about me

about me

I’m Crystal! I’m happy to see you!

I’m originally from St. Louis, but I lovingly call Seoul my home.  I love art & design, travel and DIY, all manner of cats, perfect holidays and the genius of food.

I am an animal adoption advocate, a supporter  of cruelty free products (especially cosmetics) and a lover of all things paper.  I like to amateur chef it up in my kitchen and create a world of fusion with my food. 

My Seoul lifestyle has changed me for the better and it’s still evolving. As a natural indoorsy person, Korea has taught me to get out and explore. Walk randomly. Adopt 2 Korean creatures named Iggy & Bacchus. Find the world’s best food. Enjoy life more.  My work is never done. 

Seoul is an exhilarating city with choices for all. I am so happy to live in a world of art galleries, cultural events, incredible restaurants and one of the best public transportation systems in the world! I hope you plan to visit Korea and take advantage of everything on offer here just like I do!  

Please visit me on the blog. Keep in touch by messages and emails!

  2. Hey, somehow I never have managed to run into this street art in Hongdae. I found your site while looking for pictures of Mullae Art Village. (I was doing a test search to see what comes back when you search “Seoul, Mullae, Statue” as it is a clue for a Letter box I hid recently) Its a fun hobby you should try it out if you like exploring and Art.
