Sleek as ribbon

hai guys i'm sorry if you dont understand Bahasa Indonesia >.< enjoy the photos hehehe
aku lagi sedikit bingung nih soal blog aku, jadi aku belum memutuskan
mau lanjut bikin artikel di blogku ini dalam bahasa inggris atau bahasa indonesia.
tadinya mau dibikin 2 bahasa gitu tapi males ngetik 2 kali hahahaha
ini sesi foto aku sama Nostalgia Photography berlokasi di Pasar Seni, Ancol.
sebenarnya janjiannya sudah dari sore tapi karena nongkrong dulu di cafe dan make-up
dulu jadinya baru mulainya malem deh. konsepnya "movement"atau pergerakan.
jadi juru fotonya yang bernama Kemal Pasya lebih suka capture foto aku
yang lagi bergerak dari pada pose. menurutku pribadi lebih susah dari pada sekedar pose.
karena kalau lagi bergerak di capture kadang pose udah oke tapi tampangnya asem hahahaha
mana Kemal pakai kamera film gitu jadi aku cemas karena ga bisa langsung liat hasilnya
kayak kalau aku biasa sesi foto pakai kamera digital kan? >.<
gimana kalo aku cuma habis-habisin film aja tapi hasilnya ga ada yang bagus huffff~ :(
tapi untung ternyata setelah liat hasilnya boleh lah lumayan hehe 
semoga kalian suka ya post aku yang ini aku sampai jam 10.00 malam di Ancol lho.
tapi cuma foto kok ga melakukan hal yang tidak tidak #eaa hahahahaha

tentang look ini atasan dan rok flare-nya dari @PopaGoods. sebenarnya itu bukan atasan
tapi dress chiffon yang bisa multifungsi kalo jago mix and match-nya hehehe
kunjungi instagram brand aku di @popagoods
pearl necklace hadiah dari seseorang hehe, owl necklace-nya koleksi aku udah lama
aku beli di ITC Kuningan pas lagi jalan jalan sama teman aku.
suede wedgesnya unbranded ceritanya aku lagi di daerah Kebon Jeruk mau janjian ketemu teman,
tapi aku kebelet pipis jadi aku turun sebentar dari taksi dan nebeng toilet di salah 1 mall
kecil gitu. eh menuju toilet ada yang jual wedges ini yang aku suka. meskipun basic item
tapi gampang di mix and match-nya <3 emang kalo jodoh ga kemana, niatnya mau ke toilet
balik ke taksi bawa wedges baru hihihi 

"invisible stairs"

untuk dapet shot "movement" di post ini aku harus bolak balik, naik turun, muter kanan muter kiri,
lari lari kecil, naik turun tangga sampai oleng mau jatuh segala abis wedgesnya 12 cm hahahaha
meskipun capek tapi aku seneng sih. semoga kalian (dan kemal) suka hasilnya ya

pose "aduh tembus ga ya" yang selalu dilakukan cewek cewek setiap bulan lol 

kalau kalian perlu jasa fotografer untuk fashion photography,
ulang tahun, wisuda, pre-wedding, wedding, atau sekedar foto foto manja
di sekitar area JABODETABEK jangan ragu-ragu hubungi Kemal di +62898.9076.703
sah sah aja dong narsis narsis manja, hidup kan buat dinikmati dan dikenang ya kan? hehe

Trip to Pekalongan

Good evening where ever you are,
on this blog post imma tell you about my very first stage performance as #JSNavigator
JS Navigator is a talent under Japanese Station agency. its nice to finally meet this girls again.
Me and these cuties named Donna and Edelyn got invited by "Sekawan Production"
to perform in their event called "Fuyu No Sakura" i am so excited because 
i never go far away by train and so does Donna and Edel.
we met up at Senen Train Station Jakarta on 3 pm also with our manager Isnan and my guitarist Yuda.
Donna havent get lunch when we already on a train. i told her to buy some food at canteen compartment on train but when she checked it, it turn out the food is too pricey.
so this babe take off the train and go to nearest convenience store while i am hangin on train door
til she came back so its not moving and left Donna behind hahahaha i am a loyal friend am i? :P
so when finally Donna came back and she bought SO MANY snacks and it turn out cost as much as the food on train compartment LOL geez stupid friend is stupid. cleaning service at train station even asked me "miss why you hangin on the door?" hahahaha anyway we spent about 5 hours on train from Jakarta to Pekalongan. i sit with donna and finally Edel join us to gossip. when we arrived at Pekalongan Train Station around 10 pm two guys named Bagas and Vikko from Sekawan Prodution already waiting and ready to give us a ride to Sahid Mandarin hotel. but in the middle of our way we stop at convenience store and Bagas bought us three different kind of shampoo because none of us bring any shampoo and we are so WHINY cos we use different brand. omg Sekawan Production really taking care of us nicely. thank you so much Vikko and Bagas. 
Finally we touched down our hotel at 10.00 pm i thought we are about to sleep but our manager said to get ready and have a meeting with sponsored. so we went out again at 10.30 pm to "Goedang Kaos" store. i am so excited to show you the concept of this store. Goedang Kaos have a really nice interior with Vespa, and classic Pekalongan "Becak" The owner explain us about he use Pekalongan traditional language as their concept, make the design and print it on best quality tshirt. he also served us "Kopi Takhlil" (Takhlil Coffee) and delicious banana cake :9 me, Donna, and Edel learned some Pekalongan Language, cultures, and also Pekalongan culinary. 

