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 They are beauty products originally made from coffee and I was informed that their products contain antioxidant, detoxifier, anti-inflammatory, and absolutely the strong scent of coffee.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! ❤

ESQA Lip Matte Liquid You Should Try

Hello! Since I wanted to try to post more than one blogpost in a week, I thought this week would be the right time to start with. I belive it is the third week of Ramadhan for all Muslims, so I would like to send all my prayers to those who are fasting. May you have courage and health to get through Ramadhan ❤

Soo, I was recently bumped into a local beauty brand from Indonesia named ESQA and I thought I had to share it with you because you really need to try it out too! I tried one of their makeups, the Lip Matte Liquid. Look at these two beautiful babies smiling from your screen,

Let’s see what we got here, I got two shades consist of Dusty Pink and Berry Kiss. The bold one and the nude one. Which one do you prefer? Let’s get started with the nude one.

Dusty Pink

In the first glance, I found this shade was totally as nude as the color of my lips. But as I slid the applicator on my lips, I felt thick and smooth textures crashed in bringing the soft color of pink.

The pigmentation is really good, and you only need one swipe of the deeper colors to get opaque coverage. It lasts quite longer for approximately 5 hours without heavy meals.

Berry Kiss

img_1768

And this is the bold one and also the best seller one, simply the color is dark purple yet not that dark. A bit lighter but in the perfect pantone of dark purple.

img_1771

This color has always been my favorite because it looks stand out and makes your teeth look whiter. For the pigmentation and the coverage itself are still the same as the Dusty Pink.

I started to love this product because it doesn’t accentuate any dryness or lines on lips. If you love matte lipsticks but want something comfortable and non-drying, these are totally made for you!

Therefore, I do recommend these for you. Hope it gives you more insights for your beauty preference, have a great weekend!

My Reaction After Eating Salted Egg for the FIRST TIME

Salted Egg. I don’t know why people are so addicted to this kind of food lately. Are they just going into trend or is it just really tasty?

But before going farther, I wanted to tell you that I loathe Salted Egg and over medium sunny side up that much.

But I strived my disgust and decided to give it a try in one of my favorite cafes, The People’s since I heard that their Salted Egg Chicken is one of their favorites.

Not only that, I suddenly had the urge to taste their Salted Beverage because I wanted it to be all or nothing but “Oh Gosh, what am I doing?”.

I ordered for Salted Caramel Chocolate. Now you can see how intrigued yet almost fearlessly disgusted I was with the Salted Food and Beverage. I was on my own and I thought I did not need to be that careful with my orders. So, go for it boss!

I got Sunny Side Up as requested though I could have got it scrambled. I wish I had the scrambled. However I finally got it on my table!

As I slowly opened up my mouth and let a spoon of Salted Egg Chicken slid into my mouth. Honestly. I think I started to love salted eggs. It tasted fine and I enjoyed it. I enjoyed the slightly runny yolk all over my bowl. It did not even smell like the odor of sulfur or something that will make you want to do something “you-know-what”. The taste is fine and it could keep me full for 5 hours without snacks. I prefer to have it with chili sauce instead of soy sauce to keep me survive and alive.

And here is the weird yet interesting one, Salted Caramel Chocolate. I just thought it was weird to have the adjective word “Salted” in the name of a beverage and why would they add caramel popcorns on top anyway? This is just really confusing. I took a sip and it did not even taste salty I guess however I still loved it. It tasted more like chocolate milkshake to me.

After having those meals sliding into my stomach through my intestines and having me-time for half of the day, I would say that Salted Egg is not that bad and I thought I would give it another try in another cafe. Any recommendations? and have you ever tasted Salted Egg before? If yes, tell me your experience in the comment box! 😀

Have a great weekend, guys!

7 Caption Personalities You Should Try on Instagram

Never have you ever feel flustered or even anxious to think about the perfect caption for your Instagram picture? Or maybe you are confused to decide what kind of personality you have for a caption on Instagram?

Worry No More!

I have tons of ideas to inspire your creativity in writing captions on Instagram and I am pretty sure you will be head over heels in love with them. Well, hopefully. However! There is only one thing to bear in mind that captions on Instagram are better relatable to the picture you upload. I have seen a lot of people posting pictures (e.g: selfie with duck face) but their caption says something opposite (e.g: broken heart quotes) –which I find it irritating.

You are a beautiful creature with a beautiful mind, I have always wanted to see that everyone is aware with that. Why sharing hatred and sorrow if you are still able to share happiness. Here are seven personalities that may inspire your writing proficiency on Instagram pictures:

1. The Poet

Who says poems are only for melancholic people? Not at all. If you have tons of vocabularies in your head, recognize those words from Shakespeare, or even have 3 or more language proficiencies, then poems might be good for you since I believe you can play with words. Sometimes I like to write poetic captions but I do not want my Instagram audience to interpret me as a melancholic blogger, thus I make fun of the poem in the end.

