Enough is enough.

These past few weeks the devil has attacked my mind in the area of self-image.. I just feel like I don't look good enough, I'm not beautiful, I'm not attractive and so on.. I realize that I have to make a bold decision. I have to unfollow "fashion bloggers" on my Instagram that have been a big influence in my life.. I know it's hard to not be wanting to look good in this era. Everything around us just bombards us with the message of "buy this product, it will make your skin glow. Drink this vitamin, it will make you look younger" and the list goes on.. I am powerless to stop that ads. I know we're just gonna be fed with those kinds of thing everyday.. The choice is on us. Do we wanna buy those lies or not? I'm not saying that all beauty companies are liars.. some products do really work! But, do we want to be defined by them? Until when are we gonna be satisfied? The truth is, we're never gonna be satisfied unless we find our identity in Christ. I grew up in the entertainment industry. I started modeling when I was a baby! I remember being a model of a baby product. I just felt the need to always look good until I got to a point where my heart screamed "enouuugh!!" I can't live like that anymore.. I can't keep up with this world. I can't keep up with the latest beauty products. I can't keep up with the latest fashion style. I just can't keep up with the trends. I know that I'm still a part of this entertainment industry but I really can't be like the (most) people in this industry.. if not keeping up with the latest trends/fads is causing me to be left behind, then it is better for me to be left behind in this world rather than being left behind in my spiritual life.. I'm sorry if this post sounds so intense, I just can't help it anymore. If you're a fashion blogger/a beauty blogger, I still love you ❤️ this is not your fault, this is just something that happens in this fallen world. I know some beauty bloggers who are still real and honest on their posts.. beauty is not on the outside but beauty is in your mind and heart.

Xoxo,

Surface Skin Habit

Surface Skin Habit


Hi girls! Jumat lalu, aku berkesempatan untuk mencoba Hydra Facial di Surface Skin Habit yang berlokasi di lantai dasar Cilandak Townsquare (Citos). Tempatnya lucu & cozy bangeet..


Aku ingin share sedikit nih tentang pengalaman-ku waktu facial untuk pertama kali di Surface Skin Habit :)

Pas pertama kali masuk, langsung suka banget sama atmosphere and ambience-nya yang super homey and cozy. Staff-nya juga ramah banget so I really feel welcomed there..

When I first got there, yang mereka lakuin adalah men-register data aku.. Nama, Umur, Riwayat alergi kulit dsb. Setelah itu, nggak beberapa lama kemudian, mereka langsung bawa aku ke suatu ruangan dimana aku bisa berkonsultasi langsung dengan dokternya tentang kulit aku. Ruangannya juga nyaman dan bersih (that's the most important thing!) Naah.. disitu aku konsul ke dokter-nya kalau kulit aku sebenernya ga terlalu berjerawat tapi sering ada bruntusan atau komedo kecil2.. Ternyata, setelah aku konsul, memang komed…

We are imported: Mask of Magnaminty!

About a few weeks ago, I tried this organic mask from Lush that I bought from @weareimported on Instagram. First, I'm going to make a review on this online shop :) Then, I'm going to give a review on the mask :)

I ordered my mask on Monday and then I got the package on Wednesday, so I can say that they're pretty quick! I found out about this online shop when I was doing some research on this mask (As you know, I always do a research first before buying a product) and I'm really satisfied with their service! They're always quick to respond to my questions, they don't complicate the shipping process and the package was nicely packed.

Now, let's do a review on this product!

I first heard about Mask of Magnamity from Simply Grace on Youtube https://m.youtube.com/watch?t=320s&v=Yh1onvr64Kw and because of that, I decided to buy it online! Haha

So far, I really like the scent and the mint sensation on my face. Honestly, I haven’t really seen significant change…

Living life to the fullest

I feel like a lot of people worry about the future too much. What if I get older and nothing's changed. What if it's too late for me to succeed. What if, what if, what if.. I'm such a big fan of Disney fairy tales, especially Cinderella.. In one of their original soundtracks, there's a song titled "A Dream is a Wish Your Heart Makes". There's one part of that song that really speaks to my heart, it goes like this "Have faith in your dreams and someday your rainbow will come smiling through. No matter how your heart is grieving, If you keep on believing, The dream that you wish will come true." Oh my! how I love that song! When you're reading this, you might say, Ah stop dreaming and just wake up already! The truth is, I'm wide awake right now,but yet I don't worry about the future because I know who holds my future. And I know with all my heart that my dreams will come true. I won't be sharing all of my dreams here, but I will le…
