Adventures in Korea: [Vlog] 가로수길 Garosu-gil Shopping & Cafes!

Explore 가로수길 (Garosu-gil)–an area in Seoul’s Gangnam district–from hip clothing stores to cafes and more. I absolutely love Garosu-gil for its high concentration of great shopping spots and 맛집 (mat-jip: restaurants known for delicious food), but with a bit of a smaller and less crowded atmosphere compared to Myeongdong or Gangnam Station.

Garosu-gil is also a great place for people-watching. We saw a couple models plus their entourage all dressed up doing photoshoots on the street. Can you say #ootd inspo?

We even saw a big commotion outside of the Swatch store here–paparazzi everywhere! Apparently there was some event going on and celebrities were arriving in their fancy cars. I unfortunately couldn’t figure out who the celebrities were…the combo of paparazzi and growing crowds of onlookers made it difficult to figure out 😦 But it was definitely fun to just be among the curious crowd!

Check out my vlog for more:

One of my biggest pickups from this shopping day was from Skinfood–one of my favorite roadshop brands for face masks (my fave is the Rice Wash Face Mask!). I included a quick haul in the vlog, as well ^_^
