Hello Beautiful People!! 

2014 is over! 

This year has been a really great year for me. I've been through ups and downs and those things made me. Seriously, I feel like who I am now is really different from who I am in last years. 
I've changed in good way. I eat healthier and also my health is slowly getting better and better. I read more books than last year. I got my first internship in one of the best International school in Indonesia. I'm happier than I've ever been before. 
But I'm not going to talk about me, don't worry ;) 
I'm going to talk about things that I think the best throughout this year. Not all the stuff here is released in 2014, but great stuff that I've been loving in entire year or new to me.

I must admit that I read the book 2 or 3 months before the movie released. When I know there'll be a new movie adapted from a novel and people been crazy about this book since 2 years ago, I feel the need to read it first the watch the movie later. So, here's my thoughts about both of book and movie :)

It's been ages since my last tea time post and I really miss talking about tea even though I don't have much new tea favorites but it's a little bit different from my last post - it doesn't mean that I'm not addicted to Passion Tea Lemonade anymore hello, I can't stop and I don't think I will ;) - but I did something for tea like I added some milk - vanilla or almond milk - when I usually do nothing on my tea, just a plain tea and no bag out. I like strong taste on my tea and I figured it out to not taking the bag out and leave it until you finish your tea.

Here's my favorites at the moment:

1. Lipton Vanilla Tea (+ milk)
2. Lipton Peppermint Tea
3. Twinings Four Red Fruits Tea
4. Twinings Passionfruit, Mango & Orange Tea 

Please please please let me know if you have any recommendations for another delicious tea! I'd love to try it. Have a good day <3

Having read the book and falling in love into it, I have a low expectation to the movie. You do know how my experience with TFIOS which is really really disappointing and makes me want to puke for 12 hours (I'm such a badass bitch but hey, I really hate that movie!). 

It is really disappointing and affect to my expectations to the other romance book to movie. So, I don't put any hope to be honest.

But I really love the soundtrack so much! Willamette Stone, Tom Odell, Ane Brun, and other great musicians in one album is too much to handle for me! I really love this soundtrack, more than TFIOS soundtrack - sorry for keep comparing ;)

Last friday, I watched this movie with my sister and honestly I am amazed. I read the books - and had high expectations for this movie - so I knew what will going on but I didn't know that the director, Francis Lawrence added some new things.

A friendly reminder that I may spoil a few or a lot of things about this movie. So, if you haven't watch the movie yet, don't do the 'read more' thing because you're going to hate me ;)

There is only one word to describe INTERSTELLAR and that is intense

Oh my God, a movie like no other. It's been around 3 hours since the movie ended and I am still reeling from it, desperately trying to hang on to the little shred of sanity I have left in me. I cried a lot. I gasped a lot. I can't even breathe well.


Sunday, November 09, 2014


I haven't watch the movie because it's not coming to my country yet. duh

I wish I could give this more than 5 stars. It is amazing. I have never been so moved by a book before. I sobbed like a baby 

There are two kinds of books, those that you finish reading and leave you with fleeting memories of the attractive hero, the silly heroine, and the overall storyline, or perhaps all you noted was the glaring plot holes, inconsistencies, ridiculousness or flat characters. At any rate, it’s a book that you read, either like or dislike, but no sooner than you have turned the last page, it is out of sight and out of mind. Then there is the other kind of book that will touch your heart, or awaken a lingering memory or a potential fear that will haunt your mind so that even long after you’ve fallen asleep, your unconscious self is still wading through the details. Your dreams will be fitful and when you finally awaken, you will find yourself tangled up in sheets with puffy, swollen eyes from tears that you shed when you weren’t even aware enough to know you were crying. 

If I Stay is the second one

You may have noticed that YA books are flooded, or in this case wrecked, with parental death, but this one takes a tiring theme and gives it a psychological twist, or two. For me, the most interesting part was not the issues central to the themes of life and death, but the characters' varied and enthusiastic love of music. Give this one to music lovers be it punk or orchestral, and young musicians.



Whenever I go, I always have my makeup bag with me. It is like the essentials for me after wallet and my phones. 

