HOW TO MAKE RESOLUTION

Thursday, December 31, 2015

It's almost 2016! It is actually D-1 yayyyy!!!! Time flies so fast I can't even remember what happened in the year of 2015! A lot of things happened for me, turned out to be one of the best years on my life. I'm so ready for the great year ahead! I'm ready for 2016! 

I always have new year resolutions. Believe it or not, I try so hard to get them done. Honestly, I haven't get them done in every new year resolutions, but at least, every year it gets better and better and I think, the most important thing is not how many resolutions you achieved but how you do it, what lessons you get from those path to achieve your resolutions, what memories you can keep forever, which resolution you find most challenging

By years and years I write down my own resolutions, here are my ways to make resolutions. If I follow these following tips, my way to achieve it also more open or at least, I can get through the challenging path.

CRIMSON PEAK 2.0

Tuesday, December 29, 2015

I know I know, I've wrote the review about this amazing movie. To point the title, why 2.0 is because, I'm going to tell my thoughts about this movie and the movie novelisation. Yes, you read it right. There's an official movie novelisation out there. I got mine here

The movie itself hasn't available for pre-order yet, hopefully soon. As I read the whole story, deeper than the movie, I realised Crimson Peak deserved more attention. 

Like I said in my first review, this movie is visually stunning and beautiful. All the details will catch your attention, even the smallest things. People kept saying it's all the CGI but the director, Guillermo Del Toro and the special FX makeup artist, David Marti, revealed behind all the beautiful creepiness about this movie, some sort of like behind the scenes. We didn't see the entire process of course, we all only see pictures but that's enough to prove that the CGI effects only add some more of beautifulness, creepiness to the movie. I terrified to see Tom's and Jessica's dummies, both looked ridiculously real! 



CINEMA: IN THE HEART OF THE SEA

Wednesday, December 23, 2015

I watched this movie few weeks ago with my sisters and brother on a Friday night. I meant to write this post earlier but overwhelmed with all the graduation preparation (ck, girl being a girl!), college application, and put this too darn long. 

In the Heart of the Sea is inspired from Moby Dick. I kind of familiar with this novel thou, like people keep talking about how great this classic novel but never read it and I seriously have no idea why.


When I watched the trailer for the first time, I was so excited! This movie has some of my favourite actors like Chris Hemsworth, Ben Whishaw, and Tom Holland. The trailer was so good, it caught my attention and made me looking forward for the movie. It was around 3 or 4 months ago I think. 

PLAYLIST: WAY OLDER THAN ME

Sunday, December 20, 2015

Music has been taking a huge part of my life because my Dad is a huge fan of music especially in country and instrumental, but seriously, every day he turns on the music player with all his cool equipment so the whole music sound so much better. I wake up to music blasting from downstairs in almost every single day. My Dad has been very busy lately and it's sad that he doesn't have his "me time" with those cool music equipment. 


Long short story, I'm kind of familiar with musicians from 50's to 80's. I was born on 1992 so it is kinda normal for me to be familiar with musicians from 90's but from the year of 1960? Girls at my age are so into Adele, Skrylex, The Weeknd, or at least John Mayer (needless to say I'm a huge fan of John Mayer!!) but my music is more than that. It sounds so bitchy but it is true, when I asked my friend either he knew about Stevie Wonder or not, he said "That's my Dad's song, not me." I have to say, my friend is also a really good music listener. See? 

Here are some of my favourite songs from way back then, enjoy ;) 
  1. All I Do - Stevie Wonder 
  2. Be My Baby - The Ronettes
  3. Blowing in the Wind - Bob Dylan 
  4. Can't Help Falling in Love - Elvis Presley 
  5. Come Softly to Me - The Fleetwoods 
  6. Don't Stop Believin' - Journey 
  7. Friday I'm in Love - The Cure 
  8. Got My Mind Set on You - George Harrison 
  9. Hey, Good Lookin' - Hank Williams 
  10. Hotel California - Eagles 
  11. I Saw the Light - Hank Williams 
  12. I Want to Hold Your Hand - The Beetles 
  13. Move It On Over - Hank Williams 
  14. Why Don't You Love Me - Hank Williams 
  15. Yesterday - The Beetles

GRADUATION STORY: BACHELOR!

