THE WORTH OF MATERNITY PHOTOS

It has been a bliss to carry this bun inside my uterus for the past 8 months. And again! I am still stoked of woman’s body; its ability to grow and nurture life. And to realise that it is my own body, it even make it more special to me. I AM BLESSED to experience pregnancies at my age.

For that reason, I am so determined to do maternity shots this time round. I didn’t have one with my firstborn for some and many reasons. And honestly, I do regret for that matter. The more I think about maternity photos, the more I feel that it is worth it to have one. And here’s why?

Celebrate your body

Since the first day, the sperm met the egg, your body has been gearing hard with many adjustments and changes; big and small. For that reason, your body deserves a celebration. 10 months of carrying a watermelon is surely a hard work. So, throw the biggest celebration to your own body. Its doing really well.

Pregnancy is evanescent

I know how the last 4 weeks of pregnancy feels like. It feels like one year or forever. But, hey! the moment the baby’s out, you will surely miss this pregnancy; the burs, the punches, the kicks, the bloats, the heartburns, the craves, the connections. Nothing compares to the deep connection build within a mother and her womb.

Pregnancy is magical

I would say this again and again. Pregnancy is one of the most enchanted moment I have ever experienced. The fertile and maternal glow of a pregnant woman is so beautiful and sexy, I wish more people will see this. Despite the weight gain, stretch marks, hyper-pigmentation or whatever else you’re dealing with, there’s something so strong, maternal and radiant about a pregnant woman.

So, what about you? Are you thinking to have one too? I hope you do and won’t be left with the same regrets like me.

Beyond that, I hope every woman will truly embrace her inner goddess and let them shine!

Thanking my talented husband for taking these stunning photos of us. He is truly the best! He is a keeper, isn’t he? Below we share our moments. enjoy!! x

6 COMFORT SAVVY TIPS WHEN CHOOSING MATERNITY SWIMSUIT

Swimwear season is here and you are pregnant. I SURE AM…. 

duh

Du-uhhh.. I feel you. sorry not sorry.

But there’s no reason to worry, take pride in your pregnant body. And find comfortable suit for your body type.

6 Comfort Tips – when choosing maternity swimwear

  1. Go Upsize – NO. I am not only talking about our Maccas meal size. I am talking about our suit size. Ha. As your breasts, busts and hip grow, it is very important to find the right size suit for you too – make sure it is not squeezing and pinching.
  2. Go Higher – a suit with higher – cut leg openings will make your legs seem longer because of the higher cut draw he eye upward, and in revealing part of your lower hip it creates the illusion of length.
  3. Avoid High Neck – high neck suits tend to press breasts down.
  4. Enough Coverage – make sure your suit provides you with enough coverage which will comfortably cover your bottom and bust as you move, bend, and sit. There’s nothing more annoying than a suit that keeps riding up or shifting, and that you have to tug at constantly.
  5. Layering – doesn’t make you larger if you do it right. A long tunic will help elongate you. And it gives an extra stylish factor to your summer shots.
  6. Don’t be ordinary – go for some patterns and colors. Just because you’re pregnant doesn’t mean you should fade into the background! But be careful with your choices. Avoid bold and large patterns, because they will zoom in your body parts. Instead go with smaller patterns when you’re pregnant. Go with smaller prints, piping, and horizontal stripes along or just under the bust. Color wise; choose a suit with blocks of color, or one solid bright color rather than wild patterns that overwhelm. Dare to stand out among the crowds. because you are beautiful.

Top Picks

Which one is your favourite? whatever you pick, one thing we all should remember; to embrace our own bodies for a miraculous life is being knitted inside your growing belly. You are beautiful and powerful woman.

Enjoy the season!! X

 

Love,

DRESS YOUR BUMP IN ALL ONE COLOR

It’s the easiest way to get dressed in the morning. 

There is no secret trick to wearing monochromatic outfits. As long as you have tops, bottoms, and accessories in the same color (different shades of the color work too), dressing in all one hue is super simple and looks really chic.

Well, since I am pregnant, let’s keep wearing BLACK. The instinct of most pregnant woman is to dress in dark colors, such as black or navy, because they think it makes them looks slimmer. “But, color actually really flatters your body,” says one of my fashionista friend.

