Before motherhood, I had a skincare regime that I followed and kept up – cleanser, scrub, toner, cream, eye cream, mask, etc etc etc. Now having a 4yo in the house means she would knock on my bathroom door, yelling “Mom, can I have a cookie before dinner?” My home pampering time is practically zero. I’m sure there are Mommies out there have had such experience. We would scramble, slap on some cream and done. I have came out with this list so to make skincare routine a lot easier.
Believe it or not, I started writing this article months ago. Hence, the photos are not exactly the most updated of my current skincare routine. Continue reading
Living in a country that’s humid all year round, I have (almost) given up searching for a conditioner that conditions and yet doesn’t weigh my fine fizzy hair down. Hence when a friend recommended Percy & Reed’s hair products to me, I was not really keen. I mean I had tried oil, serum, volumising shampoo and conditioner, nothing seems to help! That explains why I bought a travel-sized conditioner instead of full-sized. Continue reading
The advice from our friends was to change password. Yes, our daughter has learnt to unlock the iPad through observation. She thinks it’s ok to learn to unlock because that’d mean she does not need to bother us. Continue reading
As a sufferer of eczema and skin sensitivity, I’m constantly on the lookout of lotions, creams, cleansers and body washes that are gentle on the skin. If a body product seems to aggravate my eczema, I’ll move on to a new product. I’m pretty sure this NIVEA In-Shower Skin Conditioner isn’t a new product and I probably had walked pass it gazillion of times. What triggered me to try out this product was a photo of it on Instagram when I was searching hashtag #nivea. I thought why not give it a try!
If you have been following my Instagram, you probably notice that I have been eating quite healthy breakfast lately. I have always love granola that’s found in boxed cereal. Back then, I didn’t know what were those. After a few Googling, I realised it was really easy to homemade these nutritious snacks! Continue reading
Recently, I looked through the photos of my girl and myself when she was barely a year old. Oh gosh! I looked really drained, tired and aged. I neglected to look after myself. Mainly because there was a shift in my role in my household – I had became a Mom. My priority was my girl. I was adjusting to the change. Many times, I just didn’t feel like dolling up when I was out with her. That was because – I believe all Moms will agree – I simply had no time! Getting the little one ready to head out involved a lot of time and energy. By the time she was ready, we just wanted to quickly hop into our car and go go go! Hence, I came out with this list for all Mommies out there, especially first-time Moms. Well, at least it’s my essentials when I’m in a rush. The goal of this list is to make you look refresh and put together with 6 essential makeup, and be done in 10 minutes! Continue reading
Parents who bring their children out to dinner dates with friends, please raise your hands. We do. Always. In a perfect scenario, we would have conversations with friends, small conversations, laughing, wine… that’s in my dream. Ha! Remember how many times you had to look for markers, crayons and caps under the table; or needed the person seated at the next table to help you out? Can you imagine my joy when I saw these activities craft booklets in Muji stores?! Well, I know there are such activities booklets from bookstores, I had seen them. But these aren’t quite the same. The illustrations are creative, the idea is creative, it’s simulating and it allows the child to use her imaginations. Continue reading
