Dear My Future Husband

If someday you find this , you might feel thankful. No, It’s not about “How to Take Care of Me When I’m Moping” (not that I mope that much) or “Tania 101”. It’s how I want our marriage to be, or simply, My Dream Wedding. By all means, I’m not pushing you to make all of these come true, it’s one of my dream that I’d want to share with you. I wish we’d have better and more lovelier by that time J

First, Engagement Party.
Obviously, I want it all red schemed. Okay it’s either Engagement party or Wedding in Red, but I guess it’s better in Engagement party. See how gorgeous it’s on them!

that gorgeous make up!!! And it’s super match the theme.

if they have that one in red, it’s my choice.

.. or this. WOW.

You know, just simple traditional kind. With the gifts and all the family and close friends.. Red will make it.

Don’t bother to give me both engagement and wedding ring. I’m not so ring person and even I’m so proud to be your life-partner, I don’t think wearing ring on daily basis is practical. Therefore, I prefer my ring to be simple but elegantly pretty at the same time. LOL, to give you better idea about what I mean, here’s :

.. if it’s possible, it’s in Rose Gold shade. So these years haha

Pre Wedding Photography
It’s been years since we talked about pre wedding photography. You was the one who refuse any sort of pre wedding pictures, no matter what. I wish after years you finally changed your mind and decided to have some.. Look how amazing they’re!

When will we have a chance to dance beside the river (not, it doesn’t have to be real Venetian River for us but you got the idea) and beautifully photographed beside in pre wedding picture?

.. another proof for reason above. Love them!

Not the way we met, but well.. still so pretty.

Simply beautiful. See the jelly fish all around?

And you know how I love classic, castle like, princess and prince things..

..or as lovely as this one? You know, for your love of Car and all.

Totally FUN!

source : Axioo
you sure wouldn’t need any costume for this one. HA!
It’s sure a lot to convince you. Hopefully my wish will be granted *pray a lot* ^______^

Sure it’s all mine, but I feel nice to share with you.. With all the wedding gown, truthfully, it’s really hard to choose. I haven’t choose anyway, just day dreaming.. Unless Vera Wang, it's ultimately winner LOL

not so clear pic from here, I love the whole gown all together. Pretty!

super gorgeous Vera Wang design! Ultimate wedding gown ever.

Make Up & Hair Do
I promise you, I would really careful choosing my wedding makeup and hair do. You want your bride be perfect all day long, right? My own criteria for both aspect are :

  • Not too much, I want everyone still be able to recognize me in my very day. Just me, but more beautiful and radiant.
  • Long Lasting. No question asked.
  • Reliable, means I want to get my make up done as promised in trial and all. I won’t get my trial done with super gorgeous eye brow but turns to be just ordinary eye brow in the big day, for example.
  • Professional. No jam karet and No unimportant trouble.

deep down hair with some braids looks lovely, and I don’t think I want to have my hair all up, neither all down so maybe this one is good choice.

source : Lyzarae Make Up Artist
this is what I mean, just her but way prettier and made up.

I think I’m not so picky here. Gimme simply elegant, pretty eye brow and good lip color that last whole day long, oh and of course super oil free make up, and I think I’d be good. Nope, back to reliability and profesionality aspect I mentioned above, so yeah I’d be great.

I guess it’s pretty much your business and I won’t to interrupt much. But of course, being a kind future life-partner, I’d provide you some ideas..

this color remind me a lot to my nail polish (review is coming), China Glaze Choo Choo Choose You. Don’t you think it’s unique and enchance your feature?

and I always think vest do something amazing to tux. Doesn’t it?

.. and most importantly : PLACE.
Oh My ~ I can’t decide, but I want an Indoor wedding venue. Outdoor wedding is super gorgeous but I don’t want weather be another thing that disturb me. No.

Lovely welcoming section, purple bring something magical and fantastic.

flower ceiling, oh my! And it’s can’t be happen in outdoor wedding

Still wanting outdoor ambiance? Here they’re! Inside the room.

For non so-technical aspect, I think it’s enough here. I’d be happy to discuss more on technical part with you and see the way you look at it ^___^
Can’t wait <3 font="">

Short Review of Secret Key Salt Fantastic Soothing Gel

I know it’s so dying to find very few review about Korean product, so though I know it’s so late, I’d still write about Secret Key’s Salt Fantastic Soothing Gel.

Product description (taken from :
  • All in one Toner, Emulsion, Essence and Cream
  • Contains dead sea salt with full mineral content, offering osmotic pressure effect to emit impurities and create clean skin.
  • Excellent for exfoliating and moisturizing skin to remain fresh and moisturize for hours.
  • Contains chamomile flower extract, rosemary leaf extract, witch hazel extract and portulaca extract from vegetable to soothe sensitive skin by stimulation
  • Contains Birch salp, aloe leaf extract, glacier water and sodium hyaluronate offer to moisture skin to create moisturized skin without dryness
  • Refreshing and light gel texture offer refreshing feeling as soon as touch the skin
  • Paraben, mineral oil, benzophenone, phenoxyethanol, ethanol, steroid, and triethanolamine free. Save for sensitive skin.

