my new flat lay <3

Hello, everyone~

Lots of people keep asking me, "  How you take care of your skin? ".

Truthfully, my skin is not flawless at all. If you want to know what type of products that I used for my skin, you can read here in my previous post.

As my age are getting older, ( I'm 31 years old this year - #facethefactnadia ) and hormone keeps on fluctuating. I also facing the skin break out whereby the acne will come out like crazy.

When I was around the age of 25 - 29 years old. I don't have an acne problem at all. My sister always said that I am so lucky to have a clean and flawless skin. Now, not anymore. * sob sob *

Last two months if I'm not mistaken, I've tried one berry supplements and suddenly my skin breaks out badly. 

It makes my sister and my husband keep on asking me, what happens to my skin. At that time, I am totally stressed out and I just don't know what to do.

So, I've decided to stop that supplements and search for a natural remedy for my skin. 

Thank God, my Mum reminded me that Aloe Vera is the best remedy for Acne and Scars.

I am lucky enough that, my Mum has the beautiful garden with a lot of aloe vera. Aloe Vera is easy to plant.

from My Mum's garden

You want to know more how good Aloe Vera for our skin, you can read here.  

There are also good benefits by drinking Aloe Vera, you can read the articles here.


Due to my Mum plant lots of Aloe Vera in her garden. What I usually do when I'm facing a skin break out is I just pluck it around 5 - 10 pieces. 

from My Mum's garden

Then, I stored it in the refrigerator, so that the aloe vera always cool.

When I need to apply it to my skin, I will take one-piece and peel of the aloe vera skin. What I need is only the white gel inside it.

The aloe vera 

Then, take the white gel and apply it on my skin as a mask. 

Take the gel inside it 

I will leave it for 10 - 15 mins until the aloe gel dry. Once it dry, wash your face. You will feel that your skin fresh and moisturize.

Repeat using it twice or 3 times per week. But, I usually apply it every night before I sleep.

apply the gel on the skin like I did - excuse my panda eyes

After using it several times, Insyaallah you will see your scars and acne vanish slowly. Importantly, you must apply it consistently to get the best result.

after I wash the aloe gel - see told ya, my skin not flawless at all. Excuse my panda eyes and baby at the back hihi


If you don't have aloe vera plant at home . You can buy the aloe vera gel from any pharmacy or beauty shop. You can even buy it online from Lazada, 11Street, Shoppee and more.

Even now, the Aloe Vera mask is available as well for you to use easily daily. If you want to feel fresh all day long, you can use the Aloe vera mist.

That's all from me for now. Happy trying, all. 

Have a nice day and thank you for reading.

I miss this scenery - picture from my Paris trip back in 2014
Hello, everyone.

I'm back after a month. Oh, I really miss my blog and all of you. 

For the first post of my comeback, I love to share a guest post by Suzy Walsh from . 

As we know, fall/autumn is the beautiful month after spring. Whoever loves fashion/OOTD, fall/autumn is the best time for you to dress up and take good pictures with the beautiful scenery.

So, let's read what Suzy thought about the iconic trends of fall 2017.
Fall is around the corner, and it’s time rewind and look back at the Fall 2017 collections, which had some amazing ideas. In the last few years, designers have not restrained themselves from trying new ideas for the fall, and quite expectedly, the trends were anything but predictable. In this post, we will talk of the best fall 2017 trends and some of the ideas that you can try this year without a second thought.


Fringe is here to stay:
It has been a fringe overload in the last few seasons and going by the fall collections, the trend is not going anywhere. Fringe-inspired outfits were all over the ramp, and these are designed to entice the onlookers. Some of the best dresses
were spotted at Prabal Gurung, Michael Kors, and Milly. If you are fond of the style, do make sure to tone down the accessories, because this is a trend that looks flattering without a lot of additional elements. Go ahead and rule the party nights! 

Floral is the way: Floral for fall is probably not an innovative idea, but for this season, you will see a lot of dark floral elements. From Prabal Gurung to Erdem and Oscar de la Renta, everyone seemed to be in love with flowers, except that the interpretations were quite different, to say the least. You can create some really fun outfits by turning your solid coloured dresses into a DIY project. Check the leading designers, and you will have enough ideas. If you are choosing one of the ready-to-wear items, go for the darker shades that have a hint of the fall.

