(12) Grow Your Friendship
Smile, call your old friends, stop watching Blackberry when you’re hanging out with your buddies, have a tea time with your grandma, free your pet birds from their cage (;P), kiss your Mom on the cheek, hug your Dad, sleep on the grass, talk to a tree, water your flowers, ask your brother or sister to play badminton together…and many other things to do with your beloved ones! Be lovely, lovable, and full of love!
Oh, green, you’re so marvelous. :)
I can be a sweet girl with blazer and dress.
I also transform into a conservative rapid girl when I’m in a hurry.
Me, and fashion. :)
And this guy appeared in Street Jack magazine September 2011. It’s a Japanese street style magazine. :)

-isn’t he handsome!?
(as seen in Girlfriend Indonesia’s fashion spread February 2012 edition)
…excuse the weirdo title. :P
Nutriganics range comes from The Body Shop and was launched in Indonesia last year in April or May…I forgot the exact time. With my craziness of that word ‘organic’, I bought the cleanser, toner, and day cream—though it actually created for first signs of ageing skin concern—but I just so much in that ‘organic’ statement.
So this one is the day cream, which I like but I can’t use any longer for some reasons. It slowly becomes too oily for my combination/oily skin, and I’m not sure is it comedogenic or not.
Actually it’s good. The scent; nice, so lovely! <3
Texture is creamy, a little thick, pale yellow almost white. When applied, it absorbs quite well, but on mine, it leaves a little greasy feeling. :(
Aqua (Solvent/Diluent), Glycerin (Humectant), Simmondsia Chinensis Seed Oil (Hair & Skin Conditioning Agent), Sucrose Stearate (Skin Conditioning Agent), Orbignya Oleifera Seed Oil (Emollient), Silica (Absorbent), Undecane (Emollient), Butyrospermum Parkii (Skin Conditioning Agent/Emollient), Cocos Nucifera Oil (Emollient/Hair Conditioner), Olea Europaea Oil (Emollient), Stearyl Alcohol (Emollient), Glyceryl Stearate Citrate (Skin Conditioning Agent), Tridecane (Emollient), Benzyl Alcohol (Preservative), Sodium Levulinate (Skin Conditioning Agent), Potassium Sorbate (Preservative), Sodium Anisate (Fragrance Ingredient), Salicylic Acid (Preservative/Hair Conditioner), Xanthan Gum (Viscosity Modifier), Parfum (Fragrance), Tocopherol (Antioxidant), Linalool (Fragrance Ingredient), Citronellol (Fragrance Ingredient), Medicago Sativa Extract (Fragrance Ingredient), Buddleja Davidii Extract (Skin Conditioning Agent), Plantago Lanceolata Leaf Extract (Natural Extract), Sambucus Nigra Flower Extract (Natural Additive), Thymus Vulgaris Extract (Natural Additive), Malva Sylvestris Flower Extract (Natural Additive), Sodium Benzoate (Preservative), Limonene (Fragrance Ingredient), Vitis Vinifera Bud Extract (Skin Conditioning Agent), Citric Acid (pH Adjuster).

Ramya et Moi!
Hey everyone! As usual I spend my weekend night by myself (with Mama and Papa at home, but, yeah, you know what I mean! :3), so here I am, blogging!
I just want to tell you how much I gained after I had commited to make DIY face masks and exfoliators! :D
Premiere, I save a lot. In budget. All I need for DIY face mask, for example, Ramya Stroyo, is a box of strawberry. Plus a small jar of plain yogurt. And anyway, I only take one strawberry and 2 teaspoons of the yogurt, so I (and my family members) can eat the rest, before they will be expired! Tadaa! A face mask and some healthy snacks!
Deuxiéme, it works! Man, it works, for real. And without any guilty feeling like, “OMG, it’s expensive, what if it doesn’t do anything? It’s all chemical, can I be sick from this?”. My Ramya Legit smoothens my skin like…magic? On the first usage, I’ve already felt the difference! It’s simple, cheap, and non toxic (except if you’re allergic to honey, maybe).
Troisiéme, it makes you creative too! Add another ingredients (like lemon juice for my Ramya Stroyo), and see how it works. Learn how long the product stays fresh in a refrigerator or what if it is kept in a room temperature (Biology quiz, anyone? ;)). Make a study of your own skin, is it okay with some specific ingredients. Ah, there’s so much from D.I.Y hobby. As long as you have enough time to mix (natural) ingredients and produce your own potions of (additional) beauty (because you’ve already beautiful since you were designed up there in heaven), do the Dee-I-Why! You’ll see the joy of that.
happy Saturday Night! <3
Je remercie pour vous qui avez été gentil à moi aujord’hui. :) Have a blast everyday!

