September Beatitude 2017


Hello, Guys! I know it is a bit late to share my favorite things of September 2017 but I guess there is nothing too late for goldy things right?

Truthfully I have been quite occupied with works and college. Things have been rolling in like sandstorm in Sahara. Sounds too much? But that is the analogy of my life lately.

September was a really great month so far, many debatable issues which caused conflict between wants and needs. I also had my first trip to Bromo Mountain in Malang for the first time in forever! Merci, September!

This time I am not going to show you about my trip to Bromo Mountain but firstly I would be showing you things that gave me joy the most.

“My heart wandered through the world, constantly seeking after my cure, but the sweet and delicious water of life, had to break through the granite of my heart.” 

Ever heard of this line? The Rumi Daybook is a poetry book which has 365 poems and teachings from the beloved Sufi Master. Imagine you can finish the poem one each day. Read and feel the rhymes within your soul and I am pretty sure that is how it works. Each of the poems has its own meaning and implied lesson thus it is good for a little enlightenment for your day.

My most favorite Floppy Beach Hat from H&M. I accidentally found the hat when I was in cashier and saw it got 40% discounts, my heart was pounding, perplexed whether to take it or not but I couldn’t stop the desire and eventually said, “May I take this one too please?”. And that’s how it went. Haha! However I am going to wear this hat for my upcoming vacation to Bali in early November, thus another Look Book is about to come more!

The sophisticated and lovely smell from Wild Argan Oil Body Butter of the Body Shop has always pampered my day. It soothes my skin perfectly could get my skin moisturized in a short time.

Last but not least, a song! Actually I have been keeping up with The Royals TV Series which got me one favorite themed song from it. Speaking of Truth by Laleh. This Swedish singer has a very authentic voice and as I listen to it, I could easily follow the unique rhythm which somehow I could not stop.

Although I am not really sure but I think this song tells about the woman who tries to speak about the truth that she is in love with the man but the man she thinks perfect seems so greedy of love. However, she still wants to be with him. That’s what I assume so far, what do you think?

These are my favorite things in September. What are yours? I hope this October would be a very pleasant month for everyone. However, to make up my delayed post last week, I got something coming right up for you after this post. So, stay tuned! Have a great weekend! 🙂

The Body Shop Haul Including NEW Lip Matte Liquid


I was recently bumped into The Body Shop store nearby and found some new babies. Not literally babies. Make-ups are the babies.

I was actually looking for a compact powder since I ran out of it and it cried me a river. Kidding! It was also my first time using compact powder from the Body Shop and I thought I was going to give it a review along with another babies too.

Lip Matte Liquid – Crete Carnation 030

The first thing that I would like to review before all is their latest Lip Matte Liquid. They just launched this new type of matte liquid and I wanted to try it out. Its texture is slightly soft, the scent is really sweet which I love the most, but unfortunately I think this is not the best product they have. It doesn’t get matte on my lips that quick and doesn’t really last that long but I still like it to use it at college, home or somewhere around not too far from the neighborhood. It costs for $10.

Osaka Plum Matte 429

But this one is different. It gets matte really quick and lasts quiet longer. I love how it matches with the texture of my lips and its red wine color which I have always wanted. Its textures itself is pretty smooth and I recommend this one for Body Shop’s lipstick.

All-In-One Face Base 052

Finally the savior of my college life has arrived. This is the first time I started to use Body Shop’s powder compact, I am not disappointed to purchase this product since I am head over heals in love with its sophisticated packaging. It also absorbs face oils which could help my skin look fine for the whole day.

Rainforest Radiance – Detangling Spray for Colored Hair

This hairspray has been a good friend to me since highschool since I used to have colored hair though right now I am wearing hijab. I like using this hairspray after shower to keep my hair hydrated though I know the main purpose of its hairspray is to maintain colored hair to stay longer.

Drops of Youth – Youth Bouncy Sleeping Mask

Actually this one is a sample I got from the shopkeeper. Drops of Youth is also The Body Shop’s latest product to be best applied before sleep. It is sort of vitamin to keep your skin hydrated. It felt refreshing as I rubbed it around my face skin and I think I would like to have some more.

That’s all I have got from this week’s shopping haul with The Body Shop. Have you ever tried any of these yet? If yes, tell me what you think and let’s have a conversation in the comment box below. Have a great weekend, loves!

