Say 'Pretty'

Several days ago, I saw on my fb timeline, a lot of people shared the links of an article about 'don't call girls pretty' or 'don't call your daughter pretty'. Oh yeah, pretty much amount of people shared that. But still cannot be compared to the ones share the links related to president election.

Here's the link, for the one who wants to read it.

Now I want to express my disagreement to that article. 

Well, actually, I don't feel like I need to write this by only reading the article, but what makes me kinda furious is the comments of people who share that article. I don't know much about Lisa Bloom who is mentioned there, but how they choose the title really annoys me, and how they conclude, added by comments of people who share that on my fb timeline, makes my eyebrows frown, though it won't be visible because my brows are invisible. 

I always think that people tend to draw a conclusion that: pretty = dumb. They can easily judge girls who love to dress up, wear high heels, put fake eyelashes, take selfies, or something like that. So then, they encourage girls to not try to make themselves pretty. Uglier girls are, smarter they are. These people think they are not mainstream by not trying to be pretty. 

But I think some of those people are just jealous.

I always find question like this: "physical beauty, good personality, or smart brain?"

I am gonna answer that by, "all of them", because......why not?!

Why don't we just erase the border between personality, physical beauty, and brain?! We can build them up together. I swear I never find a single person whom I admire lacks one of those three. They all have them, and they put so much effort to build them, including beauty.

World will be so bitter if there's no one who respect a girl's effort who tries to look good physically. It's natural for every girls to try to look prettier, and guys too, of course. Though perhaps there's still one person among them who's too lazy to do that so he/she just curses and envies other people. Just let them be. Let them be down, I mean.

And for the article's title, I really cannot imagine I cannot call my future daughter pretty. My daughter will be the prettiest girl in the world, and I will say it to her hundreds millions billions times. And it won't decrease the quality of her brain nor her personality. She will have a good character: smart brain, great personality, and pretty face.

Say 'pretty' to everyone who has put efforts for being pretty. They do a lot to create pleasure for our eyes.

Decora...But Not Even Close

I've been following Tokyo Fashion since years ago, and I think I will never get tired of it. One of the style that be mentioned frequently is decora. This style is extremely fun, looks so cheerful and colorful. But for the ones who lack of sense of art & fashion, this style can be so disturbing to their eyes. LOL!


Got the pic from tokyofashion.com. That girl's style is called Rainbow Decora. Clear enough why it is called like that.

Note that decora is not about putting random things just to be seen rame. But decora girls, or boys, usually choose their accessories based on the color scheme. If it's pink, then they will wear all pink. If it's pastel, all must be in pastel colors. If it's rainbow, then all 7 colors are there in their bodies.

So I also would like to try this decora style, but I think I failed *bitter smile*. Not enough accessories to be called a decora girl. Though I actually didn't intend to create decora look from head to toe, only focusing on head, because I already knew it would not be satisfying. 

However, let me share my attempt of being decora here in my blog.


Mmmm...

Well, because mostly I talk about makeup, how about we focus on my makeup. Here's my eyemake, wearing rainbow colors from BH Cosmetics Take Me to Brazil eyeshadow palette.


I applied bright pink and blue eyeshadow on upper eyelid, while on my lower eyelid I use the gradation of green.

Final result (after putting fake eyelashes and some stickers) :



It's really fun trying to wear something that's not our usual style. Makes me wishing to wear a complete decora style and walk around Harajuku. Ahh..who doesn't want that.




If you pay attention, my hairpins are really cute; a spoon, a fork, and a knife. Hehee. Should I label this look 'taberu decora', 'ready to eat decora', 'dinner set decora'?

Birthday Post


It's June 15th! It's my birthday! Time really goes so fast. I'm getting older!!

Hmm..am I supposed to make wishes?

Okay, here I start!

