I could've put together 5 things I learned from 2020 so it'd sound like a catchier clickbait, but to be perfectly honest I did not. In the spirit of genuine sharing, and in the hope of blessing one or two souls reading this, I decided to write about the only two life lessons I learned this year. Not much in quantity, but in terms of how much they changed me, man oh man... they deserve a single dedicated post on the blog. They don't even need a pretty picture to make future me read the entire thing all over again.

So here goes the first post on that is all texts and no picture! 


1. The importance of relationships, both vertical and horizontal.

Vertical: My relationship with God has been hot and cold all my life. But that never bothered me so much because frankly it’s easy for me to go about daily activities feeling great. How could I not? I have a family, a secure job that I love doing, a comfortable house, few close friends of my own selection, an on-track saving and investment portfolios, a smartphone and all the technology that puts the world in my hands. All those blessings, despite the hot-and-cold relationship with God.

The old me would’ve probably done some thinking and realized that hey if I’m not careful, God could take it all away from me. And then I’d be miserable. Do I want to be miserable? No. So I should get myself to read the Bible more, do what the Scripture says, and be a good gal.

Guess what, old Wynne, God could take it all away even if I do all the Bible tells you. If I disregard the Bible completely, God could let you keep everything me love in the world and more. 

See, we don’t follow Jesus because we’re afraid that if we didn’t our lives would fall apart, we’d be poor, relationships broken, jobs lost, etc. We can do things and achieve things in this world on our own strength. But none of them will have eternal value without Jesus. We can’t do anything of eternal value without Jesus. That’s why I need Him. 

Horizontal: Horizontal relationship is less essential than vertical, but a healthy vertical relationship naturally results in flourishing horizontal relationships. God desires for us to be in a community. In fact, being in a community is one of the most common ways we can know more of God. Therefore, in my spiritual journey of drawing closer to Him, it made complete sense that my longing for Him plants seeds for new friendships and encourages me to fertilize existing ones.

Hey I’m still a big fat introvert! So when I said I’m building relationships, do not imagine me shedding away my introvert side and putting on a new, extroverted skin. I did it with the relatively very few “close” friends that I have (I’m literally talking about 2-3 people), but I was fully intentional about it. 

2. Marriage is hard (even more so when there's a baby in the picture).

This year has been the hardest for my husband and me. I met my husband at work, and we continued to work at the same place until recently (I got another job). So we are used to spending all day all night with each other. Some couples find that sickening but I actually adored how we enjoy each other’s company in every little time of every day. So it was to my surprise that the lockdown put strain on our marriage like never before. Turned out we were not invincible. Heck, we were seriously considering going our separate ways.

I realized our marriage was and still is being put to a test. A realistic test of “for better or worse”. Those things you hear old couples say: “marriage isn’t about love, it is about commitment” is ONE HUNDRED PERCENT TRUE. To get married might have been about love but to stay married (and in love) is all about committing to one another. Committing to walk the talk we so proudly said to each other in Holy Matrimony.

I can’t speak for my husband, but this year I personally invited God more deeply in the way I play my role in this marital relationship. I could actually feel Him speaking to me and giving me strength to endure yet another trial. I know, now, that this is how I come out the other side stronger and more alike those cute old couples you see on Youtube that make you go “awwww”. 


So all in all, I’d like to close this year on a grateful note. 2020 was like the cranky teacher you hate at the beginning but then realized you learned more from him than any other teacher you’ve ever had. I do hope things get better fast in 2021 - hard not to do that - but even if it does not, I know I’m more equipped to deal with sh*t now than ever before. Thanks, 2020, for that!


Been a while since I posted an OOTD on this blog-o-verse. I’m back with a BANG! LOL.

I’m obsessed with this beautiful Batik dress! The combination of cotton and silk and fine drapery work makes it fall GORGEOUSLY on any shape. The pattern patch design is elevated by a beautiful mixture of colors, and this takes printed Batik to a whole other level. This dress is perfect for anyone looking to promote Indonesian Batik heritage in a modern way. Cantik sekali!

