Sponsored video : Express yourselves!

Hi !

Today I want to share with you another thought about expressing yourselves. Many girls and women are afraid to express what they feel inside. Maybe because they're afraid to look weak and ugly. Well, from now on I encourage you to express any kind of feeling you have without worrying you'll look weak and ugly because we're all beautiful.

In life, each on of us have our own problems. Sometimes we feel happy, sometimes we're sad and angry… that's life and we have rights to express what we feel inside. In good and bad times we have to thanked God because from these situations we got many lessons learned.

Me, personally, I always try to express what I feel inside. I'll tell you if I don't like your attitude or if you do something wrong or disrespectful to other people… I always trying to be a honest person.

I know it's kinda confusing and awkward to discuss my personal thought on my blog … but if you're agree about being honest to express your feeling, kindly click on the video and see what I am trying to tell you…

Just remember, you are beautiful just the way you are… be honest and add your beauty to the world!

Holla everyone!

Finally, another blog update! This time I want to share about these famous lipsticks from Too Faced, the Melted liquid lipstick. I know there are already millions of reviews and swatches of this lipstick but I just want to do it anyway. I am a newbie in the world of liquid lipstick, I was thinking that liquid lipsticks are weird… haha! But now I love them! So, these Melted lipsticks are my first ones. I got it in the shade Chihuahua and Berry and I loveee them. Seriously. Really comfortable to wear for daily makeup look, no sticky feeling and it lasts about 4-5 hours on my lips. The finish is matte that's why usually applied my eos lip balm before applying these lipsticks because I have a super dry lips.

Too Faced Melted lipstick in the shade Chihuahua is straight up brown lipstick… and that's why I love this one. Yes, I am a brownie lippie kind of girl (haha… oh gosh, sounds like I am a freak). I was thinking about to get the one in the shade nude and happy that I decided to get this one because the nude one is a lighter brown shade and too pale for my skin tone and clearly it will make me look like I am sick or something like that. This shade perfect for fair to medium skin tone.

Too Faced Melted in the shade Berry is such a really fun colour… well, in my opinion. It is bright and catchy, perfect for any seasons of the year. I like to wear this one when I have minimal makeup but still one to look put together. Make me look fresh and healthier. Is that make sense? (haha!)

So far, I love these Melted lipsticks from Too Faced and would like to try other shades in the future. Maybe next I'll try Fig and Violet, we'll see ^.^ I also like purple base lipstick colour. I'll write another blog post about it. 

Thank you for reading and feel free to leave a comment or share with me what's your favourite liquid lipsticks or any makeup products that I should try.

Have a great day everyone!

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! 

Thank you for reading and have a good day!

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.

Sponsored post : Be the real you!

Hi everyone!

This time I want to share with you my experience with Clean & Clear products. I've been using their products since I was around 13 years old. That time I was using their facial wash, toner, moisturiser, compact powder and oil absorbing sheets. I never had any skin problems every time I use the products which is great because teenagers tend to have skin problem such as acne. When I was in senior high school, again, I used Clean & Clear because I had acne problem because I had so many outdoor activities! I also back to them when I was pregnant last year. Now, I am still using some of their products to minimize my skin problem with acne since now I like to use makeup. See? I always back to Clean & Clear every time I have a skin problem, I love what their products does for me.

When I was a teenager, I want to be loved for who I am and I was a bit afraid of being judged by the other while I am still figuring out who I really am. Well, every teenagers have their own problems and insecurities. Luckily, I never had a major skin problem, especially with acne since I was young until now, which is great. I feel confident with my skin condition. When I feel confident and have no insecurities about my skin appearance, I can express my self and so people can see the real me. Never let your insecurities out shined your beautiful personality. Be confident and be the real you. Do anything positive that makes you feel happy and creative.

Being different from anybody else is good, each one of us have different talents, so don't ever let other people's negativity influenced you. Do the best of what you like and be a good inspiration for others.
Don't ever be afraid to be the real you!  

Thank you for reading!
Have a good day beautiful people.

Skincare routine - updated!

Hi everyone! 

This time I want to share with you about my updated skincare routine. I posted my previous skincare routine on 2013 and now it's completely different. Back in the day it was like a complete SK-II routine for day and night… which is crazy because this brand is helllaaaa expensive. Well, I am still using their cellumination line but I think I won't repurchase them because … you know.

For me, it is important to have such a healthy skin to make me feel more confident. I have a very very dry skin and I have to do my best to keep it moisturised day and night. So far, I am happy with my skincare products.

For the last few months I've been using Foreo Luna mini and Philosophy Purity to wash my face. Both of them are amazing. Love my Foreo but I think I'll use another product when I finish my philosophy Purity. I like it, but I don't know, my skin feel so dry every time after I use it. Around 2-3 times a week I exfoliates my skin using St. Ives apricot scrub. Loooovveee the smell of it. It does really makes my skin feel so smooth and fresh! A highly recommended product. And one more thing, I don't use my Foreo after I scrub my face, I only wash it with my philosophy purity and that's enough.

My morning skincare routine is between Clinique and SK-II. When I have dry patches I like to use SK-II facial treatment essence (which is my holy grail product!), serum and moisturiser and when my skin is well behave I use my Clinique moisturiser. These products are great, especially the Facial Treatment Essence, I can't live without it.

At night, after I wash my face I only apply my SK-II facial treatment essence and a few drops of maracuja oil from Tarte. These two are bad ass! I wake up every morning with a healthy and moisturised skin since I use them for the last couple months.

I am a lip product junkie. I had a very dry and chapped lips and that's why I like to try sooooo many lip products to find my holy grail lip balm and lipstick. I have found some of my favourite products and my recent fave are EOS in medicated tangerine flavour and Rosebud Salve. I also like my vaseline lip therapy, tender care from oriflame and nivea lip butter. 

For lotion, I always choose the one with whitening or anti aging formula and this Vaseline lotion have them both. I am living in Surabaya and let me tell you something about the weather… it is freakin' hottt!
That's why I need a whitening lotion so my skin doesn't gets darker. I almost finish with this one, I already have a backup… which is St. Ives lotion. Haha!

So, that's it. Now I have a more simple skincare routine and so far so good. I am happy with all my skincare products. I know some of them are pricey but it lasts for months or almost a year! Which is great. I think so far my most favourite are my SK-II facial treatment essence, Tarte maracuja oil, EOS medicated tangerine and St. Ives apricot scrub.

Please feel free to share what is your holy grail skincare products on comment section.
I'd love to know!

Thank you for reading!

secret mascara!

Hi everyone! Glad to be back!
Yes.. this time I want to share with you my personal opinion about a secret mascara.
So, an agency emailed me couple weeks ago and said that they want to send me a secret mascara from a brand… they said that it is a high end brand mascara and the brand products sells in Sephora.
I was like… hhmm… interesting! I love most of high end brands in Sephora… well, who doesn't ??

The package came in a small black box with an off white bow and the mascara itself in black tube and silver cap and no brand on it. Mysterious… haha! 

When I open it I was a bit … hhmm… not so happy about the bristles.
Yes, I am not a big fan of mascara with plastic bristles, I don't know why, I never use rubber bristles before but I just don't like it. And now I am happy that I have a chance to try one and see how it works. 

I've tried this mascara twice… and I love it.
It's a black colour mascara and so far all I can say about it is that it is a volumizing mascara (which is good) and seriously waterproof… another good thing is that you won't see any residue or colour transfer to your under eye area. I have no idea if this mascara really works that way but that's my impressions when I applied this mascara on my lashes that lasts for about 6-8 hours.

Thank you for reading!
