A Selfie on the Balcony

My face is not made for selfie, even after using some make-up. Terlebih lagi hp-ku nggak punya kualitas yang cukup baik buat selfie. So, saat wanita lekat dengan stereotype sekali selfie dapet ratusan foto, stereotype itu nggak berlaku di aku. Aku sangat jarang selfie karena pada akhirnya foto itu nggak bisa aku apa-apain juga, bahkan dipampang di instastory pun agak malu-maluin. Like, apa sih esensinya foto selfie yang kameranya biasanya bohong, yang bisa dilihat cuma muka, dan nggak punya cerita apa-apa?

But there came a day when I did my makeup, I did my hijab do, and found a good lighting to support my selfie-picture taking. Plus some curtain play to step up the selfie game. Oh, and some photo-editing tools to make them more Instagram-worthy.

This is when I adore myself physically haha. I bet you adore your appearance too sometimes, right? ;)
You need to, girls. Trust me!

By the way, just wanna write it here that I've finally found the lipstick color that I love. This is not sponsored at all (I got some fee from the company monthly but not for this post). I love Wardah Intense Matte Lipstick number 10. Not like other girls, I dislike wearing nude colors because it's not natural at all on me, it just makes my dark lips look worse. And I'm not comfortable with lip cream because I feel like there's something on my lips that disturbs me.

Photo Diary: I Wonder

It was the middle of January
The month I was born, the month something started
Probably every part of this story is a fantasy
Sometimes fiction and reality couldn't be parted

Surabaya Fashion Parade 2017: Moslem Runway (Part 3)

I thought I need to learn more about fashion so I could mention what kind of collections these two were. They might be too quirky for daily wear and had bridal gown too.

Hannie Hananto
Quirky. That's the first word for this collection. I can't avoid my eyes from seeing big heart-shaped ornaments and female line drawings all over the outer-wears, tops, dresses, and even veils. Big polka-dots are understandable in daily wear, but a bridal gown? Catch the spotlight, quirky bride!

Surabaya Fashion Parade 2017: Moslem Runway (Part 2)

New month, new life? Which girl will decline to wear a gorgeous princess-y dress in the ceremony of her new life a.k.a wedding day? These two designers' collections at Moslem Runway Surabaya Fashion Parade 2017 are the eye vitamin for girls who aim to have princess dress on her wedding.

Despite various types of the gown, all the bridal gowns in Rasya's collection fall wide from the waist area. They have 'tail', the skirts were longer at the back. Various kinds of fabrics were used, such as metallic, solid, transparent, and textured ones. There's a dress with elegant details with grid-textured fabric and gold lace, remind me of an era in European architecture/art. I always pay attention to a show's accessories or properties. And I fall for the twig-like headpieces on the models' hijab.

Surabaya Fashion Parade 2017: Moslem Runway (Part 1)

After coming with my first post about Surabaya Fashion Parade 2017 featuring UNESA's fashion show, this is the time to share what I saw on the 3rd day of SFP 2017, Moslem Runway. The first part of this series will show you some daily wear collections.

I'm sure the designer has improved her skill. Compared to the collection shown at last year's SFP "Elmira by Saffana", this year's collection is more dynamic. Still, I could see feminine touch in the collection. Different textures of fabrics were used, from the strength of velvet to the dramatic tulle. Magenta and sapphire blue played the main role, completing the broken white flowy fabrics.

A Breezy Fun Day in Pantai Babo

The sun was peeking through the spaces formed by the series of coconut tree leaves. The grayish sand met the waves of the sea. People ran happily, built their own castles by the sea. The fresh green of trees faded into dark blue as the distance become further. Three islets invited us to come into them. The meeting of the skies of blue and the teal sea? OOTD pictures we did!

One (Plus One) Days in Villa Indah Mooat

Syawal is a special month as we celebrate Idul Fitri on the first day of the month. It is when Indonesians do 'mudik' and gather with their big family. In recent years, Eid holiday came together with the school holiday, which means a super long holiday.

This year I went to my home in Kotamobagu. And here are the back-to-nature vacation my family and I started to do two days after eid.

