Hello, gorgeousness! I know I've been absent on this site for quite a while. Honestly, I just don't feel like blogging so I left for a minute and now I'm back, feeling even better. Anyway, as you can read from the title I'm going to share how you can improve your blog even if you're on a tight budget or you just don't want to spend money on your blog. It's your preference but I remember when I first started my blog I don't want to invest any penny on it at all because it seems ridiculous to spend on intangible items. But I'm glad I'm not in that phase anymore. Right now, I would do anything to make my blog feel lively and professional if you will. So, if you're thinking of taking your blog into the next level but don't want to spend money on it, you're in the right place. Hopefully, it will help!


Working on your DA score


I discovered this thing last year. If you don't know what DA is, it stands for Domain Authority and it is some kind of a measurement that tells people how well your blog is performing on search engines. The higher the DA score, the better. I'm really pushing it because I was 10 when I was first started and now I'm at 15. It's not easy to increase your DA score but when you do, lots of brands/ companies will look forward to work with you. I'm aiming to be at 20 at least towards the end of this year hopefully. 

Write more quality contents


The more often you update your blog, the more traffic it will receive. There's no denying on that. Google really gives higher priority to websites with regular content, so this will improve your website's performance on the search engines too. But please don't write rubbish contents for the sake of getting more attention from search engines. I'm just saying. No offense.

Check for broken links


If you don't have the money to spend on your blog, make sure you have the time to check on broken links on your blog. This is super simple. All you have to do is to make sure all of your links work on your blog. Let's say your social media links are broken, you could literally be missing out on connecting with new followers or potential collaborations.

Write enticing titles


You don't have all of that professional, polished-looking blog, but when you have intriguing and attention-grabbing blog titles, I think you don't need a 100 ringgit blog theme to go with that. Titles will help potential readers decide whether they should click around and read more. For instance, I almost go with "How To Improve Your Blog" for this blog post but that sounded so boring and nothing that you can't find on the internet. So I did some brainstorming and came out with "Ways To Improve Your Blog Even If You Have No Money To Spend". I will definitely click on that, for sure.

Working on your own photography


I admit I don't take nice flat lays but I think every time I took some photos of products to go with a blog post, they're pretty decent and eyecatching, and sometimes I do get compliments for my simple photography. You don't need professional equipment for that, at least for me. If you do have a nice, high-quality camera, you do you, boo. But I've been blogging for ages and I don't own a single DSLR camera to take better photographs for my blog. All you need is good lighting, a phone, and great editing apps!

All in all, I can't stress this enough but I personally don't write when I feel like I don't want to write. It's something that I can't push. If it feels drudgery, I'd a hundred percent take a break from writing and come back when I feel better. I want to have fun with blogging. I want to write something I love and actually want to write about. And you should too. Don't write about things for the sake of thinking it will help you grow as a blogger. One can tell when a blogger's heart isn't really into what they're doing.

How do you improve your blog without spending a penny on it?

How do you improve your blog without spending a penny on it?
If you have freckled skin, no worries, it's common. I personally think it's cute and it's mostly associated with natural and fresh skin. Let's not forget how people on the internet wanting to have freckled skin by drawing on faux freckles on their faces. 

But what are (real) freckles? Why do we get freckles? Is it harmful?

Well, freckles are tiny, little brown spots that usually appear on the face. Those little brown specs are what we call melanin. The more time you spend in the sun, the more melanin is produced. Apparently, they are natural and harmless. So why do we get freckles, again? Normally, it's because of sun exposure and, of course, genetics. But we're not here to talk about the genes.



In Malaysia, we have summer all year long. So, technically, we're prone to get freckles and sun spots because our skin is regularly exposed to the sun. As you may know, the sunlight has UV rays and these UV rays are the primary causes of skin damage. Do you know that the UV rays can penetrate deep into your skin layers and it can cause long-term skin damage? Ever heard of skin cancer? Yup. On top of that, if you're constantly staying in a hot environment, meaning to say, if you have a job that needs you to stay in high temperature all round the clock, that will also increase the melanin production since it's more triggered to heat as well.

So what should you do now?

  • Stay out of the sun and do not get exposed to the direct sunlight straight for more than 1 hour.
  • Stay in the shade when the sun is the hottest, between 10 am and 2 pm.
  • Please consider wearing long sleeves. A hat and a pair of sunnies may come in handy too!
  • Your skincare should be a top priority to protect and control your skin.