I'm not over bubbling in this post, so here's the inside of my makeup pouch: 

I got this cute pouch from local online store with pretty good price for a good quality. I really love the flowers and it has a soft material too. The best thing is the inside has softer material and hopefully can keep my makeup safe.

  1. Chapstick: I would never leave my house without lip balm or chapstick! If I left it at my house, I have two options: either is buy a new one or going back to my house. I have the dry lips and I think it's gross too. So moisture my lips is a must. Currently, I'm using Kiehl's Facial Fuel Moisturizing Lip Balm 
  2. Lip gloss: I'm not a huge fans of shine lips but on those special days I don't want to put any lipstick on my lips so I'll go with lip gloss. I've been carrying NYX Mega Shine Lip Gloss in Natural which is work really great for me. It's a nude shade for me but still working
  3. Lipstick: Yes. I bring two lipsticks with me on daily basis. Don't blame me, I have reasons. So, my go to lipstick is Revlon Colorburst Lip Butter in 001 Pink Truffle this product is amazing and I love it so much! It gives my lips natural color, almost similar to my natural lip color but also refreshing your look and also moisturizes your lips. It works on day or night and... I love it. I can't find the better word to describe how much I love this lipstick. I use this almost everyday, weird? Yes but I love it!! And for the second product, still in the same brand because Revlon has incredible lip products, I carry Revlon Colorburst Lipstick in 065 Rosy Nude don't get tricked by the name, this lipstick is not a nude color at all. It's pinkish -  reddish color and it really great for night look. On some days, I don't have much time to get home before I leave for another occasion so my magic trick is lipstick ;) 
  4. Compact Powder & it brush: I hate shine face - oily, greasy, ewww... that's really not working for me at all. It's not dewy but disgusting. That's why I always carry my Maybelline Clear Smooth Pressed Powder to avoid shine during the day. It really helps to refresh your face especially when you need to go somewhere else after long day activities.
  5. Concealer: I don't have many problems on my skin to be cover up but I do have dark circles under my eyes and that's never look good. Of course I cover it up before I leave the house, but I never understand, it always gone and I need to retouch (but I don't retouch if I don't need to go somewhere else). I hate retouch my face, especially when I still at campus because I don't think I need it. It's okay to show the world your flaws. Everyone has flaws. But I bring this Maybelline Age Rewind Dark Circles Eraser in Medium just in case I need to meet someone or people, or need to go somewhere. But you know me, I'm such a badass moody person. 
  6. Travalo: this little lady is a new addition to my makeup pouch. I got this from local online store and really happy with this thing. I've been looking for some ways to get it because my country doesn't sell this kind of stuff. I almost bought it on eBay but I found that shop first so it is easier for me to buy at online store. I fill my travalo with Victoria Secret Bombshells in Bloom and I've been using this perfume this past 3 months. I can't get over it.
  7. Mascara: 99 % in actuality I'm bare face and four eyes but I keep mascara just in case because you know girls... so, right now I'm having Benefit They're Real Mascara. It is amazing and works for my upper and lower lashes.
  8. Contacts & Eye drops: just in case. I'm pretty blind without my glasses or contacts on
  9. Small Mirror: girls need to have this in their pouch or bag. You don't want to have something stuck on your teeth and you don't know it and worse, your friends don't know how to say it to you. You better know it by yourself right? 
  10. Hand Cream & Hand Sanitizer: you know me guys... I would never leave my house without these two as well. In case you're wondering even thou I've talked about them billion times... my hand cream is L'occitane Almond Hand Cream and my sanitizer is Bath & Body Works in Japanese Cherry Blossom.

I finally finished writing this review!
It's a little bit late but yeah, why not? 

In my country, The Maze Runner came 2 days earlier than in US. I have no idea why but it really made me happy because I can't wait any longer! I already watch this movie for 4 times now but hey don't blame me, I enjoy watching movies!

As you all know, I really love the book and for me, it honestly beat the Hunger Games and Divergent series but still, I like them. I love reading and series is one of my favorites. 

Since the trailer came out, I aware that I shouldn't put so much expectations because based on previous book to movie, there's always things that really disappointing. Even thou still deep in my heart as a huge fan of fiction books, I really hope that this movie have less disappointment.

