Finally, J’s fell asleep already and I have some ME time to write again. It’s been a long day for me and hubby cause J’s acting really like a drama king lately. He’s NOT behaving most of the times. And just went to bed about half an hour ago. WHAT A DAY! but anyway, he’s down, and I have a chance to update our new stroll story.
Still on the birthday week. Still rejoicing the new age. Still in the mode of celebration. This afternoon, we visited a new hits brunch place, Henry Lee’s Redfern; a concept cafe kitchen + collaborative space. First impressions, opened kitchen ticked, cool opened space with a massive wall deco, love natural lights, helpful staffs. We ordered Ham In Glove, The Higgs Bacon Blues Burger and sweet potato fries on the side, fresh orang juices to calm the heat of the sun.
The taste though was less than what we expected from the reviews of most of our friends. But, in term of the price and sizes, they’re still in the standard range. Gutted that we didn’t had chance to try their coffees though.J’s was nagging for some “slides riding” – anyone with kids, you MUST know how it sounded. Constant noise that I just wanted to switch off, but I kinda lost that button. Ggggrrrrrrrr….gggrrrrrrr….God taught me how to be more patient day by day, ONLY BY YOUR GRACE. Amen!! So, we gotta go quick. Got into the car and searched for any available parks nearby.
We finally, went to Newtown, stopped by for two nice cuppas at Campos Newtown. The strolls continued, and while J’s having fun running and playing, the parents just gotta do what they have to do and like to do right…We took some #ootd pictures. Here are some of those..
Today, I wore my new split front skirt (PS: excuse my muffin top) But I gotta be honest with you, that as a mum we’re kinda ashamed of it. And we covered it all tightly the whole time ever since gave birth. I guess it’s the time for us to be happy with our own body knowing that its (mum’s tummy) was the place a new life knitted and created. So, embrace it. Feel good about your own body, you have the rights to dress your body the way you wanted.
Well, back to the business; split front skirt – new in trend for this season. Perfect for an active mums who always on the run (not beacuse I’m busy with unending to do lists, but simply because I raise a busy kid) Once in a while you just wanted to wear something more feminine than jeans or tarckies, right? So, here’s a good option for you. Pair it with basic tee and jacket (in case the temperature dropped, Melbournians you know what I’m talking about aye) And always, sneakers for “chasing game”.
And braids to add a lil bit street style to your look won’t hurt. 🙂
And LOVE LOVE LOVE the details of this basic tee by Finders Keepers. Seriously. Who doesn’t? ><

Last but not least, I and J had such a funny silly conversation in the middle of the shooting sessions. It made us do some awkward pose with our hands too. What is it J? “a whisker on your chinagin?” Yeahh he speaks a lot nowadays, I mean with his own languages and interpretation. And my brains are still working hard to keep up with his complicated smart convo. See you on the next strolls! Good night. xx
