Confessions Of A Shoe-A-Holic

it's holiday so i update my blog more often! hehe.. another tag thing that i got from juicystar07.. you can do this too if you want. it's fun. :D
P.S. If you're looking for coupons for shoes, please check out that link!

some of my collection

1. Heels or Flats?
- Heels all the way! but there are times that my feet hurts from using heels too much, though..

2. What are your go-to shoes?
- i'm still in uni and i don't like to use heels to campus, so my go-to shoes are flats from pla.

3. What's your favorite shoe trend at-the-moment?
- err.. actually i don't really put attention to shoe trends..

4. What's your least favourite shoe trend?
- hmm, my least fave shoe trend.. i think it's flatforms. you know flatforms? something that looks like these:

they don't elongate your legs. the reason why i like heels more than flats because i need to make my legs longer so they'll look slimmer. flatforms only give more height which i don't need because i think i'm tall enough. so yeah, flatforms are just not for me.

5. What's your most expensive shoe?
- i think it's Niluh Djelantik's.. flat sandals with bronze/gold color.. pictures later, ok? i'm gonna have a blogpost about my shoes, just wait ;)

6. What are your most wanted pair?
- Brian Atwood's Maniac in Nude Patent!!

7. What's your most embarrassing shoe story?
- can't remember any.. sorry

8. Pick a shoe and share a story.
- i planned to do a blogpost on every single shoes that i have (i will put stories there too) so i'm not gonna answer this question right now. :)

9. How many pairs of shoes do you own?
- oh well.. it's kinda hard.. i think it's about 25 pairs..

10. When was the first time you wore heels?
- i can't remember! hahaha. as long as i can remember the first time i wear something high was when i'm at 4th or 5th grade. i wore very tall wedges from a brand called GOSH. the wedges has some polkadots, me and my sister have the same wedges in diffe
rent colours. mine were light blue and white, hers were black and white.

11. How much do you spend on shoes?
- most of my shoes are under IDR300k (its about US$30), but as long as it's under IDR500k i still could buy them if i really want to.

12. Where are your favorite places to buy shoes?
- i don't really have fave shops.. i buy shoes everywhere as long as i like them :p

13. Do you have a pair of shoes you regret purchasing?
- hmm.. i think it's my Niluh Djelantik sandals that i mentioned before. it was impulsive, hahaha. i'm not a sandal girl. so i'm not gonna use them very often like other shoes.. but i still think it's perfect for beach walk so i'm gonna keep it hehe

14. Show your favorite pair of shoes.
- my Niluh Djelantik Sasha Ballet Flats in Black Suede! these flats are from real suede inside out. they're really soft and comfy. too bad these babies are not cheap, they are about US$100 per pair. i swear if Niluh Djelantik throw a sale on these type of shoes again, i'll buy some more..

The Holly Jolly Holiday Tag

a few weeks ago i was strolling randomly at youtube and find this very beautiful girl named Blair Fowler. once i found her channel (and her vlog channel) i can't stop watching her videos. she talks really fast and sometimes rambles on her videos and i find it funny! like an hour ago she just did a christmas themed tag video and i think it's really interesting. since i don't do vlogs, so i decided to do the tag here. :D
umm, actually i don't celebrate christmas, but i loooove the feel that christmas brings every year. well whatever. i think i watched Blair's video too much, i start to ramble random things haha..
so here we go! eh by the way i tagged all of you who read this to do this, okay?

1. Favorite Christmas Movie?
i don't have one. haha. seriously, i'm not a big fan of movie so i don't really have favourites.

2. Are you on the Naughty list or the Nice list?
of course i hope i'm on the nice list! i think nobody would want to be on the naughty list

3. Show us an embarrassing Christmas Card photo! (WE KNOW YOU HAVE ONE OK)
i swear i don't have one! hahaha. as far as i can remember i never have the "proper" photo shoot on christmas card.

4. Have you ever had a White Christmas?
nope. i live in Indonesia and it's sunny all year long.

5. Where do you usually spend your holiday?
it's home most of the time.

6. Play or Sing your favorite Christmas Song!
i like almost all of christmas song! like santa claus is coming to town, Mary's boy child, the first noel, joy to the world, etc. but i think for this year, my most favourite one is santa claus is coming to town.

7. Do you open any presents on Christmas Eve?
since my family don't celebrate christmas, i don't get presents for christmas.

8. Can you name all of Santa's reindeer?
oh well.. dancer (or dasher? or they're both different reindeer? i really have no idea), vixen, rudolph, prancer.. i once tried to remember santa's reindeer but i never really tried, hahaha.

9. What holiday tradition are you looking forward to most this year?
i don't really have traditions for christmas..

10. Is your Christmas tree real or fake?
fake. it's really hard to find real christmas tree here in my country. but even if it's easy, i think i'll stick to the fake one because the real one will need to be thrown away after a couple of days..

11. Hands down, what's your all-time favorite holiday food and holiday sweet treat?
well i don't have special holiday food.. but i like chocolates esp Cadbury for lazy days

12. Be Honest: do you like giving gifts or receiving gifts better?
receiving gifts all the waaaay!

13. Show us your tackiest Christmas attire (ex: Ugly Sweater)
i don't have particular attire for christmas.. hehe.. actually i want a santa costume i think it would be a waste if i spend money on something i won't really wear. but i also want a santa hat or reindeer headband, maybe i'll buy it later :D

14. What would be your dream place to visit for the holiday season?
umm, never really think about it.. France maybe. or Japan.

15. Does your family have a special holiday recipe you like to help make?
as i said before i don't really celebrate christmas so there's no special recipes.