Yesterday, I had a chance to date my best guy again. So, I gave it this style a try. AND I AM LOVING IT. I feel beautiful and slightly slimmer than my actual current body weight. so….here it is!! MY “BUMP STYLE IN ALL ONE COLOR” VERSION.

UHHHHH YES! Comfort is still on my top list. Baggy tops and loose pants. These combo are most probably the only basics that fit my body these days. And I have no regrets to collect many of them. They are easy to pair with anything in any season. Most say “bigger clothes will make you looks larger during pregnancy”. And I do agree with the statement. So, I decided to wear my favourite mules to give slimmer illusion to my body. It’s a hot day with my hot date. Heels, you do good, you won’t hurt me. Casually pair them with a similar color sling bag then finish it off with a big statement; sailor cap and jumbo hula hoops. (Some outfits are from old collections of the brand, I attached the “shop similar” link below).

Well, that’s my whole look. Now, it’s time to vote. YAY or NAY? leave your comments below. I am being serious. X

Love,

Kenny

4 WAYS TO FIGHT OFF THE WINTER COLDS

Hey guys! Hope you are doing well these days. Hope the house is coping well with the weather transition lately.

Well…with the winter months fast-approaching, kids will soon be picking up those dreaded winter coughs and colds. To help stay on top of your kids’ splutters and tackle any nasties this winter, it is important to stock up the medicine cabinet with the winter essentials! Well, the philosophy says… better prepared than sorry. For this matter, I trust Little Range Winter Package which includes the following:

  • Little Coughs
  • Little Eyes
  • FESS Little Nose

Below I shared some tips to fight off this cold months:

  1. Stock up the right food produces for the season – build a strong immune system is very important for the season. Stock up some great powerful and colourful range of fruits and vegs to your pantry, such as, citrus, kiwi, spinach, broccoli, carrots, garlic and ginger. They are good for immune system. Try also including one daily serving of probioitic-rich foods/snacks to their meal plan, such as yoghurt (plain, unsweetend is best), plain greek yoghurt, and miso soup. Add them to their fruit salad bowl or let them have a dip.
  2. Practice good hygiene – children often forget basic hygiene practices like washing their hands and covering their mouth when they cough. Make sure you remind them wash their hands before meals or sharing food. It’s also common for children to rub their noses and eyes. Be sure to have tissues at the ready for their noses and eye wipes handy such as Little Eyes to help clear out the residue from around the eyes. And children are notorious for copying their parents behaviour, be mindful about your hygiene practices to make sure you’re being the best.
  3. Clear out the noses and coughs – The nose is the perfect breeding ground for bugs that can cause colds and flus. Clear out kids’ noses with a saline non-medicated nasal spray such as FESS Little Noses. This will not only help children breathe better, but will also flush away any nasties and clear the nasal passageways. And for those with a cough that can keep everyone up at night use a natural cough syrup such as Little Coughs, which contains ivy leaf extract to offer soothing relief from coughs and chesty congestion. Sleep is one of the best immune boosters of all!
  4. Stay dehydrated – it can be hard to remember to stay hydrated during the cooler months, so soups come in handy in getting varied nutrition and plenty of liquid into our little ones. It is necessary to get creative on preparing the meal for little ones, because they are too creative in picking on the green and non-green stuffs on the plate. It is our responsibility to make sure we prepare a comfort meal for their eyes and their tummy. Meatballs are always the best option to hide some veggies, miso soup paste is a winner for everyone’s tongue, and buckwheat soba makes a healthier choice than pasta. You might our family’s favourite “Miso Soup with Meatballs and Soba Noodles”. Recipe attached on the next blog post under “creates”. Check them out.

Lastly, here’s my direct review on the Little Range Winter Products itself. My son got some cold & flu symptoms since last Easter long weekend. So, I gave him a try of Little Range products. He has been using these products for the past few days, and both of us were very happy with the outcome. Little Fess Noses helps him clear up the blocked nose, Little Coughs improves his sleep during the night, and mommy loves how light and handy the Little Eyes handy package is, it can fit to any type/shape of mommy’s bags. Side note: J loves the flavour and the syrup texture of Little Coughs too. Another happy day. happy kid. happy mommy.
