Stories from Womb to World

>> Monday, June 30, 2014

Heyho everyone,

This would be one of the first motherhood posts on this blog. Kinda funny realizing how I have entered a new phase in my life that I’ve never imagined before. If you read through my first posts when I just started this blog, I was just a poor shameless little girl who aspired to score a job in fashion industry. And now, look at me, I got the job and I am no longer a girl now. I am a mother.
Much of a melancholic as I am, sometimes I can’t help reminiscing the ups and downs of my pregnancy. Despite the consistent nausea and vomiting, I was forced to be tough because my job demanded me to do one hell of tasks plus I gotta run errands all day carrying tons of fashion loans by myself. Plus I also had to take care of house chores when I got home. It was extremely exhausting and stressful but I tried not to be consumed by it because I worried it’d affect my baby. And when my baby was born, I started to worry about almost everything! From how to breastfeed correctly, how to signal baby’s cries, and the last but not the least, how to take a good care of her super sensitive skin!
A week ago I went to Mommies Daily gathering to join Pamper’s “Dari Kandungan ke Dunia” talk show. FYI, this is the first parenthood event that I ever attended and from there I learned a lot, about baby skincare especially. Unlike adult skin, baby skin is very sensitive and prone to rashes because it's not perfectly developed, therefore it surely takes an extra care for baby skin to keep it healthy and germ-free. Maintaining the cleanliness of baby's clothes and diapers would be the best thing moms can do to their babies. So when it comes to picking the right diapers, one of the things every moms need to pay attention to is that the type of materials used which are very important. New Pampers diapers contain aloe vera that's clinically proven to prevent diaper rash and not to mention the improved design for maximum comfort. Moms will always want to give the best, right? Plus, doesn’t it feel nice to touch baby’s smooth and healthy cheeky bums?
Last but not least, Mommies Daily & Pamper's are having bloggers writing contest and we invite you to submit your first pregnancy and delivery stories! Click the link for further details: http://5starsprotection.mommiesdaily.com/contest.php
And now please check the video below. Very beautiful! :')

Everyday Staples

>> Sunday, May 25, 2014

Howdy!
Summertime is here, and there's nothing like wearing easy breezy piece of clothes while enjoying the beautiful weather. One of Indonesia's top clothing brands, et cetera, has been undoubtedly famous for its casual chic wardrobes that could be worn throughout the season. Not only their designs are pretty versatile as a daily staple, they're also very easy to mix & match. As you can see on the pics below, I created five looks using their latest soft and bright casual collection. My favorite picks from the collection would be the light blue cardigans and the asymmetric skorts, they're too cool! Let's check them out.
Cardigans, knot shirt, and pants by et cetera. Shoes, Chanel.
Top and skorts, et cetera. Hat and clutch, Zara. Shoes, Balenciaga.
Cardigans, ruffles top, skorts, and striped cardigans by et cetera. Slingbag, Topshop. Shoes, Prada.
Dress and shirt, et cetera. Hat, River Island. Clutch, Coach. Shoes, Valentino.

Let The Day Begin

>> Wednesday, April 30, 2014

Heyho everyone.
Sincerely apologize for the long delay. My new role as a mom and an employee (yes, I've said goodbye to freelancing once again) demands a lot of time and energy, so I find it really hard to squeeze my time to sit and write something here. However, I'd like to share to you guys that I'm now working full-time as the Fashion Editor of Harper's Bazaar Indonesia. It's been only a few months and I'm pretty much enjoying it! For those who've been following my blog since I first started it must have known how much I love fashion journalism. Back in 2007-2008 I tried so hard to score an internship opportunity in local lifestyle magazines until my beloved mentor Thornandes James found me and gave me the ticket to enter Indonesia's fashion industry. You see, it takes a long time, one hell of efforts plus trials and errors, and a bucket full of dramas to actually get the hang of this so-called coveted role. It ain't an easy job, obviously. You can't expect to get the title as soon as you graduate from school, you gotta start from the bottom level to absorb the knowledge and skills as much as you can. Working is always about learning something until you become an expert. I'm still not an expert to the moment I type this, but at least now I can show you things I've learned from years and years working my ass off in this industry. ;)
 (Harper's Bazaar Indonesia April 2014 & May 2014 issue)

To compensate the lack of blog updates, you can find my writings on Harper's Bazaar Indonesia magazine or website. Not only that, you can also get the latest scoops of what's going on in Indonesia's fashion scene by following Harper's Bazaar Indonesia social media accounts like Instagram and Twitter, which I and all my colleagues will be contributing daily.

That's all for today. Have a great day everyone!

Looking Awesome with Monochrome

>> Wednesday, February 26, 2014

Heyho everybody!
For those who’ve been following me must know how much I love wearing anything in black and white. Sporting monochromatic outfits has already been my signature style, even most of my shoes are also in black and white. It’s the colors that make me feel totally confident, I don’t have to spend a minute looking at the mirror just to make sure I look okay. No need to think about how to mix and match anymore, because (to me) anything in monochromatic tone will work just fine.
There’s one more thing to boost your confidence other than super cool outfits: odorless body, that is. Awful body odor is a big turn-off and so is the stain your deodorant left on your clothes, and Rexona Invisible Dry could be the answer! Rexona challenges you to show your best style in black and white, and you might stand a chance to win tons of cool prizes.

Instagram Diary

>> Sunday, February 2, 2014

Heyho lovelies. You see I have been absent for quite a long time since I got pregnant, and now that my little one has turned 6 months old I decided to return and make this blog revived (again). As a starter, I'd like to post something no-brainer for an easy warm-up: instagram post that is. In case you haven't followed my instagram account, here's some bits of it that I'd like to share.
Shoes, shoes, and more shoes! For those who've been following my blog it ain't a surprise that my fascination with shoes seems to get even more severe. I wish I could post each shoes I own on my blog but since it's rather impossible to do so, at the moment instagram becomes my trustworthy media to showcase my babies.
Now let me introduce you my one and only miracle, also the reason of my long absence in this blogging world, Dylan Alodya Adiarso. She's the one who's gonna inherit all of my shoes and vintage stuff. Haha.
Have a nice day, everyone!
