Fashion Try On

Hi guys, how are you? Is everything alright? Even tho the lockdown is looser now, but that doesn't mean that the situation is okay. I heard about super Saturday last week, it was crazy! There are some new COVID-19 cases again in the UK after a bunch of people went to the pub, like a herd of hungry goats. They risked their lives and other people lives for something worldly. Was that really necessary? I don't know.

For me, I don't mind waiting for a little bit longer to go out like the usual. Stay at home and doing fashion is fun as well. Let's check my latest stuff from Femme Luxe!

June's Haul

Hi teman-teman, sekarang sudah bulan July. Belakangan ini aku cukup bersemangat karena lockdown sepertinya sudah mulai diperlonggar di Inggris. Karena lockdown cukup bikin stress (bahkan aku yang introvert), jadi aku banyak belanja online untuk menyalurkan rasa frustasiku. Apalagi karena summer jadi banyak sale, lumayan aku sering dapat extra sale untuk belanja di sini. Puji Tuhan aku punya tabungan sendiri dan budget untuk belanja, jadi lumayan gak bikin aku stress semasa lockdown. :)

My New Yoga Mat!

Hi guys, welcome again to my blog. Today, I'm going to share about my new yoga mat I bought from Amazon. It just arrived a few days ago, and I have used it several times until now. That's why today I'm quite confident to give you a review of this yoga mat.

The Ordinary AHA BHA Peeling Solution

As a woman who suffered from hormonal acne, I have big pores and uneven skin texture. I also have some natural freckles on my skin, and it is genetic. My big pores have caused many skin problems, one of them is blackheads. I hate blackheads because I think they look so nasty. I hope my pores to stay clean.

Cara aku survive masa lockdown di Inggris

Hallo semua, kali ini aku ingin share mengenai cara aku menghadapi masa-masa lockdown di Inggris. Kebetulan, minggu ini lockdown sudah tidak seketat sebelumnya. Semua toko retail sudah boleh buka sejak senin kemarin dan Indoor Market juga sudah buka selasa kemarin.

Menghadapi wabah virus di negara orang merupakan hal yang tidak pernah aku sangka sebelumnya. Apalagi dengan adanya sentimen terhadap etnis China, jujur aku sangat cemas.

Casual and Basic Pieces

Hello guys, how are you? I hope we can pass through this lockdown safely. I read the news and notice that some retail stores are allowed to open tomorrow. I've never been so happy about going out. Originally, I'm an introvert, and so is my husband. Even though we love staying at home, but this is really too much.

We also need some refreshments outdoor like trees, flowers and cafes.

Tony Moly Liptone Get It Tint

Hi guys, I want to share my favourite affordable Lip Tint from Tony Moly. Tony Moly is a beauty brand from Korea, and they're really popular because of their Tony Tint. When I think about a Lip Tint, I always think of Tony Moly, unconsciously. :)

Furla Handbags from Italy

Hi guys, I just want to share one of my experiences in finding the bag I want. When I researched about the handbags, I found more stories behind the Furla brand. It is an Italian brand and known for its quality leather handbags. Italy made a lot of great leather handbags, and most high-fashioned brands are from Italy.

Blue Dress with Ruffles Look

Morning Yoga Routine

Hi guys, I'm back in the blogging sphere lately, and I'm very content these days. One of the reasons is because I can manage my mental health quite well. Besides that, I've noticed that my severe insomnia is getting a little bit better as well.

Latest Beauty Hauls!

Hi ladies, if you've seen my post about my fashion hauls here, this post is about my beauty hauls. It's not as long as the fashion hauls, but I just want to share about them. :D

Since three years ago, I didn't buy a lot of makeup anymore. I invested more in skincare products because I love my skin. I personally think skincare is more important than makeup, if you don't have good skin, your makeup won't look good in real life. Of course, I need makeup in my life, and I love makeup! However, now, my priority is my skin. :)

Some New Clothes For Summer

A few days ago, I received my new set of clothes from FEMME LUXE. I've picked some pastel and white colour pieces for the spring. Now, I'm currently enjoying the spring and so excited for the summer, even though the country still in lockdown. 

The weather is surprisingly satisfying this week, I love the spring breeze and the lovely sun. Plus, some new clothes really boost my mood! :)

Why I pick Coach over Michael Kors

Let's go back at the end of February. At that time, I wanted to get some new handbags for my spring/summer trip. At first, I was eyeing on the new Carmen Satchels from Michael Kors in Light Sand. It looks so pretty in the Ad with Bella Hadid as the muse.

My husband and I decided to visit Michael Kors boutique at the mall to observe Carmen satchel in real life. We entered the store and was welcomed politely by the staff. All the Carmens were all displayed on the front store, except the Light Sand colour.

