Howdy~ Do you guys notice some changes on my blog?

That's right.. I just rearranged some stuffs for my blog. The layout is still the same but I changed some CSS here and there to make the pictures appear better on the blog. I just had time to do it because I hardly do CSS recently. I am glad I had experience in blogging since I was little so I still understand a little bit of CSS. Blogging is evolving and always changing, and I always have to keep up to make sure my blog stays good. I put a lot of effort on my blog to make sure your leisure time enjoyable when coming to my little space

For me there's 2 types of blogging. A personal blog where it is all about your preference, where you write anything you want without thinking of anything or anybody else. You are free to write in bad grammar, uploading dark pictures, and write anything that you want to write

However for me, blogging is the second answer. It is where I work now and being a perfectionist at job, I always want to make sure I present things that is good in quality
I would keep things arranged neatly and clearly. I would want to put high quality pictures and clear reviews about beauty stuffs. Because it is about informative blog and I have to think about what the others see

Is there any pressure?

I have had TONS of it
I see many amazing blogger friends of mine and I had pressure to keep up with the changes
From owning a cheap digital camera and took pics using flash, took pic using phone camera, moved to DSLR, and then got mirrorless camera and such

Many people asked me, "how to make a blog?"

It is easy. You could just sign up on blogger or wordpress and voila~
But a good blog is different and I am still learning for it

A good blogger needs to know photography, photo editing, make up / fashion artistry, directing shoot, creative director, advertising themselves, talent, and many other things. Unfortunately not many people understand that it requires a lot of efforts for it hereby thinking that as long as we get free stuffs, we'll do it for free

There's always price on something

I am glad that recently more and more people know about this job and know about how it works compared to a few years ago. 5 years ago I could only read XiaXue be able to earn a living through blogging and wishing that it would be practicable in Indonesia. It is moving slowly but surely

Outfit of the Day =

Top & Pants : Chlorine
Bag : Philip Lim
Shoes : Aldo

I had a set from my university classmate's shop, Chlorine. Most of the time I wear clothes from my friend's shop to support them, or things that I bought online. I haven't had luxury to have window shopping for so long because I only bought what I need

For the bag, I was affected by Elle and Julian, my friends. They told me about this bag and being a beauty junkie, unfortunately I am not quite aware of what's in and what's good in fashion industry LOL So I only had what's recommended by my friends usually haha

Anybody feels the same?

Anyway, I have been quite diligent in gym recently. I don't really like sweat but I guess I have to do some activities to keep up my shape. As the result, my biceps is getting bumpy and very obvious recently and I was so scared that I would be muscular lol But my brother who's a gym freak told me it's ok but I had to work on my triceps more because it's still very flabby haha

And then it finally hit on me that I have finally grown into an adult. When you're young, you have to had your parents to ask you to study, to work, to help around house, and to exercise. As you grow older you already have a sense of responsibility to yourself and do it without anyone ask you to

As I count, there's only a few months away till I turn 23. It feels fast, and yet slow
How many years have you guys followed my blog for?

That's a little update from me. Anyway, I am going to make a FAQ video about plastic surgery so you can also leave a comment below to ask me what do you want to know about my surgery ^_^

See you guys on my next post!

Dress by : Dongengan 

Hello everyone. I am still in Bali for my private holiday and got a wonderful time here. I met many many friends, expected and unexpected, and basically love Bali so much. How I wish Anggy is here with me, She said she didnt have money because she'll be going to Thailand to watch DBSK. Something about Yunho will go to Army and so she gets panic. So I am here with other friends and friends, running away from the busy Jakarta


However you still need to be effortlessly pretty during holiday, so I am sharing some of beauty products that I got recently

Having bleached blonde hair + extension means I have to be very picky about my hair brush :( I tried Denman 3D Hair Brush and love how it can successfully brush my hair without pulling it too hard. 
A good hair brush is very different than normal hair brush that you can find at any supermarket, and honestly if you're quite perfectionist on your appearnce I suggest that you find a good hair brush as it completes your hair. It makes hair neater longer. This one is pretty good for only around 10$ 

I had one that had similar result like this but costed me tens times more than Denman. I heard that some people claimed that it's long lasting too

Human and Kind Skin Whitening Cream is my current on the go sunblock! It is very thick and creamy skincare Cream that helps to fight against UV Rays. The cream gives a little bit of whitening effect after usage because of the sunblock ingredient [so make sure to only use it during the day], and for me it's soooooo mattifying

It makes skin a little bit dryer, so I don't recommend it for people with dry skin. But for those with oily skin, you might love it because it helps mattifying your face so bye-bye shine! 