2. The Joker

Don’t take pictures too serious. It might have philosophy or metaphor or anything but seriously, chill. You only need to see every inch of the picture you have whether there is something to be mocked at or not. If there is, make fun of it and let your friends’ comments rolling on the box.

I swear my eyes were opened👀

3. The Forecaster

Remember that basic conversation you mostly have with a stranger? Something that talks about how hot or rainy the day is. Well you can put that to your caption. Go outside, take a picture and tell your followers how perplexed you are with the weather and be the forecaster of your own state of mind.

I have no idea whether this picture represents summer or winter or autumn or spring.

4. The Story Teller

Seriously, we mostly do not do things on purpose but somehow it happens because it happens. If you ever have those kind of moments, you can write them as caption and engage your followers’ attention about how weird your day has been.

took a long sip and unintentionally spent a hot cup of lattè in the cold rainy dusk☕️

5. The Stargazer

Cassiopeia, Canopus, Alnilam, Castor, and every single star or constellation you have ever heard. If you are that kind of person who likes to gaze at the moonlight and the starry skies in the middle of the night, pick one constellation and tell them how you feel about it. Or if you have a crush on someone, you may correlate it a little with the touch of metaphor.

It was dusk, too late for sunset, too early for stars

6. The Food Enthusiast

Food porns on Instagram, totally common! But that’s how it works. This is a phase where people let the foods chill because they are busy to take picture of it for 15 minutes. However, that’s the way it is. I usually give a caption about how tasty or bad the food is and/or even mock at my own hypocrisy.

when salad hits you hard🍀

7. The Reviewer

When you love something, you share. When you hate something, you share. Basically, you are either reviewing your own life or someone’s life. But in this case, I am going to show my reviewer attitude towards a cafe I visited. It depends on how informative you want yourself to be but please bear in mind that Social Media ethic does exist.

That’s all I can get for you, guys! I compiled those captions on my Instagram which I thought it could widen your inspiration to be more creative yet enticing to attract more engagement of your followers. Remember that what you write is what you are in people’s perspective from social media. Then spread the love instead of hatred and sorrow. Have a nice weekend, guys! 🙂

Is GlamGlow YouthMud Mask Worth the Price?

Self-Treatment has been one of the most crucial things that someone has to add in their weekend list. Why so? Because if you treat yourself right, self-pleasure will follow anyway.

Before heading to the main content regarding the GlamGlow Tinglexfoliate Treatment, I would like to share my interesting conversation I had with a guy friend of mine yesterday.

“I don’t like seeing girls in make-up, they look like clowns and honestly, it takes so high costs for their treatment. We, boys, only like girls who look properly good in dresses and that’s enough. What do they expect from us as guys?”

I only smiled and replied him by adding about self-pleasure. I believe we are all people have different perspective about wearing make-up. Especially me, as a woman, believes that wearing make-up and grooming is not only about dress to impress, I like to take myself in proper maintenance because I love myself. Imagine when we love something, we tend to take care of it because we avoid to get it damaged. And that simply happens to ourselves, we take care of ourselves by grooming and wearing make-up occasionally because we love ourselves. Therefore, I just wanted to change people’s mindset about women who like wearing make-up and dress properly, we do that because we care about ourselves.

Okay, so that’s enough for the opening statement, I guess shall we start with my first experience with GlamGlow?

GlamGlow has been a hype product in the beauty world. I was curious so I bought a set of GlamGlow from Sephora for around $65 with mud foam included.

Processed with VSCO with se3 preset

The texture of GlamGlow itself is definitely not like scrubs but mud. The mud itself has pretty strong minty scent which I found it appealing. As I applied a thin layer on my skin, just like its name “Tinglexfoliate Treatment”, I could feel it tingling yet burning on my face. I highly recommend you to not apply it around your eyes even your eye bags because your skin in that area will feel burnt than ever. I honestly found it uncomfortable on my face, I let it dry for almost 15 minutes.

Processed with VSCO with se3 preset

Actually the mud dries faster because it would dry already for approximately in 8 minutes. As it was completely dry, I barely could move my skin. Just don’t laugh or smile because your skin was being extracted and it would cause your skin wrinkled sooner. So, you better don’t.

I immediately washed my face gently. As I finished, I felt my skin tighter and smoother. The mud really did the great job in extracting the oil on my face. Overall, I loved this product though it kinda tortured me while applying it. I think I’ll be sticking to it.

Have you tried GlamGlow YouthMud? What do you think?

Sunday Outing with Pastel Culotte

Glad to be back on blogging again! I’m pretty sure you guys must be getting bored with the same old reason I always give.

Hectic schedule.

Sorry I had to mention it again but this is utterly something that I can’t get rid of. However, I have something new for you guys!

In the first week of college, I went to some places with my sister to spend the weekend. And also, looking for new contents for vlog!

Let’s go straight to the content, so I decided to wear pastel culotte that I found in some bazaar I attended when holiday. There are varies and I love each of them.

For the white outerwear, I got it from New Look whilst the black sweater inside, I got it somewhere in Central.


Culottes are best paired with pastel high heels! I got these light pink high heels from Nine West and a watch from Alba.

