WHAT'S GOING ON AND HAPPY LIFE - Well there is nothing serious in this post because I have no story to tell right now *not yet*, but I am still busy with writing, fashion, editorial and magazine. After my Bali trip, I'm kinda miss to be a traveler, lol, did fashion bored me? I have to say it was toned down lately, I feel want to cheat to travelling, resorts, cultures, natures, something that more down to earth and like a new breath air to take.
So when my friend called me and asked me to join him trip to Ujung Kulon, without any hesitation I said yes, a week latter I said yes too when my other friend was inviting me to join her to Malang, Bromo in East Java, while in the same time, I sent my proposal for media trip to New Zealand. Not meant to be greedy, but I want to experience it, I am more pro-active by propose myself to do something for magazine outside fashion, because honestly I do almost everything but automotive's article, like you know.
Once says that it can be something wrong or not that good with the output, if you write something that you don't like, ya I do agree, but who doesn't love travelling? ya some older people might be, but for me, I am still young and its never hurts to explore and go to the place that you want to be there and actually write to way you see those places in your own point of view. More over I am lifestyle writer, my power could be in men's fashion (or a bit general fashion, I do good with the accessories), but if you regularly read my blog, its kinda much about everything.
Lifestyle is not about being rich or have a lots of money, but it's the way you live your happy life, and what's happy, what is happy life? I think happiness is relatives, some people have different version of happiness, also for me, happy is like fashion, it's changing all the time. Just like right now, I feel so happy and blessed, try to do my life as fun as possible, with my friends, my job, my blog, my readers *hello there?* haha my family, my religion (OMG) and last but not least my goal to lost weight this month *wishmeluck* and all the things I said, yes make me happy right now.
THE (REEBONZ) BLACK BOX HAS COME - Yes darls it's finally come (like a week ago lol) and I'm happy now :))) thank you Reebonz Indonesia for such a fast delivery, free shipping, less money, less time & energy and the product I received is well condition, exactly like what I really want. It's quite fast, yes usually they works for 14 days of delivery, but it's started when someone texted me:
"Mas Herdi, I have received a black box and it's so huge... I don't know what to do", it looks Mas Iwan (my residence guard) was excited to see this black box from Reebonz indonesia, of course it's for me not for him.
Then I just said, "Ohh that's a bag, please be careful, it's worth 5 months’ rent lol, something happened, I stay here forever free!!!” ahhh I was kidding, because I won't stay here forever, pleaseee
Okay skip, sooo this is the black box contain my order, Coach Lather Duffel BostonBag that I order from Reebonz Indonesia as you can see in my previous Reebonz Indonesia Online Shopping Experience. Perfectly the only official luxury online shop in the region, providing a wide range of luxury goods as you can check out by yourself free. I love how they were wrapping my package, with bubble wrap, high quality paper box, then with a plastic, and the other thin foam protector inside.
I love with the bag, not only because it's Coach, but also it was 50% off :D, American Craftsmanship standard of course, I just hope that I could do some online shopping again at Reebonz Indonesia with the other craftsmanship; Italian Prada, Parisian Chanel or Hermes, Germany MCM, British Mulberry, Spanish Loewe, Japanese Comme des Garcons, etc etc, what a diversity craftsmanship. Trust me everything possible at Reebonz Indonesia, yes the sale event sometimes in limited time, but you can add the goods you want into your wish-lists, even you can suggest the brand, anything that you want, anything that you need to be on sale.
Do not worry about extra charge, taxes, shipping fee, because all include when you see the price in the website (make sure you signing in Reebonz Indonesia, so the price comes in IDR), payment with credit card or Bank transfer is accepted, moreover you will never know because the other promo always suddenly come, once +10% off, or maybe IDR 300K credit, somehow it's so fun way to shop more cheaper than the retail store really.
So from now on, you will never miss the Reebonz Indonesia sales event anymore...
