Scheherazade Told Me

No need to follow some kind of long tutorial on "How to Make a Middle Eastern Style Headpiece by Yourself" this time. Finding out that I'd been keeping a black band with gold thread woven gave me an idea to combine it with my brand new necklace to simply make one. Only needed to tie the band around my head and added the gold necklace on top of it. Then slided in some bobby pins to the hair to keep them in place. So here we go, the Middle Eastern Inspired Headpiece ala Tasia!
The pictures were taken at Noor Hotel. Fell in love with its Middle Eastern interior design from the very first place! "Step through the majestic doors of the classy Noor Hotel and feel yourself transported to your private oasis of luxury in the heart of Bandung" the website says. Well said and pretty much what I had experienced while spending time surrounded by the exotic Middle Eastern vibe here. Here's some glimpse of the hotel.

Butter Cream Frosting

Staying warm in one fine morning, flaunting my DIY patchwork cardigan and the whole look actually reminded me of pastel colored butter cream frosting on top of freshly baked cupcakes. Once got bored with the old clothes and I decided to cut them into unused scraps of fabrics and finally applied them all along the sleeves of my mom's old grey cardigan. Seems like they automatically became soulmates, lol!

Countdown to Christmas Eve. Who's counting? Surrounded and fascinated by the brand new Alsatian style architectures at Farmhouse - Lembang, Bandung, me and my friend couldn't stop talking about our Christmas plans accompanied by the ambience of traditional European village. Surprisingly flaunted the same color pallette for outfits, proved that we're best friends for life and fashion, hahah! Me going edgy and Merry has always been one of the girliest friends I ever had. Went all out and wore a net cardigan and the sweet patterned, grungy-able skirt which have been my wardrobe essentials of this month - with a pair of wedge sneakers. Also added a signature of teashades and hat for extra doses of style.

The Sound of Silence

Sitting in a hut at a beautiful wilderness retreat where I came to renew my spirit. Think it's the right time to disconnect which is as necessary as connection for creating a healthy, happy life. In the middle of the week I followed my escape route to Tiger Island, located in Thousand Islands, Indonesia, as my ultimate retreat. Hectic and noisy days made me feel dazed, frazzled, and longing for silent solitude. So, it's the perfect time to save my sanity.

Totally dip into the boho chic style which is relaxing, light, and airy. To accentuate the look, I created a boho headpiece a night before my arrival. Another chain was from my DIY Traveler's Charm here.

Little Tiger The Guardian of The Island was too tired and took a nap by the sea.

 Just a little part of those gigantic, mesmerizing beauty of the underwater.
