Healthy living + BLOCK.B "BLOCKBUSTER" video review

I've been wanting to boost my way of living for a while now. I was really sick for a long time and being sick every single month since I got here is starting to piss me off. 

Bahaha, it looks like Flavia is about to munch on the meat up there!
I'm finally feeling a bit better and yesterday I splurged and bought groceries for about $50+. I bought lettuce, cucumber, plain yoghurt and granola for breakfast, strawberries, dressing, cherry tomatoes etc. 

Oh and this is my breakfast from this morning. Plain yoghurt, blueberry granola and fresh strawberries. It was delicious as shietttt. THe strawberries were surprisingly sweet : D
I've been looking online for a bit to find good recipes and I found this one. I'm a huge fan of fish (not seafood/해물, but FISH) and especially white fish and salmon - so yay! Sadly.. I'm not a huge fan of buying it here in Korea. It's expensive and I'm a huge germ freak, so even if I went to a super market to buy it, I'd be all OCD and weird about others touching my meat. lol. Anyway, I wanna try this recipe (the one above) and maybe supplement with some fresh salad or maybe steamed veggies? What do you guys think? You can check out the recipe for yourself HERE.

Anyway, enough of the food-talking. I wanted to share my latest video with you guys! It's been highly requested so.. I did it for you. lol. It's the review of BLOCK.B's first album "BLOCKBUSTER". If you watched my KPOP HAUL VIDEO you'd know that I speak very highly of this release. Feel free to check out the video if interested. But be warned.. There's a lot of embarrassing jamming going on in it. lol. Hope you enjoy!

Thanks for reading/watching.
Have a wonderful weekend!

If you have any good suggestions for healthy food recipes (that do NOT require an oven), feel free to let me know in the comments below : D

Oh! And a super huge thank you goes out to all you lovely ladies who've been writing such super sweet messages to me on Twitter and Facebook ♡ You make my day!

☆ ~ 2012 RECAP ~ ☆

My year 2012
in pictures and captions (that took me forever to edit -__-" lol)

I'm quite surprised by how many hits my birthday post got (and is still getting).. What is going on? Anyway, here's my 2012 in pics (and short captions) Hope you all had a wonderful Christmas and New Year! ^__^)/ ~ ♡
JANUARY x I spent a shit ton of time with JEONGIE during January. We did a lot of shopping, celebrated New Years together and yeah.. just hung out a lot in general. She also was the host of the party that we threw to welcome ARLENE to Denmark when she came to visit! ^__^)/

FEBRUARY x This month has no picture for the mere reasons that 1. February sucked for me and 2. I didn't blog at all.. My family had a very close friend taken away from us way too soon and she left this world in the most horrible way one could ever imagine. So yeah, let's leave it at that.

MARCH x Yay! I participated in the big demonstration in Copenhagen against ACTA. Fuckyeah, we did a good job! ACTA was cancelled and trashed shortly after. Hoho! Score! I also got my own apartment! :'D Looking at the pictures now I kinda miss it.. -sigh-

APRIL x I got my first LUSH order in the mail and loved pretty much everything! Except the foot mask.. The foot mask was made of evil and mint. Ouch! I got a lovely care package from Haku and I went home shortly during the month to visit family.

MAY x I got my fucking awesome DSLR this month and my food porn pics instantly got better! Haha! I also got my first Sigma Beauty order in, finally got my hands on some Makeup Forever products and cooked like a maniac! So much food porn nom nom nom!

JUNE x Uni ended and we flipping ROCKED the event at the National Museum. I worked hard to make a good impression (and a good presentation) and it paid off! I got an A+ and could finish uni that semester with a big smile on my face. I spent my last days in the capital by chilling with friends, eating and doing slumber parties at Dev's house. Good times! Oh, and I met Haku as well! Best month EVER imo!

