Still in the spirit of Indonesia's Independence Day, this photo invites us to cherish the moments of learning in school when we were a little student.
When I stepped into this school for the shooting, I was immediately gazing at every corner of the building and reminiscing the adventurous times with my little friends back in elementary grade.
I am grateful for the educations that my parents provided me and I am grateful for the teachers who taught us patiently whilst sharing their valuable knowledge to us, the students. The two "professions" that should be highly regarded for a lifetime.
I think happiness is what makes you pretty. Period. Happy people are beautiful. They become like a mirror and they reflect that happiness. ~ Drew Barrymore⠀
Day 17 of #augustbreak2019 & #augusteyecandy prompts don’t have anything to do with selfies but it’s what I’ve got. ⠀
I asked my #sweethusband to take a picture of me at the wedding we attended this evening and he snapped a whole series of images that I didn’t think were particularly flattering. When I said something to that effect he said that every picture of me was beautiful because I’m beautiful. ⠀
I don’t know that I’d go that far but I do know that I don’t worry too much about how I look. I am secure in my looks and my appeal. And I happen to be married to a man who is crazy about me, which helps with all of that. I highly recommend a partner who loves you some you regardless - when you are at your supermodel best, when you are sick as a dog, when you are unwashed and unkempt...every last version of you. Because sometimes we need someone to love us until we can love ourselves. Sometimes we need someone to believe in us until we can believe in ourselves. ⠀

I take time to honor and love myself with the deep rest my body needs.
I trust that I am safe.
I trust that all is coming to me with ease and grace in divine timing.
I live in a state of joy and pleasure and all I do reflects that
I gifted myself a boudoir shoot. I’ve always felt compelled to be in a raw space in pure essence, but felt prettified of it at the same time 😨
After talking to @shastindiaz I knew she was the photographer I could trust and just beeeeeeee 🙈
So here’s a little peek of me, doing one of the things that bring me back home 🏡
I’ve been journaling since I was 8.
If I knew you, I wrote about you. It was my way of making sense of myself and the world around me.
Thank you thank you THANK YOU @shastindiazphoto for holding space for me in complete transparency, vulnerability as I move through self discovery. Embracing my femininity + sensual expressions of myself..... on my own terms 🙏🏼💕✌🏼

Stepping into your fears and risking comfort for greatness is easier said than done but this is it. One life to get it right.
The irony that grey clouds bring me a sense of calm and comfort. This is quite literally my "happy" weather, I love it 😅 Apologies for being a little behind on our regular weekend self care highlights and thanks so much for all the love over the last week or so. I got a solid 9 hours sleep last night 👌Here's hoping tonight is another restful one. So much love to everyone, I hope the weekend has been kind to you 💙

Natural Collagen Boosting Serum .
This formula contains Lupine and Date extracts for boosting collagen, skin firmness and reducing appearance of wrinkles. .
*Neossance Hemisqualane -Squalane has traditionally been one of the best emollients on the market. Occurring naturally in the skin's lipid layers, it prevents transepidermal water loss (TEWL) while restoring the skin's suppleness and flexibility. Squalane is non-comedogenic and offers a silky, smooth and elegant texture, with no greasy, heavy after-feel, making it ideal for facial products, as well as body lotions and creams, or for use as a carrier oil.
*D'Orientine S is a plant-derived cosmetic active ingredient extracted from the date-palm kernel (Phoenix Dactylyfera) with clinically proven anti-wrinkle efficacy and free radical scavenging properties. Its unique complex of 7 natural compounds work synergistically to delay the visible signs of aging.
*Collageneer is an anti-aging and firming ingredient that stimulates the synthesis of a high-quality collagen to increase elasticity and firmness in the skin, helping to remodel the facial contour. Collageneer is made from lupeol, which is extracted from the coatings of sweet white lupin seeds. Once extracted, the lupeol is solubilized in oleic sunflower oil and then semi-refined and stabilized by adding natural ±-tocopherol. Sourced from lupine plants cultivated using sustainable agricultural practices in France.

What makes our Collagen Boosting Serum so special? One of the main active ingredients is Date Kernel Extract. .
Phoenix dactylifera, or date kernel extract, is scientifically proven to have a significant impact on the visible signs of skin aging. In cosmetics, this is a patented active ingredient known as D'Orientine S.
Date palm is rich in phytohormones, which are proven to have wrinkle fighting properties. In a study published in the International Journal of Tissue Reactions, date palm reduced the surface area of wrinkles by 27.6% and reduced wrinkle depth of study participants by 3.52%.
One recently published study on date palm and skin aging was even more promising, as it revealed that topical application resulted in improved skin elasticity, an increase in skin brightness, greater skin hydration, and a decrease in redness and hyperpigmentation. This means that it can target nearly every skin concern associated with aging.
This ingredient has been widely studied for years, including a study back in 2010 which showed that not only does date palm help slow the signs of aging, but that it also may improve the symptoms of rosacea.
There are seven natural compounds present in date palm working in synergy to improve overall skin appearance. This antioxidant powerhouse helps to improve barrier function, reduce the look of lines and wrinkles, and has skin regenerating properties.