Saturday, December 19, 2015

After around 4 years of study at Indonesia University of Education, I finally graduated as a bachelor of education yipppieeeeee!!!! 

I passed my undergraduate thesis examination on August 27th, and officially got my bachelor degree yesterday, December 16th, to say yesterday wasn't one of the best days of my life would be such a vast understatement. 


I'm so blessed, surround with people who cherish me the most, support me through everything, and share the love I always need. I would never graduated without them. I would never be able to finish my study without their support, their love. I'm the luckiest person in entire world to have these amazing people in life. I can't thank them enough! 

Here are some of my favourite moments from my graduation. Fast forward to 5 years from now, I'll be happy to look back to this post. I'm positive my feelings are going to be same as I am feeling right now.


ABOUT ME: BODY ISSUE

Tuesday, November 17, 2015


I never thought I would post something like this. This is not a subject that I comfortable to talk about because it is very sensitive not only for me, but also for most people. This is become one of people's issues for years.

Reasons why I don't like talking about this because firstly, like I said, it is a very sensitive subject to most people. Second, some people gonna judge anyway. 

Reasons why I want to talk about this because first, I want to encourage people. Second, haters gonna hate anyway, so suck it off. I don't care ;) 

So, let's begin.

ABOUT ME: IMITATION

Tuesday, October 27, 2015


It always irritates me when someone is trying to copy or imitate what I'm doing, what I'm wearing, what I'm saying and stuffs. No, I didn't say I'm so popular and people look up to me, what I'm trying to say, we live in a world where some people admire certain things of you and it becomes such a usual habit for them.

Let's be real. No one wants to live with her/his out-of-sudden-twin, right? 

Especially when it comes to your creativity, something that really matters to you because you're the one who think about it, you're the one who make it happens. Suddenly, these people are letting themselves to copy your creativity. It's never a good feeling. 

CINEMA: CRIMSON PEAK

Monday, October 26, 2015


First of all, I really don't know how to start. It's been few days now since I watched Crimson Peak and I haven't recovered yet from all the feelings this movie gave me.

Second of all, this might be the hardest review I've ever done. I already bad at explaining things and writing this review make me even more realise I am so bad at this. I mean, probably, this review is not enough to sums up my feelings toward this movie and all the beautiful details.

Seriously, TOO MUCH FEELINGS!

Spoilers alert! Don't blame me, you've been warned! Enjoy my thoughts of Crimson Peak. See you at Allerdale Hall! 

CINEMA: THE WALK

Tuesday, October 20, 2015

I watched this movie with one of my best friends. The actual plan was actually just ate burgers and talked. I didn't have any mood for movie that afternoon but after saw the cast and the iMDb rating, we finally came to the decision for book the tickets.

The Walk is based on true story from Phillippe Petit on 1974. He walked on wire crossing WTC. I have to say, this guy was insane! He was completely lost his mind because he didn't use any safety. Crap! 


ABOUT ME: FLAWS

Monday, October 19, 2015


Years ago, on one fine night after taking all of my makeup off, I was staring at my mirror and looked closely into my face. I was figuring every inch of it, divided which part is my favourite and not my favourite. Why those certain parts are not favourite anyway? What's wrong with them? 
Because they're not good enough
I woke up from my chair and stared at my standing mirror, learned every inch of my body. I also have certain parts that I don't really like there. What's wrong with them? 
Because they're not good enough.
I wish I have slimmer face... I wish I don't have dark circles under my eyes... I wish I have slimmer body...  I wish I have perfect nose 

The more I think, the more I find out about my flaws. There are some parts of me more than just physical condition, but the way I think about people, the way I think about certain conditions, the way I think about world! It comes to conclusion that I have so many flaws and all the "I wish" is not helping at all. Part of my body that I don't like are just a small part of my flaws.

VANITY: PAMPER ROUTINE

Wednesday, October 14, 2015

I share my how to de-stress tips in my previous post and one of my tips is give yourself once a week a pamper routine. I usually do my pamper routine on Saturday night or even better, Sunday night. 

Q: What is pamper routine?

A: It is a beauty routine that recommended to do once a week. Not your daily beauty routine, but a deep cleaning and relaxing routine.