Mess it up/Mix and Match
 Mess it up: A mix of colours, often in a random selection, was seen in a number of collections for the fall. This is one of the many ways of saying ‘I don’t care’, and honestly, you don’t even need guidelines with this one. Designers used many contrasting shades, pieces and layering items to create looks that are anything but uniform. Considering that fall has been essentially a dark season in fashion, this is more like a welcome change. Need a few ideas; you should check the collections of Christopher Kane and Monse among others. 

Off shoulder
One shoulder is back: After many seasons of just watching cold shoulders, the one-shoulder trend is back, and it works big time. This is a trend that’s meant for the lady who likes to rule. Trendy, stylish and utterly flattering, you just those toned arms to get the look right. As for ideas, check the collections of Jason Wu, Dion Lee and Zimmermann. 

Hope you liked the post and found this useful. For more on style and fashion, follow this blog, and I shall see the awesome readers soon in another post in the future. Till then, keep it easy and stylish because you are the best you can be!

What do you think about all the trends? For me, since the off shoulder is trending here in Malaysia. I would love to style up the off shoulder dress or tops with any T-shirt underneath or long sleeve inner. Then, as for the outerwear, I definitely will wear the trench coat or long straight coat.

How about you? Which trends you will be choosing from?

Thank you for reading and have a nice day.

Hello October~  How are you doing, everyone?

I'm back. Do you miss me or not? Hahaha. =p

I guess it's been a month I'm not updating anything on my blog. #bloggingslumpproblem #asusualforme

Maybe some of you think that this post already outdated because Duck Cosmetics was launched last month on 2nd of September 2017. 

But, #thisentryalreadyinmydraftforamonth. So, I've decided to do some story and review about this new local makeup product in town after I've bought one of their product. #kenalahgunabarubolehreview 

Aha~ who doesn't know about Duck group. One of most powerful scarf brand locally. Now, Duck is taking one step further in a beauty industry.

From fashion to beauty. How successful we can see Duck has grown in this industry.

For all Duck fans or followers, they will be really anticipated toward Duck cosmetics. Before the launched of the Duck cosmetics, lots of teasers and guessing going around. Then, tadaaa~ the official Duck cosmetics was launched on 2nd of September 2017 in Pavilion.

Truthfully, I'm one of Duck scarves buyer and I totally satisfied with most of the Duck scarves material. #Ivebeenducked

So, when Duck launched the cosmetics, even though I'm not a makeup person. But, I really wanted to see how good are Duck cosmetics will be after their success in producing a beautiful and great quality of scarves. 

Without a further ado, let see the products of Duck cosmetics have launched.


Duck cosmetics consists of :
  • #nofilter Makeup remover - Brightening, Hydrating, and Refreshing ( RM 100 )

This one quite interesting because the makeup remover not only as a makeup remover solely, but it can be a moisturizer and toner at the same time. Whoever, a lazy bunch just like me, to remove a makeup and to put on moisturizer and toner afterwards, this one quite interesting.

  • Lipstickwitu Lipsticks - Bubbly Carol, Joyful Julie, Pinky Phoebe, Ravinishing Janice , Earthy Rachel, Zesty Amy and Dreamy Nora ( RM 70 )

For this one, I can say I like the packaging style which is magnetic. So, you won't lose the lipstick cover. Seriously, I like the lipstick texture also because it is really smooth. 

From the range of the colours, I would go for Bubbly Carol and Dreamy Nora because I'm a natural/nude look kinda person. But, sadly. When I went to the Duck Cosmetics store. The Bubbly Carol already sold out.

And, end of September 2017. Duck released three new colours which are Earthy Rachel, Zesty Amy and Dreamy Nora. I've bought Dreamy Nora. I love the colour even though it is not quite nude 100% but the colour makes my face looks more cheerful.

  • Glossip Girl Lip gloss - Basic Blair, Classy Serena, Lady Eleanor, Sincerely Cece, Vibrant Georgina, Iconic Jenny and Deep Dorota ( RM 60 )

I love the name because it inspired from Gossip Girl TV show whereby I am a big fan of it.  #iloveblair #iloveherfashionandoutfit

So, from Duck lip gloss, I definitely will choose either Basic Blair or Classy Serena. But, after I've tried it at the store. I think the lip gloss just so-so. So, I won't buy it.

Same as lipstickwitu, Duck released three new colours for lip gloss as well. The colours are Vibrant Georgina, Iconic Jenny and Deep Dorota.

