Introducing newest products, Marina Body Essence & Marina BB Cream. I got this beautiful beauty kit from Marina two days ago. The feeling of being the first one to try their newest products is awesome. It was an amazing feeling when Marina told me that I officially became a part of Marina Beauty Council (as Marina Blogger). I was ecstatic when they broke the news to me and I knew that this was something amazing. I’ve only dreamt of representing such a great brand so to be able to do so it surreal.
Marina Body Essence.
Body essence with multiple concentrations of active ingredients, making the skin look uneven and keep the spout of your skin cause darkening of skin color. 
Living in Manado and have a lot of activities to do mean I have to spend more time outside. I must pay more attention to my skin. The weather here is easily changing from sunny to rainy, cloudy to windy. It drained my skin and made me looked dull. What a disaster for girls.
Luckily, I have the best companion who can solve this problem : Marina Body Essence that has extra SPF 30 and make your dream to have a visibly whiter looking skin without re-darkening nor dullness come true. Formulated with Superfruit Acai Berry high antioxidant, Vitamin B3 & E and 10x white Yogurt as skin nourishment boost. I really like the fruit scents from this Body Essence. 
*Use at least 2 times a day after take a bath for optimal results*

Marina Body Essence. 
Body essence dengan konsentrasi bahan aktif berlipat, membuat kulit tampak cerat merata serta menjaga kulit kalian dari penyebab penggelapan warna kulit. 
Tinggal di Manado dan memiliki banyak kegiatan membuat aku harus menghabiskan lebih banyak waktu di luar dan harus lebih memperhatikan kulit aku karena cuaca di Manado mudah berubah dari cerah ke hujan, berawan kemudian berangin dalam satu hari, sehingga membuat kulit aku kering dan tampak kusam.
Untungnya, aku memiliki sahabat terbaik yang bisa memecahkan masalah ini: Marina Body Essence yang memiliki SPF 30 dan membuat impian kalian untuk memiliki kulit tampak lebih putih tanpa menggelapkan atau membuat kusam kulit kalian menjadi kenyataan. Diformulasikan dengan Superfruit Acai Berry yang tinggi antioksidan, Vitamin B3 & E dan 10x meningkatkan Yogurt putih untuk meningkatkan nutrisi kulit kalian. Aku juga suka dengan aroma buah Acai Berry dari Marina Body Essence.
*Gunakan minimal 2 kali sehari sesudah mandi untuk hasil yang optimal*
Marina BB Cream.
I don't use heavy make-up on daily occasions and I don’t like putting foundation too often on my face. So I’m glad that Marina has launched this special BB Cream with soft fit formula is light and smooth. It blends perfectly with your complexion. Enrich with;
- SPF 20 PA++ to help protect your skin face with its UVB & UVA protection.
- Lemon to make your face brighter and to diminish blemishes
- Mulberry as moisturizer to help nourish your skin and make your complexion stays soft and bright without oiliness.
What I love about this BB cream is it doesn't feel like you're wearing make-up and it won't cause acnes.
It can be used with or without a face powder. The face will look more natural bright, uniform and more radiant.

Marina BB Cream. 
Aku tidak biasa menggunakan make-up tebal untuk kegiatanku sehari-hari dan aku juga tidak suka memakai foundation terlalu sering di wajahku. Aku sangat senang ketika mengetahui bahwa Marina telah meluncurkan produck BB Cream dengan soft fit yang ringan dan halus serta menyatu sempurna dengan kulit wajah. Diperkaya dengan; 
- SPF 20 PA ++ untuk membantu melindungi kulit wajah kalian dengan perlindungan UVB & UVA. 
- Lemon untuk membuat cerah wajah kalian dan untuk mengurangi noda.
- Mulberry sebagai pelembab untuk membantu menyehatkan kulit kalian dan membuat kulit tetap lembut dan cerah tanpa keliatan berminyak. 
Apa yang aku sukai tentang BB Cream ini adalah aku tidak merasa sedang memakai make-up dan tidak menyebabkan jerawat.
Dapat digunakan dengan atau tanpa bedak wajah. Wajah akan tampak lebih cerah alami, merata dan lebih bercahaya.

This is gonna be a long post because I uploaded bunch of my campus look photos. I finally got my favorite color on my hair, PURPLE has become a part of my identity since I was in junior high school. There's rarely a day when I go without it lol anyway it's been the third time I recolored my hair and I'm thinking to recolor it again and yeah I got my hair done a month ago, do I look nice with short hairs?
Many people looked like dislike my decision to dye my hair, whoah I don't really care, luckily I got my permission from my parents before I do it. Well, the hardest thing to do in life is to hold on to what you believe when other people disbelieve. When the belief in your heart is that strong, it must mean something. Never underestimate your own heart. 
To be completely honest, I’m incredibly lucky to be doing what I’m doing as a Marina Icon Beauty blogger. I love this side job and the amazing opportunities that come with it. I want to thank you all for making it all possible, I owe it all to you! But I am scared about facing the real world vulnerably if ever this dream comes to a halt for one reason or another. I’m not exactly sure if you guys know what I mean, but the point is that I really enjoy everything I do and I hope you guys take some good out of it too! It’s a meaty Friday story, happy weekend!

I have learned for the past 3 years that just because my main identity as a style blogger doesn’t mean I have to write down about fashion news and giving different style advices everyday, yep I think I've shared some style advices I know almost every time I post about outfit posts that make me feel like I say the same thing over and over again and I just try to use different words when I reiterate them. I always want to share something more than what I wore for the day, I choose to write about what I need to say related to my life story especially when I've exhausted and squeezed out all the life lessons. I even have a couple of posts where I tell you I don't know what to write anymore but I hope that you get to this sentence :) All I'm trying to say is, I hope that you will still stay with me despite this abstract thoughts I'm currently having. I promise it'll be better after this very stressful weeks but it's still a blessing that I don't run out of things to randomly talk about with you guys and hopefully I will come up with better blog posts when my mind has rested someday :) so, let us keep cheering and looking forward to a better day and to be a better person. Keep calm and let it go the things you cant deal anymore.
Anyway, I have a story related to this outfit, these photos bellow was taken at the day after I took my last final exam 4 months ago, the day when I had no idea to start joining a new community with aggressive skaters and slalom skaters here in Manado. I and my friends decided to officially say goodbye to that stressful week by celebrating with some cola floats, french fries, ice creams and fried chickens at McDonald's and suddenly I asked my friends to take my OOTD outdoor. Long story short, we ended up taking my OOTD photos at the skate park near McDonald's, I remembered that day was still full with people who pass by at the park because it was still fasting month but I didn't give a care with those people (even some skaters) who gave their weird stares and I truly enjoyed being photographed by my friends. The funniest part is when it still remains on my mind about the words which came out from my mouth that day, I said it to my friends that 'I dont care with their stares (skaters) who literally seemed a little bit confused to witness my activity (as a blogger). Who knows someday I might befriend with them' and now, coincidentally I really made friends with them now. First impression, they all looked so arrogant, but after that I see that they are totally humble and so friendly even some of them gave their know-how about tricks to be a good skater for newbie like me.
