Random : The Effectivity of Instablogging and Tips for Instablogging

A photo posted by Margareta Vania | 김환혜 (@margaretavania) on
Instablogging is basically when you use Instagram application on your phone as your based of blog publication. You can easily share pictures or videos, add the location, and explain something on the caption bar, not only that you can share your pictures or videos on other social medias such as facebook or twitter. 

Instablogging is such an effective way to keep in touch with your followers and share so many great moments. Instablogging, i think it's way easier to be controlled rather than blogging in the actuall blog platform such as blogspot/blogger.com, tumblr.com, and many more. You can easily type the information at the caption bar without thinking about what things which you want to say in paragraphs. 

My instagram account is @margaretavania, you can follow me there and let me know if you already follow my instagram because i can definitely follow your account back (if i like your instagram gallery as well). My instagram account is basically sharing about fashion, beauty, food and travel, the others are going to be lifestyle and events. Plus, i share about endorsement products that i recommend to my followers. 

To make Instablogging easier than you probably thought i have some tips that you can follow and don't forget if you do the same tricks as me, i will feel glad if my tips work on you. The Tips are :
  1. Using hashtag to make a group of updates. Personally, i make my own personal hashtags and use those on my instagram account. (My Hashtags : #margaretavaniafashionpost, #margaretavaniafoodjourney, #margaretavaniatraveljourney, #margaretavaniaendorsement, #margaretavaniaevent, #margaretavaniasongcover, and #margaretavaniainterior) It's making my life easier and make my followers just need to click or search the hashtags to see updated that connected with their own prefference.
  2. Post good picture only! People are more visual and you can't judge them because you are also visual. Maybe you already tired to read this blog post right away. But please make your gallery instagram clean and nice by posting good picture. Great quality  photos for instablogging is also being an important factor.
  3. Followers are important but followers are not everything. Maybe you can see a lot of people that do instablogging try so hard to get followers. But believe on me, followers are not everything. There are several people who have thousands of followers but they are not improving in content or even there are no companies who want to coorperate with those people. Sad but true. I have 3,500 followers on instagram, it's nothing if you compare me with other Indonesian and International famous bloggers. But i can say that i do a great job to keep clients work with me. I offer great deal on endorsement, sponsorship, and collaboration. So at the end, it's not all about followers. Even my followers on my blog and instagram are not really active. Sometime, it makes me mad because why you follow me since the first time huh?  LOL. It makes no sense. People sometime follow me because they want followback. In fact, if i don't like your gallery i won't follow you back. I believe you are going to do the same thing as me.
  4. Edit your instagram picture is not a sin. Yes, just edit your instagram picture with application called VSCO, Snapseed, or anything. Remember people are visual! But also don't over doing picture or photo editing.
  5. Add location, it can help to recommend other people to try to visit that place. Why not? If you go traveling around Asia or Europe or America. Add your location then! Your picture also ca be organized at the location map on your instagram profile. Use technology properly. Don't be lazy to add location.
So that's all! I don't want to make this post longer. I hope all of you who want to make instagram account or people who already have instagram account, all of you can make instagram as the productive application. Maybe someday you can earn more money by doing Instablogging because clients and people pay for you to do something like promote their products, write amazing caption and photos for their company, and so on.

Don't forget to catch my newest update on my isntagram, @margaretavania!
Good luck!

ODIOLI.com x Tex Saverio Capsule Collection Launch Party 2014












My OOTD Details, click here!

Some of you ask me "why don't you update about Tex Saverio's event?" So here it is, my past event to Tex Saverio's new Capsule Collection Launch Party. I got the invitation delivered to my home which was so nice, thanked to ODIOLI.com!! [By the way,..I really love ODIOLI.com, you can buy a lot of fashion items there from ordinary - designer brands.] As you probably know, i am a huge fan of Tex Saverio and his creations. I made an old blog post about his design for Lady Gaga long time ago, click here to see it!

A dream came true! Finally, i met him in real life. I didn't take any photo of me and him, but i took photo with other blogger friends and he was in the middle of the frame. It was okay. He was so busy went over here and there, he said hi to medias, to his clients, and some important people. I couldn't stop him or even force him just like "gosh, please take photo with meeee!" I would be get kicked out from the venue.

So what do you guys learn from this post? Imagine, do something, and you get it. I never think that i can meet him or even say Hi! to him. But i did meet him last year and i said Hi! to him awkwardly. I did sign the welcoming board I am just like, who the hell am i? HAHAHA. I think my effort to keep blogging and trust to my own feeling definitely brought me to that moment.

PS : In real life, he was just same like a japanese manga character. Cutie and fierce at the same time! Surprisingly he's so petite.