after we visit Goedang Kaos store Vikko and Bagas took us to eat.
we were heading to get late dinner at 12.30 am
we tried "Garang Asem" its pekalongan recipe,
kinda like beef soup but it taste a bit spicy and sour. i really like it <3
i wish i could find this in my city >.< after we finish our dinner
we finally heading back to our hotel, hit a shower and have face mask
before we finally sleep around 3.30 am. i woke up early in the morning to
do check sound with Yuda my guitarist, and the run down goes by
stage interview at 11.00, first performing at 1.00 pm, after first performing we had lunch at
Chinese restaurant at the hotel together. i love how Fuyu No Sakura audience
are so excited to see our performance. even tough it was raining but finally the rundown goes by again
around evening and we had our second performance at 5.00 pm.
i really tought the audience already go back home since it was HEAVY RAIN.
but it turn out everything went fine. it was my very first perform as solo singer.
i feel like i need to practise more and more to be better and better again. ^^
after we finished our second performance
and we took some pictures with event crew, another performers, and some audience.

peaceful breakfast with pretty view <3

thank you for really comfy tshirt Goedang Kaos doesnt it look nice on us? :3 i was actually want that black tshirt which Donna choose but when we visited Goedang Kaos store they run out of size. around afternoon in the middle of my practising session an event crew bring the black "Megono" tshirt to our hotel and give it to me. HOW GENEROUS IS THAT (*O*)/
Goedang Kaos's concept is to promote their city through "pop design" printed on high quality tshirt using their traditional language. even tough Pekalongan known as "Batik" city, but Goedang Kaos prefer to promote their city with something more friendly to youth people. in my country usually old people use batik to attend wedding ceremony. February 1st, 2015 was a nice day to me. i wish i could go back to Pekalongan again cos everybody are so warm and friendly. because me and Donna have an exam on monday february 2nd,2015 so we had to go back right after we finished our perform.
its was such a fun and great experience to me. here are some pictures
#JSNavigator at Pekalongan. enjoy :)

How To Be Pretty?

Hi Diras is back, another fashion diary again. i had photoshoot collaboration with Kemal Pasya from Nostalgia Photography at Ancol, Jakarta. 
last weekend i also had a nice trip to Pekalongan, Central Java for work with my girls.
i'll make super long blog post about it after this one. 
this is the first time i had photoshoot around night. i used to do
photoshoot by day cos the lighting is just easier. i feel like
i look nicer during day light hahahaha or maybe its just my insecurity.
back then i used to be such a VERY insecure girl.
if you know me personally right now you might think its kinda impossible
cos i am such a confident chick >w<
so when i was at Pekalongan, i was with 2 friends of mine standing on the stage
and there's an interview section. here come a girl asking three of us,
"whats the secret to be that pretty?"
and one of my friend answer the question "she always cleaning
up make up intensively berfore she go to sleep"
i dont want to answer cos i think thats quite hard question since
i dont classified my self as A PRETTY GIRL, i classified my self more as a HAPPY GIRL.
but if anyone think that way i feel thankful for that. 
so i dedicate this post just to discuss how insecure i am back then, how can be in
that situtation, and how i handle it til i become the way i am right now. :)

for a girl who admire fashion a lot, we cant never seperate fashion and beauty.
i watched fashion shows on TV a lot since i was in junior school, i admire fashion and beauty
campaign, i am such a detail oriented person when i admire a model
i LOVE how they are so sleek as a ribbon, i love their (extention) wavy hair,
i adore how tall they are, their eyes are brighter than stars, their perfect nose shape (probably
plastic surgery), and also with those skinny body they still have big boobs size (definitely boobs job)
i cant stop compliment them (>w<)

its easy to feel insecure and find 1000 things that i dont like about my self if i keep comparing
my self to "the perfect ones" so i start critizise my self cos i am short, dont have the brightest biggest eyes, dont have perfect nose shape, i dont have wonderful wavy hair everyday, its getting even worst if
my monthly acne bump shows up. i dont want to get out from my house,
if my friends asked me out i found one hundreds reasons to stay.
i feel terrible about my self, i want to change everything about me. believe me i've been
through that sad time. 