FRANCIS KURKDJIAN OUD MOODS - How you can communicate with your soul? Some do with spiritual approach, some do with dressed up, some do with a lot of travelling and some do with fragrance, well it's a lifestyle.
I had waked up in the middle of the night early today, and suddenly I took some samples of Maison Francis Kurkdjian Paris Oud Moods, and sprayed to my hand. I sprayed Oud Silk Mood on my right hand and Oud Velvet Mood to my left hand. In a very fresh condition (for me) it was the right time for me to actually smell them and get to their soul; I want to know what kind of reaction that my mind will give to me? Where does its scent will take me go?
In fact the Silk took me to something smooth like, well obviously silk, and warm like a hug, I am thinking about Paris, maybe you ever heard and yes the silk one is more feminine than the other Oud, it's calm, it's soft, it's peaceful, it's powdery. You might be confused at the Top Notes but the Base Notes are brilliant. From the Top Notes to the Base Notes, it was a dreamy moment for me. Absolutely versatile, because it is also kinda fits with men, a romantic and sweet men. Maison Francis Kurkdjian Paris, Oud Silk Mood: Oud, Bulgarian Rose, Morrocan Chamomile, Papyrus
When you moved your attention to the other moods, it will take you 180 degree to the different places, and Velvet one took me to something American Ethnic, Cowboy, Indian, something like that. (Again) Confused at the beginning but I know exactly the mood is, very strong, masculine, warm, a bit spicy. Maison Francis Kurkdjian Paris, Oud Velvet Mood: Oud, Ceylanian Cinnamon, Saffron and Brazilian Copahu Balm
Then I feel Cashmere, it's very rich, deep and I am thinking about Middle East and its food. I am thinking about the souk market in Sex and City 2 the movie, absolutely spices and it's like ready to cook; Masculinity desert, balmy, a bit sweet. Maison Francis Kurkdjian Paris, Oud Chasmere Mood: Oud, Moroccan Labdanum, Laoatian Benzoin and Vanilla.
Always excited to Mr. Francis creations, can't barely wait for the next one, as a spoiler it's the next chapter from Aqua to be released hopefully this year, in the meantime The Oud Moods is available at The Papilion Duo, here at Pacific Place Mall Jakarta, sooo where are you going? And with who? To Paris, Ethnic America or Middle East? :)))
CAST EYEWEAR 2013 COLLECTION - One says that her most favorite fashion item is sunglasses, her only reason is she wants people that talk to her will take THEIR attention to her face, not to her bag, even more to her shoes, and I'm kinda agreed. After wayfarer era, saved all your young money for the CAST EYEWEAR. Loving the designs, contemporary classic but with modern attitude, thank to the name behind Cast Eyewear, Fahrani Empel, so the other one says sunglasses could change your look.
We are talking about sunglasses and until today, when I see extraordinary sunglasses, my mind automatically relates to Lady Gaga, and in an actuality Lady Gaga was wearing Cast Eyewear in her daily routine during her world-tour, so it's approved sign from the Mother. To go the beach club, or having a city walk among concretes jungle, maybe you will like what I like from Cast Eyewear 2013 collection. See the rest of Cast Eyewear 2013 collection
REEBONZ ONLINE SHOPPING EXPERIENCE - Soooooo I decided to invest my money in a form of genuine leather bag, where I bought it? At Reebonz.com & now also available Reebonz Indonesia so the price tag comes with IDR and all in and I can't barely wait to receive the package.
What is the bag? it is Bvlgari bag? hmmm so the story begin when I lost bid to get Louis Vuitton keepall 50 monogram bag at online forum, but then I received newsletter email from Reebonz (as always, because I am member of Reebonz) about 50% off sale event, trust me that Reebonz always hold an interesting sale events. Then I signed in, and started to explore all the sale events, luxury brands such as; Prada, Bottega Veneta, Gucci, Fendi, Chloe, Coach, Valentino, Saint Laurent, Marc Jacobs, Mulberry, Dior and more, even you can find pre-owned Chanel events at Reebonz.
