Can People Really Change? #2015toughestquestion

Hi and this time this hi is from me Cindy Karmoko not the Hippiegonemad girl. I can't believe i left my blog for more than a month.... I finally have my clarity moment or should i say moments?
How are you virtual darlings? How's 2015 so far? First of all may God bless Indonesia... Friends and family of the Airasia victims, stay strong... I'm sending my prayers also to the friends and family of Charlie Hebdo incident's victims  and also let's pray for the attackers, may all  of them find their own peace . To Paris the city of love, may we spread more loves not only to the Parisians but to all of the people in the world. May all of the religions, races and genders unite because we're all human after all. Every single soul counts and don't let this attack change our perception of any religion. Just be kind and spread more loves than ever.
Let's catch up, shall we? I went to USA for Christmas and new year with my dearest family + i went to Chictopia HQ and we made a video of the 2015 fashion trends btw! It was the best thing that ever happened to me i guess. Chictopia was my first fashion platform before i knew this amazing site called blogspot. It was a humbling and unforgettable experience. It's funny how good news and new projects always come everytime i had this crazy thoughts to shutdown my blog. I feel like i disappoint myself everytime someone tell me about my lack of posts, a lot of unanswered questions and requests for tips from education to beauty. I felt like i was failing and i was in a limbo.  I feel like i really need to focus on one thing  which is my education but i also have my long distance relationship that i need to maintain(uh huh, i can make a whole new post about this LDR life but let's not talk about it now).
 A lot of things happened in 2014 but no matter how much i want to be my better self... I always feel i was never good enough. Jealousy got the best out of me, yeah i know i need to be grateful blablabla yada yada yada.... I should be happy with all of the good things that happened in my life right? maybe? I don't know.... Yesterday i got the news about my first internship interview, i got the job alongside my super amazing friend and i think she doesn't know how amazing she is. I always see the brighter side of a person, but why can't i see the brighter side of me? Why can't i be satisfied? Why do i keep wishing to be other bloggers, friends or family member and I'm tired to become... myself. I often over think everything, i feel tired all the time and i miss my home :( Have you ever feel like everyone hates you in secret and you don't know why? Maybe i'm just lonely or maybe i'm just hungry or depressed?
 I used to think my purpose in life was to achieve my personal lifetime goals, to make people smile,to have a lot of shoes and to be a carefree peace maker. A hippie gone mad! but i think people change... I changed, like a lot.... I kept distance with my friends and family (+ my boyfriend) in these past few months , today i thought that was the stupidest thing i could ever do. Today i set a new goal for myself because i know i need to change for the better. I always want to make everybody happy and smile, i will not let my insecurities get the best out of me anymore. At the end of the day, if you want to spread the love... you should love yourself first, appreciate your existence here in this world. Be kind to yourself, stop competing with others and stop searching for your flaws. I keep this mantra not only for you guys but most of all for myself. I always treat my blog as my virtual diary and i think these words will always be here when  i need them... when you need them.
I know people could change, with all of our new life experience... We simply grow up! We're evolving into this new human beings, we learned from our mistakes and karma teach us good, it taught me hella good i guess.  For all of you who feel like you will never be good enough just because Taylor Swift always show you how amazing she was and how perfect she was, is and will... You're not alone, I'm here guys. Let's just really look inside ourselves and say this is enough! Because we're all good enough and everyday we'll have another set of 24 hours to be the best version of ourselves. We won't stop growing, we won't stop changing. Let's learn from the iphones... same casing, maybe a little bit bigger but small changes and upgrades won't hurt right? Have a blessed morning, afternoon and night. Hello 2015...

Black Cape






Hello from this girl who wear the black cape almost everyday because winter is already here in Milan. So sorry for a little hiatus my super busy school schedule and my bedroom "renovation" are the things to blame i guess. btw hello winter! Milan is full with christmas markets and sweets.. not to forget the warm wine of course.

Got this cape from my sponsor Shopdeca i got a few items from them but if you see me in Milan, you'll see me wearing this cape almost everyday now. So comfy and warm and so chic right?!

Get FIT






I never consider myself as thin but if you knew the 12 years old me than you know that i really want to be fit and healthy. My body weight fluctuate a lot and in my lifetime i lose a lot of KG in total because of my crazy yoyo diet( i lost 67 kg in total during my lifetime) i could gain 6 kg in a week, 25 kg in a month during my junior high school years. So crazy right... I hate junior high and high school because i was super sad and insecure all the time. I never felt good enough and i have the wrong goal. I want to be skinny, pretty, lovable and most of all i want to fit in. I posted about this matter couple of years ago and you can see it HERE
If you follow my blog you probably know that I rarely wear any crop top, and I prefer to show you my gym outfit in my instagram Just because the pictures are smaller and Im super shy to post a gigantic pictures of me lifting weight here in the blog. But when I saw this wang sports bra, i knew it that this will be my motivation outfit. Yes, to go to gym or to do 100 situps at home are not my favorite things to do. I love junk food and food in general, surrounded by pizza and pasta in Italy make me forget about my fitspiration album in my pinterest.
My boyfriend on the other hand became a gym freak! He goes to gym four times a week and I could see his progress and its amazing! He told me a few diet tips and i tried a few that works for me. I still eat a lot but I lose my weight a little bit each week.
These are my personal plan, Im not a doctor and I only do whats work for ME.
1.     Drink at least 1,5 L of water each day
2.     Drink 2 glass of water before and after meal
3.     To prevent you from snacking trashy goodness, buy orange and dried fruits instead.. or any kind of fruits.
4.     Eat more vegetables
5.     Dont eat rice, substitute with potato, sweet potato or quinoa
6.     Eat a lot of broccoli
7.     Dont starve yourself!
8.     Dont binge! Eat maximum 2 pieces of chocolate and let go my friend, share it with your love ones instead!
9.     Sharing is caring, instead of having a piece of cake by yourself bring 4 spoons and share it with your love ones.
10.  When youre bored eat banana! People tend to eat a lot of trashy food when theyre bored so make sure you have those sweet banana in your home/bag
11.  Drink tea(no sugar)
12.  Walk! I didnt have any car here in Milan, so I walk everywhere, I run to catch the tram and bus everyday btw.
13.  Dont hate yourselves; yes we gain a few pounds sometimes. Just smile and start over!
14.  Never weight yourself during your monthly period.
15.  I prefer roasted or boiled than deep fried
16.  Never finish your meal! Throw the last 2-3 spoons, sorry mother nature but after a few weeks you can control yourself from eating too much.
17.  Eat chicken breast
18.  Eat what ever you want on Saturday and Sunday but I always hate meatballs, sausage, burgers and pork satay + there are no KFC and fried chicken here in Milan. I eat a lot of hot pot/sushi though
19.  I eat yoghurt everyday
20.  Be happy! Never be thin/sexy for anyone else but yourselves. You deserve to be healthy and happy!
