I am very (un)fashionably late in doing this shopping haul; it’s been exactly ten days since I purchased these things when I went to The War Memorial Museum in Seoul. Anyone who is visiting Seoul for more than a week should visit this museum amongst other Tourist places. The entry is free; there are plenty of fighter jets, helicopters (choppers) and tankers on display besides the 3-D and 4-D shows that run throughout the day.
I love South Korea and already knew a lot about the history of this nation but I learnt a lot more during my visit to this museum. What happened during the Korean war is really heart breaking but then South Korea has recovered from those gray years and become a powerful economy. I feel sad when I read about what is going on in Egypt, Syria and other nations where people do not even have basic rights 🙁
But we are blessed. We should be thankful for what we get, live our lives with joy, make a difference if we can and pray for the people who are suffering 🙂
I almost feel a bit guilty about adding a shopping haul to this conversation but let’s just imagine a world full of rainbows for everyone 🙂

I love buying souvenirs from important places so I picked up a “mother of pearl” ball point pen from the Souvenir shop in the museum. It costs 5000 Korean Won (~4$).
We had to change trains from the Gangnam station so I also picked up a couple of rich nail paints from Nature Republic store in the station (also featured in my NOTD this week)
And I had been wanting to try a new brand for skincare so I decided to experiment using a Travel Kit before buying the full-size products. The kit was available in a supermarket near my home o picked this at night when I went grocery shoppin (ahem!).Mamonde is a great brand and I loved using their Face Masksheets. So fingers crossed for skincare!
I will be reviewing the Mamonde skincare products once I use these products, which I believe will last me a week. So this was my random huge haul consisting of itty-bitty hauls. Hope you enjoyed reading it! Have you tried Korean cosmetic brands?
