New Galaxy Beans

"Diana, do you always go for branded items?"...absolutely not! I'm very open to any kind, branded and non-branded, local and international, new and old. As long as I like it, I'll definitely go for it. In fact, I very much enjoy shopping at flea markets like Pasar Senen and Gedebage. Fashion is fun! :)

Cheer Up Soe

In life, there will always be someone who will try to kill your dream. If your dream eventually gets killed, it's nobody's fault but yours. It's your dream. Protect it.

Btw, I've just updated my Up shop with a new program called the "LEVEL UP Scholarship Program"...yay! From now onwards, for every Up shoes sold, Rp.5.000 goes to a scholarship for a low-income child. We now have one scholarship student already, a 12-year-old girl who just started her junior high school (read here). If you know any child who also needs support and has great determination in his or her studies as well, it would be so great if you could also share the information with me so Up can help...:)

Thank you so much before, everyone! :)

S: "Can I drive you home tonight?"

S: "Pleeeaaase? I don't want you to drive by yourself."
Me: "Okay then...thanks, babe. Btw, I got you this DVD."
S: "Ooohhhhhh wowwwwwww. Babe, can you go home by yourself?"
Me: "So you can watch the DVD tonight?"
S: "Yeahh.."

C'est toujours un privilège, mais aussi un réel plaisir de découvrir la nouvelle
collection de Haute Joaillerie de Boucheron, dans les salons feutrés de la Place
Vendôme. Même si le prix de ces pièces exceptionnelles les met hors de portée du
commun des mortels, le rêve nous est toujours permis et la collection "Dolce Riviera"
nous emmène en voyage.
Ce rêve pour moi, c'est Sophia Loren à Portofino dans un film des années 60.
les facettes des pierres précieuses qui étincellent au soleil. L'acajou vernis et les
chromes des canots Riva sur la mer turquoise. Je rajouterais bien une belle
assiette de spaghetti "alle vongole" avec un verre de vin en terrasse, comme un
petit bijou supplémentaire ... vivement des vacances en Italie !

Polly Pocket

Was chatting with S, reminiscing about our times in Nottingham University...it truly was one of the best times I've ever had...:') Life was very peaceful and simple, and it was perhaps the only time in my life where I really enjoyed spending time in the library reading lots and lots of books. Studying was just such an enjoyment...:)

Anyway, currently super loving my Polly shoes in floral & pink...this is by far my favorite Up pair! :)

I Come In Peace

Photobucket
My bed, my sanctuary

I loooove being an entrepreneur, because it allows me to create something from nothing. Business is a fun way to create and build something new, and within the process, we learn so much. I'm sad to see how many entrepreneurs nowadays decide to be one just for the sake of making money. I really think passion should have a greater portion. No matter how small my Up brand is still, I am proud because I am growing it wholeheartedly.

Let's value originality, people. Originality in every aspect. Being inspired is one thing, being original is another. While we learn from other people and we are inspired by them, we should always remind ourselves to not steal, moreover lie. When we're entrepreneurs, it's so easy to steal from each other. But that really is not the whole point. It's about creating something from nothing, remember?

I won't be straightforward here nor will I be blunt. Just have respect and let's not steal other people's creation be it a design, a copy, a brand philosophy, an idea or any other form of intellectual property. Always give credits to those you were inspired by. Real success will only follow the sincere & kindhearted ones.