Without any further do, here's my pamper routine: 

CINEMA: THE MARTIAN

Tuesday, October 13, 2015

I haven't read the book, to be honest, it's always hard for me to read science fiction books. I have to be in certain mood to read those. I feel like such a bad reader.


First of all, I have to be honest. I underestimated this movie ever since I watched the trailer. Matt Damon and Jessica Chastain in one movie again after Interstellar (even thou they didn't have any scenes together) and for me, it looked like the second movie for Gravity or Interstellar or both.

Second of all, with no means, I truly like this movie. I felt so bad to have such a negative opinion when I watched the trailer (but hey, I wasn't the only one) because it is really a great movie in every aspect. Yes, I still thinking The Martian is like Gravity, Elysium and Interstellar in one. So, it's like, mash up? I don't know.

Before we jump on my opinion about this movie, I want to give you a friendly reminder that this post might be contain spoilers :) 


CINEMA: THE VISIT

Thursday, October 08, 2015


I'm not a big fan of horror/thriller movies. Well, I probably can deal with horror movies with scary creepy ghosts but thriller is really not my thing. I can't deal with murder scenes and stuff like that. My sister, otherwise, is quiet a big fan of those kind of movies. She loves - not, obsessed with thriller movies. We both love watching movies and we both are like identical twins, we almost do everything together so when she wants to watch thriller movie, I watch with her - with my hands covered my face, hardly can tell I'm watching. 


We saw the trailer months ago at theatre and that was an interesting trailer. Somehow, it reminded me of Insidious and The Sixth Sense (well, it is same director with the sixth sense) and I can say I want to see this movie. My sister was so excited to this movie obviously, and I was too. Surprise surprise! 

PLAYLIST : GOOD NOT-SO- OLDIES!!!

UPDATE: WHAT'S IN MY HANDBAG?

Saturday, October 03, 2015


I bought new handbag around July and I've been wearing it for almost everyday ever since. This is a Fendi peekaboo handbag size large in the colour nude. I got it online and pretty satisfied with the service. 

This bag is amazing! It goes with every outfit and fits everything I need during the day! So... Without any further do, let's dig into it!




CINEMA: DARK PLACES

Friday, October 02, 2015


I can't compare about the book and movie because I haven't read the book yet



Ever since I saw the trailer I was driven towards seeing Dark Places. Firstly, I like Charlize Theron as an actress and a woman and I enjoy seeing her characterizations which often are full of depth which divides great actors from good ones. The poster itself was quite interesting to look at.

BOOKSHELF: A WORK IN PROGRESS

Wednesday, September 30, 2015


I don't usually read memoir or biographies/autobiographies but the day when I knew Connor Franta wrote a book, I feel the urge to buy and read his work. Not because he is one of my favourite YouTubers, but it is because I admire his creativity and the way he sees the world (now I sound like I know him really well) so I thought his writing will be something different. 

Unfortunately, his book wasn't available in any book stores at the city where I lived in when it came out. This happened so many times before, I get used to the delay. So I decided to wait for another month and then another years. I saw so many good reviews about this book, even it became #1 best seller at New York Times for 14 weeks (I'm not sure but he talked about this in his video) and that's something. 

I finally bought it online. The online book store that I trusted and it's from Singapore, so practically, I bought it import. It took 2 weeks until I got the beautiful paperback in my hand. Once I got it, I read it for 2 hours non-stop. 



CINEMA: THE SCORCH TRIALS

Tuesday, September 29, 2015


It actually took so long for me to write a movie review, especially when it comes from my favourite book. Reason is because I really have no idea how to describe it. The best way I can describe is I have two point of views which is weird for me. 


First, I don't like this movie.Second, I like this movie.

Confuse? Me too. 

Let me share my thoughts just so you know, this post may contain spoilers :) 

HOW TO DE-STRESS

Thursday, September 24, 2015

I haven't write any blogpost for almost 2 months and it was all because I worked on my undergraduate thesis and now, it is finally done!! I got my bachelor degree in education on August, 27th, 2015 and that was one of the biggest things I've ever done in my life. 




In the terms of hard work to get my undergraduate thesis done and to finally get my bachelor degree, I've experienced a lot of hard times. A lot. No kidding, that was so stressful and so much pressure! Through those hard times, I also learned to how I de-stress myself

Stress is a natural thing when you feel overwhelmed about your school tasks, your works, your life, that's normal. Everyone has it.

