BLP Caramel Champagne

"Be sweet like Caramel and bubbly like Champagne"

The description really suits for new shade from BLP, Caramel Champagne. In case you haven't heard about this brand, it's local product, created by one of my favorite make up artist, Lizzie Parra. Yes, BLP is By Lizzie Parra. Actually this is not my first BLP, but the first time to review in here. Before this shade is coming, they already have 8 wearable shades. Caramel Champagne comes to celebrate holiday season.

Lingkaran Ibu: Self Love Talk (vol. 1)

Being a mother is the greatest gift I ever had from God. Happy, excited, yet challenging and exhausted at the same times. Sometimes, this new role makes us forget to give self love to ourselves. I think we're too busy with the baby, household stuff, and other hectic motherhood life.

Brunch Soiree: NUXExAlodita

Ok, before November comes to an end, I'd love to share this to all of you. ;)

It's been a year attending an event with my favorite influencer as a guest or host, Andra Alodita. Last month I've got a message from her, Malo told me that she'll become the host an event and invited me. Whoaaa.. surprise and so happy! But still waiting for the exact date. No problem. 
But at the same time, I'm still hesitate to go out, attending an event with the baby (because we don't have nanny or mbak, so I always bring my baby whenever I go, hehehe). Then I asked her whether it's ok or not if I bring the baby. She said ok. Aww... thank you! :D

Prenatal Yoga

Haiii, oh, it's September already! I realize that during last 2 months I didn't share anything in here. Well, after giving birth last July, I was busy with the baby, trying to adapt my new role, etc. So yea, late post on everything. Actually, I should post this on July (right before my delivery time), but I still want to share with you what's on during my last trimester on pregnancy. Here we go...

Little bit flashback to June, it was my first Ramadhan in pregnant condition. At first, I'm not really sure that I can fasting as usual or like other people, since I have the baby inside. I always feel hungry and thirsty all the time (yes, I drink a lot of mineral water in a day). But, at the end, after consult with my obgyn (on the third day of Ramadhan, he said it's ok if I continue my fasting. Even he really support me to do fasting, since the baby growing so fast and bigger than his prediction (ooops!). Alhamdulillah, Allah gave me a chance to join fasting for the whole month, I felt so grateful and the baby was cooperative (thank you dear :*).

So, what did I do to keep my body healthy during Ramadhan and pregnant? Like I said, being pregnant doesn't mean can be lazy. I'm just trying to be active and still do some sports. Well, I'm not really sport person, but I keep doing this just for the sake of my health, and I think being pregnant doesn't mean can't do sport right? We just need to adjust the portion, of course depends on our pregnancy condition (remember, everyone is unique, don't push yourself to hard). I used to join regular yoga class in the office, and used to be runner before pregnant.

Tips: Memilih Yogurt

Selama masa kehamilan dan khususnya bulan Ramadhan ini aku berusaha untuk lebih memperhatikan asupan makanan dan nutrisi yang baik bagi diri sendiri dan bayiku. Sangat beruntung sampai trimester ketiga ini aku tidak mempunyai masalah dalam hal makanan yang harus dikonsumsi. Mulai dari berbagai macam karbohidrat, protein, sayuran, buah-buahan, hingga kebutuhan akan kalsium. Berbicara tentang kalsium, pada dasarnya aku adalah penggemar berat susu dan kawan-kawannya, salah satunya adalah yogurt. Kenapa yogurt? Karena produk susu yang terbuat dari fermentasi bakteri ini mempunyai banyak sekali manfaat bagi kesehatan kita, mendukung diet dan bahkan kecantikan.

Namun bagi sebagian orang, mereka tidak dapat mengkonsumsi yogurt atau bahkan tidak menyukainya karena rasanya yang asam. Rasa asam itu disebabkan oleh asam laktat yang dihasilkan oleh fermentasi gula susu. Disini aku ingin share manfaat dan beberapa tips memilih yogurt yang baik. Karena menurutku, saat ini sudah banyak sekali yogurt atau minuman yogurt yang rasanya tidak terlalu asam, diantaranya adalah Heavenly Blush tetrapack dan Cimory yogurt drink. Yuk, kita cari tahu lebih lanjut tentang minuman menyehatkan ini!

