Hello again lovelies! My apology for leaving my blog blank for a few days. I guess I’m still enjoying the holiday feeling. It’s been raining, cloudy and windy every day and all I wanted to do was curling up in bed with my novel or watching some movies. However, I woke up this morning with an idea. I’m gonna write something fun today. New year is approaching real soon and no matter how you celebrate it, you gotta include cocktails as part of your plan! While people are toasting with champagne or wine, I’d go for yummy cocktails. And if you have particular cocktail in mind, let’s have a little bit of fun by matching it with what you will wear on this year-end celebration. Here are some of my favorite cocktails (and I hope you find yours here) and how I would wear my fashion to go along with them! : )

1. Cosmopolitan.
If Cosmo is your choice, then you’re definitely the Sex & the City Girl. Cosmo girls are playful, feminine, and flirtatious. They know what they want and they usually get it. For this first section, I choose this gorgeous twill dress from Philosophy Di Alberta Ferretti. It’s absolutely stunning and would hug your figure just right!

Cosmopolitan Style

1. Philosophy di Alberta Ferretti Asymmetrical Twill Dress. US$550.
2. Jessica Simpson Unchain My Heart Gold Bangle. US$30.
3. OPI You’re a Pisa Work Nail Color. US$8.
4. Danielle Nicole Pleated Clutch. US$78.
5. Michael Kors Toni Sandals. US$175.

2. Mojito.
Mojito is my safest bet whenever I visit new bar. It’s a simple cocktail blend that doesn’t only look good but also taste good. I just love the sight and the smell of refreshing mint leaves. Mojito girls are fun, exciting and knows how to have a good time. That’s why I figure shiny sequins would totally represent this green style!

Mojito Style

1. Diane Von Furstenberg Sequined Silk Top. US$385.
2. Stila Going Green Trio Eye Shadow. US$20.
3. Vanessa Bruno Black Leather Skirt. US$283.80.
4. Bounkit Green Amethyst Ring. US$290.
5. Foley + Corinna FC Lady Clutch. US$200.
6. Georgina Goodman Mia Leather Ankle Boots. US$180.25.

3. Sangria.
This is my other favorite cocktail, so fresh and delish! Sangria girls, you are fun, bubbly and absolutely full of colors. For fruity drink like this, you need to be a bit more playful with bright shades. This new embroidery dress from Sass & bide is not only fun to look at but also fancy to wear. Dare to be bold in colors? Why not!

Sangria Style

1. Sass & Bide Embroidered Dress. US$795.
2. Swarovski Ribbon Pierced Earrings. US$165.
3. River Island Hard Clutch Bag. US$29.09.
4. Lancome Juicy Tubes Jelly. US$18.
5. Michael Kors Neon Pink Patent Sandals. US$225.

 4. Martini.
Martini girls, you are classy, elegant and seductive. Basically, you drink with class! For this classic choice, I come across Donna Karan’s famous satin tank top to bring out your sophisticated persona. Here’s to Miss independent!

Martini Style

1. Donna Karan Satin Wrap Top. US$1,195.
2. Dior Green Design Color Palette. US$59.
3. Etro Wide Leg Pants. US$730.
4. Rebecca Minkoff Mini Mac Clutch. US$195.
5. Jimmy Choo Fairy Satin Shoes. US$850.
6. Kate Spade Glossy Garden Necklace. US$328.

5. Long Island Iced Tea.
Another classic cocktail you can’t miss. Long Island girls, you are absolutely charming, classy and refreshingly sweet! That’s why I choose this elegant and sexy dress from Julien Macdonald to shine your beauty. After all, you can never go wrong with a touch of gold right?

Long Island Iced Tea Style

1. Julien Macdonald Silk Satin and Lace Dress. US$1,002.50.
2. Smashbox Be Discovered Cream Cheek Trio. US$29.
3. Kate Spade Sweet Zinnia Floral Bracelet. US$148.

5. Miu Miu Glitter Sandals. US$730.

6. Strawberry Daiquiri.
Last but definitely not the least, I will close today’s post with something sweet. Strawberry Daiquiri girls are absolute sweethearts. They’re casual and can light up the room instantly with their bubbly personality. For this, I choose simple yet daring red dress from Moschino to represent the sweetness. Here’s to lovely ladies!

6 Tips to Have an Enjoyable Winter

It’s been pouring like crazy in Bali. After a long anticipation, finally we can enjoy the cool breeze and relaxing sound of the rain. Our house is close to rice paddies and empty lots so when the wind blowing our way, it can be quite cold. This wet season always makes me feel lazy and mellow, and I really don’t feel like going out unless it’s necessary. I just love curling up at home with a good book, good movies and of course, good food. Now I know winter isn’t the same with rain, but since the rain here also comes with the wind and storm, I’d like to keep myself warm at home. Anyways, here’s what I think you can do (besides turning the heater on) to keep yourself cozy even if it’s cold outside.

1. Wear Comfy Sweater and pants.
I know, typical right? but not this time. Instead of lounging around in your grandma sweater, why don’t we get you something more stylish and hip? Just because you’re staying in doesn’t mean you can look whatever. Here are some nice combos I found that will definitely make your day/night much more enjoyable, and yes, they are super comfortable you wouldn’t want to take them off.

Cute Sweaters and Pants

1. Victoria’s Secret Long Sleeve Athletic Tee. US$29.50.

5. Juicy Couture Terry Sailor Pant. US$84.99.
6. Jockey Scrubs Comfort Pants. US$38.

2. Cover Your Toes Right.
If you plan to stay warm, then you should consider wrapping your feet right, because having cold feet means having cold everything. I have chosen some cute socks to complement your adorable outfit!

3. Give Yourself Relaxing Massages.
There’s nothing more heavenly than having relaxing massage. This next item is recommendable for you who wants to stay home but still feeling all pampered and relaxed. These personal massagers are total must-haves, especially if you spend most of the time sitting in front of the computer. Good news is they are quite affordable! Give yourself an excellent reward!
