Korean fashion magazines

One of the things I like about Korean magazines are the freebies that they give away. I remember when I was in Korea last year, they were actually givng away a potted plant! Singapore magazines have gotten into that act in recent years but they normally give away bags, scarves and sometimes sunglasses. They're ok, but not terribly exciting.

Ever since I started bringing in Korean magazines, I have always looked forward each month to see what the freebies are and some of them have been amazing---full size lipstick, handheld vacumm, sneakers and even boots! I kid you not. Plastic, colourful boots.

Anyway, back to the freebies. Oh! Actually, the Korean magazines don't call them freebies. they call them presents. haha! Sounds better right?

This is from Ceci












Quite sweet right? There's even lining in the skirt. And it's got elastic band..to fit the various sizes ^^

Personally, i would have preferred it in green or yellow but I guess white is universal and easier to match....




Ecole magazine is giving away 2 items- a hooded top






















...and a set of sample size shampoo/conditioner. A friend was just commenting today that she would be tempted to try the shamppoo as the ad by Cho In Sung and Ha Ji Won is quite good. I guess in this case, the advertisement did really worked.




















Well, I won't be rushing out to buy this shampoo but if it was BYJ on the product, then that's a different story.... haha!

But more than the freebies, I am also often fascinated by the fashion spreads inside...




I really like the colorful tank top and it being paired with the shorts. Nicely casual. But alas, don't think I'm young enough to carry off this look... sigh... However I like the vintage look too....and this style I can take coz I 'vintage' enough. hahaha!

And these 2 pages.... haha! all my shoe lovers friends will be drooling over them...



Must say I'm not easily seduced by shoes....not because I don't like them. But because I can't buy shoes off the rack as they have to be custom made... But it's still a thrill to pour over them. Nice right? It's summer now in Korea, hence the spread on sandals, I guess.

Sigh.... makes me want to go shopping in Korea.....