Useful skincare tips for caring freckled skin (since this is a beauty blog):

Always apply moisturizer after being out in the sun. Call me crazy but it's always this time of the year where the heat is always testing everyone's patience. So, the moisturizer from Hansaegee Nature is the perfect fit for you. The Aqua Whitening Cream moisturizer can give you a cooling sensation after every application. It penetrates deep into skin layers so your skin stays cool and moisturized even in high-temperature situations. Apart from that, the Aqua Whitening Cream moisturizer also has a high percentage of Niacinamide (also known as Vitamin B3) to help diminish dullness, enlarged pores, improve uneven skin tone, and strengthen a weakened surface. If you happen to have freckles, this moisturizer is great to control the brown specs to turn even darker.


The texture turns into water droplets

Wear sunscreen every day. Even if you're at home. Wear sunscreen with UVA and UVB protection and make sure it has an SPF of 30 or higher. The Gold Nano CC Cream from Hansaegee Nature is my current favorite because it acts as a sunscreen to me since it has SPF of 50+ PA+++ to protect my face from UVA and UVB radiation. I know it's a CC cream, and not really a sunscreen but this product closely resembles a physical sunscreen. It has at least 5 UV filters that are working together to shield the skin from harmful UV rays. It's perfect for one of those days that you don't feel like putting on heavy makeup. I appreciate Hansaegee Nature for formulating this CC cream very light in texture, not oily and sticky, and most importantly comfortable on the skin.





Other than its skincare benefits, it's great for makeup base too which resulting in more pigmented swatches

Undoubtedly lightweight in texture

Always opt for good skincare ingredients. Freckled skin deserves the best care. You should look for skincare that uses no parabens, alcohol, and sulfate. The moisturizer and CC cream from Hansaegee Nature use none of that, which I'm grateful for. Your skin can't be mad for no apparent reason because the ingredients they use in their skincare is the absolute best.



Having to say that, freckles are rarely treated. Freckles prevention is much more effective than freckles removal. That is why the main prevention is aimed at sun protection. If you're one that wants to get rid of your freckles but doesn't take your skincare seriously, you will end up with more freckles. It won't budge with some 'magic cream' you found on the internet that claims to get rid of it. Even if it is true, though, they will come back.

Freckles are beautiful and what makes one so unique  learn how to make the most out of it by just following simple skincare tips I've given you. Be particular when it comes to your skin. Wear your moisturizer 2 times a day (morning and night) and reapply your SPF at least every 3 hours. Be safe and stay out of the sun too long to lessen the melanin production so the skin may produce fewer freckles.

Hello, gorgeousness! I kind of went back and forth on whether I wanted to do this type of quarantine haul or not because I'm well aware of the current situation where everything is uncertain now and some people are struggling out there with no job etc. But I thought this would just be a fun little entertainment for you and of course, myself. Yes, our lives have changed but I think sometimes people just need to feel like life is a little bit more normal. We're gonna move past this. So yeah, I hope you find this entertaining even though most of them are like makeup stuff.

Things I Bought During Quarantine | Drugstore Edition

I have the Maybelline City Mini Palette in 5th Avenue Sunset | RM49.90. The formula of this eyeshadow palette is a bit dry but it blends like a dream. Honestly, if you swatch it on the back of your hand, you wouldn't be impressed but wait until you really put it on your eyelids. It's easy to blend, beginner-friendly, pigmented, and stays put for a long time. With that being said, I got the Essence I Love Stage Eyeshadow Base | RM14.90. I usually use concealer as my base but I guess there's no harm trying out a different thing. So far, I'm loving this eyeshadow base. The texture resembles a very lightweight concealer but still manages to hide the veins on my eyelids and it intensifies every color I put on my lids. The last thing for the eyes, I have the IN2IT Sparkling Eyeshadow in Rose Gold | RM19.90. It's a liquid eyeshadow that dries down like an actual eyeshadow. I'm still waiting for my Pixy Fairy Lights liquid eyeshadows to arrive. I don't know why it's taking so long so I can't help myself and buy from the drugstore. To be honest, the color payoff is actually stunning, it's absolutely sparkly and pigmented. Surprisingly easy to use and doesn't crease at all!

Next up, I bought the Peripera Ink Airy Velvet in Hotspot Red | RM45. This is my first purchase from Peripera and I have never experienced a lip lacquer that is so freaking lightweight and so velvety! It feels like I put on nothing on my lips but the velvetiness is there. So comfortable and I want to buy a bunch of them in the future. Klavuu Nourishing Care Lip Sleeping Pack | RM47 has recently become my favorite lip care. I would say if you been wanting to try the infamous Laneige lip sleeping mask, give this one a try instead. It's cheaper, smells so good and it gives you the plumped lips effect every time. Laneige who?