Culottes have been a hype these days. There are the short ones and even the long ones like I am wearing. However, culottes may also be paired with sneakers. It feels really comfy and honestly, it makes you look slimmer. So, who doesn’t love culottes?

Tell me what’s your favorite pair with culottes on the comment below. I’d love to hear what you say 🙂

How To Wear Heels With Casual Tops

Having high heels in the closet but not confident enough to wear them because afraid of looking too much?

If you have this anxiety then you are on the right page!

You might have seen a lot of OOTD ideas on fashion blogs to dress casually with heels. Well this time, I have another ideas to rock your heels in casual outfits without being afraid of looking too much which probably will inspire you more! 🙂


This is my favorite casual outfit when it’s combined with heels. I believe the top we are wearing in an outfit is the most important thing since it also represents who we are. I have the striped top by et cetera, bag by Kate Spade New York, black heels by Pull & Bear, silver watch for female by Alba, and black cat eye wear by Le Specs. 

Besides that, I also have sweater combined with high heels! since I’m a sweatshirt type of person but not most of the time. I’ve got sweater by Top Shop, green pastel bag by Moeibag, black heels by Nine West, watch and wallet by Fossil, and glasses by Owl.

As you have seen in the picture, there is a green pastel tote bag. Tote bag, sweater, then heels?! Yes. Wearing heels is the most powerful thing to increase the level of women’s fanciness to me. Therefore, instead of wearing sweatshirt with sneakers like usual, why not try high heels?

So, I think that’s all for two outfit ideas that may bring you inspiration to wear heels casually. Which one is your favorite outfit? Or maybe if you have another ideas regarding to wear heels casually, you may share your thoughts in the comment below. Look forward to hear more from you, have a great day! 🙂

Easy Homemade Cupcake Recipe

Semester break has influenced me to have a knack on cooking since I have no idea what to do besides managing two events, reading novels, listening to fifty shades music, and feeding rabbits. Boring? Not really but half of me said yes it really is.

It’s one week away to college and I decided to spend my last Monday afternoon of semester break in the kitchen making cupcakes with Mom! I found this easy recipe and I believe you can do this at home by preparing these super easy ingredients,

2 cups of flour
1/2 teaspoon of salt
2 teaspoons of baking powder
2 eggs
1 cup of milk
1/2 cup of melted butter
1 teaspoon of vanilla essence
3/4 cup of sugar

Step 1. Mix all the ingredients into a large bowl in high speed except the melted butter for 5 minutes. Then add the melted butter, stir it in slow speed.

Step 2. Preheat oven to 375f or 190c. Prepare the cupcake papers (oily in the inside is highly suggested to avoid sticky result) and put them in the cupcake moulds.

Step 3. Bake the cupcakes and get ready with the icing. Make sure you have these,

2 cups of butter
1 cup of sugar
1 cup of condensed milk
Crushed oreo
1 egg (set aside the yolk)

For the icing, you only need to stir it until soft and looks white. However for the icing, it’s up on your creativity. You may add M&Ms, chocolate chips, etc.

And this is how my cupcakes look like,

These sweet treats are such a good companion for reading. After seeing these, are you interested to make your own cupcakes? Let me know what you think on the comment box below and you may share the result on Instagram by tagging me 🙂

Summerbird (Bed and Brasserie): Was I Impressed?

Hello, Guys! Who likes to stroll around the city and look for new places? If you do, I have this one coming up for you!

Basically, this is the first post of “Odysseia” where I will start reviewing hidden gems in the cities or even countries I visit. Can I say yay to that for the very first post?

I was introduced by my friend to have a visit to this Bed and Brasserie located in Bandung, West Java, Indonesia. I was welcomed with vintagely cute interior. From that perspective, I might say that this place is better for youth.

The staffs are really nice and understanding which made me feel comfortable to stay longer for small talk with friends and photos indeed.


I ordered two coffees, a lattè and a cappuccino. I was expecting for some artsy foam on top but nope, just a cup of coffee. I didn’t order much since I was quite stuffed, I only ordered one mixed platter which has sausage, calamary, wedges, and onion rings in it. It tasted fine but a bit tasteless to me. More spices would be great.


SummerBird also has hotel in the upstairs with various rates. I didn’t stay but I loved to see the corridor with the vines which gave the homey look because they don’t have 20 rooms or above like hotels you always notice in general.

Processed with VSCO with lv01 preset
The tables for its cafe are not only downstairs but they are also available in upstairs along with the rooms. The vintage look of its cafe made me feel want to stay longer for another sip of coffee but unfortunately, the foods I ordered was fine but not outstanding.

To sum it up, here’s what I think about Summer Bird for my first impression.

Ambience (9 out of 10)
Food and Beverage (8 out of 10)
Service (9.5 out of 10)

Impression (8.8 out of 10)

Have you ever been here or interested enough to visit? Share what you think through the comment below. I will also do another reviews for Odysseia. I can’t wait to do it further! Thanks for reading ❤
