Hi again, beautravelers! 😀

Now that Around The World With The Beauties has become the monthly feature on the blog, I really hope you still stay tuned for the new feature every month.

For those who get left a little behind, friendly reminder that this feature will be published on the third Tuesday every month. And pretty much like the previous posts, we’re still talking about some recommended local beauty products from around the world.

So, if you’re a beauty enthusiast who loves to travel the world, get some new knowledge on what beauty brand that you should look up whenever you’re planning to go to some new destination! 😉

This time, thanks to Czech Republic’s Dana from DFashion who contributed to a recommendation of Slovakian beauty product Soaphoria’s lip balm and Estonia’s Laura of Oku Moku for her local recommendation, Le’Maagi Highlighting Powder.  Continue reading “Around The World With The Beauties! – (Czech Republic/Slovakia) Soaphoria’s Lip Balm & (Estonia) Le’Maagi Highlighting Powder”

Chez Bon Hostel, The Best Place to Stay in the Vintage Part of Bandung when You’re on Budget

Reading Time: 5 minutes

I remember once when I got randomly connected to someone through a meme in Slavorum, where this meme compared a place in Croatia with Bali. At that time, our conversation continued to go on through Messenger app and he said he’s been to Bandung, my hometown. And he mentioned about how much he liked Jalan Braga.

Last weekend, I got invited to stay at a hostel located exactly in Jalan Braga.

I don’t usually choose hostel as an accommodation whenever I travel, but the offer to stay at the hostel in the infamous stress that was once the promenade of Bandung in the 1920s? It’s not everyday I could get out of my comfort zone, is it?! 😉

Chez Bon Hostel is the name of the hostel, located in the street who used to be called Bragaweg in the Dutch Colonial era. I think it is the only hostel with such an excellent location in the heart of Bandung.

Review: Etude House Any Cushion All Day Perfect / Lucky Puppy Case Collection

Reading Time: 5 minutes

Hello, the beautravelers! 😀

It’s been awhile since the last time I actually wrote a post related to beauty section on my blog, but anyway… I owe a post on this Etude House Any Cushion All Day Perfect to April Magazine. It’s about time since it’s April and the magazine is probably named after this month!

So, in case you’re not familiar with April Magazine, it is an online magazine of East & South East Asian women like me. And their mission is very clear: to promote role models, to share ideas, and to raise the voices of Asian women in the English media scene.

And in case you think that it is exclusively for Asian women, then you’re wrong…

Because even if you’re not an Asian woman, they believe that listening to our stories will help us to grow further. So, check out April Magazine if you want to find out more about the stories of Asian women in general! Please help us to remove the stigma or anything that is way too stereotypical for Asian women. 🙂

Okay, so it’s long overdue but I won their giveaway in February, my birthday month. And just like some of you probably could guess, the giveaway is this Etude House Any Cushion!