Good luck and God Bless!

I am just trying new things




Glasses - Margareta Vania Wardrobe, Dress - Zeeos_id, Wedges - Steve Madden, Necklace - Floshop, Temporary Tattoos - Art on You

(click the brands to see their collections!)

Basically this is not my formal fashion post. I just try to wear some endorsement stuffs and i feel quite funny. Yes, i know it's kind of a bloddy miss match. In a funny way,....Especially about the dress. My mom says that i really look alike as a spanish girl with that dress. She tells me to go to the spanish festival with that dress. But i am not spanish so,...i am not going to that kinf of event lol.

By the way, i just got a new pair of wedges from Steve Madden. I believe it's called Pammy Wedges, correct me if i am wrong here. It's really freaking comfortable and high at the same time. Believe me or not, i only have 2 pair of wedges at my shoe rack. The rest shoes are flats (included sneakers) and heels. I am not into this kind of style, perfectly as you can see. I prefer dress up casual and pair everything with my sneakers or convers.

How about you? Do you often wear dresses when you go out?








Good luck and God Bless!

Team Carousell Singapore x Jakarta Bloggers Meet Up



(Margareta Vania aka Me, Diras, Oliv, and Tata)

Location : Pizza Hut, Grand Indonesia, Central of Jakarta

My outfit of the day : White Cape Blazer, Inner - ZARA, Legging and Beanie - UNIQLO, Wedges - Steve Madden Pammy

Some of you probably do not know them really well, that's why i want to feature them in my blog. I hope all of you can also get to know them from now on. Support us as always!

Firstly, i met Diras at INFARE 3. This meet up was actually being my second time to meet her in real life. She is really cute and her Japanese sense of style is definitely being suitable for her petite body. I love how she was being talkative to me and other friends from Team Carousell Singapore. We talked a lot, especially about Xia Xue's viral post about Gushcloud and Gushcloud responses. LOL we really do up to date. She is the new talent for Japan Station Navigator, please support her and follow her if you really love Japan. She does deserve more attention. Her attitude is so bubbly and fun! Click here to know her more! If some of you who don't know Japan Station Navigator, you better search it on Google to know more. Diras is being their new talent to sing and dance, also to promote Japanese culture, fashion style, and etc about Japan in Indonesia. When some people like to judge this kind of job as a copycat act of Japanese artists, well you are just stupid. She does damn things to promote Japan.

About Oliv and Tata, they are actually working as internship employees at Carousell Singapore (The No. 1 Best app for you to selling your new and preloved stuffs). We all called them Team Carousell (in fact all people who support Carousell, we called them as Team Carousell as well). I had been worked with them for several months since last year. I did collaboration with Carousell Singapore to open my own garage sale brand, as you can see at my blog side bar. It's all being facilitated by Carousell Singapore. Thanked to the internet because Oliv finally found me as blogger partner.

Well, i think that's it. I think this post is bringing a fresh feeling to you, because i am not sharing things about my self. See you at the next blog post!





Good luck and God Bless!

Beauty Review : Etude House Precious Mineral BB Cream Blooming Fit [Natural Beige]


Hey long time no see! I am back with new beauty review of my new favorite BB Cream. At first time, i didn't really want to try this BB Cream. I felt afraid if this BB Cream could break my skin out. I search for several recommendations and i decided my self to got it online. Do not be afraid because it's original Etude House, not the fake one. I never do beauty review on fake products and recommended to you guys. Just no. 

I think this review can help you out before you buy this BB Cream from Online or Etude House counter at your local mall / nearest mall from your home. This blooming fit is also really suitable for any kind of skin type honestly but it is working at its best on combination skin.

FIRST IMPRESSION ON THE COLOR :



HOW TO APPLY :

If you are wondering "Margaret, do you use makeup sponge to blend your BB Cream?" The answer is YES. Asian girls nowadays really love to do natural and light makeup, honestly it's because korean makeup trend is spreading around the world.

But, if makeup sponge does take too much product (because the BB Cream does absorbed to the makeup sponge), i think foundation brush does a great job to replace the makeup sponge. Basically if you want to spread and blend the BB Cream without thinking to use any tools, just use your clean hand.

GREAT THINGS :

The smell of this BB Cream is amazing. It doesn't smell fruity but it also doesn't smell to rosy (like a damn flower). It just does smell good, so fresh and a little bit chillin when you apply it to your skin. Also you can use it for a long long time. Hmmm, except if you like to apply too much BB Cream on your skin, it is not going to last longer than you expected before.

