#LiveSuper Christmas Holiday with Samsung Galaxy TabS2

 photo IMG_9789_zpsx0c4bisi.jpg

It's that time of the year again, where I finally have chance to go on holiday for a week just because it's Christmas! After a hectic holiday season, where I had the launch of kidswear and a busy month at my boutique, I need a break to relax, and I wanted everything to be perfect. I planned this trip a month before, and just because I have my new Samsung Galaxy TabS2 with me, I can book my plane ticket and accommodation as well as research for itinerary anytime of the day when I'm free, like mostly when I'm on the car or while waiting for dinner.

Long story short, the day arrived and it's beginning to look a lot like Christmas. The first thing that impressed me about Samsung Galaxy TabS2 is just how light it is. Like I can carry it around in my bag without feeling too heavy. I woke up every morning looking up online for the weather forecast with my Samsung Galaxy TabS2 because I plan my outfit around it. During the day and night I use it to read reviews and special deals as well as find the hottest eating spot in town. And when we are walking I used the Google Map app quite a lot, and there is enough battery life.

As usual, we took so many photos during the day and because the Samsung Galaxy TabS2 has an expandable storage, I can easily transfer my photos there and choose what to post on my social media quickly. On top of that, I believe that the tablet has a great battery life! A full battery will lasts a regular day use.

I run a business back home and I still have to reply important emails and connect with my team back in Indonesia, thus, Samsung Galaxy TabS2 is very handy when it comes to emails and downloading files, because it supports almost every file type. At the end of my holiday, I would say that the Galaxy TabS2 is a brilliant travel companion and I will surely bring it on my next holiday with me.

Hong Kong holiday photo by SweetEscape

It was a beautiful Christmas season in Hong Kong and I was so happy to have these photos taken by the sweetest photographer Shawn Kei from the SweetEscape team (@sweet.escape) on Instagram. We did a 2 hour long shoot with 3 outfit changes. It was a fun, relaxed shoot because from the beginning we wanted everything to be natural and lively. After all, the best part of every vacation are the memories. Here are my favourites from over 100 images!

I actually had around fifteen friends who spent Christmas together in Hong Kong but they weren't able to shoot that day because of the different schedules. I was with my sister, Sharon and my cousin Christabel. Then I had to push my boyfriend to join for a couple shoots just because I loved seeing him in winter outfits.

What kind of smile do you want to have?

 photo VDS_3185_zpss5pyv8uv.jpg

When I came to my dentist appointment last week at Gigi Sehat Dental, I received so many compliments from dr Immilia. She just loved how my teeth looked like compared to my last appointment and she's so happy with the fact that everything is according to the plan. She explained using the computer simulation how we are now 'over' the difficult part. She explained what the pressure points were, and how the Invisalign treatment was progressing towards the desired alignment. I will explain about this more on my next post.

I was also asked: What kind of smile do you want to have? I can really decide if I'm happy with the current smile, or if I want to alter it. Actually it sounded quite funny to me, but after her explanation of how Invisalign treatment (or Invisalign aligners) can be used to lower your upper teeth or shape your jaw by how many millimetres, this really literally means that everyone can 'design' their own smile!

I don't have any problems with my current smile, so I just need to complete the treatment and we are now on the 22nd tray. There will only be slight movements and no other major changes after this tray. I think it is safe to say that Invisalign treatment didn’t hurt at all with my case. You can read my last post about how to keep you disciplined and I can't wait to reveal more about my final progress next month!

We had our lovely guests, kids fashion influencers who were all dressed in matching denim! Such an honour to have everyone in our store and received so much inputs on the kids fashion market and trends from their moms. My friends also came over and we had such a great time.

Nalistic nail spa opening party

Congratulations to my dear friend Alice for the opening of her own nail salon in town. I've known her since my Uni days and it's such a wonderful time to witness her dreams come true. The salon has its one of a kind Moroccan theme interiors. Here are some photos from the opening party sometime last month.

I was there to get my nails done (obviously). They have everything from full on nail spa, to gelish manicures. The service is great and of course all the staff is friendly and helpful. It's been three weeks since my visit and my nails are still looking pretty good. Well done, Nailistic!
