Aquolina Pink Sugar Review :)

Being a girl, having only one perfume I think it is not enough, right? I'm not that kind of girl that has a signature smell, because I like trying new perfume and collecting them. I know, I know it's bad because people wouldn't notice your smell everytime you're around them, but I don't mind. I've been loving musky scent or light men scent (I don't know how to describe men's perfume scent). But this time, I don't buy anything musky, I bought Aquiline Pink Sugar. YASS!!! You can tell by its name, it has sugar in it which is like sweet scent. I went to perfume counter with my sister, because she's looking for her 1D's perfume. Then, I saw this, I picked it up and show my sister that people on YouTube raved about it so much, and every single video I've watched, they always-always have it on their collection. So, I sprayed it on a piece of paper, I didn't like it at all, but my sister loved it. She pushed me to buy it, and told me to share with her. You know, I couldn't do anything if it's my sister who begged me to. I forgot how much it costed, but it's not like really expensive. 

The packaging itself is really cute, it's light pink and you could see the liquid there, and it's really heavy. This perfume is an eau de toilette which does not last long on the skin. But, this lasts longer than I thought it would be, I had it in the morning and I still could smell it in the evening. It smells like candy, very sweet and romantic, it's like creamy vanilla candy, the vanilla gives you warm smell, which I like so much about it. I had it once to my university and some of my guy friends told me that they liked it on me, so I guess it's a really good compliment and a proof from guys. The website said it included notes: Bergamot, Sicilian Orange, Raspberry, Fig Leaves, Lily of the Valley, Licorice, Strawberry, Red Fruit, Cotton Candy, Vanilla, Caramel, Musk, Wood, Powder. I don't really use this that much because like I said I love musky or men's scent more, but when I'm on the mood of being sweet and romantic, I always pick it up from my drawer. If you are a total sweet-loving-romantic scent kind of girl, you will love this one.

Common Grounds Jakarta

Coffee is probably one of my weaknesses, my life is always missing something if I don't drink a cup of coffee. Yes, I exaggerate it but it's true and sometimes I consider myself as a coffee-maniac not only just a lover. When I have time to relax, I always go to Starbucks Coffee near me. It helps decreasing my stress level, but this time I didn't go to starbucks or coffee bean. I went to Common Grounds in Citywalk, Sudirman. Okay, I've heard some people I follow on instagram raved so much about this place so I checked it out at first and after seeing all the pictures I decided to go with my sister (she said she will accompany me to national library as long as she got treated by me). I didn't take the pics of its place. Well, the place is pretty cozy for chatting or reading alone. I really like how they put everything so simple yet comfortable. My sister and I ordered the same menu which is butter waffles with banana and caramel as topping. I also ordered cappuccino and my sister ordered espresso. When the food arrived, I was pretty amazed how the waffles was served so beautifully and looked delicious. And yes people, it's delicious, the caramel was not too sweet which I like the most,,, and bananas with strawberries!!! Man, you should try that!  Oh uh the cappuccino is the best y'all. i freaking lurvvvv it (haha this is pretty much showing how much I love it). Well, I didn't taste my sis' drink but she liked it. What I like the most, one of the baristas came to us and asked us about the coffees they served, I mean they really care about the consumers.

Okay, enough complimenting this coffee roaster, all I want to say is that I want to come back and order more of their coffee choices and also their brunches.
