Here's a DIY article I did for Bunda Carrefour's blog. It's an easy-peasy project that your kid would like to help you with, and love to use in the end. All you need is a used potato chip tube package and fun paper. The photos tell them all. Let's recycle and get creative!

Okay, I might be a bit behind this trend, but doesn't trends always repeat itself? So, I needed something to freshen up my look, especially after having my second child. Looking like a dead-momma is not appealing at all. And what works better than red lipstick? It's almost like magic. Who needs eyeshadow and blush anymore? I'm talking about those dates when you just have 5 minutes to get ready and go, with your baby in one hand and toddler in your other. It has been my savior for the last month and I'm loving it to bits. After a few try-outs with the red lipstick I have stacked but have only used to attend weddings, I finally found the one that I like the best - Bless lipstick in Cherry Red. Now, I wear it everywhere - on play dates, outings, even to pick up my son at school :) Bravo red lipstick! Now I get how you brighten up someones life :) Oh, and doesn't Olivia Palermo look gorgeous?

Anyway, we spent the last days of 2012 at Sentul, West Java - a lush green area just before Bogor that wasn't just a refreshment to the eyes but also the soul. We stayed at a resort on new years eve and spent the first day of the new year entertaining my first child - riding horses included. Here's some of the pictures if you'd like to see. I hope you too spent new years with your loved ones.

Our newest member of the family. We welcomed a healthy baby girl last November and named her Mikaela. She weighed 2,7 kilos and measured 48cm at birth. She is everything we imagined. Now at 1 month, she's already cooing and starting to smile in response to us. It's a whole new experience again, like I almost forgot how it is having a baby. I and husband and Fabian are thrilled to have her and can't get enough of her. Grow happy, healthy, and wise, Mikaela. We love you!
Big brother loves little sister :)

Lush gardens in between areas of display at the museum
The View from Beukenhof Resto
Classic colonial interior at the Beukenhof Resto
This was my second time to visit the museum and was surprised by how the area has expanded since the last time. I personally think this is a great place to visit with family. Even my toddler enjoyed it! The ticket entrance for adults is IDR25.000 and free for children under 5 years. Seriously, highly recommended. Above are a few pictures of only areas we were allowed to capture at the museum.

Meanwhile, I want to shout out a Happy Mothers Day, as it is here in Indonesia, to all you awesome moms out there. I myself couldn't be happier to be the mother of these two darlings of mine.