16. Are you a pro-present wrapper, or do you fail miserably?
i'm a pro wrapper, baby! not a pro that i can make flower from ribbons or something like that. but i can wrap things neatly.

17. Most memorable Holiday moment?
hmm.. my christmas in china maybe. i forgot that the day was christmas day! hahaha. you don't feel any christmas spirit in china you know. there are decorations, of course. but the christmas day itself is just the same with few days before.

18. What made you realize the truth about Santa?
the internet. lol

19. Do you make New Years Resolutions? Do you stick to them?
i never really make resolutions. even if i make resolutions, i'm going to forget them approximately 4 days after i make it. hahaha.

20. What makes the Holidays special for you?
oh the lovely lazy daaaaaays~

hey christmas is right around the corner! oh my gosh. will try to take photos in front of my christmas tree hehe.. these photos are taken a while ago, when i didn't need to use my glasses. yeah, since a week ago i need to leave my contacts and use glasses instead because next week i'll need to check my eyes and do LASIK (please click on the word if you don't know what's lasik). hopefully the little surgery will run smoothly so i don't need to use glasses or contacts again. :D
till then, see you guys! :)

peanut butter

i found this video when i'm looking for scarf ideas on youtube, i just knew that you can remove sticky residue from your shoes using peanut butter! it's amazing, i think. only recommended for polished sole, though. after i watched the video i googled about that and tadaaaa, you can use anything greasy, not only peanut butter. you can use ordinary butter (which i don't recommend since it's quiet pricey), margarine, eucalyptus oil, or even the usual cooking oil. i think this is interesting, haha. i love finding new easy and applicable tips and tricks. :D

Being Lazy

nope, i'm not dead. haha. i'm just too lazy and feel like there's nothing to share so i don't write anything here. hehe.. i can't sleep now and i was blog-walking so i think i'm gonna write something here. :)
just little updates about current life. actually i'm in my uni holiday, a two-months holiday. but i'm doing my internship (i need to do an internship to graduate from uni). and because i'm doing it now (it's been one and a half month, 2 more weeks to go!), it means that next semester will be (hopefully) my last semester in undergraduate program. the only thing that i'm really afraid of is the thesis. sigh. i don't understand why undergraduate program in Indonesia requires thesis. i have no idea what my thesis will be, i even don't have any idea about the topic. haaaaaah. well let's just hope for the best. :p
oh by the way, i just made a food blog a few weeks ago. i don't write much about the food but i hope it helps. :D please click HERE to visit (of course i don't insist you to click, just click if you want to) oh i almost forgot, it's written in english and indonesian. just some random ramblings actually. hehe.
well i don't know what to say more. thanks for reading. *actually i don't think there's anyone who reads this post since there are too many words and it's all about my boring life. hahaha.*
see you on the next post. hopefully not a boring one. :D

Quote of the day

"How do you expect kids to listen to their parents? Tarzan lives half naked, Cinderella comes back home at midnight, Pinocchio lies all the time, Aladdin is the king of thieves, Batman drives at 320 KM/h, Sleeping beauty is lazy, and Snow White lives with 7 guys. We shouldn’t be surprised when kids misbehave, they get it from their storybooks."
-Elissa Yamada's Facebook Status

dress up or dress down?

@glister_blister's tweet (RT-ed from @beckyregina) makes me think a bit. when we dress down, i cannot deny that i'll feel inferior or too common and not comfortable with this too-common-feeling (i don't know about others but i feel this way). when we dress up, there's ALWAYS some people who keep looking at us from top to bottom and up again like we're using something weird or not proper. but hey, be positive, maybe they keep looking at us because we're giving them inspiration or maybe they just envy us (over-confident detected. :p)

well, i think that it's really depends on us after all! if you wanna dress up, then do! i mean you can't make all people happy, isn't it? it's their right to keep looking at us, but it is our right too, to ignore them. in my opinion, it's better to be over-dressed than under-dressed. but in my case, there are times that i don't feel like i wanna dress up but i don't wanna look ordinary. you know, i'm a super lazy girl soooo i take things that i've used before. yeah, i can use the same outfit (with exactly same pieces) over and over again. hahaha.

and i think the conclusion of my ramblings are just wear what you want to, what makes you feel comfortable, life is the runway, right? don't need to over think what people will say. but of course do not forget the occasion. :)

a little post

well yeah so this post is just to make sure that my blog is alive. haha.. no photos attached on this post because i'm too lazy to take pics, haha.

yesterday i went to Fashion Blogger Yard Sale on Mazee, fX. the bazaar was packed! i got skinny scarf from Michelle's Charlotte's Closet that i've been eye-ing since she uploaded the photo on facebook and Only I's black blazer with heart-shaped hole on the back. by the way, Michelle looks prettier in real life and Cindy from DIAMONDHURTS looks really stylish! the other blogger are fab too. super love! :D

then i went to Plaza Indonesia to eat Sushi Tei. my friends are sushi freak, haha. me? not really. i'm too greedy, i like all kind of food and i can't decide which food is my fave. :p
i bought Venus Maxi Dress from Cotton Ink at The Goods Dept too. actually i wanna go there on friday but too bad i was still have a final exam. they have 20% discount for BNI Credit Card holder on friday! :( but yeah, it's still okay. the maxi dress is really cool! it makes me look slimmer, hehe.. and somehow it's hard for me to find the perfect maxi dress because usually they're too short for me. but Cotton Ink's maxi got the perfect length!

it's been a while since the last time i bought stuffs on the spot, i do online shopping these past days. the feel is different! i don't know about you all but i feel happier shopping on the spot. haha..

i went there with Inez, Agus, Octa, and Vani (my not-so-lil sis). it's been a while since last time i hang out with the team, it's fun!
