This week's polish - Deborah Lippman's Accross the Universe

Sometimes I wish I have the time to change my nail polish every other day. Unfortunately, I'm not the most patient person and applying nail polish can be quite frustrating for me since I almost ALWAYS smudge or bump my polish... sometimes even before I put the bottle down. It happens because I'm always running around... doing a dozen things at once. So most of the time, I just don't bother with polish. But from time to time, there are always colors that I just fall madly in love with and willing to spend hours sitting down doing nothing to make sure the polish is completely dry before going back to "stealth mode" and continue my day.

This week I'm rocking Deborah Lippman's Across the Universe ($19 from beauty.com). It's described as blazing blue and metallic green glam in sheerest navy (glitter). I stared long and hard at my fingers but couldn't find the "metallic green glam". Oh well, I love it enough to wear it to work almost for the whole week (though it's not really a work appropriate color... not for my office anyway).

Back from another hiatus...

Ok, somehow going on hiatus has become a habit of mine. I am juggling so many roles in life that whenever things get super busy, I need to drop some balls roles to continue juggling. I have been developing a small fashion house with my sister where she is in charge of the ready wear collection and production as a whole, while I am developing the traditional line. It has been a fun yet challenging year since sourcing and transforming traditional Indonesian materials are not as easy as it seems. But I'm proud to take part in promoting Indonesian materials locally as well as internationally (through various online media).

I will share some pictures of my treasured findings and design through this blog. Hopefully these images can inspire you or simply brighten your days :)

*Please note that most images are captured using my iPhone or android since I do not always have my DSLR with me*
