NOTW: NYX Girls Sunday Afternoon

Today I wanna share with you my freshly painted nails. Nyx Girls nail polish in NGP109 Sunday Afternoon reminds me of Christmas and holiday a lot. I think this nail polish by NYX is also super appropriate for winter, especially because it is just so sparkly. I have owned this for quite a while but have never realized how pretty it is until recently. Let's check it out!

Tips & Tricks: For Fine Straight Thin Hair

Do you have fine straight thin hair? and you find that styling your hair is a pain in the ass because your hair is simply lifeless and flat? Does nothing seems to work the way you want it to be? I feel the same way too until I started to discover ways that really works to help in styling my hair, 2 months ago. I am writing this so that you can know how to too! Hope you find the post helpful! :)

Oh, just to show you, this is how my hair used to be.

and here are a few images of how I recently style my hair, just for reference!

Recent Fashion Haul

Hello guys, I am back again with another post. This time I wanna talk about recent fashion items that I got recently! Mostly are from Uniqlo because they were having opening promotion at Taman Anggrek Mall. Let's just get into the items.

Oh! Since these were items I got from local stores, I will also write this post in Indonesian :)
Sorry if the post looks boring because of the amount of writing!

Halo semua, pertama2 aku mau bilang dulu kalo misalnya bahasa Indonesia aku agak agak gimana gitu, mohon dimengerti ya, aku uda jarang banget nulis dalam Bahasa Indonesia, jadi agak kaku. Hehe. Oke, kali ini aku mau ngomongin fashion items yang baru baru ini aku beli. Kebanyakan dari yang aku sebutin di bawah aku beli dari Uniqlo berhubung Uniqlo baru buka di Taman Anggrek Mall trs lagi ada opening promo :P Maaf kalo aku ga bisa inform kalian, aku baru bisa tulis post ini sekarang dan promo nya berakhir kemarin, tanggal 12.

Circle Lens: Neo Cosmo Dali Extra Size Brown

I love natural circle lenses, especially brown colored ones. I have yet to find the perfect brown lens as most of them are either too bright, too huge, or just have too thick black outer ring. I was so excited when I finally found out about Dali lenses and I would like to thank KLensPop for the amazing opportunity to try this one. *beware, picture heavy post!

Review: Etude House Proof 10 Eye Primer

My eyelids used to be really oily after a couple of hours outside. Eye shadows and eyeliner always seem to smudge a lot, making my eye makeup look horrible after a while. However, I have to say that my eye make up has never budge anymore when I use this eye primer before applying any eye make up. I really love this product and I think everyone else need to know how amazing this product is! :)

November Favourites

My Christmas Wishlist

01. sequin dress. for special occasions. (white sequin) (black sequin)
I am currently obsessed with sequins and to find the perfect sequin dress is definitely on the list. I have yet to find one that I really love. I couldn't even find one to my ultimate liking online, guess I still have to keep looking. The white sequin dress above is quite near to perfect but I would like it better if it was off-white and a little bit more sparkly. Oh well...

02. clear acrylic clutch. 
THIS ONE! everyone seems to have a little clear acrylic clutch already. It seems to be trending so much lately and I love love love how it looks combined with everyday chic style. I'll definitely get something similar to this. Maybe in a week or so.

03. the perfect red nail polish.
I have been wanting to own a red nail polish for quite a while now. I don't have any because I don't think vibrant red will look good on me. I am looking for the perfect classic red nail polish. I need one which is not too vibrant and not too dark, more to a deeper red. So far, the two that I like the most are Chanel 475 Dragon and Essie Limited Addiction. Do you, by any chance, know a cheaper version of these i.e drugstore/korean brands? Because Chanel is just way too pricey and Essie is not easily available in my country. Would love to know! 

04. mini skort.
Another fashion item that I have been wanting for quite some time. I think this is super edgy! Don't you think so?

05. little Christmas tree diy.
I'm thinking of doing a little diy project and build my own little Christmas tree. I am not 100% sure what I'm gonna do but I'm excited to create a simple decoration for my room!

