dot COM

SO!!

I finally have my own domain ZOMG!!

So.freakin.excited about it lol

I have been wanting my own domain to get rid of the blogger subdomain for a really long time, but I've always thought that it will be rather costly so I never take the plunge.

Then, yesterday, at an event, I met Elin from elinivana and we kinda talked about getting domain (well, I asked actually). As it turns out, it's not really that expensive at all. I thought it would cost around 100k-200k (in IDR of course) per month, but it's actually 100k (around $10) per YEAR. Silly little ol' me thinking that it was monthly price.

Anyway, after I got home from the event, I immediately bought my own domain. Thank God lilyzhen.com is still available. FYI, I've been eyeing lilyzhen.com several times before just to see if anyone snatched it yet. Lucky no one else named Lily Zhen wants to have a website lol. Now, if only I can get the username lilyzhen for my instagram, email, and twitter, that'd be purrfect :p


That's pretty much conclude this post, just wanna let you know that you don't need to type in .blogspot again to visit my blog :)

I'm editing a nail art tutorial I filmed LAST YEAR now and I realized that I haven't posted the nail art tutorials on my channel in this blog for a really really looooooong time, so I'm probably gonna spam this blog with my old nail art tutorial videos!

toodles,

Back to the Start

Do you know what I haven't been doing in this blog for a while (other than neglecting it lol)?

Write about all the random things in my life.

The reason why I started a blog way back when I was in high school (5 years ago wtf I feel so old) was to keep a virtual diary and I just like to write about random stuffs that's been going on in my ordinary life.

If you see the blog posts that I wrote in the early years of this blog (especially ones in my old blog), you'll see that most of them are random posts with no purpose or beneficial value whatsoever. Sure, they weren't interesting to read for other people, but at least I love reading them from time to time just to reminisce.

Then, I started to write reviews, and I see those posts are the ones that get more hits, not that I have a lot of hits now, but from those few hits, review posts are the popular ones, and what people are actually interested to read. Even though getting hits is not my main goal, I thought to myself, "Well, if people like my reviews more, then I'll write more reviews". I'm not saying that I've been diligently writing review (let's face it, my last review post was months ago), but I decrease the frequency of me writing random things that I just feel I wanna write about.

I became more concern about the picture's quality in my blog. I tried to make my pictures as nice to look at as I possibly can. I'm not gonna lie, when someone comment that he/she likes the pictures in my blog, I'm over the moon. With that being said, decent pictures = more effort = more time consuming, which is one of the main factor why my blogging has been crazily decreasing over the years. I'm just not committed enough to this blog that I'm willing to spent hours a week just to post up a review. First and foremost, I have classes to go to and thesis to write. Second of all, I'm more committed to my youtube channel than this blog.

My youtube channel is a sort of creative outlet for me to share my interest in nail art and all things beauty and maybe to share a tip of two about the aforementioned subjects. In other hand, my blog was an outlet for me to rant and keep memories about my life, about what I'm going through, and simply, just anything about my day. Thus, when this blog started to turn from lifestyle blog into more beauty/nailart-ish blog (I added the "isn" because I'm nowhere posting enough posts about those things regularly for this blog to be in those category), I just kinda lost interest in it.

Beauty reviews/posts were never something I want to do on a regular basis, in between posts maybe, and frankly, the random things are the ones that I look forward to look back to in the future.

I don't know what's the point of this post haha, but as for the trigger, I was looking at the blogs that I followed and I saw iamyoursuperwoman. A singaporean blog that I followed long long time ago and probably one of the blog that intrigued me to start blogging. I do remember it was the first blog that I read and I was enjoying it and I ended up reading all of her entries. It was a simple lifestyle blog and she just wrote whatever going on in her day, but it was a fun read for me and I thought that this blogging about your day thing seems kinda fun.

She has closed down her blog for a while now. At a risk of sounding really creepy, I tried to look online that maybe she changed her domain or something, you know, stalker style, but found none. I find her deviant art that has been abandoned long time ago, but I can't even find her twitter and instagram (I remember I saw her twitter and instagram sometime back) now.

