Amazon Store Now Open

So the blog now has an Amazon store (SHOP link on top bar). I’ve listed all, if not most of the stuff I talk about on the blog. I’ve also listed other products I’ve used or would have used instead. Hopefully it will make your Amazon shopping experience a lot faster. Stuff I list, but not in the store is not available on but the links are in the respective posts. Let me know if I’ve missed out anything. Happy shopping!




daily make-up routine

I’m not the sort that wears make up on a daily basis and I probably never will unless my job calls for it. Basically, I don’t like having lots of things on my face and neither does my face like it too. But as I’ve gotten older and my skin is not as “flawless” as before (it never really was but there was a short period of my life where I could get away with just using sunblock), I realize that for my own self-esteem’s sake and maybe for the sake of my husband and child, I should at least look like I am putting in some effort into looking presentable.

Balancing Toddler Life and Housework

E is now 18 months and is no longer a baby. I do miss the baby days where she was largely immobile and would stay in one spot and not complain much. Now I have a stomping, running, bopping toddler who wants to be entertained 24/7 (or at least whenever she is awake). E does have her moments were she’s playing/reading on her own, but by and large she wants the attention of someone – usually me.

I changed up my routine a while back (November 2015?) and have been very happy with it since. I have tried a few other products in between but I feel I keep coming back to the ones I’ve listed below. Like before, I try and use budget-friendly green beauty products.

Breastfeeding: my journey thus far

It’s been more than a year since I started breastfeeding E, and yes, it does feel like forever, but when I reflect on it, it was just yesterday that E first latched on, my nipples were sore as heck, I cried because E wouldn’t latch on and struggled for the next 2 weeks or so till E started latching on again. The story is much longer that the few lines I just typed.

Mommyhood Reflections: 0-6 months

As a first time mom and complete noob when it comes to babies (give me an 18 month old any day), I am thankful each day E is still alive.

It was quite scary in the beginning and every mistake we (hubs and I) made along the way just made life even more terrifying. But I have to say, one’s confidence grows with each day. I’m still not the most confident mom, but I am less worried about E and what is to come.
