How I Got Rid of My Acne

I've had troubled skin ever since I was young. I was one of those unlucky girls that had pimples all over my face and body. 

I went on so many facials - Dermalogica, Sothys, Philip Wain - you name it, I did it.

I tried so many products - Lamer, Shiseido, SKII - all expensive but none worked.

And finally, I took Roaccutane for 6 months just prior to my wedding. It worked temporarily, but once I stopped the pimples came back with a vengeance. However, it did clear up my back acne up till now. So, yay for that!

While watching my wedding video for this post, I was SO shocked to see that my acne was so severe. I didn't notice in the photos since they're all airbrushed. And I actually forgot that it was that bad! No wonder I never leave the house without concealer then!

Towards the end of 2011, I was looking for acne treatments. I remembered I was really stressed out with my skin condition. It was then that my sister told me about

At that time, my sister was experiencing a sudden breakout on her forehead and cheeks. She found Dan's simple (and cheap) regime and followed it exclusively. It only took a couple of months for her pimples to clear up. So I thought, if it works on her, why not just give this a try.

And I thank God that I did!

My skin improves drastically, a month into the regime. I didn't get new pimples. There were only existing ones that was drying up and blackheads on my nose especially.

After a few months, my skin completely cleared up. There was no pimples and no blackheads. Just scars and enlarged pores.

After I came home from my short stint in London, my friends commented that my skin was flawless. Never, in my whole life, would I have ever imagined hearing people saying that about my skin!

Now, I am still pimple free. I do have some blackheads on my nose, but a good scrub and mask usually takes care of that. My scars are lighter, but some are still visible. But, I am not complaining!

I am so happy to have found the skincare regime that works perfectly for my skin! I don't even own a concealer now. Woopppp.


If you suffer from acne, please give this regime a try! InsyaAllah, it'll work on you too :)

So, are you ready to see my before photos? Here goes.....

I cringe looking at these. Taken 3 years ago, during and post wedding. Pimples were so red and angry! 

And this is me now! :)

This photo is not filtered or airbrushed at all. I wasn't wearing any makeup too. You can still see some scars on my forehead and cheek, but overall I'm all cleared! :) 
So, there you go! My secret is out. Good luck trying!

Fashion Styles: Blouse

If you have been following me on this blog, you’d probably know that I’m such a girly girl. I just love being a girl. Seriously, what’s not to love? We have the best in fashion. Fashion is dedicated to us, women! From hair bands and clips to shoes and stockings, and everything in between.
I had many fashion phases growing up. The “Clueless” inspired fashion; checkered pants, preppy blouses and small furry backpacks, short dresses with platforms ala Baby Spice and so much more. But, as I grow older, I stuck to a classic and simple style. My husband loves it when I’m dressed in a simple skinny jeans/pants and blouse. And that has been my staple since I got married. I admit – I would love to be more adventurous in my styles (like in my younger days) but I don’t think my husband can tolerate that. Lol.
Over the years of experimenting, I have learned what’s good on me and what’s not, what I like and what I dislike. I prefer blouses; smart casual mostly to cotton tshirts. After turning 3…

Hello Rizman Ruzaini, Bye Bye Syaiful Baharim!

Shocking kan? After my last post on Syaiful Baharim.

So what happened?

Ok, yesterday evening me and mom went to Jakel to get the lace. Sampai je Jakel, pegi la kat tingat kain exclusive tu, focus hanya untuk mencari lace. I wanted a simple, CHEAP, non-beaded lace. Any kind, asalkan cantik. The SA who helped us, who happens to be the owner and Mom's friend, mestilah tunjuk yang beaded Solstiss je. Without a doubt, Solstiss lace IS exquisite. Memang tengok muka automatically berseri-seri, bibir tersenyum-senyum. But, boy, the price! MasyaAllah..!

I was actually quite good; I actually said NO because the laces that she showed me are all very expensive, jenis ribu2 PER METRE! And I was looking to buy 4 metres of lace! So I said to Kak S (the owner), I prefer the simpler one, no beads, tak payah la Solstiss2 ni. So, she showed me some, plain, simple and sweet, I didnt have a problem getting just that.


Kak S: Who's your designer nanti?

Me: Syaiful Baharim..

Kak S: Oh, Syaiful. Di…


Inspired by my friend's wedding saree, I went searching for this beautiful material.

And look at what I found!

This one! It's white and heavily beaded, perfect for a simple baju kurung. I would probably use this for my akad nikah. That is if I had another chance of doing my wedding all over again :p

This light brown+gold-ish sheer saree screams GLAMOROUS! Imagine that for your reception dress, with some gold detailing, you can be one glamorous bride! *love*

I love this grey beaded saree as well. Very very chic! And the best thing about grey? It matches a lot of other colours to bring out different moods.

Like if you pair it with this pink saree for your bridemaids/entourage/family members, you'd achieve a very chic but sweet look.

Just look at that detailing at the bottom! That's just grand!! I would probably use this for my tunang. Oh, or baju raya also nice! Hmmmm...*thinking*

The last two sarees would be nice either for an engagement do'…
