Clemence Ellery Jewelry πŸ’Ž

It's Clemence Ellery Fine Jewelry's first Ready-To-Wear event! Couldn't be more excited and supportive to my dearest ladybosses who I personally look up to!




The event was at Grand Hyatt Penthouse with guests, a short interactive question & answer session, private viewing of their collections and of course, snacks too!

I was more than happy to see my friends doing so well in their lives, it's a blessing to be able to experience this with them and it inspires everyone around them to think ahead, dream on and make it happen.




Nothing is too hard to achieve, nothing is impossible. It requires a lot of hard work but with perseverance and determination, it's possible. Work hard and make it happen.

Jen's Baby Shower πŸ‘ΆπŸ»

A baby is the greatest give and blessing anyone could ever asked for. 



Today's finally the day for my very close friend's baby shower. It's a boy! πŸ‘ΆπŸ» Look at the balloons, teddy bear and flower, aren't they adorable?



It was a surprise celebration for Jen and thankfully she was pretty much surprised! Planning the entire baby shower wasn't a hassle, but to keep it from her was hard since we talk regularly everyday so I had to somewhat lay low.



The Proud Parents, Jen & Leon



Wishes for the baby... it's one of the key points that we enjoy doing for Jen and baby E. It's good for us all as her friends to take some time to really write our wishes for the baby and of course, bless him with our wishes.



Us girls, hanging out and chilling together. It's a fun day indeed, catching up with what's going on with our lives were pretty much the highlight of the day. 



We did a few games to celebrate, it was fun nevertheless!



Me with the Tirta Sisters

At the end of the day, it was an amazing day. We had fun, lots of laughs and the surprise was a big success so congratulations of all of us!



To end the day, I've got my #OOTD photographs to disclose. Here it is!







Last but not least...

Birthday Lunch πŸŽ‚

A warm wish of happy birthday to the most amazing sister and friend anyone could ever ask for in the entire world. She's the one and only Ci Ixiell. I consider her more than a friend, more than a sister, she's like a family to me.


Our friendship is loving, caring, funny and sisterhood-like. She's someone who I look up to, I share a lot of things and asks for her opinion from time to time. Nevertheless, she never disappoints me. 





I consider her daughter, Caytreona, as my little sister. She's a happy-go-lucky little girl with tons of energy and crazy ideas but she's amazingly amazing in so many ways.



Cheers to years ahead for our friendship! Here's my #OOTD post on our birthday luncheon

Ikebana 2.0 🌹

Ikebana is something challenging that I'm currently working on.  In every single lesson I had so far, I struggled to understand and to process the new knowledge into my brain. It's something totally new than ordinary flower bouquet or simple table arrangement.




Lesson 3.1 Jiyuka (Free Style) Natural

Ikebana requires certain technique, knowledge, guidelines and most importantly, creativity. Yes, it's hard but I'm not giving up on something that I just begin to enjoy doing for the past couple of months. 


 
Lesson 3.2 Jiyuka (Free Style) Natural


I seriously need more time to process this new information and knowledge for the next step in Ikenobo. γŒγ‚“γ°γ‚ŠγΎγ™!

Baby Kayla πŸ‘ΆπŸ»

When I see you, my eyes turn into little hearts πŸ‘§πŸ» Kayla Haven, a little baby who steals my heart from the moment I saw her. 




I will always remember her tiny smiles, laughs, tears and cries clearly just like when she sleeps in my arms for short naps. You're a tiny little baby who holds my heart more than anyone in this world. You're lucky!





To clear things up, she's not mine but I consider her more than just someone else's baby. She's my little sweetheart and forever will be in my heart.



 


Me loves you more than anything and you have to know that, you are so loved with people around you. Never forget that, when you grow older and you see me. I'll know that it's you.




Grow up and conquer the world, little one πŸ‘ΆπŸ»

Kitty-kinda-lunch ❤️

It's Saturday! Saturday means no work, no stress and no annoying meetings. I couldn't be more excited to experience the day with lots of chilling, basically doing nothing more than heading to the gym in the morning then laze around all day.

My love for Hello Kitty has no limits, it makes me happy to do this kind of setting for my lunch. It's my favorite character and I can't help it. It's too cute to be true. 

 

However, it doesn't stop me from being awesome by cooking my own lunch. Although, I've got my Gado-Gado from one of my favorite restaurant, Tesate but the rest are my very own homemade creation. 

 

Not the usual kind of Gado-Gado but this is amazing!


Here's their awesome peanut sauce, I usually pour 1/3... it's fattening 😝




My very own recipe Salmon with Broccoli, Peach & Pear. It's amazing!

 

And yes, fruits on the side. As usual. 

 

Last but not least, it's my strawberry infused water πŸ“

Ikebana 1.0 🌸

Ikebana is not just about sticking a flower into vase: it is about the love and need of the artist to create beautiful forms... Ikebana is not just about flowers, it is about the person who arranges them. - Ikebana Quotes

I love flowers. There I said it. It's that simple for me, real or fake flowers? No problem as long as it's pretty much like a flower but my ultimate favorite would be, Hydrangea and White Roses. 


I had this urge to learn since I was in Junior High School but I had no time for that. My parents weren't saying yes about it too so I kind of give up on the idea of Ikebana completely. Then, I the idea came up around end of March to find somewhere close to home or the office to learn Ikebana. Voila! I found one with the Ikebana Master around Cikini, Menteng area. 

I finally had the chance to learn Ikebana for real! It's something completely different than buying bouquets for gifts or simple flower arrangements. Ikebana itself has different styles, types and rules to do its arrangement.

Here's what I made on my first two sessions with Ibu Herliana Wiharsa, the Ikenobo Master in Jakarta. 

 

 Lesson No. 1.1 - Jiyuka (Free Style) Natural

 

Lesson 1.2 - Jiyuka (Free Style) Natural

 

Lesson 2.1 - Jiyuka (Free Style) Natural

 

Lesson 2.2 - Jiyuka (Free Style) Natural


I can honestly say, Ikebana is hard. It's not as easy as making a hand bouquets or simple flower arrangement. It requires in depth knowledge about a lot of things apparently but I ain't giving up! 🌸

Raise, Aim, Shoot 🏹

Nothing clears a troubled mind better than shooting a bow 🏹


 


It's been a while since my last archery experience. I totally forget how to aim and shoot, how pathetic. It was depressing yet thrilling to learn what I've forgotten. I feel like the lame version of Katniss Everdeen who missed a lot of shots although, I can't help my sassy remarks when I screw things up. 


 


The field itself isn't that great, I personally love the one in Senayan but sadly, it's under renovation. That saturday, I tried the one in Cempaka Putih since my coach is there for that weekend, the place wasn't so great but it's tolerable to shoot some arrow on the target. At the end, all is well.
