Homemade Dalgona Coffee + Ppopgi

I made a YouTube video! I'm sharing a quick how-to with the ever so popular Dalgona Coffee, but this time with the actual dalgona candy, aka ppopgi aka honeycomb candy. I made the candy by hand as well and will work on a video to share just that.

Ingredient list:

2 tablespoons of instant coffee (make sure it doesn't have the added sugar or creamer, it won't work!)
2 tablespoons of granulated sugar (you can add a little less, but it will take longer to get whipped)
2 tablespoons of hot water
1 cupful of ice
1 cup of milk or any milk substitute


  1. In a large bowl, add the instant coffee, sugar, and hot water together. With a whisk, beater, frother (I'd recommend an electric one), start combining and mixing together. It can take up to 5 to 8 minutes for it to get to a light and fluffy consistency. Once nice and fluffy, set aside.
  2. In a cup (glass preferred), fill it up with ice.
  3. Pour until around 3/4 fill
  4. Add the whipped coffee mixture and top with dalgona (honeycomb candy)
  5. Take your photos and then mix together when you're ready to drink!

8 Popular Indoor Photoshoot Ideas

Happy Friday! I've done my fair share of scrolling on my phone during quarantine and I've found tons of inspiration online for indoor photoshoot ideas with most items you may already have at home. I've condensed it down to my top 8 favorites and some of the most popular ones I've seen on my feeds. If you're looking for something to do this weekend or need to create content for the week, continue reading below!

Clothing rack/closet

This works for both a closet or clothing rack. Organize and fill it with your favorite pieces, stand or sit in front of it (or peek through) and snap away! Another good way to do this is to hang your clothes the molding of your door frame or even if you have a bathroom curtain rod.

Couch or chair

Whether you sit upright, upside down, stand on it, or are laying down, there are many options for a fun shoot here. Play around with different arms and leg shapes, add pillows, blankets or anything else you have around.

Stuffed animals or pillows

Whether you're like me and love all the cute things, have fun shaped pillows, or seasonal themed throw pillows, whatever puffy thing you may have, it makes for a great prop. Toss them in the air, stack them, lay on them, pair them with your couch (above) or display them for a fun photoshoot idea.

Take it indoors or out, a mirror is a fun way to take photos. It's a bit difficult to try to get someone to take it (or even yourself) without seeing the camera in it, but selfies work too! If you want to make it a little extra special, use a sticker app like PicsArt to give it a lift!

From Harry Potter to Game of Thrones, or books from school or recipe books, whatever you have around your home can be used as a prop! I set mines up and used PicsArt to give it a magical feel, but you could also set books up on a table and using them as props, or laying down 'reading the book'. It makes for a fun prop with tons of potential to create a whole array of content.

Magazines (or newspapers)

This one takes a bit of time but is one of my favorites and totally worth it! I had to ask my mom and my boyfriend's mom for magazines to use and love how it turned out. We randomly selected images with a focus on food/nature/minimal words. For newspapers, it's a little easier but the concept is the same: collect your articles, tape them together, tape/tack them on, and snap away =)

Food/ice cream

This one is a favorite because food is involved, hehe. Here I have two different shoots in front of a blank wall. One with ice cream from @mollmoonicecream, and one with ice cream macarons from @Macadons, both in front of a blank space. To give it something extra, I used PicsArt again. This works for any edible items you have at home. I've seen people utilize fruit and color coordinated their outfits, to using food as an hair/makeup accessory, to throwing it up in the air like confetti.

Flowers/fake flowers

Last but not least we have the use of flowers as a prop for an indoor photoshoot! Whether you have some growing in your yard, an indoor plant, fake flowers, or pluck one or two from the neighbors (or maybe not, haha),  change your outfit and use the same flowers and have fun with different poses. You can also use one, or all if you have a bouquet. Put them in your hair, tuck them in your shoes or pants; get creative with it!

And that's it! 8 of my favorite popular indoor photoshoot ideas. I hope this inspires you to be creative and have some fun over the weekend.

Do you have other indoor photoshoot ideas? What are your favorites? I'd love to hear!
