Hey guys welcome back to the blog, my name is Star Lengas and it’s been a long minute since I’ve updated the blog and updated ya on the happenings of my life, my wanderlust, my k-beauty obsessions, and just like errrthang!
Last time, we officially talked I was en route to Bali, Cambodia, Seoul Fashion Week, Togo, Hong Kong, and Thailand — I was officially a jetsetter and I was LOVING IT! I spent the majority of my summer in Seoul, with a quick bae-cation to Jeju Island, had some supremely awesome Korean skincare facials and a minor plastic surgery mishap, celebrated my 30th birthday on a rooftop in Hongdae, and created the first ever Seoul Blogger Brunch! (oh and if you’re sitting there shocked, clearly you need to be following me on Instagram & Facebook, duh!)
Writing that sounds amazing but the proof is totes in the pudding, which means I will be backtracking back to February 2017 to fully tell the tale of my journey into becoming a creativepreneur and the perks/pitfalls of it all, plus I’ve rocked like 4 different hairstyles, and that needssss to be discussed!
WATCH MY VIDEO (& keep on reading):
BUT, before we jump into the past, let’s skip to the here and now. I’ve gone through a lot of changes since you last saw me, the most significant being my move to Texas (#ArmyWifeLife). You heard me correctly. Texas. If you’re unfamiliar with Texas, just pull up anything by Beyonce and the Dixie Chicks.
However, I can’t front like my return to America was all bad, because I spent the past month vacationing on Rhode Island & Cape Cod, coupled with day trips to Boston, Plymouth, and Salem. Not to mention, after 6 years of marriage my family FINALLY met my husband’s family and that was drama good. After we left the east coast and began our drive to Texas. We stopped briefly in Indiana to visit my bestie before finally arriving in cowboy country. Sidenote: a rocking playlist is the ONLY way to make it through a cross-country drive … oh and listening to Harry Potter on audible #life
As of this posting, we’ve been in Texas for 10 days and I have spent the majority of the time – holed up in our hotel while downing my sorrows in tacos & margaritas… oh and house hunting because that’s important.
In closing, 3 facts remain:
- I no longer living in Seoul and I feel gutted every time I see all the funners my friends are having back in South Korea.
- Texas cannot hold up to the awesomeness that was living abroad in Asia … especially since I’m 8-10 hours from major cities like Dallas & Houston! Talk about, sacrilegious for any wanderlust-er! There is a local airport 20 minutes away, so I’m already plotting my adventures from the borderlands.
- Life is always fun as a redhead (but I’m also contemplating a color shit to mark my new mood … what say you? Back to Black or Purple Rain?
What have you been up to these past few months? Leave a comment below and tell me what you’ve been up to these past few months!
P.S. I’m actually super keen to explore the USA, so do let me know which cities I should visit. Do you have any fun travel plans for the rest of 2017? What songs are you vibing to at the moment? For me, it’s anything by LionBabe! ^^