Things I Bought During Quarantine | Drugstore Edition

I have two powders to talk about; first up is the Catrice Cosmetics Glow Illusion Loose Powder | RM37.40. If you're looking for a loose powder that's not flat matte and kind of gives you a glowy effect, you might want to try this one. It's absolutely beautiful and honestly giving me the healthy, glowy, radiant skin effect, y'know what I mean? On the flip side, I also recently tried a new loose powder from IN2IT. It's called the Blur & Matte Loose Powder | RM27.90. It is what the name suggests, blurring and matte. It's pore minimizing, really refined, and soft texture. Powders from IN2IT have been amazing and my previous loose powder from the same brand still is my favorite.

Onto skincare; a newer one to me was the MIACARE Derma Angel Acne Patch | RM11.20. I was a forever-consumer of the Watsons acne patch but I wanted to try from other brands this time. Thankfully I tried this one from MIACARE. It's actually the best and worked so well. It's so thin that people barely even realize I have an acne patch on. 

I also tried new micellar water. It's the L'oreal Micellar Water 3-in-1 Refreshing | RM35.60. Apparently amazing and one of the best alcohol-free micellar water at the drugstore. It removes my eye makeup in one swipe and I like it how it left my skin at the most comfortable state after removing my makeup. It also doesn't sting my eyes and doesn't break me out. Last but not least for the skincare portion of this haul, I bought the Dr. Morita Nanopeptide Whitening Essence Facial Mask | RM25.00. It's perfect for the current hot season in Malaysia. I have been exposed to the sun quite often because I'm working during this global pandemic as well so I thought this mask would be fitting for me. Dr. Morita facial masks never fail me and I absolutely love what they have put into their products in terms of ingredients. Amazing work. 

Do you manage to get anything online during the quarantine?

Do you manage to get anything online during the quarantine?

Hello, gorgeousness! Before anything else, I would like to say, Eid Mubarak to Muslims all around the world. It's a different kind of Eid but definitely meaningful to some. Stay in, stay safe, and don't forget to always wash your hands.

I haven't been on my blog that much. I haven't been active because I have been so busy. It's a seasonal thing where every Ramadhan and pre-Eid, retails got so busy and things went crazy. I had to throw a tantrum every few hours because a thing or two didn't go my way. I know it's not the best way to address things but I just wanted to thank my colleagues for putting up with me. ANYWAY, this is not why we're here today. We're here for my Vaseline lash update that I have been promising you guys in this post. So I'm just gonna put some photos first and we will talk later.




I know what you're thinking. There's not much of a difference, right? Right. But I'm the lab rats. I know what went down and from what I can see, my eyelashes did grow a little and become a bit thicker. Not much on the longer department but definitely thicker and stronger. Let's say before this I only have 10 lashes but now I have 30. 

Sure, there's no evidence that Vaseline can encourage eyelashes growth. There's a hormone-like substance that prompts our body to increase hair growth. Naturally. So I know for a fact that Vaseline won't elongate and thicken eyelashes. On that note, all I have been doing for this Vaseline eyelash growth diary is 1) never pluck my eyelashes if my eyes get itchy; 2) be super careful and gentle while removing my mascara, and 3) just let them grow. I guess from what I have done for this lashes journey, my lashes did grow naturally and for me not to pluck and just keep my hands out of my eyelashes made it more successful? 

I'm not so sure, you guys. But I have been loving this "new" eyelashes. When I coat them with mascara, ugh! The feels! I can't say much actually because it only took me over a month to do all of this. If it's longer than that, maybe we can come up with better results? So yeah. I personally don't think Vaseline played a big part in this eyelash growth journey. It's actually my actions that made my eyelashes grow.

If you ask me now, does Vaseline help eyelashes grow? I would personally say whilst Vaseline is great for many things, encouraging growth and the length in eyelashes is maybe not one of them. If you really want to grow your eyelashes with home remedies, you can try castor oil. Maybe that will be our next experiment. Who knows? One more thing, will I still be putting on Vaseline on my lashes? The answer is yes because I want to get rid of this current Vaseline I'm using. After all, it's so old already. 

That's all for today! Be seeing you xx

My (Vaseline) Eyelash Growth Update

Have you tried this 'Vaseline lash' thing? What are your thoughts?
Hello, gorgeousness! We're kicking it old-school again in today's post. We're going to talk about products I've used up and would I buy them again in the future? Oh, you guys know the drill. I want to cut it short in today's post, not because I have so much stuff to talk about but maybe I have a lot to say about a certain product. So, let's dive in.


