[Giveaway] Love From Amsterdam, London & Paris

Hi readers,

I haven't blog for 2 weeks and I really miss scribbling on this little internet space of mine. First of all, you may notice a little change on this blog. Oh well, I'm just joking. I know there's a huge difference here. Let me go through some rambling and I will get to the giveaway part on the second half of this post.

I did a major facelift on this blog. Most significant part is the blog layout. And I also have changed the URL to www.hertravelogue.com. All these changes are something I've contemplated for a very long time. It doesn't happen overnight like how you see it here.

First of all, I am scrapping Million Dollar Beauty off because I hated the name. As much as this blog being known as Million Dollar Beauty for a long time, it is also a name I came up with in a haste when I was starting this blog. I remember 5 years ago, I was sitting in my living room at 2am in the morning while building this site. A ghost documentary was playing on TV. The ghost busters were trying to investigate paranormal activities on a premise called Million Dollar Lanes Bowling Centre. That is how I got the name for the blog. How ingenious! I intended to change the name later. But readers are coming in really quickly, so I keep on updating and put the idea of changing the name aside.

This is probably the best time for me to fulfill my desire to change the name. It is also a good idea for me to merge my travel blog onto this blog. In terms of operation, it will be a cost-saving effort to maintain only one blog. For the readers, you will also get a variety of content instead of seeing just beauty stuff, I will now blog about travel as well. Occasionally, I will drop some food recipe and home interior content as well.

My decision to have this major revamp is based on:

  • Cost saving effort (saving time and money)
  • Streamline my readerships & followers into one site instead of having two separate sites
  • Rebranding my blog as a "travel & beauty" site
You will expect a lot of interesting posts coming soon. Since this is a major change, I appreciate your comment in letting me know your thoughts on this merging. As a reader, do you think the merge of my two blogs is a good idea or a bad one? 


The past 2 weeks of my hiatus, I have travelled to a few European cities and brought back some souvenirs for my blog readers. I wish I can do a giveaway for everyone of you, but due to resources limitation, I can only have 3 lucky readers to receive the souvenirs. All of the products are beauty products that are not available in Malaysia (this is going to be a travel & beauty blog, what do you expect?) The rules of the giveaway are very simple. I'm not going to ask you to "like" any of my page or "follow" me on any of the social media. I genuinely want to give it to those who read this post, be it to a long-time reader or new reader that stumbled upon this. It all depends on your luck.

How are we going to do this?

Step 1: Take a look at the 3 sets of giveaway and decide which one you'll like to received. 
Step 2: Leave a comment on which set you want (Amsterdam, London or Paris set; any two of it or all of the sets) and include your email in it so that I can contact you later.

Take note: I can only send to Malaysia addresses including Sabah & Sarawak. Winners will be announced on this blog on 31st January 2017 and winners will be contacted via email. 

Amsterdam Set

I have 3 sheet masks from Hema - Blueberry & Raspberry Mud, Grapefruit & Kiwi Self-Heating, & Grapefruit & Jasmine Self-Heating; and a Raspberry Lip Balm. Hema is a huge lifestyle store in Netherlands that sells the cutest stuff ever! I picked the masks because they smell really great (I use them first before picking it up for you guys) and the raspberry lip balm smells really delicious. Though I did not try the lip balm, I'm sure fruit lovers are going to love it. 

London Set

This set consists of a makeup pouch, lip lustre, black eyeliner pencil, blusher stick for lips & cheeks and a mascara from Seventeen. Seventeen is a Boots partner brand in England and they're a brand loved by many English teenagers. This makeup set is one of their Christmas best sellers. Those who loves makeup products are going to love this.

Paris Set

Paris is the home of amazing skincare products because they use ingredients that are high quality and also the water there is unpolluted. I have picked three Caudalie products in this set - Micellar Cleansing Water (a very popular product right now in the beauty world), Lip Conditioner and Hand and Nail Cream. I know that Caudalie is available in Sephora Malaysia, but I bet all these products are not available here. 

Start commenting now on which set or sets you want! Meanwhile, I will be drafting some travelogue for the next posts. See ya!

Hi Jerine, blog revamping and renaming is a big decision and wishing you all the best for a great start for HerTravelogue... since I absolutely love Caudalie therefore Paris Set for me please.

It must be fun to go so many places! Hope to get there one day. I find the London set is really adorable <3

London Set! Love the chrome makeup bag.

I think merging your travel blog and beauty blog together is a great idea. Convenient for the readers and definitely better varieties of content as well.


Rika said...

Hi, Jerine. Wow, whole revamp, looks very different. I think it's good because I mostly visit your site for beauty posts. I would like to see travel posts too so combining both would be easier for me.
I'll choose the Paris set as I haven't the chance to use Caudalie.
Thanks for having this giveaway and all the best for your new blog.

Woot woot! Congrats on the revamp! :D
Ehhh so many people want the London set ah.... Then I pick the Amsterdam set! :P Face masks are perfect for lazy ppl like me who don't regularly moisturise, so it's great for nights when I have an important outing the next day. ;)

Love the revamp! Merging both is good for us, more content to read!

I actually like both of the London and Amsterdam set. I'm a sucker for sheet masks but I also love the holo pouch along with the makeup so I will leave it to you to choose.

Thanks for doing the giveaway. My email is elleally@gmail.com

I'm heading to Amsterdam, London and Paris next week! So excited so do let me know what I shouldn't miss out while I am there. Would love the Paris set <3


Princess Neverland said...

Hello Jerine,

Wow your blog looks so different now! I'm glad that you added travel posts into your blog here, as a reader I would be more than glad to be fed by more informative posts! However, I prefer your previous site name of Million Dollar Beauty because I'm used to that name already T.T

I would like to win Paris set because I have chappy lips so I would really love to try the lip conditioner out.
