(Still) Merry Christmas / Frohe Weihnachten

Hello again after four months without a new post :) I'm so happy to finally get the time to write and post something in Pudding Monster. Studienkolleg ate my life in the second semester. I absolutely did nothing except studying to the point that i know most of the people that go in the Uni Zentralbibliothek on a regular basis. Now i already have written my Festellungspr├╝fung and finally am enjoying the time off! This post is kind of late because i was travelling all around Hessen with Meryl and visited almost all Weihnachtsmarkt in Hessen. HA. We practically drank Gl├╝hwein everyday, oh the good life. We took these pictures in Wiesbaden, in front of Kochbrunnen. Such a lovely city to be in.

Now i'm already back in Marburg and enjoying some down time at home. Be prepared for some food / recipe posts in the future!

Back To White

Hello lovelies! I'm already back in Marburg, Germany and quite prepared to blog more regularly because i stocked up quite a lot of photos in Jakarta. The weather now is beginning to be somewhat colder so i'm saying good bye to shorts or short skirts (Can't wear them now without stockings / tights). I went around some places like Gastromaquia and Clea Tea Bar with Ko Patrick and took some pictures because the places were so pretty! In this post, i'm sharing some of my favorite shots from the cafe hopping we did.

12 Tips For Studying in Germany

It's finally time to share a piece of my personal life here in Pudding Monster. As you all know, i'm currently studying in a Studienkolleg in Germany. It's not a University, but somekind of a pre-Uni course. I will share with you all a few tips about studying here in Germany that will certainly be useful, especially when you just graduated from high school and interested in studying abroad. Let's go!

How To Moisturize Face Better | Innisfree Green Tea Seed Serum Special Set Review

Hello hello lovely people of the internet. I'm back with review of Innisfree products that i've been using for about one and a half month. Innisfree is a Korean brand that claims to use natural products and special ingredients from Jeju Island. It also promotes green lifestyle as Innisfree recycles their bottles, makes some campaigns, and also promotes the use of handkerchief instead of tissues. I've always been curious about their products since Pony's collaboration with the brand last year for summer make up. So i checked their fairly new international online shop and got a few products.

Be More Stylish in Spring | Spring Outfit Ideas and Wishlist

Hello Internet! The weather these days in Germany (esp Marburg an der Lahn, where i live at the moment ) is starting to get warmer. I'm really really happy to see more sunny days because it's a sign that spring / summer is coming. Talking about spring and summer, it's time to revamp our wardrobe to something lighter. I've compiled some of my ideas to what a perfect spring look would be. Don't forget to add your favorite leather jacket, jeans jacket, or even a snuggly long cardigan to the look! I've been switching between my Zara leather jacket and Cooperative varsity jacket these days. I can just throw any of them to my OOTD and they complete them perfectly! Enjoy!

this look is perfect for a casual-hanging out with friends day
Zara Printed Cut-Out Dress (similar here)
i love the prints on this dress because it's not too flashy yet a little bit fancy at the same time. The side cut-outs are flattering!

Topshop Glass ball Necklace (similar here)
To compliment the fancy dress, a dainty necklace is a must. It's so versatile to mix and match with other outfits as well.

3.1 Phillip Lim black Pashli backpack (similar here)
Who doesn't need a stylish backpack? The classic Phillip Lim Pashli in backpack form is a way to go.

Baublebar Khaleesi Bracelet (similar here)
Something fierce on the arms. Be the mother of the dragons just like Game Of Thrones' Khaleesi :p

Steve Madden Ecentric - Q Slip on sneakers (similar here)
They're comfy yet adds texture to the outfit. Black doesn't have to be plain no?

for days when you want to dress up for a night out or party
Topshop Off Shoulder Basic White Top (similar here)
Something basic to set off the base of the outfit. 
McQ Alexander McQueen Metallic crinkled-leather mini skirt (similar here)
In contrast to the plain white top, this silver metallic mini skirt is the point of the outfit; making a bold statement
Givenchy Mini Pandora Box in silver mirrored leather (similar here)
This sling bag is the perfect size for a night out and still a match to the silver skirt!
Baublebar Athena Grid Cuff (similar here)
Adding some edgy touch on the arm without making it too much
Baublebar Bamm-Bamm Collar Necklace (similar here)
Another statement piece to complement the basic top. The blue crystals will look amazing under lightings.
Iggy Azalea x Steve Madden Get-It Platform Sandals (similar here)
This collaboration pair is genius. Iggy Azalea successfully combined something fancy yet wearable for those spring days

Kate Spade Make A Splash Lenticular Case (similar here)
Why it's awesome? It's lenticular! It changes from Make A Splash to water reflections from time to time. I just WISH they made an iphone 5 version for it.

JBL Charge 2 White Bluetooth Speaker (similar here)
I'm still looking for the perfect speaker because grill and picnic season is coming and i think this is the one. It's on the expensive side but who knows? I might get it some time

Too Faced Chocolate Bar Palette (similar here)
I only own one Sephora Bling Make Up palette and it's now time to step up my eyeshadow game. I've heard great reviews about it and tried it once in Sephora Jakarta and loved it.

NARS Dual-Intensity Blush in Adoration (similar here)
NARS just released this blush and the idea of it is genius. Two blushes are better than one right?

Origins  GinZing Energy Boosting Moisturizer (similar here)
I know i've been wanting this product for such a long time and it appeared on previous Wishlists but man.. i want one so bad and i haven't got the chance to have one

Nike Air Max Thea Jacquard in Black (similar here)
Oh yes, since i've started Studienkolleg i've been wearing nothing but sneakers everyday. I own another version of Nike Air Max Thea but in Turquoise and now craving for this black baby!

That's all for now, have a great week ahead people!
