My Hair is My Baby

Hello ladies, sisters, mothers, or brothers? (haha). Do you watch American Idol? Do you remember what did Colton Dixon said about his unique hair? Here is his word, "My hair is my baby". Yes, I feel you, Colton! :) Since I was a little girl, I always wanted to have very long, black, straight, all natural hair. I'm 23 and proud to say that I LOVE MY HAIR very much! 

Let me tell you the history of my hair (easy, this is short one. :p). I never straighten or curly my hair permanently. From I was a little girl, I never do anything to my hair. If I go to the hair salon, I usually just cut my hair, blow dry, or creambath. I never do anything beside those things. I'm not a 'salon person' if you know what I mean.

The length of my hair is almost reach my hips. And usually long hair's problem is split ends, but I don't have any! Let me say, my hair almost never has any problems. The only problem that I had was when I used wrong hair products. I used to try one of shampoo, and my scalp became very itchy and created dandruff. I was really stress out. But now, I have finally found my hair's BFF! Or technically, the products that I've been using for at least 1 and a half years. And also, my hair technology (weird) that I've been using to style or just play around, hehehe.

Hair products that I've been using.

1. L'oreal Smooth-Intense Ultra Rich Nourishing Shampoo (left at the back)
I've been using this shampoo around 1 and a half years, and since I've used this shampoo, I'm no longer having hair problem. It makes my hair smoother, and anti-frizz. Like seriously, no joke. This shampoo contains Argan Oil + Silk Protein for very frizzy, coarse, and untamable hair. I loooovee this product very much, it makes my hair really easy to comb, and style. I think I will use this like, forever.

2. L'oreal Smooth-Intense Caring Conditioner (right at the back)
Washing hair is not complete without conditioner. So, I always use conditioner every time I wash my hair. This conditioner is the same type with my shampoo, which is "smooth intense". This conditioner contains Nutrileum + Silk Protein which can make my hair smoother than ever! I always use conditioner at the end of my hair, because the frizz part of my hair is only at the end.

3. L'oreal Smooth-Intense 1 Minute Caring Mask (left at the front)
I'm kinda person who like 1 type or brand of a product, so I also use the same brand for my hair mask. I mean, it's useless rite if we don't use all the product range? So, I tried this hair mask, and I LOVE IT. This is the best of all. My hair becomes very smooth as silk, trust me. This is actually 1 minute mask, but I usually put this mask and use shower cap to cover it for about 15 minutes. And when I rinse my hair, it becomes really great! I use this hair mask once a week, like I told you before, I rarely come to the hair salon. This product right here, you have to give a shot.

4. Ellips Hair Vitamin Shiny Black (right at the front)
Last but not least, hair vitamin. I use this vitamin for about a half year. And I already feel the result. This vitamin contains candle nut, aloe vera oil, UV protectant, vitamin A & E, and pro vitamin B5. A lot huh? Yes, and they all work! This product is very affordable and you can find in any drugstore. I always use this product after my hair a half dry, and I wipe it at the end of my hair, so it creates more shine.

These are my hair technology(s).

1. BaByliss ipro230iCurl 
This hair styling product is smart! It has 2 functions in 1 product. So, this thing can make my hair straight, or curly. Amazing isn't it??? I've been using this product less than half year, and I love it. Because it's really practical, and easy to use. The iron has total protection for your hair and makes smooth and intense shine. And the most important, it has level of heat, and on/off button. So that we can set the level of the heat. It was a little bit pricey but, it was all worth it!

2. Panasonic Hair Dryer EH-NE11-v
Actually, I got this for free recently. Somehow my dad gave this to me (kinda strange). This is hair dryer (obviously!). But let me tell you it works really fast! Because this product has quick dry nozzle and ion. I don't really understand but seriously no joke, this thing dries my hair very quickly (I use middle level heat). And another thing that I love about this product is its size. The size is quiet small and easy to use. 