Simple Kind To Skin Soothing Toner - Major love!

I'm going to breeze through the product that you see all the time which is this very toner. Yes, I went through another Simple toner. I'm kinda obsessed with it. My skin loves it so much and it's cheap and easy to get. No complaint. At all.

Garnier Micellar Cleansing water - An okay product

I'm not a fan, I would say. I'm pleased that it contains no alcohol, though to be honest, after finishing this bottle, I don't think I will repurchase. I've found another micellar water that works better and I will talk about it soon! 

Simple Kind To Skin Micellar Cleansing Water - Me no likey

This is probably the worst micellar water I've ever tried. If you're a full coverage all day err day kinda person like me, this is not strong enough to remove your makeup. It usually took me 4-5 cotton pads to thoroughly get all the makeup off. That's a lot, sis. However, I like how it left my skin at the most comfortable state after removing my makeup. There weren't any tightness and dryness. I guess when I'm out and about and wear tons of makeup, this is not my first choice to remove my makeup at the end of the day.


Good Virtues Co. Calm & Compose Purifying Makeup Remover - No love

Another makeup remover that I will not buy again. It stings so bad when the liquid got into my eyes! It's also highly fragranced. I don't like it. And it has the same case as the Simple micellar water where it didn't work effectively if you're using full coverage and waterproof makeup.

SK-II Radical New Age Power Essence - LOVE, LOVE, LOVE!

This was given to me by a person that I no longer talk with. Why am I telling you all of a sudden? Oh my goodness, TMI. Anyway, I love this essence so much. It gives me a healthy-looking glow every time. Dare I say, my face felt a lot firmer and flawless and bouncy. This product is definitely a worthwhile investment but I can't see myself purchasing this again and again. Maybe one day if I have all the money in the world, I will buy this again and no one can stop me.

The Body Shop Japanese Cherry Blossom Strawberry Kiss Eau De Toilette - Yes love

I love the scent of this. It's so fruity, fresh, and sweet all at the same time. It's infused with Japanese cherry blossoms, that's why you're getting a bit of floral scent here and there. Top notes are strawberries, peonies, and amber. Love it! And can we talk about the bottle for a second? It's so pretty! I will definitely buy it again. I love it when my room smells like this baby.

Silkygirl MLBB Lip Tint - Repurchased!

I'm a sucker for lip tints. As you're reading this, I'm still waiting for my other lip tint to arrive in front of my doorstep. Why does it take so long? Anyway, this lip tint is just so nice, light and airy. It still has a nice and even residue on the lips after a meal. I like it, so I purchase another one in a different shade.


Japanese Cherry Blossom Strawberry Kiss Body Cream - It's alright

It's not the worst but I'm not a fan. I like the scent, of course, it's fruity and sweet. It's pretty much like any other body creams/ lotions I've tried before. I like the texture and the size of it is perfect to keep in your handbag.

Essence Matt Touch Blush - Mi love!

I love the product but the packaging is not the best. Maybe that's the reason why it's so inexpensive. But that doesn't mean it didn't work. It's absolutely worked, beautifully. The color is pigmented but controllable and I like it when I'm able to control the pigmentation. 

Essence All About Matt Fixing Powder - Not a bad product but...

I've repurchased this quite a few time and I like it as a finishing and fixing powder. After some time, I realized I'm actually fine without it. It's not a bad product but it didn't do much. So what's the point of repurchasing? That's why I stopped buying it. It's nice to have but I'm completely fine without it incorporating in my makeup routine. 

Maybelline Fit Me! Concealer - A staple

Another product that you get to see all the time. I've repurchased this so many times already. It works so well and recently I discovered that it works amazing as an eyeshadow primer too! No need to buy eyeshadow primer since my Fit Me concealer already took the job.

Have you tried any of these products? What are your thoughts?

Beauty Product Empties #7

Hello, gorgeousness! We're kicking it old-school again in today's post. We're going to talk about products I've used up and would I buy them again in the future? Oh, you guys know the drill. I want to cut it short in today's post, not because I have so much stuff to talk about but maybe I have a lot to say about a certain product. So, let's dive in.


Simple Kind To Skin Soothing Toner - Major love!

Hello, gorgeousness! Let's be real, I can't be the only person who has ever seen tips and tricks of how you can grow your lashes with Vaseline. Story of my life, I have the saddest, thinnest and sparse lashes growing up. They're barely visible to the human eye. Maybe that's due to my bad habit - I love to pluck my eyelashes every day and I think I've plucked out too many. And with only 10 lashes, to begin with, I made it worse.

