Bali Wedding + Good News for Shopaholics!


Here's some lovely snippets from the wedding I attended this past weekend in Bali.
The groom, Erick, is one of my bf's close friends and he and his wife, Decy, has been together for 7 years! They are such good people, I'm so happy they finally tied the knot :)
The sun was SO bright that the wedding organiser were handing out sunglasses at the entrance for all the guests, including the bridesmaids! 8)
The vow...
…and the kiss!
Haha I love Erick's expression here! xD
The first dance. They look so cute together, aren't they? :)
I didn't take any pictures of the food, but it was amaaazing! The shrimp, the pork ribs, the sambals, EVERYTHING. URGH. I'm drooling right now reliving it!

Congratulations once again, Erick and Decy!
Best wishes for a happy life together! :D


What I Wore: Suite Blanco Top | GOWIGASA Blue Maxi Skirt | Whiting Davis Cage Minaudiere Clutch Gold | Jason Wu Mustard Leather Buckle Sandals

I chose my new maxi skirt in blue from Gowigasa for that elegant and classy look, plus it can also be my "something blue" for the wedding hehe. I paired it with this sleek gold clutch that I got from Shopbop. Like finally, my quest for a formal-yet-stylish clutch is over!! Fyi, it comes with a chain strap for convenient carrying, but you can also tuck it inside perfectly when not in use. :)

For shoes, I wore these leather sandals in mustard to tone down the 'gold'. They are surprisingly VERY comfortable despite the height, I swear! And you know what? I also got them from Shopbop! They DO carry a lot of pretty things! I always spend so many hours browsing their store to find the *perfect* ones.

Some of The Participants

Cute pose! Love the twin fashion style. XD

Me, Participating

 White car is the bomb. #NotRacism #JustAMatterOfPreference

 Met Hans too, here. Hi, Hans! It's always nice to meet you! 

I told Hans that I feel like Syahrini (a famous Indonesian celebrity), posing with a posh car like this HAHAHA.

 I drive both manual and automatic cars since I was 14 years old, so driving an automatic car like this is a treat for me (ya feel me, manual car drivers??).

 Loving the classy interior of this car as well.
I mean, look at that rich tan color! #ColorOriented

#OOTD: GOWIGASA Cara Black Leather Jacket & Deep Green Silky Maxi Skirt (coming soon to the website) | Topshop Top | Unbranded Necklace and Spike Bracelet | June + Julia Shoes

As you can see, Vin+ was the designated venue when I went for this #StarChase Competition. The last time I went there was on 2011… I guess? With Elle. It was one of our girls' night outs, just the two of us haha. Most of the time, we stay home watching movies, so rare opportunities like this, we ought to preserve lol.

Anyway, good luck for joining the competition. Very easy one, just snap to win so make sure you join haha! Thank you so much for reading and see you guys on my next post! (ˆˆ)づ♡

The JOKER Makeup Tutorial (EASY!)

 So, my first ever makeup tutorial happens to be my first time celebrating Halloween, heheh..
Well, actually not "celebrating" per se because I didn't go to any Halloween party, but for me, who has never done something Halloween-ny (I just don't like to participate in most things), doing this kind of makeup is kinda is! :"D

Watch the video ↑ to see the step-by-step tutorial and how easy it is! All the products I used are in the description box of the video.

My favourite part of this makeup: The Joker's scars!
 Ok, here's my costume!!! Hahahha so lame I know, but I just couldn't find a green vest and purple suit in such short time! #poorplanning

So instead, I went for this much easier and more convenient outfit. I thought I could just put on my white lab coat from my school days:
The late Heath Ledger as the Joker in 2008's "The Dark Knight".
But turns out my lab coat went missing! Been forever in my closet but the second I needed it, it's gone. Classic. So I ended up borrowing my cousin's who goes to the same school as me! Thank you, Yin/Thien!  
My full costume! ps. I wore white shorts underneath.
I decided to cover up the school logo with my 'Dent' name tag which I bought from Gramedia Book Store for about IDR 10,000 only! 
In case you didn't know, this Halloween getup is actually a collaboration with Stella Lee! And just like our first collab (Christmas collab in 2013), this was also an impromptu session ^^
 Too bad Jess got work to do, so she couldn't join us this time! boohoo.
 Go to Stella's blog to see her makeup tutorial! Eh, she's currently in Japan though, so I guess she will post it when she's back in town. :)
#OOTD ヽ(;▽;)ノ
Last snaps!!
What is Joker without bright and playful colours? ;)
Forget purple suit, I had purple nails!
Going to end this post with my favourite quote from Joker:

Happy belated Halloween everyone and I hope I put a "smile" on your face with my tutorial video! :D
