Weekend Roundup: What Are You Looking For This Weekend?

Looking for special deals on makeup?

Here’s some good news for fans of tinted lipgloss, theBalm, or both: the purveyors of paraben-free cosmetics are having a shopping special on all BalmShelter colors. Until January 31, they will be available at a discounted price of Rp. 168,000 (down from the usual Rp. 210,000).

Think your skin is the only part of your face that needs sun protection? These tinted lip glosses come with SPF 17 to protect your puckers against the same UV-A and UV-B radiation that damage and age our skin whenever we step out into the sun. The ingredient that gives you soft and moisturized lips is jojoba oil, so they remain protected from the elements that our Southeast Asian climate throws at us.

BalmShelter comes in a dizzying variety of shades to help keep your lips protected no matter what the occasion. You can find theBalm counters at Glow Plaza Indonesia, Seibu Grand Indonesia, Matahari Mal Taman Anggrek, or online at Zalora.

Looking for motivation to exercise?

The Nike Flyknit sneakers helped convert an entire generation of non-runners into running fanatics. The Flyknit series has been particularly popular and successful thanks to its flexibility and comfortable cushioning systems combined with lightweight materials that make the sneaker feel like second skin to anyone wearing it.

The new year has also brought about a new version of the running shoe by combining the technology of the Flyknit with the ultra-cushioning technology of the Air Max: this happy union between flexibility and support has resulted in the brand new Nike Flyknit Air Max, available in an irresistible gradient of bright colors. If you’ve been looking for an excuse to run, this is a good place to start :)

The Nike Flyknit Airmax will soon be available at Nike Grand Indonesia and Nike Pacific Place.

Looking forward to a caffeine kick?

If you’re looking forward to spending your weekend with a book and a cup of coffee, swing by your favorite Starbucks to try out a new beverage exclusive to Indonesia in the Asia Pacific region: the Asian Dolce Latte and Asian Dolce Frappuccino are a mix of dark-roasted Starbucks Espresso Roast and dolce sauce. The resulting drink is a sweet and smooth combination that’s sure to give you a much-needed pick-me-up once 4 PM rolls around.

This season, Starbucks has also released two new designs of the Starbucks Card to celebrate the Chinese New Year of the Horse and Valentine’s Day. These limited-edition cards require a minimum of Rp. 300,000 and Rp. 100,00 respectively to activate; and if you already own a Starbucks card, you’re eligible to a free Gingerbread drink with any Asian Dolce purchase until January 20. There’ll be shortage of coffee-induced kicks this month!

Have a great weekend, ladies!
