One of my goals throughout the holiday is to try and visit as many cafes in Seoul as possible. There are so many, and I want to visit them all while I still have the chance. I spotted Le Montblanc on Instagram, and luckily the friend that came with me also had that cafe on her… Continue reading [Cafe Break] Le Montblanc, Seoul
(Featuring sheet masks and insta-crafting.) Mock exams are a roller-coaster of emotions. Psychology was fine other than that I didn't write enough, and didn't know my arguments well enough to write more. I know full well I am capable of at least two sides of writing for topics I definitely get, but for now I'm… Continue reading Reflection: Mock My Week.
Recently I have been reflecting on the blog and the writing style I use for it. It does sound like me, yes... a formal, too many thoughts me. I'm wondering whether I should attempt to adapt it or not. Big question. Another thing. I still need to finish the blog logo. Just assume it will… Continue reading Life and TV Knitting Update
I am typing almost half asleep and am blissfully wondering if I could squeeze in a nap before dinner... I think one of the single biggest factors of my skincare problems is my lack of sleep. The other is hydration, which has been easier to rectify. I get into bed at 10pm but don't fall… Continue reading Weekly Thoughts #10
Okay, so when I started writing 'weekly thoughts' it was because the things that happened in my life were far too momentous to put into their own posts. Then all of my personal writing became the weekly thoughts so now I'm trying to switch it back a bit. I guess I am still finding my feet with… Continue reading Must Knit to Quell the Urge to Eat during GBBO…
As of 12:30 yesterday, the summer has started and so has the perpetual boredom, and the bubbling hype leading up to AS results day... I'm not one to laze around doing nothing (!) so I have my own goals set for this summer. This includes a reading list, picking up that new language again, as well… Continue reading SUMMER HAS ARRIVED.
(posted a few days ago but reined in again for editing...) This would normally be your Weekly Thoughts segment but I think this has become a more accurate title! We've harvested our first batch of strawberries: a ripe little handful of deliciousness... I finished some books recently that I didn't post about. 'The Winner's Curse'… Continue reading Things that Happened (#6)
Every now and again, it actually feels like summer in England, especially on days like last Sunday. By complete coincidence I ended up in the garden holding Mom's phone, which has a great, 20-point-something megapixel camera. The only other thing I know about it is that it's from Sony's flagship Xperia Z series. Aren't I great… Continue reading Sunday Snaps!
This week, they're mostly about me being paranoid about the future. Whilst making the Purse Stitch Scarf, I've been measuring it up using my arms and have finally reached my second shoulder. It seems as if the more I knit, the slower progress becomes... But soon I may just have a summer scarf (on time… Continue reading Weekly Thoughts #4
I did a lot of swatching and Rav surfing during my revision breaks. Despite lots of theoretical calculating and mental swatching with my stash, I settled on a simple, free pattern from Purl Soho again. This is the Purse Stitch Scarf inspired by the Open Air Wrap from Purl Soho. I'm knitting it based on a… Continue reading Knitterly Updates #2: Current Project
