This December ☃️

This December... 
Miracles happened.

So much blessings just came before this year ends and so many miracles happened. 

It's December and Christmas is getting closer!πŸŽ„ The past month has been insane yet somehow include the best moments of this year, and this December makes me feel so grateful for every miracle that happened in my life. I don't even know what to say but the thing is, I thank God to the most high! He's so kind and I'm literally blown away by how attentive God is to what I need, even to the tiniest things.

Last time, I said that I want to grow up in every way that I can. I want to be the better me. And yes, God put me through learning phases and they were really helped me grow as a person :)

So many fun activities which I did with my friends these days (eventhough I've been so busy with so many things and having so many assignments due, not to mention the interior design final project πŸ™‚). I went to a very special event held by my interior fellas with my friends last week. It was so fun because we made friends with some of our juniors and we all dressed like 90s peeps! 
We were taking pictures and polaroids also πŸ•ΊπŸ»πŸ’œ

Growing Up

Hello, September! πŸ‚
Hello, fall semester! 
Hello, assignments! It's a pleased to meet you again! (well... not really haha)

Uni hasn't even started yet but I'm already excited because I miss my friends so much! Actually I don't feel like going back to Jakarta anytime soon but I have to because the class starts in a week :|
Wow time flies so fast. I didn't realise that this is my third year in uni. I've been thru plenty of ups and downs these past two years. 
All of the struggles. From crying because I didn't get what 'nirmana' is, making interior collage (which is pretty fun), drawing the whole scrapbook of eastern art history sampe tangan pegel-pegel, making my first stool ever⏤ fuchsia-rose stool, buying so much things for my interior design class assignment, printing those CAD files (thank you for making my wallet cry 😭), belum lagi kalo CAD nya error dan mesin print nya lagi gabisa, belum lagi rasa malesnya dan revisi dan deadline dan lack of sleep ooh-la-la! But still, God is so amazingly kind to me. He helped me so much :') and yea, that is life. I've learned so many things from these past two years. I'm enjoying the process and not regretting anything at all and I believe it will be worth it! :)
(+ a little throwback teehee)
1st Semester | Teori Dasar Seni Rupa assignment - Collage (one of my favourite assignment!)
2nd Semester | Eastern Art History scrapbook :|
2nd Semester | Interior Design I: Residential

1st Semester | Sense of Design - my first assignment ever.  (this is the one that made me 'crey crey' because at first I didn't get the point of this πŸ˜‚)
3rd Semester | Interior Design II - Retail (Fashion)

4th Semester | Interior Design III - Office (Developer)

I've been thinking about what to do in this semester lately. I know the upcoming semester is going to be a very hectic one but I really want to do so much things! I want to learn and learn many things. I want to make so many friends. I want to be a better me because I'm not good enough and most of all, I want to grow up, physically and mentally. I want to be grateful for all everything that God has given to me by trying to do my best in all. I'm not even close to perfect⏤ not at all, but I want to give the best in anything that I can and then let Him to do the rest ♡ 
“Whatever you do, work at it with all your heart, as though you were working for the Lord and not for people” - Colossians 3:23
I'm writing this as a 20-year-old human being. Not a teenager, not even an adult, but a young adult. Supposedly old enough to know what is right and what is wrong. I've been thinking so much stuff and telling all my worries to my mommy. My lovely mommy was giving me some advices that I'm no longer a kid and I have to be better, day by day. She said that I need to be more responsible for anything and I totally agreed! And one thing she said to me that the older I get, the more I grow in my relationship with God. Pray for everything. Whether it's small or big, whether I'm happy or sad or in doubt.

But again, I thank God for giving me this life. I thank God for helping me going thru these all. I thank God for the opportunities that He has given me to build myself in Him. 
God has been blessing me so much ♡


Review: Etude House Play Color Eyes In the Cafe

리뷰: μ—λ›°λ“œ ν•˜μš°μŠ€ ν”Œλ ˆμ΄ 컬러 μ•„μ΄μ¦ˆ ⏤ μΈ 더 까페 
This one ain't the newest palette of Etude House Play Color Eyes but this one is the limited edition palette!

To be honest, I wasn't intending to buy the Etude House Play Color Eyes In the Cafe palette. Granted, I had seen the newest palette review which is the Wine Party palette. I thought the palette is so beautiful for autumn makeup, even for any kind of makeup because the colors are so pretty! But then, I was looking for a natural-nude-warm-colored palette these days and I found this cute palette, In the Cafe palette. The matte shades are so smooth and pigmented and the glittery shades are looking so pretty and pigmented also.
I bought this online for USD18.40 (well, that was the discount price, the real price is USD26.40 πŸ‘€). I don't know but I think the newest palette, the Wine Party palette, costs higher than the other Play Color Eyes palettes and it's so hard to find the palette in the Etude House offline store. 
The other palettes beside In the Cafe ☕️ are the Wine Party 🍷 - the new one, Beach Party 🏝, Cherry Blossoms 🌸, In the Van πŸš™  and Juice Bar 🍊 palettes which are so pretty. The shades of Beach Party palette look really nice and remind me of the mermaid colors 🐠✨ 
This palette has 10 beautiful shades (from left to the right):
1. ν—ˆλ‹ˆλ°€ν¬ | Honey Milk
2. 까페 λͺ¨κΉŒ | Cafe Mocha
3. μ΄ˆμ½œλ › 라떼 | Chocolate Latte
4. 캬라멜 라떼 | Caramel Latte
5. 해변에선 μ½”μ½”λ„› | Beach Coconut 
6. λ‚΄ λ§ˆμŒμ— 퐁당 | Fall in Love ✨
7. μ‹œλŸ½λΉΌκ³  ν…Œμ΄ν¬μ•„μ›ƒ | Coffee Takeout
8. 까페 라떼 | Cafe Latte
9. κΏ€μžλͺ½μ²­ | Cool Grapefruit Tea
10. ν”ΌμΉ˜νŽ˜νΌμ†”νŠΈ | Peach Pepper Salt ✨
Here are all the swatches of the eyeshadow. The Caramel Latte and Cafe Latte didn't really show up on my skin because I have olive skin tone but these are actually very pretty colors! 
P.S. you need to use eye primer before using this so it can stay a bit longer!

Rating: 8 out of 10
1. Pretty shades
2. Variety of mattes and shimmers
3. Perfect for daily makeup
4. Cute packaging
5. Affordable
6. Some mattes are very pigmented
7. Easy to carry
1. Applicator provided isn't too good
2. A little difficult to blend due to the formula.