VANITY: GO TO BLUSH!

Friday, July 31, 2015



I'm so pale


That's the fact and everyone knows about it. I don't use make everyday, to be completely honest, if I go outside then I'll go with 'no makeup makeup' that's the thing.

People see me as a makeup lover but in fact, as much as I love makeup, I don't use them everyday but, I do use blush almost every single day (starting from 2015, gotta change makeup routine y'all!) and I found that perfect shade of blush can make a huge change to my pale face.

So without any further do, here are my go to blushes that really work for me!



REVLON POWDER BLUSH - SMOKY ROSE

The colour is beige-y pink, looks and feels very natural on my fair skin. I love how it brightens my face and makes even more radiant. This blush is perfect with literally every makeup look! Smokey eye? Add this. Natural look? Add this. Colourful eye? This is your answer ;)

NYX POWDER BLUSH - DUSTY ROSE 

This blush is so pretty and flattering for my complexion, it hardly has any shimmer and doesn't require a lot of layering. I have fair skin & this blush / color gives you a nice warm, sun kissed glow that will last all day!


MILANI BAKED BLUSH - LUMINOSO

This blush is sooo gorgeous, but it's NOT a dupe for nars orgasm. Milani mineral baked blush in luminoso is the real dupe. It is a corally-orange baked blush with tons of shimmer/glitter, although the glitter doesn't look to obvious when buffed into the skin. It is a perfect summer colour that adds a nice pop on your cheeks.

CINEMA: ANT-MAN

Wednesday, July 29, 2015

Before I start to share my thoughts about Ant-Man, I want to apologise (again!) my posts are going to be really late this month :( I know I'm so behind of these but life happens. As you guys know, I'm in the middle of working on my undergraduate thesis and it's stressing me out! Even think about it, I want to puke already :((

Between my busyness and the temptation of going on vacation with my family, I managed to go to theatre with my sisters and my Mom. We weren't sure what to watch. As big fans of Marvel movies, we all have same doubt about this movie. 

First, because none of us read the comic, we clearly don't know the story, not even a small part of it. Second, we once read some people judged this movie (before the movie came out) and they were pretty bad. They said, "This movie is going to be bad... bla...bla...bla..." and from those opinions, none seemed excited about this movie and I was like, "Why? What's wrong?" and my sister said, "They want Black Widow movie instead of Ant-Man".

Well, fair enough. Everyone adores Black Widow and wants her movie. Obviously ;) 

But well, we never judge something from people's opinions. We bought the tickets and waited for about 20 minutes before we entered the 4DX-3D theatre. 

HELLO, ANT-MAN or should I call, ANTmazing? ;)






50 RANDOM FACTS ABOUT ME!

Tuesday, June 30, 2015

To end my review in the month of June, I thought I'd share my first 50 random facts about me ;)

BOOKSHELF: THE 5TH WAVE

Sunday, June 28, 2015


The 5th Wave is an AWESOME sci-fi read!  

I’ve always been interested in aliens, and who isn’t? It’s scary to imagine contact with other another species, especially one that might be inimical. There are million theories about what will happen and what they’ll want. But, I think that if there are aliens out there, Rick Yancey’s vision may not be so far from the truth. Everything is logical and explained, which makes it all the more terrifying!



I wish I read this book SOONER! 
The plot is brilliant! Perfectly paced and really smart. It alternates between suspense, action and character development. You never know what’s going to happen next and are continually blown away by each new expansion. It gets inside your head in a paranoia inducing way. Reading the 5th Wave is a little like watching a lion chase it’s prey. You want to look and you don’t. You want to keep reading because you are hooked but don’t because you’re afraid something bad will happen to a character you like.

VANITY: LET'S GET NUDE!

Saturday, June 27, 2015

As I get older, I realise that my fashion style, makeup and nail polish are change. I used to love super bright colour like shocking pink or metallic nail polishes but now, I prefer to use basic and classic colour such as nude colour.

I'm not a big fan of pale nail polish because my skin is so pale so I need something to add some colour but now, my nail polish stash barely touched. I prefer to use classic french manicure or O.P.I tickle my france-y, or going with classic red but then I get bored and it finally came to decision to try out nude colour. 

