I’m Gonna Pamper Myself At Niks Maple Laser Clinic

I have been spending so much time with Asher, bringing him places that I have neglected myself lately. And since Mother’s day is approaching so as a reward for myself, I have decided to get pampered with beauty treatments from Nik Maple Clinic. I will be getting a Clear + Brilliant Facial and Liposonix treatment done.

This photo shows how dull and tired my skin looks, oh the woes of a mother to an active toddler. And this is why I need the Clear + Brilliant facial to perk up my complexion! It is a revolutionary, gentle laser skin care treatment, clinically proven to fight the effects of aging skin. After the treatment, I can expect a radiant, youthful glowing complexion that shows improved tone and texture as well as a reduction in the appearance of pores.

And that’s not all, I will be also indulging in a Liposonix session at Niks Maple Laser Clinic. It is a safe, non-surgical and non-invasive treatment that uses high-intensity focused ultrasound to treat and eliminate stubborn fat around your waistline (abdomen and love handles) or arms, thighs, bra fat and knees without surgery. After an hour’s treatment, I can lose that 1 inch of fat off my area of concern! I love how the advancement of technology has brought us such revolutionary treatments which offer instant results within just ONE treatment.

Yup, so I simply can’t wait for my appointment. This mama’s gonna get herself all beautified and pretty for Mother’s day!

Prive Aesthetics 360 ShapeUp Program Recap!

I used to own many tight fitting dresses before I had gotten pregnant. After delivering, I had stopped wearing most of them even though I did manage to lose most of my pregnancy weight eventually. I just felt very conscious of my tummy and would prefer to wear something that could conceal it. But not anymore…

Ever since I had undergone the Prive 360 Shape Up Program, I have managed to slim down my tummy. I am now much more confident wearing these body-hugging dresses.

Lost inches off my tummy!

I just had my final session at Prive Aesthetics before the CNY. I thought I won’t be able to survive having to eat and live a healthier lifestyle but I managed somehow! Just to share some tips on how I tried to control my diet. I thought it would be tough on me because I am quite a pig and I never control what I eat.

Throughout this period, I had abstained from fast food and bubble tea. To cut down on the amount of food I take in daily, I even resorted to using a bowl instead of a large plate. I am so used to doing this now, it feels like a normal daily routine for me. And I guess all these along with the laser lipo treatment and fat burner supplements have helped me to lose more inches!

Check out how much more I had lost off my tummy!  Continue reading

2nd Session With Prive Aesthetics, Check Out How Many Inches I’ve Lost!

I just had my 2nd session of treatment at Prive Aesthetics for the 360 ShapeUp Programme. This time round, we had it done on my thighs. If you have not read about my first treatment experience, do check it out HERE. We had the Laser Lipo done on my thighs, unlike traditional Liposuction, this treatment is non-invasive and hence, much safer. The lasers would break down fat cells which was then released through the lymph nodes. Margie took my measurements again so that we could do a comparison after the treatment.

Guess what? I lost 1cm on my right thigh and 1.5cm on my left thigh. In fact, the results were quite obvious. These are the photos I took immediately after the treatment in the toilet. Continue reading

Would You Go For A Liposuction?

I was reading this article off My Fat Pocket’s portal about Plastic Surgery still regarded as a taboo in 2014 with it’s main topic surrounding an invasive procedure called Liposuction.

 So what is Liposuction? According to Wikipedia, ” Liposuction, also known as lipoplasty (“fat modeling”), liposculpture suction lipectomy (“suction-assisted fat removal”) or simply lipo, is a cosmetic surgery operation that removes fat from many different sites on the human body. Areas affected can range from the abdomen, thighs and buttocks, to the neck, backs of the arms and elsewhere.

If the definition and above illustration isn’t enough to make you squeamish. Then this might just make you think twice about considering it. Continue reading

I was excited and nervous at the same time but their friendly consultant, Margie made me feel just at home there. I told Margie about my pregnancy weight gain woes and my current lifestyle. I wanted to know what solutions Prive Aesthetics could offer to aid me in my quest for a slimmer body.

She shared with me about the 360 ShapeUp Programme, which is a specially tailored slimming programme that involves medically-approved machines for slimming and contouring treatments, a nutritious diet plan, all-natural health supplements and daily exercise. I was given my own journal to track my daily food intake as part of the programme.

Help For Mummies Who Want To Get Back In Shape

Congratulations, you are now a mother to a beautiful baby. You check out your reflection in the mirror and is rudely shocked by what you see. Many women expect to magically shrink back into their pre-pregnancy size soon after delivery. Blame those celebrity new mums for strutting around in their bikini-ready bodies.