Recently I also put Blinc Eyeliner Pen inside my make up pouch because I love the dark black result produced by this product. Although the tip feels a little bit stiff for my preference, but it can produce thin and thick result nicely, and it doesn't smudge + waterproof. The color is pretty intense and when it's gone after a few hours wearing it in Bali, it just comes off as like dirty buds instead of melting on my eyes

Thank you Superberry for the products <3


I will be coming back to Jakarta soon, and want to work different projects. I got some inspiration from Bali and I want to work harder from now on. Anyway, I just thought that maybe I'll just go directly to Anggy's home and stay over

I haven't told her so I'll ask her later when she wakes up and checks LINE lol
You know that you need to share like EVERY thing to your best friends? I have so many stories to tell directly [I only said it via chat] to her so yea, maybe good

Places where you go is not only the thing that can make you happy
It is more like the companion. So I will extend my holiday a little bit at her home :x

Good bye for now! I am going to have breakfast with Michelle Hendra. She's staying with me for the last 2 nights in Bali haha
Good luck to your everyone

See you guys on my next post!

Opportunity comes at the right time, I was about to bleach my teeth and a few months ago there was an email on my inbox for a teeth whitening offer from a dental in Jakarta. They asked me during the time when I was in Korea for my nose surgery but we had to delay for months as we were waiting for my recovery. I couldn't open my mouth as wide as it used to be yet because I had chin and nose procedure. I did come once for a consultation and another is for scaling before bleaching to prepare for my teeth and so this is my experience having my teeth whitened for the first time XD

I just recently had a photoshoot collaboration with an amazing team
My inspiration when doing the photoshoot is Ayumi Hamasaki as I am a big fan of her style ever since I was young. Located at Keraton The Plaza Hotel, Suite Room, the photoshoot is taken pretty fast by amazing photographer, Fery Saputra

We didn't use any lighting or props as we relay on natural light solely. Therefore anyone can re-create the same thing too and I hope this will be inspiration for you ^^

I just love this white dress by ALGARRY - Albert Yanuar
It is a classic piece and effortlessly gorgeous

I decided to go for a natural make up with red lipstick for a classic look

Taking pictures at Keraton Suite Room which is located at The Plaza [near Plaza Indonesia] is such an awesome opportunity. I would definitely want to stay at this hotel in the future because it is so luxurious and private

Another piece by ALGARRY is this long pink dress with a slit on the side of my leg, giving it a little sexy vibe while still maintaining the elegance

Overall I do enjoy the shoot and I think the pictures turned out very good!! What do you guys think?
Thank you for the amazing team for making the photoshoot happened ^^

You can check out them on their sites =

Hello~ I am back with random post regarding my love toward Japan. I believe most of you know that I am a big fan of Japan, but to be honest eye candies for J-Actors are more difficult to find compared to K-Actors. Korean dramas always feature good looking / handsome actors to attract viewers, while for me personally handsome japanese actors are quite rare

Ikemen is a phrase to call good looking guy in Japan and I have to agree that looking at beautiful boys on the screen, helps me to keep watching the dramas / movies till finished lol 
I LOVE IKEMEN, that's the truth, and although the stories for dramas are the first reason for me to watch it, but if it features ikemen actors or even better those that I like, I will happily follow the dramas

This list is pretty biased according to my preference and most of the guys that I like are quite old mature. Also my taste is kinda different than some people. I don't like / understand the appeal of Oguri Shun, Miura Haruma, Okada Masaki, Satou Takeru, etc. Though I enjoy their acting and dramas but their faces are not my type [not like I am their type either LOLOLOL]

But ANYWAY, here's my top 10 list of Japanese Ikemen Actors by me, not in order

1. Tamaki Hiroshi

One of my most favourite actors that always makes me go "KYUN" whenever I listened to his voice. Tamaki steals the light when I watched Nodame and to be honest it's one of my favourite J-Dramas so far [SUPER RECOMMENDED]. He hit the role perfectly and his acting is so goodddd there along with Ueno Juri. Reason why I love him is he always manages to act the role of a high class gentleman  nicely! I think he looked good with a little bit more meat lol He became very skinny the past few years. Unfortunately I think he hardly got nice drama offers to expand his career more. Anyway he will be the main lead role on the next NHK Asadora [Morning Drama] which means I'll be able to watch him for around 150 episodes! YEAY <3

Recommended Dramas :

  • Nodame Cantabile
  • Kyou ha Kaisha Yasumimasu
  • Ooku 
  • Watashi no Kirai na Tantei

2. Ikuta Toma

One of my most favourite Jhonny's actors that can really act and blessed by good looks! Ikuta Toma is my favourite in Hanazakari no Kimitachi e which is also in my top list recommended J-dramas. I guess he's really stealing the spotlight during the dramas [where all the beauties gathered!] and he really pulled off blonde hair nicely. I love him the most in HanaKimi but I have also followed his other dramas and movies. The newest one is Ouroboros which he starred along with Oguri Shun again, he showed his amazing action skill in this drama. Also I watched the Talk Show where he spent his free time by flying to Korea just to learn martial arts for the sake of his acting career!

