HolikaHolika HAUL~ (+ some stuff from Watson's)

What better way to celebrate getting money.. than spending them? That was exactly my mindset when walking into HOLIKAHOLIKA for the first time yesterday. I wanted to look at stuff for KATIE, but I ended up spending W35.000 on myself. LOL. Sorry Katie.
Here's what I got:
I also went to Watson's, which is where I got the two eyeliners. I lost my beloved NYX Slide on Pencil liner a few weeks ago (obviously when drunk at a club, lol) and since NYX is super expensive here, I wanted to try a new one. 
I got the peripera smoothie waterproof pencil liner which also contains small silver glitters. It was the softest, most pigmented black I could find and it was only W7.000! Score! And let me just tell you.. it IS waterproof indeed. I still can't get it off my hand after doing the swatch. Haha!
I also needed a new liquid liner as my KissMe Heroine was running low and getting a bit patchy. I was gonna get a new one of the KissMe liner, but I found this one with Lee Hyori on it and since it was WAY more black than the KissMe one, I gave it a try. I haven't used any of the products on my face yet, but I'm definitely excited to!
I also got a blush brush (which looks more like a powder brush). It looks a bit rough in the picture (not sure why) but it's SUUUPER soft and only W7.000 as well (from what I can remember).. I actually thought that it'd be a bit smaller, but I guess this could work too. If not for blush - then powder, maybe?
Yay! Lashes! I LOVE my Watson's KISS lashes that were only W4.000 for two pairs, but I keep forgetting what they look like when I'm at the store.. lol, so I got a pair of HolikaHolika lashes as well.. Just to try out! I'm super into this style lately, as they look way more natural than my other ones. I can't find the Gil &... something, lol, that Yinnie got me in China last year. I LOVED those, but yeah.. Where to find? T_T So yeah, I'm trying these : D Pretty, right?
Somehow the sales lady talked me into trying this. It's a foam cleanser.. lol. The name.. "JELLY" Hahaha better buy some for all the haters, huh? : P Just kidding.. but it's supposed to be good for my skin. I was looking at another one and she was like "No no get this one. It'll leave your skin much softer  bla bla Korean words that I didn't pick up lol bla bla". She seemed really happy that we spoke Korean to her, so she kept blabbering forever and ever. Very nice though, very nice lady indeed! Haha!
Now to the best part! BLUSHES! Aren't they just adorable? The colors and packaging.. Ahh~ so nice! I esp. love the lilac color cause it reminds me of my FAVORITE blush ever by e.l.f. cosmetics. It's from their mineral line and it's called "Joy". If you're fair skin, slightly yellow-toned - get it! It's beautiful! I love both of these. They're super soft and only 7,000 per color! I'm probably gonna get all of them. I have a feeling that HOLLYANNAEREE would love these too! Haha! I think there were 5 or 6 colors in total.. I got two of the lightest ones as I'm super pale.. even compared to the Koreans I'm pale. O_O wth.
Last but not least! On the left - FREE SAMPLES YESSSS! Tons of them! Ahh~ I love buying beauty products in Korea.. They always pack your bag with a shit ton of free samples of pretty much anything in the store.. Hoho so nice! I also picked up one sheet mask! Pearl essence - yes please. If you can read Korean, it says 맑은 피부 which basically means "clear skin". But we used to learn 맑다 back in Copenhagen as a word related to the weather ("clear" meaning "no clouds"), so I keep giggling when I see it cause I relate it to "cloud free skin" lol. Stupid, I know.. I like grammar ok. /sobs.

Anyway! That's it! I got my next post arranged already! Got a package from home that I wanna show you guys (along with my beautiful BOY LONDON tshirt) and I also got a wonderful present from Kat and Nezumi! An early Christmas present you could say.. ㅋㅋㅋ Have a lovely weekend and to all my Korean residents: 
해피추석, 여러분! ^__^)/
MUCH LOVE!

