Instagram Break, Do We Need It?

Hi Chic Readers,
How is life going? 

Past 2 months, i shared to you that i took some days to take a rest from Instagram i call it "Instagram Fasting". i just make up that phrase because i feel like it suits with the moment you don't open your Instagram, don't scroll it down and up.  my productivity in this year is so slow, i spent most of my time scrolling Instagram and watching food video. i know it such a pleasure right to watch people eating without being worried to gain weight. 

I will share some tips about how this Instagram fasting works, some of us maybe think that why do i need to do that, i know its just an option because for me i feel a bit addicted to open this thing, i even response DM faster than whatsapp. so i put schedule every month to do this Instagram fasting it would takes 3-7 days but usually i just manage to do it within 3 day.

you have to deactivate your Instagram.

Yup! you read it right! it is a bit frustrating for me because i tend to scrolling IG like every time i get chance to touch my phone. but anyway it really helps me to improve my sleeping schedule being more content and i have more time to spend on books or listening to useful podcast. another option is you can simply just uninstall your Instagram for a day. trust me you will be more productive if you try to manage your time and being more socialize rather than just scrolling. 

i don't advice this if you're an influencer since you need to engage and update content everyday but i guess some of them also need this break from social media. i know social media is not just Instagram, there are a lots and many types but based on data by statistica in 2018 the third most used social media is Instagram it comes after Facebook and Snapchat. 

Lets we try to practice this together and let me know how it works. 

In addition, i share to you my ootd with knitted sweater paired it with light white pants. this style is considered as #styleonbudget because all outfits doesn't cost more than RM 100. 

what i am wearing:
Sweater and pants by Simple Bean 
Bags by Charles and Keith 
Flats by Forever21 (old one) but if you are looking for gorgeous flats 
 Mel&Molly is one of my favorite check it here
Thank you for reading this, i hope i shared something useful for you.

  1. Ok, and right now I am trying to take a rest from instagram too. I deleted instagram on my phone. I just open on my computer if I miss seeing some influencer photos. But, I think it works lil bit. I can spend rest of time to do something else useful.

    By the way, ootd nya keren!

    1. Hi, nice to know that this noob tips could give you some refresh idea.

      Thank you so much Farih

Kuala Lumpur: Festival, Street Photography and OOTD

2016 adalah tahun dimana perubahan besar terjadi di hidup saya. Merantau ke negeri jiran demi menuntut ilmu dibidang kesehatan keluarga dan penyakit kronis. Saya mendapat tawaran untuk melanjutkan studi ke Malaysia dari orang tua saya agar bisa lebih mandiri setelah sebelumnya juga merantau ke Jakarta untuk melanjutkan studi S1 saya. Saya masih ingat bagaimana susahnya beradaptasi dengan sistem pendidikan yang berbeda, cara belajar yang berbeda dan bahasa yang berbeda. Betul adanya jika di Malaysia menggunakan Bahasa Melayu yang notabenenya mirip dengan Bahasa Indonesia tetapi untuk perkuliahan disini menggunakan Bahasa Inggris baik di kelas maupun di area universitas. Awal daftar kuliah di Malaysia saya tidak menyangka akan diterima di salah satu universitas negeri terkemuka di Malaysia dan punya nama yang cukup baik di ASEAN. Pada masa proses pembelajaran saya memerlukan Google Translate setiap hari untuk membantu saya menemukan kosa kata ilmiah ketika diskusi karena kosa kata untuk…

Effortless Style With Paper Bag Waist Pants

Hi Chic Readers! so last week i went to IKEA Malaysia for eating that famous cone  ice cream and i just discovered that they changed the taste into soy milk so that it’s vegan friendly and dairy free. well i like soy milk and now i’m changing my eating preferences to plant based thingy and it’s such a great news. meanwhile, Huseyn kept complaining about that ice cream and said it’s just too healthy for him (need to convince him harder about health food). 
Anyway, how often do you buy your clothes? are you a person who easily triggered by sale? i was like that but now i change my perception towards clothes investment. i don’t buy clothes that much even it’s written as “big deals” because now i focus on buying clothes which has versatile look. i would suggest you to invest on this loose paper bag pants. it’s good for casual and formal look. i have three colour for this paper bag pants, they’re: black, cream and white. usually brands such as H&M, Something Borrowed you …

Hi Chic Readers!

Welcome November! Have you planned your end year vacation yet? If haven't you should do it now because it might be quite expensive if you order flight ticket in December but make sure you do it after reading this post xoxo. Me probably will not go anywhere due to my budget and i need to save more since i have to move for a new apartment. But no worries living in the centre of Kuala Lumpur would make me feel like I'm on holiday everyday because i love city view.
Alright, based on calendar now we are in rainy season. It starts since mid October until the end of March. This prediction only applicable in south east Asia region. When it comes to cooler season, this is the right time for us as jacket lovers to pull off our jacket collection for our daily style and outfit.
