Ladies, how was your weekend? Mine's been pretty hectic! Dressed casually and comfortably (the only way in my opinion when facing an entire day shopping) I headed to Seoul on Saturday. I went to try and find sandals and the bits I'd mentioned in my previous post but of course, because it's what we brits call 'sod's law', I couldn't find any of those things. Not one!
We actually began the day by going to get my diamond set in my engagement ring. My fiancé proposed with a stand in ring (maybe he knows I'm fussy) and then we chose a diamond and had a setting custom made. As such, it's taken a little while to get it sorted but now it's done and I couldn't be happier! I absolutely love it! I'm thinking of doing a little post sometime if you guys would like to see it properly?
We followed that with a pit stop for coffee and cupcakes at my favourite cafe in Seoul. Yummy! After, we took a short stroll along a stream in the city then on to the shops where, despite not finding anything I needed, I picked up lots of other things.
Come on now, you didn't think I'd be leaving empty handed did you?!!
I snapped some shots on my phone whilst on the go through the day. So here you have a day shopping with me:
|One thing guaranteed to get me excited - cupcakes! Far too excited in fact!|
|Three of my favourite things - my ring, cupcakes and my nails.|
|Walking at Cheongyecheon in Seoul. Beige Linen Blazer - Zara. Orange ruffled vest - Dorothy Perkins.|
|You haven't seen busy until you've seen Myeongdong, Seoul's main shopping district!|
|Purchase 1 : Lime green bag, my nod to the neon trend - On&On|
|Purchase 2 : Hot pink blouse - Zara. I also picked up a couple of tees and a rather snazzy necklace too! |
I knew I should have stuck to my new rule of avoiding Zara! Dang it!
|See that cute bear in the middle? He'd have been Purchase 3 if the fiancé hadn't got in the way of things.|
|Taxi to dinner : I'm happy because I got new things, he's happy because he made it out alive. |
|Rewarding myself with a cocktail after a hard days shopping.|
Another successful shopping trip and I'm pleased to report my man is still talking to me! I'm planning to wear most of my new things when I'm in Hong Kong so you'll get to see the rest of them then.
So, what did you do this weekend? Have you made any new purchases lately, were they things you needed or just things you wanted?
