legacy of A.B

Hi, guys... maybe some of you have watched this tv show called Extreme Makeover Home Edition before. well, today, I watch the season 8 episode 16, re-building the house of the Brown family. its not about the house I'm gonna talk about, but the cause behind it. so, this is their story:

"We lost our daughter, Alex Brown, in a single car accident as she drove to what seemed like just another ordinary day of her senior year in high school. Although no other vehicles were involved, Alex was not alone. The cell phone on which she had sent and receive over 10,000 text messages in the weeks preceding her accident was with her. Alex lost her life to texting while driving. Although Alex is no longer with us, her memory lives. We hope you choose to do the same. Through Alex's memory we hope to educate others about the dangers of texting while driving.
To honor Alex's memory we formed The Remember Alex Brown Foundation (RAB). The foundation's website is a place to tell your story, to learn from others and to make a difference.
As you drive today, please put your cell phone away and drive safely. Your messages will be there when you arrive at your destination. Make sure that you arrive safely, too."

this is the photo of her car after the accident, and the photos below are photos of wrecked cars caused by distracted driving

so, are you gonna let people you love experience this? let's take the pledge and spread the message!

eventually, I quit the 10 of 10 challenge. I manage to compete until day-5 only. my boyfriend's family made a visit since last Friday and since then, I literally have no time to take a photo of my outfit. his mom is a crazy shopper and yes, I'm s happy to accompany her to go shopping. we've been shopping from 11 a.m til 11 p.m for (almost) everyday! crazy, rite?

so, this is the 5th (last) outfit post I managed to snap before tour-leading my boyfie's family

the LBD is from Goju (online shop from Facebook) which I wore as top on the previous outfit post. accessorize it with a DIY pearl necklace and a metalic belt from random local store in Malaysia. the shoes is from H&M and the clutch is from.......somewhere that I couldn't remember

gradation scraf from Zara, wedge shoes from Rubi - Cotton On and shades from Forever21

oh, and I was holding a bag too from Charles & Keith. these photos are taken outside the kitchen. yes, kitchen.

3rd day of the challenge

these two were candid, my photographer (yes, I have 1 now) was testing the camera, but I like the result somehow. it was taken this afternoon on the gazebo in my apartment. as you can see, I was wearing the black pump shoes from H&M.

the denim vest is from Plopherz and basic tee from GOJU (both are local brands and you can find them in Facebook) while the belt is from Forever21 and the acid-washed denim pants is from Zara.

I was wearing the beaded necklace is DIY, then the leather bag is from Longchamp (although you can't really see it in this photo here)

ah! almost forget. see the woven beret on my head? that's from Forever21 and I got it only for IDR 60.000, so cheap rite? :)

10 for 10 outfits

maybe some of you've heard about this challenge by FDF. for you who doesn't know yet, we have to choose 10 items to be mixed & matched for the next 10days. and yes, I join the challenge. its so exciting!

1. white loose top from Zara
2. denim vest from Plopherz (ol-shop in Facebook)
3. black high-waisted shorts from Forever21
4. brown capri pants from Mall Atom (Surabaya)
5. lime green tanktop from Forever21
6. black basic top from Goju (ol-shop in Facebook)
7. acid-washed denim pants from Zara
8. latex legging from Forever21
9. black pump from H&M
10. beige wedge heel from Rubi - Cotton On

I chose these 10 basic items from my closet. why? bcause I'm a student and I always think "what to wear" everytime I open my closet while in hurry to go to college and since I usually take public transport to go there, I don't want people keep starring at me in MRT if I wear too eye-catchy stuff. reasonable enough?

and this is my day-1 outfit. I was wearing items #4, 5, 9 with bowler hat from Grinitty Shop (ol-shop in Facebook),and scarf from random stall in Malaysia.

sorry for the bad quality photo though... I'll post a better photo tomorrow, can't wait! :)

home alone!

Hi, there! what were you doing on Sat-nite? I'm just staying at home, A.L.O.N.E, playing smurf village for the whole nite. My boyfriend is having internship and he got nite shift, so he couldn't take me out this weekend.

what are you doing during the 'nothing-to-do' time? me? I'll take photos of myself, Hail Narcism!

anw, please bear the super messy room.. its not mine, fyi.. its just that my room isn't really strategic for me to take photo (no place to put my camera) and yes, poor me that I don't have a private photographer :(

enjoy! :)
