Hair Secret

Ola hermosas!

So as I promised you, I'm gonna share some thing or two about my hair.

My hair pretty much ruined due to last massive bleaching process. My hairstylist bleached them like 3 or 4 times, and it starting to falling off. Pretty bad. So, think this post might be useful for you guys who've been through what I've been through lately. Hair-wise.

Since the strong chemical ruined my hair, I decided to soak myself with a full knowledge of how to treat yourself (not only hair, which further on I'm going to write also) with organic treatments. Yes, the keys to highlight here are (by) yourself, and organic.

1. Shampooing Your Hair
First thing, I used to shampoo my hair every-day. I have an oily scalp and it just annoyed me so much if I didn't shampoo every single day. But since my hair get dried, or fried to be exact, due to those bleaching and dyeing process, I shampoo every two days now. But here's the first tips and what I do everyday: shampoo + conditioner on 1 day, and only conditioner on the next day, then repeat.
[I'm using TRESemme Keratin Smooth Conditioner]

Actually, the more your hair get wet, the more colour gone from your hair strands. So, if possible, you can prolong the processes of shampooing your hair. But I just can't stand it, not to wash the hair everyday. So, here's the second tips, put a small amount of your hair dye (mine's Manic Panic) into your shampoo. Best way is to purchase Silver Shampoo, but since it's pretty hard to find , so I use that trick instead.

2. Organic Hair Treatment
Then the treatment, I smear my hair with Extra Virgin Olive Oil every 2 weeks. Olive Oil is one of my fave organic ingredients for hair&body treatment. It's excellent for dandruff, frizzy hair, add shines, and soften your strands. You can read the benefits fully HERE. What I do is, put enough Olive Oil on a metal bowl and heat it on boiling water. Just like melting a chocolate bar when you're making cake. Leave it to get colder for couple of minutes, and just smear that warm oil on your hair with gentle hand strokes until it soaked wet with oil. I usually wrap my head with shower cap and leave them for 1 to 2 hours. The longer actually the better. But I just wash and shampoo my head after 2 hours top.
[I'm using Filippo Berio Organic Extra Virgin Olive Oil]

Every once a month, I whisk one full egg and smear em on my hair. WARNING: this might leave your hair smells like omelet for 1 or 2 days! SECOND WARNING: if your hair's bleached and just as dry as mine, DO NOT leave the egg for more than 45 minutes. 30mins the best! It's because egg contains a lot of protein, and the more you leave your hair on egg mask, the more protein it will absorbs, and it will make your strands stiff as hell.

Ok, since I'm actually an organic-treatment sucker now, I do feel obliged to share this with you. :)
1. Lemon Face Mask
Buy a fresh lemon, put it on your cooler before using it. Cut it in the middle just like you wish to squish a juice out of it, and cut that half into half. So you have two circle cuts of lemons. Keep the whole half back on your cooler for next usage. Squish a bit with your thumb and index finger until the juice wet the whole surface, and smear your face with that. It might stings a bit, but you'll survive. Leave em on your face for 15 minutes and wash with water (warm of cold, your choice).

2. Egg White Face Mask
Separate the white and the yolk. Each will have different treatment to your skin. For acne and pore tightening treatment, use the white. As the yolk is more to moisturising and adding Vitamin A to your skin. I mostly use the white for pore tightening and anti-aging cleanser effects that smooths my skin (coz you know, I'm pretty old already. Turning 26 this very Saturday, so I need to treat my ageing process and do wrinkle prevention as soon as possible). I do this quite a lot, like 2 to 3 times a week with organic eggs (telur ayam kampung).

Well there're a whole lotta list for your organic hair&body treatments, but these what I do every week and is a GREAT GREAT GREAT investment of your time and (less) money. You do not need those expensive beauty and skin care shiznit. Just make a schedule and a stroll down the organic fruit and ingredients alley on the grocery store, you're all set.

Anyway, this is the outfit from the last day of INFARE III early June. I'm just so in love with the mesh top designed by my blogger fella Amelia Bunjamin for her label ApparelAfterDark.

Young The Giant

[ H&M Beanie - no brand Boyfriend Tee - PROMOD Chunky chain bracelet - JEFFREY CAMPBELL Freda Boots ]

Two giant boulders with two even bolder heels, well, couldn't think any other than this title, which is actually my current ADDICTION in my playlist since last two months. You guys HAVE TO check em out on sound cloud or youtube, they're all around actually, just type 'em name: YOUNG THE GIANT. Amazing amazing band. Love it to my bone.

