the dolls should you want to take one home, unfortunately they didn't have a mini VIXX one for me to buy though...

KPop in Seoul (SM Entertainment - Sum Cafe)

S.E.S. and BoA were probably my first encounters with KPop so SM Entertainment has a soft spot in my fangirl heart. SM has a couple places you can visit one in COEX  where you can see all the awards and costumes from their artists as well as shop and they have a cafe where I had that rather delicious Girls' Generation cupcake you see pictured above the second place is about 10 minutes walk up the road and has a shop, cafe and restaurant which I would've eaten at had I not just devoured a burger at Shake Shack in Gangnam...

KPop in Seoul (Shake Shack)

Shake Shack has become very popular in Korea and although I had previously tried them in London I had to visit the Gangnam branch and try their mushroom burger and I know you're wondering what this has to do with Kpop right? Well... my main reason for this visit was because I saw GOT7 visit here in and episode of Hard Carry TV and GOT7 are one of my loved KPop groups EVER!! Luckily though I didn't have to queue to get in like they did so my appetite was satisfied quite quickly.

KPop in Seoul (JYP)

Being a big fan of GOT7, 2PM, Wonder Girls and most recently Day6 I had to pay a visit to JYP which is a lot smaller than I thought but they are moving to bigger offices very soon. There were lot's of teenage girls hanging around outside all waiting for a glimpse of their favourite idols so I didn't stop there for long I decided to explore around and see what cafes and restaurants were in the area that the idols might frequent, also I felt a little bit out of place surrounded by teenage girls considering I'm almost twice their age! Another thing I noticed about Seoul was that they have birthday signs dedicated to idols at almost every bus and train stop, when I first got to Seoul there was a sign for my GOT7 bias Jackson which made me overly excited and pretty much put me in that fangirl mode for the rest of my trip. There's so many more KPop destinations to visit in Seoul (I actually visited Jellyfish to because VIXX) but I might save them for my next visit, I'd also love to go to a KPop concert in Korea one day to because I bet that would be a crazy experience!


Do you like KPop? What are some of your favourite artists?

Asian Dramas I'm Watching & Loving!

last life in the universe

Since returning from Korea I've been watching an endless amount of K-Dramas, there seems to be a new one released every week that I want to watch. One of the things I've started to realise is that I really do love watching romance dramas and maybe I am a bit of a romantic afterall because even with all the drama and tragedy they always end up making me feel really good and warm inside... it's strange how much things can change I never ever thought I'd be calling myself a romantic...

연금술사
I recently watched an interview with Young Ji (KARA) saying that she wants to marry Lee Dong Wook after seeing him in Goblin (don't we all?) and she mentioned how he's been helping her with her acting which got me curious to see what her acting is like so I stumbled across this little web drama from 2015. Young Ji (yes that's her name in the drama to) upon starting university falls in love with a guy at first sight which leads her to join a secret society who has banned dating and romance in the hope that she might get to know him a bit better. The cast are so cute and adorable and Young Ji is very funny, it's only a short drama so watching this made a nice little fun break between the more heavy dramas, so if you're looking for a giggle definitely check this one out.


여인의 향기
Lee Yeon Jae a single woman in her mid-thirties, who has spent most of her life working hard for a company who doesn't appreciate her suddenly get diagnosed with cancer and decides to live the remaining 6 months of her life without care and too the fullest. From the start I knew this drama was going to be a sad one and it was but at the same time I really enjoyed it to, I watched it for Lee Dong Wook but I stayed for Kim Sin-A who did an amazing job and made me both laugh and cry. I like to binge watch my dramas but it took me a while to finish this one because of all high emotions and the subject it dealt with but at the same time I loved the humour and the romance which was incrediably sweet, you'll definitely need tissues if you watch this!


역도요정 김복주
This is a coming of age drama about a group of young athletes training to succeed in their fields and find a healthy balance between career, love and life. After watching Scent of a Woman I was so happy to find a drama that was so much fun and light-hearted, it was such an easy watch and the cast are so sweet and funny, whilst it did deal with some heavy issues of the struggles of youth such as finding love, body image and family it was done in such a way that wasn't too heavy handed or overtly dramatic. I loved the relationship between Lee Sung-kyun and Nam Joo-hyuk, it was incredibly cute and it was nice to see the stereotypical strong protective male role reversed showing that women can be strong and protective not just emotionally but physically.

Coffee Prince is probably one of the most popular KDramas of all time so I probably don't even need to tell you to watch it because you probably already have. As great as Gong Yoo was in Goblin I just didn't get the hype around him and then my friend told me to watch Coffee Prince and now I totally get it and I totally get why this drama is so popular. So if you haven't got round to watching this drama (it was only released ten years ago!) then do go ahead and watch this classic.


신데렐라와 네 명의 기사
Eun Ha-Won is a high-school student who works multiple part-time jobs in order to save up money to go to college, she meets Hyun-Min a rich, arrogant, playboy who hires her to pretend to be his fiance for the night in order to ruin his grandfather's wedding but his grandfather actually find's himself so impressed with Eun Ha-Won's way of dealing with his grandsons that he hires her to move into a house with them and unite his three grandsons under the condition that she cannot date any of them. This drama isn't anything new when it comes to plot or characters but I really enjoyed it, Eun Ha-Won is so adorable and I was really rooting for her.

What series have you been watching and loving lately?