YOUR LOVE ISN'T REAL

Long time no see, aye?
I'm sorry it's taken me over a week 3 weeks to post anything. As you could probably guess from my last entry, I've been living life to the fullest - my friends (Kat and Annemette) and I were invited to the MCM x VOGUE Fashion Night Out event on the 6th of September and fuckmehard it was amazing! We were personally introduced by our friend to Key (SHINee), Hyunseung (B2st/BEAST) and Hyungjoon (SS501) - we even had pictures taken with Hyungjoon. So so so cool! And he told me my Korean was good /swoons/ HOHOHO~! I don't have the pictures from MCM yet, because they had a pro photographer take them.. so yeah, we're getting them from our friend eventually, I'm assuming. The party was amazing, I met some epic people, got to talk to the vice president of MCM (and omg she is so stylish!!) and had way too much champagne. /sobs. It was fucking amazing though! You probably (if you stalk any of the aforementioned idols (or Jay Park)) saw me hanging in the background of fancams like this one
or yeah.. something like that : P (I'm the girl with the white hair and denim vest (lol))The amount of Key-fangirls was OVERWHELMING and super scary. They were pushy and looked so mean when we were brought inside where he was .___." Please don't kill me ok. Speaking of Key, that guy is BEAUTIFUL in real life. If you think he's attractive in MVs or photos.. please try to see him irl. He's STUNNING. Same goes for all the other idols actually. I've only seen SuJu members Ryeowook and Eunhyuk as being not-as-attractive-irl.. but other than that everyone else looks AMAZING. I was surprised by how good Hyunseung looks irl! So so so so so handsome. I'm so sad his father passed away yesterday.. All my condolences, Hyunseung~ T_T Please don't be too discouraged.

Other than all that, I've been drinking like a desert for the past two week's time. I've been hungover pretty much all week. Partying non-stop, meeting new people, hanging at Club ESCAPE and Mike's Cabin (in Shinchon.. come say hi!) with my friends and simply just having fun! I had my first uni class on Thursday the 6th (before the event). We were barely there for an hour and then the teacher said "let's not spend all 3 hours today.. I just wanna talk about this class and how there's no class next week. So see you in 2 weeks ok!" LOL. So yeah, no classes until.. well.. 2 weeks after. /sigh. Language school doesn't start until Sep. 27th, so I'm having a dangerous amount of time to kill until then. Which usually ends with me drunk as shit at ESCAPE or somewhere else.. LOL. There was a photographer a few weeks ago there.. I was piss drunk, so if you see any photos from that party, please don't judge me.. -__-" I have no idea how, but I think someone spiked my drink or something. I went from happy and drunk on beer to fucking WASTED so fast, that I can't even.. o__o" So yeah, girls.. be careful ok! Good thing Seonghyuk was there to save my drunken ass and throw some water at me. LOL. He's a good guy! Jun also takes good care of me and their boss is so nice.. So come to Shinchon CLUB ESCAPE if you get the chance. Hit me up somewhere, I'd love to party with y'all! Kekeke.

Anyway.. yeah.. I guess that's it. I'm sorry that my posts are so sporadic (more like "rare", lol). /sobs. I lost followers T_T /creyz. But yeah, I'm trying ok. I just recently was able to update Instagram as well (heygodareyouready), KakaoTalk is a bit troublesome as well (dwaejieolgul) cause the wifi here is shit.. and yeah.. 3G on pre-pay is just a bad idea. It cost me 30,000 won in 4 days. Not good O_O" Tomorrow is my placement test for language school, so I feel a bit obligated to study. Regardless I think level 2 is OK for me.. Hopefully. Oh damn, if I get into beginner's level I will cry T_T my ego can't deal. Haha!

^__^)/ Hang in there, guys! I'll post more as soon as I'm settled with everything.. and started classes.. and yeah.. you know. Here are some random photos for you that I didn't bother tagging because my old laptop is slow as fuck and I don't have photoshop on this one.. ㅋㅋㅋ yeah sorry.. I'm a lazy blogger these days.. Maybe a vlog this week? oOooOoo~

oOooo teaser pic from the event. You probably saw this on Instagram too.

I was hanging out with Stephen in Shinchon yesterday and suddenly these kids appeared out of nowhere and started dancing (too sexily...) to Gangnam Style. -__-" Seriously, Korea.. Seriously..