some of you probably gonna laugh at me
right now cos i was being DRAMATIC and over reacting. actually i told this story about my insecurity
to another friend of mine. when i was still insecure i thought he will understand. you know what he said

"you know you are pretty and you just say that to get attention from people"

so i shut my mouth up, and i never tell him another important issue anymore since that day.
it was hurt SO MUCH. when you feel a thousand shitty things about your self and people
say that thing about you. this things about me being insecure is happen about 3 years ago.
til one day i met up with my bestfriend Rayi, we are BFF since high school.
we cant meet all the time cos we live far away each other.
so when i met her i told her the whole thing what i feel about my self, she is like another half of me.
and she said
 "your neighbours garden are always greener than yours isnt it?
do you think why boys keep hitting on you if they dont think you as an attractive person"

just two sentences, bring me back to the way i way i am right now. 
having caring people all around you really does feels amazing. 
this post for all boys and girls who feel insecure about the way you look, if you feel too skinny,
too ugly, too fat, cos you feel like society always judging you with their eyes.
this post for you who feel like you are not worth it, bookmark this link so everytime
you feel down check out this post. at least you know you are not the only one who feel that way.

these are top 5 secret how to feel pretty and awesome :

1. be with people who makes you feel better about your self

2. critizise your self in a hundreds way. but LOVE it at the same time. 
live the fact that you cant pleased everyone at the same time.
 sometimes people say mean stuff by online,
behind your back, your haters or anything. for example i critizise my self as short,
small pug nose, small eyes, flat breast, and so on so once people say mean stuff about me i already know that anyway. but at the same time i dont want to change any single part of me ;)
at least i am still better than other people who try to bring me down to make their own self feel better. 
"when you know you are great there's no need to hate" 

3. Be kind to others.
i am not that type of religious person but its just my mom tell me that when you do good things
to other then good things will come to you and so does the opposite.
when i told her some haters talk about me behind my back she
just said
  "if they talking bad stuff about you
you are still awesome the way you are it doesnt change anything. have you ever see
people talking bad stuff about others while look happy and pretty? its ok sweetheart let them
get wrinkles" LOL solid.

4. Respect your self
my parents are not that type of overprotective since i was in high school. even tough
i am free, but there's still some line that i wont crossed. i dont drink too much alcohol,
i dont do drugs, i am not smoking. i dont give a shit about future risk suck as liver, 
heart attack, and so on. i care about current outcome such as "i smells bad if i am smoking
(excuse me i am a girl, i want to smells like a thousand roses >u<),
alcohol makes aging faster (look lindsay lohan), drugs make us stupid, even tough
i am already stupid but at least i am trying not to make it worst hahahaha you know what i mean.
i am not playing as Diras the angelic, if you are smokers, drug users, alcoholic i am not judging
at all, sometimes i drink too but not too often. i am just sharing my secret "how to be pretty?"
if you like this artice then great, if you feel like i am fake than its great too"

we are all about to die when its time for us to die, til that day come i let you live
the way you want to and so am i and i want to live an awesome live. if you feel like getting wrinkles
and grey hair faster is awesome good for you. ;)

5. Stop Compare
right now when i look at those models on runways, beauty commercial,
supermodel on fashion campaign, they really beautiful and awesome. just because
i stop being insecure doesnt mean i stop admiring those PERFECT MODELS.
even tough i am not as perfect as them i am good just the way i am.
if i see victoria's secret model i always thinking
"omfg they are so gorgeous, what am i supposed to do to be like them?"
first i can working on my abs then i exercise to make cool abs.
is that better than writing mean comment on youtube saying
"anorexic, boring models, where are the real women, blablabla"
suck it up you are uglier than them. the way girls saying that just make them look even more
pathetic not only outside but also inside. come on we all know
VS angels are perfect even tough so many plastic surgery but the result is great (-w-')
beside that about being tall as model there's nothing i can do about it but even tough i am short,
i am a cute shortie tough ;) hahahaha so yeah if you follow this "top 5 step how to be pretty"
i am not guarantee that you can be pretty in instant, but i do believe that 

"beauty might bring happiness, but happiness always bring beauty"