06. laura mercier artist's palette for eyes.
YEP. Who hasn't heard about this yet? Most of the beauty bloggers / youtubers that I know have talked about this. I don't even own a naked palette yet but now I want this more than any other palettes out there. The color is just super perfect! It has the perfect balance of shimmery and matte eyeshadows. If you haven't heard about this before, then you should definitely google this. It's amazing! ♥ I can't even provide link where you can get it.

Oh, I created the above image set with Dailylook :P Played around a little bit and found it addicting. kekeke. Just found another web called Polyvore which allows us to create something similar like this too! Perfect for you who doesn't have photoshop! However, I find that Polyvore might be a little more fun as they also include home stuffs other than fashion. Expect more sets like this to be posted on the blog, simply because I find it really addicting :p

What do you think of my Christmas wishlist? 
Do you have anything in mind that you really want to get for Christmas? 

Review: Skinfood Rice Mask Wash-off

I have been using this for quite a while and I am loving it so much. I usually use this 1-2 times per week depending on my mood and skin condition. I bought 20 little sample packets of these almost a year ago and 2 months ago after I am done with all of those, I decided to buy the full jar. I regret not buying more of those little samples as I think they are a lot cheaper and are very handy for travelling. 1 little packet can last me to 3 usages. Isn't it great? and the price was like what SGD 0.30 / IDR 2,000 at that time. GAWD. Stupid me. Okay, stop. Let's get onto the real review.

Tutorial: Subtle / Natural Everyday Smokey Eye Make-up

Yay to my first eye make-up tutorial ever! :D Basically, as you can see on above photo and the title, what I want to share with you is how to achieve a subtle smokey eye make-up which is still appropriate for everyday as well as for the weekends.

I am currently so in love with this look and have been doing it every time I go out for the past 2 weeks. I find that this look will look flattering on those with monolids or asian hooded eyes, like myself. For those of you who don't know, my eyes are kinda hooded/droopy or more likely should be called hidden double eyelids. I have this fat which just droops down and cover almost all of my eyelids, making it look like monolids. If you wanna know about how I did this look, then keep reading! <3

Little changes

Hey everyone! I was just playing around a little around the blog and decided that the blog needed some little changes. I basically did change a little on the sidebar on the "about me" section. Added a few more buttons to it and finally decided to create a facebook page, twitter account, as well as an instagram account dedicated to the blog! Yay.. Check them out on the left sidebar or below this blog post. Be sure to follow them all, okay?! :p I also did add a cute Pinterest pin it button on hover. That way you all can start pinning everything you like from this blog :)♥ because who doesn't love Pinterest? :P Tell me what do you think about these little changes

Ps. Currently thinking of writing an eye makeup tutorial, subtle smokey eye, as I've been loving how it looks on me so much. I'm not so sure though because I don't really know how to write a proper tutorial. Let me know in the comment below if you would like to see a tutorial on this kind of look. I need encouragement! :p (pardon the weird posing of the second image, that was the only picture I have which really shows the smokey look)


Review: Skinfood Peach Sake Pore BB Cream SPF20 PA+ #2 Natural Beige

Hello! I'm back with another review of Skinfood product. This is Skinfood Peach Sake Pore BB Cream in shade #2 Natural Beige. This has been my go-to foundation product ever since I got it almost 2 years ago. I have tried so many different BB creams, mostly from the Etude House but none of them is this great. Okay now, let's get into the real review!

Hellooooo! I'm back with new haircut ;)

Helllooooooooow everyone! I'm soooo sorry for being away for quite some time. I know it's been 2 months since the last time I blogged. Yeah, I've been pretty busy with things and stuffs so I didn't really have to time to manage and update the blog. Pheww~ So sorry!!

