Dip The Brush And Start Painting

 Just recently I've learned to be okay with myself without wearing makeup. I think it was a special someone telling me that I didn't need it. I started taking care of my skin and realized I didn't need as much as I thought I did.  ― Vanessa Hudgens

can't believe it, 2012 has soon come to an end but I'm so grateful for the wonderful year it has been in every way, happy new year everyone, grab your brushes and let's fill 2013 with awesomeness!

Once Upon A Time: Esther Lin Project

The prospects of attending a special event or occasion never fail to excite us, girls. These are the nights worth dreaming for- of careful planning and envisioning the perfect ensemble, head to toe. These are our chances to star in our fairy tales. On these nights, we dress to kill. Paint this picture in your head, one we are all too familiar with: as you step out of the horse carriage, your dress clings rightfully, its train trailing behind so obediently, making its way through the entranced crowd.

Setting out with that same dream tucked in her heart, Esther Lin proclaims her passion to make our fairy tale nights come true. Now available for you...

One of my latest projects, Esther Lin, a branding of young talented Indonesian fashion designer. Esther Lin is commited to providing the right style with an elegant taste of couture collection.

The Lady Who Wear Black

Actually, I've been so bored with those yellow-toned pictures spreading in my facebook homepage and everywhere. So, I decided to took this picture in black and white. I always love black and white picture, it gives a real sense of a classic moment and its timelessness. Not only in pictures, black and white are also my favourite color as well. Why?

"This too shall pass..."

It's relieving when you got Blackberry broadcast message and it was great messages, not jus random advertising and promotions, and I want to share it with  you, guys. Maybe you have already knew this proverb but I want to share it anyway :p

One day Solomon decided to humble Benaiah ben Yehoyada, his most trusted minister. 
He said to him, "Benaiah, there is a certain ring that I want you to bring to me. I wish to wear it for Sukkot which gives you six months to find it." 

"If it exists anywhere on earth, your majesty," replied Benaiah, "I will find it and bring it to you, but what makes the ring so special?"

"It has magic powers," answered the king. "If a happy man looks at it, he becomes sad, and if a sad man looks at it, he becomes happy." Solomon knew that no such ring existed in the world, but he wished to give his minister a little taste of humility.

Spring passed and then summer, and still Benaiah had no idea where he could find the ring. On the night before Sukkot, he decided to take a walk in one of he poorest quarters of Jerusalem. He passed by a merchant who had begun to set out the day's wares on a shabby carpet. "Have you by any chance heard of a magic ring that makes the happy wearer forget his joy and the broken-hearted wearer forget his sorrows?" asked Benaiah.

He watched the grandfather take a plain gold ring from his carpet and engrave something on it. When Benaiah read the words on the ring, his face broke out in a wide smile. That night the entire city welcomed in the holiday of Sukkot with great festivity. "Well, my friend," said Solomon, "have you found what I sent you after?" All the ministers laughed and Solomon himself smiled.

To everyone's surprise, Benaiah held up a small gold ring and declared, "Here it is, your majesty!" As soon as Solomon read the inscription, the smile vanished from his face. The jeweler had written three Hebrew letters on the gold band: _gimel, zayin, yud_, which began the words "_Gam zeh ya'avor_" -- "This too shall pass."

At that moment Solomon realized that all his wisdom and fabulous wealth and tremendous power were but fleeting things, for one day he would be nothing but dust.

Proverbs 3:5 NIV
"Trust in the LORD with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding"

No matter what situation you are in, every emotion you currently feel is only temporary, and new events in your life will eventually come on and change those feelings.

Remember that everything will eventually be okay, just lean on His arms...

We'll Always Have Summer

It's been two weeks since I went back to Shanghai. Even though it's autumn already, but I still feel like it's summer except the humidity that has dropped, as well as the temperatureMaybe its because the atmosphere lingers in my wardrobe or whatever. Or perhaps its the book that I've been reading. Here's one of my favorite parts of the book that I must share:
"There are moments in every girl's life that are bigger than we know at the time.  When you look back, you say, that was one of those life-chanigng, fork-in-the-road moments and I didn't even see it coming.  I had no idea. And then there are the moments that you know are big.  That whatever you do next, there will be an impact.  Your life could go one of two directions. Do or die." (E-galley page 300)

This is what I had done in my summer vacation when I was back in my hometown. I did several things, reading good books, hanging out with my cousins and also making flower crown for this photoshoot that I got from Green Wedding Shoes.

Sunshine Breeze

During my summer holiday, I came back to my hometown and I have been 3 weeks here in Surabaya, but I didn't feel like I'm in a real vacation. I have so many projects to be done and I had to practice my Chinese, so I might feel the heat of the sun in the next week. Yeay, I'm so excited!

And for those who enjoy outdoor activities, don't forget to put your sunblock and sun tanning lotion on, guys.

New Dior Ad: Nude Natalie

Oscar-winning actress Natalie Portman goes nude for Dior. She shows that less is definitely more in this campaign which was photographed by Mario Sorrenti to promote the new Diorskin Nude Skin-Glowing make up collection. Well, even though she's topless, they are still every bit as elegant and ladylike as you'd expect a Dior ad to be.

Actually I am not a makeup person at all but I do really love how she looks classy and elegant without too much make up, representing an ideal of natural, radiant beauty of the brand. Yeah our face is not a coloring book.