Anyway, I was feeling a bit sad about it, but I remember how much I enjoyed reading her blog and it reminded me of the reason I started to blog. So long story short, I'm probably going to post random stuffs again (with beauty post from time to time), they might not be helpful whatsoever for others, but they will serve as what I started this blog for, a "virtual diary". One I look forward to reminiscing about years later.

xoxo,
Lily

Monthly Montages - July

Man, my posts lately have been nothing but monthly montages. Not going to blame you if you're bored. I mean, I myself will be if all there's to read are a string of monthly montages. Still, I'm going to do the July's monthly montages as a digital diary :)



  • Went to Jember in early July. Look at how freaking adorable my cousin is. His face is so innocent, act like have no sin one haha. Also remind me a lot of Shoalin kids with that super chinese face and bald look lol
  • Also went to my grandpa's farm and picked some over ripened eggplant. That's my brother showcasing our loot :p
  • Saw this on 9gag and laughing my ass off
  • Hakata Ikkousha, my fav ramen, finally open in Jogja!! Too bad the one there is halal only, so no pork ramen. The chicken broth is still super awesome though, just no as rich.



  • My first time voting for presidential election :D
  • Pesto pasta from Nanny's Pavillon Jogja. I remembered it to be mediocre when Sam ordered it in Nanny's Pavillon Flavor Bliss, but this one really good!
  • Successfully made my first molten lava cake! Used EntertainingWithBeth's recipe. Her recipes that I've tried really are fool-proof.
  • Made "Bakwan Jagung" (corn fritter?)! My favorite "gorengan" (fritter?). I like ones with lots of corn and more on the thinner and crispier side. The one I made is cheat one though, out of a box haha (I used Mamasuka), but they were still so freaking delicious. The best bakwan jagung I've ever tried!



  • Got these unique earcuff from Berrybenka. Haven't had a chance to use it though.
  • Met up with my middle schools friends. It's been around 4 years I think since I have met them, so happy to be reunited!
  • Breakfast in bed for my mom's birthday :D
  • Made funnel cake using Laura Vitale's recipe. It's good. It was my firs time eating funnel cake and it tasted like crispy powder sugar donut!



  • Ice creams from Mary Anne's. 
  • Also from Mary Anne's. I don't remember the flavors of these though. I think I had Banana Nutella, Nutella Cheesecake, Baileys, and the other one I forgot.
  • Finally tried spam musubi!!! Have been wanting to try it for years, but couldn't find it anywhere. This one is from a Hawaiian Resto in Central Park (don't remember the name). It was good, but the spam is too thin though, like almost crispy thin :(
  • First meal I cooked at the new place. Instant ramyeon haha. Look at that perfectly poached egg though!



  • Sam trying out the jacket I got him for his birthday <3
  • Finally went to see the fault in our starts. Thank God it's still on after about a month since its premier. I refused to watch the movie before I read the book, so finally read it when I got back from Jogja and finished it in 3 or 4 days I think. That's fast for me, I usually took weeks to finish a book because I pace it out slowly.
  • FOTD for Sam's birthday dinner :)
  • First breakfast I made at the new place. Beautiful, fluffy scrambled eggs, toast, and cheese sausage. Yum!
And that's a wrap! take care, xoxo

Clearing Out My Nail Polish Stash

A couple days ago was a lazying day for me since I finished and uploaded a new video on Youtube (It's a Beach Photo Collage DIY. Click  HERE to watch) and haven't recorded a new video to edit, so really, nothing to do. Plus, it's still Eid Mubarak holiday (today is the last day).  And just fyi, I'm also still on my summer break from school until mid september :D Too bad I have to work on my thesis so I still have to go to uni a couple times a week T___T.

Anyhoo, enough with the rambling. Basically since I have nothing to do for the rest of the day I decided to organize and clear out my nail polish stash! Something that I've been wanting to do but kept postponing it for the sake of my laziness lol. But seriously though, the thought of having to go through all the nail polishes, checking if it's still usable, and reviving the ones that still can survive with few drops of nail polish thinner just intimidate me. Again, with the babbler. Before I start blabbering again let's just start with the photos, shall we?



