What is your nationality; Where were you born and raised; Where have you travelled; How tall are you? [erika]

  • I’m South Korean.
  • I was born in Seoul, but raised in Warsaw (Poland).
  • I travelled around the world when I was a kid in a Helium balloon with a metrosexual person in a bunnysuit. No, um I lived in Vienna for 2 years when I was a baby, and I was taken around when I was a kid through most of the major cities in Europe. I’ve never been to the States and the only Asian countries I’ve been to were Tokyo and Seoul. We mostly radiated around central Europe, so I did a lot of adolescent naked-swimming in Hungary and the Czech rep.
  • How tall am I – I’m 168cm/5’5(?). Although, I do have heels attached to my sole like hardskin so I usually breathe the 175cm/5’8 air.

How do you take care of your hair? [sputnik sweetheart]

I dunk it in vitamin water daily and whip it occasionally with a belt to make it more frothy. I don’t actually have any haircare tips, I just wash +condition it in the morning, let it dry naturally (yes, naughty). My guess is that everything I eat goes to my hair – hence my dying skin and generally unhealthy body. My hair has totalitarian rule, it seems.

What is your job/occupation? [punkie]

I’m a full-time student studying Graphic Design in Central Saint Martins, but I also work freelance for a Dutch Webdesign company.

Why are you so fabulous?; Can you post more DIYs? [Christine]

  • Fabulous, huh? I hardly think so (but thanks!), but methinks my milkshake brings all the boys to the yard.
  • Yes of course I will post more DIYs, I’m currently bone dry of inspiration for doable/easy DIYs. The knitting and sewing will only reach a small number of people so I need to find something that everyone can benefit from. AND I need to learn how to sew anyway :P

Four questions a day, in the order they were posted! :D

  1. thank you for the lovely comment at the box ;)
    i hoped you’ve checked out her stuff, she’s actually been around for a while *oops*
    epic outfits go with epic music eh?

  2. ok, so i totally cracked up to the dramatic blogging to the dark night soundtrack. i can only imagine how that’d look like.

    the graphic design @ central st martins totally explains why i’ve always loved the look of your blog. the typography, the minimalistic look, and the hyena (?) logo make the site for me.

    lastly, loving the optical illusion tights!

  3. Ooh, thanks for the answers! LOL at the first one, btw x)
    Anddd my sister had some justice in saying what she did; I tend to eat like some sort of starved child whenever food is in my vicinity…except for yesterday when all I ate was rice, 김, more rice, and then some 된장찌개, hence the hooker name hahaa.

  4. thanks for stopping by :o)

    funny, i actually was going to cut the neckline off from my Muji t shirt today–it’s strangling me! what a relief to hear that you had the same problem with yours. i thought it was just me and that i had an unfortunately thick neck! wondering if you have any idea how to wash it? i wonder if hand washing would rid it of its wrinkles? hm.

  5. We have a lot in common you and I. I make my own tights, own the Dark Knight soundtrack and spend many hours doing graphic design on a Mac.

    And I am a Korean girl who grew up in Poland!

    … okay, scratch that last one.

  6. Haha these were fun to read. And we’re the same height! Although.. I’m a flats girl haha. I love those shoes and Europe must be awesome =) I can’t wait to go to Paris for study abroad! =)

  7. shini you are freaaaaaakinggggg funnnyyyyyy that is why i love you!!! hahahaha. You’ve never been to the states?? ANOTHER reason why you must come visit me in ny ;) yes??

    and you look taller than 5’5″! are you sure about that lady? hehe. Oh and btw you are os lucky that you don’t have to do anything special to keep your hair long and healthy. Mine is constantly sick from all the color I force upon my hair. So hair masks are basically my best friend. hehe.

    oh p.s. cadbury is really easy to find here! Especially in New York because there are lots of Brits here. I can eat a fair share of Picnic bars lol.

  8. Milkshake..thats my song.

    Those tights came out awesome. Everything about this outfit works and I love it <3!

  9. haha! great answers. you look extremely stunningly fabulous.

    i want knitting diys! i’m bored of the patterns i have…i bet you make cool stuff! my grandma asked me to knit her a vest, so i’m working through that…it’s so tedious.

  10. i love the diy leggings. actually, i love everything in this outfit!

  13. oh, you just started knitting? what are you making right now? i learned about 4 years ago, by my ridiculously expert gma and aunt, and it just came naturally and i love it so much! my (other) gma had this yarn and really wanted a vest, so i’m making it for her. it’s drapey and very pretty! please keep me updated with your knitting escapades! i’m here if you need any tips!

  20. Annhyeoung hashimnika! (sp?)

    haha. I’ve been adding Korean to my reportoi of languages lol and since your nationality arises from here….. thought I’d ask! hehe

    lol You are too funny! Sarcasm is so difficult to detect on the cyber web but this wasn’t! Indeed you must do some DIY posts. Those tights are DIY? Gaaaah, I almost collapsed reading that! No-freakin-way! hahahahaha.

  22. Answer: THank you so much for you comment :D

    Love your outfit, and those tights are amazing :)

  23. Ooh you’re multicultural :p love it. And the effect of your leggings with the white tights, awesome! I thought it was one piece at first but then I remembered your DIY ;)

  24. Love your answers to the questions; they make you even more likeable. Sometimes you read Q&A posts and cringe at the answers but not so here. I was giggling at the bunnysuit portion ;)

    And once again, love the DIY tights. And yes, I too would love to see more DIYs that I can shamelessly copy :)

    Happy Easter.