I wanna live happily, having my own house and decorating it with my own style, stuffing everything I like in there. A koi pond is needed. I wanna buy lotsa cute things, some fashion items, and post many from-head-to-toe looks in my blog. I wanna travel a lot,  post about it here, maybe it mostly about the cuisine, their original cuisine, wanna taste them all. I wanna have enough money to have so many collections of anime merchandise. It'd be awesome if I have many nendoroids, and I like to try to switch all the heads on different bodies. And It'd be cool if I can watch so many concerts of my favorite singers/bands. No need to wait for their coming to my country, but I will catch them up at anywhere they're doing their concerts. I also support them by buying their albums, their official merchandises. For myself, I wanna try so many different hairstyles, different hair colors, changing it every months. It's important too to buy lotsa skincare, so my face will be flawless; extend my eyelashes, fix my nose; prevent wrinkles, and etc, and etc. 

Forgive me for not even wishing to set career or think about marriage. My age maybe increases, but my mind does the opposite. (Don't) help me!

L'Occitane Feito no Brasil

Brazil..Brazil..Brazil

That country is getting so much attention these days because of World Cup 2014 that will start...days from now *feel so excited*. No wonder if everything we meet will 'taste' like Brazil.

L'Occitane will launch their newest collection with Brazilian theme: L'Occitane Au Bresil. As the name has indicated, the product is made in Brazil. On May 28th, I was invited to the launching event to get know more about this product. Therefore, I will share about it in this post. But before that, let me take a selfie.


My sister, Nia, accompanied me on that day.

The event took place in Skye, Jakarta. That was my first time going there, and I must say that place is absolutely gorgeous and high-class.




Good sight feels incomplete. Of course must be a me there.


Let's take a peek of some creative decorations.





Fruit, yellow, blue, green, all vivid colors, those made me feel so fresh on that day. Added by the shows performed; Capoeira and Samba. Perfeito!  



Joyful music and dance feel so festive.

Let me give you foodgasm by showing these pictures below. They are all Brazilian food, taste so yummy, especially the cheese balls. Pardon me for calling it cheese balls. Totally forgot the real name.






Now let's talk about the product. L'Occitane launched three new series of L'Occitane Au Bresil: Vitoria Regia Day, Vitoria Regia Night, and Jenipapo. They are represented by the color green, dark blue, and yellow (a bit brownish) respectively.



Vitoria Regia, a giant water lily from Amazonia, becomes the inspiration of these two new series of L'Occitane. Vitoria Regia Day (Green) has scent of citrus combined with green apple. It would be perfect to start a fresh new day. While Vitoria Regia Night smells flowery which is very sophisticated and sensual for a night. This kind of scent is my most favorite. 

List of Vitoria Regia Day products:
-Eau de Cologne
-Day Flower Shower Gel
-Day Flower Body Lotion
-Day Flower Hand Cream
-Day Flower Vegetal Mid Soap

List of Vitoria Regia Night products:
-Eau de Cologne
-Night Flower Shower soap
-Night Flower Vegati Mid Soap



And, Jenipapo is a name of  fruit that grows in Cerrado. L'Occitane produces this series using Jenipapo as its ingredient, creating products for sun protection and moisturizer. Jenipapo also has fresh scent, smells fruity.

List of Jenipapo products:

-Protecting Body Oil SPH 15
-Protecting Body Jelly Milk SPF 20
-Lip Gloss SPF 25 
-Face Protection Veil SPF 30
-Shower Oil
-Body Lotion
-Perfumed Oil Roll-On

End of this post. Here's my OOTD picture, accompanied by tissue paper.



Abrigado, L'Occitane! Thanks for bringing the festivity of Brazil. Makes me can't wait for the World Cup 2014!

The Entertainer

Being born as a beauty
silky dark hair, pink lips are tiny.
Allurement is her destiny.
Education is her liberty.

She loves music, she loves poem
just like what she was taught in classroom.
Those Top people who come to her room
will be seduced by her fume.

Not yet, not yet

still few months more before her debut.

Seeing the other entertainer is a fate
there she is on a stage
beautiful mind, flawless face
has debuted years ago, and now be an ace.

"I want to be her,"
said the entertainer.
That was her goal set in the mind
yet another aim she wants to find.