This is after I sorted out all my nail polishes by brand. It's no surprise though that Etude House is the dominating brand since that's my go to nail polish as of now (It's quite affordable, the quality is good, and has a really wide range of nice colors).

The second dominating ones are The Face Shop and Oriflame. I actually find The Face Shop nail polishes to be okay only (the cheapest range one) and much prefer Skin Food, but TFS is cheaper at that time when I went gaga over a sight of nail polish (I still am now, just on a much lower dosage).

As for Oriflame, I can say that it's an old favorite. Not because it has super awesome quality or anything like that (the quality is pretty decent), but because it's my first nail polish brand that I collect when I started getting into nail art. If you read my nail art related posts on my old blog HERE, you'll see that I used a lot of Oriflame products. My mom used to buy me some every month, so Oriflame nail polishes will alway have a soft spot in my heart *ciaaahh bahasanya*.

Also, I'm quite impressed that I have quite a number of Essence nail polishes, considering I got them only on 2 shopping trips (last year and this year) and comparing to, let say, my Revlon, where I more often frequenting the counter. I guess Essence just has a lot of nail polishes that caught my eyes (believe me, I've restraint myself from getting more on each of those 2 trips). You can get Essence now in Guardian Indonesia, but the price is rather ridiculous, so I myself not gonna even bother.

I think the next growing nail polish stash will be the Maybelline Color Show that just launched a couple months ago since they're affordable (I got them @Rp 23,000.00 each) and you know, new stuffs just always caught my attention. Speaking of new, Sephora is finally open in Plaza Indonesia!!! Ahhh, I can't wait to go there. I've been waiting forever for Sephora to open its door in Indonesia :)



This is the unusable stash that I'm gonna be throwing out. More than 50% of those are the super cheap, unbranded, and Pokari nail polishes though, so I don't feel really guilty about throwing them out (They are all already super sticky and unrevivable and some I've used up).

The other half are Etude House, TFS, Revlon, Oriflame, etc and almost all of them I have used up and the remaining I've used more than half before it became unusable.



I was planning to store them again according to brand, but after a second thought, it didn't make sense to store them like that since it's not gonna be any easier for me the next time I browse through them, so I finally decided to store them according to color.

It just makes it all visible to me. For example, I can know all my options when I want to search a red nail polish, because frankly, I really don't remember all the red (or any color for that matter) shades that I own and more often than not, some of them were forgotten since they got buried deep at the back. #nailpolishaddictproblem

So, yeah, I separate the reds, pinks, oranges/yellows, purples, nudes/browns, blues/greens, glitters, metallics, whites, blacks, topcoats/basecoats/treatments.

I jumbled up some (like blue and green) for the sake of space and sometimes for color like bluish mint, I don't know if I should put it together with blue or green lol.


I used folded aluminium foil to separate each color, because..well, no reason really, it was just what I can find at that moment hehe. The good thing though, aluminium foil is pliable, so it makes the separation space much more flexible than if I had used something like wood plank. The bad thing is, well, it's not really good to look at. At least it works, no?

So this is how I store my nail polishes as of now, just on one of those 4-tier drawer. I know this is not the best way to store a nail polish because it's all jumbled up like that and it's better to store nail polishes up right. Heck, this kind of organization isn't even pretty to look at. But, this is all I can do for right now since I have limited space. I have thought of a nice way to store nail polishes, but that required much more space, so maybe in the future :)

take care,
xoxo Lily

Monthly Montages - May & June

I guess it shouldn't be monthly montages if I kept doing it bimonthly like this :p

May and June were a busy month for me school wise because it's the end of the semester and I had lots and lots of projects to be submitted, thus the long hiatus on this blog (I tried to post up more videos on youtube though). I'm actually on my final exam right now.

The good news is, next semester is my 7th semester and I only have 4 classes in total, so I only need to go to campus twice a week (YAAAAAYYYY!!), but meanwhile I'm also gonna be doing my thesis.

All in all, I think I'll still have a lot more free time next semester (5 non-school days a week baby!), so hopefully I can be more active on both youtube and this blog. The point of this long story telling is that I'm probably gonna do monthly montages actually MONTHLY starting next month :) Aaaa, I'm so excited to finish this 6th semester (still have final exam to tackle)

--------------------------------------------------------

Whoa nelly, it has been almost a month since I last blogged. That above intro was written in the end of June, but somehow I never finished up this post even though I only needed to put captions on a couple last pictures. So, here we go, lemme finish it up now!

