Oh So Sexy Menswear Inspired ft. Zalora*
The picture may only have an apple tart but trust me, there were macaroons (s, as in plural) and chocolate cake involved.

Hi there, how are you today? I'm pretty good, but I can't say the same for my wallet tho. Hahaha
I did some damage yesterday. I went shopping and late lunch date with a lot of dessert with my best friend.

Talking about shopping... One of my tip to not go crazy when going out is first, EAT because what ever it is you're buying when you're hungry you have hungry eyes that not only wants to eat everything but also wants to buy everything. Second, make sure to know what you NEED, go to your wardrobe and see what key essential that you're missing to complete your looks. And third,  BROWSE the store's website to know what they have, and take INSPIRATIONS from instagram, tumblr and pinterest.
...Okay, I'm gonna keep it real, those tips works but you just can't tame yourself when Charlotte Tilburry is out with a new lip pencil and you want to get it right? so even though it cannot guarantee anything, it's worth trying :) It's all back to you and how you control your wants.

So some of the things in my wishlist were menswear inspired; a leather backpack, a pair of boots, a steel watch and an oversize striped shirt.
After surfing the mall for a good couple of hours I can't seem to find the exact item that I look for and ended up going home with the things I want but wasn't on my to buy list that day... teehee

...When all else fails, the trusty online shopping is super dependable and always there 24/7. Your next best bestfriend!
So after I'm done with my night routine and changed in my lounge wear, I started hunting for the things I couldn't find in the mall. My eyes wandered on Zalora's site. Being one of the most popular one stop online shopping on the internet land, Zalora have a million of choices. And my eyes was drawn in to the Swiss Army's watches on Zalora The sleek, simple but chic design won me over and they're absolutely going on my wishlist! The best part is its fast deliery, who wouldn't want that?!

A Touch of Red, Yayasan Jantung Indonesia for Jakarta Fashion Week #JFW15

A charity was held in the spirit of promoting the importance of avoiding and overcome heart disease. This charity is dedicated for the operation of children with congenital heart disease, help the unfortunate and expression of appreciation to the donors.
And what better ways than combining good deeds with fashion? This year Yayasan Jantung Indonesia presented a fashion show with Indonesia's well-known designer, Denny Wirawan at the Jakarta Fashion Week last November.

Along with the "Go Red for Women" or "Beware Women" campaign, was chosen "Mamita, Spanish, Embroidery" as the theme.
A lot of meaning was generated from the title itself including; Mamita is mother in spanish, and Mamita as a starring in a film called Manolete that was played by Penelope Cruz. Mamita in that film is a mistress of Manolete, a matador who lived in 1917-1947. When Manolete was dying because he gored by bull, his last wish was to meet Mamita but unfortunately she could only met him through red roses that was sprinkled on his cemetary.

This campaign is an international movement for the sake of raising more awareness about heart disease and remind women to be more concerned to maintain a healthy heart. Nowadays, heart and blood vessel disease are two of  major causes of death of women in the world. 

Meanwhile during the press conference, Susan Bacthiar, the ambasador of Yayasan Jantung Indonesia, shared her knowledge about how this era women wants to have the same lifestyle as the men. Such as, consuming fast food, smoking, and drinking alcohol which has a higher risk for women. 
Susan also said, that there is a higher level of stress with women who has both family and a career as their priority. When handling both household and a job, there is a higher chance of getting heart and blood vessel disease. 
Sadly, a lot of women are underestimating the problems because they still think men are more dominant of getting heart disease.

The event was attended by Indonesia's public figure; Titiek Puspa, Maudy Koesnaedy, and Ruth Sahanaya and opened by singer, Nina Tamam.  The socialite started the show by walking on the catwalk wearing some of Denny Wirawan's Mamita creation. Among the socialites are; Wanda Ponika, jewelery entrepreneur, Anadita Makes, director of Passionnee Bread & Pastry, Rosaline Stella Lie, director of PT Savillas Consultants Indonesia and Dinna Satar, businesswomen.

My mom is a single parent, she works and take care of the family at the same time. I love her so much, my heart breaks when I see her get sick or even not feeling well. Thus, I always want to give her the best. The best health care, vitamin, and help her reduce her stress at home. She's the strongest woman, I know and she is, for me, the epitome of a phenomenal women.

Now, I want to spread the word of this campaign to you, so you can tell your mom, sister, grand mother, aunt, girlfriend, daughter, neighbor, friends, and all the women out there. Let's help each other, and every women towards a healthier lifestyle.

Dance With Athaya #1: THIS IS THE PINK PRINT

Hey guys,

2014 is coming to an end and I want to do things that I've always wanted to do on my blog. One of them is.... creating a music series. Whoop whoop!!

It was beauty series last month and this month, another new series is up... it's called DanceWithAthaya. This series is named after one of my soundcloud playlist, "feel my beat and dance with me". It was too long, so I made it short and since I like to dance, it just makes more sense to combine the two meanings.

In this series, I'll be talking about new music, old music, the songs, the artists, and music related news.
I may not know much, but I'm the kind of person that cannot be separated from my earphone. I have to have music, if possible, 24/7. Even lately, I've been finding myself falling asleep to my soundcloud playlists!
Anyway, so I hope you guys are excited as I am because, music is just an essential thing in my life. I JUST LOVE MUSIC. Good music, of course!
