Pieces Of Me: January 2013

This post isn't beauty related. You may skip this post and come back later if you want to read about beauty review. thank you :)

January will be over in very close time, and I just realized I rarely talked about my daily life lately. I made this blog to store my memories that's why today I will talk about my life. This will be a long story, sorry if you bored.

Early January.. I had to cancel my family trip (which had already planned from last year) because some "family-matters-reason". I'm very dissapointed at that time and I also very angry with my parents because all I want to do is to make them happy but in the end everything are destroyed because a simple reason.

On January 12th, my grandmother was passed away. She is the only grandmother that I had and now she's gone too (May She rest in peace). This moment make me realize that, God has a plan. You know, I supposed to go to holiday trip with my family on January 13th. If the initial reason (see poin 1) doesn't occured , I still can't go to the trip. So, basicly me and my family aren't destined to go this month.
Ps~ thanks to Sabrina who come to my grandmother funeral.

On January 17th, the most freaking moment in my life which makes my life span reduced for 20years! I was accused for a lost cheque worth for IDR 100.000.000 (count the zero number~) it is worth $10.000 (I guess~ I'm bad with currency). Technically, it is me who forgot where I put that stupid cheque... But, I've already check every parts on my table/cabinet/etc but I can't found it. So, I asked my fellow friend (who had the cheque before me) if she forget that she didn't gave me the cheque. But she insisted that she already gave me that cheque and hide behind my precious signature. I just realized how precious is my signature during that accident. I know it was my mistake because I signed the paper without double checked it with the cheque. I completely forgot about that. But, what I asked for help is, to search the cheque whether she still had it or not. And my friend (who I thought is nice, great, my mentor, the first person i met in this office) doesn't even move her finger to help me and insist that me is the only person who need to be blamed.

Okay~ day 1 end.
Next day, another friend asked me to start searching again. and here we go another searching on my table (which I think really worthless! I know my stuff, I know my memory, and I believe the cheque is on the next table! my friend's table). It was ended with no result (like I've predicted before). By the end of the day, I asked for an envelope from my friend (yes, the one that had the cheque before me). She had 2 different envelope, small and big, on her CPU, on her table, next to her face. and guess what's inside the envelope? The lost cheque. How I wish I can capture her expression at that time! She looks scared and you know what happened next? she insisted that I gave her that envelope (with the cheque in it).

Seriously, at that moment I want to yell at her, curse her, hit her or anything bad I can do. She is the one who forgot about that cheque and in the end she still doesn't confess and still accused me. I try to calm myself. the other people in that room who evidenced that situation, realize the same thing with me.

How come she (my friend, who insisted that I'm the wrong person, that she already gave me the cheque, that bring my signature everywhere like its the most precious thing she had in this world, that said she remembered clearly she already gave me that cheque) has the cheque on her table and very very close to her face! Even my boss was very surprissed with this situation. My boss tought that the cheque was found on my table. I said no, it is not on my table. It is on my friend's table.

I've learn from this accident, that money REALLY can change people A LOT. I know it is a large amount for her that's why she scared and put the blame on me. But...I do scared too. and she is much older than me like twice of my age. At least she need to help me with the searching or think about another solution. But all she do was accused me.
Why can the cheque can't be found on day 1, when the "hiding place" is really in front of her face? Simple answer, because she didn't search it. She insisted that the cheque was on my table and not hers. That's why she didn't need to move her fingers to do searching on her table.

I can't believe that situation. I'm VERY VERY DISAPPOINTED, ANGRY, and feels disgusted with her actions. She didn't talked to me after that. a simple sorry will do for me (at least to cure a little of my big heartache) but she didn't do it.

Helooo.. what's hard to say this sentences to me?
"Shasha, I'm really sorry. Looks like it's me who forgot where I put the cheque"

done. not even need 5 minutes to say those sentences. and no, she didn't said that.
Lesson Learned~ don't trust people if that including money.

January 23rd.. I woke up with a strange feeling, like I forgot something. and I was right... I forgot my best friend's birthday for 3 days! hikz. His birthday was on January 20th and I congratulated him on January 23rd. What kind of friend I am?  I feel bad for him, I never forget his bday since 8 years ago, but this year I completely forget :( maybe because I had a problem before the 20th.


January 25th, BF's birthday~ Happy birthday my baby~ I love you so much <3  I can't meet with BF at that time, because he was very busy with his schedule. But I meet him the day before and the day after 25th. We celebrated his bday by having a dinner and watch cinema. 

January 29th~ the end of the month. The payday! I got an increase in salary~ yay!

I can't believe so many things happened in this month. Though it is not a very good month for me, I still thanks god that I can passed this month. I hope the next month will be a better month for me.

