Plastic or not plastic?

What is your first impression of these bags? They look exactly like those plastic bags you get in supermarkets right?!?! Yuph you're right! But, they are better! Why? Because they are re-usable! These bags aren't platic, they're nylon!
And you can take them when you shop around anywhere! Not just supermarkets but also when you shop for clothes you don't have to waste another plastic bag!
With a size of 10.5”x21.5", you can fit a whole lot of stuff in that tote!
Each bag is $28 for grabs! Check em out at!

You'll be stylish and saving the Earth as well!

21st July 2007

The 7th month of the year.. The 7th year of the millennium.. which also means the release of the 7th Harry Potter book! I can't wait! There's a special event in Plaza Senayan, Jakarta.. I'm still working on the permission from my mom.. but I hope I can go!
The dress code is "a lil bit of Harry Potter".. I'm not really sure about it, but I think it means we dress normal only with some touch of Harry Potter.. I think I'm just going to go over the top and dress like a Hogwarts student! Except I'll have my look "modernized".. I'm probably going to wear the skirt ALOT shorter with black stockings.. and with a grey cardie.. and I have this Gryffindor scarf I got years ago from a magazine, so I might wear that as well..
I'll post up a picture if I remember to bring my camera.. lolz..
make sure you GET that book !!!

first powder blush

Yes, I'm serious about my title of this post.. This is my first powder blush purchase.. After years of using cream blushes (I own about 6 of them.. and the contents are still far from empty), i finally bought some powder blush so that the color won't wash out too fast during the day... Like usual, I always do my research online and throughout magazines... And for my final decision, I choose MAC blush in Style as recommend by a makeup artist in Allure magazine.. So I went up to the MAC counter and I asked for "Style" and they said it's not stocked here! [ARRGHHH].. Instead of just walking away, I asked the counter-girl to recommend me some good blushes for me.. She recommend 3 colors.. First was a nice pink (think Chanel's fall runway look). But I thought I didn't like looking too fair.. So I asked her for a more brownish, peachy color to warm my skin up (Yes I am a picky customer who sometimes know more than the counter girls..). Then she recommend 2 other colors.. One lighter and one darker.. In the end I choose the darker one!
Check out this link for the color..
It's called "Peaches".. It looks really pale on the picture.. But it's actually much more vibrant that the color shown on the web.. Bottom line, I tried this color on my friend (who has a golden-dark skintone).. and the color is still flattering! great thing is, you can control the amount of color deposited on your cheeks..

Empty Luggage

long time since the last time i blogged! why? because I went to Singapore! I was actually expecting to buy a whole lot of new stuff.. but, I didn't.. Basically, sale items are from the previous season.. Second, the new fall items are not all displayed yet.. -_-''.. i hope i can go there again next month! I'm looking for good classic coats (like trenches but cropped because of the weather here).. I've been buying some nice feminine dresses lately.. And I really hate to look the same as other people in the malls (with leggings, flats, granny cardigan).. I don't think it's bad looking though. It's just that too much people are wearing it.. So my way of pairing those dresses is with a more masculine piece like military jackets (I'm aware they're not in right now.. but who cares), a parka cinched with a skinny belt (or sometimes i wear 2 skinny belts) or a vest...
One item I bought was an coral Armani Exchange minidress (can also be used as a top).. I was planning to buy the nice blue-green jewel tone.. but my size in that color is out of stock!
I was actually looking for grey skinnies.. but i couldn't find a good one.. so i didnt get it!

Faux Pearls... and chains...

Who's up for back-to-school shopping? I AM! ahhah...well.. I don't really do back-to-school shopping.. basically, i just SHOP. Anything good to buy, then I'll buy it as long as it doesn't break my wallet...
One thing I want to buy is a new tote! Sure backpacks are trendy right now, but I'm not into it.. So, I'll stick to cute totes.. ^^.. They're also more practical for my busy schedule! OK, enough about me.. Here's what I got to show you!

A New Home for my MacBook!

woohoo!! I no longer have to use the worker like laptop bag my mom bought (sorry mom.. but the bag is just "bleh"...) I found this bright pink Roxy laptop case just the other day I went to the Pointbreak store in Plaza Senayan.. I didn't buy right exactly at that time, but I bought it 2 days later! woohooo! However, I must say, the bag is short on little compartments for the adaptor.. Oh well, sometimes cuteness wins over usefulness!

Shift those Socks!

fashion spread from teen vogue august 07 issue

shift dresses. they seem to be getting trendier lately.. and they are not worn a lot in indonesia yet! soo.. that's great.. but im sure mangga dua will be filling their stands with shift dresses.. day-dresses are already popular here.. and im trying to find something different.. clearly, zara is not a good place to get dresses because everyone wears them.. *not good*.. although, i must admitt that zara is cheap and good!
anyways, shift dresses are looking like to be the new summer dresses in fall.. they are now cut really mini (hem stops at about mid-thing.. just like a mini skirt..).. they seem to be in bright colors! I love bringing back cheery summer colors into fall! it's just cheerful! =) haha.. Leggings seem to be slightly going away (and I'm glad it is. because.. wooo.. TOO MANY people are wearing it here! leggings were NOTHING before runways started to use them more..).. It seems that the trend now is, SOCKS.. yes, it's socks! magazines seem to be featuring models wearing mini dresses with thick shoes (chunky wedges, platforms or boots) with bright or patterned socks! I must say, I'm interested in this trend.. I've been wearing low ankle socks for like 3 years now! The last time I wore "unusual" socks was in grade 7.. I wore these japanese style leg warmers.. where Agnes Monica was wearing them in a soap opera "Ceweku Jutek".. I loved them soo much, but i got bored and switched back to low ankles..
well anyway.. since fall is colder, socks and wedges might not work too good.. but boots are good!.. socks are slightly scrunched just to "peek" a nice bright color on top of the boots.. (check the teenvogue spread image)

So, after I've blabbed all this.. i think you should all wear high socks now! Now you won't be marked as "dork" for wearing high socks! tell them it's in vogue! =)
and buy a bright shift dresses (don't worry, they're timeless..)

Who doesn't love the thin Motorola RAZR phones? You may not use one, but you wouldn't mind if someone gave it to you wouldn't you? Well.. Here's the good news.. Motorola is releasing the new generation of the RAZR phones.. It's called RAZR 2... 3 Phones are now in this range.. Moto V8, V9m, and the V9... V9 has the same thickness as the V3 phones... but the V8 and V9m are thinner than the V3 phones. However, they have less features..
All of them have 2 MegaPixel cameras (yeah!)... and you can send text message templates from the front screen.. so you don't have to open your open to actually send a message! They all support Mp3 format songs.. And they are equipped with Bluetooth! If internal storage is not enough, then buy a memory card chip to add some more memory!

Check out for more information..

Denim Update

Look at this cute Marc by Marc Jacobs hobo! And it's made out of denim! Clearly, I can always match this bag with my whole wardrobe! I must say, i love jeans and I have a whole closet of them.. So, next time I'm wearing jeans, I don't have to worry of what bag I'll be wearing..
I'll soon start saving for this bag! Price is USD$ 228.00 ,,,
