Wild Flowers Glossary

Wild flowers equals to beauty and freedom. Celandine, Coltsfoot, Drummond Flox, Lupine, Sage, Toadflax, Winter Heliotrope, you name it. I love all the varying colors and forms they come in. Exhibit stunning colors and whimsical forms, flourish anywhere, survive through any obstacle, and even have wonderful uses, these reasons make wild flowers even more adorable than elegant bouquet flowers. I was wearing a Stradivarius jacket, New Look boots, and DIY dress which pattern is one of my favorites in my wardrobe.

Trip to Japan Part I

Konnichiwa! I'm back again after a couple weeks of nice adventure and discovery. This time I'd like to post about my experience as one of Marina Beauty Days Out Japan's five winners. In the competition, the contestants must post photo and short essay about inspiring way of life to share and expanding knowledge with Sahabat Marina.  Japan was a country I always dreamt about visiting. I couldn't thank more to Marina for the wonderful trip to Japan I've been wishing from such a long time, for free!
So here we go, the first day we stepped in the land of the rising sun, Japan. Firstly we went to Gotemba Premium Outlet and then Mount Fuji.

Although I was quite exhausted after a long flight from Jakarta-Singapore-Tokyo, I tried not to fall asleep on the bus in order to enjoy the beautiful scenery. Eyes wide open!

Finally we arrived at Kawaguchi Koryu Hotel, had a dinner, and trying onsen for the first time. Before going to sleep I managed some time to have a sip of green tea. Its caffeine doesn't avoid me from sleeping. I surely lived in a sweet dream that moment.

Play Plaid

I never feel insecure about how do I look when wearing plaid. It's timeless, versatile, and simple, but also gives touch of swag on anyone who wears plaid. When I'm not in the mood for mixing and matching outfit or thinking about which pattern and color suits my today's mood, I could simply grab the plaid ones. Then I'm ready to go. I matched it with my favorite washed out denim shorts and wrapped my flannel shirt around my waist for creating 90's look, proofing there are so many ways to wear plaid.

Cross Stitch Yells Love

Now I'm a free bird and going to wring every second of creative enjoyment. I fond of cross stitching since I had a cross stitch class in middle school. It's obviously simpler than embroidery. Then cross stitching becomes one of my hobbies I usually do in my spare time. As time goes by I want to make a display of it in a box frame in order to see it anytime I want without opening the drawer to see them one by one, or simply say for the sake of my cross stitch exhibition. This could be a nice gift idea as well. I put some pictures to make it more alive and interesting to stare at, just like the festive pop-up cards. There are still more but I'm going to post the three of my collections, I can say that it's a love trilogy cross stitch, haha!

Candy Apple

In the mood for vintage things, I was wearing my mom's DIY red blazer and pairing it with Stradivarius skirt, Gosh lace up sneakers, and my DIY embroidered headband. The red blazer's attractive pattern quite amuses my eyes and resembles easy-to-love colorful confectioneries. And I can say that the whole look reminds me of candy apples, inspire me to make some in the kitchen!