Thanks for reading this super long post (though, I don't think there are any readers for this post he5). Sorry If I talk too much :p I'll back again with another beauty related post~ soon.

Gogirl! Magazine January Issue

Halo teman-teman,
Kali ini aku akan menulis tentang sesuatu yang berbeda dari biasanya. Jika biasanya aku membahas tentang produk kecantikan, maka kali ini aku akan membahas tentang sebuah majalah. Majalah ini bukan majalah biasa, melainkan salah satu beauty magazine yang wajib aku miliki setiap bulannya. Kali ini reviewku adalah mengenai Go girl! magazine edisi Januari 2013.


Sudah hampir 1 tahun aku membaca majalah gogirl! dan selama ini aku belum pernah kecewa dengan isi majalah ini. Majalah go girl! selalu mengangkat issue-issue yang sedang booming di kalangan anak muda, oleh karena itu, menurutku majalah ini sangat cocok sekali bagi remaja-remaja yang aktif. Kembali pada review majalahnya~

Pada bulan Januari ini, gogirl! memasang Kelsey Chow sebagai wajah utama di sampul depan majalahnya. Who is she? here is a little spoiler for you~


But..... the main reason why I love this edition isn't because that lovely girl~ Setiap bulannya gogirl! magazine selalu mengangkat issue-issue baru yang dijadikan tema utama. Nah, pada bulan Januari ini tema yang diangkat adalah mengenai "Pop Writing Issue". It's all about writing~ lalalala. Buat aku yang sekarang lagi suka-sukanya nge-blog, issue ini sangat membantu sekali karena semakin membuka wawasanku mengenai dunia "tulis-menulis". Berikut ini beberapa hal yang dibahas di dalam gogirl! magazine edisi Januari.


Di sini kita diberi tips-tips mengenai bagaimana menulis yang baik dan benar, selain itu kita juga diberi panduan mengenai model-model dari creative writing~ yang mana salah satunya adalah melalui media Blog.

Some advice from famous writers~
Kapan lagi nih kita dapat tips-tips dari penulis yang uda terkenal di Indonesia secara cuma-cuma :D

Bingung pingin nerbitin buku atau tidak? Cek tabel di atas yang sudah dirangkumin oleh gogirl! magazine. Kelebihan dan kekurangan masing-masing sudah dibahas dengan lengkap dan rapi dalam bentuk tabel :)

Selain topik utama mengenai pop writing yang sudah aku bahas di atas, di setiap edisinya gogirl! tidak akan melupakan kebutuhan utama perempuan~ what is that? Tentunya adalah fashion and beauty! Berikut beberapa artikel tentang kecantikan yang ada di edisi Januari~

 Makeup tutorial by Miss Hanna Anindhita~ one of IBB's admin :)

And the latest trend~





Soo... secara keseluruhan aku sangat suka membaca majalah ini karena isinya yang berbobot dan selalu menarik. Selain itu yang dibahas sangat lengkap, mulai dari issue sehari-hari di sekitar kita sampai berita-berita terkini dari luar dan dalam negeri. Dan tidak lupa pula mengenai fashion and beauty stuffnya.

Okay, that's all my little review about this magazine~ yang masih penasaran mengenai isi lainnya dari majalah ini bisa membeli di toko buku terdekat :) dan buat teman-teman yang bercita-cita jadi penulis atau yang punya hobby tulis-menulis, make sure you don't miss this edition! or you will regret it :)

Bye~

Review: Etude House Silk Scarf Repair Hair Essence

Do you have thick and heavy hair? 
Do you often experience a bad hair day? 
Do you have dry and unhealthy hair?
If you don't, then be gratefull~ I envy you so much then~lol

Actually all of the questions above are my main problems :( I have thick, dry, and unhealthy hair. I use hair mask once a week to help soften my lion hair. I want to use hair mask everyday (can't I? don't know the effect if I use it everyday) but I don't have time to do such a "complete-hair-washing-routine" everyday. The last time I visited Etude House counter at Jayanata, I spot this little essence at the display. Because I got a voucher to shop Etude House products, I decided to grab this essence and try it on my hair~

About:
Silk Scarf Repair Hair Essence is a concentrated essence specially formulated with oil complex and floral scent to coat split ends and deliver shine and long lasting moisturization, leaving hair instantly looking healthier, silkier and smoother.

Ingredients:

Price/Amount: IDR 68.8K / 60 ml

Packaging: It comes with a plastic bottle with a pump. The color is transparent red with polkadot and ribbon decorations. The bottle height is around 15cm (quite small so it is easy to carry on).

