Modern Twist

Today's outfit is a combination between feminity and edgy. I couldn't get enough of having too many printed garments in my wardrobe. The latest one that I bought was this Love Bonito Id x Tex Saverio peplum shorts, which has sharp tree branches and a hint of mountain-like scenery print. Paired my shorts with black cropped top and a pair of Valentino heels to complete this modern and minimalist look.

Black Barn

Since the emergence of coffee culture in Surabaya, the numbers of new cafes here keep adding up. It's no wonder because people love to spend their time working, meeting up with clients or friends or just, rather, hang out in a cafe. I went to Black Barn Cafe the other day. Even though the cafe is not that spacious, it has a nice homey vibe that makes you feel comfortable. I do love the industrial theme interior of this cafe and the best of all, it is a good place to take outfit pictures!

Last Minute Valentine's Gift Ideas

 Counting down to one of the most anticipated days for couples out there. Yes, It's Valentine's day. For you who will be having a date night with your boyfriend or girlfriend but still doesn't have any present to give to him/her as a gift. Then, you might want to take a look at these last minute Valentine's day gift ideas!

1. Chocolate

It's one of the most classic things about Valentine's day, it's chocolate. If you are really tight in time, chocolate will probably the easiest to get. However, don't just buy any chocolate, buy the popular brand ones that you know it will actually taste really good. Keep in mind about the packaging too because looks do matter on this occasion.

2. Real Fresh Flowers

It's no secret that girls love flowers. So if you still have a day left before Valentine's day, I would suggest going to a flower shop and get a really nice bouquet of roses. Know that you have to get there early, otherwise, all the roses or pretty much other flowers are gone.

3. DIY Gift

Who doesn't love a DIY gift? When making something specifically for a person as a gift, it means a lot more than just buying stuff in stores. For example, making your own little photograph album is pretty easy. Simply prepare black paper sheets, a small box, your photographs your partner and follow these steps above to create your little photograph album.

4. Handmade Cookies

If you are confidence with your baking skills, try baking your own handmade cookies as presents to him. He'll love it! 
PS:While you are out buying ingredients, don't forget to buy a nice jar or container for your cookies.

5. Memory Box

Forget the cheesy, 52 reasons 'Why I Love You' written on 52 play cards. I think creating a memory box is so much nicer and less tacky. Just simply get a nice decorated box, and write all of your favourite memories with your partner. Adding some photos will be nice too.

6. A Pair of Everything

 Sometimes, having a matching items with your partner is cute. Just like chocolate, a pair of matching cups or mugs are easy to get if you are really short of time!

Hope these last-minute gift ideas helps! Good luck for the big day tomorrow guys!
