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!

June means; half year has passed, and another half is yet to go. So... I think it's the right time to look back and see how my 2018 resolutions going so far. Let's see them and check one by one:

1. Drink tons of water
I can proudly say that this one is so far achieved! I usually drink 1 big bottle of mineral water per day, so its around 1.5 L + more drinks when I go out with my friends (sometimes iced tea or coffee, but I'm trying to use less sugar for this casual drinks.)

2. Limit snacks & sweets
After 6 months, I think that this one is also achieved. I eat less snacks & sweets per day (I tried not to order food in Go-Jek that much now). But still, I eat snacks around 1-2 times per week. 

3. Try to eat more fruits
Unfortunately, it is still so hard for me to eat more fruits. I am more a vegetable person, I can eat like a big portion of vegetables, but I can only eat few pieces of fruits per day. So friends, please help me with suggestions how to force myself to eat more fruits! 

4. Finish the meal smarter
Yup this one is achieved, too! I usually spare a half of my rice portion, but I finish the protein & the vegetables, and also get some milk or vitamin drinks to support my meal.

5. Exercise regularly
Sadly this one is not really 100% achieved. Turns out that it is hard to force myself do some exercise at home, compared to when I had to go to classes that I already paid for. So I'm thinking to register myself again in some studios to get my zumba class & yoga class. Wish me luck! 

And you, how is your 2018 resolutions going so far? I hope all is well and your goals can be reached by the end of the year. So.. see you on my next post, loves!

Hello!

May just went so so fast and its finally June. And as always, end of month is a calling for; favorites! So here goes my May favorites, let's jump right in:


FASHION
Not so much in my fashion favorite this month, but I've been wearing this item all the time; my vintage grandma-bag I got from Gaudi. If you know me, I am all about basic, classic, timeless, with a little bit of vintage touch. So this bag is a perfect addition to my wardrobe.


BEAUTY
This month, my main skin problem is acne. (due to lack of sleep, unhealthy eating, and too much caffeine.) There are two products that really works on my skin to help reduce acne & redness. The first one is the famous Tea Tree Oil from The Body Shop. I know you must've heard, this product works like magic! After that, I always use some sunscreen when I go out, because if you haven't know, acne spot can be darker if you don't use any sunscreen! I always use sunscreen from Laneige, it is travel size so I can just bring it in my bag anywhere. 

MUSIC
- Champagne Supernova by Oasis
- I Just Wanna Go Back by Honne
- Recalling by Atlesta (this one is a total hidden gem you should listen!)
Do give it a listen, and for it to be easier, you can listen my Spotify playlist here.

OTHERS
I'm currently starting to read again (after a long-paused due), and my current read is "Men Without Women" by Haruki Murakami. It gives you 7 stories of men without women and how the world turns out for them. Definitely a perfect book for a light reading.

There you go my May favorites, see you in my next post, loves!

Hello, 

As Ramadhan started, all of us have something to think about. Something to reflect, and something to learn. This year, I got so many things in my mind. Since these past few months have been like a roller-coaster, and next year everything will be different. So this is the perfect time for me to reflect & make time to think about everything I should learn. I might as well write it down for you. 
1. Be grateful
I know that I need to learn to be more grateful. At most times, I feel bad & angry about stuffs. But like wise man says, everyone is fighting their own battle. Everyone is doing the same. That makes me realize that I just have to be grateful, every single time. I just have to realize that I am blessed & I don't need to feel bad about anything. I still have to remind myself all the time to be grateful, but you know, I'm getting there.

2. Make distance with negativity
This is what I learn the most about interacting with other people. That there are so many people that doesn't do you any good. These kind of people just complains about everything, make you feel disrespected & make you feel bad. Believe me, honey, you don't need this kind of people. We have to realize that we don't have to listen to those kind of negativity. Not only in real life, but also in social media. We can slowly make some distance with every kind of negativity. 

3. Forgive yourself
This is the hardest part of self-love. We all have things that we regret, and we all have things we wish we didn't do. But like, that's how life goes. You do right, you learn something. You do wrong, you learn something too. That's the moment I realize that there's always silver lining of everything in life, and that makes me think that it's okay to forgive myself and it's important to move forward, with all the learning in hand. 

I hope this thoughts can help anyone who needs it. See you in my next post, loves!