  • Matte Decisions Liquid Lipsticks - Dazzling Sookie, Minimally Tracy, and Snazzy Stella ( RM 75 )

Hmmm~ I'm not a matte lipstick fan. But, there are lots of beautiful colours from these matte lipsticks Seriously, I like Minimally Tracy colour. But, when I try it out, I'm not quite like it because you need to pull it out carefully to avoid the lipstick messing up on the top of the cover. The other reason that I won't buy because I think the texture dry too fast and I'm not a matte lipsticks fan either. =)

  • Matte Decision Liquid Lipsticks ( Metallic ) - Fearless Lane and Zealous Zoey ( RM 75 )
This one still under Matte range lipstick. But, if you want to look more bold and outstanding. This metallic colours really suits that kind of look.

  • All-Eye-Ask Eyeshadow  - Nude and Smokey ( RM 135 )

Like I said before, I'm not a makeup person. So, I'm not quite using eyeshadow. But, from these two palettes of eyeshadow. I definitely will go for nude.

But, for me. You don't need to get both of the palettes as well because of the colour tone for both palettes quite similar but not same. Still, up to you if you want to buy both . =D


What I like about Duck cosmetics after visited the store?


Obviously, I like the minimal style of the Duck cosmetics store, whereby they play only with purple and white colour. After all, that was The Duck group corporate colour, right? hihihi.

The layout of the store also quite simple and nice. I love it!!!

Like other beauty or makeup store, you can try and play around with the makeup before you make a decision which one to buy, right? And, in Duck cosmetics store they have that too. Yeay!!!


After tryout all the lipsticks range at the store. The Bubbly Carol colour was my choice because I really like a nude or natural colour. But, it is already sold out.

After they released the new colours, I've bought the Dreamy Nora colour.  So yeah, for me the texture of this lipstick not so bad.

I really wanted to buy the #nofilter makeup remover but the price is quite expensive for me.

I love this part. I wish I could have that bath tub for my own home <3


So, let's talk about the price range of Duck cosmetics. Truthfully, the price is quite expensive just like some of the makeup brands that we can find in Sephora or other beauty shops.

I know there are lots of criticizes or negative comments about the price because it is just a local brand.

But, we should just think about Duck vision after all. It is not easy to produce one product from scratch.  And, they are not competing only with local brands. They are competing with other international brands as well.

So, if the quality of the brand is really impressive. We shouldn't be blabbing so much. If they are a good brand. Then, they can make our country proud if they go international ( just like Duck scarves). After all, we should support our #localbrand #prayfortheirbest.

If you think that the price is totally ridiculous. You can choose not to buy it. All the decisions are up to you. I also not buying all of it because of #imnotamakeupdiehardfan #ialsothinkthepricequiteexpensive . Hahaha

But, I guess if you are a die-hard fan of Duck group, there will be no issue regarding the price because whatever happens. You still want to get it. Hahaha. Right? or Not?

There you go, let's stop talking about the price. okay? #qualityismostimportant 

Coming soon.... very soon...soon


I want this robe <3

Well, like I said before, I'm a person who rarely wears lipstick. Usually, I'll put only lip balm whenever I'm going out. But, I really like blusher because I love to see a pink cheek. hihi.

Therefore, I hope Duck Cosmetics would come out with their own lip balm and blusher in future.

Really looking forward for it. <3

Or maybe one day, Duck will come out with facial foam, moisturizer, toner, body soap, scrub and lots more. Who knows right? #alwaysprayfortheirbest

I heard they will come out with hair product later. Let's us wait patiently.

So, have you buy and try out the Duck cosmetics? If yes, what do you think about it?

Lastly, congratulations and well-done Duck group and Vivy Yusof for this new product.

Duck for life !!! <3

Thank you for reading, everyone. <3

Hello, everyone~

Have you noticed my new blog face?  What do you think? It is nice? Clean? For me, I LOVE IT!!<3

I've decided to change my blog template because I think the way my blog looks already dull. No hype anymore. Hahaha.
The slider on my page

My most favorite place to get a beautiful blog template always from Etsy. Yes. Etsy has lots of beautiful templates but it's not free. You have to buy it. You can get various of templates with an affordable price - but you have to choose wisely as well. =)

My main menu page, under the slider. I love it!!! <3

On Etsy, you will see a lot of shops selling blogger templates. But, the most favorite shop that I truly like is " Templates by Kate ( before known as 11th March Designs) ". 


For me, I really like Grid style layout because it looks simple and neat. And, Kate shop sells a lot of Grid style templates.

Totally a bonus to catch me to buy a template from her shop. hihihi <3

As beautiful as her name, Kate is the best, helpful and kind-hearted shop owner I've ever dealt with. 

