San Francisco

So, in early August on the "Greeting August" post, I told you that I'm leaving Bali for university. And here I am, in my dorm, listening to Lana Del Rey while typing.
I've been so amazed by this beautiful city, the buildings are so amazing, the weather is a bit crazy but I enjoy it and the people here are so friendly and kind... I feel so blessed to be here in the first place.
Here are some of the pictures of my first week here — out of hundreds that I took, I had so much fun traveling the town.

Home Mate
















A friend of mine owns this shop. I love how homey and cozy the place is! The space was wonderful, I'd love to have a house with this kind of interior someday.

Shorter Than Usual




new look "LUCKY" shirt // DIY shorts // converse sneakers

The last time I had my hair this short was when I was in the 5th grade and no, I was not happy about it  I cried for three days back then. And I was not a big fan of my new short hair either. It's way shorter than I expected and it annoys the crap out of me — I had to do something with my hair every morning which is something that I have never done before, I usually just air dry my hair and spent about 8 minutes to curl my hair when I'm in the mood. I also feel like I look older and younger at the same time, wired.
I'm still getting used to my new hair and well, I think a little change every once in a while is good thing.
What do you think? And if you have any advice for hair that bends outward without damaging the ends please do tell me.

Hand Me Down

Bonia watch



My mother is one fashion lover — where I get my passion from. She had a good eye for things so I got tons of vintage hand-me-downs and this watch was one of hers. This watch is quite old and the straps were torn so last night I went to the watch shop and change the straps. The straps were originally white and made from leather, it looked much more elegant. Instead of getting the same straps as the original ones, I chose the dark brown ones. It's amazing how colors work, once elegant to now delicate and simple at the same time. Even tough the new straps were so inflexible I still love it.

Greeting August

It's August, how the time files... I've been busy packing up and preparing for university. I'm so pumped but at the same time I know I'm gonna miss Bali so much. Two weeks to go!