I found this beautiful girl, Revlon Nail Enamel in Elegant. This is such a beautiful nude colour but what makes it even more beautiful is, it doesn't make my skin look paler but fresh and healthy.




The formula is thicker than I thought it would be. I only use two coats and the colour is already pop, to make it shinier, I use the top coat. I think this is the perfect shade for people with pale skin like I do. And also, it applies very easy! 

One thing that I don't really like is it dry longer than other Revlon's nail polish. But it doesn't matter, because for me, to apply nail polish we need to have enough time to achieve perfect result. My tips, to make nail polish dry faster, soak your fingers into cold water for about 3 or 4 minutes long. Not only faster but also, it prevent your nail polish chip.

CINEMA: SAN ANDREAS

Friday, June 26, 2015

I don't have any high hopes for such a disaster movie firstly because some of them are have no sense and so illogical. Secondly, the plot is always guessable. So, the reason why I watch this movie because it is available at 4DX-3D cinema at Blitzmegaplex. It should be good, right? 



Needless to say, it is surprisingly good! 

More to say, let me explain ;) 

PS: this post maybe contains some spoilers. If you haven't watch the movie, feel free to leave. I know everyone hates spoilers. Ciao!

CINEMA: JURRASIC WORLD

Wednesday, June 24, 2015

Grew up with parents who love movies, Jurassic Park franchise was a part of my childhood things. Until now, we still have VCDs and Laser Discs, those are still safe in our movie collection shelf. I was so familiar with dinosaurs and even have the miniatures which now belongs to my nephew. 

When I heard about the newest movie from the franchise, I was more than excited! I watched the first teaser trailer year ago (yes, what a freaking teaser!) and totally knew that this movie will be in my 2015 movie list.



Stepping into a cinema to watch Jurassic World is like stepping into an amusement park, full of excitement yet anxiety! 

Here are thoughts that I had while I finally sat on 4DX-3D cinema to enjoy the ride to Jurassic World ;) 

MY LIFETIME EXPERIENCE STORY: #1 - TEACHING

Tuesday, June 02, 2015

to end my May posts, I wanna share with all of you beautiful people one of my best lifetime experience. 

Sejak Februari 2015, untuk memenuhi salah satu mata kuliah di semester akhir dan juga memenuhi persyaratan sidang skripsi, aku dan teman-teman satu angkatan menjalani PPL atau Progam Pengalaman Lapangan atau singkatnya, mulai mengajar di sekolah-sekolah. 

I was lucky enough to be back to my old high school, where I can meet my teachers and feel free to recall my high school memories. 

Mengajar atau menjadi guru sama sekali bukan salah satu cita-citaku sejak kecil. Long-short story, I ended up here. Semalam sebelum mulai mengajar or PPL day 1, aku takut setengah mati! Gila, takutnya bukan main. 

VANITY: 5 MINUTES DAY TIME MAKEUP ROUTINE

Whenever I'm late, I always grab these 5 magic products to save my day. The products below are in my opinion quiet good and stay almost 12 hours without giving me oily shiny look during the day. 




  • Concealer: Revlon Colorstay Concealer
I use this concealer to cover dark circles under my eyes and the redness that I have. This product is surprisingly good. It is very similar to Maybelline Fit Me Concealer but the formula is lighter so I think it's perfect if you don't have much skin problem. Note: use the shade that really close to your natural skin tone or at least 1 shade lighter than your skin. Mine is 02 Light.

  • Powder Foundation: Revlon Two Way Powder Foundation 
My life saver! This compact powder is definitely my holy grail face powder! I have no idea what they put in here but the formula is such an amazing thing I've ever tried. I've used this powder foundation for half year and so far, I don't have any problem with it. It gives a light coverage and also gives you natural fresh looking face. Note: use the shade that really close to your natural skin colour to get perfect coverage. Mine is 01 Ivory

  • Mascara: Benefit They're Real Mascara
Don't pass on mascara! It can make you look much more wake up and makes your eyes bigger and POP! If there's any makeup that I can't live without, it is mascara. Call me mascara freak because I am. Note: don't forget to curl your lashes first and add a generous amount of the products to make your lashes ticker and longer.

