Day 4:
Muji Wool Black Coat (I wanted to wear this on the third day, but it's raining. Hah.)
Juicy Couture Bag

Aigoo, 3 coats in total, 2 Fitflop boots. Oh, and this too...

Gap Sweater Slippers
So yes, I concur, I can't pack light. So instead of happily being contented with 20 kg each, we ended up upgrading our baggage allowance to 30 kg. 

My dear chinggus, I know that skin care shopping in Korea is heaven (and I spent most of my funds here, Innisfree lover much!), but, my, my, I was pleasantly broke surprised that same goes for clothes and shoe shopping. Along the shops and street vendors lining Myeongdong, you can get all your winter outfits and a whole lot more.... 3000 KRW for a scarf, 10000 KRW for a winter top/knitted sweater, as low as 30000 KRW for a pair of winter boots. 

Jeans were never enough to keep me comfortably warm on low temp weather, yes, even California Christmas. So I layer it with a thick support stockings, plus I have leg warmers handy just in case. Also, I just realized that there's a degree of warming level from the Heat Tech collection of Uniqlo, I saw a Heat Tech plus recently, what I got was years back, and their not really enough to keep me warm, so I had to add another layer. 

For the top, I mostly layer a sleeveless, thermal top, main top (usually knitted, and long sleeve) and my coat. Oh...don't forget the scarf, and the hat, and the gloves. Dress to kill. There goes my baggage allowance. Hah. 

The weather was relatively cozy, except for that rainy Saturday, and no snow. Haay! It would have been even more fantastic, and dreamy, and magical, and romantic, if there were some snow falls...Korean dramagods, please make my day the next time around, okay? Cheers! ^_^

About Me

My photo

Wifey to JB and Mommy to Chasey :) It's said that one's eyes are windows to one's soul. True! My eyes twinkle when I'm happy, they light up with my smile. I’m no frills! I'm easy to read (except during Poker). I easily get teary eyed on practically both happy and sad things. I'm overly emotional! UP,Toy Story 3, and Glee made me cry with delight.My hubby is my source of strength. He balances that side of my personality. He made me a more self-reliant person.I love being a mom. But be it known that I tend to be OC, paranoid, and definitely see my self as a stage mom.I can't help but throw him parties every year.I love to read. If there is a lifetime membership to Book Lover's Club, I've probably signed in as early as Grade 1. I'm blessed to have a special relationship with God. He is my confidante. I practically talked to him anywhere and anytime about anything. I'm a Kapampangan and supposedly known for having culinary skills.This still needs to be found perfected, but for sure, I can say I'm a gourmand!I love to eat and it shows!Oh well!Beauty is in the Eye of the Beholder and Happiness is only a state of mind. From today onwards, I intend to live in a Happy Mode!Cheers!