Aku beli dress ini di Jujur itu kali pertama aku belanja di website Alleira. Padahal aku belinya tengah malem lho, tapi senang-senang aja karena prosesnya gak ribet. Paketnya juga cepat sampai di rumahku dan kemasannya bagus dan rapi. It was a nice shopping experience. Apalagi isi paketnya dress yang secantik ini OMG my heart.

Oh iya, dari segi harga, ini gak sampai 400 ribu lho. I mean... dress sebagus ini! What a steal!

Terima kasih tim @BatikKammi dan @ClozetteID – I’m a happy gal!


Karena kita lagi di masa-masa di mana menjaga kebersihan dan kesehatan lingkungan sekitar kita itu sangat-sangat penting, aku mau share review tentang Cool Mist Humidifier merk Dr Browns. Humidifier ini aku pakai di kamar tidur aku yang posisinya di rumah tidak langsung kena matahari dan tidak ada akses langsung untuk sirkulasi udara segar. Harapannya bisa membantu bikin udara di kamar tidak terlalu dry. Plus, katanya humidifier ini juga bisa membantu menghambat perkembangan virus di udara. Penting banget buat masa-masa banyak virus begini yah.

- Kapasitas tangkinya besar (3.8L), sehingga bisa nyala sampai 30 jam
- Dua fungsi: sebagai humidifier saja, atau sekaligus essential oil diffuser
- Pemasangannya mudah, pemakaiannya juga mudah 
- Kekuatan semprotan mist nya bisa diatur dari kecil banget sampai besar banget
- Arah semprotan mist bisa diatur 360 derajat
- Desain sleek minimalis, cantik untuk ditaruh di ruangan

- Dalam membersihkan bagian dalam tangki, proses pengeringannya agak susah. Karena satu-satunya akses masuk ke tangki adalah lubang kecil di bagian bawah. Jadi caranya adalah harus diletakkan di posisi berdiri supaya airnya bisa turun dan keluar lewat lubang, sementara sisa-sisa air yang menempel di dinding itu hanya bisa dibersihkan dengan memasukkan beberapa lembar tisu atau kanebo ke dalam tangki lalu menggoyang-goyangkan tangki sampai tisu/kanebonya menyentuh semua dinding dalam tangki dan menyerap airnya.

- Dalam posisi nyala, humidifer ini mengeluarkan suara blebeb blebeb akibat proses pengubahan air menjadi mist. Bagi aku enggak masalah karena my brain can treat that as white noise. Tapi untuk orang-orang yang perlu complete silence untuk tidur, mungkin tidak nyaman kalau memasang humidifier ini di kamar saat mau tidur.
- Kabelnya tidak terlalu panjang, sekitar 70 cm saja.

Overall, menurut aku Humidifier ini bagus dan worth the price. Apalagi merk Dr Browns sudah tidak diragukan lagi kualitasnya dan ketahanannya.  

Semoga review ini berguna dan bermanfaat ya!


Do you guys realize that when we are at home, our skin encounters elements that threaten its healthiness just as much as when we are out and about? It might feel like during #dirumahaja we are exposed to much less pollution and dirt, but what about the lack of sunlight, constant exposure to air conditioning, and lack of physical movement/exercise? All these could easily lead to a tendency to less frequent proper cleansing, which in turn would result in skin dehydration.

Let me share with you a bit about some products that have quickly settled in as my nighttime skincare routine. These came in a BlueCare Package from Bioderma, which consist of their Atoderm and Hydrabio ranges, to help cleanse, hydrate, and moisturize our skin.

1. Hydrabio H20 Micellar Water: This worked surprising well in removing my make up, including my waterproof eyeliner I used before. For those of you who didn't know, micellar water is a type of water-based cleanser that can effectively remove make up and cleanse the skin without leaving it dry. Plus point for me is the very gentle yet nice refreshing scent! This one's so good I'm actually gonna buy one for my mama.

