I'm gonna be blunt. I don't like dolls. I think they're useless. Even as a little girl back then I've never been too excited about dolls. Sure, I played Barbie. Sure, I collected some, but I didn't bring them to sleep. I've tried once sleeping with a girly doll and its hair just entered my nose in the morning and since then I never ever slept with any more dolls. They took the space in my bed :s

I also remembered it was my sister who always begged my parents for limited editions Barbie dolls for her birthdays or when she got an A or something. And then when we went to Kidz Station (for Indos out there maybe you knew this store?) and she just looked at those limited edition Barbie dolls and said, "I want this, this, and this so bad." And I was like, "Uhuh."

So on my birthdays, or any other special-occasion-days when people are "required" to give you something as gifts, I just hoped people won't give me dolls. Please. Just don't. Because they're gonna end up untouched in the corner of a box somewhere in my house. I'd rather receive a fashion garment. Clothes, make up, (or money ;)), things that I can actually wear and use.

I think two of my friends knows me well enough not to give me a doll and they bought me a shirt and a blazer. I don't really care which brand are they from as long as they are my style :)

Shirt - Forever 21, a gift from friends
Blazer and boots - Zara
Pants - Topshop
Bag - Cupcake
Necklace - Green Petal
Shawl - Cotton Ink
Sherlock Holmes cap - Sherlock Holmes Museum

One of my favorite caps/hats/hair accessories. The caps are on both sides which makes it interesting and the wool tweed fabric have this vintage vibe on it. PLUS, the sweet tied-bow on top. AND, the whole Sherlock Holmes feeling is so British making it even more cute and classy at the same time. This cap/hat is just lovable.

One of the experiences not to be missed when visiting the UK is to watch a football match, live. I didn't do it in my first year here but finally got the chance to do so last December. My friend got a very friendly-with-the-pocket-price for the ticket and tadaaa I was in the stadium feeling the match atmosphere. I definitely want to do it again, and if am lucky enough, I want to get my hands on Manchester United VS Liverpool match's ticket. Because I heard the tickets are so damn expensive (around 200£ which could score me a pair of Ferragamo flats if I add a little more to the nominal--you see this is the difference between guys and girls, maybe girls would rather buy a pair of shoes than a ticket to a football match but for most guys, definitely sport sport sport! Okay we're talking about this some other time) AND really hard to get.

The teams that I watched for my first watching-a-live-football-match experience were Chelsea VS F.C. Nordsjælland. My friends and I wore blue to support Chelsea, obviously. And what a surprise (not), Chelsea won 6 to 1. What a shame for the Danish team :( Better luck next time?

I'm no big fan of football or anything but honestly, seeing the solidarity of the supporters and how fond they are of football was just amazing. The ambiance in the stadium was really cool. Even though I didn't know the Chelsea's anthem, I enjoyed it when it was sang every time this team scored a goal. And they just shouted these kinds of chants, you know like when in the basketball competition there was like, "Defense! Defense!"................ I forgot this one. Ahahahaha. But it was memorable and fun. So yeah, pay a visit for a match if you have more time to be spent in this country :)

You know how art people works best at night when the wolves are howling and the street is empty? Well, not that dramatic, but yes, most of art people are working when everyone else is sleeping. At least that's true for me. And I don't know if it's the caffeine effect or it's my mood, but I just feel this excitement to write as well (probably writers also writes at night most of the time, no?). And I just have to let it all out. I'm in the middle of doing my homework and stuff, and I minimize my Adobe Photoshop, and open Blogger instead. How "efficient" is that. All I know is, I usually get active at 10pm up till dawn (sometimes morning) to work on stuff I need to do. And the next day Imma be like a zombie who doesn't concentrate on her classes and think about sleep.

My father always reminds me to sleep early, not past midnight, but I always, always didn't do what he said. I feel awful. I want to, dad, I really do, but I procrastinated too much resulting this guilt feeling of not working and directly go to sleep. So I pay it off by sleep less and work instead.

You remember this chart?

It's true that you've gotta pick two, unless you're really, really, really good with time management... which is sort of the field I need to improve on D;

Sweater - H&M
Blazer and boots - Zara
Pants - Forever 21
Bag - Mulberry Alexa
Hat - Unbranded

Brighton Pier

One of the destinations that my friends and I visited last winter holiday. Lovely place and food if it weren't disturbed by the ugly weather. We fought with the wind and rain, therefore we didn't get to enjoy fully the whole city, we just moved from one restaurant to another. Nevertheless, it was still an amazing day, because it wasn't where you spend your time in, it was who did you spend it with ;) (see, I can be poetic sometimes)

Shirt and leggings - Unbranded
Jacket - Mango
Shawl - H&M
Drop-crotch shorts - VOU by Gena Diguci
Boots - Vivienne Westwood x Melissa
Bag - Cupcake

This was the jacket I wrote about. You see, it was so hard to find a good bubble jacket, I thank God I bought this one a few years ago, never thought it would come in handy during winter season. Even this one I think still makes me look like a balloon had exploded in the sky. But hey, that's what a bubble jacket did to you. They made you look hoooyooogeee D; but sadly a bubble jacket was essential, especially in windy, wintry moment like when I visited Brighton. I'm still trying to find another great bubble jacket to keep me warm (and another reason to shop ;))

And the drop-crotch shorts, oh my. I never thought it would match easily with many things from my wardrobe, but it did, and I'm glad I bought it. My friend said I looked like a big baby with a diaper but his words just went in from my right ear and swoooshh...left right through my left ear. I couldn't careless. I love these shorts. I'll keep wearing it.

14 Hours

The amount of sleep I had last night. What a great one hahaha... I'm such a pig.

Top - Danjyo Hiyoji
Skorts - Forever 21
Bag - Prada Saffiano
Shoes - Office

These were when I was in Seoul last summer holiday, taken in Hanok Village and Insadong. I kind of love Seoul with its rich culture and modernized city. They have quite a lot of areas to look at and each area was beautiful in its own way, in its own shops way, if you get what I mean. Shopping in Seoul was like "I wanted to get them ALL, like, like, ALL of them!" Seriously, if you were in a shop, for example, you must've picked one section to look at because that was your favorite one, and because you've seen the other sections and you were disappointed. Not in this city. Almost everything attracted my eyes.

The top that I wore was from one of my favorite local Indonesian brands, Danjyo Hiyoji. This circular patterned top was one of my favorites in my wardrobe too. It didn't flatter my body quite well because of its unique shape and cut but I still love the creativity poured into it. The shoes were from Office that I bought the day before my flight back to Indonesia and I think I've been wanting a teal/turquoise flats for a long time and because this one was similar to oxford shoes which by far my most favorite shoe model, they were in my hands then on my feet. I know the electric colour didn't quite match the pastel tones on the upper side, but I was fine with this clish-clashing sort of combination to make the pastels didn't look really boring. I wore these hurtful flats for my holiday. They killed my feet, okay, but I still love them.
