How are you? 

When writing this, I'm in my office listening to a song by Rhye called Song for You. It's a calming song,for my heart. Currently I'm in such a good condition, I'm full of excitement and also, a touch of nervous. In this post, I'll tell you why. 

As I grow, I learned that self-love is not only about pamper time and taking care of your body. But self-love also means to take back control, do what you want to do, do what's making you happy. So for a healthier mind & soul, I'm taking back the control. I'm getting out from an unhealthy working environment, and I'm starting fresh in a new place soon. And really, I don't think I've ever felt this relief getting out of something unhealthy. I'm a bit proud of myself that I took that power and made this big decision. 

I am now in a happy state that my heart is full. I got an exciting thing waiting for me. I've just signed with another 2 photography projects. I'm back on track with my exercises. And.. I'm getting married in 1 month! 

So girls, you can not let anything disturb the peace of your mind & soul. Because that's the most important thing. When you see an opportunity knocks, you gotta take it. Take risk & make the best of it. Believe in God's plan that the chances are coming in the right timing. There's no better timing than God's timing, don't you agree?

Hi guys!

As you can see on the title, yes, the wedding is happening in 1 month! Don't ask me how it feels because I honestly can not explain what I feel now. It's a mixture of excitement, happiness, a bit of worry, "not-knowing-what-will-happen-next", and lots and lots of other feelings. 

After I look back to my life in the previous years, suddenly I realize that I've been living my best best  best life. I had a blessed life & now it's time for me to change my life from being single, to being someone's wife. There will be soooo many changes in my life, I obviously can not tell you now because I don't know yet, but there will be a blog post about that, too, of course. 

I've been dating my man, my best friend, for more than 6 years now. And for the past 2 years, I learnt a lot, being a working girl and balancing professional & personal life. It is a blessed that I have a job that I love, family that is supportive, friends who are fun, and my man, who's crazy enough to be with me through thick and thin.

I've been living on my own for the past 2 years. It's me, myself, and I who supports my own financial life. And also I've been living alone since the very first day I got a job. Yes, I'm working in Jakarta and my family is in Bekasi, which is not so far and you guys might think why didn't I just live in Bekasi. And actually, I thank God that I live on my own, away from my parents, for these past 2 years. I learnt a lot on being independent, on being able to wake up, get ready, get breakfast, go to work, and all until I go home and go to bed at night - all on my own. I don't depend on others for every aspect in my life. And I thank God that I've made the decision to live on my own. Because now, I'm ready to really be "on my own" after marriage. Now I see what's the point that foreigners have this habit to always get out of their homes after they turns 18. And I thank God for that. 

So yes, the journey to the wedding day has been very exciting, yet surprising me with all these mature thoughts lately. All good now, I'm blessed.

Hi guys! Since this is the end of the month, you know what time it is.. yes, June Favorites! Lets jump right in:

Top by cottonink, Jeans by Pomelo, Shoes by Charles & Keith

There are 2 things that I've been wearing a lot lately. The first one is my all-new classic croco sandal from Charles & Keith. It suits all outfits and is perfect for a laid-back style, I've been wearing it all day long since I bought these (you might already saw it on the 'gram). The second item I've been wearing is my necklaces from Pull&Bear. So far I've owned 3 necklaces from Pull&Bear, they are the Saturn charm, the half-moon charm, and the leaf charm. I guess they are all simple & chic for every occasion.

I've been facing some acne problem on my oily skin. And as you know, I am obsessed with my acne oil treatment from The Body Shop, so I get myself a product from the same series, which is Tea Tree Face Toner, and so far I've been loving it! It makes my skin well-moisturized but not leaving any stickiness, and it helps prevents redness from the acne. If your skin is as oily and acne-prone skin as mine, go give it a try, it's a bit pricey for a toner, but worth the price. 

- Beautiful Fool by Jorja Smith
- Spell by Niki
- Hands by Rayssa Dynta (she's a local singer, a total gem!)
To hear the songs, you can easily browse my playlist here. Enjoy!

There you go, my June Favorites. See you in my next post, loves!

Hi all! 

How was your day getting back to work? I hope it is as exciting as it is for me. 

Top by shopatvelvet, Jeans by Pomelo, Sandal by Charles & Keith, Hat by topinara

I don't know about you, but getting back to work after a long holiday is tiring yet exciting. So to boost my mood up, here's my idea of playing dress-up to get back to work after a long holiday. 

I wear my comfy long sleeveless top from shopatvelvet & pair it with my favorite mom jeans from Pomelo. Because it is a lazy-working-day, I wear my croco-leather sandals from Charles & Keith (these are currently my favorite pair!). And I also wear my hat from topinara because I still want to feel the summer holiday vibe even holiday is over and I should get back to work. 

Because my office is a very casual work environment, I get to wear anything I like as long as it is proper. So there goes my idea of office attire after long holiday. How about you? Let me know in comment box below! 

See you in my next post, loves!

Hello, Happy Eid Mubarak!

I wish you had a warm & blessed Eid surrounded with your beloved family and friends. And I hope for peace & joyful to be with all of you this year.

This year, it is a bit different for me. Since I'll be getting married in 2 months.. this year counted as my last year spending Eid as a single lady, as a child, as an individual in my house, and the whole long holiday is only to be with my family. Next Eid will be different, since I'll be separating time to spend Eid in my family's house & in his family's house. When I put it that way, it's a bit sad.. 

But hey, look at the bright side. I told myself that it will be just fine. It will be exciting, indeed. There will be more people to share the Eid with. The house will be warmer. The love will be bigger. Additional member in my house, and additional member in his house. I will have new tradition for Eid, and the thought of it just makes me super excited. Next year, I will still be a child to my parents, I will still be a member to my house, but to add into it, I will have new family to spend the Eid with. All is good. When I see it that way, it's very exciting!

So for all of you ladies who's getting married this year. Trust me that it will all be a new exciting life ahead, don't be afraid, don't worry. If you got the right man beside you, all is fine. 

'Till I see you in my next post, loves!
