Summer Getaway in Tanjung Putus

As I said on the previous post, I spent my Eid al-Fitr holiday last July in Tanjung Putus Island, Lampung with my family. We went there almost every year since I was a kid and truth be told, the island never made me feel bored after all this time. Call me an island girl, because I'm a sucker for beautiful quiet beach and this one in Tanjung Putus is definitely on top of my list.

Moreover, Tanjung Putus also has a very wonderful underwater life to be explored. I can go snorkeling anytime, no limit, as often as I want. Also I can canoeing around the villa too to enjoy the scenery where mountains and sea collide. For you who would like to have a calming and lazy holiday, I personally recommend Tanjung Putus Island for you. Here you can enjoy your free high quality time away from the city crowd with your loved ones.

Oh, no need to worry about the food during your stay in Tanjung Putus Island. Even it's located far from the city, the villa where I stayed will give their guest the privilege to taste the seafood fresh from the ocean. You can even go mussel hunting or squid fishing in front of the villa in the afternoon until late evening. The mussel and squid will then be cooked by the chef in charge. Don't think the chef in this villa will be looked like the chef in a five star hotel, because it's definitely not the same. The chef is also the contact person if you have any further inquiries regarding your stay in Tanjung Putus Island.

Contact Person:
 Ms. Lily
Kindly watch the video diary I took during my 3 days 2 nights trip. You can get a glimpse of how life's going in Tanjung Putus as well as the delicious food and short footage of the underwater life. Prepare to drool over the coral reef, yes, the coral reef (besides the food, of course). ↓↓

Lavender Love

Spent my summer holiday last month on Tanjung Putus Island, Lampung. It's an island of my childhood and I will never ever get bored of having a short escape there. The beach is not oh-so-fantastic actually, but the coral reef is. If you ever want to have a calm summer holiday, try Tanjung Putus because it's located from the hustle of the city. Besides you can go snorkeling or canoeing err-day and err-time (if you want to). I personally never want to miss the snorkeling part. Will tell you more about my trip on the next post and it's coming real soon (I promise)!

PS: took all of the photos only using my phone, hence I'm sorry for the low quality.

Anyway, how do you usually spend your summer holiday? I am a beach kinda girl and would never say no to beach. Are you with me? Kindly let me know on the comment below :)

Flower in the Dark

Forever 21 Top | Uniqlo Skirt | La Dulce Necklace and Stocking | Selkius Maxwel Shoes | Unbranded Clutch

The title of this post kinda inspired by my skirt that makes me think, "it's amazing that flowers can look extremely beautiful even in the dark." Somehow I also think that we should be like flowers who look beautiful even we are going through hard times in our lives. Be beautiful in your own way. No need to compete with others. Because just like flowers, they are all beautiful no matter what type of flower you see. And people always have preferences over their favorite flowers. So, keep blooming beautifully and let them in awe.

Oh, it's a throwback post anyway. It was what I wore to Indonesia Fashion Week 2014. I think it will be wasted if I don't post the picture on my blog ;)

Have a nice weekend,

Throwback to IFW 2014: APPMI New Member Fashion Parade

I know I'm such a lazy blogger and I lose count already how many times I abandon this blog or shall I call it my virtual diary. 
Still, I want to thank all of you who still bear with me and want to waste your precious time reading my blog. I have several questions from anonymous on my asking me when will I post a new article on my blog. Really, really, thank you for your support!

Here I present to you a report from Indonesia Fashion Week 2014 day 3 (Feb 22nd, 2014)! It's been a year I know. So, let's have a throwback since I didn't come to Indonesia Fashion Week 2015 because of my thesis journey :")

I got the chance to watch Zooming Preview: APPMI New Member Fashion Parade (Part Two) and watch various collection from amazing designers. APPMI (Asosiasi Perancang Pengusaha Mode Indonesia) is an association which where Indonesia's designers and fashion entrepreneurs gathered. Every year they choose young designers as the successor of the association and continue to contribute their talent as an effort to make Indonesia be the capital city of fashion.


Mariana Mariawan's collection truly represents the color of the earth, ranging from brown, red brick, nude, and broken white which are easy to combined with other colors.

Riani's collection show the art of color blocking in a unique way. Totally bring a fun and colorful atmosphere during the show!


What is not loving Inez Kantahuri's collection? The combination of modern design and traditional print are really impressive!


