After the cold gloomy winter, you can't imagine how happy I was when the sun finally shine so bright and warm in the other part of Europe, to be exact it's Lisbon. Even I feel the coat was a bit too much in Lisbon afternoon, but perfect for the chilled night weather. I love this coat as it adds a clean, tailored and sleek look to the whole outfit. And I know I use this purse like in most of my posts, but honestly I don't really carry much stuffs in my purse and I only bring few bags to this trip for my shopping purpose (fit more stuffs!). 

My first impression of Portugal was, wow. The architecture is totally different than the other parts of Europe. The streets are steep, colorful buildings and houses and my favorite part is the Belém district. This is probably the most touristic place in Lisbon, but I can see why. The view is astonishing (from the bridge picture). I was recommended by the hotel receptionist to visit the famous Pastéis de Belém (in the Belém district too). I am seriously addicted to this custard tart or pastel de nata! According to the story, only three people know the secret recipe to this perfection. So make sure to visit this place when you are in the city.

I have developed a huge love towards beauty products. Apart from the eyeliner and Urban Decay's Naked palette, these are some of my go-to products for my everyday make up.

This bottle last me for like forever! I started using this a year ago when I had acne problems and some post-acne marks to cover. It does the work AMAZINGLY. 

I apply it after the foundation to keep it stay and not melting for the whole day. It is transparent in color but I feel like it gives the fresh dewy effect to my face. Bonus!

I FALL IN LOVE WITH THIS. ENOUGH SAID. Especially during the winter days to add that "fake tan" look on your face and no shimmer. Not to mention it gives the slim effect to the cheeks. 

I was curious with the raves and I am not disappointed. I love Gilda shades because it doesn't have shimmery effect like the famous shade, Orgasm. Plus it has that coral red color perfect pairing with the bronzer. With the pricey price, it lasted me a long time.

THIS IS ESSENTIAL. Even to my "no-makeup" look. I believe eyebrow is the most vital part of face, it frames and give definition to the face. I can't live without this. Period. 

This is the mascara cult. It does thicken and lengthen my lashes perfectly because of the color intensity.

I always get compliment when I am using this one. The matte effect gives me that perfect Kylie Jenner's pout. When in hurry just put this one. And trust me the name says it all, you will feel Sultry. 

Good girls know lip liner is the secret to the perfect and more defined lip. This color matches perfectly to the Revlon Sultry lip balm. Promise me to get these both in pair!

9. Chanel lipstick in Effrontee 
This is the perfect rose color for everyday occasion. When in doubt I always use this one. I tried to find one in several European duty frees and I could not find it. I guess they have stopped producing this one :(

Happy Sunday everyone!

It is no wonder that Milan is a great shop destination for fashionistas around the world. Asides from the endless boutiques options, beautiful Italian leather, and freshly made Gelato on hand, a smart shopper like me will not miss out the irresistible price compared to ones in my home country. I directly headed to the famous cathedral, Duomo di Milano. There are a lot of shops to choose, from H&M to Prada in the nearby Galleria Vittorio Emanuele II. I had such wonderful time strolling around and ended up in Via Montenapoleone, Via della Spiga, Via Manzoni where most of the well-known designers have their boutiques. My mom had such high expectation for getting the Birkin bag in the skin and color she wanted in the city, yet she could not find it. What a bummer for her! However, lucky me I got my Céline bag here. At first I had my doubt between the Trapeze or Phantom Luggage and I decided to get the Trapeze instead because it is more versatile and I can just style it like how I want it.  Plus my dad who takes security very seriously thought the Phantom Luggage would be very unsafe for me to put my stuffs in, as there is no zipper inside. To all the guys out there, to safe you from the argument with your girl, you should note fashion to girl is not merely about function but how cute they are on us ;) 

