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!

Adventures in Korea: [Vlog] Shopping in Myeongdong! (StyleNanda Pink Hotel, Innisfree Cafe & more)

There are stores for what seems like every popular brand–Korean and international–that you can think of. This shopping area is especially great for non-Korean speakers because most stores are staffed with associates who are multilingual (from English to Chinese to Japanese and more)

The Thing About New Year’s Resolutions

So it’s a reality that when December ends and January 1st rolls around, it’s really just another day in your life. You get the people who take this globally recognized holiday as a milestone, a sort of communal boost of motivation to start a new chapter of your life. Then there’s others who simply choose to disregard this concept and just keep chugging on with their lives. Continue reading “The Thing About New Year’s Resolutions”

Katventures: Bay Area Pun-Off

It’s seriously an amazing feeling to be surrounded by a warm community where you feel like you have a safe space to speak your mind. That’s what I found when I attended my first ever pun-off.  Continue reading “Katventures: Bay Area Pun-Off”


Settling out into the post-college world can be a scary thing. In the almost 9 months I have been done with school, it’s safe to say it just feels like I’m floating out at sea just kinda…going with the flow of things. Quite literally, graduating felt like being a baby just thrown into a pool for the first time. It’s sink or swim.  Continue reading “Adrift”
