Debenhams: Blogger Styling Competition // Michelle Koesnadi

Michelle.. Where do I have to begin with Michelle Koesnadi? Michelle is not really a mere "blogger friend" of mine. She became one of my good friends and a person that I could talk and gossip with. Kekeke.. Anyway, Michelle first started blogging back in August 2009. She decided to blog when she came accross several Indonesian fashion blogs that she can relate to. Thank God Michelle decided to blog right?

How unflattering my blog title, really? I seriously have no strength left. I've been sleeping so late lately, I've been working non-stop (okay.. I'm exaggerating) Well of course I stop working, but I do need to take some of my works, but it's okay :D I'm having fun doing it! I just miss my time watching my favorite tv shows, spazzing all over TOP's new CK's pictures for 1st Look magazine. OMG. Can't. Breathe.

Anyway, I think this week is the fastest week ever! Tomorrow.. is already Friday. Again! How fast is that? I couldn't believe that we're actually going to face weekend again, which is good, really. I've been so into monochrome shades lately. I like to wear colors in one shade. I think it's very... interesting. Although.. I think you're gonna faint when you see my outfit at work on Wednesday. I wore tangerine top, pink pants.. My outfit matched with my work station! I don't know since when I've became this pinky girl.. I used to hate pink... 

By the way, DO NOT FORGET to join Debenhams Indonesia Photo Competition! All you need to do is to come to Senayan City, take a picture inside the WINDOW DISPLAY on level 1 (with the provided accessories), upload the pic to twitter and add "I joined @DebenhamsIND & @pakaiapa Photo Competition" Easy right? And you might get Rp 2,000,000 voucher from Debenhams!

Debenhams: Blogger Styling Competition // Diana Rikasari

Diana Rikasari, the girl behind the famous blog Hot Chocolate & Mint, made her first blog post back in March 2007. Her style that I would describe as quirky and colorful as we saw on her blog, her colorful pictures really came to life when I met her at Debenhams Senayan City last week. She started blogging back then because she likes to write, take pictures, and dress up (we, girls obviously like that too, don’t we?) and she felt that a blog could accommodate all of those things.

No Other

Just got home after another fun day at work. One of the things that I miss by being unemployed is definitely my time of fan-girling. I miss watching non-stop videos of my favorite oppas. Speaking of oppas.. Remember how I used to be all GD&TOP, Bigbang, very YG biased? Well.. Time has changed, and the virus has spread. I admit it, I'm loving all these Sorry Sorry Bonamana and Mr Simple. It all started when I was watching 2NE1 on Inkigayo and SuJu had their comeback and they were promoting Mr Simple, then I met my friend who resembles Siwon (like a lot) and everytime I see Siwon, it reminds me of him. Then one day I heard Sorry Sorry was played at ZARA, and the rest is history. I can't stop listening to Sorry Sorry and Bonamana. My friend Justine showed me Super Girl, Arkasha told me to watch No Other. All these SuJu make me go michinom!! Well.. KPOP is KPOP. You just can't stop listening to them. First you just hate all of these groups other than your bias, and then you just love them endlessly. It just a matter of time.

Seriously, I just love their dance routine on Bonamana and Sorry Sorry. I love and can't stop smiling when I watch No Other videos, HOW CUTE!! Kyopta!! I think it's only a matter of time until I love 2PM. I watched I'll Be Back video yesterday and I admit it's quite catchy, but still... Ahh.. I don't know.. They're too muscular. My bias on SuJu.. would be, RyeoWook. I love Siwon too, but I like KyuHun too EunHyuk.. and HeeChul.. But DongHae is cute too hahaha.. I still have no idea about their names.. But I just hope I can watch SMTOWN live someday :D But do not worry VIP, BIGBANG IS STILL NUMERO UNO!!!!

Eternally Grateful

Hello everyone! I'm in the state of my life right now where everything is so perfect. I have great friends, great work, great family, great community, great place to live in.. (but not so great wallet condition. I'm super broke!) I've never felt this lucky in my life. I believe everything will be okay, I believe God will never give you problems that you can't deal, I believe He always give you strengths that you need. Lots of things in the past week that really surprised me. I had a lot of work to do, but I seriously love my job, even though I need to restrain myself for shopping, maybe that's another thing I need to conquer, my impulsive buying disorder. LOL.

Anyway, I really thank God sincerely, from the bottom of my heart, even though I've been through shits in the past years, I'm really grateful for where I am right now. I know life is a circle or a wheel that will always rolling, but I believe what I'm feeling right now won't go anywhere.. I kinda feel that this is God's gift to me for the things that I've been through in the past. I won't think about the past anymore, I will focus on my future, and embracing all the good things in life right now! Let's start our day with a smile, that way you won't be negative all day long. Don't worry, God will make a way. Remember, timing is everything. Good things will come in the perfect time.

