This was my outfit when I returned to Tegal from Jakarta by train last week. Yeah, I wore this outfit to the train station but with different hair accessory. I wore a headband on that day but I left it on the train when I got off and I didn't have any time to take outfit photos at the train station because of the traffic jam that almost made me miss my train. =__=. I didn't bring any luggage / big bags because my parents brought my luggages by car on the next day. (I had school on Monday so I had to left Jakarta earlier xP)
I felt so girly in this outfit because of the florals and pastel colors in this outfit. Not to mention my favorite horse bag that I got in Jakarta and my unicorn slash barbie's heels necklace from the superrrr kind Petriciaeure.
My jobs and tasks are being done one by one, and the remaining ones should be finished on Monday.
I really can't wait for Tuesday, as it's a public holiday in Indonesia and it's the time where I don't have any assignments to be done anymore except taking outfit shots for my sponsors.
On Monday, there'll be a 'Bahasa Month' competitions (story telling, poetry, drama, vocal group, all held and prepared by the student council) at school and I'm assigned as the head of this event. We (the student council) had prepared since 3 weeks ago, from announcing the competitions and holding a technical meeting. I come home late from Mon-Sat for 1.5 week to prepare this event with the student council and also practice dramas with my classmates. After I'm home, I'd try to blog / at least reply some e-mails / do other blogging stuffs.
It's a really really busy week for me. I hardly find a right time to take outfit photos for my sponsors, especially those who keep asking me when I will post theirn products on my blog without considering my full time job as a busy student, and my situation where I don't go anywhere except school hence I have no time to dress up =___=.
Custom made shoes c/o Decimal Shoes .
(I found a random shoe pic on instagram and fell in love with it but Idk where to buy. So when Decimal offered me to make a pair of shoes, I showed them a pic of the shoes! I'm so glad that the result is satisfying. Fyi, the standard shoelace from Decimal is black, but I changed it with my own pink shoelace to match this outfit :)

Many people ask me on my ask.fm how I can be an active student and also a blogger at the same time. I say, it's all about time management. I can't say I'm good at managing my time due to the level of my tiredness everyweek and I often nag to my mom too about how tired I am yet I still have so many things to be done.
But, it's all comes back to what we call as passion. I loveee being an active student at school. I like to give my ideas to the student council about the events we're going to make, the concept, and other stuffs that will make the events be interesting.
I also love blogging. I lovee to dress up. On the weekends, I love to take photos of myself (I've been using the tripod and selftimer for almost 4 years.) then I will share my outfits on my blog to other people. Even when someone tweeted me or tagged me their outfits who are inspired by me, I always feel so happy.
Yea, actually sometimes I feel tired too with taking outfit photos where I don't actually go out but I take those photos just as a post for a sponsored clothing. My friends usually sleep, eat, and rest on Sunday. But, on Sunday I will wake up in the morning, eat, then prepare to take outfit photos. In the afternoon after I've finished taking photos for the sponsored stuffs, I'll edit the pics and post them at night (if possible) and then sleep. That's how my usual Sunday goes. I used to enjoy that during my early years of blogging, because most of my outfits weren't sponsored so I don't quite feel pressured to update my blog and post the outfits as soon as possible.
I nag a lot about that to my mom. But my mom says that I should be proud of myself for spending my time with many school activities and also blogging (where I get my own incomes from sponsors) when lots of other people at my age don't. She also said that maybe I feel tired because I still haven't done the right time management, but I think I also don't have enough leisure time too.
But then, I realize that my first priority is school . My full time job is a student. Hence I need a lot of energies everyday and I have to have enough rest. Soo... to make my weekends less busier than before (so I can rest a bit and back to how I used to blog like before), I've decided to be more selective in accepting sponsors , so I still can blog, dress up, but with a whole heart, not a half heart where I post the outfits just because my sponsors can no longer wait.
In my 4th year of blogging, I've received so many great opportunities. For being featured on magazines, invited to fashion shows, fashion collaborations, or even a tv talkshow (I couldn't make it because I don't live in Jkt and I can't always skip school) , and receiving so many freebies from my sponsors. I feel really grateful although I still have so many flaws.
I have so many wishes about my blogging activity. Like improving my boring 'photo' style. I feel bored taking photos in my house almost all of the time, and also bored using tripod and self timer. But I also still can't find a way to make my photos look better. It's already hard to take outfit photos at home between my busy schedule, and on the weekend it's alsoooo hard to ask my friends to take some photos of me outdoor because almost all of us have different activities on weekend T_T.
My mom says I must be patient till I graduate from senior high school. Because after that I'll be living in Jakarta with my brother who's likely can be my photographer, and I also can easily attend to exciting events without worrying about skipping school too! And by that I can expand my blog much more easier :).
I also wish that I'll keep writing this online diary of mine untl whenever~... It's like a recording of the evolution of my life :p. My absurd and 50:50 thoughts as a teens, my girly2 outfits, etc.
Anyway, I got an award from LOOKS MAGAZINE as The Most CUTEST Fashion Blogger. Thanks a bunchhh!
