5 Dresses to Avoid the “When’s Your Turn?” Question on the Next Wedding You’re Going to Attend

Reading Time: 7 minutes

Hello everyone!

Did you manage to watch the Royal Wedding on this gloomy Saturday? By gloomy, it wasn’t really referring to my broken heart knowing that Prince Harry is no longer available, but it is actually gloomy in this part of the world. Although to be fair, I’m not complaining as the weather is quite nice to stay in and take a nap like there’s no tomorrow. 😛

Did any of you get invited to the Royal Wedding? If so, you need to hit me up because I heard even the now-Duke and Duchess of Sussex got introduced through a mutual friend. If you got invited to the wedding, it only means that you probably know some other royal family members and who knows? Maybe the bride for the next Royal Wedding would be me?! *lol*

Anyway, speaking of the wedding, if you’re like me and in the age of everyone around you getting married if not getting pregnant, then rest assured you’re probably familiar with this very question: “When’s your turn?”

Well, I suppose if you’ve got a partner already, you’ll get on that question together, you know… Get awkward together.

But, if you’re single like me, it’s not rare to get such response in a way they feel sorry for you or some other kind of negativity just because you’ve got no man beside you. You think I’m exaggerating? Try living in an Asian country for once, being almost 30 and unmarried.

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?