JULY x I actually packed up my things in the end of June, but oh well. I moved my stuff to my parents' house and decided to spend my last month in Denmark with them. I helped out a bit around the house, went with my dad to Germany to shop a bit for Gold Cup 2012, cut my hair super short and spent some time with my parents' new puppy! You can barely see her on the pic, but she's actually laying down just in front of Agnes (the white/black one). Ahh~! Shirley's gotten super big already. -sigh-

AUGUST x August was crazy as heck! I spent a weekend with my entiiiire family at Lalandia in Billund to celebrate my grandma's birthday before leaving. I then packed my shit and left for Korea. It was a long-ass trip (18,5 hours on flight in total) and we were completely busted after that. I got sick within the first 2 days (damn air condition) of being there but oh well.. We did a bit of partying, met some awesome people after moving into the dorms, went to the SM.ARTS Exhibition at CO.EX (where we were interviewed 3 times and where we also saw Ryeowook and Eunhyuk from Super Junior, w00t) and went to see a bit of the PROLEAGUE 2012 games - T1 vs. ACE. Of course T1 won ; D 천찬씨 was an ultimate fanboy that day. Haha! Good times!

SEPTEMBER x I don't remember much else than the MCM event from this month.. oh and the concert! I was literally drunk for almost 3 weeks out of this month. It was crazy! I went with friends to see FT Island's show TAKE FTISLAND (it was epiccc!!), went to buy MCM bags and then also went to the MCM x Vogue Korea event the same month. Oh, again.. lots of partying! The pic is me and Caspin aka 내제일좋아하는뚱바보 ♡ ㅋㅋ

OCTOBER x In October we made the huge mistake of going to the fireworks festival. It was a beautiful show but the trip home was a BITCH as the nearest subway had been closed and police was surveilling  the other two. We had to walk along the highway to find a cab, constantly having to listen to stupid dudes in cars honking and yelling at us in broken English -__-" We luckily found a cab, but ugh.. Never again. Also.. the most amazing release of the year (of any year in kpop really) came out - BLOCK.B's BLOCKBUSTER. I'm still loving the album to bits. Will do a review/unboxing on my YOUTUBE channel for you guys! Just gotta clear my cold first.. T_T

NOVEMBER x Argh finals began this month. I spent a shit ton of time with my KLI class and especially Sejon and I went on some epic adventures. He went back to Australia already but oh well~ What else can you expect from a fackin' caaarnt? LOL. I also experimented a bit with my hair color and dyed some of it lilac (I did that in October too, but November's outcome was better imo).. I was also majorly sick during some of the finals. I'm sick now too.. again.. Jeez.

DECEMBER x Ahhhh such a crazy month! The holidays made me miss family and friends back home to DEATH and I've had a hard time handling being so far away. I'm dealing with it still, but oh well.. What can you do? I guess this is all part of growing up. Anyway, this month I went to A Walk With(out) the Stars (click HERE for vlog!), got my first tattoo (read about it HERE) that I fucking LOVE to pieces, turned 22 and celebrated with a great party with epic friends! :'D They even got me a cake! Ahh~! ♡ It was the best party ever! I later on celebrated a rather sad Christmas Eve with Kat and Nezumi. After that I ended up going to Hongdae and got fucked up (meaning: piss drunk lol). New Years was spent at Nezumi's dorm where we watched Harry Potter, had snacks and just generally had a great time! I also got to Skype with my parents that day.. I actually Skyped with them at 8AM on the 1st of January (time difference) and they were all piss drunk. LOLOL. Good times! I miss them a lot..

And yeah.. here we are! A lot of my friends left Korea (or are leaving soon) so our paths are separating us yet once again. I gained and lost a lot of friends here already - all part of growing up, huh? It's tough but you learn to live with it I guess. I'm excited to see what the next few months will bring, as our scholarship doesn't allow us to take winter classes. So for now (and until March) I can chill.. I'm hoping for a trip to Japan one of these days! I really wanna go! Maaaybe if I'm super lucky, my trip to Japan will crash with a the GazettE gig. Oh dang, that would be epic! ♡ Hoho!

Wish you all a wonderful 2013
Thank you so much for all the support during this past year.
I can't wait to share my life experiences with you guys in the new year as well.
Take care and stay strong