But unfortunately for most of us, things are not that simple. So now, all you see peering back at you are a bulging tummy that still looks five months pregnant. The flabby skin hanging out in areas of your body which you have never seen before. And as if to add injury to insult, cellulite marks adorn your stomach, butt and thighs. Oh the horrors!

IMG_20131205_095915

Being able to get back in shape is what most women worry about. Even for myself, staying in shape is a tough call given that I am so busy juggling family life, work and the baby. I must admit that the last time I did any exercise was prenatal yoga (if you even consider that exercise). All of my time has been devoted to nurturing baby Asher. And I do not exactly watch what I eat, couple that with no exercise at all, it is no surprise that I have developed a small tummy. Furthermore, if you are a new mother, your doctor would warn you against subjecting your body to vigorous exercise. So this is where The Body Firm comes in to help mothers like you & me.

My Slimming 101 Experience; Say Hello Again To Flat Tummy

I used to be slim but after having baby Asher, it’s a whole different tale. Add on a hectic lifestyle that includes a full-time job, blogging, managing an online store while at the same time juggling family and a dog. It’s almost impossible to find time for myself, much less to lose weight.

182601_10150180070384606_585242_n-2

So when I first learnt about Slimming 101 and their philosophy behind slimming through TCM (Traditional Chinese Medicine) principles incorporated with European botanicals for losing weight healthily, Delighted!  Can’t wait to try out this wholesome, natural method of losing weight as opposed to consuming pills.

P1010311

Slimming 101 uses high-tech weight loss machines combined with “Qi” philosophy and meridian theory. Have a peace of mind knowing that the treatments are approved by a certified Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) Practitioner. To help you maintain and improve body condition, a slimming diet plan would be incorporated. And you do not need to worry about weight rebound. Some clients even lose up to 16cm and 1kg in one session!

Slimming 101, is located conveniently at the 4th floor of Funan IT Mall, just a stone’s throw away from Cityhall MRT. Upon reaching the centre, I was greeted by their friendly staff. My weight & body mass was taken and further analyzed by the consultant to decide what was most suitable for me.

P1010313

After all these months, I was still 3 kg heavier than my pre-pregnancy weight. At 55kg, I thought that losing that 5kg to reach 50kg would be ideal for me. I guess when it comes to weight, we all like to round down to the lowest number possible.

2013-08-27 08.53.15_resized

However, according to the body mass analyzer, my ideal fat mass was 11kg while my current fat mass is 14kg. Therefore, the ideal and most healthy weight for me was to lose just 3kg. Anything more than that was deemed unhealthy.

I also learnt from my friendly consultant that Slimming 101’s treatments aids in breaking down visceral fats.

What fat I hear you say? Isn’t all kind of fats the same? I learnt that there are 2 kinds of fats stored in our bodies; visceral fats and subcutaneous fats. If you work out frequently, the fats which you lose are the subcutaneous fats. However, it is very difficult to visceral fats through regular exercise. But fret not as Slimming 101’s treatments are meant to help you lose all the unwanted visceral fats

What exactly are visceral fats? Visceral fat, also known as organ fat packed in between internal organs and torso.

visceral-fat

From my research online I found out that it is almost impossible to lose your Visceral Fat!! Even if you starve yourself or by exercising. This machine can target visceral fat =DD

I was recommended 3 different types of treatment to aid me in my quest for my idea weight. The sauna followed by their signature Meridian Marine Therapy after which, I would have the Bio Lipolysis.

Meridian Marine Therapy includes body scrub and acupressure massage.

The primary function of body scrub is to remove dead skin cells to refresh and even out skin tone for smooth and radiant skin. At Slimming 101, maximum result is delivered with the use of natural ingredient, such as Marine Sea Salt.

The sauna helps to improve blood circulation, flushes out toxins and also help burn calories through sweating.

 IMG-20130824-WA0000_resized

After my sweat-out in the sauna, I was ushered into a therapy room to have the Meridian Marine Therapy done. It consisted of a sea salt scrub followed by a wrap. Time to sweat it all out again.

The sea salt scrub 1. Will remove dead skin cells 2. Aids in bringing out the excess water retention under your skin by sweating. With less unwanted water in your body ( not your body fluid ) naturally you will be less swollen and lighter in weight.

On top of that to make sure that every customer is well taken care of , each treatment room had a TV on so I was kept preoccupied with the Korean F4 drama that was being aired and forgotten about the sweating part.