Romantic. Mysterious. Bohemian. Three words I will use to describe the capital city of Czech Republic. There is something about the city of Prague that gives you the feeling you are walking straight out a 1920s movie, especially with the barely-touched centuries old architectures of the city. Without sounding like a Lonely Planet guide book,  I wanted to share my day trip in this incredible city. I started my day strolling around the Mala Strana district. As I made my way up to the Prague Castle complex, I passed many shops selling souvenirs like absinthe, gems, etc. The Prague Castle is positioned in the high region of the city where it offers amazing 360 degree view of the city from top. I could not even be bothered with the ridiculously cold and windy weather that day because the view. Wow. I have never seen such beautiful city. It was exactly like the background for Disney's medieval movies. Again, wow. Then, I thought to myself, what could be better than this? The answer directly came in the form of a bowl of warm beef goulash and Czech's traditional food, roasted rabbit and stuffed duck breast in wine sauce with assorted pancakes, bread, red white cabbages and my favorite steamed potato dumpling! It was delicious and perfect for the weather. After a glass of Pilsner Urquell beer (the Czech's beer), I continued my journey walking along the iconic Charles Bridge which connects the Mala Strana and Old Town. The Old Town is home to some of the points of interests in Prague like the astronomical clock and some high end boutiques. In the evening, I went for the boat trip cruising down the river accompanied with a cup of tea and warm slice of chocolate cake. As the city's lights are on, I saw my parents cuddled, how I wish I had someone with me. Prague, I'm in love.

Last winter holiday I went for a one month Europe trip with my parents, which I will say unbelievably fun and amazing opportunity to spend time with my parents while checking some places (and Birkin hunting). It is no wonder to the family that my mom is a globe trotter. She loves to travel and when she does it, she makes sure she will not miss out any places. The first destination in our Europe itinerary is Amsterdam, Netherlands. I have always heard of good things about this city and it is true. The city is divided by many canals and what amazed me is the massive amount of bikes in the city. I have never seen such developed city where people still ride bikes in such cold temperature. Europe is never lacking of museums and if you do like it, a visit to Rijksmuseum is a must. This grand museum is home to many famous paints by Rembrandt, Hals and Vermeer. The advantage of travelling during December is of course the Christmas market. Hot waffles, poffertjes, hot chocolates and mulled wines are some of the food served. Amazing! As for the shopping part, there are many local shops around Jordaan district, high end brands around Museum district (near Rijksmuseum), high street brands in the Kalverstraat and Leidsestraat. While, De Bijenkforf is arguably the most famous department store in the city.

These photos were taken from a trip to Rijksmuseum in Amsterdam. Not exactly the museum, but the small garden in front of it. The garden is very beautiful and well taken care of. The weather was a bit chilly but still manageable for me to wear this kind of outfit. The interior of the museum was amazing. It was very huge and there were different kind of objects inside, from the Rembrandt paintings to the modern art  installations. My personal favorite is the Indonesian history room. As an Indonesian, the history of the Netherlands who once colonized my country is very captivating. In the room I can see how Indonesia looked like during the period from paintings. It was very painful to see how people were treated back then. However as I learnt more on the story of how my country fought for its independence, I never feel that proud of my own country and the bravery of our heroes. 

Welcome to the new 5 Minutes of Fame. As you can see there will be a mix of fashion, beauty and lifestyle to this blog. I want to say hello from Leeds, a city that is just two-hours train ride from London. Life has been very good to me and I am blessed to have the chance to study abroad. Just a short introduction to Leeds, it is your normal British city. Red bricks buildings, pubs in the corner of the streets, fish and chips, shopping centre and green landscapes. London on the other hand is different. If I were given the chance to describe London. I would say the weather. It can be perfectly sunny in the morning and out of sudden there is a huge rain in the afternoon. Despite the unpredictable, I love how multicultural and energetic the city is. I fell in love with how people dressed when they walked past me. Bold and dynamic. I think I have to learn more from the Londoners on how to add more patterns and colors to my winter minimalist look. Honestly, I can't wait for the summer to come so that I can be more experimental with my looks. So, keep reading the blog to see more adventures to come.
