Looking through Memories & Resolutions

First of all, I want to say: HAPPY NEW YEARRR!!~
New year, means having new resolution and collecting some greatest/memorable moments in the previous year.

- Thinking back about the past (2013) what have I did? -

  • Self changes. Maybe some of you who already being friends with me, knew that I'm a nice, kind, and patient girl. However, looking back, I realized that I sometimes I act like children, act before thinking.. When I get upset, I did what I want to right at that time, eventhough it's not extreme. Right after I start my college, I tried to fix it, little by little.
  • Hobby. My parents started to acknowledge my skills at sewing. I notice that after I've made various outfit, they support me with what I love to do, cosplay and wear lolita. It's not that they doesn't allow me to do the hobby at first, but it's just making them realize cosplay and lolita are actually positive, not only something which is done for short term of fun.
  • Meet new friends & best friends. Through some Japanese events and new college I knew various great people and being friends with them.
  • Bangs. After about 10 years not having bangs at all (coz mom doesn't allow me), I decided to change my hairstyle by having straight bangs. lol.
  • Graduating from high school with good score.
  • Trying to lose some weight, but in the end I gain more weight compared to last new year OTL
  • Being thankful and happier in this new year - on many aspects.

For 2014, my resolutions are:
  1. Blogging more often. I realized sometimes I only have 2 post in a month, while sometimes I had 8. Therefore, I hope this year I could be informative and express my creativity through this blog by posting oftenly~ I also promise to have more quality pictures. Maybe you notice that there's some changes with my photos recently, right? Now I'm trying to edit all pictures as best as i could.
  2. Keep in touch with my best friends, cause I actually starting to lose friends right after graduation *sigh*
  3. Losing some weight. It's still on my wish list for this year, because I always feel insecure when I'm getting fat ;; Therefore I'll be more often in doing exercise, hopefully I could routinely do exercise 3-4 times in a week.
  4. Finish my college in mid 2014 and continue my university in Melbourne  :')
  5. Go to Japan with my own money. I'll try to search part time job at Melbourne and saving money for the trip. It's because I don't want to burden my parents and I think they could be proud when they know her daughter is independent.
  6. Having more wonderful memories and meet wonderful people.
  7. Care more with my skin. I usually very lazy to wash and clean my face at night, which I know it's really bad :/ Thank God that I don't have acnes.
  8. Create more wonderful outfit in terms of quality and quantity. This picture below, could summarize what I made during 2013. I hope one day i have a room which is full of my creations.

In short, I'm grateful for 2013 and I really hope 2014 will brought more smile to me :))

Have you did your resolutions? I really recommend it because it's important to know your goals and achievement~ :3

Fashion Photography: Sweet Dessert

Few days ago, I had a chance to become a photographer (once again) and took some photos of a friend who loves lolita fashion. Both of us are not professional in modeling or photography. We just do our best in this photoshoot :)
Anyway, the dress and accessories are made by me.


As tea time already came, a girl who loves teddy bear confuse to pick a cake. All of the cake looks delicious~ 

After thinking several moments, she finally choose this cake. 
A combination of chocolate soft roll cake with matcha ice cream.

The taste is so heavenly soft, the chocolate feels melt in her mouth.
and the ice cream.. is a perfect combination with the cake. 
It's really delicious and not too sweet so she could finish this 1 plate for herself..

Her favorite tea is camomile, tea is the best compliment while eating a cake. It will neutralize the sweetness with its flowery scent..

She's really happy to visit this cafe, the interior, atmosphere, and food & drinks are so pretty with a touch of sweet and classic.


Special thanks to Rati Rati :)

Flowers in Friendship

Friends are always come and go. However, it doesn't mean that you can just let them go and erase the memories you've went through..
For me, friends is one of the important thing in my life. They help me to improve 'inside' and 'outside'.

That girl, is one of my lolita best friend. Currently she went abroad to Japan for taking fashion college. We share the same love and passion in fashion <3
In the past, I thought that it's hard to have friend which share the same hobby and have interest in same field. However, I realized it's not totally true.
I met her from 'cosplay world'. Actually I just started to talk with her this year, but time fly too fast- In those months, we talk about lolita, sewing, and design. All of them created pieces of puzzle which finally build a portrait.

Actually, I also have some best friends in high school. People's saying about high school memories are actually very true. Eventhough there are bunch of homeworks and test, but the memories are unforgetable. 

Thinking about the past, 
I'm glad to chose that school.. 
I'm glad to have that teachers and classmates..
I'm glad to study that subjects..
and I'm glad to endure all hard and good times together with my friend..

