3-Day Short Trip to Central Java - DAY 3: Jogjakarta

Took a looooooooooong time to post about this, but sorry... I was so busy with my new job so, hehe please forgive me!

This will be photo-flooding post, with not much story, but I hope still satisfying :p

So this will be about my last day of farewell vacation with my college friends! Just to freshen up your memory, I went to Central Java to have a farewell trip with my college friends. It was short, and we hopped on different three cities in three days!

You can view my previous first and second day of trip here and here.

So, the last day is Jogjakarta!

We didn't plan to stay for a night so, we just spent a day then headed back to Jakarta in the evening.

I posted about our short visit on Couchsurfing and got few replies! In the end, we chose to meet a man; Ula. He was so kind to take us everywhere with his motorbike. And not to forget that he also brought along his friends so that each of us can ride a motorbike, hahaha! Thanks a bunch, Ula!

After arriving at the train station, turned out that his place is located very near to the station, it only took 5 minutes by motorbike. I forgot to take the picture of his place, but it is damn nice! So, he lives with bunch of guys all came from the same hometown; South Sulawesi. It is a goverment-grant dormitory for students from that region.

So we put all of our belongings there and ready to rideee!

First place we visited was Kraton Yogyakarta.

Experiencing Sweet Chocolate at Johnny Andrean


Weeks ago,  I attended Johnny Andrean's event along with other beauty bloggers. Thanks to Mba Shinta, I can say I enjoyed the time being pampered there!

What is Sweet Chocolate anyway?

Sweet Chocolate is a new campaign by   Johnny Andrean  salon. Actually, they have already launched a similar campaign back then. But, since the customers feedback was so good and even demand for another one, then Johnny Andrean upgrade it and launched the improved formula for Sweet Chocolate.

They divide the event into 2 schedule, morning and afternoon. But all of the bloggers will gather together during lunch. I chose afternoon by the way.

So, we had our lunch together at Palalada restaurant.


And here's the main course that day. I am not really impressed, but hey, it's not beauty-related so ignore! LOL.


Then, we're escorted to Johnny Andrean salon to get the treatment. We were able to choose between treatment or coloring. Since I have to go back fast, I chose treatment (though I want to recolor my hair *sad*).

Surprisingly, JA has special treatment room for  Matrix. The place is really cozy with touch of green.

Biotherm: The Perfect Match For Your Skin


I've been focusing more on skin care rather than makeup lately. I am really, really concerned over skin care since I done several skin check on few beauty events. And you know what, I get scared over the result since I have older skin age than my real age T_T

Though the difference and condition was not that bad, I am just want to be preventive. So, if you pay attention to my blog posts, I post more about skin care rather than makeup. Now you know. ;)

So, to be honest, I always love Carnellin's skin. Despite of being a mom of a cute little girl, I think she has better skin than mine (*slap myself on the face*). I often meet her in person and I can guarantee that her flawless skin is real. Her photos on her blog and real her, no difference! Well, not to criticize those who use photo editing software though. 

And I would love to share a good news to you all, that Carnellin collaborate together with Biotherm on a beauty event named "Find the Perfect Match for Your Skin." 

So, every beautiful skin, even Carnellin's doesn't come in a night or without any effort. So, Biotherm wants to help you finding right skin care for your skin! Beautiful skin equals a healthy skin, thus you should achieve that healthy skin with right method, treatment, products or skin care. Biotherm has wide varieties of skin care for everyone. Aquasource is one of the famous lines which definitely will fulfill your skin's thirst (I used it several times back then). How about the oily ones? Well, Biotherm got Pure-fect line to help you control that oil! Men's line? They got it too! I bought one for my dad back then and he loves it!

You can find your perfect match with Biotherm's help by joining this event and all you have to do is to pay Rp 150.000,- for the invitation. What  are the benefits? You can get the complimentary services consist of Facial, Skin Check + Consultation, Welcome Gift, and Door Prize!

And here's the sample of the welcome gift:


See, worth the price right? Moreover, the invitation can also act as voucher for purchase only that day, wow! *drooling* So go RSVP now by emailing to carnellin@gmail.com ^_^

I really want to come since I tried Biotherm products before and I just love the hospitality of them. As you know, in Indonesia, we often get rude treatment from beauty advisers in the sales counter (especially because I'm just a young lady, they might think that I'm not going to purchase, my suspection), but not with Biotherm. I even remember one of the beauty advisers; Mas Dodo because he was so kind and friendly though I just look around and did no purchase. And that's also the reason why I came back to purchase after trying out the samples given to me.

Moreover, Biotherm is also generous in terms of giving beauty samples. Judging from my experiences, they never gave me only one sample for one product, I usually get 3-7 samples per product!

Beside those reasons, I also want to perform another skin check as I believe that my skin condition changed a lot due to the lifestyle and environment (water, air pollution).

Biotherm product that attracts me the most is the Aquasource BB Cream!
I am crazy over this product and I really excited to try more Western BB cream since I always try Asian ones.

More good news?
Yes! 5 selected bloggers can enjoy this event including all of the benefits and services provided (goodie bag + voucher too!) by blogging about this event. And I'm doing it right now *woohoo*

You can also improve your chance for the free invitation by sharing as many as possible and give your reasons why Biotherm is a brand of skin care you really want to try, why you want to come, and which product attracts your eyes the most.

I hope I can win the free invitation ^_^ *fingers crossed*

Hello all! This month's theme for IBB Make Up Challenge is Alter Ego. Here is one of my interpretations for alter ego.

All products used is from Maybelline.

So this is my daily look lately.

I always use CC Cream or CC+BB Cream, eyebrow and lip stain. Those are my essential things for my daily look.


Products used:
Etude House CC Cream
Etude House Cotton Fit BB Cream
Etude House Draw My Eye Brow in #1 Brown
Tony Moly Tint Cherry Pink

And this is my alter ego :p

I call it BOLD Look since I accentuate two parts of my face; Eye brow and Lips.

Maybelline Clear Smooth All in One Cake Powder 02 Nude Beige
Maybelline Cheeky Glow Blush Fresh Coral
Maybelline Eye Studio Master Liner BK1

I don't usually wear this kind of look but I love this look, from long time ago! I always love bright and shocking lip colors, but hey, it's hard to wear it daily. Haha.

Hopefully I can post another alter ego soon (been a busy-bee these days).

See you!
