Beauty Steal: EMRATA

There is undoubtedly a way to compare oneself to the bombshell, Emrata or Emily Ratajkowski. But this look seemed doable and summer appropriate. Personally I would absolutely don┬ábronzed eyes, contoured face and brown lips, with a high pony, gold hoops and a white top this summer. Now, all I need is her tan…

Voyages: Belitung

Processed with VSCO with p5 preset

Belitung or Belitong (say it like the locals do), is one of the thousand islands found in Indonesia, precisely off the east coast of Sumatra. According to Indonesia Tourism’s website, the word Belitung is taken from the local language, which means sea slug.┬áLaskar Pelangi, or The Rainbow Troops, is an Indonesian movie released in 2008 that happened to take place in East Belitung. You could say that this island became a checklist on several traveler’s list after they watched that movie. Although Belitung isn’t a household name like┬áBali, the beaches will captivate you.

NATURE.┬áS U N. S A L T Y H A I R. O C E A N. C O C O N U T. S E A F O O D. P A L M T R E E S.┬áAll made my first time in Belitung┬áoh so relaxing! Did I mention sun? It felt like the sun was so pure – no pollution overriding the sun rays whatsoever. Definitely worth for a quick getaway to get some sun, ocean and delicious food. I swear, you wouldn’t need social media. (fine, I sneaked a couple of boomerangs and snapshots just to share the beauty of this island)┬áEspecially remember about reality…

WATER. SUN. CURLS. WARM TONES.

Those 5 words are currently what I seek day to day. Water from the ocean or pool, sun on a clear sky, natural curls formed by double french braids and a color palette that’s not only black or white. The month of May has opened my eyes to once again embrace color and naturalness.

Ramadhan Kareem, lovelies!

Jumpsuits for Weddings – Yay or Nay?


Never have I ever worn a jumpsuit to a wedding – drinks a glass of wine!┬áYes, I opted for a jumpsuit as my wedding attire during my recent trips to Malaysia. The jumpsuit was my mother’s. Its neckline is pretty low but the lovely white accent drifting to my middle torso adds a sophisticated touch to this jumpsuit. Top it off with dangerously high Lewre heels, a fun-vintage clutch and my go to red lipstick by MAC in Russian Red – here goes my modern take on wedding attires!

Most Painful Ear Piercing, EVER

The lady who did my piercing gave dotted marks with a red marker on the spots that I requested. At this point, I was still questioning myself to proceed or not.

She smiled at me. “Looking cute is painful,” she said.

Holding back my tears from dropping onto my cheeks, I legit shouted at PIM 2’s third floor. “Fuuuuuuck!!!” my eyes were glossy.

Hopefully you can tell that it’s on a part of the ear bone, which is known to be a sensitive piercing area. So imagine how painful that felt. What was I even thinking???

Here’s a minor tip for a distraction to whoever might go through a painful piercing; go help your girlfriend shop afterwards. It worked well for me.

Moodboard.1

Tumblr is a great source to find inspiration and trigger my creativity (whenever it’s dead) on things I’m passionate about. BUT that doesn’t mean I wanna strictly look and become like the girls you’d see.. Last night I went on a Tumblr-mode after a relatively long hiatus. These six photos bring out my current mood where I wanna switch up my style, start journaling again with a more creative approach, then find ways to improve my┬ámakeup skills┬áand stop having an uptight facial expression in photos.┬áThe thing about inspiration, we tend to use it in an indirectly manner mixed with our individual approaches.
