Denim Meets Stripes

Untitled

"Even youths grow tired and weary, and young men stumble and fall; but those who hope in Lord will renew their strength. They will soar on wings like eagles; they will run and not grow weary, they will walk and not be faint." ă…¡Isaiah 40:30,31

That's one of my favorite quotes from the Bible. I'm not really a religious kind of person. And I knew this quote while I was randomly browsing for motivational quotes for final exam based from Bible (final exam starts on Monday and I'm getting terrified as I already forgot so many past chapters when I tried to study from the beginning *freak out*).
I do believe that God will always know what's the best for us, whether it's good or bad, it's all to make us grow. But the most important thing is that the miracle won't happen no matter how hard you pray if you don't do anything.

Cherie Bomb


I personally like this outfit the most out of the other outfits that I wore during this pre-17 photoshoot. This outfit's concept is a rebel girl. Brave, fun, creative, sassy, and a lil bit bitchy ;p.

When my brother asked me whether I wanted to do a pre sweet 17 photoshoot or not, I instantly said yes. Then, I browsed for many pre-sweet 17 photoshoots on the internet and mostly, they do a shabby-chic themed photoshoots with lots of florals, long gowns, floral crowns, bunnies, etc. Those looked so dreamy. But then, I chose to do the photoshoot with my own concepts and outfits. I didn't want to spend so much money for gowns that would only be worn once. So yeah, I made my own mood board and styled the outfits which I'd love to wear for this photoshoot :D.

What do you think about this concept? :)

My Bedroom & Closet Room Tour



This is the video that I finally made after hestitating a lottt...My bedroom is so messy everyday... except in the morning after my house helper cleans my room.. Please understand that I'm so busyy I barely have time to arrange my stuffs T.T.

I filmed my room last Sunday, where I had some free time to clean and tidy up! My closet room is located in front of my bedroom (separated). It's originally my belated grandma's room. After she died, it's full of me & my mom's stuffs and day by day it's getting messier and so full of clothes. So, we decided to renovate that room to be my closet's room. The design is made by an interior designer in Tegal, but I asked him to make this and that according to my needs. My mom already has her own wardrobe in her bedroom, so this closet room mostly contains my clothes :). 

Please keep in mind that I do this video to share to you how I arrange my bed room and closet room, which may be an inspiration for others if they're going to renovate their room. You can also guess my personality, my style, based on the design of my bedroom and the clothes in my closet room. I don't have any intention to show off.  Thank you! Hope u enjoy watching my video ;)

Better

IMG_2823

Most of the time, the biggest rock that blocks our path to success is our own selves. We want to be like this.. we want to get this, but it just seems so hard and it gets worse when laziness strikes. Day by day, we pass through them doing nothing and then we realize that we're still stuck at the same point.

Sometimes, it happens to me too. I procrastinate so much, and then the turtle had already passed the rabbit.

IMG_2782

Everyone has regrets. Time flies so fast, and it's getting even faster and faster nowadays. I promise to myself to always use my time well. What do we live for if it's not for improving ourselves to be better and better? Even the people who already seem so perfect, were born with everything, will still work their way up even higher and higher.. We'll always be grateful, but not always be satisfied.

About this outfit, the photos were taken on last Sunday. I forced my dad to help me take these pictures after he finished his Sunday routine which is washing his cars xD.

I've been eyeing for a perfect floral romper, and I was so happy to get one from SUPERGURL. Supergurl is a Singapore-based webstore, but they ship worldwide!

Fur Heart

IMG_2732 copy

I failed in a competition a while ago. I was sad and upset to myself to the fact that I couldn't make my parents proud. Thank God, my best friend encouraged me and cheered me up again. I'm so lucky to have her.. And I'm also getting more nervous as I'm having my final exam in early June which is coming in less than 3 weeks. I hope I can do my best and get the best result. I really don't want to disappoint my parents twice T.T

I didn't wear this outfit to go out. I dressed up like this thinking as if I were going to an airport and going to a spring/fall vacation.. It was so freaking hot when I took these photos though, lol...
I'd definitely wear this outfit for my winter vacay!

For those who asked, I deactivated my ask.fm account because I need more time to concentrate on my studies first. I procrastinate a lot on social media, so I guess I need to reduce some of it. I'll activate it back after I'm done with my exam :D. In the mean time, you can follow me on instagram: @verenleecious for my latest updates!

Gotta off to finish my homework.. Bye ;)
P.s: I'm going to post about my school's prom next week. Stay tuned!

WAKUWAKU JAPAN : Iron Chef 4th Cycle

As we've entered a new month of the year.. WAKUWAKU JAPAN has released moree new programs in their Entertaiment section. And one of it which caught my attention is IRON CHEF! (I'm a bigggg fan of cooking shows. Before Master Chef / Hell's Kitchen exsist, Iron Chef was the show that I regularly watched!)


This cooking show has been popular in Japan since 1993 and there were also the america's, uk's, thailand's, vietnam's, and indonesia's version. In Indonesia.. the host for IRON CHEF was Derry Drajat. (Do some of you remember this show and how fierce Derry Drajat was?! Especially the way he spoke! lol!)