My first home-cooked meal at the dorm's kitchen! Wooh!

Noms with Winston! Tuna kimbap and ddeokbokki.

Partying w/Mikko! His birthday was on Wednesday, so we got wasted (again) lol

Me on.. uhh.. I don't know? Friday? LOL. Before getting drunk as well. /sigh

Noms at Stephen's parents' restaurant! SO GOOD!

We went to the SISTAR concert too! Their first "real" concert! Mad props. Hyorin is amazing live!

And what I prefer to devour these days w/Nezumi. Burger'n'Shake is love~!

MUCH LOVE YOU GUYS
Until next time

SO BLESSED from UP ABOVE~

hey guys
I want to tell you so many things. I have to leave out a lot of details for two main reasons; 1. I promised this incredible person to not speak of him nor what he showed us (that came out wrong, but I promise you it's not gross like that at all. lol) 2. Safety precautions. I already talked a bit about this on FB to my real life friends and those who are a big part of my life on a daily. I won't reveal anything else to you than what I revealed to them. Only my parents know the full details and the people involved. My friends on FB are already trippin' cause they wanna know who we met on that lovely Friday afternoon so badly. lol. I won't tell you, but let's just say that he's incredibly sweet, very talented and extremely funny.
Anyway, Kat, Nezumi and I went to the MCM store to purchase some of their amazing backpacks. We looked it up online, researched magazines and were so into this that we had to get them. We had simply planned to go to the store, buy the bags and then go back home and chill.. but oh no, that's not how it turned out. Thanks to Kat's EPIC choice of wearing a BIGBANG tshirt, we were approached by this (what we thought to be a "random") person at MCM. He loved Kat's shirt and suddenly we were taken to a café where we tried a special drink (오마자), then we got to see a lot of super-epic photos of some of his personal friends, we talked about fashion, MCM and even 2ne1! It was so cool! He then took us for a ride in his (epicccc!) car and showed us the area a bit, before we settled down at a super cute café close by. He got us hand-dripped coffee w/syrup and even fed us as we hadn't eaten all day. He treated us like pure royalty and was so good to us. I can't even express in words how incredibly thankful I am! We got to do and see so many things that I wish I could share with you.. but that'll have to wait until after official statements have been made. (Okay, before you guys get all confused and start throwing up rainbows, we did not become trainees. Haha! So don't think like that ok! xD)
Anyway, we hung out with this guy for like 4 hours before we got on the subway home after exchanging numbers and promising to go out for dinner in the neighborhood as soon as we were all free to go. I've never met a person this inspirational and warm-hearted. He took us, 3 random girls, into his world - showed us around, fed us delicious food and sang along to the music at the café with us. Being in his company was so relaxing - he was like a good friend that you'd known for years but hadn't had the chance to see in a while. Spite us being so young, he listened to us, made us laugh and entertained us like there was no tomorrow! And for all of this.. I am so incredibly grateful! :"D

I know that you're probably thinking "Nani wtf just tell us who he is god dammit!" But I won't.. You can have a guess in the comments. LOL. I might tell you if you got it right or not.. ^__~)/ ㅋㅋㅋ
Before leaving you (hanging, haha) I just wanted to share a few pics of my bag, the MCM store and me and the girls outside one of the cafés we were at. A BIG shout-out to our new, amazing friend, who turned a hot, unbearable day into a fairytale for 3 little girls from Denmark. Hoho! THANK YOU 

Oh, and a second shout-out goes to the staff at MCM. These people are incredibly service-minded and they're super funny! If any of you get the chance, please go there to purchase your MCM stuff! They're SO nice and thoughtful ^__^)/
Thanks for reading, you guys!

Korea has been such a wonderful adventure so far. I've been here for 3 weeks and already have I experienced so much more than I have throughout my entire life on this planet. The thought of going to Korea for a year was scary, intimidating and maybe even a little bit saddening. But my god, has it been the best choice of my life! Korea is beyond amazing.. If you know a bit of basic Korean, definitely come here when you get the chance! It'll be amazing, trust me! You won't regret it ^__^)/
Until next time!
MUCH LOVE
