a good smoothie

Today I started my day with coffee smoothie,
more precisely, high protein almond mocha from smoothie king Korea
As you know me, I am pretty much drinking coffee all day long
but these days... I got aware that there are certain smoothies that go well with what you ate previously. I got this tiny pamphlet-slash-coupons from smoothieking that informs you
what smoothie is a healthy option for you after you consume hamburger, cakes, coffee and/or such etc.
So in my case, high protein almond mocha was the right one.
It tastes good and makes you full right away, so it could be a great breakfast alternative if you are running late to school or works.
other things you see above: I bought this amazing looking earcuffs from H&M since I had some discount code to use in the store, got myself a sample of Jo Malone's Wood Sage & Sea Salt (new fragrance launching on the 22nd here in Koreatime)

cupcake wishlist

two of my favorite dessert choices are always macarons & cupcakes
it's no surprise for a lady to stop by a cake house admiring all the decorative cake stands right?
"everydaycupcake" has such varieties of pretty looking pieces
I picked two kinds this day, baby choux & vanilla cupcakes
both are obviously very pink-y
plates and cups are Wedgwood

hope you all have a lovely weekend!
(It's Friday nighttime here in Korea)

I will always love

recently discovered this pretty-looking macarons called
"Horangcaron" 호랑카롱 in Korea.
I was browsing the feeds and hashtags on instagram and found these massively popular macarons, so far as I know... these only sell in fewly selected cafes and occasionally sell in open markets for reserved sets.
I finally got in my hands these 12 pieces and literally finished them all in two minutes.
Happy weekend everyone!

well-deserved love

I found a newly opened restaurant "LABLE" located right in front of the Haeundae Beach
Cool fact: price = super affordable
LABLE means 'Our LAB to your TABLE '
the whole meaning is to bring you great time, service, and food
(weekday lunch includes complimentary organic salad & coffee.
this restaurant is closed on Mondays.
Make reservations before!)
