Funky Town

Oasap was kind enough to send me this adorable tosca bag. It's small and it's perfect when I'm feeling like being hassle-free. I supposed everyone agrees that the smaller the bag, the freer you feel. Not to mention it's a sling bag so both my hands are free to do whatever they please. Anyway, Oasap has tons of adorable items and I spent hours drooling on their items. LOL. So quick visit their webstore!

Feeling a bit forlorn today so I decided to dress up as colorful as possible to lift up my mood. It succeed! I feel super funky in this blue and yellow ensemble. Felt there was something missing so I decided to throw on a pink blazer and tadaa! I'll see you in Funky Town!

Been wearing it every chance I got a.k.a. obsessed.


I'm exhausted. My body sores, my head aches like crazy, and my eyes are droopy. The four days trip was filled with good food and even better company (sisterly love!) and I'm currently sorting through hundred of pictures. I guess I'm calling it a night early today. I have to face the piling work we've been putting off for that trip. Totally worth it tho!
Sweet dreams, all <3

Ring-a-ring-a-roses

Ashes, ashes,
We all fall down

Feeling a bit childish lately. I got grumpy and solemn every time things didn't go my way. LOL
Guess I need some self-reflection time to get back to my adult self.
Anyway, this is a scheduled-post and I promised I'll start blogstalking your lovely blogs by Wednesday!
Wishing everyone steer away from the usual Monday blue!



Flower Power

I honestly would say a big fat NO to this dress if you asked me two year ago. LOL. But somehow, with unfathomable power, this flowery pattern has found its way to my closet for quite some time.. There's something very feminine and demure about this pattern and that was one of the reason I didn't wear flowery pattern much. I was known as the girly girl, the sweet shy one, and I guess I was just trying to break out of that stereotype. 

I used to wear a lot of black, almost no pink, black nails, leather jackets, lots of plaids, lots of oversized tee, baggy jeans, converses, and even a backpack. So that was me two years ago. If you saw my earlier posts, just when I started blogging, you'll see glimpses of my old self. However, as time progress, I realized it's exhausting to deny yourself. So what if I'm a girly girl? Honestly, even in a tee and jeans and converse, I still look girly. I did once want to be cool androgynous looking people. In my eyes, they were the 'IT' girl and only those kind of people who rule the world. I guess some common sense finally hit me and I learned to embrace my true self.

This is my last post with my long bangs. I cut it and also trimmed my hair. Not much of a length-change, I feel my hair a lot lighter tho, but the bangs changed quite a bit. Haha. Anyway, the sun is finally out here in Bandung! Took an outfit pic at last.. 
I'll be away for a few days for a short trip. Scheduled a post on Monday, with my new bangs, so be sure to come back and check it out :)

Hope everyone will have a splendid weekend!


Instagram Week Recap

I saw everyone in blogsphere doing this and it actually looks fun, therefore I thought I should give it a try. In addition, it has been raining all day everyday here in Bandung, hence, I haven't been able to take any outfit pictures. Boo.. But the good news is, I am definitely loving the cold weather and curling up in bed with hot coco <3

Taking selcas with sis while waiting for Mom who was busy shopping.. Haha

Blueberry muffin and milk for a rushed breakfast time!

This cat lives in my dad's waterpark and she's super friendly so my sis and I made her the mascot and named her Boom (taken from Waterboom. I know, we are super creative)

Hot chocolate.. Yummy!

My 87 year old grandma that still rocking! <3

Ah.. Monday blue..



Tried a new restaurant called Herb&Spice. The decoration is quite interesting and artistic with jars of spices and herbs everywhere. The food was quite tasty as well :)

Well that was from last week. 
I promise I'll try my best to find time to take outfit pictures!


Oh Simple Things Where Have You Gone

I walked across an empty land
I knew the pathway like the back of my hand

I felt the earth beneath my feet
Sat by the river and it made me complete

Oh simple thing where have you gone
I'm getting old and I need something to rely on
So tell me when you're gonna let me in
I'm getting tired and I need somewhere to begin

I came across a fallen tree
I felt the branches of it looking at me
Is this the place we used to love?
Is this the place that I've been dreaming of?

Oh simple thing where have you gone
I'm getting old and I need something to rely on
So tell me when you're gonna let me in
I'm getting tired and I need somewhere to begin


And if you have a minute why don't we go
Talk about it somewhere only we know?
This could be the end of everything
So why don't we go
Somewhere only we know?








This could be the end of everything
So why don't we go
So why don't we go
This could be the end of everything
So why don't we go
Somewhere only we know?

Lyrics from Somewhere Only We Know by Keane

I miss play-dates, sharing secrets under the bed, laughing out loud with no worries, no obligation, no peer pressure, pinching each other as hard as we could, running around like there's no tomorrow in an empty ground, picking out wild flowers, catching butterflies, having adventure at the backyard, hair-braiding each other, secretly going through Mom's make up, walking hand-in-hand to the nearest candy store, licking the lollipops 'till we had colorful tongues, riding at the back of my dad's bicycle to buy dinner, drinking hot milk before going to sleep.. Just the simple things.. 