I was cleaning my bookshelves since it was really dusty and I haven't doing this for ages this is embarrassing then I found the very first thriller book I've ever have and read and enjoy and love it so much! 

Yes. I never read this kind of book but this was too tempting at the time when I found it on the bookstore. I read the summary and fell in love in one read! 

I have no idea why I haven't make the review about this book until now, I really don't know. This book is one of my favorite books in earlier 2013 even thou this book out in 2007 or 2008 ck ck very up to date Vera! 

So I pulled it out from the bookshelves and reread it. Seriously, it's been almost a year now I put it off on my shelves and rereading this book is like starting all over again. I gasp, scream and cry every time the cassette is 'played'. 

Anyway, I'm going to stop bubbling and start to share my 13 reasons why I love this book


Tuesday, September 16, 2014



It's been a long time since I posted my first current playlist tag and TODAY I feel the need to share my current playlist with all of you!

I've been find some new musics - regarding to my strange music choices - and I love it. This might a bit different from my usual playlist, but lately, I can't stop listening to this playlist!

I'm gonna stop bubbling and show you guys that playlist I've been talking about...

I love every time my nails get polished perfectly with the color that I've been loving at that time. As a moody person, my nail polish can describe it very well - not every time but mostly it is. 

I like how nail polish can gives the power color on your look and makes the look standing out even more. Since middle school, I never missed the part when I'm allowed to polish my nails - I'm muslim and I can't polish my nails everyday except when it comes to my period time - and since those days, I realized that I've spent half of my money for nail polish. But, hey, I don't care! I love nail polish soooooooo much!!! 

Here are some of my favorite nail polishes this year!

Sophie Kinsella has proven once again why she's one of the best writers in romance fiction. Amazing! I really wanted to know what was going to happen to Poppy and what was going on with Sam and his company.

Could not put this book down. ahhhh… If I was emotional I’d be crying at the near end of the book, But I wasn’t. So I didn’t. From the first few pages, I feel an instant connection with Poppy!


Monday, September 01, 2014



After a month or so putting off this book back to my bookshelves while I've been away from home for school program (it's so hard to read there because I'm so busy ugh!) I finally finished the second book from The Maze Runner series

I can't wait to share my thoughts about this book with all of you!

In actuality, I'm 99 % bare face and four eyes but I do like little change and this makeup look is my current favorite. 

I had so many family events, friends meet ups, and I found this makeup look matched with every single event. Oh! All of the makeup products are drugstore makeup so it's easy to get. I hope you enjoy this post as much as I do. 

So, here it is... 


Sunday, August 17, 2014



I wanna share my thoughts about this new product - well, for me - with all of you! 

Instead of wearing foundation, I prefer to wear BB Cream during the warmer months. BB cream is the perfect choice because it has a light weight and gives you a perfect amount for coverage and I just discovered this newest product - to me - from NYX and this product is amazing

It's been awhile since my last book review and I know it might be a bit late but whatever since the movie will be in theater this september, I think, why not I share the book review first. 

If you don't want to read any spoilers - because I might be spoil everything in this book review - feel free to close your tab and make sure to come back after you read or maybe after you watch the movie ;)

It's been awhile since my last post, I've been distracted by a bunch of family outings, meet up with my friends and stuffs! I swear that's the most tiring weeks in my life but it's really fun! 

I always have my handbag with me during those activities. This handbag is from Stradivarius and I love it! It's a simple black handbag with two pockets with a medium length strap. Believe me, I was really surprise how everything could fit in it. As I try to keep it simple, I still carry so many things.

PS: I try to keep it simple, I swear

I've been waiting for this perfume because Victoria's Secret instagram team kinda really smart to make people curious and finally, my curiosity got an answer. 

I went to Victoria's Secret store at Paris Van Java, Bandung to check whether it has been arrive or not and there she was! The beautiful glass bottle with a big flower on her head called Bombshells in Bloom. OH MY GOD. not only the packaging is really beautiful and girly, but also the smell of it is incredibly amazing! 