I love Indonesia. Do you?
(11) Smile During Your Actions
Smile, and show ‘em you love this world and your green actions! :)

gather round everybody,
and sing a song to celebrate Earth Day,
tatalyus lagi mahitala!
Les oiseaux chez moi,
ils sont mignons! ♥
UPDATE / JANUARI 2014: Now these birds have a colony. There are 6 of them coming to my house. WHOA. Epic!
(9) Select The Best Thing
Haul is always…entertaining. I admit it. Especially if we talk about cosmetics/ skincare/ bodycare/ etc. haul!
But really, if you don’t want your happy haul transforms into a disaster, please, please be careful and selective of what you buy. :)
Here’s my suggestion:
Always read the ingredients list. And don’t buy anything without ingredients listed on the packaging. Be aware of your allergic. For example, if you’re allergic to cocamidopropyl betaine (hahaha, I picked the name randomly), then avoid it! :) That’s the real benefit of reading ingredients.
Choose the natural-er ones. You have know much about this, right? It’s a global suggestions from around the world. Natural, organic, blablabla. Why it’s good? Because natural ingredients are usually biodegradable, and it’s friendly to your skin, though not everything natural is safe! Please note: Japanese Honeysuckle said as containing parabens, and some kinds of alcohol could be irritating, Google the rest! ;P Btw, remember to read the ingredients. Manufacturers can be tricky. If you read ‘natural’ or ‘organic’ on the front packaging, then recheck its backside. Read the ingredients and prove their honesty! :D
Packaging matters. It would be nice if you always choose recyclable/ recycled/ degradable packagings! :D You may also be creative. Reuse or recycle your empty tubes or jars, turn them into something useful and beautiful! :)
Being more selective can dramatically change your shopping habit, and especially, it saves your budget a lot! :D
Are you ready to be selective? :)

(8) A Pair of Shoes
A single step means something. Those little babies out there, and you maybe, when you were a baby, start their walking movement from a single step.
And so with Earth-Loving attitude! Start immediately, and Mother Earth will thank you very much. :)

(7) Remember Your Little Ones
And this Earth
is for us who live now:
young people with big dreams,
and those kids who is still growing up,
grandma and grandpa who know the time when global warming was such a fantasy,
also animals and plants, in the sky, deep down the sea, on lands,
but Earth belongs to the one who hasn’t been born too,
so keep this globe along with harmony and attitude,
to make it clean and happy
for next generation.
Have a good Sunday! :) Have you prepare your Valentine’s Day?
(6) Mention Your Decarbonation
It looks so hot, isn’t it?
Try to count how thick is the carbon layer above those cars and people and yes, the day is humid + sunny. Oh, and how a claustrophob could react by looking at that place? Even me, I’ve been so intolerable with those crowd caused by ashy vehicle. I prefer to hang around together with birds chirping or elephants walking or smiling people passing than stuck with traffic jam or full booked parking lot!
By the way,
what about public transportation, bicycle, and your feet? :)

(5) Watch Your Hand!
You know you must be so bored of these sentence: "Throw your junks into the trash bin." Or in Bahasa Indonesia: "Buang sampah di tempatnya!"
If you have been extremely hate those words, go, leave this post NOW. Bye bye. But if you are bored, but your heart’s tickled because you always throw your junks NOT into the “it” place, then please do it from now, make it a habit, a lifestyle, a mission.
tatalyus lagi mahitala!

