Lifestyle, Monthly Favs

Copy of JESSICALEAKY.COM

Another monthly favs! Here are my top picks from this month:


[The subtle art of not giving a f*ck –  IDR 256.000]

A counter-intuitive approach to living a good life. One thing I’ve learned from this book is to “choose your fucks wisely.” – WORD.

 

[Rollover Reaction SUEDED lip & cheek cream – IDR 129.000]

Forget Kylie lip kits & try this local brand! Not that I’m against Kylie Lip kits (i love Dolce K), but RR provides a better texture & you can use it as your lip cream, blush on, and eyeshadow. It’s perfect for your everyday use, quite long lasting, and super affordable. Plus, I’m currently obsessed with OMBRE lips effect, so this has been one of my Go-To beauty products! I usually wear LUCY (on the outer lip) & LIVV/UMMA (on the inner lip). MOSS & SALLY are my other favs too!

 

[The Daily Stoic: 366 meditations on Wisdom, Perseverance, and The Art of Living – IDR 363.000] 

A nice way to start your day in the morning! “One page a day, keeps your negativity away” – this book is meant to be read one day at a time, it’s simple yet uplifting. It provides lessons about personal growth, life management, and practicing mindfulness.

 

[Pop socket – IDR 4.000]

Trust me, it’s a better option than a ring holder. Normally these kind of pop sockets are being sold around 50k-75k each, but lemme tell you where i got mine… tokopedia! for only 4k each! I bought a bunch of them and gave it away for my fam members cos it’s so cheap! I bought myself a simple grey colored one so I can put stickers on top of it. Soooo useful and looks CUTE AF ❤

 

[Double-sided Pill Box – IDR 25.000 Daiso]

The perfect pill container for those of you who has allergies/ who gets sick easily! It’s a double sided box with a total of 7 compartments, making it easy for you to bring different kind of meds. I literally bring this wherever i go. Put this inside your purse & you can pop your pills anytime anywhere! (why does it sounds so wrong though?)

DIY Cookie Jar Arrangement

DIY PROJECTS

We all know someone who has OCD (Obsessive-Compulsive Disorder). You can simply tell someone has OCD if he/she’s obsessed with cleaning and having things symmetrical/ in perfect order. Well, my mom has OCD – growing up I always think that her hobby is doing house cleaning (like literally).

But you know what, being married and having my own space somehow makes me “a little bit” OCD.  Ideally I just want everything inside the apartment to look perfect & clean, especially when we have guests coming over. I guess married life comes with a greater responsibility, huh?

So while browsing though my social media, I came across a picture of Khloe Kardashian’s cookie jar arrangement. It somehow went viral & people started to follow her OCD styling tips. and so did I.

I tried myself, and I’m so happy with the result! It’s super duper easy and it looks so damn cute! Here’s the tutorial for Khlo-cd inspired cookie jar arrangement.

Stuffs you need:

  • 8 packs of original Oreo cookies (pretty sure you can find these anywhere)
  • 1 large glass jar with lid (I got mine at Lotte Mart, Gandaria City for Rp 100.100, – it’s a steal!)
  • a bit of patience goes along the way! (:

STEPS:

  1. First, make sure the jar is clean. Find the perfect glass jar might be a challenge. I tried searching at Ace Hardware, Informa, Hero, and so on, but still couldn’t find the right (read: affordable) jar. The diameter needs to be big enough and it needs to be modern looking. To cut short, I found my perfect jar at Lotte Mart Gandaria City at the discounted area for only Rp 100.100 (USD 9) – what a steal, right? I immediately bought 3 of those jars for my snack & detergent storage (*tutorial coming soon).
  2. Buy enough oreo cookies to fill inside the jar. My jar is approximately 20cm in diameter & it takes 8 packs of oreo cookies to fill out the whole jar. Please note that you’re not actually filling the whole jar – only on the inner side of the glass jar. I’ll show you some pictures so you get the idea.
  3. Open the lid of the jar. Start placing the first layer of oreos  on the inner side of the glass jar. For the second layer, you want to place the oreo on between 2 oreos from the first layer, creating alternation so it looks neat. Make sure to do the same thing for the 3rd, 4th, 5th layer and so on. Keep alternating & make sure you have even spacing between oreos.
  4. Keep filling the glass jar with oreos until it reaches almost to the lid. And voila, you’re done!

awesome way to showcase your snacks!

Now remember, your cookies will turn bad in a month, so make sure to empty your jar at the end of every month, cause who wants to eat bad oreos?