The show's description : "Chef ternama dari dalam dan luar negeri diundang sebagai penantang untuk saling beradu kemahiran dengan chef masakan Jepang, Prancis, Cina, dan Italia yang menjadi pengisi tetap tayangan ini, alias "Chef Besi". Setiap kali mereka berupaya menyajikan masakan terbaik dari bahan masakan dengan tema tertentu. Acara memasak legendaris ini populer berkat penampilan para chef yang membuat adrenalin kita terpacu, seolah menyaksikan pertunjukan langsung bela diri"

"Notable chefs from domestic and overseas are invited as challenger to compete with Japanese / French / Chinese / Italian specialist chefs which are the permanent attendees on this show, a.k.a "Iron Chef". Every time they try to serve the best dish from the best groceries with certain themes. This legendary cooking show becomes populer because of the performance of the chefs that makes our adernaline motivated, as if we're watching a live martial show."

I'm so looking forward to watch this show only at WAKUWAKU JAPAN every Saturday & Sunday at 18.00 - 19.00 WIB (Channel 168 Indovision / Channel 32 Okevision) since I've never watched this original (Japanese) version!!

Bold Red

IMG_4514

Helloooooooooooooo! I really missed my blog after a very very busy week of preparing my school's prom! It was successful and fun, which I couldn't thank God enough for that. I lost around 2kg because of the pressure and stress that I had as the event's coordinator (like an eo, I looked for ideas, concept, performances, nominations, design, songs, etc for the party). I couldn't sleep for 2 days, I kept rolling from sides to sides on the bed everytime I couldn't fall asleep, I didn't have any appetite to eat due to my nervousness, and I kept checking on the event's run down all over again to make sure I wouldn't miss a thing before the D-day. The pressure was so much bigger than last year since last year's prom was also a success, so I had to make it even moree entertaining and better than last year. (Last year, I was the junior in Osis (student council) , so I didn't feel that nervous since I had my senior).
 Thank God!! this year, my team (the event's organizer team) 's teamwork was so good . Everyone worked hard and did their job quickly and well. I am really really relieved \(^o^)/

IMG_4620

Anyway, on my ask.fm, an anonymous said a really stupid statement to me, "why do u keep on mentioning osis (student council) on ur ig / blog? SHOW OFF?"

Lol. I couldn't help but to laugh at him/her. I really AM the student council's member. And I'm always proud to be one. I don't get why she thought I brag about it when it's really the story of my daily life. I was just sharing on my IG that I was very busy preparing my school's prom which was my priority at that time esp to my sponsors who had been asking me when I'd post the photos. And my blog has always been my online diary where I write about my life. Not only my outfits, but I also like to write about my thoughts and my days at school. They're all facts, not something for me to brag about.

IMG_4665

And there was also one time where another anonymous tried to attack me by saying that I shouldn't show my achievements when I won the 2nd place of computer olympiad and best student, because there are much many people who are better than me. Well, it's my life, it's a very happy news for me, my parents, my family, and my teachers. Why can't I share about it? Why do I have to stay silent about it? It's not even a crime. I know I'm nothing compared to genius people in this world. But it's my ig, my blog, my twitter, my rights....to share whatever happens to my life that I feel like telling it to others. Maybe it can be an inspiration to others. I'm aware that there's always another sky above sky.

When people say I'm smart, cute, active at school, blogging, and maaany more, I am grateful about it. But one thing that those haters should know about, those are not something that I gain instantly. I always want to try new things in my life and fill up my time with many activities.

 I was fat and ugly. I tried to do diet and learned how to dress up and do my make up.

When I was in elementary school, my mom really payed attention to my grades, where she would be mad if I got 98, which made me to always study hard until now so that I won't disappoint her.

Being active at student council, is something that I chose to do wholeheartedly. I could be lazy and inactive from those things if I wanted to. But then, I always think that joining the school's student council will be a great experience for me rather than doing nothing at home. We learn about team work, leadership, dealing with many people, creating events, being creative, and ,many more.

Being a blogger, is also not as easy as what others think, especially to a student like me. Sometimes when I am already so busy and there are so many tests at school, I just want to rest, sleep and fool around at home on weekends. But then my heart and mind will be bothered by the thoughts of the hiatus on my blog and I had to take photos for my sponsors. But then, I really don't want to neglect my blog because I really take it as my online diary.

What I want to say is, by saying all of this, I don't have any intention to brag myself. But, I am very sure that anyone can also be smart, pretty, active, and many more if they have a strong determination. It's something that we can achieve with our efforts. Hating others because you're envious of what they have is just the most useless activity ever. You gain NOTHING from it.
You want to be pretty? Start taking care of yourself and learn from various sources! (magazines, blogs, youtube, ur mom, ur sis, etc.).
You want to have good grades? Study! (one of my classmates is very dilligent and she's the one who showed me that dilligency can beat talent !)
You want to be an active student? Sign up as the student council member or join any other extras at your school.
You want to be a blogger? Start a blog and write with your heart and consistency.
You want to be good at sports / music / cooking / dancing / drawing? Learn, learn, and learn...

Let me end this long thoughts by quoting one of my life's motto which I've written on this blog for multiple times; "when there's a will, there's a way". Nothing is impossible.. Always believe and never give up to try. You can be whatever you want to be! If you fail and don't feel like continuing, you can always try other options.. There are like so many things that you can explore in this world. I hope you're not bored with this topic that I often bring to this blog... but some of you really need to read this before hating on others. Remember, while you're hating on others, trying to make that person down and dragging him/her to the same ordinary life of yours... those people might not be affected with what you say. Instead, they'll rise even higher and leave you even further.

These are some photos of my just-for-fun pre-sweet17 photoshoot that I did with my bro last month. There are 5 other different concepts and this is the first concept. No need to freak out with the red lipstick since it's for photoshoot purpose only. This was one of my fav make up done by @vamakeupartist (ig) because I looked different and more 'charismatic' here. Hahaha. I wanted to show a feminine yet bold image of myself in this concept.
