So glad that spring is really here. Bye bye to those 'too cold' days, and hello sunshine! :) Dear Spring, you have no idea how happy I am to finally meet you again. Thankyou for warming up the city, bringing happiness to us and for all the beauty you caused. Spring is time for dressing up more freely and creatively. I like the fact that we are now able to wear thinner clothes while it's still proper to wear coat/layers at the same time. Unlike the summer, when it is too hot for me. So please.. dear Spring, I need you to stay a little longer.

 Anyways I've been such a sneakerhead lately. I have some new pair of sneakers and I can not get enough. We walk a lot! here in europe, everybody does it. it's a normal thing. So it's okay to have lots of lots nice sneakers, don't you agree? hehe. In Indonesia it's so much different, most of the people go here and there by car, the ladies got more chances to wear higher heels, and stilettos. I don't say that it's impossible for us here to wear that kind of shoes, I wear 'em sometimes, it's just I find it not as flexible and comfortable as when I'm in my homeland.

I can say for now nike is my favourite brand for sneakers. they always have nice designs and their logo is just.. I don't know it looks nike, ups I mean.. 'nice'. cause it's nike. This red one I was wearing is a customize NikeId. Which means they already have the model, They gave you colour and pattern choices, so you can custom/design the shoes just like how you want it. you can even put your name on it. how nike is that! I was so in the mood for red cherry colour, I painted the same colour on my nail, and also put a red cherry headscarf on. Red is never dead.

REBORN AND BLOOM

Another post on the blog after almost 6 months since the latest feed. I am finally here, so excited to be back! and trying to keep you guys updated. Well, it's been a long long time, I know.. and to start fresh, I think it won't be complete without " Salam, and Hi! " with a little smiley :)  How you guys been doing ? I hope everything is going well with you.

If you're wondering what happened to me or this blog? and why didn't I post anything yet for that long?  Thankyou, I apreciate that. Alhamdulillah I am good and everything is fine. Life just gets bussier with some new things, some new projects,  new plans, I am enjoying it. But.. if I have to mention 2 Things that consumed my time, my energy and my mind the most lately, I'll tell you a little bit, they are.. First, Alhamdulillah I had just launched a Scarf brand, named after my name.. ' Nada Puspita ' on February 2015. And the official launching was held in Indoneisa, at Indonesia Fashion Week. InshaaAllah next time I will tell more about it in a blogpost.

Second... I was busy with my new career in music industry as a singer. This is the most exciting thing, probably one of the most exciting thing that ever happened in my life. You know, I have so much passion in Art, in music, especially singing. It has always been something that I really love to do. but just as one of my hobby, never knew that one day I'd take it seriously and jump into the music industry and be a professional singer. But now.. I can not believe this is happening.  I am thankful and grateful for this experience.. But still it's gonna be long journey for me. I have just started it out..
I was busy working on my first single tittled "No Me and You" which was released on March 2015. Puspita - No Me and You is now available on iTunes. and anyways thankyou for the so many positive feedback about the song , babes! Though the work, and the schedule were full and exhausting, but I am glad that I enjoyed it so much and because this is a new life to me,  I still am trying to get used to it. And also, to be able to work with and meet inspiring people is always nice. Well, everyone is inspiring to me honestly, hehe.

Oh anyways, not to forget in this little blogpost  , I wanna say congratulation, enjoy, and good luck, especially in this case , to all musicians and artists I do appreciate the love you give to such thing, to live for 'passion' and the work, the hard work, behind all "the fame, what people think, that it's easy, this and that"the fact that it is a way of life, there must be ups and downs. we all struggle and survive. God bless you with your talent. I hope all human could be more respectful to each other. and we all can 'successfully reach our own kind of success and build our own kind of happiness'. cause everyone's definition of "Success" and "Happiness" are not the same and that could be personal.

So those are the main two things. and still many other things that really took my time to go back sit and write in this little page. But... Beside the rush and everything.. If I have to be honest,  there is no day without thinking of my blog and you, my readers. That's true. I miss connecting with you, and share things. Inspire and get inspired. That is why when I come back, I want to start fresh. and now I am back to Germany, it means.. I can breathe a little bit from the super hectic life in Indonesia. It's time for me to sit, be calm, and work on other things. For months, I've been  making plans and preparing for my return. I've been working on this site and trying to rebuild it.

