[Korea] Korea Travel Expo 2017 (2017 내나라 여행박람회)

I should have let you know about this when I signed up a couple of weeks ago!
Foreigner Tickets - I am not sure if the sign-up window is closed yet.
The last day is TOMORROW, 19 February!

However, you can buy tickets at the door!

It's on the third floor of Coex Exhibition Center in halls C and D1.




Hall C has all of the tourist organizations' booths. And hall D1 has the food and marketplace items. I was actually surprised how many different cities/provinces in Korea have their own wine. It would definitely make a great unique gift for someone!

Basically province has a booth! The interesting thing to me, is that a lot of the -gun are represented, which are the small counties in Korea. It's smaller than a city.

There are also booths where you can do "experiences" including learning traditional Korean drumming, trying on hanbok (Korean traditional clothing), do pottery, and painting and other arts and crafts.

I really liked this artist's work at the Gwangju booth. He was adding caricatures of the expo ascenders to the big poster with hand drawings of tourist points in Gwangju.


You can walk around and get a ton of information and participate in a bunch of activities and get free swag!


I have so much domestic Korean travel research material. Where should I go next? Comment below where you would like me to write about! Also, make sure to check the "Korea Travel" and the "explore" tag to see where I have already written about. :)


You can do some SNS activities and get some cool stuff! You'll notice that certain cities have HUGE tourism budgets...it's the likely culprits - Jeju, Busan, Gwangju, etc. I was kind of surprised how bit the Paju booth was.

The coolest stuff I got, in my opinion, were the Boseong green tea seeds. :)
Also, I'm currently using a free Burger King calendar I got when I bought a Mango Jelly Bong Bong drink on the 1000 KRW menu, so I am kind of jazzed about the calendar.

[Skincare Review] Head-to-Head Test: Estee Lauder Advanced Night Repair vs. La Mer The Concentrate

 As promised, here is my blog comparing the Estee Lauder Advanced Night Repair vs. the La Mer The Concentrate. FTC disclaimer: I was sent both of these items for free in exchange for my full and honest review. I tried to be as scientific as humanly possible. I had a blinded reviewer (my mom) who was actually unaware I was even doing a skincare test, so her opinion is completely blinded and she tried really hard to give a full and honest review of differences she noticed. I did this for 2 weeks. In the 14 days before the test, I was testing out the Estee Lauder ANP product in exchange for my review. I had enough product left (and actually received a second sample to test). My nighttime skincare routine was the same as usual. 1) DHC Cleansing Oil - Buy from YesStyle | Buy from Amazon 2) Micellar Water (for eye makeup) 3) Rosette Cleansing Paste Sea Clay Smooth - Buy From YesStyle  | Buy from Amazon I used my PMD Clean (from CAUSEBOX) to wash my face.
