I am a huge advocate of all things Korean. Their skincare is unrivalled, their pop music is adorable, and their food…well. Korean dining is having a bit of a moment in London, but people still seem afraid to go full Korean – and that’s where Jinjuu, a contemporary take on traditional Korean dining, takes centre stage. The last time I visited was at the soft launch, but as the restaurant has been up on its feet for a while I felt it was only time to go back. We spent last Friday there eating and drinking the night away, and so I thought I’d share my recommendations (plus some serious food pics that make me wanna take a lunch break while writing this).
If you saw my post on Selfridge’s build your own Birchbox, you’ll know that I had a bit of a moment, and am now officially a convert to the beauty box way. Just in time, I managed to squeeze my way in before the end of the month, so here’s a quick look at the September 5th Birthday/Birchday box…
As a child I was the dictionary definition of bookworm, and I read at every opportunity, even while walking down the street. Now however, after being put in my place by the real world, I barely find the time to read more than a handful of pages every now and then and don’t get to knuckle down with a book quite as often as I’d like to. Regardless, here are a few choice reads from this month that I would highly recommend.
No matter how long I’ve tried to deny it, I’m a new-product addict. I very quickly get bored of my routine products and start itching to try something new, so the number of Boots and Superdrug stores on my way to and from work are a danger to my bank account. I heard about Birchbox a while back, and it seemed like the solution to all my problems: a monthly subscription box filled with mini cult classics or emerging brands, packed in a beautiful box (did I mention my other weaknesses are miniature things and re-usable packaging?)
Thing is, I never quite got round to subscribing to Birchbox, so when one of my best friends told me about a Birchbox x Selfridges collaboration to celebrate Birchbox’s 5th birthday, where you could build your own box in store, we went along to see what all the fuss was about and if we could be tempted into subscribing.
As the number of characters in a tweet just aren’t enough, and my instagram captions are turning into essays, I’ve decided it’s high time I started a blog!