It's so floral - pink freesia and water lily with hint of red apple. It's sweet but it doesn't give you headache. It's so fresh and really sexy. The smell is so seductive and stay longer! Seriously, you guys, I tried the body mist while I'm in the middle of making decision, buy the eau de perfume or body mist - VS is pretty expensive and you guys now I have a bad habit of shopping. I sprayed the body mist on my right wrist and eau de perfume on my left. for like 10 to 15 minutes later, I decided to buy the perfume then went to the movie theater. 3 or 4 hours later, I smelled my right wrist and it still there! Can you imagine how longer the perfume will stay? 

This perfume is perfect for every season especially spring and summer. The smell gives your more confidence and makes you feel more beautiful ;) 


Wednesday, July 09, 2014



I love it smell and it taste! I love my perfect cup of tea. It’s how I like to begin my day, not to help me wake up, but rather I like to enjoy a tasteful cup of bliss first thing in the morning.

If a perfect cup of tea makes you smile and lets your heart indulge a little, then what could possibly be the harm?

Here are some of my favorite teas ;)

The book was kinda late came to my country and repeating history, the movie was also 2 weeks late :| 

Lucky me, I'm in the middle of KKN (Kuliah Kerja Nyata) and been away from home since last week so I just watched it yesterday. Even though this post kinda late - out of date - but I want to share! 

So, I spent a lot of time checking my watch while waiting for the theater door open. I've been waiting this movie since the first time I read the book! 

Keep reading if you want to know my thoughts about both of movie & book, or please feel to close your tab if you haven't watch the movie yet because this post maybe contains spoiler ;) 



Wednesday, June 25, 2014



It's been 4 years of waiting and this sequel didn't get me down at all! I really love animation movie, especially when it has unusual problem like this franchise. 

anyway, close your tab if you haven't watch because this post might be has so many spoilers ;)


Saturday, June 14, 2014



This is my second review for this weeks and that's pretty impressive for me, since I was really busy last months, so this is a payback.

22 JUMP STREET baby!!!!!! I'm so excited and couldn't help myself to wait for a week to make this review because you guys need to know how I feel about this hilarious movie! 

If you like the first movie, 21 Jump Street, then you definitely enjoyed the sequel as much as I do. Sony posted the official trailer like months ago and we had an expectation how this movie would be like and TA DA... they didn't disappointed you otherwise, they made you laugh until you felt your abdominal muscles tensed. This second movie way more hilarious than the first one! 


Feel free to close your tab if you haven't watch because I probably spoil things you don't want to know ;)

you guys know how much I love fiction, how much I love fairy tale, how much I love Disney's princesses

when I heard Disney is going to remake Sleeping Beauty, I was like... "After waiting for years they finally decided it!" 

Sleeping Beauty is one of my favorites (have I told you that I love Disney movies?) I have the 1959 version and almost all the Disney movies original version, I can't resist the temptation to watch them on the weekend while cuddling with my baby sister or all alone. Life is good.

anyway, since this movie is brand new and not everyone has watch it yet, so I want to remind you that this post may be contains spoilers and trust me you don't want to read this before watch the movie first. 

feel free to close the tab and come back after you watch it yourself ;)

Hi Sweethearts <3

I know this is kinda late to share may favorites but I had been so busy with tasks and final exams but finally... it's done! YAY *happy dance*
I wouldn't say this is my may favorites post, I prefer to say this is monthly favorites. So, let's dig into it...


Wednesday, June 04, 2014


Have you guys watched X-MEN: Days of Future Past
I bet you have but if you haven't feel free to close the tab because you're going to hate me with spoilers I wrote. Make sure come back when you have ;) 


Tuesday, May 06, 2014


I really enjoyed working on this review because man, I really love super hero movies and Spider Man is one of my favorites! 

I watched this movie on May, 1st - I know Spidey released on second day of May in USA - I have no idea why on my country this movie was released 2 days earlier. So, I guess, that's my luck ;) 

I  may be going to spoil some things you don't want to know, so, feel free to close the tab but make sure to come back after you watch!

