2013 has been a rollercoaster year for us.
We went through a bit of a rough patch business-wise at the beginning of the year, but thanks to our positive mindset and hard work, we could get on our feet again and had even more opportunities that we couldn’t even imagine! And one of them is… becoming friends with Stella Lee :)
Even though we are in the same field (blogging), we had never talked to each other, didn’t follow each other’s SNS, let alone meet up.
Then, one day, fate brought us together. *jeng jeng jeng*
Three of us were invited to Japan by METI (Ministry of Economy, Trade and Industry) as CoFesta ambassadors from Indonesia (read the whole story here).
We first saw her at the Soekarno Hatta airport when we were going to board the plane; she looked so tired in her grey hoodie that we were reluctant to say hi. We also thought she was this shy, quiet and reserved girl that didn't like to chat, lol. So we just spent our first flight together without any single hello, not even an eye contact! Luckily our seats were not side by side; can you imagine how awkward would that be?!
Anyway, we finally talked to each other after we've landed in Japan while waiting for another blogger (Beckii) to arrive. And after about 15 minutes of conversation, our prejudgment of her TOTALLY faded away!
She’s super friendly, talkative, loud, and straightforward! Haha, completely took us by surprise! But one thing that makes us really clicked besides the fact that *ahem* all three of us are earth signs (Capricorn, Taurus, Virgo), is that we share the same way of thinking about many aspects (business, friendship, etc)! And of course, our undying love for Japan haha..
Long story short, back in Jakarta we did our very first collaboration:
*`•.¸(¯`• CHRISTMAS COLLABORATION •´¯)¸.•´
It was actually an impromptu session, but fortunately everything went well (thanks to the talented photographer, Nara Pratama) and we had a LOT of fun!!
All right, enough talking, LET’S SEE PICTURES!
THE PILLOW FIGHT!
We hope we can do another collaboration with Stella in the future. On a trip if possible! xD
She’s a beauty expert and loves to share; you can learn a lot from her!
Ok, see you on our next post! Thanks for reading J
WE WISH YOU A VERY MERRY CHRISTMAS
AND HAPPY HOLIDAYS!! Take care, everyone!