Color Show by Maybelline

beauty, Latest Posts

This time, I’ll be reviewing this popular nail polish by Maybelline, Color Show. Honestly, I never had my nails polished on before so I wanted to give it a try.

I bought the Moon Beam 103 Color Show. I also have White Tip Pencil by Oriflame and a Nail Buffer by The Body Shop. You can easily get them in any make up stores nearby.

The first thing I had to do was to get my nails buffed, so it would help the nail polish work properly on the shining and smooth nails. I really like the Nail Buffer I have from The Body Shop, because I’ve tried any brands for the nail buffer and they made my nails uglier instead. It has 4 sides :

1. File Nail Edge / Limer
This side helps you to file your nails as you wanted. It could be rounded, square or oval shape.
2. Remove Ridges / Lisser
Before you start smoothing your nails, it’s best for you to remove the ridges first. Begin to buff your nails with a gentle, side-to-side motion.
3. Smooth Nail / Adoucir
Your nails now look healthier and the result will be much healthier than ever indeed. Buff your nails with a gentle, side-to-side motion again. Don’t lose your faith girls.
4. Shine Nail / Faire Briller
This one is my favorite. Keep buffing your nails and your nails will be shining bright like a diamond.

Then second, I colored the inside of my nails with White Tip Pencil by Oriflame. It’s actually not really important and the result by using this one won’t be really significant too. I used this to make the inside of my nails look cleaner.
The last thing I had to do was polish my nails with Color Show. It was really hard for the first time, you need to be patient and need extra attention on it or your nails will be messed up. And this is how my nails look like,

I started loving to get my nails polished. When the moment I had just done with my nails, my nails felt cold somehow but if it happens to you, it’s fine and there’s nothing to worry about because it’s an absorption process temporarily.

Are you interested to get your nails polished now? Great! You can follow those super easy steps and good luck! 🙂

What I Wore to Prom 2015

fashion, Latest Posts

I just attended my school prom yesterday. My prom preparation wasn’t far from the post I’ve posted “DIY : Well-Dressed for Prom 2015 from HEAD to TOE (for Girls)“. I did it all myself, from make up, hair styling and shopping indeed. Let’s see how I did it from head to toe.

1. Hairstyle
I didn’t put a lot of effort on hairstyle. Well, I basically did in the first place. I successfully curled my hair but the problem was on hairspray I used. The curls didn’t last longer and it had gone straight on the way I went to the hotel. I changed the hairstyle with Frozen Elsa’s hairstyle in the car right away, not the braid one but the updo bun. I’ve learned the steps on Lilith Moon’s video on youtube, her tutorial is perfectly easy to be followed at home and I also could wear this hairstyle for day out as well.

And this is how I did it.

Well, not bad if you’re in a rush.

2. Make Up
I only used one brand for additional make-ups such as eye liner, liquid lip color and eye shadow. I also have posted the review of them (Additional Make-Up by MAKE OVER).

For eye shadow and eye liner, I followed the steps on 1minutemakeup tutorial on instagram. Using sellotape to get the line straight. Seems ridiculous but perfectly works!

3. Nails
I didn’t put a lot of effort for nails because I didn’t have enough time to get my nails polished. I wasted a lot of time on curling my hair and ended with failure. So, I only got my nails manicured with this super easy nail buffer by The Body Shop I usually use for daily basis.


Thought what I currently have right now is quiet filthy and broken. But I’m still comfy with this one and I still get the perfect polished nails 🙂

4. Dress and Choker
I wore a very elegant dress by minimal. The texture of the dress looks fancy and kinda hippie but still elegant. It was actually chosen by my mother and in the blink of an eye, I’m head over heels in love with it already.

Don’t know exactly what it is, but it looks like needles with combination of black, silver and gold which gives fancy look.

6. Heels
I wore this super comfortable and elegant high heels by Nine West. The leather cord binds my leg precisely.

And this is how I wore it.

All of my friends and I enjoyed the 4 hours of prom so much. Everyone looked very fabulous than ever. But going to prom doesn’t mean that you have to compete on the dress you wear with everyone in the room. It’s about togetherness you’ll never feel again in the look you never showed to your friends.

The prom I attended was very courteous and unique. We watched our own school documentary and brought DJ in the last minute of prom. We didn’t get drunk and stuff. Everything was under control and I liked it how the prom went very well in a polite way.

We raised our hands up, we jumped, we danced and we laughed. I didn’t jump but lifting my knees up and down instead. Save your shoes girls!

Good luck with your prom and have a great day! 🙂
