HAPPY CHUSEOK!!

From Wikipedia:

Chuseok (Korean: 추석), originally known as Hangawi (한가위) (from archaic Korean for “great middle”), is a major harvest festival and a three-day holiday in Korea celebrated on the 15th day of the 8th month of the lunar calendar. Like many other harvest festivals, it is held around the Autumn Equinox. As a celebration of the good harvest, Koreans visit their ancestral hometowns and share a feast of Korean traditional food such as songpyeon.

In modern South Korea, on Chuseok there is a mass exodus of Koreans as they return to their hometowns to pay respects to the spirits of their ancestors. People perform ancestral worship rituals early in the morning. They often visit the tombs of their immediate ancestors to trim plants and clean the area around the tomb, and offer food, drink, and crops to their ancestors. Harvest crops are attributed to the blessing of ancestors.

One of the major foods prepared and eaten during the Chuseok holiday is songpyeon (송편), a crescent-shaped rice cake which is steamed upon pine needles. Other foods commonly prepared are japchae, bulgogi and fruits.

A variety of folk games are played on Chuseok to celebrate the coming of Autumn and rich harvest. Village folk dress themselves to look like a cow or a turtle, and go from house to house along with a Nongak band playing music. Other common folk games played on Chuseok are tug of war, ssireum, archery and gama fighting. Folk games also vary from region to region. Ganggangsullae dance which is forming a circle under a moon is performed by women and children in southwestern coastal regions, and cockfight or bullfighting in the southern regions.

I’ve seen Drew in person once and she was…STUNNING…to say the least.  Incredibly small and skinny~ she was super sweet to all the restaurant patrons and staff.  It’s nice to see such a huge celebrity acting humbly and doing the best she can to remain “normal”.

Drew is gracing the covers of BAZAAR magazine this month~ take a look at her glamorous shots!

Fashion Crisis: Black Tie Formal

I’m going to my first “grown-up” wedding.  My friend is having a black tie affair where the women are requested to wear floor length gowns and the men, tuxes.  Do I have anything fancy like this?  Negative.  I always have this old school “stuffy” idea of black tie balls where old white people get together and laugh about the silly economy while their many maids and butlers serve them on their hands and knees.  Quite silly of me, I know.

But after doing some research on what “Black Tie” attire really is on netaporter.com, I found GORGEOUS dresses that were elegant and fashion forward.  Although I have no clue what I’ll be wearing, I’m excited to have so many chic options to choose from!

Now I’m totally imagining a wedding where I’m holding a glass of champagne while posing for cheesy pictures with my busted cannon and eating delicious hor dourves~ =D

LC is getting her own reality show (again)!!  This time, however, it will be on her time and her schedule.  When she wants to stop filming, the cameras will be turned off.  LC wants this new series to accurately reflect her journey, career and life without the drama that Laguna Hills and The Hills brought.  Every network is fighting to buy the show and air it~

Can’t WAIT to see it!  LC was and always will be my fave <3