Sorry but I don’t get point in no.5.. I think once you get moisturizer, then it makes your skin moist. What is moist without dryness? Haha.. 

In front of bottle (can't be read through pict though) saying :
Light type soothing gel cream like floating on water
This cream can be use for four seasons. It contains salt ingredient so it protect your skin from external stimulus and polluted environment. Botanical extract help to soothe your skin so it's good for sensitive skin.

What would match this baby better than sand beach? The picture is not very clear because it's 98% empty haha..
The packaging is made from thick plastic and even the closure seems like aluminium, it's plastic too. It has 250 ml product inside.
The label is sticker and not printed. I imagined to use it as the real Salt jar after i finished this. Cute or crappy?

 Back side information is not super clear either, but it's all Hanggeul and yeah.. You can read the information above ^__^

Since it’s a toner, emulsion, essence and cream all in one, I usually use it right after washing my face and go straight to make up step.
If you’re using first treatment essence (or any fermented product that supposed to apply right after cleansing), use Salt Fantastic Soothing Gel after that.
When I have acne or bumps, I’d use my acne treatment step after Salt Fantastic Soothing Gel and continue to make up step.

 Told ya, it's almost emptly. But still, you can see the gel is sky blue. It's not too thick, even somewhat runny.
It's strongly smell like Salt *duh* but it won't transfer to your face.

As well as any other gel type product, it does super easy to absorb and leaving no sticky residue behind. I have oily skin, and it doesn’t feel very moist. I guess if you have dry skin, it’s alone wouldn’t be enough for you. Good thing it doesn’t enchance my oil production and leave my skin just like it is.
Being gel type means it doesn’t give any help in coverage like cream moisturizer does. However if you’re simple girl and just using powder after gel, Salt Fantastic Soothing Gel provide a little help to make your powder stick.

PROs :
Light on skin
7 free product
All in one product, though its not very necessary
Travel friendly

CONs :
Despite than it's claim, i think it's just another gel moisturizer
Not locally available

Rating : 3/5

 I think it's a nice, practical product to have specially when i feel lazy to use some layer of product on my skin.

Thanks for reading, hope that helps! :)

Nivea Daily Protection Sun Lotion Light Feeling SPF 25 PA ++

It’s been so long since I crave for body sunscreen that would meet my expectation :
  • Cheap, because it’s something we use a lot in daily basis. Remember that you need to reapply sunscreen every some time?
  • Light feeling because I do not work in Air Conditioner’s room, so I hardly avoid a little sweating. Hot weather doesn’t help.
  •  Has clearly written SPF number and PA. Just to be sure how many protection I got and when I need to reapply.

.. Plus no offensive smell. It’s killing me.

Thankfully, as I said in my post about beauty product I loved in 2014, I meet Nivea Daily Protection Sun Lotion Light Feeling SPF 25 PA ++.

Okay, the SPF number is the one caught me. Thank you!

This little one clearly meet all my need. It’s clearly written SPF and PA, light feeling and considering I bought it for  IDR. 15,000/100 ml bottle when It was on launching sale, it’s really cheap. Later I found it’s normal price is IDR. 25,000/100ml. Not so much cheaper than Vaseline’s, the one with SPF number written on. Vaseline’s usually retailed for IDR. 30,000/100ml bottle.

back of bottle, and ingredient list (click to enlarge)
Okay, I’m not an ingredient expert, I took the information from here and there (source will be written in the end of post) to keep my post handy. Not only for my reader, but also for my own self.

Sun Protection Ingredient in Nivea Light Feeling SPF 25 PA ++  are :                                         
  • Ethylhexyl Salicylate : used to absorb UV B rays from the sun. It has oily consistency and emits mild floral fragrance.
  •  Octocrylene :  has ability to absorb both UV A and B. However, it can penetrate into skin and act as photosensitizer, resulting and increase production of free radical or in sort, potential carcinogen side effect. But, those are just resulted in product with high concentration of Octocrylene.  
  •  Butyl Methoxydibenzoylmethane : is also known as Avobenzone. Is an oil soluble sunscreen agent and being in “Chemical” sunscreen category. It protects skin against entire UV Rays. Avobenzone tends to significantly degrade over time under light, causing needs to use it together with more photostable ingredient like Octocrylene.

Perfume has listed as latest ingredient on list, no wonder it doesn’t strongly smell like another nivea product, and the scent isn’t last long. Nivea’s scent usually killing me, too offensive for my own liking. Lucky this one is not, still the same scent but much lighter.

sorry for messy look, it's been almost empty

actual product
True to be said it’s has light formula and easy to apply. Not as easy as gel lotion, but still in light category. I’ve given it to some friends to and all said it’s light and lovely.
More importantly, it does keep my skin from darkening while sun is up outside.

Light formula
Locally available
Has SPF number written on
Both UV A and B protection (broad spectrum)
Less offensive smell

Only available in 100ml bottle

Rating : 4.5 out of 5
Highly Recommended!