Knit Me Up

I cannot stand today's heat. I cannot. This post was written on Sunday 16 October, I don't know exactly when this post is going to published, but seriously I cannot stand today's heat. I know very well that I'm not the type of person who complains about heat, sweats, being tanned, or anything similar, but I have to complain about today. The minute I stepped out from the car, I can feel my sweats are ready to come out from my skin. Anyway, this top is the one I told about, this is the top that Nina Nikicio wore on her show, and I bought it at The Goods Dept afterward. I really love this top, can you see that it is not a snake print shirt? It is a knit print shirt! How cool is that? So many exciting things happening to me right now, can't tell you what they are.. But seriously! Count your blessings, and be thankful for everything! Don't complain. Work hard. Keep smiling :)

PS: I changed my banner, sidebar, and added pages. What do you think?

The Sparkling Diamond

Do you know that diamonds are a girls' best friend? I totally agree with that. Why? Because these rocks stay on forever. Boys come and go, these rocks, they stay for life. Geez, I sound like a material girl! But if you've watched Moulin Rouge, you know the song "The Sparkling Diamond" that Nicole Kidman sang in that movie right? I love how lyrically lavish that song is. I do tend to agree though to the song, how love doesn't pay the rent, but diamond does :D

Anyway, if you've read Michelle's blog about her new diamond  studs earring, you must check Diamond Jewelry products. Have you watched Mean Girls? That movie, about three girls called "The Plastic". The Queen Bee, Regina George played by Rachel McAdams (the same girl who played The Notebook) didn't give Gretchen (one of her sidekicks) the chance to wear her favorite hoop earrings. Do you remember that scene? It was hilarious! Well, Anjolee gives you the chance to choose for yourself a wide range of diamond hoop earrings. You can basically choose for over 70 earrings models. That's a lot of models, isn't it?

Hoop earrings aren't really my thing, because I have big ears, so I prefer more like studs. Because I think it's more classic and fits any face shape. Because diamonds last forever right? You don't want to pass it on to your daughter/grand daughter but they can't wear it, because it doesn't fit them well right? 

They also give a lot of designs for the stud earrings. The great thing about Anjolee is that, they give you the  opportunity to buy the exact jewelry that you want. How many carats that you like, what kind of plate, is it white gold, yellow gold, or even platinum? They also give you amazing varieties of their designs, but also give you the chance to you to make it as you like. Not to worry about fake diamonds, because they have their own certificate ;D What are you waiting for? Grab one of Anjolee's diamond earrings for you now!!

EVENT// NIKICIO: Mixté Spring Summer 2012

My heart almost skipped a beat when I received Nina's message on facebook. It wasn't the first time she ask me to come to her show, I couldn't make it last time, but there's NO way I would skip her show. So there, on Saturday morning (I was quite shocked when she told me that her show is going to be on Saturday morning) at The Goods Dept.

I was this close to miss the show, thank God I got there on time. When I stepped into the venue, I saw Hafiz and he went straight to me and showed me my seat. Guess what? I'm seating front row! Awesome (sorry, I'm so excited). I got the best seat ever, thank you NIKICIO team ;D Anyway, the show started with a really catchy slow tune. I really love the show playlist. I was already stunned when I saw the first look. From what I know, NIKICIO rarely put fluorescent color into its color palette. And what did I saw on the show? More colorful clothes or accessories I might say?

Anyway, one of the pieces that I like is the high slit silk pattern skirt, but unfortunately the piece is not available yet, instead I bought the pattern silk shirt that Nina wore that day (also I bought the brown bag). I found the hair and make up really good. I was in awe all the time when models are coming out from the backstage. I really love the styling and I think each clothes are really special. I was surprised when I found out the the pattern that NIKICIO used in this collection is not ANIMAL PRINT, I thought it was a snake skin print, APPARENTLY, it's a grey sweater print. Anyway, thank you Nina for inviting me, and congratulations for the amazing collection :D Watch the show below.... down...

Red Hot Chili Pepper

Writing this post in the middle of work, on Saturday. Not to complain or anything, but I love my job, all the things that I do at work are all the things that I basically do in daily life. I would grasp on to this job and learn everything that I could learn from my colleagues and bosses. Anyway, I can't stop thinking about this dress since the first time I saw it. I'm really glad that I bought it. I just want to say that I'm really grateful and feel really blessed about where I am right now. I have a great job, great circle of friends, great colleagues, lovely parents, siblings who love me, a friend who always supports me doing this blog. I can't complain about anything. I'm just gonna enjoy my life right now. Just have fun! Don't think too much. Be thankful for everything that has happened to you. Don't forget to smile :)

EVENT// Hermès: Paris Mon Ami

First of all, I want to say a big THANK YOU to Michelle who has invited me and my friends to the event. Please invite me to another event ya, Chel! Hahaha :P Anyway, Michelle was kindly enough to invite me because she was one of the host for the event. Let me tell you, she looked so gorgeous and very pretty! I really love it when she smiles. The event was held at Pacific Place, it was an outdoor event but thank God the weather was nice so we didn't get sweaty! Around 4pm the event started and people started coming. I saw a lot of Hermès bags from Kelly to Nelly LOL. The place was decorated a wee bit "moroccan-ish". A block of orange block in the middle of the area, and big size bangles with bold color pillows decorated the stage. The area was surrounded with drink, games, and food booths.