Friendships are like flowers, which they need water to keep it alive.
Similarly like best-friend relationship. They need to keep in touch and communicate each other to keep the friendship.
All I need to say, be happy if you have best friends in your life and don't ever lose them.


headpiece - handmade by me
Necklace - diva
knit cardigan - no brand (bought in Hongkong)
dress - Sole Mio
shoes - no brand (bought in Melbourne)

The best food as a remedy & beauty related

Hello guys,
today I want to introduce a food that works like a magic to me..
Maybe some of you already know, but some others don't. Therefore, I decide to write this post :)

The food that I meant is Lemon.

Here's some of the best funtion of lemon in my daily life:
(excluding part of washing dishes XD)

1. Part of food Ingredients
Mostly people will use lemon as dressing or as a part to cook something, such as Lemon fish, lemon pie, etc etc.. By using lemon, it will made the food taste more fresh.

2. Remedy for Sore Throat
It's one of the best part of lemon! I could easily got sore throat, that's why I always drink so much water in a day. If you knows me, one items that I couldn't bring aside of wallet and handphone is my water bottle. LOL.
Usually I will squeeze the lemon and add a little bit honey into it, without adding water. 
*you can just drink the lemon without adding honey if you want, I do it because I can't stand the sourness of lemon*
Of course, it taste super sour. However after drink it....Trust me, it is a big help to cure sore throat. (It took me around 3 times of drinking lemon till finally I healed from the sore throat)

3. Diet meals
Many Dietician suggest that people who wants to start their diet, they could eat lemon or water lemon to be success in their diet. It is used because lemon could help human's immune system stay strong, eventhough they didn't eat too many food in a day. In short, consuming lemon will prevent you to become exhausted.

4. Biggest contributor for Vitamin C
I guess most of you already know the benefit of vitamin C.. Lemon is an excelent sources to get vitamin C and also the greatest contributor for antioxidant.

5. Mask
Using mask could help you to gain smooth and glowing skin. You can use honey & lemon as a daily mask routine. How to make it? Check this link

Do you also love lemon like I do? :D

Oh anyway, the giveaway will close today in 12 pm at Indonesian time, which means 3 hours left to join..
See ya on my next post~

[Dr. Jart+] V7 BB Cream

This post has been postponed for a long long time due to my activities as a new university student TT__TT
However, yes I miss blogging. To do review, taking pictures, writing about my thought, etc..
Therefore, I'm happy cause finally I could write again in this blog <3

Anyway, I got a BB cream from attending Dr. Jart+ event, named V7 Beauty Balm..

What they claim?
- A multifunctional, antiaging, protecting, and perfecting BB cream with Flexitone technology to provide flawless, natural-looking coverage 
- Features SPF 30 sun protection 

About my thought:

> Packaging
I really love the design. Recently, I adore the simple design but looks classy. Honestly, to me it's hard to achieve. I still prefer making detailed design~
It maybe looks the same with other packaging in terms of BB cream. However, plastic is chosen as the base (which make it light) and the shape is tube (which won't take much place in your makeup case).

> Formula
Light. A good sign for 'worth to buy' products is that you didn't feel heavy when wearing the makeup. and it's happen with this BB cream.
Moreover, it's neither sticky nor watery, which make it easy to apply the BB cream.

> Scent
I don't know what kind of scent it is, but I love the scent. It doesn't smell like cosmetic, which I really hate. If I could describe the scent in 1 word, that would be 'fresh'

> Coverage
It's good! The coverage is medium-high. Perfect for daily wear.
However, if you search for a high coverage type, I think it's better to use foundation (because mostly BB cream only offer medium-high coverage). Other than that, it has whitening effect (temporary), which could made my face more brighter without being freaky.

> Staying Power
The coverage effect could last up to 12 hours (used indoor). However, for normal activities (I like to move around, so it will made me sweaty) it will last around 8 hours. Not bad huh? X3

(After using the BB cream, my face becomes glowing and brighter. Of course it helps a lot in making flawless face)
Anyway, my dark circle aren't really bad that time and I don't have many acnes. Therefore this BB cream is good enough to cover my face. I think if you have many acnes you also need a Great concealer to create flawless face..

+ Nice packaging
+ easy to carry (not heavy)
+ Good staying power
+ Medium-high coverage
+ Light (formula)
+ Nice scent

- Rather hard to make the bb cream comes out (required to push harder)
- Only 1 size available, not suitable for dark skin.

Rating? 9/10

*Personally, I love this product, because of its effect and luckily it fits my skin color.

Alright, last selca~ lol.
Actually this photo wasn't focus, but my expression kinda funny. lol XD

See you in my next post :)
