Seoul searching in fabulous Seoul, South Korea: Beauty, Food & Fashion

Let it snow, let it snow, let it snow!~

I just came back from Seoul, Korea, recently and I’m still wishing I was back in the cold, with occasional snow while walking down the shopping streets of Garosu-gil, Hongdae and Myeongdong.

It’s 25 years into my life and it was my virgin visit to the popular travel destination, South Korea, to attend a K-Beauty conference – Made in Korea (MIK) 2017 – courtesy of MyFatPocket. It was my first time travelling with MFP’s Editor, Xinyi (@xinyicyndisoh) too. This short trip was a rather fruitful one as I got acquainted with many K-Beauty brands that are looking to expand to our tiny little red dot, ate many local dishes and bought even more makeup!

Make Smarter and Healthier Choices with the New Crunch App!

Calories in, calories out. Counting calories helps us achieve our weight goals, regardless of whether you want to lose or gain weight, or maybe even to maintain your current weight. Since beauty starts from within, it is important for us to keep track of what we eat and make an extra effort to workout to achieve those #bodygoals!

However, it can be difficult to keep track of what we eat throughout the day, and let alone count all those calories that we consume and burnt. So how about a weight management app that can check on our calorie intake? What’s more, it can also satisfy our foodfie needs, and allows us to share our OOTD of our latest sports gear?

What is Crunch?

Never fret about selfies anymore when you’re travelling with Casio EXILIM EX-ZR5000: Review

Travelling makes up a huge part of my life now, ever since I started working in the MICE (Meetings, Incentives, Conventions & Exhibitions) industry. If you’re a reader of Parade of Love, you’ll know that the face behind this beauty blog carries a DSLR out all the time.
However, when I’m travelling, I always rely on my iPhone and never brings my heavy duty cam. I mean, everyone wants to travel light (well, at least I do, especially for business) so it’s perfect if you are able to capture special moments or scenery with a lightweight gadget that delivers high quality photographs! Just for this post, none of the photos are edited to show you what I mean by a quality compact camera. Introducing… Casio EXILIM EX-ZR5000!
There are 4 colours to this digital camera made for the perfect selfies – Black, White, Pink and Green! Aren’t they pretty! And well, this selfie cam features an upgraded 19mm super wide-angle lens and Wide View Photo mode to deliver expansive and high-impact scenic photographs that are sure to impress!