There were games, food, drinks, photo booth.. It was so much fun! I was really happy to get the chance to come to this kind of event. Of course the photos would be all orange-y and pink-y, it's Hermès! Also, at the photo booth I got the chance to wear the Hermès scarf, I chose it to wear it as a turban. I think it looked cute ;P Anyway, it was a really fun event and I would like to come again if I got invited, again. Enjoy the pictures!

You Make Me Feel

Today is the first day that I feel that I have so much work to do which is good, you know. But, I'm really in a hurry right now, I'm trying to do several things at once, too bad I'm not that great at multitasking. All I can do right now is just to do the best that I can do! Anyway, I've been very attracted to this kind of shorts right now. This short looks like skirt, but it's short. In my opinion, it looks very cute and interesting. I'm not a big fan at online shopping in Indonesia, because I know how some clothes are very photogenic, but I was surprised when I got this short from Auburn and Ginger. The price is very reasonably cheap but the all the stitching, cuts, and even the fabric is really good. I'm super satisfied :)

Denim on Denim

Yes! Finally an outfit post! But I don't really like these pictures, I look so... tired? Can you tell? I didn't wear any make up. I took these pictures early in the morning, so the lighting didn't come out nicely :( Anyway, I've been seeing a lot of denim on denim outfit lately, so I decided to snatch my mom's top and mix it with my denim. I think it came out nice; but I didn't feel good with the shoes. I think I need another pair of shoes? Hahahaha..  Ah what do you think? I love this hat very much.. I realized that I have a thing for hat. I always love to buy hats, but I don't know how to wear it in Jakarta. Have a great week ahead everyone!

October 6, 2011


Annyeong haseyo yeoreobun! How are you guys? I'm really sorry for the lack of posts, I'm really trying to give you new outfit post, but I just can't. I'm working from 9 to 5, and there's no way I could take pictures during lunchtime. So I'll just update you with some pictures that I took few weeks ago. I hope you guys had a great time this week. Tomorrow is Friday, can you believe it?

Anyway, I must say, RIP Steve Jobs. I'm deeply saddened by this loss. I think he's still quite 'young' and I really hope he's still here with us. I'm eternally grateful by the things that he has offered to us. My first Apple product wasn't iPod. My first Apple product was the White Macbook 13" that still has that glossy look. I bought it on 2008 Chinese New Year. It was February 13th.

I've never used a Mac before that, but I must say that I was really satisfied when I tried it. It was so user friendly, simple, clean look, and the best thing? NO VIRUS. I would definitely recommend anyone who are slow with technology and gadget thingy, to use Apple products. I will never ever go back to Windows again (sadly I'm using Windows at work). Anyway, After 3 and a half years relationship with my white macbook that I use and bring everywhere I go, being the Apple trio with my girls at uni, I finally change or I must say upgrade my macbook to an iMac. I've been longing for an iMac for a really long time. I'm really satisfied right now. Other than iMac & Macbook, I also use iPod and iPhone 3GS. I must say until now iPhone is still the best phone that I've used in my life. So much better than Blackberry. If not for my friends, I won't buy a BB. Anyways, thank you Uncle Steve to make my life better. You'll be missed.

PS: I'm buying the new iPhone4S ~ iPhone 4 Steve.

Frida Gustavsson in JPG for Stil Magazine

Frida Gustavsson is one of my favorite models. I think her face is really unique and extremely pretty. She's really smart too and she's still so young! I really hope to see her to be very successful! Anyway, I really love these editorial of hers. There are other pictures, but these are my favorites. I really love how the dress fabrics being really flowy and all graceful.

A Big Bang Experience

As you guys know.. I watched GD&TOP and SeungRi performing live at the Formula 1 Grand Prix at Singapore 2 weeks ago. It has been a dream for me to watch BIGBANG live (especially GD&TOP, because they're my favorite oppas!). Anyway I didn't think for a second whether I should buy the ticket or not, I just buy it straight away. Well, let me tell you something.. I went to Singapore alone, I know.. So much dedication just for these oppas, but hey don't judge me I bet you'll do the same thing if you love them. It's not embarrassing for me to say that I went alone, well I love travelling alone, sometimes it's a lot better to go alone rather than going with someone else. Anyway, that week was my last week to have that kind of freedom, as you all know right now.. I'm working on weekdays.

October 2, 2011

Sorry Sorry

I'm really sorry for the lack of posts. I've been so busy at work, I came home late, then I went to sleep straight away. I need to get up at 6am on weekdays, I'm still adjusting right now with my new schedule. Anyway, this is one of the pics that I took when I was in Singapore 2 weeks ago. Since then, a lot of great things happened to me, even though lately I've been feeling so... weird and hormonal. But after set things aside, I decided that I should listen to my best friends. I need to relax and the most important thing is just to enjoy the moment right now. Don't you think so? Rather than rushing things and get too emotional about everything, it's the best just to live at the moment and not think too much about what's going to happen later on hahaha. Live life to the fullest!
