The First Starbucks Reserve™ in Surabaya!

Hola everyone! I'm coming with a good news for you all, especially for coffee addicts! Maybe some of you already knew that Starbucks just opened their 1st Starbucks Reserve™ in Surabaya! :D
Not literally at new place, because it's still located inside Galaxy Mall. Yes, they just revamped their old store in GM with new concept, STARBUCKS RESERVE™!

The opening event of Starbucks Reserve™ was held at 12 March 2015, and I was one of their invitee :) Aside of invited their loyal customers, Starbucks also invited a number of bloggers in Surabaya. Anyway, I'm wondering if actually Starbucks had sent invitation e-mail to all their registered members (RSVP was needed) or not, because some of my friends didn't receive the notification e-mail, while I actually also received the notification e-mail as well. Or maybe it's because they didn't subscribe the newsletter? Hmm.. Perhaps.

Starbucks Reserve in Surabaya

I came earlier and they didn't allow invitee to come inside before 6 PM. Alright, I'll wait here then :D
As a invited blogger, I always try my best to come on time or earlier to any events. Because it's better come earlier than late ;)

The Face Shop Smile Foot Peeling [review]

안녕하세요! Hello guys!
I admit that feet are body parts that mostly get least attention from me -_- I got used to defend myself over the reason why I neglect my feet, is due to my hectic activity and I simply have no time to go salon and doing pedicure *LOL. So I looked for a foot product that suitable for lazy busy woman like me. Have you heard about foot peeling product? Yes, a product that designed as foot mask that could "strip off" your hard skin :p I've wanted to try this kind of product since months ago and finally I could tried it! I was curious about this foot peeling XD Does this foot peeling really works?

Halo semua! Aku mengakui kalau kakiku adalah bagian tubuhku yang paling ngga aku perhatikan -_- Lha kenapa kok jarang kuperhatikan? Soalnya aku sibuk dan ngga ada waktu untuk ke salon dan pedikur XDD #ngeles. Jadii aku cari-cari produk apa yang cocok untuk cewe males sibuk sepertiku. Apakah kalian pernah mendengar yang namanya produk peeling untuk kaki? Iya, yang kumaksudkan adalah produk yang didesain sebagai masker kaki tapi punya kemampuan untuk "menguliti" kulit pecah-pecah dan kapalan kita. Aku udah penasaran dan kepengen banget coba produk macam gini XD Kira-kira ngefek di aku ngga ya?

Well, let's see together! I've prepared before-after photos for this experiment ^.^

Heart to Heart 1: Another Year for Me

Hello everyone! I decided to make one more category on my blog! :)
Yes it's "Heart to Heart" category. I know it may sounds strange, but I don't care! Hehe.
On this category, I'll try my best to express myself in English.. because I hardly write diary in English XD It's quite difficult to me to express myself in second language.. because, I'm too lazy to construct grammars and such. LOL.

Hopefully I can post this "Heart to Heart" section at least once a month! Aside of improving my English, I also wanna be closer to my readers ^.^ Kindly leave some suggestions about interesting topics please :D

Anyway, I just turned into 25 few days ago.. X"D
And I feel so old!
LOL at my weird nose. The lighting was so terrible! >__<

It feels so surreal for me.. I was a little girl few days ago and I am a woman now!
I'm grateful for my life and I can't thank more for God's love and blessings :')

Face Recipe Triple Glam Shadow & Lip Color Nursing Lipstick [review]

Hello everyone! On this beautiful day, I'd like to share my thoughts about Japanese makeup products that I tried recently ^.^ I guess some of you don't familiar enough with FACE RECIPE brand, do you? So did I hehe. This was also my first time hearing a Japanese Makeup Brand named Face Recipe :D Special thanks to Copia ID for sending me these products for review purpose.

Face Recipe Triple Glam Shadow Review, Face Recipe Lip Color Nursing Review, Japanese Makeup Brand Face Recipe, Japanese Cosmetic Brand Face Recipe

Few weeks ago when COPIA contacted me, I was hoping to get any colored-lipstick but red. The reasons why I tend to avoid red lipstick because I always think that red lipstick won't be suitable on me. Red lipstick may makes me look older,  leave stains on my teeth and I doubt I can pull off red lipstick ._. LOL. That's why I always choose "safe" colors like pink, coral or nude (and because I love those kinds of colors so much, hehe). Believe or not maybe I will only wear red lipstick 1-2 times in a year :p :p

Let's see what are colors that I got for this eyeshadow and lipstick..