I actually went to three places, but only had the documents of two of them. The first place was Villa Indah Mooat near the Mooat Lake. It's a private-owner villa but have been a pre-wedding photoshoot location since so long. Not a long time ago, it is opened for everyone who wants to come in and enjoy the good panorama from the beautiful garden they have. And the news about this place boomed here and there on my social media and chat groups.

Surabaya Fashion Parade 2017: GREYZONE

Well, I know it's the end of June already, but it won't stop me from posting about an event held in May. May is actually an exciting month because there are some sort of events held in Surabaya for the city's birthday celebration. Between all the events, Surabaya Fashion Parade is the one I don't want to miss since last year.

Alhamdulillah, I got invitations for two shows this year in Surabaya Fashion Parade 2017. The first show I came to was presented by Fashion Design students of UNESA. Themed "Greyzone", there were 4 collections made by the final year students.

Funtastic Force
Red, yellow, and green. Those three colors welcomed the audience when the show began. The silhouettes were simple. The explorations were more in the geometrical play applied in the clothings. Patterns were also used in this collection.

3 Things Indonesian Do During Ramadhan

Ramadhan is a holy month out of twelve other months of Hijriyah. It's a holy month because Muslim is supposed to do fasting every day in the month. Muslim is promised with a great reward for every good deed that's done in the month. Usually, people set some targets in their worship, like finishing reading a whole of the holy Quran and rousing the sunnah prayers.

However, besides the main things people do during Ramadhan, there are some cultures happen among Indonesian Muslim. Actually, the cultures may differ every region but generally, these are four of them:

Cerita Zetizen Editor's Choice

Hai, Pals! Apa kabar?

Sesuai janjiku minggu lalu, kali ini aku akan bercerita tentang apa saja yang dilakukan oleh Zetizen Editor's Choice, yang merupakan kelanjutan dari Zetizen Summer Class Internship.

Ada beberapa orang yang terpilih untuk lanjut mengerjakan proyek fashion editorial di Zetizen. Beberapa orang tersebut dibagi menjadi 2 kelompok dengan susunan yang sama seperti kemarin, yaitu terdiri dari fashion stylist, model, make-up artist, fotografer, dan videografer. Kali ini, aku tidak masuk dalam salah satu kelompok, tetapi benar-benar mengikuti proses dari kedua kelompok.

Apa sih, bedanya dengan proyek yang terdahulu? Untuk proyek ini, karya kami berhak dimuat di halaman Zetizen di koran Jawa Pos. Terbayang kan betapa excited-nya kami membayangkan punya satu halaman koran yang berisi karya kami sendiri?

Ceritaku di Zetizen Summer Class Internship

Halo, Pals!

Rasanya udah lama banget nggak aktif ngeblog. Mungkin kalian bertanya-tanya kenapa aku tiba-tiba muncul dengan tulisan berbahasa Indonesia. Ini semua ada hubungannya dengan cerita yang akan aku bagi. Sesuai judulnya, kali ini aku akan bercerita tentang salah satu pengalaman paling berharga dan berkesan di hidupku (yak, mulai lebai). Pengalaman berharga itu adalah menjadi Zetizen Squad yang beruntung bisa mencicipi magang dan menggarap beberapa proyek di Zetizen Surabaya.

Kenapa berharga dan berkesan? Pertama, karena ini bidang yang aku damba-dambakan sejak lama dan aku kira tidak ada jalan, tetapi ternyata tiba-tiba ada jalan yang terbuka setelah gagal apply Cerita Kita-nya GoGirl!. Kedua, di sini aku banyak bekerjasama dengan anak SMA, karena rentang umurnya memang maksimal 20 tahun. Dan umurku saat itu 20 tahun lebih. Di situ aku jadi tahu kalau anak-anak SMA di Surabaya itu keren-keren banget. Aku hanya butiran debu. Tapi kalaupun kamu merasa terlambat, jangan mundur Guys kalau ada kesempatan. Apalagi masih memenuhi requirement nya. Kalaupun enggak tapi kamu super pengen banget dengan keinginan menggebu di dalam dada, hajar aja!

Wanna know more? Stay tune, ya!