--------------------------------------------------------

May


  • Tried to make blooming onion, it's pretty good. Important tip: ALWAYS double-dip into the batter. My single-dip ones turned out lousy.
  • I think the water in the hotel I stayed in when I was in Singapore is kinda magic. My hair became a lot softer and I got very little tangles when I wash my hair there (also woke up with a wave some more). Or maybe the water here in my boarding house just sucks.
  • Got to get an obscene amount of Jagabee whenever I go to Singapore.
  • Also, have got to eat durian in China Town. Love.



  • Finally went to a Bath & Body Works. Everything smelled sooo good. Too bad the BBW there is really overpriced. $32 for a scented candle?! Really?!
  • Also finally tried mentaiko pasta after drooling over it for so long since I saw it on either Xiaxue's or Cheesie's blog.
  • Indonesian McD needs to bring this here.
  • A simple nail art I did to try out the OPI X Mariah Carey nail polish set I got at the Changi airport (I have to wait for 4 or 5 hours so what to do beside shop and eat?lol).



  • Nail polish galore from Singapore. Eek, I'm so excited for my first OPI nail polish!! 
  • Subway has the best cookies ever imo. Crispy on the outside and chewy inside, not too sweet either. My favourites are the white chocolate macadamia nut and raspberry cheesecake. yummy. I NEED Subway in Indonesia please. Their sandwiches are so good too, I love the parmesan oregano bun and honey mustard dressing, kinda craving it right now.
  • So sad Lolabox decided to closed down :( After their 1st anniversary no less. I guess that marks the last beauty box standing in Indonesia. I wish a great future venture for Lolabox team :) Receiving Lolabox had been one of my monthly highlight for the last 9 months. Thank you!
  • Saw this on FB and decided to make it. It's like egg in a basket but better!



  • Went to Chakra at The Breeze BSD for a study session. All the food that I tried there were good. I definitely recommend that beef thingy on top, don't remember the name though. Their mushroom soup too!
  • Their molten lava cake was also yummy. Basically everything we tried there were either quite good or really good, so no harm in trying out their stuffs.
  • This vanilla ice cream from Gyokuro was so milky, love it. It's at Mall @ Alam Sutera top floor near Sogo.
  • Bought this Japanese melon from Ranch Market for 30k (wtf so expensive for a melon), but so worth it, very sweet and juice. Really made me want to try the real deal, I think the famous one is Hokkaido melon, right?


June


  • Uploaded my first lookbook video! It was a lot of fun to film. click HERE to watch :)
  • Purple everything cos I love some purple
  • Finally tried the risotto at Pancious after drooling over it for a year, but could not justify the price for it. You know, with me being a total cheapskate and all :P It's pretty good btw.
  • One of the reason why I moved. That was the situation in my old boarding house. The AC broke down and was drippin' all this water (some got onto my laptop wtf), drenching some electronic boxes I have underneath the table and almost gotten into the wiring. I already complained and it needs more than a week for the owner to finally call a repairman wtf. And even then, the AC is still kinda broken. It has been kinda broken for the past 2 years anyway, it just gotten more and more broke. So I said peace out to that boarding house (I also have other functionality -or rather not functional- reasons of course).



  • Strawberry parfait :9 from this green tea place at Mall@Alam Sutera (can't remember the name) It's Gyokuro, just saw it on the picture above which I'd written the caption last month lol
  • Aaah Uniqlo tank top galore. It was on a pretty good sale (30% off I think), so me and my mom bought like 10 pieces. Yup, I got her addicted to Uniqlo tank top too. It's the only clothing piece I'm currently willing to splurge on to be honest. It's a great basic and fit your body nicely, the fabric is soft and nice too.
  • Toying around with some nail art for 4th of July and clearly failed lol, so I filmed THIS tutorial instead.
  • Tried the Italian fish and chip from Fish & Co. Who knew that marinara will goes great with deep fried fish stuffed with cheese.