2. Hydrabio Essence Lotion: After cleansing, I use the essence lotion, which is my favorite product among them. This baby is a radiance booster to hydrate and freshen up your skin. I use this not only for PM but also AM skincare now. If you're struggling with dry skin like me, this one is a true gem. 

3. Hydrabio Serum: Next step is to apply the serum. The serum has thicker texture than the essence lotion. When you apply it to your face you can almost immediately feel it working its magic to protect your skin from the constant exposure to air conditioning for 8 consecutive hours (or less if you're a new mom like me LOL) when you sleep.

I pause here to note this: What makes the foregoing three goods so special is the AquageniumTM content, which is a patented complex in Hydrabio range with vitamin PP + Apple seed extract, which generates true, immediate and long-lasting hydration. This complex biologically relaunches the skin's natural moisturizing and water retaining abilities. Moreover, it stimulates the expression of aquaporins (real and natural channels that circulate water in your skin) and strengthens skin resistance and impermeability.

4. Atoderm Stick Levres: This is a lip balm to keep your lips moist. A few nights ago my lips were so dry, almost chapped, because I tend to drink less water when I'm at home. So I used this, and almost immediately my lips felt much better and actually looked moist and healthy. It's now becoming a regular in my daily. 

That's all for my PM skincare! Easy peasy. 

But we're not done yet! For your body, the Atoderm range also consists of these two other products:

5. Atoderm Gel Douche: This shower gel is fantastic, I must say! I super love the scent and the refreshing feel it leaves on my skin. It does not generate foam, but because I like showering with foam I usually use a loofah. Because the formula is so gentle, this can be used by kids too.

6. Atoderm Ultra-Nourishing Cream: This one is for after shower. You can use it on your face and all over your body. This is not one you'd buy for the scent, but definitely one you should try for its moisturizing abilities. Like the shower gel, this is safe for kids too.

So what is the difference between the Hydrabio range and the Atoderm range? While the Hydrabio range contains AquageniumTM, the Atoderm range contains Skin Protect TM complex, which is a cmix of Vitamin PP and combination of sugars, aimed to physically and biologically recreate a healthy skin barrier and maintain the skin's water reserves, thus making the skin healthy and comfortable. Talk about all your dry skin needs in one package!

That's all, y'all! Keep that skin healthy and glowing!

P.S.: Thank you @clozetteid and @bioderma_indonesia for helping me keep my skin healthy during these difficult times!

Another one of local beauty products yang patut dicoba: Posy Beauty lipsticks! Aku udah sering dengar tentang brand ini sebelumnya tapi belum sempat mencoba. Kalau jodoh memang gak kemana ya, tiba-tiba dapat tawaran dari Clozette Indonesia untuk coba shade barunya, Gluttony. 

Sebagai cewek yang jarang banget full make up, suprisingly shade Gluttony ini tetap bagus meskipun wajahnya hanya pakai sunblock aja. Teksturnya soft matte, ringan banget di bibir. Bikin wajah keliatan cerah yaaa.

Yang keren dari produk Posy Beauty ini adalah semuanya pigmented, dan juga mengandung vitamin E yang bikin bibir kita gak kering. Bonusnya bisa membantu menghilangkan garis-garis di bibir juga.

Nah selain Gluttony aku juga sekalian cobain shade Lust (lebih baby pink) dan Pride (merah tua). Both I love, tapi yang Pride bener-bener cakep banget sih di bibir aku. See for yourself!

Ini tadi aku ke supermarket sama Owen pakai yang Pride. Jadi aku udah buktikan kalau ini lipstik yang tahan lama dan tidak luntur. Bagus kan? Meskipun minimum make up tapi muka aku keliatan fresh banget.

Selain 3 shade ini masih ada 4 warna lipstik matte lain yang bisa kamu kepoin di Instagramnya @posybeautyid yah.

Don't worry yaa produk mereka semua udah bersertifikat BPOM. Selain itu semuanya halal, vegan dan juga cruelty free. Bangga banget dehhh lipstik matte lokal Indonesia!  