Recommended Dramas :
  • Hanazakari no Kimitachi e
  • Maou
  • Ouroboros
  • Genji Monogatari

3. Matsumoto Jun

I guess most of J-Drama lovers have seen or heard about this guy. From the most popular boyband group in Japan, Arashi, MatsuJun created storm at first that made Arashi got a chance to expand their career since then. MatsuJun acted on a lot of popular dramas. Though to be honest at first I didn't really like Japanese version of Hana Yori Dango, as the time goes I think MatsuJun really rocked the role of Domyouji the most. To be honest I like the younger MatsuJun more when he's slightly skinnier and more manga-ish looking XD MatsuJun is also the reason why I know Arashi at the first place, and from Arashi I know more J-Dramas and J-Actors, so he means a lot for me ^^

Recommended Dramas :

  • Hana Yori Dango
  • Shitsuren Chocolatier
  • Bambino
  • Hidamari no Kanojo
  • Kimi Wa Petto
  • Gokusen

4. Okada junichi

Promising actor from Jhonny's again and the only one that I recognise from V6 LOL I'm sorry but I am not a fan of Okada but he's such an eye candy and his acting skill is superb. I am amazed by him after I watched Eien no Zero and when he appeared on Arashi ni Shiyagare to show his martial art skills. Okada is a rare iceman actors who look good on any roles and hair style. He can shave his hair to match soldier's image, he can grow it wildly like samurai, or he can also be pretty with normal Japanese Idol's hair style. His acting is widely recognised on the field and also by me lol I wish to watch his other dramas more when I have time

Recommended Dramas :
  • Eien no Zero
  • SP
  • Gunshi Kanbee
  • Kisarazu Cat Eyes 

5. Nishikido Ryo

The first time I knew Jhonny's people are from dramas and mostly it's the old generation like Nishikido, MatsuJun, Kame, and Yamapi. Nishikido Ryo first stole my heart when I watched him on 1 Litre of Tears for being such a sweetheart T_T Sadly recently he became ossan [old man] and his eye wrinkle is getting worse lol But doesn't matter, still like him. He also has droopy eyes and I think that's the reason why he mostly got weak-looking role on many dramas like the last one that I really like, Gomen ne Seishun! But the one that I really like is when he was playing a samurai at Chonmage Purin [Movie]!!! Since I am too used to his weak-roles, I was bought by his charm as strict and manly samurai! He also showed fantastic performance on Last Friends for being sadistic boyfriend

Recommended Dramas :
  • Zenkai Girl
  • Gomen ne Seishun
  • 1 Litre of Tears
  • Papadoll
  • Chonmage Purin
  • Last Friends
  • Attention Please

6. Osamu Mukai

Osamu Mukai stole my heart when I saw him first on Nodabe Cantabille. He only got a small role but his smile was mesmerising. I spotted him ever since climbed slowly since then till the point he got the leading role during Paradise Kiss. I love the manga and I was looking forward for the movie! Though to be honest I find Mukai is too cute for playing George, in manga George is a playboy and super charismatic while Mukai is just too innocent lol Nevertheless he worked hard on the acting and he has pretty tall heigh too so I was not that disappointed when watching the movie XD The last time I watched him was during Nobunaga Concerto, which was one of my favourite dramas last year!  

Recommended Dramas :

  • Paradise Kiss
  • Hungry
  • Nobunaga Concerto
  • Nodame Cantabile

7. Mizushima Hiro

He started acting for Kamen Rider but I only noticed him when he was playing Nanba Sempai at HanaKimi. I was surprised because he looks like he came out from manga! He often played the role of a playboy / cheerful character but at Mei-chan no Shitsuji, he showed different character by being the perfect, calm, and gentleman butler. When you digging more about his real life, you'd instantly fall in love with him too. He graduated from a prestigious university in Japan, Keio University. He was also good at soccer [I read somewhere he became 'something' in soccer until he injured himself?] and he's fluent in English!! By fluent I think he's really fluent because I watched him speaking english on BECK and he's good! He also married a singer named Ayaka whom sick and he announced quitting to take care of his wife. NOW WHO WONT LOVE HIM! :"( He's back now though for Black Butler movie and his wife seems to be fine too now! 

