Currently Loving #29

There is quite a lot of stuff I've been enjoying lately, y'all...here goes....

1) Samsung Galaxy S7
I've always been an iPhone gal since since around 2007 when the 3G came out. I realized my cell phone co. reward dollars will expire soon, so I decided to finally upgrade my old iPhone 5 to a new phone. After doing my research, I decided to go with an android phone, namely this S7, and I love it! Here's why:
- water and dust resistant
- expandable memory (up to 200G with a MicroSD card)
- excellent camera
Below is an unedited shot I took with the phone...I love the shallow depth of field.
Mul naengmyun...love this dish.
2) Spigen Slim Armor Case
A new phone requires a new case, of course. This one by Spigen offers great protection and also has a kickstand.

3) So Ji Sub
I just recently finished Master's Sun with Ji Sub and Gong Hyo Jin, and this is another Korean show I loved. Part horror (but not too scary)/part rom-com, the story is really quite engaging with some heart-breaking moments. So Ji Sub played the part of the arrogant CEO who eventually changed his ways quite brilliantly IMO. Now, I've been watching his hip hop MVs on YouTube...it's a slippery slope, I tellz yah!

4) Memrise app
Miu recommended this app to me when I did a post about learning Korean, and have been using it everyday since then along with the books below. Guys, I love this app! I'm only in the beginning level, but I can already see the improvements in my memorization of Hangeul and many of the everyday greetings. Highly recommend this.


Both Madison and Shireen recommended DuoLingo which I've checked out. It's also a good one, but unfortunately, right now, it doesn't have a Learn Korean segment. I've checked the lessons for other languages though, and they do look great.

5) Bioré UV Aqua Rich Watery Essence sunscreen
Since getting into Asian Beauty, this is one of the few items in my skincare routine that has become a Holy Grail (HG) item. Most of the sunscreens I've tried before broke me out, but this one never did. I love the texture and it's perfect as a makeup primer.
A warning though: it's not waterproof/sweatproof, and does contain alcohol.
As you can see, I use it a lot that need back ups!
Speaking of Asian Beauty, I would like to take this opportunity to thank and send massive hugs to  Rowena. You guys who have been reading my posts for awhile know that she's the reason I got into Korean dramas. Well, not only does she give me awesome show recommendations, she also sent me this package for no other reason than because she's awfully sweet.
Guys, I am really super lucky to have met through blogging awesome people like her. XOXO

I almost don't want to use that mask with Song Joong Ki's face....

Do let me know what you're currently loving as well:)

  2. You're like totally making me want some naengmyun now. I swear that's like one of the best things ever to eat when it's hot XD You and Kim are totally bringing me to tears and humbling me with your super kind words this week. I'm just so glad that you were also able to discover the joy of K-dramas. It's cute how hooke dyou've become and it always fun to have someone else to spazz with. And can't a sunbae hook a hoobae up ;p You can cut the package carefully and save it afterwards!!! I'm currently loving my new haircut because I can't stand to have hair on my neck when it's hot out.

  10. I'm an iPhone girl through and through and my husband is using Android, don't think I'll ever convert though, I get really frustrated when I borrow his phone. LOL! And OMG, that sunscreen is the bomb, it's really amazing and I've been really enjoying it and major thank you to you for sending one to me, Emmy!

    ps: Rowena is amazing isn't she? She sent me a lipstick that became one of my top 3 favourites pink too!

  11. Pity about the Korean language for Duolingo, well perhaps TenguGo Hangul or Nemo app will work?! That's all I know regarding Asian languages. I also want to switch from iPhone lately. Haven't yet, but I did play around with my bf's new Samsung and the camera was amazing not to mention the screen in general. Happy Friday! x

  15. Oh I'm glad to hear you're loving the s7! I still have the s5, haha! I'm thinking I might upgrade it around Christmas...we will see.

    I'm going to look into that app to see if I can learn mandarin with it too - my father in law speaks it and I want to teach my sons :)

  16. Very cool items; the S7 is awesome! It looks so sleek and the picture quality is great. I am a die-hard iPhone fan but I admit the camera on iPhones is not that great.

    Have a beautiful weekend.

  18. Emmy, I just purchased some Samsung tv's for my house. I LOVE the brand! They're always the first to come out with new technology and innovative stuff. I have an iphone, but I'm not in love. Especially with the picture quality. I keep getting it because I don't want to figure out anything new, but I know the Samsung is better. I'm stuck on chuck! LMAO Maybe that needs to change. I need to write down all of these language apps, you Madison etc keep throwing around. I want to learn a new language too :D Rowena is the best! That was a very nice package she sent you! She's always so thoughtful. Love her.

  19. I liked the picture quality when I had my iPhone 4s. Now that I have the 5s, I don't really like the pictures. But I love the fact that it's hard to crack into. I love your phone. You cannot beat water and dust resistance.