I couldn't help to feel that each individual are growing apart. 
It's inevitable.
It's something I get used to.
Togetherness seems like a rareness.
I feel like I'm sort of a walking contradiction. I miss the simple things of being together yet I'm locking my self in my room and typing all this. Haha. Oh silly me.

Happy Sunday, all :)



Three Ways

Finally a new post! I was sick AGAIN. I'm not sure what is up with my immune system lately. Not too happy about it tho.. Boo.. I'm starting to take vitamins again and I guess I should stopped being such a nocturnal. Trying my best to be in bed by midnight and can only hope I stop getting sick!

Enough whimpering, last weekend, as I mentioned, I went to Jakarta for a short meet up (actually I had a wedding and a birthday. Quite busy weekend indeed) with my darling friends :)

Me, my sister (from Little Thing About Life), and my friend, Winny from fashion is talking about style decided to get on board with the fishtail skirt trend. Our friends told us we look like we're about to perform or something. I do think so! With our colorful outfit and our different style.. It's fun to see how one interpret a trend! Although, I must say, Winny and I have such similar styling! ;p

Lovey Dovey

Last year, I did a Chocolate Love post where I did five outfit shots with a pink item in each outfit for different setting. This year, I thought it would be fun to create another five outfit shots for your Valentine Day, but this year, will be differentiate with your choice of style. It's fun to play dress up every other day!

(1) Everybody's Sweetheart
Go for this kind of outfit when you want to be loved by everyone. Haha.. Nothing fancy or sexy but definitely chic. Your parents, boyfriend, boyfriend's parents, and even your boyfriend's ex will love you if you dress up in a cute and lovely way. Add your best smile, with a dash of your sweet manner and you are irresistible! ;p

flower headband - thrifted, rose bracelet - from Mom, pale pink dress - Zara, white belt - thrifted, 
bag - vintage, black pumps - Zonzo

(2) Social Butterfly
Yes, been loving the social butterfly term for a few days.. Anyway, when you're one of that person with oh-so-many-I-can't-count friends and fans, you will want to look your absolute best at those Valentine's Day parties you've been invited to. Be the spotlight stealer with a hot pink dress and bold gold accessorizing. Go unpredictable with red shoes to paved the Socialista status. Be mysterious and friendly at the same time and you are ready to fly.

bag - Fiorelli, shoes - Decimal

(3) True Prep
Preppy style is not limited for the A-straights-students only! It's for everybody who's feeling like looking sharp and educated on Valentine's Day. I supposed this kind of outfit will be perfect when you're going on a corporate V-Day event. Or just meeting up with your future parents-in-law for the first time ;)
Go with well-structured dress, a black and white could never go wrong, and to make it even more preppy, throw on a bold pink blazer. Remember, it's all about class, neat, and elegance.

(4) The Girl Next Door
Think approachable, cute, and demure. She's the girl you admire from afar because she always look pleasant and polite to everyone. She seems like the girl who give away cupcakes just because it's a beautiful day to bake. I supposed it's similar to Everybody's Sweetheart with less fashionable taste. Go with simple day-dress that's not too fancy, you want to get the approachable vibe. I added a modest yet adorable wooden heels with bows to complete the look. Clip-on bows and you're ready for that heart-to-heart convo.

(5) A Well-Dressed Rebel
Forget pink. Go black and rebellious with all black with leopard pattern for the cherry top. To keep the Valentine theme I wear my heart-shaped sling bag. Be sassy and go against the flow, but don't be bitchy and keep the swear words for yourself. Swear words make you look cheap and uneducated. Besides, it's a day to celebrate love. You can still be rebellious and well-mannered. Actually, I'm not sure that's possible. But looking rebellious sure doesn't mean you have to act like a rebel! Just find the perfect balance of luxe and edge <3

Hopefully everyone is having the best Valentine's Day ever. Either it be with boyfriends, family, or simply your beloved dog. I bet Cupid is extremely busy these days. Making everyone in a lovey dovey mood. LOL. I personally won't do anything special. I probably won't celebrate it at all. How sad.. But! Life is too short to be sad so I'll be awesome instead :D (thank you legendary Barney Stinson for your wise advices).

I'll just leave you with one quotes from Mary Alice of Desperate Housewives (I love a lot of her quotes but I'll keep it short for you) that has been my guide lately.. Haha..

"The vow is simple, really. Those who take it promise to stay together for better or for worse. For richer or for poorer. In sickness and in health. To honor and to cherish. Forsaking all others. Until death do us part. Yes, the vow is simple. Finding someone worthy of such a promise is the hard part. But if we can, that’s when we begin to live happily ever after."