Back to Stuffs!
LOL first. =))
Actually I had planned to write about Stephanie’s giveaway prize from weeks ago, but yeah, I haven’t make an illustration and I should help Mother Earth first.
NOW I will write about those prizes, but without pictures. I’ll make the image later. :P
(voila this is the image, updated 18 days later!)
Maybelline Lip Smooth Color & Care
Quite sticky and heavy on lips, but it gives a nice pink glow that I love, so I use it everyday at home or outside. :) No parabens!
Charmzone DeAge Red Addition Control Cream
This one smells good, seems natural and healthy and authentic. Contains antioxidants and red wine. Use it as a creamy face scrub, and leave for 3-4 minutes before rinsing. After usage, my face felt supple and fresh. And I notice a change from the first time: my acne scars reduced! 0_o WOW! But anyway…I don’t know where to buy the full size. ;P
Etude House O2 White Powder
Phanie told me to use it by mixing with toner. So I do. I applied the mixture to my face. Nice… But then the tiny packaging’s became empty. Bye bye, I haven’t notice a miracle… :)) LOL.
The Face Shop Arsainte Eco-Therapy Super Repairing Serum
As a serum, I give it 7.5 out of 10, because it absorbs well, has nice scent, and moisturized. :) But it’s only a mini sachet away, so I don’t know how far this one can make. Will it improve my skin’s happiness? I have no idea! Haha.
By the way subway busway, thanks again, Phanie! :*
I didn’t throw away the sachets after I use those samples. I stick them to my journal (yes, I have a journal book). :) It makes cute decor. :D
(4) Freshen Up!
tatalyus lagi mahitala-bersatu untuk Bumi-united for Earth
Modern life offers things such as techno-building, canned-food, sausage, hard road, luxury car, air conditioner, geniusphone, and so on, attracts us to live inside the life of speed and artificials.
But don’t you miss that blue sky above, the green green grass, and dragonflies and life without ringtones and machine-chorus? Why don’t you go to a park or your house’s backyard, bring a fresh apple, and eat it, enjoy the crunchiness while you sit on the grass and watching sky? That would be so nice! After 10 minutes long, you’ll be addicted to be back to nature! And btw, yes, apple is SO healthy. :)
(3) There You Go, Animal Lover!
Tatalyus lagimahitala-bersatu untuk Bumi-united for Earth!
Every deforestations harm our buddies: birds, squirells, hares, tigers, leopards, apes, monkeys, owls, elephants, and a lot more of them. They were forced to be dragged anywhere else, sometimes to human residences, and got killed because those people just think about how to get rid of them without knowing that they were in danger, almost killed, maybe.
So why not being wise from now on? If paper demand decreases, then the production will be reduced (okay, that’s the economical logic), and less forests to be harmed.
If that’s too extreme, at least, use recycled paper, or use paper packagings from sustainable resources, just as the one with “FSC” symbol. And recycle your paper if you have the tools! Reuse paper, brochures, flyers, school tests’ results archive (ah, you won’t be like to watch your red score again, LOL), or anything else, be creative with your 3R (Reduse, Reuse, Recycle) lifestyle, Ladies/Gentlemen! :)
I love you all, and please share some love to Mother Earth. :*

(2) Show It To The World!
Tatalyus lagi mahitala-bersatu untuk Bumi-be one for Earth (2)
Sometimes I think, what am I doing? No one even bring a reusable bag in supermarket just like I do everytime. And it was like…I’m the nerdy and they’re the normal majority. What’s the point if it’s only me?! It won’t change anything!
But yeah, it needs some confidence and pride, green-actions. Because we have to spread it like a virus, we should try to look comfortable in our greener way of life, we can smile through the road while wearing T-shirt with 3R triangle and show it exhibitionistically to everyone.
Because they who haven’t understand the meaning of GREEN need living example that looks happy with green lifestyle. :)
Share your thought, fellas. :3

Remember that Mother Earth is our collective responsibility. Don’t just do green act for yourself, do it with everyone around you! Then there will be a gorgeous transformation. :)
Me, Moi, et L'Amour
Hola, this is February now, and the sacred month reminds us of…Valentine’s Day!
In fact, I’m still single and I have no idea why! LOL. :)) But, I’m happy so far.
Valentine doesn’t have to be gloomy if you’re single and should be celebrated everyday, not once in a year. :P
I usually spend My Sweet Valentine with family and friends. Sometimes I made/buy chocolate/cookies for my best friends. They do the same with me. As three single ladies, it’s satisfying enough for us. :)
Naa, on the year 2563 a.k.a 2012, I dedicate my Valentine to: Dear Mother Earth! Why? Because she needs some love. And to show my love, I’ll share green tips every single day, maybe not exactly everyday, but I’ll try to do it everyday. :)
And if you want to celebrate Valentine’s Day with Mother Earth, please share the tips, do the suggestions, and love her fully.
