Melbourne, A Travel Story

It was almost a month ago as me & Jacky toured around the cold spring Melbourne. We couldn't ask for a better timing for such perfect weather. Especially that we were there on duty. Lucky us, we still get the chance to extend our trip a couple extra days to wander around and get inspired by the city. I think this is the closest I can get to wear warm outfits to winter since I live in tropical country, and the thought of being wrapped around 5 layers of heavy clothes just already made me feel like a snowball. Although I fancy the idea of layering outfits, my ideal time of doing it is still on the spring time.

Being at Brighton Beach after the rain. This is one of the key places to go for tourists and also Melburnians, especially on summer to relax and enjoy the sun on this calm bay beach. It's also one of Melbourne's most picturesque sights with the colourful row of 'Bathing Boxes' that runs along it's shores. These little sheds are privately owned, by the way.

 Finding new places for brunch has always been our favourite things to do, especially on traveling days.  This was from our morning at Chez Dre. Sitting down, sipping coffee (or tea and hot chocolates for me, please) while enjoying the view that we doesn't get to see everyday is just a simple inspiring moment. Oh, and did you know that Melbourne is one of the best flat white places in the world? 

Too bad we didn't have this kind of weather in Jakarta. 

We did get to spend one of the glorious days in Melbourne by visiting The Royal Botanic Garden. It was also one of my favourite place to hang out on a sunny spring Sunday especially with Billy & Maggie, our friend's two adorable Frenchies.

We love Melbourne's sunset and I think Melbourne look the prettiest at night.

Last night I was at the celebration of my dearest Auntie's birthday at Orient8, Mulia Hotel.
The colonial French design of this place brings me to these white-on-white ensemble.  

If you ever been here, you might didn't notice, but they have Napoleon with a wayfarer-looking glasses painted on the ceiling! 
 And the matching Napoleon uniform on the waiters and waitress's back.

Slow Sunday

Yesterday I splurged the Sunday on some new inspirations, de-cluttering our room, and some quality time with the hubby. What about you?

InstaSession Weekend

Our tired brains and body got stuck in a boredom last Friday. So me and my photographer bestie, Hakim started an Instagram Session through the places we explored and the food we ate that night. This is obviously a random idea that I will continue to do if I ever gonna get bored on the weekends!

Gifted & Blessed

Just can't help it with Jakarta's weather lately. It's been hot and cold, humid and sticky at the same time.
 Often I did an easy-peasy ponytail as my hair grew longer, because believe it or not, I have never had my hair down to this length all my life! I used to be a pretty tomboy girl since I was 4yrs old. So, I'm gonna learn more about DIY hairstyling for sure.

Last weekend spent by working from home, due to our crazy schedule this week. 
Did you realize that it's almost the end of October soon? Only a few months left to say 'Sayonara 2012' !! Does it ever cross your mind about your achievements for this year? I did. And I'm proudly put some strikethrough to a few numbers off my 2012 resolutions list. How about you? There's still 2 months and few weeks to go! HURRY! TAKE. ACTION.NOW!

CLARKS @ 707 Store

My dear handsome Lads,

I'm sure you're already familiar with these sheepskin shoes? I got invited last night for their launch at 707 store.. Remember the store down at Kemang? Yes, that's the place. And did you know that your girlfriend could try on the Clarks wedges too? There's a few stocks left and I'm sure you and her will love it.  

Anyways, where have you been? I miss you! Talk to me.

Free Falling

I know I've not been around so much in the blog for a long 2 months. Not much explanation needed since I was so busy being "in the zone" - yes, it's a work thang. So I'll spare you the details. Although you might already know what I've been up to from my Instagram. In the end, being away from the blog was quite agonizing. But suprisingly staying 10 days in Melbourne, Australia was not agonizing at all! Me & Jacky just came back from the cold spring-y and gorgeous Melbourne for a little pre-wedding shots for our good friends. I will post some photos from the trip soon!

It's good to be back though, I've already came across to several new ideas and a big project coming up for the blog. Can't wait to start on it! Anyhow, finally I can wear this mini-dress that my bestie gifted to me from my birthday, along with the matching clutch. Put out a gold bling on my neck and my hubby's jacket to keep me warm under the rainy Jakarta. 

Remember that looking your best will make you feel your best! 
That's my mantra for the week, quoted from my muse, the beautiful Ms.Olivia Palermo
Hope you have a fun weekend!