Thank you @posybeautyid dan @clozetteid ! <3 p="">


Di weekend Valentine ini aku menyempatkan diri untuk me time sekaligus treatment kulit wajah di Dermaster Indonesia cabang Pondok Indah. Treatment yang aku coba adalah Pico Derma Treatment. Kemarin aku sudah sempat sharing di IG story sebelum-saat-sesudah treatment, tapi di blog ini aku mau bahas lebih detail ya.

Pico Derma ini treatment barunya Dermaster. Manfaatnya banyak dalam waktu pengerjaan sangat cepat (5-10 menit aja). Pico Derma ini bisa mencerahkan kulit wajah (toning), mengecilkan pori-pori, dan menghilangkan flek dan bekas jerawat. Kalau toning itu efek brighteningnya langsung kelihatan begitu selesai treatment, sementara kalau flek dan bekas jerawat mungkin perlu beberapa kali treatment tergantung tingkat kesulitannya. 

Setelah konsultasi dengan dokter, aku hanya treatment toning dan pengecilan pori-pori saja. Karena puji Tuhan aku belum ada flek (meskipun diwanti-wanti harus rajin pakai sunblock kalau gak mau ada flek soon) dan bekas jerawat udah tinggal dikiiiit banget. Jadi sebelum treatment, make up kamu akan dibersihkan dulu. Setelah itu dokter akan lihat kondisi kulit wajah dan merekomendasikan treatment yang tepat. 

FAQ: Sakit gak?

Kalau di aku, karena pain tolerance aku cenderung rendah (dipijet cuma elus-elus aja sakit hahaha), aku merasa lumayan sakit tapi masih tolerable. Ketika toning itu rasanya kayak ditusuk-tusuk pakai tusuk gigi tapi pelan-pelan, gak ekstrim. Jadi sangat masih bisa ditahan. Ketika ngerjain pores, rasanya tusuk giginya kayak habis diasah jadi lebih tajam. Jujur lebih sakit, terutama di bagian pipi. Sakitnya sampai yang tadinya aku banyak ngobrol sama dokternya untuk tanya-tanya, ketika ngerjain pores di pipi itu aku udah gak bisa bawel lagi, cuma fokus breathing technique menahan sakit hahahaha. Tapi masih tolerable juga, lagipula waktunya gak lama. 

FAQ: Harganya berapa?

Harga per kedatangan adalah Rp2,500,000.

FAQ: Amankah untuk bumil dan busui?

Untuk bumil tidak disarankan karena khawatir paparan radiasi. Untuk busui, tergantung regime yang dilakukan. Jadi Pico Derma ini terdiri dari beberapa regime, ada yang perlu dianestesi ada yang tidak. Kalau toning dan pores itu tidak perlu dianestesi, jadi untuk busui masih oke. Kalau treatment flek itu perlu anestesti, sehingga tidak disarankan juga untuk busui.

FAQ: Worth it kah?

Kembali ke kasus masing-masing ya. Kalau aku personally, meskipun secara sekilas mungkin tidak terlalu kelihatan drastis efeknya, tapi aku memang merasa kulit wajah jauh lebih cerah. Mengingat selama hampir 30 tahun hidup ini aku gak pernah treatment muka, I think my skin deserves this rejuvenation. On the other hand, kalau kamu punya problem dengan bekas jerawat atau flek yang mengganggu, menurut aku treatment ini cukup worth it untuk diconsider. Silakan konsul dulu dengan dokternya so you can make an informed decision.

FAQ: Overall bagaimana pengalaman di Dermaster Pondok Indah?

I love it! Tempatnya bersih dan homey, dokter dan stafnya sangat friendly dan informatif. Di luar ruang treatment, ada ruang tunggu yang nyaman dan dilengkapi TV, jadi suami/pacar/anak atau siapapun yang menemani kamu treatment bisa betah menunggu. Selain itu, Dermaster juga punya produk-produk skincare yang bisa kamu beli untuk dipakai di rumah untuk maintain hasil treatment. So overall a good experience indeed! Thank you Dermaster and Clozette Indonesia.
