Bali lived up the dream and expectation,Bali was paradise.
Here's what I did in Bali for four days in 3 minutes visual experience.SHOOT by yours truly.
eS.Sential has launch its street wear collection bringing a casual with Monochrome hint but I can clearly see that they put comfort first. These collection reminded me of my high school days when I used to play b-ball and wore over-sized T-shirt and backpack. But I guess as time went by, my style also revolves, still boyish at some occasion but skirts and boots with a twist of tuck-ins will always be my eternal signature look.
The eS.Sential team also sent me this backpack that I absolutely love, not only that I am able to bring it along with me for my travel later, but for gym days, swimming days, and beach-perfect :)

It was a gloomy Friday morning when Caroline (from thebasicbabe) and I met up in the heart of Sydney, at Martin Place to be exact. It was a long-overdue meeting because the last time she saw me, my hair was long and dyed-brown. Catching up with a friend and after a coffee in my absolute best Clueless-themed outfit was a golden moment. I did not realize it was Clueles-alike before I saw the photo result and how I recognize my face looking at coffee like it was love at the first time x
What is a morning without coffee? I did not remember the last time I woke up not having coffee, the longest gap from the moment I woke up to the moment I grab my double espresso was probably 4 hours, or wise I'd have my sleepy-head roaming on the street not because I did not have enough sleep (well, sometimes I had shorter than 8-recommended-hours). This is an adult addiction in order to be able to communicate sanely, think better or just a fancy way to call it "a morning".
The love of coffee began in June 2015 when I worked at a cafe in CBD, I had to wake up at 5am every weekday morning to catch my commute then my co-worker would offer a cup of coffee of my request... that's when it began. I used to had two double-shot latte for the day, but it has gotten better since I did not have to wake up that early anymore.
What's your coffee? let's meet up for coffee someday somewhere. I will spare time for that. Comment down below xx
Enough with a self-made theory of fashion items coordination or how to take a selfie because clearly on 2017, I personally think that people has their own tastes of so called personal style and they clearly know which angle works the best on a selfie-cam or insta-story. (I love boomerang, too!)
Last night while exercising my thumb and pointing finger through 12,664 photos (including videos, screen shots, double-saved photos, quotes) on my phone, checking instagram back and forth, collecting all the information I needed to motivate myself enough on writing this article right now helped me figure out that ordinary people like myself tend to document our life-achievements, daily outfit, or food we ate, or simply heartwarming anniversary post (yes, I am talking about me!) and post it online because that's just why we are busy taking photos and videos everywhere for.
2017 is the millennials 'gram era. So much inspirations and breath-taking photos of the island that you never thought exist before and those sort of things inspire each and everyone of us to push the boundaries and chase experiences instead of talking about boys or the girl you dislike in the corner of the cafe. 2017 is the era of visual experiences. I have promised myself to save more for experiences. In the favour of my statement, I will begin 2017's travel series in Mid-march. I am happy and so excited to say that I will be kicking off the journey in Bali. SO EXCITED!

Impeccable start of the year, I would not type this whole paragraph explaining how tired I was in the early days of 2017. I truly wish you hustler had a good time entering this challenging new year, fresh start for imperfect landing in the last minute of 2016 nor a serious fresh start. Thus, this is the beginning of countable plans for two months ahead on my planner.
May I continue?
Let me start the first post of the year with something vintage and I swear I didn't steal any item from my mom's closet (I remember when I started my very first blog I would dragged that long-sleeves-black-velvet-dress, put it on and took couple photos in my room, or her office skirt that I still keep until now). I did not drag anything out this time, she sold her old clothes out to the clothes-collector lady who would come to houses and ask you if you'd sell your old clothes. I really wish I was old enough to understand fashion and treasure-keeper. (Blame it on the trend)
Long story short, the 90s are back. Streetstyle denim skirt and Camisole top might be some stores' best-seller. I adore Camisole. Single strap or you'd call it Spaghetti Strap that are made for fashion. Its silky material makes it even better. Camisole top does casual to formal events, goes along with suede material nor denim nor your mama's office skirt.
Let me tell you the story of this adorable Gucci-alike sandals,
I was scrolling through my instagram page one day and I saw this gucci-mid-heel-leather-loafers as I was dying to own one. As I speak to you, it still costs $1,215 (AUD) and your girl does not have any spare for a pair of Gucci-loafers. I never actually spend beyond $300 for any of my fashion items and yep, it's still beyond my capability :) (GUCCI SPONSOR ME PLEASE? LOL JOKES). So I head to Westfield on my lunch break and I always love Rubi Shoes. While I was trying on cute loafers, I found this sandal out of no-where (it also comes in silver) and I was sold. It has to be my favourite buy at the moment. (Instagram-flatlays-alert)
What do you think about this outfit? I'd love to know your thoughts.