Alrighty, that concludes my May and June montages and as per usual it filled with food. Anyhoo, I'm finally settled right now, I'm done with the moving, the exams, and all other little things, plus I still have summer break until mid-September (woohoo!), so I'm hoping right now I can focus on my thesis, youtube, and this blog. Wish me luck! ;)

Take care, xoxo

[Deborah Lippmann] Nail Polish - Razzle Dazzle (Review & Swatch)

In this post I'm only going to show you swatch, color description, and the quality (opaqueness) of the product, for the basics of the product (price, quantity, cruelty-free or not, etc) go HERE.
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------


Hi internet friends, today is another Deborah Lippmann review day and I'm going to review Razzle Dazzle



This post also has heaps of pictures, so let's start, shall we? :)

1 coat
2 coats
3 coats
Opaqueness
You need at least 3 thin coats to get to its full opacity, which is quite good for a jelly-based nail polish.



Color
It's very dark purple, almost black, jelly base packed with a lot of raspberry glitters. The glitters are different sizes of fine and smaller glitters. I feel like this mix is perfect if you want to wear black nail polish, but at the same doesn't want to look too "goth" since from a far it looks like a black nail polish with a glittery twist.



Finish
This nail polish gives a bit of a textured finish, not quite enough to be qualified as a textured nail polish, but you can definitely feels a bit of grittiness. If you don't like that quality on a glitter nail polish, then just put on a topcoat. Also, because of the jelly base, the finish look looks a tinsy bit like jelly sandwich mani. 

One con is probably the fact that once it dried, the finish doesn't really have a nice shine and the glitter doesn't sparkle as much as I want it to be. Easy solution for this is also just put on a shiny top coat like Seche Vite or Etude House Ultra Shine. See, top coat is EVERYTHING people!



Formula
The formula is mostly very easy to work with, it glides smoothly and distributes the glitters evenly. On the first layer, the application of the glitter might be a bit uneven, but afterward it's really easy to get a neat application.

One thing to remember, I read that this nail polish stains, so wear a base coat. I personally removes a nail polish immediately after I swatch it to swatch as many nail polish as I can, so I didn't experience this myself, but, you know, just fyi :) *note to self: wear a nail polish for a few hours at least when writing a review for dark and red toned nail polish*



Overall, it's a great nail polish to wear on its own and doesn't really need any nail art on it in order to stand out. I do recommend to use this with a topcoat to get the most beautiful finish out of it :) *All pictures shown in this post are without topcoat*

I still have some more pictures of this beauty, but nothing to write, so I'm just gonna leave you with the pics okay? ;)

[Deborah Lippmann] Nail Polish - Nefertiti (Review & Swatch)

In this post I'm only going to show you swatch, color description, and the quality (opaqueness) of the product, for the basics of the product (price, quantity, cruelty-free or not, etc) go HERE.
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

I'm back with the Deborah Lippman individual nail polish review as promised, albeit a day late hehe. The plan was to wake up last night at 10ish (for some reason I do everything better when it's night time and dark outside. Ikr?) because I slept immediately after I got home, but I slept through the night lol. Anyway, feels refreshed now, so let's get this review going..

As I said in the last post, the first Deborah Lippmann I'm gonna review is Nefertiti



I'd say it's a very suitable name seeing as it's a gold nail polish and in my head ancient Egypt colour palette are gold and blue.

1 coat 
2 coats
3 coats
Opaqueness
You can get to its full opacity with just 2 coats, but I always like to add an additional coat just to be sure (It's the OCD in me I think).



Color
Light/pale gold with silver flecks throughout. It's hard for me to find a gold nail polish that's wearable on its own as a lot of gold nail polishes are too harsh and clash with my skin tone and basically just looks "cheap and cheesy" a.k.a norak, so I love how the gold in this nail polish is not too yellow so it suits most skin tone perfectly. The gold is not too in your face either -thanks to the silver flecks-, so I can see this to be worn on a day-to-day basis when you want a little glam.



Finish
It has a nice foil metallic finish with a hint of multi-color shimmer (the multicolour shimmer is very subtle, so on a viewing distance it can't really be seen). 



