Paisley Pretty Package

Is there a better way to start the first working day of 2012 than finding a pretty package on your office desk? I found this lovely box of white, blue and green on the morning of January 2, 2012, waiting neatly for me next to my computer, and thought: "It's going to be a great year indeed..."

And no, I wasn't wearing a tablecloth, hehehe. I was wearing a bat-style, tailor-made top made of a piece of paisley batik print fabric. I usually don't go for paisley nor these colors, but when I saw this fabric I just fell for it, and knew exactly what I wanted it made into: this very top!

Top and skirt: tailor-made. Shoes: Yongki Komaladi. Purse: Guess. Bracelets: Le Marie. Earrings and Camay necklace: Bugis Junction, Singapore.



And this is what I received as a giveaway prize from the lovely Priscilla Clara from http://www.priscillaclara.com/, sponsored by Pond's. Thank you, Priscilla! I even like the container, I won't throw it out, love it!

Inside the little box, I found all these facial soaps from Pond's newest skincare line in various sizes. It came with a note from Priscilla. Thank you, dear! You really made my day!


Luckily, I'm one of those girls who can use basically almost all kinds of facial foams, not just a particular brand. I usually use other brand, but with this prize, I'd definitely use Pond's for many months to come! No need to buy facial soaps anymore!

The package also came with this little orange Surfer Girl makeup bag, perfect for traveling!

So, thank you again Priscilla, for this delightful package, and Pond's for sponsoring this giveaway she held!
What a great way to start a great year... ^___^

@Marian: Thank you, Marian! This is my first paisley, actually, perhaps shud wear more of them!

@Girlie Blogger: I look like a Bat Girl, do I, haha!

@Andreia: Have a great week for you too, Andreia!

@Bessie: I know, and Pond's products are getting a bit overpriced here, too, because they've been having huge marketing campaign and TV commercials for the past years! I used to use Pond's cold cream in the US, perfect for removing makeup and so damn cheap.

@Makaila: Thank you! It's thrifted, actually.

@Helena: Thanks Helena! COntinue to take great pictures, ya! Want to be my photographer? Hahaha!

Hello again! Saya belum pernah mengambil foto di event-event seperti yang anda sebutkan, selama ini saya baru memotret beberapa event hari raya di mall-mall Jakarta, mengingat saya masih pemula di fotografi.. Hehe.. But if you want to invite me to those events, I'd love to come and take photograph :D

Sincerely, Helen.

Awww, bagus sekali :)) ibuku juga suka pakai blouse model kalong gitu, cuma aku ga pantas kayanya :D senengnya dapet paket ponds, lucu packagingnya. Oya, tas ku memang dari carrefour bandung, belinya september 2011. Tapi limited, cuma beberapa hari (/minggu?) aja adanya :)

Indi, dunia kecil indi.
