Daniel Wellington!

Hi everyone!

I am so glad that now I can manage to update my blog almost everyday! Yeay-ness!
Today I want to share about a well known watch brand called Daniel Wellington. The story behind Daniel Wellington begins with a trip half way around the globe where Filip Tysander, the founder of Daniel Wellington, met an intriguing gentleman from the British Isles. The man had the inspiring ability to be genteel but still relaxed and unpretentious. He had an impeccable style and loved to wear his watches on old weathered NATO straps. His name? Well, Daniel Wellington, of course. The preppy trend is bigger than ever before but they felt that there was an empty space in the watch market. There was something missing and the Daniel Wellington team aims to fill that gap. Their vision is that when someone thinks of a preppy dressed person, he or she is wearing a Daniel Wellington watch. When Filip’s line of watches came to be launched, it was no insecurity that the brand would be named after Daniel Wellington. 

They felt it important to make the watch thin and elegant, they wanted a clean design, without too many features, that would look good with the different patterns and colours of the iconic NATO straps. Slowly but surely, a beautiful watch emerged. It was thin, refined and perfectly round. It was minimalistic and without too many features. They believe that the traditional, yet crisp design blends together perfectly with the colourful NATO strap and elegant leather strap which will appeal to almost everyone with a sense for classic and timeless design.

Classy Sheffield - 26 mm

With a case size of just 26 millimeters, this is the most minimalistic collection of watches by Daniel Wellington. The finish creates a beautiful harmony between the band and the exclusive Swarovski crystals, and the slim dial makes it a watch that oozes classy femininity. The ultra-thin (6mm) Daniel Wellington watch is suitable for every occasion. Whether you are attending a formal event, playing a game of tennis or enjoying a sunny day at the country club, Daniel Wellington makes for a beautiful companion. Not only that, but with interchangeable straps you will have a unique timepiece for every day of the week.

Personalize your DW watch. Each and every one of their watches have interchangeable straps which make every watch unique. Their leather straps are made of genuine Italian, quality leather and are available in brown and black with a silver or gold plated brace. 

Now, go to their website and order one of their beautiful watches… feel free to use my discount code 'dwadelle' to get 15% discount from the website shopping! The shipping is free!

by the sea

Hi peeps!

So glad… happy… excited to be back here… writing another article for my blog! I've been so busy with my baby boy, yes, common reason from a blogger mommy. Haha! Can't believe that being a mommy is a full of fun experience and full of surprises. I am so blessed :)

Okay, enough about the motherhood thing because today I want to introduce you to a brand from Bali named By the Sea designed by Brazilian designer Renato Vianna and he spent 15 years with Brazil’s best-known menswear fashion house Richards before moving to Bali in 1993. Spending his life on the beach from childhood on he knows the beach lifestyle as no other. Combined with his fashion heritage, his grandfather was a tailor, mother made the family clothes, so a career in the fashion industry was inevitable. After working in sales retail for two years he started to make his own line of shorts and the instant success made him move to Bali in 1993, where he started to do the production by himself. By the Sea, was found in 1997 with the first outlet based in Legian, Bali. Being inspired by the island’s vibrant colors, natural beauty and relaxed lifestyle his idea was to create pieces that fit with a tropical lifestyle. He has succeeded in taking high quality originally designed fabrics and turning them into easy to wear cool and comfortable resort wear and currently sold in 4 countries worldwide.

Being a mom and living in a cray cray hot city like Surabaya are the reasons why I like to wear simple, comfortable and stylish outfit. Wearing outfit from By the Sea it feels like everyday is holiday because it has beachy (is it a word??) and nautical themes and feeling. Well, yes, the brand is from Bali, no wonder it is so appropriate to wear the designs while you're in vacation to a place like Bali, Lombok, and everywhere else that has beaches. I like to wear their clothes even tough I just strolling around the city, taking my baby out on the weekend in comfortable shorts and stripes loose top ^.^

Burkina glasses - Polette eyewear, grey cardigan - Zara
stripes loose top - By the Sea, green shorts - By the Sea
black shoes - H&M, Classy Sheffield watch - Daniel Wellington 

By the Sea just launched their webshop this month, so kindly check out their site at bytheseatropical.com and follow their instagram @bytheseatropical

Have a good day!

Aqua and Velvet

Holla everyone! 
I hope y'all have a great day!

Today I want to share about my holy grail high end liquid foundations. Yes, they're Chanel foundations, Vitalumiere Aqua and Perfection Lumiere Velvet. I know both of this foundations are already released for years and I am kinda late to post about this kind of things… haha, but still, many people out there still need some informations and reviews about these two. 

I've tried the vitalumiere aqua on my wedding day about almost 2 years ago. Always wanted to try it for yeaarrsss but … you know, it is quite pricey, so I always end up buying another foundations from the drugstore. When finally I got my hands on this product, I am so excited! Vitalumiere has dewy finish on my skin, so if you have dry skin like me, you might love this product and if you have combination skin you need to set the foundation a little bit and if you have oily skin… hhmm, I think you would not like it.

Perfection Lumiere Velvet is another favourite of mine. It's matte finish.  Honestly, I prefer this one to vitalumiere aqua. Many reviews said that it's great for oily skin type, but I've tried this one and I love it. I moisturised my skin with maracuja oil and then apply this on my face to get beautiful satin finish. 

Both of the foundations are light to medium coverage which is great because full coverage or heavy makeup look is not my thing. I only wear one layer of foundation or BB cream to even out my skin tone. Another great thing about them is the packaging. It's small, simple and travel friendly. No need to worry about breaking the glass bottle. I like to apply them on my face using beauty blender sponge. I never apply foundations using my fingers, it's just so weird... in my opinion.

One more thing… I think I have dupes of this foundations. I found that Bourjois healthy mix serum foundation is similar to Vitalumiere aqua and Covergirl 3in1 Outlast Fabulous is similar to Perfection Lumiere Velvet :)

Thank you for reading!
Have a good day.