Aam Laurisha knows perfectly how to make a piece of elegant clothing for Muslim women. I believe you can't agree more with me, right?


Djuanita Seno Aji gives a modern touch to the ethnic patterned clothes. Personally, I love the gold and black dress so much!


Painting can be made into dress? Too cool to be true! Yogiswara Prajanti made it real with "Lukisan Semesta" collection.

The collection really show us how Yunita Puji Agustiani realizing her passion into fashion. From pastel outfit to elegant outfit, this collection will complement your day-to-night look.


 Korina Budiman's collection juggling the show into a playground! Pastel color's outfit really reminds me of lollypop. 


Anton L. Sunardi's collection dominated by elegant colors which is perfect for semi-formal to formal event.


Eleonora Shindy takes white color to another level! Who would have thought white dress can be really seducing?


Nelly Gunawan's collection showed the beauty of floral print. Somehow this collection reminds me of Chinese traditional clothes, Qi Pao (Cheongsam), which also often using floral print.


Restu Anggraini's collection showing us the art of mix and match three-tone colors outfit. The results are awesome, in my opinion. Before this show, I never believe that yellow and black are meant for each other.


Retty Selya's collection are mostly in black and white color which combined with several patterns. 
Love the simple and sleek cutting of this collection. The color represents the earth which combined into two-tone or three-tone pieces of clothing. Perfect for your tea time or coffee time with friends!


Here are my favorites from Khanaan Luqman Shamlan's collection. The earthy tone made the outfit look so feminine and elegant, which I think are perfect for formal event.


Alice Salindra knows best when it comes to make a gown which is playful and sexy at the same time. Definitely loving the wavy detail of the gown!


My favorite piece from Nisa Tesani must be the outerwear worn by model on the right. It looks like a cape at the same time which match the white pants and shirt inside perfectly!


Oh, how I love modern kebaya! Kebaya is one of the famous traditional clothes from Indonesia. The modern version presented by Nasaruddin is awesome in my opinion. The details of the lace are so lovely and my favorite one are the right one which looks like a one-shoulder type of kebaya. 


Euis Rohaini's collection also play a lot with traditional patterns which made into beautiful modern clothes. Again, the one on the right catch my heart at the first sight. Somehow, it looks like an Indonesian version of red riding hood outfit.


Gotta love the sleek and simple yet graceful design of Vivian Huberta's collection. The outwear worn by model on the right are amazing! 


Modern Moslem's wear by Dwi Adi Kusuma with color blocking theme are incredible with the touch of traditional patterns from tenun fabric.


The last collection was from one of the most well-known Indonesia's fashion designer named Ivan Gunawan. The intricate details of this collection really amazed me. Using gold color, Ivan Gunawan took elegant to another whole new level. I can say nothing but love.

Tell me which one is your favorite? Oh, and if you guys visited Indonesia Fashion Week 2015, kindly do share your experience with me in the comment section below :) I'd really love to hear your story because as I said earlier, I am busy with college thingy.
So, till the next post (hopefully, soon)!

See ya,

Daily Make Up Essential

Have you ever really eager to dress up but feel very lazy to put any make up on?
Well, I feel you :")

Make up always been girls' best friend but sometimes I feel not in the mood to wear make up, even when I'm traveling out of town. Ever since then, I always bring my sunnies to cover up half of my face! Very useful to hide your eyes with no make up on. No doubt for it, right? And the best part of it is you'll still look presentable and stylish as well. Say YEAY for the win-win solution!

But, then.. you know you can't wear sunnies everyday and everywhere you go right? That's why I also wear make up for my daily activities at college or to hang out with friend around the town. I always choose for natural-and-friendly-themed make up to accompany me everyday. I never wear eye shadow and not really into it except when I go to a party or anything formal. 

Another confession from me about make up: Shopping for make up at the mall can take a lot of time! Do you agree with me? 

If yes, than I have a solution for you! Just discover that Zalora Indonesia have a huge collection of make up to complete your collection! It's on the beauty section!
I can now feel relieved when my make up is running out because I can purchase it from Zalora anywhere at anytime. You should try to head over to Zalora Indonesia or simply click here to browse all of their make up collection with many popular brand!

Here are my daily make up essential that I wear almost everyday and thank God, I can find them on Zalora Indonesia!

Hope my daily make up essential suit you well and is it okay if I give you bonus? Yes? Okay, then here are selfie(s) of me wearing my make up :)

Have a nice day! XOXO