Reborn and Bloom , as written on the tittle of this post.
It's spring here in Europe. The flower starts to bloom again, The sun starts to shine more often, and The weather gets warmer. Everybody's happy and the city looks even more lovely. it's a good time to start new, to be more optimistic and excited about anything. and sure it's a good time for this page to bloom again.
You may have noticed something different with this site. yes, the brand new look, design, blog's name, domain. basically almost everything in this page, change. well I actually prefer to call it as an "Upgrade" instead of a "Change". because really it doesn't change , They're just .. improved.

I think this design suits my personality pretty well. It's pretty simple and clean. I like that. Blog's design is one of the most important thing to be concerned from owning a blog. It would be better if it fits your personality. The Design is what readers first notice or stay on their mind and could impact your readers on how they feel about your blog ( Take a note! It's a little tips, guys haha ). So, try to show your personality through your blog's design!

SKETCHES OF MIND by Indah Nada Puspita.
Perhaps some of you can still remember , that I have been using this tittle years ago, before my latest blog's name, and it's for the longest time comparing to other blog's name I have ever used. I decided to go back to Sketches of Mind as I realized and felt that this name fits me best and remember that day I was so confident and satisfied the first time I decide Sketches of Mind as my blog's name. The meaning itself fits really well with the content that I want to share on this site. Sketches of Mind, is a little page where I like to share some stuffs, some things, some thoughts, some ideas, that is running inside my brain, which are mostly things related to art and life, some inspirations, some sketches of my mind.


Above all, The point is... that I wanna feel as comfortable as possible on blogging. the time, the content, things I'd like to share, the style, the outfits, and the blog itself. and so by that I hope you could feel comfortable enough too to stay with me and share things together. Hope there always be something good you can keep from this site and hope all the good things are blessings for us all and everyone. So let us try to see the beauty in everything.


and with this post I proudly say that Sketches of Mind... is reborn.

Ps : Big thanks to my dearest Ollyvia Laura from Something Real Serious blog and her genious  sweetheart for helping me on the process, for helping me to work this out. You guys Rock! I won't make it happen without you guys, Thankyou. xoxo

BEAUTY AND THE BEACH

Hi everyone! here are some shots when I was having fun times at the beach last vacation in Indonesia. I still can remember how beautiful that was. I am actually not a beach kind a girl. I never know that spending time at the beach could be that fun before. But now, I am craving for more moments like that! Beach please :)

I decided to wear a dress at the beach that day so that I could get more beautiful picture and it was actually soo comfortable to wear. the dress moves beautifully with the wind and the colour also matches the colour of the sea. it looks clean and pretty . cause I ain't gonna look -just like that- on my beach picture , like c'mon! I don't have moment like this everyday, even everymonth. haha

never forget to bring my Mazaya cosmetics. 'Compact powder + lipstick' is a must! and also wear sunblock to keep your skin from getting too dark for a second hehe. I was saying "too dark" cause you can not deny that you're skin is getting a lil bit darker after spending time at the beach. but enjoy the time!

BUBBLES AND THE HORSIES

I miss last vacation in Indonesia! I miss having quality times with the family. the most comfort moment is always when we're among our beloved ones. I miss that warmth :), but hey! here is a little flashback when I was having good times with them at Berastagi - North Sumatera, Indonesia, wearing a camobutter sweater from moshaict by Itang Yunasz. Sneakers - on, playful mode - on ! blow me some bubbles :)

BUTTERFLIES AND LAKE TOBA

I am more a skirt kinda person. for me, Skirt looks and feels magical when I am wearing it. It brings out the woman/"ladylike"side in me. it makes me feel like a princess. That is why I love skirts, esp flare skirts. It just sometimes does not really fit with my daily activity and the season at the moment. cause I go to college and it's autumn. not the best time to wear skirts. and to be honest it's a lil bit hard to find skirt that I really like, fits my idealism. If you followed me from long time ago, you must be already know that I had my own brand, and I designed some skirts. beautiful skirts that match my idealism. Too sad I am now not able to continue that brand cause I am so busy with other things at the moment. hopefully one day I could still continue my passion in designing and makes all my outfits ideas alive! but for now, here is a lovely skirt from moshaict by Itang Yunasz which I do love!
