Monday Blues... Not!

Hiii! How's everyone's doing?
I think today is one of those rare Mondays where we WON'T be rolling our eyes and say to ourselves, "Ughhh it's Monday? Again?! I can't do this every week!!!"

YES, because today is the day where all muslims celebrate their Hari Raya happily, and non-muslims can enjoy our day off–plus Jakarta's empty streets! xD

So, what are you planning to do today?

Jess and I will probably just lazing around at home, playing with Bolu heheh.. But maybe we'll go to the mall with our family too, since our mom has been nagging us about having a family day out lol.

Option #3 is going to Rudy's (my bff) house, catching up on things with some other friends too!

Well, whatever your plan is, I hope you have a greaaatttt time! :D

What I Wore: Twenty3 Elena Top | Vivilli Blue Coat | Bershka White Flatforms

To all my Muslim friends, wishing you a happy Eid-Al-Fitr, mohon maaf lahir dan batin. :)

Olive Brown Hair at Salon Vim | Jess' New Hair Color

Just had my hair colored and luxuriously treated by the team at Salon Vim, Singapore.
Obligatory before-after shot. Bye bye, black roots!

Hello, VIP room!

I'm ready! Oh, wait. My thighs look GIGANTIC here. Chakaman.

Yeah……. Angle management (and knowing how to sit properly without squeezing your thighs) rules!! Alright, I'm ready!!! Bring it on! Yeah!! *overexcited*

WIthout further ado, John and Mary started coloring my hair. I wanted more exciting color and John was also game, but I'm afraid one of my potential hair sponsor wouldn't approve, so in the end I opted for my regular color… which I don't really know the name (sorry to those who asked and about to ask) so John gave me 'Olive Brown'~~~! (ノ≧▽≦)*:・゚

 Love that they got me this warm water. I was having my period so warm water really helps with the cramps. 

Got plastic-wrapped so the color will absorb better(?)

Meanwhile, mom and bro got me this lumpia-alike snack which tasted so good on top and got super oily on the bottom. So I bit the tops and gave the bottoms to my bro instead ahahaha!

After rinsing, it's time for  PREMIUM TREATMENT 
See those four colorful bottles up there? They're all mixed together into the taller bottle and they're there to nourish and strengthen my hair, protect its color and make it shine(\()/)*:・゚
I ultra super duper mega LOVE this treatment because not only the process was relaxing for both my body and my mind, it also gave GREAT RESULT! You'll see! ;)

Mary's applying the super treatment to my hair!

← applied VS not yet applied 

 Like that's not enough, they also gave me a Hair Mask Treatment after rinsing off the first one! I feel loved. (˘̩̩ᴗ˘̩̩ƪ) As you might already know, frequent hair coloring, bleaching, styling are kinda damaging to the hair itself, so good treatment is much needed. That's why I pay a lot of attention to hair treatment options as much as I love styling my hair!

 Hair drying at last ^^v

 I don't know why it looks so red here… But anyway, LOOK AT HOW SHINY AND HEALTHY IT IS!!!!!!!! The premium treatment sure was AWESOMESAUCE! Couldn't stop touching my hair~~~

 Hair styling by John. :)

 Lol love these two pictures of us!

Looks lighter here. I LOVE my Olive Brown hair! :D :D
The whole process from discussing what I want, color, treatment, to styling took four. freaking. hours! Four good hours, of course! At the beginning of the session, John asked me whether I'm in a hurry or not and I said no. Thus begin my long, fruitful hair journey. O(ˆˆ)o

What I wore: GOWIGASA Army Yankee Cropped Top, Acid Wash Shredded Denim Shorts

Anyway, I don't know why my hair color changes on many different lightings (yes, even before this color session). Like, just up there it looked red, light ash brown, dark brown… Now down here it looks pinkish light brown?  ^^;;;
Dunno lah, most important thing is that I LOVE IT! I love my hair color(s)! ;D ;D

Thank you so much, John and Salon Vim! Can't wait to see you guys again!

Okay, that's all for today~ Thank you for visiting and see you guys on my next post! ˆ)づ♡

Color Me Pastel

I was browsing through my computer and came across these forgotten snaps which were supposed to be posted on my blog almost a year ago, lol. I'm such a good blogger. *pats self on the back*

Anyway, this is one of the outfits I wore when I went to Japan last October.
Here's a short (candid) video of me walking down the busy street of Shibuya (recorded by Jess):

What I Wore: GOWIGASA Pastel Popsicle Knit Sweater and Pencil Skirt | Forever21 Mint Purse | White Olga Deandri Shoes

There's still a LOT of photos from our Japan trip that were neglected, like the ones in Fujiko F. Fujio (Doraemon) Museum, Disneyland and DisneySea, Robot Restaurant. I hope we can edit them asap and share them with you guys! Love you! x