Miracle Lashregro - Eyelash Growth Serum [review]

Hi everyone! I'm really sorry there was some problems on my blog domain's setting yesterday :( It's stressing me enough! But finally it has fixed and now you can access this blog again *phew*.
Ok, let's back to topic! You guys probably wondering what product is this :D Yes, you're right. This product belongs to Miracle Aesthetic Clinic. FYI, Miracle also carries their own personal skin care brand ;) Last September I won an award as Miracle's Best Beauty Partner (3rd place) and I won bunch of Miracle products as my prize ^.^ You may read the report HERE.

Halo semua! Maaf banget bagi kalian yang ga bisa buka blog ku kemarin, ada sedikit masalah di setting domain ku jadinya ga bisa dibuka :( Bener-bener bikin stres. Tapi untunglah udah dibenerin semuanya jadi bisa dibuka lagi *fiuh*.
Baiklah, balik ke topik! Mungkin kalian penasaran ini produk apaan sih? Yup, dugaan kalian benar. Produk ini adalah produk dari Klinik kecantikan Miracle itu lho. Bagi kalian yang belum tau, Miracle juga punya merk perawatan wajah berlabel brand mereka sekarang ;) September tahun lalu aku menang sebagai Miracle's Best Beauty Partner (juara 3) dan aku mendapat beberapa produk Miracle sebagai hadiah ^.^

Among those products that gifted to me, the most interesting product (for me) was this Miracle Lashregro. Who doesn't wants long and thick eyelashes without any eyelash extension? :3 That's clearly not me. Hehe. Without hesitation, I tried this eyelash essence (or eyelash serum) continuously for around 4 months. Now I'm ready to provide my truthful opinion about this product :)

Diantara produk-produk tersebut, yang paling menarik perhatianku adalah Miracle Lashregro. Siapa sih yang ngga kepengen punya bulu mata panjang dan tebal tanpa eyelash extension? Tentu saja aku juga kepengen dong. Hehe. Jadi tanpa ragu-ragu, aku cobain juga serum bulu mata ini secara berkelanjutan selama 3-4 bulan. Dan sekarang aku siap menulis opini terjujurku tentang produk ini :)

Packaging
/ kemasan /

So far Miracle products have very simple design and their packaging are dominated with white color. Maybe Miracle want to leave simple impression to their customers? Oh I think white color is quite correlated with medical world :p LOL

Sejauh ini semua produk Miracle memiliki desain yang sangat sederhana dan kemasannya didominasi warna putih. Mungkin Miracle mau meninggalkan kesan kalau produk Miracle itu sederhana? Oh menurutku warna putih cukup nyamung lah ya dengan dunia kedokteran :p Hahaha

SHARP Plasmacluster untuk Rambut Indah dan Sehat

Hello everyone! Siapa nih di sini yang ngga bisa lepas dari pemakaian hair dryer setiap habis keramas? :) Kebetulan aku bukan orang yang sangat tergantung pada hair dryer sih, karena sedari kecil aku terbiasa mengeringkannya secara alami. Namun aku mengakui kalau akhir-akhir cukup bergantung pada hair dryer, terutama kalau aku keramas di pagi hari dan butuh rambut dalam keadaan yang kering dan rapi sebelum berangkat kerja. Yang bikin aku risih kalau membiarkan rambutku kering secara alami itu karena rambutku akan megar banget kayak singa, dan bikin aku ngga pede keluar rumah dengan keadaan rambut seperti itu :|

SHARP Plasmacluster, Solusi untuk rambut megar kayak singa

Kalau ngga ada waktu untuk ngeringin rambut pake hair dryer, biasa option kedua adalah menyisir rambut sambil diangin-anginkan di depan kipas angin. Tapi ternyata semakin sering rambut disisir, rambut bukannya malah rapi tapi malah akan berdiri-berdiri lho -_- Karena tanpa disadari ternyata gesekan yang terjadi antara sisir dan rambut akan menyebabkan listrik statis dan helaian rambut yang pendek-pendek akan berdiri secara natural.

Hello guys! Finally I could managed some time to finished this postponed review XD
This post was supposed to be up last January, but I had not chance (and mood) to continue it, sorry for that hehe. With help from my fellow blogger friend, Ce Kathy, I was able to get these two palettes in such a great deal! If I'm not mistaken, each palette costed around IDR 125,000-140,000 or $12-14 *I totally forget* :D Actually I wanted to get more, but my pocket money didn't allow me, LOL. :p

Sleek i-Divine Rio Rio, Sleek i-Divine Ultra Mattes V1 Brights Palette review

The Sleek palettes that I purchased are i-Divine Palette Rio Rio (Limited Edition) and Ultra Matte V1. Believe or not, they're my first Sleek palettes ever. Since I don't wear eyeshadows that often, two new palettes were enough (at the moment) :p :p