Texture: This essence's texture is a thick transparent gel. The scent is really fragrant! The nicest hair essence I've ever tried. It smells like flower (though I don't know what kind of flower). The essence is a little sticky when I pour it a little on my hand. After massages it on my hair, it makes my hair super soft and smells good.

TIPS: Apply a little amount from the middle of the hair to the ends of your hair. Do not apply at the scalp area because it will makes your hair greasy. You can use it on wet hair or dry hair. Usually I use it on wet hair then blow dry it or let it dry naturally. When I want to use hair straightening iron, I also apply this essence to protect my hair from the heat.

Pros:
Cute bottle and affordable price
The scent is nice flowery scent
It helps to makes my hair feels soft and easy to styling

Cons:
I need a larger amount~ though I love the cute tiny packaging, It will be better to have this essence in larger bottle.
Can't be applied on scalp area or it will makes your hair greasy

Review: Revlon Colorburst Lip Butter

I'm sure you're already familiar with this name. This product was a popular product in beauty market last year. Many beauty bloggers already made review about this product. Eventhough I'm quite late to join the crowd, please read my review about this product :)
About the product:
- Hydrating mango, shea and coconut butter formula boosts lip moisture by 156%
- Pampering gel formula provides super charged hydration and glides on lips buttery smooth
- Sheer to medium colour with buttery shine
- Available in 20 luscious shades

Packaging: The main color for the cap is pink (because my shade is strawberry shortcake. the packaging color is based on the shade color) and black color for the bottom packaging. To open the cap, I need to pull it upward and it is quite difficult at first. Because, the connector between the top packaging and the bottom packaging is quite low.If I need to use ratio to describe the packaging, it is like 4:1 (top : bottom), not really propotional :p


Available shades: There are many shades for this lipstick, if you want to check all the color you can click here. My shade is strawberry shortcake. It is a pale pink color.

Price: IDR 75K, but I only paid IDR 15k for this baby because I got few vouchers from BF at that time.

Swatch: 
Like I've mentioned before, the color is pale pink with a little glossy effect. The color doesn't really "stands out" for me. If you need a more "pink" color, you need to apply several layers. The staying power is so-so, like the other lips product. If you don't eat heavy food/drink it will stays perfectly for 2 or 3 hours. Also it is quite moisturise. Considering the name is Lip butter, I think it really does its job to make my lips moist and not dry. The texture is very buttery~ it is very soft and spreads easily on my lips.





Pros:
Moisturise enough and easy to spreads on my lips
Available in many colors
You can easily identify the lisptick color through the packaging color
Quite affordable and can be found easily in local department store

Cons:
The packaging is quite difficult to open
The color is quite sheer for this shade

Have you tried this product? What do you think about it? :D

Review: Lioele Dollish Triple Eyeshadow

Lately I'm a little obsessed with eyeshadow he5. You know, I'm bad at apply eyesahdow. But, recently I download many video tutorial from youtube about how to apply eyeshadow he5. Eventhough I'm still amateur, I try my best to create a new FOTD every week. Today I will share a little review about one of my  eyeshadow. This product is Lioele Dollish Triple Eyeshadow. I bought this since 2 or 3 months ago but never touch it until recently~ ha5 *my bad~ only bought many things and let it neglect in my makeup stash*
 

About the product:  
This is the perfect palette for an entire makeup look that is both beautiful yet compact. Each combination of colors were specially designed to compliment one another to draw attention to your eyes. Use all colors together or individually, its up to you! It also comes with a small mirror under the top lid to ensure your application. Terracotta process based colorful eye shadow provides less blowing powders with good skin adhesion and boasts luxurious colors of pearls. Glittering fine pearl for elegant eye finish. Quick and easy eye makeup without smudging. (source: here)



Ingredients:
Mica, CI 77891, CI 7742, CI 77510, CI 77499, CI 77492, Talc, Hydroxypropyl Starch Phosphate, Hexyl Laurate, CI 77491, CI 77289, CI 77288, CI 77019, CI 77007, Perfume, Methylpolysiloxane, CI 77003, CI 15850, Cetyl PEG/PPG-10/1 Dimethicone, Dimethicone, Water, Magnesium Aluminum Silicate, Methyl Paraben, Magnesium Octadecanoate, Butylparaben, Aluminum Starch, Octenylsuccinate, CI 77489, CI 77019, Brassica Campestris (Rapeseed) Seed Oil, CI 77000, Cornus Officinalis Fruit Extract, Schizandra Chinensis Fruit Extract, Lycium Chinense Fruit Extract, Morus Alba Fruit Extract, Rubus Coreanus Fruit Extract, Pinus Koraiensis Seed Extract, Prunus Tomentosa Fruit Extract, Juglans Regia (Walnut) Seed Extract

My Shade: #1. Pink Gray

Packaging: 
The packaging is a round shape glossy pink jar with Lioele's symbol embossed on the top of the packaging. I believe this eyeshadow comes with a box packaging and an applicator. But, I bought this as a pre-loved item (which means, this is second hand) and I didn't got any box or applicator. Except that, the condition is still perfect.