I clicked the Reebonz newsletter, just for casual checking what's on the 5ifty at 50% event and see, its real 50% percent off. Here at Reebonz, you will find selected item like bags, shoes, accessories with the price is cheaper compared with the retail store price, just check it out because it's free to see whatever you want to see, even in close up view so you can see the details, also the description. But I ended up with.....
Coach Bleecker Debossed Signature Boston Duffel Bag, it was almost, it was almost gone. Why? Because shopping at Reebonz is depends on the time period of the sale event, in my case the event will be closed in 8 hours. I bought this bag almost 50% off, if I buy this in Jakarta, I don't think I can get this with the same price, if I buy in the US, I need to dealing with shipping & tax, it will costs me more. But not here in Reebonz, if you based in Indonesia, the price tag is in IDR (Indonesia Rupiah) and it's include shipping and tax free, so the price you paid is all in, you just need to wait to receive the package at home, office or anywhere you want the goods to shipped.
With a simple steps from Add to Bag, Check Out, Place Order & Confirm Order (10 minutes to confirm) then your Order Completed, after 14 working days the goods is all mine. After Confirm Order, you will receive the confirmation email, I choose Bank Transfer (using Bank Mandiri or BCA) for the payment (2 hours to do a transfer) or you also can using credit card (maybe you will get extra discount with the card promo), then I do the transfer, and do a confirmation step via email by submit the transaction detail, it was soooooo easy.
So I will let you know after my package coming, you also can check the status of shipping in your Reebonz account, mine is shipped right now. Meanwhile, you can checking around at Reebonz.com, simple sign up with your facebook account, and it's free of course... so join today you may received extra credit IDR 200K, if you join Reebonz like right now, I'm sure by now the events closed and started with the new one... So let's join, buy a bag and get over it J
Shirt - Comme des Garcons | Sunglasses - Le Specs | Shoes - Pedro | Watch - Guess
MY BLACK & WHITE ESSENTIAL - So this is my black and white detail that I actually wore in my last night at private beach club night, WOOBAR W Hotel Bali. I love terms night more than party, but everything I got including these new in accessories was accident, never been my intention to make it black & white, but all I have got in fact complements each other. How I love my spring croco textured leather shoes by Pedro that I have purchased less than 200K IDR (so best deal ever for shoes), did not even spent my money for very sleek and simple Guess watch (if you know what I mean), and Le Spec Runways white coconut frame with mirror shade that I bought from my Canggu trip to Temple of Enthusiasm, Dues Ex Machina, because I'm planning my next trip to Ujung Kulon :))) can not wait to feel and back to fresh air and cry with all nature happiness.
I guess, I am not ready to go back to work LOL
LIMITED EDITION SKRILLEX FOR G-STAR ELWOOD - OH MY GOD... I want this limited edition in total black constructed denim designed by Skrillex for G-Star Illwood, I'm quite enough with boring jeans and then come G-Star as such a heaven for denim lovers, with their denim series collections. G-Star also using serial number for every collection, and for this the jeans touched by a leather trim and decorated by his drawing on the interior. Constructed by more than 25 pieces and silhouette that inspired by biker wear, as you can see on the knee detail.
But his drawing on the inside is everything, although is only just like that. Maybe he thought that he should represent his music in form of denim, all black in and out perhaps too plain compared with his music. It is funny or it's scary or even silly, surprise on the inside of this jeans is a different smart, you are still can wear this, smiling every times you see the drawing without scaring people, because they think you doodled your G-Star.
News for you, that finally G-Star opened their first boutique here in Jakarta, located at Pacific Place Mall, but the limited edition G-Star Skrillex Illwood will be available from 15th March 2013 at 12 selected G-Star stores at Barcelona, New York, LA, Miami, Hong Kong, Sydney and Amsterdam.
