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!

LOOK 1
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?

LOOK 2
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

SPRING WISH LIST
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!
Don't forget to catch me in more of daily basis on Instagram in @veenation ! :D

Pay No Mind

Hello world! Sorry for abandoning you guys for a really long time. I've been really busy here in Germany since my Studienkolleg days already started. I moved from Mannheim to Marburg on 2nd of March and it's been really fun exploring the new city. Busy finding rooms, finding friends, and keeping up with all the lectures because everything was in German. Nevertheless i still have a lot of fun studying. I took the last weekend "vacationing" in Mannheim and finally visited Luisen Park. Something that is unbelievable to hear from someone who lived in Mannheim for more than 5 Months. But the weather was really nice to go out and take a walk with friends. And i hope that spring really does come soon, i MISS warm weather.

Snapmade Personalized Iphone Case and Shopping Bag Review

Hello hello! Long time no see! In this post, i will review Snapmade ( http://www.snapmade.com ) 's Iphone case and shopping bag.

iPhone 5/5S 3D Printed Case 
15.46

I ordered this customized case for iphone 5 but you can also order custom iphone 6 case on their website. The designing process was really easy. You can add texts, pictures, or whatever you want on it just by clicking on the options in their website. I personally designed my case first on photoshop then upload the photo to snapmade to personalize my case. The outcome topped my expectations. The case is very durable. I'm a very messy person so i will scratch or ruin everything in a very short time. This case still look beautiful after some time! amazing! I would definitely buy another one.

Grocery Tote Bag
13.26

This is now one of my favorite items. Living in Indonesia, where plastic shopping bags are distributed freely, having a shopping tote bag is unimaginable. But now since i'm living in Germany,  this item is a must have. I've been looking for a shopping bag that looks cute but also very strong. This custom bag is made of canvas and printed with one of the designs available in the website! Snapmade also provides really beautiful designs that you can just pick and buy, no stress or more effort needed. The design is really cute (It's a CAT , duh :p ) with a witty quote. The printing quality is very good because it doesn't wear off easily. You can fit a lot of products there as well because the bag is very sturdy and strong. 

Overall, i want to say that Snapmade.com is really worth it. You can either personalize your gifts fully or pick one of the available designs. They're also having a valentine promotion ( buy one get one half price ) for a limited time with the code VALENTINE50 ! Hurry and shop away guys!

Thinking Out Loud | Winter Outfit Ideas |

Hello hello! Happy new year 2015 ! I'm welcoming the first day of 2015 by posting this outfit idea / OOTD that i shot with Jacqueline in Munich Botanischer Garten. We went there at 10 in the morning and it looked like a winter wonderland. As an Indonesian girl who hasn't properly experienced snow, i went crazy. Snow looks amazing in photos! But since it's cold, i couldn't properly take pictures as planned. The temperature was -2 and for me it's impossible not to get bundled up and take off my coat. Hope you all enjoy your holidays!

Autumn Tartan

Hallo hallo ! Do you guys miss me? I haven't written much since i just moved to Germany two weeks ago. This is my first ever outfit post to fit the autumn/winter season here in Mannheim. I brought just one dress from Indonesia and came across this simple black dress from Hollister in Rhein Galerie Ludwigshafen. To make it better, it was 70% off. So i tried to style this outfit to suit the punk mod style i've been into these days. Enjoy!

Check it out!
