Rosegal Floral Dresses: Because Beauty Is Not About Your Age Or Weight

Reading Time: 6 minutes

Hi everyone! 😀

On this opportunity, I’m so excited to write a post in collaboration with Rosegal, one of the leading global online shopping destinations who not only understand the passion of their customers in terms of fashion, but also dedicate their professional service to customers by offering free shipping around the world!

What I (and maybe you will too!) love about Rosegal is that not only do they focus on fashion in general, but they also combine two things that I personally love: vintage and plus-size dresses.

I love vintage dresses, and although I can’t consider myself as a plus-size, I have a few best friends who are and yes, they struggle to find cute dresses in their size. And Rosegal, Rosegal has it all! 😀

Living with Stereotype and Expectation: Being A Sundanese Woman

Reading Time: 5 minutes

I suppose we all agree that it’s almost impossible to live without any stereotype and expectation. In the broader scope, I suppose there are some sexist thing about how men and women do the job or live their life. And to get it smaller, there’s also some prejudice based on things like religion or where they come from.

Maybe you’re the Brit who can’t even make your tea right so you feel like a failure for not being able to do what the society expects you to do. And for us Indonesian, maybe it’s such a failure for never visiting Bali. You see what I did there? I am that failure. 😛

But even among Indonesian, as we get used to dividing ourselves with ethnic, religion, and all that, I came across to make this post. In particular, I’m actually interested to find out what stereotypes that people have towards me.

And this time, what I did is to google what stereotypes out there about Sundanese women in general. I am one of them, and I want to see whether it fits me. And if not, why not?
