Saturday






It's an awesome feeling to smell both coffee and mother earth after the rain but with Coldplay's "magic" playing over and over.... Ahhhh... My saturday couldn't be anymore perfect than this. I'm in a coffee shop btw as i type this blogpost of mine, I finally find the best way to write all of my upcoming blogpost. Nope not in my cozy studio in Milan anymore, not in my all white room at home either.  But in the middle of a crowded coffee shop, with headset and all of my chargers and gadget. 

Anyway it's day 3 of my life as a 25 years old woman... Crayyyy, i can't believe it's been six years since i pour my heart out for the first time here in Hippie Gone Mad. My life is still as mad as ever, looking back.... Wow just wow! 

Such an emotional journey.... I'm grateful for all of the people I've encountered in my life. For those who's there since the beginning til now, those who passed by and also people who said goodbye. 

*John Legend's temporarily painless is on right now*

Looking at the picture instead of criticizing my broad shoulders or  my double chin. I finally could accept that my tan line will stay longer than i hoped for and that girl who posed and fighting the heat with a wool outerwear in the name of fashion were in Sydney... We made it kiddo :)

Not in a million years i could predict that in 2017 i will collaborate with an international photographer, shooting my blogpost by the Maroubra beach in Sydney.  Almost naked... I repeat almost naked.... LOL. Covered with Gaudi x Sapto Djojokartiko outerwear, my favorite piece out of their effortlessly chic collection. I feel like I'm in Stella Mccartney's campaign or something, love love love the vibes and the nude color palette. 

The point is... You'll be fine peaches, you did great so far and as long as you keep being kind and keep reaching for your goals. The universe will be by your side, everything you've gained and lost are part of the process. Learn to let go, learn to be chill all the time... I mean all the time... Not all of your partnership will work out, your love life too! You couldn't get everything that you want, but for me i always prefer to get everything that are the best for me. I kept telling the universe that right now i wanna be no one but me (funny how Tony Bennett's Nobody else but me is suddenly playing in my ears). I live in the now and I'm finally could say the sad soppy Cindy is gone and here comes the peachy Cindy! 

Anyway i gotta go my bestfriend's is here... I'm signing off!! Talk to you guys soon peaches, Buon weekend!

A for Alpha









As an Aries i like to be independent, to deal with my problems on my own; to be the boss of my life. When i heard the name of the brand Alpha60 as a part of Australian Fashion Chamber last year i was hooked instantly. No doubt, the construction of the outfits, the silhouette, the juxtaposition between soft and structured. Intricate fabric treatment and a little dose of quirkiness. Every piece is an art, an investment piece that you could wear over and over again.

i love how easy and effortless the looks are and of course, i have an obsession with jumpsuits since last year and so happy when i saw this one! I can eat everything that i want and still look chic ahahaha. Thank you Alex from alpha60

Exploring Sydney Day 1











There are moments that define your life more than the others. Feelings that change you as a person forever. Thoughts that you playback over and over again like a broken records in your head.

Solipsism:

the theory that only the self exists, or can be proved to exist
 
 When i hear Dan the photographer explained it. At first i associated the word with narcissistic, self-centered, ignorant; bottom line... It was all negativity. But, after he explained it more i could understand and could somehow agree with the theory behind the word. Nobody could feel the way you feel, you could never really feel your bestfriend broken heart nor your husbands's disappointment. Feelings are utterly subjective and personal. You couldn't really say "i feel you" really... Because you can't..... or prevent someone to recall their memories.

Our body has its own way to be alive, we're different from one another. We might had a similar experience or feelings but who are we to measure the depth of somebody else's feelings? I learned to not to judge or trying to find out how other's mind work. I learned to let them be, i realized i could definitely try to explain my point of view but i know you could never change others. We all live in our own universe and we're all have the universe inside us.

That being said... Why am i in Sydney again?

On my last trip to Sydney i met lots of cool people and i enjoy the vibe in Sydney so much i couldnt help myself to say yes when i got the invitation to come and collaborated with a few Australian designers and brand in Sydney but yes i do wear indonesian brands here too. Indo represent here! whooppp whooop

I collaborated with Dan Gray and Charlotte from Maq Cosmetics AU and wearing Gaudi Clothing and together we'll create my Australian Journey. These are the first outfit and y'all may all know i had the photoshoot at the opera house. 


More stories, more blogposts and more of my random thoughts during my trip in oz soon...

Enjoy!

Feels Like Home












"It was so right, it was so wrong almost at the same time" - I Can Let Go Now 

It's been awhile, almost a year maybe since i write my last hear pouring session post. No, this is not the one you think about. I actually will talk about my new bag, HA! Gotcha... 
I've been so obsessed with the Dior Defense bag, have you ever have this dilemma whether to buy a new bag or invest on something else? I have that dilemma all the time, since I fully supported myself and i will reach my goals with my own sweat and tears. It's hard to splurge on a couple million for a bag now. I need to think about my future, but then again my future feels empty without a Dior bag on my shoulder, or a well designed apartment, or a hand to hold tailor made in heaven just for me. Hmmm... Hello melancholic Cindy, here we go again. 