Oh, here play one out! (ps: my all time jams, I Got, Strings, My Body)

So someone asked me days earlier if I ever go to a casino. I said no. Then he asked me what would I wear if I ever gonna go there. Well, not quite sure picturing myself in a formal getups in sexy pointy heels, so I said, think I'm gonna dress up like a getho girl with two men escorting me all around in suits. With two briefcases on each of them hands. So yeah, think I'm gonna dress up like a rich getho girl. Lol.

Well they say, going to casinos has always been popular, but nowadays it is much more accessible to younger people of all different walks of life. The great thing about going to casinos is that they are more than just places to gamble. You can often watch theatre or even ballet performances and they tend to have great restaurants within their complexes. As casino's are more accessible, especially on sites like JackpotCity slots games, the dress code in land casinos is more relaxed too, so you can generally wear whatever you want as long as it is smart/casual. Of course this can still be confusing because everyone translates smart/ casual as something different.

There's no need to wear an all-out evening dress, but some kind of stylish black dress id perfect such as a little black dress. Rather than going for something tight and short though, bear in mind that you must look classy or the casino might turn you away. Peplum dresses or shift dresses are both on trend and also classy and you can wear a fantastic pair of heels with a matching clutch to take the outfit up a notch.

Clothes to avoid are jeans unless they are very smart skinny jeans with heels, flip flops, trainers, anything that is ripped (even if it is ripped for fashion purposes) an anything too revealing. What is regarded as 'Too revealing' is left to your own discretion but remember that it would be very embarrassing to be turned away at the door so be safe with your clothing choice. Anything you would wear to a nightclub is probably too revealing-keep hemlines and neck lines modest and you should be fine.

If you are planning on taking part in the table games, it's worth considering dressing a bit more seriously such as a trouser suit or skirt suit, as any edge you can get over your opponents even if it is clothing could be the difference that means you win the game.

Happy Halloween From Lydia Deetz!

Happy Halloween guys!

To make this holiday merrier (although it's not even a holiday here in my country), I decided to do a costume outfit post inspired by my forever favorite movie from the 80s, Beetlejuice! ;D I loooove this character played by Winona Ryder as one of the main characters, Lydia Deetz. I just love her signature style of a strange Goth girl who feels isolated in the world. She loves writing poetry, photography, and keen on anything supernatural and paranormal. Lydia’s character is shown in the movie with deep black hair, long parted bangs, and brushy ponytail if she’s not wearing her black wide brim floppy hat. She also wears pale face makeup and peach eyeshadow around her eyelids, under her eyebrows and above her cheekbones. That’s practically what I did to pull off this Halloween outfit. ;)

I was actually inspired by Lydia's illustration (see again above) I got on tumblr. So I asked my bf to take a photo of this rather strange look just outside my front door. Since Lydia likes spider, so I wore this unique big spider ring and black machine ring from my lovely sponsor, BL!NG. They just released these two collections on store (Animal Instinct and Rock a'Rolla). You guys should drop by their store sometime! ;)

So, what's your Halloween costume guys? Let me know by sharing your link below at the comment box! ;)

Oh, and don't forget to say it three times! Beetlejuice, Beetlejuice, Beetlejuice!! :D

Until next post, toodles-doodles!

Lady Rock and Roll

Hi and hellow!

Wow, been a while. Again. I've been juggling a lot of things in my mind, and my hands, recently, and one of them was moving out and moving in to my new apartment. Yay! I'm super excited to decorating my new room- for that I might bring you into a grand tour to my room someday, once it's done. ;p

Apart from being busy bee, I actually have some announcement to make: I've been 'partnering' with my bestie and open up an Online Clothing Store, full of a highly curated and hand-picked selection of fashion clothing! ;D We named it LODELIS. It's actually both of our nick name be put together- Lode + Lis. To tell you the truth, it was really really hard to find a name that represent our personality and style for that online clothing store, but there it goes. :) I hope you don't mind to drop a click HERE, and hit the Like button. :)) I'd be much much appreciate that.

Sooo, I've been admiring the 80's grunge and rockin' style since forever. And as you know it, those particular style is climbing up to the top of the trend list as sooo many brands embracing the looks. Oh, and this is the first appearance to my ever favorite JC shoes. ;) Ordered it for the first time from Villains SF Bangkok, and arrived at my door just a week after I ordered. Def recommended for you who are living in Indonesia and wanted to buy Jeffrey Campbell shoes. :))

And actually, I downloaded several songs mentioned on that comments list and I created new playlist for my working anthem at office! ;p Also from previous post, I received lots of question about my nailart. Thank you so much for the kind compliments, and I would def post the DIY tutorial to make that nailart on your own on my future posts! Just wait and see.. ;D

PS: DIY series for Fall outfit ideas def comin up on next post! ;)
