As you can tell from the title of this blog I’ve been crazy busy lately. My work in fashion (I’m not allowed to name the company online), freelance journalism, blogging and oh I almost forgot: trying to have a social life as well! But I shouldn’t complain because it’s all worth it. I love styling people, I love journalism and I love blogging. The amount of people visiting this site is increasing by the day and that makes me so happy! Will you look with me at my week(s) in pictures?View Post
It has been a busy and eventful two weeks. I’m back to working part-time in the fashion industry, attended a very important gathering for my work as a journalist and Chris and I celebrated our 1,5 year anniversary. We ate at a restaurant owned by someone Chris met on the plane to Amsterdam. The owners story about using fresh local Dutch ingredients had gotten Chris so enthusiastic that he insisted on eating there. I’m glad we did, because the food was so good that from now on I refuse to eat at any restaurant other than Pure Passie (Pure Passion) whenever we have a special occasion.View Post
As you can see from the date of my previous post I haven’t been active on The Beauty Suitcase the past month and a half at all. Currently I’m in Seoul South Korea as an international student. A few weeks ago, one week before my midterms, I went on this field trip to the South East of South Korea to this beautiful town called Gyeongju. There I got really sick, so sick that the morning after we got back to Seoul, I had to rush to the hospital where I got admitted to the ER with a fever of 40,1 C. For the people that don’t follow this blog/know me personally; I’ll explain a lot about Korean hospitals in this entry (skip to paragraph elven).View Post
I don’t have that much to write about in this #personal post as I just posted a (delayed) #personal post a few days (like two) ago. As some of you may know I can’t handle spicy food at all, may it be because Dutch cuisine uses not much more then salt and pepper or because my parents cook with even less spice then your average Dutch house hold. I don’t know, I just can’t stand even the slightest bit of red pepper. Something which kind of sucks when living in South Korea as I actually enjoy the taste of Kimchi, Korea’s traditional fermented vegetable dish, a lot. That is until the spiciness kicks in.

Can you believe it’s been almost four weeks since I left the Netherlands for Seoul? I can’t… and I know I have hardly blogged since arriving, for that I apologize (more about why I’ve been slacking so much can be found later on in this post under ‘technical problems’). Here is an extremely long, picture filled, update about my life in Korea which involves visiting historic palaces and villages, people dashing towards me to take pictures, eating lots of Japanese food, shopping for make-up and technical problems.