Fashion Hauls from March to May (Long Post)

Reading time:     7 min 51 sec

This year's lockdown has hit everyone hard. I find that many people do online shopping a lot at this time to indulge themselves. Well, I'm one of those people, and I think it's okay as long as I can afford it. Like nobody gets hurt, right? :)

Venice Travel Video

Quarantine has hit everyone hard here. We're expecting for summer holiday soon but things seem still far away. We should be in Greece last week but our plan has cancelled because of coronavirus. I don't want to feel disappointed, this is something we didn't expect. Everyone is having the same disappointment.

I should be grateful really. We still can sleep peacefully at night and we just need to stay at home now.

Some new addition to my wardrobe

Fashion is something that makes me feel alive. I dress-up not for other people, but to feel good about my self. I have a very special bond with my clothes. I used to get attached to my favourite clothes, and I treat them with lots of love. 

I also hand-washed most of my clothes, because I want to maintain their shape. I think being attentive to something I love is rewarding.

It's not the place but the heart

Spring is coming to the UK but the weather still a bit cold for a tropical woman like me. These days, I feel so much better and alive, like everything is quite manageable. Perhaps, I just wish it will stay like this forever, I mean my sanity.

Life in here is good, but for me, it's not the place that is the most important for me. Life is good depends on where I put my heart. It depends on how I see and think about this life. Without that awareness, no matter where I settle up, nothing will change.

I'm 33 today!

I'm 33 now, what a cute number. It's in the middle of 30 and 35. I couldn't believe the fact that I'll reach 35 soon in a few years, time flies really! To think about it, I have been married for 1 and a half year, and will soon reach my second year. Btw, it's almost my second year in the UK as well.

Those bags are the birthday present from my husband. :D

Dueba Puffy 3 Tones / 3CE Creamy Waterproof Eyeliner

This post is an unpublished draft I forgot to press back then

2009 was probably the year when I first discovered about Circle Lens. I still remember when I saw some Chinese girls on the internet and wondered why their pupils are so big and so black, lol. I plainly thought that they're blessed with big and round eyes. /innocentme

Fashion haul from last week!

Clothes, Clothes and clothes. We can't get enough of them. I know during this quarantine, everyone is trying their best to stay sane. It happens to me as well. Honestly, online shopping is one of the most fulfilling activities for me. I love browsing through some collections online and decide which one to get after that. It makes me relax and happier afterwards even though I don't always purchase everything I've seen.

Purple Pink Sky in Nice and Fireworks

Nice is one of the most beautiful beaches in French Riviera that I'd like to visit. French Riviera aka Côte d'Azur is the Mediterranean seashore in southeastern of France that is famous for the beautiful beaches.

After our trip to Rome here, we took the flight to France, specifically, Nice. We arrived just a few hours before the sunset. I still remember how my heart widened happily for the fact that we finally arrived in Nice. It was a lovely way to spend our evening.

Stay at Home fashion

During these three weeks of lockdown, I think I started to feel unbalanced. Oh well, I was utterly foolish naturally but this is on a different level. With all those coronavirus news everywhere, it drives everyone mad.

Mad about staying at home despite the sunny weather. Mad because of all the cancelled summer trips. Mad about almost everything because this pandemic serves great distress to all of us.

I've noticed that my 'overcoming' journey in my mental health is not been so great. I mean, everything seems not fun anymore? With me being a potato from head to toe every single day, it's like declaring my self to be one of the soil residents.

Then I decided to have a little fun by my self. It's not so hard. The first thing I do is stopping my self to be spoiled as a potato. I have decided to dress up even though I'm at home. Wear something fancier by providing my self with some casual loungewear, I guess it's not so wrong eh?

Feeling pretty is good for my mental health, lol.

My Going Out Tops

Reading Time | 3 min 13 sec

How are you guys? Still sane during this epidemic? I am really trying to keep my sanity on the full tank cos it's slowly killing me. I know as an introvert staying at home is not a problem for me, but the tense really hit me hard during the first few days of the lockdown in the UK.

I have tried to keep myself calm like keep doing some of my usual activities like reading, writing and cooking. Plus a new addition, like watching some films but sometimes it didn't really seem to work fantastically. My anxiety, yes, I find it hard to cope with it lately.

One more thing that cutely sparks a little joy in me is unbelievably shopping for some clothes, shoes and bags. Not for any special occasion, but it just my old habit starts to appear again during these so-called quarantine days.

I'm most relaxed when I browse through my wardrobe, I mean it's like my little treasure. I love fashion since I was a kid, but I didn't have any chances to get some clothes for my self back then. I was a poor kid okay with no money, lol. After I started to get some money for myself (without my parent's help), I felt like floating on the fluffy clouds.

Do you get what I mean? It's girl stuff you know. 🥰

My Hectic Last Day in Rome

Reading Time    |    6 min 27 sec

Oh, how I wish Italy is the same as it was before. Seeing all the news about the recent case in Italy is concerning. It hurts my heart, but I can't do anything for them except a prayer. Let's pray together for Italy and the world. This epidemic takes a lot of lives around the world, ready or not; we're at this age, so please implement social distancing wherever you are.

