love what you do

i've been away for so long, too long maybe. there are just too many things happening in my life i felt like losing my breath slowly, but thank God i am enjoying every moment i've spent so far.
yes, for those of you who don't know me personally might not even know what i am currently facing or what i do for living, but here's a clue; it's something that i love to do, and that is all that matters.

ages ago, kay, probably not that long, i used to work at this one industry i have no interest in. it's like i used to live in two different world; work (that i have no heart in but pays the bill) and hobby (something i really enjoy doing but does not pay much). i found it fun and entertaining to have two sort-of separate life that somehow completes each other. so i lived that way for three years until it became hell.

these two world started to clash and lost its priority. i started to question myself, is this really what i want? and then i started to doubt myself, feeling insecure and confused. i no longer feel happy during working hour, then it started to ruin my daily mood. i've always wanted the day to end early and wish that monday was never invented. it was not a good time, but it was a learning process and i am still thankful for that.

long story short, i made a decision. i finally moved to a new job that somewhat i called it, "home". i must say that the pressure was high, it's new, it's challenging, it's hard, but all those negativism turn into something that push me to work harder and harder because i put my heart in it. my treatment was a whole lot different and that is just because i love my job.

you know what, i used to hate when people say "love what you do and you'll be able to conquer the world". bullshit, i thought. 
but now, i must confess that it ain't bullshit. i was in denial, trying to find a good reason to justify my selfish mind. give it a try, do what your heart says and the fire will burn in your heart screaming "i fucking love what i do and i'll give my 200% to finish it" 

i won't force you to quit your job right now just because you said you dislike your job. everything is a learning process, and i believe my 3 years was not wasted. if you are in position where you can see no future in your current workplace, or you feel like everyday is living hell, then go. get out and find your new home. you'll love it there.

dove x sociolla: dove facial wash

on this one beautiful day (despite the very bad weather that keeps changing depending its mood), i had the chance to finally reveal this one friend to keep my face hydrated, moisturized, and of-course clean from jakarta's hell-a-polution!

calling "BRING BACK THE MOISTURE OF YOUR BEAUTIFUL SKIN DURING RAMADHAN" as its theme, Dove and Sociolla Beauty Journal hosted this friendly event with a bunch of pretty ladies who'd love to learn how to keep their faces shine during this holy season.
during the event, Dove and Sociolla also held a break-fasting dinner that tightens the bond of these bloggers.

there was a quick demo that shows how foamy and soft the texture of Dove facial wash is. it is amazing how bouncy, smooth & soft it can be. the foam lathers so well that the bubbles created is soooo tiny that it can cleanse thoroughly. 
oooh dear, i'd love to have it on my skin! 


 well, without any further ado, here comes the product!

so basically, they have 3 Dove varieties that suits different skin conditions. 

1. DOVE inner glow: gentle exfoliating facial cleanser

2. DOVE deep pure: oil control facial cleanser

3. DOVE beauty moisture: conditioning facial cleanser

 and i'd love to claim this as my favourite!
it contains small particles of scrub inside the foam. although it is not too rough, you can see the result afterwards. i can already tell that my dead-skin is removed.
holy moly!

and as i used the sort-of "whitening" solution from Dove, i can somehow tell how my face looks brighter and radiant while my too-tanned skin doesn't match. lol :')
