Rainy Days Fashion, Hair, and Makeup

Hi all, 

Hearing all the news about terrible flood that invades Jakarta and other cities really break my heart. I pray this disaster quickly passed and the most important thing, I hope all of you are well, healthy, and safe. 

So, today post is about tips and tricks that I have picked up to get myself ready to face rainy cold days. Let's see all of them.


  • Layer some pieces to keep you warm. A combination of a comfortable form-fitting sweater, cardigan, skinny belt and scarf are my go to wardrobe staple to face rainy days. 
  • If you plan to go outdoor, make sure you wear waterproof rain boots. If you like me, who thinks rain boots are 'too much', then choose a flat booties or sneakers. Basically I don't like wearing sandals on a rainy day. I like to keep my feet as dry as possible. 


  • I prefer to wear my hair up, a messy bun or ponytail. The wind and humidity making my hair crazy and frizzy. That's why I like to keep them secured and out of my face. I don't want to think about my hair when I walk under the rain.
  • I like to wear hoodies to keep my hair dry. Most of the time, after I walk under the rain (without umbrella), I get a little headache. So if I don't bring my umbrella I will use hooded jacket to protect my head.


  • Waterproof mascara, waterproof eyeliner. Waterproof formula is the key.
  • Even on a dark rainy days, sunscreen is still important. So don't forget to apply your suncreen, add BB  cream or tinted moisturizer to even out your skin.
  • Put a little color on your cheek and lips. One tips: don't use sticky lipgloss, wind will blow up and stick your hair to your lips. Choose a tinted lipbalm or lipstain instead.


  • Invest in some kind of mini and sturdy umbrella. Don't forget to bring some kind of plastic bag with you. You can throw your wet umbrella inside the plastic bag and keep it neat in your purse.
  • If you can't avoid wet feet, then bring another shoes inside your purse. Don't wear a wet shoes for too long. Change it to other shoes. A light rolled-up flats is a my choice.
  • Other things to bring are mask and hand sanitizer. In a flu season, its important to bring mask to minimize your chance to catch a flu that spreads through the air. Hand sanitizer is useful when you can't find a sink to wash your hand.
  • Spritz some oriental, heavier scented perfume that you can't wear in a hot days, the cold weather toned down the smells. Heavier perfumes are lovely in colder weather.

So these are my tips and tricks to get myself ready to face rainy day. I hope these could be useful for you. If you have any other tips and trick, feel free to tell me on the comment below.

Holy Grail Product Review: The Body Shop Body Butters

Hi Ladies,

Today I will do a review about one of my Holy Grail beauty product, The Body Shop Body Butters. I’ve been wearing TBS Body Butters for years, no matter how many brands of lotions or creams that I have tried, I always have TBS Body Butters on my beauty arsenal, I always go back to it.

Left to Right - Clock Wise: Moringa, Shea, Vanilla Bliss

Why I love it so much? Let me show you why

- It does the job moisturized my skin. From the lighter texture like Pink Grapefruit, Sweet Lemon, or Coconut, to the richer consistency like Shea, Cocoa, or Brazil Nut. TBS Body Butters always meet my needs. If I want a light lotion on hot day I will use something like Sweet Lemon, if I feel like I need more hydration and something creamier I will use Shea.

- It gives my skin a supple and comfortable feeling. Using TBS Body Butters is become my ritual to pamper myself. Once every two weeks, use body scrub first when you take a shower then slather some body butter, your skin would be silky smooth.

- I read online that some celebrities swear by TBS Cocoa or Shea body butter to prevent stretch marks. Some reviews on Makeup Alley said that some kind of body butter like Coconut helps to reduce Kelatosis Pilaris (chicken skin like texture) and eczema (no medical prove about this but we can try J).  

- It has a lot of different scents. Yummy gourmand type like Vanilla Body Butter Duo and Chocomania, floral like Moringa and Japanese Cherry Blossom, something more sweet and fruity like Mango and Wild Cherry, to the more perfumy scent like Love ETC and White Musk, I guarantee you’ll find something you like.

- It does have a cute packaging. Unlike regular tube or bottle that can squeeze or spilled everywhere, TBS Body Butters plastic jar are more practical when you want to bring it to travel. More convenient. They also have the mini one, so stock it up

The only negative thing I can say is, this body butter kind of pricy, for regular size jar the price starts from Rp 169.000 – to 189.000,-. Usually I stock up when TBS has some kind of discount or promo. That way I can save some money J. If you new to TBS Body Butter you can try whatever type you like in the store, my recommendation are Shea, Coconut, and Cacao. Overall I am satisfied with this product and will continue to buy this in the future.   

So what do you think about TBS Body Butter? What is your favorite one? Tell me on the comment below.
