{ Skincare} : Cure my pimple face!

Pimples! arghh.. I feel stress whenever there pimples on my faces. I don't have any pretty baby face that smooth like a porcelin but I am very worried whenever pimple on my face. From my experience, the pimples on your face because of your eating habit, sleeping habit or sometime product changing. If you always eating the oily food, I believe it will make your face oily unless you know how to eat oily food properly, make sure you not put your oily and dirty finger on your face, wash it first. That is common sense right? Okay, lack of sleep is another common factor of pimples. Don't always sleep late because its will affect your skin. Last one is keep changing the skincare product. Tips, my mum did tell me, whenever you want to change your skincare product, please wait for 2 week before use the new brand, if not its will affect your skin.
Okay, I talk a lot about this, that mean I also facing this issue a lot when I on my teenage year ( still teenage right now..ehhe) until now, I still face it. The main factor is lack of sleep.
So, here is one recommended solution..
This is Skin Food Skincare. This product is recommend by one of my colleagues. The name of the product is Barley & Mandarin Toner. After wash your face with your cleanser, put good amount on square puff and wipe it on your face slowly especially on the area that had a lot of pimples. Be careful! Don't angry to your pimples. Wipe gently for 5 minutes.
 Then after that, use this Barley & Mandarin Spot Gel. Put it on your pimple and leave it. It will feel a bit pain, maybe because of the reaction of the ingredients of this product on your pimple. Don't wipe it..just leave it over night. After use it for few times, the pimples will cured.
 Don't worry when you had pimple or a lots of pimples on your face, take it easy, don't stressed! If you're stress then they will come more. Treat your pimple carefully and don't do the bad habit anymore okay?
Smooth and pimples skin is most important if you want look better.
If you feel frustrated with your face now, and tried sooo many skincare product, but the result is not like you wanted. I recommend this product and hopefully, its will work for you. my pimples face..
This my face after use this for 1 week. Look like less pimple..
What I hate about have pimple is its feel hurt and itchy.. Feel wanna "garu" but I can't...argghh.
How about you?

Thanks for reading.

Love ya,

Frustrated or Grateful

Okay, another post for very late night..
I wanted to share something very important with you guys..
Okay, first I want to share about the thing that make me feel frustrated..
I really like Dove shampoo since the first time I trying it during my high school. I really love the smell during and after I wash my hair using DOVE shampoo.
So, last last month I joined one of the DOVE activity on their Facebook page as below :
Image courtesy :

And good things is I got invited to Dove Empowerment Workshop...

Unfortunately, I couldn't attend it because I got business trip to Vietnam on the date before the event.
 I feel frustrated, I really wanted to go to learn  how to take care of my hair using my favorite shampoo but maybe this is not for me.
 Honestly, this is my first time got this lucky ( its common for others, but this is really uncommon for me.. I never got this kind of invitation in my life).
I missed something that I really love in my life again.. Please comfort me my friends...maybe this is not for me, right?
Dove.. Sorry!! I wanted to join so badly but I got very important things to do.. Please invite me next time ya!

Next is what the things I grateful for is I will visit another country again.
Thanks God for the great opportunity in my life. Even though its for work but at least I see how big is this world, right?
 So, this time, I will go for business trip at Hanoi and Ho Chi Minh, Vietnam.
I never go to Vietnam before so this is my first time, hopefully everything will be okay and I know there God will be whenever I go. I will not afraid of anything because this world is God is the owner and He will look at me whenever I go.

Lastly, lesson from what happen is be grateful in everything that happen in your life. Maybe you couldn't get what you wanted now but God always know the best timing.
 If something bad happen in your life, hang on and don't give up, wake up every morning with energy, dress up and never give up!.Everything is temporary, so hang on!
Before that, I wanted to share my favorite quotes :

So, next time I will share my trip experiences at Vietnam..
Stay tune my friends..

Thanks for reading!

{Fashion Tips} : How to buy dress?

Happy Monday!
Hope you have a great one..haha..
No Monday Blues okay? SMILE!!
Okay, as I already promised on my instagram this afternoon, I post my picture with my Xperia TX as usual,
wearing one gorgeous dress..
Wanna see, how gorgeous it is? Here you go! The full length of the picture..hahha.

Okay, before that, I wanna some tips how to wear this kind of  dress, I mean busy pattern dress .
I know, I know, I am NO expert and always a fashion disaster  but fashion is up to you right?
You can just wear anything the way you like and you should be confident about it even though its fashion disaster..hahahha but don't always be a victim of fashion, learn from the past and get inspired.
So, here the tips..hopefully it will help you next time.
Whenever you buy this kind of dress, make sure you feel comfortable with it first.
Try to move around the fitting room. If the fitting room is very small, just lift you hand, try to "reach" something.
Then, make sure the dress should be able to wear many times in different way.

For someone like me, A shaped body, this dress is not so suitable for me because it will make my body look bigger and the lower part will be more biggerrr..hahhaa, so be careful when choose dress.
This dress is very comfortable for me but one thing is its very fit on lower part. I should DIET!! hahhaha.

DIET?? My face whenever I start thinking to dieting..Hahhahaa...
I'm trying to so shock face,but my lubang hidung is become sooo big.
 Don't try this at public ladies..hahahaa

Lastly, I should lose some weight to fit this dress.. If its really fit and comfortable on my lower part that day, I will just grab it but too bad, I just can take picture of it and next time, when I lose some weight.
Thanks for reading and sorry for many selca. I love to take picture of myself because I just can do that in my life..hahahha

Thanks you very much for reading!

See you next time,
