White Jeans

Liz Hurley was really on to something all those years ago. If you’ve been privately pining to look as insouciant as a French fashion editor (because who hasn’t?), white denim is the key. Don’t quite have model pins? Look for a looser fit and a few strategic rips. Tres cool.

Back Track

Bags aren’t just about how to use them, but also about interesting material and stylish shape. When you’re hitting the Mall with friends, befriending the local bookstore or going on your next holiday destination, choose the appropriate bag to put all those gadgets in.

Try a backpack. Sling over one shoulder for effortless cool.

Aside

Ijen The Irresistable

Mount Ijen, located between Banyuwangi and Bondowoso regencies boasts a phenomenon that can only be seen in two places in the entire globe, which is the blue fire. The bluish flames of burning molten sultur can be seen inside the crater, which can be seen at night until just before sunrise. To reach the peak, you will have to ascend 3km of the mountain, usually starting around midnight. We started our journey at 4am just before sunrise and was extremely lucky.

Sulphur is extracted from the lake and a vulcanology post just below the crater. The sulphur collectors hike up in the morning and return around 1pm when the clouds rolls in. Trekkers are advised to do the same, but the clouds often disappear in the late afternoon.

The best time to make the hike is in the dry season between April and October.
