a house is not a home

scarf - thrifted; top - Sportsgirl; skirt - Indonesian department store

I made a sudden decision a couple of days ago that I'm going to fly home (to Indonesia) in just over 1 week from now. This is around the time of year when I always feel terribly homesick, and luckily some things just fell into place, the timing was right, so I just had to go for it! To say that I'm excited is an understatement! So right now I'm arranging a bunch of scheduled blog posts for when I'm away, and hopefully I'll be able to do some photography and blogging while I'm there as well.

Another thing I need to do before I go: ETSY SALES!! I'm having a massive 50% off sale at Dahliaville, and a 25% off sale at Much Love. Both are storewide, and both will end on Monday, August 2nd. So do check it out asap and I really really hope you'll find something you like! Not only will I love you forever, I'll also add in a little surprise for all purchases made during the sale ;)

I will absolutely be taking advantage of the sale. I just saw your Much Love Etsy for the first time this weekend and fell in love with one particular piece. So excited!

I love that deep blue, very pretty colour, the red scarf really sets it off. Now I'm pondering whether I have similar colours in my wardrobe I can wear to uni tomorrow, hmm...

Home is Indonesia? How great is that. I've been there once and Indonesian food is my favorite food by far(lots of people from Indonesia live in Holland, so plenty of that food here.) Have a great and safe trip. XX

I can't wait to see pictures from your trip home. I know you'll have an incredible time! Isn't it perfect when things just fall into place like that?

That is one lovely scarf. I love the colors and the little printed castles. It works wonderfully as a belt and compliments the rest of your outfit beautifully.
