I ❤ Summer Tag

Hi everyone!  I had a long nap today after so long. It was really nice. Earlier today, I attended a firm event. This was my company's 2nd annual golf scramble. I've never picked up a golf club ever in my life nor I've gone to a golf course before. I'd always thought golf is fancy smanchy sports. Some people might hate me for saying this, but I'd never thought golf as a sport. But today, I can see it as a sport for walking almost 2 miles carrying my golf club sets. I was told that I was a natural, but I don't know. I don't really like it. It's a lot of waiting time, and I prefer a more upbeat, heart-pumping sport.

Anyway, I wasn't sure what to do for a blog post. But then I remember of Ingrid's (missglamorazzi)
I ❤ Summer Tag  video. You can check out her video here. Let's get started!

1. Favorite bronzer for summer?
 I am matte bronzer kinda gal. I don't really like shimmery bronzer. It just makes my face looks like a disco ball, especially during the day when the sun hits my face. It's just too much for a daytime look. Lately I've been using Rimmel Sunny matte bronzer, but to be honest, I don't love it. It does the job, but I prefer TooFaced Chocolate Soleil matte bronzer with its deeper tone and chocolate scent.

2. You're relaxing in a hammock, on a tropical island. What are you sipping on? 
(Favorite summer drink)
Most likely coconut water. I love love love coconut water, especially during hot days like now. My favorite is from this Vietnamese dessert place called Bambu and it's dessert #1. It's so yummy!

3. Favorite summer lip product?
I prefer moisturizing tinted lip product rather than full on lipstick. Lately I've been using Revlon Kissable balm stain and Revlon lip butter. They're just so easy to apply and feel comfortable on the lips.

4. Pool or Beach?
I'm kinda in between with this one. I like hanging out at the beach, but I like swimming in the pool better. I gotta admit, I'm a little bit of scared to swim in the sea. It's just beyond my scope of swimming ability to stand against the waves. Haha. I like both, but if I have to choose, I'll choose beach regardless.
More natural, more freedom.

5. Summer = crazy hair! What's your must-have styling product?
I don't really have any issue with crazy hair. I naturally have fine straight hair, and they are mendable, in most times. But one thing that I now can't live without is dry shampoo. I just love spraying them on every other day when I have my "second hair day" to absorb the excess oil. I love Suave dry shampoo. The scent is really refreshing!

6. Sun bathing or fake tan?
I am definitely a tanning virgin. Haha. I don't sun bath and I don't fake tan. I haven't touched base on any tanning or whatnot. But I gotta say, I don't like sun bath to get the color. I don't like sun-bathing period. I guess, coming from Asia, especially from where I'm from, sun-bathing is not what we normally do. Instead, it's something we avoid. People in my hometown prefer porcelain looking skin. Different country different perception of beauty. Interesting, isn't it?

7. Favorite summer nail polish?
Wet n Wild "I have a Refresh-mint". Fun, bright pastel color. Looks good on anybody!

8. Any summer traditions?
I 'officially' started to have summer in 2009. Indonesia doesn't really have summer. It's tropical season all year round. So, every summer, I got 12 weeks of holiday and I went back to my hometown and just hang out. Now, after I started working, the only summer tradition that I can think of is camping. I have it every year now with my friends.

9. Favorite summer scent?
I love floral scent. The perfume that I've been using is Daisy eau so fresh by Marc Jacob. The scent doesn't get old!

10. Favorite BBQ food?
Might be a boring answer, but I love meat. As long as it's meat and it's bbq, i'll eat it!  lol

11. What's your favorite summer-proof product?
Urban Decay All Nighter setting spray. It keeps my makeup in place. At first I thought this product was kinda a joke. Why would you spray liquid to a perfectly made-up face? But I see it now. It just sets the makeup products on your face and locks them in place. It doesn't 100% prevent smudging, but it reduces oil and what not. It's extremely important especially during the hot summer weather.
I also have my handy dandy facial sunscreen from my dermatologist. Sunscreen is important! Prevent aging, sunspot as early as possible guys!

12. Any summer vacation plans this year? No plans? Tell us about your dream summer trip!
Nope, no vacation plan except for a weekend camping trip in late August. I'm saving my PTO for Christmas. So excited! I don't really have a dream vacation, but I did enjoy my trip to Avilla Beach. I think it's a perfect place for a summer getaway. The place is just so quiet and relaxing. I'd love to go there again soon.
