My Favorite Beauty Webstores

What do you usually do in your free time?
Well, if you ask me, I will gladly say online shopping! 
Of course I have solid reasons behind that seemingly dangerous hobby of mine. Firstly, living in Jakarta (as the world has probably known) means ‘traffic jams 24/7’. I will definitely spend hours on the road if I decide to shop at the malls or department stores. Traffic is utterly problematic for people who live in Jakarta, and not everyone has the time for that everyday. 
Secondly, online shopping is more convenient and simple, I could use my time browsing the details of the wanted products or reading reviews instead of spending my energy on road rage. 
However, though I’ve shopped online a lot, I haven’t exactly relied fully on the usage of credit cards when shopping. And therefore, here’s some of my most favorite beauty web stores that enable us to pay using bank transfer, or better yet, using daily BCA or Mandiri transfer. 
SK-II Pitera Essence Set
Olay Regenerist Megasonic Specialist Cleanser
Maybelline Color Tattoo “Bold Gold” & “Bad to the Bronze”
Beauty Blender
Sara Happ Vanilla Bean Lip Scrub
SLEEK Eye Palette “Storm”

Ever since I’ve been posting on Instagram, many have asked me about the benefits of using SK-II FTE (Facial Treatment Essence). As I have mentioned everywhere, I used to have a real problematic skin condition, and now it’s just a history. Weird enough that a lot didn’t believe me when I told me that my facial skin has gone through a major breakout, that I had those teeny phase of wanting to cry every time I look at my face in the mirror. Trust me, it happened.

{Update 20/09/2016 -- to see my latest skincare routine please read here}

In 2011, stressful was an everyday thing to deal with. My skin, that’d never been that bad, suddenly was pimply and totally far from fair. I tried almost everything I could, including going to the most recommended doctor in Jakarta (including the queuing from around 5 in the morning). At first, in about 2-3 months, my skin got better; unfortunately it only lasted for half a year. And the stress returned yet again.


Every time I'm on interviews or just having chit chats with my friends, there are plenty of questions regarding how very, really, inspired I am, of Lady Gaga. Some closed friends find it weird, some others also mock Gaga's 'looniness' sometimes, there are other who thought Lady Gaga is so not me.

Guess this is the time to reveal my love and affections of her. The first time I hear one of her songs was in 2009. At first I found it weird, but it started to be interesting. And then I accidentally saw her music videos. "This woman is beyond crazy" was my first thought, no doubt. I then stumbled upon an article about her and in that article it said how back in school Gaga was one of the girls who got bullied by the kids around her, her ex boyfriend himself told her once that she will never succeed on her own, Gaga also is not the type of celebrity who spends nights out partying and getting drunk, she'd rather stay in, be in the studio, write songs and do a lot of brainstorming for her stage concepts and performances.
She really is one of a kind.

That reminds me how Ryan Tedder once write that "No one works harder than Lady Gaga. Nobody. She is unbelievable.", adding to that her personal trainer also added that Gaga never complained about the amount of hours she need to exercise to shape her body up and also stay in shape.

Behind those crazy costumes and acts on public, lies a great lady to look up to. That's an image of Lady Gaga in my opinion. She is, without doubt, a creative, talented person who doesn't go down easily by people's mockeries, she works for the sake of her passion, to appreciate her self, and I think her hard work deserves some thumbs up and to become other's motivation, myself included. Behind her craziness, I really think that not everybody could pull it off the way Gaga does, that goes to the amount of guts and and self expressions.

Lady Gaga is one of a successful people, and that's the reason why I'm very inspired by her.
