Just Me & My Gaston Luga Clässic Backpack

 

Backpacks are a must-have for me when it comes to having to carry lots of stuff or when you are going out with your children and you really need to be as hands-free as possible. So I was searching for women’s backpack recommendation and the rest is history. Needless to say, I was thrilled to receive my Gaston Luga Clässic backpack in black, all the way from Stockholm. Please check out my unboxing video on Instagram!

Coach buys over Kate Spade for US$2.4 Billion

 

When news of Kate Spade starting to close its Saturday stores in Singapore hit, I thought that the designer label was in troubled waters. Never mind that they said it was a move to concentrate more on their Kate Spade New York brand. But I guess things are looking better for them after Coach, another designer handbag maker, said it would buy Kate Spade & Co for a whooping $2.4 billion (S$3.4 billion).

Christmas Shopping

 

December is one of the months where most of us folks tend to spend a lot and I am no exception. Maybe it is due to the holiday season where everyone is a in festive mood. Not to forget the temptation of all the year end sales with irresistible bargains. And it is difficult not to get tempted when you have been scrimping and saving up the whole year. This seems like the perfect opportunity to pamper yourself a little, only to realise that you can’t stop the moment you begun.

Exabra from Cle Maison – Why I Have Decided To Invest In A Quality Bra

 

I shall be honest about my bra choices and admit that I usually do not spend anything beyond S$50 on them. And that is simply because I do not see any reason to get quality bras. That was until I went to Cle Maison and found out why we all should invest in a good bra.

Sometimes we get too preoccupied with the loss of collagen on our face and forget that as the collagen in our breasts gives way, the elasticity in our breasts declines as well. Even if you are like me with really average sized breasts, do not be fooled that our tiny itty bites will not sag as well.

As we age and go on to our 30s, our skin stretches and loses elasticity which eventually leads to the drooping of the breasts. The changes in our breasts can be prominent if we have gone through pregnancy and breastfed our babies. This is why prevention at an early stage is necessary. I guess it still is not too late for me to right things now!

Why I No Longer Buy Clothes From Taobao

 

As my previous blog entries have shown and proven that I am a budding Taobao enthusiast. If you do not know what Taobao is then you must be living under a rock all these while. Simply put, Taobao is like the China version of eBay except that things are dirt cheap which makes the quality really questionable.

I started out buying books, toys and children’s clothes from Taobao for Asher as I was attracted by the really low prices. And I was delighted when the quality surpassed my expectations. Soon, I was buying other stuff such as mobile casings, cushions and even bed sheets. My best buy was probably the tempered glass phone protector for my mobile. It came packaged in a metal tin and cost only around SGD3-4, so you can imagine how much the local market is marking it up.

In Nov 2015, I donated most of my office work wear thinking that I would probably not need them in the near future. At that point of time, I had been a stay home mother for around 2 years. But who knew, I rejoined the workforce come the start of 2016 and that was when I decided to turn to Taobao to purchase clothes.You look at photos like these accompanied by attractive prices and you are so tempted to cart them all out.

But then China sites have this notorious reputation for really terrible quality knockoffs for clothes. They take photos from other brand sites and make you believe that you will be buying a piece that looks exactly like what is shown on the model. But when you receive it, you are utterly confused as to if this is was the beautiful dress you had ordered or a cleaning rag which they had mistakenly sent over.

To be fair to the sellers on Taobao, I had some hits despite the misses. There have been times where I felt like I had scored a great bargain, a fabulous looking piece for a good price. But other times, I’m just left feeling disappointed and fat. Just to share, here are some of my misses: Continue reading

Congrats to myself, I have survived working for a quarter of the year 2016. Gosh, time really does flies especially when you are juggling work and family. While this may come easily for the super women, it has been a struggle for me. I have gotten so used to the stay at home mom lifestyle that it is taking me some getting used to. I think I miss my freedom and afternoon naps the most.

Random Updates… Shopping Update, New Eyebrows & other random stuff

 

So this week marked the 2 months since I’ve started working, it feels like it has been so much longer than just mere 2 months only. I’m still trying my best to adjust back to the working lifestyle. Some days I’m not so loving it and feel robbed of my time, gone are the days where I could eat in bed or settle for a nap between 2 to 3pm. And yet as the weeks progressed, I feel like I have my “adulthood” back. I get to do adult things such as catch up friends over lunch. This was a rarity during my days as a Stay Home mother. I might even graduate to chilling out one fine day.