It's apparently dangerous, folks. Plucking out too many eyelashes may cause your eyes serious injuries and just overall hygiene. If you have the same habit like me, please stop doing it. I've stopped plucking my lashes many moons ago although sometimes I still do it unconsciously. It's a hard habit to break. But I've stopped completely, I promise. I don't want to damage my lashes no more.

So there goes me googling tips and tricks on how to make your lashes grow longer and thicker.

I have seen a gazillion tips and tricks using Vaseline to grow your lashes. Imagine how intrigued I am. I'm just rooting for Vaseline to be awesome and save me a few bucks. With that being said, I also dug deeper just to see if it really works and what are the pros and cons. Is it just a myth or is there a science behind it?

Turns out, Vaseline can help condition your lashes and moisturize them, but Vaseline cannot grow your eyelashes. The sad truth, I know. Using Vaseline to help your lashes grow longer and thicker is a myth. It's hard for me to believe because I really want it to work. It's fast and easy.

But hold your horses.

Although it's just a myth, I'm going to show you if it really works or the other way around. Yes, I'm going to be one of those lab rats. I've been putting Vaseline on my lashes for a week now and I decided to track my progress in the hopes of maybe it does work. I will be placing pictures as evidence and you will be able to see for yourself. If it works, great. If it doesn't, I don't lose anything. So yeah, I will be documenting my eyelash growth diary(?) or something on my blog but allow me some time to do it for let's say 3 weeks and by the end of it, we will see if it does work.

I'm excited and I hope you guys are excited too!

Sunplay Skin Aqua UV Brightening Moisture Gel SPF50 PA++

Hello, gorgeousness! It took me a long time to purchase a new sunscreen other than my tried and trusted sunscreen. I'm a long term user of that Wardah sunscreen and what drove me to buy a different sunscreen this time around? Because I've been told by the SA that there's a chance the Wardah sunscreen is going to be out of stock for several months. Several months. My skin's going to act up and mess with me. It sucks. So I gave in and bought another one as an alternative but I can't find any sunscreen that's cheaper than my Wardah sunscreen. That's even worse. But we gotta do what we gotta do, sis.

Sunplay Skin Aqua UV Brightening Moisture Gel sunscreen retails at about RM30 for 80ml of product, maybe 2-3 ringgit cheaper or pricier depending on where you get them. I think the price point is fair with what I'm getting. It's affordable to a certain extent.

Sunplay Skin Aqua UV Brightening Moisture Gel SPF50 PA++

First things first, packaging. It comes in a pink squeezable plastic bottle with a screwed nozzle. The design is pretty sleek and chic. I like it and I like the color but I personally don't like 1) the nozzle because it can be messy; 2) the cap because for some reason I tend to misplace screwed caps like this but let's hope not.

It has a solid white color, just like any other sunscreen. The consistency is gel-like and quite runny. It's safe to say that it's lightweight too. I like that it's not too greasy, I would say it has a satin matte finish and absorbs quite fast on my skin. Oh, and it leaves minimal to almost no white cast as well. I think that's where I'm sold.

Sunplay Skin Aqua UV Brightening Moisture Gel SPF50 PA++Sunplay Skin Aqua UV Brightening Moisture Gel SPF50 PA++

This sunscreen doesn't break me out and for that fact, I thank the Lord. I'm so happy because my skin can be tricky and sensitive. It reacts almost immediately to whatever I put on my skin. Another thing is worth mentioning here is that this sunscreen is so hydrating and moisturizing and it's also alcohol-free. Another plus point in my eyes! Overall, it's such a comfortable sunscreen to wear every day. It looks great under makeup and without makeup. My skin feels super protected hence their Solarex-3 technology.

What I like about it:

  • doesn't leave a noticeable white cast on my medium skin
  • alcohol-free
  • doesn't break me out
  • hydrating gel-like formula
  • lightweight & not greasy
  • contains Arbutin
  • value for money

What I don't like about it:

  • the nozzle & the cap
  • and I think that's it

Sunplay Skin Aqua UV Brightening Moisture Gel SPF50 PA++

I think you can already tell I'm in love with this sunscreen. I have been using it every day for a week now. I know that's not a long period of time but so far so good. I'm loving it. Maybe a little bit more than the Wardah sunscreen. Anyway, I hope you enjoy this quick little review of my current (possibly) favorite sunscreen. Check it out if you're in need of a new sunscreen.