So, I already share my hair products and hair styling products. Could you please share yours? I want to know! If you love to, you can comment, or follow me @notjustbeauty on Twitter.

Nail Color(s) of the Month!

I just purchased 2 nail polishes a couple days ago. And I'm really happy to share with you ladies! For this month color I choose bloody-red color and peach color from Revlon. Actually this is the first time I bought nail polish from Revlon, and I love it very much. It's affordable, and makes your nails really pretty!

Nail Polish: Revlon

Left: code 680 for Revlon Red
Right: code 914 for Tropical Temptation

I know red nail color is not in the trend right now, but I don't know why I love that color. It looks very classy, brave, and sophisticated at the same time. But in my opinion, this bloody-red color should be applied in medium-length nail. So, it creates more mature looks. I don't think that it's a good color for short-length nail. I applied to my nails, what do you think? (ps: I'm not good at nail polishing! hihi)

These are my bloody-red nails!

And the peach one, or the tropical temptation color from Revlon is kind of feminine, girly, and kinda soft nail color. I think it's one of the nail color that on trend right now. Feminine outfit, or color-blocking style suits for this nail color! I really like it. And I'm gonna use this color for a week! :-)

I love this color! Do you love it?

Actually I'm a new comer in nail coloring, because I do sport that makes me can't grow my nails. But if I really can't color my nail hand, I prefer to color my nail finger-toes. But, remember, erase your nail color maximum after 2 weeks of using nail polish. Because sometimes, we have to let our nails 'breath'. 

Well, sharing is caring! Don't forget to follow my Twitter on @notjustbeauty

(My blog page still needs more adjustment. I still learn how to adjust my blog page, hehe)

Delicious Red Velvet

I know colored pants are on trend for spring 2012 right now (although there is no spring in Indonesia). So, I choose dark-kinda-red or red-velvet-look-a-like skinny long jeans. It's a very classy yet fun color, you can mix it with many styles! And for my first look on my blog, I pair my red-velvet long jeans with white creme blouse, golden-bronze colored accessories, black heels, and black snack skin sling bag. And trust me, all items are very affordable, and adorable! *big smile*

White Creme Blouse: Yuan
Red Velvet Jeans: Gaudi

Black Snake Skin Sling Bag: Charles & Keith
Black High Heels: Charles & Keith
(Yes I'm kinda a big fan of the brand)

Animal Skin Statement Necklace: random accessories store at Mangga Dua
Snake Bronze Ring: Naughty
Bracelets: Shilin Night Market

So actually today I have Red Velvet Cake dessert from Oh La La Cafe, Plaza Indonesia, based on my friend Daniel Kaurranny 's recommendation. So, what do you think? (ps: the right bottom one is a chocolate cake, also yummy!)

First Post!

Hello everybody! This is my first post on my blog. Actually, I'm not going to post any information, I just wanna introduce myself and tell you about things that I will post in the future. So, are you ready? *excited*

So, my name is Fella Felecia. I'm 23 years old this June. I'm a hotel graduate. And for the past 1 year, I have been crazy in love with things that related to FASHION and BEAUTY! Yes, that's true. Even though I still a sport lover especially basketball (yo, baller!), quietly I love this fashion and beauty industry also! Not as a professional job, but just to have fun, explore, and try new things! And the fun part is.. I love to share with all you guys.

But, don't worry, I will not only post about those 2 kinds of things, actually I will post a bit about my other favorite things. Find out later in my future post. Sharing is caring! :-)

One thing you have to remember, I ain't a professional blog-writer, or stylist, or make-up person. So, what will you read in my post is just based on my opinion (and may be from other people that I've heard or something) and my situation (what?). I just hope you can enjoy my blog, and you can get some information that important (or not, lol) for you, especially the female readers. You may also follow me on twitter @notjustbeauty

Last but not least, a good looking person comes from the inside, not just from the outside. Peace.
