NATURE & THE CITY

SIGI for Kiehl's

Seperti yang pernah saya jelaskan dalam salah satu post saya, salah satu dari sekian banyak alasan saya cinta banget sama Kiehl's adalah karena beauty brand yang satu ini punya berbagai kampanye yang pantas didukung. Nah, kampanye Kiehl's yang terbaru adalah "Nature & The City", di mana Kiehl's berkolaborasi dengan lembaga sosial Diet Kantong Plastik mengajak kita semua untuk ikut mengurangi penggunaan kantong plastik demi menjaga keseimbangan antara alam dan kota kita dengan slogannya "Kiehl’s Say No to Plastic Bags." If you'd like to learn more about the campaign and support it, continue reading this post.

THE PERFECT PALETTE

Sephora Medium Box Palette 1

When this Sephora Medium Box Palette arrived at my home I was ecstatic! Soalnya, sudah dari dulu saya ingin punya makeup palette seperti ini, tapi selalu ragu mau beli atau tidak dan bertanya-tanya, worth to buy nggak ya? Kenapa saya ingin punya makeup palette? Hihihi.. sebenarnya sih, karena sepertinya seru punya eyeshadow, lipstik, blush on dan bronzer dengan berbagai pilihan warna, tapi malas beli satu-satu produknya karena selain mahal belum tentu sering terpakai juga. Dari pengalaman saya, beli banyak eyeshadow dan lipstik dalam bentuk satuan belum tentu terpakai semua sampai habis, bahkan banyak yang terlupakan sampai kadaluarsa. Soalnya, saya bukan tipe cewek yang hobi dandan full makeup memakai mulai dari primer sampai bulu mata palsu. Saya lebih merasa nyaman pakai eyebrow pencil, maskara, blush on dan lipstik saja kalau pergi-pergi ke acara yang nggak formal. Kalaupun pakai eyeshadow, lebih sering pakai yang warnanya natural meski kadang suka eksperimen dengan warna lainnya. Makanya, kalau beli makeup palette yang ukurannya besar buat saya kurang tepat, soalnya selain butuh ruang terlalu besar untuk menyimpannya, lagi-lagi nggak semua warna akan sering saya pakai walaupun suatu hari pasti masing-masing akan terpakai. So, my solution is this Sephora Medium Box Palette which I'm currently in love with!

CUPCAKES COMPANY

Cupcakes Company

Remember the last time I reviewed a place to eat? Waktu itu, saya berkunjung ke Fitzroy dan Snow masih di dalam kandungan saya. So happy that this time, I get to do a review with her being outside of my tummy and also with my husband, Jones! Kali ini, saya ingin sharing tentang pengalaman brunch kami di store Cupcakes Company.

SNOW'S SWIMSUITS

Snow's Swimsuits

Next Wednesday, Snow will turn 5 months old and I think she's ready to splash some water in the swimming pool. That means I get to put on these cute little bikinis - only bought the pineapples printed one, the rest were gifts - on her. I hope she's not afraid of the swimming pool, I do like to bath her under a shower lately because it's more practical and she seems to enjoy it, I think it might help her get used to splashing water. I've been watching videos of swimming babies - my favorite is this one, to get ready for our first swimming session.

Just a few quick questions for you, at what age did you start introducing your baby to the swimming activity, how was it and what were her or his first reaction? I'd love to know!

Snow's Bikinis: Pumpkin Patch pineapple bikini, Mothercare polka dot and smock bikinis

WEDDING THROWBACK

Jones & Tara Wedding Day

Before October ends, I'd like to to take a moment to remember Jones's and my wedding day. 26 October 2013 was one of the happiest days for us, karena setelah melewati suka duka masa kami masih berteman sampai pacaran (lihat video Jones menceritakan tentang kami berdua di sini, spesifiknya di menit ke 30:25), akhirnya kami yakin ingin dan mendapat restu dari orang tua kami untuk menikah. These are a few of my favorite pics from that day, if you'd like to see.

SELF REMINDER

Quote

Been going a lil' bit crazy lately because my deadlines are piling up yet Snow is demanding my attention more than ever these days and when I leave her at home with my husband or the in-laws for work I feel so, so guilty. But I wanna be able to show my girl one day that I can live my dreams and she can do that too. For all mothers out there, keep your spirit alive, I do hope you can keep living your dreams and be a great mom at the same time. You're doing your best!
