Flamingo in Pink + Internship Stories

Hello, March!
How was your day, everyone? Finally, welcome to the first post of Charming Berryz in March!
This post will be full with summery vibes and bright colors, like pink and tosca !

Thank you for my 2nd bro as always, Rudi who took all of the photos. And we went to a new spot in Semarang, called "Lunpia Village", it's a little street close to Plampitan Street. Even the road isn't that narrow, but I really do like the colorful vibes there, it's full with one of my fav color, pink!

It's called Lunpia Village because most people there are the makers of Lunpia skin, and for you who never heard Lunpia before, it's a popular food from Semarang City, filled with bamboo sprout and shrimp usually, personally I didn't like it because I can't stand the smell of the bamboo sprout, lol. But you still have to try Lunpia if you visit Semarang :)

Yoo hoo! Now talk about my outfit here. Chose something simple, casual but still sweet and cute as well. I was wondering about a fun summer concept, so here is it, decided to wear short denim pants I rarely wear, lol, since I'm not a big fan of shorts hihi!

And paired it with my flamingo pink shirt and white platform heels. Matched my outfit with a tote bag from Miniso xD I love this tote bag since it's on pink and it could bring many stuffs inside, so quite practical!




My Outfit Details: 

Flamingo Pink Shirt - on Instagram but I forgot the shop's name
Denim Shorts - Fada Boutique
White Heels - @mintandmauve on Instagram
Pink Tote Bag - Miniso
Earrings - Diva Accessories

 And thank God, finally this week is my last week for internship program at Gadis Magazine. Didn't expect that time flies so damn fast! I've passed many things and works, got so many interesting experiences, like my very first time being a real stylist, it was so exhausting, you really can not underestimate a stylist profession! I prefer to be a model rather than a stylist, my body and soul isn't that 'strong' for being a stylist, LOL. But didn't mean that I don't enjoy my job as a stylist, I liked it so much, but if I could choose, I still choose being a model xD

I had to look for the style concept from 0, look for the right costumes and wardrobe in LESS THAN ONE WEEK, choose the right poses and moods, run from here to there, anywhere to borrow and find wardrobes that suit the theme, decide the right make-up that suit the theme, be creative for mixing and matching clothes and accessories, choose the final photos, think about what design that suit the theme, until laundry ALL the clothes that has been used for photo shoot and give it all back to the owner, store or designer. I did it alllll! Thank God, I had Tiza as my stylist partner!

I experienced as a real content maker too, on online magazine and print magazine as well, how the deadline 'haunted' me, but thank God I finished it all until next Friday will be my last internship day!

Not only that, I experienced being a fashion and beauty 'journalist' too! Went for some events and press conferences already to gather some important news that should be shared and posted on the online magazine. It's quite exhausting but interesting, met many senior journalists there from various TV and media channels and we shared about journalistic world.
The fun part being a media journalist is the freebies that I got as always after the events ended, hihihi!

Of course I won't forget my experiences here from internship and all new friends I've made there at Gadis Magazine. Without all of people there, I wouldn't finish it all!
And I'll be back to Semarang on this Saturday, so excited, I miss my family, friends and all the coffee shops there! Hahahaha


Guess that's allfor this post, hope that you get some inspirations and enjoyed it! Have a great weekend ahead, and don't forget to follow this blog if you haven't followed me <3

Oriental Retro Gal

Hello, everyone!
Welcome to my second post of February~
First of all I'd like to say Happy 'late' Valentine's Day and Happy Chinese New Year for those who celebrate, like me !

How was yesterday, the most lovable day, Valentine? Did you got interesting and sweet day? Because me, I got my sweet stories on this year's Valentine, different from the previous Valentine Days, lol.

Thanks for the one who always tried to make me smile, and never stopped showing the love, and finally someone said to me, yesterday, he asked me to go out with him. Damn, why was he so sweet, but I haven't gave him the answer yet, I need to meet him directly, in person, and eye to eye to give the answer :p

Enough with that love love love stories of me, let's move to my outfit details in this post. I chose red, as the symbol of Valentine's Day and Chinese New Year Moment too, so in this post I'm wearing red-themed outfit, with "oriental" touch. And because my outfit got some 'retro' vibes too, let's called it 'Oriental Retro Gal' <3

The retro touch about this outfit is from my high-waisted denim pants and big buckle belt that became one of my favorit fashion combination now. And added oriental touch to this outfit with Chinese floral printed cap by H&M, then red tassel earrings.

Finally got the chance to wear this gold-heeled strappy heels that I bought online at @mintandmauve Instagram) one year ago, didn't expect that this heels could match with my outfit theme~

Anyway, since last Saturday, I got sick, 'Singapore Flu', so my hand and foot palms were full with red dots which looked similar with Chicken Pox disease, but it's not, and my throat was sore and I was so hard to swallow foods, my body temperature were high too on the first time and I felt so exhausted and tired, like I got no energy at all.