Sure our wishes are endless and we could hardly differentiate between our needs and wants. But i found the best solution to all of my indecisiveness with one sentence. Is it feels like home?  If you can't seem to let it go, it was in your dreams and you think you'll go insane if it was sold out the minute you decide to purchase. Go for it sister and brothers in the name of fashion... AMEN.

In life i questioned myself a few times, is this the right thing for me to do? Are these hands the one i'm looking for? Is this bag worth it? Do i really need these heels(ok the answer will always be yes for this outrageous question cause Cindy will never say shoo to shoes)? But then again, the heart wants what it wants whether it's an actual home, a bag or a person. You could feel it, you could feel deep inside your bones if it feels like home. If you want it so much, you miss him so much, you need them so much your hearts begin to ache. Emmm hmmmm... My posts are sometimes way to serious for fashion, way too deep and sometimes even dark. But hey.... This blog is my safe place, your safe place too and i want my blog feels like home too to everybody. 

Jumping to another topic:
Yesterday my friend said love is complicated. I don't think so.... Love is simple, you could feel it deep inside your body and soul. Heartache is real and so do the butterflies inside your belly. But people are complicated, they make love sounds so stupid and wrong. Again, for me if it feels like home then it's a keeper. Everybody wants to find the true meaning of home, some want wedding rings, some want a studio apartment of they're own, some want a family, expensive stuff and precious stones. Some just want to be loved or to own something that they really love. Cause bags are easier to possessed and keep than people... always. Cause an apartment won't disappear after you declare your love and shoes, when you own them they will never walk away without you. Oh Cindy, you're so bitter these days. LOL 

Well you are what you wear they said, I'm currently wearing my defense bag by Dior, Acne shoes and and and andddddd a jumpsuit by Haiku Tony my newest project. Yeay... Shop shop them all in IG: @haikutony.

Ellips Haircare Shine Like Stars Event












Hi Guys, before you asked me about why and WHY! I’ll speak in Bahasa my mother tongue this time because I’m currently teaming up with Ellips haircare in Indonesia so, with no further overdue….

Hello hello loves, seperti yang kalian tahu di instagram accountku beberapa waktu lalu aku menjadi salah satu blogger terpilih untuk hadir dalam acara Ellips haircare #Shinelikestars event bersama 9 blogger lainya. Sebelum ke acara kita semua diberikan kesempatan untuk mencoba produk ellips terlenih dahulu dan mendapatkan treatment rambut special di salon. Akupun mencoba beberapa variant produk ellips untuk tahu yang mana yang cocok untuk rambutku yang selalu di bleach dan lebih rentan dari rambut yang lainya.

Pada saat acara ada Meet and greet session( ada Julia Estelle yang hadir sebagai ambassador Ellips Haircare) dengan blogger lainya dan yang menurutku paling menarik adalah Q&A session dengan hair Expert yang telah dipilih Ellips. Aku baru tahu kalau selama ini shampoo saja memang tidak cukup karena walaupun banyak vitaminya tapi akan hilang setelah dibilas jadi harus banget kita tiap hari pakai vitamin rambut. Kalau mau tahu takaran yang pas untuk rambut kita dengan pakai Ellips kita gampang banget  taunya karena ellips sudah dikemas berbentuk butiran, jadi tinggal pakai satu butir ellips sehabis keramas dalam keadaan rambut masih setengah basah diusap ratakan dari ujung  rambut dan vitamin rambutnya akan diserap dan  menutrisi batang rambut kamu.

Jadi kali ini Ellips mengeluarkan 3 variant baru untuk berbagai jenis rambut loh! Aku lega banget soalnya rambutku kan sedikit “berbeda” dari rambut perempuan Indonesia kebanyakan. Jadi 3 Varian tersebut adalah:

Silky Black: Untuk yang berambut hitam agar hitamnya mengkilat sempurna
Smooth and Silky: Nah ini bagus banget buat kamu yang rambutnya suka kusut atau mengembang biar lebih halus dan ga berantakan lagi
Hair Repair: Aku pribadi paling cocok memakai varian yang ini karena memang untuk rambut yang sudah diproses dan berwarna seperti aku. Kalian harus rajin rajin setiap hari pakai 1 butir untuk menjaga kelembapan rambut soalnya penting banget loh lebih baik mencegah daripada sudah terlambat menurut aku. Gamau kan rambut kalian harus dipotong pendek karena kering?? Pokoknya kalau rambut kamu mau sehat cobain dulu pakai yang affordable seperti ellips.


Untuk Info lebih lanjut kamu bisa klik www.ellipshaircare.com dan di situs ini kamu bisa juga dianalisa rambutnya oleh para expert agar tahu serum mana yang cocok untuk rambut kamu. Selamat mencoba ya!