  • Blusher: Silkygirl Shimmer Duo Blusher
For someone who has pretty much pale skin, blush is a mandatory. For everyday use, I like to use something that really soft and light tone like this blush. This is a local product and I think pretty good for such a cheap product. Note: I'm not sure if this product still available at the counter or drugstore, I got this blusher 1,5 years ago. 

  • Lipgloss: Make Over Liquid Lip Colour
Personally, I don't really like super bright lip colour for day time but I need something to make my face fresher and happier (I look like a sick person because I really pale), I choose to use lipgloss which is Make Over Liquid Lip Color in Fructis Peach, the colour is so soft and fresh looking!

CINEMA: TV SHOW OBSESSIONS

This month, I'm not going to talk about movie because, firstly, I don't watch any movies. Surprise? Yes, you should be because I'm! It's quiet odd for me as a person who claimed as a movie lover. This month of May, I don't have any intention or mood to watch any movies and I don't know why. Secondly, it's boring to talk about movie all the time, right? So, in this post (and yes, I'm fully aware that my may posts are coming up pretty late than usual) I'm gonna talk about TV Shows. 

I have a lot of strange addictions to movie and tv show. I guess because I love watching! And it is obvious to everyone around me and people on the internet. 

  • TV Show 


Talking about tv shows (reality show, talk show, etc), I can say that I'm a huge fan of The Ellen Degeneres Show!! This show is always talkative, communicative, and interesting to watch! Ellen is a truly beautiful person inside and outside. She has this specialty to talk to people in every way, either it is very serious or spill smart jokes! 

The show is pretty much different from other shows I've ever watch. It invites interesting people like celebrities, heroes, or just people who are famous in internet. What I love the most about this show is it always show different side of people, like who really they are. And also, this show inspires people to do the goods. It doesn't show any cheap gossips or rumours.

  • TV Movie 


I like watching tv movies at Lifetime channel. Well, I know they are mostly super super cheesy and easy to guess but hey! We're here talking about good tv movies. 
Some of my favourite tv movies from Lifetime are: 

  1. Dollangager series : Flowers in the Attic, Petals on the Wind, If There Be Thorns, Seeds of Yesterday 
  2. Dead on Campus 
  3. Killing Daddy 
  4. A wife's nightmare 

  • TV Series 

I watch too many tv series! I watch almost every TV series on earth. But don't blame me, my parents and my sister are also enjoy with tv series. So we're basically love watching. 

Some of tv series that I still crazy over are: 
  1. Pretty Little Liars - I know some people stop watching because they got bored to find out who the hell is A but I don't. For me, finding A is one of my life goals. Now, we all know that there's  someone who can be a big A, Charles and I'm dying to know what his motive is!
  2. Supernatural - beside I'd love to see Dean's charming and slay character, I also weirdly enjoy this series with all demons and things gone wrong.
  3. Game of Thrones - I'm all about this kingdom y'all! 
  4. The Flash - can't say I like this series yet, I'm on episode 2
  5. iZombie - woo hoo you go, Rose McIver! She rocks the platinum hair!
  6. Bates Motel - Norman! I don't usually watch twisted family but since Bates Motel (and Dollangager series), I do. 
  7. American Horror Story - can't wait for new season with Lady Gaga on it!!!!
  8. New Girl - this series is getting funnier and more complicated but I really like it!

Also, I'm looking forward for Scream Queens. I watched the trailer and it seems pretty interesting, well sorority is always interesting, right?

BOOKSHELF: MAY HAUL!

I have to be honest with you... I haven't done reading any book, not even one. The teaching practice and my undergraduate thesis completely taken my time and attention. 

but, it isn't me if I go to the mall and not even checking out the bookstore. So, I thought I'd share some of new books that I bought in between April and May. 



  1. Anna and the French Kiss - Stephanie Perkins (I bought it online because it wasn't available in any bookstore in my city. Good point is, I got it for 30% off from books & beyond. Such a good deal!)
  2. In a Blue Moon - Ilana Tan 
  3. Lolita - Vladimir Nabokov
  4. The Throne of Fire - Rick Riordan
  5. Wedding Night - Sophie Kinsela 

I also bought Nylon, Cover Girl and Cosmopolitan but magazines are not for reviews LOL!

Currently, I'm reading Anna and the French Kiss because it's on my April wish list and I've been waiting for so long for this book. I promise, I'll try to finish this book and make a review next month!