Swatch:
In 1 packaging contains 3 different color (pink, white, and black). The color is okay for me. Not really pigmented but not really sheer too. The glitters on this eyeshadow also acceptable~ not really to much.


TIPS: 
Use eyeshadow base / BB Cream / Eye cream before you apply eyeshadow to enhance the color and make the eyeshadow stays longer on your eyelids

Pros:
I love the packaging. It is pink and cute, I believe all the girls will fell for this packaging
It also contains 3 different color in each of the packaging.
There are various colors selection~ I want to try them all~
The texture isn't really powdery and the glitters aren't too much.
I got this for a cheap price

Cons:
For the pink color, I need to apply several times to achieve the nice color. I just wish the pink color is more pigmented.
It is quite pricey if you buy it on normal price

Paint My Nails: 3D Flower~

Hi, sorry for have been MIA for a while. Last week I had an unfortunate event so I can't blogged about anything. Actually I've already have some posts on my drafts but I still haven't edited the photos. Now, that I've already have some leisure time, I will share a new post for you. Since earlier this month, I decided to make a new series for my blog. And for this week, I have a new post named "Paint My Nails", this post will consist my NOTD or nail polish swatch. I'm planning to do this post once every 2 weeks, I hope I can do it.
Today, on the first "Paint My Nails" series, I will share about my NOTD. Please note that I'm not a nail blogger so I can't do any difficult nail art. I even don't have long nails he5. But, I'll try my best to bring you a nice nail art pictures.

For today, my NOTD is combination between gold nail polish and 3D Flower sticker. Actually at first I want to use "Golden Flower" as my blog post title, but I change my mind because the golden color doesn't really show up in the pictures.

I use my sasatinnie nail polish as a base. I use 2 coats of it. The color is soft gold with a little glitters. After that I use 3D nail stickers.

and here are the results!




 Zoom in~ my thumbnail!

Thanks for reading~ and see you soon :D

Review: The Skin Food Tomato Cool Jelly Tint

Hi girls~ If you happen to lived in Indonesia and being active at Facebook, you maybe know about one of beauty group called "Komunitas Make up and Beauty Indonesia". Last month, Stella Lee (the administrator of the group) made an event called charity sales. Basicly, everything that you bought from the sales will go to the charity. Everyone can participated as seller or buyer. I was participated as a buyer~ ( I love shopping especially when the price is cheap :p). One of the product that I bought is The Skin Food Tomato Cool Jelly Tint.


About the product:
Tomato cool jelly tint is a water based gel type tint containing tomato extract and rose water, that is full of moisture and nutrition. It offers glossy pastel colors that give you full, natural looking lips with a moist, healthy shine.

 Available colors: 
Cherry Tomato, Berry Tomato, and Orange Tomato

My color: Cherry Tomato

Price/amount:
 I got this for IDR 20K (it is new product! thanks to charity sales~) / 10 ml

The Packaging:
It comes with a small plastic tube paickaging and an applicator. The tube's shape is heart~ I love it so much because it is more appealing than normal tube shape. And also it reminds me of potion's bottle in video game.
 Swatch:



The textures are soft and fluffy~ well, you can notice by the name that, this product has jelly texture. When I use it on my lips, It's give me a little cool sensation. This tint also has a slightly sweet scent~ Because this is a lip tint, you don't need to apply to much because it will makes you look like a clown. Because the texture is quite watery, I only need a small amount of this tint to get a nice red lips~ 

TIPS: apply small amount on the middle of the lips then blends it with your finger. After that apply lipgloss to all over the lips to achieve a nice gradient color and shiny lips.


Pros:
Nice color~ (just remember don't use too many)
Unique texture~
It doesn't makes my lips dry~ this tint is quite moisturize because it is water based
No weirds scent and cute packaging!
I doesn't dries faster like the other liptint (I've tried Tony Moly tint before and it is dries really fast and it is quite difficult to blends and removes once it dry)

Cons:
Tasted bitter on my lips after several hours. I tried to lick my lips and I can taste a bitter taste on my lips :( I'm quite dissapionted because I thought it will taste sweet like the scent or at least tasteless.

Overall, I think this tint is okay and wearable for everyday. I love the texture because it is quite watery. Have you try this product? What do yo think about this product?
