    Wearing a Korean traditional Hanbok

    Schermafbeelding 2013-06-24 om 23.36.28 Ever since I was a little girl and saw Mulan, later on Korean dramas and even later on Memoirs of a Geisha I’ve been wanting to dress up in a gorgeous Asian dress. In Japan I didn’t get the chance but in Seoul this dream became reality as I, together with Chris and some of our friends, got to wear traditional Korean hanboks. Directions to the place where we went can be found at the bottom of the post.

    Review – The Face Shop Face It Styling Auto Gel Liner

    Review – The Face Shop Face It Styling Auto Gel Liner

    OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA Upon arrival in Seoul I discovered that I had left my Sephora waterproof contour eye pencil at home! In blind panic I googled for a Sephora in South Korea, not even just Seoul…, and had to face the fact (geddit) that they don’t sell here. While out and about I randomly walked into one of the many beauty stores that can be found in the South Korean capital. After swatching a few pencils I picked out the ‘FACE it STYLING auto GEL LINER’ in 02 Edge Brown for 7700 Won (5 euro/6,6 dollar) from the Face Shop. Now the name might sound a bit confusing as the product I’m talking about is a pencil liner and not a jar filled with gel liner. Every new product I buy, I put to the test; which this time included humid Asian weather.

    When packing your suitcase to go abroad there will always be these little things of which you think ‘o they will have that over there’, but some (girl) products that you will ‘obviously’ find in European and American (drug)stores might actually not be available. I experienced this first-hand being in Seoul South Korea. Here’s a list of products/clothes that you might want to put in your bag before leaving on your holiday to Asia, and especially when moving abroad for a longer period of time. This post is mainly directed towards girls, but guys you are obviously free to read it too.

    #Personal – In the hospital during midterms

    Ziekenhuis 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).

    사진-988-Free-Crop-tm The coming months I’m gonna travel a lot so I thought it would be nice to share the destinations I’m gonna visit with you all.

To those I say (and I know I’ve said it before) there will be more beauty articles coming up soon, I PROMISE…