Recommended Dramas :

  • Mei-chan no Shitsuji
  • Perfectly Boyfriend / Zettai Kareshi
  • Hanazaki no Kimitachi E
  • Tokyo Dogs
  • Beck

8. Naohito Fujiki

Apparently he's the Hanazawa Rui of F4 when he was younger. Yes, Hana Yori Dango / Meteor Garden / Boys Over Flowers or whatever you call them, before it hit big in asia it was made in Japan first 20 years ago!!!! But I first know him from Antique movie and 1 Litre of Tears. I still watched him through VCD at that time [if you don't know what VCD is, LUCKY YOU FOR BEING YOUNG!] I think his most prominent role is Hotaru no Hikari which he starred along with Ayase Haruka for 2 seasons. Last drama of him that I watched is Last Cinderella, and honestly I prefer him over Miura Haruma on that drama haha Despite his age is 42 years old this year, he's still such an ikemen!

Recommended Dramas : 

  • Hotaru no Hikari
  • Last Cinderella
  • 1 Litre of Tears
  • Antique
  • Nobunaga Concerto

9. Kamenashi Kazuya

Kamenashi Kazuya or mostly known as Kame is one of the first J-Actors that I know and all thanks to Nobuta wo Produce. It's my youth drama and I grew up watching it. Kame looks very manga-ish and he's also good at acting. He was chosen to act as Kyouhei at one of my youth manga too, Yamato Nadeshiko Shichi Henge and he played it very well! Although to be honest YamaPi who acted along him during Nobuta is more beautiful, sadly I find Kame's pheromone is higher. Once you like him, you'll eventually know his attractiveness which can't be measured on the appearance alone LOL I mean, I think somehow his face is weird at some angles and he looks anorexic, but he gives out sexy vibe! I watched his last drama Second Love [starring Fukada Kyoko too] but I have to agree that it's one of the worst J-Dramas I have ever watched so I don't recommend you guys to watch it. But if you're curious about Kame's bed scene and where he showed many of his skin, then well, please yourself with that drama lol

Recommended Dramas :

  • Nobuta wo Produce
  • Yamato Nadeshiko Shichihenge
  • Yokai Ningen Bem
  • Gokusen

10. Yamada Ryosuke

And last but not least, Yamada Ryosuke! $SFDSF@#%uihklf!@##@$(@!!!
Recently I am very very into Yamada and it's like licking my own saliva. I am always in a side of "ALL HAIL JAPANESE OSSAN" because to be honest, I love elder guys more and I was always going "YUCK" against any guys who's younger than me even by 1 day! Then if my friends like younger guys I will always say, omg such a pedo bear LOL
Hence if you notice, all the other 9 guys mentioned above is quite old compared to me. Also I think it's because for me the standard of Japanese Ikemen Actors are very rare sight now. Compared to 10 years ago, I spotted so many beautiful actors but now the young actors tend to have weird faces *sorry Japan*. Therefore I was surprised that I could find such gem again here and why does it have to be Yamada who's born in 1993?? I was born in 1992 and couldn't believe myself liking someone younger lol Will this happen more often in the future as I grow older? *pulls my hair*

ANYWAY, I first knew Yamada from his appearances at Arashi's shows. I am a regular watcher for Arashi's shows and usually I know who is who. He came to promote Ansatsu Kyoushitsu which is one of the manga that I have been following for a while, and he acted as Nagisa. Then I was like "who's this handsome guy, why I never knew him?". Turned out I had known him long before but I just never wanted to watch him because I knew he was younger than me *old woman pride*. But I had nothing to do and last season's drama is not very good so I watched Risou no Musuko and OMG PLEASE LET ME MARRY HIM (-____-) His acting is good, and his face is perfect. I watched Kindaichi then and downloaded all the Hey! Say! JUMP stuffs too after that ;__; Despite his amazing performance as an idol [singing, dancing, etc], he showed amazing effort in acting and I wished to watch him more. Right now I am waiting for someone to sub Ansatsu movie or please, let Indonesia cinemas air it [which is impossible T_T]

Recommended Dramas : 

  • Risou no Musuko
  • Kindaichi no Shounen Jikenbo
  • Hidarime Tantei Eye
  • Ansatsu Kyoushitsu

Writing this blog post is longer than what I thought PHEW!!
But I am glad I can ramble uselessly again like this like what I did in a few years back. I was talking about what I like and what I want people to know without thinking about whether people will like it or not. I gotta admit ever since I started working as a professional blogger, there's a pressure on me to make the site look as pro as it can be but recently I was like "ok fuck it, my blog is my blog and I want to share what I love"

I am quite bored when people only talk to me about make up and beauty stuffs related. Let's talk about other things la haha. 
I know I am called beauty blogger but it doesn't change that I adore J-Dramas and also these ikemen guys. You know important thing that I gain when watching them? Thinking that they're so pretty and so stylish as men and I should not lose to them HAHAHA

I won't ask that people will love this kind of post, but I hope that someone will find it useful
If you have any info about whom I should love besides them or if you have any recommendation, leave comment below and share your love with me <3

See you guys on my next post!
