I've come to realize it's a lot harder to condense your week into five photos than you may initially think. This week in particular has been packed with a million things. At the end of next week I'm heading home to England for a couple of months. Although I'm so excited to go it couldn't be a more awkward time of year to visit. Not only do I have Christmas to think about but Steve and I are also due to move apartments at the end of the year. As a result we've got a lot on our plate. We've been apartment hunting before I leave and Steve will oversee the first part of the move whilst I'm still in England. This means I have to work out what I'm taking to England and also pack up our current apartment before I go. Of course there's Christmas shopping to think about too, finishing up at my job (which I wasn't smart enough to finish a few days early, no no, I couldn't possibly give myself some spare time) and seeing friends before I leave. And blogging. And life's necessary tasks - showering, sleeping, eating and painting my nails. Yes, painting my nails qualifies as necessary!
Since I have so much to sort out, naturally, I decided it would be a great time to go and waste a few hours at the movie theatre! Why not bury your head in the sand?! We saw The Help, which has only just reached us here in Korea. If you haven't seen it yet though, I'd definitely recommend it.
When I'm busy I love going to the movies. You can switch off your phone (possibly the only time it's acceptable to do so anymore?), forget everything and completely relax for a a couple of hours. It's also great because you don't need to bother getting dressed up. In fact it's possible to get away with going to the movies looking like a total hobo if you so choose. I don't go that far (I'm scared of seeing someone I know, which of course would be just my luck!) but I've definitely developed my standard comfy-casual movie-night look. I usually scrape my hair into a high ponytail, throw on some leggings, a long vest, comfy cardigan and a scarf.

Obviously I've woken up this morning stressing like crazy about everything I have to do during my last weekend in Seoul. Why on earth did I waste three precious hours?! I'm about to start packing up my wardrobe and accessory collection. A truly mammoth task; should be seeing you again sometime in 2012!
Leave a comment and let me know what will you be doing this weekend? Do you ever dress like a hobo to go to the movies or do you fear someone will see you?
Have a lovely weekend everyone!