I'm not telling other shop owner is bad. But, I already have an experienced with another shop owner once. It's just the shop owner of my previous template before not quite helpful like Kate. 

For me, I really need someone who really helped to install and setup the template from A to Z because I really bad in coding. And, I also need the owner shop who can fulfill all my request impressively. =D

Actually, this was not my first time I've bought templates from Kate. I've bought and dealt with her before and I like working with her. <3

Did I write "SALE"? ... Yes!!!  You read it right. Kate shop always having a sale. So, follow her shop now on Etsy.

Oh, by the way, Kate shop is having a sale right now until 12 September 2017. So, if you had an intention to change your template, hurry, visit TemplatesbyKate shop on Etsy. >>> click here 

There you go, the reasons that I shared about my favorite blogger template shop on Etsy.

What about you? Do you ever have an experienced buying a blog template from Etsy? Which shop are your favorite one? 

Thank you for reading, all. <3

Hello, everyone~

It's been a while I didn't do any book review. This book, I've done reading it last month around July.

Now, I've decided to do the review after being requested by my dear blogger friend +Nurul Rasya . <3

Author: Najwa Zebian
Page: 198 pages
Published: 16 January 2016
Genre: Self-Help

Mind Platter contains around 198 - 200-page entries as reflections on different topics that we encounter in our everyday lives: love, friendship, hurt, inspiration, respect, wholeheartedness, motivation, integrity, honesty and more.

Honestly, this was the best motivational, inspiration and reflection book I've ever read. Most of the topics and quotes are much related with our daily life and what we are facing in our lives.

I like Najwa writing because the topics been writing truly from the heart. I can feel what Najwa been feeling and facing because there some topics related to me as well.

All the good and bad things happened in life been stated in the book and how we should encounter it.

It also shares topics, how we tend to think or become a negative person to ourself and other people most of the time. The book also shares, how we could change something negativity mind turning to positivity. How we could give a good value to the society and people around us.

Seriously, even though I've done reading it. Whenever I need a motivational quote or reflection topics I always look back to this book.

Below are some of the excerpt from Zebian, Najwa. “Mind Platter.” 

Stay True to Yourself               
Don't worry about what people think of you or about the way they try to make you feel. If people want to see you as a good person, they will. If people want to see you as a bad person, absolutely nothing you do will stop them. Ironically, the more you try to show them your good intentions, the more reason you give them to knock you down. Keep your head up high and be confident in what you do. Be confident in your intentions and keep your eyes ahead instead of wasting your time on those who want to drag you back. Because you can't change people's views, you have to believe that true change for yourself comes from within you, not from anyone else”

You can draw a path for your life and have all of your goals set. You can change yourself as much as possible and change things around you just to reach those goals. Here’s the catch. Never underestimate the power of fate. It can knock down the highest of goals that seem guaranteed in your life. Plan, yes, and decide, yes, but be prepared for plans not to work. If they don’t work despite your hardest efforts, there must be a reason. You may not be able to see the reason at the time, but you will one day, maybe even years later. Did your efforts go to waste? If you don’t learn from them, then yes, they did go to waste. Even after changing yourself and your surroundings for the sake of reaching that one goal, you may realize that it was waiting for you at the place where you started, when you were the true you who did not need to change or be changed. Change for yourself, not just for a goal”

“The Way They Treat You              
Have you ever been told to treat people the way they treat you? Well, don't do that. Treat them better than they treat you. If a person's bad action makes you do the same, how can you say that you are any better? If a person discourages you from doing your own good, encourage him or her to do what's for his or her own good. Remember, you don't have to listen to them, but you also don't have to answer them back in their own tone. If a person disrespects you, react to him or her with respect. Learn from the best. Don't compare yourself by looking down. Always look up to those who struggled yet still inspired their worst enemies.”

“Forgive and Forget              
It amazes me how we always remember how others have wronged us, but we forget how we've wronged others. We always tell ourselves to forgive but never forget. Here is my philosophy: if you want others to forgive you for what you have done wrong to them, then you should do the same. Some people need a second chance. Some people need to forgive themselves for wronging themselves and others. You can be in either situation. We need to help others and ourselves by forgiving others and, yes, by forgetting the actions that they've done as individuals. When you say, never forget, it shouldn't mean that you will never forget the person doing the mistake but that you will never forget the mistake that was done so that you will remember how it made you feel and never do it to someone else. We are all humans. We all make mistakes. Whether we are courageous and sincere enough to admit that is a different story. If you want a second chance at being the person that you want to be, then give that chance to others. Forgive people, and forget that they have made certain mistakes[…]”