APPLICATION REVIEW AND BLEND OUT TEST :



The BB Cream DOES LOOK REALLY BRIGHT! BUT....Just be easy girl, you just need to blend it more and do not apply too much at your skin. The BB Cream color is going to be blend out perfectly and you are ready to apply the next step to complete your makeup. 

So at the end of the review, do i recommend this to you? Of course! Personally, i kinda like this BB Cream and i hope some of you give a try to this BB Cream. Etude House is a well known korean makeup brand, so i think it's not going to be bad on their BB Cream lines.



If you want to see another beauty review, i am going to update more! I hope all of you can learn how to improve your makeup skill and always be pretty. Remember, almost people are so visual these days, your makeup look is one of the reason to get a good first impression. There is nothing wrong to apply a little bit makeup, isn't it? If people say "i love girls who look naturally pretty." The fact girls do natural makeup and skin care. No one is pure natural in this world except under age kids or baby. HAHAHA. 





Good luck and God Bless!

Margaret

Random : What things did happen in 2014?


Finally, i have a bit of time to write something on my public diary. I can't tell you about how the time that goes too fast. I need to be proud of my self because i achieve so many things already in 2014, but it is not making me preach on other people. I am not successful yet, i am just growing to be better than before. That's all. So i think why don't i share to you some of amazing things which did happen in 2014. Throwback to appreciate my own self.


I am totally blessed with everything, these are more than enough. In one year, i went through many things. I went through disappointment, happiness, break up, rising, sadness, and everything. I am being stronger and being way more mature than before.

The saddest moments : I lost my beloved Grandma. I even can't stop crying when i see her photo. We are just too close to each other, heart to heart. :(

Some people ask me if i want to get married after i graduate, the answer is no. Some people ask me if i am now currently single or not. Yea in between probably, i am on my break but clearly i am using my break time far away from "falling in love" virus with other person. I live in the different country from a person that i love, now we are just having a break for awhile.  I am busy with my life and he is busy with his life. I am still talking with him (that Korean man) via chat application, but show must go on. We are going to meet in this year, just hope. I met him in May 2014. I need to admit that, yes i miss him a lot.

But i am afraid at the same time. Unrequited love is being my boyfriend for such a long time. I can 't see the differences between real love or friends with benefits. I am just being afraid. So my decision is going to be with my own for awhile. I am being way more mature than before. I see that "happiness is just standing for awhile, everything is being here just for awhile."

The happiest moments : when I can earn my own money. I can buy several things that i want on my wish list by my own money and savings. I need to be proud here, sorry to say i am proud of my self. I don't want to be over proud of my own self too because i achieve all these things because my family and friends help me so. Also, i got high scores at campus. My GPA's 3.8 outta 4.0 :") I met so many amazing people and inspirations. I took so many photos with public figures, my blogger friends, and many people that i never imagine before to be met with. I got featured in some websites and magazine. I also held my second seminar and talk show at Grand Indonesia, it was amazing! I also do some collaborations with many clients and online shops in one year.

Here they are :
(Complete details about date release, click here!)















I can't wait to see what will happen in 2015. If some of you who want to do a collabo with me make sure you email me to margareta.vania@gmail.com! Let's make a new memory and achievement this year together. I was starting my journey on internet since forever. I am glad because everything is turning well. Well done!

Happy new year, let's making memories and achieve new things in 2015!

Brother and Sister Travel Casual Outfit Idea and Tips



  
"when you want to take your camera and your bro snaps it. damn."




Top - COLORBOX Indonesia, Skater Skirt - Korea, Socks - TOPSHOP, Shoes - NB, Snapback - Snapback World ID, Bag - my mom's LV

I never post about my brother's outfit update because he is hella not getting interested to dress up. I never hear people compliment about his crocs sandals. HAHAHA. I think, it sounds weird if someone says "you look amazing with your converse!" but what ever lah. But because these photo were taken during my traveling and trip to Central Java last year, finally i decide to update these photos. 

"The point of travel outfit is to dressing up as simple as possible."

I suggest you to wear long sleeve top with cotton material because it doesn't feel hot when you wear it. Plus, long sleeve top protects your skin from the sun light and from strange thing which could scratch your skin.

You are going to walk alot. You never know what thing is going to be happen, so make sure if you want to wear skirt...use inner under it or choose skort as your bottom. The other choice to wear pants to make sure your legs don't get chilly. Do not forget to wear your favorite comfortable pair of sneakers. 

For accessories, you can rock your backpack for example : Adidas backpack collections are kinda cool and minimalistic for travel. I suggest you again to wear your favorite snapback, it protects your head from againnn the freaking hot sun light and rain during the rainy day.





Good luck and God Bless!

Margaret
