If you're following my Instagram then I bet you should've known that in the past few days I've been posting my OOTD (Outfit of The Day) photos wearing lots of super chic stuff from Wallis Dress Edit Spring/Summer 2014 Collection. As you might also realize, I haven't done much outfit posts for quite a long time since I was pregnant because I wasn't really comfortable with my new size and body shape (say bye bye to skinny figure). Plus, I didn't feel like buying one hell of new clothes with unfamiliar size, hence the very lack of (outfit) posts.
Taking this sweet offer from Wallis was actually a part of my self-challenge scenario so that I could keep this blog alive. Much to my surprise, Wallis Dress Edit Collection happens to fit like a glove and its materials are truly flattering to the wearer's body. Even when I was a size XS, I wasn't really confident pulling off jumpsuits but this time is different. I love wearing these fabulous Wallis jumpsuits to bits! And last but not least, I'd like to tell you that Wallis collections look a whole lot better when worn. Gotta love Wallis!

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! :')

Summertime is here, and there's nothing like wearing easy breezy piece of clothes while enjoying the beautiful weather.

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!