Even though I got many jobs to be done in the office, and this week I should be in charge of magazine photo shoot styling, but due to my sickness, I couldn't got a chance to finish my works, then I had to be replaced by my friend :( I feel so sad because I suddenly got sick, and it was like, breaking all of my concepts, works that I've done since the beginning :(

But I couldn't do anything, I got no plan to be sick at all, but maybe God told me that I was working on myself too hard, and I had to get some break.


Red knit crop top - Forever21
Denim pants - Shopee: boxofjeans

Past Lessons

Hello, the month of Love~
It's February already, a month passed already in 2018. How was your first month in this year?
I passed mine well along with my internship work at Gadis Magz Femina Group at Jakarta since the 2nd week of January. Currently enjoying my jobs there as a contributor in Fashion and Beauty Directory, and soon-to-be a Stylist!

Can not wait for another challenge as a fashion and beauty 'real' worker. Thanks to God, after waiting for around 2 months and applied to more than 10 companies, He sent me there, Gadis Magz that matched my passion, fashion and beauty world.

Gadis also sent me to the 'field', I mean any fashion and beauty events to collect informations and updates for content-making matters related to the brand/ events. I had my first experience as a 'journalist' in my life with Gadis, and so happy I met many new people with many experiences in media world.


In this post I'm wearing 'green-themed' outfit, a street style look yet still feminine with assymetric skirt that I got from Avenue Clothing, a Green denim outer from @florence.attire on instagram , vintage rebel tee from Stradivarius, Studded bag a gift from my 2nd brother who took all of these photos too, and completing my look with my favorite June and Julia Black Heels and Clear Green Glasses from friend~

I'm always preferring skirt rather than pants, because with skirt I could move my body freely and easier hehehe, but not a midi skirt like many posts before, I decided to wear this assymetric plaid skirt with wrapped details.

Me and my brother went to Moment Coffee and Space, one of a new coffee shop in Semarang, one of my favorite coffee shop too. The place is quite small for the indoor area, but it's still cozy and comfortable to enjoy your time with coffee and friends, the good thing is the price is quite affordable, and the food isn't bad, I'd like to recommend the Fish and Chips or Pizza Baguete there. For the outdoor area is wider and a right place for you who smoke, the outdoor area is full with greens too, so you could feel fresher there~

Anyway, in this post like I mentioned already in my Insta's photo several days ago, I'd like to share something to all of you, so let's call this a sharing session, lol.
Don't mean to scold you or anything, I just wanna share what've been happened to me in the past and now I regret it so much, and that made me feel harder to move forward for my life.

Some mistakes I made in the past told me now, for examples about my love stories that ended in the past, some 'young-mistakes' I've made, and many more mistakes and regrets in the past. The 'now' me think that I was so stupid and careless back then. Maybe because I'm a NAIVE person, so in the past, I easily got fooled, stabbed, and hurt by some people.

I was so emotional and selfish, I said that it was for together goods, but actually the decisions I've made in the past killed my little by little, because I didn't think twice, I didn't think about myself, my heart, I just thought TOO MUCH about others in the past, that made me forget my own self.

That's one of a thing of my regrets, I GOT TRAUMA, but even I know it's already too late too regret, because it's already happened, so for now, I only have to learn some lessons from those mistakes and bad experiences that broke me so much in the past.

I have to deal with the risks I've got from my careless and selfish decisions in the past, I have to be stronger, I have to be a braver person, I have to 'care' to myself more and try to reach my happiness, not from the others, or boys, but from my own self.


But I have to move forward and be maturer, more careful to choose and decide some things. I won't let myself being fooled or broke anymore, I've to heal my trauma from the past, and Thank God, dunno He's always just surprised me, lol with His plans.

Someone's come to my life, actually don't really know what is his motive to come to my life, a man, yeah I talked about another man, lol.

Dunno, just I don't know how to explain this, I guarded myself to prevent myself from bad things that could happened again to me like the past. But He's just.... HOW TO EXPLAIN THIS FEELING. I'M CONFUSED!

He is currently trying to 'break down' my 'walls', till now, and maybe he's reading this post currently ///
I'm happy he looks kind, caring, a gentleman, and he looks really-really 'genuine', currently till now I'm admiring his attemps and works for me, but still, it's so hard for me to believe somebody now, BUT I'M TRYING TO, and I tried to be really careful this time.

Actually, I fell for him and I feel comfortable around him, I feel happier too with him, he is SO MUCH different (in a positive way) from those in the past, hopefully He isn't faking it in front of me hmmm.

Maybe I need to see more 'hard works' from him to myself, so I could regain my believe to men? lol. Sounds like cliche, but that is the only thing to do, right, girls?

Well, he said he'll visit me at Jakarta this month, but we'll see *smirking* !
Guess that I'll have a lonely valentine this year because he can't be here with me at Valentine's day.


Well, that's all,a long one XD,
dunno what to write anymore here, but thanks a bunch for you who read and pay attention to me and my updates. Hope that you'll always support me, because I will be nothing without all of you, friends!