Meeting a gardener is a fate
that does not seem to be a date
but too much love she pours to that.

Love is forbidden, remember?!
Cause she is the entertainer
meanwhile he is the gardener.
The paths they walk differ.

She has trapped in a garden that he creates
tempting roses, redden with lust and desire.
The gardener gives her some other lessons
red is also about outburst, rage of fire.

Now, the Tops are busy with war.
Everyone's trying to be a warrior.
Now, who needs an entertainer?

Her life is kind of twisted
in a world that is revolted.
Her goal is utterly destroyed
in the new aim they tried to be scored.

But she doesn't know the reason
except only because of the gardener's storyline.

Is it true they try to achieve justice?

Hatsune Miku Expo 2014 in Indonesia

Real excitement comes when you're finally able to step in a place when you can see all about your unreal idols everywhere. Hatsune Miku just came to Indonesia on May 28th and 29th 2014. She also performed in her concert in Cendrawasih Hall, JCC, even though I didn't watch her. I'm still new in the Vocaloid world. I have no idea about the songs she would perform. Honestly, I only know, mostly, creepy songs of Vocaloid. LOL! And I'm not a big fan of Miku, though I'm a BIG fan of Kagamine Len from Crypton, Gackpo from Internet co.ltd. and Oliver.

But, if there's next time, I would like to watch the concert. Definitely!

I went there on Thursday 29th, with my little sister, Alin. We both are Len's fans, and I think she knows more about Vocaloid songs than me.


The queue was crazy. Non-ticket holders needed to queue to enter the exhibition in order to prevent too much crowd inside. LOT of people lined up in front of Cendrawasih Hall entrance and the line ended near the parking area (in front of the Assembly Hall). But surprisingly, it didn't take a long time for us to finally come inside the building. 


I became overjoyed when seeing the lobby full of Vocaloid pics. First to see was the gallery. They displayed the fan-art of Vocaloids from Crypton: Miku, Len, Rin, Luka, Kaito, and Meiko.

I took a LOT of photos, almost every single art that displayed there. So here're the best I captured.





Maybe for the ones who are not familiar with Vocaloids. There are so many of them that come from different companies. Here are the casts of Miku Expo 2014. They are all from the same company named Crypton.

Hatsune Miku


Kagamine Rin


Kagamine Len (my favorite )


Megurine Luka


KAITO (my second favorite )


MEIKO


Well, I listed Len and then KAITO as my favorites, because indeed I'm more interested in masculine voices than feminine ones. Recently, I also like VY2 Yuuma since I heard his 'Hirari Hirari' cover. Geez, in the hand of an expert user, his voice is awesome and so expressive, so real to be said it's from a software.

Back to the expo.

Alin with the Kagamines

There was also a Miku gallery booth from Tokyo Otaku.


Next was History Wall of Hatsune Miku. They displayed many figures of the characters. But first display was the software.
 

 And then many kinds of Miku


Miku's Pullip Dolls


Kagamine Rin 'Meltdown' figure


Hatsune Miku 'World is Mine'


Some versions of Miku's figures from Good Smile Company



And........Nendoroid!

Ahh..I really wish to have one since I knew that Gackpo's nendoroid has a shiny eggplant that he can ride on it. LOL! Too bad there was no Gackpo. But still, all nendoroids are super cute.








The Nendoroid Petite. I like Kaito here. That sibling from 'Story of Evil' (Rin and Len) caught my attention too.


Next, we'd been introduced to Vocaloid as a software that can make your computer sings.


There's a tutorial too


Karent's booth, on which we can listen to some Vocaloid's songs.


Here's Alin listening to Len's song


The star of the day was, of course, Hatsune Miku. There was a life-size wing Miku figure. I thought I would be able to take a picture besides her, but I couldn't get close enough due to the divider. Didn't even dare to touch Miku.


We also could write a message to Miku and friends on this Piapro walls. Some messages are really funny, some are really creative. They are all good in drawing. See?!


I hope next time Miku and friends will come again to Indonesia and bring more Vocaloids with them, and not only from Crypton.

End of this post.