 P1010316

Once I was done with the wrap, I was given a fresh set of robes and towels to change into after my shower. Looks like the sea salt scrub was not only good for aiding weight loss but it also left my skin feeling silky smooth! After washing up, I had my body measurements taken before I started the Bio Lipolysis treatment.

All I had to do was to lie on a bed and relax while the therapist placed small wire-connected pads around my tummy, thighs and arms. Once the machine was switched on, I could feel a gentle pulsation coming through the pads. This treatment helps you to break down fats without you having to sweat it out in a gym. You can expect enhanced skin tissue elasticity, better blood circulation and strengthened immune system. The Bio-Lipolysis treatment is just like having a Chinese Acupuncture session but without the awful needles or any pain. It’s a non-invasive treatment that is suitable for everyone.

After the treatment session, I had my measurements and weight taken again. The inches loss through this treatment are real and not due to loss of water weight. I lost 300g during the session and was told that it may not be significant but that was because from the start I didn’t have much weight to lose. I think this is a great start for me and I look forward to my 2nd session with Slimming 101. Bye bye flabby tummy & hello washboard flatness!

For now you can get 6 session of meridian therapies for only$28 !! Hurry call and book your appointment now.

Staying Slim & Sexy with BottomSlim

I’m not sure about you but I’m feeling guilty from all the chinese new year feasting. And I’ll let you in on a secret, I still have 3 bottles of pineapple tarts just waiting to be devoured. So it isn’t a surprise that I’m developing a flabbier tummy. I would joke with the hubby that I have a “beer belly” now. It’s an inside joke 😉

If you notice your love handles getting more obvious or you are growing ones when you never had this issue before all thanks to the Chinese New Year feasting. Perhaps, you just feel unattractive and depressed whenever you catch sight of your reflection in the mirror. Maybe you sit too much in the office and notice that your waist, butt and thighs are getting chunky. Well, fret not! I am excited to share with you about BottomSlim; the pioneer in lower body slimming.

This is especially so for those of you who totally dread working out (like me) or just don’t have the time to do anything about your figure. As we all know, even with exercise, some areas are just too difficult to reduce. You have to be really committed and how many of us just simply give up along the way. So why not just relax at BottomSlim and let the treatments do their wonders.

Located conveniently in the heart of Orchard road at Ngee Ann City, that’s where you can find BottomSlim’s flagship branch at level 5. It boosts a relaxing ambience with it’s minimalism decor and cosy seating area.

There’s even a kids play area where your children can hang out with Daddy while you are having your treatments done. Really thoughtful of them.

I had a consultation done prior to the treatment. This is to determine the areas of concern I had and which treatments would be suitable to tackle these issues. My consultant was friendly and pleasant, explaining everything in detail to me as well as answering all of the queries I had.


As I had just given birth recently last Oct, my main concerns would be my tummy. Because of the pregnancy, my tummy has lost most of its firmness. My hips had also widened and my shorts were getting tighter. Not to mention with all the eating binge due to the festive season, I was starting to worry about not being able to fit my pre-pregnancy bottoms.

My treatments were divided into 3 different ones. The first was for breaking down the fats, a signature treatment – The Tummy, Hips & Thighs Trimmer that is highly popular with all of their customers. Before we begin, my therapist snapped a BEFORE photo. And once the treatment was done, she took another one for comparison. Immediate results could be seen, I noticed my tummy looking slimmer and it felt firmer. Sorry no photos cause I’m still very shy and conscious of my tummy (linea nigra and all). But you can check out below…

That’s an image of one of their clients who managed to achieve a slimmer waistline through their treatments. Amazing, right? Of course, to achieve such desirable results, more than one treatment would be required.

The next treatment I received was a detox session and this was followed by a mask with infra-ray to enable the nutrients of this mask to penetrate in deeper. The mask had a cool, minty sensation which I like.

All the treatments at BottomSlim aim to give you a slimmer and slender lower body through the breaking down of fats, detox, reducing cellulite, re-sculpting and firming. Don’t we all wish we had a figure like their spokesperson, Faraliza who was Miss Singapore 2008? She is one of their customers too and she lost 20kg in mere 4 months.

Having a slim figure like her would give one confidence, the ability to fit all types of clothing especially those tagged free size and at the same time look good in shorts, mini skirts and most importantly the sexy bikini!

Did I also mention that BottomSlim won the Cozycot award for best post-natal slimming? So mummies, you know where to go to now.

All in all, I enjoyed my session at BottomSlim. Their consultants are friendly, knowledgeable and not pushy at all. After going through pages of Before & After images of their customers, I’m very tempted to go for further treatments to regain my pre-pregnancy figure.