Formula
For the most part the formula of this nail polish is a dream to work with, it's a nice "liquidy" consistency that allows for a thin and even application, doesn't leave noticeable brush strokes for a metallic nail polish, and dries quite fast, but since it dries quite fast, when I apply a layer of nail polish and still finishing up applying that layer it has became semi-dry and I ended up dragging the nail polish layer and kinda left with a bit of clumps on the tip of my nail. Does my explanation make any sense?lol. Just apply this nail polish quickly without going back and forth with the brush stroke per layer and you'll be fine.



The weird thing is, even though it dries fast, it never really fully dried. What I mean by this is, you know how when a nail polish has dried you can do whatever you want to your nails and it wouldn't make a dent on the nail polish? Well, with this, even after a day, if push your nails with your other nail (?) -like scratching- really hard you'll still be able to make a noticeable dent on your nails. Again, does my explanation make any sense whatsoever?lol. Basically, it dries fast, so not long after you finish applying it you can do whatever you want, but you can never scratch your nails really hard or it will make a dent, or just do a 2 coats and it's fine, even simpler, put on a topcoat.



Overall, it's still one of the best, if not the best, subtle-wearable gold nail polish that I own, so there's that, and other than that weird thing, the formula is great.

[Deborah Lippmann] Nail Polish (Review)

Hi peeps, it's been a while since I actually sit down and blog (let alone do a nail polish review), but first of all, let's all ignore my last emo-ish post, I was just having crappy mood that day. Now let's get into more cheery stuff, i.e. nail polish.

Deborah Lippmann is definitely one of those nail polish that has been in my wish list, especially their beautiful glitter ones, so I'm ecstatic to finally give them a try.

Just like my Etude House nail polish review, I'm gonna do a separate post on the basics (this post) like size, brush, packaging,etc, then another posts for the swatch and individual nail polish review. So let's start with the basics!

source

Basics:
  • .50 fl oz or 15 ml/bottle
  • Prices varies on where you get them. Retails for IDR 261,000 - IDR 287,100.00 on Luxola, US$18 - US$20 on Deborah Lippmann website
  • Cruelty-free
  • 5-free (doesn't contain toluene, formaldehyde, resin, camphor, DBP)
  • Infused with Biotin and Green Tea



Packaging & Brush:

I was actually surprised when I learned that they are 15 ml, that's same amount you got with OPI nail polishes. I've always thought Deborah Lippman has tiny packaging from the pictures I saw in the past, even after holding it on my hand I still had a bit of a hard time believing that it's a 15 ml bottle of nail polish because of its stubby appearance which I think is kinda cute.

As for the brush in this nail polish, they have the same standard nail polish brush size, so nothing really to mention there.



Formula:

I guess the big win in this nail polish is the fact that they are 5-free and cruelty-free. It's still kinda hard to find that kind of nail polish on the market (at least where I live). 



Aaaand the biotin in this nail polish is just the cherry on top ;)


Where to get them?

Well, if you're from the US, I'm pretty sure Deborah Lippmann nail polishes are easily accessible for you (lucky!) or you can get them at the Deborah Lippmann website. But if you're from Indonesia, you can get them at LUXOLA. They also shipped to Malaysia, Singapore, Thailand, Hong Kong, Philippines, Brunei, UAE and Australia + free shipping with min. purchase (min. IDR 315,000.00 for Indonesia).

Use the code "LILY25" to get 25% off any of your first-time purchase there (code valid in Indonesia Luxola, so you need to change the country to Indonesia -IDR- on the top right corner, but you can change the shipping to your country on check out, shipping cost won't be any different), valid through 22 July 2014, or use the code "MOST20" to get 20% off your purchase, valid through 31 December 2014.


I guess that concludes this basic overview of the Deborah Lipmann nail polishes. Sorry it's just boring specifications for this post :/ I'm gonna show you swatches and more colourful and fun pictures in the next post where I'll be reviewing "Nefertiti". Hopefully will be up by tomorrow, initially wanted to post it back-to-back with this post, but I'm already sleepy now and have to prepare for my final exam tomorrow, so I'll say goodbye for now