Stillllll, I can't help but to say that I am surprised looking at the blog stats and the number of followers. I get more or less 150 views everyday and new followers even though I stopped updating this blog. So happy to know that people are still enjoying the blog and finds that my previous posts are helpful :)

I promise I will update the blog with a real post quite soon! You can have my words. PROMISE~
In the meantime, let me tell you something. I just had a haircuttttt yesterday. I guess this news is the one thing that motivates me to really update this blog again :p Although it might not sound like a big news to you all. It is for me! I've been having long longgg hair ever since I was in primary school and had never everrrrr cut it this short. However, I am proud to say that I loveeeeee my new hair! Really can't wait to style it ;D


So, what do you think about it? :)

Review: Clinique Moisture Surge Extended Thirst Relief

Ever feel like your skin is so dry that it is so itchy and just flaking everywhere? Yes. I know how that feels. Clinique Moisture Surge Extended Thirst Relief is something you need to know about. It is my holy grail skin care product and I am just soooooo addicted to it.

Review: Sephora Birthday Gift Palette

Hi guys, I finally managed to get my birthday gift palette from Sephora. My birthday was actually a month ago, in July but the gift was still available to be redeemed until September. So, why not? :p and oh, this post is picture heavy!

Currently Coveting

Simple Everyday Make-up + Current Nails

I am going to leave the town for a week tomorrow so I don't think I will be able to post any next week. So this is a little something. Today, I will share with you my simple everyday make-up and my current nails :)

Pardon the huge face of mine, but I just have to put one huge photo as it is the only way to make my eye make up stands out so that you can see it clearly. This is how I usually do my eyes, almost everyday. Products that I used to achieve this look are mentioned after the jump.

Review: The Faceshop Rice Water Bright Cleansing Foam

This is currently my everyday cleansing foam. At first I got it because I read so many good review of it on G-Market a year ago. Well, it really is a nice product. This is now my second tube already and I'm super loving it.

Review: Benefit High Beam and Sun Beam

I am in love with these two products. I got these from my aunt. I initially only asked for Benefit High Beam but she misunderstood me and thought that I want both of these. Well, guess what? I love them both!

Summer Vacation: Bali! ♥

I am sorry for being away for a few days. I went for a summer vacation to Bali, Indonesia with my friends :) It was a 5 days and 4 nights vacation. I loved it and had soooo much fun. To tell you the truth, this is my first time visiting Bali. It might sound weird, coming from a twenty years old Indonesian girl who loves to travel a lot. Oh well, every time my family went to Bali, I was either busy with school or college so I never had any chance to go. Finally..... !!!

June Favourites

Hey, it might be a little too late to post a June Favorite but I guess it's better late than nothing, right? I've been loving these products so much and I just can't help but to share it with you guys. If you have never tried them before, you should definitely check them out! :)

Review: Etude House Fresh Cherry Tint in #3 Cherry Peach

Hello guys! Today I'm going to review my current lip favorite product: Etude House Fresh Cherry Tint in #3 Peach. I got this about half a year ago but did not use it until two weeks ago. Yeah, I know it is weird but at first I just did not think the color really suits me because it turned quite pinkish when applied. But after trying to work this lip tint for quite a while, I figure it is just because I am not so used with pinkish lip color.

Nails and Outfit of the day!

I've been loving glitter nail polish, especially gold, and kinda addicted to them these days. I just can't leave the house without some glitters on my nails. Glitter gradient nails are currently my favorite! They are just so easy to do and so sparkly. Oh well, who doesn't love sparkly :p

What's up.

Just a summary of what happened last week in pictures ♥ 
I'll just let these pictures do the talking because they do a better job in explaining than me :p

Clinique Haul

I have dry combination skin, mostly dry skin but an oily T-zone. I have been struggling a lot in choosing skincare products because I need to moisturize my skin a lot but at the same time I experience breakouts a lot if they do not suit me well. This is why I have always been wanting to try this particular moisturizer, the Clinique Moisture Surge, so much. Because so many people have been saying how good it is in moisturizing without resulting breakouts.

New blog. Fresh start.

Hello everyone. My name is Bella and I am currently obsessed about makeup and photography. 

I have tried writing a few times but none have worked out, I guess I am just the type of person who is always either too lazy to write or simply have so little time to update the blog regularly. However, I have been reading a lot of others' blogs, be it about fashion, beauty, makeup, photography, life, etc and I have been itching to write again after quite some time. So, I guess I will try to update as regular as I can. 

Hope you enjoy your stay and thanks for stopping by! :)