Review: ULTIMA II - Delicate Lipstick and Blush

When I was in college, I’m not the person who always to put make up on daily basis. Besides I’m not expert with it, I don’t have any budget on make up at that time, lip gloss and compact powder is more than enough. I ever felt that my skin is not good, and I can’t afford to take care my skin very well. But since working, it has been changed gradually. Around last year, I’m having addiction with skin care, and in love again with make-up. My skin type is normal to dry, that’s why I’m quite picky with make-up products. Have a dry skin sometimes is so annoying, but good thing is I never have a big problem with acne. Thanks God! Oh ya, my favorite make up item besides eyebrow and eyeliner, are lipstick and blush on. From matte to glossy, creamy, matte to shimmery/shine blush, because I’d love to try different kind of texture and type. I just feel that when you’re putting favorite lipstick and blush on, it can create fresh look instantly.

Benefit Traveling for Yourself & Family


This is the 4th day of Ramadhan, how's your fasting so far btw (for you who are fasting in this holy month)? Wish you have a blessed month ever and still can actively doing your daily activity. What about me? Of course trying not to be lazy and more active this month, hehehe

Before Ramadhan, I got an invitation to attend talk show with Halo Ibu last Sunday in Pondok Indah Mall II. Actually the major topic it's about Summer Travel, this session specifically talking about benefit traveling for yourself and family. How can traveling with family can improve your self love, tips & trick, do & don'ts traveling with your family. As usual, I always amaze to all parents who still can manage traveling with their family, especially with kids. Maybe the topic sounds too early for me, since the baby still on the way, but hopefully this sharing session can be useful for moms out there (and myself in the future).

REVIEW: Imperial Leather Facial Cleansing Wipes

Living in busy city like Jakarta, which is full with pollution, and I can say have no fresh air, can make our skin feel tired easily and create a problems. So that's why I'm trying not to forget clean my face from pollution, and make up after office or having other activities outside. But sometimes, we're too tired (or maybe lazy, sometimes) and don’t have enough time to clean our face when we arrive in the office (especially after using public transportation), travelling or before you go to bed. Last week, when I did a grocery, I found interesting product, Imperial Leather Facial Cleansing Wipes. Yes, at first, I thought that Imperial Leather only have a bar soap or body wash. Surprisingly their products range is getting wider, one of them is this facial cleansing wipes.

Secret of Happiness

Before May come to an end, I would like to share my experience during "Ayurvedic Lifestyle: The Timeless Secret for Modern Mom's Happiness" workshop. It's collaboration between Halo Ibu and Balance Life. The reason why I joined this workshop, simply because I'm curious how Ayurveda can affect your happiness. Also, I want to meet my friend behind Halo Ibu, Ashtra, and Zia Nichols from Balance Life, who really passionate about Ayurveda and healthy lifestyle. Oh ya, actually we're graduated from the same university, but we never meet each other again after graduation. Let's call this opportunity as a little reunion, plus at the same time, gave a clueless mom-to-be like me a bunch of inspiration and positivity.

My Pregnancy Savior (Part 1)

During this pregnancy, I feel like my skin getting dry, looks dull and acne in certain spot. Yes, I guess it'll be last until my pregnancy journey end, but I don't mind. Somehow, when laziness hit me, I left my skin condition as it is, but I realized that even during pregnancy, doesn't mean you cannot taking care of your skin health, right? I know there are some ingredients that must be avoided by pregnant woman, so it make me more picky to have or buy skin care during pregnancy. Here I want to share my savior during this special time, tadaaaaa~

Everyday Calligraphy

Me, a person who have a lot of interest, but at the same time I can be so moody. I love to learn new things to spend my time (besides quality time with the loved one of course). As you can read in here, last year I've joined calligraphy class with Chia and Mau Belajar Apa. Well, that's one of my wishlist, learn calligraphy. *mission accomplished* ;)

But the worst part since then is the mood really up and down. >.<" I know, that's not good, so start from this year I'm trying to keep practicing my super beginner calligraphy skill again and promise to myself, not to be lazy!

Two weeks ago, I found interesting thing on Chia's IG feed. She published her first calligraphy book. Wooohoooo~ congratulations for your book launching, Chia!
