Summer Staycation Experience in Anvaya Beach Resort Bali

Happy Valentine’s Day!

How’s your day so far? Has anyone confessed anything to you? Have you received any chocolates and flowers? Has anyone kissed you? Has anyone sent a sweet text for you? Those little things we do in the Valentine’s Day have become something very usual yet also very traditional.

I am not so sure if people still celebrate Valentine’s Day since in my way of thinking, the whole culture of either finding or maintaining love has changed a lot. Couples in previous generations only had to communicate through letters (or possibly pigeon?) which took 48 hours to be delivered but they mostly had no significant problem with it whilst in this generation, when he has not replied the text within 3 hours we already have that mini anxiety attack because of that tiny read-and-delivered receipt. Well, the world has shifted really far because of the invention and development of technology. Okay, I think I have been pouring my thoughts about modern love too much.

However, speaking of love and Valentine’s Day, I would like to take you to my staycation experience with Anvaya Beach Resort Bali. I stayed there for 3 days and it felt like home already.


Let me welcome you to the balcony of my bedroom. Magnificent view with tiny private pool at front. Anvaya Beach Resort Bali actually has two sides for swimming pool. One near Kuta beach and this one right in front of your screen. This blogpost is not sponsored by Anvaya Beach Resort Bali thus I did not take many pictures in my bedroom and around the hotel because I enjoyed the vibes a little too much.


And here you are in the other side of the pool. You might notice I have been bringing this book everywhere, it is A Work in Progress by Connor Franta which you can find the review here.


I sat on grass under a tree, I truly loved the ambience there though the sunlight was utterly like a demon which burned my skin as you can see that on my wrist. Behind me was a view to Kuta Beach which you could be able to have a walk around Kuta for jet ski, bike, and temporary tattoos. As I described you these things, it made me want to go back there again.


Because I wouldn’t just sit and read, I had to have some snack too because I am always hungry. Well, who doesn’t like to eat? I ordered some nachos, melon juice, and a bottle of coke. The nachos was good but it would have been much better if they added some yogurt, mayo, or cream cheese.


And here I am behind these beautiful aesthetic trees. I really loved hanging out in this pool side because there were so many palm trees that I could post on my Instagram story all the time. They also had nice playlist of Bali traditional songs rather than Pop or RnB musics.

It was an honest review without any intervention of Anvaya Beach Resort Bali. I wrote this blogpost because I was satisfied with the service they gave me while staying in Bali. On a scale 1 to 10, I would give it 9. I don’t give the other one because of the nachos, haha! If you’d like to see more, you can check out my Bali vlog below.

However this resort really works well for those who want to have a little escape for self healing and self loving. I wish this blogpost will profoundly inspire you for your weekly preference. Happy Valentine’s Day!

I think I am going to write more and not only gonna post every weekend thus, stay tuned for more!

October Beatitude 2017

October has just passed. I recently turned to 20 and things are seemingly change in a great pace yet amazing if we see it closer.

Hmm. Too flowery, isn’t it? I guess that is enough for the flowery and wise words for opening. However, welcome November! A month that encourages us not to shave. I am not sure if it is for guys only or not but let’s make the most out of it precisely.

As usual, I am going to show you the things that I was fond of the most in October. Before anything else, I am really sorry for the late blogpost and missed last week’s blogpost. College and works have been colliding in my calendar, please help! However I surely will make it up for you.

The book that I have always wanted since it was first released. Weirdly I got the book of Connor Franta, Note to Self first before this though the first book of his is actually A Work in Progress. You can see how weird I am to read a book series backwards.

The photographs Connor captured inside have always been the best. The content itself always teaches how beautiful this life is that we need be grateful of. I got this book from a friend of mine as a birthday gift, best gift so far in my 20!

A mirror glasses with white border on top from New Look! I fell in love with it so much in the first time I saw it. I carried it everywhere while my vacation in Bali. More posts about my trip in Bali precisely! Just wait for it.

Rouge à Lèvres from Inglot! My favorite rouge color that I have always loved to stick around on daily basis. Although the color is dark for daily life but I love the sophisticated color it gives and how it matches with the color of my skin. The matte texture itself stays quite long around 5-6 hours without heavy meals. If you wanna know how much I love this Inglot, I even wore this lip matte color in the first time I met my boyfriend. Gladly he wasn’t freaked out to see me in that color. Hopefully.

“Treating you well, but I’m caught in the middle, I caught the edge of a knife and it hurts just a little…”

Remember this line? Yes! This is a song by Avicii featuring Rita Ora called Lonely Together. I once had a short piano cover of this song but I lost the footage thus sorry I could not share it with you guys. Haha!

How does it sound like? If you love it then I think we should hang out and sing it along together!

I think that’s all I have so far for October Beatitude 2017. I hope this weekend’s blogpost is delightful and insightful enough for you to read as your weekly preference. Have a great weekend everyone! Tell me your favorite things in October through the comment below💙


Local Beauty Brand from Bali for Coffee Enthusiast

Hello! It’s good to be finally back to another weekend because I have got something to show you, especially for those who are fond of coffee that much.

I recently received some products from local beauty brand in Bali, Kohvee Story. They are beauty products originally made from coffee and I was informed that their products contain antioxidant, detoxifier, anti-inflammatory, and absolutely the strong scent of coffee.

Honestly this is the first time for me to wear beauty products made from coffee so I thought it wouldn’t hurt to try one, would it?

Coffee Skin Moisturizer

Skin moisturizer has always been the first thing to satisfy my desire in maintaining my skin health. I have heard a lot that caffeine is good for skin, especially in protecting from UV radiation. The first time I applied this product and rubbed it all over my arms and legs, I fell in love with the strong coffee scent and how it saturated with the skin.

For the texture itself, I found it a bit oily and too fluid as I expected it more dense. However I love how my skin starts to smell like coffee and feels smoother after applying it. I use this product twice a day for better result.

Coffee Cleansing Oil

And this is my favorite one because it is a multifunction product where it can be used for face massage and makeup remover which I believe everyone should have this one especially for traveling because you can get two products with two different functions at once.

I usually massage my face with this cleansing oil with two pumps once per three days, it feels very satisfying for relaxation after a long day of school and work. The result on my face this far, it feels smoother and I just love how it soothes my skin that quick.

I think that’s all I have about Kohvee Story. Honestly I totally recommend their products, especially the coffee cleansing oil since that is my favorite one. Have you ever tried it before? If not, would you? Tell me what you think below and share your thoughts with the world!

Have a great weekend and I also would like to send my deepest regards to you who are going to celebrate the Eid Mubarak tomorrow, I hope you all have a great time with your family. Happy holiday! ❤
