Flower Fairy4:22:00 PM
Haiiii, everybody :D!
How's your holiday (for Indonesian!)? I know lots of you been having a fun long weekend, haven't you? Me as well! I had a very fun but tiring day yesterday (since Saturday actually! plus all of the medications i'm still taking, stupid flu!)-which is my mum's birthday! I do have lots of stories to tell and celebration to blog about, but... I've been feeling exceptionally lazy lately T.T. I cannot even finish editing (which is still about cropping and resizing only, can you believe me zzz) a batch of haul post i was about to blog about on the weekend. Yeah, obviously weekend came and gone away already. Maybe tomorrow *lazy bum*.
The only thing i enjoy writing lately is this kind of outfit/make up entry, i really dunno why! #Undecided would testify how OCD i am about keeping this blog entries varies from one entry to another, but i am making an exception for this time! Because i really cannot wait to show you my (and hunny's) birthday celebration's look, and also because i really wanted to post something today but want it to be special enough to fit the festivities atmosphere we're drowning in lately *October is such a fun month always!*.
Haih, such a long explanation for a simple OOTD/FOTD/NOTD entry, then again nothing is ever simple with #Pink, right? Hahaha... So without further ado, here's the look for #Pink and Hunny's birthday celebration look!
|Trying to show off the make up and nail at one go, did i succeed?|
I mentioned it before that we (my BFFs and i) like having dresscodes on our birthday celebrations (except this year-which is very lacking, but i'm not about to skip it!). The idea of my birthday's dress code already hovered in my mind somewhere around June *LOL* and then i informed the girls a lot earlier too since none of them are as girly as me, so i had to give them a headstart!
I've been captivated by those flower crowns i saw lots of UK bloggers (from other countries as well i guess, it's just that i especially love UK bloggers for their style and mostly follow them. I don't think i follow a lot of American ones somehow) and always wanted one for myself. I don't really know how to handle the real flower crown (that perch on top of your head) because i'd be worrying of it falling off any time, so i was really happy when i saw a flower headband in BerryBenka.com with flowers dense and large enough to resemble those flower crowns i adore so much! It wasn't very cheap, IDR 100.000 (before shipping), but it's very rare to find in Indonesia (if you know where i can get a similar one with different flowers and colors-preferably the pastel ones-with reasonable price, do let me know please!) so i didn't think twice. Oh wait, i think i DID think twice and regret it when it disappeared from the site so as soon as it was re-stocked i ordered it right away (or it could be some other piece of accessories, you know i tend to mix things up...)
So once i got the headband, i knew i wanted to incorporate it into the dress code. I told my girls the dress code was floral at first, but then i changed my mind and told them it's floral head piece *LOL*. In the end i called the dress code "Flower Fairy", i was thinking they could come in a floral outfit and i can wear the flower headband (because the birthday girl should at least stand out a bit, no? LOL), but then i thought "No, i don't want to be the only one with flowers on her head! People will stare!", so that's why i really made them wear floral pieces on their heads lah hahaha :p.
Also because i'm always a fairy fan lah, if other little girls dreamed of being a Princess, i myself would much prefer to be a fairy. Beautiful, with iridescent wings and glitters coming out of my wand? I'm SOLD!
Here are the (new) stuffs i used for this look!
The product list in order of application :
|1. Mai Doll Dolly BB Cream (that i hauled here). The first Taiwan-made BB creme i've used which is very very nice! I love it! You can expect a review of this BB cream as well as the other stuffs in this entry in the future! (oh, i also used my usual concealers for under eyes and some redness under my chin)|
|Nude color for all over the lid, followed by mint on outer half of the lid, hot pink on the inner, purple on the crease and blue for waterline|
|Colored eye shadow under my eyes before eyeliner always makes me look super sleep deprived hahahahaha|
|4. Koji falsies (08) that i got from July BTI|
|The only catch was that it was pretty glossy so it can reflects lights on pictures, like this one! The eyeshadow color's more bold after i top them off for the third time haha, it was pretty long lasting though-so not bad for the price!|
|Oh, i almost forgot. Of course i put on blush on after this step, still using my Estee Lauder blush on that's expensive enough for me to want to save it for special occasion...|
|The colorful Flower Fairy! (used my usual Esprique Precious Double Shine Face Powder too as a highlight, i finally get the grip on finishing powders and been loving it a lot lately!)|
Not to forget the extra details!
|O.P.I Liquid Sands in NL M50 Pussy Galore (apparently from the Bond Girls Collection) which is amazing! Will be dedicating a blog post for this nail polish soon!|
And that's all! Get ready for my self-absorbed piccies!
|Super love this pic, looked very fairy-ish, no???|
|Shasha, do you recognize this? Hehe... I got this watch necklace as a part of a surprise birthday present from Shasha (who i invited to my dinner but sadly couldn't make it :(.. Maybe next year!) and i thought it was very suitable with my look (i do tend to mix up themes too, i probably mashed Fairy with Alice in the Wonderland this time...)|
|I love unique and quirky pieces (i have a red apple and old telephone shaped bags. Also a baby pink dog-those are some that i actually remember) so when i saw this clutch (also came in Hologram. I was so torn between the two but decided the black one's easier to match with my mostly pastel stuffs) i just gotta have it! I got it from the same online shop where i got my O.P.I for my NOTD! It's called Bubble Talk Shop, in case anyone's interested (i mentioned this shop because i'm a satisfied customer, they didn't sponsor me or anything okay!)|
|I was never interested to own this kind of watch-necklace, until i actually have one and now i'm in LOVE with it! Possibly my fave item out of the awesome box Shasha sent my way!|
|Swarovski ring i got from my Europe trip, finally have the heart to actually wear it hahaha|
That's my whole look for my birthday celebration (i still have another-a lot simpler one-dinner on Thursday!), i absolutely love how it ended up being i hope you like it too! Will be blogging about the dinner itself with #Undecided soon!
|A sneak peek!|
PS : Selamat Idul Adha for those who are celebrating!
