HIATUS

Hello there !
WXG Limited t-shirt - H&M beanie - Gaudi short

Wow, it's been a month i don't update my blog. That's my bad and i apologise :(
But as you can see i only update my instagram account because that's  the easiest way for me to connect with the readers (re : all of you).

Well, if you're asking why i don't update my blog because i had problems with my self. Actually not a big deal but it made me stop updating my blog for awhile. Hehe. Private stuffs :/
And anyway, my favorite photographers which are my parents, they are really busy right now, so it added more reasons why i don't blog lately. My mom just opened a little food stand in Jakarta, Manado cuisine. So yeah, tell me about how busy she is :(

And if you're asking what i've been doing lately, here we go, i'll tell you.

I just resigned from my uncle's office because i wanna have a job which related with my major at college, which is fashion design, or could be anything related with fashion. So, i decided to make my own brand which is delayed again right now. Too bad. Actually, at that time i felt bored with fashion.
So funny. But, do you ever feel that way ? Bored with something you love or something you passion about.

Few weeks ago i was assigned as a speaker at 5 high schools event with Kawanku Magazine and Maybelline New York. That was a cool experience. And actually i don't have a good ability to talk in front of many people, but learning by doing is the easiest way. I gave a presentation about teenage fashion in general and also the tips and trick how mix and match a cool outfits for teenage. May be i will post about this event on my next post.

Last week, i turned 23 yo. Wow ! Become older, i think there are more responsibilities which i have to take. I'm a clumsy person and sometime it becomes a bad impact for me and others around me. And i want to cut those bad habits, once again, learning by doing. Hopefully i can be a better person in the future. I can make my parents proud of what i'm doing.
My birthday was so special because i celebrated with my boyfriend. He played sweet things to me. And i was so happy. Beyond happy. He was nice and i appreciate every little things he did to me for making me happy :) At night, me, my family, and my boyfriend had dinner together at his restaurant.

Okay enough for this long talk.

Here are some cool songs for this gloomy days :

1. ZHU - Faded
2. Honne - The Night
3. The Twelves - When You Talk
4. The Twelves - Works For Me
5. Metric - Help I'm Alive (The Twelves Remix)
6. Porter Robinson - Sad Machine (Tut Tut Child Remix)
7. Chrome Sparks - Marijuana
8. MSMR - Hurricane
9. Young Franco - Brooklyn
10. Luke Million - Light and Sound (Young Franco Remix)

And here i wanna share my friend's Mixtape :

I Heart Summer by Arsugi Aryanto

Hope you enjoy these songs and enjoy our last month of the year :))

DREAM BUT DO NOT SLEEP

Halo everyone ?
How's it going ?
Time flies so fast, and i bet these phrase already said many times. It's October already, 2 months left and 2014 will find its end.
Talking about time, sometime i feel i dont appreciate much time i have.
Do you ever feel the same with me ?
Hopefully i can reach my dreams better by appreciating time which God already gave to me everyday.
And yess, if you follow me thru my instagram, now i'm working on my own clothing line brand. Just started last month, now it's on production phase and i wish it went well and would be accepted in this fashion industry. Just wait, it's coming soon :) *fingercrossed*

Anyway, i got this muscle tee from another local brand here, DCL Clothing . I love the statement words on it. "Dream but Do Not Sleep" . It's true tho. You can dream anything you want, but in order to reach your dreams, you must not sleep, otherwise you have to run, work, and pray for it !

And fyi, i just had addiction to bucket hat. And this one is my newest bucket hat from Locale Jakarta. This bucket hat is reversible, how cool is that.

FLOREALE

Hi there !
So sorry for the long hiatus of me. Well actually, i have so many stories to tell you.
Hmmm. Like i don't know where i have to start, lol.
First of all if you follow me on instagram i made a big decision for my body. Yup ! I got three new tattoos, on my right back and on my left hand. If you wanna see the details, just check them out at my instagram.
If you wanna ask, "how i got my parents' permission", actually quite hard. Well, they also got tattoed but parents are always be parents. Then finally, i got those ! *yeay*
Secondly, i resigned from my job. As you know i had job which was not my passion at all. But i appreciated my uncle to give me that job opportunity. I learnt how to earn money, more patience with your job, and interact with other people such as clients. For me there's no regrets. Everything happened for reasons.
And finally, i made that decision is because i want to continue what should i do in a long time ago after i graduated hehehe. Yup ! I want to focus on my own clothing brand. Hopefully it went well ! May be it sounds cheesy or cliche, but i really hope i could make my parents proud through this. Amen.
For more updates about my daily dose just follow my instagram @chrisnawatinovia

Anyway...
This is an old outfit post again. I supposed to post it last month but didnt have a chance.
So, the outfits are still in floral theme again. As you see, my hair was still in turquoise. *FYI, my hair is blue right now, lol*

I wore Topshop cropped top, i mixed it up with my floral skirt that i bought at Metro Department Store. Aaannd, another flower crown. I'm addicted to floral crown you know, hehehe.