“Let Go              
They say that, at some point, you just learn to let go. I must disagree. If it just takes one moment to let go, then you never really held on tightly enough. To a dream. To a goal. To a place. To a person. To anything. I believe that you let go little by little. You let go a little, then hold back on, but with a little less force until you fully release yourself. And the tighter you hold on, the more force you let go with. The deeper you dive, the higher you'll fly. The closer you get, the further you'll pull away. The weaker you feel, the stronger you'll become. So do not be ashamed of your weaknesses. We all have them. You must learn to be kind to yourself. You must learn to understand yourself. You must believe in yourself. Never think that you are a bad person. Differentiate between your self-worth and your actions. To say that you are bad is different than saying that you made a mistake. You can't fix yourself, but you can fix a mistake. And remember, not one person on this earth is perfect. We all[…]”

If you really need a motivation and reflection book that been written nicely and simple, I really recommend you to read this book.

Rating: 5/5

Thank you for reading.

Hello, everyone~

Yes, we are still in holiday mood. One more day left before we back to work. Noooo~ I need more holiday. Everyone needs more holiday too right? Hihihi...

Aha~ do you even curious why the title " WALL OF ' FAME' " ?. Hihihi... actually I just don't know what title it should be. But, because this post will be related to the wall, so, that is why this wall of fame title come out from my head. =p

If you Google the meaning WALL OF ' FAME', it will be something about a wall that posted a lot of achievements such as award or certificate.

But, in my own context of " WALL OF ' FAME' " I'm referring to a beautiful, unique, rare wall that been use for OOTD or Instagram picture. hahaha.

So, I guess this post can be categorize under personal or photography. =p

Okay, I will ask you a question. Are you a person who loves or obsessed with the beautiful wall for the sake of photography, Instagram or OOTD? 

If yes, then you are in the same group as me. Give me high 5 !! Hihihi...

Here the story goes. For this year Hari Raya Aidil Adha I'll be celebrated at my husband side. Meaning, I won't be travel outside Klang Valley because my husband grandmother house is in Klang.

Then, I've received an email there is MPH Bookstores Exhibition held at Setia City Convention Centre. If you already follow me quite a while. You must know that I'm a book lover as well. So, went to the exhibition is a must. Hahaha.

I've been to Setia City Mall but never been to Setia City Convention Centre before. Once, arrived at the exhibition hall. I saw this beautiful wall just nice if I wanted to share a picture on my Instagram account.

Oh, I really particular about my Instagram timeline by arranging the pictures nicely. Actually, my timeline can't be consider as beautiful yet. But, I do learn a little bit from other famous Instagrammers who have beautiful pictures on their Instagram timeline. 

Before this, I've learned from one of my Instagram friend, name Irinahanim. Her Instagram timeline more to minimal pictures. Minimal pictures meaning a picture with a beautiful, unique and rare background or wall with a mini subject. Hihi.

So, when I saw that beautiful wall at SCCC, immediately I asked my husband favor to shot a minimal photo just like I shot my husband photo.

Let's see what are the picture that I'm talking about.

This is a minimal picture of my husband
The best part is, I've got candy cotton that can be used as additional props to make the picture looks a little bit nice, I guess. What do you think? Do you get what I mean by a minimal photo? hihihi

I'm a happy woman because, on that day, I've got a new book, cotton candy and a nice minimal picture with a wall of fame. Hahaha

Orang raya gie tengok korban , aku sibuk exhibition buku and wall of fame =p

Yummy cotton candy

Emoji detected ­čĺâ

Minimal OOTD =p
Once we arrived at my husband grandmother home. The photo shoot still going on around the house. Hihihi... #sebabsayatakadakampung #nakjugakgambaradafeelingkampung #suamiterpaksalayan

Here some of my pictures featuring kampung environment. For Hari Raya, I'm wearing full modern batik baju kurung from @parcaapparels and fluff duck scarves shawl from @theduckgroup.

Fluff from duck scarves is a cotton material. The material quite see through, so you need to wear an inner neck if you wanted to donning an effortless style. If not, you can just donning it just like me. Wrap around your neck. Because the material is not easily slipped off, you don't need to use a lot of pins to secure your shawl. =)

Selamat Hari Raya from us <3
That's all for now. Till my next post.

Happy holiday, all. <3

Thank you for reading.

P/s: Do you like Hall of Fame by The Script feat Will.I.Am song? I really love that song. A motivation song for me and the song is my workout or running song as well. =D
