Cabin in The Wood, Lake Guntersville

Cabin in The Wood
We were driving at night for 8 hours from Golf Shore to Guntersville. It was cold autumn night, the fog was hovering the road. We passed by Albertville first and went to wooden area surrounded by fog around 11pm. It was eerie and I felt jumpy. I was worried something might pop out on the middle of the road. The road was pretty empty. We only saw one or 2 cars passing us.

The Empty Camp Site
The cabin was located near Camp Ney A Ti surrounded by few smaller cabins and woods area. The House cabin in front of us was used by a sick old man and his sister. The other cabin several meters away from our cabin looks like a witch's house. So scary that I don't dare to take picture of it.

The next day, we went to Huddle House to get some breakfast. I was craving for some pancake or waffle. The portion was realllllly huge. I can only ate a quarter of the portion. But it was really good pancake. Boyfriend said that the one from iHop should be even better. Next time, I would like to try this one.

We drove back to the cabin because his dad will come and stay with us in the cabin. He is going to take me sailing with his boat. Sailing is his passion. I found an old newspaper about a young boy building his own boat with the money he had been saving, turned out that young boy was dad. He took so much pride for his boat and his hobby.

After sailing, we decided to go to The Lodge on top of the hill to see the sunset and the view of the lake. The Lodge is a hotel located on top of the hill in Guntersville State Park. I assume it must be state owned hotel. It has amazing view.
He came over to our car on our way to go to the Lodge.

We went to get grocery immediately since we decided to do BBQ. We had a late dinner because we were too busy sightseeing in The Lodge. Dad and Bf cooked BBQ burger for us. It was a very satisfying dinner accompanied with good wine that dad bought from Germany. 
Yummy Beef Burger
Germany Wine 
Dad likes to drink his wine with Sarden.
It was only a short visit to Guntersville. But I enjoyed the sailing, sunset gazing, sightseeing, and BBQ-ing with Dad and Bf. Cabin in the wood is kinda scary, but it was warm inside and I felt safe somehow.

The Color for Your Lips

Don't you just love it when you see all that pretty colors?

Despite of being a beauty blogger, I am not as experienced or as good as most of beauty bloggers out there in terms of putting on cosmetic on my face. Mostly because I am kinda picky on stuffs and I am not good at art. Kudos to all the ladies (or not ladies) who put on make up on their face regularly. I am seriously bad at drawing eyebrows, eye shadow, highlighting, etc.

I am so bad at those stuffs that the only make up that I regularly wear/use will be lipstick. Who else agree with me that a single touch of lipstick can already heighten the feature of your face? Even if I am not good at putting on make up, but I can at the very least put on some color on my lips. That would already categorize as make up for me. That is why picking up a good color and a good quality of lipstick is such a big deal to me. I am a sucker for colorful, bright lipsticks.

I love this small size Vaselline Lip Balm. It is odorless and no color. It feels kinda sticky a bit. But I adore the result so much. I started put on this  lip balm every night before bed and every morning before put on some lipstick. I haven't had chap lips ever since. I forgot to put it on for a week. But still, it hasn't change much.

 This is Sephora's product. I forgot the price for this one. Bought it in Huntsville. So I assume it should be slightly cheaper than the one in Indonesia. I just try it today, not much to tell for now.

I loooooove this one.
Got it in Sephora, the brand is SmashBox, color Vivid Violet. I love the result on my lips, not too dark but not too light either. Got the perfect combination of dark/light color for my lips and definitely suitable for brown-ish skin like mine. Other reason to love this product is that it is moisturize my lips perfectly. You know, sometimes a product would tell us that they do have moisturizer or Vitamin E on their product but you ended up with chapped lips anyway. Yeah, this is not like that. I don't really need lip balm for this one. I tried it immediately after buying it and it was a windy autumn in Alabama. Yet, I got my lips moisturized with this gorgeous lipstick. Definitely wanna try more color from SmashBox now.

This one is L'oreal 262 (Fresh as Rose), pink rosy color. I used this one more often than the rest. The color is very appropriate for office, a date, girls day out, sunny day, etc.
Very important that this one also gives me the right amount of moisturizer with or without the lip balm.

I am still on the look for a very vibrant bright pink lipstick, a vibrant neon orange lipstick, a dark Alabama red lipstick, a dark purple lipstick, a vibrant bright red lipstick. So if you are currently using or if you know certain brands of lipstick that match my description also has moisturizer (a good one obviously), Do let me know!?

I will hunt for some more of this colorful lipstick.

Cheerios Ladies,
