Colors Fading & Frayed At The Sides

Music has always been something that is very important for me. I can never live my life without music. Most of people said the exact same sentence as I just said, but seriously I really mean it. Forgiting my iPod or even worst earphone equals to bad day! Imagining facing the crowd and spending 45 minutes in the metro to campus without my music is basically torturing me.
The point is I LOVE MUSIC, not only listening to it, but also watching music performance a.k.a CONCERTS!
I mean who doesn't? The experience is just priceless. It is not only listening to the music, you get to see the artist doing what they really passionate about, the energy, the emotion that they share, It. Is. An. Amazing. Experience.! Especially if you lucky enough to see the band member (spoiler alert).  In the beginning of 2014, if I'm not mistaken in February, my friends and I wanted to watch so many shows. Arctic Monkeys, Vampire Weekend, Bombay Bicycle Club, etc but we missed it all due to hardcore cla…

Il fait beau! Thank God I went out from the house today. Paris is finally getting colder, even though its still appropriate and possible to wear skirt without socks like I did.

Summer in Fall

Image
Don't forget to follow my instagram : patriciarossaa I got no idea what's happening with the weather now. Its already fall but it doesn't feel cold. I feel like its summer. This is so not cool. Now I began to wonder will I ever see snow pouring from the sky in my stay in Paris. Anyway my blazer and skirt is from Indonesian Local brand, which I am so proud of since it got so many compliments. Yeay Indo Brands!

Health

I have been very determined lately to be the healthiest person I can be. Because 1.) I gained too much within a year 2.) I been eating so much of bad stuff like kebab and greasy stuff which I didn't consume before I came here 3.) I just wanna be healthy lol.
So I been shifting myself from waking up at 11 am in my free days, to waking up at 8 am everyday or earlier, followed by 45 minutes or running if I don't have morning classes and juiced some fruits as my breakfast like I always do since I was tiny. Drink a loooott of water during the day, eat nutritious food, and try to sleep maximum of 11 pm. And I feel sooo much better because of this habit. Not only I feel like I lose some weight, I also feel fresher and fit.
Lately we have been exposed by the issue of self acceptance. To be happy with who you are, what you have, what size to are, how tall you are and everything. Being skinny like Barbie is not what we want anymore. The guys are interested in any sizes, not only the 0 …

Voyage

Ola! I just got back from my 1 week vacation to explore The Netherlands, (plus Antwerp). I've been to The Netherlands before but only visited 2 cities, and in this trip I explored and visited more cities. I took most of the pictures using my Iphone since my camera is very heavy lol. Plus I only made one outfit picture.  I'll share my experience and the photos in the next post.

Little Italy

Image
To live in Paris, it is a very unique experience. Everything is just so...... colorless. The way people are dressed, the buildings, well basically everything, until I found this little street which made me so surprised as it is located inside Paris. Surreal, surreal. Definitely I wouldn't be surprised if I found this in Italy or I don't know maybe Greece. Oh well. Anyway, this location is not called Little Italy.
Anyway, I know I don't really promote myself much but I just wanna tell you guys that I'm in Instagram (Duh) as patriciarossaa. Feel free to click the follow button eventhough I protected my account :) Have a relaxing weekend



Escape

You have no idea how great it is to finally see green fields with real mountains and trees after being apart of this crazy big city. I finally found refreshment. I went to a real picnic with my colleagues in just 1 hour drive from Paris. We had huge amount of crazy delicious foods, bbq and do some fun activities. It was a very nice day (although now I can feel that i'm already getting darker) but it could've been better if the rain didn't keep ruining our perfect day.
