Beneath The Blog

Hello, it’s Lau.

For the most part of this year, I’ve been silent..very silent. I didn’t ever intend for this to happen.

Last year, I was posting weekly and devoting all my time and passion into creating a blog I was proud of..And I did that. I can look through all of my posts in 2018, and I can see much passion. I was determined to make Honestlylau something I’d do for a lifetime, but as 2018 was ending, I got side tracked with just life.

I felt like I had no time for blogging, but in actual fact.. I had all the time in the world. I lost the motivation to create content, I have endlessly created and deleted posts because every idea I came up with, just wasn’t good enough.

So, through 2019. I stopped. Without another thought, I left this behind and started being an adult. My whole life changed around and blogging was just not what I wanted to do anymore.

Till one day, I deleted the app. But I never wanted to delete my blog, that was my game over. Deleting it would of been hours of dedication thrown away just because I lost motivation. And who knows if I would of gained it back later on. Months down the line, I could of rekindled this motivation and have this blog going again.

And that’s what I’ve done today. Rekindled my motivation.

This time last year, I lost my motivation. But now, I have it back and I hope you will join me.

Thank you.



We’ll Try This Again.

Hello. It’s Lau. And I again, disappeared from blogging without a trace. And I don’t have quite a reason why. I’d like to get back into it, and hopefully be more on top and not a post once every year.

If you hear from me in a few days, that means I’m trying and that’s almost successful.

See you soon?



Why Is Skincare So Important?

Hey, It’s Lau.

It’s been a while, but I wanted to get back into the swing of things by talking about what really kick started this blog in the first place, skincare.

Now, I want to ask you guys a question..



I’ve had quite a few months off and in that time, I’ve almost bothered with skincare.

Well, what do I mean by almost? I mean that every now and then I’d give myself a facial maybe once every 2 weeks or so but other then that, I don’t really bother. But also I only wear makeup twice a week so I actually don’t see very much point which isn’t great because even if I’m not wearing makeup, it’s nice to help your skin once in a while.

Having a good skincare routine doesn’t at all guarantee that you’ll have great skin, a lot of factors could result in having acne..

Such as; Hormonal imbalance, some medication you’re on or just the simple fact that you don’t really take very much care into your skin and have let oil and dirt build up into your pores.

But having a good skincare routine, and have products that can combat troubled skin will help your skin out. And you don’t need the most expensive products on the market for it to work.

What could work for others may not work for you, even if you have the same skin type.

That’s all I really have to say for now.

Thank you for reading. See you soon.

It Has Been A While


Its Lau. And it’s fair to say that I have abandoned this blog for a number of months. And I’m not exactly sure why, I guess I’ve been busy and my life is completely different now but halfway through Blogmas.. I stopped and I really couldn’t tell you why.

I do want to get back into the swing of things, and it’s likely that I will but do look out for it.

I’m sorry for disappearing for a while and I will be back.