I'm going to continue my writing about my travel diary in Rome now. I hope you're not growing bored of me, lol. Since we all can't travel right now, I want to embrace my memories and write it down so I could treasure it.

The Vatican Museum and St. Peter's Basilica

Reading Time    |    10 min 21 sec     

Last summer in Rome was sweltering. We went to Vatican city on our second day in Rome. Did you know that Vatican City is the world's smallest recognized independent country? I was surprised that this little city has a population of fewer than 1000 people living within the Vatican walls.

And it is one of UNESCO's world heritage sites with its walled enclave nestled within Rome.

Fashion Coord 0.4 - March

Reading Time    |     2 min 42 sec

A white dress is one of the best choices to stay glowing and angelic. Most people would choose black instead of white because they say black looks classier. I think it depends on the style of the dress and the look you want to achieve.

Plus, your personality.

This is a secret, but my husband fell in love with me when I wore a white dress.

Farewell My Angel

Cerita ini ingin aku tulis dalam bahasa Indonesia.

Minggu lalu, aku menerima berita yang sangat mengejutkan dari my sis. Hachi, salah satu guguk peliharaanku mendadak pingsan. Aku sangat sedih dan hari itu aku tidak dapat berhenti menangis karena katanya kemungkinan Hachi tidak akan bisa diselamatkan. My sis sudah sangat merana karena dia menunda membawa Hachi ke dokter beberapa kali walaupun sudah diingatkan oleh papa.

Aku tidak dapat melakukan apapun untuk Hachi selain berdoa dan berdoa kepada Tuhan. Hatiku sangat sakit dan aku tidak dapat berhenti menangis saat aku berada di gereja. Aku hanya dapat menangis dan berteriak memohon agar Tuhan menyelamatkan Hachi.

Tidak dapat berhenti menangis, mendadak salah satu kenalanku di gereja (a chinese malay) bertanya ada apa denganku. Aku memberitahunya kalau aku sedang sangat sedih karena peliharaanku sedang sakit parah dan kemungkinan ia tidak dapat diselamatkan. Alih-alih bersimpati, ia malah sedikit tertawa dan berkata, "It's just a dog you know, God is more important!". Aku hanya terdiam dan sakit hati sekali dengan perkataan dia.

Padahal aku ingin meminta tolong dia untuk membantu mendoakan Hachi, tapi sepertinya itu tidak penting buat dia. Aku sadar bahwa tidak mungkin semua orang peduli pada binatang dan mencintai mereka layaknya mahkluk hidup. Aku juga mengerti mungkin dia tidak mengerti kesedihanku. Tapi please, at least, bisa kan menunjukkan sedikit sympathy? Atau kalau tidak bisa, lebih baik diam saja daripada kata-kata tersebut dapat menyakiti orang lain.

Karena aku jujur jadi kepikiran terus, namun aku mencoba memaafkan dia, mungkin dia tidak mengerti apa yang dia lakukan.

Rome: The Roman Empire

Reading Time    |     9 min 39 sec.

Rome has been around for almost three thousand years and yet carries all that weight of history with their Roman empire dominance around Europe. We all learned about it in school, right? When I first read and studied the history of ancient Rome, my mind wandered and imagined how powerful they were.

Fashion Coord 0.2

It's February already! How are you guys? I had just come back from my trip to Jakarta a few weeks ago. I didn't have much time to update on my social media and my blog because many things happened that made me super anxious. Well, shits occurred.

It was a lovely and busy trip, though. I had a fabulous stay with my family, but it was super hectic until I couldn't meet with any friends. We have priority, and our first priority is our family. I miss some of my friends, though, but I'm sure they will understand my difficulties. It's not easy to be a wife, a daughter and a daughter in law at the same time!

Anyway, just a little update up there and I'm ready to share some fashion coordinates for this month! They are from my favourite one-stop shopping online store - Femme Luxe. I had chosen four pieces which is suit my taste and my body. Fyi, I'm 167cm.

If you're looking for some inspirations for your wardrobe, you might continue to read the whole post until the end.  :)

#1 Obsession = TEA

Reading Time    |    6 min 49 sec

Last year, I made a poll on my IG story about whether I should make a blog post about my tea selection as many people have been asking me about that. Many people voted Yes instead of No, and because I have a bit time this week (before I go back to Indo), I've decided to make the post ASAP.

2019's Story in a Wrap

Reading Time    |    7 min 54 sec

Last year was a roller-coaster for me. It was a healing year where I positively braved my self to dig deeper to the root; to study more about my self and accept all my obscurest side. It was the year where I earned my true peace and freedom as well. It was not a happy journey, but it was worth it and full of blessings.