I posted a selfie on instagram & tumblr and some anonymous asked me to do makeup tutorial for this look. I'm not confident enough to make a video tutorial but hopefully, this text post will helps you ;) 

no filter. I hate filters.
This look is basically almost my "on to go look" because it's very simple and not too much for me. I don't do my makeup every single day, well, in reality I'm 95 % bare face and four eyes, maybe only put lip gloss or mascara, but really, I don't do my eyebrows or do eye makeup very often.
I do my makeup when I have an event to attend, hanging out with friends or family, or... whenever I'm in a mood to take a selfie with makeup on. Yeah, you know... 


I watched Locke on last friday with my sister after I finished tutoring Kim Hyeong Soo, a Korean student who study Indonesian language on my campus. Actually, we got the tickets for free. My sister lucky enough to win a twitter quiz from Cinemags & Jive Movies. Who doesn't like free movie tickets anyway? 

After picked up the tickets at Cinemags Office, we headed to Blitzmegaplex (Paris Van Java) and I got really excited because I love Tom Hardy!!! and the fact that he played a one man show performance like Ryan Reynolds on Buried made me more excited. I think, being the single actor on a movie is really hard. Of course the movie maker added phone call or flash back, but, it's just an addendum.

When it comes to music, it relates to current mood. Well, at least, for me. I never start a day without my playlist. I change my playlist a lot, it usually contains new songs I've been loving currently or old songs - not too old - I always love back. Yeah you know, we always back to our favorites, right?

So, I've updated my playlist and I can't stop listening to it!! Mostly are new songs, others are not-too-old songs which I always love and back to it after 'break' for awhile. I hope this list can helps you to find out what song you're going to download or purchase ;)


Saturday, April 05, 2014


I watched this second movie for Captain America yesterday with my sister and we're excited because, we all do like superhero movie with that face, right? I love all Marvel's movie. Who doesn't? Despite their terrible CGI and 3D effect, and inequality in the distribution of duties / tasks / roles, whatever, on The Avengers, it still all about Iron Man thou. I think, this movie get any better than the others. 

This post may contains spoiler and for those who haven't watch this movie yet, feel free to close your tab. You don't wanna know the twist, any scene that I might be tell or even the ending, before you watch and enjoy it yourself.

I definitely enjoyed the book (I haven't read Insurgent and Allegiant) although some people said that this trilogy is a The Hunger Games wannabe and a bit Twilight romance (duh!), the revolt? yes I couldn't agree more, but I can say that I prefer Divergent because its stronger characters and their motivations than THG. Veronica Roth describes each character amazingly.


Wednesday, March 05, 2014



I know I'm not consistently write in this blog because I have a lot of things to do and they're drive me crazy. I hate it >:~(


I still wanna share at least one topic to all of you! It's perfume. I love perfume and the way it makes me confident and smell so good. I'm not the person who likes collecting many perfumes, I'm the one who loyal to some perfumes I like the most.
So here they are...

Hi guys <3

Last week I watched RoboCop with my Mum and sister and we really enjoyed the remake movie.
I feel like recall my childhood memories, my parents are movie lovers and they have tons of cool 80’s movies in LaserDisc. Don’t blame my addiction, look up, my parents started it! :))

I was a little bit disappointed but at the same time, I really glad that they bring it back!
The reason why it was disappointing for me because IT HAS NO REAL VILLAIN! Right? I expected much from this reboot but they gave me Murphy’s personal family matter which is TOO MUCH instead of sexy fight scene and the super villain. AND… too much shaky camera!

But I still love this movie for many reasons!
First, the special effects are spectacular! Yes, we’re talking about the brain and heart effect and all CGI. OH GOD!
Second, the costume design for the all-new RoboCop in a black tactical body actually looks quite nifty. The new RoboCop looks so sexy!
Third, the sound effects are pretty contemporary for me.
Fourth, the new Alex Murphy! So, I watched The Killing couple episodes but yeah, I don’t really like it. Reason why I watched The Killing was because people talked about Joel Kinnaman. I have no idea who he was until RoboCop happenedHe’s sexier than young Peter Weller (original movie, 1987). When the RoboCop helmet on and all we see is half of his face, uuuuh… I feel like seeing Batman in another mask :))
